Bale Man of Match as Spurs struggle to overcome Crystal Palace

What a performance from Bale. Everywhere you looked, you could see his absence. Lennon ran up blind alleys all afternoon, Chadli looked like Gareth's double, without the pace, skill, composure, finishing and chimpish features, and Soldado took his penalty well but didn't look like he was worth a quarter of a Bale.

Yes Spurs won, but only courtesy of a lucky penalty. Palace couldn't complain about the award, but it was clearly ball to hand with no intent to commit the offence. Yes the arm was raised, but try lifting your leg above hip height without your arm going up with it. Impossible.

Most worrying of all for Spurs was the way Kevin Phillips, complete with bus pass, terrorised their back line after he came on. The Cockyfools won and enjoyed the bulk of the possession but Lloris had more meaningful saves to make over the course of the 90 minutes.

Is Bale worth £85m? Based on today's struggle to overcome a team that cost twenty five quid to put together, you bet he is!

  4. How can you say lucky penalty, if the ball hadn't of hit his hand it would have been a dangerous cross, which could have resulted in a goal, stopping crosses with your hand = penalty.

    You should go back to watching your boring Hammers.

  14. To all the misguided Cockyfools, I know Arsenal regularly hammer you, but that does not justify adopting the name Hammersfan. The clue to who I support is in my handle.

    1. So, you a Wimbledon fan...perhaps would have been better leaving some doubt that you are a fool ;-/

      Doesn't really matter who you support, a team with three players making their league debuts, missing its star player, and a few other 1st teamers, won an away game,against what is considered to be a traditional banana skin.
      Spurs had several chances to wrap the game up, and palace hardly troubled Lloris until at the death. Paulinho, one of the new signings, was MOTM, Soldado, another, scored, Chadli, the third, came into the game with plenty of promise for the future. Capoue, another new signing, coming on as a sub for his first ever appearance, had a cameo of class.
      It was the first game of the season.
      Some other teams lost at home, not settling any new players in (I dunno...maybe because they don't really have any).
      The penalty was nailed-on, and deserved based on the run of play - moments before Spurs had been turned down on another pretty good call.
      Spurs won the last NLD, and the one before that, they were comforatably ahead in until their somewhat wayward striker managed to get himself sent off.
      The implication seems to be harking back to the incredibly foolsih and ill-conceived notion that Spurs are somehow uniquely a one-man team. Afaiac, Spurs absolutely will have a better squad whether Bale is sold or not, so your cheap pops are jsut that.

    2. Even without Bale, we are still MILES better than your shitcunt tinpot council club. So sad that you are probably one of the moronic twats who genuinely believe you are as good as Spurs. 4 new players made debuts today against a newly promoted side, right up for it. Get a clue and write about grandad cole and that useless geordie lump carroll.

  17. Fair to be honest. Spurs did not play up to the hype.

  18. Hammersfan obsessed by the big club down the round as per usual. Embrace the fact that you support a little club, but don't embarrass yourself by writing nonsense. Yes it's going to be a long hard season chasing a Champions League spot; what have you got to look forward to other than your 2 Cup Finals against Tottenham? Utterly pathetic in every way

  19. I've seen worse starts to the season. Imagine having sold loads of players, not replaced them, and then get beat 3-1 by an average team at home, with a player sent off and a few key injuries... and then the home fans boo the team and call for the manager to be sacked. Imagine that, that would be HORRIFIC!

  22. I agree to some extent that we were poor.

    Our shooting accuracy must improve, with all the chances created we only need to hit the goal but we miss every time. Especially Sig sitter.

    Walker annoys me with his fancy football, and nearly scored an own goal with a back header to Lloris.

    I was impressed with Capoue, Paulinho and Soldado and of course our defence and GK.

    Not impressed with Sig and Walker. AVB needs to sign a RB quick, Walker taking it too easy.

  30. my mistake. I'm actually fine with this article knowing now it's a west ham supporter. Arsenal fans finish better than us, but for sone reason act like they have an inferiority complex. At least West Ham fans have an excuse. I don't hate you hammers. you amuse me. even the anti jew hssss chants were like "aweee they read a history book. how cute!" good luck on the season. bubble blowers

  31. Lilywhite Spur.
    To be fair, Gooner or WetSpam, he has a point. Sigurdsson got bullied, Lloris proved he's the best keeper in the league by a mile, not only in his shot stopping, but his sweeping up and distribution, both fullbacks were angry and created not a lot going forward, and we lacked creativity in the Modric/VDV hole. Soldado got no supply and Dembele other than that shot didn't do much. On the plus side, in those games in days gone by, we'd have lost. So a clean sheet and 3 points in an away London Derby game against a promoted buzzing team shows the futures bright.

  32. You're finally moving on to you're so called biggest rivals , spurs !!! , does this mean you'll finally fuck off and stop writing about Leeds ??

  33. The worst article i've ever read! Either a gooner or a hammer, you are just pathetic. Who cares who scored? Who cares who didnt play? As long as Spurs get 3 points, (remember 3 POINTS!!!) i have no complains.

  34. My brother in law in Dartford told me you are a Leeds fan...???

  35. I have been saying for ages that Bale/Tottenham are a one man team. I was so pleased that they never got champions league, hopefully he can go soon and they can become the mid table said they are. Without him they are very average and he must of scored/won half there games for them last season. Without the pen they would of drawn that against mighty Palace (lol)
