Firing Blanks

What can you say about Saturday? Spurs should have scored but didn’t, Watford did score but it was disallowed. They also missed a sitter and cleared a Robbie Keane effort off the line with a very fluky back heel. Therefore, maybe a draw was a fair reflection of the game.

The disappointing thing is that Spurs are still to score an away league goal themselves this season and yet to register an away win. The positive is that its yet another clean sheet, albeit rather more fortuitously earned than others this season, and it’s a point earned away, which is the standard expectation for an away team.

That’s about it really, not great, not all that bad either. It’s how we do on Thursday that will show whether this team have some mettle, and then onto Chelsea on Sunday where we will no doubt contrive to lose as usual. Let’s hope it’s not Rob Styles refereeing this year.

The Waddler.
