Why is Everyone Moaning about the MOTD Editing?

After a long international break there's always that extra buzz of excitement at the return of club football. This is especially true for us Spurs fans who are still basking in that performance against Manchester City nearly two weeks ago. Of course being Spurs fans we did find something to moan about.

Many Tottenham supporters felt like they watched two completely different versions of the game on Sunday. The first was live on Sky Sports at 2:15pm and was a convincing dominant performance by Spurs. The second, edited highlights on BBC's Match of the Day 2 at 10:30pm, was an even game that Spurs just shaded 2-0.

I don't think for a minute that the BBC have an anti-Spurs agenda, but you can't help feeling disappointed when your team aren't given the credit you feel they deserve.

The rest of the football media didn't see the game through the same blue-tinted glasses, and in the eyes of most football writers Spurs are now title contenders. Mauricio Pochettino played down such speculation, dismissing it as premature at this stage of the season, and I have to say I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if any one of the current top seven were to win the league, nor would I be surprised if any of them, including Manchester City, finish outside the top four. My tip for the title is Arsenal, who seem to be quietly going on with their business, while the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and now Spurs grab the headlines.
