    This seems/seemed like a doable deal to me. A player we targeted and wanted last January, only apparently missing out due to a change of manager at his (then) club, then missing out to Barca in the summer. Barca want to deal. Rumour is loan with option to buy, which I think should suit us...

    Fernando Llorente

    Would he benefit from having Moura play alongside him? I didn’t get to do watch today’s game, so I didn’t see.

    I’m definitely more favouring this kind of deal than another Ligue 1 gamble, as backup behind Kane and another senior option. I’m guessing it’ll be a fairly sensible fee given the league status and his contract situation. But and loan back. In today’s HG driven environment you can’t lose on a...

    Jarrod Bowen

    Malcom is younger than Bowen. Only 3 months, but we are talking about Bowen as a prospect, but Malcom as more finished.

    It’s a huge gamble though, because the first season we drop out, how many clubs will come calling for our manager, seeing what he has achieved with limited budget. Then our players will be in demand (currently are anyway) but also unsettled for the first time in a while. The first season we...

    That’s pretty much how I remember it. We were talking to them and making headway. Then they sacked the manager, appointed Poyet, but he demanded that keep him till summer. After that we went for Moura, and our interest seemed to drop off. Don’t remember any bad stories about Malcom being...

    This story seems to be getting some serious coverage, with the media suggesting it’s very likely to happen. May only be to get coverage, however, there’s significant coverage for something to not be happening.

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    I noticed on Sky earlier, Jaden Brown has gone to Exeter on loan, from Huddersfield. Hadn’t realised he’d gone there. Must’ve missed that.

    Maybe they are lining up Rabiot replacements.

    Timo Werner

    If that truly is the price, we should be all over it before anyone gets involved. Try and send Janssen their way to get him now, so they get a replacement forward. For once, I’d even take the buy for summer route, at least it means he’s in for preseason, unlike every other year when we’re...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    I meant more like De Jong and Sanabria Or Grillitsch and Werner Both with the potential to add Bowen or similar on top. One bigger outlay and one lesser, depending where the priority lay. Assuming Eriksen was circa £100m, then £60m ish for De Jong or Werner, £20m ish for Sanabria or...

    Player watch: Christian Eriksen

    Ok, dilemma time. If Real came in now with the sort of bid that allowed us to bring in two high calibre players, one in CM (Rabiot/De Jong/Grillitsch/Zakaria) and a Forward (Werner/Sanabria//Malcom), plus maybe a little extra cash left over as a sweetener to secure someone with potential for the...

    So, as he plays effectively the same position as Moura and Lamela, as a RWF in a 4231, is he really required. However, I actually think Lamela could take over as the LCM if we stay more 433. Naturally left footed, has the power, technical ability, and critically the discipline, workrate and...

    Player Watch: Mousa Dembele

    Sad to see him go, was virtually unplayable when fit. Comments from fellow pros speak volumes. Belgian and Spurs team mates generally all describe him as the worst player to play against in training, impossible to get the ball off him or keep it from him. Too strong and too technical. Just...

    Jarrod Bowen

    I’m not 100% sure we need him, plays a similar position to Moura and Edwards, if we want to olace faith with what we have. However, at least looking at players like this, we seemed to have a plan, if we’re not buying the finished article, then buy potential. Makes me wonder if we have a...
