Not a good feeling about this fourth big game in a row. Am minded of a few years ago after hard games v Arsenal and Schalke we played the rags at home and lost. In fact we went down with a whimper. I watched Ireland chasing for a ball that he should have got to but was outpaced and noted it happening all over the place....we just didn't seem to have the legs to quite compete.
The two CL games and the derby were hard energetic games and in the last two we seemed to slow in the 2nd half. Energy levels?
This will be another hard game, Spurs will give us no rest and there is a danger we might agin falter in the 2nd half.
Our big problem over the last couple of years has been our chances to goals ratio, somewhat masked because we create so many chances that lets us score plenty of goals. In the last two games, that has bit us on the bum. We should have been well out of sight in both games but 1-0 and 2-0 HT leads weren't enough.
I KNOW THAT YOU BELIEVE THAT YOU UNDERSTOOD WHAT YOU THINK I WROTE, BUT I AM NOT SURE YOU REALISE THAT WHAT YOU READ IS NOT WHAT I MEANT
