It'd be a shame to see him go but I think they have enough cover, I like Gylfi a lot, and you have to let AVB get the team he wants.  He's hopefully there for the long haul, give him some money and let him build.

A striker or two would be good too, right? Seems like only a matter of time until Adebayor throws a fit.

You're probably right, unfortunately.  Damiao perhaps?

Could AVB make Edin Dzeko into the player he once was? That guy was pretty unbelievable for a bit. Utterly rubbish now, though.

It'd be a bummer to see another US keeper bounced from the Lane.  The reason I became a fan of Spurs was Kasey Keller, but Lloris would probably be a long-term upgrade.

Dembele would be nice, Dzeko would hopefully find his scoring boots again.

FC Pant Fun just made a couple moves -- might have 11 who actually play this week.

Newbridge AFC (The Mighty 'Bridge) is biding its time. In hindsight, though, picking a Utd striker who wasn't Van Persie or Rooney was perhaps the stupidest move possible, however considering RVP's made out of balsa wood and Rooney has a hole in his leg, WHO KNOWS?

and Lloris is a super goalie, although I have a weird soft spot for US footballers. Dempsey, Keller, Friedel, Howard, Reyna, Donovan, McBride. dunno why, just like them is all.

Looks like Friedel's streak is coming to an end.  I didn't see any news about him going to another squad.

I was travelling and missed the news about Dempsey until this morning.  Wow!  Now I may have a few too many Spurs on my fantasy team!

As both an American and a relatively recent Spurs fan (I've been following them for about three seasons now) I'm very happy with the Dempsey move. Although to be honest, I thought the way he was acting at Fulham there was completely classless.

Agreed. But 90-something % of soccer players are completely classless, so it's not a shock. I wish it were different but when you take working class kids, basically take them out of education from the age of 13 and make them multi-millionaires even if they are mediocre it's to be expected. (this is the British players I'm talking about.)

I was also really surprised by his attitude.  I'm thinking that maybe he and Jol had a bit of a set-to.

A lot of people jumped on that Spurs bandwagon toward the end of the season, but they couldn't deliver.  Duncan is getting up there - still productive, but he can't carry a team through the playoffs like he used to.

Wait, what's a Totten Ham?
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

It's kind of like a portable luncheon meat.  It's a long O sound.

Transfer window doesn't close until after the EPL starts, then the interlull comes 3 or 4 rounds in.  Nothing like breaking up the cohesion and momentum!

That earns you a point.
