Before the City and Ajax games in the Champions League most people wanted Llorente gone... He was pretty ineffective most of the season..
I get that. Believe me I watched every game........ I would still rather a free 6 month transfer with a fresh review of all options in the summer than waste 30 million + on a panic buy player who is equally not right.

He's hardly been on fire since he left.

View attachment 62002
If you look at the minutes played, it seems like he's scored in the two matches where he's played basically 90 mins, but hasn't in the ones where he's had a fraction of a match.

Averages out to:
- a goal every 163 ish minutes,
- or 0.55 goals per 90
- or, in other words, just over a goal every 2 full matches (180)

Which is generally a bit harsh as 4 lots of 20 mins subs are not the same as settling into a full match.

Not too far off his Spurs form really, though

As long as no-one has done a 'welcome back to Spurs' video for Bale.

We definitely need a striker... Jose has a good record in choosing strikers

50M euro sounds a lot for a 28 year old but over 5 years say with a payment plan and knowledge that Parrot is coming through Hmmm, bottom line is we need striker

Bottom line is we only need a striker if we can get him for under market value

Looks a decent option at under £20m, write ups on him suggest he could do a good job if motivated.

Little bit embarrassing as King of the low ballers strikes again. Sociedad only want £21m and we've offered £10m.

*Cringes*
Not sure he is worth much more than that, few bonus's ... Not sure I could get irate at Levy for for not paying a huge sum for a player that quite frankly 90% of Spurs fans up until the start of this week (I think) had ever heard of.

Willian José is putting pressure on Real Sociedad to let him join #thfc. The striker's agents are working hard to get the move done. |
@MundoDeportivo

José Mourinho has given #thfc the green light to sign Willian José and the Real Sociedad striker has already accepted their contract offer. |

Whether he is 1m, 50m or loan doesn't concern me, what concerns me is that he is good enough to play in the Premier league, fa cup and CL and help us achieve some sort of success be it top four, or a cup.

I'm all for good deals, but when we are where we are with no strikers, it is vital we bring in a quality forward, not just for the sake of it because he is fucking cheap...

What quality forward, willing to come and likely be benched for Kane, is available now?

I don't buy into all that bollocks, if you pay decent wages you can find a player, thats not my job
How have our rivals got understudies for their frontliine that hardly get dropped.

Inearcho, Origi, jesus, to name 3

Harry is our top striker and is WC, but we do him little favours by playing him every game, its not a coincidence he is injured every season, so any players coming in should play either when he needs a rest or the domestic cups, and why not bring in a strker who can also play in a system with Harry.

All this bullshit that who would come and be a bench warmer for harry is an excuse for our huge failings in getting a striker in because we dont go the extra mile.
