Shelf Side Tottenham

I did enjoy Jan at left-back though, he had more freedom to make those runs and link up with Bale.

Great that AVB switched it around at half time, bringing on Caulker for Siggy and freeing up Bale down the left was exactly what we needed.
Second thing though - euphoria tarnished by being in the middle of a bunch of boo boys at half time, so this time, as opposed to Norwich, I started singing " If you're booing Tottenham Hotspur you're a cunt!". Lot of sheepish faces when I turned around, but I bottled from finishing the song cos literally no one sang with me. While discussing this with my son in the queue at WHL station after the game, an older guy chipped in saying that the team were shit today, and that AVB would be gone by November, and we won't do as well as we did under dear 'Arry who was a great manager and did I really think AVB would get us fourth? It was only 3 world class Freidel saves that kept us in the game, he said. On what basis did I think AVB was any good?
He didnt actually admit to booing but I get the feeling he had been, by his need to defend it. So this isnt news of course but the boo boys are at least in part, Redknapp lovers who are looking for any excuse to get on AVB's back. They are not at all placated by today's win, this is only the start. AVB still has a long way to go before he gets all the fans on board. The negativity from the Paxton Road though - well it is spoiling the home games for me and I end up just being angry with the fans.
