Hi Eds, probably a strange question, but do you have any knoledge of our outgoing players ( as whoever we sign can't be much worse)
Especially the following :
Aurier-cannot defend, always out of position letting wingers drift behind him and he couldn't pick a cross at the Vatacan.
Davis- defending is suspect, but going forward, stops at half way and passes back.
Sissoko- Touch of baby elephant and final third, like a headless chicken.
Rose, too interested in opinions than football.
CCV / KWP not at the level required.
The following three I would suggest, would only be to raise funds
Lamella, Moura and Alli. These always give 110% but with financial restrictions, could give us some welcome finances.
Any info on these and any others would be most welcome.

{Ed002's Note - Hugo Lloris (G) time has come but will squeeze an extra season out of him to save money.
Kyle Walker-Peters (RB) Crystal Palace and Southampton have been in discussions with Spurs over taking KWP on loan for next season as the player is keen to get game time after this season’s loan has been disrupted. The problem is that Spurs are keen to sell Serge Aurier and Milan are pushing for a loan to buy (as they do not have the funds to buy him and a low bid will fall on deaf ears). Milan are also being pushed to take Kenny Tete. If Aurier departs it means that any move for KWP could well be delayed until Spurs can get their replacement (ideally Elseid Hysaj) in.
Serge Aurier (RB) available.
Danny Rose (LB) available.
Jan Vertonghen (CB) is out of contract and Mr Mourinho wants to rebuild the defence.
Juan Foyth (CB) will be allowed to move on if cover is found.
Eric Dier (DM) may be available.
Tanguy Ndombele (CM) not really working out at Spurs hence their looking to Geoffrey Kongdogbia and although the club want to persist with TN Mr Mourinho doesn't and the player says he is at the top of his game. Barcelona are still interested and have a number of players that could interest Spurs including Nelson Semedo (RB) - who is being offered around as a means of raising cash; Sumuel Umtiti (CB) - but I fear he would very quickly frustrate Mr Mourinho; and of course Philippe Coutinho (AM/LW). Spurs will not get a sale at a reasonable price so an exchange might be viable. If Spurs could soft out the wages for Coutinho, Barcelona may be open to a deal.

Cheers Ed002, many thanks for your insight, only dissapointment is, youve not listed sissoko and I still have faith that Foyth will turn into a good player if given a run of games.

Hi Eds, has all interest been dropped in Jay Rodriguez?.Seems strange that we were linked with him for nearly a year while injured, but now fit, nothing has been mentioned.I know he signed a contract till 2019, but this hasn't stopped us before.

Matt221171

{Ed001's Note - clubs are just waiting to see how he gets on with his recovery. His injury was worse than first thought, hence the length of time he was out extending. No one wants to take a chance of a player struggling the way Falcao did last season.}

Thanks Ed001

Hi Eds, Do you know how much of a kitty we have for this transfer window or is it only from sales of players?
Also, how long before the squad is fully assessed, so we can identify the key areas for our transfer policy.
Surely everyone can see we desperately need a LB, CB, CF as our priorities.
Cheers, Matt.

Matt221171

{Ed001's Note - there is defo a kitty of some kind, over and above sale of players, as Poch was made some guarantees when he took the job. I have no idea how much, just that he was made a guarantee he would be given funds. He has also been spending some time reviewing the squad and discussing things with Levy etc, oh and both parties agreed with a need to add strength to the club in left back and forward positions prior to him taking the job. I am told that Sevilla refused Liverpool's offer for Montero mainly on the basis of the interest Spurs are showing in him, so maybe something could happen there. Unless Sevilla have read the situation wrongly.}


1.) Cheers Ed001, great reply. I have more confidence for this season if we can address the correct positions, unlike last season where we overspent in the midfield. I appreciate we need at least 2 players for each position to cover injuries, create competition and even the chance to rest players, but this can only work after making sure the first 11 are good enough to challenge for the top 4 then have quality in depth.

{Ed001's Note - Poch has asked for, and received, final say on the positions bought and sold. By that, I mean he will say which positions he wants to strengthen and give a list of the players he wants for each position. It won't be like it was under AVB, where he was just getting handed players and told to sort a team out of that lot. Even when the players incoming were ones he had specifically said he didn't want! That should help the club out a lot. By the way, you will soon see who actually wants to play for Spurs, as Poch will have the players in twice a day working hard. There will be a few murmurs and moans about that from the lazy!}


2.) Again, many thanks Ed001, looks like we might finally be moving in the right direction as a club, cheers Matt.

{Ed001's Note - Poch will sort the men from the boys, that is for sure. Now it is just up to the club to back him, because there will be players who don't buy in to his regime. So it might be a slow start, as the players struggle to come to terms with the extra fitness work they are being asked to do. My worry is that Levy will panic and pull the trigger without giving him time to turn it around. After all Levy is no longer truly safe in his role either, he is seen as on dodgy ground, far too many mistakes lately for such a high profile and well paid job. If he has the courage to stand behind Poch, I can see him making a real long term difference to the club.}

Hi Ed 002, I have just been through the last 2 pages of rumours looking for posts replied to by yourself concerning Lamela. I would be very interested to read your opinion of why he was a bad buy?. I think he has great potential, but at £30m was way too expensive so agree that financially, it could be a bad buy and could be money wasted. When you look at Bale and Walcott to name just 2, £15m seems to be the most we should pay for potential.
Cheers, Matt.

{Ed002's Note - The reasons are unimportant. It is not worth the grief to explain.}
