I have a hard time fathoming the optimistic, "With this lineup we should have more than enough to beat them"-style Spurs fan. Nothing wrong with it, just so completely alien to me. We can- and do- lose to anybody and everybody, depending on- dunno- the phase of the moon perhaps? Confidence + Tottenham have never- and will never- go together in my book. We lost to Genk.

As far as Sunday goes I have zero confidence we'll get a win. Zero. Perhaps we will- but I'm not "confident" we will. I could more see a back-to-earth, catastrophic defeat than a solid victory.

Oh and yes, I am fun at parties.
Ridiculous. We're going to absolutely smash them and I'll have you know I will hold on to this optimism until about 10 seconds before kickoff.

Sadly, we can no longer win the title (we can get 76 points but new PL head-to-head rule means it wouldn't be enough), but it will still be nice to get top 4 and win the FA Cup + Champions League.

Fighting on so many fronts late in the season is just great, let's get off to a good start after the short break!

If it is to be called off then you’d think they will announce it soon, ie. before 9am. In the pre-Mourinho times I would expect the game to go ahead, but if he wants some more rest ahead of Wednesday and has a sniff of the game being postponed, I think he will push for it.

The weather in Birmingham looks decent on the trusty iPhone weather app. Should be game on.

Think so but still performing as Slade with only Dave Hill from the original group. Heard on the radio recently that Don Powell (original drummer) was sacked by Hill.

How modern is that.

Before yesterday, Villa were joint with Norwich for the most goals conceded in the league...47.

If we can shut down Grealish, I think we'll certainly find enough chances to secure a win.

They leak goals. Enter Tottenham Hotspur to sort that one out
