Tottenham Hotspur 2:3 Birmingham City

This game was certainly tense! I wasn't expecting to win aganst Spurs away so I'm very pleased with the result. We managed to go ahead in the first half through a McSheffery penalty after he was tacked in the box. The first half was nervy because Spurs had plenty of freekicks and corners which they put to decent use. We were holding on a little bit, but we got to half time.

The introduction to the second half was very disappointing, as we conceded twice - Robbie keane with a penalty and then with another goal. Berbatov just after this missed a chance and hit the post--if they'd have scored at that point we probably would've lost the game. Fortunatly, Cameron Jerome managed to equalise with a great shot, although the Spurs defense were poor. Robbie Keane went on to be sent off, although he didn't deserve to be, and the desision had an important effect on the game. We managed to dominate the last 10-15 minutes of play and although Forssell missed a shot after a great cross from sub Kapo, Larsson fired in an absolutely brilliant goal to win us the game.

Overall, this was a good first game for the new manager although the passing could be better and we needed to get Jerome into the game a bit more.
