Charlton Vs. Spurs.

Spurs travel to the valley for another London derby. We have an 100% record in London derbies this season but if you look back a couple of years the record is awful. Couple that with Charlton lying in second place you may think that this could be a bad day for Spurs. However we are unbeaten away and have only lost one game all season so there is no reason why we can’t get a result.

To get the point or three we would like then the performances of some players need to improve, especially Jermaine Jenes. We can afford no more sloppy passing from him as any lose balls will be pounced on by Murphy or Thomas.

Spurs will start in goal with Robinson. Lee will be left with Stalteri right. I would prefer Kelly as usual but I don’t think that will happen. Dawson is back in the squad but I would prefer Naybet to partner King. His experience and organisational skills will be invaluable and, in my opinion, puts him ahead of Dawson for this game.

The midfield is a mystery. Lennon may play wide right or he may not. Mendes was class on Monday so I hope he remains in the middle with Davids alongside him – He is wasted on the left. If so then Reid will play wide left and it may have to be Lennon on the right but more probably Jenes there who is useless in that position. However it could be the same midfield as started against Fulham. But then again Michael Brown may play somewhere. Maybe Jol pulls names out of a hat?

Defoe will remain up front alongside Mido with Keane on the bench.

Recent records at The Valley indicate that we are on a good run there although we lost the last match to two very good goals. A win tomorrow by two clear goals will see us go second. Another game we need to get something from.


Visit All Quiet in the East Stand (appropriate name for Charlton's lame support) for their opinion of the game.

We don't have a 100% record in London derbies this year - we lost to Chelsea.

It will be the same side as Monday, though Jenas wouldn't deserve to start after his performance in that game.

I hope we can get something out of this game. I do have a good feeling about it and if we can keep it tight in the midfield we can get all 3 points. Jenas needs to relax and step up his game. Can't wait for tomorrow.
