Although I must admit, I'm feeling thoroughly underwhelmed by in. SSN were at our training ground and said something about someone having a medical, but my signal cut out when they said who - I couldn't even say for sure if they were coming in or going out, it might have been Bentley to QPR. They then went on to talk about strikers, so didn't sound like it was one of them coming in.
Anyone heard any juicy rumours? Clearest I've got is...
Ooh, SSN just said Andros Townsend arrived at QPR's medical place to find the deal was off! And him, Bents, & JJ were all maybes earlier but they're all currently off - note the currently. Sounds like there are a few offers in for him, I hope only for loan deals, he was one of our key faces for the future a while back.
Also, our academy's apparently meant to be stuffed full of youngsters ready to start bedding into the first tam, which perhaps explains cutting the older players; imagine being mentored by the likes of Gallas, Bale or Parker!
Ever since the News Of The World scandal, no ones tapping phones, hence, no wild rumours this transfer window...and what rumours there were (did you hear the one about the Bale for D. Villa and cash deal) so outrageous as to not even stir interest.
I miss 'Arry. So far this D-Day's been proper dull for Spurs - the most exciting story so far is we've sent Adam Smith on loan to Millwall. Come on football, where are the outrageous rumours which it turns out actually have a tiny slither of truth?? I've come to rely on you...

The thing that most hurts about this anti-climatic day (not even any exciting rumours!) isn't Levy pressing snooze too many times to get up at 2230 and go to work as normal, it's that the person who usurps him with getting the just after 11 signing is none other than Arsene bleeding Wenger! Although they have said it's subject to formal registration being completed, it'd be funny if it didn't happen...
