Draw at the dumps (ratings & video)

A cold & windy visit to a garbage infested Reebok stadium saw our players constantly challenged, dodging Bolton players along with plastic bags, cups, minced pies… you name it. Not a pretty display of football last night as the squad seemed to be out of sync. What is so tough about the Reebok? We never depart with 3 points (note: Spurs have never won at the Reebok since the start of the Premier League). I think I know the reason why. His name is Kevin Davies. A God to the Bolton faithful. The devil to all others.

Ratings:

Cudicini (6.5) – He could have done better with the second goal, but to be fair, the defenders were horrible

BAE (6.0) – subdued on attack

Bassong (5.5) – not outstanding

Hudd (5.5) – unfair considering he isn’t a true center back

Corluka (6.5) – his clinical header saved us; great run to break away from the defender

Kranjcar (7.0) – good effort from the boy, quality touch… one goal and set up Charlie’s header from the corner

Palacios (6.0) – Neither myself or the Bolton fans were impressed by his dramatic dive; ‘Arry should let him know we don’t want that at Tottenham

Jenas (7.0) – hardest working player on the pitch IMO

Lennon (6.5) – will the real Azza please stand up? Some moments of brilliance but that’s all they were… moments

Keane (3.0) – horrid and should have been subbed earlier; he wasn’t himself

Crouch (7.0) – great effort from the big guy; quality headed assist to Niko for our first goal

A draw at the Reebok is not a bad thing people. Relax. If anything, with the way we played yesterday, we were blessed to walk away with a point. Lucky for us that Man U also drew yesterday against Sunderland (Bent had a beautiful goal), Chelsea face Liverpool tonight, and Man City face Aston Villa away tomorrow. This means that we shouldn’t be so far off from the top performing teams in the league after the final match on Monday. Never thought I would be saying that by October.

COYS!
