Spurs continued their round of pre-season friendlies with a 1-1 draw against Swindon Town last night and despite the largely irrelevant outcome, the result sparked a mixed reaction on Social Media.
Tottenham fielded two very different XI’s in each half with a mixture of youth and experience but the goal in the first period came from a familiar source with Gareth Bale slotting home after picking up Gylfi Sigurdsson’s through ball.
Swindon equalised with a deflected shot on 79 minutes and after the game, Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas said that he was satisfied with the overall performance.
“We had some good chances and the result could have been different, but overall we had good, positive moments to take from the game,” said AVB.
“Overall, it was a good first show from everyone and congratulations to Swindon, they played well.”
Andre also intimated that the game had more to do with training and fitness although he did acknowledge that there were things to work on.
“We haven’t stopped training and that’s a good thing for our physical stamina during these games,” he added.
“We’ll continue to use 45-45 minutes to get everyone to a level that’s good for resistance, stamina and endurance.”
Pre-season now moves on to a Friday night game with Colchester but are you disappointed with the result or is it just an irrelevance ahead of the new campaign?
