    CRD got a reaction from Tonto911 in Rumours regarding Toby Alderweirald   
    So, as of today it seems as if Toby is going as Poch seems to have suggested that he is no longer first choice. 
    One of the most frustrating (yet pleasant) things about being a life long Spurs supporter (notice, I said supporter, not fan.  There is a difference) is that we get some great players but can never hold onto them for long periods of success.  However, it's fantastic that we have a chairman and now a manager who so obviously share the same vision of long term growth, have set a strategy to achieve that growth without impacting either the longstanding club ethos, dressing room harmony, supporter comfort or it's profitability. 
    Toby Alderweireld s a great player.  Would love to keep him but his vision and ours will not match at this time.  He's almost 30, has had major injuries over the last two seasons and is looking for one last huge payday to further cement his financial future.  Kudos to him and when he leaves he will leave with my gratitude and fond memories.
    Under Levy and Poch we now have an exciting squad, reached the semi-finals of the FA cup twice in a row.  Finished in the Top 4 of the league for the last two seasons and looking for it again this season.  We need to push on and win something and that will go a long way to keep the players we have who for the most part seem to understand that we are on a mission.  We have a state of the art training facility that is the envy of every club in Europe and will move into a fantastic new stadium in the heart of our traditional home borough in a few months and we have a much sought after coach who gives young players their chances to develop.  What young exciting player looking to develop would not want to join this club if given a chance.   Toby has done well for us but his legacy will be the role he has played in the speedy development of his ultimate replacement - Davinson Sanchez. 
    Good luck Toby and here's to a bright future to my club, my one and only club...

    CRD reacted to Jamesinashby in PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Southampton   
    Once again we are producing some scintillating football but, as being pointed out on here, we are still conceding unnecessary goals. It was this problem that cost us those precious points in earlier games.
    As highly as I regard Lloris and fully accept his brilliance has been the reason we have won games, imo if we are to continue to advance, we need to consider, 'is Hugo the man to help'?Having said that, who the hell is out their to replace him at a fee and wage we can give?
    Something that shone out for me is how well Erickson, Dele, Son and Harry play together. Their enjoyment of playing together is a pleasure to watch. They clearly have formed a very strong bond and It encourages me to believe that they would love to stay together. It reduces my concern, when reading the papers they will move, may well not happen.
    A great game, great result and top 4 finish looking well within our grasp.

    Overall we were quite good today, against what seemed to be a disinterested Southampton unit.  The challenge with us seems to be that while we are playing some beautiful football up front and the Defence is staying steady Hugo loses focus.  Can’t understand it really.  Beaten on his near post and then a weak punch out for their two goals blotted his copy book.  That display deserved a clean sheet.  Onwards lads. Well done

    CRD got a reaction from mjbmedia in Soldado lacking.....   
    We need him to come good. We've been very patient but he simply does not work hard enough...lack of confidence, lack of desire or both? He was useless today. Can we totally blame him? Are we buying the "right" players? If we are why have we sent Holtby out on loan exactly a year after we brought him in. He showed some quality but got no consistent run. Why the unrest around Capoue?, whats happening with Lamela? How do we cure the issue with Soldado? Notice anything? We are having issues fitting our new signings into their roles. We have either purchased the wrong players or we don't know how to harness their true potential. Neither of these issues is the players' fault.
    Its a Workd Cup year. How many of our new signings came to the club to try to make a difference to the club and (or) to earn a squad place in Brazil? How many are putting in only enough to get through while conserving strength for a good World Cup tournament which will either give them the power to demand a new contract or get a move to another perceived bigger club? Are we complicit in that, hoping, as we have done in the past to buy cheap and sell high? Look at the reported fee we were asking Roma to pay for Capoue, 5 months and a serious injury after he joined us...
    Sorry to sound so cynical and I hope I'm wrong but " The Beautiful Game" makes those of us who love it more cynical everyday and our club seems to enjoy doing strange things!

    From 1995-98 Anderton played 39 games. From 2011-today Kaboul has played 35. And you all know what we called Anderton!
    Kaboul could be considered a liability?

    CRD got a reaction from smudger in Capoue on his bike   
    Adebayor had (has) an attitude. So do several other quality players. Its an issue to resolve with care, not draconian measures, especially with a new player from a foreign country who played well to earn his move. Started well, got injured, lost a manager and now seems to be behind a kid. Tim, do some man management, gather the team around you, lay down the law and then take action if rules are broken. Perhaps the same way you have treated Adebayor could work for any issues Capoue may have. Also,if necessary, extend an olive branch to Holtby. He has shown that he is a battler and willing to run through walls for the cause. I. World Cup yeareveryone with a foot in the door to their National Teams want to play. Capoue, Holtby, Lamella and Defoe all fall into this category. We've lost Defoe lets not put anymore essential squad players to the departure lounge.

    Not interested in reading it. Harry was not Spurs' saviour. We did as much for his career as he did for us. Fair trade, now he should just slink off into the past. Thanks for the one season of Champions League football 'Arry but your last season with all the distractions effectively destroyed your Spurs legacy. Say no more...

    I'm kinda unsure about the 3 at the back because Walker (and sometimes Vlad) loves to go forward and that would really leave our back vulnerable. Looking at our defense, unless we play well enough to convince me, I think 3 at the back is a bad idea.

    Regardless of what we think of the recent decisions made at the club, we need to be strong, positive and supportive.
     
    I hope everybody is prepared to a shit period , which can last a week, a month or more...
     
    It's difficult to change our approach to the season. Last week we were talking about whether we would have any chance to get into the top 4, now we are talking about when are we gonna win the next game (or not lose)
    Last week we were reading articles that said that on a table based on away games we would be second, now we are just wandering when the rot will stop...
     
    Let's endure this shit: it will get better, of course, and one day things will come together; in the mean time we may even enjoy some good game , maybe even this season
     
    I am well prepared to another defeat. Anything more than 0 point from this game would be a bless for me
     
    Again, I quite like Turk's line up. I was tempted to say Ade + Soldad, but maybe it's too much. Maybe some long ball for Ade will make the miracle
     
    I will be off to Italy for a week on Saturday, so I will miss the Soton and WBA games. I wonder how we will look like the next time I'll watch Spurs...

    I really fear for this game.  As I said in the west ham thread, there were some awful signs against Spam that Sherwood really doesn't know what he's doing at all, and that he is a big backward step on AVB.  Even when we took the lead I thought the team he picked and way he put the team out to play was poor and even if we got away with it today that it would be very bad if it managed more games.
     
    The sooner we get a new manager who knows what he is doing in the better.   Otherwise they should have given AVB time to try to sort out the issues, because to be honest he also did a lot of things really well.

    I have been one of the staunchest defenders of AVB...and I think sacking him needs to be really thought through. I'll make it clear from the outset, I want him to keep his job. But if he is going to be sacked then it shouldn't be a knee-jerk reaction...Capello? Obviosly not an improvement or long term option. Hiddink isn't a long term option either.
