    “the cocks of the north”. Can’t fault that description.
    Spot on about the way Defoe is playing at the moment, you just expect him to score every time he plays. I’m no fan of Redknapp, but he seems to know what makes him tick, and plays to his strengths. It’s also coming through in his England games. In the tighter games in the later stages, where one goal is often the difference, he could be the difference between progressing or being knocked out.

    As far as I could see Harry Redknapp’s face was wearing a Manchester United shirt.

    For my mind ‘Arry made a tactical error in starting with Crouch in this game.

    It fundamentally changed the way Spurs have been playing to date and it showed; rather than getting the ball to Defoe or Lennon’s feet like they have been too often the ball was shovelled forward with Crouch the target.

    Fine in theory but meat and drink to the two best centre backs in the League unfortunately.

    And of course the absence of Modric played a part, as it did this weekend against Chelsea.

    But hey, it’s a long season and it’s been a good start for the Lilywhites.
