a stone cold certain DRAW. After all we are playing a danger team - a relegation candidate!!!!

they will score early and if we are lucky we will equalise near the end and earn an un-deserved draw.

Message from the chairman:

Dear Supporter

I write this today ahead of knowing whether or not we have qualified for European football for next season and ahead of a final day of fixtures that will settle key positions for so many teams - such has been the intense competitiveness of this season's Premier League.

Harry and his coaching staff have worked with the squad to deliver performances during the season that fans will remember for years to come.

This season we experienced our first venture in the Champions League and it was one which saw us reach the Quarter Final stage. We achieved this playing some of the most entertaining and exciting football of the competition - truly memorable performances.

We shall miss and all be disappointed at not qualifying for the Champions League for a subsequent year, but I know that the players will be fully focussed next season on returning us to this elite competition.

Our performances in the Premier League have provided great entertainment for supporters too. This season we scored our 1000th goal in the Premier League - a goal which was also Jermain Defoe's 100th goal for the Club - and we recorded wins away at Arsenal and Liverpool, our first wins there since 1993.

We have spent years and hundreds of millions of pounds investing in our First Team squad and in creating a settled team. Having quality players means they automatically attract attention from other clubs - but I can assure you that we have no reason to sell, and every intention of retaining, our key players. We shall simply not entertain any approaches for these players.

We do, however, currently have one of the largest squads in the Premier League and, given the 25 man squad rule, it is no longer practical to retain players who are unlikely to qualify within that limit. We shall, therefore, look to reduce the number of these players during the coming summer transfer window in order to operate both effectively and efficiently.

Additionally, this season we saw the growth and development of several younger players who have undoubtedly benefitted from the combined system of loaning to ensure match time whilst retaining training sessions back at Spurs Lodge. Several of these players will be valuable additions to our First Team next season.

We were delighted to see Tottenham Hotspur Ladies top the South East Combination League this season, winning a well-earned promotion to the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division. We shall have the opportunity to applaud them at half-time today as they parade the trophy and we wish them well for next season.

Off the pitch our players have, as always, given their time generously to support the community projects delivered by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, which continues to go from strength to strength. Its added focus is on increasing the employability of individuals of all ages and abilities - a vital role in current times.

We continue to plan for the future growth of the Club. On Friday we took the First Team players and coaching staff to visit the new Training Centre at Enfield. Construction of the main building is well underway and they were able to see the layout and scale of this vast new facility. It is well on course to open in the summer of 2012.

It has taken us six years and three planning applications to achieve and is clear evidence of the determination and ambition of the Club.

We are equally determined and ambitious for a new increased capacity stadium and we shall apply the same energy and vigour in achieving this. We shall look to keep you all updated.

When the players circle the pitch at the end of the day they will be thanking you for your tremendous support and for the way in which you filled stadia home and away cheering and spurring them on. It has been this combination of team and supporters that has made this season so memorable for us all. Thank you.

I wish you and your families an enjoyable and relaxing summer and look forward to welcoming you back next season.

Yours, Daniel.

im excited to see how sandro and hudd do together in midfield!

what is up with VDV missing? not fit? this could be a great opportunity to see how we do without him in the lineup- is he tactically disruptive although talented? time to find out...

should be interesting to see how the old pompey front line does for us...

surely you must agree that rose has more than earned his start right? benny has no need to fear either i think he has had a class season.

Yep. Another home game for Rose to get under his belt - the more the better really. He could've done with another month of games, 10 odd matches at LB would've been a great little run for him.

fyi...i think with this lineup we will win 3-0...

for some reason i feel like crouch and defoe will run riot, the team will click without VdV's positional jack of all positions mentality up top and modders will score at the keepers near post after cutting in at the top of the box on the right.

How on earth can Assou-Ekotto be fit again already? He did his hamstring against West Brom on April 23rd. 4 weeks recovery seems very fast.

I expect a good performance today as well, but not because of VDV's omission, but more to do with the fact we got a good win at Anfield, confidence will be up again, and we will want to go out with a bang.

euan, you may be right, but don't you ever wonder if vdv isn't as much a liability as an asset? i know he is good, but maybe we don't know how to play anything else besides 4-4-2?

Nup, I don't. We just need the right striker to play with him, or/and a change to a 4-2-3-1. 4-4-2 is becoming redundant, we cant play it with Bale and Lennon on the wings, it leaves us totally outnumbered in the middle.

VDV is one of our only world class players, with the most experience, a big game mentality, fiery attitude and is a match winner. He should never be viewed as a liability in my eyes...

Bit harsh. Modric has been great on the left in the past, and he'll be able to tuck in and allow Rose to go outside on the overlap. Hudd doesn't need to play defensive, he's just as good playing a bit further advanced, as he is sitting deep.
