With the first North London Derby

of the season looming up large this weekend, not particularly looking forward to it. It is a Prem fixture that Spurs have a dreadful record in, last win at the Emirates was in 2010, nine games ago, and previous to that the only other Prem win, in this fixture, was 26 Prem games ago in 1993. Two wins at our biggest rivals in nearly 30 seasons. Awful statistic, which goes along with most of our other away fixtures at Chelsea, Man United and Liverpool in the Prem era, barely half a dozen wins I suspect in nearly 120 away games at those venues.

I suspect tomorrow, it will be another defeat, probably something like 3-0 or maybe a narrow defeat, holding them out until the 88th minute and then dropping a clanger at the back to gift them a late goal. It happens so many times in these sort of games.

I think in all probability Spurs will need to get to the International Break, regroup afterwards, and see where it takes us. Palace, Leicester, Southampton, Brighton and Watford next few fixtures, vital that at least four of those games are won, if not all.

I see this will be a season of major transition, defence will be completely revamped this time next year, and it could be a roller coaster ride, with a very unsettled side being fielded most matches. Gloomy outlook I know, but the Close season Transfer sagas have been a complete mess up with players injured, players not ready, when it was screaming out for two or three players to be purchased that would slot straight into the first XI from the off.

It is what it is though, too late now to change anything, so let`s see where it takes us this side of Xmas, at least there are a few decent CL games to look forward to.

I wonder if he will throw Lo Celso in?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Very much doubt it. I reckon he will go with the same sissoko, winks with lamela behind.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Behind Kane I mean
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Eriksen will start.
Sissoko will have to play RB.
So good chance Lo Celso will start, or play second half.
Hope fully Vertonghen starts too.
In which case I say we have a decent chance to win or get a draw.

Sol Campbell in the studio for our game later?! WTF?! I'm sorry but that is unacceptable from Sky.

If you have to ask that question then I worry for you

It’s really not a hard question to answer. Surely you’re not that incapable?

He played for both clubs & they invited him on to discuss the game and to discuss his move from Spurs to Arsenal.

What’s the issue?

Yea, perhaps worrying about you was abit over the top. I don't know you so I shouldn't worry about you. But clearly, you are not very clever.

Says the person unable to answer the question twice...

I don't think you're in a position to be insulting other people's intelligence.

Not trying to be rude, but you do come across as a bit dim.

You are asking why Spurs fans may think its unreasonable for Sol Campbell to be on the panel for a NLD. You also seem reliant on an answer to understand why. Let's leave it where it is and we can both go off thinking what we want

I'm happy to draw a line under this (futile) dispute, and I understand why Spurs fans would personally not like to see Sol talking about the game, but all I'm getting at is he's someone who's had a successful career playing for both clubs. I'm sure it was also an opportunity to ask for more details about the controversial move. So why would you expect Sky to not have him on?

I promise you, most Spurs fans will turn it off or down until the game starts due to the fact he is on. He hates our club and our fans and we hate him more than anyone outside of our club can comprehend. Sky have stepped over the mark on this one.
