Sautéed Seagulls À La Spurs

By The Boy -

‘I don’t mind a bit of rain, but this is really coming down’


It would be churlish to say that the two staggeringly good goals wallpapered over some familiar cracks, however there is some truth to that.

This game came at the right time and had Spurs been faced with (dare I say it softly) another Liverpool, the consequences may have been heartbreaking.

What edged Tottenham out of their coma at the Amex was that extra element of fight and determination, which are directly reflected in the post match data.

Spurs created 13 chances courtesy of Rose, Kane, Tripps and Eriksen.

Brighton were disposed of the ball on 12 occasions, twice as many times as us.

Kane again won all 3 of his takes ons.

This stuff is important.


Brighton it has to be said, were a bit flat.

One might almost say they had appeared to mimic some of our recent dullness.

Glenn Murray their star man striker, lost the ball more times than anyone else on the pitch.

Their eventual goalscorer Knockaert had been watching videos of our set piece delivery; young Anthony made 11 crosses and 9 of them were duds.


A Lily-white job well done.

Question is, will morale be sufficiently boosted to right the wrongs of our previous encounter against Watford?

Spurs vs Watford in the Carabao Cup is on Wednesday night, kick off 2000hrs.
