Updates from the club’s social networking sites highlighted the fact that Spurs had 31 shots during yesterday’s defeat to Newcastle but no goals means we’ve now drawn a blank for the second game running. Overall, it’s nine goals from ten league matches and even goal shy Stoke have overtaken us.

Of course, Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul had a big part to play in yesterday’s shut out – a fact that wasn’t lost on head coach Andre Villas-Boas.

“Tim Krul made a difference, managed to keep Newcastle alive and take the win,” Andre said.

“They were outstanding situations and normally one goes into the back of the net and the lift you get from scoring is immense. It wasn’t to be. Krul made one save after another, we hit the bar. It wasn’t to be our day.”

AVB also pointed to a poor first period and the defensive lapses that led to the decisive goal.

“I think we were unlucky, but we didn’t have a good first half,” he added.

“We gave Newcastle that advantage and paid the price.

“I’m particularly happy with how we reacted in the second half and we were very unlucky not to score at least one goal.”

Results elsewhere went against us meaning that we have now dropped from fourth to seventh. After the international break it’s Manchester City away and despite their own issues at the back, where will the goals come from at the Etihad?
