Harry must have O'Neill on speed dial as yet again we are after another Villa player. This time it is front man John Carew, yet, once again I do feel a touch of Deja vu is at hand. I remember blogging on the 'speculation' that we were after the Villa hit man although this time the reports have been confirmed. On the other hand, it may come as a surprise to you the fact that Villa have stated they will reject any approach from ourselves; I believe our 'dreams WILL fade and die' after hearing this, well, certainly Redknapps' anyway.
This summer has proved a tough one and probably our most un-successful. Harry has failed to snap up any transfer targets in those of Santa Cruz, Barry, Carew, Young, Van Nistelrooy.. and so on, I'm not here to summarise the speculation. Consequently, Spurs have had to lower their transfer optimism and so therefore have been looking at Man. City's Richard Dunne- the defender of the team that couldn't stop conceding last season. Dunne would prove satisfactory cover for the formidable Woodgate and King but the bench would always prove to be his best position. Therefore, this could prove a shrewd signing and, if cheap, one that I'd be happy for.
So on that basis, I do hope that we continue our pursuit of both Carew and Young as I feel these are two players that would propel us to the next level- a solid mid-table finish. Furthermore, should we sign Richard Dunne from Citeh and he does only play a bit-part role for the club, I'd be generally satisfied. A start for the lad every week would just inhibit our Redknapp revolution and so should NOT happen.
On a last note, Adios Zokora, no player could be great and awful at any one time like you were in any one season.
