Anti-climactic or brilliant? City were dominated, no question about it. But who were the real winners of the debut match of the season? Tottenham with a delicious display of football, or City securing a point from a very tough away fixture?
True, we may have not secured three points, but our display was enough to scare other teams straight. Vicious attacking football in the first half saw Tottenham dictate the game, keeping City on the back foot. Joe Hart should be offered oral pleasures from all his teammates after such a performance.
I honestly can say that once we missed so many opportunities, I could not see Spurs scoring on the day. It’s just something I have become used to unfortunately. Can you blame me? I don’t think our lack of scoring will be necessarily haunting us like last year. Joe Hart was simply brilliant, blocking some guaranteed goals and saving face for the Man City owners. Poor Shay Given.
It’s still a long grueling season with Champions League on our plates and Europa on theirs. Regardless of how many points were awarded, I was quite proud of the squad.
And tomorrow history is made. Tottenham face off against Swiss-side Young Boys in an away fixture which will be tough. The fact that the players will have to adjust to the turf is already a bit of a gamble, inclusive of potential injuries due to the synthetic grass material. What will come of it? I don’t know, but I do know that I am more confident than ever after watching how we kicked off the season.
Come on you Spurs! Put this match to rest and let’s host an away fixture at the Lane where we strut our own “young boys” on the pitch.
Quite the confident bastard, aren’t I?
