    Won’t make their fans happy but it sounds good to me!

    Player Wilfried Zaha

    I gotta be honest, I look at that list and it’s not so bad. Sissoko I can’t defend, other than apparently Poch asked for him? But the others all made sense, gambles in positions that weren’t critical. In hindsight you can criticize any one of them, but that’s pretty unfair. Njie and Nkoudou were...

    Benjamin Pavard

    No Pavard + ITK on needing homegrown players? Welcome Lascelles.

    Player Wilfried Zaha

    Probably 1 or 2 going their way on perm or loan as makeweight I would guess. I still think they will hold out to see if Chelsea move as a Hazard replacement, as they can both pay more and offer better players in exchange.

    Genuinely prefer that to some £28m makeweight we don’t really want.

    Seems with Martial out, our forward list is down to Zaha, Pulisic, Malcolm, and maybe Bailey. All are going to cost about the same amount at 50-60m (Pulisic potentially a bit more). I would say in that group Zaha is the lowest risk, and Pulisic the highest potential.

    No but it surely could be a man who has been informed it’s too late.

    Agree, if this is going to happen I’d expect movement soon.

    Player Wilfried Zaha

    From the Express: “When the initial and informal contact was made between Crystal Palace and Everton regarding Zaha and the Everton representative suggested they would be willing to pay £35m plus add-ons, the response was ‘you paid £50m for Gylfi Sigurdsson, do you think we’re stupid!’...

    Rewind 12 months, I bet you can find someone posting almost this exact comment, but with Chelsea instead of Liverpool.

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Can’t put into the transfer forum as only HITC are reporting on it, but we are trialing the Norwegian U-15 goalkeeper Isak Middtun Solberg next week, according to his manager.

    Would he really go to Everton if we were still interested? Optimistic perhaps but this may indicate we are more confident on one of our other forward targets.

    Player Matthijs de Ligt

    Doubly concerning that if he had asked anyone at all, he would have known that this would seriously hurt his ability to move to Spurs well after knowing we were interested, so perhaps he had already decided he wanted to move to a bigger club.

    Player Jack Grealish

    Or, you know, just get the player our manager asks for. We’ve got four or five players I’d be happy to leave out of our squad over Gaz, so I’m not sure we are super worried about HG at the moment.

    And presumably Gazinga is being groomed to step into the backup or eventually even starting GK role. If we bought him to be GK3 forever then that is silly, but if he saves us shopping for a new Vorm in a years time that’s probably 25m saved.
