So it’s Wigan tomorrow, let’s hope we get the main part out the way in style and avoid no slip-ups like we did against Wolves. Wigan beat us last season at home 1-0 and we can’t afford to let it happen again, we must keep as much daylight between ourselves and Arsenal in 4th until while we are in this run of hard games.
So that’s Wigan out of the way, hopefully, now it’s just the small matter of transfer deadline day. Harry likes to play it down, always and I mean always says we are not looking to do business and before you know it we have the likes of Van der Vaart and Scott Parker in Spurs shirts so we can be forgiven for not believing you Harry.
Harry said after the FA Cup match that he was going on a scouting trip on Sunday, that doesn’t sound to me like someone who isn’t looking to do business. The problem is we have a match tomorrow but I am sure Harry and Levy know who they want and if there is anything to be done then Levy will handle the rest from here while Harry gets us 3pts.
It’s fair to say the last 2 or 3 windows haven’t provided us with the thrills we hoped for, although the summer signings seem to have been better than we hoped for, especially Scotty as it’s fair to say none of us really got excited but it’s not until you watch Parker play every week when you realise just how good he is. There has to come a time when Levy decided to let some of our deadwood go on the cheap just to get rid of them and take a gamble on a couple of signings to cement our top 4 place.
There could be any number of possible deals, Chris Samba, Leandro Damiao and Loic Remy are a number of players we have been linked with but will Levy loosen the purse strings and put his trust in a man who is yet to fail this football club? I think he should, we are 3rd and any money laid out that will all but guarantee us that place will be reimbursed next year with Champions League revenue.
So tomorrow would be the perfect day if we woke up on Wednesday with 3 pts and a £20m striker at the club don’t you think? Will we do any business though and if so then who do you expect to see come in and who do you expect to leave?
