Some interesting Tottenham rumours of the day.

Posted on February 13, 2014 by Guest Writer

Until the summer there is little point in dedicating a page to rumour surrounding the club but from time to time a bunch of stories reach us that simply must be commented on. Of course most rumour of late has surrounded the possibility of a new Dutch coach arriving to lead the team next season but one interesting development this week has been the possibility of Tim Sherwood being willing to work with the more experienced Louis Van Gaal so as to take over from him at some time in the future, strangely enough it is a situation that many might feel more comfortable with ensuring continuity for the long term. Until the season is over, we know our fate and then the World cup finishes this will just have to sit on the back burner.

More reports are coming out of Nigeria that Tottenham have beaten Arsenal and Ajax to the signing of a sixteen year old making a name for himself, Musa Yahaya has been likened to a couple of world stars playing for Barcelona which really does him no favours, we are still waiting for baby Drogba to make his mark and how many others likened to great players ever make it though the new Zidane, Taarabt, might yet make it now that he has apparently joined a truly big club, his words not ours, but I wouldn’t be putting a penny on it.

Shortly after Arsenal were linked to the Ajax defender Joel Veltman it is being reported that it is in fact Tottenham that lead the race and have made an initial approach, if the injury problems attributed to Kaboul cannot be resolved and he is not offered a new contract then a new central defender will be required come the summer, a maybe perhaps.

Now on to the most ridiculous piece of journalism of the year so far, apparently David Moyes and United have identified Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen and Moussa Dembele as players to improve them for next season, how about this quote from one of the reports:-

“Vertonghen is a player Man United are confident they can lure away from White Hart Lane and if Tim Sherwood fails to secure a Champions League berth for next term then the chances of signing the intelligent defender will certainly increase.”

Presumably they also believe that Dembele is a possibility for the same reason! Has anybody taken a look at the league table lately? There is little doubt that both players fall into the category of vulnerable without Champions League football and so that alone excludes United quite apart from the fact Levy won’t sell to competitors. The same article also suggests Tottenham are vulnerable because of the huge spend last summer forgetting, or more likely choosing to ignore the profit that the club actually made on transfer dealings. Why let the truth or facts spoil a good story?

One piece of news that reached our ears yesterday was that Andrea Pirlo did apparentlyarrive at Tottenham Lodge in December to speak with the club about a possible switch, obviously Juventus wanted him to stay more than he realised and an extended deal was reached with them.
