Spurs need a rethink

by admin

There appears to be a lingering feeling of calm before a transfer window storm at White Hart Lane at present.

Whilst internet rumour, paper talk and the occasional inside information from so-called ‘sources’ on certain sports news channels appears to be the source of this tension amongst supporters, it would be naïve to think that a number of players at The Lane are not catching the attention of Europe’s big boys.

Barcelona reportedly lead the chase for Gareth Bale. Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are all said to be putting together packages to prise Croatian midfielder Luka Modric away from Spurs.

Throw in interest in the services of a number of other key players at the club, Rafael van der Vaart, Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch, the list could continue.

Many looking at football betting tips note how Spurs could fast become the victims of their own success and exposure in the Champions League.  But manager Harry Redknapp needs to find out whether the club’s ambition matches his own.

Spurs may well need to kiss goodbye to one or two stars if they do not want to stay, sure. But so what? The main thing is getting the best possible outcome of any situation for Tottenham Hotspur.

The best possible outcome at the moment would be for each player to come out and pledge their loyalty to the club.

Should that not happen? Selling any player who is not happy at a price which is beyond reasonable for a new suitor would be a pretty good outcome.  Of course, this would depend on players filling the shirts left behind by any players who go on to pastures new.

The best thing about Harry Redknapp? He’s done that for years.

It’s going to be interesting how the Modric situation pans out, particularly with regards to the player’s personal wishes.

It would be nice to see the player come out and pledge his future to the club who gave him a chance and a platform to prove himself on the greatest stage, something of a rarity in football in the new Millennium.

If not? Then Spurs fans ought to be excited, because the money he’s bound to generate could fetch players who could drag Spurs beyond themselves.  Beyond Arsenal too perhaps?

Be Sociable, Share!

    I don’t think Harry can operate with these mega-money transfers. He is supreme at bargain buys, previous buys and in their latter years buys, but come on face facts, who has he been able to attract that has a so-called “big-name”? The answer is no-one and I for one will do flipflaps round the house if he proves me wrong. Refresh on Newsnow is becoming a chore. Get a move on Levy/Redknapp we can’t stand the strain.

    Try being a gooner, every day we are linked with 27m pound players, we all know wenger won’t spend more than 15m.

    I actually think arry had taken spurs as far as he can, he’s worked wonders but I to believe he can’t handle big transfers and egos


    What a load of rubbish Spurs had horredous injuries and loaned to many players out and our emerging kids like Rose who came back and did a good job Walker who should have also bean at Spurs starred for Villa and the under 21 . So with less long term injuries less energy drugs Kolo was not alone… Even if we don’t sign any new players Pinaar Walker Rose Bostock and a few others could rise to the top. and also without Gomes gifts and a bit more King and Hudds Bale back fully fit we will be back in the top four.
