Tottenham Hotspur vs. Panathinaikos.

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Panathinaikos.

A final group game in the Europa league and a win or bust outcome, seems to have stirred a little emotion, however not a great deal…

No Bale or Dawson. Still no Kaboul, BAE or Parker, despite the latter two being back in training and no Lloris who is being rested, hardly allows for massive team alterations without the unlikely situation where AVB decides to play a team of kids or fringe players, so you therefore assume that we will either go with as near to our best and freshest team as possible, or perhaps take the chance that the likes of Huddlestone, Carroll and Sigurdsson have enough quality to at least get the required minimum of a draw.

Of course picking a strongest team and hoping that you are 4-0 up at half time, enabling you to take off three big guns, but how practical is that really? Therefore I guess we either play an 70-80% full strength side and hope for the best or the players will simply have to play tonight and Sunday and look forward to a day or two's rest next week, as I feel in certain cases, AVB will chose to do to keep the players fresh going into the Christmas period.

I'm sure that AVB would love to rest a few players that have played almost every game and the likes of Sandro, Defoe and perhaps Lennon, could be potentially rested tonight whilst we don't know whether Dembele is yet 100% and able to play Thursday and Sunday. Others, such as Falque, Townsend, Sigurdsson, Hudd, Livermore, Carroll and Adebayor could easily be drafted in to allow a few players the opportunity to rest and focus on Sunday. After all, to many, the Premiership game is more important and you assume the harder game of the two, so are we better to keep a few players back and if our back up isn't good enough, then so be it. It might also work in AVBs favour when he talks to Daniel Levy about our pack of quality in depth, whilst also offering a potentially last chance to impress for some.

It is clear that Spurs are struggling for numbers in defence, with only five fit senior players to call upon. This in itself offers a few questions, such as how capable is william Gallas to play three games in eight days and how much fuel has Jan Vertonghen got left in the tank? Do we rest one (and which one) with Everton in mind? You get the feeling that Walker and Naughton can run all day and with Walker being rested recently and Naughton still trying to establish himself, this is a game where I feel that both should start and you then pick one of Jan or William to rest, perhaps there is even a though that either Livermore or Hudd could step into defence to at least be the replacement option if one of the starters has a problem.

Though Panathinaikos have a chance of qualifying should they win tonight, they are without question the weakest of the four teams in my opinion. I'm really not quite sure how they have managed to get themselves into this position, but equally, I struggle to understand why Spurs haven't already secured their top two place, aster throwing away so many points in the previous games. gaining a couple of points earlier, would have allowed AVB the luxury of resting far more players tonight, so in some cases, I suppose the players only have themselves to blame for having to fight for points at such a late stage...

I'm not sure I really buy into the 'tired players' argument. Players want and love to play. Maybe we should play our strongest team more often and spend less time tiring them in daily training. There is nothing like competitive match time to keep players fit and sharp. Let's do that and keep training for tactics and tricks rather than fitness and knackering players.

The players are to blame for losing us 4 points, the referees are also to blame for costing us 4 points and giving Lazio and extra 2. We must have the record for most goals disallowed against a single club in a single season. Knowing that 3 of those 4 should have counted is painful.

Completely agree Spurious. We seem to be obsessed on here with 'resting players' and 'keeping them fresh' for the PL. As AVB keeps pointing out, its a mental thing, not a physical thing. I personally love being in Europe (after fighting hard to qualify i can't quite understand those who can't wait to get out of it), but even for those who believe that finishing Top 4 is the be all and end all to everything in the football universe, this is still excellent conditioning for the time when we will HAVE to compete twice a week in CL and PL. It took the likes of Man U years to get used to playing competitively twice a week domestically and in Europe. AVB has got it spot on on all counts. We must get through this - this trophy comes alive in the Spring.

I would like to see siggy, carroll, naughton, hudd and falque or townsend play, even if we rest lennon, vertonghen/gallas, dembele, sandro, defoe etc we should still have enough quality to get a draw here. on the other hand i do want us to go through

The other thing is the arrogance that the PL seems to have instilled in us is staggering. Its like no other team from any other nation is any good (unless they are Barca or Madrid) and we should walk over them with our reserves out. According to the Spurs website they've lost only 1 in 8, beating PAOK (who beat us last season), drew with Lazio at the Olympic Stadium (as we did) on that run - they had a bad start to the season granted, but have since got a new manager who's got them playing. Not saying with a full strength team we shouldn't win, especially at home, but i don't understand the arrogance - they will be no mugs.

in some cases tiredness can be exaggerated, but what would you prefer, to have your players rested and fully focused for seven days for an important game that for two? whatever we make of twenty something athletes being tired, is is a no brainer that those who are better rested and better prepared for one game in a week as opposed to two have a greater chance of performing better

just to add, it isnt always about being a it tired, but also about knocks and strains picked up when playing a competetive game at 100% as opposed to playing an often non contact or certainly lower intensity training session that causes problems

I would not approach the theme "players getting some rest" for the sake of "rest" alone but I would consider not playing Sandro, Dembele, Vertonghem, Defoe and Lennon just to keep them away from any injury to add to our already lenghty list of sidelined players. Even so, Spurs can field a strong XI with Friedel-Walker-Gallas-Caulker-Naughton-Livermore-Huddlestone-Carroll-Sigurdsson-Dempsey-Adebayor backed by a bench of Cudicini, Verts, Falque, Defoe and Dembele if we really need them.

They will come and park the bus and try to nick a goal on the break. Playing for a draw is a bad idea. We need to be careful as we could find ourselves dumped out. Start with Adebayor and Defoe up top and put the game to bed early on. They can come off for the second half and rest then.

For goodness sake! When I was in my 20s, I was playing twice a week AND playing 5 a side on wednesday evenings AND holding down a job where I worked outside in all weathers. ( and I was paying to play NOT getting paid huge amounts to play) Our players should be fighting to play not moaning about feeling tired.

Tiredness isn't just from one game to the next, it's the cumulative effect on the season as a whole we need to worry about as well as the knocks and injuries as Ox says. Have we learned nothing from last year? We are now suffering from AVB's failure to get the team organised quickly enough for the start of the competition unfortunately. We were crap in Athens and Maribor and ineffective against Lazio at home. No excuses tonight please.

Ox - I agree you can pick up knocks or strains, but that risk applies to training or even warming up too! I don't think a game in the week at home is a real problem, I can understand if you have to play in Russia on a Thursday and then away to Everton on the Sunday to a point but playing at home tonight should be the best team possible. IMO Freidel (only cause AVB has already stated that apparently)...............................................................................Walker....Caulker....Vertonghen....Naughton................................Lennon...Carroll......Sandro..........Dempsey.................................Ade....Defoe.............................................................................

The point is assuming that the more 'important game' is Everton because we want to qualify for the CL next season. So when/if we do reach the ultimate objective and qualify for the CL we will HAVE to compete twice a week then anyway. Otherwise what is the point of any of it? AVB has it absolutely right - play as full strength as possible in this competition whilst being sensible. It means that 1. the players are mentally conditioned for 'getting up' for 2 games a week and 2. for the glory of being in Europe in the knock-out stages and ultimately trying to bring back the famous trophy. Try telling me the Everton game is the more important if i'm in Amsterdam next May! Its a win-win in my eyes.

Ox agree with you about knocks and strains but the tiredness comes more from the mental concentration required at this level. I played semi pro at a decent level and you can't switch off for a second, at PL level and in Europe that need to stay focused until the final whistle must be 10x what I endured and that can't be easy. Many players suffer with headaches and physical sickness after a game literally brought on by the stress of concentration. PL players are highly tuned athletes and if left uncared for will eventually break down, its like a highly tuned F1 car you would'nt not look after that and still expect it to win races, would you!

I don't want to see Verts and Sandro start today. Both have been looking quite tired recently having had international duties as well. Siggy surely is entitled to a start and Ade will play instead of Defoe.

Dembele is a tough question. We need him, but would it be wise to rest him because of his recent injury? Carroll and Thud should be enough today and maybe give Falque/Tonwnsend a go. I want us to go through, but not with the expense of PL. The Everton game is much more important in my opinion than this one.

My starting line up would be as follows and the reason for this is that I feel it offers a balance of experience and youth. Freidel, Walker, Caulker, Verts, Naughton, Thudd, Carroll, Sigurdson, Falque, Dempsey, Adebayor. We simply can not risk Sandro or Lennon for the Everton game given the absence of Parker & Bale. Dempsey off the left would be beneficial as an experiment but ideally replace with Townsend if and when the game in won. Adebayor needs minutes and the back 5 should have a relatively easy night! I for one, am looking forward to tonights game #COYS

Kes80, don't rise to Love totty, he is one of the few AVB snipers left on this site. You are right, i was at the Lazio game and we pummelled them, but for the officials we would have won comfortably. Also the other 2 games mentioned, whilst flat, were largely dominated by us but we conceded completely out of the blue both times. On any other nights we would have again won comfortably. Guess some will always find a reason to blame AVB, but blaming him for the Lazio game especially, actually our best performance of the season up that match is just moronic.

At least I'm consistent SRV. You're right, it was our best performance up to that point, which just shows how bad the previous ones were.

Lt, yep you are certainly consistent! You are a typical short-term knee-jerker! After 3 wins in a week AVB is 'much better', before he was 'not good enough'. When the truth is he is exactly the same AVB as he is now as he was in August. i.e a young, talented manager who wants to build the club up over the long-term whilst competing for all trophies along the way. I'm not looking through rose-tinted glasses - There are a thousand different factors that go into how a team does in the short-term, internal and external, and so sniping or congratulating AVB depending on the latest result is just idiotic. Bottom line is it takes AT LEAST a year for a manager to revamp a club (i would argue the 3 years it took Fergie) - and so i'm willing to give AVB and the players at least that time before i start making bold judgements. In the meantime lets give him the benefit of the doubt and get behind the lads.

Dress the best XI for this match as we can. We need to advance. We also need to dress the best XI possible for the weekend. Most of our available guys should be fit for tonight. Heck they haven't played for 4 days. They will be rested. After Sunday they will have a light couple of weeks leading in to the hectic Christmas schedule. That also coincides with apparent returns from some of our starters which will allow some much deserved rest for players like Vertonghen, Sandro, Walker, Lennon. Bale has now had a couple of breaks, so he will just slot back in. Same with BAE and Parker when they return. Kaboul will also be a huge return as he allows AVB to select 2 of Caulker, Vertonghen and Kaboul every game.

Haven't read the injury report but I'd suggest, Friedel, Walker, Gallas, Caulker, Vertonghen, Sandro, Dembele, Dempsey, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Adebayor. I'd have Defoe on the bench just in case along with Hudd to hopefully spell off Sandro if we are up. Carroll and Falque also hoping to be up by a couple and get them on at about the 60 minute mark. Winning is essential. Finishing top of the group, which requires help, is only possible with the win. Go for it and fans at the Lane, get behind the lads. It really is the 12th man that needs to start stepping up, IMO. COYS

Resting players: it is the constant playing across a few months that require resting. Vertonghen and Sandro come under that - because their form will decline if they keep going. Sandro WILL need rest soon. He played in olympics. When Parker is fit, this will be earlier. Europa: STRONGEST TEAM. If we go out, then we have wasted time playing non fringe in this cup. We haven't looked good in it generally. So we need to go through and try to win it. Some people hate the fact that we threw it in previous seasons. I don't mind as long as you do one or the other...and not in between...which would be going out now. The game: Cannot rest anyone bar possibly Vertonghen and Lloris.

I agree with the majority, play our strongest 11. I'd play 4-4-2 & play BOTH JD & Ade to get them match time together again. Bales obviously out so I'd go with either of Townsend or Falque. My Team for tonigh would be

Brad; Walker, Caulker, Verts, Naughton; Lennon, Sandro, Dembele, Townsend/Falque; Ade, JD.

This IS an important match & as long as we're winning comfortably by 60mins then we can sub the likes of Dembele & JD. Just look at the failures of City & Chelsea in the CL, now they are in the so called "lesser Cup" & they NEED to win it to try & save some dignity. How great would it be to knock either of them out the EL !

Under AVB although its taken some time we're starting to show our true colours again & the Players all look happy in the new system & want to work FOR AVB. They clearly RESPECT him & his system, the ability is within the Squad & with only a few additions in Jan we'll be set & fully capable of maintaining our form, finishing in the top4 & hopefully winning a Cup.

I can't wait for KO, only 2.5hrs to go..... COME ON YOU SPUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURS !
