Spurs vs MU

Recommended Posts

First game of the season

 

                Lloris

Trippier Toby Vert Davies

        Dembele Bentaleb

       Chadli  Alli  Eriksen

               Kane      

 

 

Sub: Vorm, Dier, Rose, Carroll, Lamela, Mason, Onomah

 

Dembele and Alli will take turns to press the MU players up front.

I think we will have to close down the space in midfield. MU got players who can shoot from long range.

I agree 91%. Why Davies instead of Rose?

I'd go with that starting line up but play Rose instead of Davies. Hope Hugo is fit. Fear the worst but hoping for a point at least!!! Better to play MU early doors though. Their keeper & defence still vulnerable me thinks. COYS!!!!

Less than 24 hours now and I'm getting a touch stoked about it all. I know Man U is a tough out on opening day but I think we might actually be the more settled, put together side right now what with all the business LVG has done up there.

 

My XI if considered fit:

 

Lloris

Trippier Toby Verts Rose

Dembele Bentaleb

Lamela Eriksen Chadli

Kane

 

Subs: Vorm, Dier, Soldado, Carrol, Alli, Walker, Pritchard

I'd like to see Alli starting this game - I mean he was one of (if not the) best Spurs players against Real - wasn't fazed one single bit.

Also the fact that he didn't start against Milan kinda points to him starting against MU.

 

But then we all know that Mason is a Poch favourite, so wouldn't be surprised to see Ryan starting (but hopefully not) despite only just coming back from injury.

 

First game of the season against one of the supposed top 4, what have we got to lose?

I'd much rather get one of these games out of the way win, lose or draw so let's throw caution to the wind and go with the future, not the past.

Completely different mentality if this was one of the last games of the season and we were facing a possible 4th/5th/6th place.

First game of season shouldn't be approached with a cautious view.

If we lose, then no real surprises.

If we draw, then a good start.

If we win, even better!

Lloris ( one hand better than vorms two)

Tripper Toby very rose

Lamela dembelle bentaleb chadli

Eriksen Kane

Think we're lose this game in the middle, United have too much quality on the pitch settled or not, we have no defensive mid and one real goal threat That's likely to be marked out of he game, would be very tempted to put Ali in place of dembelle as the kid has half an idea what to do with it, but wouldn't won't to mess up his confidence for the sake of one game. 3-1 mancs

I think Poch will go with his preferred 4-2-3-1 to begin with.

Trippier/Walker. Toby. Vert. Rose (4)

Dembele Bentaleb (2)

Lamela Eriksen Chadli (3)

Kane (1)

Vorm. Dier. Alli. Walker/Trippier. Davis. Soldado. and maybe Carroll?

Lamela and Chadli instructed to close down and work the arse off, high up!

Result. 1-3. COYS!!

Spurs XI: Vorm, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies, Bentaleb Dier, Chadli, Eriksen, Dembele, Kane.

Hmm.

And we're off. COYS. Watching in bed from my home in Barbados and giving grief to the United fans I know. Good performance so far. Lets hope we keep it up...

Surely, Dembele was ONSIDE!

Shit...Manure go ahead....
