    Spurs players hiding behind Pochettino's loyalty and letting him down

    I recall watching Guardiola in the Amazon docu-series tell his players that he'll always defend them in the media, but he'll be quite blunt & critical in private. I hope this is the case at the training ground, but after yesterday's team & formation selection, that hope is rapidly disappearing...

    Players blame intensity of training schedule for poor Premier League start

    Not entirely sure how you can blame the intensity of the sessions when you're paid to be razor sharp? Seems contradictory to me considering the press conferences are generally postive. Training has to be sharp & intense, even more intense than the games, so that when it comes to match day the...

    Stats show Walker-Peters is ready to take over from shambolic Aurier

    Shocked he's not been used more already. Amazed when Aurier & Foyth were missing that he had to watch Davinson fill in at RB, twice. Surely, Aurier's last 2 x performances show he's not the long term answer. KWP has done a good job when he's been involved. I understand he will make mistakes...

    Eriksen set to reject attempts to sell him in January for £30m as he looks to leave for free

    Should he leave he want to leave on a free thats down to him, but surely a club could be persuaded, or encouraged to pay a rather nominal fee for him to leave sooner rather than later. I agree that I would shove him in the reserves, as well as Wanyama. Both have been poor. Concerted efforts...

    Pochettino sends stern message to stars ahead of tricky Leicester clash

    Every time I am unable to watch a game I feel the urge to look for reports describing whether we're playing well or not? Whether we're exciting, dangerous, or ponderous & sedentary? Its sad to say, but it feels like we've got worse. I no longer enjoy watching us play & it feels a world away from...

    The problem with Danny Rose and Spurs' familiar defensive mistake

    Infuriating in the build-up to their 1st goal; instead of mullering the ball down the left-wing allowing us to regroup following penalty appeals, he dithers & tries to be clever. Culpable here, Newcastle & Villa. Hopefully Davies & Sessegnon can get fit & put themselves in the reckoning.

    Pochettino concerned at lack of plan B

    Marcelo Bielsa once said said, "I only believe in Plan A. Plan B is to get Plan A to work." We don't look good & its looking rather devoid of dynamism and inspiration. I recall our 4-0 home victory versus WBA on 14th January 2017 & remember almost welling up with pride because this resembled...

    Can Lo Celso transform Spurs into genuine title contenders?

    It all went to pot once they said the gaffer favours a 1-4-2-3-1 formation when the diamond was the formation Pochettino tried to shoehorn our players in to for most of last season. The hopeful double-pivot of Winks & Ndombele with a no.10 stationed in front in the shape of GLC would be ideal...

    Spurs closing in on deal to sign Sessegnon, 2 may go the other way

    Wonderful news, if this could happen. I'm hopeful that the Janssen deal reported last week is also real & that happens.

    Juventus In for Rose

    I'm pretty sure they already have Alex Sandro & Luca Pellegrini filling in at that position, so unless they feel they need to part ways with one of them, then this is a non-starter. I really can't see who would sign him.

    Second raid on Leeds with move for Phillips

    I like the look of Kalvin Phillips; assured & very cute in possession. I think if he signed, then it would most likely, either be the end of Dier in that holding role, or the end of Dier as a Spurs player. Regardless, I'd welcome the signing of Phillips, if he did sign.

    Ndombele signing should allow move to 3-4-2-1 permanently

    Three at the back is horrible; you only have to look at the Ajax home leg, whereby our CB's were left marking no-one, whilst the opposition played freely in front of them. Creatively we also look stunted. Not a fan.

    What can Spurs expect from Tanguy Ndombele?

    This guy is outstanding. The engine & power that Sissoko possesses married with the skill & tecnhinal ability of Dembele. Ndombele & Winks in the double-pivot would frightening: both press-resistant, excellent techinical ability & with Ndombele being the engine, WInks will have the room to...

    Spurs agree £65m deal for Lyon's Ndombele

    Class player. Hopefully follows with Jack Clarke & Ryan Sessegnon. The young Danish player Skov-Olsen, also looks a player & if he was brought in, then its all very dynamic & quick, which is what we haven't looked for all of last season. I'd love it if we could also bring in Dani Alves with...

    Spurs will demand Asensio from Madrid in Eriksen transfer deal

    Very much 'pie-in-the-sky', but were a bid to happen & if we could get €45million bid plus an initial 2yr loan deal for Asensio with a possible option to buy, then its seriously worth accepting. Asensio is a class player & could definitely play as an inside-forward coming off the right-wing...

    Real Madrid drop interest in Eriksen to pursue Zidane’s top target, Pogba

    Eriksen is a good player, but if he's looking elsewhere, then with 1-yr left on his deal, we ought to sell him for as much as we can. Real Madrid would not have been the only club to look at him, so another suitor for his signature won't be too much of an issue. It will interesting to see how...

    Solskjaer thinks Dier is ‘hugely underrated’

    I like Dier as a no.6, however, should the right money come in, then its worth considering. The emergence of Skipp as a technically adept player capable of receiving on the half-turn, passing under pressure & playing penetrative passing. Its just my opinion, but it gives me comfort that we...

    Lloris urges Spurs to not throw hard work away after Champions League final defeat

    For me thats worrying when the Captain says, “There is one club who sets out to win every competition in which they play, and that is not the case with Tottenham." The desire to win every competition we're involved ought to be the aim for us, if we're to still consider ourselves a big club. I'm...

    How Moussa Sissoko transformed himself from passenger to driving force

    I have been culpable for calling for his imminent transfer because he doesn't fit the mould of a 'Tottenham player'; a player who is technically gifted, clever in his movement and determined in his actions. I am pleased (and apologetic) that he has turned his whole game around & become a...

    Jenas highlights importance of Harry Winks for Champions League final

    Winks is probably the one I have been desperate to see back because his first-touch, passing & movement having severely missed in that no.6 spot. Both he & Sissoko in the double-pivot fills me with me far more confidence than Wanyama, or even, Dier. Everyone will need to have at least a 8.5/10...
