'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sandro?

Following his injury scare at Loftus Road on Sunday, it seems there remains plenty of confusion over the condition of our midfield superstar.

Following the game, AVB seemed relaxed and confident that the Brazilian would be fit to face Manchester United on Sunday, however since there has been talk of him undergoing surgery yesterday and from that we either get talk of his being back against Leeds to perhaps Norwich or that he is out for the season, which is the last thing any Spurs fan wants to hear.

Of course having surgery doesn't really tell us anything. You have such a wide spectrum of possibilities from minor key-hole that allows a player to train and play within days or operations that take months to recover, and end seasons. What we don't know at this stage is whether he has had surgery or not and if he has, what level of procedure he has had.

The positives are that we at least have a very good player to step straight in with Scott Parker, but what happens to our next in line? Will Sandro's injury end talk of Jake Livermore joining QPR or whoever else? Will it force Mr Levy into bringing in a new midfielder to bolster the squad? With there seemingly still being concerns over the fitness of Mousa Dembele, a player who to me who doesn't seem 100% fit since his return, either in mind or body. are we in danger of leaving ourselves short, should anything happen to either Parker or Dembele?

That could all be alarmist, but will we suddenly see greater efforts made to attract a new midfielder in, in this window? There certainly seem to be plenty of options. Could we try to hijack QPR's deal for Yann M'Vila at what seems to be a bargain price? There has been talk of our interest in Moussa Sissoko who is available on a Bosman free transfer in the summer (I believe) or perhaps we will simply look to bring in the creative midfielder we need regardless with someone like Willian or even bring our already done deal for Lewis Holtby forward, if that remains an option.

At this stage we can only hope and speculate and of course, we might have to accept that Spurs might prefer to remain tight lipped over the injury to Sandro as any confirmation of a long term absence could easily hike up any price for a potential purchase, as clubs know our need is urgent. All we can do now however, is to sit tight and hope for the best, or it is beast?...
