If we’re going to prolong our EL adventure we can hardly be selective about our opponents. We can’t be that selective with our line-ups either. Full strength will be a requirement. Will momentum claim glory against the strain of a congested calender and the intensity that accompanies ambition? Every game is a cup final now. You want Tottenham to be an all conquering side? To compete with the best? Then this is the life we have to accept.

Sink or swim. Or walk on water.

Ladies and gentlemen, I think March is going to be pretty decent. Remember when November was meant to be defining? Looks like by the time April rolls in we’ll pretty much know what type of end of season party we might be looking to book. We’ve even bagged three consecutive Monday night kick-offs on the trot thanks to our progression. That’s three successive games where our competitors will have already played the weekend before. What a test of pressure and mindset. Hedonistic.

And to think some of us were ready to sacrifice this cup. Could so easily have been Reading away.
