    While his decision to leave Spurs pains me, A nice transfer fee will make the folks at White Hart Lane happy.

    Didier Zokora has alreayd signed with Spurs and with DeFoe, Lennon and Jenas a year more experienced along with Keane I believe Spurs midfield and attack is going to be among the best in the EPL this year even without Carrick.
