The left back position of Arsene Wenger's era has been a rather stable position, Sylvinho to Ashley Cole to Clichy. Ever since Gael Clichy's departure to Manchester City, the left back issue is becoming a very pressing one. Though Clichy was not the best option, he was still a pretty decent player. It is also [.

Spurs 3-0 Man City, in pictures – Kranjcar wipes smile off Sparky’s face

Mini match report: Unexpectedly terrific performance by Spurs, with Aaron Lennon and especially Niko Kranjcar who scored twice, either side of a Jermain Defoe strike in devastating form on the flanks.

City never turned up (Robinho, take a bow), but then Tottenham didn't allow them to.

Robinho is a fraud

Robinho drives me cowshit crazy. There's no 'I' in team, but appropriately, there is an 'I' right in the middle of Robinho. All that skill and yet he wastes it like confetti it's an insult to his Man City team-mates and the club's fans.

The Brazilian must be one of the most selfish players I've ever seen in the Premier League.

Much better. Never underestimate Tottenham's ability to raise your spirits on a gloomy winters night. And raise spirits they certainly did as a 3-0 win silenced the critics and scribes who were preparing their 'not-good-enough' themed copy, expecting another Spurs defeat. Instead, the big spenders from Manchester came out second best as they were outplayed by the big spenders from North London.

After the highs of last week a potential trap game awaits.

With the concensus being that we are back on track (amazing what a victory can do) there is the potential to look past the trip to The Reebok to potentially tougher tests at Tottenham on Wednesday and Sunderland next weekend.

Hopefully that will not be the case though as players and management alike should be only too aware that this is the type of fixture that was prevalent in our recent run of draws.

Strangely, we've seen no pics of Rio. Perhaps he was busy in the back making sure the spag bol was seasoned to perfection.

We do, however, have some photos of United's Edwin Van der Sar looking very dapper, Louis Saha (Everton) doing the casual look right, and Man City's Sylvinho and Pablo Zabaleta enjoying knitwear.

Solid and unspectacular it may have been, but given some of the shambolic cup exits witnessed in recent years a routine FA Cup 3rd round win (against a bogey side) was very welcome.

It wasn't a performance that will live long in the memory, but it was a game that we controlled with the instruction to retain possession again very evident.

So says the NOTW this morning, who suggest it will be him, and not Ivan Cordoba, that will be Mancini's first signing:
The Eastlands boss has quickly identified the full-back positions as problem areas for a side that has conceded more goals than any other of the teams battling for a place in Europe.

No Garrido?

Whilst there are plenty of candidates to replace the injured Wayne Bridge, it doesn't appear Javier Garrido will be on of them judging by these comments from Mark Hughes:
"I've got a number of options but I would have no qualms whatsoever about putting Sylvinho in there, but Gareth has knowledge of that position as well.

CITY will be without left-back Wayne Bridge at least until the New Year.

But the Blues have survived a second defensive injury scare with Micah Richards set to be fit to face Bolton on Saturday.

Bridge is believed to have tweaked medial knee ligaments during the 2-1 weekend win over Chelsea and at first it was feared he may be a long-term casualty.

One thing that we have been able to rely upon in recent games - when we have not been playing well - has been the ability to get back into games when required, something that has preserved our unbeaten run.

Not tonight though. Through a combination of our own lacklustre play (comfortably our most poor of the season) plus an impressive Tottenham performance, our unbeaten run came to a shuddering halt tonight at White Hart Lane as Tottenham laid their claim to be a far more likely candidate for a potential Champions League spot.
