    My heart says forego the money and to keep it as Tottenham Hotspur Stadium or return to White Hart Lane. Sadly, we are likely to be saddle with a product name. The worst part of reaching old age is watching all the tradition being slowly discarded. I sometimes think that the Spurs of today is totally different from the Spurs of the 50s and 60s. COYS

    It depends on which games we base our judgement on. We are only 7 games in and the performances have been erratic to say the least. If we stay injury free with our important players, I would have thought this squad is as good as all the other better squads outside of the top 4. If we can show some consistency, we are still in the mix for 5th or 6th and even my head believes it is there to reach. For me, it rests on beating the 3 or 4 rivals we are competing against - beat them and that top 6 position is there for the taking. I will maintain the hope we can do it unless and until it becomes obvious we have blown it Onwards and upwards. Over the next few months ignore any negative posts I may put up - by and large I am a very positive person, but I have my days when I get out of the bed on the wrong side and can be be a miserable old fart. Wait until you get past 80 and you will understand what I mean. COYS

    I'd be more excited about the 25 million per year if it were going to be invested in players or a manager, instead of going to sit on the balance sheet to make the financials look better... Sorry for the pessimism

    You are absolutely right about Spurs being a totally different entity than is was 60 years ago, but that goes for nearly all clubs in the top 2 or 3 divisions. It's a money game now - look at the Manure squad and see what they spend on players and salaries - the same goes for Citeh, the bin-dippers and the Ruskies. To compete with them, we have to be like them. The new stadium, the NFL, concerts and the naming rights are all income generators. The money has to come from somewhere and these will all be good, long-term revenue streams. When I do my financial planning for my business it is always good that, at the start of the year, I can look at guaranteed income and know that X% of my overheads for the year are already covered.

    Son could easily end up with more Spurs career goals than Kane. I don't see Kane staying (not sure I want him to) but Sonny could finish his career with us.

    The Son Heung-min Thread

    Couldn't have a thread about Harry Kane and not Son This article shows just how much travelling our Korean superstar has been doing the last three years. https://www.donga.com/en/List/article/all/20211007/2968081/1 Here's some more informative stats on the guy : https://www.premierleague.com/players/4999/Son-Heung-Min/stats Valued in here at £76.5m but I'm damn sure Levy would want a lot more for him https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/heung-min-son/profil/spieler/91845

    He is going to be a good signing for us, but I was a bit surprised that he is not super quick. Hopefully his skill will compensate for a lack of flat out speed.

    I can spell Kane and I can say it - that's the only reason I would keep him !!!

    I can live without LoCelso and Sanchez for a game, but we should already be building our back 4 into a solid unit with Romero and Royal as starters

    If Dele had Winks' attitude and Winks had Dele's inherent skills, I'd keep them both ...... but they don't, so get rid

    The Bryan Gil Thread

    Watched him last night against Italy and he has such a hunger for the ball. Always looking for a space and then demanding a pass. Such a refreshing change from the "Don't give the thing to me, I don't want it" attitude of some of our other players. I just hope he gets a full 90 minutes against Newcastle and a true chance to show what he is capable of. People say he's too young and inexperienced and yet this 20 year old may well return to Tottenham next week with an International Trophy to his name, something not many can lay claim to, especially at Spurs. Gil came on with 18 minutes remaining and got involved right away, bringing down a long ball with a neat pass to a teammate. He also came close to scoring a few minutes later when the ball fell to him, but the opposition defence blocked his effort.He was constantly looking to make clever runs, mostly operating in the half-spaces around the box, but generally being involved across the entire forward line. He weighed in with two shots and two crosses, took 23 touches of the ball, and made 15 passes with an 86.7 percent accuracy. Overall Bryan looks extremely comfortable in a Spain side brimming with exciting attacking talent.

    A typical sign of the times. I would like to see hanging brought back, prisons changed back from single room hotels with TVs, mobiles and a social life with pool and an other games to 4 to a cell and slopping out. Even be like Singapore and have birching. That country has the laws to use Draconion punishments but they are very rarely needed. It is one of the happiest countries in the world. Without Draconian punishments and the devil's tool to encourage selfishness and anarchy, this harsh environment we currently live will only get worse. That's just the views of a sad old fart who felt very safe in the 40s and 50s, but today I can feel uncomfortable if I see a group of teenagers walking towards me. COYS

    With not getting game time at Spurs, it is not surprising not being given a start for his country. This guy was possibly the best buy we made if he was given the opportunity to to realise his potential. It wouldn't surprise me if he was starting to get pissed off. I hope I am wrong, but he is young and could easily react badly to the way Nuno appears to be ignoring his development. I would hate to see him go the way of the likes of Dele and Winks as an example. COYS

    The Son Heung-min Thread

    It's a sad reflection of the times when a player from South Korea is the the one who is showing the most love and loyalty to the Club. He signed an extension despite the fortunes of the club looking bleak rather than deserting what appeared to be a sinking ship. Such a shame that Harry, who once claimed his heart and soul belonged to Tottenham Hotspur, then changed to putting trophies ahead of his love for the club. This is not a criticism, as he is perfectly entitled to follow his dream as 99% of footballers do. COYS

    Like Dele, for me he is an enigma. When he broke into the squad, I think most, if not all of us, thought he was going to mature into a top player having a long career with Spurs - some on here even had him book marked as a future captain. I feel he was possibly a bit unlucky that he had to play in too many games during Poch's last few months and Mourinho's unsuccessful tenure. He was young and inexperienced and it would have taken a lot of mental strength playing in all those must win games. It seems to me he has ambition and he has confidence in himself, but needs to be playing regularly to progress. I think he would like to have his career at Spurs and he is taking steps to prove he is capable of doing it. I think for both player and club it is a sensible move to loan him out and to keep our options open. COYS

    As well as Leicester, West Ham and Everton all thinking they can make top 6, there is Brighton and Brentford punching above their weight at the moment. If we get results against them, we will have had a bloody good season and be well on the road to reach our goal of returning to be a top 4 club. COYS

    Agreed But such a shame that on those teams forums only 3 seasons ago we would have been in that list that needed to trip up and now we are aiming for 'success' in the third tier of European football

    He's so great to watch. Boundless energy, boundless enthusiasm. All the skill one could ask for. Plays the game like a schoolboy. For me, after this summer I kind of consider Son the face of the club now. Kane is malcontented, wants away, showed up late for training, etc. Sonny is the one.

    The Times are reporting that Winks wants out in January and has asked club to arrange a loan deal : https://tbrfootball.com/tottenham-fans-react-as-harry-winks-eyes-loan-exit/ Best for both parties I think, he's not going to get regular football under Nuno.

    Dusan Vlahovic I would say "Bye Bye" to Harry come January and get this lad in. He's valued at over £50m ....that's fine. Bid £60m and keep the Kane change for someone else https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12426454/dusan-vlahovic-tottenham-and-atletico-madrid-target-refuses-to-sign-new-fiorentina-contract https://tbrfootball.com/tottenham-fans-react-as-fiorentina-president-says-dusan-vlahovic-will-not-sign-a-new-contract-with-la-viola/

    Come on PSG come on Poch

    Typical French defensive wall, full of holes. Just like the Maginot Line during the war, about as effective as a chocolate fireguard.
