Spurs factor could make QPR tough for Arsenal

Just Arsenal at related • 0 views

Lukasz Fabianski has been an Arsenal player long enough to know all about the bitter rivalry between the Gunners and Tottenham Hotspur. The fact that the spuds have been pushing for a top four finish and Champions League football recently, while Arsene Wenger has been struggling to keep Arsenal there with very little money, has made this all the more tasty recently.

The window for loans to Championship sides opens at the weekend and it is being widely suggested that Spurs will look at a deal that takes Jermaine Jenas away from the club for the rest of the season.

JJ was expected to join Sunderland on deadline day but with the move falling through, it was far too late to make an alternative arrangement.

This was always going to be a busy few days for Tottenham after the sale of Luka Modric on Monday and it looks as if the first post-Luka deal will bring Fulham's Moussa Dembele to White Hart Lane. Nothing has been confirmed as yet but with the two clubs agreeing a fee last night it could only be a matter of time.

Spurs 2-0 pre-season loss to Valencia on Thursday night is not a sign that Spurs should panic, but it did show the weaknesses currently prevalent in the Spurs squad and showed the need to bring in reinforcements.

Jermaine ‘JJ' Jenas and Jake Livermore in midfield struggled to both keep possession and press the opposition while the defensive high line loved like a childhood teddy bear by Andre Villas-Boas was at fault for the second of the Valencia goals.

Throughout last summer, we ran a series of articles which we called ‘The Deadwood Files'. As the title might suggest, we considered some of the fringe players at the time – Bentley, Bassong, Jenas etc – and argued as to whether or not they had a future at Tottenham.

We were going to run that again this year but it seemed a little pointless because most of those names are still here – for now at least.

The clearout begins?

The Daily Express this morning leads with the headline that Jermaine Jenas can leave White Hart Lane this summer but it goes on to name a host of players that the newspaper believes are surplus to requirements.

JJ was loaned out to Aston Villa at the beginning of 2011-12 but after optimism over a possible permanent deal to the Midlands club, injury wrecked the player's move and he returned to the Lane shortly afterwards.

Wayne Rooney will be able to play in group stage of Euro 2012 after all.

Accompanied by England head coach Fabio Capello, Rooney had his three-game ban reduced to two after a successful appeal to UEFA on Thursday. The decision to shorten Rooney's ban, which came as a result of Rooney receiving a red card against Montenegro in a Euro qualifier last month, means he will be eligible to play in England's final group match against Ukraine.

The announcement on Tottenham's official club website reads,

‘Jermaine Jenas has undergone surgery to his left Achilles tendon and is likely to miss the rest of the season, but should return for the start of pre-season.

I could write any old nonsense in this first bit, given the sheer sauciness of the post's meat. What do you mean it's all nonsense anyway? Well. I am shocked. Shocked and appalled. Okay, you've got a point. But if you can ignore that for a second and the rather delicious prize we've got on offer, we'll first try and wade through some of the Hotspur related news that might've unearthed itself over the last day or so.

Benny was confused. Had Rafa not seen how good his wife looks!?It's not so much a changing of the tide anymore - the dam has been broken. For the two North London clubs, the direction of the rivalry has largely been one way over the past 15 or so years but no longer. Spurs beat Arsenal 2-1 on a blazing hot Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane and they didn't do it by raising their game and Arsenal lowering theirs: this Spurs display was worse than it has been in recent weeks and Arsenal rolled out their best work in the same amount of time.

Everton Struggle To Put Together 25-Man Squad

Everton's troubles continue as they were only able to name 18 players, seven short of the maximum, in their official squad submitted to the Premier League.

However, that 18 does not include Under-21 players, so the likes of Ross Barkley do not feature but are still eligible to play as clubs can use an unlimited number of younger-age players.

If you go to the club's squad page and have a look, there's not really all that much to worry about.

The defence is still pretty stacked.

Departures could add to a busy deadline day

TottenhamBlog.com at related • 0 views

As we'd already seen with the proposed sale of Michael Dawson to QPR, it seems that few players are safe from AVB's clearout of Harry's men but just who will escape the deadline day cull?

Since the transfer window re-opened in June, the club has waved goodbye to Vedran Corluka, Steven Pienaar, Niko Kranjcar and Sebastien Bassong.

Does AVB see a future for this Spurs outcast?

It's being whispered quietly at the moment but there are stories suggesting that Jermaine Jenas may well be part of Andre Villas-Boas' plans for the start of the season. At present, there appears to be no more substance to this but with everyone starting with a clean slate, there's every chance that JJ could slip through.

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.

Does losing Hudd and Dawson make any sense?

Any new coach coming into a club will, sooner or later, make his mind up about the existing squad but some of the transfer rumours coming out of White Hart Lane will have surprised Spurs supporters.

While the club continues to offload the deadwood with the sale of Sebastien Bassong to Norwich, there are claims that AVB is looking to clear out five more players but those names include Tom Huddlestone and Michael Dawson.

What would you change?

The soundtrack to Harry Redknapp's press conference after the QPR game at the weekend was one of defensive comments in relation to the squad. Harry was adamant that he had done the right thing in letting the likes of Bassong, Corluka and Pienaar go out on loan despite the lack of cover.

Redknapp also went on to suggest that he has a lack of alternatives at the club but is that strictly the case?

Fortunately for these managers, not all is lost when they fail to agree a fee for someone they really want to bring to their clubs.

Jermaine Jenas is out for the season, and with the club apparently on the hook for his wages the less said about that the better.

One of the bigger talking points has been the return of Ashley Young. James Milner showed class by not celebrating at Eastlands recently, expect Ashley Young to do exactly the same today, but preferably because he hasn't scored.

Either way, it's a tough game ahead and I suspect there will be a bigger interest in the manner we McLeish approaches the game than any real expectation in getting much from it.

As we saw on Saturday, Harry's transfer dealings have made first team selection just that little bit easier and after several departures from the Lane at the end of August, the temptation to slot in Jenas or Crouch has now been removed.

Injuries also played their part in the final line up against Wolves with Sandro, VDV, Dawson and Pienaar ruled out while the likes of Bassong, Corluka and Pavlyuchenko were left out for other reasons.
