Bad News just in that Ledley King has suffered yet another setback in his neverending return to full fitness.
Before the Long Live The King Brigade arrive with the usual 'how dare you make him injured with your made up stories 'es da best ov da very best' schtick... Let me point out I understand who he is and I would love him to return as soon as humanly possible. But it's WAKEY WAKEY TIME and we have to face the reality of the situation.
The reality is that Tottenham will be without him 'til nigh on Christmas and even before this latest setback it was only anticipated that he'd contribute for maybe two dozen games this season anyway...
Time for Tottenham to bite the bullet and stop acting like he's an active member of the squad. The defence at WHL is an abysmal afterthought. Players out of postion and rubbish as standbys. Gardner couldn't fetch £2 million on the open market IF he made the medical. Rocha is a classic example of buy cheap, buy twice.
Dawson and Kaboul are on their way to greatness. Lee is a high achieving average player. Bale may well yet be a winger. Injuries to one of them sends us into an embarrassing spiral of mend and make do.
Not good enough. Tottenham need to uncross their fingers on the whole King issue and open the envelope marked Plan B.
