    I enjoyed the read. But would say VDV playing a peripheral role would certainly only apply to the amount of time he spent on the pitch. He set up a few chances and started some attacks from the back and had a couple of decent efforts on goal. Shame he got too far under the ball or his cheeky attempted lob of Given would have been another class goal from our dutchman. I’ll remember this game for the way we dominated the match, kings ability to read moves the day before the game. Bales scorching turn of pace. Parkers steel and never say die attitude. Moderic’s guile and the sheer class of VDV who has the ability to see what others don’t. There’s a gold star for every spurs player who trod onto the turf this night. It’s not often Spurs put up a performance like this. I’d say VDV’s appearance after a hammy injury personifies what spurs have been lacking in the past..genuine committment leading to real competition for places. What’s it like watching Tottenhams players performing like a team to a single man…I’ll tell ya..Magic!

    I’m sure Spurs fans enjoyed it. As A Villa fan, McLeish’s starting line up – Heskey and Hutton in midfield, plus his failure to change tactics when his park the bus strategy had been exposed – was a pathetic surrender. His ultra negativity, more than any past association with BCFC, is what will get him the sack.
