Word is just in from our Tottenham monitoring man in a Greasy Spoon near Enfield on his seventh cup of tea and seventeenth Regal this morning, is that George Owu has just completed a short trial period with the boys from White Hart Lane.
George Ooo? I hear you cry as one. A household name in downtown Ghana, a legend in his own lounge suit in the enlightened parts of Egypt. No, I’ve never heard of him either. But Tottenham fans could well get to know him soon.
I can reveal that he sports a moustache.
Given Gomes’ goatee at Elland Road on Wednesday night, this could be a preemptive strike by the Brazilian to demonstrate to Tottenham supremo Redknapp that if it comes down to a facial ‘Hair Off’, then he’s ready to battle it out.
The respected IM Scouting website recently carried a comment on the Ghanian goalie saying that he ‘occasionally lacks concentration’.
He’ll fit in well at Tottenham who’s latin motto translates as Dare To Fail.
