Imo whatever line up we employ it won't work for two very basic reasons.
1. Man for man Spurs have better players in virtually every position
2 Jose Mourinho is a far more astute tactician and manager than David Moyes.
If we keep the margin of defeat down to 3 or under I'll consider that a result.
And unfortunately the same logic, playing strength and managerial nous, applies to Chelsea who are next up.
I suspect your probably right. But don't expect Aston Villa or Bournemouth to win their next two games. We will be all stuck together like a constipated log...yuck
Under normal circumstances I think you would probably be right, but these circumstances are far from normal. Both Bournemouth & Villa have to play Wolves in their next 2. Wolves have something to play for. They are pushing hard for Europe, maybe even a CL spot, so they will be up for the scrap.
Oddly they also both play Newcastle in their upcoming 2 games. After beating Southampton, Newcastle are safe and, probably, will be on the beach. Therefore I wouldn't be a bit surprised if both sides pick up something against the geordies., maybe even 3 points.
Tbh we deserve relegation. The club is rotten to the core with incompetent owners, an infrastructure which doesn't stand comparison with most of our competitors, a recruitment and youth system that once was envied by other clubs but has now slipped backwards and a fan base which is not attracting the new, young, support needed to sustain the club in the future, in part because of all the in fighting amongst the fan base itself.
In short, we are a fucking shambles and if West Ham United F C was a racehorse I think the vet would already have done his worst.
