    Club Finances - Swiss Ramble

    I'm sure this has been done to death elsewhere, but does anyone have a clear idea of how much of the stadium has already been paid for and how much still needs to be paid for? I can see from those figures that we have spent a huge amount on infrastructure, but it's not clear how much of that is...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Those wage demands that might be driven up are the exact reason why he is holding out on signing a new contract at Spurs. He could sign a contact here for significantly more money, but he thinks that he will get even more if he is bought on the cheap somewhere else at the end of the season. He’s...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    By the same logic, why would a team buy him for £50m now if they could have him for £25m in the summer?

    Injury Updates

    I always thought (not as any sort of medical professional) that it was unlikely that Wanyama would be able to have a long career. He is huge, but also (when at his best) extremely mobile. The forces on his joints when he accelerates must be unreal.

    Mauricio Pochettino

    No. It’s wishful thinking to think that he’s not distancing himself from the United job because he thinks the media will make fun of him if he does. He hasn’t ruled it out either because he is considering it, or because he thinks it benefits him to allow people to believe he might be...

    Mauricio Pochettino

    I have no problem with the press officer shutting down sky sports, but this (the bit in bold in particular) is such wishful thinking. If Poch wished to rule himself out of the job he could easily do so without making anyone doing ridiculous. There are clearly two possible reasons why he hasn’t...

    Nice to see Arsenal extend their losing run

    Not necessarily. I would assume that the club would not undertake the certification tests until they are confident that they would pass. The tests were cancelled before, rather than failed. Spurs may now be confident that the stadium is ready to pass the tests whenever they are scheduled, which...

    Player Watch The Kyle Walker-Peters Thread

    He hasn't said the exact opposite of what he meant to say. He is clearly discussing the quota imposed by the homegrown players rule. Selling homegrown players clearly affects our position in relation to that rule.

    Player Watch The Kyle Walker-Peters Thread

    We’re not “replacing him this KWP”. We already have KWP as an option in the squad. Selling Trippier would clearly weaken the squad. It wouldn’t improve the homegrown situation. In fact, if we then had to buy another player from abroad to replace Trippier, it would worsen the homegrown player...

    What if it's another four or five months? I would much rather we just moved in and got the systems working in the meantime.

    This is a bit annoying, because it creates a completely false picture of the so called naysayers and yea-sayers. This is a large construction project. Everyone knows that such projects can and very often are delayed by unforeseen problems. Everyone knows that no one can guarantee that the...

    No one has said it's a non-issue or good news. It's not even a straw man - it's a completely made up point.

    Think he’s a spurs fan too. Not that it makes a huge amount of difference.

    The point is that while the pictures may be real, what he says about them is not. So when he posts a picture of a cardboard box on the floor and says “there’s no way we will pass a fire test in the next few months”, all we can glean from that is: somewhere, in a room that may or may not be in...
