Be interesting to see how we approach this one, we aren't blessed with huge depth, but certainly resting a few players would show we have 1 eye on Fulham. 

Equally same goes for Spurs, I have a feeling Jose will put out a strong team. Realistically this is their only chance of getting any silverware. 

As the kick off approaches I am feeling more and more confident. Think if we can stop Spurs getting an early lead, and then frustrate them we stand a decent chance. 

Annoyingly I'll have to support us in secret as I'm in the home end, with my 2 Spurs supporting mates.

Just say 'Cor blimey guvnor' every time something happens.  They'll never know :classic_ninja:

My mates know my real intentions it's just all the other cockneys that don't.

Sol Campbel Made a good career move going to Arsenal 

The Barclays Asia Trophy (China, last trophy they won in 2009) isn’t a real trophy

Son Heung-min has quite a fanbase over there (and over here), doesn't he?

Is it not wonderful and uplifting what decent form and a few good results will do for you.  I am looking forward to kick which is something I would not have said a short time ago. Oh don’t get me wrong I am expecting Jose to go all out for a win because it’s a route to silverware he badly needs, but it’s Jose under the cosh and not Woody which could play into our hands. 
I hope we play a flowing game and the players enjoy the occasion because it can only help us build on recent form. What a difference a game makes... 

Give it a go lads and enjoy the game. UTB!

Would love us to play Randolph tonight, but obviously we're not going to.

Should play him, no reason not to.

I expect they're still hoping to sell him to West Ham, and West Ham are in to the next round.

Every little helps.

Pie and pint report to follow.

At the game tonight in the Spurs end. Last time I saw Spurs at home we beat them on pens in the league cup. I'm the lucky charm lads!

Looking forward to the match this evening - makes a change watching it in the lounge on the TV instead of on my PC! 

Just hoping we don't get thrashed. If we lose narrowly then we concentrate on the league, if we win we knock out last years CL finalists and our confidence will be sky high. Either way we're good!

UTB

Me too

I had to sit with the Pompey fans at Fratton Park and my ‘mate’ lifted up my hoodie to reveal the Boro shirt underneath.

Had to make a quick exit 😄

    • What do you mean by you installed the Win8 iso onto a flash drive? The iso is meant to be burned to a DVD-rom.  It should be an executable file for a flash drive.
    • In no particular order:   Juninho v Arsenal. Jan 2004. League cup semi final, first leg against the Invincibles. That was when I started feeling that this was our year. Maccarone v Basel. April 2006. UEFA Cup Quarters. 90th minute winner to take us through to Steau, where he did it again! Stuani v Brighton. May 2016. Championship. Stadium is bouncing, packed to the rafters, we only need a draw to gain promotion to the Premier League under Karanka. The party started at that moment and even a Brighton leveller couldn't dampen the mood!  
    • Update: I installed the Windows 8 iso on a flash drive and plugged it into the laptop to boot up, but it doesn't appear to be working. Still trying to boot up from the HDD instead and ignoring the USB.   I am still looking for a CD Boot up disc but I'm not even sure if that will work now 
    • God, I couldn't even pick just three.  Lots to choose from over the years, including some of the great choices selected above 👍 Hendrie's two against Luton, bye bye Ayresome but hello Premier League and The Riverside.  Ravanelli at Wembley 96/97, it looked like we were going to do it finally but then we didn't.  Festa, a whole week later, at Old Trafford against Chesterfield, when it looked like we'd avoided an absolute catastrophe only for history to repeat itself.  Rav's last minute penna winner against Villa at the beginning of the week of destiny.  The whole first 5 mins of the Liverpool League Cup semi final in 97/98.  The first few minutes of the second half against Oxford in the same season.  Festa's last minute equaliser at Southampton when we were down to 9 men for a 3-3 draw in the 98/99 season and Brian Deane's goal to put us 3-0 up at Man Utd a few weeks later - I think that was the last game Man Utd lost that season before winning the treble - "We're gonna win the league", well maybe not.  Boksic twice up at St James park against the Geordies a couple of seasons later.  01/02 season against Man Utd in the cup, hardly any bugger there because there was some argument about the ticket pricing and the fact that it was a lunchtime kick off on the telly, two goals in the last 5 mins to win it, hurrah!  We had some good times against Man Utd back then for whatever reason.  Speaking of which, the following season at home against them on Boxing day, all three goals were decent but the Job one at the end to clinch it because of the second or two it took for Maccarone to head the ball across to him was nice.  Same sort of reason but earlier in that season, against the Mackems at home and Nemeths second goal (our third) when he kind of ran through on his own to score in front of the North Stand - I think it was just the sense of anticipation really. 03/04 season in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff.  The first 6 or 7 mins as a whole but I was partly hysterical throughout the entire game really when I think about it.  It was ours to lose after that start and unfortunately we seemed to experts in finding ways to do just that up until that point.  Same season, scoring twice in injury time maybe to get a 3-3 draw at home against Leicester and another win at Old Trafford, Juninho scoring twice with his head! and Job getting the winner after Man Utd came back to level.  How did Man Utd win so much back then when we used to give them a going over on a regular basis?  Weird, football, isn't it?  04/05 season, not a goal but Schwarzer saving that penalty at Man City in injury time on the last day of the season to get us into Europe again has to be right up there.  The following season has to be the European goals already mentioned above, the games as a whole were mental but scoring late on to win not just once but twice is about as crazy as it gets.  Humping Man Utd (again) and Chelsea was also a lot of fun. After that point things got darker and those amazing moments never seemed to come around, at least not for me anyway.  There were always odd games or whatever but we were in decline and you could feel it.  We had some good games under Mowbray and obviously we were in the hunt a couple of times during seasons but we always fell away.  I think you're probably waiting until the 14/15 season for some more great moments - Leadbitter's freekick at Huddersfield was fantastic, Bamford's goal at Derby and the own goal at Norwich, the play off games against Brentford.  I stopped going away from home by this point though so most of those weren't experienced in the same way, the home play off game of course was though.  Following season, both games against Brighton had goals which got me going and against Derby over Xmas with the two goals in two minutes.  Nugent against Hull and Forshaw against Reading, mental. Probably loads I've missed out as well.  I think I just enjoy us scoring goals in any circumstances 😀
    • In order of age: 1. Ravenelli's in the FA cup quarterfinal that guarnteed we were into our first ever FA cup semi. 2. Zenden's penalty in the league cup final 3. Nugent's goal against Hull
