    Desire Doue

    No idea, probably carrying an injury. Their best player by a distance from what I watched. As I say just a hunch as he seems to have all the attributes to play LCB in our system. 6'3, powerful, mobile, aggressive, good tackler in his timing and recovery tackles at speed with those long legs...

    Desire Doue

    I went and watched some Stoke games last month out of curiosity. Good player. Sweet left foot. Clearly a PL player. Strong mentality. Keeps going when they're loosing. Fans love him. Just a hunch but believe he could cover LCB as well as DM, so from that perspective makes sense for squad...

    Player Watch: Richarlison

    But what did we learn from the beginning of the season? That Son is a great striker when facing the goal. With a functioning midfield, FBs and Wingers, Son is very dangerous at CF. Obviously Son is not great back to goal. The first half of the season that wasn't an issue as the team was...

    Player Watch: Richarlison

    The counter argument is buy cheap, buy twice. Not always but there's a reason strikers are the hardest to get and keep at all levels of the game. There is no point missing out on a top class striker if the alternative forces you back in the market next year with more dead wood to shift. It...

    Player Watch: Rodrigo Bentancur

    He’s got 2 years left on his contract. We have to renew or sell him surely. Sentiment aside, letting it go to Jan without renewal puts us in a weak position to protect his value. I think we have to make a judgement call on his fitness, and any fall out from the Son issue this window. Ange...

    Player Watch - Djed Spence - Genoa

    The reputation around his attitude in the past seems well earned. It's based on the actions of Conte and Ange sending him out on loan, and the words and actions of Farke in terminating that loan. As well as Warnock. That's four managers who have had issues with him. Rennes didn't take him as...

    Jacob Ramsey

    I"ve not seen anyone saying Bentancur SHOULD be sold. Some including myself have suggested he MAY or WILL be sold. Going by the persistent Gallagher / Ramsey links.

    Jacob Ramsey

    Hopefully not going from Eze > Olmo > Doue > Baena > Sudakov > Szymanski > Gibbs-White > Ramsey. We'll have to see what happens but it does feel kind of meh. I"m wavering on this one as I really don't want to take minutes away from Bergvall in the 8/10 role. Even after selling one of...

    Jacob Ramsey

    I think that's likely the case if he arrives. That someone unexpected will go. Bentancur, Bissouma or Kulu. I think if you look at Bentancur and Bissouma. They are both 27. As good as they are or can be, neither looks like a nailed on profile fit or automatic starter, and Lolo has 2 years on...

    I don't doubt that Herc, just that the story breaking on Twitter as "Just In" is fake. It's based on old info that's bounced around foreign journalists and aggregators from 3 weeks ago.

    Jacob Ramsey

    Fake news. Original aggregator has taken a quote out of context. Source is an article referencing the rejected bid 3 weeks ago.

    General/Non-Spurs Transfers

    People do watch overseas leagues more than they used to. But the main reason is data and all the platforms like Wyscout. You identify spikes in performance and then zone in by watching every attacking and defensive action of players. Over 90 minutes or a season. My subscription has lapsed...

    Viktor Gyökeres

    He's one of the best no.9 type strikers in Europe and on the wanted list of most top clubs including Arsenal, Chelsea, and anyone who could entertain his £84m release clause. Some talk in recent days that Sporting might negotiate. Fair to say we'd have a challenge on our hands to get him, but...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Mikey Moore

    Briefly. Moore has pretty much skipped the U21s going straight from U18 to training with the first team. Season before last they briefly played together when Moore was still at school in the U18s. Lankshear has a telepathic understanding with Donley though in terms of movement and understanding.

    Everyone in Europe has been after him since he was 15. He could have left long ago if money was the focus. Like Donley his family are Spurs fans. I believe his scholarship contained an automatic professional contract starting on his 17th birthday. Not unusual as we've given this to others...

    A lot of hypothetical fury in this thread.

    Before we know the facts I think it’s important to remember that we all need to react with our hot takes as quickly as possible. Any sitting on the fence or reluctance to guess the composite structure of a bottle from 3000 miles away may negatively affect your virtue and masculinity.
