Giovani Dos Santos! Watching him in midweek made me think to myself even more “I hope Harry can see he is worth keeping”, he didn’t change the game but for me he is a player who is always a threat and a player who is well capable of nicking us a goal out of nothing.

I am going to take a gamble on him this season by putting him in my dream team ( he will only be one of my subs to start with). Watching the World Cup he showed he has natural talent and abaility, he just needs someone to get the best out of him and if Harry can do that with the rest of our team then why not with Gio?. Whenever he plays for Mexico everything goes through him, he pulls all the strings  and at such a young age. You don’t play for Barcelona and become a bad player over night.

Harry seems to have warmed to him more since the World Cup, he has said on a few occasions that he knows Gio is talented but he prefers the party lifestyle and should he just knuckle down could be a great player. So why does Harry up untill now always overlook him? is it punishment for his extreme social life?

To me if Harry is a good manager then part of being a good manager is to work with players that have been misguided and turn them around and to help them reach their full potential. Giving up on a player with ability like Dos Santos is criminal and it would be a decision we could live to regret and that scares me.

The general feel I get from Spurs fans is that they mainly share my view that this kid isn’t done and dusted and could yet show us the reason we signed him. I think Gio would be well suited to Champions League matches. Gio was nominated for best young player at this year’s 2010 World Cup and it seems maybe Harry has picked up on his performances and might just be willing to open the door once more for Gio. Gio scored in our 4-1 defeat to Villarreal in midweek to give us something to cheer about, he gives off vibes of calmness when in front of goal and dribbling with the ball looks like it comes natural to him like it does to Messi.

Now if you are asking me I think up untill the new year we will see Gio given more of a chance, probably his last chance at Tottenham, but I just hope it is a fair chance and not 10 mins here and there, he can play on the left, forward or in a hole behind the striker. I sometimes think Harry doesn’t know which position is best for Gio but why not give him more of a chance. I would much rather see Gio in a Spurs shirt for another season than Jenas.

We take on Befinca at their gaff on tuesday night, hopefully Giovani will be given a good run out in that match too and hopefully win Harry over even more. The game will be live on ESPN I believe so sign up to the >>forum<< to see the match live. Gio what would you do with him?

Well the big guns are back for tonights match but will they be rested or will they play? Anyway as you know the past couple of games I have set up a new page for the games streams, well tonight it is in the FORUM only, just click the link and login or register, the streams are embedded into the Tottenham vs Villarreal topic so you can watch and chat, I will work on adding more. There are fewer streams around tonight but I have managed to dig a couple out for you guys.

The world cup players are back but some of the youngsters have been in good form in pre season so far, so will Harry stick with some of them? It is our first home friendly and there will surely be a decent atmosphere at the Lane. Harry seems to change his formation to a 5-4-1 or 4-3-3 only to later revert to 4-4-2 later on in recent games, but I guess that is what a friendly match is for.

Personally I think it’s important that some of the World Cup boys get some fitness and get a good half an hour on the pitch, these are the players that will be opening agaisnt City in 2 weeks so we don’t have long left to prepare them. We are the favourites for the win and I fully expect the boys to deliver, it’s a shame we haven’t had no new signings to take a look at for tonight but who knows, maybe next week.

Don’t forget to check back here tomorrow morning for a match review and highlights if I can find some, if you know of any before I do use the contact me page and give me the link. I am going for a 2-1 win tonight, leave your predictions below.
