Woolwich Vs. Tottenham Hotspur
The second leg is tomorrow and the winners get the honor of playing Chavski at Cardiff towards the end of next month and would be our first cup final since 2001. We have not made life easy for ourselves after surrendering a 2-0 lead at White Hart Lane last week. As it current stands the scum would go through on away goals so we have to score.
This will at least force Jol to not play the negativity card as we will have to attack. You could see our game plan was to let them have the ball in their own half last week and from that position Fabregas murdered us with Huddlestone or Zokora having no answer to his play from midfield. Fabregas will likely be rested tomorrow but Gilberto will return looking to break up our attacks from the middle and to stop the forward runs of JJ.
Berbatov is injured so I am not sure who will line up with Defoe. Keane has stacks of ability but can be very frustrating at times. He was good up front with Mido on Saturday but playing two short men will make the long diagonal ball from Dawson redundent. Mido is the other option but he is getting worse and worse and has now got Raziakitis with his inability to jump for high balls. Of course he could be a hero come final whistle tomorrow and we should back any team that is put on at the cradle of filth tomorrow.
Spurs can beat the old enemy and we must arrive tomorrow with the right attitude. Too often in away games we have gone looking for a point. A 0-0 will be no good tomorrow and we have to score. We can do it, we just have to believe.
