You’re the boss: Who should start vs Bolton


Harry Redknapp - Header

With Tottenham looking to build upon last weekend’s impressive 5-0 win against Burnley, the focus shifts to the Reebok Stadium on Saturday where Spurs will face Bolton Wanderers, with a lot of fans are already debating about what the team should be.

The Spurs faithful are already waiting to see Harry Redknapp will pick a more physical side to handle Bolton.

Have your say below by leaving your Spurs starting eleven.

Here’s what we have come up with:-


Corluka – Dawson – Bassong – Assou-Ekotto

Lennon – Huddlestone – Palacios – Kranjcar

Keane – Crouch

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I agree, mainly. Although with Crouch upfront and a physical tussle expected, I would rest Lennon and play Bentley. It’s time to back the lad. He has a good delivery and Crouch is upfront. I would bring Lennon on in the 2nd half, if necessary; to run at a lumbering tired defence and finish them off.

    Bentley is not a bad player, hew is just playing badly, he has a good delivery and needs to play to gain confidence. Last season, his delivery was negated when he was trying to find Defoe, Keane or a head shy Darren Bent (who set Bent up against Portsmouth with a sublime cross that Sandra would have scored – Bentley). This is his chance and he will thrive!

    Jenas or Hudd is tricky; I think you have called this one right though.

    Cud or Gomes: again Gomes. Has to be; Cud looking more and more shaky.

    Dawson back as soon as possible. He will look quality with Bassong.

    Bale as a sub on the Left, to give flexiblity all across the midfield by either: Removing kranc; removing Palacios (if he has yet another yellow card) removing Thudd, thus pushing Krancjar into CM.

  2. Gomes
    Alan Hutton
    Benoît Assou Ekotto
    Michael Dawson
    Sébastien Bassong
    Wilson Palacios
    Jermaine Jenas
    Aaron Lennon
    Niko Kranjcar
    Roman Pavlyuchenko
    Peter Crouch

  3. Pav, Pav, super Pav – wot you mean he’s injured, when did that ever stop Spurs;-D

    Keane – but Pav if he weren’t injured (Pav, Pav, Super Pav…)

  4. Gomes
    Corluka Dawson Bassong Assou-Ekotto
    Lennon Huddlestone Palacios Kranjcar
    Keane Crouch

    If we are comfortable in the 2nd half let bentley have a run around. Don’t start him.

  5. Agrees with Paul. Should give Bently a chance. Since joining Spurs, he has turn from a bently to a skoda… I think it’s the right time for him to change back to his name sake.

  6. Gomes
    Corluka Dawson Bassong Bale
    Bentley Huddlestone Palacios Lennon
    Keane Crouch

    Crouch need all the crosses from bale, lennon and bentley.

  7. Gomes
    Corluka Dawson Bassong BAE
    Bentley Thudd Sgt Bale
    Keane Crouch

    Think Crouch will enjoy the crosses from Bentley and Bale, maybe he can get 4 this week and confuse Harry even more!

  8. I shall replace my tn hat in readiness for the possibility of many a stone coming my way,but I just fancied something a little different so here goes







    As you can see I am feeling extremely brave,but obviously I am never going to get the chance to put this formation into practice anyway,is that a big sigh of relief I hear,or just masses of laughter.

  9. Gomes

    Corluka Dawson Bassong Benoit-Ekotto

    Bently Huddlestone Palacios Bale

    Keane Crouch

    Subs : Lennon, Pav, Hutton, Cudicini, Krancjar, Naughton, Dos Santos
