At times yesterday, I thought Spurs played like they were carrying out a routine
training session. Eriksson in particular looked particularly composed ,and was
expressly granted the freedom of White Hart Lane by a seriously lacklustre Norwich.
Eriksson is a quality player ,but affording him too much respect by allowing him the
opportunity to pop the ball about in neat little triangles of play will leave any team
playing catch up for the rest of the match.
I said prior to this game that Norwich have a Jekyll and Hyde persona ,and very really
do they achieve a balance between the two,and yesterday Norwich were abysmal.
I was particularly impressed with Danny Rose though ,and Sigurdsson looked very
adept at finding space in the box ....that lad might make a decent striker.
Good win for Spurs ,but their complete domination of the game as a contest should
of yielded far more a convincing scoreline.
The less said concerning Norwich the better though ,totally bereft of an idea and
conceded possession on far too many occasions.
I would hesitate to even begin describing just what the purpose of their midfield
was yesterday,because quite frankly I've seen colanders with less holes.
