What Kind Of Striker?

There's obviously been a lot of talk about our failure to sign a striker, my question is though what sort of striker is it people think we should have signed?

To illustrate the point look at the current list of scorers in the Premier league. Top, no surprises, are Van Persie and Suarez with 18 and 17, both very skilful players who move all over the pitch. Next however with 14 is Ba, a completely different type of forward, a powerhouse who leads the line. Then with 13 comes Michu, I am not sure how you describe him, whether he is actually a striker or an attacking midfield player. Then comes a group of four on 11. Lambert and Dzeko are centre forwards but Walcott is a completely different type of player and our own Gareth Bale isn't a striker at all.

The point is you can't just define a striker in terms of scoring goals, some midfield players can do that, Mata and Lampard currently have the same number of league goals as Rooney. You need to know what role you want the player to perform for the team. Personally I am looking for a target man, someone who can hold the ball and bring others into the game as well as score goals.

If Villa get relegated I would hope we would go after Benteke, 22 years old, already proven in the Premier league and with the skill and strength to lead the line. But when other fans talk about a striker they may have a completely different type of player in mind, its just not a very useful term. So what type of striker are people actually looking for?

One who will get us the first goal each game!
jvd
van persie or dzeko
Guernman
Odemwingie on "emergency" loan anyone?

If we're looking to the summer, I'd have Dzeko if available in a heartbeat. Forget Damaio - please!!!

I'd like us to sign Benteke if possible. He's young, powerful, scored at a rate of about 1 in 2 for a terrible Villa side and is a real handful. Would still be a risk, but depending on the valuation, could be 1 worth taking. With Defoe at 30 maybe time to sell before his value plummets.. allowing us to bring in another forward, preferably an intelligent forward like Keane and Berba. I think that type of player will help with the lack of creativity/slick passing we have seen with Spurs this season.
Guyver
Frankly we already have the striker we need in Ade. He's a target man, he holds the ball well, good in the air. His only drawback is that he doesn't have a great shot. I know some don't like him and say he has an attitude but my take is that he needs games to get back his sharpness. Also he felt the love from early last season and he responded. This year what he's felt is negativity and maybe he's responding to that also. Lets get behind him and support the guy.
jvd
Reckon if Ade's firing and holding it up there could be goals for Bale Holtby Demps Lennon as well as Ade getting a few himself. It will change the way we play as he'll have his back to goal rather than running at defenders. So if Ade is playing well he's the one we need.
Yorkspur
None of the other top teams ManU, ManC nor Chelsea will sell to us as they see us as a real competitor at the moment and will not want to strengthen us. ManC sold us Ade because they feel they were unloading a problem that they just wanted off their books. I don't see any other problems as Ballotelli is gone.
jvd
Anyone!!
spurspanther
Heard that we're linked to Braga's Eder.
what_sux
we'll see where we are on Aug 30th and then decide which one to put a 'bid' in for on Aug 31st...until then hope Bale stays fit and firing....Ade will lead the line for us...
shedboy2
I think Ade is the best we have when all are fit although he needs to feel a lot of love otherwise his form drops, which is exactly the scenario this season. I'd say Falcao is the type of player we need, only we will not pay his fee. I don't believe he's unique though, we need our scouts to find the new Falcao for a fee of £10m or something. like that.
yiddyboy
This piece is as pointless as Bulleye's Jim Bowen showing a hapless pair from Walsall the speedboat they could've won had they been any good at darts.
lordjohnny
seriously? discussing strikers AGAIN!!....now!!!......we can do F all about it now anyway......Levy is a fool for not buying Benteke in Jan, he would of jumped at the chance at playing for us. It is typical spurs luck, dont get a striker when we clearly need one & hope Defoe orAde dont get injured..........deary deary me, that was a worthwhile gamble wasn't it mr Levy..... Bell End.
jesusthedevil
Aguero type of striker would be great to have. I believe there ar young players around the world that fits this bill. All we ave to do is find them before the mega-rich clubs do it.
AlexSpur
jesusthedevil - Hoping Defoe don't get injured, what exactly has he done since Christmas when NOT injured?
yiddyboy
Totally agree on Benteke - closest thing I've seen to Drogba. I know its a bit early to be thinking about what formation play v Newcastle but how about this. Surely Ade will be back for the following fixture so we will only need to go makeshift for the Newcastle game, and if I was AVB then I would be very tempted to try out the Barca formation of 4 - 6 - 0: Lloris, Walker, Daws, Verts, Ekotto Parker, Lennon, Holtby,Dembele, Bale Dempsey Any views on this? I think much better than throwing the likes of Obika up top and letting him just get swallowed up by the game.
TornadoYid
LJ- you got it....In one!
shedboy2
To the last 2 posts: it is not pointless. We striker scenario is a perennial problem. Just because the window has shut, it does not mean that we cannot discuss the type of striker. Besides, we need TWO. I would like to combine a Benteke type with a Shane Long type. One thing that we have lacked up front for some time is a Tenacious type striker. One that fights and battles, and creates opportunities. I am jealous to see Aguero, Tevez, Rooney - all not big and tall yet 6ft defenders hate playing against them. Crouch, Pav, Bent, Defoe, Berbatov all not of that ilk. Scoring goals is one thing, but even you get 20 league goals in a season, HALF the games you failed to score in. So if you did not score, what did you contribute? At top 4 team needs more than just goals from their strikers.
TonyRich
Perhaps I should have named the posters...kind of messed that up! But you know what I mean.
TonyRich
yiddyboy - whilst that is true about Defoe, the problem is that AVB has striker blindness. How many times has he not had a striker on the bench - even a youngster. So now that Defoe is injured, I hope that he involves Kane in some capacity, because pretending that we have no strikers (when we have Kane and Obika) is not helping. I am not a Kane fan either, but he is better than nothing...
TonyRich
I did raise this issue a few articles back when we still had a chance to sign a striker and the players being linked with us were so different in style and ability that no sane person could conclude that these targets came from a list drafted by anyone associated with the club. I would have to agree with Alexspur, that an Aguero type player is what we need. Someone with enough pace to keep up with Lennon and Bale, the vision to pick out a pass to a teammate in a better position and the abiltiy to make that pass or score a goal instead. We have a target man at the club (well on the way back to the club) but we don't play target man football. Defoe would be ideal if he could be thaught how to look up and assess his options before he just blasts it and also if he could be thaught how to convert more of the chances created. So keep defoe and just implant Aguero's footballing brain! (probably more likely to happen then Spurs actually signing a striker)
Slurms McKenzie
What-sux....I heard that too. Apparently about £8mill. Don't know anything about him but would assume AVB would being at a Portugese club. Tornadoyid I feel that could be worth a look but might confuse the system, isn't it really a take on 4-3-3 which is apparently AVB's preferred? Yiddyboy, answer about Defoe is .....the same as every other season!!!
longtimespur
A brain transplant for Defoe! Love it Slurms!! LMFAO.

If there is an Aguero type striker valued under £20m, he's hiding himself very well.

Get champions league and go out and get Falcao or Cavani

As far as strikers go, I'd like one that is a) in this country, b) isn't injured and c) knows where the net is. That'll do for me!
spurboy61
Spurspanther is "champions League" code for mega rich Arab oil Billionaire? 'Cause thats the only way Spurs are ever going to get players like that!
Slurms McKenzie
Falcao's just never going to happen. He wouldnt want to join and we couldnt afford him.
Guyver
Slums, i live in hope. Im giving Levy one more transfer widow to prove hes not a complete length!
spurspanther
Or, go for both Benteke and Lukaku and sell defoe.
spurspanther
spurspanther - why Levy? It is AVB's job to say which striker fits into his system. We were after Leandro before AVB was here, so AVB has brought nothing striker-wise to the table. Sturridge was available, and is looking good now (perhaps like Suarez, he was always Liverpool bound no matter what we do) - but he was only 12m. The money is there for a striker. We spend a lot on a keeper that was far from a priority, so I believe the money is there. It is up the AVB to pick a realistic target... There are plenty. Benteke was no discovery...he hit 19 goals in 37 games for Genk, young and becoming a regular Belgian international, physically perfect for EPL... We were changing manager at the time to buy him. People go on about Levy as if he picks the team. If AVB wanted Hooper, Levy would have got him.
TonyRich
Tony, AVB wanted Mountihno AND Damio why didnt we get them?
spurspanther
Forget Damaio - please!!!
SpursWho
No way SpursWho we'll get at least another two transfer windows out of Damaio before we have to actually buy someone!
Slurms McKenzie
I was thinking if I had the choice on what sort of striker to get it would be someone who is an aerial threat and natural goal scorer we dont score enough goals from balls in the air we already have threat from distance but need some one who is more physical.
DSpurs
To slow to react...and clearly, spurs are tight on money. There's been strikers available, in the last two windows.....that were within our price range but those in control are weak and indecisive. Leandro damaio...forget him, too costly...and don't want him. Don't think he wants spurs, either. We'll have to wait till the summer to see what's occuring. Till then....faith in > AVB / ADDY / BALE / DEMPSEY / HOLTBY / SIGGY' / DEFOE / KANE / O'BIKA.........is what is Required, to see us home, this season.
82spursdebut
So all we really need is someone with the power and presence of Drogba, the finishing touch and control of RVP, the vision and movement of Aguero plus the ability of Messi. If we can get two of him then even better...So hows all that genetic cloning technology coming along?
Slurms McKenzie
So Andy Booth then?

Exactly spurspanther or any Gary Doherty type striker!

Get Benteke and Lukaku and we are set for years to come. Unfortunately neither will happen, especially Lukaku.
Jables
For the last time Benteke couldn't have moved in January as he has already played for 2 teams this season. Damiao has come out and said, "Thank you for your interest but I do not want to play for Tottenham in the future as he wants to stay with Inter for a long time." No adventure the lad. Forget the fact that Benteke likes the goons, he would fit with our other Belgian lads nicely, and would be cheap if Villa get relegated, as expected. Anyone else would be a gamble in the PL so Levy will not pay over £12m for anyone I suspect. That limits who/what we can have so our dream striker is just that... a dream. Lets just back who we have on the pitch and cheer on the 11 selected/playing.
COYS R US
We are never going to splash the cash on a 25m striker, the new stadium is the priority. When Bale goes in the summer, half of whatever the fee is, will be given as kitty, on top of the sales of huddlestone, gomes, dont forget bentleys wages off the books! All this will go towards a Bale replacement and a striker! Levy is thinking long term, and the only way we are going to compete with the top clubs is with a new stadium! If Benteke is available for less than 15m in the summer, that should leave around 20m to get in a replacement for Bale, and any other additions to the squad, maybe a rb, as Walker isnt up to it for me! May not be the end of the world that Defoe is injured, he offers nothing other than goals, which have come few and far between in recent months. May benefit more from Lennon's deliveries with Dempsey who can attack a cross! A win on Saturday would be massive, going into the Hammers' cup final!!! COYS
26Ledley
Jod, I am not trying to be smart, but in answer to the question in the article title, I would suggest one that can score goals, convert chances. I suppose we have to reluctantly accept that Damiao didn't happen for reasons we will never know, it depends totally on who you believe, if indeed you totally believe any of the explanations forthcoming. The fact remains we are at least 1 striker short, a blind man on a galloping horse could see that, and low and behold to prove the point, within a week of the window shutting we have Defoe, if this mornings reports are true, possibly out for two months. We have Adebayor coming back from Africa, in what state of mind and motivation nobody knows yet, God knows he isn't the most reliable anyway, and Kane and/or Obika. It is all very well for AVB to say Spain became World champions without a striker, but they have forward MF players we could only dream about, the same is said of Barca, but they have Messi scoring in 12 successive league games, and 50 a season, for fun. In the EPL, and in the real world, we need a striker to play in every game. The talk of playing Bale centrally is crazy, he is our best chance provider, as well as a fairly regular scorer, without him and Lennon preventing teams playing narrow, where will the chances come from. I find it incredible and unacceptable, that we could go a full transfer window in the situation we are in, with the glaring opportunities available to pull clear of Everton, Arsenal, and Liverpool, and to pressure Chelsea, without a Plan B if the Damiao thing failed, as it was probably destined to do, and without even pursuing the possibility of loaning a striker in until the summer. This is bordering on incompetent negligence by the person/persons charged with the progress of the football club, if indeed progress is intended, or even on the agenda, events would suggest otherwise. There must be a striker in the whole of Europe and Sth America that a competent DOF could have secured, as I say even on loan. Others find them, and sign them, we as usual are nowhere to be seen when the bargains come up, we are too busy chasing "pie in the sky" £20M signings that don't happen, in failed attempts to bolster our chairman's considerable ego.
Frank
How about Jordan Rhodes?? scoring for fun in the championship,i know its a big step up but could be worth a punt
rustyruss67
rhodes would be a good shout actually, vydra at watford isnt bad either, would be good 3rd or 4th choices, still think we need a proven goalscorer at the highest level on top of either of them!
26Ledley
wrong comment,wrong article!sorry my last comment was supposed to be on the other article!Bollox how did it get here!
SilwalYid
Rhodes is a decent shout, although some say he lacks a yard of pace, that may cost him in the PL. The one that I think "got away" was Sturridge. All right the lad has been a bit of a**** at times, he is confident to the point of lary, but watching him, his pace, movement, link up play, and finishing since he has been at Liverpool and getting a game, as a central striker, have been outstanding. The guy really looks a player, one for the future, and at £12M may prove to be a steal. He had been linked with us in the past, but were we anywhere to be seen when he actually came to move, I doubt it, we were too busy chasing Carlos Kickaballs we couldn't get, and were never going to get. Never mind we should be used to it by now, it happens window after window and has done for years. We need a competent DOF and quick. Let our "land management graduate", tend his allotment.
Frank
What an odd question. I guess it's interesting to discuss various types of forwards, but to ask now what sort we should have signed is a bit like getting married and then asking what different woman it should have been. The obvious answer is to get on with the woman you just married. Moping about dreaming of different women won't help the situation you're in. We've go a broken Defoe, a returning mystery in Adebayor, and Obika, and Kane. That's what we've got. And it seems we've got an experiment in turning Bale into Cristiano Ronaldo. That's what we've got. As a dream alternative, how about Greavsie starting together with Alan Shearer in a 4-4-2? Or Pelé together with Maradona? Dreaming about either alternative is as productive as my dreaming about Bridget Bardo or Sophia Loren (both at 22 years old) instead of reconciling the fact that what's in my bed in the morning ain't either of them.
Total knobhead
Frank - don't worry, you're not being smart. With regard to Spain, what exactly has Messi got to do with it ? last time I checked he played for Argentina. Since when has Bale been "our best chance provider" ? he scores plenty but doesn't provide many assists. You appear to be saying we'll take anyone we can get, it doesn't matter how he plays, I just hope AVB has a clearer idea of what he wants.

Jod, I think you should re-read Frank's comment about Messi, he clearly moved on from Spain to talk about Messi at Barcelona! However, moving Bale forward is an option, I would say one of two. The other being Holtby behind Dempsey! Which one would you go for? AVB will try both during the Newcastle game I would think!
26Ledley
The window closed. Get over it. Move along, there's nothing to see here. Same old bag of bones and skin lying of the bed next to us each night. No new dazzling lover to keep the sheets warm. Maybe we can kiss the sexy cousin at the party. Turn Bale into Cristiano Ronaldo. That seems to be his dream anyway. Turn him loose on the pitch in the role he seems so obviously to want. If we make him happy enough as the point of our attack, maybe he'll be inclined to stay a while and maybe he'll drive his sale price up too.

I'm sure it wasn't my missus who told you that, but whoever did was quite right. I was pretty sexy 40 years ago, and now I have to rely on my house on a tropical beach to attract someone to share my bed. We all get old and lose whatever appeal we once had. I can live with what I am, though.

Are you unhappy knobhead? You seem to re-visit the dream of being with another woman quite often! Yes the window has closed, we are discussing the next window, where business gets done, without AS inflated pricing! Levy didn't want to rush into the wrong signing, sending us another step back! I am in full support of Levy, because when I started following Spurs as an 8 year old, I was watching some fairly average players in Nethercott Calderwood and Howells!
26Ledley
"Total knobhead - The normal idea is to figure out the type of player you want BEFORE you sign them. You appear to have a different way of doing it," wrote jod.

Indeed, yes. But to think about it just four days after the window closed isn't thinking about it in advance, it's regretting what we didn't do five days ago. If you think this discussion today is one of planning, I think you don't recognize the obvious. It's about locking the barn door after the horses already left. It's about regretting what we didn't do, not about planning for the next window.

One hopes that DL and AVB and planning today for what to do when the next window opens after this season. But that's not what's happening here now. This is an article of regrets for what we didn't do before the window closed four days ago. It's as useful as sitting in bed regretting I didn't take that bird to bed that I met at the party four nights ago. I didn't, she gone, and that opportunity is gone, too. I mights as well find a way to be OK with what I've got now, even if that's only my right hand for tonight! As we move towards the next window and someone starts a thread in anticipation of a possible upcoming signing of a striker, great. But today's thread and its timing is a thread that will be filled with regrets, and I would rather find something more upbeat. What internet porno can turn me on tonight? At least that might lead to something until I get the next opportunity to meet and real woman and put some moves on her. (And I still can do that sometimes with some success on occasion. lol.)

I have normal swings between mild unhappiness and outrageous ecstacy, 26L, and right now I'm somewhere in between. Thanks for your concern for my level of happiness vs. despair. I appreciate your heartfelt concern.

As to what it means to have a discussion of whom we should have signed in the window so recently closed: OK if you can convince yourself that this is a discussion about the next window in the distant future, but my sense of human nature tells me that such a thread really is about the regrets over the striker we didn't sign.

At the expense of joining peterballb in being attacked as a crypto-sympathizer or worse of ENIC, I also support their decision to sign no one rather than to sign the wrong striker so as to gain a quick, but ultimately unsatisfactory, thrill. To continue the image I've been using, sometimes it's better to wake up alone in the morning than next to someone who looked beautiful at the party last night but in the clear light of the dawn turns out to be missing teeth and covered with running sores. She may have caused me to climax last night, but she might make me want to vomit this morning. How happy are the Chelskums in the light of the morn to have spent that 50 million sterling on a man who cannot play striker successfully any more? How happy are the bin dippers today with the 35 million they spent (on a striker many on this site wanted us to sign a couple of years back)? I'm happy enough that ENIC and DL and AVB didn't sign the wrong skanky striker just for the sake of having a warm bed one cold night. But don't fool yourself to think that a discussion of what we should have signed four days after we failed to sign anyone is anything other than a bag full of regrets over having a couple of lonely nights recently.

...but on Bale being sold. They only way I'd forgive Levy is if he got us James Rodriguez to replace him along with P.E.A.! Wings covered.
dcruzer
Jod I mentioned Messi when I mentioned Barcelona, if you read it properly, I don't need you to tell me he is Argentinian, or indeed anything else regarding football. The reason Bale doesn't get many assists is because messrs Defoe and Adebayor our "strikers" don't get on the en of his crosses and passes. You can only assist if somebody is good enough to convert the chances you provide,so thereby lies our problem. Regarding wanting to sign "anybody will do", you will see by the end of the season, that while Levy was poncing about "trying" to get Damiao for a derisory fee, that Liverpool nicked Sturridge for £12M.

Harry Kane just hit a pearler from 25 yards in top corner v Wet Spam in the U21 today. Spurs win 3-2. Get him on the bench for Saturday as an option to come on. If he is confident you never know. Dean Marney was confident .... ONCE.
