Dos Santos proves his worth (again) for Mexico.

Dos Santos proves his worth (again) for Mexico.

Mexico has continued with the fine form they displayed at the World Cup last year, by winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer.

Their style of play is quick penetrating football, very exciting to watch! Giovani Dos Santos was Man-of-the-Match, in their final game vs. USA. He capped a brilliant tournament with a jaw-dropping goal, the kind of goal that you only see from a Lionel Messi or Zidane.

Poor Tim Howard was left pounding his fists on the ground. Who is Giovani Dos Santos? You might ask - because Harry Redknapp has not selected the young international for Tottenham Hotspur. No, Giovani has been sent out on loan three times, since arriving at White Hart Lane, in 2008. He has played in all of 10 matches for Spurs.

The only criticism that I recall from Redknapp: that Giovani was spending too much time out, at the clubs, arriving late for training. Certainly this is something that can be remedied? I mean, to play regularly as a starter for your country, one must have a certain level of maturity??

My fear is that many clubs, having witnessed the recent Mexico performance, will be making offers for Dos Santos. He is young and supremely gifted. I would love to see him stay at Spurs - and given a proper chance to break into our starting XI.

Surely, he would be an awesome 'impact sub' with his blazing speed and finesse. I can still remember the pre-season under Ramos, when our squad was firing on all cylinders - playing the kind of football that originally attracted me to Spurs. And Dos Santos was one of the shining stand-out players in those matches.

there are two big "ifs" with Gio, and they are A) does he really want to stay at Spurs and B) what formation are we looking to play next season? if we are looking for an attacking player to come in from wide to support one striker, in a 4-2-3-1 or similar formation, Gio would be perfect and probably better than someone like Lennon who is still not happy cutting inside from the right side and also isnt as good with his finsihing as Gio.

Great Article. A player we must keep hold of. I honestly believe he could be our Rossi. I hope with all my heart he gets given a chance to play a lone role upfront with VDV in the hole. he is a fantastic finisher and would offer us to much.

Not saying Gio isnt a good player, but that CONCACAF tournament was a joke, the standard was embarrassing. Mexico playing in it, is the equivalent of Barcelona going into a cup where their only opposition were clubs from league 2.

i hope he's given a chance to prove his worth, clearly our stupid manager thinks gio is a midfielder when he is a winger/second striker or striker with his blazing pace, dribbling skills and lovely finish. i bet crouch will not score better in his career than the goal gio scored in the gold cup final.

Guyver: true enough, but Mexico was one of the better sides, last year in South Africa, I thought. The U.S. squad is not bad, but Mexico - with their speed and commitment - made them look average.

What is the point of keeping him if he does not get on the pitch? So, allegedly his attitude is p1ss poor, well I bet if he was at man utd, fergie would have sorted him out by now. Fergie and wenger, 2 managers who know to get the best out of their players. Maybe his attitude is a result of how he feels he has been treated. There is no doubt he is a superbly talented footballer, then again so is Taraabt.

I have been saying all along, that we have the nucleus of a Barca-style squad. Gio fits into that picture beautifully, as well as all three Croatians. As manager, this would be my guiding principle: those who can play intuitive one-touch possession football stay, the others go! Bye-bye Peter Crouch and Robbie Keane, Palacios, Hutton ...

So if he can play for Mexico he must be able to play in the Premier League ? Its not great logic. There have been plenty of players who have been successful for their country and been able to cut it in other European leagues but haven't been able to do it in ours. One question, if he's that great why aren't there a host of clubs banging on our door trying to sign him ? Ferguson didn't hesitate over Hernandez, he's not interested in Gio. He's another of those players who fans want to succeed so pretend he's better than he really is.

F**K IT, I'll kick-off the arguing. Come on MJB, get stuck in mate ;-). Gio is too good for any team Harry Redknapp's. He will NEVER be appreciated by Harry Redknapp. And WHY the fack would he want to play for the guy anyway?. If only he could get pi$$ed as well as Peter facking Crouch, and Ledley King. I'm sure he'd be perfect then. good luck to you Gio. You go where you're appreciated fella. And while you're at it, take Niko and Aaron with you. I'm sure they'd quite like to be appreciated too!!

He has never had a chance with us due to injury and team selection. He may be ready now for a run in the team. What do we have to loose, he knows the surrundings. His reported behavior which may improve with maturity is no worse than some other top players. Does his face not fit for some reason?. Give him a chance.

Gio did have a run of games under Ramos at the start of the "bad" year and he produced nothing under a manager who spoke fluently with him. Yeah he was a youngster and I don't slate him for that. But did any of you HR bashers think that what HR's done is send him out to get some playing time and some maturity? Course not because he's brilliant, Messi in disguise. C'mon he's young and needs seasoning/playing time. The loan has kept him in the game instead of on a bench or in the stands. All this HR bashing for goodness sakes, there's only 14 players per game. If the young guys are to have some playing time to keep them motivated and getting game time, this is how it's done. Maybe just maybe HR will incorporate him this season. And if he is sold I'm sure we'll at least get our money back!

gio should stay, its plain obvious he has talent he just needs guidance as do pretty much every footballer out there. i find it beyond belief that redknapp seems to choose his team on who's a "top bloke"/ who he gets along with. if you had given gio the same amount of games as crouch this season (or any other of our strikers for that matter) and compared the goal tally/assists/ general play and creation etc then gio would be ahead by a country mile.

I watched the game live and actually became frustrated at watching him play. Frustrated and annoyed that this talent is not getting a chance at WHL. How many times did we dominate the game last season, but could not find that cutting edge to break open the defence. His first touch is world class, and the opportunities he provides for other players is sublime. With players like Modric, VDV, Sandro and Bale around him he would shine. Gutted, disappointed and rather *****ed off that he'll be shown the door by our clueless management team.

jvd, panama, el salvador, Guatemala, Grenada, Canada, Jamaica ect, I know England are going through tough times at the moment, but the situation isnt THAT bad! Only Mexico and USA would be competition and USA coasted to the final playing badly.

and you miss my point re Mancini/Tevez. Im just saying that Mancini doesnt seem to let personal opinions on a player cloud his judgement. He didnt have to make Tevez captain. Whether Kranc deserves to start games or not is irrelevant, Harry obviously has his favourites (more than most managers) and that can lead to some bizzare dicisions. eg starting Crouch 20+ times in a row times before finally realising after 1 single goal, that he needed to be dropped. Or dropping Kranc after he won us 2 games straight, (just before we went on our long winless run). Why does he give some players more chances to impress than others?

This is quite a quote.....

QUOTE Hold your horses, there.

I know I may be completely wrong on this, but at the moment, all we really have to go on is the Mail's article claiming to have direct quotes from him. They could have been very carefully edited and doctored to appear to be saying something other than what he said. h*ll, for all we know, he could have said nothing and this could all come from a Borabchian (sp?) stooge saying "yeah, heah, he did say all these things to me".

He has neither publicly retracted nor publicly confirmed any of this. Maybe that is because he is on his honeymoon and left instructions not to be disturbed.

The only facts, as I see them, are: That his agent, the one we do business with, has been adamant throughtout that he has a very good relationship with Levy (and we know this to be true), and that Modric is happy at WHL. That the article from the Mail doesn't actually accord with anything Modric has previously said, or anything we could discern about his character. And, finally, that Levy has specifically stated that Modric will not be sold, and anyone who still pursues this matter will face action.

Now, some unsubstantiated source has said something that, again, does not accord with anything Modric has said, and a fair proportion of Spurs fans are going balistic, and being abusive of the player. How many times did he say that he wouldn;t push things to the extent of handing in a transfer request, even in the Mail article (I believe), and now, all of a sudden, on one unsubstantiated source's say-so, folk are prepared to believe he is prepared to go on strike

That is the current state of play, and yet, with the only substantial fact we know about a Modric transfer being that Chelsea offered a ridiculously low amount for no other purpose than to tell the media with the intention of usettling the player, it has already totally changed our perception of the player and the relationship we once had with him (and maybe that was the point). I have noticed, in typing this up, that I have gone from calling him Modders to calling him Modric. And there is no real basis for any of this but panic.

I believe he came off the bench to do it last season? And then did the same in the following game (but from the start). It's all about 'alternatives'. There is NO 'alternative' with Harry. It's ALWAYS the same, no matter who the opposition. Why else do you propose we are so easy to stop from winning?. The amount of draws last season backs up my argument/stance.

I was waiting for our annual 'Gio should play more' article. I would like him stay and he always has a decent pre-season for us then disappears. Problem is I don't know who to drop for Gio, do we drop Lennon, Bale or VDV so Gio can start or who should we drop from the bench? I think Gio is at the club at the wrong time, I would like him to stay and be used more but I can't see it happening.

With all the talk of Gio's wonder goal, vs. USA, you may have overlooked his contribution to the tying 2nd goal: sublimely controlling the ball on the right wing, then cutting back into the box, onto his left foot for a quick low strike that made Guardado's finish easy.

Mix26: you are kidding, right? Even Lionel Messi has to take a bow to Gio - there has not been a goal as stunning this year: first timing an excellent run into the box, receiving the pass, cutting back with Howard desperately attempting to swat the ball away, expertly holding the ball in traffic, before lifting an inch-perfect lob over the head of the defender, into the top left corner of the net!!! Please enlighten us: where was there a better solo effort this year??

I mean, if you are serious in your intent to revisit the Champion's League ... what Gio showed in this recent tournament is Messi-like skill. He can run like the wind, super quick, incredible balance and poise; he is an equally gifted passer and striker. Could well become an MVP, in a few years time ... COYS!!!

canadaspurssupport, like others on here, you're overrating him a little imo, if he was that good, clubs in Spain would be breaking the bank to sign him after his recent spell over there. He is decent, but not exactly irreplaceable.

Guyver: maybe Racing Satander did not utilize Giovani properly? He can only get better - like Pav, he needs a manager who can stand behind him, encourage him with regular starts. Why not emulate Barca in the Prem? Look what they did to United in the CL final! People say that their types of players are too small for English football ... and they humiliated Alex Ferguson.

He actually played quite well for Racing from what I hear, scored a few goals aswell, which in a way makes me more suspicious that nobody seems to be keen on him..

Guyver: after the CONCACAF tournament, I am sure there will be plenty of interest - hopefully most of it will come from our own coaching staff and board of directors!!! Gio (like Modric) is the kind of player around which a squad can be built - we have all the ingredients. We simply need some new direction, then we will be scoring more goals than any other team in the Prem! No more of these 1 - 0 and 2 - 1 matches! Spurs should have a + 40 goal differential easy!!!

Personally I'd rather have a kid with huge upside potential on the bench that Parker but you know 'Arry.........

BTW this kid could sub in as an impact player for VDV, Lennon, Bale, Modric, ect. He has a huge talent and only needs 'Arry to give him a bl**y chance. Get rid of Palacios, Jennas, etc.a dn make a space on the roster from him!

now let me get this out the way first. I HATE the reliance on Crouch, but his record for England speaks for itself. Picking players on international form cannot be done. GDS' performances for Mexico, like Crouch's were against much weaker opposition (predominently) so you've got to be careful calling for a recognition of international performances. that being said i wouldnt mind seeing giovanni given an oppurtunity, especially if god-forbid Modric leaves, or as a alternative up front, especially with the current dross

If you buy the tabloids, you are responcible for the ****e they print. Simple. An independent study investigating the responsiveness of football fans to media hyped football roumors showed that THFC fans may be the most effective set of individuals to target. It has been said that the averarge spurs fan may buy up to 6 different daily papers, with the Daily Mirror, a notorious anti-Tottenham news-sheet possibly the most read. This situation, it has been reported, is now top of the agenda for some people associated with public relations in Tottenham and measures will be taken to combat the 'taking advantage of' by other London clubs.
