    It feels like absolute ages since the season ended....and now thank god its back!!

    Tottenham V Everton - Saturday 13th August.

    What are your views on score predictions? who is going to start? Will we have a new signing to parade around at kick off?

    I have got a good feeling for Saturday, I think we'll win 3-1. I think second half against Athletic B we picked up and showed what we are capable of. Modric has realised where his home is...

    My suggested team line-up:

    Gomes
    Assou-Ekotto
    Dawson
    King (providing he's back) or Kaboul
    Walker
    Modric
    Huddleston
    Bale
    Lennon
    Crouch
    Defoe


    Come on you Spurs - lets get off to a flyer!! 3-points in the bag....

    I was thinking about this and honestly didn't know whether we should go with Walker or Charlie. If the form of last season continues, Everton's biggest threat will come from Baines down the left so do we play a stronger defensive full-back (Charlie) to try and cancel the threat and stop the crosses coming in or a more attacking one (Walker) to try and keep Baines pegged back in his own half defending and afraid to get forward.

    I guess I'm asking whether attack really is the best form of defence?

    i also think that's how we're gonna play! But take out Kyle Walker and replace him with Corluka. Unfortunately Walker won't play i think, i think he is better than Charlie but Harry obviously thinks different.

    When will we know whether the London games are on or off, officially?

    My fantasy team is full of Spurs/Everton/Fulham/Bolton/QPR/Villa players, and I would get absolutely punished if I didn't reshuffle before then.

    Yeah, Brad for me, too - not that I think he's any better/worse overall, but it used to be when we signed a player it was actually so that they would play once in a while... hoping for a 4-4-2 with a strong bench and changes at half-time if it's 0-0.

    Séamus Coleman- the man who gave Bale so much trouble double-teaming him last time we played Everton- out injured for 6 months. That means mr. Bale will be either going against the quite pacy Phil Neville (;)) or getting doubled up on.
    So I suggest we start Walker and Lennon so they can't double up on Bale, or let them do it and see if baines can handle Lennon and Walker for the full 90. I'm excited!

    Gomes

    Walker Dawson Gallas BAE

    Lennon Hudd Modric Bale

    Crouch Defoe

    edit: if Gallas isnt able to play then Kaboul should get the nod.
