Hello everyone and welcome once again to another ProTipster Football Podcast: Combined XI. This week our featured match is Spurs Vs Arsenal. That’s right, the North London derby where Tottenham Hotspur will be taking on Arsenal at Wembley, which is only twelve miles from Arsenal home ground the Emirates Stadium, but a 45 minute drive away. Praise the heavens you don’t like in London eh?
Spurs Vs Arsenal
Joining ProTipster Paddy are ProTipsters Martin and Dan and the boys are ready for another rip-roaring row over who gets into their matchday squads.
Before we get started though, here’s the rules again. We pick a starting eleven players from both squads, we cannot pick injured or suspended players and our formation this week is 4-2-3-1.
First up is our goalkeeper, Petr Cech…naw, only messing. Why would you pick Petr Cech when you can have France’s number one cat between the sticks Hugo Lloris. Granted Cech is a good goalkeeper but he’s not the ‘keeper he was and it looks like the pressure of getting his 200th clean sheet seems to be getting to him.
We get defensive then and we mull over our back 4. We’ve all pretty much agreed on who fills most of the positions but there’s a choice to be made at right back and both of the lads, but only one man can get the place. It gets so heated that the lads even turn to Fantasy Football points to make their choice. And then totally disregard it anyway.
Next up for our Spurs Vs Arsenal Combined XI podcast we look at our defensive midfield, one of the boys even claims that his pick could be used by England manager at this year’s World Cup 2018 in Russia. I’m still not sure if he was trolling me or genuine. In fairness though it’s a tough roll to fill. Usually Arsene Wenger gets Aaron Ramsey to play there, out of position. Jack Wilshere when he’s not on the treatment table usually gets a spot there too, but Eric (not Kieron) Dier, Dyer incidentally, has been playing some great football this season. We’ll just forget about his assist for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah last weekend. Big Mousa Dembele gets a shout too. It’s a tough call. But the ProTipster Boys are up to the task and make a wise decision.
On to the business end of the pitch then and sure look, let’s be honest, it’s pretty easy from here on in isn’t it? Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Erik Lamela, Henryk Mkhitaryan, Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen. No wait, there’s one too many there isn’t there? No, there’s two too many. Ah lads, you’re just going to have to listen to find out who made the team.
Finally then for our Spurs Vs Arsenal Football Podcast we take a look forward towards the weekend and I ask the boys for this match predictions.
