Things seem to be looking up slightly for Harry Redknapp and Tottenham fans as previous injury concerns are seemingly lessening in time for the AC Milan game on Tuesday the fifteenth February.
Rafael Van Der Vaart has tweeted that he is working hard and is hopeful of being ready to start,whilst Harry has today admitted that he can not definitely rule out star winger Gareth Bale from taking part.Although he had stated after the Sunderland game that though Bale was improving Tuesday might be a little too soon for the young Welshman.
Tottenham fly out to Milan Tomorrow (Monday 14th February,) Yes,Valentine’s Day lads don’t forget your cards and flowers or you’ll be for it.And what a gift it would be to all the Tottenham faithful if both Gareth and Rafael were fit to play.Although there is no chance for Modric who is still recuperating from an appendix operation.
This game has all the hall marks of being a classic,with both teams ready to go for the win.Milan because their fans would never forgive them if they didn’t seem to at least attempt to put the English upstarts to the sword,and Tottenham Hotspur? because,well,we know no other way of playing.
And with players such as Ibrahimovic ,Robinho and one Kevin Prince Boateng who I’m sure will have one or two reasons to be more than up for the tie,Milan are not short of attacking options.Though might I add we are certainly more than capable too.And with both Woodgate and Sandro being added to our Champions League squad we also have serious experience of playing top flight games.With our young Brazilian having recently won the Copa Libertadores and Jonathan Woodgate having a wealth of time being in and around the Leeds team that came so very close all those years ago and having also spent time at Real Madrid at the time of the previous Galacticos.
So I say let’s take it right to them,keeping the pressing game high up the pitch,retaining concentration so as not to be caught out as in our previous visit to the San Siro.Have no doubt this is a game we can win and with the Milan Manager Massimiliano Allegri already dismissing our chances let’s hope their players have taken on the same attitude,something which just may well come back to haunt them.Follow @TrfficTottenham
