The five teams we could face. Official.

I'm sure many others have spotted this much earlier than me but, for those that haven't, here's the five teams we could face in the Champions League Qualifier should we be seeded.

The list consists of: Ajax, Braga, Dynamo Kiev, Young Boys and Zenit.

Not the easiest teams to face in my book but I'd feel confident over two legs. We may even run into BMJ in Holland if we face Ajax..

Redknapp hints at transfer target

Well it seems as though that it is not just Craig Bellamy that Spurs want to bring from Manchester down to North London. Redknapp has revealed that he does 'like' Stephen Ireland although a deal is unlikely. Redknapp spoke to the Sunday Mirror:

“I like him, but he is expensive.

“Maybe he’ll be £11m or 12. We wouldn't be in a position to spend that much on him if that’s what they’re wanting.”

Past seasons saw Ireland one of the top performers and real stars of the Manchester City midfield. Ever since, money and injuries have prevented those seasons being reminicent in the 2009/2010 season just gone. Although, in his words, you don't 'become a bad player overnight' and the player could do a job for Spurs whether a starter of a squad player.

If a deal were to materialise would Ireland be a good acquisition for the club?


Redknapp expects 'big season' from Mexican

Harry has spoken about one of the rare star performers of this summers World Cup, Giovani Dos santos, and his future at Tottenham.

"If he gets his head right and works hard he has outstanding ability - but it's up to him.

"I've told him to get fit, stay fit and he could have a big season here. He can be a top player if he wants. It's whether he has the dedication and the desire. He lacked that in the past but hopefully he'll get his head right and show what he can do." In an interview Harry gave to the Mail.

I think the signs are obvious that the kid has the ability to play in the lilywhite again but, as many players these days, it seems an attitude problem is the wall between a chance in the first team.

Is this season 'make or break' for Gio?
