Harry's "Special One"

So then, we've all heard Harry come out and say that there won't be too many changes and that there may be "one special signing that will take the club to the next level".

So you can imagine my confusion when we've got the likes of Real Madrid's Raul and City's Craig Bellamy linked with us.

Let's get something straight, I personally wouldn't mind either player joining up with the squad as both have something to offer, especially with Raul's Champion's League experience. And contrary to popular belief, Raul does speak perfect English, as those who have heard The Guardian's Spain-based journalist and Spurs fan, Sid Lowe, interview Raul, can attest to.

Craig Bellamy offers something different. Unfortunately, his unpredictability comes as part of the package. I would say that a majority of sides would want a happy Bellamy in their dressing room. When the coin is turned, no side want an unhappy Craig, for he has the uncanny ability of being able to turn all and sundry 360.

So far, the above mentioned players aren't in the "special signings" category, are they?

If we are to review our current squad, I personally can't see any position, other than in central midfield, being filled.

Talking of central midfield; Sandro will join us in August, but he'll need time to settle and I can't see him being an asset next season. Therefore, I do feel that a commanding central midfielder is needed, preferably with Champion's League experience.

If you read this blog regularly, you'll know my thoughts on bringing in Joe Cole. I just can't see him fitting in anywhere without disrupting the apple cart.

I must have said it a thousand times, but Moussa Sissoko is a fantastic player. If we're to get him, Harry and Daniel are going to have to move fast, for if the rumours doing the rounds in the New Library are anything to go by, Wenger is sniffing around the Toulouse box-to-box midfielder.

Whatever happens, I am sure the close season will see us linked to basically everyone. But as is the case with our manager, he already knows who he wants to bring in.
