I doubt Huddersfield will park the bus, they have played good passing football up until now. They actually try and play football and not just hoof it. They are a good drilled team and likes to press high as a team, but are also good at just keeping the ball between them. They are very similar to us in playing style, we just have superior players.

I think it’s a good matchup for us. We should be patient though because Huddersfield really seems to struggle the last 15-20 minutes. I have seen them a lot this year and they can dominate games early and then completely run out of gas.

Just settling down for another 2hrs of the 'Can Spurs keep hold of Kane' show.
Hoping to break the 6min barrier before I turn off the commentary this week but I'm not confident.

Their priority is to not concede, though.

Too late, already discussing it on soccer Saturday I'm sure the commentary team will catch up soon !

Lol Redknapp and Neville talking about Tom Ince like he's some up and coming hot prospect, he's 25 now.

Such a simple way of thinking. Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Davies all play further forward than they would in a back 4. This isn't a more defensive formation at all.
They're not going to create anything for a deep lying team though are they? Trippier maybe. I'd rather see more goal scorers and creative players on the pitch against teams that park the bus
5 at the back passing sideways on the half way line doesn't get you goals.
That said we are better all over the pitch so should really be winning this no matter what formation or selection.
I just hope if its glaringly obvious we're struggling to break them down Poch changes it early.
Could be a stinker or win 6.0 Early goal please Spurs.

They won't change, this team could surprise us. I have watched them a few times and they are no fools at this game.
