Danny Rose has returned to training only for photographs of him on the pitches to be greeted by a swathe of ‘fat’ jibes.

Tough at the top.

Bournemouth then.

You’ll forgive me for pointing out the naffing obvious but looking for meaningful form here is far from straightforward. Sure, Spurs have won 3 out the last 4 times these two sides have met, but none of those games took place at Wembley.

To which end, Spurs playing a less than full force XI will be self defeating. We need to meet Real Madrid with our tails up, not arrive with an ongoing identity crisis.

Sanchez has to fly back but he’s not some 8 year old kid with ADHD syndrome. Spend the day in bed Thursday, light training on Friday and he can be subbed if he’s feeling it once Kane’s popped a couple in the visitor’s onion bag.

The trick in the midfield is to hope that Mousa can be in the right condition to play against the Meringues. Dier plus one may work for Jelly & Ice Cream round Dele Alli’s pied 脿 terre, but the Spanish Giants庐 will go though us like fresh foamy pint of Epsom salts.

    Yes, Harry would turn down Arsenal. That’s to do with rivalry – but has anyone ever turned down the chance to be a Galactici? I don’t think so. I just don’t want a crocked Bale and an old Benzema exchange.

    I have a feeling we will really play well this game. Everyone back from Interlulls. Some played really well even scored goals and Jan scored and broke a record for his country. We should be pretty confident.

    The guys should be looking forward to this game. Sanchez will be fine. Wembley is slowly becoming less of an issue. Rose is NOT fat for a guy sitting on his arse for 8 months. You should see me after 8 weeks. He actually looks OK.

    I have watched a few of the Brazilian games and I notice Paulinho is killing it again. Strong and great positioning.

    My biggest problem is my form in the Ronglish Superbru. WTF.
