    Not totally about spurs but If you watched the dire England performance tonight you will be worried about the weekend because Dier was dire and Kane was so slow.How can anybody think Dier is an international player.Southgate is looking more like a bull****** every game he even praised Diers two performances???

    Don't do it to yourself , international football is up there with formula 1, golf & Test Cricket for excitement.
    The standard is appalling, the coach is appalling, the miniscule millpond of talent is appalling.

    I'm not gonna be bothering much with this upcoming season either, the club has spent too many years repeating the same mistakes over n over and this year isn't any different.
    If anything it's the most negligent window we've had since buying no 1.
    Why should/do we put ourselves through it ?
    The club has absolutely no interest in winning, it won't put a squad together capable of challenging, it's gonna finish short in whatever it fluked or grinds its way through and at the end of the season Kane goes followed by Son and then we are genuinely relegation fodder all because DrBald aids won't back the team or Manager.

    The way things are going (and look like continuing to go), I'm seriously wondering whether Spurs will survive the mismanagement of Levy/ENIC. They've supposedly spent nearly twenty years building for a golden future which shows no sign of materialising, have failed to build on the foundations for success laid by Jol, Redknapp and even Pochettino, and in the process have saddled the club with a debt which looks impossible to service without NFL games, concerts and, above all, 62,000 Spurs fans to stump up the cash. You can blame covid-19 if you want, but it doesn't explain a stadium built ten years too late, at double the planned cost, all at a time when the PL was wide open, and the sixty-year wait could so easily have been ended - it's a shambles, and the biggest mystery is how Mourinho became involved - is any job better than no job, or is it just the money? Optimism has never been my thing, and I've never faced a new season with less of it.

    Does anyone know who alistair Gold is he reports on the daily Hotspur and has a different player Spurs are interested in every day which come to nothing.So far he has suggested Vanbeek MGalhaes Watkins Doucoure Jamal Lewis Rodrigues Wilson Castagne Bale Allan all who have signed for other clubs..His current idea is Patson Daka from Salzburg who has scored lots of goals in the Bundesliga so expect him to sign for another club soon.I wonder if he is a Levy plant to try and fool the fans that Tottenham are trying to sign players.just a footnote I notice our great white hope of a few years ago Carroll has just signed for QPR on a free which sums up the Levy era

    I've read a couple of the articles and found them very interesting. It was a real gut-punch to be reminded of how neutral pundits purred over Poch's young guns when they first burst on the scene, and how it was seen as inevitable that trophies would surely follow.

    As we all know, the end result was a sum total of zero trophies, and a talented squad clearly mis-managed into terminal decline. The stuff about Dybala and Wijnaldum in one of the articles was particularly unsettling.

    The same Carroll that was released by Swansea in Jan!?!?
    substandard player all his career. Winks is only just better imo.

    On transfers..... I can see the usual last minute panic buy. same old same old. other clubs will stretch further ahead.
    The only positive is that we have a decent opening 8 games.

    As I've said before...... Kane will give it this season and leave. followed by Son and JM.
    (after which DL will go for Ledley as he won't have to spend a penny)

    So on the eve of a new season Ming the Penniless gets away with yet another con over the spurs fans.
    We start a new season without any depth, a questionable 1st team, a fixture pile up with lots of travel and not a hope of being in a title challenge or top 4 challenge.
    Still that training ground & stadium tho......

    I watched the Amazon documentary about Spurs.
    A couple of things stood out but one thing was the guy in charge of recruitment complaining about that the time of the transfer window being open was the worst time for him. To me that is like a player complaining about playing the final of a competition due to the pressure and the stress of playing in the final....

    A great person in charge of recruitment and sales would love the time when the transfer-window is open, all the hard work in between the transfer-window would finally be put to the test (hopefully come to fruition). Maybe that is what the guy in charge meant, possibly I misinterpreted what was being said.

    Following the win in Bulgaria the next thing for us spurs fans to look forward to are the signings of Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon!

    Huge signings indeed, but how do we think they will get on at spurs and where will they fit in! I think the signing of bale will be bitter, sweet the guy has had limited football and has aged but the technical ability he possesses is unremarkable and he is so Tottenham. Regulion has shown that he can win trophies and is another similar signing to Doherty who loves to get forward and impact the attack which is the way I feel jose wants his wing backs to play!
    Never the less Bale and Reguilon are the type of signings spurs need to make to compete with the top teams.

    Bale is not a striker, so it is an upgrade over Lucas/Lamela. Nice pick , but I am not sure what his impact will be at this stage of his career. Yet we still need a striker.
    Regulion is a very good signing. I am shocked, to be honest, that Spurs pulled it off.

    Well we desperately need new blood and quality both tick these boxes.
    Why we have to wait until the whole place is on fire til we attempt to put any of it out il never know.
    Even with these 2 we are still missing a playmaker and are still stock piled with awful players.

    No doubt that Bale is a hugely respected talent. Let's hope he stays injury free. A fit Bale is as good as anyone.
    I'll be honest and say I haven't watched much of Reguilon... but the reports look good.

    Hopefully our players will raise their games and winning mentality to match Bale's.

    a front 3 of Son, Kane and Bale will be exciting to watch.
    FBs look sorted.
    CB & CM still needed.

    everything that can he crossed... has been

    Don’t you feel our midfield is overrun with players? Winks, tanguy, Dele, gio, hoiberg, Sissoko, Dier if need be, gedson I feel midfielders aren’t needed?

    Centre back however I agree with incase we need a 3 back as watching toby and Dier Chase even Calvert-lewin at the weekend they looked very sluggish and it doesn’t look like Foyth is getting game time

    Our problem since the takeover of the club by the Enic group is that we have never worked in advance in the transfer market and that the coach in place was able to properly prepare for the new season. Each time, the new arrivals come at the last minute because Levy tries to do the right thing at the right price until the last moment. If we look at the clubs we all hate like Chelsea and Arsenul, the arrivals have been around for a while now and they already had an impact on the first game! Whatever the outcome of the transfers from Bale and Reguilon, Levy will gain more with more upstream work that would allow his coach to work calmly before the start of the new season! We clearly need to find a very good center-back and a playmaker, not to mention some quality support for Kane that would also give him a bit of competition and give him a bit of a breather. Despite everything, the coming season has taken a better turn for 48 hours ... Coys !

    Overrun by who???..... surely you don't mean Winks, Dele, gio, Sissoko & Dier??
    (Dele would play higher)
    I'll give NDombele and Hojbjerg more time (but not at the moment convinced by either)

    As a side....... I know the training complex is a large and exciting place....... but what the heck are Bale & Reguilon doing in there?
    .... maybe fighting over shirt number 3 :D
    (actually...anyone read the article that says Bale might take 11 and Lemela will be asked to pick another)

    Bale supposedly injured according to spurs medical team and out for a month you could not make it up.Lets hope it’s just because of lack of fitness or will it be another false dawn

    Just hope Levy has the bollocks to complete this painful rebuild that should have been done last summer. Halfway there if Bale gets anywhere near his best. Still need a left sided pacy centre half and a quality 2bd striker who can find the net regular when he plays not just be a bean pole planB like Llorente. Also I still worry about our centre mid. It lacks creativity and the ability to win the ball back and keep possession. Add that to this team we would be a force. Partey dias and Belotti be my choices.
