Spurs Vs. Fulham

The weekend’s results are in and Martin Jol’s team talk should be straight forward tomorrow night. Make up for the performance against Grimsby with a win and Spurs go fourth. Lose and they sit in 9th and begin to loose touch with the teams ahead, where Spurs should be.

There can be no more excuses from the Spurs players. Grimsby has to be a wake up call. Daniel Levy has put the money forward and Jol has bough who he wants. The squad is the strongest for years in terms of personnel and quality with cover in every position, something we lacked in previous campaigns. We have a manger that is backed by the crowd and the board so everything should be in place. The only ingredient missing was the players who failed to turn up against Grimsby, bar maybe Aaron Lennon. That is now totally unacceptable. They all talk of making Europe and how the club has to do this and that and if not then the greedy mercenaries will fuck off Judas style. Well the fans have done their bit, the club has and now the players have to. If we don’t make it this year then they only have themselves to blame.

In fact I’m really annoyed when I read messages on From the Lane and Glory Glory with comments like Defoe has demanded we win something or else he’s off. This of course could be complete crap but if it is true then you have to wonder. Maybe if Defoe scored penalties and hit the back of the net instead of the bar he wouldn’t have to mouth off with stupid comments.

Rant over.

We have a few injuries to contend with for the meeting of Foolham. Robinson will start in goal with King and Naybet in the middle. Kelly should be on the right but don’t be surprised if the hopeless Stalteri starts. Lee will be on the left. Carrick is injured so Jenas will be in the middle alongside Davids if fit or Michael Brown if not. Tainio is a doubt so Lennon could start wide right (he deserves to) with Reid Left. Mido will be recalled alongside Defoe I suppose but I would prefer Keane. He wants it more in my opinion.

Victory means fourth spot, three points behind Charlton of all people. If that does not spur the lads on after Tuesday night then I don’t know what will.

COYS!

i totally agree, its now time for the players and staff to do thier bit on the field. Lets move on from grimsby and start looking like the team that everybody was raving about a couple of weeks ago. im fully behind martin jol and i don't expect any true spurs fans to get on his back 2moro night.

also i feel we should start with mido and keane as defoe needs to take some time on the training pitch. hopefully davdis is back and everyone else in the team have the hunger and desire, cos i know the spurs fans will come first whistle!
lets make it a loud one again 2moro!!

think the team should be:
robinson,
kelly, king, dawson/naybet,lee
lennon, jenas, tainio/mendes, davids
mido, keane

defoe, cerny, rasiak, huddlestone, stalteri

i didn't choose reid cos i dont think he is up to the standard of the premiership and would rather have a man with one leg!

this team should have no problem if jol goes with my team choice.

i didn't choose reid cos i dont think he is up to the standard of the premiership, so we do need anothert left sided winger in jan.

this team should have no problem if jol goes with my team choice.

I'd believe the papers in reporting that Jol took the players by the bollox after that game midweek, no doubt they'll all come out fighting knwoing their necks on the line, think thats why he made the point of praising Lennon basically sayin i have ability to drop your sorry arses!

Keane to start ahead of Defoe, a players moral would be seriously damaged not getting chance even when the starting guy is playing with his head up his arse.
And also the priority has to be to get those midfielders scoring, i guess defoe must be thinkin if his on a bad day we're all fucked!
I think the fullbacks are gonna be ok but does anyone else feel we bit more worried without Dawson? I think after a few games with ledley behind them we gonna be safe and sound at the back.
The rest can buckup!

i know its early days but i think in lee and salteri we have bought two full backs who cannot cross the ball or even more worrying cannot tackle!! mendes should come in from the cold but i feel he is no longer wanted by jol, brown, davis, jackson should all be shown the door in january window. put defoe in reserves so he can find the net again, keane is hungry so play him.
