This selection is based upon the need to meet the challenge head on. Spurs will need pace, ingenuity and wit to counter this lot. I believe that BMJ will exercise what he percieves as greater caution and we might expect to see him start sans Taarabt, avec Malbranque.
Chimbonda Dawson Kaboul Lee
Lennon Jenas Taarabt Bale
As a post script, I trust that Robinson's excellent showing against the Russians last night has boosted Spurs fans support but reminded him that he's actually not rubbish.
