Spurs fans would have been crossing their fingers as Gareth Bale went off last night following his collision with Arsenal goalkeeper Szezcsny. With the PFA Player of the Year getting back towards his best form, he will be vital to the club as they aim for fourth place this season.

Harry Redknapp moved quickly to try and allay anyone’s fears: “It shouldn’t be too bad. He got a knock but he’ll get plenty of them over the next few years.”

So far that seems to be the only word on the substitution so we must hope that Gareth is fit and ready to take his place once again in Saturday’s line up.

  1. I’d leave him out for the run in … every team knows his game plan, we would be more effective lining up like this …

    GOMES

    KABOUL GALLAS DAWSON ASSOU EKOTTO

    SANDRO HUDDLESTONE

    LENNON VAN DER VAART MODRIC

    CROUCH

    Thoughts?

      • But we did play better second half with this formation. I’d play bale left back giving him more space to run into. It’s like the player who plays in the hole between the midfield and strickers. Who picks him up the midfield or centre back. Who marks a teams left back? No one. Who picks up your left winger – in bales cause their left mid and back

  2. I’m not sure about leaving Bale out. But I fully agree with the idea of playing Sandro and Huddlestone together, in a holding role. Kaboul does offer pace, but I believe Corluka is more comfortable in his position.
    However, with 4-2-3-1 formation, either Lennon or van der Vaart would have to be sacrificed on the right wing?? Lennon offers pace and gets past players, whereas, vdVaart offers flair and creativity, and also scoring goals.
    As for the strikers position, Crouch will cause problems, and offer assists. Whereas Pav can hold up the ball more. Defoe, I feel sorry for, who just can’t score.

    But I really want to see Huddz and Sandro to play together.
