We want 10!

Surely not again?
Remember last season's humdinger against Wigan Athletic?

So then, what's changed? Well, not much to be fair. The Wigan defence is still shipping goals as though conceding them is about to go out of fashion. Four against Blackpool and six against Chelsea being my case in point.

They are missing Titus Bramble and it looks as though the Charlie N'Zogbia business isn't benefiting their changing room in any way.

Should we make anything of their 3-0 win in the midweek Carling Cup game? Some say we should and that Wigan have turned a corner. I think that we shouldn't turn up at the Lane today and expect another hammering. In fact, whenever the Spurs players have expected to win a match simply by turning up, we've gone backwards.

Truth of the matter is that on paper, we do have a vastly superior side and should win by a comfortable 3-0 scoreline. In reality, I think we shouldn't underestimate this Latics side, nor should we think their manager, Martinez, is a liability.

Champion's League anyone? As this is our first excursion in Europe's elite competition, I truly hope that we aren't hungover from Wednesday's match. Harry said that he didn't want the players celebrating too much, as they had to prepare for Saturday's game.

Having said all that, if we have prepared properly for this match, I can see nothing but a home win.

THBN Prediction: Tottenham 5-2 Wigan Athletic

In other news, the Carling Cup draw has just taken place and we've been drawn to play Arsenal. Should we be even contemplating using any of our first eleven players in this tie?
