Just like the first sighting of a migrating swallow, it just doesn’t seem like summer until Spurs are linked with a move for West Ham’s Robert Green. It’s not entirely clear where the story first emerged from this time although I picked it up from the unlikely source of the Epping Forest Guardian.
Green’s contract at Upton Park is up and it’s suggested that he will only renew it if the Hammers are promoted. If they aren’t, Spurs could move in – is that reason enough to want West Ham back in the EPL?
Several years ago however, Tottenham offered Paul Robinson a lifeline when his Leeds team were relegated but could they do so again after Blackburn’s drop was confirmed? Robbo looked the most dejected of a sorry set of Rovers players and while he’s known to be happy in the North West, will he be happy enough to see out the rest of his career in the Championship?
