Your mission (should you decide to accept it)
Let battle commence It’s not so much that tonight’s game is a dead rubber it’s about putting in a performance to keep confidence high. A 5-0 victory is unlikely, albeit not impossible (stranger things have happened) however it’s the manner in which we meet the challenge that is going to be vital. Let’s not forget the stadium will be full of supporters who deserve to see a gallant effort. The players who have raised their game in the League will, in all probability see a few changes. Whoever wears the red shirt tonight will know that they are up against it but let’s get behind them. Sometimes when you have nothing to lose you have everything to gain. Going out on our shields will also maintain the positive feeling as we seek to further cement our ECL spot. Now I won’t pretend that catching Sp*rs is not a delicious thought but we have to be mindful of Chelsea as well. Fourth or third are achievable so we need to resist the temptation to be too consumed with finishing above our fellow Londoners. Those around us face games against stoke at home and Everton away, and nothing can be taken for granted about those clashes. By Monday of next week we should be going into our home game knowing exactly where we are at and let’s not forget that a win against Newcastle keeps them at arms length; after all the talk of Newcastle collapsing they are still hanging in there. But tonight it’s all about the Champions League; our dire performance in the first leg has put us in this situation but let’s enjoy the game, let’s get behind the team and revel in our underdog status, and if we go down fighting let’s take it on the chin, and gird our loins for the visit of the Geordies.
