News of Hutton's departure had quickly reached the players4-2-3-1: Friedel; Walker, Dawson, Gallas,
Assou Ekotto; Parker/Huddlestone, Modric; Lennon, van der Vaart, Bale; Adebayor. Has a nice ring to
it, does it not?
The transfer window didn't so much slam shut as it did gently but firmly close last night and Spurs
have been left, once again, to rue a couple of deals that got away.
