    That was the tactic that worked an absolute treat towards the end of last season in the Champions League and in the league. I wouldnt be surprised if we tried it again, but i think its more likely that will be the Plan B from the bench.

    We seem to be going from strength to strength in being rubbish right now, I wouldn't be too concerned if I were you.

    Despite the chronic list of injuries we have had, as well as a considerable drop in form at the end of 2011, to be level on points with a Manchester City who have been described nothing short of omnipotent, just goes to show how deep our quality is and the winning mentality built deep into the DNA of every single one of our first team squad players. Scholes has been a God send during January and has played his 'Larsson' role to perfection already.

    With players now coming back after injuries (so should be fresh in terms of fitness), if they can quickly find form, and the way our squad is normally geared up to hit the ground running from February through to April, I'm feeling very confident. If we can get clear at the top of the table, I would think City will find it very hard to knock us from the top. Even if City stay top until March, when squeeky bum time hits, I have no doubt that pressure will be too much for them.

    I think this year is one year too early for City .... abit like 1991 pre Cantona when we lost out to Leeds despite having had such a strong start to the season. But it will, be very good experience for them to build from.


    will take a point, but I think if we can get Nani, Rooney and Rio back into the side, then 3 points is a strong possibility.

    We get 3pts from this and I honestly think we'd be favourites for the title.

    And we're Manchester United. We have got decent records at both WHL and COMS.

    When was the last time Spurs beat us? Also, we just beat City at their own ground recently (it was in a different competition, but still point stands).

    How have all of you missed the obvious? Have none of you seen the weather forecast for the weekend? Remember last year? It's gonna snow fellas and it'll be the only game in the Prem cancelled and lo and behold Cole will be back for the rearranged game and it'll be wedged between the City game and something else and we'll feck up.

    Yeah, I remember last year they had a bunch of injuries - was scheduled for December, got moved to 1st of March, when all their lads were back and we had just been (or about to go to, can't remember) Liverpool away.

    Put it this way, it's done on the "advice" of the police, but trust me, Chelsea will have their say. Remember, they can use the "safety of the fans traveling to the ground" shite now.

    I wouldn't dismiss Longsden's comments just yet.

    Anyone heard anything about Lampard and Captain Leader Bottler?

    They might miss it too.

    When was the last time Spurs played this well and were third and only five points behind the leaders 23 games into the season?

    It is the only premier league match in London on a day London is forecast to get hit by snow, the Metropolitan Police doesn't take kindly to Western London become congested in adverse conditions when Londoners can barely drive when it rains moderately.

    I dont think it will affect the games , but anybody driving down might be in for a rough journey.
    Anybody driving down I would give plenty of extra time.

    i don't know, the last time they delayed a game, Chelsea I believe, the reason wasn't because of the game being impacted but travel for those going to the game.

    I am interested to see what happens between Rio and Terry if indeed both of them end up playing.

    true but that's because it's the actual game. I said sadly because of the debacle of FOX affiliates not showing the game but something else. Felt sorry for those who couldn't watch the game while I could. I guess I lucked out. Just found it strange and disappointing that in some areas of the country, they didn't view as showing the game as that important. Hence, some people got left out of that experience

    Terry will not be fit.
    He's out for 2-3 more weeks.

    So it's probably: Ivanovic - Luiz - Cahill - Bosingwa, other options are Ferreira and Bertrand.
