      Surely the champions are going to show some balls and win a game at some point

      I am sure hendo playing in midfield is huge for us

      In our current situation against a top4 contender on the road? Yes.

      Nonsense, you never ever play for a draw, its a very dangerous tactic, especially with a makeshift defence.

      The best tactic for us in every game is to attack and simply score more goals than we concede.


      As for this game we will win, I am fairly confident of it, especially if we can start Matip with Fabinho in defence and have Thiago, Hendo and Gini in midfield with a hopefully rejuvenated front three and Trent regaining some form.

      I saw more than enough against Manure to suggest we have turned the corner.

      Seem to have the edge over Spurs lately, hopefully the trend continues on Thursday night. Good news if Henderson is back, hopefully we can start to turn things around, the sooner the better !

      Ditto,if we have 1 shot on target (or none with an own goal)with 25% possession and don't play well and win 1-0,i don't really care, we have to start winning,anyway anyhow.COYR

      Massive game. 5th v 6th if they win they jump over us and still have a game in hand on us.

      Ive said or a while now that top 6 v each other will be vital. Weve been strong in thst mini league so far, well need to keep that up...not sure if its must win but its 100% must not lose

      Unfortunately whether it’s actually must win or not, it sure feels like it is so the pressure will be the same. Boys have to perform. If they come out and lay an egg I fear for the moaning and drivel that we will have to endure......

      This one is massive for me.

      If we go there and win we've made a massive statement.

      If we go there and lose we'll have all the other teams around us licking their lips at playing us.

      I fear for this game. United looked very dangerous when they countered us. Spurs are a better counter attacking team than scum.

      I think Harry Kane decides this game for Spurs. He'll drop in to that area where we have no DM. I think Hendo will need to start in midfield to limit Kane's impact.

      I'm dreading Son vs Trent. He will need to to really up his recent performance levels. Is he able to?

      For me, this is a must must win. We can't afford to slip and go 9 behind united. That's too much to catch and it would mean finding City like form which, with no new CB, just doesn't seem realistic

      I think it is kind of strange that we're favourites for this game considering our form, but hopefully the bookies have got it right 😄
      I can't see past a draw myself, but It would send a message if we got a good win. Mane is due another goal, fingers crossed for a vital 3 points.

      I can’t take another draw, would rather lose with a bit of fighting spirit (high scoring game) than another 0-0 / 1-1

      I can see your thinking but against Son and Kane we need as strong a defence as possible and with Thiago and Shaq in midfield it should be plenty of creativity anyway.

      I would rather we play Hendo \ Gini \ Fab in midfield and Matip \ Phillips at the back

      Just focus on what won us the league by 18 f**king points.

      Not sure Phillips contributed to winning the league or maybe you refer to our strong defence which again would not contain Philips I am afraid Fab is at CB for the long haul

      To be fair to the lad Im sure he was making the point of getting our main trio in midfield from the last 2 seasons

      It would be suicidal to play Nat or Rhys against Son and Kane, in any case Nat is clearly behind Rhys at the moment although I have no idea why.

      Yes I was making the point that rather than us worrying about the opposition with using our best players who drive us on and protect the defence Fab / hendo - let’s get on the front foot

      3 points out of 15 surely warrants a little thinking on what needs to change
      It goes without saying that Jürgen is the best manager we have had in years so I am sure he will get it right he usually does

      Would swap Hendo for Thiago, getting Thiago farther forward.

      I expect Gini to be in the team as well, not Shaq.

      Not an easy place to go. But looking at the league table we can’t start to lose ground on 4th place.
