Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. COYS – Its gonna be a tight one, my mates a Villa fan and even he admits that we played Villa off the park in the away fixture, but as all Spurs fans know, we have a knack of buckling under pressure, Man City Lost today, so if we win, we eat up one of those games in hand they have, not to mention the fact the Liverpool also won and are im forth for the time-being, it would be such a shame for Spurs to be int he top 4 for the majority of the season , just to slip by the way side at the end, i think keeping Thud playing well is a key as he bulks up the midfield and makes it hard for teams to attack quickly. Also Palacios is being to regain some form , togwether with Bale and Bently turning up the heat, this should be a cracking game, let just hope Defoe doesn’t need 5 chances before he can put one away, cus unlike leeds , i dont think Villa will be giving that many chances away , willy nilly
    COYS – Spurs to win 2-1

  2. King ahead of Bassong? Not too confident with that. I guess Crouch has to start since there is no Pav. Gud will be a great sub to bring on.

  3. Don’t understand why King instead of Bassong. Surely a settled back four would be beneficial to us. King could make a great impact sub. Hate to say it as I think he’s a Spurs legend but maybe it’s time to retire Deadly King and offer him a mentor coaching role instead as the high wages could be saved and spent elsewhere. Anyway put this one to bed in the first half please lads. COYS.

  4. ouch…this draw has hurt..IMO porr team selection and tactics form Arry..they were trying very hard but in the wrong ways.
    most spurs fans can see we need Niko to come on and i would like to have seen Ice Man too..looked very cool chewing his gum on the bench..

  5. another 2 points dropped at home!!!!!

    0-1 against stoke after battering them 1point
    0-1 against wolves cant break down defence 1point
    0-0 against hull cant break down defnce 2 points
    now against villa!!
    not to mension 2 points dropped last week to brum in the 91st min, and 2 points dropped away to everton sqwandering a 2-0 lead and missing a 94th min penalty so thats …. 10 points dropped, i was confident of us finishing 4th at end of the season but, i think 5th is more realistic, id be happy with 5th and fa cup win.i just hope liverpool dont get 4th

    am impressed by bentleys form of late, and bale, thought redknapp should of thrown on gudjohnson in last 15 today for maybe huddlestone

    o well on to wolves again on wednesday COYS!!!!!!
