This is the best thread. Hope and optimism before realism snd despair hit us in august
What happened to the one I started?This thread is for you to express all your Spurs related Transfer dreams and recommend young players you've seen that you think we should be keeping an eye on.
This thread isn't for discussing ITK.
As usual, the thread will run until the next Transfer Forums open after which we'll move all Transfer stuff over there like we always do.
Meanwhile the ITK and Transfer Forums are closed until the summer, which means nobody can see them, so don't panic.
It is a wish list after allNeves is way out of our price range. Even Pep said he was too expensive for City.
I don’t know if I’ve just made this up but I swear Barrios just moved to a Russian team. Imagine that will make his price more unrealistic and a challenge to sign.Just came on to post my musings in the now-defunct transfer wishlist thread, so I'll kick this off. No pressure.
My major concern now that we've gone two full windows without making a signing is that all the signs suggest we're heading for wholesale change once again this summer, perhaps even more drastically than we did in 2013.
(People forget that, as well as Bale, we also lost Defoe, Caulker, Parker, Dempsey and Huddlestone that year).
As we know, our 7 new signings in that window took a while to gel, with arguably only two - Eriksen and Lamela - ever really coming good for us.
I can realistically see the following players departing this summer: Lloris, Trippier, Aurier, Alderweireld, Wanyama, Llorente, Vorm, Janssen, Nkoudou, Eriksen, and one of Lamela or Lucas.
In any case, I can see us needing to make a minimum of 6 signings this summer, which fills me with dread. I really think we're going to regret rolling our transfer windows over, twice, and doing all of our business at once.
The players I'd most like us to bring in are:
LB - Sessegnon
RB - Aarons
CM - Berge, Brooks, Barrios, Neves (any 2)
FW - Bowen, Werner
I would have liked De Ligt and Dolberg from Ajax too, but I think we've missed the boat on those by not getting them last summer. They'll be well out of our price range by now.
No, sorry. My post was meant for @freeeki.Who me? Never been particularly bothered by him. If Poch wants him I will support his decision but making my own picks Grealish isn’t, and never has been, top of my list.
