It’s nice to steal two points. It reminded me of the days of Eric, up until they scored … RVP is already, to my mind, creeping closer towards that bracket (I maybe drunk off admiration for him – ask me again in a couple of days).
MOTD2 were poor in their assessment of this game. Alan Hansen dusted off his ‘De Gea having an issue with crosses’ line. Awful. AND the #Bantz that continued after Pat Nevin made a valid and astute observation regarding the Rooney penalty shout were embarrassing. I’m all for sillyness, but when you’re presenting analysis of the day’s big match for a flagship programme, I think you need to offer more than that.
Was pleasing to see Vidic and Rio keeping them at bay (sometimes more by luck than judgement) like it was 2009. Tiny baby steps of improvement from TV maybe, when he came on, too?! Rafael continued this season’s form – with a little help from his friends – in keeping Bale at arms length. All round solid. A point against Spurs, is a point against Spurs, is a point against Spurs. Nothing new to report besides, you’ll be pleased to hear.
