'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool.

Tottenham's second serious pre season outing is highly interesting on several levels.

Two clubs that have removed experienced and arguably out-dated managers, for hoped for bright, technically astute 'Coach/Managers' who despite having career early success, will both be seen as gambles by many, and will probably both consider themselves to have plenty of work to do to build a team and playing ethos to complement their own ideas.

Two teams from the same country and league are always interesting tactical encounters, partly because they know each other so well, but are also desperate not to lose, as much as they want to win. A heavy defeat for either tonight will put instant pressure of the coming season regardless of how strong the teams actually are on the day.

Perhaps though this is more from the fans and media, and from a coaches perspective, playing a weaker side or a team that offers plenty of changes, at least makes any result appear to be all about preparation and fitness as opposed to mind games for the start of what I expect to be strong seasons for both.

Tonights staring line ups: Tottenham: Friedel; Naughton, Gallas, Kaboul, Assou-Ekotto; Jenas, Livermore; Lennon, Sigurdsson, Bale; Kane Liverpool: Jones, Enrique, Flanagan, Skrtel, Carragher, Spearing, Shelvey, Adam, Downing, Cole, Morgan.
