The second half was better than the first, but we looked second best throughout.
I tend to agree, season over.

Agreed with this. Spurs worth their victory.

Bad team selection at the start cost us this game

Really? How? Donovan was half the player Anichebe was when he came on and Jags wasn't ready to start a full game.

I didn't see most of the game but was happy to see Moyes drop some of the slackers from the Lisbon game.

Disagree, after we scored we forced 2 great saves and Donovan missed an empty net, Spurs did nothing of note. A draw would have been a fair result but we easily could have won.

Spurs didn't need to press as much second half and looked keen to allow us to steal a point like at Goodison. Considering the sporting game midweek, not overly surprised with the team selection and slow start, albeit disappointing. Spurs deserve credit for the first half performance, Modric and Bale especially.

Couldn't believe Donovan's miss, but haven't seen much criticism in comparison to the defensive errors. Missed opportunity, but we just need to focus on beating Hull and having a good run in from there on.

Disappointing, especially the first half.

Got to look forward now. Over a week off for the players to get their minds back into gear and get rested. We must beat Hull.

Agreed.  Just a shame it was Donovan and not Yak who had that chance.  Must be a contender for miss of the season that, but I wasn't all that surprised by it - lets face it, decent player though he is, Dougal isn't the sharpest when presented with a ball in the box.

Mate, these are premiership footballers, missing a 24 foot target from 3 feet away must actually be quite difficult.

End of the day he didn't miss on purpose and is probably mortified.

I should hope not, and so he should be mortified.  What I was trying to say is that he's obviously not very confident/gifted when presented with the ball on a plate in the box - he's fluffed a couple of opportunities before Spurs while he's been here, and I hear he's missed many a sitter back home etc.

For example
