      • SB, you always sound so negative - why think about 5th now, it's 4 places down! We all know it won't last, let's enjoy it while we've got it.

        Just watched the highlights, Bentley didn't even smile when he scored, miserable fucker, he just looked like playing in these sorts of games were beneath him. Fair enough it was the 4th goal, and when he joined us he thought he was on the verge of being the best player since time began, but he's got to take these chances when offered (it's a step up from reserves, which is where he was at the end of last season), and he just looks embarassed to have to go through this. If he can really shine in these matches - and stop shooting every time he gets the ball past the half way line - there's no reason you couldn't have him, Modric and Lennon as a three-pronged, interchanging attacking midfield, with Palacios guarding the back. But he's got to earn it, he's not going to get it on a plate.

    • Morning Spursbabe, looking good as always!!

      Not sure I would go for wholesale changes like that!! I think go for more regulars to start and then have a change early in the second half once the job is done. Start Bentley, Pav and Crouch (interesting to see how they work together), start O'Hara or Rose and either KPB or Dos Santos. Personally I would stick with Assou-Ekotto, Bassong and Corluka and start Naughton.
      Cudicini will have to start in Gomes' absence.
