Harry Redknapp may have sprung a surprise when he announced that Ledley King and Johnathan Woodgate had returned to light training and that they may play a part in Spurs’ run in to the end of the season.

“Both Jonathan and Ledley have been out with the fitness coaches and hopefully they’ll be back training in a few days,” Harry said.

“It would be lovely to see them back and available again. We just take it day by day, but it’s great to see them back out there.”

These two have been the subject of much debate about their future and the injury to Younes Kaboul has highlighted what a strain it is on the squad to have two long term injury victims in defence.

So, if Gallas, Dawson and Kaboul stay fit to the end of the season, would either Ledley or Woody replace them? For the sake of their own careers, should they be out on the pitch proving their fitness or left until next season?



  1. well tbh no. if they stay fit until pre-season and prove themselves in the friendly then i will retract my statement but looking at it now dawson and gallas are doing a fine job. they can be bench warmers until proven otherwise. no offence to the two of them as when fit they have the ability to be in most major european sides.

  2. It is at a point now where the decent thing should be done and stop hindering our progress and retire.. I love King and Woody but they have not contributed for such a long time they should not have the right to just walk in ahead of Dawson, Gallas, Kaboul and Bassong. The problem is they are both liabilities and will not play a full 90 minutes, they will be injured and we will have to make an early sub. Too risky with that 4th place at stake.

  3. I’ve longed (:P) for them both to be back but I now feel we should cut our loses and let them both go. I don’t really have any confidence they will return for any length of time.(
