“Forza Tottenham!” was bellowed at me yesterday afternoon. I’ve had worse things shouted at me in the street, none of which can be published on the family friendly blog which has received complaints about both profanity and making light of a man dying. Mind you, the same cretins are currently petitioning against the showing of a Peter Rabbit movie. I digress.
Spurs in Europe, under the lights with an old lady, eyes down for a full house.
A game to savour and yet approach with some caution. This lot ain’t Real Madrid.
I’m to sure if Harry Kane is looking forward to pitting his wits against Giorgio Chiellini or describing what an Oxfam employee did too him when he was on holiday.
“He obviously knows when to come tight and get up your backside and also when to drop off. It’s the experienced defenders that are the most difficult because they know where to be at the right times.”
With just Toby out because he’s on his way back to full fitness from a 3 month injury, Poch has no excuses when it comes to players to pick from: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Rose, Davies, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Dier, Aurier, Trippier, Wanyama, Sissoko, Winks, Dembele, Oakley-Boothe, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Lamela, Llorente, Kane.
Predictions please, ladies?
