Tonight’s line up against Manchester City could be one of the hardest of the season to predict with news that Spurs have fresh injury worries over Luka Modric, Jermaine Jenas and Peter Crouch. With Bale, BAE and Huddlestone still expected to miss the game, the pool from which to choose is getting smaller.
The back five should remain unchanged while in midfield, Kranjcar may have been the obvious replacement for Bale but with Redknapp so reluctant to play him, Pienaar may step in if fit. In midfield, if Luka does miss out and Jenas is not fit in whatever sense to replace him, then it could be Lennon, VDV, Sandro and Pienaar with Defoe and Pav up front.
If that looks unbalanced or if Harry is equally reluctant to play Lennon from the start, a youngster could even feature in the way that Danny Rose slotted in on Saturday. Other than that, options look a little thin on the ground.
lennon to partner defoe upfront!
Ffs why drop lennon for vdv?! deary me, redknapp is thick.
Calm down guvnor, read the headline, this is the site’s team for tonite, not ‘Arrys.
I know that but this is what harry has done recently. Vdv offers nothing to our team.
Corluka is too tall to play as right back or left back. He is too shit to play as CB. Face it, we have no strikers.
Not necessarily true, Defoe has proved he can pull something out of the hat on a few occasions this season, the only problem is that he spends so much time during the game rooting around in that hat trying to find something that his contributions are almost useless when he finally chips in during the 88th minute or the like.
I blame Harry not a) playing him consistently enough even during his rough patches and b) not letting him start and only bringing him on late in the game when he has played. He’s not had the time to find his stride really.
NO SUCH THING AS BEING TO TALL FOR A C / BACK WITH IN REASON OF COURSE NOT YOUR 6 FEET – 8″ + BASKET BALL TYPE OF COURSE , 6 FT – 0″ 1″ 2″ IS PERFACT NOT KNOWING WHO IS FIT AND WHO IS NOT FIT I WOULD LOVE TO FIELD THIS TEAM WHO I THINK IS REASONABLY FIT , GOMES CORLUKA GALLAS DAWSON ROSE LENNON SANDRO MODRIC KRANJAR VDV CROUCH COYS ! ! ! BUT SURPRISE SURPRISE !!! A TEAM WHO CAN ADOPT AND PLAY A 3 X 4 X 3
My mate was ssaying how all the central midfielders are out and Kaboul will start alongside Sandro in central midfield.
Corluka Dawson Gallas Rose
Lennon VDV Stevie P
Now Bale is crocked I’d like to see Pienaar start the remaining 3 games, think he’s a quality player who just needs a good run, was pretty much a dead cert on the Everton teamsheet during his time there.
He’s got a creative mind, great movement and links up well with Mod!
