When will the pruning begin?

Prior to AVB’s official arrival, part of the deadwood clearing procedure had already begun with the departures of Croatians Vedran Corluka and Niko Kranjcar. Since then however, transfer activity through the out door has come to a halt, so how much more pruning is there to be done?

Needless to say, when a new manager arrives there is a chance of a clean slate for everyone involved and David Bentley has come out to claim that he has been offered one.

Earlier today, Tom Huddlestone suggested that even some of the established players would need to make their mark on the new coach who simply might not appreciate some of the regular starting XI from last season.

Meanwhile, here are the most worrying comments of all from Heurelho Gomes,

“I’m sure that Villas-Boas’ arrival is going to help me,” said the Brazilian. “He is great and he wants to do the best for Tottenham. I’m sure he will achieve many things here. I hope I could play in his team until 2014.

“I have two more years under contract at Spurs and I intend to fulfil them. But I’m tired of Europe, I have reached my limit here.”

That also leaves players such as Jermaine Jenas, Gio Dos Santos and Sebastian Bassong – all of whom have been considered as surplus for some time now. With the new season just over two weeks away, who will slip through the net and who could genuinely still make a mark at the Lane?

    I think you’ll find the new season is 23 days away. In my book, that’s over three weeks away.

    Lloris is not as good as gomes.

    Lloris is so overrated.

    Jenus will have to go on a free.
    Bentley is probably a free as well.
    Bassong needs some playing time and confidence.
    We will 3 m for him.

    Deforma is only worth 5m now.
    Piennar is ay Goodison already.

    as long as jenas and bentley are gone it’ll be a big sigh of relief for all of us here, nothing will make me more happy than to see those two worthless lumps out that door for the last i hope bloody time.
