    Van Der Vaart

    Like Sig, is a slightly over valued player by casual observers of the game. His goal output is good, but he is not incisive with his passing, he isn't dynamic or a particularly intelligent player. He rarely takes the game by the scruff of the neck. The only comparable aspect is that they both...

    He's ok, but not then ideal answer. He is not a natural DM and plays for one of the defensively worst teams in the league. Interception stats don't always that offers defensive solidity. Even so, he is an intelligent player with a good engine, and might be able to develop and improve in a better...

    Spurs Youth - 2019/20

    The article is still completely wrong. Kane, Winks, Townsend, Bentaleb and Daniels (though maybe not playing regularly), Adam Smith and Ryan Fredericks in the PL alone. We also have Veljkovic in the Bundesliga, yuri berchiche in Spain and Troost-Ekong in italy and by many definitions Danny...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - Groundhog Day you say? Groundhog Day you say?

    Okay. If Jose wants him, and we are going to fully back Jose I'm happy for us to go for it. But there seems to be a misunderstanding of what a DoF is. A DoF's job is not really to find hidden gems (it's debatable whether this is really possible to do nowdays anyway), and if that's a problem for...

    Sporting Director

    Baldini is a national joke in Italy. Did alright the first time round in Roma, though essentially gave Roma a transfer ban by using underhand tactics in signing players. He did have a good relationship with Cappello and the board and they shared a vision. However, he was considered ineffective...

    Maybe but the moaning and negativity really put me ofs this thread

    Spurs Youth - 2019/20

    And part of the problem is that this has become, at times, a 'wine about youth policy thread' which has become harder to enjoy and learn from.

    Willian hints at Tottenham transfer to reunite with Jose Mourinho

    I'd be happy with it. A bit of experience and in rotation.

    New Nike Kits 20-21

    I´m not against the design. But no florescent yellow. That bright yellow is not a Tottenham colour and never has been but since Puma. People keep experimenting with it. No!

    Man City Banned From UCL For 2 years

    Milan and Galatasary both got a one year ban from Europe for failing to meet ffp, and that wasn't with the lying. So I don't see why they should be reinstated. Mind Milan were in serious trouble at the time. I think it is important to understand what FFP is for. It is not to prevent financial...

    The VAR Thread

    I've mentioned before, but when your at a stadium you will know if the goal stands within a few seconds, or normally at the same time as it is disallowed.Offside, super easy. The flag will be up. A foul, again you will see the ref clearly not give the goal. It really isn't comparable. On tv...

    Yeh I largely agree with what you said. But I think Lo Celso is also very very physical like, I'm not sure I would create the distinctions in the way you do is all.

    Not sure about that. He has made a lot of mistakes but almost always plays in the same way regardless. I think he is still feeling himself into the team and it's natural that he isn't quite as confident. He hasn't played football in a long time. I also felt that in the second half it seemed like...

    Match Threads Aston Villa vs Spurs - Match Thread

    This is a misunderstanding of Sissoko's role. He is the more attacking player out of Winks and him. His role is to roam around fill in gaps and to bring the ball out from deep. He is not a defensive midfielder. Winks is normally played as a defensive midfielder. But he is not always that...

    tbf In my experience lurking on villa forums they always have. Yes they can rate themselves a bit better than they are but generally they don't get too hyperbolic post games.

    Player Watch: Gedson Fernandes

    I hope your right, but am I missing something? I just don't see him as a similar kind of player. What I see is a player with good movement who can break from deep but isn't particularly blessed with great technique. But there you go. I think some people are going overboard with him, has had...

    Race for The Top 4

    tbf, I actually get that and I'm not confused by the <1%. This isn't a basic predictor but a complex algorithm based on many variables. So I think the less than x percent is fine. I do, however, believe that the model is flawed for two reasons. Firstly, it fails to take into account the flow of...

    Race for The Top 4

    How big do you think the deduction will be. If you look at other leagues I would be surprised if its more than 10 points. Depends though.

    Race for The Top 4

    The site takes into account many things, including the teams they are playing next, exG, defence vs attack simulations on all teams etc, not just form. Personally I am very skeptical on there model but.

    What Our Opponents' Fans Are Saying About Us 19/20

    Yep they ran out of money and sold the core of their team without replacements. Namely, Milner, Barry, Young and Downing. They were spending around 90% of their income on wages with big debts over 100 million. Selling was inevitable.
