    Mauricio Pochettino

    Must say I am a little concerned with the stories that Real Madrid want him. They traditionally treat us as their feeder club and take our best talent so stealing our manager wouldn't be out of the realms of possibilities. Hope the stories are made up.

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's All Laugh At West Ham

    East End kids would headbutt him the first time he touches them up. I suspect he prefers more complaint French teenagers.

    Champions League - 2017/18

    Can't help but feel the draw is rigged tbh. All the British teams that sell lots of tickets end up with much easier groups than we got but that is due to their history in CL. Should be based solely on where they finished in the league.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 18th July

    The thing that really concerns me is the ITK post about Poch getting frustrated that Levy is not getting him any of the players he has asked for. While we do have a strong team, there are places we need to strengthen and have needed to do so for quite some time. Failure to do that cost us the...

    Jadon Sancho

    What we are willing to pay a kid and what they will pay a kid are very different amounts. Also unless he is stupid, he will know he will eventually be on more money with Arsenal. If he is as good as he looks to become, he will get first team footy there. Arsenholes have a history of giving...

    Jadon Sancho

    At the end of the day, Arsenal can offer him more money than we can due to our wage cap so I would be surprised if he went to us.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 9th July 2017 STAR WARS!

    I must say that I am really concerned by the ITK about tensions between manager and club over the failure to sign players he was promised. Levy has always been a liability in the transfer market with his insistence on getting a bargain, offering way less than the value of the player and waiting...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 19th June 2017

    Have to agree with this. No manager signs great players all the time no matter how experienced. Arsenal, Chelski and even Man Utd under Fergie all signed a fair few donkeys that never made the cut. They get overlooked because of the great signings that keep them in the top 4. Poch is still...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 12th June 2017

    Barkley would be an interesting signing though I think MF is not really the area we are most in need of and would be far more excited about a prolific well known striker to work with Kane and give us some more depth. Call me a pessimist but if a deal doesn't happen fairly early then I can't...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - NOW OPEN

    Kind of irrelevant since we don't do much in the transfer market till deadline day anyway. The end date is of more significance to us than July 1st.

    Should we pay our players more ?

    Apparently he is. Unless he had a pay rise this year lots of sites posting wages have him on 30k in 2017

    Should we pay our players more ?

    Most of our first team, with a few exceptions like Kane, Loris and (unfortunately) Sissoko, are getting between 70k - 80k per week. Some get much less like Alli (50k), Rose (30k) and Janssen (25k) so we really are not even competitive with the big clubs as far as salary goes and unlikely to...

    Should we pay our players more ?

    It isn't how much we pay the club for the player. It is about the cap on the players wages once he signs. A bigger club comes along and offers to double their salary and it is adios to Spurs. All the biggest teams in the Premier League pay their players well over $100k a week while we pay our...

    Should we pay our players more ?

    True, until the best players we have bugger off to make more money. Berbatov, Modric, Bale etc. Also, with our wage structure we can't attract the biggest names in football however well we play.

    How has Bale done at Real?

    If the fee is not crazy then I would be annoyed he didn't try to rejoin Spurs since he apparently left due to lack of ambition.
