If the team had the same attitude as the fans, ie that they weren't expecting a battle/ were taken by surpriseI'm sorry, I really am trying hard to work out the logic here. You're saying that because we Spurs fans on here almost all think that shirt pulling should be a straight red and that the team you follow was not "overly physical" in your opinion does not make the fact that both a bad kick from your goalkeeper and two lucky deflections were necessary for the team we support to beat the team you support.
I might come back to that later. I might not.
Congratulations on taking back with you a day you can be proud of. Good luck with your promotion.
