One Man Band?

One man band! one player team! Without Bale we are nothing!  These are the sort of accusations being levelled at the current Tottenham side but is it true? Would Spurs suffer if Bale was not in the side. Would our season end if he was to get injured? Could we cope without him? Continue reading

So it didn’t snow – Deadline day thoughts

Went to sleep last night and it was like hoping for snow. Hoped to wake up to find Daniel had done it again and there was a crisp, clean layer of new striker outside my window.
The view is as last night.
