Amidst the transfer news of who's coming and who's going, much like buying a house, there's no point pouring out the champagne until you've signed the dotted line and got the keys. So we speculate, wish and hope for quick smash and grab successful swoops and await confirmation.
Here's a little break from reality, bringing back memories of one very eccentirc Colombian Goalkeeper Rene Higuita, back in 1995 and the first time I had ever seen such an incredibly timed Scorpion kick, right off the goal line. Here's one from another South American source, Bolivia via the acrobatic endeavors of Erlan Mealla.
Mastering the bicycle kick is one thing, however, the Scorpion kick is another step up the ladder of footballl acrobatics. It should be an olympic sport.
I'm going out right now to have a go in the back garden, I just rang the chiropractor, he's on call.
Meantime I hope by the time I have recovered that we have our new, top class young goalkeeper on his way to the Lane and Modric has packed his bags and headed off to Madrid.
Above all, I hope that Spurs start out of the blocks as the new season dawns, with the sting in the tail, flair, deadly focus and counterstrike of the scorpion. Time for the Spurs to fire on all cyclinders with and without the ball. The Scorpion kings surface and no one sees it coming except us, the Spurs fans, oh the delight of seeing some magic and real success out there on the pitch.
