12 men........sure fire way to beat 'um

Anonymous said...

That looks a good side, but not sure you will get away with it as you have 12 players.

Mark said...

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!!

Anonymous said...

We're bound to win if we can get 12 players on the pitch like in your team Harry! lol

Anonymous said...

good choice...we need 12 on the pitch at the moment!!

You have 12 players....

Anonymous said...

I think you've taken some liberties with injuries there HH... more realistically I think it'll be

Robinson
Rocha/Gardner/Chimbonda/Stalteri
Malbranque/Zokora/Huddlestone/Jenas
Keane/Bent

Obviously this is a terrifyingly unadventurous selection, but Jol is going to be ultra-cautious I feel...

Anonymous said...

Robbo
Chimbo Daws, Gardner Lee
Routeledge, Huddlestone, Boateng, Taarabt.
Defoe, Bent

Wont happen tho, golden balls jenas cant be dropped until his balls do.

agree with that selection but somehow don't think we'd get away with fielding all 12!

Ter said...

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?

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!

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...

Is that a joke?? are we allowed to play with 12 men this week?? Bale and Dawson are not in the squad!

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

Anonymous said...

But seriously.......

How about this

Robinson

Ifil
Chimbonda
Gardner
Rocha

Jenas
Huddlestone
Zokora
Taarabt

Keane
Bent

Cerny
Stalteri
Malbranque
Routledge
Defoe

Assuming Dawson's still out and Boateng's not quite ready

Anonymous said...

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.

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

Anonymous said...

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.

balders77 said...

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.

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. :)

Cowboy said...

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!

Anonymous said...

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?

Looks lie a good team with a few small problems!
1. You have 12 players in your starting 11.

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.

slanario said...

I think using 12 players instead of the regulation 11 might give us a slight advantage. Otherwise I would start with Defoe & Bent upfront.

Anonymous said...

taarabt on left with hudd & zok in middle for me, jenas on the right as boateng still not fit

Your only allowed 11 players in soccer Harry

Anonymous said...

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, Defoe

Think 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!

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

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.

Dawson (if fit)

The 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.

Beautiful 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

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?

Harry Hotspur said...

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...

Vinny said...

How about this team Harry?...a fine 3-6-9-4 formation.

Paul Robinson
Radek Cerny
Ben Alnwick

Pascal Chimbonda
Paul Stalteri
Phil Ifil
Anthony Gardener
Ricardo Rocha
Dorian Dervitte

Didier Zokora
Jermaine Jenas
Danny Murphy
Hossam Ghaly
Steed Malbranque
Adel Taarabt
Tom Huddlestone
Jamie O Hara
Kevin Prince Boateng

Robbie Keane
Jermaine Defoe
Lee Barnard
Darren Bent

The 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!
