We'll play for the 0-0 and lose 2-0.

 

All hail Karankaball and our return to the Championship.

I'd like to see him try bamford on the left, pushing inside he'd probably get on the end of some of traores crosses across the box, he's quicker and would suit our counter style better than stuani I think.

Not a bad shout.

Could be a cricket score, spurs will be right up for this after being held by sunderland, 90 minute onslaught is what i'm expecting.

Adama will play and we'll have 3 holding mids, I reckon. Reason being, we'll be looking to counter. We can't rely on attacking football because, frankly, we can't play it. Also doubt Karanka will start Guedioura as we all know what he's like with bedding in new signings. So I'm going for:

 

GK - Valdes

 

RB - Barragan

CB - Chambers

CB - Gibson

LB - Friend

 

CM - Clayton

CM - de Roon

CM - Forshaw

 

RW - Traore

ST - Negredo

LW - Downing

 

Could easily be Fabio for Barragan and Stuani for Downing, though.

I'm really looking forward to this. Playing a good team with nothing to lose. We have a cracking record against big teams. The players and fans should love it.

 

I've never been to WHL, am full of cold, and the trains are getting diverted via Cambridge. It's going to be a great day out.

Vertonghen is injured so both of Spurs CB's, Dier and Alderweireld, are right footed so that should help Traore on the counterattack taking on the left sided CB when Rose is upfield. I'd stick with the same forward three.

 

One of my Spurs suppprting students tells me Rose won't play.

I suspect we will see this sooner rather than later

Maybe it is time for a Karazy Karanka Kurveball:

 

 

------------ Valdes ------------

---Chambers Espinosa Gibson--

Fabio De Roon Clayton Downing

---------------- Traore ----------------

------ Bamford ---- Negredo -------

 

 

Up the Biro

I think Chambers is out for weeks isn't he? Is Ayala fit to return? I'd like him to replace Espinosa and partner Gibson at the back.

Ha - don't apologise. It is never going to happen!

 

I do like the idea of giving Adama a 'do whatever the hell you like' role though.

Spurs are better than us to a man all over the pitch. They have a bench that can really make a difference plus I think Pottechino is the next Jose/Pep/Fergie all rolled into one. Add to the fact they'll be fuming by being held by Blunderland and they are now at home they'll be right up for this.

With all this in mind I can't see us getting any joy out of it so I'll say this has 2-0 to the Boro written all over it :)

    • I think we do need a foreign manager in as they just seem to have better connections as we would never of signed Kike Stuani, Ramirez if Karanka wasn't Spanish didn't speak the language. That's the trouble hard with English manager they don't speak the language or get the culture that puts us at disadvantage in recruitment when most flair players are foreign 
    • @Erimus 63 I am not sure how from my post you came to conclusion i was in adoration of Gibson. In fact i actually state “gibson is not perfect”. To be fair no owner is. People who are fans of Gibson can point to justifiable reasons why. And people who are not fans of his can also make some justifiable reasons as to why they are not. I can appreciate both sides of argument. However, the point of my post was to simply say “the grass is not always greener on the other side”.   Do I want to see if the grass is greener? Not really. I see other clubs who were similar in size to us during our PL days and look at where some of them are now and I really dont wish to take the risk. Yes under new ownership, we might end up back in PL but there is also just a good a chance we might end up falling down the leagues and as @Blanco rightly said ultimately not end up existing at all.  For that reason I am not actively going to champion Gibson should leave or sell the club. For all his faults I know he genuinely give a sh*t about this club and wont let us follow the journey that unfortunately some of the other clubs our size have in recent years. And that will more than do for me.
    • I don’t want Gibson to sell the club. However, I do want him to delegate his powers to a Director of Football. Much in the same way that whilst Delia Smith is a great cook, she knows her limitations running a football club in an efficient and effective manner so appointed Stuart Webber to do this. Gibson just rates himself too highly to think that anyone could possibly do this better than him. The Evening Gazette and BBC Tees portray any criticism of Gibson as fans wanting him to sell the club, but it’s not that at all. I think the vast majority want him to be our owner, just not the key decision maker as he’s not very good at it.
    • That is absolute BS. There would be no club without Gibson. The stupid vilification of him is what has to stop.
