The reason Rabiot is not a defo, or starter. Can’t find the right words to express. His mum and advisors are ridiculously difficult to deal with. From what I hear Rabiot himself is not the issue, but his outside advisors influence on him. We have spoken to him personally, along with his lot. Hence why I said i can’t see it. Timo is too expensive for us. But sadly, words we are fed up of hearing; we did try 😢

Let’s see the next few days. I hope I have put things into perspective.

All the decent players are expensive for us. We can't sign them. We can't sign the likes of dele now as the player from lower leagues also costs above 20 mil. which is more than our ceiling.

Sounds like Rabiot needs to take control of his affairs and make his own decisions.

Im not sure how Timo is too expensive for us considering we keep hearing we have 100mill+ to spend. We dont want to spend 70% of our budget on one player but in reality we are not spending any of our budget on anyone! So that excuse is out of the window.

I'm guessing Levy thinks he can get him cheaper in the summer but bigger clubs will come and get him and we will hear that we tried.

Thanks for trying but how about Levy/Poch/the club start delivering. Either operate as a Top 4 club or give up pretending to be one. Im sick of this crap now.

The 100 mil in the new 150 mil :sneaky:

Are they difficult because they want something called money ? Not shooting the messenger but done with our owners.

None of that comes as any surprise and it's understandable that we are trying to attract the calibre of player that will likely knock us back. No harm in asking as long as we aren't wasting time.

What I do have a problem with is our inability to recruit at least one CM when we've known about that area for YEARS.

There are players out there. To say there isn't is foolish. Poch's mini list of Pele and Maradona or Tightwad bald ****?

I really couldn't give a flying fuck.

i'd rather spend all our budget on one good player than get 4 or 5 fillers. That's what's got us into this mess to begin with.

Better spending all the budget if it'll improve us rather than do nothing and have the whole season derailed by injuries. It's beyond frustrating, especially when our depth outside of the core eleven is nowhere near the required standard to challenge.

Thanks, Herc.

Can’t help but feel deflated. We can’t sign players to improve us because we lack the funds. I’m guessing we can’t spend big until we sell and that probably won’t happen until the summer

No point trying. I rather we just go for players that we can afford. Not fucking wasting our time chasing someone we obviously won’t get.

Let's not pretend that other people's agents aren't FAR worse than Rabiot's mum.

There are some absolute sharks out there and, I'd imagine, at least she has his best interests at heart.

Still, needs to join Tottenham and then chill out!
