Tottenham Hotspur Team News: Everything Is A Freaking Mystery Again

Okay, I know Tottenham Hotspur is not required to tell us about every little knock and confirm who is and is not playing every week. This is not the NFL. If you aren't required to release all of this information, you keep a small strategic advantage by not doing so. Fine.

Still, this paragraph on the official team website is absurd.

The manager said he would have to wait on the fitness of 'four or five' players but kept his cards close to his chest as we return to Premier League action at Loftus Road.

Four or five?!? We could just randomly not see Luka Modric, or Gareth Bale, or Emmanuel Adebayor on the pitch against QPR and have literally no idea that they were ever carrying a knock. I know Harry Redknapp's job is to get results and not to give every little piece of information to the fans that they want, but jeez, do you really have to get us all worried?

What Harry did say is that Younes Kaboul is probably not going to play and that Niko Kranjcar is out for the season. Otherwise, nothing. Thanks Harry.
