Spurs interested in Man Utd's Foster!!!

Spurs have been linked with numerous goalkeepers over the past year with Ben Foster just the latest in a long line, however after the tragic motorbike accident involving Carlo Cudicini it now looks more likely that Spurs will make a move for a goalkeeper in January.

Foster started the season as number 1 for Man Utd, due to the injury to Edwin van der Sar, but has now finds himself 3rd in the pecking order due to a number of mistakes. This won't make him first choice with the Spurs fans with resemblances to Paul Robinson very much still fresh in the mind.

Foster preformed very well when he was on loan at Watford and any time he was asked to deputise and he has made 4 appearances for England, but his demotion from no1 to 3rd choice at United is likely to rule him out of the World Cup next year unless he gets a move.

The fortunes of Foster do seem to resemble those of Robinson in some ways where he was very highly regarded but a number of mistakes saw him losing both his spot in the Spurs team and the England team. Robinson has since regrouped and looks back at his best for Blackburn and I don't doubt Foster will bounce back but at the moment that looks unlikely to be at Man Utd and I am not so sure Spurs would be the best move for him.

Spurs have started this season very well and obviously want to keep the momentum going, bringing in a goalkeeper who is low on confidence may not be the best move for either the team or the player. Saying that though there is no doubt that Foster has the potential to be a top keeper and if he was first pick at United he would cost considerably more than the £6 million being mentioned at the moment.

Spurs Spend £150 million on Transfers

Spurs have went through a complete rebuilding process of the team, and have spent £150 million in transfers over the last 16 months meaning that they have out spent the whole of the Premiership, including the top 4 of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, apart from big spending Manchester City.

Even with this huge financial outlay Spurs were still able to announce a pre-tax profit for the year ending in June 2009, largely due to the sale of Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov.

It is clear that this is a huge amount of money but Spurs have signed a lot of players for the money and strengthened key positions for the team including the strike force with Crouch and Defoe being two of the top strikers in the Premiership just now. Robbie Keane was also resigned for the club and although we have yet to see him at his best he is still a top player and one of the key players in a Spurs football shirt.

Spurs at the moment are reaping the rewards of their financial expenditure as they are currently sitting 4th in the Premiership and in line to get a Champions League spot but there is along way to go in the season yet.
After the announcement of pre-tax profits Daniel Levy not only showed his delight at the quality of players that Spurs have at the club but also on the future plans for the team. 

 “We have made significant progress in delivering on our long-term vision for the club.

“We have always had three key priorities and you will have heard them oft repeated – investment in the first team, a new training centre and an increased capacity, state-of-the-art new stadium.

“We have assembled what we believe to be one of the most talented squads we have had during our time in the Premier League, the ground is being turned and pitches laid for the new training centre at Bulls Cross in Enfield and we have submitted a planning application for a stunning new stadium on a site next to our existing stadium.”

Everything is looking bright at the moment and if we can maintain the form we have shown in the early part of the season then we will have Champions League football to look forward to next season.
