    Today, Tottenham go into their fifth Premier League match, against a poor Sunderland team who haven't looked that great under their new manager, David Moyes.

    I, and thirty odd thousand Spurs fans will be expecting a few goals from the Spurs boys at The Lane, especially after the disappointing Wembley match on Wednesday.

    Our midfield rock Dembele is back today after a six match suspension after clawing Diego Costa at the end of last season (he served a six-match ban). He has been missed since and I'm sure he will walk straight back in the team today.

    I believe Eriksen and Kane need a rest, and they should have it today, and start the new signing from Newcastle, Sissoko, and Dutch centre forward Janssen, who is still looking for his first competitive goal.

    We have a very strong squad and should win the game comfortably today, and I'm sure we have seen the back of the 'old Spurs' way, whereas in the 1990s and early 2000s this is a game we would lose or even draw!

    There is so much excitement at White Hart Lane at the moment, what with the new stadium going up quickly, we have a great manager who is improving our team year after year and we have Champions League football at Wembley. It's a great time to be a Spurs fan.

    My prediction today is a 4-0 Spurs win.

    Come on you Spurs!

    Back from The Lane...

    I have a sore throat by shouting and willing the team on. How the game ended 1-0 is beyond me. Tottenham had so many chances, and on another day it could have ended 8-1!

    Harry Kane got Tottenham's only goal in the game, which Tottenham throughly deserved to win. There were so many chances in the game, but we needed to be more clinical in our finishing. Son had a few chances which he should have got on target, he also hit the outside of the post in the first half.

    Spurs decided to rest Eriksen and gave a home debut to new boy Sissoko who signed from Newcastke on transfer deadline day, for a joint record fee paid by Spurs, costing £30 million. He created a few chances for Spurs and put in a good performance.

    Hugo Lloris had very little to do, although Kyle Walker had to make a goal line clearance in the first half, this was notably Sunderland's only chance in the game.

    The worry is Dembelse, Dier and Kane all went off, injured, which will cause a lot of problems in the next few weeks, so hopefully they are not serious.

    We are now up to third in the Premier League, and one of the 3 Premier League clubs unbeaten so far, alongside leaders Manchestper City and Everton. Tottenham's record so far is three win and two draws. The fans haven't seen the best of the team yet so to pick up 11 points out of the first 5 games is a great achievement. 

    Tottenham's next league game is away for Middlesbrough and I'm sure we will take all 3 points from Teeside.

    Back to the Lane on Wednesday to watch Spurs take on Gillingham in the League Cup.

    Just back from The Lane. Tottenham are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League and it's the best ever start to a League season for Spurs.

    What a game. We have just beaten the club and manager that everyone has been talking about since the season started. Throughly deserved to win the game. We were awesome and perhaps should have scored a few more, having missed a penalty.

    The Spurs fans were brilliant today and didn't stop singing. Spurs will now be taken seriously and rightly so. Winning games like this without the likes of Dembele and Kane is a real statement.

    I have never seen our manager Poch shout so much and show his passion in the way he did today. It's a happy day for all Spurs fans.

    It's the international break - and then West Brom away. Come on you Spurs!
