Tottenham v Swansea

Postby Conner99 » Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:54 pm

Tottenham slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Goodison Park as Everton scored two goals in the last few minutres to take all 3 pts , it left manager Andre Vilas-Boas to comment after the match .."It was a disappointing result bearing in mind we were leading taking the game into the last minute".



Swansea lost a 7 goal thriller to Norwich ...it finished 4-3 to the Canaries and although they lost it was a good comeback after going in at half time 3-0 down ..manager Michael Laudrup , "in the first half we conceded three goals and it was not a very good performance. But the first half was as bad as the second was good. I think the players bounced back great".

Should win this one but will need to control Michu.

2-0 Spurs

Will Bale be back for this one?

If Tottenham are at their best they should be able to beat Swansea.

I wonder why AVB has become obsessed recently about changing Spurs defence in the last 10 mins of games?

Tottenham 2-0 Swansea

Bale won't be back, good news is Ekotto and Parker are back in training and might make it onto the bench for this one.

Did you know that Spurs have won 12 and lost none of their 14 league meetings at home against Swansea.

Any more comments or predictions?

Very tricky tie for the Lily Whites this one. Apparently AVB has been working with the players all week long about closing out a game afrer the Everton result. I posted elsewhere that AVB would prove his credentials as a serious manager if Spurs beat Everton - they didn't but I still think this man is worth his position. He quite clearly cares about winning and taking Spurs on to the next level. I feel I can trust him to steer my club in the right direction. Whenever I hear him interviewed he makes intelligent noises, unlike some of the managers and football pundits on TV. I expect a nail biting encounter, Spurs 2 Swansea 1.COYS!

Being brutally honest, I expect us to get the 3 points at home against inferior opposition who have had a midweek fixture. Whether it pans out that way remains to be seen.

Swansea deserve massive respect and i really hope that they win the League Cup. They play a nice, intelligent style of football and will cause us problems if we're not on our game.

If we're winning 3-0 after 80 minutes, we might just hang on for a 3-2 victory. Its been that kind of season.

Bale is still out with his hamstring injury but the good news for Spurs is that Parker is back and makes the bench.

Hmmm, Swansea are annoyingly good at defending, but I expect Spurs to break through in the second half.

FT

Tottenham 1-0 Swansea
1-0 Vertonghen 75’

Any comments on todays result?

Why did it take so long for Spurs to break down Swansea's defence?

Were the Welsh side right to be so angry at the end as it didn't look like Michu was even fouled!

They were angry that we didnt put the ball out for Michu, but that is the referee's call to make.

A hard fought and deserved win. I'm still not convinced by our ability to close matches out - we dont commit to a second goal enough and therefore invite pressure. But win we did and that puts us back up to 4th place.

We did miss the searing penetration of Bale but hopefully he should be back soon.

COYS!
