It looks likely to be all change between the posts for next season with both Carlo Cudicini and Stipe Pletikosa set to leave the club in the summer.
Pletikosa was signed on a season long loan from Spartak Moscow and maybe everyone thought that Carlo wouldn’t recover quite so well as he has from his motorbike accident. In the end, Stipe played just one game against Arsenal in the Carling Cup, but at least it’s a longer career Spurs career than Cesar Sanchez!
Speaking in the press, he had this to say about his future: “If the coach promises to give me a chance, perhaps there will be a point in staying. I made the wrong decision to come here.’ ”
The departures could see Ben Alnwick promoted back to number three, with the big question being whether Gomes will be our number one or number two ‘keeper next season. As for Pletikosa, he has a good pedrigree even though he seems to have lost form at Spartak. With Gomes’ claim to the jersey looking about as secure as his hold on Lampard’s free kick, should we have given Stipe a chance?
