    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...

    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

    Does any body else think it strange that we Name players not good enough for our club ie Foyth Aurier Sanchez dier ndombele Winks but international managers still pick them.I find it amazing that Southgate picks Dier and Winks when we have some talented youngsters.Winks I think fits the Southgate system where he is a fetcher and carrier but Dier ..Is he a midfielder which he says is not his favoured position or centre half.If Southgate thinks he is international class defender then god help us

    with the exception of Kane, Son, Lloris and Toby......I think the rest of our players in international games are not winning the games for their countries. They may make the squads but they aren't making 'the' difference

    The England national team n many others just aren't very good anymore. The standard of football has been dipping for years , how many players from today's set up would get into say the 90s 96 98 2000 England squads ? Kane maybe TAA ....

    Same goes for the old top 4 where Utd Arse Chavs & Liverpool dominated for over a decade their teams were stock piled with World Class talent in almost every position , the current top 4 sides wouldn't have been anywhere near good enough to break into that top 4.

    The fact that Winks & Dier are premier League footballers let alone internationals proves this beyond doubt.

    Whatever fans think these guys are playing at the highest level so must posses some attributes/ skills that make them the 0.0000000000001% who make a good living out of kicking a ball.

    Think football is faster and more sports science based now, wouldn't be surprised if players now cover more Km per game than in the past. Hard to compare different eras. Think Sterling and Sancho would get into those teams.

    The biggest concern i have is Dier playing Cb, he hasn't played there much and will need time to adapt. JM has him as 1st pick CB (which i can't understand as Toby and Sanchez are better imo).
    I am hoping that he improves on his defensive awareness and improves his anticipation, he is pretty slow on the turn similar to Toby nowadays however when Toby is paired with Sanchez he plays better.
    Dier is pretty strong in the air and once he picks up speed is pretty fast he just lacks acceleration over 5-10yards. Can Jm turn him into a top defender? I never rated Cahill, however, he was good enough to win a few trophies so you never know. Coys

    I'm sorry but the argument players run more now or r quicker doesn't make up for the fact that they're technically inferior.
    Just look at how good player for player the 96 side were, an entire team of captains who were all undoubtedly world class in their positions barring a few in the over all squad.
    The standard is nowhere near that now.

    A really handy guide if you want to cut through the vast amount of clickbate and B.S. SkySports transfer rumours guys.

    This article recommends 5 or so guys who genuinely seem to have their finger on the pulse, and seem to know what's going on with various players and clubs.

    I did check out the top-rated guy for Spurs transfer rumours (Ben Pearce) and his Twitter account is noticeably quieter than others...:eek:

    Has Levy got some hidden gems up his sleeve???If not why did we let Newcastle sign Lewis from Norwich. Far better left back than what we have And a good price.I really feel we don’t have a policy and just sign what’s left at the end of the window.Unfortunately the media like a story and we are linked with so many players just for the news when there is no way Levy would pay the money for most of the players the press link us with.

    Watching the Amazon programme on our club which is extremely interesting but in episode5 I could not believe what Levy said about transfer windows.I quote that he said that he was extremely disappointed if at the end of a window spurs were not stronger.This from a man who let us go 2 windows without a single transfer.

    Everton sign 3 top class midfielders we sign one .Decoure would have been a great buy for us instead we still have ndombele who was awful in Watford friendly and it’s obvious Mourino does not fancy him.So we are left with Sissoko and Winks.I would prefer Allan and Decoure with Rodrigues any time.Why does this window feel like another total letdown by Levy.A month to go and no signing to excite.Also why no unloading of the rubbish .Even Newcastle are out doing us and they have purchased a left back made for us.Having watched the Amazon programme it appears that Mourino rates Davies
