Latest rumours

Recommended Posts

They have almost the same genes but I would prefer his twin brother Lars! Its like chasing the real milli vanilli! ;-)

There have been some good options, but as so often we were too late. For Bender (of course Lars) I think we would have had good chances to sign him in season 11/12. Lars was already said to be one of the most promising talents in germany and Leverkusen didnt qualify for the EL. He would be our own Schneiderlin. And If not him his teammate Castro would be a good alternative, if not Castro then Kramer (who was linked with us this summer btw). What happened in the meanwhile, Castro moved to Dortmund, Bender is made the new Captain instead and Kramer took place for Castro in Leverkusen! Brother Sven is of no use, cause Gündogan will stay at Dortmund under new coach Thomas "the beneficiary" Tuchel and thats the reason why we are interested in Sven, I guess! I also think that Vogt and Geis had a great season last year! Especially Vogt kept Wimmer away from defensive embarrassments!

in italy, unexceptional Strootman. Former PSV man. Van Gaals favorite C(D)M btw. But he was sidelined for a long period of time, because he was injured badly. The surgery on his knee failed, but the italian press and also Strootman himself say he will be fit for the new season. Not sure how fit he really is, but Roma didn't want to sell him to Man Utd. Because of his injury his price droped immense. Anyway time will tell but It will be interesting to see what happens next, considering Roma has also two great CMs in Nainggolan and Pjanic! Baldini you fu****' lazy son of a b****, where are you when you are needed!

With french CM Veretout Timmy brought in a great signing, although I think he will need his time in the EPL. Payet played CM for Marseille under Bielsa, but its like using Fabregas as a "8". it works but is it necessary? Gonalons from Lyon could be also an option, but lets see what the new season bring when Lyon will have to play in the CL as well! Kondogbia would have been a nice signing. A real destroyer, Sandro type but not an injure prone and more talented. But we were too lame! IMO Stambouli wasnt a bad signing but he was never given a real chance. Think it was a tactical buy to make profit on him, cause I believed we will sell him to either Marseille or PSG, but in exchange for another player. In case of PSG for Cabaye. I was mistaken. Again we were too lame and came the Spursy way or shall I say the Levy way? Truth is there is only one player in defensive mid I would like to see from france but who is out of reach and that is Matuidi!

In the Eredivisie there is norwegian talent Henriksen. Reminds me of Strootman and Schneiderlin. To be fair he was long term injured but for his development he is a bit like Lamela, unbelievable talented but who needs acceleration time! Gudelj just signed for Ajax. Absolutely deadly when he gets the chance to score. For a player on his position, amazing! Only Yaya is better at this position. But this guy only cost Ajax about 4 million Pound! Last but not least, my favorite Davy KLAASSEN, KLASS player who can play at every position in midfield! I strongly recommend him not only because of his price.

As many I would also have loved to see Schneiderlin in a spurs shirt, but lets be honest our chances to get him were nil! Not for that amount and not after we lured Poch away from Soton! FELLAINIs price dropped cause it looks like van Gaal has no use for him. I really recommend him! For Alli I really don't know how far, strong and talented he is, but I would give him a run in cups and see how he's doing. Wanyama was not given a chance when Poch was in charge of Soton, so I guess Poch wouldn't want him, although I think he is a tidy player. Liked him for Celtic!

Truth is there are too many! Natcho(Moscow) for our jewish supporters, still believe Banega would be top, Parejo from Valencia looks promising, tackle monster Suarez who was linked with us, but who signed for Fiorentina. Long forgotten Veloso (for people who play fifa, he is playing for ukraine side Dynamo Kiev), Fred and Fernando and many many more...

Sorry, think it was too much information, but I haven't found time to sort out my inquiries yet! ;-)

Spurfect - just wonder what you do for a living? Maybe you should ask Mitchell for a job in Spurs European scouting team!

Watched a few YouTube vids of him. Not the highlight ones, but the ones that show all his touches in a game. To say he didn't look too promising would be an overstatement.

I also watched some match vids of Yarmolenko. Now THAT is a player I'd like to see in a Spurs shirt!

We should not take these YouTube clips as a sign there is a player in the making and I'll tell you why. Not that long ago I watched numerous clips of a player we were about to sign, I then spoke in great depth to a Romanian guy I worked with, he gave vlad chiriches the most unreal glowing report(the best player since Georgi hagi.) The clips showed vlad looking as comfortable as Franco baresi on the ball. I then predicted this guy would eventually play for Barcelona, he looked that good, never ever again will I rely on clips to assess players. I suggest you guys need to be careful to.

we are far away from that if our mid isn't sorted

Totally agree. For me we will finish 6th at best. Does not matter who we sign we do not have the creativity in midfield, the solid protection for our back four or the depth in our very weak squad. Guys don't get carried away because we are nowhere near the top 4 or Liverpool. I personally would replace walker with trippier, bentaleb needs to be replaced, we need 2 new wide men and another forward, only then could we possibly challenge the top four.

Fair point, but the clips I'm talking about are not the highlight ones, but the ones that show all of a player's touches in one game.  And I watched 3 of them for N'Jie.  I'll admit that if we looked at Harry Kane game clips from 2011-2014 he would probably look like crap too, so I'm hoping this guy follows a similar trajectory.

Soldado is gone, N'Jie is pretty much official (probably going to be announced later tonight or tomorrow morning), Ade strongly linked to West Spam. Still need a CM but I'm not hearing any news that we're linked with one at the moment. We've got about 2 weeks left in this transfer window. Chop Chop Levy!!!

Not sure a CM is as critical.  With Pritchard back, Eriksen can drop deeper.  Alli also looks very promising.  So at least we have options.  More important to bring in a striker and pace across the front line.  The latter is done with N'Jie.  We get in Berahino and second striker is sorted.  We also have Onomah that we can throw into some of the EL and cup matches.  So all in all, not too far off covering our pressing needs.  Won't get us top 4, but will make us competitive and give us a good shot at 5th.

Typical Spurs just sign him up FFS

More like typical Chelski.  The tweet says a "bigger" club and there is nothing we can do if the player and club got a better offer from someone else.  We're not going to go into a bidding war with any of the top 4, that's for sure.  Tbh, I'm not terribly disappointed.  Not that my opinion really matters, but personally I wasn't impressed.  I just feel sorry for the player, who more than likely is going to get loaned out to some Belgian team and end up in neither League 1 or PL playing with a competitive team playing at a high level.

I doubt Poch is looking for a CM. We already got 5 midfielders in the squad.

If we can get N'Jie and Berahino, the squad is pretty much complete. Still waiting for Ade and Lennon to go.

Agree, I'm happy that we signed Trippier. For Bentaleb I don't know. On one side I wonder why we extended his contract, on the other side I would give him the time to improve considering his age. There is a lot of pressure on the lads, especially on the young ones who are dealt and rated very high. Just came home and watched the matches tonight. One of the matches was the Villa - Manure game. To see how shit Depay played tonight was absolutely and unbelievable awful. Head shaking! This guy has definitely nerve wobbles and looked totally stressed!

Don't want Eriksen drop deeper, it seems he hasn't understand what we all see in him and he is lazy in defending! Hope he can find a way to come clear with Lamela. They are so gifted if they play together they could move mountains! I also try to see it positive, we reached the 5th place last season mostly played with Bentaleb and Mason! If you think about it - a fecking miracle!

Not sure about that. we were linked with Kramer and in contact with the BVB for Bender. We also made an official bid for McCarthy. Veretout was also reported that he chose Villa over us because of the high number of midfielders we have. So I guess there was also a real approach!  

 

In every transfer period David Villas words come up to me who said in an interview, "Atletico Madrid only need 3 days for what Tottenham needed 3 months!"

I guess its always a mix-up between insecurity and Levy!
