Lack of Ambition or Cash?

Lack of Ambition or Cash?

So surprise surprise it looks like Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is going to join Stuttgart.Exactly whose fault is that!?

Even though the player has apparently come out and said that Champion's League football is not everything and that he would love to play in the English Premier League, we still did not make the sufficient effort required to bag his services.

Surely if we possessed the motivation Harry Redknapp and Daniel Levy could sell their hopes and dreams to him about us being a top four club.He would certainly be one of those to help us achieve that aim so why have we not even officially been in contention for this goal machine?

Did we actually make a move for this guy or was it mere press speculation?It comes to something when Harry is bigging up the likes of Peter Crouch as someone he would love to sign, but not even a mention never mind any drooling over the prospect of Van Nistlerooy, Robben, Negredo or Huntelaar arriving at the Lane!!

Does this show a lack of ambition from the club?Have we already settled for mid-table mediocrity sadly and pessimistically accepting we will never break into the top four or get the better of Manchester City, or does Daniel Levy acknowledge that the amount of cash and investment required to do so is much more than he and Enic are prepared to spend?

Maybe Harry is in his comfort zone with people like Peter Crouch and workmanlike Premiership players of his ilk.He may be ill at ease with any potential superstars and feel he would be unable to handle someone who could display prima donna characteristics.After all, in world terms he is virtually an unknown outside these shores.

Huntelaar would have been self-financing due to the amount of shirts he sold and goals he scored plus no one could logically argue against your superstar top goalscorer quite justifiably drawing the highest wages.

This malaise and lack of foresight and vision infecting the club is a worrying thing for those who fondly remember the glory days and when true superstars graced the White Hart Lane pitch.

Should we really give up the ambition to return to those halcyon days so easily by settling for a Peter Crouch and a couple of full backs from a Championship side as the only things required to complement our assault on the Premiership with a view to grabbing a European place?

i think crouch would b a better signind than huntelaar. he is unproven in a top league. crouch is a very underated player and i think him and defoe could be a top4 strike partnership anyday of the week. huntelaar is to small and weak to be a top EPL targetman, he stands at 6ft'1 and crouchie is 6ft'7 and proven. LAY OFF CROUCHIE!!!!!!

I'd love to see Huntelaar at the Lane, but would also be quite happy to see Crouchy back. Those two plus Defoe and Bent would be a formidable set of strikers. The Irish Judas and the Russian Strop could then depart for who-cares-where...

Neither, maybe we were not even in the running for him? From what I have heard the Hunter is a poacher/predator type not a target man. We bid for Jones in Jan, and Harry has admitted he likes Crouch clearly he wants a target man, someone to play alongside Defoe in all likelyhood, IMO I don't think the Hunter has ever been a target of ours.

Also I'm pretty sure we won't buy a striker till we have sold one of Bent or Pav, if we can't shift them off the books then were stuck with what we have got. I also reckon Harry did a little tapping up of Crouch to try to put Sunderland off or stall the deal so that they come back in for Bent or to buy us more time to flog Pav.

If you look at the teams in the running for a top six finish, all have proven Prem players, Fulham, Everton, Villa. Someone like Crouch will add to what we already have and improve us, the Hunter, could be great, could be poor, could be average. With Crouch we know what we are getting, a proven Prem player, proven international. Even look at the top 4, there big names have all taken time to settle and they can give them time as have strength in depth (Nani @ Man Utd, Nasri, Rosicki @ the Arse) even some of there best players were poor for 6 to 9 months - Evra, Drogba, Berbatov for us, could even say the great Ronaldo was poor for a year, the list is endless. What im saying is top foreginers do not equal sucess, but saying that would love Hunterlaar - he could be that player who is an instant sucess and scores a hat load!!!

I dont think Levy is worried about Hunterlaar using Spurs as a stepping stone. Think about it, what that means is that he does well, hopefully he signs for Spurs for £18million, scores 30 goals a season, gets us into the Champions League, then if Man Utd, Barca, AC Milan want to pay £60 million, im sure Levy will be a happy man!!!!

the main thing that gets me is we have allowed a build up of average players coming in for stupid fees and wages we must have a squad of 20 - 25 players of those how many would u say get in the top 4 teams, woodgate? lennon, modric, palacios, defoe? for a squad our size says alot about the lack of quality, and money we have wasted, gomes 8, hutton 8, corluka 8, bale 6, bentley 16, boatang 5, bent 16, pav 13, keane,15 and proberly many more but they total around 100 million ur telling me with that sought of money u couldnt get 5 - 6 quality players, the thing that scares me the most is this new stadium, looks like it gonna give us the spending power as the scummer , would rather better players than a new stadium

latest quote from his agent is that no deal has been struck now, latest speculation from the papers is that he's holding out to see if any big guns jump in last minute (suggesting that the "decision by monday" thing was a just a ploy to gauge interest from the likes of chelsea). Latest news from vital spurs (surprise surprise) moan, moan, moan..."oh no, our players arent good enough for the top 4"...well no *****, sherlock thats why we're top 6/7...i guess you think that world class players are falling over themselves to join everton and villa do you...Seriously, how you can say that us not getting Huntelaar (yet) shows a lack of ambition is beyond me. Us not even bothering to go for them is lack of ambition, us giving it a shot and being turned down is just whats going to happen sometimes, happens to all other clubs all the time too, get over it. Im not sure hes chosen stuttgart over us, I think he was hoping someone bigger would come in for him if he looked like he was gonna sign. The reports on him signing for stuttgart are all from German press and have yet to be confirmed...the longer that is the case the more likely it is that its crap (see "a young has medical at spurs" for an example over here)

Maybe its a lack of neccessity. Lets face it, why tamper with a team that had top 5 form for a lot of last season. Rock the boat too much and we can end up a step back from where we are now. Although Huntelaar is a good, possibly great player, he's exactly the sort that could rock the boat. He'd be our top earner, without question, and with a £20mil price tag on his head, he'd have to adapt like ON HIS DEBUT unless people would start to get on his back. Crouch would not be a step backwards. He'd be a safe bet, not chucking all our eggs in one basket. He wouldn't neccessarily be first choice, but Pavlyuchenko would have to work hard to break the pretty formidable partnership of Crouch and Defoe. Looks like Negredo may not even be an option. He was in the team tonight against Shamrock, whereas Huntelaar unsurprisingly didn't travel.

Before eveyone starts shouting for this guy - has anyone seen him play longer than a YouTube clip? He isnt that good trust me - he has been slung around every Dutch club - Heerenveen PSV Ajax De Grafschap - why do you think this is - Real are not that interested in keeping him 6 months after signing him for how ever much they did - Pav and Bent got around the same game time as him last season and both scored more goals than him - in this country - he is too big a gamble and a big risk of unsettling the team with his crazy wage demands!! Why even mix it up - Pav im sure will come good - but is he that good an influence on the team - he still hasnt grasped English that well - I think if we kept Defoe Keane Bent and got Crouch in - that would be good enough!!

Yeah Negredo's never impressed me, seems Hartfelt was bored and bitter when he wrote this article. Harry knows what he's doing, I don't think we'll end up with Crouch either. All four of our strikers are better than Peter Crouch (and I don't really think he would be able to provide for Defoe as well as anyone else). Sure we don't have crazy money to spend on players, but all that means is that we'll be buying one or two players... not 6. We have money for Robben and Huntelaar, but that doesn't mean that we'll get them. if Huntelaar comes in then I see a striker leaving (anyone but Defoe it seems). If I had to have one of the two dutch primadonnas it would be Robben to be quite honest... At least I'm not hearing anymore Jones/Bellamy rumors... And JESUS birdmanspurs! you call Corluka, Keane, and Gomes wastes of money? Sure Keane hasn't scored as many goals as he could have and Gomes had a goofy start, but they're quality players!

Harry and Levy will do their best and they know best, so stop panicking and stop jumping to conclusions. Lack of ambition, I doubt. Everyone knows Levy wants CL football that is why he sacked Jol who took us to two 5th spots and brought Ramos in to take us to CL spot but it didn't work. We all know Levy as CL in his mind but this time he isn't blurting it out like he did with Jol because he knows Harry would give him *****ttt. So ambitious I think Levy is and he will do what he can with the funds available to get players in for Harry to try and break the top four. Now if that's Crouch, Huntelaar or some unknown player/s who knows but whoever comes it will be for the right reasons and within our limits and with progression in mind and CL in Levy's mind, trust me. You don't have ambition one season and totally destroy everything trying to achieve it and then become unambitions, cautious maybe, quietly ambitions definately but ambitious I'm sure.

I am becoming more and more frustrated with Redknapp and his apparent lack of ambition. I might be proved wrong ( and i really, really hope i am), but it does very much so appear that all he wants are players like Crouch that are just bang average and can simply do a job. Im not Kenae's biggest fan, but with him, Defoe, Pav and Keane, i wouldnt take Crouch over any of them. Selling one of them and replacing them with him would only be a step backwards. Surely i am right.? Even if i am wrong, it certainly wouldn't be a step forward, a very long step in the same direction. Ive preached stability on here before, but if Redknapp believes we've got a squad good enough to go now, why isn't he looking forward.? Why is he looking sideways and not at player's of Huntelaar's quality.? I'm taking the 'Harry has no ambition' side of the argument from this article cos it's very hard to see the other angle to be honest. I think he's finally got the big-club-but-easy-job that he's been after, he wants to maintain our position as a top 6 team but blame our inability to crack the top four on Man City's money. I am of course sayin this from a future perspective as this is perhaps where we will be in a year or two's time. Harry, prove me wrong and at least say you want to buy big players and drop a few names. Everyone else does. Otherwise we'll be bang average till we smarten up and get Jol back.

We have ambition. It is to make the top 4. Tell me who has Levy decided to sell for a profit? No one, Carrick, Keane and Berbatov all put in transfer requests and he had no choice. He fought hard to keep them, hence there high sale values. I have never enjoyed a spurs money man more than Levy. He has made mistakes but they were made because he tried too hard to get us what we all want! He is not going give to give up, trust me.
