Spurs have the best balance in attack in my opinion. With Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov, Jermaine Defoe, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon, and Didier Zokora at their disposal, the Spurs show some awe inspiring firepower. Spurs finished strong last season due to their match play upfront and in Berbatov a star was born. It was the injuries to their defense and indifferent form in the left back position that slowed them down leaving them vulnerable. They are close to jettisoning the disgruntled Mido to Fulham and have signed on Gareth Bale who will bolster the left back position.
So why on earth would the Spurs splurge 16-17 million pounds on Darren Bent? There is talk that if Bent goes to the Spurs then Defoe will be shipped to Pompey or to another club. I saw a Defoe coming into his own this season. He Combined well with Berbatov during Keane's injury and scored 10 goals. Bent would be better off at Newcastle where Owen is threatening to leave or at Liverpool in case the Fernando Torres bid falls through.
