Spurs News for 3/14

The lads seem to be confident heading up to Aston Villa tomorrow. The team has few injury worries to deal with, with Hutton and Defoe being the only ones out with injuries, and both are expected back in training relatively soon.

The players are saying all of the right things ahead of the match with Villa, with Ledley King and Harry talking about how Spurs need to follow Villa's example of how to go about the League next year, with the same results hopefully to follow. It seems to be a love fest between the two clubs, so I am expecting a fierce battle tomorrow, nothing dirty, but good hard football.

Tom Huddlestone has discussed his uncertain future again at Spurs. He said that you never know what will happen in football, and isn't sure of what his future will hold, even though he has four years left on his contract. He also stated that he would expect "a number of changes" at the club in the summer, which would seem strange. I have a feeling some new players will come in, but only a few will be leaving, but Tom is more in the know of course, so we will see.

Harry has reiterated that he will be the one making transfer decisions in the summer, and he alone, unlike in prior years. He also said that he won't be selling Luka Modric & Aaron Lennon in the summer, which will be good news for the club.

I'm expecting a similar lineup to the one we've been using in the last couple of weeks. My only real question would if Darren Bent will start again, or if Roman Pavlyuchenko will get the nod tomorrow. Here is my early lineup for the club tomorrow:


Corluka, Woodgate, King, BAE

Lennon, Palacios, Jenas, Modric

Keane, Pavlyuchenko

Substitutes: Cudicini, Dawson, Chimbonda, Huddlestone, Bentley, Zokora, Bent
