Russians look in for a difficult night in N17
ANZHI, Anzhi, when will those clouds all disappear?
While apologising to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, its impossible not to feel sympathetic towards the former moneybags outfit of the Russian Premier League have had the plug pulled .
Boy are they suffering.
If being bottom of the table wasn't bad enough, they now have to brave the traffic on Tottenham High Road less than two weeks before Christmas.
They can hardly feel at home then, can they?
Spurs are already qualified for the knockout stages of the Europa League and I fancy Andre Villas-Boas will struggle to weaken his team.
It's almost impossible when the entire membership of the Tottenham squad are of the same standard and they should run out comfortable winners.
So back Spurs to win to nil.
If that comes in, it's satisfaction guaranteed.
