It's the final of the 2011 Vodacom Challenge, which may or may not be an illustrious thing we can win. Or it's just a preseason friendly. In any event, Tottenham Hotspur have a game to play today against Orlando Pirates. Harry Redknapp has - for the most part - granted my request by putting out a real team. With one small exception, that is. If we ever see this central defense pairing in the league, I'm going to cry. Here's the lineup.

Tottenham Hotspur lineup: Gomes; Walker, Bassong, Khumalo, Assou-Ekotto; Lennon, Modric, Huddlestone, Pienaar; Van der Vaart, Crouch

Substitutes: Cudicini, Hutton, Kaboul, Bale, Kranjcar, Palacios, Defoe, Pavlyuchenko

I guess I have no problem with resting Kaboul after the started the last game, but Bassong and Khumalo? Ruh roh Shaggy. Also, I hope that Dawson is out because Harry knows what he can do and wants to see the other three defenders, not because he's picked up a knock.

The game starts at 9:00 am ET, 2:00 pm BST, and 3:00 pm local time. Join us here for some lively conversation.
