    Are will play DJ, he's just posturing until the IC FA pay the bonuses to his team mates.

    He's their Captain and the only thing close to World Class they have. They'll cave.

    Tough one innit?

    I don't have a scooby who we could go for though.

    Seen BA mentioned a few times and, whilst I think he's a good shout, you just know his knee's going for a Burton as soon as he pulls on the Lillywhite, it's kismet.

    Llorente? Flip a coin.

    Willian? Cat in Hells chance with the scratch they're going to demand. He's not a striker either.

    The Polish bloke? Who knows.

    Harry Kane recall? Or none of the above?

    All I know is that January is NOT a good time to shop for strikers.


    Unless you're in the market for Nicklas Bendtner!

    Quite right Dave. While not as bad as Scumball I still wouldn't want him back at the Lane.

    Reports are that he is a ways behind Jonathan Obika and Christian Cabellos, both of whom have been scoring for fun in the reserves.

    Obika, I believe, is thought very highly of so we may just see a few cameo's from him in the fullness of time, Cabellos too from what I am told. It may be a little while before we see Coulibaly.

    He has been scoring Baz, but he's still regarded as 'development' with the others 'developed' just that little bit further.

    I'm loving that the club are nurturing rather than rushing the talent. What is worrying though is that Alex Inglethorpe is, allegedly, going to Liverpool. He has been instrumental in our Nextgen development. He has been the main man behind the quality that smashed Barca recently.

    Yeah, some Scousers I know have been bleating that they are over the moon at nicking Inglethorpe from us.

    Never really got to the bottom of that Shear. It might have something to do with AVB but I really don't know.

    What many forget is that AVB was brought in to set up the club as a conveyor belt for talent, which is why his title is head coach rather than manager (yes I know I have often referred to him as manager but that is because I'm too lazy to type head coach all the time lol). Arnesen began the set up and the club felt that AVB was the best choice to take that to the next level, something aitch wasn't up to and something he wasn't interested in either.

    I've heard rumours that Liverpool wanted him to run things his way so maybe that's also part of it.

    Whatever the reason it is a shame because he appears to have produced some real gems through the nextgen.

    Having said that, AVB has been involved in the Continental talent production machine for some years now. At worst he will continue Inglethorpe's work, at best he will improve on it.

    Nations Cup 2013: Togo plead for Adebayor to play


    Togo manager Didier Six has pledged to do everything he can to persuade Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor to play at next month's Africa Cup of Nations.

    The 28-year-old recently put his international career on hold because of a dispute with the Togolese federation over match bonuses.

    But Six said: "I am doing everything I can to get him to come back to us.

    "He's a world-class player and the Togo national team captain. He is very important to the group."

    He added: "I will put all my strength to get him to change his mind but he has the last word.
    "This is about more than just him sending a warning to ensure Togolese football moves forward."

    Adebayor's public relations officer Amedodji Blaise said earlier this month that the striker was "suspending" his international career and would not play at the tournament in South Africa, which takes place between 19 January and 10 February.

    While that decision was a blow to Togo, the news was of benefit to Tottenham, who do not want to lose Adebayor at a crucial stage of the English Premier League season.

    Should Togo be successful in changing Adebayor's mind, the player could miss the London club's matches against QPR, Manchester United, Norwich, West Brom and Newcastle,

    Togo are at the Nations Cup for the first time since withdrawing from the 2010 tournament in Angola after a terrorist attack on their team bus.

    Adebayor retired from the national team after that attack but agreed to return last year and helped the Hawks qualify for South Africa 2013.

    "It's clear that we will need Adebayor but don't forget we qualified without him during one of the play-off matches," added Six.

    I agree Lought. The only thing he's interested is money. He only came to us because in the end City agreed to pay half his salary, he would have gone anywhere that paid his wages.
    Most players represent their countries for nothing, England certainly don't pay them.

    I wouldn't mind but he's not that great and he's been poor so far this season.

    Where are your principles Lought? He left us deep in the sh*t after 20 odd thousand of us begged him to stay at the pre season friendly, I'd rather go for Llorente, Idont want anyone at the club I love that treated us, the fans so badly.

    Nations Cup 2013: Tottenham wait for Adebayor decision

    Tottenham remain unsure whether striker Emmanuel Adebayor will decide to link up with his country Togo to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.

    If the 28-year-old plays in the competition in South Africa, which starts on 19 January, he could miss five games for the Premier League side.

    Adebayor helped Spurs to a 3-1 win against Reading on Tuesday and his absence would be a big blow to Spurs.

    But boss Andre Villas-Boas said: "If he wants to go, we respect that."

    Adebayor recently put his international career on hold because of a dispute with the Togolese federation over match bonuses.

    And it was widely believed that the former Manchester City player would stay at White Hart Lane rather than link up with his countrymen.

    But Togo manager Didier Six has made a plea for him to change his mind and it now seems there is a chance that could happen.

    After Tottenham's victory on Tuesday, in which Adebayor scored, Villas-Boas admitted: "It's a vulnerable situation, anything can happen," he said. "I've told you the player can still go, I understand it is still a possibility.

    "It was always his choice, I'm not going to put pressure on him. We've left it to [the] player to decide."
