Tottenham v Reading

Postby Conner99 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 5:51 pm

Tottenham had to come from a goal down to beat Sunderland 2-1 and are now 4th in the table heading into the new year , manager Andre Villas-Boas was happy with how his team has played over the holiday period .." it was extremely good. Apart from the Everton fixture we have had an excellent December and to finish the year with a win like this is very good for us."



Reading had just their second win of the season as they beat West Ham 1-0 , the winning goal coming after just 5 mins , manager Brian McDermott said after the match.. "We had to deal with facing a very physical side and we have kept another clean sheet. I didn't feel they had too many opportunities. Pavel took his chance very well and we've also hit the bar. "A couple of their players could have been sent off and you saw two teams desperate to win out there."

FT

Tottenham 3-1 Reading
0-1 Pogrebnyak 4’
1-1 Dawson 10’
2-1 Adebayor 51’
3-1 Dempsey 79'

Any comments on todays result?

Have Spurs shown that they're not a one man team and can still do well when Bale isn't in the side?

I noticed in a game the other day he went far too defensive when we were ahead, very risky and just invites pressure onto us. I have a feeling it is going to bite us in the ass at some point, I have hated the tactic ever since Jol did it against Chelsea in the FA Cup and they came back to get the replay and then do us at home.

I think AVB is doing one thing smart ,and that is wrapping Dembele in cotton wool by subbing him after the game is done and dusted, if that is what he's doing. You have to protect your best assets ,especially those which can't be replaced, because the season is long.

I would totally agree if he subbed him at 3-1 with 15min left.

But he subbed him at 2-1 and a bit earlier. Game was still alive.
