    Dont know abt that Lought, new players seem to start well and Cheatski are so open as they only have attacking midfielders, Terrys had it and
    Lampard can score, but cant get back as his engine has gone.
    Pardew has a dilemma though, as Tiote is back from ACN, does he sacrifice one of the new attacking frogs to make them more solid in the middle, anyway cant wait as im going.

    tiote was not playing well before the ACN so if i was pardew i would leave the team as it is.

    have a good day thought and hope we get the 3 points we need and a clean sheet to help my dream team points lol

    New Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby says he is on cloud nine since arriving in the "motherland of football" just a week ago.

    Holtby has already played twice for Spurs since joining from Bundesliga club Schalke, and says his feet have not touched the ground since he arrived in London.

    "I have been living my dream for the past few days," he said. "I am playing at an absolute top club in the Premier League."

    Holtby, whose father is English, had never made a secret of his desire to play in England, although his transfer came sooner than he had expected, but not soon enough for his liking.

    "It has been overwhelming since arriving in the motherland of football," he wrote in his blog published on www.fussball.de.

    "The day the transfer went through, I left for London with just a small suitcase and a few hours later, I was already on the Tottenham training ground, getting the traditional kick up the backside from my new team mates by means of welcoming me. That's the way things are here in London - hard but hearty."

    The Germany under-21 captain has not taken long to settle in, making a good impression in his first two appearances. That, according to the 22-year-old, is because he was made for English football.

    "I realised immediately that the speed and the toughness really is different here to the Bundesliga," he continued. "It's no place for the faint-hearted and the referees don't blow the whistle as often.

    "The game is brutally hard, but that suits me and I really love it. I also loved my second game for Spurs, in which a dream goal from Gareth Bale meant I could celebrate my first win.

    "I will never forget this game against West Brom. The fans sang a song for me for almost all of the second half. It was incredible and I really had goosebumps. I had never expected such support so soon. I've just been in England a week and they already have a song for me, who would have thought it?"

    I looked on the net for the song, anyone hear what it was?

    Holtby looks a good buy. Just a shame we're going to have to wait and see him and Sandro in the same line-up. Deffo looks llike AVB will be going back to the lone striker.
    Lloris
    ( Any 4 from)
    Walker/Dawson/Kaboul/Vertonghen/Caulker/Naughton/Ekkotto
    Dembele Sandro Holtby
    Lennon Bale
    A.Striker

    The likes of Dempsey, Siggurdson , Thudd etc on the bench. Looks good . . . .

    Vis, I would play Holtby as a number 10 behind Ade, I posted on another thread that he is tenacious, got a great touch and can run all day, unlike VDV, leave Parker holding and Dembele moving the ball to the front two.

    Good call Dave. A new VdV who can hopefully take corners lol.
    How about this line-up then?

    Lloris
    (Any 4 from)
    Walker/Dawson/Kaboul/Vertonghen/Caulker/Naughton/Ekkotto
    Sandro
    Lennon Dembele Bale
    Holtby
    A.Striker

    That may well work (And I've gone for Sandro {fitness allowing} but Scotty Parker could easily play the holding role in front of the back four. Oh and don't get me started on how much better a back 3 would be lol) . . . . . . .

    So what we are stuck with is

    Hugo
    Walker. Daws. Verts. Benny
    Lennon. Parker Dembele. Bale
    Holtby
    Ade

    I'm hearing Kaboul could be back by early March
