Looks like Tottenham have some big guns in the squad.

Eriksen and Moura are there at the very least.

Looks like all the big guns are there

Won't be VAR at our ground, mate!

Hope it's a close game, I think you should batter us but who knows, FA Cup and all that. I'd think this is something Mourinho would like to win this season though.

Think VAR is in operation today

We've actually played a weaker side than Tottenham by resting Pears.

They've got no excuses, this is a huge ask.

Didn’t expect that from spurs at all. Hopefully it isn’t an absolute thrashing

What’s Pearsy done wrong to get dropped?

Rested for the League, he's our number 1 keeper now.

Nothing but I'm sure mejias deserves a chance too, it's a cup game no one expects us to win (except us maybe)

Only competition Spurs have a chance of winning, so not that big of a surprise fielding a strong side.

Keepers don’t need to be rested. They are far more likely to get injured on the training pitch than in a match. It’s pretty unusual for a keeper to go off injured during a match. They get a lot more shots fired at them and crosses swung in at them in a training session. I don’t see the logic and it seems unfair on the lad.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
