From the worst to the best

From the worst to the best

As our currently absent Miss Spur alluded to some time ago, Niko Kranjcar finally completed his move to Spurs yesterday. It’s a Croatian to replace a Croatian by the looks of things after Luka Modric picked up a significant injury at the weekend.

After being linked with a number of targets on deadline day, some good and some worryingly bad, we ended up with just the one signing and probably the best of the bunch at that.

Apart from landing a very good player, the price which Spurs apparently paid makes the transfer one the best pieces of business in this window. Just under £3m for a player of Kranjcar’s quality is a snip, even he was coming to the end of his contract at Pompey.

Kranjcar should be able to do a great job of filling in for Modric while he’s out injured. With Modric, Corluka and now Kranjcar, I think Harry is gradually putting together a nice little Croatian Clique!

The final day of the transfer window may not have been filled with excitement as it often is for Spurs fans but for me that is a good thing. It’s a sign that we now have a level of stability at the club and are not getting sucked into our usual desperation stakes where the only answer is to pay over the odds for average players.

It seems like we have gone from being one of the worst clubs in the country where the transfer market is concerned, to one of the best. The fees we held out for on Berbatov, Keane and Bent were excellent and players like Palacios and Kranjcar looks like absolute bargains. Let’s hope this trend continues in January and that the days of paying £15m and upwards for players like David Bentley and Darren Bent are well and truly behind us.

  1. The Yids are marching on to more Glory Days! With Harry at the helm we can go to the next level. Just need to off load Bentley the liabillity in the next window. Bring in another centre back to cover Ledley, someone hardand committed like Graham Roberts used to be then we will be in buisness. Tottenham Hotspur will once again become the giants of London.

  2. Harry Redknapp doesn’t muck about where transfers are concerned. Not having that Arsenal tosser Comolli around probably helps too.

  3. This s the best window for spurs for two reasons we loaned a good player that may help pompy beat some of our rival in ohara and you never now prince B.And secondly we dident get rid of our top talent to rival teams .Selling david bentley to city would have been stupid that is what city missed against pompy a good crosser to whip the ball onto ady muscles and crock santa when he plays at cristmas. Yes we would have got petrov but we already have one dodgy knee in our beloved king .I promise all my fellow fans david bentley given a chance will become a spurs hero this year along with all .skippy bentley. sky diver bale out.and the rest of the box of toys .COYS

  4. Davspurs i do hope you are right, but forgive me for reapting myself. But at the start of the season i said he was shit, i stand by that for now. He needs to leave his barnet alone and make up bag, and get some solid performances on the feild.

  5. I bet the Goons are shitting themselvs now at the thought of the Yid army finishing higher than them this season. Maybe when old Arsene hangs up his boots and retires they will sink even lower than the top ten. Ha Ha !!!!!

  6. This ‘window’ appears to have been a success…however, The ‘proof is in the pudding’…n’est pas? The capture of another Croat will make a huge difference to our season. In addition….hopefully most of the ‘bench warmers’ will take note of our recent emergence as a top side….and begin to believe in the teal. Perhaps we will FINALLY put pay to the gibes of the other 4 or 5 teams who wish stop our forward march. Time will tell all…as it always does….and many Yid fingers will be crossed….but the eam should help our cause (I pray) COYS!

  7. My hopes of SUCCESS are well founded…and we ‘should’ be capable of beating most teams….and ,notably, Bolton. From then on it can get better and better. Then that local team will be the opposition, again, but, when all is said and done, and when Modric etc are back we can, with justification, made a concerted push for CL places. So far so good? COYS!

  8. I do not even know how I finished up here, however I believed this publish was once good. I don’t realize who you might be however definitely you are going to a well-known blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  9. I don’t know what has happened to Wilson. It seems the pants-ness of the Honduran World Cup exliopts has infected him into this season. As for BAE, he’s always been a Jekyll/Hyde player. In the past, one would wince when you saw him in the back, then he was a comeback player of the year and you would wince when he went out injured b/c that meant Bale was coming in. I think he’s going to be up/down continually.
