Good morning fight fans and welcome to the FA cup afterparty.
Newport came, saw, and did their conkers but in the final analysis Spurs and the Wembley yardage was just too much for them. Again, it befits to commend the Exiles for giving it a proper go under beyond challenging circumstances.
To call Sissoko’s goal cruel is an understatement. Thanks too to Spurs for not only getting the job done with a jumble sale assortment of a starting XI but for providing just the right level of comedy to hold our attention.
Anyone feverishly preparing their ‘So now do you admit you were wrong?!’ speech for when we win the FA cup this summer may wish to question just how seriously a football team takes being a football team with Moussa Sissoko as its most played player and Fernando Llorente as its second striker.
I’ve held back on beating the former Swansman up, but last night was neat opportunity for him to pay a little room and board off against mob halfway down League Two. But he was abysmal.
Sissoko was textbook Sissoko and his ‘goal’ was straight out of the Darren Bent Bumper Book Of Belters.
Spurs routinely suffer when the best XI is tinkered with and last night was no exception. Player ratings and stuff to follow.
