Heurelho Gomes has spoken out again, as he has been doing quite a bit of recently, you’ve got to love him.

Gomes agrees with Harry that Spurs are a couple of players short of a push for the title but said he was pleased with the new signings so far this season.

“You need experienced players, those who know how to win the Premier League,” said the Gomes. “I think we need players like that, quality. We have quality players already, but you need players to make an impact on the team, like Van der Vaart has.”

Gomes then talked about the possibility of other clubs trying to sign Gareth Bale:

“It’s normal when a player has done a great job like Gareth at the moment. “Maybe another club will come, this is normal. But I think Tottenham will try to keep him. He is fast, has ability and is fantastic for us.”

More good news for Spurs fans as Defoe’s recovery is ahead of schedule and this news also pleases the Brazilian:

“We miss him a lot because he is a goal- scorer,” said Gomes. “All the time when a player gives him the ball you expect something. “Of course we miss him, but we have to keep going and other players have to try to score goals for us.”

Now some of you might agree with what I am about to say and some of you probably won’t but as always I would like to hear your comments below.

Last season Aaron Lennon was nothing short of amazing for us, teams were having to double up on him in an attempt to keep him quiet. All was going well until his injury which kept him out for a few months. Since coming back towards the end of last season he has not been the same player. He had a poor World Cup and still hasn’t been as good as he was last season for us.

Lennon seems to be lacking confidence in taking on players, something that used to come to him naturally but this season he seems to be looking for the simple pass. I have heard some fans say that at the moment Lennon is cheating in the Tottenham team and not pulling his weight, he only seems to be interested if he has the ball at his feet. It is a mixture of these things which has seen Redknapp drop him to the bench in recent weeks, a player that was once a dead cert to start now has genuine concerns of being left on the bench.

There is one thing that has come out of this and I would love to hear if anyone else has noticed this or if it’s just me being deluded. I have noticed that his crossing seems to have improved, maybe because he is not running at pace so much which means he has more control over his crosses. He has put in a few lovely crosses for Crouch recently and put in an absolute peach the other day. Also his crossing with his left foot seems to have improved no ends as well, he seems unfazed on whether the ball is on his right or left.

So a few negatives and a positive in my book, but for me I want Lennon to be the player he was for most of last season, because now we have Bale on the left if Lennon could rediscover his true form then teams would really fear us.
