There have been more than just a few positives to come out of this 2010-11 season for Spurs and one of the most obvious of those is the emergence of Sandro as a top class player. Looking a little lost in his early appearances, the Brazilian was transformed in the second half of the season, drawing praise from all around him.
After the Man City game in midweek, Harry Redknapp said: “Sandro is emerging as a top player.
“He’s come into the English game and his performance against City’s strong midfield was excellent.”
Meanwhile, skipper Michael Dawson has this to say on the club website: “Sandro’s performances in the Champions League were great and he certainly makes our job a lot easier.”
Sandro’s form has led any people to suggest that Harry Redknapp will change his transfer policy and not go back in for Charlie Adam or follow up his interest in Scott Parker. With Niko Kranjcar certain to leave and Jenas and Palacios as two possible followers, a crowded midfield could become a little thin.
Kranjcar’s departure is almost a given, but should we look to retain Wilson and JJ as back up? While we all love Sandro and are delighted to see his emergence, should Adam or Parker still be brought into the squad or could we even promote from within for once?
