Tottenham v Southampton.

Postby Hams » Fri Mar 21, 2014 6:03 pm

Tottenham lost their last PL game 1-0 at home to rivals Arsenal in the North London derby
It was a much better display from Spurs and it could be said they were unlucky not to at least get a draw.

Southampton won their last match 4-2 at home against Norwich to continue their fine season.
The Saints did suffer a 2nd half scare when Hughton's side pulled back 2 goals but scored late to wrap up the points.

Any predictions?

Southampton are a decent side and I remember the very difficult game they gave us at home last season (when our side looked a lot more convincing than they do now). However, I think we can beat them at WHL. As much as I don't like to admit it this team is more our size in terms of opposition than the last four games. With Liverpool coming up a win here would be very welcome.

Southampton continue to play well despite being in a place where essentially they have nothing to play for except pride (there again nor do we!). Never an easy side to break down, I expect a stern examination in every area of the park.

I'm going for a 2-0 home win here, the season is over for us but the pressure on Tottenham to perform will not diminish. There is no reason for the players to go into this with anything other than a 'must win' attitude.

Spurs comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in injury time and keep their faint CL hopes alive.

The result was never in doubt! Superb fight back from the mighty Spurs and a much needed win to cheer us Tottenham fans up.Bringing on Siggurson seemed to make the difference, a very good sub by Sherwood.A close game, Southampton could have stolen it towards the end but thems the breaks.
I was impressed with Chadli, who is growing into his role. Big powerful
midfielder who can win the ball, hold it up, and make a telling pass. Pretty pleased with the result and second half performance.

some of the funniest defending you'll see all season in this game. absolutely hilarious viewing.

almost as funny was Tiger Tim thinking he'd won the world cup, or at least that's how it looked.

Well ,well well , the FA turn yet another blind eye when they when they wish to.
How Sherwood was allow dot be on the touchline after assaulting Sagna with the football in his last outing i don't know. It was the very definition of violent conduct in my eyes.
Good to see Moussa make a rare appearance in this one even if was for only a half.But i really don't know why Spurs are going to sub him off and play Chadli and Benteleb together ,they are almost identical in ability and very average relatively speaking .

it was obvious nothing was going to happen, as i said in the relevant match thread.

you can draw your own conclusions as to why it was so obvious.

Now then gents, try to be gracious in defeat. Tottenham have only gone and defeated a side brimming with England players on their way to Brazil in the summer! What more do you want?

Bow the knee and admit that Tim Sherwood is king (don't give him Manager of the Month award though, that rarely seems to work out).
