I always read the flashscores match previews, sometimes they are garbage and make no sense but sometimes they have some nice little facts -

Would be nice to go away and not give the opposition a goal head start. I do think that if we have to start chasing this game we will come unstuck with their attackers.

I’m concerned about set pieces. They’ve got a lot of tall players who are good in the air. And their pace down the flanks worries me.
I’m hoping they’re knackered from last night, Poch hasn’t had time to prepare them properly and he picks the Belgian defenders and Aurier. And Kane shits his pants and has to be subbed.
Preparation. Or lack there of.

It seems we struggle against teams who have done their homework on us. Hopefully Spurs have not been able to focus too much on the weekend's game 🤞

Morning sleepheads, today's the day. Will we keep our away streak going? Who's going to the game?Who's watching it live? Any late injury news overnight?

So many questions. Can't wait to watch this one live!(online)

I'm going. Can't wait! Drive home from work at Heathrow in about an hour, sleep for a bit, get my lad in the car, drive back to Heathrow, park up and chill out on the underground for an hour.

Lucky barstool! Envious! Enjoy the atmosphere and make some noise! Expect nothing less than you to have no voice left come Sunday!

Well after the magnificent result last weekend, a very very tricky game awaits this afternoon with the trip to Tottenham. While we always hoped our team would perform this season, there is arguably a few away games we would have expected to struggle in when we first viewed the season's fixtures. However the remarkable job the players and management team are doing, says a lot that we actually do not travel today EXPECTING to lose. Of course Spurs seem to have lost their way somewhat, which gives us hope of certainly not a drubbing. Anything can happen of course over 90 minutes, but I'm certain of one thing, and that is CWAK will have the players well organised as ever, and we're going for a game, not just to make up the numbers....

Anyway....

Any team news? :)

Egan seemingly ok after a slight knock?

A couple others carrying knocks?

Mousset today a start?

Spurs are on a run of 4 PL games without a win. Their worst run in a while. Obviously we remain unbeaten away. This is a very hard game to call. With the quality in their side I can't see a 1-0 smash and grab for us, and 2-1 feels more realistic in favour of the home side. However, I'll stick my neck out and say a deserved 1-1 draw.

Travel safe Blades.

Hoping for a draw ( a win away at Tottenham would be mind-blowing even in their current form) but ok with a loss as long as it's blown out of the water.

If we can go through the whole season with our losses only being by no more than 1 goal then it should minimise our total number of losses and put us in a good spot come the end of the season.

2-1 to Spurs

Surely Deli Alli can't get away with another handball in the penalty area. Doesn't worry me otherwise, prima-donna.

Hope Aurier plays. No worries about their midfield.

Baldock v Rose will be eventful, back a sending off in fact! Hope Davies plays instead.

They really are poor as a defensive unit. Shame Lloris isn't fit to play.

Cut out the source to Kane. Cut down Son's space somehow.

Left side is their strength.

Spurs like winning. Keep them out for the first half and let the stadium pressure ramp up. We must have more in our tanks too.

What great days to be Blades. Bring it on W,D or L. Mancs next.

Note: 5 Live commentary game.

Will the game go ahead? Loads of trains have been cancelled this morning

I fear we might be on the end of a tanking today. They are going to do it to someone and the signs are slightly ominous.

Potch seems to have a decent level of respect for us so fully expect him to have done his home work however the club media team are using an image of Regan Slater on their tweets so they clearly haven’t

It's this level off pessimism which has kept me sane as a United fan for the last 40 years! I didn't accept promotion until I saw the 2019/20 Premier League table for the first time.
