One Nice Rush for Success

Tottenham’s 1-0 Wembley win over Inter earned in the waning moments of the game was an even back-and-forth affair.

Spurs’ midfielder Sissoko was the difference maker. Normally the whipping boy for Spurs whenever he plays, had a fantastic run towards the box before sliding a beautiful pass across to Dele Alli to the have the conclusion executed by Christian Eriksen.

Both these teams are now tied. But The Spurs path to the next round is still uphill. They have to go a grab the win at Camp Nou, while Inter faces an already Euro-eliminated (with a nontheless valiant effort against Barça) Eindhoven.

Spurs Jiggle the Table

When you miss in one end what was supposed to get chalked up, it often comes right back to bite you in the rear end.

Tottenham took the lead, deservedly so, on this notable header.

Then a foul in the box on Hazard (video) gets overlooked by referee. And, alas, the inevitable pay-the-price goal, really slanted the table of play. This says something about Chelsea’s mental resilience. Instead of going into the half possibly at 1-1, the Blues had to come out down by 2, and their unbeaten streak hanging by a thread.

And the obvious happens. The Spurs bury the game 15 minutes into the second half. An 85th minute marker is barely balm on the sore. Sarri is going to work on the mental side now, while Tottenham will justifiably walk about with their head held up high.

New Spotlight Direction for Tottenham

Defender Foyth scored winner against Crystal Palace; Pochettino is all praises over him.

Four consecutive calendar wins. The Spurs are 3 points behind Liverpool, natuarlly awaiting the result of Manchester Derby.

More good news: White Hart Lane and its construction saga is now mitigated as the residency at Wembley has been extended for the club. Even for the whole season (which says a lot about the reality of the construction project)!

Must Solve? Really?

When a stadium is in the books, padding and prudence are the norm. The Tottenham handling of this affair has been suspicious from the start and is now coming back to bite, them. The author of this piece talks about solving the problems now… Sorry mate, too late. This black cloud will linger on for a very long time.

The best the players and managers can do is to embrace the fact that the don’t and won’t have a stadium. The road gang!
