Who should go, who should come??

Given we are no chance now to play champions league next year, its time to think about the off season. Should we try and cash in on some of our stars, get rid of the mid tiers and who should come in..

Personally I still believe we are only a good striker and a lucky run with injuries away from being a serious challenge to winning the league so would not want to sell any of our A graders, but will need to cash in on our mid tier players, who will not make us get any better.

I would sell –
Jenas – 5 mill
Gomes – 6 mill
Bassong – 4 mill
Kranky – 6 mill
Pav – 6 mill
Corluka – 6 mill
Bentley – 5 mill
Keane – 2 mill
Dos Santos – 5 mill
O Hara – 6 mill

We should thanks King & Woodgate and make them retire. This should free up our wage bill and give us plenty of cash to rebuild our team. We need to bring in 25-30mill striker, bring walker back from loan and buy back up for Ekotto and a first choice keeper (maybe Given) and a first choice defender to partner Dawson for the next 5 years.

I would get rid of the following:

O’Hara
Jenas (Although I’m afraid he will stay because twitcher has a love in with him)
Gomes
Dos Santos
Bentley
Keane

If we ever want this club to be successful and reach the dizzy heights of a title or chumps league again we need to hang onto a best players, simple as that. We cannot be a selling club any longer.
Keep Bale, Modric, VDV. But we need to bring in a striker or two, of the 30m range.

I would have another play at Sergio Aguero. If not, Remi from Marseille or Falcao from Porto. Also I would have a play at an experienced Striker like Forlan, Bebacunt or Drogba – regardless if they’re cunts, if the price is right, its exactly what we need. Let’s quickly put something in perspective, if Lennon played for any other club I would no doubt hate him, he’s a little chav of the highest order. I can never warm to someone like Drogba but I could tolerate him because he would bang the goals away. I believe Gallas is good enough to partner Dawson in the middle for another season, but bringing in someone like Cahill would be awesome, although he would be overpriced.

A fucking goalkeeper – Shay Given, Foster, someone other than Gomes.

And chuck fucking money at Mourinho. He wants to come back to England, get him whilst we can. He’s a cunt but trophies don’t lie. Furthermore, players would be attracted to come to Tottenham with him in charge because he is a ambitious cunt and would expect nothing less than top 4 next year.

i think its easier to list who to keep, for me:

Dawson
Bassong
Ekotto
VDV
Bale
Modric
Sandro
Krankcar
Lennon
Walker
Rose
Pienaar

plus Clive Allen and a thank you to Ledley and Woodgate

hand the rest a p45 and make sure they never darken our shores again

Bassong, i think he is rubbish has proven time adn time again he wont cut it at the top level, Kranky has been great but the gaffer clearly doesnt rate him so need to sell him whilst he still has currency. I would probably give Hutton another season to prove himself and Kaboul has been unlucky with injuries but has shown glimpses of the quality that made us first sign him so I think is worth persisting with.

Sell:
Gomes
Hutton
Dos Santos
O’Hara
Kranky (dont want to but harry doesnt play him)
Bentley
Keane

Buy
A top quality keeper- no idea who
Striker- one of Hulk, Rossi, Aguero, Falca

Unfortunately the names mentioned won’t be sold as cheap, Levy wants CAPITAL and thinks he can get 13m for Pav sorry you live in a dream world.

Of all the names mentioned I like Falcao from Porto he’s young and scoring consistently.

so I’d like to see the back of
COCO, COCO, COCO, COCO and fecking COCO
Jenas, Keane, Ledley to be given a coaching job, Woodgate, Bassong, Pienaar, Palicious, Hutton, that should raise 35m and reduce the wage bill by 16m a year.

The two from Porto, Falcao and Hulk, are both dynamite.
Jenas will stay (squad player, better than O’Hara)
Pienaar will stay (only arrived in Jan)

Keane, Bentley, O’Hara, dos Santos, and maybe King/Woodgate are all off.
Get Kyle Walker back, get rid of Hutton, find us two centre-halves and a couple of strikers and we’re in the business.
I really don’t think there’s a need for massive changes.

On a slightly unrelated note, why is there such vitriol at times towards our players / manager?
I agree with many that some of our players aren’t good enough and although I have supported most of what Redknapp has done, as you well know, I wasn’t impressed with his decisions vs Chelscum.
But the level of anger (Redknapp’s a c*nt, Gomes is a c*nt, yada yada) is astonishing. Those two have on the whole earnt us a sh*tload of point in the last three seasons. I prefer to save my aggression for l’Ars*nal and Chelsea, who really are a bunch of c*nts.
Is it just inherent anger from the dinosaurs about being old bastards? 😆

I agree with most the suspects mentioned as players to leave and then there is jenas.
As players to come in yes top of list falcoa, but may not get him as porto in cl next yr.
I want stellanbek (spelling bit wonky) – the dutch keeper for coco.
And i want ashley young for lennon. And bring back walker for any club silly enough to take hutton or corluka.

Gomes should stay……he’s one of the younger EPL keepers and has kept us in many games. If we shuffle people off because of some mistakes, fuck me we’ll be turnin them over left right and centre.
What about the goals that were scored because of fullback errors? Don’t see Dawson featuring in the lists yet he was woeful when he started and still at times, worries me. BAE struggled at first. Jenas must be holding nude photo’s of twitcher to still be in the team let alone on the bench, Crouch has done fuck all this season…… We’re quick to judge and as we’ve seen from Bent, it comes back to haunt us. Be patient, I just love watching the team play each week and don’t believe we have to win everything, every year. There’s a lot more to say but you get the idea.

I agree in some aspects YTTC….but I think the Gomes issue is a longstanding one of uselessness. No one is doubting that he can do the miraculous, but he simply cant catch a ball. I think people want to see dependancy from thier keeper (i know i do).

Granted he’s no Joe Hart, but far from old for a keeper when you consider the likes of Schwarzer (39), van der Sar (40), Friedel (40 in 2 weeks), James (40) to name a few.

Not being able to catch a ball, is a problem. No doubt, but there are ways and there is time to correct it. I want dependancy too. He’s rated 6th best EPL goalkeeper (from official EPL site).
drop him to the bench and make him fight for his spot like everyone else.

We did drop him when he was a horror (the first time)…He was benched for 6 weeks or so and came back and was ok for 6 months and I thought he had turned the corner, but sadly not.

A fair indication from Harry:

“I can see the situation. We’ve got lots of players out on loan that we haven’t moved, or haven’t been able to move, in the last couple of years, and they’re still here,” he said.

“There’s people like David Bentley at Birmingham, there’s Robbie [Keane] at West Ham, [Giovani] Dos Santos out in Spain and Jamie O’Hara at Wolves.

“We need to trim the squad a bit to try to get some money in. I’d rather have a smaller squad and maybe try to bring one or two top players in.”

and young blokes:

However, the Spurs boss concedes that he has been unimpressed by certain members of the club’s supposed ‘next generation’.

“I think it answers a lot of questions about these young players, how they do when they go out on loan” he said.

“You find some come back and blame the team they go to because they don’t play football like Barcelona, and that’s what they want to do – ‘they kick the ball too long’ or something else, there’s usually an excuse with it.

“It answers a million questions for me about their attitude and how good they really are. If they go to lower division clubs and can’t play, and can’t get in their team, there’s not a lot of chance that they’re going to come and play at Tottenham.”

and Woodgate:

“It’s a difficult one really, his contract is up at the end of the year,” said Redknapp. “It’s up the chairman but whatever he does or wherever he goes – if he stays here or whatever – he’s got to have a ‘pay as you play’ deal hasn’t he?

“He hasn’t played for two years. You can’t not play for two years and then go and get another contract can you really?

“You’ve got to do a deal with someone, here or wherever, where he gets money if he plays. You can’t be paying someone massive wages if they’re never going to play.

“He’s a great guy, a fantastic fella, and an absolutely top-class player. But he’s got to be fit to play.”

For me, this is some of the most sensible stuff that Twitcher has said in a long long time.

I like the sound of this Tom. Only additions I would make is Leighton Baines and Ben Foster to the wanted list and Wilson Palacios to the “to go” list.

Would be a good squad, all though I am not convinced Ashley Young is any better than a fit Aaron Lennon, and if Jenas isnt even good enough to make our 2nd strign squad then we should sell him. Agree Leighton baines would be a good signing, also Garry Cahill would be a good option to partner Dawson and we could have Gallas & Ledley as back up.

Add Jenas & Gomes to the out list and get a new keeper – please!

Need another left back too. Bale & Rose better in midfield.

Unfortunately Ledley is beyond so another CB too.

I have no idea who The Hulk, Flacco or Wickham are.

Defoe 3rd stringer? How the mighty have fallen. Can’t say I disagree with his demotion though.

Silver administrator

Hulk and Falcao have scored 70 goals between them this season for Porto. Lots of rumours of us being in for them and/or Osvaldo. All 3 would be better than Defoe.

Wickham is the 17 year old lad from Ipswich, highly rated and heavily tipped to come to Spurs.

I like Leighton Baines, but I think we’re looking at £10m+ to sign him, when training Danny Rose to be a fullback would be a better option. Harry said yesterday that Rose is a fullback, which is surprising, but the best time to develop him as a fullback.

I would sell Gomes, but only if we can get a better keeper. A better keeper in my books is not Foster or Green. It is Lloris, de Gea, Neurer, Asenjo or maybe Stekelenburg. And they would all cost £15-30m. Gomes isn’t the biggest problem in our squad, so I think we’re better off spending that amount of money on the strikers.

simothfc nonmember

Foster makes the odd cock up but he’s been in terrific form of late. I actually think Gomes is the biggest problem, because it’s his fuck ups which costs us games – that’s the reality of the position of goalkeeper, unfortunately.

pkatris nonmember

Yes Agreed he’s killed us at some very crucial times but I feel that our consistently impotent strikers have hurt us somewhat more than Coco’s efforts to land a gig with the circus.

This persistent low mood I have had now for well over 2 weeks and it has morphed into a ‘king major depressive disorder heading into the southern winter. 😥 :thud: ➡

But I am liking some these potential targets you guys are throwing up in the potential mix for our next new dawn ‘like a box of chocolates’ beloved club ours :scarf:

Here’s another point. Where the fuck are we going to get this money from to drastically improve our squad? Don’t we lost like 30m in revenue for failing to qualify for the Champions League?

I fear he is another kind of guy who would struggle at a big club. His style seems suited to lower class teams.

To be honest I would not mind cashing on on either Modric or VDV.

I am not sure they can play in the same 4-4-2 lineup. We had to change our 4-4-2 from last season to accommodate VDV. We ended up playing 1 up front and you are never going to score enough goals to win games with that formation.

As good as VDV is, we had to change things from last season which was a winning formula. Yes, we did lose Defoe but that’s no excuse.

As for cash available in the transfer market, I would assume we have at least 30Million in deadwood who could go? The list of names touted about for selling should cover that. Anybody know how much we got back from our jaunt in Europe?

I don’t understand this idea that 4-4-1-1 or 4-5-1/4-3-3 is our problem. It seems to work for Chelsea, Man Utd, Barcelona, Arsenal, Real Madrid and quite a few other teams.

Our problem is not VDV – without him, we’d be in a relegation battle. Our problem is we don’t have a good striker.

As for selling Modric…you’re mad.

I don’t understand why we don’t play VDV and Modric in the centre together, honestly it would be the most creative pairing I have ever seen as a Spurs fan. Don’t want to hear this they don’t have a enough bottle shit because Xaxi and Iniesta do it at Barcelona and their the best team in the world. I personally hate this 4-5-1 crap, we were so much better last year with 4-4-2. Bring in 2 decent strikers. I’m hearing van Nistelrooy – yes old, but if we can get him for the experience and pair him up with quality i.e someone like Benzema it might not be that bad.

Because in a 4-4-2 we’d get ripped to shreds.
Xavi and Iniesta are so damaging because they have one of Mascherano/Busquets/Keita playing behind them, giving them the freedom to go and attack.
Same reason Lampard goes ands scores 12 goals every season, he has Essien/Ramires/Mikel sitting behind him covering his (sizable) arse.

4-5-1 / 4-3-3 can work – with the right players and a big, powerful, competent centre-forward. With the right man up front it could work very well for us.

Kaboul Dawson Gallas Benny
…. Sandro/Hudd
… Modric .. VDV
Lennon ………. Bale

Their whole team is virtually world class. We are one dimensional and lack the domination we had over clubs last year.

Modric does not score enough goals for my liking.

Anyone who wants Modric sold must be moaning for the sake of it. He was twice the player of Fabregas when we drew 3-3 a few weeks ago. Yes his scoring/kicking strength needs some work though.

simothfc nonmember

If Modric had a decent peg on him he would go close to being the best centre midfielder in the world. That’s the only thing he is missing is the ability to score goals and shoot from outside the box like Lampard and Gerrard can, or used to do.

Havent watched many of their games this year but the Spammers forward Demba Ba seems to score all the time and looks pretty impressive, if money for a world class striker is not available he could be a good cheap option.

Might be nice for a change that we look elsewhere beyond than just looking at players from relegated clubs for a change just because they may be cheap – even Parker

:up: Bring Jamie O’Hara back – don’t chase Parker :down:

Reading the spurs discussions on Vital Spurs and spurs in the news – lot of traction about how Parker supports Spurs, wants to stay in London, Harry wants him for 10mill (4yrs). At 30yrs of age, my guess smells like breakdowns and slowing.

It’s a bit scary – yeah Parker is a guy who can score from outside the 18, runs all day …. but really 4 yrs – don’t go there. The time to get Parker was 2 years ago, we should not chase him now.

We should be keeping Modric, Sandro, Palacios, Hudd, VDV, Livermore and O’Hara as the CM options – Daniel Levy please use the 10mill to add to whatever and bring a top,top striker – even through Jenas in as trade the other way.

I have added O’Hara into mix as Jamie can play wide left, left fullback and can excel in CM – yes for wolves but he can hit a corner/free kick, goes all day, no frills, loves tottenham.

My bet is he did not go to wolves then wolves would have gone down.

COYS – and i happy to be in EL next year – i an sure Harry would rotate the squad a lot more.

Agree with you on THAT; he will star when he leaves the Lane; don’t know what he did to Harry to consistently relegate him to the bench; and then bring him on the last 5-10 mins ! Pity he was a player that wanted to stay as well.

Like your line-up Tom and it will be interesting to see what prevails over the summer!

:up: Bring Jamie O’Hara back – don’t chase Parker :down:

We should be keeping Modric, Sandro, Palacios, Hudd, VDV, Livermore and O’Hara as the CM options

I have added O’Hara into mix as Jamie can play wide left, left fullback and can excel in CM – yes for wolves but he can hit a corner/free kick, goes all day, no frills, loves tottenham.

My bet is he did not go to wolves then wolves would have gone down.

COYS – and i happy to be in EL next year – i an sure Harry would rotate the squad a lot more.
:dancingcock: :scarf: :dancingcock:

Sorry Shawry, Usually agree for the most part with you, but I can’t agree about O’Hara watched Wolves the other night, I thought he looked a bit like a Carthorse. I know he has a good left foot. Parker even for a few years can do a job for us.

Surprised most people on here have retained Alnwick he would be first out for me, along with Pletikosa.
I think Cudicini will have his contract extended handy to keep about the place. Sign Top Keeper.

Hutton,O’Hara,Woodgate,Jenas,Dos Santos,Bentley,Keane,Pav should all go IMO

I think Bassong/Corluka/Kranjcar and Defoe might all go, but I would keep them myself.
The first three can play football, Defoe can score goals for us.

I think we need to bring in Top Keeper, 2 Strikers Old/Young, 1 Wide player, 1 Centre back.

Keeper Gomes/ an other, Right back Walker/Kaboul Centre back Dawson/Kaboul an other, Gallas/King,
Left back Ekotto/Rose Wide Lennon/Bale/Pienaar an other,
Centre midfield Modric/Sandro/Palacios/Huddlestone/VDV/Parker/Livermore.
Crouch/Defoe plus 2 good ones 😆

Harry has a habit of getting Premieship proven players, past their best. Then getting a couple of extra years out of them.
I think the time has come at Tottenham, for us to really show our intentions for the future. Some big signings LONG BEFORE the end of the transfer window. No bargain basement deals. :ehhh:
This way we should have a settled team ready to go from the off next season. :dancingcock:
