Spurs are in for a long season. Other teams will find a way to get points from them at Wembley before they start mastering the terrain.

I hope Rudiger and Christensen become our regular starters ahead of Cahill.

I said before that Cahill should watch it. It may be difficult for him to walk back into the team

I wish you were right jerry - but i suspect once Cahill is back he will replace Christensen - I would rather he be on the bench Christensen deserves a run in the team in my view
