Spurs have enquired about Wolves striker Leo Bonatini on a loan until the end of the season.

Good grief might as well drag the raver out of retirement instead, will definitely do a better job than the dross we are linked with.

21 Jan 2019 01:44:04
I am mystified why Poch puts Sterling in the bench and with 4 minutes to go is not even considering an introduction when we are drawing 1-1.

Absolutely pointless signing average players to pack a squad when you have so many promising youngsters like Marcus Edwards, Oliver Skipp, Foyth, Troy Parrott and Kazaiah Sterling.

Poch needs to trust these youngsters and allow them to flourish. I would love to see the following players in the FA Cup games; Gazziniga, Foyth, N’Koudou, Skipp, Edwards and Sterling.

Moura is back imminently, Son won’t be long, Sissoko will soon be back and then Kane will be declared fit mid February as he recovers so quickly.

21 Jan 2019 11:28:34
Your spurs knowledge is outstanding oracle, how can Marcus Edwards play in the cup when he is out on loan in Holland? 😂😂.

21 Jan 2019 16:35:15
Gunnerbod he is still a youth player and loans can be terminated. It looks unlikely but an option.

Contract Players aged 20 or under on 1st July immediately preceding the Season in question,

may be registered on a Youth Loan.

Youth Loans may not extend beyond the date of the Player's 21st birthday.

23 Jan 2019 16:54:16
Oracle, how long until Nathan Ake joins?

15 Jan 2019 19:40:32
Harry Kane is out until March then, also sissoko is out for 5 weeks and son will miss four games if levy and Lewis don't act now to bring in reinforcements then the fans should be calling for them to sell up to someone who will take the club forward.

{Ed033's Note - Time to dye your football tops yellow?

Raver you are such a negative supporter it is untrue. You talk as though the season is about to implode and your previous post proved you to be a drama queen.

Kane our fir 4-8 weeks is a major worry but he has hardly been firing the f Kate has he. Son is a major loss as he is on fire, but the Asian Cup finishes soon so hardly long term is it. Sissoko has been a beast of late but Dier is now fit again and is more than capable of forming a strong partnership with Winks.

Is Lloris, Rose, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Trippier, Dier, Winks, Moura, Eriksen, Deke Alli and Moura such a bad team? Gazziniga, Sanchez, Foyth, Davies, Aurier and Llorente on the bench. Hardly a disaster is it. Perhaps a packed midfield will stifle Chelsea in the second leg and grind out a draw. Borrussia Dortmund in the Champions League are no great team and the squad with Jane and Simon is more than capable. Lastly the Premiership games are Fulham away then Watford, Newcastle and Leicester at home before Burnley away. Also consider Son will have rejoined for most of these games.

I believe we have to sign a couple of players to keep the momentum, but hardly a disaster if we didn’t. Stop focussing on all the damn negatives:

1. Best stadium in the Premiership nearly finished.
2. Best manager in the Premiership and £100m compensation if Manchester United poach him.
3. Amazing players the best we have seen for decades.
4. 3rd in the Premiership and looking fairly likely to secure top 4 Champions League for next year.
5. Ahead 1-0 in the League cup game against our arch enemy and favourite to qualify for the final.
6. In the FA Cup proper and a relatively easy fixture.
7. Still alive in the Champions League last 16 and favourite to qualify.
8. Very healthy balance sheet and plenty of money to sign players if the write players are available.

Wait until the end of January and you might be surprised. If there are no signing I still fancy the squad to handle this difficult period.

Come on you Spurs!

Stay united and Eriksen, Alli, Lamela and Moura it is your time to shine. COYS.

16 Jan 2019 16:03:47
What total and utter nonsense. Take out Eriksen, Alli and Toby and that is Liability FC. 1. Maybe and not ready until next season. 2. Pep? Klopp? Where did you get £100 mil from? 3. Other than Harry who is better than GB or Luka? 4. Manchester United in form, Chelsea get going, top four is up in the air now. 5. Why are we favourites, a drained out depleted mismanaged squad. 6. Irrelevant, not got the squad down to chairman and manager. 7. Again why are we favourites to beat a good Dortmund team who at worst are equal with us minus Harry. 8. The one thing certain fans had to cling onto, is it even true anymore and who cares anyway? In all seriousness though we have got the highest paid boardroom in the Prem and that is something to be very proud of.

16 Jan 2019 21:07:06
Negative supporter we've not won a big trophy in 28 years i think I have a right to be dissappointed with that, you mention bench above I think its a shocking bench. Best manager in the league who has won absolutely nothing In his whole career, amazing players again who have done nothing in their carrers including international bar Loris, I am what you call a very honest poster.

17 Jan 2019 01:36:57
Raver you are a pessimistic swine and totally unreasonable. Spurs were a mediocre club mid table consistency and even had a couple of years tinkering in the edges of the relegation zone.

Our squad over those years included the likes of Dozzell, Tremanzani, Dominguez, Ben Thatcher, Acimovic, Toda, Blondel, Ariel Fox, Chris Armstrong, Postiga, Zamora, Andy Reid, Grzegorz Rasiak, Danny Murphy, Prince Boateng, Davenport, Pleikosa, John Scales, Zeki Fryers, Vega, Ghaly, Andy Booth, Stambouli, Etherington, Nicola Berti, Stuart Nethercott, Justin Edinburgh, Gilberto, Paul Staltieri, Gary Doherty, Andy Gray, Anthony Gardner, Andy Sinton etc etc.

We have a superb squad with promising youth. An amazing stadium even if it is next year. Regular Champions League football and top 4 Premships consistency. We also have the best manager and all this from a real club run without cheating the financial fair play rules.

How can we compete with the financial clout of Chelsea, Man City and even Liverpool and Man Utd. We needed a bigger stadium and more consistency which we now have. This will help increase revenues sharply and allow Spurs to become the next super heavyweight. I imagine a billionaire owner takeover is likely once the new season commences.

Never seen Spurs look so strong and competing at the top level in many competitions. We have a tricky period ahead but I am confident our squad will see us through and we will sign a couple of new players.


17 Jan 2019 11:23:36
George Graham and Ramos had absolutely crap sides but they will always be remembered by the raver as they lifted cups, you go in record books for winning things not finishing 4th every season.

17 Jan 2019 17:47:17
Oracle, I like you as a person and you are a good poster, footballs
all about opinions in which we all differ about. I'm just disappointed you called me a pessimistic swine as I get called that all the time from Mrs raver 😁.

17 Jan 2019 22:31:58
Lol Raver. 😂

Yes they won cups but we were terrible and I would prefer my trips around Europe and remember paying Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund and other Major night more than some league or FA Cup.

We are now on the verge of glory and I am frustrated that we cannot make that final investment to seize the day, but we have a great squad make no mistake.

Troy Parrett, Kazaiah Sterling and Marcus Edwards are desperate to shine. Now is the time to tell them to ‘Go earn your Spurs! ’ I believe they can deliver and I would love to see Foyth as CDM for a few games as he looks like he has the lot.


18 Jan 2019 12:39:07
Oracle, IMO, the stadium will not improve our financial clout as the objective is just more money into the ENIC coffers and a bigger bonus for levy at the end of the financial year.

We will sell players at 2019/ 2020 prices BUT will insist on buying at 2010/ 2012 prices!

23 Jan 2019 10:01:45
I understand the scelticism but don’t worry we will be great and shine very soon. If Malcom signs in the next feed days along with a strong CM then things might look very different.

25 Jan 2019 14:55:44
Troy Parrott - 16 years old

Kazaiah Sterling - never played a professional game in his career

Marcus Edwards - never impressed when been out on loan or given first team opportunites and has a massive attitude problem.

Stop going on about these kids like they are going to save us because they are not!

13 Jan 2019 19:30:20
Another crap performance from spurs, the last few weeks we've been so poor lost to wolves, had the runaround against Utd and Chelsea we will finish 5th and have zero trophies again thanks to the crap board in charge and the way overrated pochetinho, its like a crap film you've seen hundreds of times watching spurs as you know the outcome come May every season . I'm off to damage my liver again tonight and I blame it on stress and depression thanks to Tottenham Hotspur.

Agree0 2Disagree

14 Jan 2019 08:00:30
That was not a crap Spurs performance, I'm a united fan and thought we slightly edged the first half but spurs dominated all the second half and probably should have won the game with the chances they created.

14 Jan 2019 11:32:26
You got it wrong raver, poch is a great manager, it’s the board that won’t back him, who do you think would do a better job with very limited resources?

15 Jan 2019 17:13:08
Agreed TOT, realistically it should have been a draw. 1m either side of the keeper we could have been 4 goals in front. That didn’t happen so we move on.

Spurs were the better team in the 2nd half considering we had 10 men. Lamela should have stayed in the dugout (useless) move him on at the end of the season he’d had his chance. I’d move the keeper on as well.

11 Jan 2019 23:39:03
Hi Ed, any truth in Victor Wanyamma going back to Celtic on loan? Or is it just pie in the sky for Celtic fans? Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I just know Spurs want to get him fully fit for a sale. It does seem unlikely though.}

Agree0 1Disagree

13 Jan 2019 20:49:41
Thanks for the reply Ed, can only hope as he was stand out in Scotland.

09 Jan 2019 16:05:26
Ed, will Spurs look to replace Dembele this window or wait till the summer?

{Ed001's Note - you already bought Sissoko and Wanyama to replace him in previous windows!}

Agree0 3Disagree

10 Jan 2019 02:11:55
That does make sense. Thanks Ed!

Ed would you be running with a group of Winks, Sissokho, Dier and half a Wanyama for 6 months?

{Ed001's Note - no, because none of them are close to being as good as Dembele was. If you want to challenge for league titles you should be improving the team not weakening it as you have been since Poch took over.

When Poch took over Lloris was top class, now he is not at his best and is average.

The defence was the best back 4 in the league. Now you have full backs that are adequate at best.

The midfield had Dembele purring like a Rolls-Royce and running things, now he is going you will have Winks, who is ok but a long way from Dembele. Wanyama has the first touch of an elephant in clogs with stones in them. Sissoko runs around a lot but has League Two level technique.

The only area that has improved is the attack and that is because Son has found his feet and the other players have, such as Kane and Alli, are moving towards their peak. You have not actually brought any improvements in, just the players there have got better.

Spurs really need to change that and start bringing in players who improve the team, rather than donkeys like Aurier.}

10 Jan 2019 07:12:24
Bitter truth that. Going to be really tough to get those top tier players with the stadium situation now. Hopefully we solve at least some of our problems in the summer!

{Ed001's Note - it is why some people think Poch is some kind of miracle worker to even keep Spurs in contention. I disagree, I think he has to take some of the blame for Spurs not actually winning any trophies under him as he is, in large part, choosing the signings. He would rather have the Davinson Sanchez, Moussa Sissoko, Serge Aurier and Victor Wanyama brute force player in the team. Don't get me wrong, you need a player or two like that to protect the rest, but it is about getting a balance and the balance has gone too far towards physicality at the moment.

I fail to see how the new stadium will change things either, at least in the shorter term. It is not going to suddenly bring in a massive influx of cash, you still have to pay off the building costs over the next few years after all. Initially it will only be a step forward, rather than a leap. What it does, imo, is safeguard Spurs' future against the uncertainty of future TV rights money. If that bubble bursts then Spurs are in a magnificent position to capitalise.}

10 Jan 2019 12:18:00
And yet with an injury ravaged team, no signings, no pre season, playing every game away, here spurs are only 6 points off the media darlings Liverpool.

10 Jan 2019 13:35:28
I agree Ed. Signings like Sissokho do puzzle you, but it's worked out well for him this season! I hoping we get some technicians in the middle soon. Or in the stadium, both need them.

Quick question Ed, what is your opinion of Dier? I thought he was doing marvellously and improving earlier, but he seems to have plateaued recently. Is it form, injuries or just plain ceiling?

{Ed001's Note - I deliberately left him out of any mentions because I have been thinking the same. He does seem to have lost his way recently but I think a lot of that is not having the calmness of Dembele alongside him. Dembele draws players to him constantly, so all Dier was doing was mopping up and then moving the ball on quickly. Without Dembele he is expected to do more, with and without the ball, and I simply think it is beyond him. His limitations are exposed, rather than him being able to just use his strengths.}

10 Jan 2019 15:49:00
Unfortunately, and for Dier, it's going to be very tough to replace Dembele's calmness. Do you by chance a list of CMs to watch out for?

{Ed001's Note - not in the style of Dembele, but Spurs are one of the clubs that would like to take Barella.}

10 Jan 2019 16:14:39
In January Ed?

{Ed001's Note - they certainly were showing interest, but I don't expect him to leave Italy, he wants too many guarantees.}

10 Jan 2019 17:16:42
That won't stop me from hoping though!

How do guarantees of playing time work out Ed? Are the players promised a certain number of games?

{Ed001's Note - he is after guaranteed starts when fit. Sometimes players are promised a certain number. I know of players, who are dropping down from bigger teams, who have been promised to start every game when fit within their contract. Not sure if that still happens now though. Clubs signing someone who brought people through the gates would do that in the past.}

10 Jan 2019 21:34:11
I can't see us buying a replacement any time soon. It will mean more minutes for Skipp this season so we may see a bit more of him and what he is made of, he seems to have great potential.

The one thing we desperately need is a CM that can go past a player which then opens up space for the front 3. This is what Dembele has been brilliant at. When he goes past one or two and then gives it we create so much more. We need to have that as in my eyes Dier Wanyama, Winks and Skipp are really all competing for the same posistion and currently Sissoko is the only one for the other CM spot if Dembele goes.

I really like Sissoko in terms of speed stamina work rate and dribbling but technically he isn't good enough and has little to no end product. He does a lung busting 40 yard run, goes past 3 and then misses a 5 yard square pass!

I would also like to add that Dembele has been my favourite player to watch live for the last 3 years and he has completely bossed many of the games I've been to. The guy has such strength and technique, made it look so easy at times, and I will miss him!

11 Jan 2019 06:51:44
That is a tough thing to guarantee and especially when written in the contract Ed. Must be really tough to enforce it when it goes wrong.

Things like these remind me why Ed 002 asks to not get into nitty gritty of contracts.

{Ed001's Note - it has caused no end of problems in the past.}

11 Jan 2019 06:52:33
How are you doing Ed? I'm missing some of your anecdotes in the daily round ups!

{Ed001's Note - sorry you are missing them, I got asked to do them as separate articles now, so I have been doing that, it is just everything got put on the backburner while my family were over for Xmas and New Year. Only see them once a year (at most) as we have been living in different countries to each other for the last few years as they retired to Spain initially.}

11 Jan 2019 08:36:43
Hoping you spent some quality time with the family. I must protest, you don't spend enough time together!

{Ed001's Note - we did spend a good few weeks of quality time. And some that was not quality too! Like when my dad decided to forget his bag containing passports, flight tickets and wallet somewhere on a day out and we all had to run around to try and find it as he only realised he had lost it a few hours before they were due to fly home.}

11 Jan 2019 13:41:50
That's stressful and scary! Perhaps he was hinting he wanted to extend his little visit?

{Ed001's Note - I think it is just old age mate, he gets a little confused...}

14 Jan 2019 13:34:55
Make that 9 Ellis ;)

03 Jan 2019 23:19:27
Spurs have bid for Phil Foden of Man City (no chance imo, just like when we tried getting Sancho) .

We also want Hudson-Odoi, again no chance with that given its Chelsea.

Agree9 5Disagree

05 Jan 2019 17:53:08
i believe Hudson Odoi has already agreed personal terms with Bayern.

06 Jan 2019 10:17:25
I didn't know that. No chance that Chelsea would sell to us. Same happened with Sancho of Dortmund, City wouldn't sell to us but there is a lot of hatred between spurs and Chelsea.

07 Jan 2019 07:39:37
Having the pleasure of knowing the Hudson-Odoi family personally, I can tell you:
A) Spurs have had absolutely no contact.
B) Bayern have approached him, but no personal terms are agreed. Wages are not the issue.

08 Jan 2019 11:36:50
Wrong as usual Ellis.

08 Jan 2019 11:41:05
Apologies Ellis. It wasn’t you was wrong!

Makes a change!

08 Jan 2019 23:07:34
Haha you Chelsea boys make me laugh. From one pretending to be friends with Callum and another pretending he owned a chain of restaurants.

One thing we can all agree on is that Spurs spanked you Chelsea again, yet again.

BTW, I didn't see anyone anywhere saying spurs wanted Ndombele, most of you were 'who', or Isco or anyone else I have been right on. Enjoy.

09 Jan 2019 00:04:36
When I’m wrong Ellis I put my hands up and apologise.

Will you NOW admit I was spot on about your stadium and the earliest it would be ready for matches would be Feb 2019.

As far as tonight’s contest goes I thought we bossed the game but at the end of the day we got beat.

All to play for at the bridge but I guess you are favourites.

Oh and just for clarification I NO longer own any restaurants, they are now run by my family.

09 Jan 2019 12:59:44
No Thomas, You was guessing, scaremongering. You said the club would fail lots of 'safety' aspects. I said it was down to some faulty wiring.

Finance wise, the club has been affected badly by Brexit, cost of materials etc as well as the hold up to moving in although Mace will have to cough up for some of that. Luckily we are a well run self sufficient club.

09 Jan 2019 17:42:04
Ellis, you also said the stadium will not affect the transfer budget, even your manager has said it has yet you still don’t think it does 😂😂😂.

09 Jan 2019 19:24:32
Wrong Ellis, I said as a matter of FACT that the ground had failed a ridiculous amount of checks and passed on a handful.

I’m pretty sure I also told you and your fellow supporters that your senior management were told pre-season that the earliest time the ground would be ready was Feb 2019.

Again, I think I also said that the offer of compensation to season ticket holders wasn’t generous.

I also said that surely there should be an investigation.

Further, I said I was more concerned about our proposed stadium build and the effect it can have on the team.

09 Jan 2019 20:44:34
The information about compensation was already known.

An investigation into what?

09 Jan 2019 20:55:01
Hampstead Heath STALKER, no one knew the affects of Brexit because it happened after. The thing is it's desperate bitter Gooners and rivals that were living in hope that our transfer budget would be affected just because we're building a new stadium.

You also thought that just because we didn't sign anyone it was down to having no money. WRONG. No point in buying for the sake of it. Any player that Spurs buy will have to be very very good to get into the team. Lichsteiner and Guendozi wouldn't even get in our reserve team.

Another problem facing us is the homegrown quota. Selling players will help with this as well as injecting extra money into the budget.

Spurs have money to spend Oddbod, the scouts are very busy, sorry.

09 Jan 2019 21:12:12
Thomas, I forgot to comment on 'the club failed on a ridiculous amount of checks', 💩.

09 Jan 2019 22:41:45
I know three long term Spurs season ticket holders who feel very angry about how Spurs have sold and compensated them.

They are canvassing support for joint season ticket action against the Spurs management.

I’ve said this so many times, I’m only interested in this whole stadium process as I have fears we may well find ourselves in a similar situation if we ever build a new stadium.

Football fans, in my opinion, at some clubs are an after thought.

09 Jan 2019 23:06:38
I know 100s of season ticket holders who are very angry with the amounts paid back. Some think it's an interest free loan to Spurs but of course this is rubbish. It's just bad luck what's happened to Spurs with Brexit and the wiring, spursy.

29 Dec 2018 21:09:28
Lots of rumours that we have agreed a deal for Arp of Hamburg.

Agree12 3Disagree

29 Dec 2018 23:19:06
Great prospect for the future but very unlikely to have any impact on the season unless used in a cup game or as a sub when games are won.

28 Dec 2018 23:00:48
Hi Ed002,

Any possibility for an update on targets?

Would be much appreciated.

{Ed033's Note - Ed002 has made an audio Sharkopod with general football team updates.

Agree0 1Disagree

17 Dec 2018 14:41:33

Spurs have agreed a fee with Bournemouth for Nathan Ake and are discussing personal terms.

Agree11 4Disagree

18 Dec 2018 17:40:44
Why would we want him?

18 Dec 2018 23:28:42
Because Toby is being courted by the Manchester Mafia and Barcelona Massive!

19 Dec 2018 07:37:31
Nathan Ake isn't fit to lace Tobys boots. If he does go we need De Ligt or someone of a much higher level than Ake. He would arguably be 4th choice in my opinion.

19 Dec 2018 09:13:55
God save us if it's Ake.

19 Dec 2018 13:05:27
If we want Poch to leave and join yeenited, then sign Nathan Ake!

30 Oct 2018 08:40:27
Another pathetic performance from this crap club yet again, please poch and levy pack your bags and jet off to Real Madrid as you are taking spurs nowhere. It’s also time for the awful trippier and dier dropped down a division as they are both crap and overhyped by the English media.

I’m in the Subaru cheesed off with oasis on the sounds system in cigarettes and alcohol and that’s where I’m heading, off for a few Jamaican cigarettes and plenty of liquid refreshments to make the raver happy with life as spurs certainly doesn’t make that happen.

Agree0 6Disagree

11 Nov 2018 15:37:13
Raver get a grip will you. We are flying high in the Premiership after ZERO investment, injuries to star players and a late Workd Cup exposure from so many first XI stars.

Still mathematically in the Champions League albeit slightly dissapointing, but did you expect us to beat Barcelona? Interl Milan was an open game which we deserved a draw a least, and now we have beaten PSV it isn’t all gloom.

Everyone knows we need a few top players to challenge or repacked some the first XI. Sessegnon, Zaha and Martial were players we should have signed but their values are getting silly now.

January will be interesting as it looks increasingly clear Poch is either getting backed or leaving for Real Madrid. I cannot help thinking that Lamela, Moura, Son, Eriksen and Dele Alli desperately want to challenge for their places, and this competition is proving healthy. One top quality striker in January along with Sessegnon who will be wondering about his future after Fulham’s year and Spurs will look like title contenders. Perhaps a CM if real pedigree and class to make this happen.


22 Nov 2018 01:07:37
Youri Tielemans and Adrien Rabiot both on the radar. Just imagine the thought of both in and Dembele and Sissoko out. Dier and Winks could cover those two obvious frost choice CM and CDM positions.

Sessegnon must be scared at Fulham and is going nowhere. Time he moved to Spurs and we let Rose go enjoy life at another club.

One world class striker to challenge Kane and we will be title contenders.

24 Nov 2018 18:51:21
Title contenders, classic Oracle 😂😂😂.

27 Nov 2018 12:40:29
Oracle, I an safely tell you that Sissko is going nowhere! W. r. t Rabiot, unless he's coming on a free transfer, don't waste your time. His wages is out of our pay range.

05 Jan 2019 09:07:08
Who looks right now and Raver get a grip and be a fan and stop being a moaner. Your rent looks stupid now!
