Reading v Tottenham

Postby Conner99 » Mon Sep 10, 2012 8:21 pm

Reading gave the current league leaders a fright as they went down 4-2 at Stamford Bridge , a 2-1 half time lead had the travelling fans hoping a major shock may happen , but it was a controversial decision that Reading manager Brian McDermott was unhappy with that allowed Chelsea to take the lead and go on to win the game ..the linesman made a mistake for the third goal , he will be disappointed when he looks at it , he is a clear yard off side Torres , when he scores ."



Tottenham had a sense of deja vu as a late equaliser cost them yet again , Norwich scored with just 5 mins left to deny Andre Villas-Boas his first win as Tottenham boss , the 1-1 draw was made worse when Tom Huddlestone was shown a straight red card for a mistimed tackle on Norwich midfielder Jonny Howson ..the fans at White Hart Lane must also be thankful for the brilliance of 41 yr old Brad Freidal who saved Tottenham on a few occasions .

Will be interesting to see our lineup for this one. Adebayor hopefully will be fit enough to start, will some of the other new boys like Dempsey, Dembele, and Lloris?

Dembele has to start, we can't keep playing Livermore, he's just not good enough.

------------------Friedel

Walker Vertonghen Gallas Ekotto

-------------Dembele Sandro

Lennon----------Gylfi-----------Bale

----------------Adebayor

I'd rather start with Defoe upfront than Adebayor.

Bale and Walker need to start putting in some decent performances for my Fantasy football team or will have to sell them!

Defoe may score goals but having him upfront as the lone striker doesn't work, he can't hold up the ball well enough. Therefore we put extra pressure on the defence as the opponents have much more time on the ball. With Adebayor upfront we manage to keep hold of the ball and bring Bale and Lennon into play.

If Defoe carries on upfront by himself, I'll start getting frustrated, but I can imagine AVB changing it up soon.

You would of thought we'd of had too much for Norwich and WBA at home as well but, Norwich out played us. A win is very important to get our season started, if we can put together a couple of good victories soon, it could be a good season but if we drop too many points early on it will be catch up and the players may lose faith in the management.

the lack of wins so far becomes a concern beause of the level of opposition you have faced so far. failure to win this one will only heighten the concern among the support - and rightly so.

puts immense pressure on you to start winning games against the top sides.

No wonder they're not winning games, according to Con they only have 8 players on the field ;)

Did you know that Tottenham have won just one of their last 11 Premier League away games (W1 D5 L5).

Any more comments or predictions?

Reading 0-1 Tottenham

Defoe put Spurs 1-0 ahead on 17 mins after Lennon cut the ball inside following a good run into the area.

Tottenham in complete control of the game after 30 mins.

HT

Reading 0-1 Totteham

Good 1st half from Spurs especially Sigurdsson in midfield.

Could AVB be on for his first win as their manager?

Reading 0-2 Tottenham

Bale ends his barren run with Spurs 2nd of the game.

The Royals had been fighting hard to get back into it but don't seem to have a chance now.
