Southampton 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – 28th October 2012

A feeble first half performance by Southampton laid the foundations for yet another defeat as they Saints lost to AVB’s impressive Spurs side.

Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey put the visitors two goals up by half-time as the Saints’ defensive problems continued to plague the Premier League new-boys. However, after the break, the home side rallied, with Jay Rodriguez firing home from a difficult angle on 66 minutes. The striker, along with Rickie Lambert, had chances to level the scores, but ultimately it was the north Londoners who would take all three points and move into the top four.  As for Nigel Adkins’ charges, they continue to be let down by poor defending.

    Bale’s header was class and Dempsey at it again poaching another goal.

    I just hate it when players pull the “I’m not celebrating ’cause I scored against my old club” routine. It’s alright to not celebrate but don’t make a show of it like Bale did running halfway across the box with his hands held up.

    They interviewed him after the game and he spoke of how ‘heart-breaking’ it was to score, all the while he had a smile as wide as the nile across his face
