Morning all​
Seeing as yesterday's thread hit 50 pages here's a fresh one for you to soil. Yesterday's Soldado speculation was rampant and it seems an announcement is imminent. Having said that, it's not over until the fat lady sings and the fat lady has a sore throat where Spurs are concerned.​
There was also speculation over Bale yesterday, as far as I can tell it was sparked by someone on COYS posting a smiley. No really.​

you would think looking at the DM this morning that Bale is having a nervous breakdown.

anyway back to reality, hopefully Soldado can be wrapped up today :cool:

Tension is too right, more of it in the room than the time A&C casually asked Bill Oddie, "Hey Bill, you ever heard of something called ice docking?"

Journo said he doesn't expect spending to stop after Soldado and several ITKs talked about a big spend. I'm very interested to see who we get next.

I couldn't embed the link for some odd reason. Anyway this is what it said :

By Ben Hayward

Valencia coach Miroslav Djukic admits he is in the dark over Roberto Soldado's possible move to Tottenham but says he will wish the Spain striker "all the luck in the world" if he chooses to swap Mestalla for White Hart Lane this summer.

Goal understands Spurs are confident of sealing a deal for the striker in a £24 million deal as the Spaniard pushes for a move to White Hart Lane.

Djukic saw his side lose 2-1 to AC Milan in the ICC Cup opener in Valencia on Saturday without Soldado, who only returned from his holiday earlier in the day after his Confederations Cup exertions, but appears resigned to losing his striker.

"I haven't spoken to the club," Djukic told the media after watching his side edged out by Milan. "Whatever happens [will happen]...

"I spoke to Roberto this morning. He is a very good professional and if he decides to leave we will wish him a lot of luck and if he chooses to stay with us then we will be delighted because he is a great professional and he can help us a lot. But if his exit to Tottenham is confirmed then we will wish him all the luck in the world."

Djukic, who joined the club from Valladolid earlier this summer, believes Valencia can be competitive next season - with or without Soldado.

"We will keep working," he added. "We are Valencia [and] without Djukic, without Soldado, this is [still] a big club. If he decides to leave then we will bring in someone else. It will be a big loss but we will bring in another player and keep moving forward."

Midfielder Dani Parejo, who scored the second-half goal which gave Valencia hope of a fightback, also claims the club can cope without the star striker.

"We have other team-mates who are good players, like Paco [Alcacer]," he explained. "But Roberto every season scores 22 or 23 goals and that guarantees you are high up in the table. If he goes then others will come in. He is a great footballer but we have other good players as well."

Valencia has been linked with former Tottenham striker and Portuguese international Helder Postiga as a possible replacement for Soldado.

"He is an experienced striker who knows La Liga, has scored goals and is an international player - any club would be interested in him," Djukic said.

I just googled that to see what it was. :eek:

Thanks. Thanks a lot.

If we complete the signing of Soldado, this team will push for the title. The only thing that could derail is the sale of Bale. I don't care how much money Real Madrid pony up, Bale is completely irreplaceable for us. The supporters need to stand united and let Levy know that we'd back his decision to hold onto Bale, even if it means making less money next summer on his transfer.

The opportunity to put together a complete squad that can seriously challenge the top of the league is something that needs to be seized. Short of Real offering Di Maria, Coentrao and 100 million pounds, we shouldn't even begin to consider selling Gareth.

If Ade leaves and we get a patchwork quilt jobbie( Lopez, Gomis, Remy) We won't challenge, Bale won't be going anywhere.

Oh what have I done. I just looked it up, and boy I didn't need that visual, at all. :poop: :LOL:
I'm sorry, with the likes of A&C and Bomber present, I thought that SC had been exposed to every sort of sexual perversion possible already!

Soldado played 47 games last season for Valencia. I don't want to see Ade go either, but if RS stays healthy our backup striker may not play a very important role this season.

Never been worried about Bale leaving but when walking out my hotel lobby this morning I caught on the news something about 95m Coentrao and di Maria. It was subtitles so not sure if I was seeing it right, but an interesting offer if true.

Still would prefer him to just stay, but di Maria and Coentrao are both awesome players AND 95m. You never know his value may never peak quite as high as it is right now.

Still. Don't want him to go.

You can't count on this though. Anyone could go down in an innocuous style like Sandro last season. We need someone who can come in and play the system, ie, not Defoe.
