Hart on Spurs defeat

Paul Hart, much like ourselves, was left 'frustrated' once again by another defeat that probably should not have been...

He felt that: 'apart from 15 or 20 minutes in the first half we dominated against an extremely good side and we're all very disappointed we didn't come out with what I thought we deserved,' buy he felt we were 'excellent again.'

We had enough chances that we should have taken that he was 'disappointed we haven't taken.' Some of the misses were horrible, Aruna Dindane does not need me to tell him this, but Heurelho Gomes was inspired, some of his saves were fantastic.

Hart also had praise for the fans who he thought were 'tremendous' in our backing of the side again and 'respectful' of the returning Harry Redknapp - who himself has also been complimentary towards the fans and the club.

See Harts views on the above and more, including thoughts on the sendings off of Jermain Defoe and Michael Brown, in this sky sports video below...



All in all I thought Hart got most things right again and could not really be faulted for much, could he?

Although I would question taking Tommy Smith off though? It seemed we did this to try and get a little more width on the pitch but this did not exactly happen. Nadir Belhadj coming on was probably the right call, but for me he did not replace the right player...

I would have gone more cavalier myself, and really taken the game to the 10-men, and done this sooner - so, actually I guess I do not think that Hart got most things right, but am not blaming him for the defeat.

Leave Hart alone. For me there is only one person at fault for losing us that game and that is Dindane for missing those 2 GLORIOUS opportunities - He simply HAD to score from those 2 chances. No excuses.

I did hear that now Grant is on board, instead of looking for an Assistant Manager, they are looking for a striking coach. Which is a good idea! But they shouldn't have to look far, as Corporal Punishment, Guy Whittingham is already on the coaching staff. He knows where the net is. In fact, forget coaching, Guy get your flippin boots on!

Rug, I'm quite frankly sick of hearing Hart say " it's tough" and at no time explaining his tactical errors. No fellah he didn't get thongs right, too timid, too little and again way too late. Ok we missed some but when we arebosdingtje game and they are down to 10 men; why takeyour playmaker off. How many games until we decide - enough. Look at his record for the last 30 points of last season when arguably he had a better team! Now I haveto be honest here, I have never truly believed Hart is up to it, and conciously I have been loath to criticise but enough is enough. Grant may be "the toad" but that has to be better than the mouse, no time left, teto change.

From a tactical point of view Hart got it wrong. Why on earth did he play Ben Haim as left back to hold down Lennon??! Belhadj should have played there or at least on the left side of midfield; the Algerian has the pace to keep up with Lennon at least! Piqiuonne should have replaced Dindanne and Utaka's substitution should have been before! However I agree with Zigg that the match was lost because of Dindanne. Things could have been better had he scored the first sitter in the first place!
