A lot of the talk around the Spurs squad has centred around goalkeepers this week. Firstly, manager Harry Redknapp underlined the fact that he considers Brad Friedel to be the club’s number one while at the same time, Carlo Cudicini has been trusted with the gloves in the Europa League.
That has led to transfer talk involving Heurelho Gomes and it’s thought that the erratic Brazilian could be on his way as early as next January.

It was inevitable therefore that transfer rumours involving new keepers at the Lane would gather momentum and the first name mentioned is that of Manchester United reserve goalie Tomasz Kuszczak.

The 29 year old Polish international has fallen behind David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard at Old Trafford and looks set for a new club before too long. At one point, some decent performances made it seem likely that Kuszczak would be the man to eventually take over from Edwin van der Saar but his brief appearances last season showed a lack of form.

Spurs fans as a whole seem to be happy with Brad Friedel but at 40, he’s not a long term solution. If Gomes does go, then the manager will need to be looking to the future and maybe Tomasz Kuszczak could be the next man between the posts at White Hart Lane.

  1. Friedel has got 2 seasons in him I reckon, so I would buy someone younger than Kuszczak to be Brad’s understudy. Leave it to the scouts to think of a preferred target.

    • for a spurs blog you lot are clueless!! are you all twelve!!

      BEGOVIC!!! We own him (sort of, do your research), we are in court now getting a settlement package for him from Portsmouth!!

      Do nay of you know anything about football!!!!

  2. Talk where? The only talk concerning Kuszczak would be at old trafford wondering how they are going to offload the turkey. Gomes is 10x the keeper Kuszczak will ever be, why make up bullshit?

    • Yep a former championship player is just what a proven champions league challenging team needs!! Lets forget about signing an established proven world class goalkeepers to better those we have and go for a nobody nobody has heard off just on the off chance that spuddo has seen something nobody else has!!!
      Get a grip stop talkin s””t!!!

      • Calm down mate, hes just giving us another option and Swansea just brought him so he hasnt played in the Championship before and even if he has, he is a really good keeper and is Dutch No2! He would have a year of Premier League experience and playing with Swansea means he will be called upon more than usual. I think the Bayern Levekusan keeper, Leno i think his name is, is German No2 and is like 19, made some fantastic saves against Chelsea in the Champions League I watch a lot of the Bundisliga and he is a quality keeper with alot of potential,we should be looking at someone like him!COYS!

        idiot!!!!
        had you heard of Anders Lindegaard(ManU) or maybe Petr Cech b4 they signed. If you say yes then maybe you should be a scout.

        ==just on the off chance that spuddo has seen something nobody else has!!!

        what about sandro, harry redknapp had’nt even seen him play when we signed him.

        Vorm is a good shout. made some great saves b4 they went down at city. I think we will probably scout young and british, cos thats the spurs way at the mo

        COYS!!!!

  3. THIS SITES MOTTO IS FOR IDIOTS!!! TRUE SPURS FAN STAND UP AGAINST THE “”” THAT RUNS THIS SITE!!! YOU ARE A POOR EXCUSE FOR A SPURS FAN!!! LEAVE SARCASM?IRONY AT THE DOOR!! YOU GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM OR NOT!! ROGER SEASON TICKET HOLDER FOR TO MANY TEARS TO>>> MENTION!!! GROW UP!

    • You’e a fucking knobhead Roger. Don’t crucify people for not knowing facts and then claim that Vorm is a championship player when he is Dutch number 2. If this site is so shit, DON’T FUCKING READ IT AND COMMENT TWAT.

  4. Can you imagine the stick Gomes would have got if he gave away that penalty and flapped a shot straight out to the nearest player? As for the 40 year old freebie, 8 goals in his first 2 games – Gomes would have been crucified, yet not a word of criticism from any of the pundits. They seem quite happy now we’re shipping goals. For all his faults he’s still our best keeper.

  5. The reason Ferguson bought a Dega and Lindergard was because the Pole was not good enough and i agree with him. Gomes can come back if he has a settled defense and a player like King at the back who gives him confidantsGes commands his area better than all the metioned keepers except Lindergarrd on his only game so far is on a par with Gomes Friedel is a shot stopper and the same style has a younger Cudicini greta shot stopper lacking against free kicks and crosses we had the early record of goals conceded from headers enough said King is the key to Friedel amd Gomes having good seasons
