    Spurs ramp up transfer pursuit of Fulham starlet Steven Sessegnon

    Absolutely - Steven might have been or looked better at U21 or U23 (might) but after that it's just ridiculous not to judge Ryan as the better player at the moment. That's not to say that Steven couldn't overtake Ryan in a couple of years (although pretty unlikely imo).

    Poch shows no concern over Spurs’ right-back shortage

    We will be 3rd at worst this season. Happy to be mocked in May if we aren't.

    Poch shows no concern over Spurs’ right-back shortage

    I really like Sanchez, but as a CB not RB. He had a torrid time and was hopelessly exposed in that position against that attack. I have zero problem with him and a massive problem with having Aurier on the bench, yet not bringing him on for the 2nd half, or the last 30 mins (which he must have...

    The problem with Danny Rose and Spurs' familiar defensive mistake

    Haven't read the article but don't need to, i've said in several different threads this summer how i don't think Rose is anywhere near as good as people think he is. Was thinking to myself this morning that Rose was possibly partly liable for 4 of our 6 conceded goals this season already - which...

    Has Pochettino’s dinner date with Levy eased the tensions?

    In your opinion - obviously the club would look at the potential resale value of any deal but you are just guessing that we would look to sell NDombele on in a few years and that he was purchased with have an eye on doing just that. Might have been the case pre stadium but doubt that is the...

    Has Pochettino’s dinner date with Levy eased the tensions?

    As soon as i saw we'd signed Clarke i assumed it was a 'Pleat' signing - as i was under the impression he still did some scouting for us at lower league level ? So the signing wasn't a surprise and seemed very sensible, and whoever signed him would undoubtedly have known he wasn't up to the...

    Team v Arsenal (A)

    Yeah i'm sure in future NDombele would be great in this sort of game, and maybe he would have been in this one, i just thought he was a bit off the pace defensive-wise so far, which is what we can't afford to be, so for that reason alone i'm ok with him missing. There should be plenty of room to...

    Team v Arsenal (A)

    Yep that was my thinking, it's the thing that'll catch Arsenal out the most and it's the thing he's best at. Need to be strong and physical in the middle and also to definitely play the pressing game, so will need the fit 'up to speed' players in the XI. Funnily enough from that point of view...

    Team v Arsenal (A)

    Really ? I'd agree that they could IF we are not united as a squad, but purely on footballing terms i can't see why they would given that we have the option of playing Sissoko and Winks in midfield in front of (two from) Jan/Toby/Sanchez and either Davies or Rose at left back and with the...

    Team v Arsenal (A)

    Yep, that's how i see it - it will be an open and completely different type of game to last week and we have the players and 'style' to dispossess their laughable attempts to play out from the back and cause them huge problems. But you need a team pulling in the same direction and all working...

    Definitely worth a read.

    The beginning of the end...

    Weirdly, i think Arsenal is winnable due to the occasion and the fact they play far too open, which will suit us. But then it will only suit us if we are all 'up for it' and together. It could end up a bloodbath. A week ago i'd have made loads of excuses about the players missing/not up to...

    The beginning of the end...

    Just back from a dog walk with a friend, and was saying to them that i'd be half tempted to pull the plug on Poch now, especially with a rejuvenated Mourinho available - so to see this post is an eye opener. An inconceivable thought a week ago tbh but it cannot be lost on Levy or the fans that...

    Match Threads Spurs vs Newcastle - Match Thread

    Sanchez 'may' have been out of position but main culprit is Danny 'standing watching' Rose. Of course you aren't allowed to knock him cos he tackles hard.

    Spurs v Newcastle - team news

    As good as Moura has been, Son is better, and has to start. Personally i'd have Son,Moura and Kane all playing. As long as the defence is alert and everyone plays to their ability i would have as attacking a line up as possible (without going full Ardiles).
