Let's make no bones about it. Tottenham were awful. No width. No creativity in midfield. No genuine surety in defence. But above all other awfulness'esses was that total absence of service to the strikers.
What is the point of having Bent, Berba, Keane & Defoe if no one is capable of creating space/opportunity for any of them?
Jenas is an increasingly popular whipping boy... I refuse to surrender him. He does foul up. But generally his blunders fail to outweigh his good stuff. He cannot be held accountable for other players lack of movement.
Sunderland were ordinary but consistent. We were over fussy, inhibited and unsynchronised. To use Andy Gray speak... Everton at home now looks like an 'ask'.
