With the doors of the summer transfer window now firmly slammed shut, Premier League clubs up and down the land have now been forced to wake up to the cold hard fact that they will have to wait until January at the earliest to address any squad shortfalls.
Yes Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham United, we are looking at you regarding the lack of striking reinforcements!
Having reluctantly temporarily dismantled our giant projector screen facility that was keeping our tavern regulars up to date during the frantic transfer window, our attentions have now been switched to some of the other pressing issues in the Premier League.
With the England national team having received a lot of flak in recent weeks regarding a drab World Cup qualifying campaign – notably from Gary Lineker – we try and lighten the mood by looking towards a bright future for the Three Lions and asking readers to select the ‘most promising English talent in the Premier League’.
Born again Tottenham star Andros Townsend is currently leading the nine-man poll with 43% of the vote leaving Everton’s up and coming star Ross Barkley in second place with 18% of the vote and Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere currently taking the bronze medal with 13%.
With Southampton’s Luke Shaw, Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, Norwich City’s Nathan Redmond and Manchester United pair Wilfried Zaha and Phil Jones making up the nine-man list, register your vote now to see your favourite English starlet come out on top!
To register your all important vote, simply visit the Transfer Tavern’s home page, scroll to the bottom right hand corner, click in the circle of the player you are selecting as the ‘most promising’ and hit vote!
Voting will close at 09:00am on Monday 30th September.
