Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United

Tottenham Hotspur vs Newcastle United

Our next game is home to Newcastle United which, until the January window closed, we may have considered a very good prospect for 3 points. But the bar codes have been busy in the transfer window spending £28,569.200.00 and receiving back from transfer revenue £13,024.000.00

There is no doubt that Moussa Sissoko is a great find and at just 22 he looks like a prospect for the future. But whilst his fingerprints were all over the Chelsea result the Bar codes have acquired some other strong players like Centre Back Mapou Yanga Mbiwa, only 23 years of age from Montpellier, Centre Forward, Yoan Gouffran from Bordeaux, Right Back Mathieu Debuchy and left back Massadio Haidara from AS Nancy.

Newcastle come to the Lane on the back of two straight wins 2-1 away to Villa and last weekend a stunning 3-2 victory over Chelsea. The Newcastle team will probably be the same as the team that beat Chelski, with Debucy, Colloccini, Santon and Perch across the back, Cabaye, Goufran, Gutierrez across the middle with Sissoko sitting in just behind Cisse. AVB will have to think carefully how he sets his team out for this one as both Cisse and Sissoko are powerful forwards. Hugo Lloris will have to be at his aerial best as Newcastle will be good in the air especially at set pieces and if we are going to play a high line we will have to make sure we can get back to defend if play breaks down whilst we are in possession. That could mean AVB dropping Dawson, who isn`t the quickest of our CB`s, and maybe consider pairing Caulker and Vertonghen instead.

If ever there was a game to have Kaboul available it would be this one but unfortunately Kaboul`s long awaited return is not until the 25th February. Another absentee that we will surely miss is Sandro helping us break up play higher up the pitch, that means Parker will have a job to do on Saturday. We are a bit light in terms of DM now Sandro is out so Dembele will need to go back to help Parker and possibly build attacks from deep.

The most interesting aspect of this game will be to see if AVB puts Dempsey in behind Adebyour or takes a gamble and puts Lewis Holtby in the VDV role. That would allow Dembele to play deeper and might bring that link between the front man and midfield that we have been missing in recent games. Against West Brom Defoe looked isolated for much of the game he played and it was only when Bale went back to the left, after the Defoe injury that Dempsey started to see some service.

This is going to be a difficult match. Chelsea were said to have not been on their game, whilst Newcastle went into the match with a Cup mentality. Newcastle will be on a high and their new pairing of Cisse and Sissoko look like a potent weapon that will surely start to see the Bar Codes climb up the table. Newcastle, like Spurs, have Europa League duties this month, whether that reflects on the two teams that are selected remains unclear but our 25 man squad is looking a bit thin in some areas because some players, like Walker and BAE have not really found their form yet.

There will be some key battles, especially in defence, how will Debuchy and Santon deal with Lennon and Bale. How will our CB`s deal with Sissoko and Cisse? The battle for midfield will be another key area. Will Dembele see enough of the ball and will Holtby get a start over Dempsey?

Of course no one really feels that Newcastle should be where they are in the Premier League especially as they finished 5th last season. The irony is that Newcastle could yet have a big bearing on us finishing fourth or higher this season, especially if the points difference is 3 points or less for 4th spot, as Les Toons D`Army`s last match of the season is at St James`s Park against.....Le Scum!

So how would you set Spurs up against a rejuvenated Newcastle and do we have the players to keep Sissoko and Cisse quiet?

Simple Bale up front with an all out attack supporting him. I suppose we will have to play Ade just to give him a chance Benny can surge up the left to supply the crosses and Mr. Lennon can go out on the right. As for the rest of the team it virtually picks itself.

i think due to the signings they made having an instant impact, as spurs fans, we could easily be forgiven for sensing an implosion of some kind. fact is they beat the villa just lke everyone seems to be this season and a chelsea side that doesn't know whether they are coming or going and probably under estimated them. i fully expect AVB to out smart the muppet on the other side of the duggout and send the team out with a clear game plan and dominate the game as we do most gams these days and win reasonably comfortably. if holty hits it off with ade we could easily see this one out 3 or 4 to nil or 1 at best for them.

Holtby should absolutely start. His work rate is infectious. If he can get Adebayor working and scoring then we'll have the Dempsey/Defoe option that can be brought on late in games. Defoe running at tired defences and Dempsey with his timely goals could prove huge. It all depends on Adebayor getting his form back, and fast. We need a solid defence and a packed midfield at the back end. Don't concede and we will win more often than not. We need the FB's to create the width and the overlap. Huge game. 3 points sets the tone as everyone around us in the table will feel pressure to perform. We are getting to the business end of things and the more wins we get, the better. 8 more wins and CL is ours. COYS

His country were eliminaed Sunday. He should have had a day off, then a day of travel, another day off and then two days of practice in preparation for the Saturday start. Basically this will be the second leg against Newcastle that he has not been in the squad for his own agenda. If true, he cannot even be allowed on the bench or in the stadium tomorrow. He should be suspended until the club can talk to him on Sunday. COYS

"Oh Holtby in a supporting VDV or Modders role. Dembele and Parker," wrote chrishove123.

Interesting observation about Holtby, because one wouldn't have thought about playing VDV in the Modders role, nor the Mo Fo in the VDV role. But one doesn't laugh at the suggestion of putting Holtby into either role.

Total Knobhead, I guess the question is where is he best in the lineup given the opposition. Against Newcastle, I'd want him just behind Bale with Sigurdsson and Lennon out wide. If we need to up the offence, Sigurdsson off, Dempsey on and Bale out left. Parker and Dembele have to start in front of the back four to make it nigh impossible to play through. Modric could have played the VDV role, but we had VDV. VDV could not have played the Modric role which is why he was allowed to go back to Germany. Holtby looks a very versatile player. COYS

Leave the strikers on the bench tomorrow. Start Holtby in a 4-6-0. Hold the ball in the middle of the park and spring Lennon or Bale centrally at their CBs. Teach Lennon to shoot. Possible loss tomorrow but in AVB I trust. COYS

big cockeral loving your sentiment, LOL, but he never played that well in the first place, lousy first touch because of his octagonal boots which are specially made to fit his octagonal feet. HA HA, therefore terrible at shooting. He could have got 20+ if his first touch was good, which, in turn, would have allowed him to shoot accurately.

chrishove123, I don't doubt that there is a degree of truth to that, but the fact was that he was not going to have our offence built around him any longer and it was going to impact on his playing time. His move to Spain was for the family too. Perhaps the move to Germany was to salvage the marriage. The point I made earlier was that VDV could not have played the Modric role where Modric could have performed the VDV role. Regardless of all else, he should have worked on his corners and free kicks more and he most definitely should not have hit his wife. COYS

Oh Veh - Your prediction. "The Newcastle team will probably be the same as the team that beat Chelski, with Debucy, Colloccini, Santon and Perch across the back, Cabaye, Goufran, Gutierrez across the middle with Sissoko sitting in just behind Cisse." I disagree. I think Newcastle will play with 11 men :-)

I agree with Big C, if it is true that Adebayor did not arrive for training, it only goes to prove what many of us suspected, he is taking "the aunt ciss". He needs a hearty kick up the arse, and read the riot act, nobody is bigger than the club, if he isn't prepared to pull his weight he should be told to "Foxtrot Oscar". This season, with one thing and another, he is becoming a waste of space, and has contributed little.

Totally agree Frank, and fined 2 weeks wages. I just don't get the mindset of the guy. Most of us would see Defoe's injury as our chance to win the shirt and keep it for the rest of the season. Anyway, the recent stats would tell us we've got a couple of players contributing 1 in 2 at the moment. Their names are Dempsey and Bale so my feeling is they should play with Holtby and Lennon making up the attacking 4. Who cares if we haven't got a player that says "Striker" on his CV. I'd rather have the ones scoring all of our goals in the side.

Getting back to the game v Newcastle, I fear this will be a very very difficult game. They have done excellent business in the transfer window, with 5 more than decent players coming in for a net spend of some £15M, laying to rest the myth that you have to pay £20M for the "Red Top back page players" to do any good in the market, maybe there is a lesson in their for some chairmen, no names no pack drill. In particular their signing of Sissoko was a steal, he wasn't a find, he was there for all who bothered to look to see, and Newcastle went in and nicked him, business that will prove excellent in the future. I think we will need to play well to get anything from this game, particularly given our absentees, some unavoidable, some not.
Frank
08/02/2013 19:34:00

I still cannot see how a bid of £2.5M for Sissoko to see off Newcastle, and taking the £10M offer from Reading for Sigurdson was not seen as a good option for us. It would have ticked all the boxes, firstly a £3M profit on Sigurdson's original fee, getting a better player, and £7.5M into Lewis's back pocket, job done, everybody happy, and our squad stronger.
Frank
08/02/2013 19:42:00

Frank, I can only presume that Sigurdsson is a player AVB wants - he blocked any move and we have not yet played a style of football that can really be considered "AVB-ish". 4-4-2 was borne of Defoe's inability to do the job of the up top lone striker and Adebayor's lack of presence (either meaning) this year. As for Sissokho, I'd have done that deal in a second, though I'd have preferred Belhanda. Given how we were still in for Willian and Leandro, I suspect (just a guess) that Moutinho is still going to be the man. They are up against Malaga and must surely believe they can advance to the round of 8, so there was never going to be any movement from the player at this time. Myself, I'd have gone the 2.5M route (sell Hudd to cover costs) and, if Moutinho was available in the summer, still gone in for him and sold whomever didn't fit thereafter. I would not have sold Sigurdsson though. I really liked what I saw in pre-season and believe, once he hits his stride, he will be a very valuable member of the squad. COYS

Sissoko has had 1 very good game v Chelsea but if u ask his former club what they think about his ability you will be surprised by the answer. He did diddly squat for them hence why they sold him. Check the opts stats they don't lie. Granted he was mesmerising b Chelsea but he still has everything to prove. I don't expect him to do anything tomorrow and I certainly don't think we need to pay any special attention to him. Average player.

Tornado, 2 years ago he was being considered a 20M player and a future star. Me certainly is better than M'Vila, IMO, although I agree, 2 goals is not the norm with him. Belhanda is better, but 2.5M is a steal as would 3.5M for Diambe. Doesn't mean they are the bees knees but they are not average. We need to pay attention to whoever is on the pitch if we are to win.

TBH, I don’t understand why peeps are constantly feeling nervous when we face the likes of barcodes, or for that matter, anyone else. Get those positive vibes going and get that positivity flowing throughout the fan base. And those that are lucky enough to attend the match, relay that to the team. For me, if we are considered to be serious top-4 team, then the likes of Newcastle and their fans who should be nervous facing us, especially when WE are playing home. They had Ba last year and we took them to cleaners. Also, let’s not get carried away by their new signings. They all played at home and put on a good show for the fans. Let’s see how they handle the WHL atmosphere. OK, we have a niggling concern about our lack of genuine strikers, but they’d be worry about our other talent and the unity in the team. Their win against Chelsea was as much about their efficient goal scoring as it was of poor Chelsea defending. I personally think AVB and the lads will be well up for this, wanting to consolidate our position in the league. A lively start would go a long away in removing any apprehension. Need to get the ‘win every game’ mentality bedded in. That’s where we have to learn to emulate the like of Man Utd. COYS!

Peterballb, the other day you claimed Sissoko was more defensive than M'Vila, which suggest you havent seen much of either player in the last 2 years to have an opinion of their abilities. 2 different players with Sissoko being the more attacking of the 2 and M'Vila winning more caps for France despite being a ****.

Critical Spur, our recent form brings about the nervous feelings, we won only 1 from our last 4, drawing 3, and this was largely down to a guy getting sent off. We are struggling for goals. What we need to ease the nerves is a convincing win, a re-run of last year's 5-0 would do fine

Lets hope the barcodes play their new full backs as they won't have seen anything like Bale or Lenny before. They do not travel well usually so expecting 3 points, keep the ball as usual and stop Cabaye and we can win this well. Ade to start whatever as he will remember this from last year and Coloccini will be having nightmares. Holtby in behind as Dempsey will be jet lagged. He should be on the bench. Retain Daws and Vert. Assess Benny bu he should be OK as no lag issues there. The rest as our last win.

Frank, Re nervousness because we are struggling for goals.... My take on that would be that we have had TWO hyped up strikers this season. One who finished his purple patch in 2012 and the second never really got started!. For that reason everyone else is attempting a shot at the goal from all over the place. IMO, Defoe and possibly Ade out, it may well be a blessing in disguise. Allows AVB to deploy Bale/Dembele/Holtby/Dempsey/Siggy (any one or more of those) in a different role and we may just discover a new hero! Also, Obika/Kane may just come of age. We have been too reliant on misfiring strikers for too long. Apart from Bale, I hope AVB discovers a gem from within the squad and we can stop having those sleepless nights! I am expecting a pleasant surprise tomorrow. With Mr Selfish and Mr Lazy out of the way, I expect others to excel. COYS!!

A couple of days ago I let vent at Adebayor, and I apologise for going over the top. One poster said I "hated" him. That is not true but like many on here I get extremely agitated by his attitude. Yesterday he failed to make training, which will surprise the apologists more than it did me. Today is another day, its match day, and AVB will pick the team he feels will get us 3 valuable points. If Ade starts or comes of the bench he will have my full support. I believe he has the skill and charisma to solidate our claim to 4th place, getting CL football, retaining Bale, and being our hero. This is a perfect opportunity to show the doubters like me what he can do. Will he get the chance? Well we dont know all the goings on with his delayed trip, nor what condition he is in. Either way I get the feeling we are already at a X roads in his Spurs career. COYS.

Adebayor will be struggling with jet lag from the huge time difference between South Africa and England. They are about 25 years behind us :-)

If Adebayor, failed to do anything at the training ground yesterday, for assessment. Then i would only consider him for the subs bench for Newcastle. Depending on his Reasons, if he was late. I'd make my judgement from there. But....if they are poor, then i would continue with him as best as possible this season.....But 100% sell him in the summer....and buy 2, maybe 3 strikers. In the mean time.......I'd Put Siggurdsen up top, main striker, with Holtby behind...and keep Bale primarily on the left, for Newcastle. Dempsey would also go on the bench alongside Addy, for this game. We wait to hear the full story on Addy'...and "COME ON YOU SPURS".....for Newcastle. No predictions on this one, from me...but no doubt, it will be another rollercoaster....lol

I genuinely think if Ade is going to play. He has to start. Coming off of the bench to try an change a game won't work for him. It's not his style or way. If AVB feels he is okay to play then gamble an start with alongside Holtby an hope it clicks from the off. If Ade has his usual game of this season I feel it will remain that way for the whole season. If he starts alongside Dempsey I feel there is greater chance of this happening

whatever the reasons for adebayor's behaviour, and perhaps it has something to do with the alleged falling out with AVB before the african cup, it certainly seems absolutely inexcusable. On the other hand we do need him right now, so perhaps AVB will take a softer approach and try and bring out the best in the striker. if he does, he will be easier to sell in the summer if his attitude is still problematic, in the mean time further ostracising him will only likely make things worse.

Adebayor is on the bench. I believe this is a beginning of the end for him. AVB is not happy with his attitude and commitment to the club. But then who is?
