Harry could do his team a world of good by announcing that he's staying with Spurs for the long-term. I think Tottenham went through a good run in the beginning of the season because of their fantastic response to early season losses. As rumors and speculation percolate, the Tottenham squad cannot help but wonder if their leader will not be there next season. Players want to be part of a successful long-term project and with chance of Harry not being their next season, their motivation to play for next season has dwindled.

The main problem with the spurs side through out the season has been our left back, Ekotto. He seems to switch off at vital moments and looking back at previous losses his positional play has cost us against the big teams. Although Arsenal played very well against us he cost us at least 3 goals. He was asleep from a throwing against Man U and also played half the stoke team on side the other night. Not good enough for a team that should be pushing for trophies in the next couple of years. We'll need a bit of luck tomorrow but I think we can win. Chelsea defence is worse than ours. COME ON THE SPURS

Well Harry could stop a lot of this speculation by refusing to answer questions about the England job, rather than seemingly answering. And yeah Parker is looking a little bit tired. But unsurprising as apart from his 1 match suspension I can't recall him missing a match. If he's looking tired why is Sandro or Livermore not playing instead?? And why has Harry not recognised that we were at our best earlier in the season when we were playing with speed and width? In recent weeks Lennon has been injured (again), yet he keeps playing midfielders who aren't wide men on the right instead who wander in field all the time thus losing the width. Additionally Harry also seems to have instructed Bale to do the same - he's rarely on the left wing these days. And why are our set pieces so poor?? I think we've had well over a hundred corners since we scored from one, and I don't think we've scored from a free kick this season, and i can't remember us scoring direct from a free kick last season either. Why do we not practice them?????????????

Spurs need leaders. Its unacceptable that the team accept they have had a run of bad games. Teams such as Manu, City, Arsenal and Chelsea, pick themselves up quickly after a blip. Those are title qualities. Spurs sadly in my opinion have gone back into their old ways--cannot win anything, won't succeed mode. It is psychological and a mentally that needs to change. Success is being prepared mentally and skillfully. Spurs could have won matches they lost if only there was more nouse about their play. They need to improve defensively and in the final third where a lot of their attacks peter out.

Jamie, if confidence is sooo important how come low on confidence Arsenal beat high on confidence Spurs. That's a cliche'd opinion. It's not confidence. They're not babies. Spurs have been unbalanced since Lennon was injured forcing players to play out of position. Whilst they should be able to cope with this ordinarily they can't because of the pace Lennon provides. When Spurs attack they go down both sides at speed. Without Lennon this balance is gone. There's the problem.

If spurs have lennon playing i think they will win, the pace of lennon and bale on both wings will tear chelsea apart. Also lennon brings the balance back to the side, spurs need to get back to the same team that went on the winning streak with ade up top and vdv playing behind him also.

I think Chelsea has a edge over spurs in this match. The record suggests that and moreover match being played at the bridge and moreover spurs are quite low on confidence going into the match. So chelsea being slight favorites in this match. Although Ivanovic will be a huge loss, but getting terry back for the match will a very good news for the blues. Chelsea look much solid at the back with terry in the team rather when he is absent. I also want RDM to show some postivity in picking the team, The Team he picked at Eithad was very defensive minded and he should play Danny along with drogba in place of Torres. I think the match will be decided on how many goals the blues will concede as I believe blues can score 2 or more in this match as spurs are also not very strong defensively. So it all comes to the defence of both teams on how they perform on that particular day.
