Berbatov out, Arshavin in

Berbatov out, Arshavin in

The revolving door at the Lane keeps on turning and the next couple of days should see Dimitar Berbatov finally tie up his move to Manchester United, while Andrei Arshavin will become a Tottenahm Hotspur player. Both these transfers feel like they have been dragging on for longer than we had to endure Justin Edinburgh at left back, and that was a long frigging time! Utd’s bid for David Silva was rebuffed by Valencia and it looks like they want…

Corluka, oh how I love a drama!

Corluka, oh how I love a drama!

What we posted on Sunday regarding the Corluka deal being completed and City being in turmoil is now the lead story in the tabloids today. Although Hughes released a statement trying to cover the whole situation up yesterday, the full story has now been exposed. Corluka doesn’t want to be at the sinking ship that is City and I’ll be surprised if he isn’t in a Spurs shirt by the weekend. Corluka’s agent said: “Vedran is very unhappy with the…

You can keep your billionaires

You can keep your billionaires

Since Daniel Levy came to the club, it’s been rumoured that he’s looking to get Spurs into the Champions League then sell on his shares at a huge profit. Other stories suggest he’s a lifelong Tottenham fan with the club’s best interests at heart. Maybe he’s a bit of both. He’s had his good and bad patches for me but if what is happening at other Premier League clubs is anything to go by, I hope Levy is around for…

Corluka, Kaboul and Roma

Corluka, Kaboul and Roma

Last night Vedran Corluka was a Spurs player, today he’s been forced back to Manchester by City boss Mark Hughes. Everything was tied up apart from his work permit and he was meant to be attending the Roma game today. Things are never perfect where Spurs are concerned but I feel for Man City fans, the club seems an absolute shambles and Mark Hughes must be wondering what he’s doing there. The deal has been negotiated behind his back and…

Tottenham starting eleven?

Tottenham starting eleven?

I thought it would be interesting to get people’s thoughts on our starting eleven against Middlesbrough. I know there could be a player or two brought in by then and possibly Berbatov could be gone but here’s what I fancy. GK GomesLB BaleRB Hutton (probably won’t be fit, maybe Zokora)CB WoodgateCB King (again, may not play this game, probably Dawson)LM Lennon (Bale may play here and Ekotto at left back)RM BentleyCM ModricCM JenasAM GiovaniCF Bent I like the idea of…

I don’t want a slave

I don’t want a slave

Hot on the heels of Sepp Blatter’s comments that Christiano Ronald is a ‘modern day slave’, football has another. Andrei Arshavin has decided to go on strike because his current club Zenit St Petersburg are pricing him out of a move to Tottenham. Spurs have agreed personal terms with the player but they will not meet Zenit’s ridiculous asking price of over £20m. Arshavin’s agent Dennis Lachter said; “This is the Russian way.” “Nothing will change because this is the…

Hope for Huntelaar

Hope for Huntelaar

Being a Spurs fan is amazing. I probably get more excited in the run up to the season than I do once the actual games get underway. I have come to realise most of the copy I read where transfers are concerned is complete fiction but some of it still gives me a buzz….unless it’s regarding Dean Ashton and £15m from the THFC coffers. Apart from our ‘bid’ for Dean Ashton, there have been a few little squeaks about Klaas-Jan…

There is no Zokora deal

There is no Zokora deal

There is a story flying about today about Martin Jol wanting to take Didier Zokora to Hamburg. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a total fabrication. Jol didn’t even want him at Spurs, his transfer was all Comolli’s work, why the hell would he want him at Hamburg?! I saw Zokora play in a friendly at White Hart Lane against Real Sociedad, must be two years ago now. At the time I was quite impressed. He looked composed on the…

Corluka agrees terms

Corluka agrees terms

According to various report this morning, Tottenham are about to unveil the signing of Croatia International Vedran ?orluka. Corluka was signed by Manchester City at the start of last season for around £8m. Apart from one bad mistake when Chelsea gave them a good hiding, he looked like a very solid player and was a key member of their side over the course of the season. Mark Hughes either doesn’t fancy him or thought Spurs’ offer was too good to…

Villa, not Arshavin?

Villa, not Arshavin?

The big rumour doing the rounds today is that Spurs have become frustrated with the lack of progress in the chase for Andrei Arshavin and have turned their full attention to the capture of Valencia’s David Villa. The longer it goes without a serious move for Villa from one of the big Champions League sides, the more chance Spurs have of securing his signature. With no other offers having been forthcoming, Tottenham officials have apparently gone back in for their…
