I lamented when this went to reply but it might be coming at a good time to get some structure in the team and confidence ahead of what is a simply must win next two Permiership games. And despite the teams we are facing, neither of them are going to be easy given our form and where we are currently.

What sort of attendance do we think we'll have for this match? I think blocks 501 to 519ish haven't been open for sale. I like the cup replays cos they are cheap and a chance to get to another game without breaking the bank.

It can be A confidence builder if they come at it right and we get a good side out. Also opportunities for Tanganga again and maybe Parrott at some point.

Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury concerns ahead of our FA Cup third round replay against Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening (8.05pm).

Ben Davies (ankle), Hugo Lloris (elbow) and Tanguy Ndombele (hip) all continue their rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, Harry Kane (hamstring) and Moussa Sissoko (knee) are both now recovering following surgery.

Jose hinted in his pre-match press conference that Toby Alderweireld, who has started each of Jose's 13 matches and captained the team against Liverpool, may be rested.

Tottenham head coach Jose Mourinho on Christian Eriksen: "He plays tomorrow [against Middlesbrough] but if you ask me if I think this is the best Christian Eriksen, I have to be honest and say no.
"I know clearly that a player in his situation... doesn't perform at the highest level. I can also say he's helping us."

Just looking at the weather for tomorrow does anyone reckon there is a chance the game could be postponed? BBC are predicting 40 + mph winds are predicted afternoon up until 9pm.

No idea if a postponement is possible, but if goes ahead will be interesting with the FA Cup beach ball.

Oh yeah, there's a match tonight isn't there? And there was me thinking I was getting cracking with my Better Call Saul boxset.

Isn't it a freebie for ST holders?
If so, that should put it around 38,000 outright at least. Add in the GS tickets etc. and I'd reckon at around 47,000 tonight.

EDIT: All the above being bollocks, I'd go with 40,000 max tonight

Wife this morning: "Really want to finish watching Saving Private Ryan tonight (she hasn't seen it), but it's also catch up on 24 Hours in Police Custody"
Me: "Erm.... football tonight"

Bloody frustrating isn't it? I'll be even more pissed off if Lo Celso gets left out again. I've got a free Specsaver voucher knocking about here somewhere - think I'll send it Jose.

Yeah, maybe I misread the original article on the club site and it said it would automatically purchase the match ticket, not free...
You have two options, either you can sign up to automatic purchase and they charge you the day it goes on sale or you can just purchase your seat which is reserved for a period of time. No cup 'freebies' on the Season Tickets anymore

Nop. I'm allowed to buy 6 though.

Mate just told me he's going, got a family ticket two adults and two children £40 which sounds pretty damn reasonable to me.
It'll be a strong side again tonight this will be high on José's priority list.
