    Alderweireld twice refused new contract, wanted huge wage hike

    I thought the rumors from the club were that it wasn't about the total wage amount (which is not wholly unreasonable), it was that Toby's agent (who I believe is his relative?) had already agreed a deal and then demanded more money at the last minute, which pissed off Poch.

    :wtf: might as well be the Wonderwall

    The Spurs Transfer Wishlist & Scouting Thread

    My list: LB: Sessegnon - maybe I'm clueless but I think if Fulham goes down this is almost nailed on. We like him, he's in London, we can pay him well, he has a relatively clear path to the first team. I don't think there's a better move for him atm, unless Pep or Jurgen is promising he'll be a...

    RB the options/solutions

    We are simply not going to sell both our senior players at a position and start the season with only a completely new and untested signing and a youth player who has not won a place over either of the aforementioned senior players. It leaves us completely bare if there is an injury or the...

    Tottenham hold talks over £22million Joachim Andersen

    Decent scouting writeup I found:

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    The CB point is moot unless he's had a change of heart and decided he wants to play there. He's clearly Premier League quality as a midfielder, so if he can't play his way into our team, he'll have no shortage of options elsewhere. Personally I think he's an option Poch loves having, and he'll...

    I mean, we have a U23 Player of the Month striker that we just sent out on loan to get senior football...

    Kaz Sterling - Sunderland

    Shame, hopefully he's out for a minor knock and not a sign of things to come... Seems to have won some of the fans over at least.

    Player Watch Player watch: Son Heung-min

    Sure, but that's one way to get rid of a player, and probably the likely scenario if we were to dump many of the players in our squad. You don't have to walk in one day and say "piss off, we bought a replacement for you, get your things and leave". Telling an ambitious player that he's fallen to...

    I mean, he sold Ryan Mason and he bleeds Spurs and had the perfect attitude. Don't think Soldado ever had character issues either, or Chadli or Wimmer that I can recall.

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Anyone seen much of Cirkin? Seems like he's made some big steps this year as a 16 year old, U17 England debut and playing with the U19s in Europe and U23s a bit. Is he another possible fast-track to the first team? Or are we maybe just weak at that position at older age groups. How does he...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Juan Foyth

    Sanchez has had a vast amount more senior playing time though. Foyth makes mistakes, but I haven't seen anything yet that a little experience, coaching, and confidence couldn't probably fix.

    Unfortunate, but for a little perspective, our average age out there is 18.5, theirs is a little over 19.5, and their defense is 21. Not exactly men against boys, but a reasonably significant difference.
