Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
A second summer signing seems imminent at Spurs, with numerous media outlets reporting that Vincent Janssen is London-bound from AZ Alkmaar. With Janssen set for his ”dream move”, Spurs are surprising many by getting their business done early this season — a trait that has often eluded Daniel Levy in previous transfer windows.
The only aspect more impressive than Spurs’ willingness to act (and not react) in the transfer market, is that they are addressing areas of the squad that were in clear need of strengthening.
Like for like signings… you could say...
With Wanayama already signed up, we have one very good signing. but already I hate the transfer window again.
Not a day has gone by yet where we haven't been linked with a striker or midfielder. In fact, I think at last count we had been linked with over 20 players. And not one of them, Wanyama aside has turned out to be anything other than utter bull ****!

After another season has closed and I have now re entered the world of reality after my rather re actionary and misguided post match report after the defeat at Newcastle, I thought it was time for my end of season awards ceremony.
Spurs have finished in the highest position for years and with Pochettino now signed up, we can look forward to next season with optimism.
So, here I go with the first award!!!
Goal of the season
Spurs have scored some great goals this season and Harry Kane has been responsible for a fair number of those. His second against...
I’ve made it into the office early. Headphones on, music full blast, head down. I begin to close my incognito windows on Google Chrome.
"Why is life so sh*t?" reads one.
"Does God hate me?" reads another.
"Painless ways to kill yourself," completes this trifecta of depression.
One by one, colleague after colleague enters. Sarah's first. I hate this cow at the best of times, let alone today. I raise my head as slowly as possible; just enough to acknowledge her existence, but not enough to indicate that I'm willing to instigate any sort of meaningful conversation....
