At the age of 53 I don't much care about is he an 8/10.
To me he is a BALLER and that was the reason I loved Tottenham when I was a kid.
Hoddle, Waddle, Gazza, Ginola and Bergvall. COYS.
No pressure for the lad!!!! 😂😂

There’s talk of us spending £50mil on Gray whereas I would rather we give the game time to Bergvall, who looks to have a far higher ceiling. Furthermore, he will be HG by the time he turns 21 and club trained.

Fingers crossed he can be involved in pre season and remains injury free!

They're different types of midfielder. Gray is a 6, this kid is more an 8.

He has the feel of a Tottenham player that I would love to see, that something different and that other teams would envy.
My hope is one day he will be on the list of plyers that I listed. I hope all of us will give him the time and space to develope.

New Brazil scout video on Bergvall...

What a smooth operator. (y)
If he can bring this to PL, we are in for a lot of fun....


Thanks, great vid! Can def see a lot of Madison in him, think he will start getting minutes as 10 and move back later on. He does look quite strong already but it’s the pace & intensity of the pl thst will take some getting used to. Europa will be perfect for blooding younger players next year.

I have been seeing his games of late when I can.
Of late, Bergvall been deployed as no6 - have to say he looks good in it. Sweden league hasnt got much quality but pace of the game looks similar with lot of teams pressing. Ofcourse not to the quality of PL. Players do try to knock him of balance. Overall he rides those well.

I felt he tries a bit too much at times, which means he loses possession. He cannot do that in PL.

IMO, he can play anywhere in midfield but I dont see him making instant impact. He will need more time to adapt

Looks like a real talent and with a bit of strength and aggression. Need to see how he adapts to a much higher standard day in day out, that league he’s playing in is not particularly strong.

Normally I'd be suggesting we take it slow and focus on his development over the next couple of years.

But this guy is different gravy. Just start him, make sure he has a solid 6 behind him and just let him do his thing. I can only remember one other occasion watching a scouting video and thinking this guy is going to be one of the world's best (Kvartsheila).

There are no question marks from what I can see, and I don't see any weaknesses to his game. This guy is ready now. Class

I get you but he's young and the league he's playing in is absolute :poop:

I think he'll get plenty of game time though

Good thing about being in the Europa League is we'll be playing 2 or 3 teams around the level he's used to in Sweden, and another 5 which will be a step up from what he's used to, with the added bonus that he'll be surrounded by better players to help him adapt. He's not going to be able to come straight in and play in a North London Derby but the 8 Europa League "league phase" matches are the games we shouldn't be hesitating about just chucking him in and seeing how he gets on.

The above plus a handful of Cup starts and the odd League sub appearance and it should make his transition nice and smooth. Really excited to see him in our colours.

Spent the last week or so taking a long look at him. It’s been said, but he really does remind me of Frenkie De Jong. The way he carries the ball is so smooth, intelligent first touches and feints to create space. Super secure with the ball. A super athlete with real pace to carry the ball through the center of the park. Ball striking is top. Mostly crisp ground passes to circulate the play when deeper, but willing and able to switch the play when needed. Not super physical or touch tight when defending, but he’s tall and rangy which helps him intercept the ball. Has a sturdy build, so he should be able to handle the physical aspects of the league quite well. Would like to see a little more adventurous passing.

I hope we make his transition as smooth as possible, because I think he’s a super talent. I think we should become more of a team who controls the ball in the opposition half with forward players signed who are hopefully more adept at final third ball security. In which case, I could see him in the quarterback no 6 role where he can dictate the play with switches, drive forward with the ball to commit defenders, and shoot from distance. But honestly can see him in any of the three midfield roles; it’s up to Ange to develop him where he wants.

At the very least you have to put a question mark over the level of his opposition. He's doing great, no question but the Prem will be a hell of a step up.

The mikey moore intreview, where he said the pace of the game was insane.

he needs time, as do all of our young players.

also the pressure will be insane, media scrutiny etc

in sport a lot of people look great, if you get in there faces and don’t give them time they don’t look so good.

be interesting to see how he adapts, I forget the club, they where brain scanning all there youth players and believed they could work out which ones could have the mental capacity to play elite level.

at youth players could look amazing, but when they went to highest level it was to much for there brain to handle the speed of thought with so much happen.

i think he will be good but there are so many factors, he has to settle in a foreign country, that’s pretty big, not to mention female attention, bad influences.

Lots of players jump up a level and it’s to much.

lets give him plenty of support and time.

Lucas about to play his last game for Djurgarden (Stockholms derby) before moving to the mighty Tottenham Hotspur.

He might have some international commitments coming up, but good for him to get a bit of a break before pre-season starts.



EDIT: Bergvall's last game in Sweden ends in disappointment with a 0-3 loss.

Shame he couldn’t sign off with a win. At least he didn’t get injured.
