Official Tottenham starting XI v Man City – Kane does not start
By Bruce Grove -

It is finally here, the opening game of the season and best of all, the fans are back as well.

The big question everyone wanted an answer to before kick-off was whether Harry Kane would start, well, now we know, he is not.

With or without Kane this was always going to be one of the toughest fixtures of the season for Spurs and to some extent, it is good that we are getting it out of the way early on.

No one knows exactly how each team will start their respective seasons and so if you were ever going to catch City at the right time, it is the opening game of the season in front of your own fans.

It also helps that City are also without some key players including Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden, though they are hardly short of quality replacements.

Anyway, this is the Tottenham lineup to face City this afternoon, what do you think of the starting X1.

Maybe we sell them Charlie Kane ‘by mistake’ – you better check the small print City…

If Levy could pull that off, he’d make a convert out of me 🙂

We noised it up in there. 12th man was firm like the team. I love our new stadium

Nothing particularly against Citeh. I’d love to see that gobsh*te Noel Gallagher’s face tonight… 😂

The guy had a season ticket at Arsenal when he’s a Citeh fan!? Yes, weird.

I bet he’s in a great mood tonight after this weekend “feelin’ supersonic” mate! 😂

I remember when Liam was at a Spurs-City game over decade ago. He kept coming out the exec box onto the balcony giving it large. All the spurs fans sang ” you’re just a shit Chas’n’Dave”. It was great. Spurs won 2-1, we gave him so much stick.

Some people say he was at the game others say he wasn’t. He’s off now by the looks of it. Good luck to the City transfer team with Levy.

BBC made me laugh today, “after this game you can see how desperate they are for a striker”. What complete garbage…my heart bleeds for them it really does. 🤔

The media helps these transfers happen sometimes, I reckon.

It’s clearly far too early to make proper judgements but when I see the ‘usual suspects’ playing with assurednesss against such quality opposition it makes me question the managerial nous of The Specious One even more so.

As you said it’s the first game, let’s see what happens after ten. Last season started in a blaze of glory

Yup, and with a counterattacking win against the 20 points ahead eventual league winners. We are Spurs however so lets enjoy each positive when we get ’em and while we can.

My thoughts exactly. That Sanchez tackle on De Bruyne a good example.
