The Void That Needs Filling

Now, i'll start this off by saying not at any point have i produced anything negative about Dempsey or Demebele...ok, i wasn't massively convinced by Dempsey's arrival to begin with as this clear goal machine was destined to solve our goal drought problems...right? Needless to say though he's come good within my books, scoring us some damn important goals in both the Premiership as well as the Europa League; where he had 3 goals in total swiped away for offside's...2 of which i'd highly dispute.
Moussa Dembele on the other hand has been a fantastic asset within midfield from day dot; partnering Sandro in what could arguably be one of the strongest midfield duo's in the Premier League for a long time? although Moussa absolutely needs to understand that he is allowed to shoot and not feel like a naughty school boy when he does.

My point in this post being is that I don't believe the void has been filled in what we lost between both Luka 'scarecrow rat face boy' Modric and Rafael 'Punched his wife!? WHY!?' Van Der Vaart and bringing in Fulhams best offers. Because of that i do believe is where the lack of trigger pulling up top stems from, no one to load the bullets? Makes you wonder what happened to Adebayors goal tally doesn't it. Lack of ambition from Daniel Levy in my opinion.

Gareth Bales comfort in his free role, gifted to him like an early Christmas present from AVB, isn't exactly the play making that we're after. You can't fault the quality in his own natural independent goal scoring; to which has carried us massively in an injury plagued team but it hasn't benefited the key players (strikers) apart from Bale him self and the team, Tottenham Hotspur, as a whole. Racking up 25 goals to his name this season and undoubtedly keeping us in the top 4 race. But could you imagine how much higher our points and goal tally would be this season if we had somebody with the flare and vision of both Modric and Van Der Varrt in one player? aside from Rafa's paper thin hamstrings and Modric's boat race, that could make Mother Teresa question faith as a whole, surely we'd be sitting pretty in 3rd...hell, maybe even 2nd?
So at the age of 26, two seasons of transfer speculation, and allegedly being practically on our door step last summer Joao Moutinho surely has to be TRANSFER TARGET #1? might i add he's also racked up 14 assists this season at Porto, the most in any one season of his career!

Now, if all this transfer speculation was true about how close we were to signing him, let alone AVB rubbing shoulders rather well with him, then what's the problem? Daniel Levy needs to start showing ambition in the future of this club and finishing this transfer off and getting the man we set out for; that would be perfect. Day 1, Moutinho in a Spurs shirt BOOM! next up Leandro Damiao, Christian Benteke?

  1. I personally feel our strikers are good enough , but they are just starved of service . So a playmaker should be top priority in the summer . Another area of concern , is the wings ,and Aaron Lennon is not getting any younger . So would love to see Tom Ince in a Spurs shirt next season
