Tottenham fans gave their verdict on Spurs display as a team and individually in the victory over West Ham in the opening game of the season. Overall, the verdict was positive with the season getting off to a winning start with Eric Dier’s very late goal at the home of their London rivals.
Tottenham Fans Have Their Say!
On Eric Dier and that GOAL!
Jay Bee (@Baumee) made Eric Dier the ‘Man of the Match’ in this tweet,
Dier Was my man of the match before he scored goal was brilliantly taken for a defender

David (@davidSpurs) was impressed with Eric Dier in his first game for Tottenham and with the young defender’s composure when scoring. He tweeted,
That will give Dier plenty of confidence as if he needs it the way he took that goal. #coys

Lionel Curie (@currybags) was also impressed with Dier’s finish but also the part played by Harry Kane in the goal. He tweeted,
Just a ridiculously calm finish for a kid on his debut about 100 yards from home….well done Eric Dier not forgetting Harry's part in goal

On Hugo Lloris and that SAVE!
Stephen Mullan (@Stevomullan) tweeted on the importance of Hugo Lloris save in the 87th minute.
Eric Dier might have got all the plaudits, but Hugo was immense! that save at the end was vital. #HugoBoss

On Mauricio Pochettino and Players’ Attitude
Zac Johnson (@daddtzeeTHFC) tweeted his appreciation of the attitude of the Tottenham players and their desire to keep going right to the final whistle.
Pleased with the never give up attitude today. It only takes a second to score a goal so why not do your all for the whole 90 mins. #COYS

SpursDreamer (@SpursDreamer) was impressed with Mauricio Pochettino tactically.
Tactically very good from Pochettino. If you had any doubts about where Soldado stands, you know now! Bentaleb & Capoue first choice #Spurs

Corbit (@Corbit_THFC) is realistic in his assessment of Tottenham’s win at Upton Park in his tweet.
Still can't believe we won that game… But speaking rationally we got lucky. We had a poor game and players need more time with the system.

On Townsend, Lennon and Holtby
Ryan Newport (@RYANNEWPORT) was pleased with the result and gave his assessment of some of the players, although I can’t agree with his view on Lewis Holtby. He tweeted,
Great result for the mighty Spurs!! Dier was quality, thought Townsend did more in 25 mins than Lennon & Lamela did all game! Holtby awful
— Ryan Newport (@RYANNEWPORT) August 16, 2014
Sean Hunt (@Totttingham_Sean) tweeted his assessment of Townsend, Lennon and Holtby. I would tend to agree with his assessment of Holtby.
Townsend showed again when coming on that he's better than Lennon. Also need to find a place for Holtby as he deserves to be starting #thfc
