When asked about possible transfers before tomorrow’s deadline day, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was typically vague,

“I can’t see an awful lot happening,” Harry said.

“I will probably watch a game on Sunday but not with a real eye on anyone, although I’m not going to tell you which match.”

Those are the sort of comments we’ve come to expect and a year ago we probably would have dismissed them completely. However, as we all know, nothing happened on deadline day 2011 other than an aborted move for Charlie Adam so can we look forward to another barren day?

Reports today have linked the club with Andy Carroll and a bid of £10m that the story refers to as ‘cheeky’. That would seem unlikely for a number of reasons but the other link is with Norwich City’s Steve Morison.

The former Northampton and Stevenage man has taken to life in the Premiership reasonably well with nine goals in 23 games for the Canaries thus far. That would lead some pundits to suggest that he could be even more prolific at another club while some Spurs fans may see him as the next Grzegorz Rasiak.

Another story links the club to Brazilian under 20 captain Bruno Uvini who is a 20 year old central defender playing for Sao Paulo.

Overall, is Harry bluffing or is tomorrow going to be another quiet day at Spurs Lodge?



  1. might get a panic loan deal in but cant see us signing someone which is another wasted opportunity. playing watford with no wingers should have shown harry that cover there is a priority. we’ll end up trying to hang onto 3rd now instead of fighting for 2nd/1st

  2. I can see a few moves tomorrow more out than in Piennar and Bassong to QPR and Gio to Spain Pav out also either to Russia or mid table Prem team. I then aspect us to bring in Hoilett maybe Samba and a Striker from Italy/Spain or Germany prob on loan to the end of the season.

  3. No-one is coming in until some-one goes out basically.
    No doubt they have targets, but the type of players Spurs need, the money they’d be willing to spend AND the absurd midseason inflations. . .can’t see anything happening either.
    They are in a catch 22.
    No point selling average players and buying more average players.

  4. A bit of clear thinking, it’s boring and hardly newsworthy, but the simple fact of the matter is we’ve got players still draining the club’s resources and are not contributing to our recent upsurge. We needed a clear-out in August, but it was only half the job and more pruning is required before additional players, who will improve the team, who are the right price and who are available can be bought in. We made 500k profit, not millions and the single largest drain is players wages. Come the end of May, we’ll have Jenas and Bentley back in the fold once again, along with Pav, GDS,Bassong and a few others, we’re still overloaded with very average players.

  5. petr,what makes you think bruno has signed for genoa? nothing on there website or anyone for that matter? where did you get info from?

    I think we will buy a couple of players tommorow, but nothing special. maybe Samba and Hoillett
