Between now and the end of October Tottenham Hotspur will play four Premier League home games.

The result of our first Wembley match of the 2017/18 season didn’t exactly end as we would have wanted. So, can this dreadful Wembley spell (***note*** – I didn’t use the dreaded and frustrating word) be finally put to bed?

Sunday 27 August

On the opening day of the season league newbies beat Chelsea 3-2 at Stamford Bridge. However, it was back down to earth with a crash and a bang last Saturday when Sean Dyche’s lot lost at home 1-0 to WBA.

Saturday 16 September
Swansea City

Two games played, drawn one away at Southampton then they received a right royal thumping at the weekend, 4-0 by Moaning Maureen Mourinho’s United.

Saturday 14 October
AFC Bournemouth

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth seem to have lost their mojo following a 1-0 away defeat at WBA and 2-0 home defeat at Dean Court to Watford. Could this be their third and final season in the top division?

Sunday 22 October

Our recent record against these lot can be summed up in one word. DISMAL. In fact, you have to go back to November 2012, at the Lane (Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale) until the records show us as claiming three points.

With 12 home points to play for I would suggest we should be odds on favourite to get nine. Surely?

  • They are all winable even Liverpool especially if they lose Coutinho but even if they don’t if we stop their pace and attack we can get at their defence

  • Don’t count any chickens, I seem to remember that Burnley beat Chelsea first game of the season. There are no gimmes in the PL these days, you have to work hard, and/or play well to win, no matter who you are.

  • Frank is absolutely correct. If a team does not come out and outwork, outperform and outscore the opposition, you don’t win. 4 games in 9 weeks is not great for any team. Hard to get in to a rhy. We also have a lot of players who will be on international duty. Glad Wanyama has been granted permission to not play (he was very rusty and off the pace against Chelsea). Injuryies always play a part. Let’s start off with 3 points against Burnley. Get the hoodoo out of the way (which, in the end, came down to performance – we have been poor at Wembley) which could then be used as an advantage in Europe and the cups. It won’t just be a special occasion. At least 24 games will be played there this year. We’ll be fine. Team is still great. We are upgrading our coverage in defence and will be improving at the other end too. Positive in the lack of games will be that the new additions will be able to get used to their teammates. It is an exciting time. We need to get wins and avoid ties. Last season the ties at the start of the season killed us. Win, win, win, win, will have us on our way. COYS
