7.45 kick off, not 2.45

New manager bounce and all, we should have way too much even without Harry, hopefully he's OK to start though.

3-0 Spurs. Kane brace and Dele.

We need to win the next three games and hope that Liverpool does not win against Man City, then we would have over taken them for 4th place. If we play with the attitude has have done for the last two games we should win but it will not be an easy ride.

The Alan Rickman guide to Swansea - Spurs


Is this a must win? Truly

Who's the referee? Madley

How will Swansea defend? Deeply


What will half the crowd be called? Dai

Will it be easy or difficult? Hard


Who'll get the winner? Harry

Which will please my Stoke-supporting friend, who's a? Potter


Is this starting to get ridiculously difficult to string out any further and should I stop now? Yes

It was about 2 years ago when Eriksen won [correction, drew] us a difficult away match there with 2 brilliant direct free kicks. At that time, he was being tagged as the best free-kick goalscorer since David Beckham.

He has not scored from another free kick since then. It's difficult to work out why. He gets them on target often enough. They get saved. What he has has lost is the ability to put it in the top corners. It's really difficult to tell whether this is a confidence issue for Eriksen or just pure chance.

The big question for me (because he's my fantasy footy captain) is; is Kane fit to play tonight?

Isn't it going to be raining for Swansea as well then?
Realise you’re joking. But poor conditions generally favour the lesser team as will most likely make it a scrappy game. And much more likely to see mistakes you otherwise wouldn’t. A Lloris flappy blunder is almost nailed on.:eek:

On the flip side, someone with Kane's ability to drill shots off the surface can really profit from a wet pitch.

Speaking of which, I can't recall a striker in my lifetime* who's bettered the 'worm-burner' technique that Kane absolutely loves.
