Just asking the question if anyone thinks Defoe has done enough lately to earn a place in the first team at kick off tomorrow ? It’s really whether or not the opposition he has recently scored against could be considered as ‘credible’ enough to warrant him a starting place.
There is no doubt that Soldado is a class act and given time will settle into his rhythm. Do you disturb that ‘settling in’ period and give way to someone who has scored 7 goals in his last 4 cup matches or allow Roberto the chance to gain the confidence he needs by netting against the Hammers ?
I certainly feel Jermain’s claim for a game tomorrow has validity but personally I’d have him on the bench and play Soldado. Three more points tomorrow would go a long way to establishing our credentials as a title contender and a further 6 against Villa and Hull before another break would be the ideal scenario.
I see Michael Dawson has signed another 3 year contract taking him up to 2016. I know that Michael has his critics but he has been with us now for 8 years and that kind of club loyalty is a rare commodity these days. Let’s hope we see him lifting a few trophies very soon.
Spurs 0 West Ham 3 with Defoe in wasteful mood. Gutted and extremely disappointed in AVB deciding not to start with Soldado. He and Lamela must be wondering what’s going on.Follow @TrfficTottenham
