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.


 

 

12 Dec 2017 16:32:22
Hey Ed! Any chance of a Spurs sharkopod?

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - I think Arsenal are next up and then Spurs.}


1.) 13 Dec 2017 02:12:03
Looking forward to it!


 

 

31 Aug 2017 06:32:03
Ed is Mousa Dembele to Spurs a possibility. Please don't say we've already got one.

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - Spurs are interested but he is looking for guarantees regarding first team football, which he won't get from Spurs.}


1.) 31 Aug 2017 07:42:57
Thank You Ed! Good luck and lots of gratitude in advance to all the Eds swamped by deadline day!

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate, hopefully it should be an exciting one for Spurs fans as Levy likes to leave it late to pick up a bargain or two.}


2.) 31 Aug 2017 08:20:55
Just in time for our season opener at Goodison park that too! How fortunate 😂😂.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 10:08:56
Oddknob, who is going to replace the Ox, Sanchez and Mustafi?


4.) 31 Aug 2017 12:02:36
OX to L, pool confirmed. 125k a week, even took a pay cut to leave le Arse hahahaha.


 

 

22 Aug 2017 15:14:37
Ed any update on Spurs transfers?

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - Sanchez is all but completed. They are going to push ahead for Barklay regardless of injury and the others are in hand.}


1.) 22 Aug 2017 17:33:44
Alright! Thank Ed! When you say others are in hand, who do you mean?

{Ed002's Note - Aurier and Pereira.}


2.) 22 Aug 2017 17:59:37
Ed I haven't watched much of both, but who do you think would be the better fit for Spurs between them? Of course, I'm ignoring important parameters like cost etc, but I'd like to know who the Eds think is better / suitable.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't have thoughts like that about young men.}


3.) 22 Aug 2017 18:31:13
Come on Ed. A young lad like yourself can't go calling folks that age as young men. You might reduce the mystery surrounding Ed 002.


4.) 23 Aug 2017 08:23:55
Ed002, You say we have deals for Aurier and Pereira in hand, is that deals for both or one or the other? as they are both predominantly RBs aren't they? . Just seems strange we would purchase 2 RBs when we are in desperate need for a striker and winger, any updates on these types of player?

Thanks in advance

COYS.

{Ed002's Note - Clubs make provisions.}


 

 

13 Aug 2017 09:03:35
Eds would Spurs go for another center back if Wimmer is sold?

Also Thanks a ton for the new Sharkopod. Your efforts and time are greatly appreciated!

Spurs23

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure they would - the two they showed an interest in are no longer available. Perhaps there is a youngster coming through?}


1.) 13 Aug 2017 12:13:41
Thanks Ed! I also wanted to ask you about what happened to Spurs' pursuit of young Sessegnon?
Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - They want to avoid selling him and turned down a very good offer involving players, cash and a two year loan back from another side. But it will largely be in the hands of the palyer if a very significant offer were to arrive.}


2.) 13 Aug 2017 12:26:15
Ahh. Hope the lad likes us. Thank You ED!
Have a nice weekend (whatever is left)

Hey Ed 001, have you created some post about some things you look out for when you're watching / scouting a game, something to help us if we wanted to learn how to analyse and understand football better?

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - that is a good idea for an article or series of articles, as there are so many different things. I have added it to my to do list, I will get started on it as soon as I have finished the season reviews (only Chelsea left to do) and the review of the transfer window.}


1.) 04 Sep 2017 18:30:28
That's great! This new series could be even better than your season review series, which is excellent!

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, I am flattered.}

Really strong and fiery comments by Rose. He doesn't seem too happy that Walker has gone to a team with double the salary and which spends a couple hundred mil every every year.

Spurs23

1.) 10 Aug 2017 07:03:43
MU fan here just curious to what you thought of roses interview it was a pretty stinging attack on your club. Does he have a point though?

He shouldn't of vented it the way he did though.


2.) 10 Aug 2017 07:53:00
Date, he does have a point but Rose would be naive to think Spurs would spend lots more money and give him 200k a week. He may want out or something else and we don't have all the information to form an opinion, but I'm pretty unhappy that he mouthed off whatever to the Sun.
It surely won't go down well with all Spurs fans and majority of football fans.


3.) 10 Aug 2017 08:17:04
Rose has only become a decent reliable LB after working with Poch. He's been given the opportunity to grow at Spurs and I don't think the way he's conducted himself is right. If you want a move then do it professionally. I believe Poch comments regarding having the best days out of Walker to be true! I think 1 more year out of rose and we would have seen the best out of him and he can go! I have said this before but you look at the players who have moved on from Poch's sides. Shaw, Schnederlin, Lovren etc they have all failed to live up to there expectation. Maybe Poch is such a good man manager he knows how to get the best out of them where others fail. I'd even go as far as saying Shaw and some cash for Rose! I'd rather not have the toxicity in the dressing room as it creates an environment where other players will think to do the same!


4.) 10 Aug 2017 08:29:58
As a MU fan I'd be extremely disappointed if we gave you shaw and cash for rose I see why you'd want that though Rose has been solid for you but if and it's a big if shaw can get up and running then he's got the potential to be the best left back in the prem. I'd take Rose all day long but I what he said in that interview was massively unprofessional. Also I see Rose as a better player than walker so what fee would Levy demand.


5.) 10 Aug 2017 08:51:43
The thing about Rose is that he probably is the most complete LB in the league but I fear injuries will sideline him a lot in the future but the only way I'd want to part with him would be to get Shaw from Manchester United in return. I doubt he'd go to Chelsea as the comments about being back up North and the fact I doubt Tottenham would entertain any bid from them. Shaw has worked with Poch and I believe he can regain his Southampton form under him. Difference between Spurs and Utd is that players are given more time and thre is less pressure. Plus we have another sturdy LB in Davies. He may not be a world beater but he's reliable!


6.) 10 Aug 2017 09:46:58
I made the point a couple of weeks ago that Spurs appear to be at a crossroads. Young exciting team, right up there, but potentially will lose players due to the salaries on offer. Well done on getting £50M for Walker but what happens when Ali gets his head turned with £250k a week on the table.

It's a tough one, I think Levy has to have a reality check, it's ok getting big fees for your players but not if it weakens you. If he changes salaries then It think Spurs can take that final step.


7.) 10 Aug 2017 10:40:35
AJH, I believe with the new stadium we will be able to compete and I would go as far as saying ENIC will probably look for a big buyer. The problem with Rose is that he was happy to sign a new 5 year contract yet comes out and slates the club. Gary Neville has got it bang on when he said he has shown no professionalism and the fact he's still injured makes it all the more deplorable from a fans perspective. Tottenham/ Poch made Rose the player he is and the reason he is gaining so much attention from other clubs. The least he could do is show a little respect. I get that players are transient and have no real loyalty to any club they sign for but it's totally unprofessional to give an interview like he did. Maybe he's bored being out injured!


8.) 10 Aug 2017 10:48:09
And the exodus begins ha ha.


9.) 10 Aug 2017 10:49:11
I fully agree with Danny rose that spurs have zero ambition, if I was a top player there I'd want out as well. We are never going to win the league or a European cup as long as we are in the top 6 levy's a happy man. Levy could have made a big statement this summer in bringing in 3 top class players for to to win the league and he's done the absolute opposite.

I'm also fed up of using google to see what cheap and crap players we are linked with, I urge all fans to start chanting levy out at all games this season and let's hope some new owners will take over to take spurs to the next level, psg owners are very welcome to take over lol.


10.) 10 Aug 2017 14:09:29
Spurs don't have a divine right to win the league just because you support them, Raver. The club has improved dramatically over the last 5/ 6 seasons, and that's because it's been well run. We're also getting a new stadium that won't even put us in debt. Keep the faith. I have little respect for fans that say they refuse to buy a season ticket unless the club makes a marquee signing; they're the same fans that then moan that the season ticket price is too high! I've got my season ticket and I'll be at Wembley whether we're starting Danny Rose or Ben Davies, Dele Alli or Ross Barkley. We will win trophies our club continues to be run properly, but I repeat, just supporting a team doesn't mean that they have to be champions!


11.) 10 Aug 2017 14:30:33
Agree the exodus is starting at Arsenal lol, Sanchez, ox, ozil are all gone this month lmao.


12.) 10 Aug 2017 17:25:52
You think so.


13.) 10 Aug 2017 17:36:55
Spud, The issue what most fans are saying, we are so close to becoming a team who can challenge. We we're in a very similar position under Harry. I'm not expecting to win the league, but I can assure you if we don't buy quality we're going to fall down the league rapidly. We have to take into account our rock for the last few seasons has been WHL that's now gone.

Totally different challenge now. I've said it before we'll be lucky to get top 6. Then players will leave. Buy Rose's comments he hasn't just thought I'd come out and say it. I bet a few players at Spurs are un-happy and said go on Danny you say what we're all thinking.


14.) 11 Aug 2017 09:40:39
I hear you Dr. I think you make good points, as ever, but I disagree that we'll be lucky to get top 6. As long as we can keep players happy and at the club, we can challenge. Having a settled squad is an advantage, not a disadvantage. Yes, we need to strengthen, but we don't need anything drastic. Also, note the fact that there isn't a single quote in the press this morning (yet. ) of any other players being disillusioned with Spurs. At the moment, it's just press fanfare.

Most fans have formed their own opinions about Levy. What do the Eds with think of Levy? Really looking forward to your answers Eds.

Spurs23

{Ed025's Note - levy is a total arse for me S23, he thinks he can buy on the cheap and sell for mega bucks, this low wage policy he has is very commendable but in the end you will lose your top stars like kane as he can get 3 times his salary at the very big clubs mate..


1.) 24 Jul 2017 00:57:42
Nothing Everton don't do, is it? Like asking for 50m for an underperforming player with 1 year left on his contract. If Levy knows a team wants a player he gets every last penny, nothing wrong with that. Pay up or shut up.

The Kane comment is also pretty poor timing from you ed, only today he said how happy he is with spurs, plus i know this straight from the horses mouth and how close he is to all my family who all live in the same area. He is one player who won't leave trust me. He also gets 130 grand a week. The new stadium will mean the wages go up for the players that merit it, perfect timing really if it opens next season.


2.) 24 Jul 2017 09:23:04
Hope we don't lose them. I just don't know how we managed to tie Kane and Dele et al within our wage structure. Guess I should start praying everyday for then to stay.
What do you think is better? Haggling over the last few quid when all fees are highly inflated, till the last possible moment or try and pay the asking rate to get the player early, knowing the value will drop a bit as the window progresses?


3.) 24 Jul 2017 12:24:09
Ellis he is just giving an example, I will apologise ed025 on Ellis behalf as he gets very touchy if you mention Kane.
