    Player Watch Player Watch - Lucas Moura

    I'm hoping be can give us that extra edge that Salah managed to give Liverpool last year, and in doing so, may just relieve some of he attention in games on Kane, allowing him more space also. If/when we line up with a variation of 433 that includes Dier/Wanyama Eriksen - Lamela/Dembele Moura...

    Kane buried that August hoodoo now. And Moura is starting to give us that additional threat that shows why we signed him. Can see him getting a comfortable 15+ this season. Agree, some serious ruthless streak is required, control then and pick them off.

    Happy with that team. Plenty of flexibility, Dier can drop to form a back 3 with Eriksen partnering Dembele in CM, or equally Dier stays alongside Dembele and Eriksen and we go 433. Not seeing much in Utd's team to worry us, I always fancy Dembele to shut Pogba down, he has the ability and...

    Starting with Lloris Trippier, Aldeweireld, Vertonghen, Davies Dier, Dembele Moura, Eriksen, Alli Kane We then have the flexibility to move between formations based on the flow to the game Lloris Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen Trippier, Eriksen, Dembele, Davies Moura, Alli Kane Lloris...

    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...

    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.

    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...
