Gus Poyet saw it as an incredible game of football. Some of us felt it was an incredible escape! But let the boss speak before we do …
It was an incredible game of football and it was a magnificent start for the fans, although I’m not sure it was the same for us in the dug-out.
It was a key moment when Adam Johnson equalised straight away after the Spurs goal, because if it was 1-0 for a long time it would have been a totally different game.
I think it was exciting to watch and I thought Spurs were very good today. They have quality around the park – power, speed and technical ability.
They made it very difficult for us but we are a proper team and we try hard – we always go on and try to get something from the game.
The most important part today was that we fought back and got a point which is very good for us.
You need to put yourself in there and apply pressure to get something from the game, we conceded one unfortunate goal but we got back into the game in a similar way.
I am really pleased with the team and really pleased to see us take something from the game; we fought back and found solutions today.
There are situations during the game when you can help the team but it is up to the players and today it is important to realise how the players feel, how they made decisions and how they took that control.
We tried our best and that is who we are, I do not think every game is going to be like this one but I am sure it will bring plenty of positives and good things for the future.
The idea now is to rest because I can tell you there are a few very heavy legs in there and we need to prepare 100% for the next game.
Thanks for your support,
