The legend of the Comeback Kings continues!

By on November 29, 2010


I think that Harry’s lads are amazing. They have already come from behind a couple of times this season and once more they have managed to frustrate their opponents.

Sometimes I feel that every Spurs match is a new episode of a drama series. They have to concede in order to come back from behind and win it. The victory is sweeter this way! For the manager, for the players, for the fans.

Aaron Lennon scored in the dying moments of the game to give Spurs another three points, meaning that the London-based club climbed to fifth place, six points behind league leaders United and one point behind 4th placed City. Now that’s a wonderful Sunday for a Spurs fan!

The first half was dreadful for Spurs as they lost Van der Vaart and Kaboul to injury within the first thirty minutes and conceded a goal in the 42nd minute when Skrtel managed to score after a Meireles free-kick.

It could have been 2-0 for Liverpool as Torres flicked the ball to Maxi who failed to round the goalkeeper. Torres had two opportunities to increase the lead as well but failed, giving Spurs the chance to fight back.

Bale has unlucky not to equalise when his shot was cleared on the goalline by Meireles. Martin Atkinson pointed to the spot as N’Gog decided to block a Bale free-kick with his hands, but Jermain Defoe failed to convert it. Luka Modric run past a posse of Liverpool players and his cross was turned into an own goal by Skrtel. 1-1 in the 66th minute.

The end was breathless: the referre denied Livepool a penalty, N’Gog and Carragher were substituted due to injury and, in the dying seconds, Aaron Lennon put the ball in the net. 2-1 for Spurs the final score and White Hart Lane errupted. It was a dramatic yet magnificient Sunday for every Spurs fan. Aaron Lennon’s late winner capped a perfect week to make it four successive victories for Harry Redknapp’s men.

Thumbs up for Harry’s lads as they constantly refuse to give up!

    Yes we were lucky to record a win. What if Pools missed chances counted? We need to dominate from the beginning & keep up the momentum. We managed to come back against Arsenal also.Our penaly takers need to be groomed immediately. My choice’s would be Kaboul, BAE & Hod ( in the absence of VDV).

    @Kit,

    You are right. Spurs are currently fifth in the league, as both Arsenal and Chelsea have 29 points.

    Thanks for the comment!
