    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.

    Swansea is the nearest PL venue to me. A mere 156 miles away.

    Still too far. Yuck.

    A lot of it's water though. Grab an old door, some barrels and float across overnight.

    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.

    Didn't we draw that game? I remember it being so frustrating as we fucked up about 5 other clear chances to win the game.

    About the same distance West Ham fans are from their pitch at the taxpayers stadium.

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

    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.
