What Now ‘Arry?

Harry Redknapp and the Tottenham board need to make some decisions...and they need to do it quickly.

If you didn’t get to check out Tottenham’s first match of the season, you probably have heard about it by now. A 3-0 loss to Manchester United. The Red Devils look on point, and are primed to chase after their 20th top division title. Spurs on the other hand? Well, it has only been one game, but the club look quite different from the one that appeared in Champions League last season.

Not only was Luka Modric absent from the side, but Peter Crouch was too. The club has three capable strikers, but none seem to hit the net. Manager Harry Redknapp needs to make some significant moves before the transfer window closes if the Lilywhites want to compete with Arsenal and Liverpool for fourth (or even fifth) place. It is always difficult to play in Old Trafford, but when you take 20 shots and get 12 on target, something must go in, or there is a significant issue afoot.

It seems likely that Modric is on his way out, and if that is the case, the money needs to be spent immediately. Getting in Emmanuel Adebayor on loan seems like a must, but the club needs to fill the hole Modric will leave behind. Niko Kranjcar doesn’t cut it. He can play off of the bench and be effective, but he isn’t the answer. If Spurs cannot manage this, the blame is on Redknapp’s and Daniel Levy’s shoulders. A total of 12 shots and no goals is unacceptable.

How badly do Spurs fans wish they were able to get that Everton match under their belt now? Seems they may have bigger problems. Surprising to see that with all the problems Arsenal have, they are still the number one club in North London.
