I have a feeling it could be a high scoring game.

Its going to be a tough game, cookie monster you always seems to be far too pessimistic about every game, i'll go for a prediction of 2-2.

and yeah Rafael tends to play well against Bale, hopefully he can carry on that tomorrow.

Haha, I think I've just always been like this. I guess I don't like being too confident or over the top just because it'll end up biting me in the ass. And growing up as a Spurs fan, you get used to just being disappointed, so I suppose it's built in to you.

I'd take 2-2, not with us going 2-0 up however, haha. Rafael seems to be in good form and I think he'll do a good job on Bale, which then means we go and switch him and Lennon which never works.

Some people like to feel a part of their club rather than booing them.

Agreed, I haven't said we are definitely going to win once this season.

I'm expecting a defeat because we DON'T do doubles over Man Utd. It just doesn't happen. In fact I'll be putting a lot of money on Man Utd to win to bitter the blow anyway, I saw them at odds of 13/10 the other day which is just too good to be true.

Carrick will run the game. He didn't at OT because Sandro and Dembele dominated the midfield. We have no Sandro which is a blow in itself and Dembele is off form at the moment. Parker is coming into the team and will be making his first Premier League start this season and finds himself next to Dembele, not the best game to try and forge a partnership. They didn't look too good together against QPR.

Past few years against Man Utd, Rafael ALWAYS seems to have Bale in his pocket and it will probably be the same. Sure, Bale can drift in and out but I think our danger man tomorrow will be Lennon. He is on superb form at the moment and it's a good opportunity for him to attack Evra and the Man Utd defence.

I think it will be entertaining as well as a roller coaster for hopefully both sets of fans. I think games between us are usually very entertaining and for some reason it always ends up in controversy. Hopefully none of that and just a good footballing match between two good teams.
When I said learning curve I meant more in the sense of you might learn to alter your style of play against United in the future or even in big games. It'll be a good lesson for some of the younger players and a chance to see how this Spurs side which is being built for the future can handle the pressure of playing the top team at home in a game that they want to win to keep ahead of those behind them as well as laying down a message about their potential.

I guess United have such a great history of doing things the hard way as well as how uninspired and poor we've looked in a lot of games this season makes me think you should be a little more optimistic/less fearful of a drubbing. You're a team who play with pace, have skillful and creative players up top and who can make it hard for us to play at a comfortable pace. United haven't set the world on fire and its been a case of teams not being able to exploit us when we've had bad spells in games, which as anyone who's watched us this season could tell has been evident in numerous games. Whether it was starting poorly at the start of the season or recently where its become an issue of one good half coupled with an average/below other half as well as us struggling to keep the ball and dominate when leading as teams seem more comfortable attacking us when trailing, e.g West Ham in the cup and Newcastle in the league.

I think United will win, but this fixture especially at White Hart Lane is no longer as comfortable as it once was. You, Everton & Villa have really improved at home against us in recent years and taken points in games United generally won comfortably against. I'm usually more confident at OT when we play you and Everton because we've shown away from home that the games really are hard to call. You're good enough to punish a poor United performance whilst also being succeptible to a good United comeback. Its a finely poised contest and I don't see much from United's form or momentum to suggest we're the favourites tomorrow.

Fair enough. I understand what you mean. I do think AVB is a great coach, in some games this season his tactics have been very astute. I think he did a good job at Old Trafford earlier in the season and I hope he tries doing something similar tomorrow, it would be a real good result for him and us and I think would really stake our claim as a top side.

I don't think you should be worrying about our attack at all really. We have struggled to score in games all season. I mean you've seen some of the misses our strikers have pulled off in the past few games, Defoe at Sunderland, Adebayor at Sunderland and QPR last week. Defoe has reached that part of the season where he stops scoring now and doesn't add much, much like he does EVERY SEASON after a good start. The definition of a purple patch player, in fact I can't believe we haven't upgraded our strike force at all in the past year.

I agree that I think we are good enough to punish you IF you play poor. I just can't see a poor United performance tomorrow. I can see you shooting out the blocks at 80mph. I don't think we'd be able to handle you when you play the one touch passing I have seen you play this year. Time for Lloris to make himself a hero though.

I didn't realise Newcastle's form was that bad. 8 points from a possible 42. Damn.

Spurs is just a horrible matchup for us. Demebele is like our fucking kryptonite, along with Fellaini, just seems to destroy us. We struggle against physicality in midfield and pace up front/on the wings, in other words - Spurs. Sandro is certainly a big loss though, which gives me some sort of optimism. Should open up some space for those dropping off the striker.

The last game was a joke, we played into their hands from the start allowing them to counter at will. We sorted it out, Rooney made a big impact and we should have scored 4 or 5.

Lennon used to destroy Evra when Evra was good and Lennon was shit, so there's that.

Anyways. I look forward to the pints and of course
