10 things I hope to see from Spurs this weekend


1) Not to be out fought
2) Not to be second to every second ball
3) Not to concede the first goal
4) Clinical finishing in front of goal from Roman and Jermain (why you laugh?)
5) If Bale is match fit, he should play a part in the game with Milan and full match fitness in mind
6) Leave Crouch on the bench till latter stages
7) Hutton at right-back ( go on 'arry, bite the bullet), with Gallas back in central defence, thus...
8) Composure across the back four
9) Do not underestimate ikcle fighting for their lives Wolves who have beaten up all the 'big boys' on their home turf
10) Avoidance of 'one of those days' delivered with three vital points to secure top four


Hardly moon on a stick territory.

1) We'll be outfought until we go a goal down, then we start to fight (usually).
2) Can't change a habit of a lifetime
3) See 1
4) There's more clinical finishing in the local crack house than there is in our front 2
5) Am 50/50 on this.... do we want to risk further aggravation?
6) If VdV is fit, then it's going to be Crouch up top
7) Agree
8) Would be nice to see again
9) Goes with 1 really
10) It would be nice to do what the "big boys" have failed to do this season.

11) Defoe to reduce offsides to the easily attainable less than one-hundred a game mark. In the near future. Hopefully. With a bit of luck. Possibly. Maybe. Probably not. Won't happen. No chance in hell. Why do we even try? ;)

I think vdV will be rested. Get the feeling that if he plays he'll only play for say 60 mins, so if he's not going to be in it 100% I wouldn't play him at all.

You've inspired me. I'm going to follow this up with a '10 things you'll likely to see from Spurs this weekend'.

12) anyone know when we are likely to see Kaboul in a spurs shirt again - I would have him at rigth back any day of the week over Hutton

Ugh. I just don't like Hutton at RB, as he interferes too much with Lennon.


Mar 3, 2011 at 12:21 PM | Unregistered CommenterKayBee

I agree, Hutton is awful at defending but Gallas in defence rather than RB is far more important.

1. Defoe on the bench
2. Defoe on the bench
3. Defoe on the bench
4. Defoe on the bench
5. Defoe on the bench
6. Defoe on the bench
7. Defoe on the bench
8. Defoe on the bench

10. Defoe on the bench

13) Kranjcar starting a game in the VdV role behind Pav.

Mar 3, 2011 at 12:33 PM | Unregistered CommenterRamsesV

1. If VdV isn't fit, Pav and Niko up front.
2. Gallas at CH even if it means Wilson/Jenas at RB.
3. Patience. We will bombard their goal but don't get gung ho with it.
4. Would be happy with a draw based on last weeks result and last years record v Wolves, but we should have enough to win this surely?
5. Corn rows (this is more important than anything else).
