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.
