Defoe is a 20 or 30 minute player, he's not up to leading the Spurs attack, he knows this and that's why he wants to leave. In terms of tested blooded talent with clinical finishing ability, we are clearly lacking, as evidenced in the game against Valencia. Indeed we couldn't seem to buy a goal in the last third of the season.
Adebayor will wait till the last moment to sign on the dotted line, he wants his big pay packet and he's not worth what he's asking for.
I think he will sign for Spurs but at the last minute.
So who are we supposedly targeting?
Fernando Llorente Torres/ El Rey Léon/the lion king 27years old, that's him above, Number 16, about to score against England, a big striker, good header of the ball, defences will not like him throwing his weight about, he can hold the ball up and he can score And he wants to leave Athletic Bilbao. Arsenal or in the chase also, so Levy will have to open his war chest, if AVB wants him.
Leandro Damiao 23 years old, big guy like Llorente also good in the air with an eye for a goal and a physical presence as a striker to test defences. however he has played all of his club football in Brazil. How would he fit into the Premiership? Worth a look at?
Either of these guys along with Adebayor woiuld give us some power up front but we also need some nifty fast players coming onto the ball.
Modric is gone, so we will need Dos Santos, committed to the team to press forward, and we have some young fresh talent coming through our youth ranks but they need time and space to mature. However there are murmurs that he wants to leave???????
It is vital that we have a real strike force going into the game against Newcatle, we need these players to blend in. To take the pressure off a renewed team, with a new manager and a whole new attacking vision, if we are to keep the ball up front we need a strong and varied strike force.
The addition of Yann M'Vila 22 year old, strong, powerful, tough and never give up defensive midfielder, can tackle, hold up and deliver a quality ball, he can fill the space Scott Parker is leaving with his injury, Given the pace and rate that players will be asked to play at this season, we need cover and rotation in many positions. He is currently at Rennes and looking to move.
I will just say the name Hugo Lloris and hope that Spurs have his name in their Priority list.
So Levy, do you truly have a War Chest? Do you have Any Aces up your sleeve, if you have them, play them NOW.
For the love of Spurs, you wrecked our heads last season, stop playing silly beggars, if you have the money put it where your mouth is and get us some Strike force,Defensive force and do it soon. No squad can gel if it's new players are arriving off the plane minute before the whistle blows
Can we see some action now so that we can enjoy the action on the pitch, where it counts. We are not guaranteed 3rd or 4th place, we are going to have to earn it and play consistnely for a whole season to get what we deserve.
