Bravery Or Bow Locks?

Bravery Or Bow Locks?

The FA Cup is beginning to shape up nicely.

At time of blogging Lincoln City, Middlesborough and Millwall are all through.

Man City face what is certain to be an unwelcome replay with the mighty Huddersfield Town. A proper quote from the Town boss David Wagner after the game :  “We are still in the competition which is great. Another match in this busy footballing period but that is not a problem for us. For sure we are one of the fittest teams in the division.

“We were able to make them uncomfortable, they were the better team with chances which is no surprise to anybody but we showed great attitude and passion.”

This is what we want from football. That old ‘no surrender’ touch.

Fair play Mr Wagner.

Wolves are also giving Chelsea a go. That match has another 45minutes to play.

Marge Lawrenson said: “I think Tottenham might struggle to get the job done at Craven Cottage, but I think they will come through a replay back at White Hart Lane.”

Lawro has predicted a 1-1 draw. He may have a point.

This season’s competition is one that Tottenham Hotspur ought to be elbowing their way forward in. So what will it be, bravery …or bogged down and sidetracked by absolute Bow Locks?

    On another note.. Watching Isco today run the show just had me wandering ‘what if?’
    Atleast a man can dream..

    Lincoln, Millwall, now Fulham will be up for this. It’s going to be a scrap for us. Have we got the desire, or are the players wimps?

    Gimps, shrimps, chimps, limps.

    1/ Based on our performances against Chelsea and WBA ….. We’ll tear them a new one….

    2/ Based on our performances against Wycombe, Sunderland, Boro, Liverpool….They’ll tear us a new one…..

    Number 2 it is then

    I just hope that Fulham fan, Richard Osman (Pointless fame) is not striker for Fulham, as he’s about 6′ 6”. And good with his head! Will need marking highly.

  • Horndog 😎 February 18, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    We had better be f*cking brave. That is all.

    Not really a fan of daft punk or pharrel Williams but I’m a massive fan of Nile Rodgers plus the mash up of an old soul train video. Not bad

      Before a ball was kicked, the footballing brainacs all agreed that,out of the top 6,we had the trickiest FA cup fixture. That Fulham are no pushovers and that anything can happen in the cup. Because of the above I’m going for a 4 nil win.

      Climb aboard.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 18, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    Fulham at over 3/1, depending on our team looks like value to me. A patchwork quilt of sissoko, onamah, Davies, c.v. etc and I’m all in for traitorous gambling.

  • Harry Hotspur February 18, 2017 at 9:03 pm

    Chelsea on for the double.

    But Spurs have the moral high ground because they refuse to waste money on players.

    I’m standing in the corner searching for my rizla.

  • Spurstacus 💋 February 18, 2017 at 8:41 pm

    If you’re going to the game tomorrow, keep your wits about you. If 360° Dembele and 720° Parker clash in the middle of the park, there’s a good chance they will create a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong centre of low atmospheric pressure which will suck the occupants of the stadium up, and fling them all across SW London.

    • Caspurs ♿️ February 18, 2017 at 8:44 pm

      Narp.

      • Superspoz 🏆 February 18, 2017 at 8:53 pm

        I think they might actually explode if that happens. The energy created will try to escape into the low atmospheric pressure. Oh shit!

        • 89Spurs 👁 February 18, 2017 at 8:55 pm

          You can’t beat a bit of downdraught, in the right place.

    • LingLongMan 🚯 February 18, 2017 at 9:36 pm

      They will bore into the pitch at high rpm leaving a trench as they go.

    I’m hoping Poch’ll do to right thing and throw the game, tomorrow.

    Wolves fans are good value. Singing the lower league stomper, ‘Barmy Army!’ and the classic ‘You only sing when you’re winning!’
