Think Liecester will be shitting it seeing this Spuds side coming and bottle it without Vardy.

The good thing from their view guess Spurs always be playing catch up but for Spurs could work in their favour and be a advantage..is crazy how far they've come!Impressive goal difference as well and it seems to have happened just suddenly..annoying

Cant see us beating them..draw maybe but way they're playing and way we are...

And 4-0

Although it is painful to say it, my lord Spurs are absolutely flying, they are an absolute joy to watch. I am rooting for Leicester, no question about that, but if Spurs manage to win it, it will be totally deserved.

Might be worse than that City match. City just sat off us and countered us, Spuds will press us all game which our team simply cannot handle and blitz us over and over again.

I think we'll fare slightly better against Liverpool than against Spuds because at least they have significant weaknesses and don't have an elite finisher like Kane. We'll still lose, mind.

If only Real Madrid or Barca were in need of a manager. They could be the only ones who could steal away Poch from Spuds I'd think.

No elite finisher? Origi is doing well. Sturridge is back and firing. Granted they aren't world class but Liverpool's style of play is likely to overwhelm us, our defence will crack and they'll score a few goals from it. It'll be like watching that 4-1 defeat from 11/12 season all over again.

We've already lost 3-1 to them so already got the stupid loss out the way.Unless its 6-1 or something daft then would move country for a bit

True, I suppose. Without Henderson and Can, though, which I forgot about we actually should be beating them.

No fucking way mate I was there when that big eared twat scored in the last minute in 1990. Never contemplate that they can beat us ever.

The only team I dislike a lot is Liverpool. 

Did enjoyed that season of Gerrard slip. Even though I talk some trash about Mourinho the past few weeks I have to give it to him. That was one of the best thing he did for me, make that whole stadium cry. ?

Oh what a fun day that was. :):):)

Come on Pizy, that's ridiculous.

Give or take the odd lad, the 19s are the same squad as the 18s. On top of that most of them either start for the 21s or feature fairly regularly in U21 fixtures. All three age groups have been heavily involved in league races, domestic cups and on the European stage. Throw in the fact that pretty much all of them feature for their national sides, and the lads have already faced a physically and emotionally draining season. With two legs of the FA Youth Cup final still to come, I think it's simply asking too much of the lads to turn out against Leicester. No, in all fairness we should rest the 19s for that game and play the Under 16s instead. They've got to learn sometime after all.

Now, I know what you're thinking; the 16s have had a tough old season as well and they have the stress of school exams coming up soon. Well, I hear you and I share your natural belief that it's really the Under 15 squad that should handle the Leicester fixture. Problem is, that bunch of spoil sports at the FA have some rule that won't allow that. As I said, ridiculous.

:):)

Phrase I never, ever thought I'd utter: Spurs are so much better than us as a footballing side.

It's embarrassing. Just a year ago we finished 23 points ahead of them. Twenty three points! Now they now look light years better than us. That is absolutely insane to think about. Our players should think about that and feel ashamed.

Barring the opening few weeks of the season, they were a better footballing side than we were last season as well. There are two explanations for the extraordinary twenty-three point gap.

  1. Jose
  2. Mourhino
