Starting Lineup Versus Everton

Sorry to those who read this blog regularly, I've been away tending to my grandfather, and have had no Internet access for awhile, but I'm back to keep you updated on our favorite team from here on out.

It will be a makeshift lineup against Everton today, who would be difficult enough to beat with a full-strength squad. Unfortunately, it appears another Spur has lost a brother, as Wilson Palacios' brother Edwin, who was kidnapped almost two years ago, has been found dead in Honduras. Wilson has traveled to Goodison with the rest of the lads, and sadly this is all too familiar for us, after Jermain Defoe didn't travel to Manchester after the horrific death of his brother. I know all Spurs fans thoughts are with Wilson and his family.

We've also been hit with the injury bug, as Aaron Lennon, Didier Zokora, Jamie O'Hara, BAE, Darrent Bent, and Michael Dawson miss the match through various injuries.

The team is below, and because of the injury concerns, Harry is deploying a new formation, a 3-5-2. He'll have Alan Hutton and Gareth Bale serve as wing-backs to hopefully overload the Everton midfield. Not sure if this is a winning team, but I'd take a draw. COYS!!

Starting Lineup:


Corluka, King, Woodgate

Hutton, Jenas, Huddlestone, Modric, Bale

Defoe, Keane

Substitutes: Cudicini, Gunter, Chimbonda, Bentley, Rose, Pavlyuchenko, Campbell
