big game! we simply have to win if we are to stay in the hunt for 4th & stop the rot.
i think it will be close & lots of goals.
im going to say 2-2 draw.
prob be a boring 0-0 game now.
id love a 1-0!
good news is no bellamy or swp.
id prob start crouch & keep the rest of the team the same as wolves.

It can only get better when Modric is back to full fitness!
Adebayor was positively pedestrian and seems to have gone off the boil lately. BAE kept him well contained.
Thought Kranjcar should have got Sky MOTM though I grant you Lennon had a cracking game. Nice to be spoiled for choice for a change.

One of the joys of being a Yid - we have players who can go from the sublime to the ridiculous in two strides!
Another example - Palacios last night - I thought he had a great game in many respects - we was all over the midfield and bossing it from the back - but he made some atrocious passes and give aways. But - I'll take that from him, because when he's out there he doesn't take prisoners.
I also totally agree - he is something we are famous for lacking since Graham Roberts, if ...
I also totally agree - he is something we are famous for lacking since Graham Roberts, if we could get someone else like him and retain the attacking flow, no reason we couldn't get 4th or higher...we generally seem to be playing far more like a team than in previous years
I suppose it'll all go wrong...

ive been thinking the same thing, where will modric play. and on this years form u cant drop hudds or palacios or any of them. i can see a rotation of krancjar, hudds and palacious to make room for modric, who i glad doesny need to b rushed back as niko is playing well. then there is jenas who im not a fan but does at times do well . glad its this kind of headache we have .

Did anybody else also think that Dawson had an immense game?
I only recall him missing one aerial battle all night. IMHO the M-o-t-M was between him and Krancjar. Lennon started slow and then got going - but Daws was consistent all night, and his distribution was excellent as well.
To reduce City to a few not even half chances (ignoring the late Adebayor miss) just shows how well the back four played.

John, Dawson was magnificent last night to me he was the man of the match, also thought Kranjcar was immense for us, Lennon looked really sharp with good link up play, i also think everybody put in a shift last night and i was also pleased to see our fans back on song with great vocal support.
Personally i think it was our best performance alongside the opening game with Liverpool, we were subdued for around 25 minutes but we were superb for the last 15 minutes of the first half.
We also have to give great credit to Gomez i think he has been superb for us and last night hardly anything to do but when called on 2 great saves.
I was on this thread Saturday saying how dissapointing we were against Wolves but what a difference a few days make back in the hunt, if we had have lost last night i think we could of wiltered but we were confident last night and my drive home last night was more enjoyable than Saturday i can tell you.
Going back to your point John on Mr Dawsons performance last night he should and could be in contention for the plane to South Africa, Cappello could do worse than take him even if he is a squad player, he read the game so well and they originally said he could only play when Ledley played, so Ledley could talk him through the game. When he wears the arm band im sure it makes him a much more mature player and even when Woody and King are back i dont think either one of them will be first choice.
Where do we play Modric is now the question, you must play him but who makes way, after last night we could not possibly drop Kranjcar do we jig the midfield drop Huddleston and push Modric up behind the front 2, its a good situation to have lets see what Harry does.
