    The Summer Transfer Window POST MORTEM THREAD

    My neighbour has a brand new Merc and my car is 12 years old. He has new stuff delivered on a daily basis and we are 'financially in different worlds'. The thing is though, all my stuff is bought and paid for and all his stuff is on credit. If for any reason he stops earning, he'll lose the lot...

    Schalke not interested in loaning Danny Rose

    Good. Hope he gets his head down and recaptures his form.

    Janssen stripped of Spurs shirt number

    It's a bit melodramatic to say he's been 'stripped' off the shirt (as if he's in disgrace). Fact is, he won't be playing for us again so he doesn't need a shirt number.

    Do you enjoy gambling?

    Addictive activities are only a problem for people who can't handle their addictive traits. Gambling wrecks vulnerable people's lives in the same way that alcohol and drugs do, but the massive amount of gambling adverts (particularly during sporting events) seems to target those people in a...

    Do you enjoy gambling?

    I'm not a gambler and have no interest in it at all. What I'd like to add to the thread though is the amount of online betting adverts on TV. What I particularly take exception to is the stupid strap line 'When the fun stops, Stop'. How fucking ridiculous is that. It's like saying to an...

    Toby: Let’s win the title in new stadium

    Mousa played a hell of a lot of football last season for someone who is often described as injury plagued. If Winks can get fit and share a good part of the load Mousa will be a fantastic asset. If he wants a 3 year deal (or whatever) I'd say that the extra few million would be worth it, even if...

    Toby: Let’s win the title in new stadium

    Would be nice if Toby was part of whatever we achieve this season with a nice new contract in his pocket.

    Player Watch Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    Unfortunately, some people need a whipping boy and Aurier gives them what they need. I don't think anyone did particularly well v Newcastle but in spite of the sensational cross for Dele's goal, Aurier still gets pelters from some. IMO he needs to be coached on his defensive positioning most of...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    Both him and Trippier are much better suited to 3CBs and Davies is better in a back 4. IMO it's about time KWP got at chance at RB - he seems a more steady all round player.

    Match Threads Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur - Match Thread

    Well, we wobbled our way over the line with quite a few looking like they were running on fumes. Pretty sloppy performance all round and a few players looking like they need a month off. 3 very welcome points in the bag though.

    Match Threads Newcastle vs Tottenham Hotspur - Match Thread

    Hope to see Dier dropping into the back 3 with Aurier and Davies pushing forward and Eriksen dropping deeper to pull the strings, otherwise that CM2 of Dier and Sissoko looks horrible.

    Tottenham fans are raging over lack of signings but Levy deserves respect

    Let's see how we survive the remainder of the transfer window and where we are at Christmas. After the summer the majority of our first XI have just had, it would be some achievement to still be in the mix in January, but even if we are, it's a monumental task to make it to the end of the season...

    The Summer Transfer Window POST MORTEM THREAD

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if we had to buy in January. I know it will be expensive blah blah, but most of our first team went a long way in the World Cup and I'm expecting a number of fatigue related injuries before Christmas. With a bit of luck we can still be in the mix come January but I...

    Player Jack Grealish

    I don't think he'll sign a new deal. He needs to get out of the Championship and he'll know he would have been pushing for an England place if he'd got his move. Villa screwed him over (or the new owners did), and although he loves the club I doubt if he'll want to hang around there. Wouldn't be...

    Tottenham need Alderweireld to prove his commitment

    If he won't sign a new contract or Poch really wants him out I could see Levy wanting to take 40-45m for him in the European window. It would keep him away from Man Utd but after the zero spend I think the pitch-forks would be out for Levy. I really hope he patches things up and signs a new deal...
