Fan Preview: Spurs vs Blackburn

0

After the euphoria, disappointment and frustration of the last three games I wonder what Spurs have in store for us this weekend? Experiencing the whole gamut of emotions is part of the pleasure and pain of being a football fan but how much would we all welcome a boring & routine home win?

It’s Blackburn though and it’s Allardyce so the chances of the away team giving in without a struggle are slim to none. Rovers will have been buoyed by Wednesday night’s excellent result at Newcastle, the team two places above us in the table, so will see the target of repeating what Everton and Sunderland have done in recent weeks as well within their abilities.

Old boys Robbo and Chimbo are likely to make return appearances, the first more likely to be well received than the latter. They’ll be joined in defence by Nelsen and Samba, two key players for Rovers. Their midfield is characterised by hard workers and their attack by big lumps. (It’s Allardyce remember).

Andre Marriner is the latest ref to come in range of Harry’s radar, a man hopefully not in the Clattenwebb envelope.

Speculation has this week been rife as to who is going to boost the squad come the January transfer window but given that also this week we’ve announced a loss despite record revenues, it’s unlikely that Redknapp will be given much to spend without selling first.

At the moment though reducing the size of the squad won’t be desirable as our injuries mean that it’s this very same squad that’s keeping us hanging on by our Champions League gloved fingertips to a place near the top of the scrum in the middle of the table. These second string players have the talent to give us the three points that would give us such a lift before heading to Woolwich next weekend. Here’s to an injury and angst free ninety minutes. COYS.

  1. A tricky fixture, us to win 2-1. 451 formation of :
    Gomes, Hutton, Kaboul, Gallas, BAE, Kranjcar, Sandro (more likely Jenas) Modric, Bale, VDV, Crouch.
    I’m more interested in what ppl think about the January activity….
    Spurs Sales XI
                           Alnwick 
                             (1m)
    Smith.   Woody. Walker/      Naughton               
     (1m).     Free.   Hutton (2-4m) (2m)
                O’hara.         Jenas
                 (3m).           (6m)
    Bentley.                              Gio ???
       (7m).                               (4m)
                 Pav.          Keane
                (9m).           (7m)
    Total Sales = £42-44m
    Wages Saving = £450-500k per week
                       
    Buy one striker £25m, increase key players to 90k salary cap per week eg Modric VDV Bale etc 
    So, Save £17-19m on player sales straight away and at least £250k per week on wages eg £13m per year.  
    Total save of £30+m a year.
    A trimmed squad to key players to stay competitive and still get game time, plus also enough room in the squad to promote the kids Rose, Livermore etc
    **the players mentioned are debatable obviously eg hutton gio walker etc, but you get the point!

  2. I am sick of Rednapps comments about the spurs fans discontent. He should shut up about those who have been with the club all their lives, unlike him. He opened his big mouth about the England job so he can p off. He has one of the most talented teams in the premier league. They dont need a push to get them going in the champions league but his tactical skills are all to se in the league and he has had enough time to learn about the home game bus. He has not learnt and never will. Time to get rid i say.

  4. We are at the crossroads of the season and its only twelve Games in, we can keep on the shirt tales of fourth place City or spiral towards the treacherous road to relegation dog fight. This game is has big a game has the Inter Milan Game if not bigger because the vultures are circling over the Lane. They are waiting for the Window to open and start tempting our stars away from our great adventure New Training Complex New Ground and new History. We need to turn the Boos into cheers and turn the lane white hot with noise and make Blackburn players legs turn to jelly comone Mariner give us a pen and a win Coys
