Sunderland 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – 7th December 2013

Britain Soccer Premier League

Spurs battled to a precious victory at the Stadium of Light on Saturday, a result which takes some of the pressure off manager Andre Villas-Boas. Adam Johnson had given the Black Cats the lead after some fumbling from Hugo Lloris but a close-range effort from Paulinho before the break followed by a John O’Shea OG in the second-period secured a hard-fought, but deserved win for a Tottenham side who worked hard for the three points. Gus Poyet’s Black Cats can look at the plethora of OG’s they have conceded this season as a pretty big sign that things are going against them, but there was enough here to hint at a better future for the strugglers.

    Unfortunately I don’t think it does take the pressure off of AVB as there are certain elements in the media that definitely have it in for him. I had the misfortune to listen to some of the match commentary on talkshite yesterday and the biased negative bullshit about Spurs and AVB spouted by the commentator and the hideous Stan ( I tweated/thought of that first) coleymore was hard to take. Then I stupidly tuned in again this morning only to hear some fat scouse ex footballer and his ignorant tart espousing the same kind of vicious bile.
