    Danny Murphy (football expert) on motd talking about the 3 behind the striker "I saw them earlier in the season and they were so rigid".
    I hate this flimflam from people who see us play a few times a year.
    Poch had the 3 behind the striker rotating from preseason.

    Just watched the game again and noticed something quite funny in the early minutes; Rose and Walker combining at the opposition 16 yard line. No other Spurs players even close to being that high up the pitch! lol o_O

    Main question is though: if we play like that against the Scum next week, what would we realistically expect the result will be?

    Villa hitting some form (unlikely) and getting something from the game today, and us beating the scum next round would do very nicely indeed!

    Completely different game IMO

    The gooners I know are bricking it as they think we can go through the middle of them as they have no spine

    I on the other hand think we need to play Dier rather than Fazio as Fazio seems to struggle with the more mobile forwards and I expect to see Walcott playing against us

    Would love to see Bentelab back because Poorlinho doesn't offer enough so far against the better sides

    Dembele could be incredibly important

    Thought we were great for a period in the first half. After the second went in we reverted to type. Tippy tappy sideways and backward passes, We lost all momentum and tempo and let them back in. Only two world class saves by Hugo saved our blushes.

    I watched it with two arsenal fans who were incredibly impressed with us

    They thought we took the lead and looked relatively comfortable letting them have the ball

    The reason they were world class saves were because we limited them to having to make very good chances

    We didn't make it easy for them and we played on the counter once we had the two goal cushion

    Nice to get a comfortable win and a clean sheet as well. It has been a long time since we beat a team by more than 1 goal in the league. Ironically, this is also our biggest away win of this season. This is what you get when you can get the all-important second goal much earlier in the game. This let us kill off WBA much earlier instead of having to put under pressure late on. But the match was much closer than the 3-0 scoreline suggests. WBA were unlucky not to score atleast one goal as they had a ball cleared off the line, hit the bar once and Lloris had to pull off 2 or 3 world class saves.

    We again had to rely on Eriksen and Kane for the goals. Credit to Eriksen for continuing his goal run. It was a world class freekick from him for our first goal. It was a curling freekick which is always difficult to be saved even if the goalie could have done better. Great to see Kane getting back his goal scoring touch as well. I think It is no coincident that Kane managed to score again after Adebayor was dropped. Adebayor seemed to jinx Kane when he came back into the squad. Big credit to Kane for scoring his 19th and 20th goals of the season. Both his goals, including the pelanty, was well-taken goals. But not sure if he would have taken the pelanty if Townsend had been around.

    Credit to our midfield for having a good match, especially Dembele. Dembele was involved in our first 2 goals. He won us the freekick from which Eriksen scored our first goal and he also set up Kane for the second goal. In fact Dembele troubled the WBA defence with his run and dribbling skills. Thought Paulinho had a good game as well as he was involved in a lot of actions. Too bad Lamela didn't have a good match as he was hardly involved in the match. Mason had a quiet game as well. Also Chadli looked rusty when he came later on.

    Great to see our defence keep a clean sheet after so long. But we had to rely on world class saves from Lloris and some luck as well. Credit to Rose for the goal-line clearance after being saved by Lloris earlier in the match. It was a crucial moment as it could have put pressure on us if they had scored then. We were also lucky that they only hit the bar in the second half. And Lloris had to be alert 3 or 4 times to keep them out as well. Despite the clean sheet, it is clear we need to improve our defending further.

    It is always a great feeling when we get comfortable wins. Even more so when we win away. Nice to get back into winning ways after losing to Palace in our last away match. It was important to get that win as we play Arsenal and Liverpool next. Hope we will go into those matches with more confidence now.

    In theory, except they weren't
    a) enjoying it as much or
    b) playing with confidence

    I think right now it is just starting to click into gear in the way Poch wants it to, and for me, it will only get more fluid. Happy days. Very exciting.
