Spurs Team News for 3/20 & No Lennon for England?

Ahead of the big match versus Chelsea tomorrow there isn't much bad news coming out of the club, which is always good. Alan Hutton won't feature in the Chelsea match, Harry has stated that Hutton will play for the reserves on Monday evening before going off to join up with the Holland squad. He could be in for a place against Blackburn after the international window.

Jermain Defoe is inching closer to fitness. I would fully expect to see him training with the lads after the international break, and maybe featuring in the side by the middle of April.

4 Spurs were named to the England U-21 side yesterday, including Tom Huddlestone, Jamie O'Hara, Frazier Campbell and Aaron Lennon. Does this say something about Lennon's chances for a senior England call-up? A player is selected for both squads on occasion, but it doesn't happen too terribly often, so this could mean that even with his blistering form as of late, Lennon has not impressed Fabio Capello enough to get in the squad. What more does the little guy need to do to come back in from the international wilderness? We'll see when the senior England side is announced.

And finally, the club has reported a record 39.8 million pound profit for last year. So even spending like drunken sailors in the transfer market, we still managed to turn a profit thanks to the sales of Berbatov and Keane. Now I wonder how our books will look next year since we've been buying back all those players that we sold on.
