The phrase ‘one of those night’s has appeared once again on the club website and it’s been used a fair bit in connection with Tottenham’s recent games. After the loss against Everton, Harry said that he couldn’t understand it and against Stoke, we dominated possession once again.
Last season, Spurs were enjoying a great run up until the end of December and the reason for falling away was quite obvious. In the first half of the campaign, Tottenham relied heavily on goals from Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart and as such, most of us didn’t notice that our main forwards weren’t really contributing.
However, as Bale and VDV started to struggle with injury, nobody stepped forward to score their goals for them and the campaign fell away.
This time round, the same two players have played their part again but there has been much more support in the scoring stakes throughout the rest of the side.
So what has happened over the last four games? Is our central defence in severe need of an overhaul? Can any blame be placed on the attack once again or is this just a blip? If so, what does Harry need to do to prevent our most promising season for years from ending in disappointment?
