With Tottenham looking to continue their unbeaten start to the new campaign, the focus shifts to the Carling Cup on Wednesday evening against Donacaster Rovers, 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 give a run-out to the likes of Giovani Dos Santos.

Have your say below by leaving your Spurs starting eleven.

Here’s what we have come up with:-

Cudicini

Naughton – Bassong – Corluka – Assou Ekotto

Bentley - Dos Santos - O’Hara – Rose

Pavlyuchenko – Crouch

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. That looks a reasonable side and one capable of winning – the only change I would make would be to the full backs – play Chimbonda at left back and Hutton on the right.

  2. I would swap Boateng with Dos Santos in the middle, and put DS to the left instead of Rose

    Agree with Crumulent with the full back decision.

  3. Cudicini
    Naughton – Bassong – Corluka – Bale
    Bentley – Dos Santos – O’Hara – Rose
    Pavlyuchenko – Crouch

  4. There have been times when I have thought it right to sell. But this is not one of them.

    The only things that successful clubs give away is advice.

    The facts that MU have lost their best player and lost 1 of 3 to a likely relegation prospect are likely indicators that they need a boost.

    If we GIVE them a boost by trading our best player either for money or money + a player that left our club to go to “the best club in the world” then e are just plain stupid.

    I say stay with our squad. Build on it year after year by adding 1 or 2 quality players. After all, this has been the recipe of those in the “top 4” for years and years and years.

    It’s no longer an exclusive “top 4” club and Spurs are applying for membership. Let’s just treat others as we have been treated for generations.

    If we trade Modric, we are consigning ourselves to mediocrity … AGAIN!

  5. Cudicini

    Hutton – Chimbonda – Bassong – Naughton

    Bentley – Boetang – O’Hara – Bale

    Crouch – Pavlyuchenko

  6. 4-4-2 CUDICINI, LB CHIMONDA RB HUTTON CB BASSONG CB CORLUKA RM GIO DOS SANTOS LM ROSE CM O’HARA CM BOATENG ST CROUCH ST PAV

  7. More what I would play rather than what I think ‘Arry will pick.

    ————-Cudicini—————

    Hutton–Bassong–Chimbonda–Naughton

    Bentley—O’Hara——Bostock—-Gio

    ———–Pav——-Defoe———-

    Subs: Button, Corluka, Dervite, Thudd, KPB, Rose, Crouch,

  8. Cudicini

    Hutton – Dervitte – Bassong – Naughton

    Bentley – Bostock – O’Hara – Dos Santos

    Crouch – Pav

    Subs – Button, Corluka, BAE, Defoe, Palacios, Boetang, Rose

  9. ______________Cudicini______________
    Hutton___Corluka____Bassong___Chimbo
    Bentley__Hudd_______Palacios__O’Hara
    _____Pavlyuchenko_____Keane_________

  10. —————————————Cudicini————————————

    Hutton–Bassong–Chimbonda–Naughton

    Bentley—O’Hara——Boateng—Dos Santos

    pav and crouch

  11. I predict a following line up: Cudicini; Hutton, Chimbonda, Dervite, O´Hara; Bentley, Boateng, Giovani, Rose, Pavlyuchenko, Crouch. Subs: Button, Naughton, Bassong, Parrett, Bostock, Palacios, Obika.

  12. happily for everyone involved, GDS will be soon leaving for Milano…Harry will be happy, since he thinks Dos Santos is nothing, Inter will be happy, since they will get a world class winger for next to nothing and GDS will play regular football.

  13. same side as what was at west ham except id bring hutton in for ledley,its better to keep the momentum going, winning breeds confidence

  14. I dont think any first choice CBs, or the GK, will be risked given our shortage. I expect something like

    Button
    Hutton Chimbo Dervitte Rose
    Naughton Boateng O’Hara Dos-Santos
    Crouch Pav

  15. Give the rest of the squad a run out, as we don’t have a reserve team, but keep some big players on the bench, (just in case).

    Button
    Hutton Chimbo Dervitte Naughton
    Bentley Boateng O’Hara Dos-Santos
    Pav Crouch

    Subs: Cudicini Bassong Hudd Modric Lennon Keane Defoe

  16. I think this will be the line-up

    Cudicini
    Hutton
    Corulka
    Chimbonda
    Naughton
    Bentley
    Huddlestone
    Bostock
    O’Hara
    Pav
    Crouch

  17. Cannot give Bassong the nightmare of playing with a third new partner in 11 days, so Corluka Bassong at centre back. Palacious should not be risked,(15 hr. trip back from Honduras International match just before start of season) and deserves a rest. A&E and Modders looked rather weary at end of hammers match, also candidates for feet up. Hutton/Bentley/Pav seem an interesting trio. Defoe will see the chance of more goals beckoning and will insist on starting. so team is Cudicini,Hutton,Corluka,Bassong,Chimbonda,Bentley,O'Hara,Hudd,Rose,Defoe, Defoe,Pav. Subs Button, Naughton, Boeteng, Bostock, Keane, Lennon, Crouch. COYS.

  18. ———-cudicini————-

    bentley-boateng—o’hara—gio
    ——-crouch—-pav——–
    subs:button, dervitte, chimbonda, huddlestone,bostock(boateng), rose(gio), defoe,
    hope gio, hutton, boateng n bentley have good game need to prove thier worth. even lookin at that side in our best 11 none of those r playing. n we still have jenas, bale to come n livermore when he gets back from loan looks like he will be a good player in the making.

  19. don’t want to risk first eleven injured, need to rest them for
    the birmingham as we can see against last match they all look jaded

    BUTTON
    NAUGHTON DERVITE CHIMBONDA HUTTON
    ROSE DOS SANTOS O HARA BENTLEY
    PAV CROUCH

    SUBS
    PRINCE – O HARA
    LIVERMORE – ROSE ( SWITCH WITH DOS SANTOS )
    BUTCHER – HUTTON ( SWITCH WITH CHIMBONDA )

  20. hope we start pav and keane as wanna see crouch and defoe start on sat. Also wanna see naughton, bale, bostock, gio, o’hara, and 90min from bentley

  21. azrin84 – Right on the mark. Rest the first 11. Let them go away from football. Fishing or movie or whatever. Just don’t let them play.

  22. Gio was the reason I was so happy when Ramos joined becouse even though Ramos was not sucsessful at spurs. Players like Gio and Modric only joined us becouse of him thats a fact.

    For a player who actualy reminds me of Messi and has done so well with Mexico receiving MVP award in the Concaf cup and Ipswich where he scored 4 in 8 games and got countless man of the match awards. I think there is some polotics we do not know about stopping him at spurs. If he was an english youth I know we would be going mad about him over here becouse he has so much skill and pace.

    In the end it’s the spurs fans who will miss out!!! thanks alot Harry just becouse you did not buy them does not mean there not good!

  23. Arry aint gona play Dos Santos cos he dont like him, shame cos the boy aint had a chance. for tonights match i’d be playin

    Button
    Naughton
    Charlie
    Dervitte
    O’hara
    Bentley
    Boateng
    bostock
    Gio / Rose
    Pav
    Crouch / Keane

  24. era todo Gio felicidades, no pudimos ver el partido aca en MEXICO pero sabemos que luchas por que te tome en cuenta ese entrenador que no te valora ni porke muchos equipos te quieren en sus filas
    perono te desanimes etas muy joven y tienes mucho camino por delante, solo cuidate y mantente concentrado. no pierdas el piso
    felicidades

  25. i would love to see giovani dos santos at manchester united….. but we have to put up with a shite left winger like valencia. if harry redknapp isnt gonna take him serious, then gio should definitely move to united!!!!
