2nd chance, anyone?

For so long we have boasted about the quality in reserve at WHL and with a new manager on the horizon, what better time to try to gain a second chance.

Niko Kranjcar has already gone, and it appears likely that fellow countryman Vedran Corluka will soon follow of the squad players, but what of the rest? Heurelho Gomes, has today hinted that he will perhaps stay and see what pans out under a new manager, after previously looking certain to leave, but will there be any other players feeling happier or at least more optimistic of getting another chance at Spurs.

Giovani dos Santos, David Bentley, Jermaine Jenas, Jermain Defoe, Sebastien Bassong, Steven Pienaar, Danny Rose and a few others might also be looking to see what happens before making a decision that they ultimately might regret, whilst also the club is sure to hold fire on allowing too many ins or outs until they have shaken hands on a deal with the next manager, if of course he is to have any say in the moving of players.

You would assume that the club may already at least have a type of manager they want and have perhaps already established a few ideas with one or two major targets, and perhaps the likes of Corluka, doesn`t really fit in with any of the coaches ideas, even if decisions are currently being made by a committee including Sherwood, Levy and whoever else fancies chipping in their opinion.

Of those mentioned above, you could imagine that AVB, if he gets the job, might consider the pace of Bassong and Rose as useful qualities, should he still be looking to play a high defensive line, whilst could the ability to keep the ball moving of Jermaine Jenas, the work-rate and all round quality of Pienaar or the vision of Bentley or Gio be positive additions, rather than obvious departures or in reality are they already considered surplus to requirements due to past failings or indiscretions?

Looking at the list, I don`t see too many players that could be considered as absolute must not sell players, even though I would definitely want to keep Pienaar if possible, and would perhaps prefer to loan as opposed to sell Danny Rose, but will their staying or going depend on who comes in or whether they and others have already set their sights elsewhere.

Of the emerging kids, could we see Caulker, Naughton, Townsend, Smith, Parrett, Kane or anyone else make the step up to becoming regular first team squad members, in what could well become part of the new managers objective in blooding and developing younger players over buying big money ones, though in either case, you hope it will be a building upon what is already in place over a ripping up of what we have and effectively starting again, which would be totally the wrong move...
