Big Investment?

January could be a big month for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as late weekend reports suggest that big name departures could be the catalyst for the influx of new blood.

The Mirror states that Tottenham director of football Franco:

Baldini is attempting to off-load Emmanuel Adebayor, Jan Vertonghen, Aaron Lennon and Mousa Dembele

According to the source this will clear the decks for the a new spine of a side consisting of some excellent purchases.

Morgan Schneiderlin

Nothing new in this link. But with Arsenal keen on Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko, according to substantial reports, then Tottenham may head the queue for the brilliant Frenchman. At 25 there is no question that Schneiderlin would improve the midfield. Coming into his prime.

Jay Rodriguez

Another Saint. Pochettino has regularly been linked with this lad but he still hasn’t played a game for the club since serious injury last season and it may well be too early in his recovery o take a punt in January.

Raul Albiol

More quality and consistency is needed at the back and the latest target is said to be Albiol. Capped 50 times by Spain, Albiol currently plays for Napoli after a long stint with Real Madrid. At 29 he’s safe as houses but may take time to adapt from the stark tempo change between the game in Italy and England.

Let’s see Albiol in action. Tottenham fans: keen?

    They are completely ruining the club. Aron Lennon out? They should sell all the players Baldini brought in, and get rid of Baldini as well before the club ends up in Championship. And please sell the club to some non-jews who knows the football business, Levy out, and Pochettino please.

      What an idiot you are. Take a perfectly good point and ruin your credibility with the daft racist bollocks you spewed at the end. You may not like the clubs Jewish connection, but we’re not ‘The Yids,’ for nothing. I don’t hear people screaming get Sheikh Mansour (or whatever his name is to clear off at Man City because he may not be Jewish but he is a Semite, or The Chelski owner Roman Abramovich who is a Jew but they’re top of the league.
      Both Jewish and non Jewish Spurs fans are proud of our long History and close involvement with all the local communities, ethnic or otherwise, One thing is a known fact though. Daniel Levy for all his faults is apparently one heck of a feared business negotiator in the game of international football high finance, getting a WORLD RECORD FEE for Gareth Bale (That he was def not worth) so he clearly has a job to do and a vital place at the club, but should imo be limited to acting only in concert with former professionals advising him on matters concerning players and the day to day running of the team and lets keep his experience the factor in deciding that and not his religion.
