Match Reports
Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2003-2004 - Match 24

Sat. 07.02.04 - Sun 08.02.04

A. Villa 2 Leeds 0

Leeds suffered their 6th successive league defeat, thanks to a penalty from Angel (his 17th goal of the season), dubiously awarded from a distance by Uriah Rennie. Ronny Johnnsen's header from a free kick settled the game, and Villa are now 8th in the table.It's 2 months since Leeds last league win, but in two days' time they entertain Wolves, and must feel that three points are essential before they face the rigours of a trip to Old Trafford, then Liverpool at home.

Bolton 2 Liverpool 2

Bolton are looking secure in the top half now.. They took the lead through youngster Nicky Hunt, scoring his first senior goal with a well placed shit just inside the post. Hyppia equalised for the Reds, before Djorkaeff restored the lead. Steven Gerrard scored for the first time in open play this season, to make sure the points were shared. Michael Owen is making the headlines for the wrong reasons again, having failed to score in three months.

Everton 3 Man Utd 4

Everton staged a great second half comeback, having gone three goals down to 2 goal from Saha and one from Van Nistelrooy. The Dutchman settled it with a late winner and scored his 100th and 101st goals for United, being only second fastest to the ton to Denis Law. Van Nistelrooy has never scored for United from outside the penalty area.

M'brough 0 Blackburn 1

A much-needed win for Blackburn was achieved thanks to a debut goal from Jonathan Stead, plucked from obscurity at Huddersfield by Graeme Souness for 1.2 million.

Newcastle 3 Leicester 1

This was always comfortable for the Toon, but Les Ferdinand did get a late consolation on his old hunting ground. Newcastle took 4th place above Charlton as a result of this win.

S'hampton 0 Fulham 0

Van der Sar was a hero for Fulham with 5 notable saves in this stalemate. The home fans reserved most of their bile for Rupert Lowe to let him know what they thought of the rumours of a possible return for Glenn Hoddle. Saints' fans hate Hoddle, Spurs, and their fans almost as much as they do those from Pompey!

Spurs 4 Portsmouth 3

Wolves 1 Arsenal 3

Arsenal remain two points clear of Manchester United at the top, and achieved a new Premiership record with their run of 24 games unbeaten since the start of the season. Bergkamp, Henry and Toure scored their goals, but there was some excitement for home fans when Ganea equalised Bergkamp's goal mid-way through the first half.

Man City 0 B'mingham 0

Despite their mid-week heroics, City have now gone 14 Premiership games since a win, and remain just 4 points above safety. Birmingham defended stoutly, and Taylor made a magnificent double save in the second half.

Chelsea 1 Charlton 0

Scott Parker was not permitted to play for Chelsea in this game, as part of the agreed terms in his recent transfer from the visitors. How Chelsea could have done with him, as for various reasons they were missing Veron, Cole, and Geremi in the middle, with Terry suspended. Despite having Hasselbaink and Mutu up front, Chelsea did not look too threatening until Gudjohnnsen replaced Hasselbaink late on. Jimmy Floyd did "win" a penalty though, when he backed into Mark Fish, with both players going over. The penalty was converted with Kiely going the wrong way. Mutu hasn't scored a home Premiership goal since the Spurs game in September, but he did have two good chances in the last 10 minutes, one of which hit the woodwork, the other being saved by Kiely at close range, without knowing too much about it.
