Our 2-1 home win over QPR was a game of two halves in every sense after Spurs went in 1-0 down on 45 minutes. At that stage, the visitors had enjoyed six shots on target while Tottenham failed to trouble Julio Cesar and signs for the second period weren’t good.
A quick switch to 4-4-2 and it was an entirely different game in the second half but Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas chose to give all the credit to the players after our first home win of the season.
“We had to do something to look sharper and more attacking, we didn’t create a lot in the first half and we felt going with two strikers was the best for us at that period,” AVB said.
“The players really wanted to win this game for our fans, it is more that will than the tactical change that won the game.”
An own goal from former alleged Spurs target Alejandro Faurlin and a Jermain Defoe strike sealed the win and lifted us into the top half of the table. After our trip to Carlisle in the week, it’s Manchester United away in the ESPN game next Saturday.
So the first home win is in the bank but would you credit AVB or suggest that we should have started the game with 4-4-2?
