    Winter Transfer Wishlist

    Really feel like the arse has gone out from under our scouting the last couple of years as well. Seemed like we used to pick up low-key players regularly who went on to be serious first team players. Since Dele and Dier we haven't really gone out and pulled anything like that off. Time will tell...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    I think it's a balancing act though. I don't think it would've been wise to have just chucked Skipp straight in from the start. Now that he's had a few minutes and looked comfortable the opportunities should come more regular now. Kane and Winks weren't just thrown straight in at 17/18 years...

    Barrios on his way to us?

    If you remove Dembele and Wanyama from the equation our midfield options if using a 3 would be: Winks, Barrios, Dier, Dele, Eriksen, Sissoko, Amos, Skipp. Good blend of technical ability and athleticism in that group if you ask me. Don't agree that Winks is "someway" off as well. Pre and post...

    Barrios on his way to us?

    Not sure why there's so much clamour for a Dembele replacement with Winks playing the way he is. Feel like he's establishing himself as the fulcrum of our midfield as Dembele's Spurs career is winding down. And with Wanyama struggling physically, Amos out for the season and with Poch using a...

    Jack Grealish

    True but we've got to the stage now where the players that will improve us will cost top dollar. The attitude of Poch, which I agree with is, we either go for those players or we go for no one. The frustrating thing is Levy will always pick the latter option.

    Stanislav Lobotka

    We need someone good in transition be that through passing or dribbling. He’s good at both.

    Lewis Cook

    Harsh. He’s had one bad ankle injury and now he’s had surgery those problems are hopefully behind him.

    Lewis Cook

    Don’t see what he does that Winks can’t do. With the other young midfielders we have as well I would’ve hoped for someone a bit more dynamic and established. Still a great young player though.

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Just want this window to close now. Deep down we all know how it ends. We've been frustrated and let down in the past but with the stakes so much higher this time around it's near enough sickening. Would love to be surprised over the next 9 days but I just don't see it happening. Ready for the...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 29th July

    Because the way we've conducted ourselves in pursuing the targets that have been revealed isn't a huge cause for optimism.

    Jack Grealish

    It's irrelevant whether you think Grealish would've been a good signing or not. The deeply frustrating thing here is Levy playing silly bollocks and sticking the boot into a club on it's arse to try and save pennies on what should've been a straightforward deal. His approach to the transfer...

    What a monumental waste of time and energy

    Spurs pre-season 2018

    He'll get minutes over the next two games I'm sure. Huge experience just to be on the tour at his age.

    Djené Dakonam

    Come on then. Who's gonna pretend to know everything about this guy. I would normally but I just don't have the energy.

    Can we all agree no Danny Rose googling jokes for this one please? This window has been testing enough.
