A bit of gossip for you all to mull over, I am not claiming to be ITK, but do get the odd snipit here and there from a friend who works for Tottenham, She has told me there will be signing, but not until after the season has started (as per usual) . Alledgedly we will sign 3-4 players for between £80-£100m depending on what players sign. Foyth will sign it is just a case of sorting whether we will loan him back, U23s or 1st team. Player himself wants our 1st team, Spurs want 6 month loan. Either Barkley (MoPo) or Kovacic (Levy) will sign both players said to be keen, depends on final price of both but only 1 will sign. Tolhan is 1 of 3 three options at RB, MoPo feels Walker Peters isn't ready for 1st team yet, we are also watching Soares and Pereia. The last doesn't come with any names but we are watching 3 experienced striker 30+ years old, 2 from Italy and 1 from Germany. Apparently MoPo feels the experience will help Jannsen whilst acting as decent back up for Kane. I know none of this is new information but hopefully some if not all is true, watch this space.

Isn't foyth going to psg? I can see many flaws in this regurgitated news. a really bad case of deja vu.

I am not claiming to be in the know, I do have a friend who works at Tottenham and once in a while she tells me things she has heard floating around the Lane. This latest one is worrying if anywhere near true. Alledgedly MoPo is growing increasingly frustrated with Levy and Lewis reneging on promising for funding and signing, it is claimed that 3 of the 4 players MoPo wants have already signed at different clubs and the last player has no interest in joining. As I say don't know how true, but this would run in line with Levy previous antics with managers and if they is any shred of truth in this, it is extremely worrying.

Thank god its come from you and not the de sacc man lol.

Wouldn't bet against it. He's an excellent manager and he's in demand. Said it before. Just got to suck it up, deal with the new stadium and come out smiling in a couple of years!


3.) 19 Jul 2017 19:29:41
Said it last year, that mopo would get frustrated and finally leave, he is not been backed all transfers should be done dusted by now .

It's going to be interesting now starting to think thier maybe significant departures not incomings, Mr levy could sell the family silverware alli Kane dire, make two hundred million, your telling me he ain't thinking that way .

Manager leaves gets another cycle begins again .

A worried yid.


4.) 19 Jul 2017 19:44:36
Your over reacting Bobby. Signings are coming.


 

 

04 Jul 2017 11:00:57
Can anyone please explain, if true, why we are even looking at Silva and N'Zonzi. Both very average players into their late 20's. Surley someone like Jean Seri at Nice is a better option for similar money, already a better player and at the right end of the age scale?

Also it has gone very quiet on the Douglas Costa and Thomas Lemar fronts anybody offer up any info on these?

Agree with you again Dr, I also think if Kyle walker is joining man city we should ask for cash and illhenacho who will become a good striker if played regularly.


2.) 04 Jul 2017 16:51:16
You are looking at those players because you are spurs!


3.) 04 Jul 2017 17:59:18
You are also signing players nobody wants wodbod lol, I haven't seen one club come in for lacazette that's why he is joining you. Mind you it will be home from home for him playing Europa league and can't beat the big boys with Lyon and then joining Arsenal who also do the same lol.

Forget buster Edwards and the great train robbery Lyon have just taken 52 million from Arsenal for a player in a Mickey Mouse league who can't even get in the France squad lmao.


4.) 04 Jul 2017 18:24:35
Could be 60m with add ons although one doubts Le Arse will reach those targets. To think Alli only cost 5m and is now worth well over a 100m, gets you thinking doesn't it, gooners.


5.) 04 Jul 2017 19:39:29
Agree with you as always Ellis, we have a squad worth a lot of money. Alli 100 mill, Kane 150 mill, dier 50 mill, eriksen 6o mill etc. I said last season spurs will run away with the league this season as we have the same squad who is only going to get better and stronger.


6.) 04 Jul 2017 19:53:30
Ellis,
And you spent £20m on Vincent Janssen.

Scored 2 goals, so £10m per goal.

Bargain.


7.) 04 Jul 2017 19:52:52
Lacazette was joining Athletico Madrid before their ban so how can you say nobody wanted him? He also stated he was only going to join a club playing champions league football but as soon as he realised Arsenal wanted him he changed his mind, that just shows what a massive club Arsenal are! Spurs could only dream of signing a player like him! £30m for sissoko, £30m for soldado, £30m for lamela and Say Arsenal have been done! LMAO 😂.


8.) 04 Jul 2017 21:01:42
Agree wodbod we have also wasted lots of money on crap players, but surely if the likes of spurs, Utd, Chelsea etc wanted lacazette he would have come to us before you as we play champions league music at our grounds. The only music he will hear at your ground this year is the theme tune to EastEnders lol.


9.) 05 Jul 2017 09:39:30
Ellis, no updates from you as yet?


10.) 05 Jul 2017 12:23:51
Raver, spurs could never out do Arsenal in the transfer Market for a player, smoking again are we, you say lacazette can't make the French team, just look at the manager he starts with sissoko that's says it all lol.


11.) 05 Jul 2017 12:24:49
How can you put yourself in the same sentence as Man Utd and Chelsea?


12.) 05 Jul 2017 12:48:32
Raver do you actually believe if Arsenal and spurs were going for the same players they would pick spurs? That's the funniest thing I've ever heard you say! We could easy trump you on fee, wages and ambition!


13.) 05 Jul 2017 14:11:22
What ambition Europa league football ha ha ha.


14.) 05 Jul 2017 18:52:16
Trophies raver, something you can only dream about.


15.) 06 Jul 2017 20:24:42
Dawj, no updates yet, only just come back from a nice holiday.

These are the players we are showing most interest in with one of them, Mawson, actually in talks at the moment. Mawson, Barkley, Lemar, Renato Sanches, Douglas Costa and Joshua King. I would expect three of them to sign for us. Lots of others have been looked at, no different to anyother club, but these are our top targets.


16.) 06 Jul 2017 21:12:20
I'd be very happy with those lot Ellis.


17.) 08 Jul 2017 14:42:41
The Guardian reporting that our Mawson offer has been rejected.


18.) 08 Jul 2017 14:48:47
Also looking at a few South Americain youngsters, Soteldo and Foyth.


19.) 09 Jul 2017 20:34:50
Twitter reporting that Foyth could sign as early as next week!


20.) 09 Jul 2017 20:37:22
Ellis, from the names you have quoted, I think we could sign the following:

1. Foyth 2. Barkley 3. Josh King.


 

 

01 Jun 2017 12:28:38
Eds,

Can you please provide updates if there are any, on,

Ryan Sessegnon, Thomas Lemur and Cenzig Under and anybody else you may have heard about. All I keep hearing is how everybody is close to leaving, but nobody is close to signing.

COYS.

THFC4EVER

{Ed002's Note - As has been previously explained Cenzig Under is subject to an offer. Sessegnon is a player the club are keen on but nothing will happen for a little while. I am not aware of interest in Lemar going anywhere.}


 

 

10 May 2017 13:18:32
Eds, is there any truth in the rumours that Everton are going to replace Ross Barkley with Youri Tielmanns, If so why are we not going direct for Tielmanns instead of Barkley? Also do we hold an interest in Quincy Promes at all?

Thanks

So with a little over 52hrs of the transfer window left and Levy being inept at doing anything quickly, it seems we will be signing absolutely no one. What this also means is that we will be needing to sign another manager in about 53hrs, because I really don't think Poch will want to stay with no new additions and no money to spend and having to work with Levy.

I have defended Levy for years, but now we are in a position to really push on Levy is now holding us back and needs to go, if and when Poch goes, to Barca, Madrid, Manchester United or wherever, we will struggle to get a manager of his caliber that is prepared to come in and work with shoestring budgets, evenly Pellegrini has spent over £100m this summer, Fulham, Wolves, Everton and Newcastle have brought in half decent players, players that Spurs would have had no problem in signing, I know there is no point in signing players just for the sake of signing someone, but Anderson (£42m) , Bernard (free) , Rondon (loan / £18m) , Moutinho (£6.5m) any of these would have improved our squad and barring Anderson were all relatively cheap and would be upgrades on current squad players.

I don't think even a late token signing should save Levy this time round, he has to go and go now so we may have a hope to keep Poch.

Levy and Lewis sell up and get out of my club and let some one take over who is willing to take us to the next level.

COYS.

Lets wait and see what business has been done after the window has closed. We have a world class training ground and stadium now which Mr Levy facilitated. We will also be able to finance better players and wages with that new stadium going forward.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 16:21:31
Mr Levy spent £200 million of THFCs money on a retractable pitch and Moussa Sissoko. Two of Martial, Kovacic or Pulisic, all very attainable. 5pm on Thursday is when the harshest of judgements will be made, and the bang average championship player Jack Grealish will not cut it. #ENICOUT #LEVYOUT #TAVISTOCKGROUPOUT #OLDMANONTHEBOATOUT.


3.) 07 Aug 2018 16:50:55
NES, Unless Levy pulls out the biggest rabbit ever from his magic hat, there is nothing he can do to appease fans after this window closes and when Poch leaves as he will given Levy' lack of backing, what do we do then? Players will flood out of the club, Kane, Lloris, Vertonghen, Eriksen, Alli and Son have all stated there love and commitment to Poch, not to Spurs, who will want to sign for us then. what's the point of having a world class stadium and training centre, if the players using it mediocre at best, how would we fill a 62,000 stadium out, with players such as Vorm, Sissoko, N'Koudou, Aurier etc. Without world class players the stadium doesn't get filled week in week out, without it getting filled, it doesn't make the financial difference you are talking about, its a double edged sword.

As Lucas said our retractable pitch has cost hundreds millions to design, build and install and so we can hold NFL at the stadium. Why not save that f**k off the oval ball sport and invest that money into players will generate extra income by taking us to the next level and selling merchandise.

Going back to the new stadium, it is easy to facilitate anything when you are the CEO of a large company. Yes Mr Levy is an excellent businessman, that has never been in question, but that is now the problem he is a businessman first and football man second and businessmen are money men, always interested in the bottom line today, not prepared to speculate for tomorrow. If Levy pulls out something special, I will happily apologise for my outburst, but if he doesn't he needs to leave along with ENIC and Lewis.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 17:46:32
Last season I came into your site expressing my concerns about the effects building a stadium can have on buying quality players.
I got slaughtered by some of your posters, who were adamant that the finance of the stadium would have no effect on your ability to sign players.
I made it clear that my interest in the process was purely selfish, as I was concerned what effect the proposed stadium build would have at my club.
I’m not saying definitively that you signing no players so far in this window is a result of the stadium but it must be part of the problem.
Good luck for the season lads and let’s hope the Premiership comes back to London.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 18:05:58
TH, if, if we don't sign any players of quality or suitable quality by the time the window has closed, then as Lucas said, that is the time to question our policy. However, EVERY top club in England is ran by investors or businessmen. So how is Levy etc any different with the income that our club generates, United for 1 have nearly double our income, even oddbod would realise that has to have an effect. we now have a stadium that will increase revenue allowing us to raise salaries etc.

It's very easy as a fan to WANT your club to progress and purchase £70m players, it's just not a reality for our club at present.

Be careful what you wish for. Do you remember the Alan Sugar days.


6.) 08 Aug 2018 15:38:44
The retractable pitch is a smart move for the club. For a 1 time cost it allows us to generate extra revenue from non-football events.

There is of course the NFL deal for 2+ games a year. This not only gives a potential £500k / game in profit, but also could mean an NFL franchise being based in London. That's impossible at the moment as neither Wembley nor Twickenham are suitable, and all other suitable grounds cannot share with a football team as the pitch will get torn up. Now I'm not a fan of the american version of football, but the income that we would get from a franchise would be huge.

Then there is the US exposure. NFL fans, who far outweigh "soccer" fans in the US will see a team regularly playing at our stadium. This could draw a lot of them into supporting us as a team. More shirt sales means more money for us both through better kit deals and increased sponsorship income as it breaks into the very tough US markets.

Then there is the possibility of hosting events like music or comedy shows in the stadium on the retractable NFL pitch. That can cope with it in a way that our pitch cannot because of the damage done and the time it takes to recover. And if Ed Sheran or Adele play at our stadium that is a ton of extra money as well.

Like any investment it will take a bt of time to make it back, but it increases our commercial revenue that will hold us in good stead for the long term - and I mean long after players like Kane have retired. And we've borrowed half the money for the stadium so it's not like we have no cash at all to buy players with. You don't double Kane's salary if you are broke do you?

Levy is a very good chairman. Bit pants at picking a manager I will admit, so I hope Poch stays. But let's not go back to the mid-90's hey?


7.) 08 Aug 2018 16:50:55
Wait until Thursday 5pm. I will say, as mentioned above, there is no point in buying for the sake of it. We have a list of targets, its not easy to get them.


8.) 08 Aug 2018 16:52:53
NES, I understand what you are saying and as you and Lucas have said the time to question is 5.01pm Thursday. I realise what a club earns reflects on what it can spend, but I am not asking to sign £70m+ player, the list I mentioned above cost less than £70m together, I am asking for signings that will improve my club and they are out there, our record signing is Sanchez @ circa £40m, this is a fee that Everton and Wet Spam have both beaten this summer, both teams who IMO do not have either the spending power or attractiveness that Tottenham have and we can offer Champions League football. There are many players around in the £30 - £45m bracket that would improve not only our squad, but potentially our first XI, but Levy has either watched them sign elsewhere or not bothered with them, our entire summer seems to have been centered on stealing Grealish from Villa, which has seriously backfired as now they do not even need to sell him due to new backing and investment.

Whats more frustrating, I was reading some Levy statements from 18 months ago when the new stadium was started, Levy stated the stadium build would categorically not effect Poch power to sign players, as the way the stadium was financed had no effect on the transfer budget from the team and that we would have a world class team going into our new stadium and as much as I love my team, I am the type of person who is honest about my own and barring a few players we are not world class and this is my point we are just a few players away from being a very good side.

That' not be silly, we have punched above our weight for the last 3-4 years, we are a solid top 6 team no doubt, but to be a solid top 4 team requires investment and improvement every year. Something we have not this year and had Sanchez not hit the ground running like he did we could say the same about last year.

Poch asked the question prior to the season finishing can we be brave, Levy has answered this with a resounding NO! and again IMO Levy has done this deliberately to show Poch who has the power.

I will hold my comments now until after Thursday' deadline and as said previously IF Levy does something amazing then I am happy to admit my mistakes and apologise for my negativity, but if he doesn't then I hope all Tottenham Hotspur fans will join me in declaring at every home and away game ENIC, Lewis and Levy leave our club NOW.


9.) 09 Aug 2018 10:01:55
TH we are all entitled to an opinion that is the whole point of these sites.

I'm mearly pointing out that Poch and Levy know what they are doing, as you say we have developed more than expected over the past 4 years.

My issue is moving on the players not required, maybe the world cup has affected this?

What IF the players that were not up to our expectations as fans, Poch sees development e. g. Lucas?

I for one do not want Levy and co out, I remember the days of Sugar too well. I don't believe Levy would not sign any players to prove he has the power, just doesn't make sense. Maybe the targets they had the just can't get, maybe they just can't move on the dead wood.

MAYBE, just maybe there is going to be a Van de Vaart signing. or maybe we have enough quality already within the squad and youth comming through.

Don't forget how much we spent on Ali, Dier etc spending big bucks doesn't always bring you jam.

Now C.O.Y.M.F.S.


 

 

31 Jul 2018 11:22:00
So, with a little over 9 days left, we have signed no one, poch doesn't seem confident that we will sign anyone. So who is to blame? Levy, Lewis, ENIC or all of them?

I have defended Levy time and again on here and numerous other places, but I firmly believe that this transfer windows failure lays firmly at Levy feet.

There have been many transfer made that Levy could have competed with, but hasn't, I appreciate we may not have fortunes to spend and to improve our team will take money. But players in the mould of Yarmolenko (17.5m) we should be looking at, not a first teamer but would improve the squad and give options to change games, the are many others who would have been viable options to improve the squad but have all been over looked.

I feel Levy is playing a very dangerous game, not about money as many of you suggest but over power, Poch outburst at the end of last season, about not knowing what the future holds, tottenham needing to be brave etc, I think this is Levy' way of showing Poch who is in charge. If this is the case, our next signing will need to be a manager as Poch will go and I for one would not blame him. Levy and ENIC really need to go and quickly or we will drop as quickly as we have rose.

I think it’s our scouts that’s the problem. Who really approved the purchases of Sissoko. Aurier, Llorente, Janssen, to name a few. We have been very poor of late when it comes to buying players.


2.) 31 Jul 2018 17:47:14
buy someone please am losing the will to live.


3.) 31 Jul 2018 18:47:48
The idea is to improve the squad, if that can not be done and there are suitable youth players coming through, then don't buy for the sake of a purchase.

The problem may not be purchasing but moving on current players. if no other teams are interested, or if the fees are not suitable, or the player does not want to move, how do we make space for any new comers. and at this late stage, what's the chances of moving any of them on.


4.) 31 Jul 2018 20:46:24
When the entire football world is telling you not to buy Moussa Sissoko don't whinge when you can't sell him two years later or think it's an excuse not to buy anyone. All these players we can't sell are Levy buys 100%, no one else. Just like Baldini wasting the Bale money, the Saha, Nelson transfer window to a crazy retractable pitch, it's all Daniel and we pay him half a million a month for the privilege. I'll make it easy for Daniel, two of these three, Martial, Kovacic or Pulisic. If you can't afford it sell the club.


5.) 31 Jul 2018 21:15:37
Add Zaha to those three and any 2 I'd be Happy with, but can't see it.


6.) 31 Jul 2018 21:20:51
Ps Lucas, it wasn't a whinge, just reality, Sissoko isn't the only one we need rid of. and clearly it is an excuse not to purchase anyone, we are permitted 25 players as stipulated by the premier league rules and if we can't ship out or loan out players on £70k a week, then what.

Our business SHOULD have been done earlier as Poch was clearly voicing off before. Now that is Levys fault.

But let's wait till the windows shut and then see where we are.

C.O.Y.S.


 

 

01 Sep 2017 12:09:18
A good transfer night, finsihed off by Barkley and Llorente rejecting Chelski for us is great and Lemar rejecting ARSEnal just made it near perfect. Would have liked to see a pacey winger come in, but hopefully Nkoudou or maybe Edwards will get some chances. Our season starts now.

Chelsea here in peace and reason. To be honest I woke up this morning quite satisfied with our dealings, don't get me wrong it could have been better as anything in life but I was satisfied, I also thought united, city and You guys did some pretty good business, better than us? For the two sides in Manchester I'd say yes, did they have to?! Of course they did I mean you lot and us walked the league basically last year I mean we knew some sides had to invest to catch up (Your neighbors though, What are they doing? ) . Liverpool also brought in a couple of good players better than you guys and us?! Probably not, however except their defense I think their side is relatively stronger.

That said I think it's easy to say things and laugh "Barkley and Llorente rejected Chelsea " to be honest I'm glad they did, you see players like chamberlain, Barkley etc. To me aren't what we needed to take it to the next level, I don't want to sound like a blue tinted Chelsea is the almighty kinda fan but if you look at the Chelsea team, the current Manchester teams anyone they bring in has to be next notch player to actually improve their squad to be able to compete for the champions league. i'm satisfied with the transfers we did and glad we missed out on a few cause to be honest I'd rather quality over quantity any day, laugh all you want about Barkley but even you have to be honest, no world class player would reject signing for Chelsea over spurs, I think you guys did great to keep your player, your defenders are too draw, Ali, Eriksen, Kane 5 star players that would walk into most teams in Europe and easily into any team in the country . Your project is fascinating, but unfortunately you guys are still on the level of trying to get enough player to complement them lot while to be honest Chelsea have a better team and just need maybe that one magical player in say Hazard bracket to become a powerhouse in European football.
So please don't gloat, that you got Llorente over us or that you might get Barkley, be pleased you kept your top hitters added some good quality to complement them while you work towards your project if not its sounds rather pathetic just wanting to have one over on us, I mean seriously, we're champions of England and just lacking a couple of world beaters to being one of the best in Europe, though you might not want to admit but we aren't on the same playing field atleast not yet, financially and in terms of expectations, in terms of drawing international players who actually want to win trophies.

Good luck for the season, good manager, good team with some 5 star players but unfortunately Wembley might see you lot miss out on top four. To be honest believe it or not in a fan who doesn't care much for hoping rival clubs fail all I want is for the blues to keep doing what they've done best in the last decade and a half win silverware.


2.) 01 Sep 2017 15:50:36
ELI,

Fair post my friend, I gloat over the Llorente and Barkley deals, as Chelsea have so often in the past used their financial muscle to take players from us at the last minute, so to be able to get one over you buys is good.

In repsects to you comments about the Manchester Clubs, Chelsea and Spurs, I think it is very bias of you to say that you teams are better, your overall squads may be better but starting XI it very close between Us, you and ManU. I think our starting XI is just as good as either Chelsea or ManU. There are not many players in either of them squads I would take to Spurs over what we have, 1 maybe 2 players tops, De Gea and Hazard that's its. The other way round, I think both Manu and Chelsea would take several of our, Toby, Alli, Dier, Kane, Eriksen, Rose and even Aurier now, that shows the strenghth of our starting XI, after that we struggle a little, but this Transfer window has gone a little way to sort that, I think we still lack real pace and width but that will come.

You stat about world class players choosing Chelsea over Spurs, I think we are starting to see the reprecussions of the likes of Chelsea, ManC and such, buying all the top players and a vast majority of them never playing and endlessly going on loan and then having to leave to rebuild their careers elsewhere, players now think twice about coming to them types of teams. Allowing teams like Tottenham to get better quality players thus levelling the playing fields.


3.) 01 Sep 2017 17:03:34
Gents, that's what's great about football, everyone has an opinion. We all want our team to be the best, bragging rights act.

There is some fair points by both parties There, I don't agree with you Eli with regards to top players etc. are your suggesting that Llorente (world cup winner) and Barkley are NOT top players? my counter argument to that would be, then why are you attempting to sign them?

Previously the top teams have paid higher fees and/ or wagers to secure players, that now seems to be swinging. Look at the Ox taking £60k less a week to go to Looserpool.

I further like the way we run our team. It's not a dig, but Chelsea, City and United have spent ridiculous amounts of money for their success. Looserpool have also spent a lot without the recent success of the other 3.

That said look at the Woolwich, there is some major issues within their club. The past players talk of winning 3 recent trophies (the fans state 6, Inc 3 community shield 😁 they'll be adding the hemorrhoids trophy soom) and that Wenger prioritised those trophies with their A team over the last 4 years because others did not and the gooners knew they couldn't succeed in the other competitions.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 11:27:06
A little bit of info I have heard from my friend at Spurs, don't know if this carries any weight but thought I would share, in light of Roses out burst, alledgedly Dier, Eriksen, Toby and indeed Rose are all looking to move on this summer. All citing Levy structure as the reason, Dier is still of interest to Bayern Munich, Eriksen is of interest to Liverpool and Barcelona, Toby if true could have his pick of teams and Rose will likely end up at ManU, which won't be to bad if we get cash and Shaw in return. Do any of the eds know of these players actively looking to move? Also read we turned down the £20m we were asking for for Wimmer? Strange if this is true, but if it is true I would say that it means no players will be coming in. A very difficult season coming up I think, players morale down and the WHL effect has gone and the struggles of wembley will start. If the above players do not leave this season they will be gone next year. Levy needs a reality check, whilst I agree that players fees and wages are becoming unsustainable, we should still be able to match wages offered be teams such as Stoke, West Brom and Crystal Palace, I do not see any Spurs player aasking for silly amounts such as £225k per week like Ozil and co, they just want what they would recieve else where, If Levy were to release to strings even slightly and pay people like Rose, Toby and our better players similar money to Kane and Lloris I think players would be happy.

I've heard the same story's also thfc, the rumours are Danny rose is a legend between the players for making levy a fool over wages and new players. All the players mentioned above definitely want out asap, the rumours I've heard in London is that Arsenal will sign alderwereld and will treble his 50 grand a week wages. For me our club has just gone pop thanks to Daniel levy and it's time for him to go.

Strange how your friend didn't tell you this before Rose's tantrum.


3.) 11 Aug 2017 16:59:48
I can guarantee you Ellis if spurs don't sort out alderwereld wages he'll be a Arsenal or Chelsea player very soon.


4.) 11 Aug 2017 19:30:05
Still not to worry, there is always next season!
I did warn you all last season what might happen with a new stadium being built and a cap on your wage structure.
I can't believe I'm saying this but all credit to Wenger for keeping Arsenal in the Champs league for so many seasons thus allowing them to pay off their stadium debt.
I have similar concerns about my club. Building stadiums changes the buying budget considerably!

Thanks Tom good job you come on here as none of us knew that. You just worry about life after Costa.


6.) 11 Aug 2017 23:03:13
Anything to help! Who's this Costa bloke?


7.) 11 Aug 2017 23:24:51
Dr, i don't think he would understand your sarcasm.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 05:57:16
Ellis, keep your head down for a while and go into a darkened room.
You were in total denial at the end of last season when I suggested this might happen.
You also said that NO player would leave Spurs this season.
It's all about money and desire to win pots with players. Your management along with fans will just have to except it and jog on!


9.) 12 Aug 2017 09:43:25
Ellis, has already said the stadium won't affect the money and transfers at all as they don't have to pay anything back for years or something, and raver thinks his financial knowledge is wonderful lmao 😂.


10.) 12 Aug 2017 15:43:15
Costa who Tommy! Let's see if your be saying that in a few weeks. Hazard off to Madrid. I see the Bridge is rocking today.


11.) 12 Aug 2017 17:26:04
You must be feeling very confident for next week now?


12.) 12 Aug 2017 23:40:25
Thomas, there is still 3 weeks left to buy and we are set to buy. Suggested what? You and Oddbod are a bit slow, the financing of the stadium will have no impact on our transfers, it will carry on as per norm.


13.) 13 Aug 2017 09:50:51
Ellis you have a selective memory!
YOU said at the end of last season NO first team player would leave your club.
YOU also went through a painful process of denial but inn the end acknowledged that building and financing a new stadium would have an effect on your clubs ability to splash the cash.
So, I am some what surprised you've started this season in complete denial.
See if you can answer this question. In the last two years who has been top of the league longer, Spurs or Huddersfield?


14.) 13 Aug 2017 12:15:07
none of the first eleven would be sold unless we wanted to sell! That's a big difference Mo Po wanted to sell Walker Tom.! We don't have to sell!

Rumour has it we're going to be spending £85m before the window shuts!


15.) 13 Aug 2017 13:09:08
Thomas, you have no idea what your talking about. Btw, a Chelsea fan mocking spurs, when your fans booed continuously yesterday because they feel you haven't spent enough money this summer! You couldn't make it up. Your club is a joke. How about you kept Solanke instead of wasting 70m on Morata and give some of your youngsters a chance.


16.) 13 Aug 2017 13:19:38
So that's a Net £35mil. Plus you are rumoured to be selling some fringe players. So my guess is like my club your spend will be minimal and like your club we are being prudent because we will be building a new stadium (although we have other reasons as well) in the next few years.
There are some of your fans (Ellis the financial guru) who are deluded enough to believe Mr Levy, that building a new stadium will still allow Spurs to buy players and retain players whilst still offering low wages. This idea defies logic. I suggest some fans wake up and smell the coffee!


17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:33:16
The stadium should be built for next season, therefore the extra revenue starts and therefore allows us to pay more wages without the worry of paying immediately for the stadium, which i say again is at our discretion until 2022 when the loan is payable. Penny dropping yet?


18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:33:46
Following your demented logic means the player can expect a wage cut in 2022 when you have to start paying back the massive loan!
Think before you post Ellis.


19.) 13 Aug 2017 17:24:12
Omg you are soo stupid its unreal. We can pay off at our discretion, eg if we get a large amount of money for naming rights that can be used. That could be anything upto 400m. The loan is structured so it won't hurt the team. that's the whole point. Its not my logic, its what Levy has opted for and it makes complete sense.


20.) 13 Aug 2017 17:36:21
I'm beginning to think you are related to Me Levy. Just listen to yourself!
Your on planet deluded!

Until now I have always been a supporter of Levy and defended time and again, but now it is time for him to go. We have been so close to something special for solong and he has let us down everytime. With the money now in the game, there are teams such as Stoke, Leicester, Crystal Palace and West Ham now paying wages over 120k per week and Levy is still trying to pay world class players stupid money. We need to spend to be competative, I agree paying silly money to average players isn't what we want or need, but when you look at players like Kane, Alli, Eriksen, Toby and Lloris all earning less than players like Lingard, Drinkwater, Zaha etc its no surprise that our players are having their heads turned. There are chairman all over the world who will not negotiate with Levy because of his penny pincing attitude. If Levy is not willing or just doesn't understand that the structure need to be changed then he needs to go now, I would rather lose him than half of our team, which is what will happen whilst he is in charge. Unless there is some fantastic signing in the pipeline, this season could see us go back to the dark days of Juande Ramos and Christain Gross.

I have already purchased my season ticket this year, but will not be purchasing again next year if things haven't changed.

LEVY OUT LEVY OUT LEVY OUT.

Totally disagree with you THFC4EVER. Our system has worked and we're keeping our club in good budgetary control. What people seem to be angling for is a sugar daddy coming in, PSG style, to slap stupid money about the place so that we can win trophies. If that happens, I stop coming to see Spurs. I don't want football to just be about who has the biggest budgets. I want to support a team that gets its sh** together, promotes hungry young players that want to play for the badge, and compete near the top of the table despite not dropping 250 million quid per window. Clearly I am very different to a lot of Spurs fans on this site, and I guess that's just something I have to get used to!


2.) 10 Aug 2017 20:59:07
I am not asking for a sugar daddy and have regularly said that. I am asking for Levy to be realistic in what he offers clubs and players. If stoke, Leicester and West Ham and teams as such can afford to pay in excess of 125k per week why can't we. I agree about players who want to play for the badge but to keep them players at the club you have to pay the going rate and Levy doesn't.

Didn't he score 19 and assist 11 times last season for PSG!?!

Not bad for someone who has no end product. To compare him to Walcott is completely unfair, he is a quality player, the only question is whether he can produce it in the EPL, this is a quick strong league and completely different from Lique 1, we have suffered with previous purchases from France although Moura is a different quality to N'Jie and GK.

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.

Raver, I can not see Defoe coming back, he alledgedly wants in excess of £100k per week and as good as he is, he ain't worth that sort of money, think you may have been closer with Carrick and Co.

I would like to think both Martial and Brozovic will be starters if they were to sign, but they won't, we will be lucky to even sign a token last gasp bargain basement signing whilst Levy is at the helm.

NES, I understand what you are saying and as you and Lucas have said the time to question is 5.01pm Thursday. I realise what a club earns reflects on what it can spend, but I am not asking to sign £70m+ player, the list I mentioned above cost less than £70m together, I am asking for signings that will improve my club and they are out there, our record signing is Sanchez @ circa £40m, this is a fee that Everton and Wet Spam have both beaten this summer, both teams who IMO do not have either the spending power or attractiveness that Tottenham have and we can offer Champions League football. There are many players around in the £30 - £45m bracket that would improve not only our squad, but potentially our first XI, but Levy has either watched them sign elsewhere or not bothered with them, our entire summer seems to have been centered on stealing Grealish from Villa, which has seriously backfired as now they do not even need to sell him due to new backing and investment.

Whats more frustrating, I was reading some Levy statements from 18 months ago when the new stadium was started, Levy stated the stadium build would categorically not effect Poch power to sign players, as the way the stadium was financed had no effect on the transfer budget from the team and that we would have a world class team going into our new stadium and as much as I love my team, I am the type of person who is honest about my own and barring a few players we are not world class and this is my point we are just a few players away from being a very good side.

That' not be silly, we have punched above our weight for the last 3-4 years, we are a solid top 6 team no doubt, but to be a solid top 4 team requires investment and improvement every year. Something we have not this year and had Sanchez not hit the ground running like he did we could say the same about last year.

Poch asked the question prior to the season finishing can we be brave, Levy has answered this with a resounding NO! and again IMO Levy has done this deliberately to show Poch who has the power.

I will hold my comments now until after Thursday' deadline and as said previously IF Levy does something amazing then I am happy to admit my mistakes and apologise for my negativity, but if he doesn't then I hope all Tottenham Hotspur fans will join me in declaring at every home and away game ENIC, Lewis and Levy leave our club NOW.

NES, Unless Levy pulls out the biggest rabbit ever from his magic hat, there is nothing he can do to appease fans after this window closes and when Poch leaves as he will given Levy' lack of backing, what do we do then? Players will flood out of the club, Kane, Lloris, Vertonghen, Eriksen, Alli and Son have all stated there love and commitment to Poch, not to Spurs, who will want to sign for us then. what's the point of having a world class stadium and training centre, if the players using it mediocre at best, how would we fill a 62,000 stadium out, with players such as Vorm, Sissoko, N'Koudou, Aurier etc. Without world class players the stadium doesn't get filled week in week out, without it getting filled, it doesn't make the financial difference you are talking about, its a double edged sword.

As Lucas said our retractable pitch has cost hundreds millions to design, build and install and so we can hold NFL at the stadium. Why not save that f**k off the oval ball sport and invest that money into players will generate extra income by taking us to the next level and selling merchandise.

Going back to the new stadium, it is easy to facilitate anything when you are the CEO of a large company. Yes Mr Levy is an excellent businessman, that has never been in question, but that is now the problem he is a businessman first and football man second and businessmen are money men, always interested in the bottom line today, not prepared to speculate for tomorrow. If Levy pulls out something special, I will happily apologise for my outburst, but if he doesn't he needs to leave along with ENIC and Lewis.

ELI,

Fair post my friend, I gloat over the Llorente and Barkley deals, as Chelsea have so often in the past used their financial muscle to take players from us at the last minute, so to be able to get one over you buys is good.

In repsects to you comments about the Manchester Clubs, Chelsea and Spurs, I think it is very bias of you to say that you teams are better, your overall squads may be better but starting XI it very close between Us, you and ManU. I think our starting XI is just as good as either Chelsea or ManU. There are not many players in either of them squads I would take to Spurs over what we have, 1 maybe 2 players tops, De Gea and Hazard that's its. The other way round, I think both Manu and Chelsea would take several of our, Toby, Alli, Dier, Kane, Eriksen, Rose and even Aurier now, that shows the strenghth of our starting XI, after that we struggle a little, but this Transfer window has gone a little way to sort that, I think we still lack real pace and width but that will come.

You stat about world class players choosing Chelsea over Spurs, I think we are starting to see the reprecussions of the likes of Chelsea, ManC and such, buying all the top players and a vast majority of them never playing and endlessly going on loan and then having to leave to rebuild their careers elsewhere, players now think twice about coming to them types of teams. Allowing teams like Tottenham to get better quality players thus levelling the playing fields.
