Sound Offs: The Ledley factor

Posted on 27 June 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

<IMG align=right border=1 src="/news/title_images/ledley1.jpg"> We asked should Ledley fight for a place in midfield or continue to learn his trade at the back… <P class=MsoNormal style="mso-layout-grid-align: none"><B>Adam Hall:</B> <SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Ledley King is a good player! But so is Luke Young! I really think we should not bother signing anyone unless its Cannavaro or some other World-Class replacement! What&rsquo&#59;s the point in having a good reserve team? If they can do it there, why not give them a chance in the first team? Saves &pound&#59;&pound&#59;&pound&#59;! Look how good they were (Doherty, Young, King) but now with Bunjevcevic and Perry, who are a bit older, we have enough experience!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal><B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Scott Hurcombe:</SPAN></B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"> Ledley King should not be groomed into any position, he is a quality player and a growing talent. Let his talent grow naturally and his position will find him rather than him finding his position!!!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal><B>Richard O&rsquo&#59;Donoghue:</B> <SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">I think Ledley should be left to decide which position suits him best in the same way he has been. I know we desperately need to replace Sol, but that has nothing to do with Ledley King. His career should be determined by what he has got to offer in certain areas on the field, not in a desperate attempt to replace Sol. If he is naturally a centre back then great but if he's a midfielder then so be it. Sol Campbell's absence should not interfere with Ledley's promising career. He's his own man with his own football characteristics.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal><B>Nick Bedford:</B> <SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Led King should definitely go back to defence - he can be every bit as good as big Sol was and better. We have enough good midfielders and good young players - Davies, Clemence and some experienced players, namely Gus Poyet.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
