Tottenham v Liverpool

It's the match that pits Rafael Benitez against Juande Ramos.

Two successful Spaniards going head-to-head for the first time in English football.

With both sides already assured of European football next season there is nothing more than pride at stake - and yet both managers will be determined to get one over on their compatriot and sign off the Premier League campaign with a victory.

It is the first time Carling Cup winning coach Ramos will have faced Liverpool since taking charge of the White Hart Lane outfit, and he will be hoping his Spurs side can improve upon the 2-2 draw his predecessor Martin Jol secured at Anfield back on October 7, 2007 - when a last-gasp header from Fernando Torres denied them all three points.​

I can see Spurs pipping up on their home turf. We have nothing to play for, we can't move up nor down. So we will field a well below strength starting eleven. I'll go for a 1:0 Spurs win thanks to a Keane header

I dont think we'll field a below strength starting eleven.

Maybe Alonso can go out with a bang, Spurs away was when he put on one of the best passing displays you will ever see.

Well even if we do go in with a sort of starting eleven.. we have nothing to play for but pride.. so I can see us try to make a break or two.. but with minimal intensity..

As for the team.. I expect Xabi and Crouch to start.. maybe Voronin too.. I think Insua will get another start which is great.. I want Rafa to judge him before he goes and signs another left back.. my expected team:

Reina

Finnan--Carra--Skrtel--Insua

------Xabi Alonso--Lucas

Pennant--Gerrard--Yossi

---------Crouch

With the bench having: Itandje, Hyypia, Plessis, Voronin, Torres

Oh and I don't see why "Torres needs to at least score a goal"! :) why? he has nothing to prove, can't pip Ronaldo to the goal scoring record.. and it won't matter much either way..

If he scores one more goal, he would be the best EPL newcomer ever, beating RVN with his 22 goals.

Go OUT with a big bang?

:S I hope not out. I just want him to have a good game against Spurs so that Liverpool will not sell him.

i don't think Liverpool want to sell him, i think is more down to family problems, I mean wasn't Luis garcia wife Alonsos wife best friend?


Luis G left with his wife and problem has started since.

when did alonso get married? wiki says they are just common-law couple haha

i do see alonso leaving soon though. within the next 2 seasons. he was used very sparingly this season and only showed glimpses of his debut year. unfortunate, cause i do like alonso very much

Emiliano Insua will get another taste of first-team football in the final game of the season at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
The promising left-back is in the line up along with the recalled Alvaro Arbeloa and Andriy Voronin.

The Reds XI in full is: Reina, Insua, Arbeloa, Carragher, Skrtel, Babel, Gerrard, Mascherano, Kuyt, Torres, Voronin. Subs: Itandje, Hyypia, Finnan, Lucas, Benayoun.
why why why why the fuck is Voronin starting ahead of Crouch and Nemeth? What a joke.
