In a match that Southampton fans had built up into something resembling a local derby atmosphere (with all the venom, but little of the passion), Spurs kept their heads to maintain their good record against Southampton with a 2-2 draw that saw them come from behind twice when we had been guilty of bad defending.
The return of Hugo Lloris
return to the team and Vorm returned to the bench, with Ben Davies
coming in for the hamstrung Danny Rose and Mason coming back for
Paulinho, whose wife was due to give birth. Southampton had injury
and suspension issues, meaning changes in defence and midfield. The
sun shone down on what was supposed to be a sell-out crowd, but
plenty of red plastic seats were visible among the Southampton
Southampton were first
formed by a group of steelworkers who moved to find work in the
shipyards after being laid off from the steelworks around
Northampton. Travelling South, they decided that working as
metal-workers was cobblers, so they decided to form a professional
football team so that they could earn lots of money, drive fast
horse drawn carriages and take lots of laudanum (the 'dandy crack'
as it was known back in the day).

|What you thought|
How bad is the commentary on BT Sport ? Ian Whoever couldn't tell
when Lloris had punched the ball and Fazio had headed it, Michael
Owen claimed Mason had clearly let the ball hit his arm, when the
replay was playing showing it was his chest.
Their pundits talk over each other at their pitch-side desk and there is little added value to their comments that most fans could put forward. That Irish-Canadian-German accented Owen Hargreaves is the worst. He rarely makes an observation that is worth putting a microphone in front of him for. He makes Andy Townsend sound like a genius !!
