  1. Peter Quinn says:

    No Benteke for Villa, but it still should be a good match. It’s a safe bet there will be goals in this one.

  2. jtm371 says:

    more pressure on Spurs because of the money they spent and the pursuit of one of the top four places.they need to make a statement after the egg they laid at home vs the Hammers.

  3. Smokey Bacon says:

    Rebecca is smokin’

    That is all.

  4. Balboa77 says:

    Classy Spud supporters. Hope that idiot that threw the smoke gets an assult charge.

  5. Guy says:

    Nice play by Dust’s favorite Spur. ;-)

  6. Smokey Bacon says:

    What a keeper this Guzan lad is. Team USA is fortunate to have two top class keepers. Guzan looks the better of the two for me.

  7. Georgie says:

    Nice play acting from Walker.

  8. jtm371 says:

    nice statement by Spurs after the Hammers debacle.all 3 points going back to WHL.

  9. Smokey Bacon says:

    Villa’s all out attacking style did them in. Up front they are top 4 material but the defense says bottom 3.

  10. Guy says:

    Villa simply have had no answer for Townsend all day.

  11. Dust says:

    Good result, should’ve been 3/4 with Paulinho mid and Holtby hesitation.

    No Erkisen, Lamela, Capoue, Chadli.

    Vlad played well. Soldado’s touch was sublime.

    30 games left & 3 points off 1st.

    CFC man city means dropped points next week for someone while we play hull.
    West Brom should get a draw at LFC.

    Palace may as well forfeit next week and go to Spain.

    So much football left any melt suggesting they know the top 4 let alone the dinner of BPL probably supports Farsenal.
