    Winks

    Winks is average so probably beat to offload. Dele I still think if the right manager sticks with him he can come good again. He has talent, big season for him, needs to take his chance in first team.

    The Fabio Paratici Thread...

    For me it’s a bit early to form an opinion, we’re only 3 games in and we’ve had 3 * 1 nil wins which is great but easily reversible and it will be a while before new signings make any significant difference. re the DOF v first team coach and decisions on who is signed I imagine it is done by committee, with all coaches present etc and also Daniel levy. We need to see where we are in 2-3 transfer windows time. Personally I think DOF is needed, too much now days (has been for years) for one man to coach, sort contracts, scout players, negotiate etc. Similarly chairman shouldn’t be doing it either so better for us if levy is little removed from transfers, but I I doubt he is too far away. Expect he is heavily heavily involved. I’m pleased the atmosphere amongst the players seems strong, a few defeats will be the real test. At least we won’t be as turgid to watch this year.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Yeah I agree, personally I blame levy most for this saga. He promised the lad he would allow him to leave if spurs floundered again, which they inevitably did. It must have been a complete renege of their agreement for Kane and his advisors to kick off. He’s been loyal to Tottenham and could have left before now I’m sure. Time is running out for him to win trophies a la sheringham so I really don’t blame him for wanting to leave. he has been naive to sign a 6yr deal without a release clause but probably had blind faith that spurs were on verge of some trophies. Hindsight eh? having said all that if he wants to go we should sell him. It’s time for others to step out of his shadow and stop being the Harry Kane team as pep put it! He should ask for transfer and then let’s get the deal done. I would say £150 is too high in current climate and given his age/injury record. I’d be happy if spurs got £130 for him, get 2-3 players in and go from there. It will then be on city to meet the asking price. If they try and low ball then that’s not something Kane should blame spurs hierarchy for. It depends on how high levy demands, we all know he loves some brinkmanship is these matters. I do think if the deal doesn’t happen Kane would still give his best for his teammates as that is what he has always shown on the pitch but he’ll never trust levy again, nor should he.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    I agree, we shouldn’t. He needs to request transfer and levy should get the sale done. Obviously if city take the piss and offer less than £120 m then tough luck for Kane.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    I agree, if he wants out he should request a transfer but he’s no different from any other footballer and it all depends what that shifty Levy has promised to him. but yeah, Kane should request transfer, spurs should take £120-130m for him and then everyone can move on. His ankles won’t last much longer I’m sure.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Sell him. he wants out, levy has seemingly broken a promise to him so the trust is completely gone, we’ll never get better price if we force him to stay. As much as I admire his work rate and what he’s achieved re goals and consistency he has been too important to us and we need to rebuild. sell him, get the cash, I’d wish him all the best and hopefully we can progress without him

    21/22 PL SPURS Vs Man City Sun 15th Aug 16:30 K.O.

    Missed the first half but thought we played very well second half and deserved win based on what I saw. L. Love Lucas Moura, guy never stops running like Son. Great flick on for the goal and then average defending by city. City starting season slow again (not the match as I hear the came out find blazing) but that won’t bother them, spurs need to keep up that work rate. So important to keep the momentum going so more of the same effort next game, need to check who we are playing! hopefully Kane saga will be sorted soon, sell him ASAP and get some replacements in, unless he has a change of heart. Although I think he should leave now, would like to see some other strikers get a chance at the club.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    It’s exactly the reason that Kane is prepared to take such drastic steps that says to me levy has shafted him. I think Kane has been naive, he should have had a min release clause added into his last contract but I can imagine levy the us promised him the earth regards squad strengthening etc. I say sell him ASAP for what we can get, I see no point in keeping someone who wants out. He’s done enough, did his bit with his goals and levy hasn’t come through on his side. If he’d kept poch I’m sure none of this would have happened but as usual levy stabbed him in the back and then screwed up with Jose appointment. Everyone trying to write out what Kane has done for the club is silly and unjust. How long should a guy stay if he’s ambitious, and yes he signed the contract but that’s was before level hit the self destruct button wasn’t it? this is the same chairman who was part of the ESL debacle, same chairman who shafted poch, same chairman who wasted the bale money, same guy who got Jose in. people need to wake up and see what part he has played in all this.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Everything we know about Kane is he is an honest hard working pro and commands respect of his peers. For him to not turn up simply says to me that levy has promised him sincerely and now he’s not playing ball. I think Kane has decided enough is enough and there isn’t much he can do, the relationship with levy has completely broken due to lack of trust. mid anyone is to blame for all this, it’s the chairman. That’s my honest opinion. Kane doesn’t strike me as an arsehole, yea not turning up is not great but he’s out of options and probably thinks if he tows the line and comes in levy will just think it’s ok to shaft him. It’s a trick situation because now levy will go into his hardball master negotiator mode (at least in his head) and drag this all out. Maybe, just maybe, the coach can talk Harry round but make no mistake, levy he mismanaged the whole situation all over again

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Christ, many are turning on Kane pretty quickly even after all his goals over the years. My take on it is he was most likely given a gentleman’s agreement by levy who has now reneged on that and Harry (if we believe he’s not turned up in protest) has had his hand forced. I think that’s why Kane had stated quiet, he’s banking on levy doing the right thing (ie abiding by the agreement) so I wouldn’t blame Kane if it’s true that he’s stayed away from training (I don’t care tbh). Could be typical media BS but still, regardless of contracts signed etc etc, if levy has promised him via gentleman’s agreement he could leave then we should look to sell him ASAP. We need the money to rebuild and can’t afford morale to go any lower which it might if he’s forced to stay. The squad isn’t strong enough with him, and his goals, to do anything and he’s one ankle injury away from decline. He has gone missing in some big games (he’s not alone in that!) and because he’s always in the team other strikers haven’t had a chance. I don’t know what levy’s valuation is but no doubt he’ll have to come down and compromise. If we get £130m for him we’ve done well in the current climate. Most likely this is going to be a long, drawn out affair, another shambles in the Spurs mould

    Is Kane Staying ?

    I really hope if he has a gentleman’s agreement he is allowed to leave. Get what we can for him, wish him good luck, and move on. Few years of transition for us, we had our chances to win something last 6-7 years, we didn’t and we won’t in the near future. I don’t blame Kane at all for wanting to leave now, he’s done more than enough with his goals. if levy goes back on whatever promises he made to the player then he’s a class A £&)*

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Well not that inspiring but it is a sign of where the club is at. We have little money in the kitty for transfers so they’ll have to wheel and deal and look for bargains. Levy is trying to spin doctor it but from where we were 2.5 years ago on the pitch we have come down hard. still at least we have a manager so need to back him, especially given we know what he’s working under. Will be a struggle to break top 6 this season I think.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    being a spurs supporter is purgatory or Gehenna (thanks Wikipedia), hades or hell! Gehenna seems to be where we are stuck, perhaps the best description for a club with Jewish connections. Seriously wtf happened to Tottenham, when I was a kid in the 80s at least they won a few trophies. With each passing day any goodwill Levy ever had for sorting the stadium out evaporates. 40 years of mismanagement (not all Levy obviously) surely we have to have an aging fan base because there can’t be any kids choosing Tottenham as a club. think they should change the club name, motto and emblem. Need a complete image change!

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/57537595 we need to get someone in who accepts we’ve only got cash from sales to spend. The club have no big money, tbf to levy COVID timing just after stadium is built is a disaster. personally if we are skint then let’s pray the academy can churn a couple out, we should sell kane to raise funds, whomever we get has to have track record of promoting youth.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    This is absolutely shambolic, levy has put himself and the club into a ridiculous situation. gattuso would be a terrible appointment, shocking. I’d rather we went with a young manager who knows the English game if we can’t get poch (as it seems now). What is Eddie Howes situation, is he available? There has to be a young manager worth a punt if we can’t get a decent experienced manager in. my old man joked about klinnsman but right now I’d take him. Even Martinez who I was against I now would snap your arms off to get him. Maybe that’s it, maybe levy is waiting for him. Spurs are a joke club at the moment, no trophies whilst pretending to be a big club, massive debt but no fans in that lovely stadium due to Covid (can’t blame levy for that, but it wish I could), sacked the best manager we’ve had for years because of one sticky period (in which we still got to the CL final), squad not refreshed, star player wants to leave, ESL debacle (how on levy thought that was going happen I don’t know). Lessons in how to destroy all the goodwill poch built up with that team in the previous 4-5 seasons. From now on if anyone asks we who I support I’ll say no one because levy is a disaster at the moment.

    I’m going to apply, took East Thurrock to Europe on football manager so I can do the job.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    I agree. we need a manager who will blood the youth players because we simply don’t have the cash to buy the best. We can take a pint on 20-30m players, maybe the odd 40m (can’t believe the numbers given I grew up in the 80s when anything > 1m was a BIG signing). I hope fonseca has history or promoting from within, without new owners these will be the conditions any spurs manager needs to operate under. not sure what state our youth team is in but hopefully there are 2-3 close to making jump to first team.

    England get win

    Thought they played well, tough opening game and good goal although Sterling scuffed his finish. it amazes me how often he doesn’t connect cleanly with the ball. Great at dribbling and gets in great positions but he’s never learned to strike a ball properly! i like the look of the squad. Not sure the way have tho experience or strength to beat a trance, Spain, Italy or Germany but nice to have some football to watch. Always enjoy to international tournaments away from all the tribal bollox of club football.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    This is the crux of the problem, levy thought he was this great mastermind and they got to the CL final despite poch. Levy got all those average to good players playing as a team and becoming a genuine top 4 team playing on the front foot, at least in his mind. then when inevitably without proper backing the team stagnated a little he fucking sacked the best fit manager the club has had for years… he said in the first episode of Amazon series that if he got it wrong it was on him, well he has and it is. I reckon he’ll sack whomever they get now when poch becomes available unless against all odds whoever comes in now works miracles.

    Moyes would not leave West Ham for spurs, I’m certain of that. We’d just have more ridicule directed at us for trying.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Agree, Kane should never have started, he wasn’t fit. I sort of understand the theory you give your best players every chance to prove themselves fit but Kane was a shadow. having said that it was a disastrous start and sisokko was a moron putting his arm up. Killed the mood and sucked life out of the team along with Mouras legs not being on pitch. Very disappointing, feel like I never actually watched spurs in the champions league final. Probably never ever get chance again, well in fact I’m certain we won’t. As for Kane leaving I think levy is going to make him stay unless we get £150m for him. I think clubs might not bother at that price in today’s market. It’s all going to be toxic at spurs next year especially with 2nd rate manager in place.
  23. Dazza1976

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Should never ever have sacked Poch. He needed support not stabbing in the back! Classic case of levy thinking he knows players and poch was under achieving. the club is now an absolute joke, the ‘spursy’ tag will never be lost. Levy needs to wake up and fast. I don’t even watch much at all any more and even I’m annoyed at how he’s running the club. The hardcore die hard fans must be going mental surely!
  24. Dazza1976

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    What a fucking joke. This isn’t going to go well with fans. I mean it could work in that miracles do happen but it’s a desperate move. is Gerry Francis available?

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Hope it’s true and we get the Ajax guy in. He’ll be used to operating on tight budget and hopefully be able to bring some decent Dutch lads across!
