Always a quiet time with international breaks but tomorrow really could be a pivotal point in our season. The West Ham result may well have been a temporary ‘blip’ but there is no doubt in my mind that AVB’s reluctance to be a bit more daring in the second half allowed the opposition to take control.
The question is what lessons did AVB (if any) learn from his tactical ploy of that match. His team selection tomorrow will surely reflect where he felt the weaknesses were. So here was the team :
- 25 Lloris
- 02 Walker
- 16 Naughton (Holtby – 81′ )
- 19 Dembélé
- 20 Dawson
- 05 Vertonghen
- 17 Townsend
- 08 Paulinho
- 18 Defoe
- 23 Eriksen (Soldado – 74′ )
- 22 Sigurdsson (Lamela – 63′ )
So fellow supporters….who would you leave out of this line up and who would you bring in if you were AVB ??
Personally I think Soldado has to start and I would love to see Lamela also get a full 90 minutes together with Holtby…. Eriksen to provide the bullets for Roberto to fire and farewell Mr Defoe. It will be interesting to see just how much variation we get in your teams so come on….before Spurs announce the team let’s have a look at the supporter’s choices….COYS !!!!
