Spurs thrash Bolton.
Spurs thrashed Bolton with two very different performances thanks to the the incompetent Poll causing chaos once again. Never content to see us do well after the Chelsea media spin earlier in the season he now looks to do one over on us. Some breathtaking football saw us lead 3-0 in next to no time and Bolton were dead and buried so Poll evened things up by dismissing Robbie Keane for a deliberate handball stopping a goal. Speed scored the resulting penalty and we faced 65 minutes or so of Bolton style football with ten men.
What was important was the fact we went in with a two goal cushion. This allowed Jol to organise the troops into two banks of four defending as a team with Berbatov alone up front looking to hold up the ball so Lennon, Jenas and Tainio could support. It worked very well and Bolton resulted to launching balls to the back post, which we did not always defend too well but Robinson, Zokora and in particular Dawson kept them at bay. Berbatov was absolutly fantastic in holding the ball up while the midfield supported well. Jol make a good change with the tiring Tainio coming off for Steed who was able to take the pressure off the back four with his forward running with the ball and he set up the fourth goal of the afternoon. Zokora showed again why we paid £8 million for him and Dawson was immense.
