Bent starts versus Hull

Well, one thing about being a Tottenham fan is that you are always being surprised. Just when I was wondering if Darrent Bent was even going to make the bench for tonight's match he is in the starting eleven. Watching the prematch shows on Setanta, Les Ferdinand was asked about Bent's inclusion, and he said that Roman has picked up a knock in training yesterday, which I think has more to do with than anything else.

As another surprise, Jenas is in the starting eleven, joining Palacios, Modric and Lennon in the midfield. Now when I was thinking that Harry had tired of JJ and decided that he wasn't a starter for the club, in he comes for a massive match. That is somewhat sad that we are calling a match against Hull City massive, no disrespect to them, but we should be challenging for Europe, not struggling for survival, but that's how it goes.

Ledley makes the team tonight, delivering us a huge boost. As well as Dawson has played this year, King always brings us stability in the back. Now my question is, who leads us out, Ledley or Robbie? Setanta still has the (C) after Robbo's name, so we'll see.

Here is the team for tonight:


Corluka, Woodgate, King, BAE

Lennon, Modric, Palacios, Jenas,

Bent, Keane

Bench: Gomes, Chimbonda, Dawson, Bentley, Zokora, Huddlestone, Pavlyuchenko
