Tottenham vs Aalborg: Rumours/Allegations/Bad Betting Advice Etc...

"The string-back just gives you a bit of extra purchase."

Team news is... that after receiving repeated comedy kicks up the bottom from JR, Kaboul is out. As too is Jermain Defoe with... a cold. After costing me £140 at the weekend, I do wish him a speedy recovery and hope it doesn't turn into anything nasty, like a little bout of pneumonia. Git.

Rumour has it that Paul Robinson has been suffering some problems in his personal life and this is the cause of his questionable form. Mind not in a good place etc etc. Let's hope that whatever ails him soon passes and we can all move on, eh? The way I see it, if I found out in the last few days, then even Jol knew week upon week ago and should have acted appropriately (rested him properly) as McClaren did. Ho hum.

King (ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)is highly unlikely to play before Christmas. Go figure. The bit the Daily Mail ran the other day in relation to LK's 'influence' even when injured - travelling away, being in the dressing room - all got up my nose. So what? Am I THE most miserable sod you've ever come across or am I a realist? Ledders is a hero, but no use to me OFF the pitch. I dearly want him back, but anything that isn't in the shirt, enjoying his game is hopeless. No?

Rocha, Gardner and Ekotto are all out. No comment.

My selection then:


Cerny

Chimbonda (subject to bail conditions) Dawson Lee
Zokora
Lennon Malbranque Jenas Bale
Keane Bent

Subs Berbatov, Tainio, Taarabt, Dervite, Robinson.



Now, how can I lose money this time out? Spurs to win 5-0 is only 18/1, reflecting the NO VALUE virtually everywhere. So it's non striker first goalscorer. After all, this is Tottenham! Lennon and Jenas are both as good as 11/1 so I'd for no particular reason have a nicker on Lennon.


COYS!

I can't tell Harry. Have you got a 5 man midfield or Daws & Lee as centre-backs with Zokora at left-back?

Our midfield looks SO mid-table.

How awful we're missing a defender who can't defend and a striker who can't score, what shall we do!?

Harry where did you hear the rumour about Robbo's personal problems? Very surprised about that! As a gossip fiend I must know more!!

Adam said...

Yeah, Robbo is losing it. I bumped into him on London Bridge yesterday. He was trying to cross the road with his kid in a pram. Muttering something along the lines of 'Kaboul...fucking ballsed up....making me look bad.....fucking media pressure...and fucking wrighty7 saying horrible things on Harry Hotspurs blog. I am going to put my boot so far up his arse he will be able to taste the turf from that divot during the Croatia match!!!!!'

Wrighty7 mate, you have got more to worry about than being fired from HH blog. I'd pack up and leave the country. And dont ever come on HH and say horrible things about Spurs again!!!

What did Wrighty7 say? It's deleted, like him I guess.

It's Them and Us said...

Why is everyone acting like Chimbonda was arrested yesterday? He was arrested for questioning in September and has been playing ever since, including the day AFTER he was arrested. Aye aye aye.

The team would be for me:

Robbo

Stalteri Dawson Chimbonda Lee

Lennon Zokora Jenas Bale

Keane Berbatov

I'd stick with Robbo because at the minute the guy seems to be hitting form and an easy shift tonight should help with that. The reason I don't include Steed is because, unlike Bale who's had a lot of time off and needs the games, I'd hate to think we rushed him back. You could even rest Keane and give Berbatov and Bent a chance to see what they can do, because Keano has nothing to prove this season whereas those two do.

Probably 3-1. Berbatov, Bent, Bale. Three B's!

bueller said...

Cook Pass Babtridge.

Taking my old man to the game tonight.

Will wear my "I hate Jenas/I love Jenas *Delete as appropriate" T-shirt.

I am predicting 3-1 Spurs. Berba (2) and Boateng.

'Ere Adam, when u boot me up the arse I advise u to not wear any of the boots that the Spurs players wear cos they normally miss!

Summerspur said...

and if he missed its an odds on certainty you would fall to the floor clutching your face rolling about,

Wrighty7 said...

Ha ha! Thats quite funny Summerspur, how did u get on here? Someone open ur cage?

Summerspur said...

if my cage was open as often as your backside i would never be off here

Wrighty7 said...

Summerspur, be careful now. If u think too much it might sprain ur brain.

0-2?? in 37 mnt???.....

shanemac said...

I don't care how this fucking match ends, I never want to see Zokora and Jenas together on the pitch ever again. This is bloody ridiculous.

shanemac said...

I retract the tone of my last comment, but i still believe we're better off without that pairing.
