Damião Now Brown Cow

boboSo Deadline Day passed us by without major incident; instead of actually buying a new striker, Daniel Levy engineered the cunning plan to write a few names on a piece of paper, straighten his tie, then go for a nice dinner. If I’m honest it’s not the approach I would’ve gone for but the very fact that I’m not in charge of a football club can only be regarded as a good thing.

Will it prove to be a negligible oversight; to leave our strikeforce with so little meat on its bones? Perhaps, but as Villas-Boas made the point in the aftermath of Yellow Tickertape Thursday, there would be no use Spurs siphoning bundles of cash into Internacional’s coffers- a club by their own admission not desperate to sell- if the fallout sees us swimming in financial shark-infested-waters.

What’s more, let’s be honest, I’d wager the average kickball enthusiast hasn’t seen more than a few YouTube clips of Leandro Damião, and, up until just 2008, the lad was playing the Brazilian equivalent of Sunday League football. So, you know, he’s probably not that good anyway? Right? Huh, guys?

Moving quickly on…

As if aware that some disappointed Tottenham fans might need a quick antidote for those Deadline Day Blues, Lewis Holtby has wandered into our lives and made the bad stuff go away. Obviously we should all play it super cool as to not come across too keen BUT I AM TOTALLY GETTING THIS GUY’S NAME TATTOOED ON MY ARM and we certainly shouldn’t get carried away with one-hundred-odd minutes of delightful football. Definitely not.

Elsewhere, Bale’s getting the hang of this kicking the ball in the goal lark. Two games in a row now the Welshman has left defenders huffing on vapour trails before kerbusting it in the top/middle-ish corner. Amassing vital points in the process.

Even with Defoe sidelined, if there’s not enough goals between Bale, Holtby, Dempsey, Lennon, Dembele and Adebayor, then we really should have a good long look at ourselves in the mirror. And if you’re Lewis Holtby, well, that wouldn’t be too much of a chore, would it?

    Let’s just hope and pray that there are goals within this lot, Bale, definitely, Ade, should be, Dempsey chips in but I don’t want to hang my hat on the rest scoring the goals we need.
    Levy will be the one praying that we come through this season finishing in the coveted 4th (3rd!?) position or the blame will squarely be laid at his door. We’ve been crying out for the top striker since Berbatov left and after several patch jobs no amount of plasters and gaffer tape will end up holding this together if we fail.
    Wrap Bale up in cotton wool please, I’d like him to play a total of 3 minutes for wales tonight before a tactical substitution

    Well done WFRF: Good to see there are at least two of us, outside of Leandro and his immediate family, who can pronounce his name correctly.

    And that boy Holtby’s hotter than the surface of the sun.

    His name in English means ‘Damian’ which I think is a worry. Spawn of Satan, former DofF: take your pick it’s bad news.
