It's official Spurs want Kjaer and Cavani

Developments seemed to take a huge plunge into Daniel Levy's pockets as Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini claimed Spurs have bid €35m (£29m) for Simon Kjaer and Edinson Cavani.

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini: "Tottenham have bid €35m, an offer we cannot refuse, seeing as the two players have both said they want to leave," Zamparini told Sky Italia television.

"We will reinvest the money for these players," assured Zamparini. "The midfield is my biggest concern, whereas in defence and attack we are fairly covered."

In all honesty I have only seen glimpses of Simon Kjaer although I did feel the centre back looked strong and could be reliable at the heart of our back four. Edinson Cavani I've never seen play. But with competition from the likes of the teams mentioned it seems as though it would be a real coup if we pulled this move on.

Do you feel these players would move Tottenham forward next season?

Adel Taarabt rant

At first I felt this player had thorough potential, and, as time has continued by I stand by this opinion. But one of the many things Adel Taarabt is not is certainly a world beater, but his arrogance and with an ego bigger than the Premier League, he certainly feels as though he can speak like one.

Once again he has come out and stated what we have heard for atleast the last year that he wants to leave White Hart Lane, without making it so obvious this time. I think we've all dimised to the point that we no longer care what happens to Adel. Are we suppose to consider this a huge loss? He acts as though he's on top of his game and could cut it in any side, stating that he warrants a move to 'Barcelona or Real Madrid'. Somehow I don't see Ronaldo being left on the bench in place of him.

He gave a few good performances in the Championship for QPR but, like Hossam Gahly, his attitude is one that makes such a talent a waste. A pure waste. The sooner he leaves the Lane the better. I'm tired of hearing his 'big man' speak. He's not the player he thinks he is and he needs that drilling into his brain.
He needs a good kick up the arse.

Goodbye Adel. Let's hope we never have to hear of your name again.

Iaquinta, Pav or Keane?

Speculation took a rather unexpected twist as old media favourite Vincenzo Iaquinta looked to take a large step forward into joining us. The 30 year old's agent stated he expects to see Vin playing at Spurs next year as Harry's wheelin' and dealin' looks to see us pick up the Juve man for around 5 million quid.

But surely, should we capture the Italian then this is likely to spell the end for atleast one of Pav or Keane. So who would you rather keep hold off if given the dilemma facing Harry?

Iaquinta's Juve record last season: 18 appearances scoring 6 goals. Not a world-class goal scoring record although I am told that this bloke is a team player and maybe this could prove beneficial in our debut Champions League season awaiting us next year.

Pav's record last season: 24 appearances scoring 10 goals. Although starting the season very much on the fringes of the first team, Pav broke into the team around late February time and his goals really helped propel us to achieving fourth spot. Possibly one we should keep our hands on.

Keane's record last season: Keane's record at Spurs saw him make 25 appearances scoring 9 goals before being loaned out to Celtic in January where he enjoyed a blinding season scoring 14 goals in 16 appearances. Although, I think any Championship side would give Celtic a good game.

So, if given the choice, which player would you want playing in the lillywhite next season?

Pav's song for next season

I'm sure this 'issue' has been addressed before but, to put bluntly, we are not the most creative fans when it comes to invigorating new songs for our players. For Pav, we sound our appreciation with the 'Super Pav' chant, it's understandable and makes sense although, if i'm honest, a little dull and I feel there is much more potential for him.

Anyway, I was having one of those YouTube browsing moments, jumping from one video to the next despite not being a regular user of the website. But, I came across one video and, in the comment box, one user named 'MrYiddojoe' wrote in the following:

To the tune of 'The animals went in 2 by 2'

"He came to London from Spartak Moscow, Moscow!!
To play for Tottenham in attack yiddo, yiddo!!
He scores the goals and Tottenham win
And who the fuck is Arshavin
'Cos Pav-ly-uchenko's Tottenham's number 9"

Now I know opinion can be very split on an issue such as this but I feel that this particular chant is very innovative and makes it more appealing with the little dig at Arshavin.

Should Pav stay this summer I think it would be great if we could try and get this down White Hart Lane and be regularly sung every week. A great song for a player that fully deserves it.

What do you think?
