According to this anonymous newspaper (not The Independent, as we first thought – apologies are due there) and their crack team of insider experts, Sheffield United are gearing up to field an extremely strong side against Tottenham in the Capital One Cup tonight.

As for Spurs, as well as a classic “double West Brom” defensive set up, they’re also opting for Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic up-front in a bid to stir things up a bit…


Good to see Anton and Rio reunited after all these years, though you do feel Spurs may be able to exploit Carlton and Joe playing out of position down the left.

    That’s Ashley Cole at LB, duhhh.

    I don’t think they need such a strong defence if Tottenham’s attacking threat are West Brom’s defensive-midfielder and Stoke’s goalkeeper. Although if Begovic gets into a one-on-one with Begovic, I’d like to see the outcome.

    Especially when they have Phil and Jermaine Jones on the wings

    I don’t whether it’s an amusing mistake or a stunning piece of humour, but you’ve written that Begovic is up front for Sheffield United when, in fact, he is up front for Spurs.

    Nice to see that they’ve got Velimir Ivanovic playing in his usual mid-field position. I’m sure he’s happy as a little girl pulling the boots on for the Blades. Must beat the heck out of suiting up for Vidima-Rakovski in the 3rd division of Bulgarian football every fackin’ week. Bloody hell YES!!!
