Manchester United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – 29th September 2012

Manchester United suffered their second defeat of the campaign on  Saturday evening, as AVB’s Spurs side registered their fist win in eons at Old Trafford.

United were poor in the first-half, with Moussa Dembele bossing the midfield. Left-back Jan Vertonghen netted after just two minutes after running through the United backline, while Gareth Bale doubled the lead on the half-hour mark as the north Londoners ran riot.

After the break, United regrouped and Nani got one back. However, a minute later, Tottenham restored their two-goal advantage after Clint Dempsey pounced on a loose ball in the box. Incredibly, Shinji Kagawa then netted for United straight from the kick-off as the game turned into a basketball match.

However, ultimately Fergie’s men couldn’t get another goal as Tottenham defended for their lives. AVB finally seems to be settling in at White Hart Lane while Fergie’s failure to purchase a top class central midfielder could come back to haunt him this season.

    After the rout of 3 goals in as many minutes in the second half I fully expected United to go on and win the game 4-3.

    Such is the confidence we have, such is our belief and such is our ability.

    We really pushed Spurs back for the last 20 minutes (at one time the possession was 85% United) but van Persie missed a real sitter with his left peg and Scholes had a blast deflected by the mammoth (in every sense of the word) Friedel.

    We definitely deserved a draw at least. Spurs were shitting themselves for the last 20 minutes.

    But yeah, I put my hands up and say well done Spurs. AVB did his homework and it paid off.

    You could see what it meant to him and the fans at full-time (but for different reasons, I think).

    We will be back, Spurs. See you at White Hart Lane.
