Little we can do about the gap


As expected the huge gap in the corner where parts of White Hart Lane have been demolished are causing problems.

Goalkeeper Michel Vorm has conformed that the wind does indeed come whistling through the gap between the North and East stands and does make a significant difference to the ball.

This is making life more difficult for Lloris and Vorm and indeed our defenders who are all having to adapt. It is just another factor that is making this one of our toughest season. We have Champions League football, a top four place to maintain, two different sizes of pitch and playing surface, two different stadiums and the wind factor as well.

"It's one of those things that you can't do anything about. We need to concentrate on our own game and not think about the hole (in the stand). But for me, as a goalkeeper, the wind is just horrible."

I thought this would be more of an issue than fans realised, there is little we can do about it but adapt and of course it is the same for the opposition.



  1. More excuses, excuses, excuses.

    Maybe just once we might get a cohesive side together who will actually look to win something rather than look for things to hide behind.

    The elements are the issue this time ffs !

  2. Anonymous talks about excuses. To me that sounds like a whinge.

    No-one's saying they don't expect to keep competing at the highest level. Simply that it might be a little more complicated than usual.

    As fans, we're here to support the team. Not pull apart everything they say.
