YOU’RE THE BOSS: Who should start vs Stoke City?


Niko Kranjcar

Spurs face a tough trip to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke City.

What we want to know is, if you were Harry Redknapp – what would your Spurs starting XI be?

We’ve got a number of injury problems, with Peter Crouch being the only fit striker we have available.

Here’s what we have come up with:-


Corluka King Dawson Assou-Ekotto

Lennon Huddlestone Kranjcar Bale




Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Harry shuld introduce a couple of bright young lads in the team. say Kyle walker, Danny Rose or Obika. Maybe he should rest Modric for Wenesday

  2. I think that Harry will go into this knowing that the game on Wednesday has priority, and so i can't see the King playing this weekend. Also Modric was subbed with an injury on Tuesday so can't see us risking him either. Where did you hear Crouch was the only available striker? As far as I was aware Defoe was the only one out.
    I'd go with Gomes, BAE, Bassong, Daws, Corluka, Bale, Kranjcar, THudd, Lennon, Keane, Crouch
    although I'm not sure Harry sees Kranjcar in the middle, so maybe Wilson will step into that role, and I wouldn't be surprised if Pav played instead of Crouch, as Harry tends to play the strikers as pairs…

  3. No ! No ! No ! and No ! again. WE HAVE AN ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE "MUST WIN" CHAMPS LGE Qualifier game next Wednesday…9 of the 11 the most important players need to be rested (and only 2 of those on the bench !!!) !!!


    Kaboul Dawson Bassong Assou-Ekotto

    Dos Santos Palacios Kranjcar Rose

    Crouch Keane

    Bench: Gomes, Walker, Naughton, Jenas/Livermore, Pav)

    GOD I'm so glad you guys aren't the managers putting in the likes of Bale, Defoe, Lennon, Pav etc…..

  4. Or…play Jenas in the middle with Krankie (Livermore on the bench) and Crouchie up front on his own (if Keane is injured)…

  5. Now I hear both Dos Santos and Pav are also inured (pfff !) so my REVISED 11 for Stoke:


    Kaboul Dawson Bassong Assou-Ekotto

    Kranjcar Palacios Jenas Rose

    Crouch Obika

    Bench: Gomes, Hutton, Walker, Naughton, Livermore

    Pretty thread-bare I know, but I honestly couldn't give a monkeys and as long as we come out with at least 1 point, I'd be happy with that !

    • Pretty sure most our guys could do with another 90 minutes under their belts, we rested a few players on Wednesday and looked awful, don't think we can afford to do it again.
      Gomes, Charlie, Dawson, Bassong, BAE
      Lennon (if fit), Wilson, Thudd, Bale

      P.S. Gio was awful the other night, didn't he even come out for the second half?

      • Why oh why..on the eve of our BIGGEST night…you're willing to risk Gomes, Charlie, Lennon (if fit…WTF ?), Huddlestone, BALE ! all to get injured against a physical Stoke side for the sake of a £20mil kitty and a shot at the Champions League ???????????????????…complete and utter madness in my opinion…And yes ! I'd rather risk Jenas than play any of the aforementioned players any day for the sake of Wednesday's game ! I'm pretty sure most guys DON'T need another 90 minutes, they can train the next 5 days and build up their fitness playing 5 a side games…
