Teams managed to park the bus against chelsea and not give them room to attack into this season, they did it to Barcelona as well, and over at Juventus as well.One game in four years doesn't change the number of times we lost when the other guys got compact, parked the bus and didn't give us the space to attack into.
Not sure about that. I found that once we'd made the top 4 once, the rest of the league took us fairly seriously from that point on. We weren't "Lads, it's Tottenham" for anyone but United.Teams managed to park the bus against chelsea and not give them room to attack into this season, they did it to Barcelona as well, and over at Juventus as well.
The frequency at which it happened during those 4 years was a lot less than its happened in the 3 years since.
If a well parked bus will work against Barcelona, it'll work against us as well. I think we'll get better as the squad matures, since we have some guys who seem decent at finding passes in tight spaces and/or shooting from range. But it still is a tactic which works well. That's why Pulis and Fat Sam manage to stay employed.So we've not made any progress then?
