It was a funny game in part. two own goals in one match may not be a record but it sure is uncommon. Tottenham were largely free flowing and had a plan. Bolton were invigorated by their substitutions but the respite was fleeting as they are fundamentally rubbish.
Gomes 7 A couple of cracking saves from Eddie Grant late on.
Assou Ekotto 6 Really good when not losing posession.
Dawson 7 Almost quite nearly awesome.
Bassong 7¼ Much improved. More composed. Sexy time shot.
Bale 9 Extraordinary. Again. Makes so much from quite often very little.
Bentley 6 Began slowly, went quiet midway through then fizzled out.
Huddlestone 6½ Some devine touches and some not so.
Modric 8¾ This is our Champions League player. Say hello everyone.
Wilson 6¾ Kept fading in and out. Suspect passes R Us.
Kranjcar 7¼ Exciting is how I’d describe him.
Pavyluchenko 9 He’s a treasure, he’s a find, he’s a man, he’s, he’s a poppet.
Defoe 7½ I like my strikers greedy. Not sure if I like’em that greedy.
