We love Tom Carroll, we love Tom Carroll, we love Tom Carroll
Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today our beloved Tottenham Hotspur travel away to mother Russia to take on Rubin Kazan in the UEFA Europa League. As I'm sure you've gathered, this is your live match thread. Here's the Tottenham lineup...or team news...whatever you want to call it.
Tottenham Hotspur Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Cudicini; Fredericks, Bassong, Gallas, Townsend; Falque, Carroll, Livermore, Pienaar; Defoe, Pavlyuchenko
I like that we're giving Benny and Walker a rest, though Fredricks and Townsend is about the most scary fullback pairing ever. I'm surprised Sandro isn't starting and I'm wondering if Harry has a wacky lineup in store for the weekend. It's great to see Pienaar and Gallas back in the lineup, and I'm always a fan of Carroll, Iago Falque, and Livermore getting more PT.
Rubin Kazan vs. Tottenham Hotspur kicks off at 1:00 pm ET, 5:00 pm GMT. It can be seen on ITV4 in the UK, DirecTV Soccer in the USA, Setanta Sports in Ireland, and ESPN in Australia. Alternative means discussion will not be censored.
