Bonus Points

Going into the last three league games – Liverpool (H), Stoke (H), Spuds (A) – if anyone had told me we’d take seven points from those games, I’d probably have laughed at them. Yet that’s precisely what we did.

Following the wins over the Mickey Mousers and Stoke, we battled our way to a hard-earned point at White Hart Lane yesterday. We rode our luck a bit at times, as Tottingham dominated possession, and generally looked quicker and sharper than us, particularly in the middle of the park. Yet the much-vaunted Spurs wide-men, Bale and Lennon, were largely kept in check by our full-backs, Bridge earning himself the Sky man of the match award. And when Spurs did create opportunities in front of goal, Green was at his best to keep them out – the highlight being a world-class save from a Bale free-kick, and Jacobsen also did his job to clear the ball as it came back into play. We even had a few chances to snatch a goal ourselves. Cole should have done much better when one-on-one with the Spurs ‘keeper in the first half, and their ‘keeper made a fine save from Ba late on.

The visiting fans were also in fine spirits…

“East London’s our home, East London’s our home, **** off Tottenham, East London’s our home!”

“Four points and a stadium…”

🙂 🙂

We have been picking up points quite nicely since Christmas, but so have the other teams in trouble, so we still have a lot to do in order to preserve our Premier League status. It’s going to go right to the last game I think. Man Utd at home next. Should be an easy one, after all, we’ve already thrashed them 4-0 at the Boleyn this season!
