Wish List 2

Posted on 8 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).

The name of Owen Hargreaves crops up a number of times in the latest batch of your suggestions for Spurs transfer targets. Having just lifted the European Cup, it is likely the Canadian-born starlet fall into the 'untouchable' category at the moment. His Bayern Munich team-mate Steffen Effenberg also features in quite a few of your shopping baskets.

Emmanuel Petit and his Barcelona sidekick Pepe Guardiola are also strongly fancied - as is livewire Everton Striker Francis Jeffers.

Luke Hatfield, South Africa: Contra(Deportivo Alaves), Gustavo Poyet (Chelsea), Shevchenko (AC Milan), Kieron Dyer (Newcastle), Frank Lampard (West Ham).

Neil Allison, West Wycombe: Buy Butt, Lampard and Euell.

David Hambly, Collumpton: buy Ginola, buy Southgate, buy Jan Koller, buy Sheringham, buy Petit.

Barry Clingham, Luton: Bring David Ginola back where he belongs.

Anthony Ashton, East Finchley: Bixente Lizarazu, Steffen Effenberg, Kevin Phillips.

Richard Lea, London: Andrei Schevchenko, Benito Carbone, Guardiola.

Liam Gallagher, Gloucester: I think that Tottenham should put a bid in for either Jordi Cryuff or Karel Porborsky. With the millions you have to spend on players you should bring in some class talent. If Sol Campbell does leave the club we should buy Birmingham central defender Darren Purse, he has immense talent and awareness - he and Perry would make a great team.

Andy Stratford: A new midfield of Butt, Effenberg and Poyet.

Terry Ibrahim, Enfield: Zenden, Benito Carbone, Owen Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Christian Ziege (Liverpool), Jordi Cryuff (Alaves).

Robert Blackman, Middlesex: Frank Lampard, we need a playmaker in midfield. Emmanuel Petit, he would fit the bill as a playmaker and he was outstanding playing for them. Robbie Fowler, if available, would be an ideal predator. Teddy Sheringham, we should never have allowed him to go on a contract dispute of whether a 5 or 4 year deal should be signed. Do not sign Christian Ziege, he is overrated and weak defensively. How about Gustavo Poyet, he always looks threatening against us, perhaps he could end the Chelsea hoodoo? Obviously we would love to see Michael Owen but perhaps this is only dreamland?

Colin Wright: Effenburg, Shevchenko, Petit, Zenden, Jeffers, Contra.

Robert Tamarro, Woodford Green: Sol Campbell to stay. Juan Veron in midfield. Robbie Fowler up front with Sergei.

Steve Clare, Brackley: Andrei Shevchenko, Fernando Morientes, Manu Petit, Robbie Fowler, Michael Ball, Francis Jeffers.

Samuel Mansell, Horley, Surrey: 10 players Spurs should enquire about: 1 Boujawin Zenden — Barcelona, 2 Mustapha Hadji — Coventry, 3 Frank Lampard - West Ham, 4 Steffen Effenberg — B Munich, 5 Francesco Coco - AC Milan, 6 Gianni Commandini - AC Milan, 7 Jose Mari - AC Milan, 8 Owen Hargreaves — B Munich, 9 Christian Chivu — Ajax, 10 Jason Koumas — Tranmere.

Eamon Dolan, Salins: David Ginola & Teddy to return.

Stathi Marneros: Steffen Effenberg, Andriy Shevchenko (a dream not a wish, I admit), Boudewin Zenden, Gareth Southgate, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Oliver Bierhoff, Christian Ziege.

Andy Hoare, Bedford: An Ardiles or Klinsmann-type signing - one that sends out the right message to our fans and football in general that we are back.

Paul Betteridge, Basildon: Shevshenko, Zenden, Fowler, Luis Enrique, Ehiogu, Effenburg.

John Cooper, Barnet: I think the ambition of the Rebrov signing, was the sign of a club wanting to go places. It is worth spending that little bit more and getting a world class player rather than risking buying a shrewd player, which is all Spurs seems to have done in recent history. Pay the £20m for Ronaldo, Shevchenko - because in the long run, it pays off.

Sumeer Aggarwal, Hounslow: Spurs should buy Frank Lampard, Koumas (from Tranmere), Guardiola and Robbie Fowler. They should enquire about Andy Johnstone (from Birmingham).

Glynn Busson, Perth WA: Keep Sol and Darren, sell Thatcher, bring in Effenberg, Lizerazu and Petit. Bring back Ginola.

Ben Hamp: Bobby Zamora (Brighton) and Hassan Kachloul (Southampton).

Andrew Smith, Norwich: Petit, Guardiola, Effenburg, Lizarazu, Bierhoff, Southgate.

Rob Sherman, London: Oliver Bierhoff, Zenden, Southgate, Owen Hargreaves.

Thomas Waplington, Reading: I think Spurs should take me on trial for a while. I play for Maidenhead United.

Andrew Wooff: Buy Nicky Butt and Guardiola. Give the youngsters a go like Davies.
