    Chelsea?

    Agree Rambr0, too often we've gone 1 goal up then thrown it away - it was definitely a worrying pattern last season.

    If Lennon can get his act together on the right flank (supported by either Corluka or Hutton, or even Naughton being given a run-out) then Cashley will hopefully have as torrid a time as Evra in the CC final last season :-)) And if he can get his crossing spot on then who knows? I'm pretty sure Defoe will cause them problems too.

    No reason not to have Ledders playing - he'll be nicely rested from last weekend's game against Manure. I'm all for individual performances as long as they benefit the team as a whole.

    I read that Anelka thinks Chelsea should respect us as an in-form team - at last somebody acknowledges what we're capable of. That said, I wouldn't want to see any complacency creep in to the squad - that can only spell disaster. If our mindset doesn't change and we approach the game in a positive frame of mind bolstered by 4 wins out of 5 then anything is possible.

    3pts from the Bridge would be awesome, but agree I'd settle for 1pt as long as we put up a good fight.

    • I think I'll keep my cake-'ole well and truly shut!!

      Come On You Spurs!!

      As they say in FM09 - Do it for the fans!!

    • As KM rightly points out its the mindset of our players that will dictate this result. We are certainly capable of getting something from this game despite Chelsk being the in form team at the moment. A lot will depend on how our lads deal with last weeks reverse. If they still have the belief and come at Chelsea then anything can happen. If they dont...then it doesnt bare thinking about.
      I'd take a point here thats for sure!

      • Unfortunately as most bookies have Chelski 1 to 2 on to win and Spurs 6 to 1 I think that says it all.

        I wonder what the odds would have been if we had showed up and given Manure a proper game last week.

        I do think we are better than 6 to 1 but even so that is a big gap given our great start to the season. Worth a little punt for me I think so I am off to the bookies and leaving them with £20 quid of the housekeeping!
