Blues Well Beaten

Blues Well Beaten

Despite a very resilient performance, Birmingham went down to a late Lennon goal at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham had large spells of pressure, with them breaking through on 72 minutes. However Blues were not without chances and they took theirs on the 75th minute for Bowyer to slot home the equalizer.

They were a much stronger team with a higher expectation; it was a performance full of positives in retrospect and relation to Blues' targets. McLeish will surely be happy with some of the chances Birmingham managed to create through McFadden, Larsson and Benitez.

Blues had a shout for a penalty Turned down when McFadden seemed to of had his heels clipped, and despite being on the back foot, they went forward with vigour and resilience, much like how they defended.

Well done Tottenham for a brilliant and exciting performance, 3 points well earned after Blues provided a little more than your average scare.

A fair result but a cruel way to lose so late in the game. The game cost us dear though, Modric out with a broken leg. Gutted.

You certainly made life hard for us, and although you came to our ground packed the midfield and set out to stifle us it is something we will have to grow accustomed too. You can't argue we were dominant in the 1st half but you pretty much has us locked down. 2nd half we lost momentum with some forced subs and from there on in it was anybodys game. Crouch though deserved his goal and was unlucky not to get more, but with the help of Larsson and Benitez you kept up the pressure and got rewarded when our defence lost the plot and gifted you the goal. Last 15 minutes were frantic and but for a bit of Lennon magic you would of earnt a hard fought point. I reckon you could use another striker who would benefit from the creativity of Larsson and Benitez otherwise you are going to struggle to win games especially away from home. GL for the rest of the season though.

Thought you were outplayed but unlucky not to scrape a point in the end.
