Man Utd vs Spurs: Pursuit Of Another Pot, A Prediction And The Usual Prattle



Prematch Prattle:
Some week this week. United today. And again on Saturday. Everton as respite come Wednesday night ~ not to mention the eagerly anticipated BUN FIGHT that will be the release of the Carling Cup Final tickets on Wednesday morning.

So ALL that's required then is a repeat then of the magnificent performance that buried the scum last time out. I thought our meeting with this lot last August was amongst one of our most fluid and professional outings of the season ~ despite the result. If we can recapture that class and add the killer finishes we are capable of beating anyone. Yes, even Manchester United at home. This game is huge. Not just for Ramos, but equally so for the Grump From Goven. Juande will be looking to demonstrate that Ar5ena1 wasn't a fluke more a standard now to be maintained. Sir Alex will want to put any young pretenders from the Lane back in their box with, if necessary, a no frills 1-0. He'll acknowledge our strengths, but see his defence and midfield as those that ought decide the game.

My Team:
Cerny
Dawson King Kaboul Lee
Lennon Jenas Malbranque O'Hara
Keane Berbatov

Place Yer Bets:
Berba and Keane are 9/1 & 10/1 respectively for first goalscorer, but I would be more tempted to look at the effervescent Steeeeeeeeeeeeed at 18/1. First half Man Utd second half Tottenham is a cardio vascular tour de force 50/1. I predict a something for the entire family 2-2 draw which would cover with a modest stake, two modest steaks and all the trimmings for two at 20/1, surely.

Team News:
The other lot are at full strength minus only Saha and Gary TenPoundBagFace Neville. We are without the services of Pascal FiveYellows Chimbonda and our injury list is as ever comprised of Benty, Baley, Big Tone and Assou WithmykneeMrMcKay? Ekotto.

I love that "Ar5ena1", Harry. But Dawson at right back? How about Tainio? Or even risk a second outing for newbie Gunter (and hope he gets somewhere near Bale's performance OT). Whoever plays there is probably going to have to pick up Nani or Giggs.

dannyboy said...

I must say I agree with Pompey Yid Harry; you can't drop Tainio after his heroics Tuesday and I say Stalteri for Chimbonda. Not sure if we'll see Chimbonda in a Spurs shirt again actually. Rule 1 in football - never change a winning team.

We have set the standard following the drubbing of the Scum and must look to repeat that. If we do and it's a big if, we CAN beat anyone, anywhere. As I said before, whoever scores first will win in my opinion.

sydney wale said...

same team as Tuesday with Gunter for Chimbonda ( that's why we bought him!) I'm not expecting much after they all went out on the piss after THAT game.

Markspur said...

Brilliant Vid! The way I feel now, if we played with Johnny Pratt at right back, we'll still win! Just hope we get Ar5ena1 in the next round! Their pride is hurt and the next time we play 'em will be a cracker! BIOYCS! COYS!

Harry Hotspur said...

That video is sexy.

I am a Teemu fan, but wouldn't be in hurry to stick Stalts in. Gunter I haven't seen play.

I'd have to have Dawson (NB: with King) over Tainio... Unless you drop YP I s'pose...





Oi Ramos, get me a naffin' cup!

Nice to hear from you HH i sadly however i think we will lose 3-2 today.However i think we are getting stronger as a team what are your opinions on the potential Woodgate transfer Good or Bad?

Harry Hotspur said...

Woodgate? Not excited. I just hope it's a JR target and he and Gus will manage him right IF he comes.

And of course, he'll be overpriced...

On today, I think we will get at least a draw, maybe even nick it if Berba goes bonkers, but curiously I have a feeling we would lose at home...

DON'T ask me why!

Anonymous said...

Yeah thats the typical spurs way! Do all the hard work away from home and then blow it at the lane.We did that last year at stamford bridge and maybe a repeat is in order.And as for Woodgate if he is fit and focused only United Chelsea and Arsenal will have better CB partnership than us.

Vinny said...

Would keep the team the same as the scum game except stick in Stalteri in place of Chimbo, not perfect but experienced enough to come in and do a job.

Got a feeling it will be a draw just to throw another fixture into our schedule and make our premiership life harder!...but like Harry cannot seeing us pulling it off over 2 games, which will not be a disaster given our shot at the Carling Cup, UEFA Cup and pursuance of a minor miracle finish to our league season (7th at best I reckon).

However anything is possible since Ramos is finally making the REAL Spurs stand up...COYS!!!

why isnt King playing?? man, that back four doesnt look good.................

Wit said...

we have a back four of : o'hara LB huddlestone dawson CB's and lee RB. why doesnt this instill any confidence for me and the 50 bucks i have put on a spurs win!! wheres the KING??????

played well today i thought, just didn't take our chances.Not getting down about this loss as i'd resided myself to defeat as soon as the tie was drawn out the hat if i'm honest!(hopefully this will change under JR)lets push on in the league now and uefa and win that f***ing league cup final! Think woodgate would be a good signing,obviously big question marks about his fitness but i bet Ramos's left hand man could sort him out ,and he would be rotated more for us which would help him!king,woodgate,kabhoul,dawson bye bye Rocha,Gardner, like it.i read somewhere that Ramos said it will be his side in a year and after seeing what he's done in 3 months strap on your seat belts boys coz next season will be lift off!
