Spuds hope to unearth Gamst - AGAIN!

Spuds hope to unearth Gamst - AGAIN!

BomBom on the latest reported Tottenham Hotspur bid to prise Morten Gamst Pedersen away from Blackburn Rovers' grip.

Reports in newspapers today are indicating that dour old Martin Jol and his Spuds team are preparing to test Mark Hughes' resolve with a bid for Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Whilst this has been long rumoured in the media and the story refuses to die away, Pedersen signed a long-term deal last summer and if indeed Rovers were to consider selling the free kick king of the Premier League it would be for a very hefty premium.

Their apparent need for a left sided midfielder intensified today when the next Portuguese superkid and rumoured Spuds target Nani has all but signed for Manchester USA.

Given this purported transfer and its apparent monetary value (apparently between £15 and £20 Million) for a raw talent, can a price be put on Pedersen as the finished article??

Whether Rovers Cash in on Pedersen will be an intriguing issue to monitor, although, with a fully fit squad and minor tinkering, could see Sparky and Rovers pressing Spuds for one of the top 4 positions next season.

Don't hold your breath guys and gals!

This just won't go away will it. Personally I think MGP should give it another year to see how far Spurs pull away from Rovers (if indeed they do!) then decide what he is doing in the summer of 2008.

It would be a sideways step for MGP,we'd gladly take him at the Villa though.The gap between the teams in 5th - 11th is not enough to really seperate us.I also think yez should sell McCarthy while yez can still get a good price for him.And Its a bit off the subject but would Blackburn be willing to pay 12 mil for Bellamy?as it seems Villa and Blackburn are the two sides in for him.

Totally agree that there isn't too much between the top dozen clubs (the top four aside, and even some of these aren't as far ahead of others as we may think!) so it wouldn't be a forward move, not yet anyway. Let's see how Spurs progress over the next season. I WOULDN'T want Rovers to pay £12 million and don't think we would, personally I think £6 million is more than enough!

not much difference between 5 and 11th?? If you say so!
01/06/2007 00:23:00
I hope no one pays the 10-12 mil for Bellamy,I don't think MGP will join anyone outside the top 4,His fee would be very expensive if he did.Hughes knows what he's doing yous will be alright.

Blackburn = Top 4? Do me a favour! And also, MGP = finished article? I think not! Blimey. Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story.

typical pathetic Northerners .. lets be clear on one thing, Spurs have a tradition .. oops you lot will not know what that means ( the fluke was the TEAM Jack Built !). We are clearly moving forward, unlike you lot .. sorry its the InterTOTO for u lot. If this lad wants to progress, come on down to the Nations Capital and join the elite .. CoYS ! .. McCathery will be gone as well !

LOL guySpur, if hes not the finished article, why on earth would Jol want him then? Hes been a great defensive addition this year but his attacking side of his game suffered as a result, when he is on form there are very few in the Prem that can match him for accuracy of crosses and set pieces, go look at the goal Benni scored against the spuds the last but one game of the season, get it? you get it!
01/06/2007 00:36:00
cant see why hed want to got to spurs anyway, i think if he and some other stay and we bring one or two in, we could be heading for the top 5/6 ?
01/06/2007 01:11:00
could be heading for top 5 or 6, or heading for top 4... hmmmm i know which 1 i'd choose!
