Well …… the time is almost upon us. Events in South Africa have been put firmly to the back of our minds and the serious business of the Premier League can now take centre stage.

On 5th May Peter Crouch headed us to a 1-0 win over Roberto Mancini’s side at Eastlands ….. and a season double over our Manchester rivals.

Same Again Please !!! - Crouch Breaks City Hearts

Now, in just a couple of days time, City visit the Lane equipped with new signings Yaya Toure, David Silva, Jerome Boateng and Aleksandar Kolarov ….. a side with £75m of improvements since our last meeting ….. and counting !

With only Sandro in for us so far and the Brazilian unable to make an appearance for Harry Redknapp’s side until his current commitments have been fulfilled, the Spurs line up should have a familiar look with Gio Dos Santos the only player looking ready to gate crash our first XI.

EARLY TEAM NEWS …..

Gareth Bale should make the line-up for Spurs after shaking off the knock that forced him to miss out Wales’ midweek match with Luxembourg.

Roman Pavlyuchenko is still suffering with a hamstring injury and looks likely to miss out.

Jonathan Woodgate is still nowhere near a first-team return.

THE TRIFFIC PREDICTIONS …..

Well, they may have spent big but, Villareal aside, Harrys boys have had a decent pre-season so the City clash should not be striking fear into our boys on the opening day!

With confidence high following our Champions League qualification last time out … at the expense of City, you’d like to think that we could repeat our opening result against Liverpool from last season.

ALDO PREDICTS : 2-1 Spurs

COXIE PREDICTS : 1-1 Draw

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has set his sights on a cut price move for Manchester City’s Craig Bellamy after seeing Joe Cole apparently lured to Liverpool by the Anfield club’s £90,000 a week offer.

The Price Is Right - Redknapp Back In For Craig

Following countless weeks of speculation, former Chelsea star Joe Cole has finally put the longest running transfer saga of the summer to bed ….. with Liverpool his chosen destination.

According to reports Cole, 29 has accepted the bumper £90k a week offer put to him by new reds boss Roy Hodgson and will link up with England team mates Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Glen Johnson at Anfield for the start of the new season.

Following Cole’s reported decision, Harry Redknapp has quickly moved to secure the signature of City star Bellamy.

The much travelled, much maligned striker is set to become Redknapp’s second major squad addition of the summer after the capture of Brazilian midfielder Sandro from Internacional.

Transfer fees being reported are between £3m – £5m and if Spurs chief Daniel Levy could get that down towards the lower end of the scale then it would appear to represent good business for the club when you take into account the probable departure of Robbie Keane.

Meanwhile, comments attributed to Redknapp yesterday suggest that Croation stopper Stipe Pletikosa is on his way to the Lane as competition for Gomes and Cudicini. The 31 year old Spartak Moscow star was close to joining the club last year before a knee injury scuppered plans at that time. Redknapp now appears to be convinced that his injury is behind him and said :

“I might be taking another goalkeeper from Croatia … Pletikosa.

“There is every chance I might be getting him so that’s good.”

Disappointed not to see the Cole deal come off? Would you welcome Craig Bellamy to the Lane or do you think he’d have an unsettling effect on the squad? Who else would you like to see brought in before the window slams shut?

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is trying to offload Robbie Keane to Aston Villa to finance a deal to bring Craig Bellamy to the Lane.

Spurs Hitman To Villa?

This rumour just won’t go away so looks likely to happen, we know Harry is a big admirer of Bellamy. Keane looks certain to leave Tottenham for a second time, he has seen himself drop down the pecking order at the club and knows he can get first team football elsewhere,

Now today we have been linked with Fabiano which gets me more excited at the prospect of seeing Bellamy in our lovely new Spurs kit next season. What I can’t understand is, why are we watching Man City improve their squad and taking the players they had last season who couldn’t get them into the Champions League but yet Harry expects them to do it for us?

In all fairness Craig Bellamy did have a decent season for City last season, but I wouldn’t like to see the likes of Defoe,Pav or Crouchy on the bench for that little trouble maker. He is similar to Robbie Keane except with a bad sulky attitude if he don’t get his way. Decent player but if we want to push on then im afraid we need to aim a bit higher than Craig Bellamy, the thing that pains me is I can see this deal actually happening. Oh well faith in “Arry” and all that.
