I'm not deniying that hes a good player who would slot in the team, just feel that we have more chance for Diarra who is also the sort of player we could really do with. Also its all going to come down to money with a player like Ireland as hes not one of those loyal players who will join a team because of history etc, remember when he lied about his nan dying cos he didn't want to play for Ireland? wouldn't really want a player like that at spurs!
Diarra wants money and citeh want Diarra...so as far as us having more chance of getting him than Ireland, I'll have to disagree AR. The only thing we have going for us in the Diarra sweepstakes is Harry Redknapp, and I'm not sure that that's going to be enough. Who knows Ireland might end up being surplus if they get Diarra.
I caught a bit of their game last night, and some of their link up play was sublime, but made to look so by a ball chasing midfield, hopefully our boys know a bit better and keep their heads up to break up some of their off the ball movement.
