So the transfer window still has two months to run but there has been very little movement as far as departures from White Hart Lane have been concerned. As the players reported back for training, our three main strikers are still together and those that hope at least one will leave, are starting to think that it may stay that way.
Apart from a story that keeps surfacing linking Jermain Defoe to Arsenal, there has been little rumour regarding JD as a whole. In 2009-10, he enjoyed a decent season and his goals played their part in helping us to 4th place. His 5 goals against Wigan simply underlined his potency.
Last year was the complete opposite however and although he did pick up an injury on England duty, he didn’t score until Wolves away at the start of this year. His strikes were pretty spectacular, although that in itself drew criticism from those who suggested he didn’t get enough poacher’s goals.
So does Defoe have it in him to return to the days of 2009-10 or is he simply past his best? Would you sell him or keep him in the squad in the hope of a return to top goal scoring form?
