Hi ed002, is there any updates on incomings? Seeing things about Kovacic of Madrid?


{Ed002's Note - KOvacic is possible and Toljan likely.}

1.) 25 Jul 2017 21:44:19
Thanks ed002.

2.) 26 Jul 2017 07:36:02
Thanks Ed for ratifying my post from earlier!



14 Jul 2017 14:13:26
Hi Ed002, Hope you can answer my question but do Spurs have £££ to spend in the transfer market or is it a case of because we are building the stadium it's a sell to raise some funds situation? Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - They have more than £3 Ryan if that is what you are asking. And clubs cannot simply keep adding players without others leaving to make space in the squad.}

1.) 14 Jul 2017 16:06:08
Thanks ED002, Most insightful as ever! Have a great weekend!

2.) 15 Jul 2017 01:24:17
we have a bare bones squad and that was before Walker £50m, Bentaleb £16m, N'Jie £6m and Fazio £3m were sold.

We have to invest hard and get 4 players as a minimum or next season on a bigger pitch will sap the first XI.

Josh King, Barkley, Perreira and Nawson must be a minimum requirement.

Newspapers reporting that UTD want Toby Alderweireld. Is this something that could happen and the reason he hasn't signed a new contract?


1.) 22 Mar 2017 14:09:27
I seriously hope it is just paper talk, IMO joining UTD would be a step back, for Toby to leave us for anyone in the EPL would be a step back, as I feel we are up there with Chelsea currently. Teams like ManU, ManC and ARSEnal are either teams in transition or a downward spiral. Chelsea are the only team around our level currently and let's be honest who wants to go there, plus he plays with his mate 'Super Jan' efer week. I think his new deal with us isn't to far away just that he wants money similar to the other top earners, which is fair enough given he has been 1 of our best players for the last 2 seasons.

Do any of the eds have any insight as to why Paul Mitchell resigned? Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - isn't he off to Liverpool?}

1.) 09 Aug 2016 19:51:14
I knew he had offers but wasn't sure why he was resigning.

2.) 09 Aug 2016 20:26:39
I thought Leicester Ed.

{Ed001's Note - could be mate, I really can't remember. Personally I hope you are right as I really do not rate him at all.}

3.) 10 Aug 2016 15:39:53
Yeah I read Leicester on a few sites earlier too, round about the same time you posted Jerrylee.

I don't rate Mitchell either. He recommended Stambouli and Fazio and when at Southampton Osvaldo. He didn't unearth any real talent for us, just obvious players like Alderweireld.

4.) 10 Aug 2016 17:22:26
Not overly keen on the guy either mate. Be interested to find out the real reason as to why he left! I guess we all have our own ideas. My fav is the power poch now has due to his promotion.

{Ed001's Note - I don't understand why the club brought him in to be honest.}

5.) 10 Aug 2016 23:29:33
Pochettino wanted him though so I don't buy the Pochettino promotion affecting Mitchell. It's blatantly Levy and his ways that has done this, not that I'm unhappy with Mitchell going it's just worrying that Levy affects people like this. Levy needs to deliver us a creative midfielder with pace or I think we will be short.



14 Jul 2016 14:30:51
Hi ED,

What's the deal with Calleri. Is he making a move to Europe?


{Ed002's Note - Palermo, Chelsea, Inter, Lazio, Fiorentina, Arsenal, Valencia, Spurs, Stoke, Roma and Villarreal are all known to have shown interest in Jonathan Calleri but it was Chelsea and Inter who have discussed a possible move with Boca before his rights were completely purchased by third party investors who struck a deal for his registration to pass from Boca to Uruguan second division side Deportivo Maldonado - and then immediately lent to Sao Paulo. Boca were looking to keep him until the summer and were looking for a premium for a winter sale - and that put Inter on a difficult footing and they started to look for an initial loan or assistance from a third party. Chelsea did not really want to take the player until the summer and they would be looking to send him straight out on loan if a January move was pushed and even that was complicated by the player, at the time, having three owners, Boca, Deportivo Maldonado and an investment company. My expectation was that he would therefore stay at Boca until the summer and then complete a move to Chelsea, assuming the new manager was keen. However, this has rather irked Inter who, strapped for cash, wanted to complete the transfer in January, subject to (a) them having managed to raise the funding necessary to make the deal happen (perhaps with third party assistance) as they remain short of funds, (b) providing the player with assurances over game time, and (c) the player accepting those assurances and agreeing the move which would almost certainly mean playing for a different side until June - probably Bologna or just perhaps Frosinone. Inter fell at the first hurdle as they could not raise the money. The player's third party ownership was so messy that Boca were not in the position to negotiate on their own. It is a little clearer now but generally way more ugly than it should be. Chelsea have since stepped back from the whole mess, Valencia have a change coming in the summer and I expect they will drop their interest. Fiorentina are keen, Inter remain interested, as do Lazio whilst Spurs have moved on but I suspect it is from this group that someone will try and untangle his ownership and make something happen in the summer.

The Work Permit situation for Italy is to be resolved with the Italian Government willing to give him a passport - but the British Government generally takes a dim view of passports of convenience. However, if he were to move to England the costs would be such that he would be eligible in any case. I am not aware of any recent West Ham links although there was a frenzy of activity around Christmas when folks were misled in to believing that he could be moving to West Ham on loan - that would of course not be possible with third party ownership. There is much untangling to do and a couple of further complexities have now popped up which people are not aware of. Firstly Calleri contract was extended by one month from June 30 after permission was granted for him to play in the concluding stages of the Copa Libertadores (where I think he was the leading scorer) which run through July. The second point is that it has been suggested that Sao Paulo may already have a commitment to extend the contract to the end of the year when a move to Europe would possibly happen. Else, he will move to Europe later in this window. Right now talks are not happening and it is in the hands of the club. The club who are committee to unravelling this mess are Fiorentina. Inter may perhaps return but there is no deal. Lazio, just possibly - but my gut feeling is not. Spurs have moved on as I said. West Ham? I think it very unlikely.}

1.) 14 Jul 2016 16:07:46
Thanks for the update ED. Your knowledge is very much appreciated.

I feel like this tottenham team will lead me to an early grave. Not sure on the decisions but a hard place to go and the draw keeps us in the mix. Definitely the better team in the 2nd half.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 19:54:56
Well one thing supporting Tottenham has made the raver a drug addict, binge drinker and a sex addict it should definitely come with a health warning following the lilywhites.



09 Jan 2018 18:36:28
What are the chances of Andre Gomes in this window ed? Apparently he's asked to leave Barca.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot quantify chances but perhaps a slim chance.}

1.) 11 Jan 2018 23:34:17
can you define slim 002?

{Ed033's Note - May I have your attention please? Slim is the alter ego and evil, mischievous side of 002.
Will the real Slim please stand up?



13 Nov 2017 13:33:22
What is the realistic possibility of Bale making a return to Spurs and would we want him. World class player but his injuries are a concern!


1.) 13 Nov 2017 14:28:18
I wouldn't have bale back Ryan as I think his career will be ended soon with all the injury's he's having. I wouldn't swap dele Ali with him at the moment that's how high our current squad his at the moment. The one player who I would love at spurs from Madrid is Marcus ascensio who will become the best footballer in the world in a few years time.

2.) 13 Nov 2017 18:58:27
Agree the money Or players Madrid would want for Bale wouldn’t be worth it.



06 Sep 2017 12:32:14
Any of the ED's got any idea what is going on with Alderwierelds contract? It seems he is getting tired of waiting. Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - it is not yet resolved.}

1.) 06 Sep 2017 16:12:25
He's one of the best defenders in the league and being paid one of the lowest wages in the league. I hope spurs sort it out as a lot of top clubs want him.

2.) 06 Sep 2017 19:58:31
He'll move on I think, too good to be paid what you guys pay him plus he'll want to win trophies.

3.) 07 Sep 2017 07:33:42
He won't be moving to Liverpool then if he wants trophies, all honesty I think he will sign a new contract.

4.) 08 Sep 2017 22:56:10
Just like Coutinho wants to win some.
Mane will be next.



01 Sep 2017 10:17:06
I think that turned out to be a half decent transfer window. if we can get Barkley in January then we will be laughing! What did gripe me through the window was Big Mouth Karen Brady coming out and calling Tottenham Bargain Basement Hunters. Who of note did West Ham sign? It's embarassing calling out Spurs when they are currently in a rental!


1.) 01 Sep 2017 10:43:17
And bottom of the league! Agree Ryan and Ms Brady certainly seems to have a massive chip on her shoulder as far as Tottenham are concerned.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 11:00:29
I just don't get why she always talks about Spurs. I actually feel sorry for West Ham fans as they have been sold down the river by there tin pot owners!

3.) 01 Sep 2017 11:41:01
Coming from the woman who got the linford Christie stadium due to her tory government bung lol. The facts are West ham have always been jealous of spurs.

4.) 01 Sep 2017 12:10:56
I'm glad they got it Raver! We belong in N. London.

5.) 01 Sep 2017 15:51:30
Agree spurs and north London is like the raver and Stringfellows they both belong together.

6.) 01 Sep 2017 17:36:00
I love your analogies Raver, priceless!

7.) 01 Sep 2017 20:39:58
Thanks spurs 62, you put a lump in the ravers throat when you said you were in London drinking and looking for the famous Subaru. Don't worry 62 you will meet the raver and that famous car when I take you out for a night out to get absolutely smashed.

8.) 01 Sep 2017 21:07:10
shes a tory person, raver.

Apparently Danny Rose spoke to Levy and gave the all clear because he didn't have to google him.

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'

Come on let's not kid ourselves our loss of Walker won't be as great as your loss of Sanchez especially if we play 3 at the back and deploy wing backs as opposed to full backs! 50million for Walker is great business sense. You guys trying to hold onto a player whoe doesn't want to be there isn't! Just speaking the truth pal!

Hi Gunnerbod, Are you waiting in anticipation of what shirt you'll have to buy next season to have Sanchez on the back. I'm going to guess Man City as he's even said he'll take a pay cut to get out of being at Arsenal. haahahahahahahahaha.
