    Levy (to me) seems to have this 'master plan' of saying to clubs "I know you want that much for him but this is what Spurs are prepared to offer. We'll leave it on the table and get in touch if you change your mind". Then he sits in his office waiting for the phone to ring. I mean seriously folks look at this Traore pantomime. Conte wants him, the majority of fans think he'll do a good job in the new position the manager wants him to play in and yet here we are still saying 'will he or won't he ?' after weeks of negotiations. It's embarrassing when you compare us to the other clubs we are aiming to emulate and how they do such deals. There are no whispers and rumours about potential signings for days upon end, giving the rag mags clickbait stories to live off. You may read a hint that Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool have been 'considering' someone but then the next headline you see is that they have signed a new player and he's passed his medical.

    These few days left will have us scrambling around to get rid of and get in various players. Daniel is playing a dangerous game, he is waiting for definite incoming funds before making concrete bids for the ones Conte is demanding. One of two things will happen. It will either be an extremely eventful and exciting couple of days with the entrance and exit doors to the ground spinning like mad as transfers are completed OR Daniel will tell Antonio that he unfortunately could not clinch the outgoing deals he had planned to finance new buys and the matter will need to be reviewed again in the Summer. If it's the latter then I fully expect our Italian Wizard to perform his last magical act at Tottenham and make himself disappear.
     
    DL is walking a tightrope across a ravine with a crocodile infested river at the bottom. He cannot afford to slip up this time or the media and the fans (both opposition and Spurs) will make him the laughing stock of the footballing world. The clock is ticking and the crocs are licking their lips. Time to grow a pair Daniel.

    I should think that the bonus on offer for keeping Watford in the PL would be enough to drag anyone out of retirement  !

    Any chance someone could find out what the job pays before Roy puts pen to paper ? I'd consider it

    I too cannot understand why he took the job. For me it is a no win situation. There is always a chance that a struggling team picks up and avoids relegation, but I think he has taken a gamble with a big pay off if it doesn't work.

    Conte is not stupid he knows we're a project and miracles can't happen over a January transfer window but when Jan window end and the summer comes if we don't rebuild at least a third of the squad and start strengthening, we won't blame him for being twitchy. I'd like to know this so call supporters Trust signs to the Board this is your Last Chance Saloon Levy Enic and if you don't back Conte financially probably one of the best coaches in the world then we're all going to be banging on your door to get rid of you. As I just heard on Sky Sports in the background we all know this he said we haven't got the squad to compete against the likes of even Man United we're a championship side compared to the top four except for maybe sonny Kane Lorris and Romero where's our top players.
    Sure is their selling tickets for for the guns and Roses concert for £250 each and up I'm sure they'll have some money to spend on players.

    Very sad to hear the news of the deaths at the African nation Cup at the Cameroon game apparently the caf investigating. As we know all around the world Stadium has to look at the security and the protection of the fans trying to get into games after the gates are already closed. We saw this at Wembley and it should not be happening around the world they should have have enough staff/police emergency services on standby and training to manage this safely,  people's safety is paramount over football.

    Am I the only one is confused I thought Woy Hodgson retired at 75 why is he starting a new job then? He was doing a good job at Palace when he left very confusing. I do like the guy though love his upfront talking no-nonsense approach. Wish him all the best obviously unless they play us, feel a bit sorry for Ranieri he seems to get treated badly wherever he goes did he have enough time to do anything there.

    Brought in as a stop gap to try and avoid relegation but I doubt he can repeat the escape act he performed with Crystal Palace. He's actually 74 ( doesn't hit the 75 mark until August this year). He'll need plenty of good luck to get them out of their current downward spiral.

    We've been linked to striker Mohamed-Ali Cho
     ok maybe one for the future but he's not going to make the impact we need now is he know more than Scarlet would have?

    Dele and Ndombele are most likely leaving and Lo Celso might follow. This is great except we need more than 3 midfielders. Also all 3 are DMs. And so ofc we’re looking at Fiorentina DM Sofyan Amrabat as another DM and he looks ok very technical and a dribbler. Also Adama is about certainly coming

    I agree mate but I know of people who are regularly monitored and have check ups with no problems at all and then suddenly collapse with no prior warning. I doubt Eriksen showed any sign of a problem during all the time he was having regular fitness checks at the club and yet these things happen. All I am saying is if it was me I would thank God I was still around and go into coaching instead. That way my family wouldn't need to worry so much every time I went to work. I admire him but cannot help thinking with regard to his immediate family and friends it's a somewhat selfish decision. He may not be too concerned but I'm damn sure they are.

    I wish the guy every success and genuinely hope it works out for him, but it's not the choice I would have made.

    I know m8 I just think with Ndombele and Ali it’s about who is paying the wages if they only go on loan ,,,Tesco’s might be a str sale .
    with Tanganga he needs a loan away ,,,,I think Sanchez was unlucky yesterday cos he was played out of position on the left side of dier which he doesn’t play ,,,and that’s after we have been playing 3 centre backs ,,they go back to 2 centre backs weird

    Tanganga’s agent is on sky sports ,,,he says if players go from England to Europe or the other way round ,,it takes 72 hrs just to sort out visas,,so we need to pull out our fingers to get players sorted

    We all talk about getting players in, but as you point out, Craig, getting rid of the unwanted players is equally important.
    A bench player shouldn't be a decoration making up the numbers. They are there to play an important part of the game and to be an asset on the field when called upon. We are paying out a fortune in wages and getting almost nothing in return from too many players.

    As part of the traore deal Surley doherty's going to go back in the other direction we need to offload some Deadwood? Hopefully this is just the beginning of another 3 signings, striker playmaker and a centre-back
