Spurs 2 Southampton 1

We made it 10 consecutive Premier League home wins at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon as we held on to defeat Southampton in a hard-fought victory.

Christian Eriksen opened the scoring with an excellent goal on 14 minutes, striking a low left-foot shot past Fraser Forster from 20 yards, who was then beaten from the penalty spot by Dele Alli on 32 minutes, the England midfielder picking himself up to convert from 18 yards after being fouled by Steven Davis.

Southampton pulled one back six minutes into the second period when James Ward-Prowse found himself free at the back post and tucked home past Hugo Lloris.

After an entertaining first half, the second was much more attritional as we had to dig in against a determined Southampton fightback, with neither side really creating clear-cut chances. Substitute Vincent Janssen did test Forster in the 89th minute with a fierce drive and Sofiane Boufal drilled wide at the other end a minute later, but we held firm to make it 10 on the spin in N17 and cut Chelsea’s lead back to 10 points at the top of the Premier League table.

Chuck Berry dies this weekend age 90.When I was a kid and Bob Wilson’s Mammoth Fun Fair came to the Big Field in Shard End, I would hang around the Waltzers just listening to the LOUD music..and this was just one of my favourites.

No Particular Place To Go

Chuck Berry

Ridin’ along in my automobile
My baby beside me at the wheel
I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
My curiosity runnin’ wild
Cruisin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go.
Ridin’ along in my automobile
I’m anxious to tell her the way I feel,
So I told her softly and sincere,
And she leaned and whispered in my ear
Cuddlin’ more and drivin’ slow,
With no particular place to go.
No particular place to go,
So we parked way out on the Kokomo
The night was young and the moon was bold
So we both decided to take a stroll
Can you imagine the way I felt?
I couldn’t unfasten her safety belt!
Ridin’ along in my calaboose
Still tryin’ to get her belt unloose
All the way home I held a grudge,
But the safety belt, it wouldn’t budge
Cruisin’ and playin’ the radio
With no particular place to go.

Johnny B. Goode

Chuck Berry

Deep down Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like a ringing a bell
Go go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Johnny B. Goode
He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineerswould see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
People passing by they would stop and say
Oh my that little country boy could play
Go go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Go Johnny go
Go
Johnny B. Goode
His mother told him “Someday you will be a man,
And you will be the leader of a big old band.
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name will be in lights
Saying Johnny B. Goode tonight.”
Go go
Go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go go go Johnny go
Go
Johnny B. Goode
