    The Transfer Wishlist Thread

    Cannot see Willian happening - even if there wasn’t extreme bad blood from his previous transfer, a Kia Joorabchian player on a free is going to cost twice as much as a normal transfer after agent fees, signing bonuses, and crazy wages.

    Who will Jose sell in the Summer ?

    Maybe, after Vorm’s display, but there is 0 reason he could not have started both games.

    Gazzaniga. If Jose wanted him as our no. 2 he would have started yesterday.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Norwich - Match Thread (FA Cup)

    Unfortunately Alli is at his best when he can play off Kane (and to a lesser extent Son), pop up in awkward spots for the defense and quickly play off one another before CBs can react. When he is the focal point of attack his ability to create those awkward situations for defenders is...

    Ha, that certainly improves our chances! Still wouldn't put money on us defeating eg Chelsea and City back to back in current form.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Norwich - Match Thread (FA Cup)

    Very pessimistic about our chances of winning the cup, Liverpool and City with nothing left to play for in the league will let them field really strong sides. Would be nice to see Parrott and Skipp get real minutes as I think both could make a strong case for more time in the league - Skipp...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I think he basically was given the choice between Bergwijn and a not-very-good striker and was OK with Berg. Had the Son injury already happened would have been a different story. I think he didn’t kick up an enormous fuss because he would have known when taking the job how much was/wasn’t...

    Fuck me, the Guardian can't even spell a player's name right in their headline. That's pathetic.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    I'm reserving judgment until I see how we play in the Chelsea game. I suspect that had an impact on everything tonight, from team selection to the intensity of play. For me, and I suspect for Jose as well, that is the more important fixture - we simply are not going to win the CL this season...

    Match Threads Spurs vs RB Leipzig 1st leg - Match Thread

    Best guess is just that one had to start today and one against Chelsea. If Davies is run out for his third game in six days on Saturday, then I'll be concerned.

    Match Threads Spurs vs RB Leipzig 1st leg - Match Thread

    Well the football has been frustrating, but lots of pretty good things to take away from that half. Defense looked more solid than usual, Sanchez popping up all over, and we kept Werner pretty quiet. Bergwijn still looks class and Gedson showing some bursts of real creativity. We look like we've...

    Leipzig playing a back 3 with only one centre-half... certainly will be an interesting match tactically!
