Challenge Spurs™ - It's a Grand Old Game

Everton at home on Sunday. We'll have to improve on the Blackburn performance although not by much judging by their loss at Wigan last time out.

With West Ham away and Man Utd at home to follow, we need to avoid a dip in our fortunes and get at least 6 points (7 would be nice) out of the next 3 games. Yes, I'm thinking Utd (and Berbatov) will do us over like they always do every sodding season.

13 points thus far. Another 15 or so would do me fine. Modric is still out, which is my main concern. Huddlestone needs to step up and continue his good form and Lennon has to keep on tearing the opposition a new one. I know how to talk up a match, don't I?

Traditionally, we've always tonked Everton or done fairly well at the Lane, but not last time out so here's to Bent re-discovering his goal-scoring (he's on a drought at the minute) and Pav continuing his rich form.

We've yet to havea block-buster Prem performance. I'm getting greedy I know, but would like to see us dominate and boss and bully a team, and take them apart. Would I be stretching the electisity of hope if I also asked for Bentley to put in a good performance?

I'm going for a 2-1 win for us. Not total football. Loads of effort and the odd scary moment, but we'll do just about enough to get the points.

Cant see this game being anything other than a draw. Same goes for the West Ham game. Score draw there and then defeat against Utd. That means 2 points from 9. Relegation form.

Doubt this will be the blockbuster performance spooks. 1-1 or we'll nick it 2-1 or they're nick it 2-1.

Hows that for a committed prediction?

The sooner Modric is back the better, but Hudd can do a perfect job for us. Depends on who is selected to do the donkey work in the midfield. Jenas over Zokora any day of the week by the way. At least Jenas has end product (on occasion).

6 points every 4 games is my mantra. We have 6 from 3 so anything from this game is a bonus. i think we'll get 3.

Utd at the Lane. 1 point minimum, about time we got 3. Tevez last year was gutting, Anderson prancing around.

So this year = Fuck you Berbatov.

To steal a line. That's how we roll.
