Sitting here watching Sky Sports News and was thinking who have we actually signed? All I see is more transfer speculation for us Spurs fans. I mean it seems to me like anyother closed season,we are linked with big name players but as of yet no action. I remember a few years ago being linked with the likes of Kluivert,Rivaldo,Adriano,Ronaldo (the fat one) etc, so it’s not like we have never been linked to big name players but is this year any different, will we actually deliver on the big names?
Has qualifying for the Champions League really made much of a difference to the type of players we get linked with or are Tottenham getting used by other clubs to push up prices of their own players by claiming Spurs want them. One transfer I actually think will happen it’s just a matter of when is Joe Cole on a free. I’m sure Harry knows he can get cole to come to us and Cole recently said he will only come to a Champions League club, which rules out City and Liverpool. Apart from that has finishing 4th really made that much difference or is it just like any other closed season?
With just over a month to go before the start of the new campaign we keep getting linked with the same players week in week out but nothing ever seems to develop. We know we have Brazilian Sandro to join the club but that deal was done some months ago. Harry needs to trim the squad but as of yet nobody has actually left the club either, we know we have to shift out the dead wood and replace them with 3 or 4 players of quality if we are to push on.
I really hope i’m proved wrong in the next few weeks because if we are to push on it’s now or never. We have done the hard work by breaking into the top 4, we now have the means to attract bigger and better players. I expect Harry will bring in 2 or 3 players by August, however I hope he does not get sidetracked by England talk and focuses 100% on the future of Tottenham Hotspur.
So this closed season is it really going to be any different? are we going to be linked to big name playersand end up signing Emile Heskey or for once will we deliver on all this speculation. I would like just one nice suprise in the transfer window by signing someone we have yet to be linked with out of the blue, kind of like Modric, not much was said about him when we actually signed him. My tips are Joe Cole and Micah Richards but I just hope Harry knows he can now aim higher than he has his whole career and can tell the difference between the quality of players he needs for Tottenham opposed to the players he signed at West Ham and Portsmouth.
