Results for Diego Forlan

Harry allows Keane to talk with Villa

10:01 am
Sky Sports News "understands that Tottenham Hotspur have given Robbie Keane permission to speak with Aston Villa".

Don't you just love the "understands" bit?

Now that our Harry has finally tied the knot with Daniel, it looks as though our rebuilding "adding one or two new special players" session will commence.

I know I've said this before and it's looked as though I've gotten egg all over my face, but I think exchanging Keane for Carew would be a decent move.

Harry's been ranting on about us deploying a loan striker this coming season. If the Forlan deal doesn't come off, or even if it does, I do believe that big ole' John can do a job for us.

I have prepared myself for the humiliation that is about to follow.....

Harry on Fab

3:03 pm
Luís Fabiano to sign for Tottenham Hotspur, THBN
Our 'Arry is at it yet again, this time stating that Tottenham Hotspur could be interested in signing the Brazil International striker, Luís Fabiano, from Sevilla.

"To be perfectly honest, I haven't sat down to discuss any transfer targets with our chairman Daniel Levy, apart from trying to do a deal with Joe Cole", said Harry Redknapp.

Come on Harry, we know that's not true. A lot of us heard you say that "Diego Forlan is interested in coming to Tottenham". Maybe Harry did that behind Levy's back? Who knows?

I personally can't stand Luís Fabiano. If he's not constantly falling over, he's telling everyone just how good he is. Thanks, but no thanks mate.

We all know Harry Redknapp would love Craig Bellamy, Diego Forlan and Micah Richards at the Lane. Thus far, Harry has told us (live on talkSPORT) that "Craig Bellamy is a player that could do a job for Tottenham", that "Joey Cole is a player that we are in talks with and are pretty close to signing" and that "Manchester City may allow us to speak with Micah Richards".

Diego Forlan, in my honest opinion, is the "special player" that Redknapp desires. Craig Bellamy isn't everyone's cup of tea, but he could do a job for us. I'm a bit baffled at the inclusion of Richards, but then again, I am sure Harry knows what he's doing.

I personally wouldn't mind the following transfer transactions to take place over this summer:

In
Diego Forlan
Craig Bellamy
Micah Richards
Joe Cole

Out
Robbie Keane
Roman Pavlyuchenko
Alan Hutton
Adel Taarabt
Jermaine Jenas

I suppose we'll have to wait and see how the summer pans out. If only Levy would conduct his business promptly so that our squad could settle before the Champion's League Qualifiers....

Spare a though for the brave hosts

10:41 am
bafana bafana, world cup 2010, south africa, tottenham hotspur blog news, thbnI don't know about you, but I did feel sorry for South Africa after seeing them fall out of the World Cup on Tuesday.

Bafana Bafana showed plenty of guts and determination and their singing on arrival to the stadiums and in the tunnel put a smile on my face. But unfortunately that couldn't make up for their lack of quality and they became the first ever host nation to be eliminated at the group stage and fail to be involved in the world cup round of 16 betting.

It was an outcome I fully expected, having tipped Mexico at even money to advance through to the round of 16 and eventually on to the world cup quarter finals betting, but in the end I found myself cheering on the hosts. Their efforts in the opening draw against Mexico made people, including myself take note, but they couldn't continue that against Uruguay, who I can see reaching the semi-finals. I'd also fancy Diego Forlan at Spurs. In my opinion, he is the complete striker. The guy brings others into play, scores and is a winner.

Forlan and his crew beat the South African's 3-0 and that left them in an unenviable position in their last game. Still, they dug in against the 1998 World Cup winners France and triumphed 2-1 in Bloemfontein after giving everything against a shambolic French Pub side.

Unfortunately it wasn't enough for Bafana Bafana, who were eliminated on goal difference with Mexico grabbing the second qualifying berth behind group winners Uruguay.

It was a sad end for the brave hosts, who didn't know whether to conduct a lap of honour after the ref blew the final whistle or drop to their knees in despair.

Memorable World Cups down the years have usually involved the host nation in the latter stages of the tournament. And the only plus point of the hosts' early exit will hopefully be the end of their enthusiastic Vuvuzela blowing, although I kind of doubt it.
