    • If you want a surprise on the last day of the transfer window, how about Harry wheelin' and dealin' to bring Mertesacker to the Lane?

    • Lets face we're not going to be able to compete with the largest clubs in europe for 'world class' players, not in the position we're in at the moment.
      Harry stated at the begining of the transfer window he wanted a CB, CM, and striker. I know they're not 'world class' but Samba, Diarra could certainly do a great job for Spurs this season and, although i don't think we need another striker,Ruiz or Llorente would work well for us.
      If we do need to sell before we buy, we could offload: Bentley, Jenas, Keane, Pavlyuchenko, Palacios, Hutton and Huddlestone. This would significantly lower the wage bill and should free up a few quid, but we 'need' to sell at a realistic price.
      I also thought we needed a keeper, but Friedel will fill the gap until Harry realises Gomes is not any good. With that in mind ,without buying any over priced stars, i believe our first team would look competative like this:
      Friedel, Walker, Dawson, Samba, Assou-Ekotto, Lennon, Modric, Diarra, Bale, Van Der Vaart and Ruiz
      Anyone else like the look of that.......COYS

    • should get chance to see Liorente who is a target

      • So what are you thoughts on Llorente then remmah having seen the game?

        Can't say I was overly impressed, but then again he was hampered by lack of service from his midfield until the 2nd half. Don't know his name but I think it was one of their subs who started providing cross after cross for him and he looked much more of a threat.

        BTW, his full name is Fernando Llorente Torres. If he comes to us (and I think it's unlikely he will) fingers crossed he doesn't have the same sort of season his namesake had last term following his move to the Chavs ;-)

      • its shocking it really is we had a chance to make a statement of intent and show modric we are serious so what did we do? we signed a fat old passed it keeper and 2 kids modric must be delighted.

        I am really dreading this season if we dont get anyone in we are going to struggle end up at the foot of the table then arry will get sacked then we will be right back to square one anyone see a familer pattern here?
