    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 30th January 2019

    Trimming the squad is the bare minimum the club should try and achieve before the end of the window. Get Janssen, Nkoudou and Vorm off the books now and save the headache of trying to shift them in the summer. If we don’t see some targets being acquired then with the stadium completed and the...

    Adrien Rabiot

    Eyebrows were raised when Aurier was signed due to his prior attitude/off-field problems as well but he was still brought in. Poch puts a lot of emphasis on character but not everyone is a model professional like Kane, Winks, Sonny etc. And when there comes an opportunity to get someone in who's...

    I swear if Serge is just bored and on the wind-up :nailbiting:

    Hull have just signed Marc Pugh from Bournemouth by the way. Winger who can also play up-top...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 22nd January 2019

    If Janssen and N'Koudou do leave as expected with Dembele already gone the club will simply have no excuse if they fail to acquire at least one player. Not a bash on the ITK's as I understand they pass on what they hear in good faith but the reasoning that all our targets are simply just flat...

    Injury Updates

    Think it's gonna have to be the back three with Dier in front for the forseeable future as well. Know it's negative but shutting out teams and trying to nick one looks like our best bet going forward until we have players back.

    Injury Updates

    Losing your three main threats for over a month at the same time is absolutely brutal. Can't recall a injury crisis like this for some time. Winks, god bless him, is busting a gut to try and make himself more of a threat to try and compensate. Gonna need a couple of the others to do the same...

    Player Watch: Moussa Sissoko

    Don't know if this has been posted or not but a BBC broadcaster called James Burford who was at the training ground today has tweeted out that he spoke to Poch about Sissoko and was told his injury was only minor and would just miss the Fulham game.

    Timo Werner

    Not sure why people think it’s way out of the realms of possibility that he’d sign for us. Sonny was of a similar calibre at a similar club when we signed him. We’re a bigger club and better team that can offer him a better contract than the one he’s currently at. Our play style suits him down...

    Think I'd break down in tears if we actually managed to sign someone that good. The emotion would be too much to handle.

    Florian Grillitsch

    Saw a stat earlier saying only Thiago has a better dribble success rate than this guy in the Bundesliga this season. With Dembele on the way out it would make sense for us to be targeting a strong ball carrier to take his place in the squad. Sissoko is more of a transitional ball-carrier than a...

    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...
