After a week off, and nothing much happening, we’ll review the last two weeks
That late, late equaliser was sweet for all of us, and Dempsey had scored the all important goals to take 4 points from United. He had missed a sitter early in the game, but didn’t let his head drop. With four in four games this year, he’s our biggest goal threat. Unfortunately, there isn’t that much competition at the moment.
Tore Evra apart, again, the only annoying thing is that after the Frenchman picked up a yellow card we didn’t target him more often. It’s a Tottenham trait of old, and given how Lennon will either draw fouls or blitz past a defender with or without a yellow to their name, we need to be a bit smarter.
Hugo Lloris and his defence
Clean sheet against QPR, not really troubled against Utd save the goal, he and the rest of the defence is looking the part.
Got lucky with the ‘incident’ but overall didn’t look too troubled against the league’s top scorer. I still feel there is a little more to come from Caulker, a little sharper with his concentration and a touch more commanding when dealing with certain situations, but I think that’s more a case of him not knowing how good he is.
Opportunity knocks just at the right time for Scotty, and he didn’t do anything wrong on Sunday.
Nice to see him back.
Real shame to lose the beast, he was playing so well, but at least it means his good form won’t alert any potential suitors, for now.
If Only Julio Cesar hadn’t touched his shot onto the post, JD might have regained that ‘vitality’ that makes him such a dangerous striker. News on an injury isn’t good for him or us.
Pretty dire against QPR, and given their relative work ethics Dempsey has to be picked ahead of him at the moment. Also got mugged in South Africa, along with the rest of the Togo squad, and they lost their opening Cup of Nations game.
