Spurs going along very well again. 

Honestly - we're completely under the radar. There's a lot of negativity around the club. The lack of signings, the continuing to play at Wembley, a ridiculous injury list. Yet we are above this new rejuvenated Arsenal, only three points behind the best Liverpool team of all time etc. We haven't really played that well this season, yet we've been churning out results.

Put it this way - we've played 7 away games this season, winning 6 of them. We've only played 4 at home, two of them being City and Liverpool, and our next one is Chelsea. We're in a bit of a false position in the sense that we actually have a lot of winnable home games to come later in the season. We've managed to do this despite having major injuries to a lot of our best players. We've had Eriksen, Alli, Vertonghen, now Dier, Rose etc. out for multiple games.

Yesterday was a prime example of being able to win when a) not at our best and b) having half a team out injured. Can't be bothered to go into the details of the match too much as I'm sure people have seen it, but just several points. Glad to see Lloris make a positive contribution to a win as he's had a difficult season. Kane was brilliant yesterday off the ball as well as on it. He's critical to how we play. Lamela was exceptional again. He's been our best player this season and let's hope it keeps going.

On the flip side Kieran Trippier is absolutely diabolical defensively. Sooner or later people are going to wise up to how many goals he costs us. Everything comes down his side and in behind him. Felt so sorry for Foyth yesterday, had a really good game bar the pens. Trippier just sold him down the river for the first one and the second was pretty soft. Fortunate with the disallowed goal although the players heard the whistle and slowed down a bit so always difficult to know what would have happened in real speed. 

Delighted with the three points and now another tricky away game at Palace next weekend. COYS

I think what's helped you go under the radar is that the football hasn't been as 'aesthetically pleasing' as previous seasons. Watching the first half against Wolves was like watching Spurs of the last three seasons, yet you have picked up more points this season than before. The Champions League talk is a massive media overreaction given how difficult the league is.

Credit to Wolves though for not giving up completely at half time in this fixture. Imagine the scenes if they had scored near the end. If alcohol was in the stand everybody would have been covered.

I can see Spurs beating us by the odd goal based on recent performances. I just can't figure out if it will be 1-0, 2-1 or 3-2.
