NOTES

  • Clubs must name squads containing at least eight homegrown players and no more than 25 players in total.
  • A homegrown player is defined as one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Welsh Football Association for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).
  • In keeping with UEFA guidelines, an Under-21 player is defined as one who is under the age of 21 on January 1 in the year in which the season commences. For the 2010-11 campaign, Under-21 players will have been born on or after January 1, 1989.
  • Any players under 21 can be added to the squad, regardless of nationality.
  • – Rules apply only to Premier League matches, not European, FA Cup or League Cup action.
  • .
    .

    So no Woody in the Spurs 25, that doesn’t mean he is finished, the squad can be altered in January and he isn’t going to be fit by before then so this makes perfect sense. If his operation goes well and he makes a recovery then expect him to be included in the next squad.

    Just having a flick through some of the early morning papers and one has picked up on a story that I have also heard whispers of and that is that Newcastle United are the latest club to be interested in Robbie Keane.

    Now Newcastle don’t want to buy him they want a loan deal but with Tottenham contributing to the wages of the Irish striker. Tottenham refused to loan him to Celtic because he isn’t getting any younger and we need to cash in while we still can. Surely if Tottenham were going to accept a loan deal then they would let Keane have his dream move back to Celtic.

    Aston Villa were persuing Keane for most of the summer but that deal seems to have died when Martin O’Neill resigned as the Villa boss earlier this month. It looks like Keane will move on before the window closes as Harry looks to buy a big name striker, the question is where will Keane end up, he once had a loving home here at Tottenham but since he returned from Liverpool it has not been the same feeling for Keane or the fans. One thing looks for sure, Spurs want to sell Keane and not loan him out yet again. He is now fourth choice striker and if that is the case then it is time to move on again.

    Redknapp shows an interest in Sporting front man …..

    Spurs target ? ..... Lisbon's Djalo

    The agent of Sporting Lisbon forward Yannick Djalo has revealed that Spurs and Newcastle Utd are battling it out for the Portuguese forward’s signature this summer.

    24-year-old Djalo, who can also operate as a winger, is highly rated by the Portuguese club.

    But financial worries at the club mean they may now be forced to sell their most valuable asset.

    The striker’s agent Lionel Silva has revealed that there has been concrete interest from England, with Harry Redknapp an admirer of the  portuguese youngster.

    “The two clubs are interested” agent Silva said.

    “But we have not reached an understanding with regard to price. We have to wait a little longer.

    “He (Djalo) fancies the idea of going to England, because playing in the English Premier League is a dream for most players.

    “But while there is not total agreement on a deal, Yannick has to report to work (at Sporting) every day.”

    Personally, I’m not sure how much truth there is in this one. Sounds a bit like the agent is trying to spark a bidding war and drive his client’s price up. However he does look a decent player and you would imagine he could do a job for us during the course of the season. Whether he’s got the potential to become a fixture in the side and compete at Champions League level is up to Harry to decide!

    Uruguay world cup star reopens door back to the Premiership but could it be career over for Spurs’ England defender?

    Change of heart? Forlan refuses to rule out move back to England.

    Supposed Redknapp target Diego Forlan has refused to rule out a move away from Atletico Madrid this summer.

    The Uruguayan striker is chasing the Golden Boot at this summer’s World Cup in South Africa having already scored four goals in his country’s route to Saturday’s third place play off against the Germans.

    Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has been open when speaking of his admiration of Forlan, but the former Man Utd man has previously ruled out a return to the Premier League.

    The striker struggled during his spellat Old Trafford, however, he has since flourished with more than 100 goals in Spain for Villareal and Atletico to draw the attention of a number of top clubs around Europe.

    And Forlan admits that he would consider a summer move, telling Sky Sports News: “They have to be a good offer and we have to see.

    “I am very happy in Madrid and the way the city and the team are always with me.

    “(But) you never know. If it is a good offer we have to see if the team wants me to leave or not and then we have to sit and talk.”

    End of the Road? Woody suffers yet more injury woe!

    Meanwhile one player for whom the future does not look quite so bright is our injury jinxed England centre half Jonathon Woodgate.

    Woodgate is running out of time to save his Spurs career, according to boss Harry Redknapp.

    Woodgate played the disappointing total of only three games last season and failed to manage a single appearence from November onwards.

    Redknapp has now warned the 30 year-old he will have ‘big problems’ if a persistent groin injury is not cured soon.

    “We’ve really got to monitor him and see where he’s at because it’s been a year now for Jonathan and he’s really got to be coming back and playing now” said Redknapp.

    “If he doesn’t, if he’s not going to be back pretty soon, he’s got big problems, so it is an area we’re looking at. Sebastien Bassong did well for us last year so we’ll see how we go.”

    Woody will always be remembered by Spurs fans for his winner against Chelsea in the League Cup final, but sentiment can only take you so far and if he fails to recover soon we won’t be too disappointed to see him removed from the payroll. For a player once considered to be Englands’s best centre half, it could be a very sad end to what could have been such a great career!

    This was his David Bentley’s Sky Sports interview, if you been watching it throughout the day you will have probably seen it:

    David Bentley admits he remains uncertain as to whether he will still be at Tottenham next season.

    The 25-year-old winger has struggled to make the desired impact at White Hart Lane since making a big-money move from Blackburn in 2008.

    First-team opportunities have been sporadic, with Bentley unable to hold down a regular role.

    That proved to be the case again last season, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp awarding him just 12 Premier League outings.

    A lack of action has led to speculation regarding his future, with some suggesting he would be wise to move on.

    Bentley, though, insists he remains committed to the Tottenham cause and will be doing his utmost during pre-season to force his way into the fold.

    “Hopefully I will get fit and as strong as possible and look to have another good season,” he told Sky Sports News.

    “Whether I get out on the pitch, you never know. You can be as fit as possible but not play any football, so we will see what happens.”

    Options

    On the possibility of making a move elsewhere, Bentley added: “We will have to see, you never know. I’m at Tottenham at the minute, but let’s see what happens.”

    Bentley is keen to remain in north London, with Tottenham preparing to enter the Uefa Champions League next season.

    The opportunity to appear in Europe’s premier club competition certainly appeals to Bentley, but he accepts that competition for places remains fierce.

    He is currently battling with England international Aaron Lennon for a right-wing berth and knows he may be forced to settle for a place on the bench at times.

    “I think when you are at a top club that’s what happens,” he said.

    “The Champions League is great for the club and great for the fans and hopefully it will be great for me. But you never know and we will have to see what is going to happen.”

    Judging by his comments here it seems to me as though he would like to stay and would be happy with next seasons squad rotation system. I for one have grown to like Bentley more and more last season, he done a good job when Lennon was injured and I believe he brings good team spirit in the dressing room. Next season we will need a squad of talent and not just our first 11. Lennon isn’t going to be able to play midweek and then again on a saturday all season long and who better to have fill in on the right than Bentley?

    What do you guys think? do you like the idea of him staying or do you want shot of him?
