If you’re anything like me, you’re probably staring at your screen with a face as long as a horse, trying to pick yourself up after the news that our first game (and rare first game at home) has been cancelled due to something about riots…or something like that!

This means that our first Premier League game of the 2011/12 season is away to Man United. It’s almost as if they knew there would be a disturbance and thought this would be a fun way to start the season for Spurs. Anyway, this is a game that unless you live in the land of fairy tales you know we won’t win! Therefore, why don’t we play our youth/reserve team against the Red Devils, and I don’t just mean this game, I mean every fixture against United. The FA/Referees Association/EPL clearly won’t allow us to win a game against United. The evidence to this is clearly presented every game with the FA sending their best men to ensure that the 3 points for United is the only outcome. So play the youth, save our first team squad any injuries in a game we won’t win anyway. You never know, with Paul Scholes retied, we might be left with shins intact to run another day.

This will give our youth/reserve team a run out, a bit of experience and ensures that first team members remain injury free to play in games we could genuinely win. I honestly feel we could beat any team at and ground in the Prem…except for Man U..simply because illegitimate refereeing, un-sportsmanship and phenomenal luck are all against us in every single game and that unless the FA decides they like us, or dislike United, we won’t be able to beat 14 men.

Please feel free to disagree with me, but we are fighting an un-winnable battle, trying to climb out of a bottomless pit of cheating and un-sportsmanship. Why waste energy on it when you could focus on winning matches against the lower teams in the Prem…teams we should be beating.

Right…point raised…now I need to scan eBay for a Ladbrokes endorsed plasma TV and some new Nike’s. They seem to be in abundance at the moment…….

Modrić going nowhere!

Luka Modric’s agent, Mario Mamic, is today the third major figure to declare that the Croatian magician will be staying at Spurs after telling Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List “Luka will not go to Manchester United and he will also stay at Tottenham because I know that president Daniel Levy will not let him go”.

Daniel Levy and Luka himself have also stated that he is staying at Spurs and that he is happy, not to mention that he is on a 6 year contract. Hopefully this can put an end to the Daily Mail spurting rumours and trying to coerce Modric to leave.

Some of the figures being mentioned for Modric’s services would also be daylight robbery. Mamic’s father, vice-president of Dinamo claimed “I heard that somebody has offered £20m pounds for Luka but that’s crazy. When we talk about Modric, that price would only be enough to buy peanuts”.

I, like almost all Spurs fans absolutely do not want Modric to leave as I believe he is our best player by far; and certainly not for silly season sums like £20m. If Lescott for £24m is anything to go by, then Modric must be worth 5 times that! Torres, the £50m man…that scored once…against West Ham…when it was so wet the defenders couldn’t stand up, would surely match Modric’s value and I would be shocked if a bid of less than £50m was accepted for Luka.

Personally I would not accept any offer from Modric and continue to state that he is not for sale at any price, but would you sell him if a high enough offer came in and what would you sell him for if so? Comments and Opinions?

Can We Push On Next Season?

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.
