King Out for England And A Rose Blooms at Watford

Ledley King has left the England squad ahead of the qualifier this weekend. With so many central defenders in the squad, he was unlikely to feature, and really training would only hinder his chances of playing throughout the rest of the season for Spurs.

I feel so bad for Ledley, his injury is so frustrating, it doesn't limit his ability, but only his fitness. As someone who has had some knee injuries as well, I understand his frustrations. He could be a regular for England, but his knee will never allow him to feature regularly. He can't be in a World Cup squad I would think because of the number of games in such a short amount of time.

As sad as I am for Ledley and his England dream, I am happy as a Spurs fan, hopefully he will be able to rest over the next week and a half and be fit for the match against Blackburn next Saturday. Let's all keep our fingers crossed.

In other Spurs news, another of our young starlets has gone out on loan until the end of the season. Danny Rose has been loaned out to Watford as they struggle to remain in the Championship. Rose is another one of our talented youngsters, like Jonathan Obika and Andros Townsend, who went out on loan last week. This loan will let Rose get a little bit of time on the field and get him ready to feature in the preseason for us next year.

While Rose is young, he has loads of talent, and as a winger, could be a possible answer for us at that troublesome left wing position. But with the way the midfield is playing at the moment, do we want to mess with a good thing? Tell me what you think.
