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?

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes Manchester United may have already struck a deal for Joe Cole.

The 28-year-old will not have his Chelsea contract renewed this summer and a number of clubs have been chasing his signature.

Redknapp has confirmed that he would love to see the midfielder move to Spurs, while Arsenal and United are also thought to be trailing the England international.

But while Redknapp wants Cole at White Hart Lane, he thinks the Red Devils may have already won the race to sign him.

“I’ve got a feeling that it might have been done (for Cole to join United),” he said.

“It wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Joe’s not wanted to speak to anybody and his people have been saying ‘let’s get the World Cup out of the way first’.

“But we’d be interested for sure. I like Joe.”

Cole has been the subject of much debate in recent days as he has yet to make an appearance for England in this summer’s World Cup.

Taken from the Sky Sports interview, hope it’s not true, I like Cole and was hoping for a bargain free transfer. Really thought Harry wouldn’t let him slip through the net, but who can turn down Fergie? Still, while there’s Arry there’s hope.

Modric Staying Put!

Well it seems that Luka Modric will not be leaving, we know the big clubs want him but they can only offer him the same as us now which is champions league football.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has quashed talk that he will sell playmaker Luka Modric, stressing that the Croatian is not for sale.

Modric has been linked with a £25 million move to Manchester United following a successful campaign with Spurs, helping them qualify for the Champions League.

Redknapp is looking to challenge at the top of the Premier league and in Europe next term, and is therefore not interested in allowing one of his most influential players to depart White Hart Lane this summer.

He said in The Sun: “There’s no chance of it happening at all. Luka’s key to everything that’s happening at this place.

“Everybody knows what I think of him. And if you want to move on to higher levels you don’t start flogging off your best players – to anyone.

“I have an excellent squad and – I stress – Luka Modric is going to remain a part of it.”

Redknapp is determined not to lose another of his stars to United following the departures of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov to the Red Devils in recent seasons.

It has been suggested that Spurs are also interested in Manchester City’s Stephen Ireland and Bolton defender Gary Cahill, but Redknapp denied the reports.

The club has also been linked with a move for Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies after Martin O’Neill claimed he is open to talks over the 25-year-olds future.
