On MOTD 2 Mark Lawrenson said,
Hugo Lloris was Tottenham’s best player today. The other ten were SH…AMEFUL.
The presenter looked momentarily shocked, he thought Lawrenson was going to say they were sh*t.
Hope For SunderlandSunderland lost one of their games in hand to West Ham on Monday night which makes it 1 point in March from 5 league games since the League Cup defeat. As they struggle to get away from the relegation zone they must fear that the jinx of the League Cup Final is going to strike again.
There is a silver lining to every cloud, including Gus Poyet’s. Sunderland get to play us next. It shows what Spurs fans think of the team at the moment. Tickets for this Monday night televised game still have not sold out with 5 days to go.
Sunderland, West Bromwich Albion, Fulham, Aston Villa… they must all be rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of playing us, seeing it as the game that gives them the best chance of a “surprise” 3 points in their bid for survival.
Speaking after his team’s home defeat by West Ham, Poyet said in his post match interview with BBC Sport,
We are not going to give up, we have shown tonight that we will not give up. If I see a team out there not trying and not putting effort in I will leave straight away, I did not see that and we will continue fighting.
Fold into the mix that we will also be playing Stoke City going for their highest Premier League position ever and West Ham United who will be aiming to get a hat-trick of wins over us this season, we are looking at total meltdown.
