Ed are spurs really in trouble as their results suggest or is it all down just to luck / injuries / suspensions. If so then is the transfer team looking to get some folks in to rectify this in January?

{Ed002's Note - Spurs have only lost one game so far so it is not that bad. January is not the ideal time to be making changes as clubs don't want to sell and those players who are playing in European competition will want to continue. It has not stopped Spurs looking at a number of players and I suspect offers will be made.}

Go to think a creative midfield player, maybe Isco, is getting some serious consideration.

Thanks Ed002! Spurs have looked sluggish and out of ideas many times, but maybe that's just down to injuries to key players and lack of fitness of others.

We have exactly the same points, wins, draws and loses as last season after 13 games. The difference being that this season we have been hit by injuries and suspensions. We have the best back 4 and goalkeeper set up in the league (when fully fit) , and one of the most leathal strikers around. We will be fine!

29 Nov 2016 23:01:04
We will be fine - but Chelski, Liverpool and City are all better than last season. Us being the same as last year will leave us on the outside this season.

Yellow card, I guess you are predicting top 4 then?

30 Nov 2016 16:33:10
Explain that assumption oddbod, please.

I said 3 teams in my opinion are better than last season . I also said I expect us to be on the outside this season.

How do I suggest I expect us to be Top 4 this season?

Agree0 Disagree0

WILL LEAVE US ON THE OUTSIDE THIS SEASON.! What is so hard to understand about that comment Oddbod. That translates to outside the top 4.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Dec 2016 17:19:32
You finished 3rd last year and above those teams, and you said they are now better than last year, so who else will you finish below than, as you say you are better than Arsenal, which means you are the 4th team, or are you finally admitting Arsenal are better!

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Dec 2016 22:49:00
Spurs will finish 3rd behind Chelsea and Man City. Arsenal 4th, Manchester United 5th and Liverpool 6th.

Arsenal are weak without Sanchez even more than Spurs without Kane. Careful Gunnerbod, Kane is only just back to fitness and Alderweireld is back for the United game.

Unlike Arsenal we have spent less NET than almost every single Premiership club, and we might look different if Tielemans and Dembele were to sign in January.

So keep gloating and looking at Spurs, soon you will be out of the Champions League as embarrassingly as us, you'll play kids in the FA Cup and get knocked out like the League Cup, and you'll finish 4th for another trophy less year of failure after spending fortunes.

Soon we will have a bigger and better stadium than Arsenal, and when we have the additional revenue to increase our wage structure, you will see how good we can be.

Lastly please don't write off a billionaire takeover of grand proportions. Forget Abrahimovuch, the Saudis are coming!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2016 13:57:28
Oracle, Arsenal are week without out Sanchez even more than Spurs are without Kane? Last year Sanchez played 28 premier league games, Kane played 38 premier league games and Arsenal finished above Spurs! So how did you work that out then?

We have scored 10 goals less then any of the other top teams, drawn More games then any other game n the premiership and conceded the least number of goals.
That tells us that our defence and midfield (defensive part) are fine.

Our problem lies in our creative ( or lack of creative ) midfield. Eriksen is not the answer. Has the odd ( very odd) great game but more often then not he is useless. We need a top class midfield schemer who can control games on a consistent basis. With a player like that, the goals will start to flow.

Jansen is being slated for not scoring. Kane was not scoring either before he got injured. Last year Kane created and scored a lot of his goals. 'This year that is not happening and we are struggling.

Can't expect Jansen to make and score goals. How many giltedged chances has he missed? I believe he will be a good striker when we start creating chances for him. My New Years wish, sign Isco!

Take out Hugo, Toby A and Harold, we are average. Led by an average manager who specialises in drawing football matches with a style that is boring, defensive, slow, narrow and full of sideways passing. When he does use a plan B its going from 4231 to 4141, and when he brakes our transfer record its for Moussa Sissoko. A very overrated manager.

Agree4 Disagree4

Bit over the top there lucas. You guys have played some much nicer football under poch and he's drastically improved your team and mentality. I remember under villas boas you lot would lose games 6-1 to city now you guys have played them off the park the last couple of meetings. For the amount poch has spent and the fairly short time he's been with you lot he's done a superb job, definitely made improvements under him so to call him over rated is pretty unfair.

Agree2 Disagree2

30 Oct 2016 19:24:31
Yes we avent been great I agree but really. already the MoPo haters are out. We started the season without Dembele, probably our chief creator and tormentor last season. He comes back and hets injured then comes back again, our top scorer for 2 seasons is out injured and our best defended then gets injured. I think we are in pretty good shape at the moment with very good players to return not only from injury but also to form. Last year on here MoPo was a god. Now we are faultering slighty he has to go. Get behind the team through good and bad. There will be more good times than bad while MoPo is here. Janssen will score goals, but I do agree we need a consistent creative midfielder to break up stubborn defences. The reason we are drawing games is because teams realise how good we are and defend deep. That is a compliment to us, we just have to find away around that. When teams try to match us (like Man City) we can beat anyone but the lesser teams who sit deep and tuck in and play on the counter we have to find a way to break them down.

COYS In MoPo we trust.

Agree1 Disagree1

Absolutely disgraceful criticising Poch and saying we are average, some people obviously have very short memories.

When you aren't playing well but you still don't get beat you are doing something right, I completely agree with THFC4EVER in that teams are sitting back at defending against Spurs and that is a sign that the team is feared, I too am a believer that Ericsson is overrated and lacks the pace and guile to open up a packed defence. would Isco be the answer? Possibly.

Ultimately I'm confident that once Kane returns and starts scoring the wins will come, but in the meantime drawing games is far better than getting beaten.
Have faith guys.

Lucas, I don't know what team you've been watching for the last few seasons, remember when the so called big 4 we're put 4 and 5's past us. That has now been fixed, we play some great football, For a team that's not firing on all cylinders at the minute and we're still up there with the teams who have spent millions we're in a pretty good position wouldn't you agree.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Nov 2016 14:56:37
Carnt believe mopo I is getting stick think were playing quite well always room for improvement, undefeated and generally ticking over, think Janssen will come good wingers need to deliver more for him and thankfully that Chelsea reserve batsy wotever his name is swerved us,

03 Nov 2016 07:17:45
Interesting post Pauli but stating those stats does not necessarily mean your conclusion is correct. It could merely mean that Spurs are becoming a first and foremost more defensive minded team. Similarly if a team goes all out attack - Kevin Keegan's Newcastle and most recently Klopp's Liverpool - then they are more than likely to concede more goals. That does not mean that, despite what some might say, they have the worst defenders of the top teams. One thing for sure for me as a neutral in the Premiership camp (my team I won't name but are League 1) is that I enjoy / enjoyed watching the latterly mentioned teams and am getting rather bored with Spurs and Man in particular this season. Sorry!

I pulled up at traffic lights in the Subaru in Enfield when there was a better looking car next to me, as I looked it was Harry Kane so I wound down the window and asked him when he's back. He told me he's in full training and could be fit enough for Saturday but he will definitely be playing in the next fortnight. As I was, asking him questions I forgot I was puffing on a big spliff even Harry smirked at the raver.

Looks like Kane will be out for at least 2 months with his ankle, so I think spurs should play son as a striker with a five in midfield with Ali or eriksen playing just off son. I said on transfer deadline day spurs should have at least 3 strikers at a club playing champions league football. I wish Jermaine Defoe was still at spurs and we should have gone for him as he would have been a cheap buy who loves to score goals.

He is Sunderland's only hope of survival, and even that is a thin one. He would have cost £20m to force their hand, and at his age is plain stupid.

Moussa Dembele at £7m was the one we let get away. He was such an obvious talent and little to no risk at his tender age.

Morning Eds,

So silly day is upon us. We as usual are linked with anyone who can kick a ball!

Is there any update on Sissiko and Isco, I have heard Sissiko is on his way to spurs HQ? Have we had a bid accepted? With Isco I heard that he favours a move back to Malaga last night but this morning reports are saying Spurs are his preferred destinantion. Can you shed any light on these deals and also Pau Lopez and NKoudou. Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sissoko is about money - if they agree to the significant demands then it can be done. I would not hold your breath for Isco. Kevin-Georges N’Koudou was completed yesterday for all intents and purposes before the lady from Marseille headed elsewhere to complete another deal. She is currently heading in to Farnborough and will wash up any odds and ends today. Goalkeeper Pau Lopez will also get done today. If you want a wildcard then I will offer you Max Meyer.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

31 Aug 2016 10:55:37
Max Meyer. Nice. I'd be happy!

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2016 11:12:46
Thanks Ed,

I would love Max Meyer, but I am a realist and understand that like Isco this is a non starter from the beginning. IMO Sissoko is over rated and over valued, even in todays market he at most £10m.

So with Nkoudou done and Lopez being finalised today, it seems that unless something from nowhere happens our business is.

I am not entirely happy with our business if this is the case, I still feel we are at least 1 player light, providing everyone stays.

I enjoy today on a whole but it is so hard being a totenham fan on these days!

Thanks again ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 12:03:18
It's hard being a Tottenham fan 365 days a year, I used to have dark curly hair once but spurs have turned me grey and balding.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 09:01:58
I'm not going to ask the eds a question of how likely is it that Isco would come to North London. But oh my what a capture that would be!

Nkoudou + Isco today and I'll be extremely happy.

Any idea of the right back situation? Anyone taking Trippier, anyone coming in?

{Ed001's Note - Isco was signed because Zidane persuaded the club to sign him, it is highly unlikely he will leave.

Trippier has had a few offers, but the most likely move is a difficult one as West Ham want him but won't deal with Levy and Trippier is keen on a move there. Sunderland are also very keen but he is not so keen, still that does seem the most likely due to the bad blood between Spurs and the Hammers. Which is why it will be last minute, if it does go through, as Trippier is not keen. I just wonder if he would be interested in a return to Burnley? I also wouldn't rule out late interest from Everton.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2016 09:38:25
Okay. Thanks Ed. Even though your news were not so nice to hear ;)
Wouldn't mind Sissoko, but 30m pounds would be way too much for him I think. Very good on his day, but not the most consistent player.

Ed, if Trippier leaves, do you see us using Dier and Walker-Peters as cover for the right back spot atleast until january?

{Ed001's Note - I am shocked he is even under consideration, Sissoko just doesn't turn up often enough to deserve that kind of fee. It was not so long ago no one was interested because of the price being asked. Not sure if that means buyers have got more desperate or if Newcastle (who are desperate to get rid) have just dropped the price by a decent enough margin.

Wanyama was brought in to allow Dier to offer cover in the defence, without leaving a gaping hole in midfield. So I would assume he is going to cover for Walker until January, at least. I know you have been looking for a right back all summer, but I don't know of one arriving imminently so I have to assume that is the plan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 09:54:12
Yeah. I'm with you on Sissoko. Tielemans most likely to stay at Anderlecht for now?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Tielemans, haven't heard anything for a few days, but he was set to stay last I heard yes.}

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 10:17:48
Ok. Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

31 Aug 2016 17:53:21
Ed, if we are so keen to let trippier go, why did we get rid of yedlin?

{Ed001's Note - you aren't keen to let him go, he is keen to leave though, he wants first team football.}

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 18:17:40
Has the picture become any clearer ed 001? At least any thoughts on Sissokho?

{Ed001's Note - Sissokho has been priced out of the market, be thankful. Right now nothing has changed though there should be a lot of movement today that could change things.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

I'm praying we don't get Sissokho! Thanks ed!

01 Sep 2016 06:49:13
Well that didn't work out.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate I know you really didn't want him to arrive. It took a lot of negotiation, I am still surprised Spurs were willing to make the effort.}

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Sep 2016 06:49:45
What do you think about the Sissokho transfer ed?

{Ed001's Note - terrible deal for Spurs. He will play brilliantly, when he feels like it, then stroll through 10 games. Poor man's Yaya Toure. One good game in ten, terrible attitude, lazy, overly arrogant. But, and it is a big but, Poch does not like slackers, he emphasises hard work. Maybe he could be the manager to make him knuckle down and put in the effort required. All he lacks is effort, so it could be the right manager for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2016 17:36:35
Hopefully it all works out well! We could have gone for so many others for the 30m. I know that the payment terms are complicated but some deal could have been brokered for younger and better players. That's what irks me. Poch has his task cut out now!

Looks like chadli is off to west brom for a whopping 13 million pounds, that's a brilliant deal for spurs plus we got 9 million for Pritchard so let's get some top players in by Wednesday.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

29 Aug 2016 12:08:48
Raver, add Son to the list if rumours are to be believed for 25m and that's a little bit if cash, but I think it will all go towards the stadium. I think the pau lopez deal will happen as I think we are planning for life without Lloris as we won't have CL football next year and IMO think Lloris will be the beginning of a mini exodus from the lane.

29 Aug 2016 14:39:14
Exactly Levy is too tight and teams have massively strengthened and brought in players to challenge first team from last season.

Agree2 Disagree1

29 Aug 2016 20:11:38
Agree Arsenal have sorted their areas out, Leicester are linked with slimani and silva, city have a fantastic squad so does Chelsea and man Utd. Everton are strengthened more this season and we are standing still and doing nothing.

Agree Raver.

Back to Europa League for you boys next season :-)

29 Aug 2016 20:27:23
Something must be in the works - we can't let Chadli, Bentaleb, Pritchard and maybe Son and Mason all go whilst only bringing in Wanyama and maybe Nkoudou.

I know we got some youngsters coming through but we proved it takes more than that last season after our late season implosion.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 20:22:02
stop the doom n gloom. the squads strong with good kids coming through.

Agree2 Disagree0

30 Aug 2016 22:46:27
Our squad is so strong we've already proved we miss Dembele and have no suitable replacement or cover for him.

Agree0 Disagree1

30 Aug 2016 23:45:59
thats a valid point but it doesn't help when several midfield players[ali and erikson especially]are no where near top form yet.
the zip isn't in our play yet, but we remain unbeaten.
as for finding a dembele replacement, whos willing to play second fiddle to him most of the time, but can dictate a game as well as he, now that's some ask. any one in that calibre will want 1st team action, which they'd get in almost any prem side.
wanyama partly fills that roll, without the same level of passing ability which is why I guess he was bought[as well as covering diers position].

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2016 02:44:25
Our success this year will depend on a number of players performing even better than last season.

In that list I include Walker and Rose who arguably had their best seasons last season. Add to them Dembele, Dier and Lamela who also had their best season to date with us. Alli was his first season can he repeat?

That's a lot of big asks without a lot of depth to the squad especially in midfield since we've shifted so many out without the addition of any true quality.
