Are we not sexy enough?

What’s wrong with Tottenham? Do we not show enough promise? Granted, the FA Cup thrashing at Fulham was probably enough to turn any player off from joining our side; however, we play sexy football about 90% of the time. Is it really the winning history which appeals to players?

Two major targets of ours have gone off to Liverpool and left us with nothing at the end of a dull and loan-filled January window. Andy Carrol – who some of you might say is my man crush – and Luis “my hand has broken many hearts” Suarez have both opted for the Reds.

Frustrating stuff.

Especially since I am a true believer that we do not have a strike force capable of taking us back into the 4th position. We are now in the 2nd half of the season and scoring goals will matter most… and of course a captain who doesn’t hand opponents two goals in the span of 5 minutes. I love Dawson, but what was that all about?

Equally frustrating.

Then we get news that Charlie Adam, a midfielder, almost signed for us in the dying minutes before the window closed. Another midfielder? Why? For the love of God, we need goal-scorers! Proven goal-scorers! On top of that, Gio has gone off on loan until the end of the season.

Oh well… it is what it is.

Now that the window’s closed, Harry needs to reassure the players that Spurs have the quality to win games and that Wednesday at Blackburn will be the right test to prove it. Everyone in the squad knows they’re not going anywhere, at least for now, so it’s time for them to step up and prove their commitment to the manager, the team and to the fans.

    Good points – which makes me even more mystified why Harry is flying off to watch AC Milan this morning (or so he says to SSN). Surely he should be with our squad giving them some man love and coaching them to bounce back and spank Blackburn!

    I guess he’s going to assess the competition prior to our Champions League fixture. But I totally agree with you, our boys need a good team confidence-building session together. “Man love” included!

    Thanks for visiting RachelVMartin!

    It’s more to do with wages I think.
    I’m not sure that Harry and Daniel’s approach shows enough respect.
    They sniff round like tourists in a bazaar hoping to pick up last minute bargains.

    That’s another thing JimmyG2… this last minute-shopping business has got to stop. All my friends, not Spurs supporters of course, were saying “don’t worry, Tottenham always finds a player at the last minute”. We shouldn’t be known for that nor proud of it. Anyways, we now know what we have for the remainder of the season. We’ll get behind them like we always do and hope to thrash anyone who stands in our way.
