    I wonder if we are still looking at him as a potential loan striker.

    He scored six goals today for Spurs in a friendly with Charlton so would appear to be fit again.

    Don't know much about him.

      6 goals is impressive. A few months ago most on here were against him signing. I dont really know enough about him to have an opinion.

      Would be a good loan option for 2/3 months IMO. I'm assuming Lita has gone back? His loan was only till January right? That leaves us with only Barnes and Ulloa as strikers and CMS supposedly back end of this month, but none of us know when he'll be match fit..

      A few month loan won't do us any harm, back up on the bench will be needed aswell as competition for places. This may also allow Oscar to play Ulloa and Barnes together which I suspect he'd be reluctant to do without backup on the bench. Experience for him too, I expect he'd get minutes off the bench a few games, and probably start the 4th Round FA Cup game.

      Think its definitely worth a look for a while assuming it won't cost too much, plus we get a look if he's any good towards possibly signing him in the summer. All depends on what Spurs want I'd guess.

      To score 6 in a single game would surely suggest he's fit? Surely you couldn't trouble a back 4 that much if you weren't? Also another point, he's quite pacey isn't he? Something we don't have an option for upfront currently..

      I guess how impressive the six goals were depends on who else was in the Spurs team. They have quite a few decent midfielders etc who might be a bit too good for a Charlton 11...

      Certainly not a weak Spurs team - Lewis Holtby, Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Capoue all featured.

      Spurs XI: Miles, Fredericks (Stewart 57), Smith, Capoue, Veljkovic, Fryers, Lamela (McEvoy 57), Holtby, Obika, Kane (Coulibaly 57), Chadli.

      Should also be pointed out the score was Spurs 10-6 Charlton.

      I asked a spurs friend a few months back about Obika when he was on the radar then. he knows his stuff spurs wise and said Obika could "do a job" championship wise but wasn't really prem class. From what he said it sounded that he could have been very useful for us when Ulloa was injured as he is apparently excellent at holding the ball up and setting up plays. He did add however that by now someone should have come in for Obika and that many clubs have looked at him and been unconvinced so there's clearly something in his play that people are unsure about.
