After searching through today’s news I found that the majority of articles Regarding transfers have concentrated themselves around one Lassana Diarra formerly of Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth but more recently of the Spanish giants Real Madrid.
At first my thoughts were more than a little optimistic after all he is a wonderful player,one that whilst some refer to him as a defensive or holding midfielder which concerns most of his time breaking up the opposition attack before giving the ball with simple, if not guileful passes to those around him that can do more effective damage in the attacking third and yet others see him as more of a box to box type winning the ball then setting of on a marauding run deep into the opposition half,although both sets of views tend to agree that he has an eye for a pass,works hard and can score the odd goal or two. Well to be precise it is in fact two league goals one for Portsmouth and the other for Real Madrid.
Goal scoring aside though I agree that he would be another quality signing for Tottenham,one that would add even more strength to what was once commonly, if not comically considered by many pundits as Spurs soft underbelly. I also took to wondering how we would accommodate such a wealth of power in our side apart from the ever obvious injury cover and replacement to loss of form. After all lest we forget our very own Wilson Palacios and one newbie Brazilian Sandro Ranieri, both of which though slightly different in style are full on midfield enforcers.
For me then the way forward has to be the use of a midfield five as most if not all the top sides accommodate this system of play, although just for the sake of debate would there be any possible case for employing all three in the same starting line up? perhaps not,as to do so you would most likely have to relinquish the golden haired magician Modric from his favoured position in the centre of midfield, unless of cause said Croatian was moved out to the left with Bale reverting back to the left side of defense this though in turn takes away a major part of our attacking threat.
Either way the acquisition of our French enforcer would give us or rather Harry a bit of a dilemma, although what a sore head to have after all who could possibly live with the midfield minefield of Diarra, Palacios and Sandro should Harry ever decide to twist rather than stick.
What then would be your preferred line up? Would it differ home or away, not forgetting there is also the plastic pitches of Europe to consider.Follow @TrfficTottenham
