Plausible XI to beat The ‘Boro
By Harry Hotspur -

Middlesborough away and perhaps a timely note of caution for those fans that might see this as an opportunity to make drastic changes to this afternoon’s Spurs FA cup team.

Last time I looked, ‘Boro are a Championship side and the last lower league experience Tottenham had been at Colchester and that ended with (Cuckoo Farm) egg all over our faces.

Harry Kane and Tanguy Ndombele are both out, as are Danny Rose, Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies. The club site says that Eric Dier has returned to training.

The bookies have Spurs as short favourites @6/10 on, the draw @3/1 and a ‘Boro win @9/2.

Our hosts are 16th (out of 24 sides) in their division, but it may be of useful add at this point that manager Jonathan Woodgate has won 5 of his last 6 games.

The magic of the cup may well play second fiddle to dignity retention on this occasion. Jose will be well aware that Middlesborough will fancy their chances against what is an unreliable Spurs side.

    Boro could do us today, if we go at them we may have too much quality. If we go to sleep and sit off Jose style we could go one down and the problems start.

    If Jose is still the ‘winner’ of a few years ago then we will win the FA Cup, no problems…

      True, if the academy is the future plan like Donna Cullen said then bring it on Donna and Daniel. Show us the bright future… 😂

      A much changed team could easily lose this, let Colchester be a warning.

        I agree that’s y I think just those 3 players kane forced skipp has earned a cup game and tanganga simply because I’m bored of the current defense lol

        If I’m honest i just want to watch us play with desire again

        If we lose it’s because they worked hard not because we didnt
