We travel to 'the smoke' (London) yet again at the ungodly hour of '5:26 bells' in the mornin for the '12:30 bells' kick off at Wembley v Sporz!
Wor record £21 million signin Miguel Almiron and on loan defender Antonio Barrica will NOT play az they are awaitin work pormits!
THE FRONT PAGE OF TODAY'S
After wor great win against Man City we face anothaa tough game and the good news for us---iz!---Harry Kane and Dele Alli will not be available for Sporz due to injury, az we attempt to win at Wembley for the forst time since 1955 (wor last FA Cup win!)
The 'magic' of playin at Wembley for 2 years haz not went doon well with Sporz fans, who had a 29,000 crowd v Wotfaad through the week---that's more than 60,000 empty seats, which must be some kind of a record---certainly in the Premyaa Leegue era, anyway!
The Toon fans, on the othaa hand quickly snapped up the 3,200 tickets available in the away end!
With the game a dinnaatime kick off for live telly (SKY) we expect anothaa low tornoot from the Sporz fans! (Tottenham iz on the othaa side of London and aboot an hour to an hour and a half's travel to Wembley from there!)
Hopefully we can reward 'the faithful' with anothaa 'gutsy' performance like last Tuesday's and pick up at least a point---wishful 'fink'in perhaps, but who ever thought that we could beat champions Man City after givin then a one goal start after 24 seconds!???
Rafa had warned wor very rich owner that failure to sign quality players in the transfor window would put wor safety in jepody and at last 'The Fat Controller' haz listened and put hiz hand in hiz pocket!
