Well would you resign Dimitar Berbatov? Growing excitement amongst Spurs fans, and not a little argument. He could be available in January at reasonable cost as he seems surplus to requirements at Man.Utd. Great player, one of the best in a Spurs shirt in the Premiership years.
He would certainly boost our push for top three this season and provide necessary support for Adebayor. We might not even be vastly out of pocket from the sale of Pavlyuchenko.
So where's the problem? No brainer to some, perhaps to most. However let me present an alternative view.
We are currently third in the Premiership at the top of the London league.
We have achieved this through sound financial management, increasing stability of managers and squad and careful team-building.
We have had four fifth place finishes and a wonderful year in the Champions' League in the past few years and could do it again this year.
We have recruited some outstanding senior players, some talented youngster and retained all of our best players.
How have we achieved this without a shiny new stadium to generate cash?
At the moment we don't pay top whack salaries or pay ridiculous transfer fees.
We don't have owners who have pockets deep enough to satisfy our every whim.
We don't offer the certainty of the Champions' League though the whole situation is becoming much more fluid.
So what exactly is our USP as the marketing boys say? It's certainly not sexy money. It certainly includes the prospect of a brighter future and our reputation currently as possibly the most exciting team in the Premiership. Cue 'The Entertainers'.
We have at root our prestige as a famous club; our reputation as a side that plays good football and our integrity as a fair, honest, stable and well run club. We won't attract the mercenaries and trophy hunters with this pitch but it might appeal to the next level, Modric, Van der Vaart, Berbatov himself at the time. Players who haven't quite hit the headlines or don't fit in where they are.
It will appeal to up and coming stars like Sandro, and to experienced players looking for a safe haven at the end of their careers, Friedel, Gallas and Parker for example. It is enough to retain our current stars, Bale, Lennon,Walker.
So back to the Berbatov dilemma. Some would sign him without a second thought because he's a good player and whatever happened in the past is water under the bridge. Success is all that matters.
Some would sign him with pegs on their noses but sign him nevertheless saying that there's no point cutting off your nose to spite your face.
Some like me would not re-sign him at any price because of the circumstances under which he left. He showed total disrespect to the club, was a destabilising and disruptive influence and to ignore all this undermines the very integrity on which our success relies.
Success must be achieved by the proper means, not bought, not cheated for or else it is a hollow sham and not worth having. I desperately want us to succeed; I pine for Champions' League and for the signing of better and better players and I've waited for it for a lot longer than most of you. But not at any cost or at any price.
Out of touch I may be but so in a sense are our core values, but we don't seem to be doing too badly by them. There are many reasons to dislike Harry but he has restored our pride through success on the pitch.
And he has done all this without losing his dignity, slagging off other managers and referees; without encouraging the team to dispute every decision, or crowd the referee. I take almost as much store by our current position as top of the Fair Play league as I do at our third place in the Premiership.
Success then, achieved the right way, playing good football, with a well integrated and bonded team under Harry's benign dictatorship. Berbatov, great player but poor attitude. You didn't want us when we needed you and there should be no rewards for rejection.
Thanks Dimitar, but no thanks. We made this mistake with Keane and even made him captain. Let's not humiliate ourselves again.
