Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on Newcastle United in the Premier League at St. James' Park, and lineups have dropped. They are weird. I have no idea what Tim Sherwood is thinking. I hope it works.
Team v NUFC - Lloris; Walker, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Naughton; Dembele, Bentaleb, Capoue, Paulinho, Lennon; Adebayor. #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 12, 2014
So Timmy red Brett Rainbow's post about how Mousa Dembele is not an attacking midfielder...and decided to move him to the left wing? Well okay, whatever. I assume that's what's going on here, at least. Kyle Naughton playing left back is weird too, as is Younes Kaboul getting a start. Hopefully Younes can actually go 90.
What's comforting is that Newcastle's lineup is crap. Kickoff is at 7:45 p.m. local time, 2:45 p.m. ET.
