Two home games in four days, we need to make sure we are taking a minimum of four points from these. Norwich have made a decent start to the season and I would much prefer taking three points on Friday than against Norwich, if we had to settle for four points.

I noticed that Ryan Mason was only on the bench at the weekend, just wondering what you guys thought of him from what you have seen so far?

he's looked really good, unfortunately he's been carrying an injury. He actually returned to Spurs last week for your medical staff to assess and there was a danger his loan was coming to a premature end. Would like him to stay for the season, anymore youngsters need some first team action, I've heard the lad Caulker is quite good at the back.

He did well on his debut and definitely looks one for the future. Like 1879 says, a season long loan would be good.

Two home games in four days. Need to get at least one win and avoid defeat in the other. Both promoted sides are playing well so its not going to be easy.
