Tottenham’s defeat at home to Wigan on Saturday would have been hard enough to bear had the team turned in a decent enough performance but in reality, we created next to nothing and were well beaten by Roberto Martinez’ men.
After the match, Andre Villas-Boas gave his verdict,
“It was extremely disappointing for everybody,” said AVB. “We just weren’t ourselves.
“We couldn’t find our rhythm and couldn’t find our passing. We had a bad day at the office.
“It was difficult for us from the beginning to keep the ball, to make any kind of clear opportunity and we made mistakes. We have to improve for the next game.”
Aside from a Steven Caulker header which was cleared off the line, Tottenham resorted to tame, long range efforts and we can only hope that it was indeed just a ‘bad day at the office’.
A big improvement will obviously be needed ahead of the Manchester City match on Sunday but before that it’s the visit of Maribor on Thursday for the next instalment of the Europa League.
