An awful, gutless display was given by Spurs on Saturday, in the biggest of games, leaving all fans both bewildered and angry. The players didn’t seem up for the game, there was no fighting spirit, and whilst all three goals conceded were from dodgy refereeing decisions, it did not hide the fact that this was the worse performance for a very long time. They were there for the taking and Spurs choked.

There needs to be an inquest at the club because it was simply unacceptable, especially against our main rivals – the one game you want the team to give their all. The blame for a lack of spirit goes equally to the players and the management who are supposed to motivate them, but the negative tactics and complete lack of attacking ideas are down to Jol and Houghton and someone, Levy or Comolli, needs to formally tell them that it was not good enough.

They have two home games this week in which to bounce back, and only two wins will be acceptable after Saturday’s appalling “effort”.

Yours disgusted, The Waddler.
