I was obviously joking in the first instance.The premier League allowed that though. Can't see them allowing us to block away fans,unless we come up with a good reason. Maybe get health &safety to look at it...
I was obviously joking in the first instance.
I do think all the players they didn't have when the game was due should be made to sit out this one.
They clearly wanted it off because of AFCON, injuries and suspensions.
Shouldn't affect us, not our fault a game scheduled before the window opened was postponed for 5 solid months because of them.
I think we'd have beaten them when we were due to play them so maybe we're no better off and no worse off.But karma has come back to bite them… they will be without Tierney, Tomiyasu and likely Partey as well. Meanwhile we will have Sonny, Bentancur and Kulu, none of whom would’ve played the scheduled fixture. As a Spurs fan, in hindsight I am absolutely delighted they bottled the game.

We've got some great people in our team, taking time out for these things
