12 men........sure fire way to beat 'um
That looks a good side, but not sure you will get away with it as you have 12 players.
Brilliant!! I totally agree, just need to sneak that extra player past the referee and if we get away with it should play this team every week!!
We're bound to win if we can get 12 players on the pitch like in your team Harry! lol
good choice...we need 12 on the pitch at the moment!!
You have 12 players....
I think you've taken some liberties with injuries there HH... more realistically I think it'll beRobinsonRocha/Gardner/Chimbonda/StalteriMalbranque/Zokora/Huddlestone/JenasKeane/BentObviously this is a terrifyingly unadventurous selection, but Jol is going to be ultra-cautious I feel...
RobboChimbo Daws, Gardner LeeRouteledge, Huddlestone, Boateng, Taarabt.Defoe, BentWont happen tho, golden balls jenas cant be dropped until his balls do.
Good team if you can get away with it as you have 12 players
agree with that selection but somehow don't think we'd get away with fielding all 12!
why the hell would you start gardner ahead of rocha??Granted gardner is fast but he is dumb dumb dumb and very unreliable, not to mention he cant head for b*lls! Rocha is a tough tackling solid centre back!
Well, if they let us field 12 players ,I'm sure we'll win!
looks a very exciting team - will Derby let us play with 12 men?
12 men! That should help.
Call me crazy, but isn't that a sew too many men on the field? Perhaps that's what we need...
First time I've commented on this site but answer mme this simple question........ how many f*cking players are in a football team???Answers on a postcard......
12 players, well we should win this one
very nice the extra man in playing 4-4-3 would really help ;o)
Yes, I think 12 against 11 should give us the edge!
Harry, 4-4-3?! If only we could play 12 men......
Thats 12 players!!
Yep, that team would probably beat the ram's, ............... but only cus you got an extra player!!!!! dumb ass!!! Come on you RAMS!!!!!!
12 players?RobinsonChimbondaAnyone but GardnerRochaAnyone but StalteriMalbranqueJenasHuddlestoneTaarabtDefoeBent
RobboChimbo, Daws, Gardner, BaleRout, Boateng, Hudd, TaarabtDefoe, BentOnly 11 in my team Harry, not the 12 in yours. Then again we might need 12 to get a win!
12 players you avin a laugh
At least we'll have an advantage by fielding 12 men!
you've got too many players on the pitch mate..nice idea and we probably need it but the ref will probably notice! young Adel must start and Jenas who was usless in the first two games can't be considered for the bench!
I reckon we should win with 12 players alright!
Thats 12 players!
Apart from the fact that Dawson & Bale aren't fit, Premier rules are only eleven players on the pitch, not 12 FFS!
I wish we could play 4-4-3 too
If we could have 12 players on the pitch I'm sure we'd have a bit more of a chance :)
u do realise theres 12 players in ru selection harry lol
yep that probably would beat the rams.......... but only cus your fielding 1 extra player!! MUPPET!!! COME ON YOU RAM'S!!!
well i'll be fucked......Tainio's injured again! Probably a good thing though as he's shite, like the rest of our midfield.
Harry good looking team mate but dawson out,bale out, and boateng out. but do agree with taraabt in their adding attacking flair clearly a success in pre season we need to jus drop JENAS! i actually hate him now.
I reckon there's a good chance of winning with 12 players on our team!!!Might we not get docked points though (assuming we get some one day...)
Yeah, I can see us winning with that team, although the ref may have an issue with 12 players...COYS!!!
Is that a joke?? are we allowed to play with 12 men this week?? Bale and Dawson are not in the squad!
don't want to piss on your chips fella but I doubt they'll let us start with 12 men against Derby, but other than that I like the attacking look to the midfield
Hmmm, i think the league might have something to say about us fielding 12 men..............think again, harry
That would be 4-4-3 formation right? Interesting.... 12 men! Could work
ummm...isn't there one too many players in this selection?
I agree, lets play 12 players!!!!
Mine would be:Robbo,ChimbondaDawson (if fit)RochaLee (Bale is not match fit)ZokoraHuddlestoneRoutledgeTaraabtBentKeane
Great! Unless they spot your using 12 players...
a few problems with your choice... Dawson Injury?? Plus 12 players..although we could do with an extra man at the moment!!
Erm... 12 players on field? good if it would work. Dawson is injured tho.
Might win if we could play 4 4 3
yep that probably would beat the rams......... only cus your fielding 1 extra player!!! MUPPET!!! COME ON YOU RAMS!! THE RAM MAN
I think we'd beat a lot more teams playing 4-4-3!
also harry would love to play 12 but dont rekon we would be allowed :p
I agree Harry. 12 players should do it!!!
Yeah I think that team will win, Harry - but will the ref let us play 12? BTW - Bale & Boateng ain't match fit yet + Dawson is still out. Apart from that you're so on the ball you could get a game in out defence ;)POMPEY YID
yeh thats great 443!!!!
Well, I we can't win with 12 players on the pitch, I reckon we're in for a long season.I'd like to seeRobbochimbodawson (if healthy)RochabaleboatengzokoraHuddlestonetaarabtKeaneBentWith a plan to bring in defoe at half to give Robbie the green light to expend a match worth of energy in the first 45 minutes.
I don't think the ref will let us get away with an extra outfield player mate? Doh!!!
I agree if we play with 12 men we will have a good chance!
That line-up would be fine Harry if the Premier League suddenly allowed us to field 12 players! Mind you, after the first two games, that might not be a bad idea! :o)
dawson is injuredboateng is not match fitbale will not play , lee will play at left back do you really know anything about tottenham harry hotspur
WOW!!! i mean if we didnt win with that formation i would certainly be looking for someones head. Especially as it appears that we will have 12 players on the pitch. Nice one!
There's 12 players there!!We might win one if we have 1 extra on the pitch!!
Harry....Thats an excellent squad but you have one problem with it....there is 12 men on the pitch????Com' on Harry get with it mate!
O that we could play 12 players
Good if 12 player on the field in one go....
There are 12 players there.We might win one if we're allowed an extra player on the pitch!!
4 4 3 harry - is this a joke? cernychimb gard daws (if fit) bale (if fit)jenas zokora huddle taarrbbaattaattbent defoe or keane
do we have special dispensation fo field 12 players?
So thats a 4-4-3 then?
12 players your avin a laugh!
4-4-3, clever. Wonder why nobody has tried it before. Actually I have a better idea. What about 4-4-4?
12 men, that's novel Harry.CernyChimbondaRochaGardener (Dawson if fit)Ifil (Bale or YPL if Fit)HuddlestoneZokora (Diamond with Boateng Left Jenas and Zokora right)BoatengBentDefoe
why do u have 12 players in your team
Winning the Premiership would be easy if you were actually allowed to pick 12 players
I am sure the referee would notice us playing 12 players and I don't think Bale is quite fit enough to play yet although Lee is supposed to be. Not sure about Routledge
But seriously.......How about thisRobinsonIfilChimbondaGardnerRochaJenasHuddlestoneZokoraTaarabtKeaneBentCernyStalteriMalbranqueRoutledgeDefoeAssuming Dawson's still out and Boateng's not quite ready
Yeah I'll go with you, let's try and sneak an extra man on, see if they notice!! Ha Ha.No seriously, not sure that Les is fit, Bale certainly isn't, so I'd have to go with:Cerny; (R-L) Stalteri, Chimbonda, Rocha, Gardner; (R-L) Routledge, The Prince, Huddlestone, Taraabt; Bent, Defoe.I know there's no experience in the midfield but hey, give the kids a chance, no fear! Can't do any worse than the chocolate teapots we've been playing.
nice, i like the way we get one more player than the opposition as well..
You're onto a winner, Harry - as long as the match officials don't notice we've sneaked 12 onto the pitch. Apart from that, Bale & Boateng ain't match fit & Dawson is out injured. You're so on the ball, Harry, you could get a game in central defence ;) POMPEYYID
Err i think you've just fielded 12 players but if that was an option i'd go for it too! I agree mostly although i don't think Dawson is available this weekend so i'd probably have to go with rocha and gardner at center. shame coz there both pretty hopeless at defending.
so you think fielding 12 players is our only chance??? i think dawson and bale are out too. why not give ifil a chance at left back if lee hasnt recovered? he's played there before.robinsonchimbondagardnerdawson/rochaleejenasboatengzokorataraabtkeanebent
That's 12 players squire. I know we're in a bit of a slump but...
do we have special dispensation to field 12 players?
That looks like a great lineup, but how are we going to get them to let us play 12 players? :D I know it's tough to pick only 2 strikers, but come on now HH, you're paid to make those tough decisions, so push one of the strikers to the bench please so we can discuss this. :)
That would be awesome - especially playing with 12 men! The same team (if Dawson and Bale are fit - if not Rocha and Ifil) with Bent and Defoe up front.Defoe deserves a chance and we dont want to lose him!
I reckon we might have trouble trying to field all 12 players. Whilst I'm here, should I explain the Offside Trap? Or where the goals are?
thats all well and good but theres 12 players there and some of them are injured.Mine is for this weekend due to injuries:Robboifilchimbondagardnerrochataraabtzokorajenasmalbranquebentkeanecome on you spurs!!harry havent you got any inside sources that can say something on this taylor and davies business?
Looks lie a good team with a few small problems! 1. You have 12 players in your starting 11.2. Dawson is still unfit3. Boateng is stll not match fit4. Routledge is crap! other than that good choice!
JUST THE 12 PLAYERS THEN, ARE YOU SURE THAT WILL BE ENOUGH??
should do well especially 12 against 11
Isn't bale going to miss this one?
is this a joke Harry? 4-4-3!routledge in the middle - joker cernychimb rocha daws & bale if fitjenas zokora huddle taarrbbattaattbent (defoe or Keano)i should be manager
Harry, Jol's having a hard time but I'm sure even he can count to 11........
I thought football was 11 a side?
ONLY 12 PALYERS THEN HARRY, ARE YOU SURE THAT WILL BE ENOUGH???
In all seriousness, remove one of three for the starting line up. Either Keane, Defoe or Zakora. I think Routledge did enough to secure a start after he came on Tuesday night.
I think using 12 players instead of the regulation 11 might give us a slight advantage. Otherwise I would start with Defoe & Bent upfront.
taarabt on left with hudd & zok in middle for me, jenas on the right as boateng still not fit
not sure Derby will allow us to play 12??? and we'd probably still draw with them at the moment...
I like your twelve man team. Lets hope the ref does not notice.
GK: LevyRB: Stadium AnnouncerLB: CaretakerCB: HughtonCB: That fat bloke in the east stand RM: Ball boyLM: Anyone !?!?CM: StewardCM: MeCF: JolCF: Stephen Hawkingthat team will do better than our boyscoys :(
Dawson is still injured to start with,Bale not yet ready and will be available against Manyoo,Lee is more likely to be fit,Boateng is not match fit either,Routledge looked too lightweight against Everton,Taarabt is a good option on the right and put your faith in Steed he looks like the only one played ok on Tuesday..Drop Keane he is keeping the ball too long and killing our quick attacks.
Well i'll be fucked........Tainio's injured! He's shite anyway. Not as shite as Jenarse though
Can you play with 12 players?
Brilliant! Playing a 12th man will definitely give us an edge.
I like your twelve man team. Let's hope the ref does not notice the extra man.
well harry my team would have 11 players in it for a start and all 11 of them would be fit as opposed to your team of 12 with 2 injured players.RobboChimboLeeRochaGarderzokorahuddlestoneMalbranqueTaraabtKeaneBentYour only allowed 11 players in soccer Harry
Do you think the ref would let us have run out with that team, Harry? Well, considering our horrible start, maybe the FA would let us start with 12 players, we might be needing a extra push...Personally I'd go for this line up (supposing Dawson is not ready):Robbo - Chimbo, Bambi Gardner, Rocha, Lee (if ready) - Taraabt, Thuddle, JJ, Malbranque - Bnt, DefoeThink that two wide-players won't be needed if Thuddle has a decent game, as he will provide service to our two front men, Taraabt will hopefully also bring a creative dimension to our game. But, should we need it, I think Jol should not hesitate to sub Steed for Routledge. Keane is dropped in mye team because of two dodgy performances as a kind of attacking midfielder - a role he appearantly doesn't manage, and Defoe deserves having a go after a display in the last half our against Everton that showed some spirit. Though, I doubt that Mr. Jol will agree with me in that decision.COYS! Doka, a norwegian, lifelong Spurs-supporter.
the old tricky 4-4-3 formation and hope no-one notices eh?
would hope that team would win Harry, 12 players!!!!
RobinsonChimbondaRocha Gardener (because we haven't got a choice!)Bale (If fit)TaarabtZokoraBoatengMalbranqueKeane BentThat should be enough to beat Derby.We need more creativity in midfield.
you may be right there. playing 12 players could be our only chance of victory
Only one problem with your selection, if we play all 3 strikers then we'll have 12 men on the pitch, and I don't think we'd get away with that..Also I think Daws is still injured..my team for sat:CernyChimboRochaGardnerStalteriTaarabtBoateng (if fit)THuddRoutledgeDefoeBentSubs:KeaneRobboZokRoseifil
3 strikers Harry? If we're playing with 12 lets drop one of those strikers in the midfield.
yes i think having 12 players on the pitch might give us the edge?
Didn't realise 12 players were allowed on the pitch this season!
I know we are bad but I don't think we will be allowed to field 12 players
you got 12 players starting. are Dawson and Bale back
Wow! 12 players - is that allowed!? ;)
you may be right there. playing 12 players could be our only chance
great line up Harry...Im with you all the way.... about time Jenas got a rude awakening and left on the bench.... 12 in the 1st team... think we might need them...
Yes, you're right we will need 12 players on pitch to win this one .
12 players! Harry you fool!!!
Your right, we will need 12 players on pitch to win this one!
you have 11 outfiedl players you muppet!!! Drop Defoe and you're onto a winner, a big winner.
nice idea - playing 12 players and bale whose injured
Love it...12 players and we will still be dreadful!
If only we could play 12 players
You have 11 outfield players you muppet. drop Defoe and you are onto a winner!!!

love it...12 players...bet we still let in a handful of dreadful goals!
We should win that one, you've got 12 players in there..
12 players....that should definatley help.
brilliant tactical thinking. By fielding 12 players we might start to pick up some points!
Firstly, i would be sensible and only select 11 players, not 12 and i would also only select the fit players, but thats just me...RobinsonChimbondaGardener (forced)RochaLeeZokoraHuddlestoneTarabtJenas (on the right)DefoeBentsubsBoatangKeanesome others...
good thinking. By fielding 12 players we might start to pick up some points.
Thats great Harry. I agree with the most...especially the 12 players!! If we don't win with 12 there's something wrong!!
Bale isn't likely to be fit is he...but to be fair injured he will do a better job than big Tone and Stalo I'm sure
Nice one Harry - I guess 12 players might help to give us a slight edge! Notwithstanding I basically agree with your selection though please not Mr G (too gaff prone) but Rocha. Much as I despair of him I would be inclined to give JJ one last chance and play him on the right wing rather than Routledge who I would have on the bench and bring on after the first half if JJ does not deliver. In order to field a team of 11 I would leave Defoe as a bench option. COYS
Yea mine would be the same, only daws and bale aren't fit. So my team would be RobinsonChimbonda Rocha Gardner StalteriRoutledge Boateng Zokora Taarabt Bent KeaneThat defense looks so bad its unreal =(
If you muppets are gonna field 12 players, wouldn't you be better off picking an extra keeper.Maybe a shot or two would actually be saved.
1-4-4-3 = ??!!Classic!Although we might just need 12 players!!
4 4 3It's the new 4 4 2....

I wouldn't play Dawson or Bale as they are not fit. midfield is a bit inexperienced......dare i suggest Ghaly?
My team would be RobboChimboLeeRochaGarderzokorahuddlestoneMalbranqueTaraabtdefoeBent
You'll win, cause Berba is not there.Levy has 14 days to sell him.Do it!I'm not joking!Nemesis
and it's all gone quiet over there.......robboifilchimbogardnerrochamalbranquejenasthudtaarbratdefoebentcoys
We'd still lose with 12 the way we're playing!! My jokers for this weeks abysmal performance would be, Robbo, Chimb, Rocha, Gardner, Lee, Taraabt, Hudders, Zok, Malbranque, Bent, Defoe
4-4-3? I think tactically 4-4-4 is better
Spurs will never get into the top 4 until we get a better keeper. Robbo's a great guy but he doesn't command his area. No wonder our defence always looks shakey. If jol can't see this he is no doubt living on borrowed time. Cerny is by far a better option. Team for Derby. Cerny Chimbonda Dawson( if fit ) Rocha Lee( if fit ) Jenas Boateng Huddlestone Taraabt Keane Bent Subs Alnwick Stalteri Zakora Malbranque Barnard
bale & yp back training,,,
Mj's brother Kock told me he was ready for a complete change this week...team could be :MalbranqueKeane (Capt. and ass.mgr)RobinsonHuddlestoneRoutledgeBentDeFoeStaltieriDawson (if fit)ChimbondaZokoraThe plan is to pass the ball back to Malbranque so that he can dribble up the entire length of the field while the other players run interference....apparently David Beckham passed on the tactics from his American Football coach.Should be a winner
Right my team... CernyChimp Dawson Rocha Lee\Bale THUDDDMalbranque Boateng\Bale Taarabt Bent KeanoooBeautiful I say, no average Jenas and Zokora in the centre of the park. Obviously my defence may change depending on who could play, but remember Rocha is always very good at left back and to avoid playing Gardner Chimbonda could move into the centre. COYS
PRPCAGRRPSTHZZJJRKJDDBhave little choice with the defence as nobody else is fit
As we're on the subject, how about this as a completely alternative team?GK CernyRB IfilCB ChimbondaCB RochaLB DanielsRM RoutledgeCM Huddlestone (Capt)CM MurphyLM TaarabtCF DefoeCF PekhartYou get youth, pace, enthusiasm, creativity, coupled with experience and all are fit and I reckon up for the scrap!Come on Jol - show us your bollox.COYS
Dannyboy, been through your team selection with a fine tooth comb mate. Hate to be the one to break it to you, but you've only got 11 players.I'm surrounded by amateurs!
My comb also appears to have teeth missing!Murphy??? My days!
Murphy = run out of fit alternatives! Suppose I could say O'Hara instead. Forgot we're playing 4 4 3 tomorrow; tell you what, chuck in Dixon as well. Bingo! Let's win all our games 8-7.coys
A deal's a deal.When they are doing the scores on BBC they won't knoe if we're a Badminton or a Basketball team.COYS!
dannyboy - if you switch Murphy for Steed (playing him in his natural position, what a concept!) that team would kill the team we've been starting this season. Watched Pekhart play in the U20's -very smooth player, wonderful first touch, looks like a young Berbatov. Gonna be a star.HH- so you wanted to see how many people were actually reading your comments, eh?
Vinny - As ever in accordance...Daytripper - Too kind mate...It was more a case of Blogger playing up all day, fonts going ex large and off centre of their own accord, then jumbled text... plus me changing my mind, just before publishing (only 12 times) ... and me not proofing!I guess HH was never supposed to be a funeral parlour...
How about this team Harry?...a fine 3-6-9-4 formation.Paul RobinsonRadek CernyBen AlnwickPascal ChimbondaPaul StalteriPhil IfilAnthony GardenerRicardo RochaDorian DervitteDidier ZokoraJermaine JenasDanny MurphyHossam GhalySteed MalbranqueAdel TaarabtTom HuddlestoneJamie O HaraKevin Prince BoatengRobbie KeaneJermaine DefoeLee BarnardDarren BentThe idea is with 3 goalkeepers - 1 goes for the crosses - Alnwick, one goes for the close shots - Robbo and the other for the long shots - Cerny (n definately not Robbo on that one). All other shots all 3 of them standing on the line should do the job.In defence we can have Dervitte and Chimbonda sitting behind Rocha and Gardener to make an extra layer of central defence and to put out any fires they create.9 midfielders to help out jenas and Zokora, they are far over worked and shouldn't be expected to win games alone(that rules Murphy out then!).Four forwards to bamboozle the hell out the Derby defence if they're not already scratching their heads wondering whether there are more players in white shirts than there should be (presuming they can count that is)or have they still got double vision from that almighty midland lads piss up the night before?Whoever we put out, I love you Tottingham...COYS!
Go on The Vinster!
lol, everyones slating you harry mate.....
lol HH...:0)It's good to have a laugh about the current situation instead of being depressed about it, easier said than done I know.After tomorrow's game hopefully things will be back to nearer normal with everyone who had an opinion in the past 2 weeks slagged off by other fans who kept silent and will tell us how fickle we all were lol!
12.56 Surely not... ;)I am very serious and revered football journalist! Lol...
Tema news on official site.Asked if he'd ever encountered such problems at the start of a season, Martin added: "We've known about Ledley, Aaron and Gareth Bale from day one so the real problems are Younes, Teemu, Michael and Younes, because they've all happened in the last week." You ARE Martin Jol arent you.
