    Foyth could be pivotal here. it's quite a leap of faith in him and good on him - hopefully he plays to his best. I also think Trippier, Rose and Llorente could play a key role in the outcome eventually.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Borussia Dortmund - Match Thread

    It'll be interesting to see how our personnel handle this formation. I fear we'll be drawing them on us a lot and I'm not sure if Aurier and Vertonghen are good enough wing backs at this level. It also seems like we'll try to spring attacks with long passes rather than use wing backs to cross...

    Team vs Dortmund

    We're a little defeatist on here regarding Dortmund, which should be tempered a bit by their recent displays. They looked slick at the weekend before crumbling in the 2nd half. They've played 21 and have a 15-5-1 record in the Bundesliga. We've won 20 from 26, so not exactly also-rans. It...

    Nah. We're good at purposeful possession, playing from the back or mixing it up when it's level or we're chasing the game. It's the crap return of AVB-ball when we try it as a "control" tactic, nearly always failing to keep goals out. We can play safely, and in control, without resorting to...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Leicester

    Lloris made the key match winning contributions, so he was MOTM. But Winks is a gem of a player and a key player for us now. Skipp and Llorente were quite poor, so it was hard to dominate when they were off the pace and Oliver being anti-Spurs. But the problems of our own making were many...

    Great result. One of the least deserved wins I've watched us have in recent times. Complacency all over the place. Our "game control' mode of pointless possession is so outdated an approach is beggars belief that we still adopt it. And fair dues to Son for keeping going because he's been off...

    Burnley have bounced back well. Shame for us we have them at their place soon.

    Team v Leicester

    Lloris Trippier - Alderweireld - Vertonghen - Rose Sissoko - Winks Moura - Eriksen - Son Llorente Better to occupy their center-halves with a fighter, allowing Son and Moura to glide in around them. An early goal would be great for a change, because that'll ruin their game plan. Sissoko, Winks...

    Race for the Top 4 - 2018/19

    After two really good weeks where we gained 4pts on Liverpool, the next 4 matches for both clubs are a decent test of both sides' credentials. Spurs - Leicester (H), Burnley (A), Chelsea (A), Arsenal (H) Pool - B'mouth (H), Man Utd (A), Watford (H), Everton (A) Liverpool should welcome the...

    Premier League 2018/19

    It's been a smashing couple of weeks for us. Ideally, we'll finish the season without a draw, and Liverpool will only draw (and lose to us) from here on out.

    Fair dues to West Ham for making a game of it. That lino must have shares in VAR or something. Awful non-call. But this is no cake walk so far.

    Brilliant result. The stress test is on, and even a bit of a mind fuck for the others that we seem to power through frustration to find a winner late in games. Now Liverpool can look down with exasperation that we're close. Arsenal can look up with desperation that were so far ahead. And City...

    We're doing well, but need to shoot more. They're fine playing deep and centrally, and we're not going to walk it in. So son, Eriksson and winks needs to shoot from 20 yards to give newcastle more reason to step out another 5 yds

    Match Threads Spurs vs Newcastle - Match Thread

    The fixture schedule has given us a lovely chance to apply a stress test to those around us. Liverpool will wonder how an unreal haul of points has them just 4 points ahead of us. It would fuck with anyone's minds to stew on that for a couple of days, and we've had 6 losses to boot. It fucks...

    We're still in the title race, bedwetters. Credit to the lads for perseverance. And credit to some of the Premier leagues lesser lights for not rolling over to the big teams.
