Tottenham Hotspur has always been good at linking themselves with hundreds of players. When I was at school they were linked with Rivaldo and Guardiola and when they signed Edgar Davids I suddenly started believing that every rumour was an actual possibility – if only that had been the case this January. The signings of Yago Falque, Louis Saha and Ryan Nelsen brought hardly set the football world alight, but Harry Redknapp is renowned for making shrewd moves and we will be hoping that he has pulled yet another rabbit out of the hat with these deals.
Here I have compiled a team based entirely on linked players, and it’s quite an eleven which at least shows that they’re chasing good players, unfortunately, it really is chasing.
In a way this list is born out of frustration; a month of rumours has left us with very little in a way of progress but let’s just hope that Messrs Saha and Nelsen will give us enough to get over the line. I have adopted a 3-5-2 formation and to be fair it is a decent team in its own right.
