Yeah I really would like to see us press them  and apply pressure from the get go and grab a goal early

Us scoring early would hurt their confidence, us scoring twice before half time will really deflate them. Hope Salah gets a first half hat trick.

He has a slight muscle sprain, although the tin foil hat brigade think otherwise.

I’d like to see us take a lead into half time. Start fast, maybe even two goals, and then our defence can stand strong. If they come looking too much we can pick them off again.

A reverse of last season’s result would be fantastic, any win very good, a draw acceptable, a loss disappointing.

We have a decent number of our first XI returning early, while quite a few others that have gone on international duty should be rested on Wednesday and/or are in the UK. As far as midday kickoffs after an Inty break go, it could be an OK build up for the squad.

Might be a case of let Spurs overextend in the first 15 and look to capitalise on mistakes.

What an opening post. Best I've ever read on this site, by some margin.

First of many tough tests over the coming weeks - hard to not look at the upcoming fixtures and feel both a sense of excitement and nerves. Test after test for our squad and manager, who knows how we're going to look come late October.

There's a lot to admire about Spurs and their model of success in recent years. Pochettino is a great manager and they've got some excellent players who know his system inside and out. Glad that we aren't the opening fixture for their new stadium, had a feeling that was going to be a boost for them. They're a good side and we owe them for last season - both that first humiliating loss and the undeserved draw at Anfield. Prediction is a narrow 2-1 victory for us but would still be very much content with a draw, unless it's in similar circumstances to the one at Anfield in February.

I just about get home in time for the 5.30s and if I'm lucky enough to not be too busy I can at least check the scores occasionally for the 3pms but the 12.30s are the nightmare ones agreed.

My late nights are Wednesdays till 7 so could just about make it home for the Champions League 7.45 games but now some of them are going to be at 6!  Wtfs that all about.


Those 6pms will be a nightmare as we work till 7 on Wednesdays too but as we're a barbers I stick on 5Live to keep up to date  :D
Customers keep saying we need a tv in the shop for match days but the majority would want spurs/west ham etc on.
Ears would be sliced off if we're on so not a good idea lol.
We've got to win Saturday or I'l be in for extreme banter for the next month.
Hopefully Kane is out by the looks of it.

Great OP btw.

Great time to play a big away game just after the internationals. Midday after the break against anyone is a potential banana skin so you might aswell play a top side away. Tottenhams high line should suit out front 3 aswell

Like to think there’s a real determination to put in a performance after last years game at Wembley. We’ve obviously come along way, particularly defensively, since that game and already proven we’re better than that, but I can see those who played in last seasons game wanting to show that in this game especially.

Hopefully that should give us an extra edge and we can keep up the winning run as we begin a much harder set of games than we’ve faced so far. I’d settle for a scrappy win, but think we’re gonna win scoring 2 or 3.

I just want our midfield to stand up and be counted for 90 minutes. Felt that the spurs and Chelsea centre mids really schooled us last season, much more than city’s who we successfully disrupted and utds who were essentially bypassed by their own defenders launching the fucker at every opportunity.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what our team can do now the engine rooms are more evenly matched.

Spurs performances this year haven't been all that great and it shows as Pochettino has been tinkering.  Much as we all like to think they have a settled squad and team the tactics Spurs have used for the first 4 games are way different than anything they've done before.  Essentially they're using two strikers with Kane and Moura being pared, somewhat of an old school little guy/big guy combo, while rotating between Dier and Dembele at the base of midfield in a super lopsided 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 where Trippier a lot of the time is solely responsible for the right hand side.  Trippier is not very good defensively.  A lot of this leaves open questions, does Poch see Lucas as a better striker than Kane?  Is Kane even really healthy?  Does moving Alli into midfield take away from what he does best?  Is Dembele basically washed up at this point?  Maybe Son's return will solve all of this.  I somewhat doubt it but it's a really interesting set of questions.

In my mind the worst case scenario should be a scoring draw.  Otherwise assuming Keita is starting then between him, Mane and Robertson we really should be able to get at them down our left side.  We should be able to keep them at bay defensively, they're nothing great going forward so far this year.  We should be able to win this one.

It's a bit of a nervous wait, really hoping all the boys come back fit and ready to fight.

I'd like to see us press at certian points in the game but I'm reluctant to have both FBs pushing up though as I'd like us to keep our backline strong. I think Gomez will be crucial in providing that pace needed to cover in case moura gets some open space.

Given that Spurs barely bought anyone this year, they have a well gelled squad and everyone knows what is expected of them. That sort of cohesion only comes with time and the advantages of a well drilled side cannot be underestimated.  At the very least, I expect them to be defensively solid and structured. We will do well to get a win here, irrespective of form.

There is absolutely no reason why we can't beat them. We have improved our side on last season I'm confident we will raise our game and do what we have to. Also, Spurs not making signings could seriously bite them in the arse by the end of the season.

Imagine they'll go with a similar side/set up to the Watford game. It's their better defensive set up but keeps the midfield three who would be best playing quickly through our press like last year.

Can't wait for this game as it is for me the real measure of how far we have improved this season. We could not finish them in both of our games against them last season. So, to win this one will be a clear sign that we are in for real. It's also good to know that our African-continent players only played once for their respected country and they are ready to go this Saturday.

Would love us to get something on Saturday.
Winning 4/4 is great and despite some people saying that we would have lost or drawn some of those games last year, the fact is we won them, so until we start to turn last years defeats and draws into wins we need to be a bit cautious.

What the first 4 games have shown us is that we've conceded even fewer chances, and when we've needed the keeper to make a save, he has done. 1 out of 4 clean sheets in those games last year against 3 out of 4 this year really gives me hope that we won't need to score 3 or 4 goals to secure the win this year. So many of our draws really should have been those 1 or 2 goal wins that league winners always manage.

The signs are good, it's just doing it now.
A pace goal from a throw in with a resolute defensive performance would do me fine.

Good news about our Brazilian trio.

As I said earlier I would be content with a draw,as they are a tough side to beat, but a win would be massive for the next block of games.

I am really looking to see if our intensity is up and if we play better for longer periods.

Midfield will be key.

Definitely up there with Firmino as a team player.

And I'm sure that Vorm has played well against us in the past so they probably won't miss Loris.

Better if they were sent home early if not going to be used as subs

They’ll likely fly right back to England after the game right?  Looks like the game is being played at 9:30 local time so finished by 11:30.  On a flight home by 1AM?  Imagine they’ll be back in England by early afternoon on Wednesday.  Day off Wednesday, train Thursday and Friday and ready for the match.  Not ideal preparation but that’s what we deal with during international breaks.

Can't see him starting, and if he does he is surely going to be fatigued. Son is boss, by far my favourite Spurs player.
Great player.
Would be perfect for us.
