Despite Daniel Levy hiding behind a steward and donning a Luka Modric Hairpiece, it seems that no one was fooled into thinking that our little Croatian mercenary was crossing the Atlantic. It now appears that Modric refused to travel to America, and though this would seem like the start of his one man war against Levy and the club, who would you really back in a battle of will between the rodent look alike and our great leader?
With no Sandro, Rose, Caulker or GdS due to the Olympics, Parker due to his Achilles injury or Pienaar to his impending move to Everton, it would seem that we have a rather compact squad, though with an expected announcement over Emmanuel Adebayor's future very shortly, we might at least have more than one established striker. Emmanuel is supposed to be in New York and was supposedly pictured wearing Elvis Presley's glasses, with a Spurs fan last night, so hopefully he is there to conclude his move to WHL rather than taking an extra holiday, as he probably remains persona non grata at City.
Spurs face LA Galaxy with former player Robbie Keane, sure to be up for a battle against his former club, Liverpool and Thierry Henry's New York Red Bulls, which will all be highly interesting and competitive games, that might even make me get up in the early hours to watch...
