The FA Cup dream is over for another year as our last appearance in the final back in 1991 starts to become a distant memory for some of us. Spurs were described as ‘toothless’ after the 2-1 defeat away to Leeds but head coach Andre Villas-Boas refused to blame the lack of striking options at the club.

“We are happy with the options we have. We are comfortable with the situation and it is a risk we were willing to take. We did not lose because we missed chances another striker may have taken,” AVB said.

“We just could not create enough clear-cut chances.”

Andre also chose to give credit to Leeds for closing us down through the game.

“They got into our faces and made it difficult for us, so credit for them for being so competitive,” he added.

“We didn’t have a lot of space, maybe more in the first half and less in the second because they gained inspiration from going 2-0 up.”

In time honoured fashion, we now get to concentrate on the league and there is little time to dwell on the Leeds defeat as Norwich await at Carrow Road this Wednesday.

  1. well he’s talking rubbish. Clearly we need a new striker. If Defoe has a dodgy pelvis then we’re gonna slide down the league pretty fast, the performancevs leeds was crap, we had no presence up front cos Dempsey ain’t a CF.
    Hooper or Rhodes for me

  2. And to think Watford put six past them at Elland Road quite recently ….

    Joking aside, Spurs definitely don’t need the distraction and this defeat may well work in their favour.

    See you on the up!

  3. Spure need another striker—– L. Damiao or p.aubameyung BETTER FIT IN ATTAK With 4 OTHER TARGET— MOUNTINHO , HOLTBY , BENDER , WILLIAN—–OUT—GOMES ROSE JENAS BENTLAY SIGURDSSON AND LIVERMOER

  4. Vic Road

    Just to think that we played with 10 men from the 30th minute onwards and used all of our subs and got Austin stretchered off near the beginning of the second half eh? Still don’t let the facts get in the way of how you managed to put 6 past a team with 9 men.
