Spurs setting worrying trend


Hopefully Spurs’ inability to hold narrow leads is a curable affliction, as Tottenham has surrendered two late goals in successive weeks resulting in four dropped points.

Mousa Dembele, in his debut Spurs performance, scored his first goal with the club from a sweeping – and lethal – 68th minute left footed shot after being introduced as a half-time substitute.

Brad Friedel played a vital role in salvaging a 1-1 draw for his North London club, even though Hugo Lloris, Spurs new signing, is touted to nab the American’s spot in goal. He displays superb strength, agility and shot-stopping ability a keeper in his mid-20’s let alone a 41-year-old.

Frailties in defence shone through and, in the 85th minute, Norwich City’s Robert Snodgrass stuck the dagger in White Hart Lane hearts by snatching home a left-footed half volley.

Two points from six at home is not the start Andre Villas-Boas envisioned, but the Portuguese manager, at the moment, has time on his side.

Once the new arrivals gel with the squad and defensive leaks are sealed watch for Spurs to go on a tear akin to last season’s seven-match run.
