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?
