Beating a side like Fulham – courtesy of an own goal – just about sums this squad up.
Away from the utterly delusional chitter-chatter about Bale being back, Tottenham looked impoverished against even the most meagre of Premier League opponents this evening. Despite lots of huffing and puffing, Scotty Parker sadly lacks a real striker. Had they had one or maybe two, we’d have been sunk.
Who knows how José Mourinho truly feels this evening. I’m sure his responses will be diplomatic. The truth is that the poor man is quite possibly facing the biggest PR task of his career. If this is Spurs with just one player out of the Squad, then we are officially in trouble.
Defensively Spurs look vulnerable, and our midfield was porous. I genuinely fear for this season. Being in a final is a lifetime way from winning one. Being in the last 16 of the Europa is another lifetime way from winning that tournament.
So for all the wise guys that bemoaned me for not getting aboard the Chuckle Bus, here’s you’re proof.
