Norwich mugging Spurs once again. I think I'm actually going to be dissapointed the next time we lose to them.
Mark Bunn is a really good keeper, even better than I previously thought. I don't understand why he moved to us when he could realistically be a number one at a decent club. He made two big saves in the games before the late penalty save. He also commanded his box really well and I especially enjoyed it when he clattered Dempsey when punching one cross away.
Credit must be given to Chris Hughton who has previously been criticised for only swapping like for like. His tactical changes and replacements won us the game. He has also achieved something that Paul Lambert could not fulfill, a decent NCFC cup run. Well done sir. Alex Tettey's arrival completely changed the game.
On the other hand, ABV's dreadful late tactical switch lost the game for Spurs in the sense that it invited Hughton to make a bold change. If Spurs didn't swap a midfielder for a defender then I'm not sure that we would all be so happy tonight. The sub Vertonghen (spelling?) also scored the equalising og which only compounded the daft pressure inviting switch. If Spurs were higher up the pitch would they have even got into the succession of set piece situations which became their ultimate downfall? Whatever the case may be, it seems that Hughton has worked AVB out.
EDIT - Oh, Villa!
