Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premiership Season
for 2013-2014 - Match 27
Some printable comments

Firstly here are one or two stats. Hugo Lloris was voted the Spurs man of the match for the 13th time in 32 starts this season. Very occasionally, he has won that vote for being the least worst Spurs player on the park, but on Sunday, once again he did make one super save to demonstrate his class, and to at least keep Spurs in the game.

With Brad Friedel winning the man of the match vote against Dnipro, our goalkeeper has won the vote for the fourth consecutive game, and for the fifth time in the last six games. Surely that is a scathing judgement upon our outfield players?

Here are just a few (printable) comments made by our voters after a performance judged worse than any other this season barring those massive defeats against Man City and Liverpool:-

"Ade was my MOTM didn't get the service he needs. GOT TO PLAY ERIKSEN. They looked tired after trip to Ukraine, poor dears..."
"This is the game where we decided to throw away any realistic chance we had of keeping pace with Liverpool. Everyone was cr*p."
"A lot were shocking but most of all why was Eriksen left on the bench - he was one player who could have revived the team - Vertonghen looked disgusted with all around him - Why does TS persevere with Bentaleb - he's ok but not so good that he's first choice every game!! Lennon tried very hard in first half but seemed to give up in the second. Adebayor worked hard but had no support until Soldado came on."
"Dawson and Naughton and to some extent Rose, are showing how much they are not top Premiership players."
"I'll be honest, Dawson, Naughton and Rose would struggle to get in even the dross 1990s Spurs teams. They are completely out of their depth. Vertonghen will leave at the end of the season because he doesn't want to have to play with Dawson week-in week-out."
"Mistake to let Holtby go out on loan, where was Eriksen or Defoe. Season over, whose here for the cricket this year ? "

Thanks as always for all votes cast, and heartfelt comments.

P.S - Sandro has now missed 14 consecutive games. His endeavour, application and inspiration is sorely missed.
