Those worried about Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang and how they played against us a few years ago need to put it into perspective. The teams we put out to play dortmund were rubbish.

Arsenal are getting gassed about them after they beat an awful Everton team. I hope they go all out attack and we just pick them off.

Been catching up on the gooners forums and they are all banging on about how it’s practically a home game for them. Their confidence is winding me up.
They’ll be in for a bit of a shock when they hear 80,000+ Spurs fans tomorrow, then. Atmosphere will rival the Madrid game. We’ll take the chances we missed against Utd, Pool and Newport.

Correct.

That was a rubbish side put out by Everton not bothering to turn up for a contest with Rooney, Siggy and Calvert Lewin on
the bench. They were keeping their powder dry.

Arsenal haven't kept a clean sheet for 8 PL games and got stuffed by Forest in their cup.

The debut goal by PEA was blatantly offside.

Bring it on.

I like the idea of playing them without that f***er Giroud's smug face leering at us. That's a face I have so wanted to rearrange over the last few years. ;)

I've hated this week. Pretty much tried to ignore all of the match build up because to bare the worst case scenario is too much. Fortunately I don't live in the UK anymore so I shouldn't have to put up with any nonsense should the worst happen.

THIS IS THE ONE WE NEED TO WIN!!

I must be the only one feeling confident. If we're as commited as the last two,we'll bully them. Dembele is back into the groove with a weeks rest behind him, we always look so much stronger when he's in boss mode.

Yes they carry a real attacking threat but fuck me that defense and lack of midfield protection is begging to be ripped apart.

Both sides can attack but we're much better equipped to defend well and scrap for the second ball.

Kane loves scoring against this lot and he will tomorrow.

3-1 Spurs, Kane brace and Dele.

4-2 spurs. First 15 minutes crucial to set tempo of match. Arsenal down to 10 boys 2nd half. Need this tomorrow guys. Being in Woolwich there are too many jumped up little oiks in red shirts that need shutting up.

I'm feeling 5-1

Makataryan injured early doors, the dude from red dwarf can't get anything going, due to us strangling them back into their last third for most of the game.

I’m going to the game tomorrow.

And I was at the Brent Civic Centre today (that conference shit-hole next to Wembley) for a work thing.

At lunch time I looked out over all those awful hotels, those manky offices and at that soulless arch that limps over the stadium; and I remembered when I last watched Spurs vs Arsenal at Wembley.

It was 1991 and I was 11 years old. Ah the twin towers; ah the magic of the cup; ah the romance of football.

I felt all old and sanctimonious and went back into the meeting all teary-eyed and nostalgia-ridden.

But I want you all to know: I didn’t cry.

My eldest son was born in March 1980. I also feel old. My first Spurs Wembley visit was 1973 aged 17

If Xhaka plays, just have Alli maneuver by him for the match. The guy spaces out every time a midfielder runs off him. He simply never tracks them, and that just happens to be Alli's specialty.
