You can Duff off

You can Duff off

I’ve heard some sick jokes in my time where Tottenham’s transfer targets are concerned but Damien Duff would certainly make the top ten. I’m sure this must be some kind of wind up, I’d rather pull Andy Sinton back out of retirement than sign this leprechaun. Go back four years or so and yes, I would have been very happy to see him in a Spurs shirt but at 30 years of age with his injury record and lack of…

Do you care about Robbie Keane?

Do you care about Robbie Keane?

The rumours have been rife for the last couple of weeks but in recent days, more substantial stories have appeared claiming Robbie Keane will once again be leaving Tottenham before the season gets underway. Opinion seems to be very divided over whether this is a good or a bad thing as far as the future of the club is concerned. Although Robbie’s performances have been lees than spectacular since his return, I feel his presence in the side ensured we…

Tottenham’s Top Transfer Targets

Tottenham’s Top Transfer Targets

Peter Crouch – Crouchy looks the most likely of the current crop of players being linked with Spurs. Harry’s a big fan having signed him for decent money while at Pompey and he seemed to enjoy playing with Defoe during his time there. If Robbie Keane is on the way out then Crouch would be perfect to come in and play alongside Jermain. For all that people like to knock the world’s tallest man, he is a proven Premiership goal…

Gary Mabbutt – A True Legend

Gary Mabbutt – A True Legend

Gary Mabbutt is my favourite Spurs player of all time. His work ethic and consistency was second to none during his playing years as was the example he set as club captain. By chance I stumbled across this article about the role he has played in South Africa’s successful bid to host the 2010 World Cup. 2010’s Unlikely Star By all accounts he was key in South Africa’s achievement. He is married to a South African but the place was…

Do Spurs need this Ruud boy?

Do Spurs need this Ruud boy?

There is no question about it, Ruud van Nistelrooy has been one of the best strikers in the world over the last decade. On the form he showed at PSV, Man Utd and even Real Madrid, he’d be a superb acquisition for Tottenham. The problem is that he’s fast approaching 33 years old and hasn’t played any football for a good nine months following a serious knee injury. Ruud has had more than his fair share of injuries over the…

Crouch to replace Pavlyuchenko?

Crouch to replace Pavlyuchenko?

All the talk the last day or so has been about Roman Pavlyuchenko desperately wanting a move away from THFC. With Darren Bent also likely to leave, I’m assuming Harry will be stepping up his efforts to sign a replacement sooner rather than later. The rumour mill probably hasn’t been quite as fluid as I expected where Spurs are concerned since the close of the domestic season but that isn’t going to last. Djibril Cissé appears to be orchestrating his…

Harry claims quality is aim, let’s hope so

Harry claims quality is aim, let’s hope so

Some of the recent rumoured transfer targets for Spurs have actually scared me. Jones, Downing and the final straw for me this morning, Duff. Harry Redknapp has been quoted as saying he only wants to bring in 3 top class players in the summer. If those are the 3 he considers to be top class, we are in serious bother! He said: “We need three players of the highest quality who can come in and make a difference. “We have…
