Both sides were given plaudits for a pulsating game of football, and Spurs were given praise by Sunderland manager (and a former Spur) Gus Poyet, amongst others. Spurs had enjoyed 71% of the possession in the first half, and 63% overall. They had more than twice as many shots than did the home team, and more than the same ratio of shots on target. Spurs attacked in wave after wave of Pochettino’s 4-2-3-1 formation, which moves up the pitch in an enclosing crab-like style, but too often lacked the pincer to provide the killer touch. Having taken an early lead after a drawn first half, there looked like being only one winner, but much as we wanted that two goal cushion, it became elusive, and ultimately, as we have so often seen, Spurs paid the penalty, with a soft own goal to give away two points.
Having lost a two goal lead Spurs rode their luck in the second half following an evenly contested first period. Spurs had started well but the visitors closed down quickly and stopped the runs of Georgiou and threatened with the pace of Campbell and Wright. In the end I think Spurs will be happiest with the point.
The draw puts West Brom into second place in the table with Spurs fourth. Next week Spurs travel to Leicester which is usually a tough place before entertaining Chelsea the following week.
Spurs sailed through the second leg of this Europa League fourth round qualifying match, and into the Group stage of the competition. The draw will take place today (Friday 29th August, 2014).
When you consider that only two of tonight's starting line-up ( Lloris and Kaboul) started Sunday's game against QPR, and that the same two players are probably the only likely starters against Liverpool, it is quite a strong second team we have!
The Spurs Odyssey message board is often the first place to hear genuine "ITK" information about our beloved team, and it also has an off-topic section where non-football matters are discussed.
There is also a great archive of filed material with links to some great Spurs history and goals.
