    Agreed, his free kick in the playoff final was dire, etc.

    Nath, their team isn't Premier League standard, it's quite obvious and it's not a direct insult to you or even the club. If you think they'll stay up that's fine and no one begrudges you that opinion. Calm down.

    Thought Silva was quite handy last night myself. Tevez is annoying when he's not running hot (shoots from everywhere), SWP was completely hopeless, Micah was even worse, GB was non-existant and frankly, not needed if de Jong and Yaya are playing. Assuming Boateng recovers shortly and Kolarov's ankle is okay, this is the side I'd be playing.

    Hart/Given (not fussed at this point, Hart has to stay after that though)

    Boateng-Kolo-Kompany-Kolarov

    Robinho/Johnson-Yaya-de Jong-Silva

    Balotelli/Adebayor-Tevez
    I think that side is solid, quite potent going forward and far more balanced. I know, I know, Robinho, but say what you will he was superb for us two seasons ago and has amazing talent, I don't think he should be discarded.

    Yeah, playing Yaya, De Jong and Barry was pretty painful. Even the Netherlands only opted for two spoilers. And Spurs still absolutely ran the midfield. I can see Silva or Johnson being given a creative centre-midfield role with Tevez or Adebayor up front.

    Ha, what? Get down from your high horse Nath. I have seen them play plenty in the last 18 months, thanks. It's one thing to look good (and they didn't look any better than that) in the Championship and quite another to sustain yourselves through a whole season in the Prem. They've barely strengthened their squad, which would maybe be okay if they had won the title last year, but they didn't, they won the play-offs. A side that finished 21 points behind West Brom.

    We've seen it all before - if a side that wins the play-offs doesn't strengthen, they face a long winter.

    Of course, you could be right and they might stay up but to act so smug because they won one game is a dangerous game, maybe I'll dig your post up when they're getting tonked in November

    Their manager doesn't even think they'll stay up.

    Barry looked like he had lead boots on yesterday. Was very sluggish around the midfield from what I saw on MOTD. Has Boateng played a lot at rb? Always thought we either player left or center

    Spurs ran the midfield because none of Barry, Yaya or de Jong play forward of halfway and hence Modric and co. could run from center and move the ball forward. They countered superbly thanks to us playing a horrible RB and an okay RB at LB. We were poor all over the park bar Kompany and Hart afaic. I agree that Johnno changed the game. Should be playing every game unless Silva is playing directly in his position.

    Was capable of hitting the odd superb free kick up here as well, didn't mean he wasn't a dire footballer.

    He might score, but we're going to concede a few tonight. Jesus Christ our defence.

    Hmm, slightly better than expected. Was anticipating seeing Frimpong and Nordtveit in there. Could be vitstl. A few goals in this one I'd imagine.

    Van Persie, Cesc and Theo on the bench? Or have they all missed out entirely?

    A chest infection ffs. Softer than sitting out a game with a yeast infection.
