Tottenham had been suffering (as much as club that sit fourth can) from a bit of a goal drought. Perhaps the answer was under old man Redknapp’s nose all along.
Spartak were rumoured to have to drop Roman now and again to gee him up. And if Harry has taken this as a model to get the best out of the out of favour frontman, then so far, it’s working a treat.
The long balls to Crouch are not what push and run fans ordered. Defoe whilst lethal is more frequently a bit selfish if the truth be told. But the Russian Roman showed the right attitude combined with a both a delicate and ruthless touch on a pitch you’d be worried to run a horse out on.
Here are the goals and nice one Pav!
