Matthew has yet to fill out a bio.
Alright just read your comments with that American who knows nothing about football and i have to say i agree with you on all cases Il follow seeing as your a yid as well.
Alright Matthew. Honestly I'm a little unsure what Tottenham have in mind for Harry Kane. Both he and Jon Obika signed new contracts last year. Obika's is only until 2014, so you would think think that if either of them is to be the team's third or fourth choice up front this season, it might be him. I'm not sure they'd have kept him around just to loan out again. Perhaps for Kane a loan up until Christmas might be ideal, and then Spurs can re-examine the situation. While we'll still waiting on seeing if the club signs on another striker it is all up in the air. I think ideally they'll looking to have a main attack that features a new striker, Bale, Defoe and one of Kane or Obika. It'll be interesting to see how Adebayor looks like a man on the out in preseason, or one fired up to prove his worth.
The full-back situation is an interesting one for sure. Smith has established a good little reputation for himself out on loan, and I'm not Spurs would want to risk losing a player who could turn into something of a gem. What you suggest about him being back up to Walker, Naughton being sold and Assou-Ekotto and Rose being left-backs sounds good on paper. The issue with that is both left-backs will want to be first choice straight away. And I'm not sure yet if Naughton is a project of the manager's who he really thinks can push on, or if last season he was just the next best available option. Villas-Boas is going to have to make someone unhappy. I've not seen much of Zeki Fryers yet and am hoping we'll see him play in preseason. Given his age and the efforts Spurs went to get him, I agree a loan to a Premier League club seems a good option for the club and player (if anyone wants him of course).
I've made no secret of the fact that I rate Tom Carroll very highly. I'm just not sure yet exactly what Villas-Boas thinks of him. I expect him to be kept around again, especially with Huddlestone likely to go. I genuinely believe Carroll is good enough to be a regular starter. But while I think he'll see a reasonable amount of game time, he'll only get a proper shot if someone gets injured. As for Livermore, Villas-Boas seems to like him, and I think he is someone who it would be good to have around as back-up. But he needs football if he is to progress, and I don't think anyone would begrudge him a move if he asked for it. I like what I've seen of Ceballos. Again, a six-month loan seems ideal for him. Give him his first taste of the English game proper, and then all parties can see how things are looking come Christmas time.
Looks like Dan beat me to it. Quality work from him, I personally think Dawson deserves it, Scott Parker second choice.
