It's clear and has been for a couple of seasons now. Tottenham's main weakness is in the middle of their midfield and under Andre Villas-Boas, it's even more obvious.

As their formation has evolved into a similar 4-2-3-1 formation to Chelsea, the problem has become even more apparent and that's the gap between their back four and holding midfield two.

Villa reaction

The new era continues to make us happy.

What I quite like with Meulensteen is that he appears to be in the business of fixing issues, rather than hoping they might go away.

A good example here is his midfield setup yesterday. Midfield has been our unspoken horror this year: everyone's been piling on the defence and the attack but neither of these units can make a fist of things without some support from midfield.

An opening day win is a small bundle of joy for which we should all be grateful, so while there are undoubtedly a few polite coughs and pointed looks when we reflect on the manner of the thing, ‘tis probably best to bow humbly, express our thanks and sidle off. Playing a newly-promoted mob on their own patch on the opening day carries a moderate health warning, given that their fledgling enthusiasm is as yet undimmed by an eight-game losing streak, so firm manly handshakes all round, but no celebration much beyond that.

And that, it appears, is how football works. But when 38 games end with us essentially taking pride of place at the head of a 16-strong cohort of no-man's-land stragglers, I am rather inclined to think ‘Dash it all, what's the point?

For sure our lot will put Sunderland to the sword – or complicate things somewhat before stretching ahead in the final 10-20 – but even with a mooted million pound bonus being dangled in front of them, the chances of Newcastle doing the necessaries seem more Stuart Nethercott than Ledley King.
