They had come back to the flat and couldn't get in without a key so they had slept in the neighbours house. All a big dramas they had had a terrible night. That morning we lay about and at 2 I went back to my place to change and see what was in store. As soon as I got back to mine, which was about 3.30 there was a message from Elisha saying we ...

... though no Tottenham players were there. It was great to see how much effort goes into every aspect of preparation and hear the coaches shouting at/praising players who had been doing it for 15 years. What a treat.
