I need club football!

The depression of not having Spurs over these past two weeks saw me waste away precious time on my PS3 trying to maintain the adrenaline levels interrupted by the international break. I even watched repeats of this season’s matches just to relive the thrill of that winning feeling. I want club football back!

The odds are against us in maintaining our recent form, although there is no doubt in my mind that we could win the next few games. But when you’re on top, sometimes there’s only one way to go. Dare I say it? We face two of the best teams in back to back matches. Man Poo (my United supporting friends are going to hate me) at the Lane, then over to Stamford Bridge to rendevouz with Chelsea and Drogba’s hair stylist.

So I finally get my fix tomorrow when we face the Poo’s shaky yet potentially dangerous squad. It’s not going to be an easy matchup as they’re beginning to gel. Thank God the majority of our players are returning with positive results for their national squads. Only having a day to rest before going straight back into the season is a bit worrying, but thankfully for us, a few of our lot were playing nearby at Wembley.

Some questions on my mind:

  • Keano on the left?
  • Will Harry give Gio a chance?
  • Will Kranjcar get a few minutes of playing time?
  • King and Bassong fit?
  • Pav to come on as a 90th minute sub?
  • Will Joe Jordan finally strangle a referee?

Approx. 28 hours and counting to find out.

    Can’t wait! I live in America (Indiana to be exact) so I had the NFL to get me through last night but I need the Spurs. You’re right, the odds are against us staying undefeated. But, the odds were against us beating Liverpool and going four for four to start the season. Realistically, I think four points from these next two matches would be awesome and I would take two points.
    All of your questions are legitimate and I will be interested to see the answers play out on Saturday. I would be surprised to see Keane on the left and I would be surprised to see Gio get any playing time. Just a gut feeling here, Kranjcar sees about 15 minutes of playing time, King and Bassong will not both play (one will, not sure which), Pav will not see the field. We’ll see though.
    I will predict a 2-1 win for the Spurs (goals by Defoe and Keane for Spurs, Rooney for Man U). Just a shot in the dark. COYS!

      Obviously 3 points from each match is what’s needed but I agree that any points we can muster out of the next two games would be fantastic. Colts fan?

    Long time no post 🙂

    Harry just answered the Bassong question .. but King is a doubt. hope he plays.

    would love to see Gio starting on the left after his great performance for Mexico. Please not Keane ..

    Hudd and Crouch to score

    I understand that King is fit enough to play, and I think Niko will start, but Wilson and Hud are key – if Utd over-run us in centre mid then we stand no chance. Can’t wait for kick off!

      Not so sure Nico will get the nod over Keano… how can we not play our captain against United? Hopefully the next time we’ll all be commenting on a post, it will hopefully be to congratulate each other!
