Checked out Spurs new kit? Created by Under Armour we rather like its retro 60s feel. Nevertheless the launch did provide a few clues as to what may or may not be going on at the Lane.

The only player who looked comfortable and was enjoying himself at the launch was Michael Dawson. From this I guess not only is he going nowhere this summer, but that he is overjoyed to be staying at Spurs.

Conversely though Gareth Bale looked very glum. I guess this could be because as Spurs’ star attraction he has no choice but to face the media today whether he likes it or not. However Spurs fans are already reading a huge amount into his appearance. Does modeling the new kit mean that he will still be a Spurs player come the end of August as some Tottenham fans are suggesting?

Well maybe, but then Spurs fans would do well to take a peek at this. For in May 2012 at the Arsenal kit launch for that season look who is ¬†centre stage! A player who would never wear that shirt in a competitive game. So who knows… I think he will stay, but there is still over a month and half of the window to go.

And as for Jermain Defoe he was being hounded by rather serious sports journalists, possibly desperate to get a word on all those Defoe to Stoke rumours that were circulating yesterday.
