‘Fighting Spirit’ or unconvincing win?

by Matthew Harris on October 29, 2012

Spurs climbed above Arsenal and Everton and into fourth place in the Premiership yesterday but if you’d read some of the post-match comments on Social Media, you’d have thought we were in Southampton’s position.

Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas praised the team’s fighting spirit,

“The first half was all ours and we played extremely well,” said AVB. “We kept possession and kept control of the ball.

“We knew at half-time that only a third goal and 3-0 would put the game to bed.

“As soon as they scored, the nature of the game changed and we knew we’d be in for a fight. That’s what happened.

“The lads were fantastic to hold onto the lead again, showing the fighting spirit we also showed at Manchester United.”

It wasn’t the best of victories but it sparked a mixed reaction on the club’s Facebook feed. In fairness, most of the comments were positive but others criticised the performance.

Are you in the ‘a win’s a win’ camp or are there problems that may have been highlighted in this game?
