Tottenham Hotspur Team News: We No Can Haz Forwards

This man has a tough choice to make. He will make the wrong one.

Bad news, Spursland. Both Rafael van der Vaart and Jermain Defoe are doubtful for Saturday's match against West Bromwich Albion. Roy Hodgson's boys aren't exactly in brilliant form and Peter Odemwingie isn't 100 percent fit, but this is still a serious concern. If we're without Rafa and Defoe, it's a serious concern against anyone who isn't a complete joke.

Of course, there are a few of very logical courses of action here. The most logical is to push Luka Modric up the pitch and bring in Sandro, playing a 4-3-3/4-5-1 that will be excellent at winning the ball in midfield and keeping the ball. Another logical option is to give Giovani dos Santos a run-out in his natural position, between the midfield and Adebayor. Before you call me a biased hack, notice that this was not the first option. Bringing Harry Kane is not ideal, but not insane either.

Wait...what's that, you say? Roman Pavlyuchenko still plays for Spurs? Well CRAP.

Ade and Pav in a 4-4-2. Excuse me while I SOB INTO MY PINT GLASS OF SINGLE MALT SCOTCH.
