I am quite close to very high level details at the club (hence another reason i'm getting out of ITK!) so i was told the GB deal being worked on quite a while ago unfortunately. Remember i dropped that shit sandwich in here!
I'm wondering what the top people at Spurs are thinking about Real Madrid possibly selling Benzema and Di Maria to the Arse in order to finance the Bale deal... Losing our star player and strengthening our direct rival in order to do so doesn't seem brilliant, or are those projected moves merely further media bullshit? :cautious:

This window is crazy... lamela looking quite likely now.. It's fantasy stuff. So, in keeping with that.....

I expect Willian, Lamela, Chiriches, Dier, Nedelev, Rebic, Rodrigo and Concentrao to be wrapped up by end of window.

media BS. Guillem Balague was suprised at this Benzema talk and laughed it off speaking to talksport few hours back. There is no way Benzema is going to Arsenal, given he is their only Striker. While there is a possibility of Madrid going for Suarez, but it is far fetched.

Infact RM is trying to renew the deal for him. May be its his agents trying to get a good deal by leaking stories. Di Maria could be possible but again I am not sure such am move would happen.

Someone else would just offer more for Di Maria and they'll lose out again. Even if they're interested, you know they won't offer a suitable amount.

Hello everyone,

Just joined up today after lurking around for a while. I'll pop in from time to time with my thoughts and look forward to discussing Spurs with all of you. I'm an American and recently started following club football last season after watching the USMNT for a while. Dempsey made me a spurs fan but I quickly learned that he was not great for us(made me extremely frustrated at times) albeit providing some key goals(woke up my entire house at college last season after I went bonkers over his winner against United). Was great that we sold him(although I pray for USMNT sake that he comes back on loan, if needed, during the winter since its a WC year). Bale became my favorite player, but he is likely off. Doesnt matter. I am a spurs supporter, not a player supporter.

I love hearing the ITK about Willian being likely. He creates chances and I hope he can provide the service to Soldado or Lamela who also seems likely if Bale is off. I would love to buy that spending on Willian and Lamela isnt dependent on Bale being off, but I have my questions about that. Even though I am a new supporter, I do know that this is Daniel Levy we are talking about. Very good chairman that can frustrate all of us at times due to his hard stance, but he has gotten the club on solid ground. I do love the fact that we are spending on quality players, though and are showing ambition to not just make top 4 but to win trophies all while the scum are yet to break out any of that "big money" they supposedly had.

Or, depending on the mood, showered with neg reps and banned from the transfer forum for life for going off topic.

I'll probably post something a bit different. Not one for double posts. Yeah I know that people in London are fast asleep right now. I decided earlier today to join up here and would have done so if I could have. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to be on my computer until now...

It might be an idea to do it in a thread in spurs chat.

So tweets from lamelas brother hinting/playing that he is coming to spurs. Get it done, sell bale get coentrao, sell ade and benny get a striker.

Then we can concentrate on winning the league.

I'll probably just ease in to the discussions without making a proper entrance. I'm not keen on making any big entrance. More of a guy to go with the flow. Ratings don't matter much to me, although they do feel nice to get, lol.

I find myself dreaming of keeping Bale and signing Coentrao, Willian and Lamela while selling BAE and Ade. Would much rather that than the whole selling Bale thing. Plus, I think that would have us in far better shape as far as wining the title goes. Then I wake up.

I would love to get a young striker and another centerback on before the window closes, but before we get to that, we should focus on Lamela, Willian and an LB, if not Coentrao.

Can't wait for all the new guys to gel... With all this technical ability, I am sure we will be playing at a higher tempo, lots of 1 touch passing and movement... I really don't want to see so much passing around the centre circle again.

Yankspurs only joined today. It will take him at least a week to gel properly. But totally agree with your post.

I think what boric was meaning Jj is that if they drop their offer really low now after our spending are we screwed, ie would we take the low offer or would we still sit tight in your opinion. Not an ITK q and a I know, but I'm more asking for your opinion.
We will not be screwed bec all those players we purchase are top players they will retain value.

In fact I got a feeling we will get Lamela regardless of Bale and move Ade, Lennon or Townsend.

Agree. And with Willian and Lamela (hopefully), we've also got players who can go past players and expose a defence - also, Dembele, if there's room for him in that midfield line-up! Didn't think I'd be saying that a few weeks back!

Lamela can play up front aswell? Would that not ease the pressure of buying another striker?
