Which Tottenham Players Would You Put On The Transfer List?

tottenham next year shirt Which Tottenham Players Would You Put On The Transfer List?

With Tottenham Hotspur experiencing their worst start to a season since 1912, it’s time for desperate measures at White Hart Lane. If you were in charge of the club, which players would you put on the transfer list, which personnel would you sack and who would you keep?

Here are my picks:

Sack them:

  • Daniel Levy, chairman,
  • Damien Comolli, sporting director,
  • Juande Ramos, manager.

Put them on the transfer list:

  • Jermaine Jenas, vice-captain,
  • Gilberto,
  • David Bentley,
  • Darren Bent,
  • Didier Zokora,
  • Michael Dawson,
  • Benoit Assou-Ekotto,
  • Hossam Ghaly.

Jury is still out:

  • Luka Modric,
  • Heurelho Gomes,
  • Giovani Dos Santos,
  • Roman Pavlyuchenko,
  • Aaron Lennon,
  • Fraizer Campbell.

Keep them:

  • Gus Poyet, assistant manager,
  • Gareth Bale,
  • Jonathan Woodgate,
  • Chris Gunter,
  • Alan Hutton,
  • Tom Huddlestone,
  • Vedran Corluka,
  • Jamie O’Hara,
  • Ledley King.

The sad truth is that the current Spurs squad isn’t good enough. The club has no leaders. The players they bought in the summer need time to adjust, and the team has lost its attacking dynamo of Robbie Keane and Dimitar Berbatov.

That, coupled with a manager who is too incompetent to inspire his players or get them playing together as a cohesive unit, is a recipe for disaster.

What do you think? If you were in charge of Spurs, who would you sack, who would you put on the transfer list and who would you keep? Share your ideas by clicking the comments link below.
