The Voice Of Reason
The very last game at the old Lane, of course the new Lane will still be the Lane to all of us, whatever they decide to call it, but it will still be very emotional.
I don't do 'must win' games very often, it is a very overused term, a 'must win' is a cup final, a game that would decide the title or doom us to relegation, so I don't usually say games are 'must win' because they ain't. This IS a 'must win' game.
We all remember that game on the 29th September 2012 when we finally beat United at Old Trafford after, I think it was 22 years, certainly the first away win against them in the Premier League. We had only won 3 of the 31 previous Premiership encounters against them before that magnificent day when our glorious heroes, Gareth Bale, Clint Dempsey and Johnny Evans ended the long cycle of gloom. I wonder what odds you could have got on a Spurs win with an Evans own goal and fucking Dempsey getting the winner!
This will be a tough game and our boys need to dig deep to send the fans home happy or there will be a riot and seats will be removed, bits of the pitch will be dug cup and all sorts of stuff will go on, I expected even the urinal cakes will be pilfered.
