The Bale”s on the wing; The Jakes’s on the scoreboard; God’s in his Heaven – All’s right with the world…
First up I want to tackle the obvious charge that this was only Hearts and Hearts weren’t very good. Agreed that was the case. So this gives us an accurate gauge of quite how unspectacular the SPL really is. The Jambos, don’t forget are the widely regarded third best firm up there. Ouch.
Anyway. The Jam Tarts weren’t completely useless and to their credit they not only ran all night and remained determined to mount a comeback. My point being they were hard tackling and in Tottingham’s faces all night long.
Gomes -6 You make me nervous
Walker – 6.32 Lots of positives, more please
Dawson – 7.64 Every inch a captain. That’s what she said
Kaboul – 7.57 Rock solid
A&E -8 Assured and intelligent
Azza –7.58 Few trademark runs, but lots of clever little passes
Livermore – 8 Really decent type, a pleasure to see him in the shirt
Bale – 8.023 The mega bids in January will have many clutching their teddies
VDV – 8.024 Red hot & Dutch
Defoe – 7 The best I’ve seen him in years. More please
Hudd – 6.89 Very, very assured.
