Apparently Son broke his arm in the first minute. Just our luck he toughed it out for the last 93 minutes!

He could've at least had the decency to get subbed with 5 minutes left, Dele Alli would've probably fired against the North Stand exec boxes with that late chance the way he was finishing in the game.

We conceded goals with 4 at the back. We switched to 5 and it was widely accepted that we looking a better unit both offensively and defensively.

But were still conceding goals. So we set up to try and out score the opposition rather than defend and try to nick a goal that was widely derided (Steve Bruce says hello)

Smiths approach of trying to win the game based on us being defensively not great makes sense.  Had we took our chances in the first half wed of been 2/3 goals up and a different game.

In some ways, the best performance of the season -and we get nothing! IMHO, the goal from the corner came from a move where a Spuds player was marginally offside. I couldn't see anything the was 'Clear and Obvious' for the pen. We missed as many good chances as they did.
