Tottenham Talk of the Day.

Posted on September 07, 2014 by Eddie S

Once again it seems that Franco Baldini has upset the Tottenham coach of the day and so his head is once again on the block according to the Mirror, apparently his failure to secure a striker during the transfer window was one of the main reasons with Bony, Remy and the last ditch attempts to sign Welbeck the bone of contention. Of course as usual this is complete rubbish as though an enquirymight have been made for Bony they were over very early in the window allowing time to seek an alternative, if Remy was a true target, which I doubt, he was there for the taking once Liverpool pulled out a full 5 weeks before Chelsea stepped in.

We all know that Welbeck was only made available towards the end of the window and is hardly a front line striker, he hasn’t been used in that position for United or England and at £16m and more than £100k pw was never an option for Tottenham on those terms and with his limited ability, Arsenal are very welcome.

Other concerns for Pochettino centred around Lennon, Chadli and Townsend in their cases it is alleged that Baldini tried to sell against Pochettino’s wishes when the truth is that offers were made for all three but they have remained as important members of the squad.

Mateo Musacchio has been very vocal and the story circulating has been modified to suggest that he snubbed Tottenham, of course the truth has been lost in translation. The statement from the player to the Spanish press was simply to smooth his relationship with the home fans, the deal was on as their coach said he expected it to happen and the player was removed from the main squad, it didn’t happen because Villarreal were not able to extort more money from the deal from the other two owners despite accepting an offer of £17m for the player, wanting 75% of that when you only own 35% is a problem.

Now we start in the lead up to the next transfer window with Townsend and Lennon both expected to leave, what happens between now and then is going to dictate what happens of course, get into the team and perform and they go nowhere, struggle in the setup and anything is possible not just for them but any of the squad.

Incoming is yet again Freddie Guarin, AVB wanted him, Sherwood didn’t but Baldini did and now it is suggested that Pochettino is also an admirer, for two years he has apparently been on the wanted list and for most of that time it appeared his club and the player himself were desperate to part ways, another Leandro Damiao saga.

Our U18’s won the Premier League Champions Cup a tournament involving Real Madrid, Benfica, West Ham, Everton and Liverpool with Kyle Walker-Peters voted Player of the Tournament.

Beyond that in the middle of an International break there is little else to report, we hope our players involved get through this period unscathed but special mention to Erik Lamela and that tremendous goal he scored against the World Champions Germany.
