Oh dear. It’s all over. Champions League? Based upon last night we would have struggled to get on ‘We Are The Champions’ (RIP Ron Pickering).
Villa Real gave Tottenham a culture shock last night after the run of largely low quality recent MLS games. Guiseppe Rossi hit a hat-trick which of course didn’t help and the Tottenham team as you can see from the substitutions, was subjected to a revolving door policy by Harry Redknapp.
Spurs (4-4-2): Gomes (Button, 46); Hutton (Walker, 46), Dawson (Bassong, 46), Corluka, Naughton (Assou-Ekotto, 46); Lennon (Bale, 46), Huddlestone (Parrett, 78), Jenas (Rose, 19), Kranjcar (Taarabt, 81); Defoe (Giovani, 46), Keane (Crouch, 46)
“I didn’t want this game,” Harry Redknapp said. “Too many have been scheduled. We need some time on the training pitch.”
On an upbeat note, Jermaine Jenas picked up a groin strain.
