What world are you living in. We aren't Man City.
A brilliant player, who can play in Alli position, or Dembeles. Young and English, Poch would turn him into a superstar. Would be magnificent for us
We won't get him.....
I think this season has shown that we've now reached a tipping point where players earn so much money some just dont give a shit and being talented is not enough. Not that it ever was but I think its more so now.
Newcastle, Villa, Man City and Chelsea turning up when they feel like it if at all.
It seems to me no coincidence that us and Leicester have the best team spirit and are in 1st and 2nd place.
For a long while a massive part of PL Management has been about getting these overpaid so called superstars to put a shift in so while its important that anyone we bring in has ability I'd say its more important they fit our (oh God I'm going to say it ) philosophy.
I've no idea whether a certain player would fit into our squad or not, does anybody really, so in Poch we trust. Although I think we all know certain arseholes who wouldn't.
I would say though we need at least another striker and another dm.
If we'd brought in ANYONE from the Leicester team last summer we'd have moaned like fk and they've just shown that in the right system and with commitment anything is possible. Just square pegs in square holes. Simplez.
So I'll be holding any opinions on any signings back until we see what they can do.
Just look at Alli and Wimmer and on the other hand Soldado and.... well, take your pick lol.
I'm thinking he'll be looking for a move to get regular footy. Fair enough! Not a bad player at all. Got everything in his game, other than pace & work rate, 2 of the most essential things in a Poch team. He's certainly not as bad as some of our supporters make out.
Id be rather chuffed with that and can see all of these on our list.
Can Schneiderlin drop and playing the 3rd CB ala Dier? I've never had the pleasure of seeing him much live.
I know others have questioned the financials here but with some player sales, TV revenue + CL money to follow, 70-100m isn't as whacky as it used to be.
We need a more capable squad that can really keep up the tempo moving into next season - unfortunately the weeks we've lost dembele and alli showed us up in respect of pushing Leicester harder.
I have full faith in the club doing this right though. Exciting times.
Too old, too expensive
Not just Spurs fans, although for not for altogether the same reasons.
To be honest, is there really any point in this article? That's not a dig at you mate, but a pop at the waste of effort by the article writer.
As if Poch would've just signed a new contract if he hadn't been assured of everything within the article?
Hopefully this is a thinly veiled message to the supporters, letting us know improvements are afoot.
Lacazette (better striker, better footballer, more tenacious) over Batshuayi and I think that would be an absolute corker of window.
Move Chadli, Carroll and Fazio on. Add Pritchard & KWP to the first team squad.
None of those signings will happen though.
I've not seen Barkley have 1 brilliant game let alone him be a brilliant player. He is young and may become a good player but I have seen little to suggest he is one now and the money it would cost to get him it would not be a good deal for us imo
Plays for Basel, really good young prospect. Athletic unit but with good skill set and work ethic. Has been playing as a wide forward a lot this season I believe but has potential to make a CF a in the Kane/Lukaku mould eventually. I like him a lot.
10m price tag in the article is a joke. We'd be lucky to get him, West Ham luckier and Aston Villa . Must have been written a long time ago.
That article was written in 2015. He's worth quite a bit more now and I doubt we are interested.
That seems like a very recent article.
I'll politely disagree. I think he's a greedy bastard & not at all a team player.
That's not to say he's a bad player, he isn't. I just don't personally understand the hype from the pundits.
I can only apologise. I didn't spot the date at all
