  3. I would play my strongest team, kinda like a reward to play at Spurs new ground. Imagine the bounce if we managed to beat them!
  4. I think it was Dean Ashton who scored and broke Schwarzers cheek/nose with a swinging elbow in an FA Cup semi?

  6. This game is another 'must not lose' but I would prefer if we set up as 'must win'.
  7. Ive only seen us on tele and highlights....when would you say we abandoned the high press? For me, it worked vs Luton and we were unlucky not to win and then every time ive seen us we barely pressed as a unit.
  8. I think Woody really needs to work out how he wants to play before identifying any targets. But I eoukd certainly give Pears at least the season if we sell Randolph.
  9. Agreed....Mcnair Wing Tav and Howson should be a very good diamond at this level but I would have more faith in Karanka setting us up to make it work with and without the ball. Useless having 4 ball playing CM with 2 attacking wingbacks if we just hit the channels and expect Britt and Fletcher to chase all game and then getting cut to shreds without the ball.
  10. I had written a post defending Gestede earlier but think it got lost as I shut my browser but.... He did ok when he came on. It was a combination if him being a big bloke in a position to nod the ball on, and Stoke panicking and focusing all attention on him. Even if he isnt winning every ball (i only remember him winning 2 headers) the fact that he challenges and prevents defenders clearing it where they like is a bonus to us. His little movement across everyones sight line for Wings goal is a deft simple move which probably went unnoticed to most but it just creates that uncertainty amongst defenders and buys attackers a second. Dont get me wrong, I believe with the players we have we are more suited to a narrow centre with wingbacks pushing on in a high press and counter system which Gestede doesnt really fit into but as long as Woody persists with hoof and hope then he is more than suitable. Our movement in the first half was non existent which I think is why lots of passes went sideways and backwards. Tav lost the ball so many times but he was given no options and he was trying hard to force something. I know the rumours are that we are looking at an attacking midfielder but it honestly looks like we need a defensive midfielder to free up Tav Wing and Mcnair to work higher up the pitch.
  11. Id go with that. I honestly dont think the players are that bad, it seems to be just how they are being asked to play. Someone stated earlier that Tav was afraid to get on the ball. I think in the first half he was the only one looking for it....the problem was when he got it nobody was looking for it from him!
