I'll leave the final word to John Oliver, who writes: "Terrible tactics by a terrible manager. Too be needing points to stay up and not have a shot on goal is beyond embarrassing."
It's all over and Tottenham have claimed a comfortable 2-0 victory over struggling Blackburn at White Hart Lane to move back into the top four as they keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. By contrast, Rovers remain three points behind fourth-bottom QPR following this dour defensive performance while they failed to even register a single shot at goal.
Van der Vaart applauds the fans as he's taken off to be replaced by Jermain Defoe.
Sandro now leaves the field to a standing ovation as he's replaced by Jake Livermore.
Blackburn also make a switch with David Dunn being replaced by David Goodwillie.
Spurs make a change with Giovani Dos Santos coming on to replace Lennon.
GOAL WALKER - Unbelievable! Walker shows exactly why he was named the PFA's Young Player of the Year as he curls a superb free kick over the wall and into the top corner.
Yakubu, who has hardly touched the ball today, is replaced by Anthony Modeste.
Simon Blake writes: "Why won't Bale play on the left? Rose can't cross so without Bale in front of him, Spurs have nothing down that wing."
Rob Whittle writes: "After this performance we don't deserve to stay up, hopeless tactics from a hopeless manager! He has to go end of the season."
Sky Bet now make Tottenham 1/12 to win this clash while Blackburn are priced at 25/1, with the draw available at 8/1. Head now to www.skybet.com to place your in-running bets.
The half-time whistle sounds and Tottenham go into the break leading Blackburn 1-0 but it really should be more.
GOAL VAN DER VAART - After Bale's header from a cross on the right wing hits the bar after Dann's intervention, van der Vaart is there to poke the ball home from close range despite Dann's best efforts to claim he stopped it from crossing the line. A scrappy goal from the hosts but richly deserved after all their early pressure.
Nervous Spurs fan Tank says he often has to rely on us to let him know what's happening since moving to Canada and adds: "Having to just read the updates is torture sometimes! It's been a season of both great & dismal performances for us this year. I really hope we can string together the perfect finish and grab fourth at least. 3-0 Spurs, Ade to grab 2, VDV to get the 3rd."
Sam Swann writes: "I think this has been a high scoring weekend like last season when Newcastle drew 4-4 with Arsenal and Wigan beat Blackburn 4-3." I think the general consensus is that more goals are on the cards today!
Dave says: "With Spurs recent defeats, they will be hoping to get back into fourth even if its just in goal difference. My prediction, Spurs to win 2-1."
Lee Miller writes: "I fear for Spurs' Champions League ambitions. I think Bale and Modric are on their way out this summer and that will further affect the dynamic of the team. Blackburn are fighting for their life and I predict a 3-2 win for Rovers."
Charlie Richardson writes: "Keeping with the high scoring results at the weekend so far, I see at least six goals in this game, going for a 4-2 win for Spurs. Walker v Hoilett, going to be a quality battle today!"
Andy Peters from Lancashire: "Really hope Tom Bean is right with his shock prediction. We really need a win from somewhere today. Should have played vuckevic though."
Richard Wells is predicting a 3-0 win for Spurs while James Pinnegar agrees as he writes: "Let's hope Spurs wingers play on the wings today, not in the middle as they played QPR. If they do with Ade up front could be a big win we need it. I reckon 3-0."
Michael Sparks from Kent says: "Big Spurs fan hoping that we can really turn our season around today and get back to forth. I predict 4-1 with goals from VDV, Nordic and a Bale Double COYS!"
Tom Bean from Bath writes: "I think there's goin to be a upset with a 2-1 away win for the mighty Blackburn!"
Sky Bet make Spurs 1/3 favourites to claim a much-needed victory today while Blackburn are priced up at 7/1, with the draw available at 17/4. Sky Bet's priceboosts include 9/1 on Spurs to win 3-0, Rafael van der Vaart to score first at 5/1 and 25/1 for Blackburn to win 2-1. Junior Hoilett is a tempting 10/1 to score the game's first goal.
