Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premier League Season
for 2017-2018 - Matchday 10

Spurs fans strangely quiet

For such a high profile game, televised at home and abroad, I have to say there has been a strangely quiet response to the post-match survey this week. I would normally expect twice the number of responses after such a game.

One debate that was held at and after the game was whether Dele Alli "missed a sitter", or whether he did ever so well to reach Eriksen's ball, just being a shade unlucky not to get the right touch to beat De Gea. I personally sit in the latter camp. The action happened right in front of me, and I was not cursing Dele, but of course I was wishing he could have scored. There are those who deride Alli this season, quoting a lack of form, but I have to say I am mystified as to how he scored lower in the post-match survey than did Son, who surely did not have as much influence upon the game. I will continue to admire and defend Dele Alli.

One reason for a degree of withdrawal by Spurs fans is perhaps the disappointment of losing two consecutive games. One to a local rival, and in a Cup game in a competition where we have once again spurned the chance of glory. The other against a fellow rival for Premier League glory, although it is already looking like Manchester City are unstoppable. It is early days yet. Spurs have lost two consecutive games for the first time since November last year. It's three and a half years since we lost three successive games. Let's hope we don't see that happen tomorrow against Real Madrid.

The mood of the fans is a natural deflation after the highs of Real Madrid away and Liverpool at home.

You can see the spursometer in full, but I can tell you that Toby Alderweireld got the highest marks and is therefore our Spurs man of the match. However it was a less than perfect day for all of us, and Toby has to take his share of the blame for the United goal. Let's hope the spirit of "onwards and upwards" engulfs us tomorrow!
