First they wanted Harry and now they want Crouchy, Harry saw sense so hopefully Crouch will do the same. it’s great to be able to say this but why would Crouch want to go to another team when he could stay at a top 4 club. Reports all weekend have been coming out that Hodgson is desperate to sign Crouch but is he going to get more game time at Liverpool than he would at Tottenham? I would think not, so why on earth would he want to move.

Fingers crossed we can beat Young Boys and then we have Champions League football at the lane so the squad is going to be rotated I would imagine, Crouch will probably feature more for Spurs this season than he would for the Scousers. They have Torres and now they have Joe Cole who might play just behind, so where would they fit Crouch in?

Some people might not see it as a big deal if he leaves for Anfield, and I probably wouldn’t see him as irreplaceable however he adds a different dimension to the squad, now nobody likes seeing us play long ball Wimbledon style but sometimes needs must and you have to take the route one direct style and Crouchy is the ideal target man in them situations. It has worked for Chelsea for years with Drogba as their target man and you could argue it has worked for us due to the fact we have finished top 4 for the first time in the Premiership.

Peter Crouch has helped in turning the fortunes around of the club, would he want to see it through or would he be tempted to go back to Anfield, personally I can’t see him going, I can’t see any logic as to why he would want to go to a club who can’t offer him what we can in Champions League football. It’s a classic case of Liverpool thinking they are bigger than they are and can attract players from our club, I think even if Liverpool come in for Robbie Keane that suddenly they wouldn’t be his boyhood club anymore. Liverpool are not as good as they were and keep living off past reputation and I can’t see any of our players who know they will be in the first team next season would abandon us now in favour of a move to Liverpool.

So if there are any truth in these rumours I don’t even think Harry would let him go and I really can’t see Crouch sulking like Berbatov did just to get a move to Liverpool, no doubt they are a big club but you are only as good as your final league position and that was 3 places behind us. Crouchy will know he will be spending a lot of time on the bench next season but so will a lot of the squad, that is the price you pay if you want Champions League football, United,Chelsea and Arsenal will be doing it and so will we otherwise league form will suffer.

I should do this for a living, look at the quality of that little beauty! Is this what we will all be wearing next season?, this sponsorship deal with Autonomy is for Premiership games only and will run for 2 years, leaving the door open for sponsorship deals for cup competitions.

Some say this way forward is a master stroke by Mr Levy, especially as we are likely to be playing Champions League football, other sponsorships will be on the cards for that which will certainly be worth a few million pounds.Then you have the FA Cup and Carling Cup which may have seperate deals or one deal for both cups .Will other clubs take a note from our book and start following our sponsorship revolution.

So if you look at the image to the left this could look something like what we will be wearing on 14th August for the first home game of the season agaisnt City. You can be sure that due to this sponsorship deal being left till the last minute they have a lot of shirts on standby ready to be printed on for immediate release in the stores. Our new shirts are usually released by now but due to the complex of this seasons new stance on how Daniel Levy wants sponsorship deals to be made for different cup competitions we have had to wait untill now just to find out.

If there shirt on your left was to look anything remotely like I have tried to imitate would you be happy with that as our final shirt or are the fans expecting better?

Autonomy are a global leader in infrastructure software and listed on the FTSE 100 index. They are currently the UK’s largest software company and as part of the deal Autonomy will work with Tottenham in a consultative support role to enhance services to the fans.

We may get branded by other clubs as greedy for having different sponsors for different competitions but let me tell you that is just jelousy talking at the fact that Levy has made a shrude move and really revolutionized and got all he can from sponsorships which will only further enhance the clubs financial stability and spending power in the transfer market.
