It seems that everyone on this website has been able to spot Spurs’ attacking deficiencies for months, but they’ve only been highlighted in recent weeks because the likes of Bale and VDV haven’t been scoring the goals that should be coming from the strikers.
We go into tomorrow’s game having not scored in the last four so where’s the next goal coming from? It’s interesting at times to look at the bookmakers’ take on the situation. First goalscorer odds for tomorrow’s match show Crouch and VDV as joint favourites at around 9/2. Defoe and Pav then come in at 5/1 with Bale out at 9/1.
For the pessimists amongst you, no goalscorer can be backed at 7/1, while curiously, Danny Rose is priced at just 14/1 – do they know something we don’t?
Does it need someone like Rose or even Bostock to inject a bit of life into the squad? Are we going to score tomorrow and if so, just where is that elusive goal going to come from?
