    So tomorrow we welcome our old friends Chelsea to Wembley for the evening kick off.

    Kane and co fresh back from the Nation's group 4a cup winners trophy league or something as equally irrelevant as that...

    3rd plays 4th with Chelsea unbeaten so far sitting 1 point above us and our 'bestest ever start ever'

    Rumours that Jan is back in training is welcome not sure if he'll feature though and with Sanchez apparently ruled out it's time for Foyth again to build some momentum and start making a regular claim for a 1st team start.

    Hopefully Gazzaniga has done enough now to shoe horn Hugo Liability out, but with Lloris being Pochs golden mute captain that may be difficult.



    Now it's Chelsea that irritating task that you know from the off is going to be a pig to nagate despite how well you play and what you do but if we are to keep amongst the pack then we cannot afford to lose here.

    A loss to this lot to add to City & Liverpool would signal this team are still not ready for the big time and big clashes. Every player needs to be on their game, we need to start pressing teams again and stop conceding sloppy goals especially if we are to get something from this game.

    With Scum up afterwards the last thing we want is to get their tails up by having a wobble Vs Chavs.

    I think it will be a 2-2 with us rescuing a point , but of course wouldn't it be nice to end their little run and spank them 4-0....
    We live in hope

    I don't know whether the apathy that seems to have engulfed most Spurs sites is due purely to the mind-numbing international breaks that the powers that be insist on foisting on us, or whether it's symptomatic of something deeper; a combination of Wembley weariness and realisation that the young team of three or four years ago might already have peaked, and competition for 'best of the rest' beckons. The next three games should provide a clue as to whether it's onwards and upwards, or back to the EL, and I haven't got the slightest idea what to expect - last minute winners from Sissoko and penalty saves from Lloris perhaps?

    Probably get beat. If not could sneak a win or a draw but the football will be dire so don't matter either way and the best ever start unfortunately may continue.

    Oh ye of little faith!

    We will win in style - and this will kickstart the season. When Foyth scored his goal , it was the first time had seen the team react like a team as they used to do- that was the catalyst for our season to start moving

    So I will either be Nostradamus or At least this comment will give you all something to quote and ridicule :)

    With Dele, Eriksen and a few other injured players back....I am confident we'll give Chelsea a tough test. Their defense can be unlocked; especially on the left side...Moura or Son's pace on the left should target Alonso & Luiz.

    We'll need to neutralize Jorginho, he's the biggest threat...if we let him control the tempo of the game; it will be a tough afternoon.

    Think we'll edge them today! 2-1 Tottenham COYS!

    Embarrassing to be a spurs fan watching this. Free header for the first goal, poor keeping the second poor defence the third. Missed chance after chance. Negative tactics our no 10 man marking their key playmaker. The best ever run continues ..

    That's more like it, that's the best performance we've put in as a team over the 90minutes in a long while.
    That's the level we should be setting played Spurs.
    Same again Vs Scum please

    Great win And what a revelation Sissoko is at the moment .Whatever poch has said to him seems to have at last registered.I like moura but have thought he takes something away fromKanes game and today he was much more mobile.best result this season let's hope we carry this forward for Milan and the scum

    Ahh now , wasn't just injuries in fairness , we were struggling for lots of reasons and it was predicted by many before a ball was even kicked this season but thankfully we got away with it results wise up to now and if we can pull our socks up from now on then there's no reason we can't at least replicate what we've been doing over the last few years . But isn't that also a large part of the frustration by so many , a bit of proper investment in this squad could have created something really special . It wouldn't have guaranteed anything but surely everybody could see how close we were . You have to try at least . We all know funds are tight with the new stadium but we can't be pennyless either , theres never been more money in the game then right now and it wasn't till a gun was put to our head that we started competing with feckin mid table clubs when it comes to paying wages . Look nobody can predict the future so lets see how it all turns out but if we let this base for something really special slip through our fingers then it would be one of the great **** ups ( in football terms of course ) , regardless of the new stadium which I appreciate is also necessary for the club moving forward ....

    Really good show from us this eve , but like I said we all know by now what we're capable of when we're fit and firing .. Some excellent performances out there but I'm only going to mention one who I like most have not been complimentary of up to this point in his Spurs career and that's Sissoko , he's been excellent more often then not lately while most around him have been struggling for whatever reasons .. Not the most talented footballer by any means but he's a beast of a specimen and that along with the form he's in at the moment makes him well worth his place in this side . Long may it continue , now I'm off to eat some pie ..... C.O.Y.S ....

    Well what a game to give the kids the seats and what a performance. To a man they played out of their skin. Tactically superior, committed, pressing. Okay it should have been 6, but it was so good to watch the highlights on MOTD (twice) stuffed full of top quality, high pressing football.

    This, for me, was our best performance for two seasons with HK and Sissoko outstanding. Sonny's goal was to be savoured - already a candidate for GOTS.

    Do you know I didn't even celebrate with a drink..... perhaps later!!

    Sarcasm it may be, but it's a fair description of the facts of the game (apart from the stonewall penalty Chelsea were denied at 1-0). Still, if Chelsea have derailed and Arsenal can be seen-off next weekend, perhaps top four isn't going to be such a tough ask as I expected (though getting through our CL group really will be an achievement). Got to finish on a negative note, obviously.

    Wonderful victory!!
    Here are my grades:
    Lloris - 7 one of his better games
    Davies - 6 solid, yet unremarkable
    Aurier - 8 that's what he was acquired for, Walker-like performance
    Toby - 8 just sign and keep that cornerstone
    Foyth - 5 almost another penalty, missed Giroux cover, yet solid otherwise
    Sissoco - 9 nothing to add, just marvelous
    Dier - 7 better than usual
    Eriksen - 8 back to usual greatness
    Dele - 8 just eliminated Jorginho, scored.
    Son -10 best ever in lilywhite performance
    Kane - 9 nothing to add, SUPER
    MP -10 his surprising 4-4-2 scheme did work!!

    Sissoco had a Demebele type performance. Hard to imagine that Poch was able to convert the so-so wide MF into holding MF that currently as good as anyone in the League at the position. Well, he previously converted a slow CB Dier into top performer at holding MF.
    I don't disagree with 4-1-3-2 you suggested. 1-3 in MF is known as Diamond, so it could be either (4 or 1-3). A silky diamond that was...

    Called it!!!! Sorry for quoting myself, I got a big head! Hell of a game, the boys put in a shift. Eriksen was class, great of have Dele back in the team, Son was great but needs to be more clinical. Midfield did a great job, Sissoko keeps improving, we know what to expect from Dier and Kane....Poch really masterminded this performance, very impressive!!

    Called it!!
