Next season will see spurs enter into the unknown, not only will we have to compete in 3 domestic competitions but will also have to juggle a Champions League campaign too. If we are being realistic, what can we hope to achieve next season?

Firstly the aim will no doubt be to finish in the top 4 again to keep the fans and players happy and to also balance the books. With the plans of a new stadium this is essential. Another aim will be to have a good run in the Champions League as this is our first time in Europe’s elite cup since its rebranding to the CL. I don’t think we will do a Leeds and reach the semi finals but I would consider it a good pop at it if we managed to get through the groups. But before all this we have the little matter of a qualifying game to overcome. If our league form is going well again next season I would suggest the Carling cup will be used for some of the youngsters to get a game, and why not? evey other top 4 club does it. As for the FA cup i’m sure Harry will do his best to win that.

Now our chances of having a good season next campaign will probably depends a lot on how we push on in the summer transfer window, who will come and who will go?. Well it’s nice for a change to be linked with some real big names and know there is a real possiblity of attracting these players now. One name that keeps popping up is Joe Cole on a Bosman and this would be a great addition. Harry should have sufficient funds to spend and can raise even more with the expected sales of Keane,O’hara,Dos Santos and Jenas which could raise over £20mil extra to add to the fund. So for all us Tottenham fans it promises to be an exciting summer. However we have already made the most significant signing of the transfer window by Modric extending his stay for a further 6 years.
So who knows what the 2010/11 season will hold, let’s just hope for once we can deliver and push on and finally live up the the expectations that we have never lived up to. Is this just a flash in the pan or are the sleeping giants finally awakening? I know one thing for certain, Arsenal are definately looking over their shoulder now.

Well it seems that Luka Modric will not be leaving, we know the big clubs want him but they can only offer him the same as us now which is champions league football.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has quashed talk that he will sell playmaker Luka Modric, stressing that the Croatian is not for sale.

Modric has been linked with a £25 million move to Manchester United following a successful campaign with Spurs, helping them qualify for the Champions League.

Redknapp is looking to challenge at the top of the Premier league and in Europe next term, and is therefore not interested in allowing one of his most influential players to depart White Hart Lane this summer.

He said in The Sun: “There’s no chance of it happening at all. Luka’s key to everything that’s happening at this place.

“Everybody knows what I think of him. And if you want to move on to higher levels you don’t start flogging off your best players – to anyone.

“I have an excellent squad and – I stress – Luka Modric is going to remain a part of it.”

Redknapp is determined not to lose another of his stars to United following the departures of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov to the Red Devils in recent seasons.

It has been suggested that Spurs are also interested in Manchester City’s Stephen Ireland and Bolton defender Gary Cahill, but Redknapp denied the reports.

The club has also been linked with a move for Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies after Martin O’Neill claimed he is open to talks over the 25-year-olds future.
