  1. Every Spurs fan and his dog must have put together a wish list of players to join the club next season. So here is my humble opinion of who should become a Spur, is as follow:-
    Foster-GK ManU,
    Richards – RB Man C,
    Cahill – CB Bolton,
    Coates – CB Newell Old Boys,
    Baines – LB Everton
    Wijnaldum – RW Feyenoord,
    Carrick – DM Man U,
    Sandro – DM Internacional,
    Cole or Van der Vaart,
    Turan – LW Galatasary,
    Dzelo – St Wolfsburg
    Dembele – St AZ Alkmaar

    Cudicini, Alnwick, Hutton, Woodgate, Dervitte, Bentley, Jenas, O’Hara, Dos Santos, Taarabt, Keane, Pavlyuchenko,.

    With the money raised from the players being transferred out, and any additional kitty given to Harry for new players, perhaps my choices may really happen, or not!

  2. You are crackers to want that much change, and half those on our list are no better than what we already have. Foster will not come to sit on our bench. Corluka and Kaboul have right back sewn up. Baines is no more solid than the much improved Benoit. Gary Cahill could be an excellent shout though, and Dzeko would add potency up front. Agree it’s time to let Woodgate, Keane and Jenas go, Hutton to Sunderland permanently and cut some dead wood like Dervitte, Taarabt, Dos Santos who will never make it. But Pav has to stay, and some of the others can be useful squad players. Don’t change too much Harry, just a few really top notch signings is what the squad needs.

  3. It’s not that much of a change with Gomes, Corluka, Dawson, Kaboull, King, Bassong, BAE, Lennon, Palacios, Hudd, Modric,Kranjcar, Bale, Rose, Defoe, Crouch & Gudjohnson still in place. Together with an excellent array of youngsters still to break into the squad. The additions will firm up a squad that may have to play nearly sixty fixtures next season.

  4. “Not that much of a change”? You want to axe 12 players, that’s nearly half the squad, and bring in 12 new players! Dream on
