Spurs Stars On Tonight’s Game

Good morning ladies.

I’ve heard two things. One is we’re playing tonight and the second is that there is a distinct chance that Modders will be on the bench and may well yet feature. The odds are we will get more to chew on as the day progresses, but here’s a round up of quotes to get the juices flowing.

Jimmy Greaves knows a thing or two about about Italian football…

“When I was playing  in Milan there was only two flights a week and I used to miss both of ’em. They’ve got to attack, they can’t sit back. Good luck to Spurs tonight!”

Billy Wingrove  is an ambassador for both Spurs and Milan, travelling the world to launch soccer schools, foundation projects and is a high profile Tottenham fan.

“Ive worked for Milan and Spurs all over the world. They are a great club, with a fantastic histroy especially in the champions league.
But come tonight I’ll be wearing my lilywhite shirt pleading for a spurs result.
I love Milan, the people, the club, and some of the players like Zlatan are good friends…….but when it comes to Spurs, friends come second!
I think we can do it over both legs. Injuries or no injuries. When you step out to that pitch with a full house, whether youre a player or a freestyler about to perform – it just lifts you 20%! But if we cant win the Champions League, I hope Milan do!!”

Billy Bonds is upbeat about the tie..

“It would be terrific if we could get a better result than Inter and top the group then play someone who’s finished second, which you would think would be better for you. Anyone can win a cup competition. We’ll see who we get [in the draw] but down at White Hart Lane, no matter who it is, we’ll give them a run for their money.”

Peter Crouch is cautious…

“Thanks to the coach we have great confidence in ourselves.  We will go to Milan without fear trying to play our usual game and win. At home I am convinced we can beat anyone, so we can get there in the end. “

Van der Vaart is happy to be at Tottenham and believes we should be feared…

“I’m happy if people appreciate me as a person as well as a footballer. I try to be open and available to everyone, because my parents taught me to be so. I try to behave like a normal person. I’m at home watching football on TV, sometimes I play tennis, go out like everyone else. I do not really like going to the party: I am a footballer, not a star. Madrid is a fantastic place, a club among the strongest in the world.

The Spurs are a team that plays a good football and has many great players. If we play together a few years we can become a great team. The competition with Milan? ‘a very open game, but we have beaten Inter and also we know we can beat AC Milan. And then the return in house gives us a great advantage. I think everyone should fear coming to play at White Hart Lane. “

    Still cant believe we are in the fucking thing

    My preferred starting line-up (assuming Modders unfit)

    Gomes
    Charlie, Gallas, Daws, A&E
    Lennon,Sandro,Peanut, Kranks
    VDV
    Crouch
    (VDV will need to drop into the 5 man midfield when on the offensive)

    If Modders fit;

    Gomes
    Charlie, Gallas, Daws, A&E
    Lennon, Wilson, Modric, Kranks
    VDV
    Crouch

    Prediction; at best a draw. Would love to have seen Thudd in action; a game made for him if ever there was one

    COYS; do us proud

      I don’t like your lineup with 3MP up front because Milan will kill us if we play hoof ball and don’t attack with speed, but I completely share your thoughts on Thudd.

      He and Seedorf are my two favourite players and the two best passers in the world. I was drooling over the thought of them going at it when I saw the draw.

      I also would like to see Woodgate starting and Dawson resting. As I have mentioned, ad nauseum, I like Daws a million times more at home than I do on the road.

      • toddspur says:

        I’m not 3MP’s biggest fan but away from home we will need an outlet. If we play Defoe or Pav then the midfield will be up against it. AT WHL I wouldnt dream of starting him

        As for Woody starting; surely he isnt match fit and therefore 1) will be a yard off the pace 2) will have no understanding with Gallas at all

        I must admit I dont know too much about Seedorf but he seems to have a lot of admirers….if he can pass the ball half as good as Thudd then Wilson or Sandro need to get at him

        • daytripper11 says:

          If they do play Seedorf tonight, it is imperative that more than one midfielder get on him immediately. Just like Thudd, he is incredible at repositioning the ball around his defender so he can launch a pass.

          Once he gets on the ball, watch how his fellow strikers and wingers immediately take off on runs behind defenders. What scares me about tonight is that Inter had great success making runs behind our defenders and AC Milan is the best in the world at doing that, except they have much better passers than Inter.

          I think Woodgate has to start for us to have a chance tonight. I wouldn’t mind Gallas sitting either. Gallas and Daws are not strong enough to defend Ibra. Or, better yet, how about Gallas and Woody in the centre and Daws out on the left?

        • toddspur says:

          Sorry I just cant see them having the pace to get behind us as you suggest. I dont know Pato but the other two aint speed merchants. Gallas and Daws def dont play a high line so that is also against this theory.

          Obviously you know more about Seedorfs vision and passing but having Woody in there alongside Gallas would be madness…IMHO of course

          It also seems you are suggesting a sweeper? Personally I love a sweeper but fear those days are long done

          My only reservation on the team I suggested earlier is Charlie or Hutton; Hutton has the pace but Charlie the brain…..do they have pace on the flanks?
