Bloody horrible weather just the sort of weather to sap your enthusiasm unless you have something really important to play for, we have that something and Watford don't so I am even more confident of a win than I was before.

I really wish you hadn't said that :( ;)

They were absolutely pathetic at Anfield a few weeks ago and let that horrible little **** score four goals without putting up too much resistance. Let's hope they've all got their sun cream and sandals out already. We've got a serious job to do tonight. Looks like the weather conditions are going to be bloody atrocious.

Cannot lose, easiest opposition we could possibly play

Go to the bookmakers and put every single penny you can find on a Spurs win

This is Tottenham, what could possibly go wrong?

I think they'll be a lot of empty seats tonight unfortunately. Hope tonight is the night Harry decides to start his end of season purple patch!

Early goal vital. Don't want to be going into the break level or worse.
For what it's worth I never want to go into the break level or worse;)

This game is as easy as it gets and if we'd been playing it at 3 o'clock in mid February we'd all recognise that fact, it's not the team and it's not the match it's the knee knocking nervousness of the the fans that's causing them to worry.
I wouldn't want to be in Watford's shoes having to play Spurs in these circumstances, our team will be really fired up for this, they will be so determined to take this opportunity.
3rd is in our own hands with four games to go, how good is that!
