SUNDAY AUGUST 26
We were all disappointed to lose at Blackburn.
We wanted to come home with the minimum of a point and if you lose and deserve to lose it is always disappointing.
Everyone knew before the game that we had to be careful in the first 10, 15 minutes.
But they scored early and that is always the key to win the game at home. If you score early it is always easier to play and we let them do that.
We watched them against Manchester United and with the crowd, they come forward early on. It is also hard against a newcomer, they are positive and they are pleased to be back in the Premiership and it is hard to play them. But that is not an excuse and we are all disappointed.
The players are very down. We are human and we didn’t go to Blackburn to lose. We came back to make it 2-1 and had chances but is always hard to come back.
You can see we are disappointed. That was not the real Tottenham. But you have to look forward and if you are too much down, it doesn’t help.
You can see everyone is disappointed and everyone says now ‘we can do better’.
