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 fully expect that we will be back in full lockdown by mid January; at least in the North and Midlands (London and the South might get spared as putting them into another lockdown would be politically more damaging for the government in the longer-term due to voting patterns).  Allowing the Christmas window and then locking us down again after enables the government to be seen to be doing something about the virus and all the 'irresponsible' people in the North, and therefore keeps their core Southern voters happy.  I will admit that I have broken the current lockdown, but I have done so in a responsible way.  I live on my own and have no remaining family, so I do not have significant contact with people (not of the sort that would promote virus spread).  I have one friend who I saw a few times in the Summer, and there was one occasion we met up with a couple of other people outside at the picnic tables at the Dales Centre.  Other than that, I have not seen anyone properly since early March.  I am in the very vulnerable group (on medical grounds, not age) and was shielding until August.  Being trapped inside and never seeing anyone has been really bad for my mental health to the point where I have sometimes felt like I would be better off dead.  I have been doing 'non essential' trips out because I cannot cope with being shut in any more.  I have been driving to places on my own and not been in close contact with anyone other than passing on footpaths (on places like Hedleyhope and Waskerley) or on my weekly Greggs trip.  There are days when I have gone for a drive simply to get out of the house.  I need to go beyond my village to not feel shut in and sub-human.  I am not in a social bubble because most people are in bubbles with their parents or children and the the small number who aren't had formed themselves into friendship pair bubbles while I was still shielding.   The whole system assumes that everyone has a partner or family.
    • Do Sheffield United want Britt think he'd get along well with their strike force 🤪 
    • Yeah the fatigue thing cant be used as a mitigating factor as every team in the league is dealing with the same schedule, some with a couple of extra cup games earlier in the season and some with more than just 2 international players. Yes we have a smaller squad than some but we also have players in the squad who aren't getting minutes which is the managers decision. Fatigue management is just another facet of management and if we start to lose games because of it that's on the management team.
    • I think some of the players today looked fatigued, in my opinion. NW not picking certain players, not making substitutions earlier or even using all 5 allowed substitutions (recently), will further fatigue certain players as they will have to continue to play on. Howson, McNair, Dijksteel, Saville and Tav have all played over 1100 minutes so far this season. Only Brentford have the same amount of outfield players (5) as us, to have played over 1100 minutes. So although we both agree we are in the same predicament as every other team, our circumstances in terms of player numbers are certainly different. Regarding your other points they are well made, but I'm not sure why you have made them when the original discussion was regarding player fitness and how I thought it played a small part in today's performance.
