Haikus for Luka

Luka, we loved you
But now you 'dream' of Chelsea
Avoid dark alleys

Don't leave us Luka
And if you do, don't go there
Anywhere but there

Luka on a yacht
Dreams of Chelsea and money
Levy wakes him up

Yep, it's come to this. Our summer is still eerily quiet. Brad Friedel is the only addition to the squad and has announced himself by flapping hopelessly at an innocuous cross-shot and conceding an embarrassing, unnecessary goal. Training with Gomes was always a bad idea.

Our South African tour finally produced a victory, but no real signs of life and hopefully no clues as to the line-up or level of ambition for next year.

From the outside, it looks like Spurs are sleep-walking through the close season.

Behind the scenes, please God, we're bustling and bullish and about to announce the signing of two top quality strikers, one smart and silky centre back - and possibly Arjen Robben as a bit of a billy bonus. By Friday, please.

Next week, Gareth Bale limericks. 'There once was a winger from Wales...'

    Don't forget, Coulibaly!

    It's all been very underwhelming thus far. I fear only one stiker will be added to Pav, Crouch and Defoe. It's not enough, especially if Modric goes.

    Another season of missed opportunities and mellow unfruitfulness awaits I fear. Still 5th or 6th ain't so bad is it!!!

  2. It's not awful, no, it's just... depressing.

    I agree, we seem to have got to somewhere near the top of the hill since the mid 200s and then fallen down again.

    We've blown it. There I've said it!

  4. Is it blasphemy to suggest that one of those strikers could be an unlovable and to remain unnamed Togolese diva who once played for the dark side? If so, I meant Kanu, mistaking his nationality and forgetting he's 72 years old.
