Juande Ramos brings his Tottenham Hotspur side to the JJB this Saturday for the game against Wigan Athletic and I for one will be hoping that a repeat of last seasons entertainment will be served up by both clubs as the pressure is lessening with the season coming to an end and both clubs safely out of contention for everything
Last seasons encounter between the Latics and Spurs served up six goals in what was a splendid 3-3 draw that saw the Latics take the lead three times as they battled against relegation playing adventurous football.
Latics took the lead after 50 seconds when Emile Heskey bundled the ball home following a Leighton Baines free kick, unfortunately the lead only lasted 2 minutes with Dimitar Berbatov seemingly walking through the entire Latics back line and slotting past John Filan for a super solo effort.
Latics regained the lead with one of the strikes of the season on 30 minutes, Leighton Baines was a full 30 yards out when the ball fell to him and he struck a typical Baines volley to give Robinson no chance in the Spurs goal and put the ball in the top left hand corner.
5 minutes later and we were all square again, this time Baines became the villain has he was adjudged to have shoved Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas and referee Graham Poll awarded a penalty, up stepped Robbie Keane and the scores were levelled at 2-2.
Latics took the lead for the third and final time on 60 minutes when Kevin Kilbane scored his first goal for the club with a thundering header from a Ryan Taylor corner, 3-2 Latics
We had to wait 8 minutes for the Spurs equaliser when the ever alert Keane saw Latics keeper Filan way off his line, before you could say a quarter of Uncle Joes please, Keane had chipped the ball over the Latics keeper and levelled once more at 3-3.
Right at the death Paul Scharner hit the under side of the bar with a 35 yard thunderbolt that would have won it for the Latics but we had to settle for a draw and a fantastic feast of entertaining attacking football from both sides
More of the same this weekend please.
For the record the sides were:
Latics - Filan, Boyce, Jackson (Skoko), DeZeeuw, Baines, McCulloch (Taylor), Landzaat, Scharner, Kilbane, Camara, Heskey (Folan)
Spurs - Robinson, Chimbonda, Dawson, Ifil, Rocha, Lennon (DeFoe), Jenas, Zokora, Tainio (Malbranque), Keane, Berbatov
