Spurs write another chapter

Rafael van der Vaart swung a free kick into the box, Younes Kaboul flicked the ball into the corner of the goal with his head, and suddenly TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR had written another chapter in the storied NORTH LONDON DERBY by coming from two goals behind to win, 3-2, at ARSENAL.
I watched today's game on TV, hours before I head to work. If I have to work on a Saturday, at least I could watch an intriguing football match, too.

The Gunners opened the scoring with Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh getting first-half goals.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp made some half-time adjustments, including bringing on Jermain Defoe for Aaron Lennon, and Tottenham genuinely seemed like a changed team in the second half.

Gareth Bale and van der Vaart (with a penalty) scored the goals to get Spurs back in the game and set the stage for Kaboul's late heroics.

It was the type of spectacle that keeps me coming back to this wonderful sport.
