Take a break lads

Perhaps it is a tactic Sam Allardyce should have used earlier in the season!

It transpires that following our magnificent 2-0 win over Spurs, our third win over our North London rivals this season, Sam Allardyce gave the squad a break.

Apparently, Sam had told his charges that if they beat Spurs they`d be rewarded with a four day break with Sam confirming at his pre-match press conference yesterday,

"It was a little motivation by me before the game - beat Tottenham and you will have a few days off to spend with your family and get ready for this day."

"We had lost four on the trot. I wanted to make sure our last home game would be something we could remember. It was a little teaser for the lads."

"You don`t need any training now. We can`t be any fitter than we are. We can rest and come back in fresh."

"Our minds are clear, we`re looking forward to the game and we`re getting ready to go to plan our tactics against a team that is trying to win the Premier League."

Will the rest reap dividends against Manchester City though?

It remains to be seen!
