While Tottenham’s transfer window is doing a good impression of someone who is housebound, work closer to home begins in earnest today for three players who have been out of action for some considerable time.
Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga, together with the lesser spotted Oliver Skipp are all scheduled to shake off the cobwebs at Hotspur Way today according to The Athletic‘s Charlie Eccleshare (£).
Skipp’s return is particularly welcome, but I take a view that many fans have fallen into the trap of somewhat immortalising the guy during his prolonged absence. A note of caution here, that the lad was only ever useful in my opinion, and now we will need to see how he responds to the setbacks of being sidelined and having undertaken surgery.
Ollie’s pelvis injury was no nose bleed, and the 21-year-old hasn’t kicked a ball in anger in 3 months.
Quite what we get from Doherty and Tanganga remains to be seen; the Irishman appeared to be showing some signs of improvement, whereas the Englishman had lost his way a little. Hopefully, a fresh start to a new campaign that includes Champions League football will boost everyone’s morale.
