Am I right in that?? Have we scored only one goal so far in our pre season games? and that against a team that would struggle in League 2!!
FFS Arry, what more evidence do you want that we are in even more desperate need of a quality striker than anybody could imagine?? I am not sure I can stand another season watching us in 0 - 0 draws or even losing by the odd goal to Swansea.
Meanwhile Manure are knocking them in for fun!

Where's Billy Gallas in that team Joe?
Gio will be sold on 2 August so I read today - that's the day after the Barca sell-on clause expires so we keep all the dosh doing it that way.
Hutton should be the one to go not Charlie (Villa were keen at one stage), but we ought to keep Bassong as cover for Ledley & Gallas.
Livermore will probably go out on loan this season - Rangers were mentioned for both him and Bongani (who we now know will go to Reading).
I'd keep Pav for definite and sell 2 of Keane/Crouch/Defoe and agree we need to get a good strong striker in to give us some clout up front though who is anyone's guess - just as long as it's someone who can fill us with hope rather than despair. 'Arry could also give Harry Kane another chance as he did well v MK Dons the other night scoring 2 goals. We definitely need to keep Niko - he set up Pav's two and Kane's first and scored one himself.
Jury's still out for me on Pienaar though.

Dawson is one of the most committed CBs in the league, and one of the best passers..If he has a fault, its that he over commits at times, and get,s out of position trying to cover the left back to often. that should be where the coaching, and learning comes in, then he'll be as good as any.

I think so many of us are too pessimistic, but we should wait and see, because we will be getting new strikers in, although no guarantee they'll fit in, but that's the same with any new player I guess..We should remember this squad (without Sandro and VdV ) got us into the CL and if our strikers had scored their normal quota, I think we would have finished easily 4th and even possibly 3rd..As we know, we did'nt get a striker in the Jan window, but it seem's we were aiming high with the player's mentioned, but didnt have no luck..with the keeper's, well, I dont know why we didnt try for Given unless it was that city wouldnt sell to direct rival, and why arnt we trying for Ben Foster? but Freidel, although getting on is probably a safer bet than Gomez..think how many points he cost us through his mistake's even allowing for the odd one that anyone can make, plus if he gets a little knock, he become's an embarrassment, and I think the player's lose confidence in him....If we can get goal's this season, then I can see us doing well, because as Arse and the Chav's stand at the moment we can match them, and Liverpool are buying good player's but are relying on Carrol to score load's, but his not that good from what I've seen of him, although Suarez look's very good, so their overloaded with midfielder's but no cover up front..so I say wait and see, we'll get our grey hair when the season start's so why start fretting now?

Spurs should grab Adebayor. Harry seems to be able to handle the more questionable characters and get the best out of them. Adebayor would also no doubt relish playing for Arsenals closest rivals too (just to try and get up the Arsenal fans noses . Wouldn't work though. We detest him waaaay too much.)
Where would Spurs have finished last season if they had had a forward capable of...well....scoring goals?

I feel your pain. The season before last we scored for fun, even players like Kranjcar, Bentley would come on and knock one in. Last season it was either us loosing one nil to a bottom of the table club, winning 2-1 just about or 0-0 draws.
I say let Defoe and Keane go, accept the loss, play Pedroza, Couliby and Gio, at least one of them will partner VDV. Atm, Pav is the only one I'd keep and I'm only 50/50 on him...

I am not a Pav (or Crouch) fan so for me he could go anytime. I would however keep Defoe as I think with the right partner he will still knock in his share of goals.
We will obviously still have the problem of where to play VDV although if Modric does go then that might be solved for us.
My team would, at the moment be something like
A N Other top quality striker
VDV sitting in behind the front two works for me. If Bale gets back to scoring as he was and should plus getting Lennon to be more accurate and take a few, then we should score far more than we did last year. I say "should"!!!
