Players Please

Players Please

So where are these summer signings then?! I expected Tottenham to be very active in the transfer market by now but it just hasn’t happened. It sounds like Harry expected to get Joe Cole but I still thought we’d have three or four new squad members by now. Our boss was quoted in the press today talking about Man City’s resources, claiming fans would not care if ‘Saddam Hussein’ owned their club so long as he was pumping ridiculous amounts…

Will Joe Cole tip the balance?

A few days ago, I wrote an article discussing the online betting for next season’s Premier League title.

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…
