Any talk on the safety of Mourinhos job. Seems some serious unrest, not just with the fans but also in the squad right now. I'd expect him to see out the season, but it's been a hard watch (not that that comes as a surprise)


{Ed002's Note - I don't want to get in to the issue too much but Spurs have taken advice from a third-party over managerial options in the future. It does not mean anything will happen immediately.}

Not expecting much in January, but any updates on players being looked at or players being allowed to move on ed?

Happy new year all.


{Ed002's Note - Don't expect much in January. Before the start of next season a GK, CB and versatile RW are the main priorities. In the perfect world Mr Mourinho would like Henderson, Skriniar and Sabitzer.

Dean Henderson (G) A potential HL replacement in the summer - he is interesting Spurs.
Milan Skriniar (CB) Expensive option - but first choice.
Merih Demiral (CB) His agent wants a foothold in the English market and has offered the player to Liverpool and Spurs - Juventus want €50M which seems too high.
Gian Marco Ferrari (CB) wanted as cover by Spurs and Inter.
Roger Ibanez (CB) Roma will buy the player on June 30 at the end of his loan - with Leicester, Spurs and Porto keen on taking the player then if Roma want to turn a profit.
Ozan Kabak (CB) has been of past interest to both Manchester sides, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich but the asking price has always been see as high, although it seemed to be something between €35M and €40M it will have reduced due to the pandemic and Schalke having financial issues. The interest of the Manchester sides went when he left Galatasaray for Stuttgart and he hit an age where he could never qualify as Home Grown in England - and that is something Liverpool should concern themselves with as well. I am not so sure he is the starter Liverpool have been looking for, but he will be cheaper than both Llorente and Diego Carlos and could still push Joe Gomez into the background. He is well thought of by Borussia Dortmund who wanted Tanguy Kouassi as a replacement for Toprak and Belardi but he moved to Bayern Munich resulting in their making an approach and being told he is not for sale - but their declared an interest will now have gone after his disgusting behaviour. Schalke say they have also been approached by Juventus and Leicester in addition to Spurs who also made an approach in the summer. A far better option for Liverpool than Mandi but Schalke, who were reluctant to sell, will let him leave after his five game ban and the huge backlash there has been over him spitting at an opponent from Werder Bremen at the time of the pandemic. A foul human being.
Ben White (CB) an alternative to Pau Torres for Manchester United, but seen as expensive because of the "English premium". Spurs have sustained interest but the funding will go on other priorities. Brighton will look to hang on to him.
Sami Khedira (CM/DM) Will be allowed to leave Juventus in January. The player says he is keen to work with Ancelotti again - it is unclear if Everton would look to him - makes little or no sense. Spurs may offer a solution for 18 months.
Lucas Vazquez (RW) Spurs were talking with Real Madrid in the summer as the price is seen as affordable but player wished to stay and has rejected a move to Qatar - but a new contract has not been agreed as was expected - Leeds and Milan might be interested. Much will depend on what happens with Gareth Bale.
Leon Bailey (LW/RW) A player who has had his mojo drifting away and Bayer Leverkusen are open to moving on this winter. Spurs are keen but want the price to drop further. Prior interest of Everton and Leeds has drifted away - Everton already being over loaded with players who are predominently LW and Leeds have preferred options. Arsenal may offer an option.
Paulo Dybala (AM/F) is available to sell or trade as the situation degrades further as again a problem with Paratici arises - but the club want to agree a new deal but scratch the clause which is causing the problem. The original issue that blighted contract negotiations would be an issue for potential buyers. The player is open to a move and may well have thrown away a year of his career. Available at €100M last summer, would need to halve to find a cash buyer.
Marcel Sabitzer (RW/AM/CM) RBL again expect approaches in January. Milan may try again to put a package together. Interest from Jose Mourinho at Spurs remains but a decision would need to be taken over Gareth Bale.
Gareth Bale (RW/F) Wages would be the issue.
Kyle Joseph (S) Sottish kid wanted for the U23s
Potential departures:
Hugo Lloris (G)
Paulo Gazzaniga (G) available in January
Danny Rose (LB) Spurs want to buy him out of his contract for half of the value that remains. Rose will be happy to become a Free Agent but wants the full amount paid up. Available in January.
Harry Winks (DM/CM) Spurs have told interested sides he is not for sale.
Gedson Fernandes (RM) will probably let him return to Benfica in January and pay up his loan - the loan has not worked out for anyone.
Dele Alli (AM) PSG are open to taking him on an initial loan in January - Spurs want him to see out the season and have no intention of letting him leave on loan.
Carlos Vinicius (S) Spurs are unlikely to take up their option and he will continue his journeyman ways.

Any news on the new buses.

Good info Ed cheers.



21 Apr 2018 01:34:39
hi ed. Noticed on some other pages you've been shedding some light on interest of players. Wondering if you could give give js in or out activity interet/ acfivity at spurs

Hopefully get some more readers on the site.


{Ed002's Note - Sure. It is tough to understand what money will be available and it looks like, with one exception, a summer of a few replacements:
Out Perhaps:
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
Danny Rose (LB)
Mousa Dembele (M)
Erik Lamela (RW)
Fernando Llorente (S)

Being looked at:
Ryan Sessegnon (LB) - looks unlikely at this time
Layvin Kurzawa (LB) - will be available at a good price, and Spurs are very keen
Jonny Evans (CB) - I expect Spurs will push for a deal
Jonathan Tah (CB) - it looks unlikely
Abdoulaye Doucoure (M) - seen as a suitable replacement for Dembele
Mateo Kovacic (M) - I am not sure that Spurs would continue to look at Kovacic should another right winger arrive - although he could be seen as a more versatile option to Lamela whereas the RWs being looked at are more traditional and would need to vie with Lucas Moura for a place.
Andrija Zivkovic (AM) - another versatile alternative to Lamela - but there is interest from elsewhere and price could be a major issue
James Maddison (AM) - the player should think very carefully if he is looking to move to the PL, and Leicester will give him playing time that Spurs may struggle to do, but very much a MP type of player
Wilfried Zaha (RW) - there is long-term interest and Spurs could again return.
Suso (RW) - seems unlikely, but they have looked at Suso.
Malcom (RW) - He has been looked at and is available.
Gareth Bale (F) - Will be offered to Manchester United and most definately for sale. Concerns will be over fitbness and price but Real Madrid would be open to a deal involving Toby Alderweireld - and It is the sort of thing that Spurs may look to do to placate the fans in what might be a couple of tight years financially
Jann-Fiete Arp (S) - Spurs have been very keen but it looks very likely that a move elsewhere has been tentatively agreed already
Paco Alcacer (s) - Alcacer is again attracting attention but game time will be key to any move.}

1.) 21 Apr 2018 14:36:49
Thank you Ed! Much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

2.) 21 Apr 2018 14:41:46
Would the move for Jan Fiete Arp be to Bayern, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - They are discussing terms.}



13 Dec 2013 09:34:37
Ed I've noticed on a couple of occasions you've spoken that Spurs have a made an error in signing Lamela, is this due to the finances or just that the lad isn't ready and possibly won't be for a long time?

I understand that you won't want to go into detail but it just interested me that's all


{Ed002's Note - It was a significant mistake as I explained previously. There is little point going in to detail as it upsets folks who see him as the second coming.}

1.) I know there will always be people that don't agree with what you say, and won't accept your opinion. I'll try and have a look through and see what you explained previously.

2.) Ed002 who cares if some folk get upset i'm sure they will cope. I and I expect others would appreciate it if you could breifly explain as I am very curious. Thanks in advance.

3.) 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.}

4.) Would like to know your explanation why Edd?

Ed1, interested to hear your views on Todd Cantwell? Seems to be a bright spark in this Norwich team at the moment, but unsure if he is ready for a big step up.


{Ed001's Note - bit lightweight for my liking. Has the ability but I have seen him bottle a couple of challenges, which to me is a big no-no, especially in this era when you don't have to worry about full-blooded tackles. If he was braver, he would defo be ready for a step up, but that bravery issue bothers me.}

1.) 22 Dec 2019 10:45:16
We should have got Jack grealish when we had the chance, he's top quality.



26 Aug 2014 11:06:26
Could we have turned a corner, a decent performance after a Europa game!


1.) Let's see how we get on this weekend, if we play like we did against QPR we will score against the reds, but if we defend like we did against QPR we will concede also. Going to be playing a different class of opposition.

We seem to push our highline to far up and get caught with balls through and over the top leaving space for the likes of Sturridge and Sterling to break into . and let's not forget Balotelli will likely make a first appearance for at least part of the game and then anything could happen.



15 Apr 2014 11:25:37
I would really enjoy Poccetino at Spurs.

He plays attractive football and the way the team is set up, high pressing, and a keep the ball style. This is what I want my Spurs playing, not the dross at the moment.

Ship out a few people that look like they couldn't care less, and see what we can really do. Obviously wouldn't be disappointed in Van Gaal, but am now thinking that due to his age, will probably only be around for 2 or so years, and then we're back to square one.

The only downside for Poccetino for me, is I don't want to see my manager with a translator! but we can't have it all can we!




06 Feb 2014 11:24:16
I think Townsend back on the left could be a real boost, if played on the left with Rose, I think they could have a very good attacking threat. If Sherwood has intentions of playing him on the right, it will **** me off.

But now which formation to play. 4-2-3-1? 4-3-3? or 4-4-2. I feel neither Adebayor or Soldado will excel up top on there own. Adebayor seems to drift out on to the wings and leave no one in the box.

Even so, against Everton, I would like to see a 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 with Paulinho as a box to box midfielder.

Walker - Chiriches - Vertonghen - Rose
Lennon Eriksen Townsend


1.) Good team, but Paulinho seems to slow the play down, perhaps Dembele there!

2.) Paulinho looked like he was picking up the pace before his last injury. Sandro is out anyway so Dembele and Paulinho for me with Townsend and Lennon on the wings with Eriksen playing behind Adebayor. Please no Siggurdson, Chadli or Bentaleb starting the mqtch.

3.) I know exactly what you mean spursdave. But he seems to be playing a lot better under Sherwood. I really am a big fan of Dembele, but I just can't call it. I think Paulinho will offer more goals

As for Chadli and Sigurdsson. If they didn't play another game, I'd be a happy man. Siggy isn't a wide man and we have better options centrally

4.) Spurski, we need a DM in there, can play Dembele and Paulinho, they both push forward so it would be like playing Bentaleb with one of them!



03 Jan 2014 13:29:11
Would like to see Sherwood go with Lamela up top tomorrow with Soldado to see if this would actually work. At the beginning of this season we had 2 full strong teams on paper, (cup & league) which were completely different, now were struggling to get 1 together! Injuries have hit us hard.


1.) Completely agree been waiting to see this partnership since they both signed.

Cheers for the update ed, you know we appreciate the info you can pass on
Also just for your opinion what do you think of Mason and Bentaleb this season and Eriksens development, like to hear your opinion in a comparison with Coutinho also?

Also if you're still up, may or pacman?


{Ed001's Note - I think both Mason and Bentaleb have grown impressively this season, just shows what can happen when players are given a chance. Both look capable of filling the midfield roles for years to come, if the club can keep hold of them, which isn't certain as Man City like Mason.

Eriksen has become far better than I expected, some players wither when they step up to a tougher league, he has stood up and taken responsibility. That is what has impressed me most, his willingness to stand up and be counted. He shows great character to go with the ability and that will take him far.

I really hope Pacman knocks the disrespectful wife beating prcik out cold and ends his career tonight, but I expect Mayweather to grind out a win on points. Sadly.}

I couldn't wish a nicer person on Arsenal. I know his talent is fantastic, but if anyone could f**k up a dressing room, he's got to be your guy

I think Hulk was more the media trying to put 2 and 2 together with Hulk & AVB and believe that without AVB there isn't even the smallest chance.

his wages would make anyone in our team look miniscule, and don't think he is as good as hyped

Spitting at another person is terrible full stop. If the footage was Carragher reacting, arguing with a few gestures and insults, yeah ok that’d be forgotten about, but spitting at another human is not on in any circumstance.

I like firmino but they're completely different players, I'd have firmino over son if we were talking the forward role. But as a wide player would take son.

Fair play AJH, I'm sure people will dig you out (like dags, who they shouldn't dig, him and gunner62 look for some banter and give at least some constructive criticism) about posting here. You're correct, I think (hope) we will turn this around. We have the players to do so, but if we miss a few players we are bang in trouble.

Without Dier or Wanyama to protect the back 3/ 5 we look bang in trouble. Hopefully the manager can see this and maybe put a back 4 in place with Dier protecting and maybe we will look a little more stable and more potent in attack

At present, things look rosy in Le Arse and UTD gardens (in terms of results at UTD, not always performance) . But this weekend is sure to at least weaken one of you if not both.
