Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (A BRAVE new thread)
I think Spurs half time sub would have been better to have Carrol come on for Naughton. Then have Vertonghen go out left, and Sandro come in as a stepping out centre-half. Then play 4-3-2 with Carroll - Huddlestone - Lennon in midfield, and Bale alongside Defoe upfront. I know hindsight and all that, but I think 3 at the back when all three of the defenders aren't the quickest is a bit risky. Vertonghen is very good, don't get me wrong, but he isn't the quickest. I honestly think we should have scored more given we were going 3 forwards on 3 defenders, but we got very lazy after scoring the fourth goal.
Also someone really needs to shoot David Pleat. He got players mixed up at least 10 time. It was ridiculous by the end, calling Andre Santos 'Mikel Arteta'. Another good one was calling our goalkeeper 'Koscielny'. He regularly got Huddlestone and Sandro mixed up too, but that's arguably more forgivable.
