Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2009-2010 - Match 1
A new feature on Spurs Odyssey this season will be the opportunity for readers to offer their grades for the players after each competitive first team game. A total of 175 readers offered their marks out of 10 for the 14 players who made an appearance against Liverpool, and YOUR man of the match was Wilson Palacios with an overall grade of 8.1. See the revised "Spursometer" here. I intend to use this wider based assessment of the team and individuals over the course of the season, rather than my individual grades. (I made Bassong my man of the match)

With thanks to my good friend Declan Mulcahy for his contributions, here are a few statistics pertinent to Spurs win over Liverpool:-

First time Spurs have won their opening league game of the season for four years, August 13, 2005, 2-0 away to Portsmouth.

First time Spurs have won their opening league game of the season for nine years, when it was at White Hart Lane, 3-1 at home to Ipswich Town August 19, 2000.

First time a player making his league debut has scored for Spurs since Gilberto against West Ham United on March 9, 2008.

First time two players have scored their first league goal for the club in the same game since September 1, 2007 when Younes Kaboul and Gareth Bale both scored against Fulham in a 3-3 draw at Craven Cottage.

First time two players have scored their first league goal for the club in the same game, when one was making his debut, since August 17, 1985, twenty four years ago, when both Paul Allen and Chris Waddle both scored on their league debuts.

First time Liverpool have been beaten in the league for two consecutive seasons at White Hart Lane since 2001-02.

First time Liverpool have lost the first league game of the season since August 2003 (against Chelsea).
