Tottenham Hotspur: October schedule 2014/15

Originally posted on My Heart Beats Football:

Spurs have this history. They hire managers to revamp their team and when the winning grinds to a halt, they tend to fire them before the season is over. This causes chaos within the team. Mauricio was hired to do for Spurs what he did for Southampton and I think he is doing fine thus far. He might not take them to the CL this season, but they need to give people chances (talking to you, Levy!)

Yet, I still think Spurs can do much better then what they’re currently serving up for their fans. Lloris is growing frustrated at the lack of his mates’ passion and that says a lot.

Here’s to a fine October.

Thu 02nd: Spurs v Besiktas (Europa)

Sun 05th: Spurs v Southampton

Sat 18th: Man City v Spurs

Thu 23rd: Spurs v Asteras Tripolis (Europa)

Sun 26th: Spurs v Newcastle

TBA: Spurs v Brighton &…

Lloris the man as Spurs draw Arsenal on the road

Arsenal was expecting to badger Spurs and make off with a nice victory, but Hugo Lloris put a dent in their plans. In the end, they had to settle for a 1-1 draw, but it was Lloris’ superb goal-line save on Per Mertesacker which had fans talking.

After the match, he told Spurs TV:

“It was a really tough game. We showed great team spirit. We can improve but defensively we were strong.”

Lloris really kept the team in the game and was the Man of the Match.

Spurs disappoints at the Lane

Talking about the game is going to be frustrating because Spurs played as if they were uncomfortable except for a few players (Lloris, Eriksen). Spurs only had one shot on target and they were an unenthusiastic bunch. Lloris was the Man of the Match. His saves probably saved Spurs from getting a bad beating, but the team need to do more. Lloris was like a one man defender in the back there.

West Brom ended up winning 1-0 in the end, leaving Spurs with much to do for the season. Lloris looked as if he wanted to cry at the end of the game. Not a good look on the goalie.

Spurs, get your acts together.

Lloris picks up a clean sheet as Spurs comes to a scoreless draw

Hugo Lloris captained the Spurs to a disappointing scoreless draw in Belgrade against Partizan Belgrade, but the goalie had a great match. In the 61′ he made a tremendous stop to deny the hosts a goal opportunity.

Lloris picked up his 4th clean sheet out of 7 games this evening. However, you can see the goalie was not pleased with the draw.

A well deserved draw for Serbia and France

Le XI des Bleus: Lloris – Sagna, Varane, Mathieu, Digne – Pogba, Cabaye, Schneiderlin – Sissoko, Rémy, Cabella

Another draw for this match up!

Key moments from the match for me:

5′ Mathieu with France’s first shot but it goes over. Good link-up play from Digne and Cabella to set it up.

13′ Cabella wins a corner and he takes it. It’s low and Sissoko’s header couldn’t get to it as it bounces past him. An unmarked Pogba is at the end of it and he slots it home for the lead. His 4th for France.

22‘ Tosic wins a corner but hits Digne in the face in the process. No worries as Lloris takes the resulting header comfortably.

24′ Tosic again! Though the shot goes over the bar, Lloris is yelling at his sometimes incompetent back line. Story of his life.

48‘ Kolarov has it in the net but…

Euro 2016 qualifiers have kicked off. I’m currently watching Georgia v Ireland drawing at 1-1 at HT.

Serbia hosts Les Bleus in an hour and 45 minutes time in a friendly. Being hosts, France are excused from official qualifiers.

In their last 4 meetings, the French won thrice and drew once.

ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

The besties!

Bonne chance Benz!
