Ed have there been any major changes to the list you mentioned in the Sharkopod? Thanks.

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - Not that I can think of off the top of my head.}


1.) 31 Jul 2018 12:12:25
Thanks Ed!

Eds, are we looking to get Bale back? I remember Ed 002 saying we might look at him as our marquee signing as we head to the new stadium. Can a deal be done?

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - you have first option when he leaves.}


1.) 27 May 2018 07:54:07
Does he want to leave this summer Ed?

Tough luck yesterday ed! Looking forward to your review Ed.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate he does, the fans have never taken to him. Partially his own fault as he has never made an attempt to do interviews in Spanish.

I am not looking forward to it, as it means I have to watch the game again!}


2.) 27 May 2018 10:01:26
Got to hurt. I still don't want to watch the FA cup semi and this is the biggest club stage.

{Ed001's Note - it does mate. However it is the only way to do it with a cool head, rather than when I am swept up in the moment.}


3.) 27 May 2018 10:27:46
Tough task that! I am looking forward to it!

Really thought Liverpool were going to win it. Shame that the game could have been much better, although we did get some wonder goals!

{Ed001's Note - that is the worst thing, the game died on its arse when it should have been a great match.}


4.) 28 May 2018 14:01:41
Only first option with Premiership teams.


 

 

20 May 2018 03:58:35
Ed could you tell me more about a player image rights? I was reading about how Madrid own Bale's image rights and pay him some percent of earning from it ( which might be spurious which is why I want to know more) .

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - The image rights work very specifically at Real Madrid. You sign and you give up 50% of your image rights to the club. There might be a little negotiation, but that is effectively it. Additionally, Real Madrid are one of a few clubs that have negotiated different deals with their kit manufacturer (Adidas in their case) that sees a share of shirt sales proceeds rather than a lump some payment. It is also worth noting that there are significant sales contributing to the costs of players, they are the club with the largest world-wide income and there are some slightly messy "politics" associated with the Spanish game still. In terms of other clubs image rights are more in the control of players and they get small payments when the club uses their image. A few players earn very significant amounts from image rights (Ronaldo being the extreme example I guess); a few clubs have allowed them to have their shorts pulled down in respect of specific image rights deals (Liverpool is a good example here); a few players have used their image rights to effectively extort money from clubs and country (Mo Salah is one example); generally everyone treads carefully in reagrds image rights as there have been significant tax issues in Spain and particularly in England where clubs had been paying image rights money in to trusts (EBTs) that upset the Inland Revenue and all EPL sides had to come clean and negotiate a solution with them; and Arsenal and Chelsea settled a separate matter related to the payment of money related to the image rights of Ashley Cole which was more complex as he had represented both sides.}


1.) 20 May 2018 13:11:36
Thanks for the reply Ed! That comprehensive comment was very educational! Much appreciated!


 

 

16 Apr 2018 17:51:06
Ed 002 I'm surprised you have mentioned Man United may have to fend off a contract offer from Spurs, among other things for Toby. I thought we were well past the extention stage With Toby being frozen out!

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}


 

 

26 Jan 2018 13:59:42
Hey Ed! Any update on Spurs transfers?

Thanks!

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - Moura should go ahead if the payment schedule can be agreed with PSG and there are no hiccups over personal terms.}


1.) 26 Jan 2018 15:33:56
Thank You Ed! Did Spurs go for Moura over Malcom?
Also what is your impression of Moura as a player and a person?
Thank You.

{Ed002's Note - Moura is high risk and expensive given he is out of favour and would not be guaranteed a start at many higher-placed English sides given he can't get near the starting 11 at PSG. I don't know how many minutes Moura has played this season but it won't be much - he is rarely in the squad and when he is he is generally an unused substitute. Interest in taking him on loan elsewhere has gone nowhere as the player has high expectations. His abilities are limited to being able to run along a straight line quickly. It makes about zero sense to me.}


2.) 26 Jan 2018 16:35:46
totally agree with your assessment ed.


3.) 26 Jan 2018 17:35:30
Thanks Ed! I suspect I read your views on some other site as was hoping we'd turn our attention elsewhere, but alas.


4.) 28 Jan 2018 10:55:50
ED - A very harsh assessment for Moura. He was sensational before PSG signed Neymar, Draxler and Di Maria. He has been pushed down the pecking order and not been given a chance. He is stil only 25 and has been sidestepped for a year. He can pass, dribble and cross and has good speed, vision and technical ability. He will be sensational at Spurs and will look like a bargain at €25m in a few months time.

Spurs are short of players and need Lucas Moura, Malcom and Sessegnon to be quite blunt! Time to invest a few quid after years of saving, and give ourselves a chance in the FA Cup, Champions League and Top 4. With three additional players the fixture list will see us miss out on all three.

{Ed002's Note - I assume you are not aware that Lucas and Malcom play in the same position?

I also assume you aren't aware of the difficulties Lucas caused and the efforts made to get him back to Brazil?

There is a reason he cannot get a start at PSG.}


5.) 28 Jan 2018 12:42:47
what I’ve seen of him, he’s better than what we have. I’ve never rated Lamela, Sissoko has always been average. Both of which lack pace, that’s what we’re crying out for.


6.) 29 Jan 2018 20:21:59
Of course I know he plays RAM like Malcom, but he has also played across the line at LAM and even CAM just like Eriksen, Dele Alli and Malcom.

Happy Birthday Ed! You should have left an Easter egg in the daily news article about your birthday!

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, but it is hardly news, it has happened 20 times (or so) before after all.}


1.) 31 Jul 2018 12:13:42
Not since you started giving us guessing games with the image for the news for the day! Although it must have been tempting to put Neymar there yesterday.

{Ed001's Note - hahaha I did the guessing games from the start, it just took people a while to notice.}


2.) 31 Jul 2018 18:33:57
Happy Birthday young chap. 🎂👏👏.


 

 

28 Jul 2018 05:52:35
Ed could you add Zaha's name to your to do player profile list?

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, added him.}


1.) 28 Jul 2018 09:37:15
Thanks Ed!

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}


 

 

07 Jul 2018 03:20:40
Ed 002 are you still travelling or back home?

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - I am home until Monday.}


1.) 07 Jul 2018 18:53:15
Any chance of a sharkopod?

{Ed002's Note - When I get time.}


2.) 08 Jul 2018 04:55:56
Alright Ed! Happy travels!


 

 

10 May 2018 06:15:06
Loved your end of season awards Ed! special thanks to Ed 007 for the insight! :)

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, that must be the best of then, rather than worst of, you are talking about!}


1.) 10 May 2018 08:24:29
Loved the ones for the mighty as well as the mares! I was surprised with you going for Lascelles though.

{Ed001's Note - I was picking on how they played compared to how I rated them and he has had a good season, though I don't rate him at all. He makes far too many errors for my liking, but then who doesn't? The best centre back, by a country mile, was frozen out for most of the season by your manager. Nobody else has been top class on the right side of a defence or even close to it.}


2.) 10 May 2018 15:43:16
True Ed. I'll be sad to see him go, but we have already spent have a season without him to lessen the impact.

{Ed001's Note - and you have been half as good. Poch is replacing quality players with athletes.}


3.) 10 May 2018 15:43:41
Do you know why he was frozen out Ed?

{Ed001's Note - because he wouldn't sign a new contract.}


4.) 10 May 2018 17:31:44
It's scary that we are doing so! It would be even more bothersome if Poch specifically had asked for an athletic profile. Sissokho, Aurier, Sanchez, Lucas. plenty of names there for us Ed.

{Ed001's Note - Poch chooses the players, he likes athletes.}


5.) 10 May 2018 17:33:28
Was he frozen because he kept moving the posts? But then again, what do I know! Must be a negotiation tactic.

{Ed001's Note - no, a deal just couldn't be agreed so he was left out.}


6.) 12 May 2018 17:11:15
Any chance of him staying Ed?

{Ed001's Note - if he signs a contract there is every chance, but it seems unlikely he will. Spurs just don't want his contract to run down and lose him on the cheap so are looking to move him on while he is worth something. The worry is that this is going to keep happening, with the likes of Walker, Rose and Alderweireld all wanting out over money and you can never build a team for the long term.}


7.) 12 May 2018 17:39:41
Funny just to compare last year's defence with this year's ed! Hopefully that stops now.

{Ed001's Note - it has to or you will drop behind and you will struggle to catch up with a stadium to pay for.}


8.) 13 May 2018 12:45:28
Only 6 more goals conceded than last season, with one game left and having technically played just away games with lots of injuries. what's soo funny?


 

 

22 Apr 2018 02:56:20
Hey Ed 001 any chance of a review of the semi final?

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - I will try and put something together later mate. Might have to be tomorrow, but I will do one for you.}


1.) 22 Apr 2018 06:47:19
Thank You Ed! I surely could do with understanding what transpired yesterday. Much appreciated as always!

{Ed001's Note - it might not be as insightful as you expect, but I will explain why in the review!}


2.) 22 Apr 2018 08:13:05
Still looking forward to it!

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. Did you enjoy the Gazza stories in the daily review by the way?}


3.) 22 Apr 2018 18:30:26
I loved them! Found the Spurs story the craziest, because I still can't believe the Les Ferdinand routine.

{Ed001's Note - I would believe almost anything of Gazza, he is one of those kind of people that nothing is beyond the realms of possibility.}


4.) 23 Apr 2018 02:59:53
Me too Ed. I'd believe almost anything about him, except his current state.

{Ed001's Note - that doesn't surprise me to be honest. He really struggles with his mental health and football did nothing to help him for long periods. There was a time when he was so lonely and desperate that he would do public appearances such as turning up at a kid's birthday party for free. He had no money but he is not really a money grabber at all anyway. The problem was he would turn up at the house for the party, then 4 weeks later he would still be kipping on the couch! I am glad to see that football has finally started to take notice of how hard it is for footballers after they stop playing in the modern era. They are so far removed from the rest of us these days, that it becomes much more difficult, as they do not have normal people around them to help them adjust. The saddest thing is most people will just dismiss their struggles because they have money.}
