All this rot about “we are getting this guy”, “we need that guy”or “that guy is pants” is really annoying. We have been linked to everyone who has ever kicked a ball (except for me) and yet when I hear these rumors, I have to cringe at the thought of some of them.
Beckham? Seriously? Yeah not for me especially with his salary demands and his massive media circus that follows him. Mr. Posh Spice could stay in L.A. working on his tan.
Dzeko, not a chance. Not because of the proposed transfer fee, but because of his salary demands. I believe I read on Daily Mail that he wants 180K a week. Yup, sorry buddy, Citeh is the place for you. Plus I’m not even too sure about his abilities. Yes, he has scored goals for fun in Germany, but he has a great partner in Grafite (who I think would be a better option as he would want a lot less), plus with the exception of Berba, how many Bundesliga strikers come to the EPL and make it?
Samba, again I ask why? Yes, he’s big and strong and could play up top when needed, but with our deep, deep CB surplus (7 by my count although King and Woody are still out) why would we need another CB? We bought our CB for the winter in Khumalo so why do we need another. No go for me.
Fabiano, I could see this one happening but only as a loan with an option to buy if he performs well. I do like Brazilians, they are mega talented and we have two very good ones in Gomes and Sandro, but they sometimes act like little babies (see Robinho) and party too much. And Fabiano has had a number of flare-ups at Sevilla, so I really don’t like this one too much, but again, it could happen.
Suarez, we have heard about this one for quite some time now and I feel this move would be good. He is a quick, strong striker who has a nose for goal. He has shone at the World Cup and has been consistently among the top scorers in Holland. Yes, Holland is not the EPL but he is worth a shot at about 15-17 mill pounds. His wages might be a stumbling block though.
Parker, I’m sorry but everyone must be smoking something that I’m not getting in on. He is the best player on a pitiful team. He is a good player, that is all. What more would he bring to Spurs? Box-to-box midfielder, with our performances for the last month or so, why do we need one of those when we had Modders, Jenas and even Wilson doing an admirable job. Plus when we get Tommy back, what does Parker do….sit on the bench and collect his wages. West Ham could keep him so he could be the best player in the Championship next season.
Pienaar, if he is available for 1-2 mill, then yes. Anything more, no thank you. His a player in the Jenas mold who may be good cover if we get decimated by injuries (again). Plus his wages won’t be a problem as he is not on a big salary over at Everton. Good team player, but only for cheap.
I think that covers all of the most abundant rumors that have come up during the past month or so. What do you all think? Am I off my rocker, as my girlfriend says, or have I made a point or two? Thanks for reading everyone!
