Tottenham and the story of their goal keepers has been a muddled business in recent seasons. Robbo barrel rolled out of the England rankings and up to Blackburn.
Gomes is undoubtedly a class keeper, but one that has had to play behind a veritable revolving door of defenders. Then Carlo Cudicini was involved in …a motorcycle accident of all things. Marvellous.
Tottenham’s new number two will be Spartak Moscow’s Stipe Pletikosa. Who? Well he’s the guy who failed a medical at Tottenham last month.
So what’s the good news? Well, he’s Croatian. And we do like a nice Croatian at Tottenham, you know. He’s also 31 and I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that all these young goalies are all well and good, but very few amount to much.
