The Physio room at Tottenham is becoming ever more crowded as Steven Pienaar joined a growing list of casualties after a head injury picked up in training. Pienaar clashed heads with fellow new signing Bongani Khumalo and was reported to have been knocked unconscious. He is expected to be out for two weeks.
Could the injury problems have led to the bizarre site of two goalkeepers on the subs bench last night? Both Cudicini and Pletikosa were present among the substitutes. This is the second time that this has occurred this season and puts into question Harry’s decision to scrap the reserve side and send so many players (both young and experienced) out on loan.
Meanwhile, Ledley King’s operation has been put back a week, after he reportedly missed his flight because he couldn’t find his passport! Having been lauded as having the strongest squad in the league earlier on in the season, we now seem to be down to the bare bones. Let’s hope that the game against Bolton doesn’t result in any more casualties.
