Very happy about that starting 11, and Alli finally beside Dier in the midfield. Credit to Poch for putting him there in a home game vs. Swansea. COYS!

It was pretty amazing being right in the middle of that. On the one hand, half of the crowd was half-paying-attention to the match. On the other hand, I'm sure our players loved the constant roar for what must have been about 10 minutes.

Was in the shelf myself! Amazing, I started losing my voice.

I chimed in a bit myself, but I had to sing the next day, so I couldn't just belt it out regardless :-(
It was the usual good-humoured "we're Park Lane, we're Park Lane, we're Park Lane Tottenham", then "we're Shelf side, we're Shelf side, we're Shelf side Tottenham" back-and-forth, it's just that it was nearly everyone doing it and it felt like it went on for ages.
I was in the shelf in the lower tier and it was amazing. It went on and on and was like a wall of noise!

I don't go often so it was great to be a part of it all!

I can't wait to go again! Getting my ticket for Dortmund in the morning so won't be long to wait!

Reading Sigurdsons comments in the paper today he really seems to want to prove a point and is really up for it. To many times ex players come back and score against us.I worry about this game more than I do against the top sides I just hope it's not another Newcastle game. We should win it but then when Newcastle beat us they were on a long losing run and were there for the taking and we didn't take it and Swansea are a better side and at the beggining of the season were playing well so it's not going to be easy.
I don't think there will be many goals if any 1- 0 or 0-0.
They will come out a lot more than Newcastle did. It's one of the main reasons we have such a good record against them, they always try to outplay us and never can.

A little concerned with our possession, transitional play, showing for the ball and quick forward passes in the middle of the park with Dier/Alli- shame Mason isn't ready for another match in quick succession. But an attacking line up, let's do this. Coys.

Really fancy us against that Swansea team. Don't think they've got the pace to hurt us on the counter. They'll come out and play as well which suits us perfectly.

Buzzing over this line-up. I've been calling out for months that Poch go back to Son/Eriksen/Lamela in the three up front. We smashed City starting those three together, and I don't think they've started a league game all at once ever since. Our pressing will be excellent today, that I'm sure of.
