As a former Spurs player you can doubt there won`t be a happier bloke than Joe Kinnear after his new club sunk his former club. Speaking to the press, Joe Kinnear said:
'I'm looking upwards now - and if I could guarantee my players would stay fit, I would be looking up all the time. I'm very proud of our record. I have a good relationship with the players, which I hope continues and I'm getting the best out of them.
I remember when I came in, I was told it was for six weeks and that's probably the reason why other people turned it down. I would have come for six days but what has happened in the financial world has changed things in my favour and the fact the club is not sold means I carry on. I knew the terms from day one and I'm glad I did. I have nothing to lose.
It makes a change to be honest because we've had similar experiences go against us, so for once I'm pleased it's gone our way. I think we've gradually improved and got better as a unit. There's more harmony within the club and more confidence for sure.
We just stuck at it today and there wasn't too much between the two sides. Tottenham are a decent side and it was always going to be one of those games where the next goal was going to be the winner. Thankfully the substitution came off. We soldiered on and the people that came off the bench for me have done exceptionally well. All in all, the whole team have responded to everything I've asked of them.
Pavlyuchenko was definitely offside and I think most of our back four put their hands up for him - then we were too late to react and Modric shot through. I don't think Modric was offside but Pavlyuchenko was. It's that old chestnut of whether he was interfering with play of not. I'm just thankful it didn't cost us in the end."
