Good afternoon Mouseketeers.
Firstly a belated apology to the devoted members of the congregation still desperately waiting for the next Hotspur’s Half Hour.
Unfortunately our producer is incapacitated with a a particularly severe dose of our most vile enemy, gout. And gout where he has it is no laughing matter.
Thanks to the excellent Spurs centric journalist, Ben Pearce (
@BenPearceSpurs) we have some insights into wot is occurring inside the football club known to millions as, ‘that gaff up the road from Chick King.’
AVB on Damiao:
It’s extremely difficult that he’s going to join Tottenham. It’s extremely unlikely that he will play for Tottenham.”
AVB also ruled out a move for Montpellier’s Younes Belhanda and a move for William Gallas – but he said Livermore could be loaned out.
AVB on ‘the Redknapp factor’ on Saturday: “It’s a big advantage. In the end when you manager a club you know your players v well…”
AVB on Gallas: “He’s away on recovery in a French clinic that we use. He won’t be available for this weekend.”
AVB says Holtby will arrive in the summer as originally planne “We’re not looking to further strengthen our midfield at the moment.”
AVB on Adebayor comments:
The conversations that I had with the player are obviously private and not for discussion …I’ve told him we’ve been waiting for his decision patiently & if he has to go he goes, & if he stays he stays. End of the story”
