Spot on from Chris, first commentator to point out what many of us have known for some time - it's not about the opposition being slow out of the blocks, sloppy passing, below parr performance. It's because our tactics make them look like that, swamping zones in a high press forces sloppy passing as players dither with a lack of an out ball.
I said earlier it was one of the best away performances in 45 years of watching.
Some spoke against referring to key matches, but that misses the point.
Albion took their resources and outsmarted a top European team with a very intelligent brand of football.
Spurs weren't under par, they were outwitted.
It's also the reason why we need to enjoy Potter while he lasts. If he was given a strong squad he could do stuff. And regardless of league position, I expect the phone will be ringing next season.
