Well the week is coming to an end and like all Tottenham fans, I am loving this summer far more than any other. That’s because nearly every player we are linked with is a realistic target this season and it’s nice to finally see Spurs linked with some of the more decent Premiership players instead of the likes of Emile Heskey all the time.

Todays newspapers are reporting all sorts such as, Scott Parker to Tottenham in a deal involving O’hara going to the Hammers. Also, Gary Cahill may be in a deal where Alan Hutton would be included. These are good potential deals because not only will we be able to reduce the price by including a player swap, but it will help get rid of some of the players surplus to requirements at the lane. Looks like Villa and Stoke want Jenas (the sooner he goes, the better in my view),we also know that Villa are keen on Bentley and Keane so let’s see how that pans out.

Everton’s Steven Pienaar and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to Tottenham reports started surfacing once again on Saturday night and are in the Sunday papers. Now don’t get me wrong; I know it might just be paper speculation but my whole point here is that it’s nice to see us linked with some decent players and not rumours that we might re-sign Pascal Chimbonda again. My point is finishing 4th has already changed our club far more than we could ever have imagined.

Reports are also surfacing that Liverpool want Harry Redknapp as their next manager, well to me it’s laughable, I would put my house on Redknapp turning that offer down. Liverpool are on the way down and not up, so why Harry would even be interested in entertaining that idea is beyond belief. On a brighter note it looks like Ledley King will now be John Terrys partner in the heart of Englands World Cup defence and has even started training with the team. Personally I would drop Terry for Dawson but then again I’m biased.

I don’t think Tottenham can still sign the major big names in football but we are going in the right direction and for once I am more excited than ever to see who joins us this summer. I also have a sneaky feeling and although Harry dismisses it, that Joe Cole will be wearing a Tottenham shirt next season.

COYS!!

Well as I predicted in a recent post here it looks like the 2 unlucky Spurs players to miss out were in fact Dawson and Huddlestone. It looks as though Capello has opted for experience over form,as Upson and Carragher made it into the squad over Dawson despite Dawson having a better season. Carrick made it in over Huddlestone, despite Huddlestone having a better season.

Other players to miss out were Theo Walcott, Darren Bent, Scott Parker, Adam Johnson and suprisingly Leighton Baines.

Tottenham will still have 4 players representing them in the England team in Defoe,King,Lennon and Crouch. There were doubts over King would make the cut due to his fitness but personally I dont think his place was ever in question, every England manager has noticed the talents of Ledley and worked hard to get him into the England set up and when he has played he never let them down. For the likes of Huddlestone and Dawson, maybe not this time but i’m sure they have plenty of caps to come in the future.
