YOU’RE THE BOAS: Pick your Tottenham team vs Tromso


Tottenham face Tromso in the Europa League on Thursday as AVB looks to bring European glory back to White Hart Lane.

Given our fixture pile-up since the Football League has decided that Tottenham will play Aston Villa in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, just two days after the north London club face Cardiff in the Barclays Premier League.

It means AVB’s squad will play three games in six days.

If you were AVB – what would your Tottenham starting XI be against Tromso?


Naughton Kaboul Dawson Rose

Townsend Sandro Holtby Lamela



Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. My selection would be similar. With all due respect to Tromso, I think we should try to play more of our fringe / less experienced players for this game, and rest some of our better ones so they're fresh for the league / league cup games. While Chiriches might go on to be a regular first team player, this might be a good opportunity to integrate him within the team. My selection (assuming Chadli's not still injured):


    Naughton Kaboul Chiriches Fryers

    Sandro Dembele

    Chadli Holtby Lamela


  2. Freidel; Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Fryers; Sigurdsson, Sandro, Holtby; Lamela, Soldado, Townsend. SUBS: Lloris, Dawson, Rose, Paulinho, Dembele, Eriksen, Defoe.

  3. My Team would be Friedel,Naughton,Kaboul,Vlad(if Working permit problem solved),Rose,holtby,sandro,siggurdson,lamela,kane.


  4. With 3 games in 6 days this is where i expect to see rotation and the strength of the squad used. I would expect no player to start in all 3 games that would be to much but i also expect with our depth to go out and win all 3 games.

  5. ————–Friedel—————





  6. Friedel
    Naughton, kaboul, chiriches, fryers
    sandro, paulinho
    townsend, holtby, lamela
    gotta rest our starters for a tough match away at cardiff

  7. i reckon we should give players a rest, so i think this should be the team, Friedel – Naughton – Kaboul – Chiriches – Fryers – sandro – paulinho – Holtby – Sigursson – Lamela – Defo

  8. Latest news is that work permit has NOT come through for Vlad and that Chadli and Lennon are still undergoing treatment for minor injuries which are proving troublesome. Capuoe still 2 weeks away.

    With 3 games inside 122 hours we need to rotate considerably – especially with Chelski barely a week ago.

    I´d go for –

    Naughton – Kaboul – Dawson – Fryers
    ——— Sandro ——— Holtby———–
    Lamela ———- Siggy ———— Kane
    ——————– Defoe ——————–

    If all going well take Dawson and Siggy off with 30 mins to go as will probably play on Sunday – but leave them out next Tuesday.

  9. ————————Freidel—————————-



    ———————– Sandro—————————-


    Siggy—————————————– –Lamela


  10. There are certain players that definitely need 90 minutes under their belt and with the quality of opposition in ALL Europa League games this will be an opportunity for them to fight for an EPL starting place.

    Friedel, Naughton, Kaboul, Fryers, Sandro, Holtby Lamela & Defoe are must starts. Pick another three from the remaining squad.

    Maybe a 4-1-3-2 formation with Kane up front with Defoe and Sandro as the sole defensive midfielder.
