You just can’t keep Jermain Defoe quiet at the moment – certainly not off the pitch anyway, as he’s spoken to the press about his frustration at missing out on some of Spurs’ big games this season.

Defoe has been injured for a fair proportion of the time, but he has pointed to other times where he has been fit, only to be made to sit on the bench.

“It’ll be a tough game (against Milan). I hope I’m playing and if I can score and win the game then it’ll be great.

“But I remember playing against Charlton and scoring two goals, then the next weekend I missed out.

“I was upset about that because once I start scoring I’m confident and I have the feeling I know I’ll score in the next game. We played Manchester United and I thought, ‘I’m playing’, but I didn’t start.

“It’s been hard. You start to think: ‘What am I doing here?’ I’m used to playing in big games. I’ve played in big games for my clubs and for my country.”

Well, it is likely to be a frustrating night again Jermain if Harry reverts to 4-5-1, although two goals at the weekend may change the manager’s mind.

  1. I hope Harry changes his mind and plays this team Gomes Corluka Dawson Ga;llas Ekotto Lennon Sandro Van Modric Defoe Crouch

  2. Harry & the selectors know best how to handle JD’s annoying plea. If selected to play,the worst would be for him to put a spanner in the works of a well oiled winning combination merely to achieve his 100th goal ( for his personal interest & not for the club). Just a glory seeking individual

  3. 4-5-1 with van der Vaart in the hole behind Crouch works in Europe. Why change a winning system, yes Defoe scored two at the weekend but the rest of the season he’s been absolute pony.

    Defoe – tonight is about the TEAM winning and at the moment you don’t get in the best TEAM.
