    Player Watch Player Watch: Erik Lamela

    Seems like one of our main goal threats at the moment, especialyl when allowed to spend time playing through the middle. Glad to see, after all his injuries, he is producing good performances and goals, and gives us a great option.

    Match Threads Spurs vs Fulham - Match Thread

    Very good performance. Could have done with being a bit more clinical in the first 20 when we were well on top, or getting the penalty decision. Little exposed at the back - very similar to England at the World Cup, opponents getting between wing back and left/right sided centre back, and no...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Erik Lamela

    Very pleased for him, always been pro-Lamela, even though he has t quite lived up to expectations. What is really pleasing is the extra half yard of pace he showed for the goal, of that is something he now has then it moves him from a good player to a very good player. I want to see him...

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Full completion after Christmas wouldn't be too bad. Atletico's new stadium was finished until at leats 8 months after the first game, I remember going to the New Wembley for an U21 international with Italy and it wasn't finished (but you couldn't tell until later events when new entrances...

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Indeed, and from what I read on here (haven’t chatted to the two contacts since the delay announcement) the delay isn’t really connected to much to who was in control of contractors. Mace won’t take too much of a reputational hit, a bit like the big accountancy firms whenever one of them...

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Not always, they answer to the client and if the client wants to choose certain contractors for jobs then so be it. In some cases, it gives the project manager scope to shift blame/responsibility. “If we had been able to choose all the contractors...” Word was Mace felt Levy was “picking his...

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    A couple of contacts on the Mace side have said for the last 12 months that things were behind schedule, and one complained about Levy’s choice of contractors (but construction companies always complain about contractors/sub contractors - just come from one and they couldn’t manage their own...

    Under promise, over deliver. I really like that the club is building a stadium that excels what others have, but Obviously the time frame has been too tight. Doesn’t look good on Levy, and the communication is poor. Would it have been better to do the build over an extra season in hindsight...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Some exciting weeks ahead for some of the youth players, shame Onomah hasn’t had a good run in pre-season due to fitness but I’m still a fairly big believer in him. When it comes to youth players, I think they up their level when surrounded by better players: Sterling will get better service...

    The Summer Transfer Window POST MORTEM THREAD

    In a way, I’m quite glad we didn’t sign anyone. There was space for one, maybe two top quality sit in the who would challenge for a place in the first XI, but Poch’s requirements are (rightly) not just about skill but mentality, and that is very hard to find in any market, let alone one where...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    There are lots of reasons why both us and English clubs struggle to get young talent ‘over the line’. Main thing is the money clubs have at their disposal here, and how important it is to be in the Premier League. Means club want tried and tested first, and have the money to do so. There is...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Difference with KWP is that when he is caught out defensively, it is far less likely that an ill-judged lunge in our penalty box will come

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread 28th July

    I am confident Levy will deliver as long as things don’t get silly. For example, if a team offered £20m more than what we can afford and think the player is worth, Levy won’t do that, but if we are convinced of a players value he will act quick if it means we beat the competition. Sanchez’s...

    Spurs pre-season 2018

    Very impressed with Amos. I always like the defensive midfielder who also makes the occasional run forward - shows he reads the game well, understands where his team mates to cover him, and has the courage to step up and not just sit in a little comfort pocket. Skipp also looked to have a bit...
