Im pleased to see Ledley call it a day, probably should of done it before the start of last season, then we might of got Cahill or Samba..It's a shame how his career was ruined by injury, as I believe he had the potential to be one of the best CBs in the world. One of the few English player's to play with his brain in gear, and dont know the stats, but must of had one of the best disiplinary record's for games played than any defender. I think we do need another CB as I dont think Khumalo will be playing for us, because Imo, he was bought as a commercial tool, considering our links to South Africa, rather than a serious player purchase
For me Ledley will always be a club Icon and a living Legend.
I've heard he will stay at the club in an ambassador role, I don't know what that means but I hope he will be more involved than the occasional after dinner speech or doing community stuff, IMO he should be used to help develop our defence- Surely Caulker can learn from him?
With regards to the CB's situation- I hope Gallas and Bassong move on- That'll leave us with Dawson-Caulker-Jan-Unit, as Khamolu has already joined PAOK on loan- Remmah I agree, he was a marketing tool. With only 4 CB's, I'd want one more at least, possibly another LB/RB would be ideal.
I hope the majority of our dealing will be done soon, as JL points out, we will be off to USA soon and It'd be better if all 2012-13 players were in tow!

my favourite all time spurs player has just retired!
king, legend, icon, 1 team man etc.
glad the club have kept him on.
but as joe said, he would make a great defensive coach.
imagine him working with players like caulker but also with any of our youth team defenders.
khamolu will never play for us. & if he does, we must be in huge trouble to need to play him. on loan anyway.
bassong isnt good enough for us. gallas is on his last legs & isnt good enough for us anymore. he would do well for someone like west ham.
im happy with the 4 we got. but 1 more would do nicely.
maybe samba? haangeland?
id try to do a cheeky players swap for haangeland.
mr jol, we will give u bentley,bassong & gomes for haangeland.
its daylight robbery! we must be out of our minds.
Re disciplinary, apparently he got 10 yellows over all games (326 appearances) and 8 yellows in in the prem (268 appearances). He's never been sent off for Spurs (apparently - I thought I remembered it happening once).
Genuinely feel sad about it, I've thought for a while it'd be for the best for his health to retire, but still sad to see it finally happen. Whadda guy.
