"It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory." Bill Nicholson. SPURS

Spurs busy as deadline approaches.

Various ITKs on COYS and FTL have gone into near meltdown. Silence had struck the ITK scene for around a week which did not look to promising as the transfer window is due to close on Monday. Failure to bring in a striker or two would be disastrous for the season ahead. Serious questions would then be asked about the failure to replace Robbie Keane and why the Berbatov situation was allowed to continue for so long.

Hopefully new signings will be made in the coming days. The Russian striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is now just waiting for a visa so he can sign his contract and get the work permit formalities completed. Corluka is still on his way from Manchester City to provide much needed cover for King and also at right back, especially as Hutton is apparently now out for 2 months. Another striker is apparently also on the cards but it isn't Huntelaar who is not coming.

The news on Velso has gone quiet so the defensive midfielder we all crave does not look like it is going to happen.

Finally Arshavin is probable. However I fail to see the need for another attacking midfielder. Going into the season with just two strikers is still not the recipe for success and I suspect we shall have to see another toothless display from the Spurs midfield and Bent before any of these signings are confirmed.
