11 years in the making

"Yes, I'm lookin' at you punk!"

Yes. 11 long years. 11 long years to take our first league win from the NLD. But we took it in epic fashion. Another epic goal in another epic NLD. Personal business. Done and executed.

Boos erupted at the Lane every time a certain Judas even considered touching the ball. Scratch that. If he even looked at the ball, the fans were ready to belt out their disgust.

The joyous occasion was followed by a sleepless night tossing and turning in excitement. Honestly speaking, the happiness doesn’t stem from simply beating Arsenal. It’s how it was done. As I mentioned above, another epic goal in the NLD for Spurs. 19 year old Danny Rose, on his debut as a starter in the Premier League, nailed a 29 yarder majestically which was clocked traveling at 69 miles per hour! Thunderous stuff from the youngster!

Everyone seemed to be in form. Gomes put in a MOTM performance saving the unthinkable. Granted they did score one, but in my head it was irrelevant… well sort of, after the match at least. Bale, Bale, Bale scored his second in the NLD. A great way to cap off all the hard work and effort he has put in since being called into the first squad. The Welshman and BAE controlled the left flank with ease – besides the assist for Arse’s goal – and formed a great partnership on attack. Tasty stuff.

Modric and Hudd were focused on the defencive side of things. The “little one” stuck his body in all kinds of jams and came out successful many times. The only unfortunate part to his role in the central midfield is that he doesn’t create as many opportunities in comparison to the left. With time and experience, he will improve in this position.

Kaboul was solid filling in for Charlie, timing his slide tackles perfectly but picking up a yellow card along the way. Harsh decision from the referee, but overall, I can finally applaud the officials as they put in a consistent performance. Great timing might I add.

Dawson and King are a fantastic pairing. It still baffles me that King can come in after such a long time into such a heated fixture, and play the way he does. He even managed to go forward numerous times helping in the distribution of play. Breathtaking you are your majesty! Hope he will be fit for the Chelsea match.

One last player evaluation before wrapping this post up… Bentley. He solidified the squad instantly. He aided the defence at crucial moments, while adding all the width on attack. An attribute I truly appreciate.

Mr. Redknapp, some more of this fine football when our other neighbors visit the Lane on Saturday. Please.

    YEEEESSSS!!!!! I have been watching from a far in the US for a while. The economy forced me to drop Fox Soccer Channel but I have been following the Spurs. Yesterday’s game was on ESPN and I was absolutely beside myself with the performance. The shot from Rose let you know it was going to be a special day. Bentley, King, Kaboul, Bale, Modric, everyone was just solid.

    Robin Van Persie put a scare into everyone but Gomes made sure it was in vain. What a great victory! This will be made even more special if the Spurs can turn this momentum into a victory over Chelsea on Saturday. On to fourth! COYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    TJ: Glad you got to watch the magic unfold! Spurs were brilliant that night.

    Bash: Love it love it love it love it; it was a lovely lovely day

    Mr. B: You’re so right, because in my mind, the pain of losing to Pompey in the Cup has been erased! Oh the sight of the Arse sulking off the WHL pitch!
