    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    I think we've changed a bit since Walker left to accommodate a slightly different style but i completely agree with this. It's not about pure speed in terms of charging head first into a player, it's having speed in the team in those areas for very quick transitions of play, either on the...

    Mike Dean

    I doubt we'll see anything different mate - the FA will stand by Mike Dean so long as the evidence doesn't become public knowledge. If the press had evidence to the contrary which made Mike Dean 100% look like a liar and a tit - i'm sure they'd have pushed it by now. Could be wrong but i think...

    Real Madrid thread

    It's scapegoating ultimately - bad run for RM, knocked out of the CL, sacked manager. The fans and players look for someone to blame. Whilst players should be above this, they're a prime example of player cliques/power driving changes at club level. For what it's worth, Bale probably doesn't...

    Mike Dean

    I'm not sure it will win us any decisions but this is exactly what i thought - would love him to get a bit of stick. I strongly believe refs need room to make mistakes in games and not be completely ripped apart for it however his personality is the antithesis of what a ref should stand for in...

    Lack of mental strength or ability?

    I think you're about right here. Poch gets that bit extra out of a few of the less brilliant players we have but he can't do it forever. Some players will go a bit downhill as well over time which MP can't fix. Too many factors need to be right for us to be 100% fit and firing 90% of the time...

    Lack of mental strength or ability?

    I think you've hit the nail on the head here.

    Lack of mental strength or ability?

    Agreed with this and that both aspects are a bit of an issue. I think we do lack that killer mentality to a degree, a few players in particular are still a way off this level but i think we need more options off the bench to change a game and create real competition in the squad, that for me...

    Very interesting if accurate. Not sure on our interest and may (depending on business generally) require an out to bring him in but would surely represent great business given his age and ability for anyone.

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Chelsea thread

    Agreed - for me there is an issue here with the philosophy which the squad isn't capable of delivering at present and will take more time and more players i think. He's made a few signings who you'd presume were key to what he wants to do - Jorginho in particular who looks to be struggling...

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 18/19

    I agree with your point and i think you back up my point to a degree in this response. Yes the league cup 'was only the league cup' but the reason that wasn't a tipping point to bigger things for us was that IMO we didn't have the team belief, squad or a manager like Poch to give us that...

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 18/19

    Well put. I know there's many fans who over the years have seen some humiliating stuff at Spurs - maybe, just maybe, the new stadium will galvanise some confidence in those with that negativity in the backs of their minds. At some point though, as cringe-worthy and perhaps alien as it may...

    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    I wouldn't bet against that prediction - how many absolute 'must have' signings have we steered away from, where the clamour around Spurs was massive and it turned out to be the right call that we didn't actually overpay/sign them? I'm sure there's a few, particularly strikers in recent years...

    I agreed! Thought we were better with mobility and quick breaks. Good job I’m not a manager!
