Above is the Tottenham FIRST ELEVEN which equals to : FULL FORCE.

And when did you hear or read names like Degen, Darby, Cavalieri...? These are the second string and unfortunately, I sincerely think not only Hotspur but Burnley surely burned this team to ashes.
Then our golden bastion, Hyppia scored the second. But to no avail against 4 goals deficit.
oohhh... well... what to do. It's a Carling Cup. Something easy to forget. I must say, the defeat wasn't that bad - compared to the last defeat by Hotspur when we controlled the whole game, only to falter by a last minute lucky goal by that damned Russian.
Drogba is practising his finger licking good to Burnley's fan....
Let's focus on Bolton this Saturday. Actually, the result wasn't that bad as compared to Chelsea... yeaa... they got burned by Burnsley and worst of all, in a penalty shoot out! And Drogba could be in a hot soup for showing his middle finger and throwing back a coin to the opposition fans.
If I were to put it nonchalantly... it seems that both League leaders are determined to let go this nonsense cup. Liverpool under Rafa, is concentrating fully to the Premier League. And I do believe Rafa is targeting the UEFA Champions League as well. For this, I support Rafa.
Though FA Cup could be another good tournament for Liverpool to participate. The memory of 2001 (beating Arsenal) and 2006 (beating West Ham) is so fresh in me.
