I dont think Atletico will sell him to anyone unless he pulls a Mascherano. Considering Forlan's on and off relationship with the manager Flores this season, Aguero is the only striker that has been saving their hides.

Pretty sure i would be a better goalie than gomes at this point. If you took away all his horrible mistakes spurs could be achieving something more right now. (like a tie vs chelsea or maybe a win).

Spurs have the best midfield in the league depth wise...maybe Man U too.

Up top, Crocuh and Defoe have to be hitting and they havent. VDV isnt really a striker but has had to chip in alot. Pavs needs to go.

Spurs are linked with every striker to hit over 10 goals this season haha, but seriously, players like Forlan, Aguero, Llorente from Spain, RVN from Hamburg, and other EPL players are on the cards and are rumoured to be on the move all the time.

I don't know what kind of depth you're looking for but I cannot see a better midfield than Arsenals in EPL, when Cesc is not injured and on form.

^ I agree, but Tottenham just generally have great midfielder's throughout their squad, and also a good balance of attacking/defensive players - Huddlestone, Jenas, Palacios, Modric, Kanjcar, Sandro, and recently now Pienaa. Also van Der Vart is you classify him as a mid (Sometimes get's a CF role, but I'd say he's an AM).

Update on my team selection: fu** it, I've been a Chelsea supporter since I was 8yrs old, and it's not jumping on the bandwagon if I was that young. Hell, I was the only Chelsea supporter in my primary school I believe. I might of been a bit of a glory hunter as I believe it was around the time that Chelsea got the two-in-a-row that I picked them, but I love the team so fu** what everyone thinks.

If he was gonna go with a team with history, he would be better of supporting nottingham forest.

Hmm, I never had a favorite team until I really started watcing football religiously (like all the televised games available every week). Around the beginning of my high school days that was. I fell in love with Arsenal. Their play at times can be absolute magic, at others, so heart wrenchingly disappointing. I started following them around early 07, so I didn't hop on to the invincibles band wagon. Throughout these last 4, and actually, last 6 years, they have yet to win a piece of silverware, but they will be my favorite team regardless. This season may have been the most disappointing one yet IMO.

Obviously being a Gunner, I can't support any other English side hahaha. I do have a team that I 'like' but not necessarily support, from each of the major leagues. FC Dallas, as they are from my hometown (Went to almost all of their home games last year before they made it to the MLS Cup Final, which was BS). From Germany, I've liked Dortmund, long before this season lol, I still have some of their Nike branded training gear. For some reason, I have a soft spot for Atletico Madrid, yet I also like Real. Quite terribly, they are heated rivals, but I've visited both of their stadiums and been to a RM game, so I feel like I have some sentimental connection (If that means anything for someone who doesn't live in Europe). I liked Juventus from their glory days before the Calciopolli Scandal, Del Piero and Nedved at their best :) Now they are quite sh*t, a disgrace. Obviously, in International competitions, Arsenal is my team 100%. I guess you could say, I just like watching those teams in their respective leagues.
