FA cup Preview and Braga Goals.

The big game this weekend once again features Spurs as we take on the soon to be former champions at their place. It is a massive game and if Spurs can progresse either today or via a replay I can see us winning the thing. The one slight problem we have in front of us is the Chavs who have only lost to Barcelona at The Bridge in months and months.

Chelsea have a few injury problems and it is not known if Terry will play. If fully fit Terry controls the Chelsea back four and they rarely conceede more than one goal if any. However without him they look dodgy and it will be good to see Berbatov pulling the back four all over the place creating space for Lennon and Defoe. Defoe will start as Keane is injured. Keane is clearly the form striker out of the two so it is a big blow and Mr Offside now needs to prove himself again and score against one of the top clubs. It could work to our advantage though as Berbatov will drop deep leaving Defoe up top.

Another blow is that Robinson is out. His form was patchy earlier in the season but he is playing very well at the moment. A big game is needed from Cerny.

Supply to the forwards will be key in this game. If we can get the ball to Lennon and Berbatov we shall cause the Chavs all sorts of problems. However, to do this well, we need to control the midfield. Zokora and Tainio need to work very hard and if I see Ghaly anywhere near the team I will know we are in trouble!

Here are the Braga goals. No quicktime this time due to lack of bandwidth.

I suggest you read what I actually wrote.

I think you'll find I was around long before Harry was and usually provide the goals edited and in quicktime for download. I have run out of bandwidth so its Youtube for these.

I love purs more than anything and always have optimism before any game, but sadly I just can't see us gettinga result today. I would love to be proved wrong but Chelsea are so strong at the bridge and our defence has been a bit leaky this season. I wonder who will be captain today as all 3 captains are out. I reckon Dawson should get the nod.
I think we will tire a lot today. Was a really short gap between this early kick off and our very late Thursday kick off so all this goes in Chelseas favour.
Hopefully we will put on a good showing today though whatever the result. COYS!

Stop the infighting, spurs bloggers! You're both great in your own ways. We should instead concentrate our hatred against the Russian scum this afternoon!

Really hope Jol plays Lennon on the right today. We have to get bhind their defence and Lennon is too predictable on the left. I have this gut instinct that Zokora is going to have a cracker today. You heard it here first!

What a game. Again.

It's difficult knowing a 2-goal lead is meaningless. Whoever the opposition.

But what football we are playing. Again. And what goals.

We need whoever / whatever to shut games down. And Mido should never wear the shirt again.

Otherwise,, this has been the best fortnight in North London since the days of Terry.

Thanks MJ.
