      Jose playing the mind games I see!

      If Spurs revert to type and play on the backfoot I'd be tempted to see if we could get Fabinho into the midfield but obviously that can only happen if Matip is fit. Fab in the middle would hopefully disrupt Kane dropping deep and building the Spurs counter attacks.

      Big thing is needing the front three to click back into gear. Can't remember the last time they played well together and caused havoc to be honest - we've currently been relying on them individually and that's going to make breaking Spurs down very difficult.

      Midfield has to be Hendo, Gini and Curtis.

      Don't think any of them were covered in glory at the weekend. But an obvious lack of alternatives.

      Sure, but he won't be picking just based on the last match. This three have done rather well for us this season, and previously at least with Gini and Hendo. With Fab needed in the back, it's our best three.

      I see Naby is back in training, but I wouldn't expect him to start.

      To be honest, anything he gives us now, for me, is a bonus. Just hasn't worked out.

      I’d be very tempted to have Fab in front of the back 4 for this, although we do not man mark I would have him on Kane all night long, if Matip is fit I’d  have him and Phillips as CB’s, Trent and Robbo providing the width to spread the play and by pass Sissoko & Holjberg, Hendo & Gini doing the donkey work in the middle, and the usual three amigos up top providing the goodies,

      It all depends on Matip, if he’s oot, I’d play Fab & Phillips, with Hendo, Gini & Jones in front instead, for me this is a crucial game, a win would give us top spot on our own and a platform to build another unassailable lead, lose then we just carry on and build the pressure as time goes on, see if the Spudettes can handle the pressure, ultimately they will crack, I reckon there’ll be lots of bumps in the road before May, but I still make us favourites despite the injury list, where we are after the Xmas madness will be telling for sure.

                                                                          Bobby

      Another game where we miss out on Thiago, he would be perfect for this fixture, alas, we will just need to win it without him, and win it we will.

      Expect Kane to be a weakling tomorrow. Fall down at the close proximity. Matip and Fab have to be careful.

      Worse than that is his new cynical backing into airborne players and falling over to win free kicks and penalties.

      On the flip side sending the opposition player who's none the wiser as they are looking at the ball into some very dangerous scenarios.

      Will break someone's neck doint it soon enough if hes allowed to continue with it.

      Thought Jones did alright second half lets not forget he is playing more than we originally thought carried the ball better than Gini thats for sure and could of easily have scored winner with a bit more luck

      Was gutted that late solo effort didn't go in. Would have been an almost a carbon copy of Gerrard's first goal against Sheffield Wednesday in 1999!

      How the hell is that a foul for Kane, he is the one backing into the other player, he's even looking at them? I agree it's extremely dangerous.

      He's a very similar player to Stevie G, he's getting more and more confident as well.

      If harry kane back in to any of our players like that I hope they land him with an accidental elbow as they crash to the ground.
      He could seriously injure someone but once again all good ol’ Harry cares about is Kane FC.

      I actually can’t stand him.

      Just had some sort of premonition. Sat here minding my own business when I got a mental message from somewhere.
      We are gonna press and Spuds will sit deep.
      We will get a breakthrough and score mid first half.
      They will have a bit more of a go at us second half and we will pick them off and score again. 2:0 to the reds. Have just changed my prediction to suit 😊

      He’ll continue getting away with it. He seems to be league’s poster boy and has a free pass in everything. If they have doubts who to credit goals to, it’s Kane. Own goal or Kane? Kane for sure.

      This game comes down to how Mane and Bobby perform. If they go missing we draw. If just one of them falls into forum we win by 2 goals. We will have a lot of the ball tomorrow. Gotta make it count.

      Tough game against the Spuds tonight, I feel Son is a dangerous player for them upfront, he seems always likely to score, although Kane obviously another dangerman. A very tough game tonight at home and we need to defend well. I think Curtis Jones should be in the starting line up, showing improvement all the time. I think Mane is due a goal feeling it will be a draw, although being bias going for 2  1 for the champions.

      Liking the optimism but gone for a tight 3-2 win for us possibly with Kane, Son, Mo, Sadio & Bobby all scoring, that said was it Maureen in charge of the chavs when we stopped their unbeaten home run, and does anyone think he may get revenge tonight? :couch:
