We did it again!

We did it again!

After we broke the deadlock against Arsenal it seems that we have found our way against the teams based in London! The 1-3 win against Tottenham maintained us at the top of the table and I am very confident we will remain there for another two match days as we are now facing Southampton and Bolton at St James Park. If we really want this result to actually be of any importance we should not lose any of the 6 points in the next two games.

As far as the game is concerned I was a bit worried because Dyer and Speed were not going to be in the squad. When a team loses two key figures obviously the team's plans have to be rearranged accordingly and sometimes that is not so easy. However I believe we played very well. Tottenham had only two chances from dead balls. They managed to convert one of them, but apart from these two chances they did not really trouble us. In the second half we improved our performance. When Robert came in I moved back in my usual position as a center back and Distin moved to the left. When we scored the first goal I knew that it was a matter of time to score another goal. The third one was just the icing of the cake.

In this turn of the season I do not really care about the score as long as we continue winning the 3 points in every game. We are so close to achieve something great this season in both the FA Cup and the League that it would be a pity if we do not manage to at the end of the day.
