It was a pretty mental last two pages from JJ tbf.
The thing is we get deals close but the agents most probably let other interested clubs know what’s happening, and the last minute the bigger clubs blow us out the water. People need to understand other clubs such as Chelsea (Hazard, Willian, Batshuayi, and not Pullusic), Liverpool (Mane, and Wjaldum) are bigger clubs then us, that can pay more, and have a bigger recent or past history.

This summer we won’t have that problem with Chelsea, and most probably why they trumpt us on Pullusic

Pretty sure I know the most likely answer.

We don’t do “Dele’s“ anymore. Poch didn’t even know who Bowen was when asked about him. Based on the Moura and Aurier purchases I just can’t see us buying to improve at all.
What a silly thing to say! The fact they haven't set the world alight yet means we lacked ambition signing them?!

They are exactly the sorts of purchases we should be making - taking the surplus stars from super-rich clubs in the hope of them re-igniting the form they showed to earn the move in the first place...

You know what they say about men with big feet...









It leads to a fucking boring overused phrase, which is nearly as infuriating as being told someone's "sweet enough" when you offer them sugar.

Or is it the other way round :unsure:

Er, yeah so I was talking about us not buying young English players like Dele or Jarrod Bowen anymore, so...

Or it's been said that a big nose represents a big Spurs' logo; and a big mouth for a lady, like Julie Roberts means a big pussy.

Is he in your long term plan?
He’s in our plans, of course and then, here in Tottenham the circumstances about what you want, your agent, your dad, your family, your club, your manager, your chairman. It is about many things together in the same place take the best decision for everyone. But it’s not only a decision from one side, it is not always. There are a lot of components that make the best decision for the club and in this case the player.


Interesting he specifically mentioned his dad. At least to me anyway.

Let's be honest, Toby's off in the Summer.

He's going to get a huge signing on bonus. Last big contract of his career.

Will be a sad day.

I wouldn't be grudge him that last big contract. He's been a absolute professional throughout this situation. We've been" fed" the club's side of the story on the contract issue and may never know the truth.

My only hope is that he does not end up at a rival. It pains seeing Kyle Walker play at City and it would be the same with Toby.

I agree he's off but he's still gonna cost someone £25m, and at his age there won't be much resale value, so I wouldn't imagine his signing on bonus will be as much as you think.
