    Tanguy Ndombele

    I only watched about a third of that video but saw enough. Looks like a hybrid of Sissoko and Dembele.

    Yes considering Brandt, Ziyech, and Van De Beek were all shut down by JJ in span of a few minutes, perhaps this one still has some legs....

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 16th May 2019

    Thanks for the info Trix. Isn't the rumored release clause for Grealish around 60 mil? (Not a question for Trix - just a general statement). Why we didn't just pay what they asked before the owner's switch last year still makes no sense.

    Well, that JJ tweet seems pretty definitive. If we don't go for it this summer, we never will. From a stature and publicity perspective (new stadium and CL final) and seemingly from a financial perspective, this is the moment.

    So does Trix's info and response basically mean we are still in the 20-25 mill range for players going forward? As I look at Everton, Wolves, and Leicester, the names I see are in that range with the exception of Richarlison who was 35 mill. Looks like mainly Championship names (Maddison...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Well said. Seriously, if they aren't going to spend and back him, what more can he accomplish here? He may win the Champions League. He would have taken Spurs to the top of the mountain. Anything else from here would be a big letdown, and while I think fans would understand if we remained...

    Yes but as the story goes, Levy hesitated trying to get a lower price from the original owners instead of just paying what they asked (which I think was around 25 mill). He could have had a deal right away with the old owners but haggled. Now his quoted release clause is supposed to be 60 mill.

    I know Trix has repeatedly said the money was there, but it is hard for me to blame Poch because we simply don't know who the secondary options that were available that Poch turned down. Yes, it is not always possible to get the first choice (DeJong, DeLigt,etc) and Poch probably does need to...

    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    I am glad Herc is sharing info again and it is always appreciated. Given we haven't gotten one player signed in three winows, a "slim chance" likely means no chance, probably because the fee is too high and we won't spend the money. Hope I am wrong because Ndombele seems perfect - This...

    Coming to terms with the player is usually the easy part. Coming to terms with the team is the part that Levy has issues with. Grealish is the latest example last year, when the player was desperate to come by all accounts, and then to try and save 5-10 mill, Levy lowballed Villa and ended...

    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    No that's what you call an excuse. We sold Dembele and didn't replace. I believe both Vorm and Llorente are out of contract. There are three wide open spots as it is. Then Toby and Christian are probably out so you're up to five. If you would take less than the likely high numbers...

    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    There is really now no excuse for not going out and having a decent net spend. I believe it was something like 80-90 mill that Spurs made from this CL semi final run and now that CL is almost certainly guaranteed for next year, the money should be there, even with the stadium. Three straight...

    Player Watch Dele Alli - Player watch

    I think playing out of position deeper in midfield has hurt him as well - his best contributions to the team IMO are often his runs into the box and reading the game which often opens things up for others like Kane. I think he misses Kane more than anyone and since Herc says he has been...

    Would love to know the permanent option that Poch turned down. Seems pretty obvious that the temporary option was Tielemans as Leicester only got him on a loan with no buy option. I can't even remember players we were solidly linked to in the winter.

    It was JJ on twitter saying we are not currently working on any deals. Someone shared the info in this forum. It was in late April. Post 4937: "JJ on twitter today saying the club aren't actively working on deals (as you're not allowed to outside of the TW) but have picked out their targets...
