There’s a fine line between trying to analyse your team to spot any perceived weaknesses and just having a general moan. In an attempt to stay on the right side of that line, there is some concern over certain personnel right now but will Spurs be brave enough to change that when the January transfer window opens?
One of the names you just can’t avoid at the moment is Clint Dempsey. The American came to us at the end of August with a reputation for scoring important goals and none would have been more welcome than that third and vital strike at Old Trafford.
Since then however, accusations of the player going missing from games and generally subdued performances have surfaced and are starting to gather momentum.
The other concern for many Spurs fans is Gylfi Sigurdsson: The Icelander attracted attention by scoring seven times in nineteen games for Swansea last season – including one against us during our 3-1 win at White Hart Lane.
Gylfi’s job isn’t to score goals so two strikes in cup matches out of fourteen overall appearances isn’t a major problem but at this point, he looks to be no more than a fringe squad member.
Then of course there’s Hugo Lloris which is a whole new story…
Selling any of these players on might seem unlikely – even it’s just for financial reasons. Other clubs don’t tend to fight too hard over anyone sold on by their club after five months. However, if they are no more than squad men, will AVB make a brave decision and look to promote the likes of Iago Falque and Tom Carroll in their – or at least Gylfi’s place?
What’s your view? Is it time to cut our losses on anyone when that window opens?
