Tottenham Hotspur host Huddersfield Town in matchday 29 of the Premier League on Saturday 3rd March, 3:00pm at Wembley Stadium.

The hosts currently sit in 5th place in the table having beaten Arsenal 1-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 17th after their 4-1 win against Bournemouth.

Huddersfield Town gaffer David Wagner told the Terrier’s official site: “It’s great to be back at Wembley in a competitive game. The problem is that it’s against Tottenham, one of the best teams in the Premier League, or maybe in the world at the minute.”

The boy Kane scored twice against the Terriers at the John Smith’s earlier this season as Spurs thumped Town 4-0 at the John Smiths Stadium.

It was less than cheery time for regular Pain In The Backside Boy Dele Alli who won a yellow card for simulation by referee Neil Swarbrick in the second half, in the same week he was banned from playing for England for one game because of ‘that’ middle finger gesture.

People use the phrase ‘witch hunt’ when commenting upon Alli’s idiocies, but the truth is folk are just pointing out his cheating and his generally ill judged behaviour.

Even Alan Shearer – a notorious elbow in the face merchant – said after that game that it really was time that Dele wised up, and more than hinted that fans relented with the ‘he’s only 21’ routine.

That game back in February was also a historic for staging Sis-ocko’s first goal for Spurs.

    The Skywalk experience will be interesting. I mean what’s the view of London like from the top of the stadium? Lots of tower blocks?

    Very few if any tower blocks obstructing views. I should think one would be able to see from Ally Pally all the way round to Canary Wharf and all of the tall buildings in the City. Fabulous views on a clear day.

    • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 1:00 pm

      So… heard some fairly reliable ITK this morning that the stadium will definitely not be finished in time for next season. Good news is that enough of it will be finished to accommodate normal punters. Cheese rooms, lounges and boxes won’t be up and running til much later.

      • 61SpursNut🌰 March 2, 2018 at 1:18 pm

        For “the start” of next season.

      • Sexy Beast March 2, 2018 at 1:20 pm

        Feel free to share it with us 👍

        • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 2:25 pm

          I just did share it!

          That’s it basically. Fans will be in next season, probably late but away fixtures will allow this. Boxes, cheese room etc won’t be ready until later on. Looks like box holders will have to sit with the plebs for a few games.
          The stadium will be open – just not all of it.
          Probably.

          100% – the full stadium will not be ready by September.

      • Sexy Beast March 2, 2018 at 1:28 pm

        As the 7,000 premium and 1,200 in the boxes will be paying 60/70% of the gate money I suspect Levy would rather those parts be ready before the seats go in for the peasants 😂

        • mattspurs March 2, 2018 at 2:26 pm

          Peasants will be in first – boxes won’t be ready for first game.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? March 2, 2018 at 1:40 pm

        Looking at it a month ago I couldn’t see how anyone could be confident if it being ready. 6 months now. The structures not even done, with all the interior and pitch and now this weather shit there’s just no way. Its wishful thinking, always has been.

            I politely rebuff your opinion as hogwash.
            We have the option of playing our first few games away (if needed), plus with the international break, this will give us an additional 7/8 weeks to complete the build.

      • Caspurs♿️ March 2, 2018 at 1:43 pm

        It’s more likely that in the event of the build not being completed fully, the GA areas along with areas away from the public view will be finished to a more basic standard, with completion of the fit out to the designed spec after the stadium has opened, which isn’t uncommon.

      Is it due to snow at Wembley for the game?

      • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:18 am

        I think not. I’m expecting more snow but I’m in the West.

      • 61SpursNut🌰 March 2, 2018 at 11:18 am

        Nope. Clear skies and a balmy 5 degrees.

        • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:19 am

          I know it snows in Korea but Son looked farken frozen vs Rochdale

          • 61SpursNut🌰 March 2, 2018 at 11:21 am

            That’s what waiting 2 hours to take a penalty does to you.

            • Freund or Foe March 2, 2018 at 11:22 am

              That wasn’t hesitation in the run up, his foot was frozen to the floor.

            • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:23 am

              That was a bullshit call

              • 61SpursNut🌰 March 2, 2018 at 11:24 am

                No, it was definitely 2 hours.

              • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:25 am

                Yeah. When refs get the law wrong can they get called out? The yellow would be rescinded in a sane world.

                • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:25 am

                  Should be

                  • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:29 am

                    I’d complain to the FA. How can the card stand when he didn’t commit an offence because the ref doesn’t know the rules?

                    Court for Arbitration in Sport. Make a fecking stand and embarrass the wankers.

          This is what Three Degrees look like

  • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:11 am

    Foist!

    • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:12 am

      Bum.

    • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:13 am

      Me fingers are too cold to type quickly! 😣

      • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:14 am

        It’s a balmy 20 deg C midnight in the North of the shaky Isles 😁

        • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:16 am

          Thermometer telling me it’s minus 6 C.

          • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:17 am

            Throw another log on the fire mate

            • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:19 am

              All electric.

              • 61SpursNut🌰 March 2, 2018 at 11:20 am

                You have electric logs. That’s gotta sting.

                • Gus March 2, 2018 at 11:22 am

                  😲😲😲

                • gloster1861 March 2, 2018 at 11:23 am
