Keep it understated

The big game is getting closer and unlike Tottenham have done so far, I'd be pleased if we kept a nice low profile before Sunday. I think it's a cunning move to let the attention stay focused on the spuds, Keane and his fellow scummers can take the spot light, let's leave them to it. The more the spuds big up their own chances, the more the pressure will be on them, and that's great for us no doubt.

Despite all 19 other Premiership clubs having no doubts over the legality of the Arshavin deal, it seems Steve Coppell knows better, I wonder if he's a psychic or whether he's just mouthing off without engaging the old grey cells. Arseblog hits the nail on the head, maybe Mr Coppell is just a very bitter old man.

Sunday's game is huge, we really need the three points and the scum will be right up for it. We'll need to weather the inevitable early storm, so it will be a good test of our slightly more solid defence. We need all our big guns firing, Ade needs to start working as hard as he used to, while the youngsters in midfield will need to be up for a fight. Diaby's absence is a big loss after his sterling performance last week, while I can't see Arshavin starting but don't rule out him being used as a game changing substitute. Come on you reds!

Feeling a bit nervous about this one, 1979.

I think we need to start with 4-5-1, which transforms to 4-3-3 when we surge forward in possession.

No matter which formation, we need all of our players grafting and pestering Sp*rs players when they have the ball to force errors from them.

I'll be elated with a win, but I'd really like to see a proper tonking delivered by our lads to mollify the angst I still feel over the 4-4 match at the Grove.

We have a good record in the league at Shite Hart Lane. If Ade plays well, we will win.

We've drawn the games we have in the last few months because Ade hasn't turned up.

I'm hoping he gives us a proper performance in the game that counts. He certainly has the form against them.

If Ade can just get himself planted in the box a bit more often, I believe he will get more chances to score.

He's been fannying about on the flanks and outside the 18 too often lately for my liking.
