Watford 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2 (03/12/2008) 03/12/2008

Five thunks from the League Cup Quarter FInal

1- Enormous fun for ten minutes.  After that… echoes of both Premiership seasons.  A reasonable effort, not abject humiliation, but painfully inevitable for all that.

2- Why aren’t there any nasty bastards in our team any more?  Surely the most gentle, mild mannered Watford team in a long long while?  What would you have given for  a Heidar, a  Doris, a Tommy Mooney in the second half? 

3- What is the point of Tottenham?

4- For all that we should have been behind at half-time, soft penalty calls from bigclubcentric refs notwithstanding, the switch around of personnel gave us a much more convincing shape, even if Lee Williamson has never really “worked” in a wide position.   Tommy’s cleverness has rarely been wasted out wide, but Williamson is much more forceful in the thick of the action – seemed an odd way round to employ the pair.  Jenkins and Bridcutt in central midfield looked reasonably convincing mind.

5-  Aaron Lennon.  Ainsworth Deluxe.
