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.}

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.

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.}

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.}

Hey Ed, I have recently seen a lot of hate coming Dier's way. Would like to know what is your opinion of him in our 4 at the back and 3 at the back systems.

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - I don't rate him as a defender but I think he is very good in midfield in the role he is used for. He has no positional sense in defence, though that could be down to him getting used to midfield and so getting caught positioning himself how he would if he was in midfield.}


1.) 14 Apr 2018 07:29:02
Thanks Ed! I do like him in midfield when we play with 4 at the back, but we seem ponderous when he's in mid and it's 3 at the back, although it had been a while!

{Ed001's Note - I personally do not like a back 3, it gives up too much space on the flanks and requires a certain type of defender to make it work.}


 

 

12 Apr 2018 05:44:10
Anyone else think we are going to be playing with 3 at the back next season, with all the links to the CBs?

Spurs23

1.) 12 Apr 2018 10:54:39
Dont we play 3 at the back most the time 23? with either Dier or Wanyama sitting in allowing the fullbacks to push on.


2.) 12 Apr 2018 15:48:45
We did when we had a choice of personnel, but I felt we were going to 4 at the back with the purchase of Lucas.


 

 

08 Apr 2018 14:02:46
Hey Ed! What do you think of James Maddison? Looks like one of the best youngsters in the championship to me!

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - hi mate, he is top class in my opinion. Going to be getting a big money move soon if he keeps this up. You can see why West Ham tried so hard to sign him.}


1.) 09 Apr 2018 18:31:32
Hope he comes to Spurs although I'd like to see him in a team which gives him plenty of game time!

{Ed001's Note - he would be a very likely replacement if either Alli or Eriksen went, other than that, I do not expect him to move to Spurs right now.}


 

 

04 Sep 2017 09:23:06
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.}

Ed on the topic of Sanchez, do you think he has improved as the season has progressed?

Spurs23

{Ed001's Note - yes but he has not fixed his major issue, he does not think like a defender, hence why he is always out of position. He is constantly having to react, rather than anticipate. Until he learns to think like a defender, and get himself into position to defend rather than receive the ball, he is not going to be top class. Alderweireld usually assumes that a player going in for a tackle will not win it, which is what a defender should do, and sets himself to cover that evenuality. Sanchez needs to learn to think like that.}

Thanks for the review Ed! Pretty much describes the last couple of weeks to months for some of our team.

We could be playing 3 at the back like when Alderweireld was fit Ed.

Toby is great but for me Vertonghen has been the better of the Belgians for this season and the last.

Spurs23

{Ed004's Note - I thought from recollection Dier dropped in to make it a back 3 but it really was a formiddable backline yous had last season with Walker, Alderwereild, Vertoghen and Rose all on form}
