Worth the money? No. We'd have to win a lot in our first season and win the league come the second before the move becomes even considered justified. It doesn't quite make business sense but a lot can change in a year and a half. That's my hope anyway. No doubt that he'd be more than welcome at White Hart Lane, maybe not when he visits in two weeks though.

Of course, there's a level of doubt around whether Tom would start anyway but, come the remaining games in this rollercoaster season, who will be the unlucky one to be left out? Sandro's already looking a star in the heart of the midfield with class just oozing off of Luka in every shift he puts in. With Van der vaart also looking in good shape to be one of the signings of the season, 'Arry's left with a nice dilemma (finally) sitting in his hands.
If I was standing in Harry's shoes, I'd be tempted to keep Sandro in the side. You cannot doubt the quality of Thudd but with a boy on such a good run of form, he doesn't deserve to lose his place in the side. I'd also be keen to incorporate a new formation and see how this works (as below)
------------------ Gomes ------------------
-- Charlie --- Gallas --- Daws --- BAE -----
----------------- Sandro --------------------
------------Modric ---- Vdv ---------------
- Lennon -------------------------Bale ---
------------- Pav/Crouch/JD ------------
4-1-2-2-1. With Bale and Lennon hugging the touchline and playing further up the pitch and with Rafa encouraged to slot in between them when we attack, we remain a real threat up top. Although, with 3 players packing the centre of midfield, the system would also prove affective in stopping the opposition play and allowing them no space.
Tommy returning can only be a good thing. We've hardly lacked class in midfield, but numbers were beggining to look short especially after Palacios picked up an injury.

Last year we looked to have all but missed out on 4th spot but then fought back to beat Chelsea, Arsenal and City at their place and since then, the rest is (ccurently becoming) history.
Following Redknapp's comments stating it 'wouldn't be a disaster if we don't make Champions League this year,' how do you feel about it? Disaster is a strong word. I think it would be more of a disappointment if we missed out but it's hardly a disaster. A disaster is relegation.
If we can keep hold of the squad we have currently and possibly bring in a new centre half and forward then we have every chance of success and silverware in the future. City are looking as though they're crumbling lately and no one should write us off just yet.

The quarters and semi's really does give a new meaning to the phrase 'doing it the hard way' but I'm sure deep down, we all know Spurs' path was never leading to a more favourable draw.
No one expects us to triumph. We don't expect to triumph but all I hope is that we give them a game. We've show we're more than capable of challenging and competing with the best. We deserve to be here. We won't go the Arsenal way and sit, we will attack Madrid; that's what I love about Tottenham.
I must shoot off. Your thoughts?

"Money is not everything in life. Nothing could pay for how happy I am to once again be able to wear the shirt of the team closest to my heart.
"I owe everything I have to Sao Paulo. I'm going to sweat for this shirt and I'm going to score many goals. I'm already thinking about coming out of the dressing room tunnel at the Morumbi stadium."
The boy brought very mixed reviews amongst Spurs fans and split us almost as much as Gallas did when he turned up at Spurs lodge. It wouldn't have been the worst move to see how the boy got on in the Premier League and would've hit the back of the net a fair few times.
For €7.6million id have liked to see us take a punt although the chances of him joining were slimmer than Arsenal winning all 4 trophies at the start of the season.
Aguero next on the list?

Regarding Ledley, 'Arry said that our crocked centre half was lucky to be in the squad for Milan and pointed out the fact that the consequences of playing with his injury are finally catching up with him.
“He’s got a problem with his groin and I’m not sure really,” said the Spurs boss. “I took a gamble with him last night, but I don’t know.
“He’s got away with not training all week and playing on Saturday but I think it’s starting to catch up on him now. You can’t keep doing that forever, you have to train.
“It’s crazy that you can not train once all week and then come in on a Saturday and be the best player. Now he’s finding it more difficult - suddenly he’s starting to pick up a few more injures.
“We’re just keeping our fingers crossed for him and Jonathan Woodgate because they’re two fantastic centre-halves. We’re lucky that Michael Dawson has been brilliant and William Gallas has come in for us and done a great job for us as well.”
He further added that Tommy had started "running again" and that Kaboul was "back in training" and both of 'em were close to a return. With a sigh of relief.
With 9 games in April, according to Redknapp, we'll need a full team to pick from. April will define our season.

Maybe this season has come about to quickly for the kid, but the boy is certainly showing promise. He seems a natural in front of goal and, if 'Arry sticks with us for a longer spell than feared, his coaching along with the rest of the backroom staff could prove decisive in setting up a platform for the 17 year old to succeed.
We've been scarce of goals this season and I do believe that it provides the younger forwards atleast half a chance to push themselves into the first team and to be given a chance with the big boys.
