Jarvis, Maiga and O'Brien dropped!

Well it's not before time! At last Allardyce has woken up to the fact that Maiga is shit and grasped that Vaz Te, the man he wanted to offload, is a far better option up front. As for Jarvis, he has been on borrowed time all season so, with Downing fit and Cole on his way back, it is no surprise to see him parked on the bench. No assists all season says it all, sadly, and at £11m, he is looking a huge waste of money.

O'Brien, however, can count himself unlucky. True he was stupid to give away that penalty against Hull, but I think he has been one of our better players so far this season. Tomkins preferred ahead of Collins again, which is another interesting choice.

Can we get anything from the game? If we do, it will surely be on the basis of suffocating Tottenham's vastly superior players. But fingers crossed that Vaz Te, Downing and Morrison turn it on, proving you don't have to pay £25m on foreign imports! Mind you, it's worrying that AVB has called our bluff and selected Defoe, something we have been trying to provoke through Cole singing his former team mate's praises.

I agree, though Jarvis did get an assist for Joe Cole's goal against Cardiff in the opening day. O'Brien is unlucky but I think that he does make some silly mistakes...perhaps the fact he plays on either wing makes him an effective wingback sub? I think Demel positions himself a bit more intelligently, knowing that he doesn't have all that pace. Here's hoping! COYI

I am not defending Jarvis's performances, but he also had an assist for Morrison's goal v Everton, so in fact he has assisted 50% of our league goals this season. Still don't let the facts stand in the way of a good rant!

Doesn't Jarvis need a target, capable of scoring?
