My inside info has told me Wilfred zaha is at spurs training ground to complete his move from crystal palace, I think he would be a decent signing,

Believable2 Unbelievable4

Your inside info is ssn. Any ITK's actually know anything? Really think levy could agree a deal in a day? This has been going on for week and none of you know a thing.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 15:38:03
I don't see Zaha as a Top 4/ 6 starter . not sure how he would improve us . maybe an injection of pace as a change up for last 20-30 minutes of a game, but beyond that I'm not impressed.

Hope it's not true not really set the world alight in the last few seasons.

James I don't need ssn, the raver is always hanging around Enfield lodge, I'm also cruising around top London hotels seeing players and agents coming and going all the time. Jim white and all the top newspapers have nothing on the raver.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree YC, We need to aim higher now we're in the CL. Surely we have a youngster on the books with the same credentials as Zaha.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Aug 2016 19:20:09
DR- from what little I've seen and read I'd promote Marcus Edwards rather than drop 15m on Zaha. Send a strong message to all our youngsters that the opportunity is there now.

Any news on the outgoings @ spurs.?

Bentaleb.? Chadli.? Mason.?

Believable1 Unbelievable2

25 Aug 2016 18:09:41
Bentaleb has joined schalke 04 on loan with a view to a permanent deal, mason has enjoyed a meal with mike Phelan with a deal to hull looking certain. Nacer chadli will either join Swansea on a permanent traror could join crystal palace on loan with zaha coming to spurs, hows that for information boys the raver is the man in the know.

Heard murmurings of wilfried ndidi? Any truth Ed?

{Ed002's Note - He has been looked at by a number of clubs, including Spurs. But there has not been any discussions with Genk from Spurs.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

24 Aug 2016 08:46:59
Hi Eds,

Do you see Bentaleb leaving this window? Is the price we are asking a stumbling block?

With Mason possibly out to Hull, a central midfielder would be required in my opinion. Tielemans still a target, but do we have any alternatives for this window?

{Ed002's Note - Bentaleb will go. Tielemans is still of interest. I am told by someone very senior in the Arsenal scouting network that he was very surprised to find Spurs to be one of two clubs looking at Hakan Calhanoglu.}

Believable0 Unbelievable1

24 Aug 2016 11:38:31

why is this scout surprised? Calhanoglu is a very good player. Who is the other club and how serious is our interest in him?

{Ed002's Note - The scout is surprised because up to now Spurs has not shown any interest and the price is very high. He has no way to measure "seriousness".}

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Aug 2016 13:39:03
Thanks Ed002.

Really appreciate your views.
Calhanoglu would be a really good capture. Although we are quite much covered for attacking mid positions. But would really be a great addition.

Agree0 Disagree1

24 Aug 2016 19:05:56
Would this mean the Marseille’s Georges-Kevin Nkoudou deal has stalled and therefore looking at other alternatives.?

Agree0 Disagree1

Hull are in talks to sign Ryan Mason.

Yes on media apparently yedlin to Newcastle is doing the rounds as well pal.

22 Aug 2016 10:45:59
Eds, is there any truth that we are in talks with Barcelona to sign Munir? Also how true are the rumours about Yarmelenko?

{Ed002's Note - Barcelona discussed the sale of Munir El Haddadi with Chelsea in late 2014 and were aware of interest from other sides, but his form and a new contract ended thoughts of a move. However, he is frustrated with so little playing time and his agent is pushing for a move - and Barcelona has a replacement in mind and are now open to a sale. Arsenal and Everton both enquired after a loan last summer and several sides will be interested including Spurs, Sevilla and perhaps Arsenal again.

Dynamo Kyiv managed to persuade Yarmolenko not to move this past summer and managed to get him to sign a new contract. There has been interest over the past year from Roma, Spurs, Stoke, Fiorentina, Everton, Inter and Dortmund. Bayer Leverkusen, Valencia, Napoli and Manchester City all dropped their interest and PSG, who were considering Yarmolenko as a possible option to replace Lavezzi this past summer, seem to have done the same. Yarmolenko has expressed a desire to move to Barcelona or Chelsea - and there has been more than one approach made directly to the Chelsea to gauge their interest. Right now I would discount Barcelona but not Milan or possibly Napoli. Whilst an approach was made to the agent of Yarmolenko by Arsenal in the summer, nothing could be done. He spent the summer screwing everyone around and there is still a lingering view he could do the same again. I don't know if anything can be done by Everton, Arsenal or even Barcelona, but Piero Ausilio was at a game to look again at him earlier in the year - so Inter might still be in the mix, but money will be an issue for them unless they can move players on. Again, interest of Dortmund may remain. So for now everything is up in the air - but interest will begin to drop away if he again drags everything out. A representative of Prostar was doing the rounds in Turkey and England during March and April regarding their charges - particularly two other players. I am not aware of anyone raising anything regarding Yarmolenko, but they may have done. Dynamo Kyiv will look to a very significant fee which could easily remove some of the interested clubs who may not see value for money. Milan remains the most likely to start getting embroiled in to what could be a lengthy negotiation.}

Thanks ed002. Sounds like Yarmelenko is more hassle than he's worth.

{Ed002's Note - He is a bunch of grief Dave.}

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Aug 2016 13:39:24
IMO He cannot be that good otherwise bigger clubs woud have takb a chance with him by now.

Think Munir would be a good signing and also think that Nkoudou would be good if the deal every gets done.

Still think we need a player who can open up defences consistantly.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 16:00:47
Mopo wants yarmalenko in the next few days, he would be great at spurs a very good attacking winger.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

21 Aug 2016 16:43:58
He's 26 soon to be 27, old for a MoPo signing, and currently sitting out injured with a lower back problem.

Doesn't sound like a deal Levy will agree to for 18m.

Agree1 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 17:57:14
I've been wanting Yarmo for so long. Hope it happens.

Agree0 Disagree2

19 Aug 2016 11:15:54
Morning Eds,

With MoPo saying that he wants 3 new signing before the window closing, is it safe to assume that 2 of these deals are for Nkoudou and Pau?

If this is correct who is likely to be the 3rd?

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't work like that - Spurs will try there best and are trying to making signing and sales. Pau Lopez should happen and NKoudou is possible but Spurs need to be more humble in terms of how they speak to Marseille's representative and they have to balance that with dealing with the agent of another player as an adult. The club should have learned a couple of massive lessons over their dealing with Marseille this summer.}

Believable1 Unbelievable3

19 Aug 2016 11:56:00
Thanks Ed, From what you are saying the issues with Nkoudou are down to Tottenham?, Is this Levy playing hardball or something/ someone else?

Do we hold are firm interest in other players? by that I mean players that could realistically join before the window closes.

{Ed002's Note - The problems with NKoudou and Njie are in the hands of Spurs. There are a couple of youngsters Spurs are considering.}

Agree2 Disagree2

19 Aug 2016 13:20:45
Thanks Ed.

I have heard that we are in talks with Espanyol over the loan signing of their keeper Lopez.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

Apparently, this is a done deal?

Hugo Lloris Seen in Barcelona this evening.

Could he be on his way to Barcelona?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Aug 2016 00:25:35
Can't blame him if they came a calling with money after selling Claudio Bravo to City.

Closer to home in Nice also.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 08:04:32
They're in for the Ajax keeper though, Lloris won't be going this year.!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Aug 2016 18:03:56
With emphasis on "this year", sad but probably true.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 11:12:57
Hi Eds,

Any update on Tielemans? Is it now between Chelsea and us or is there possibility of him staying in Anderlecht?

Any update on other targets Spurs are looking to bring in this window?

{Ed002's Note - There is nothing new with YT right now. Spurs have screwed up the Georges-Kevin Nkoudou transfer.}

Believable0 Unbelievable6

15 Aug 2016 13:30:57
Thanks for the reply Ed002.
Okay. That seemed to be coming. Not good. We really need a pacy option.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 14:35:58
Ed2 - how or in what way did we screw up the Nkoudou deal?

{Ed002's Note - Putting aside the detail it was screwed up and has caused considerable problems within the club. There has also been an impat on NJie.}

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Aug 2016 20:13:35
Ed2 - do I take it that those considerable problems also equated to the final straw for the likes of Mitchell and MacKenzie, hence the announcement of both resignations on the same day?

{Ed002's Note - Correct.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 21:03:53
Will these problems inhibit Spurs from bringing in another player this window?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 22:40:46
Levyism again.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2016 23:35:47
Thanks Ed2.

Agree0 Disagree2

16 Aug 2016 20:07:11
Thanks very much Eds, I'm kinda relieved its not to do with Levy (as i'm a fan unlike many) . I don't need details but how do you think the considerable problems will affect the club? Is it only in terms of transfers?

{Ed002's Note - The impact was in pissing off Marseille, the agent of one play and two employees who will be gone withing a few weeks.}

Agree0 Disagree2

17 Aug 2016 09:27:37
N'KouDou is rubbish compared to Youri Tielemans, we already have Eriksen, Lamela, Chadli, Alli, Dier, Wanyama, Dembele, Mason, Bentaleb, N'Jie, Carroll, Onomad, Edwards and other youth players on the verge of the squad. Buying average players like N'KouDou will never help us this season, Drinkwater and players like that would be better if we need to pad the squad with dependable players.

Agree1 Disagree0

17 Aug 2016 13:52:30
Oracle - do you therefore expect all those named players to remain, in particular Chadli, Bentaleb, NJie and Carroll? All of whom, if rumors are correct, have been linked with moves away and would need replacements.

Agree1 Disagree1

18 Aug 2016 10:59:03
Yellow-Card I believe we will lose a couple of those quoted, but they are simply ineffective anyway. I was trying to say that it is pointless bringing in average talent as the club looks to cement its place in the Champions League. Tielemans could challenge existing players and get frost team action, none of those linked or quoted above can.

I think it is easy from our armchairs to blame the club and chairman, and it appears Levy is getting too involved, but he has done some great things for our club. N'Koudou looks ok and a gamble probably worth having, but we need big players who can take us up a level.

We could have got Januzaj on loan who is an amazing talent. Phil Jones at 24 brings experience and cover and is clearly surplus to requirement. Mata was possible pre season with a big enough offer, Memphis Depay is now a sidelines player with amazing talent. There are enough options here if we look for proven talent, we just seem reluctant to step up a level.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 12:06:07
Stuff of dreams and nightmares Oracle. Phil Jones is not good enough . Mata would destroy our wage structure, but as I stated on here before, Mourinhos issue with him is apparently his lack of desire to get back when the ball is turned over. In that case MoPo is unlikely to want him. , Depay And Januzaj would be interesting if they fit into wage structure.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Aug 2016 12:56:09
Oracle - on our reluctance to step up a level I agree with you. But, the challenge in a business like football is that spending 50m on someone guarantees nothing and my sense is that Levy is not a risk taker, compounded by the poor return from the "investments" made by the Bale money.

Levy is first a businessman and second a fan our team, and may not even be a true fan just a vested investment partner.
