Tottenham have been cursed with some clumsy defending in recent weeks and it was widely accepted that most referees would have sent Alan Hutton off at Wolves on Sunday.

Unfortunately for us, opposing players aren’t quite so profligate from the penalty spot as we are and Kevin Doyle equalised just before the break.

Even Harry Redknapp admitted that Hutton was lucky to stay on the field, although he didn’t get a clear view of the incident.

“There were bodies 70 yards away from me in the box and the ref has suddenly given the penalty. I didn’t have a clue why he had give it because we couldn’t see from the dug-out.

“I haven’t looked at the video. But, if he pulled his arm, it must be a clear goalscoring opportunity. He is very lucky not to get sent off then.”

At 2-2 and going down to ten men we would undoubtedly have played the second half in a different fashion and with resources so slim at the back, Hutton is lucky not to be facing a further suspension.



  1. Hutton was lucky to stay on the field, more to the point , thought he lacked a bit of effort and looked to me like a six year old who had his toys taken away, anyone else get that feeling? Do not know if theres any truth in the row between him and Harry but if he is going to play like that get rid of him, Hutton is a player who I thought was shitte when we got him, started to impress around christmas time and was making a believer out of me, don’t think he is the answer if we can get a few bob for him, sell him and get Kyle Walker back from Villa, cant be as inconsistent and could well act like a proffessional
