    Well we had the chance to sign Grealish and not for huge money but the Charlatan wanted it even cheaper and was trying to screw villa over to massage his own ego and make the deal all about him.

    Madison was also available at our price range but again we were hiding as usual during the transfer window.

    There's just too many names to mention, a catalogue of missed opportunities all because of the idiot in charge.

    According to the rumour mill Levy plans to give Mourino another year whether or not we win anything or finish top four.I don’t think I can watch another season of the dross systems and tactics he gives us .who is going to decide who we buy and sell I suspect Levy will be in charge as Jose won’t rock the gravy chain.Surely Kane must see the light and demand a move and who would blame him and we will sign 5 or6 second rate players as usual

    Harry Winks to Southampton! .......please say it’s true
    If we can get a swap deal with Ward-Prowse I’d take it.

    and swap Sanchez for Vestetgaard while they are at it......

    .......next up.....NDombele for Phillips (Leeds).....

    Doherty for Aarons.......

    ......the list could go on.......

    According to latest reports in the press, we are in for a treat if JM is still in place next season and gets his man....he is keen on a reunion with Marouane Fellaini as well as making Vestergaard a priority at CB. If that is JM’s ideal signings, next season will be worse than this (so let’s hope it’s just paper talk).

    IMO, we should be trying to sign Ezri Konsa from Villa, Joachim Andersen from Lyon, Max Aarons from Norwich and Sam Johnstone from WBA. We could raise enough by selling Lloris, Sanchez, Aurier, Doherty and Dier.

    If we could start with them then get to MF...bring back Skipp and swap Winks for Ward-Prouse at Southampton and try to sign Bissouma from Brighton by selling Sissoko and Lamela.

    I believe there are four players who'll enter into their final year of their contracts? If so then decisions needs to be made about them: Sell, extend or allow to leave on a free

    Lloris
    Difficult one, if he wants to stay then extend. Not sure if he should be captain though

    Lamela
    Ages ago he did great in Italy, so maybe an Italian club came with an offer and if so then sell. If he isn't sold then do not extend until it is clear that his injuries are behind him

    Sissoko
    Nobody will buy him, please do not extend his contract again so allow him to leave on a free

    Aurier
    Rumour has it that he might want to leave and there might be buyers. If he is sold then there is hope that a younger, better and cheaper player can replace him. Realistically I believe two out of those three might be possible. A younger and better will most certainly be more expensive etc

    There are a few additional big decisions to be made, this summer will be an interesting one & the situation with COVID does not make it easier.

    Hopefully the players and the manager focus on the remaining matches, there'll be plenty of time to deal with transfers but the matches are coming soon.

    It's just a shambles, Sissoko still has 2 years left on the extension he was offered by the club despite not being able to actually play football.
    The sheer fact that if Lamela sees his contract out Hel be due a Testimonial (same for Davies Dier & Alli) just goes to show where the ambition is in this club.
    Lloris replacement should've been in pipeline last 2-3 years instead we've got Head n Shoulders on a free who claps n shouts more than the Captain but is equally as calamitous.
    I predict Lloris will either get an extension that's unwarranted or walk on a free, Lamela will get a move for peanuts having been an absolute waste of time n money, Sissoko will see out his time at Spurs another horrific waste of money & time n then it's just Aurrier who may have a taker.
    For a sell to buy club we literally have nothing of any worth than the 2 that keep us from being in the bottom half.

    Shambles

    I can still count 14 poor players we need to get rid of.
    Until then we'll remain sh!te and painful to watch (if they keep getting selected)
    [any back that includes Aurier, Doherty, Sanchez, Dier and/or Davies is just asking to concede]

    Lloris I could take or leave but it can't be easy for a keeper of a very decent international team to see that shower in front of him.
    And not just one player...... sometimes all 4 of them!

    I'm not a JM fan but I'd be interested to see how it would go if he could change a lot of them

    Getting rid of 14 players ain’t gonna happen 16 if You include Kane and son.one way to get rid of people like Sissoko with time left on their contracts is to pay them up which is better than them sitting on the bench causing unrest even if it costs a few Bob.unfortunately unlike a lot of other clubs we don’t have a particularly good Under21 squad apart from the odd 2or three so can’t throw in a few of them.This is another Levy failure by not having a youth policy and giving jobs to the boys..As much as I love Ledley he is not managerial and should not have been promoted as Mourinos assistant.whoever we buy we must retain some of the dross as back up and that is a job in itself
    While passing I must condemn the animals abusing Son whatever you are doing stop now bringing shame on our club

    Can’t believe the rumours that we are after Boateng 32 years old.Is this a foretaste of the Mourino revolution especially as he wants. Fellnani as well.
     
  10. Guesty Guest

    I agree with you...... but.....
    Boateng would be better than Sanchez or Dier or Davies
    Fellani would put more effort and physicality in than Lamela or Winks or Lo Celso or Alli

    The fact that they are better than some of our defeatists is not the answer to rebuilding our club which will take more than a couple of old age pensioners not wanted by the big boys

    Just saw the news about Mourinho, not sure what to make of that. I suppose the manager position is now a topic for transfers.

    So new manager is the top priority, next priority is probably the players entering into the final year of their contracts and after that then deal with players who want more playing time. Play them more, sell them or loan them out.

    Alli

    Not sure if he'll get more playing time, impossible to price due to the limited playing time so maybe a loan out?

    Skipp
    Reports are the he might be one of the best players in the team winning the Championship. Will he get serious minutes with Spurs or is another loan the best option? Norwich might want to have him for another year which might give him serious minutes in the EPL

    Winks
    If Skipp stays then if Winks want minutes then he might need to go. I'd prefer a loan but sale might be what happens

    CBs
    Rodon and Tanganga need serious minutes to develop, Rodon is getting them (for now), maybe Tanganga would benefit from a loan. Sanchez... If an offer comes in then maybe sell?

    The squad is in my opinion still a bit too big and also unbalanced. Might need defensive players to allow for the attacking players to go forward. Am not a fan of buying an attacking player and putting him or another attacking player into a defensive role - the square peg etc argument.

    & about what happened with Mourinho:

    There'll probably be some Non-Disclosure-Agreements (NDA) in place so it might take a while to get know what happened. The ones who know can't and won't speak and the ones who speak don't know.

    My guess is that the structure at Spurs isn't right. In the Amazon-series it was possible to see a situation where a player (Rose) threatened to go above the head of the manager. Sometimes it is needed and a good thing, often it is undermining the manager and causing a toxic environment. A good manager/boss will make sure it doesn't happen, if the manager/boss does not have the backing of his superior to make it stop then it is time to leave.
    A hands-on approach, being approachable, might look good but it comes at the cost of undermining the in-between. Might have cost the job of two managers. Or maybe not, I speak so I obviously do not know :p

    Am hoping that the (mythical?) Mourinho-fanboys and the actual existing Mourinho-haters will do what they did when they followed Mourinho to Spurs -> follow him out and away. The toxic negativity spread by the haters was both tiresome and boring.

    Now the time is not to follow the example set by Arsenal - bad recruitment of players and continual sacking of managers. Long-term thinking please.
