A tricky period for Tottenham as they have a tough of fixtures and managerial issues to contend with. The AVB situation seems like groundhog day after his career at Chelsea went exactly the same way. Perhaps it comes down to the exuberance of youth, but AVB always seems to lower himself to ridiculous scraps, with people he should be ignoring.
To be side-tracked by a few journalists when you have such a big club to run seems very petty indeed. The great managers through history couldn’t give a monkeys about what the press have to say.
On the field, Tottenham still aren’t scoring enough goals. As we all know it is extremely difficult to sign top players in the January transfer window. There are notable exceptions, of course, such as the £50 million at Chelsea shelled out for Fernando Torres. The Guardian today suggests that Tottenham might go all out for a striker in January.
The exceptional Guiseppe Rossi has been linked with a big move to North London over the last few days and The Guardian today says:
….the former Manchester United youngster is currently banging them in for Fiorentina after recovering from two cruciate knee ligament injuries in quick succession and scored the deciding goal in his side’s 4-3 Serie A win over Verona on Monday night. A fee of £30m has been mentioned…
We believe that the only reason this guy hasn’t become a household name in world football is because of those injuries. He was an excellent player Manchester United and it was very strange they got rid of him. Perhaps Fergie thought he was too small for The Premier League.
Rossi has fantastic technique and a wonderful sense of where the goal is. He bangs them in from all angles and has scored goals where ever he’s played – Spain, Italy and England have all seen his brilliance.
Tottenham need strikers and this one is a feasible option if the money is right. Let’s see him in action.
