Hey everyone, I figured I'd give a little love to our fellow Spurs blogs who have put up good content ahead of the UEFA Europa League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Heart of Midlothian. Being introverted is no good for anyone, so get outside of your comfort zone and read some quality stuff from other Spurs sites. We're good, but we're not the only gig in town.
The folks over at What A Fantastic Run had an interview with a Hearts fan who seems like quite a nice fellow. It's just further proof that the 20% of jerks ruin things for the 80% of fans that are fantastic people. He calls David Templeton and Rudi Skacel the players to watch and thinks Hearts will get a decent result tonight, with Spurs taking the tie at White Heart Lane without much trouble.
If you don't read THFC 1882, it's a fine site and I highly recommend bookmarking it. Gareth Johnson has some interesting thoughts on the formation and the folks up top. Also, he thinks we'll start Kyle Walker tonight and Vedran Corluka on the weekend, which I agree with.
With our injuries so numerous, AANP speculates that we'll see Rafael van der Vaart in the center of a 4-4-2. I wrote about this a little bit earlier, and while I disagree, I can definitely see it happening. He also thinks it makes sense to field a full-strength squad tonight, which we could probably have endless debates about.
The game kicks off at 2:45 pm ET, 7:45 pm BST and we'll have a game thread with lineups up for you about 45 minutes before kickoff. COYS!
