A point away at White Hart Lane nowadays isn't a bad result to come away with. In fairness it was no less than they deserved, really goes to show how much Tottenham have come along as a club. We lacked the final ball on the counter and as such continued to squander possession. If you're going out to counter-attack you've got to be precise and efficient, we lacked precision. De Gea was fantastic and his efforts alone deserved a clean sheet. Ferdinand was the best I've seen him in a while also.

I think you can say we done a United on you. Fair result I think, we never really cut you open but deserved to score. Shame that ex gooner had to score but overall can't complain. Respect for the acknowledgement of how we have moved on, all down to AVB. Proper manager! Good second half of football. Good luck for the rest of the season.

I hope so to! No excuse with the players we have really, I'm just hoping with AVB we can avoid a repeat of the 2nd season collapse we usually suffer from. I'm sure I've said it before as a "deluded" spurs fan but I honestly feel we look a lot more like a team this season. Been building for a while now and I think having a proper manager in AVB is hopefully the final piece of the jigsaw. Look forward to hopefully battling it out with you over the next few seasons if we can keep our players, especially as games between us are usually decent affairs. Look at winners and learn to become winners, your the model we have to look at so no shame in taking a leaf out of your book. See you next season for more of the same!

Wouldn't say your a deluded spurs fan at all north upper, i've experience plenty of them, heck we've been bombarded with vitriol from some of them and you're certainly not one. Despite your second half of the season collapse last season you still grasped 4th which isn't a bad collapse though granted you should've comfortably finished 3rd. Personally think your collapse was more to do with Redknapp taking his eye off the ball, can't stand the man, he only thinks of himself first and foremost and has a tendency to chat the brown stuff all on top of being an egomaniac. I'd say you're a world class striker and sufficient cover for key players away from challenging us and city. You're a team, you're developing a never-say-die attitude, you're players all bust a gut for the club and work from the first minute until the last there's clearly the foundations for a great team there.

Also the foundations are evident through you being one of two clubs (Everton the other) who have dispelled the myth that you can't break into the tip four without spending lorry loads. Evidently you can break into the top four with good management, shrewd business in the market and patience all whilst turning over a profit.

I never wanted Redknapp at the club, I distinctly remember getting the call confirming he was appointed and the feeling of utter dejection and disgust. The guy is a cancer. As you say completely self absorbed, referred the the fans as "them" and was all in it for himself. I am just glad Levy had the balls to follow through and get rid of him after the whole court case / England job farce. It's just a shame he ****ed our season in the process! Also glad to see AVB getting the chance to show what he can do, seems he is at the right club at the right time and will hopefully give us a decent stint at Spurs. All we need to do now is prise Levy's fingers from his wallet and buy a striker and a creative midfielder! That's the trouble with us, as soon as we get close to doing something we pfaf around trying to save a couple of quid on a player that will most probably make us millions in CL qualification! Some call it financial prudence, others call it being short sighted. I'm still not quite sure which view I take. If I really thought the Fair play rules would help I would be all for it but I fear they wont and we could miss the boat. Oh the life of a Spurs fan...
