Our first trip to the new Wembley and your looking at a good hiding unless you improve on many of the basics because Wolves look perfect opponents for a super confident Spurs.

Can Wolves retain the ball because they must on the wide open spaces if not to be chasing all game.


Forecast for this one, home win. It could be anything..

if spuds score a perfectly good goal,as we did,lets hope a lino finds something wrong with it.
I did think that our lads played Fulham in the first half with one eye on the spuds game.
We did OK second half a few weeks ago,I expect a better performance than last weekend.

I expected a torrid afternoon at The Emirates but we came away disappointed not to have won, and I expect a difficult afternoon at Wembley, given Sperz current form, but maybe it's a game where we can actually create more chances than at Fulham. I'd like to think that following the craven Cottage performance and how things panned out against Sperz at Molineux, that Nuno may have a plan?

Damn, Son is due to miss a load of matches for Spurs this January, but hasn't come early enough for our match. This guy is a major pain for Spurs at the moment. Fear the worse with him and Kane upfront.

Its the kind of game where your expectation cant get ahead of the realism.

You might have ambitious romantic thoughts of taking the game to them with a 3-4-3 system but realistically your going to be forced back.


For much of the game its 5-4-1 with all hands to the pump and just hoping your keeper has a lucky as well as good day.


The back five pick themselves, its the four in front that makes your mind think, then you have Raul up top.

Is there a case for Vinagre in front of Jonny, what about athleticism in central midfield.

How would you go about trying to gain a result?

Expecting a repeat of the Liverpool game.

Maybe a few attacking opportunities created but spending most of the game hanging on, expending maximum energy just trying to keep the score in check. They absolutely ripped us apart at home whenever they attacked and they have improved even further in the weeks since.

Having said that Burnley held them goalless for 93 minutes a few weeks ago.

Having beaten us at home a few weeks ago and been banging goals in for fun recently, hopefully they might think they've got this one in the bag already.

I expect us to raise our game and I'm sure Spurs won't be sitting back which will suit us. If we can get the first goal it could be a very interesting afternoon.

I fear the worst too, but I would line up like we did at the Emirates. Have Cav, Costa and Jimenez up top and hope they can do something on the counter attack, expect the rest to sit deep.

Logic dictates I fear a walloping but, then again, should be more of an open game which gives us the opportunity to " have a go at `em ".

Surprising to 'rest' Saiss and Moutinho after their excellent contributions at Fulham. Tired?

Interesting to put Dendonker in - talk about 'baptism of fire'!? Will certainly see if he is Premier material.

Also interesting to keep Traore in.

Going to be an interesting afternoon.

Sorry - missed my chance to buy tickets (somehow delete the email!) and sold out by time I realised! So no 'Just got Back' today. Anyone else willing??

foook Bolly couldn't close down a shop on the high street - it is not enough to lumber back between player and goal - especially one Mr Harry Kane.

Are you there? Was Boly really at fault? Will be keen to see later on TV.

Haven't created a single chance, and Spurs look happy to manage the game and not over exert themselves, not good to watch.

Great strike from Kane, I think the left isn't his strongest foot either.

Rui can't kick, Traore and Cav are sub optimal compared to Jota and Costa, and Donk is pretty anonymous.

I'm here. Yep Boly probably not tight enough, but it looked like a foul on Cav in the build up.

Combining better and looking a lot more fluid with Traore off.

wow - just wow - 3-1 - do like mr Pochetino, but love 3 points and a grt 2nd half even more. Mr Boly may have redeemed himself after first goal. So much better after Traore off, surely Nuno sees this, or is Adama some sort of shock troop now, rather than a 2nd half impact sub.

Will cry in beer tonight!!!

You should take a look at Molineux Mix, it's the official site of the Adama Traore fan club

Anyway 3-1 win at Wemberlee, a great end to the year, January reinforcements incoming, I can't believe what is happening at my club!

Brilliant, half the people I play football with are Spurs fans.

Bet they wish they had pushed for a second when they were controlling it first half.

I reckon that Nuno posted up KK's prediction league tip on the dressing room board. Masterstroke.
