Saints At Tottenham Hotspur The Preview
Tuesday, 4th Dec 2018 21:22
For one night only live at Wembley Stadium Kelvin Davis's Red & White Army, can Saints win at Wembley for the first time in 42 years.
The Mark Hughes era is over and before the next one can begin Kelvin Davis takes charge of the team for the trip to Spurs, with injuries and suspensions all over the place he has nothing to lose and indeed it gives a chance for the likes of James Ward Prowse and Oriol Romeu, players who were good enough for our sixth place finish but who Hughes rarely picked to force their way back in the side.
Hopefully what Davis can do for his one game in charge and with the presence of the incoming manager in the stands is bring a sense of pride and passion back in the squad, make the players want to play for their place and not go through the motions.
It will be a difficult game, but Spurs have issues of their own for this game themselves so perhaps we can cause a shock and the game against Manchester United showed that we can compete against the big six.
Strangely enough Spurs have yet to draw a game in the Premier League this season, they either win as they have done 10 times or they lose as they have done in the other 4.
I don't expect Kelvin Davis to go to radical on this, there are enforced changes to be made due to suspension, but he can cover these and hopefully some of these coming in will now see some light at the end of the tunnel and find the enthusiasm that Mark Hughes did not instill in them.
Hopefully this is the last game of one era and the start of the next, if we are to play to our potential then we have to kick forward all in the same direction, things have changed over the past month at St Mary's, Les Reed the brunt of some fans ire has gone, Mark Hughes who has failed to get the best out of the team has gone, some fans won't be satisfied till Ralph Krueger joins them, but the Canadian doesn't kick a ball for the club, he has gone some way to addressing the problems and made changes that the fans demanded.
So let's get this one out of the way and then concentrate on the rest of the season all as one.

pause for breath by basilrobbiereborn
Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.

So Christmas came and went and for many the lasting memory will be of Valeri Belokon breaking a long, self-imposed silence to send we supporters festive greetings.
