To this point, Spurs have been probably the most disappointing team I’ve ever been associated with, nominally or otherwise. With just a single point through three rounds of the Premiership season, Spurs have been more or less awful, though they did show some nice things in their draw at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago.
Tonight, Tottenham will host Aston Villa, a club squarely in the middle of the pack as far as the EPL table goes. It will also be the debut for the newest addition to Spurs, Roman Pavlyuchenko from Spartak Moscow. After finally getting a goal from pre-season star Darren Bent at Chelsea, perhaps Spurs can pick up the offensive pace and try to resemble the club who dominated Celtic, Roma and Dortmund this summer.
If Spurs cannot earn a victory tonight, it will be a sad state of affairs in North London. Even a draw would be a disaster considering how the season has started. Though four points through four weeks would not be good, it would be quite a bit better than one or two points, if for no other reason than player and fan morale.
