    If we're not gonna buy tier 1 players at their peak because they're too expensive, we need to take more punts on players like this, as opposed to more mid range gambles. We need to apply some focus on our academy/development phase, having lost Madueke, Forson, Griffiths, plus Edwards looking...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Amos looked keen today, but I noticed a couple of times players seemed hesitant to pass to him. When Son broke down the left and Amos made a run into the box, Son hesitated and looked for the pullback to the runner rather than cross to Amos. Couple of other ocassions he made himself available...

    Match Threads Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur - Match Thread

    There's this option, or Eriksen to drop in alongside Dier and Sissoko in a 433, how we've lined up this summer. Actually some decent flexibility in the lineup.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    I can see that, but equally if they won't sell at the price we want, surely we have to adjust the price accordingly, because holding onto them does us no favours in terms of getting their value back up. A player is only worth what someone is prepared to pay, and keeping them here on principal...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread DEADLINE DAY!

    It's not over till 5pm, but that doesn't sound good. We really are stuck between not buying for the sake of it (because that gets you in the situation of not being able to move them on in the future), but equally we've not addressed any gaps in the squad, so how can you expect to close the gap...

    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    Smalling or Rojo?? Utd really are arrogant enough to expect us to roll over aren't they. Farce.

    All the ITK suggests we're still working on things, and until it's over there's no need to panic. I do find it frustrating that we haven't addressed some of the areas to improve, and despite the comments it's been a tough market, all other clubs have managed to do business. But then maybe...

    That's the key factor here. Poch must have been given assurances to sign on for his new contract. As an aside, I'm reading the other part as we will not buy sub standard just to get someone through the door, we want Martial, however if a similar calibre player comes available, and players are...

    Hasn't it been stated multiple times by Herc, Trix etc, that a bid going in is one of the last things to happen, most of the work has been done by then, all the behind the scenes talks with agents, players etc, after permission is sought from the club obviously. Once all the pieces are in place...

    Sounds like Grealish is moving in the right direction. Decent addition, player who can carry the ball and pick a pass, Eriksen understudy. Agree with others, perhaps a DM option as the second signing, and then sounds like we're hanging out hat on Martial being involved in the Toby deal as the...

    Seems things are starting to move. Probably always the case going into the last week. This is where we have to hope previous comments about the legwork already being done and just waiting to pull the trigger is on the money.

    Player Player Watch: Mousa Dembele

    Had hoped something could be worked out with Brozovic. You never know, transfers do switch back on at short notice.

    Everton are spending some serious cash again.

    Player Anthony Martial

    In reality, bringing in Martial and Brozovic for example, on decent length contracts, if take a hit on seeing if Demebele could be part of the Brozovic deal, protect yourself against him going for free, and also free up another HG space. Move Nkoudou and Janssen also, plus Tony as part of the...

    Player Anthony Martial

    As much as I rate Martial, without being sure to shift all/most of Nkoudou, Sissoko, Janssen and Llorente, just for squad quota spaces, I'm not sure it's feasible. That's why I think Zaha is more suitable. Agree with the other two though.
