  1. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    Sure is an interesting line up. Guessing Kane plays more in the hole under Llorente.
  2. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    Poch apparently told the media yesterday that Rose could start on the bench but indicated he thought starting the match would be too much for him. So then the question becomes...is he being square or is this a bit of misdirection like he did with KWP ahead of the Newcastle opener? As I have heard nothing of Davies I am left to assume he didn't travel which has a huge knock on effect in the rest of the XI with Wanyama unavailable as well. Considering all we know right now I think this is my XI to start: Lloris Sanchez, Dier, Alderweireld Aurier, Dembele, Sissoko, Verts Eriksen, Kane, Son I'm not completely satisfied with this line up and honestly torn over the choice between Sissoko and Winks. Put Sissoko in for size, pace and directness of play but seeing Winks here wouldn't hurt my feelings at all. Better still would be Rose in at LW which would put Verts back to CB and Dier back to DM but I think that might be too much.
  3. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    Why do you say no Verts? His red against Dortmund was the result of a second yellow which would only mean he is suspended for one match and that was against Apoel. Correct? Guys that are out for this match by my reckoning: Suspended - Dele Injured/Sick - Davies (sick), GKN (concussion), Wanyama (knee), Lamela (ineligible)
  4. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    I have weird feeling here that Rose isn't along just for show even though my head tells me it's stupid to throw Real at him as his first match in what now...9 months? Other injuries might force Poch's hand though. I guess it all depends on how bad he wants the combination of a back 3 and Dier in midfield. Ronaldo typically plays on the left (Bale being out pretty much guarantees this too, I think) which means Aurier and Alderweireld would be seeing the most of him in our typical set up. If Poch were to move Dier out of midfield and into the back 3 so he could play Verts on the left wing that would Dier out on that right side against Ronaldo and that is something I don't fancy, even with Aurier to help. Dier is a better defender from that CM role he likes so much. I think we have a shot a nicking at least a point here. Sadly, if we were a healthy side I think we could steal all 3.
  5. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    If you are good with it, I can probably merge them. And no apology necessary. With the magnitude of this match I absolutely should have had the thread up earlier.
  6. CL: Real Madrid v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

    Official Match thread is now up. Sorry for the delay -- I was traveling and dealing with some personal stuff.

    Talk about the match here before, during and after. COYS!
  8. PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Bournemouth

    He is better in the center. Doesn't mean he is great there, just better than on the wings. And I put him in here in order to save Dembele for mid week with Real.
  9. PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Bournemouth

    My guess is that Poch comes out nearly full strength for this match. Lloris Toby, Sanchez, Jan Trippier, Dier, Sissoko, Davies Eriksen, Kane, Dele

  15. CL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Borussia Dortmund

    He has hardly played or practiced yet this season due to the transfer saga. He will firm up.
