Fantastic result after the Arsenal disappointment. 4 away wins in a row! I think it's a first for us in the Premier League.

Kilman MOTM for me, but Donk did well at both ends of the pitch today, a much needed good performance from him. Coady had a good game too as well as a decent debut from Cundle who didn't look out of place or overawed.

Great result aided and abetted by some shambolic defending by Spurs and some pretty ordinary finishing. Great three points and , like United, payback for their mugging us off at our place. Noice

First half I was honestly a smidge worried. Cundle and Saiss were playing on different planets, the back three weren't entirely in sync yet...

The second half was back to the defensive soundness I'm used to. RAN and Semedo guilty of being dispossessed too often (they were given no protection by Friend, tbf), but the back three are all ridiculous. They fill each other's gaps so exceptionally.

Brilliant result! Kilman outstanding. Cundle great debut. Jimenez back to it.
I didn't think we'd get something but fair play to the manager and the boys!

Love Pod with his quick feet and ability to beat a man, but second half he seemed to lose possession every time he received it. Needs to improve that side of his game. Great result though. Defence was magnificent.

Kilman MOTM - absolutely superb.

What a result. Back to 4 points off 4th with a game in hand on West Ham and Man Utd.

Still not a massive fan of going in to full on defensive mode from the 46th minute but the lads threw themselves in front of everything in the second half.

Really wasn't expecting that. Probably shouldn't get carried away, but we have to be in with a good shout for top 7 if North London is setting the standard. Great from Max, again.

Good result, but we made things hard for ourselves with that 2nd half. Kilman MOTM by a long way, but Coady, Neves and Cundle also really good. Podence pissed me off no end as he did so many good things but made some brainless decisions and gave the ball away so frequently I was beginning to think he's colour blind... Donk had a decent enough game, although was guilty of a couple of poor decisions too. We did well controlling tje game in injury time with Hwang, Fabio and Trincao doing enough to keep possession and see the game out.

Up to 7th, happy days.

Could do with Leicester taking points off West Ham today and then we face Leicester next Sunday.

Cundle looked absolutely spent when he came off. This game will hopefully do him a world of good

Fully deserved, could have been more and they barely laid a glove on us.

Kilman MOTM by a mile and a very encouraging debut from Cundle, looks like we have a player there.

U7s standard defending from them for the goals and indeed throughout but that's not our problem.

Matt Doherty 😀 What an absolutely shite excuse for a footballer.

Absolutely delighted by that result. Kilman must be the Premier League revelation of the season. A behemoth at the back, he is just brilliant. So pleased for him.

Leicester beat West Ham and then we do Leicester on Sunday and shit is still really interesting. For me, there isn't really a lot between the teams in 4th-8th. We are in a mini-league, and the rewards for winning that mini-league are huge. I do now think we can make Conference minimum, but let's try and aim higher than that.

I said we'd probably go and beat Spurs in my post on the Arsenal verdict thread. So I take full credit for the win today! My man of the match, Max Kilman! Also, well done Cundle. Could have easily had an assist today with that pass to Jiminez, who should have hit it first time. Bags of potential. Dont fuck this one up Wolves! Only real negative was the amount of times we gave the ball away today but you can't have everything! UTW!

Just to add to the comments on Cundle, well done to that man - came in to the 11 in a massive game for the club, following on from a defeat, and looked every inch the PL midfielder. Looked a more accomplished player than Harry Winks!

Solid defensively for the most part, though few moments where a bit of individual magic was required to make a last gasp intervention.

Attacking was largely disjointed but enough in the first half to take advantage of the mess that Spurs backline currently is.

Think everyone largely did what was asked of them with a few stand out moments for the likes of Kilman with some last ditch defending. Only individuals I'd have much negative to say about would be the front two.

Jimenez didn't seem to offer all that much of an outlet for the most part, would like to see the stats on touches if anyone finds them but can remember very few times he was the man receiving a long pass from the back, though he played well enough when he was involved. Podence pretty much the opposite, always seemed to be able to make himself available to receive the ball when others were under pressure but then struggle to remember a time he did something worthwhile when he got it. Almost exclusively picking the wrong option and even managed to execute it poorly the few times his brain didn't let him down, never hid though which you've got to give him some credit for.

Think the three who ended up making up the attack at the end all did their bit. Makes the Podence performance all the more galling when all of his potential replacements made a better fist of what they had and could've perhaps helped see the game out a little easier if introduced earlier.

Their shooting was worse to be fair :ROFLMAO:

I didn't get to see the game but great result and really encouraging to read good things about Luke Cundle.
