Today/Tonight Tottenham face Spartak Moscow at White Hart Lane. Kickoff is 7:45 PM (London) and 2:45 PM (EST).
I know absolutely nothing about Spartak, aside from the fact they play in Russia.
Spurs however are going to be very short-staffed, as our two main signings in August (Vedran Corluka, Roman Pavlyuchenko) are cup-tied. Injuries limit the action for Ledley King, Jonathan Woodgate, and Gio Dos Santos. Not included are Darren Bent, Jermaine Jenas, and Alan Hutton (who needs to get fit soon).
This leaves our bleak squad looking something similar to this:
GK: Gomes, DEF: Gunter, Dawson, Zokora, Ekotto, Bale, MID: Huddlestone, Lennon, Modric, Bentley, O'Hara, Bostock? F: Campbell, Dervite.
Yikes. While I'm sure we can pick up a win from this game, it still scares me to see such a short-staffed lineup, even if we are at home.
