Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur host Shamrock Rovers in the UEFA Europa League. All of the kiddies that you want to see are in the lineup...except Harry Kane! WTF, Harry. In any event, I'm happy to see more of Tom Carroll, run-outs for Giovani dos Santos and Jake Livermore, and the return of both Aaron Lennon and Danny Rose from injury. Here are the lineups.
Tottenham Hotspur lineup (4-4-2): Cudicini; Walker, Bassong, Corluka, Rose; Lennon, Carroll, Livermore, Giovani; Defoe, Pavlyuchenko
Subs: Gomes, Kaboul, Bale, Falque, Modric, Townsend, Kane
Why Modric is even in the 18 and why Pavlyuchenko makes the starting lineup over Kane, I have absolutely no clue. The game is on DirecTV Soccer in the US and I don't know of any all-provider broadcasts in the States or of any broadcasts in the UK. So, feel free to discuss your alternative means of watching the game. Kickoff is at 3:00 pm ET, 8:00 pm BST, and COYS!
