PAOK Thesseloniki Vs. Tottenham Hotspur, 2011 UEFA Europa League: Post-Match Thoughts

THESSALONIKI, GREECE - SEPTEMBER 15: Lino of PAOK slides into Giovani dos Santos of Tottenham during the UEFA Europa League group A match between PAOK FC and Tottenham Hotspur at Toumpa Stadium on September 15, 2011 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

I'm going to be completely honest: I don't have anything to say about this game right now. It was excessively boring. The first 10 minutes where the team looked lively and fluid were interesting, and stoppage time was nerve-wracking as Carlo Cudicini made one brilliant save and PAOK hit the crossbar once. As for the other 75-80 minutes of the game? Cue the sad trombone.

Yes, it's encouraging that our kids and reserves went into a hostile environment, played a team who is at least respectable, and managed to get a draw. I'm definitely happy for Andros Townsend, Tom Carroll, Harry Kane and the like. I'm happy that the players that were disappointing on the night were our more senior players, and that the youngsters all held their own.

I might be back with some more extensive thoughts tomorrow, and we'll certainly have some more extensive thoughts on Wheeler Dealer Radio tonight. But for now? Meh is all I have to say about this one. On to the Liverpool game.
