I didn't see the game as I’m away, raver. Ellis, NES, is Zidane getting the sack in the morning. C’mon you Lilly whites I bet Wembley was rocking.


1.) 03 Nov 2017 11:23:54
party night DR. hopefully continues. he he.

2.) 03 Nov 2017 11:26:05
oh it was rocking. great night.



28 Aug 2017 19:58:13
I read a rumour that we're in for Julian Draxler. PSG have also stated he can go. I'd be happy with that!


1.) 29 Aug 2017 16:15:21
I heard the same, apparently we are in for him and PSG need to balance their books due to Financial Fair Play. Fingers crossed!

Also Diop (Celta Vigo) and Kieta (Lazio) - not happening. Would rathe r we go all out for Draxler.



18 Aug 2017 19:38:38
Just reading this on another site that Poch wants to add another 4 signings before the window closes Ross Barkley, Juan Foyth, Julian Draxler, Serge Aurier.


1.) 18 Aug 2017 19:49:19
Would like foyth as back up if wimmer leaves. And would like draxler or the lad from Barca

Still not sure on barkley and don't see the need in aurier he has a bad attitude and we have trippier and walker peters.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 20:10:02
Juan foyth is all wrapped up by Saturday night.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 20:16:07
No doubt you'll be getting a few wraps on Saturday night raver 😀.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 21:12:17
The raver not having wraps is like blakey not having buses lol.



15 Aug 2017 20:34:09
There seems to be some rumours coming out that we've agreed personal terms with Serge Aurier from PSG.

He must be taking a wage cut surely! 😀 Do we really need this guy! Is he that good?

Does he really want to come to Spurs or have the other clubs pulled out.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 23:22:25
He has also agreed terms with about three other clubs.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 07:25:37
But do they pay top wages like us Ellis? 😀Ha ha.

3.) 16 Aug 2017 07:46:04
Apparently Danny Rose spoke to Levy and gave the all clear because he didn't have to google him.



07 Aug 2017 20:09:23
How about sell Dier for 50m and get Van Dijk,

Sell Lamela and replace with Di Maria.


1.) 07 Aug 2017 22:12:46
Not sure that makes much sense to me, Doc.

Dier's great asset (aside from the fact the players all seem to love him) is that versatility that means he could play RB/ CB/ DM/ CM on Sunday, and do a good job in any of those spots. If we sold him, who would cover if Wanyama gets injured/ suspended or needed to be rotated?

Not sure Di Maria is a Poch player, although he's clearly a class act, I think we'd be better off with a younger, more malleable player (Lemar would have been perfect) .

2.) 07 Aug 2017 22:46:16
Agree with T-T-I-D. Makes no sense selling Dier when he forms such a strong part of the culture of the team (plus Deli and him are huge mates) , he has strong leadership and I think his versatility is under-rated.
As for Di Maria, absolute pie in the sky. He would need to take a considerable pay cut to come and I don't think he's a good culture fit for the he team in terms of personality.

3.) 08 Aug 2017 07:45:47
I hear what your saying lads. about good mates, but I'm sure he's head was slightly turned when UTD we're sniffing around, so there's the loyalty between friends out the window. (I know he hasn't left) but from what I read he wanted too or still does.

I said Di Maria because we still need a player to un-lock the door when people shut up shop against us. We seem to struggle at times in the final 3rd. Maybe he's looking at Barkley for that. Just to add if Wanyama got injured we could play Dembele there. Winks could also sit in there. I think we have options there.

{Ed001's Note - Dier's worry is getting enough first team football, he is unhappy at being behind Wanyama in the pecking order.}

4.) 08 Aug 2017 14:41:30
I'm not so sure he is ed. We play better football when he's nxt to dembele. Dembele pushes forward more. I think dier's downfall is his versatility. He covered right back, centre half played as a three at the back and also centre mid. The guys and lady I used to sit nxt to were of the same understanding. I think he's a better cdm than wanyama.

{Ed001's Note - he is behind according to the man who picks the team, who prefers Wanyama for some unknown reason.}

5.) 08 Aug 2017 15:09:20
Drthfc you do realise you CANNOT afford their wages or fees.

6.) 08 Aug 2017 18:29:46
Gunnerbod has subsequently just joined as an intern in the financial dept for the mighty spurs. Apparently Levy seen how much of a crush he has on Spurs that he's offered him a summer job. Levy calls it 'care in the community'

7.) 08 Aug 2017 23:14:07
Levy calls it the only person who is realistic.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 10:47:30
Dier is a great player but Wanyama has been outstanding.

Does anyone know when Toby is back?


{Ed001's Note - he is there or thereabouts now. Just depends on if Poch wants to risk him today or not.}

1.) 04 Feb 2018 09:44:24
Cheers Ed001, if ever there was a game we needed him! it’s today I feel. Tough game.

{Ed001's Note - so you would risk him then?}

2.) 04 Feb 2018 10:03:32
Me personally yes. I think he’s needed today. Liverpool on their day are a terrific side going forward. I should image Anfield will be rocking today.

We need an early goal to silence the kop.

{Ed001's Note - interesting I would have thought you would save him for the UCL.}

3.) 04 Feb 2018 10:57:35
I feel 3 points is needed though today Ed. He’ll probably keep the same team as Wednesday night. In all fairness why would he change it.
I thought that was the best performance from the boys the other night. I guess apart from Madrid I can’t comment to much on that game as I didn’t see it due to being out the country.

{Ed001's Note - exactly why I was surprised you would change it after such a good performance.}



01 Feb 2018 07:38:08
Ed001 how can Marhez still be at Leicester, can’t be good for both parties. Why did he hand in a transfer request. Surely the players will give him the cold shoulder now, let alone the fans . We should have offered Lamela and 45m.


{Ed001's Note - the issue was he was very choosy over who he wanted and Leicester were not willing to drop their valuation. It could be a huge mistake, really depends on him now. It will be a very uncomfortable situation. It was difficult after the summer as well though, so you never know, he might just knuckle down and get on with it.

Personally I think you need to keep Lamela, he has real quality about him when fit. He will make a difference in the second half of the season I think.}

1.) 01 Feb 2018 11:22:34
I used to stick up for Lamela but now I think it would be good to sell him. I know he has been injured but even before that his play was frustrating to say the least. He gets stuck in but has no pace and doesn't score enough goals. He won't be a starter in most games and if a decent bid comes in I would happily sell.

2.) 01 Feb 2018 17:26:05
I want him to stay as the ravers been dining out on his name, when I got my full spurs tracksuit on and my hair styled like his I'm the spitting image of him. I still remember getting ambushed in oxford street one day by loads of kids begging for selfies and autographs.

3.) 01 Feb 2018 21:29:10
Eric Lamela?
Eric Morecambe more like 😉.

{Ed025's Note - yes but not very wise.. :)

4.) 01 Feb 2018 22:15:04
I was thinking Eric Bristow tbh.

5.) 01 Feb 2018 22:46:13
Get on the wrong side of me and I'm like Eric cantona.

6.) 02 Feb 2018 07:40:28
Eric the banana man.

7.) 02 Feb 2018 14:33:22
Eric the banana man lol classic 80s tv at his best, they should make another one called Richard the raverman. When Richard has had his marching powder he turns into the raver man todays kids would love that programme.

8.) 02 Feb 2018 19:49:49
I knew you’d get that raver, were exactly the same age.

Pogo Patterson, Tucker Jenkins, and your mate just say no. that was another classic.

There was another programme on Saturday nights called mind your language that was a classic.



31 Jan 2018 21:45:02
Marouan Fellaini- has to get man of the match. 🤪🤪.




19 Jan 2018 17:13:43
Antonio Conte is having a medical at Chelsea after being linked with a 30m pound bid for West Ham’s Andy Carrol.


1.) 19 Jan 2018 18:49:30
And Peter Crouch lol. Trust Chelsea to get lucky with Carroll getting injured.

2.) 19 Jan 2018 22:05:56
Ellis, Carroll's always injured. lol.



17 Jan 2018 17:58:22
What’s going on raver/ Ellis/ NES? Where’s that cheque book. We need a creative player.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 19:12:08
I don't see anyone coming in Dr, I think poch is happy with the squad and is using son as the creative player for Harry Kane, I think we need a top winger and another striker and I think Callum Wilson from Bournemouth would be ideal at spurs and lanzini from west ham.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 19:58:26
not happening DR. Vic and Toby back will help, trouble is if Kane gets an injury. I've been crying out for aother creative player for 3 seasons.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 09:47:07
Ronaldinho looks a bit over weight and looks like he has swallowed a portion of chips backwards haha.
Raver I see you swimming in the Thames at canvey the other day lay off the magic mushrooms.
Udinese has a good forward called Kevin lasagna Spurs should go after him but probably cost a few pasta sheets.
Seriously think we need a few players this window to guarantee champions league no point moving into the best stadium in the country and playing Europa league, that won't attract the top players.
Hopefully we smash the saints on Sunday.

4.) 18 Jan 2018 23:33:24
Ronaldinho was unbelievably good, if someone said you could pick a player for spurs it would of been him or Zidane for me.

5.) 19 Jan 2018 10:53:13
I used to love watching Ronaldinho Ellis when he was in his prime, zidane was the only player who was reminded me of Glenn Hoddle with his passing and the way he used to glide past players. My all time favourite player was Marco van basten and I loved watching Michele platini.

Topman Ed001, appriecate that update mate, so to make the night just right, Turn Utd over, sign Mahrez and Zaha. I’d be a happy man. We’ll know in a few hours. I’m leaning towards a disappointing evening.


{Ed001's Note - I would think it would be Mahrez or Zaha though mate.}

31 Jan 2018 19:15:47
I’m a grate admirer of Mahrez Ed’s. Would we pay 60m for him though.

Why have you heard something Ed’s? 😏😏.


{Ed001's Note - Leicester are ready to get rid now, hence him out of the squad and you have been offered the chance to take him. No idea what your end have said but it is a possibility Levy will jump on it. It is his kind of deal, last minute, last-gasp. We all know he loves them!}

When we was 1st in for Zaha, I wasn’t to impressed but I stand corrected I think the boy has big potential.

But like you say. It would have been down by now. I guess we can hope until 23.00pm tonight. Zaha and Draxler I’d be happy with that.


{Ed001's Note - what about Mahrez?}

I agree Ellis, I don’t know why we leave it late? Maybe so many moving parts, all parties have to agree, legal team, sponsor’s etc etc, I’d be happily with another signing. Is that Draxler just all talk. If he’s up for grabs he has to be going somewhere.

Apparently we’re talking to Palace for Zaha.

Can see it happening if I’m honest.

I do sometimes wonder who scouts these players. And what approval chain it goes through.


{Ed001's Note - I have been wondering that myself, if there have been any changes in the last few years. It could be anything from analysts, scouts or just giving Poch more say that could completely change the recruitment policy.}

14 Feb 2018 17:13:45
I agree Ed, the signings of late haven’t been good in my honest opinion.

The dury is also out on Sanchez for me add Llorente to that, the scouting has been poor. You have to ask why other clubs weren’t in for these 2 and Aurier.


{Ed001's Note - I do not rate Sanchez at all, his reading of the game is abysmal but he is quick and strong so often gets away with it. Maybe he can be taught to defend properly but, imo, he doesn't have a defensive mindset that is needed. He will always be chasing back, which runs a bigger risk than being set ready.}

Dembele has been outstanding of late. Credit had to go to the manger for recognising his best position. Under previous managers he looked lost a little bit. Or should I say they didn’t get the best out of him.

The boys are turning into men. I don’t look at Spurs now and think here we go again. Eriksen has also stepped up to the task in recent games, by that I mean he’s starting to dictate games. As for Kane a real credit to football.

Full credit Smallsy and Leahy, I totally agree with raver that Aurier is a big risk, I’m not convinced with him. Can he be coached that’s the big question.


{Ed001's Note - is there a problem with the recruitment recently? It seems to have gone from quality players with athleticism, such as the Rolls-Royce Dembele, to quality athletes that can sometimes control a ball, such as Aurier and Sissoko. You need power and pace in the Prem but it is useless without some quality.}
