"But the dreamiest of them all last night was Eriksen. The free-kick spent the middle 70% of its trajectory defying physics, before hitting an absolute postage stamp of a spot where post and crossbar meet in happy union; the second goal was an absurd triumph for ‘90s Grolsch drinkers the world over, as he wisely opted not to rush these things, but took two or three extra strides before wrong-footing the ‘keeper. Insanely good finishing, the sort that makes me want to sire a daughter pronto just so that I can offer her hand to him in marriage pronto."

A small excerpt from the All Action No Plot's segment on the right there. It's brilliant writing, everyone should give it a read, Spurs and non-Spurs fans alike.

It's genius I love his style.

He is a great wordsmith with a nice sense of humour! He also wrote a book called Spurs Cult Heroes which had the support of Gary Mabbutt at the launch (who was there to sign copies). Here's a brief description on ESPN, so now you now what to wish for if anyone asks you...

I think the West Brom game is going to say a lot about our season. We tend to struggle against these lower mid-table teams. Perhaps a lack of motivation?

But yeah this is the type of game we need to be winning if we even have a remote chances of making the top 4.

Here's my team:

Lloris
Walker Dier Vert Rose
Stambouli Dembele
Lamela Eriksen Chadli
Kane

Hey everyone......very rarely comment on here but check the site before/after every fixture.I have to say I'm very optimistic about this season - especially after the start and turmoil we had over the past couple seasons. Great to see a coach who is giving everyone a chance and creating a team!
+1
We've had one League Cup winning Dane in the past, when Allan Nielsen was a last minute match winner and named MotM in the 1999 final. Let's hope we've got another one coming now in Eriksen!

We've previously been in 7 League Cup finals and won four of them:
1971 2-0 win vs Aston Villa with a double by Martin Chivers
1973 1-0 win vs Norwich with a Ralph Coates goal
1982 1-3 loss to Liverpool after Steve Archibald put us ahead early on and Ronnie Whelan equalised a couple of minutes before time. Then Ian Rush and Whelan both scored in the 2nd half of extra time. One of my worst football memories as a kid, as most of my mates were Liverpool supporters.
1999 1-0 win vs Leicester from the Allan Nielsen goal. We had Justin Edinburgh sent off after he smacked Robbie Savage one.
2002 1-2 loss to Blackburn after Brad Friedel had a MotM performance for them and Teddy Sheringham was robbed of a penalty. Christian Ziege scored our goal. On our way to the final we hammered Bolton 6-0 in the QF and beat Chelsea 6-3 on agg in the semis incl the memorable 5-1 home win.
2008 2-1 win vs Chelsea. Drogba put Chelsea ahead but we equalised through Berbatov. But it was Jonathan Woodgate's big game and he became the match-winner in extra time to give us our last trophy.
2009 We lost on penalties to Man United, after Jamie O'Hara and David Bentley missed theirs. Corluka scored his but United scored four straight.

PS. For fans of All Action No Plot, there is a new amusing piece in the column on the right..

+3
PS. Of course in 1982 we were in THREE Wembley finals as we also got there in the FA Cup vs QPR. The first match ended 1-1 after extra time while we won the replay 1-0 after a Glenn Hoddle penalty. He was also the goal scorer in the first game. That way we defended our famous 1981 FA Cup win.

Robbie Savage is a wnker.
How good was Dembele last night btw?

That was the best I have seen him in ages.
+3
Dembele ran the show. Created space in midfield when it wasn't there, held up the ball and passed it successfully under pressure and pressed high to force opponents into making mistakes. That's all expected from Dembele, but the thing I liked is that he's actually passing the ball a lot quicker and even attempted a couple of one-twos in the game. If Dembele can add that to his game, he'll be a great option at CAM when we need to rest Eriksen. There was a noticeable difference to our game once him and Lamela came off, as these two were the most effective in their pressing game and tackling higher up.
+3
I'd like to see more of that Dembele/Lamela combo! Certainly, when Dembele is at his best he is simply outstanding!
+2
They were both like terriers when we lost the ball!
+2
Dembele was fantastic. I think we might do well to play him in the no.10 role against the big teams. Provides a bit more steel in midfield. Of course, that means Eriksen is pushed out wide, but, as we have seen this season he is much more hard working so I think he will be okay in terms of defensive duties.
+1
Eriksen out wide is never the best idea unfortunately, but I would like to maybe see Dembele in the 10 position when Eriksen is rested.

I can't stop watching it!

Hey guys, I was wondering how you would rate your players so far. The season has been one with ups and downs as far as I have noticed, with probably only Eriksen and perhaps Lloris as consistent performers. I'm no Spurs fan, but I do admire the club and the attacking philosophy you've upheld for decades, which is why I'm interested.

So, if any of you would be as kind to give your opinion on the most prominent of your players, perhaps on the coach and the course of the season too, I'd really appreciate it :)
+1
Harry Kane, since he started getting the lone striker spot, has definitely been up there with our most consistent performers.

Many people aren't too fond of Ryan Mason, however I think he is one of those players who when he plays, you don't notice him, but you sure as hell notice it when he doesn't. He really is becoming the silent engine in our attack.

I think for me, the biggest disappointment would be Adebayor. I think the guy had a real shot, coming off a stellar comeback season under Sherwood, so make his mark. But he has been so off its not even funny. 2 goals and 1 assist in all competition. Dismal for a striker of his wages and calibre that we all know he has. And it is the difference between him and Soldado. When Soldado is on that pitch, he may be misfiring, but by god he works hard to contribute. I watch Adebayor, and he is not in sync with the team at all.

The rest I think have been up and down with their consistency. I think Lamela will absolutely come out of his shell new the end of this season and into next season. Townsend is finding his uses, and if Dembele keeps playing like he did against Chelsea and Sheffield, he will prove invaluable. Still some holes to plug and nails to take out in the squad, but all in all, considering my expectations for the coming season, I am a happy Tott.
+1
Have to give massive props to Lloris as well. He has been immense and hardly ever faulters.

Chadli has been the surprise package this season, didn't expect him to be one of the players carrying our team at times with important goals and assists.
+1
Verts?! He is class and is constantly making up for the mistakes of whoever is paired with him. He could get a job for Real or Barca in my opinion.
Eriksen also just class.
+1
Lloris has been our most consistent performer. There's been a few other big positives too but none as consistent as Lloris.
+3
On Pochettino - I think he's done fairly well. He inherited a squad that really wasn't his own so he had to work with what he had. In that light I think we've done reasonably well to implement his high-press, high-tempo philosophy. He's given chances to the likes of Mason and Kane and they have done well.

We've reached a cup final after 6 years so there is some tangible product of the hard work. One thing I would want to point out is the higher fitness levels of the team. The double training sessions are really paying off. Testament to that is the number of late goals we've managed to school this season.
+1


+1
well done guys, good luck in the final!
+2
So, tickets for the final, how do we get them? Chelsea got 31,000 tix I believe.
+1
I so guttered I live In NZ, hope some of you local based users can get along! I'll be decked out in my gear on March the 1st, face glued to the screen! I'm curious how much are tickets?
+2
Not sure, the Wembley website just says tickets will be given to the club once final is announced. Nothing on spurs site yet, still says were away to QPR on March 1st.
My sister works for Chelsea TV so if can't get tickets....may get some in the Chelsea end :/
+2
Just spoken to my season ticket holding friend.

Sounds like unless you're a member or season ticket holder and have masses of loyalty points (gained purely by going to games - crappier games gets more points) then there is no chance of getting tickets. Unless you wait for them to appear on stub hub and have a few hundred kicking about.
There is NO general sale for tickets at all.
😞
+1
Good luck finding a ticket to the locals here. If that doesn't go down as well as hoped, tinychat's the next best thing :D
+2
We got the same number of tickets as Chelsea. Like always, it's the ST holders who get in first. More info here:
