    Sell to who?
    ......no team with CL ambition will buy our rubbish.
    No team outside of the CL will pay the money DL wants.

    we had a chance with Winks (£40m to Man City)..... but I fear that was probably an April fool that got lost in the lockdown

    Season starts in 10 days time the fixture list in the 1st 20 days is ridiculous, yet here we are about to start another 4 competition season with only 1 senior recognised striker, 1 senior left back, no Jan/Rose/CE/Jansen/Lorente replacements.
    Still a stockpile of the same perennial failures stealing a living at a club that's supposedly 'ambitious' and 'competitive'.
    The signings so far have been an attempt to plug 2 holes that have been neglected for 2-3 years and a 3rd choice keeper.
    Although Hojbjerg & Doherty look like solid if not a bit bland signings does anyone really believe that this is a team/club that's actually striving to do anything ?
    It's gonna be another whimper at all master of nothing season, a couple injures away from mid to lower table.

    If JM gets rid of NDumb, Foyth & Aurier......he will have moved up a step in my opinion! :D

    Strikers...... looks like we are talking to one or two of the Bournemouth lads

    My point as previously stated and agreed by Felon all the clubs that will be in contention have practically done their transfer business so the players can integrate before the first game.Once again not us we will still be chasing second rate players in October and will be 10 points behind the top four by then.We need to unload the free wheelers but there won’t be many takers which says a lot about our scouting in the pastTalking of which I see the man responsible for our useless scouting team has just been promoted.We have just brought in a head of football matters from Swansea whatever that means.

    Just read the article referred to and I am shocked to see the figures in black and white.Net spend of those in the premiership over the last 5 years of those in the premiership now is us in 19th place with spend of31 million.Money spent on signings since2018/2019 as a per cent of earnings 3 per cent which puts us bottom of the 20 clubs.Money spend on wages has us 20th.If you have 10 minutes to spare and you love the club as I do please read this article and see the real storey of levy and Edwards and be shocked that they have got away with it for so long

    As I said in an earlier post €31 mil put into team over last 5 years, 4 of which were CL participation seasons.
    Where's all the money gone?

    Ming the Penniless, the bald parasite is having us all over and people actually excuse it.

    As I said in a previous post Read the articles from world of Hotspur on the net. They are well thought out and get to the root of tottenhams problems since ENIC and Levy took over.I have always disliked Levy’s attitude but these articles have opened my eyes even further.Those supporters who think this is just another moan need to read these articles and then come on here and justify their Rose coloured attitude.I know there will be a certain personal opinion in these articles but they make me think that there is no way things will improve while the current people are in charge.The most damaging point in the articles is that Levy supposedly approached Edwards because he felt that football was an untapped money cow.See also how the Liverpool owner came with the same attitude but soon learned that this was not the way to run a famous club and look what happened.As I say please read the articles but be prepared to be left wondering if we will ever compete on a level playing field with this shower.Finally the articles mention my pet hate that spurs were the first club to grab on to the government aid to treat the staff at the club appallingly during Covid only to be embarrassed to reverting when the supporters showed their disgust

    the supporters showed their disgust

    Levy has always come across as a business man 1st and is primarily invested in the Land/ property side of the club rather than the football side.
    One trophy in 20 years on his watch is a very poor return for a club the size of Spurs over that period 4 trophies would be par for the course.
    A bit off topic but Arteta (whose been in management 2 minutes) has just won two trophies (Which really pissed me off) with worse players than what Mp and Arry had, it just goes to prove that being flexible and smart will be more successful than a Philosophy and "run about lads" approach. Highlighting the need to appoint the right manger and having the right structures in place to aid them.
    The one difference this time is that DL has hired a smart manager capable of putting together winning teams.

    Spurs have to get a CF before window closes and it looks like serge will leave apart from that its wait and see.

    If we take it that spurs will get a Cf and serge will leave then the squad would be pretty balanced with more than enough quality to put out a good team capable of winning EL or finishing in T0p 4.

    CentreForward: Kane. New CF
    Wide attack: Son, Lucas, Stevie.B and Lamela
    Attacking Mid: Dele. Locelso
    CM
    : Winks. Tanguy. Sisoko.
    DM: Peh
    LB:
    Davies. Sess
    RB:
    Doherty.
    CB: Dier. Toby. Sanchez. Tanganga. Foyth. CVV

    The highlighted players are players who could all have positive contributions. Doherty and Peh are meant to be upgrades on what spurs had. Dele, Tanguy, Sess, steve.b and locelso all had injury hit seasons and if injury free should all step up on last seasons form. Obviously the squad still needs a few buys but over the next two windows it should be spot on. Coys

    Are you serious palmovertop 4 with our back four excusing Docherty and our creativity in midfield because Tanguy will be gone because Mourino won’t stand for his attitude.We need at least 3 more buys and quickly.I notice nobody has come back on my suggestion to read the world of Hotspur articles .Rose coloured or what

    I'd agree with most, the one difference might be that I see Lamela more of an AM than a wide attacking player. But to be honest I am not quite sure where his best position is...
     
  15. Big fran Guest

    That centre mid looks very thin if we are looking at gio as primarily a CAM. Ndombele will be sold or will not get any better if he stays so you can discount him. That leaves us with winks Holbjerg sissoko. The decision to loan skipp is baffling. Doucoure at 25m is an absolute steal. Partey still available for 45m would be ideal. Donny van der beek was a steal at 38m and walks into our side. We are so weak in that area top 4 is out of reach but for mourinho

    I don’t see why people constantly look at other clubs and try and gauge their purchases against ours.
    DL is never going to really put his hand in his pocket. That will not change.
    So high profile names are out.
    (Bale may be the exception....but only if they figure out a plan for his wages)

    £15m recent purchases is the way it will be.
    Even if we sell NDumb for £50m.....JM will get less than half to spend.
    Sp hopefully JM makes good transfer decisions

    Because other clubs do it correctly and people who accept the way Levy does it are the problem with our club.He won’t change while we have people thinking we can’t change him .Stop paying the highest prices for the least output and see what happens but unfortunately our support lacks the kahunos to do anything to rock the boat

    I can't believe anyone still says we have Lamela as if it's a credible spot that doesn't need drastically moving on , this isn't exclusive to just Coco the clown but as it's his 8th year of stealing a living at Spurs he is the biggest example of how forgivingly unambitious we are.
    Just naming players that play in positions doesn't mean they're good enough ie Davies , Winks .........

    Does any one think levy and Mourino have a plan this window because really good bargains seem to go elsewhere.VAN DE BEEK 35milgoes to unitedand we supposedly make a late offer Decoure goes to everton And he would have been so much better than Sissoko.Everton have bought 3 class players while we still wait for a major one.Grealish still at Villa and the Norwich left back still there.I get the impression now that players don’t want to come to us because it probably means they will be on the poorest wages in the premiership.No wonder we are laughed at when even teams in the lower half of the table spend more than we do

    Foyth, Aurier, Sanchez, Ndombele, Dier, Gedson, Rose....
    that's 10 players who shouldn't be anywhere near our squad.
    For a club with any ambition.... 10 players is far too many to carry

    And some of the better players need to be more consistent...... Bergy, Alli, Lo Cel, Moura

    Inconsistency and poor performances puts that at 14 who can't be trusted for a full 90 minutes
