Amazing isn't it, the Tottenham Hotspur versus Swansea City game is being shown in 140 countries around the world and England is not one of them!
The Premier League prevent that, quite why I don't know, the crowd are still going to turn up to support the team. Internet viewing is the future of the sport and a future income source, still we get a rather decent income from broadcasting rights as it is.
Today we play Swansea City in a game where we need three points while we wait for the full first team to play together and hopefully go on a run. One loss in 13 Premier League games is not a bad platform to build from. The Chelsea game was only our 4th defeat in 26 away Premier League games so no scapegoats are required.
It will be good to see Toby Alderweireld back, but we need to see Erik Lamela back as his hip injury just seems to have gone on and on without any sign of it coming to an end it seems. We need him, unless some others are going to start to step up to the plate, which isn't happening enough at the moment.
