As always with Spurs, the magnificent disposal of Chelsea was followed by a struggle against a struggling side in Crystal Palace and the 1-2 defeat came in a game that Spurs should have done better in, but failed to keep the tempo up to trouble the home side.
As soon as the game began,
Palace looked to hit on the break, but Spurs had lots of possession
and the home team got ten players back behind the ball as soon as
they lost it. Strange tactics as Pardew, in charge of his new team
for the first time, had been manager of Newcastle United when they
beat Tottenham at the Lane earlier in the season without playing
Crystal Palace were once
ironically sponsored by Critall windows and were ready to change
their name to Critall Palace as part of the deal.

|What you thought|
|Benny The Ball||
What does Niall Quinn know about anything ? His comments on Sky were
nothing short of what you would expect from a Gooner. Biased as only
a Gooner could be, when he said that Walker “knew what he was doing”
when the ball hit him on the arm as he was running in the opposite
direction to it. And that Spurs players were guilty of every
free-kick given against them, while Palace were hard-working and
deserving of everything that came their way.
I am starting to think that ex-Spurs players have decided to boycott Sky, as Chris Coleman's selection as the studio guest alongside that other Spurs detractor, Jamie Redknapp, stacked everything against us.
Without a microphone to link us to the intimate thoughts of Alan Pardew, there were plenty of others to voice his views.
