In what has become a familiar tune early this season, Spurs played well, actually bossing long stretches of the match. When the final whistle blew, however, we saw Everton take a share of the spoils in what felt like the most one sided 0-0 draw I've seen our boys play since the opener of the 2010-11 campaign against Manchester City.
This week could be an interesting one as we saw some players make the way back from injury (Danny Rose), banishment to the bench (Nabil Bentaleb), or simply in positions we haven't often seen them play for the senior team (Ryan Mason). The match also included our first extended look at young phenom/savior/deity Dele Alli. If you all don't rate him as perfect, we didn't watch the same match, and you are very bad at watching football.
We were tempted to leave a place for the distinguished referee, but this world is full of enough anger already. Live and let live we say.
As a refresher, here's the scale once again:
- 10: World Class or Amazing
- 9: Very good
- 8: Good
- 7: Above Average
- 6: Average
- 5: Below Average
- 4: Bad
- 3: Very bad
- 2: Abysmal
- 1: I don't know what this would look like. A six year-old playing against adults?
Anyway, have at it, and let's see who made the community grade.
