Fortunately our back four played their ‘A’ game last night and there was no repeat of our recent performances at Wolves and Blackpool. Vedran Corluka was a welcome sight in the line up and William Gallas, who made that vital goal line clearance, showed just what it all means to him with his celebrations at the final whistle.
Just in front of them, a young Brazilian is really starting to make his mark at White Hart Lane. Sandro has made great strides in the last few weeks and his contribution was hailed by his manager last night.
“I thought Sandro was immense in midfield,” Harry Redknapp said after the game.
“He’s powerful, strong, aggressive. He’s got the ability to run and work for 90 minutes and I felt he turned in a great performance for us.
“He’s in the Brazilian squad and a young player with a big future.”
Still only 21, he plays at times like a veteran. The manager has at times alternated him with Palacios, but after this performance, maybe he’ll be one of the first names on the team sheet.
