I don't know why we expect any excitement in transfer windows, it happens every year we always go for second best. We wanted hazard, William we get Chadli, we look at rabiot we get stambouli and vapour It happens over and over again. Transfer day deals, Ryan Nielson, Louis saha, sissoko.
We want the likes of kilnsmann and van der vart?
I'd be happy with dzeko, lallana or Marez and cover at right back.

We often don't findout about players that we have tried to get. Its also incredibly hard to sign players nowadays, greedy players, snake agents and complicated contracts. As fans its frustrating because we see other clubs buying. We also have to free up some space in the squad. We are active that's for sure.

Nasri, Ashley Cole, Van Persie all left your so called 'Big Club' odd bod to win trophies. Sanchez is next and you will be lost without him. Easily mid table last year without his input! At least spurs have a balanced squad with quality throughout. Change is happening at Spurs and we are heading in the direction we want to be whilst your stuck next year raising your banners and flying your planes over the library calling for Wengers head. Fickle fans!

The list is endless clichy, adebayor even henry,
To be fair arsenal were once a good team with great football that could pass there way into the goal, now the only thing arsenal can look forward to is Thursday night football away to Dundalk 😂😂😂😂 and Sunday premier league. Bye bye Sanchez.

Arsenal signings over the last 12 months xhaka, bob holding, eleny and a freebie from Germany hardly world class players. The fact is only Sanchez would get a game at spurs that's why you finished 20 points behind us last season that's right 20 points and 4 places behind your might neighbours.

Ryan, we sold those players as we were funding a new stadium and still finished top 4 and won trophies, that's what big clubs can do and still be successful, it's like spurs selling Kane, Ali, walker (oops) and still win trophies and top 4 finish, could they do that? No chance that's the truth.

21 Jul 2017 22:02:00
Walker was surplus to requirements oddbod! Ready made replacement in trippier so no loss. How ever will you cope without Sanchez. I bet lacazette was signed on the promise of Sanchez staying! He's been sold down the river. I can't wait for the banners and Arsenal fan tv it's comedy gold!

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 00:04:14
No, your missing the point. Arsenal see getting back in the Champions League as more financially beneficial than getting a fee for Sanchez and in my opinion they are right about that, because without him you have no chance and Wenger knows this.

Your reasoning is just as deluded as per normal. You're just going to waiver 50m+ for the sake of it, because you're a 'big club'.

Agree5 0Disagree

22 Jul 2017 09:22:36
Ellis, rubbish, Sanchez was in the team last year and we didn't make the champions league so there goes that theory. yet for years without him we did make it, same things were said when we sold Van Persie, Henry even Adebayor (lol) remember?

22 Jul 2017 09:26:08

Expect a media friendly bid for a decent player. Seems dat we ain't no better than them boys in Islington. Ain't happening. Total season ticket sales tactic. Suck it up. Get the new stadium, stay in top 4 and compete.

My best source tells me that there will be no big names coming in this summer. Potentially one big name leaving but doubtful. Could lose a main guy next season if a certain highly rated youth prospect comes good.

Let's hope Madrid get their own scouting team! Slow summer boys but ain't needed. Team just needs padding to cover injuries and ting. Talent is there. Goals are there. Team is there. Do it all season? Tough call.

Fully agree with you de sacc man, let's tinker with the fans that some big players are coming in then it will be the same old rubbish, we agreed terms with neymar, lemar and Ronaldo but London didn't have a beach etc. I would have more respect if the board was honest and told us no one is coming in.

Can someone translate.
It makes no sense to me that.

I could have told you there will be no big name signings, Although I personally think Barkley will happen. There's been so much talk about this one. Don't listen to the salary bull****

Potential big name leaving - He's already gone - Walker, Dier will stay.

Goals weren't there at Wembley were they.

I am not claiming to be in the know, I do have a friend who works at Tottenham and once in a while she tells me things she has heard floating around the Lane. This latest one is worrying if anywhere near true. Alledgedly MoPo is growing increasingly frustrated with Levy and Lewis reneging on promising for funding and signing, it is claimed that 3 of the 4 players MoPo wants have already signed at different clubs and the last player has no interest in joining. As I say don't know how true, but this would run in line with Levy previous antics with managers and if they is any shred of truth in this, it is extremely worrying.

Ross Barkley, looks very likely to happen with his contract situation and us looking like the only club interested.

I think his natural talents and potential are undoubtable and Pochettino clearly thinks he can mould him into a top player. In Poch I trust.

I'm guessing a lot of you would see Barkley as a terrible signing, so interested to hear your thoughts?

Believable3 4Unbelievable

17 Jul 2017 13:55:46
I think Ross Barkley will be a great signing for spurs, lads I will now try and be more positive about spurs as I've had a bad few weeks with the vodka and marching dust but I've been detoxing and I feel like a brand new man again and my health is getting better. I think we will be the team everyone will fear this season if we can get 2 or 3 quality players in then the title will be ours.

Agree4 1Disagree

18 Jul 2017 10:17:39
Ross got skills but where will he play?
What has he done?
How's his international record? How long has he been around? Can you blame it on Everton? They've sold Lukaku, Fellani for big bucks. Why has he stayed? Why is he now set to depart?
Mr Underwhelming. A signing to appease the fans but not a superstar. Ladies and gents, boys and girls, this is your 'fan appeasement' signing.

Don't believe the price tag in the news. There's a lot of add ons and 'maybes' in that. He's going to take Dele's place? No. Unless Dele isn't staying. Bad business and bad news. People are so desperate for world class English talent that anyone who flashes skill is the new Gazza. How did that work out for Wilshere? Anyone? Buller?

Barkley failed his medical.

Agree3 3Disagree

18 Jul 2017 10:20:29
Barkley is still young and has some real issues around concentration during games. He also lacks the technical fame for tackling and therefore his defensive contribution is weak.

Still young and never looked 100% fit in my opinion, so would definitely benefit from Pochetino's fitness and technical discipline training and guidance.

Dribbling is his forte and he can pass, play clever through balls and find key passes regularly. His shooting ability from range is impressive, and I believe he could give us the extra dimension.

For me his best position is the engine in CM alongside someone like Wanyama he would be fantastic. Much better than Dembele at shooting but much worse at defending, so a very different option. I see Barkley being deployed as a more offensive option for home games, and Dembele perhaps the preferred choice away.

The alternation will give Dembele the cover he desperately needs, and Dier could also join this rotation with Wanyama. With the Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and Premiership, we will need strength in depth. Also don't underestimate the challenge of playing the sameXI like last year on a much bigger pitch. Having to play so many games on a much larger pitch will sap the same group of players.

Barkley could be a fantastic acquisition if we play our transfer negotiations successfully. £25-30m would be a bargain in the current climate for a player like him.

Agree5 4Disagree

Thanks de sacc man I definitely need to check myself as for wrecking myself, I've already done that drinking addict, marching powder addict, and a gambling addict and a spurs addict. You are spot on about any English talent as they are all the next Gascoigne and then they all go missing, but I do think dele Ali will go all the way in his career as one of the English greats for spurs and England.

Agree3 0Disagree

18 Jul 2017 22:59:38
Agreed Raver.
Dele is the real deal. Keeping him is top top priority.
Barkley isn't all that for the money Everton want. I'd rather the money go to a long term deal with insane release clauses for the core of the team.

Agree3 1Disagree

19 Jul 2017 13:52:39

Has there been a 2nd medical? I was informed that the deal 'in principle' was agreed a while ago. It was all tied up with getting maximum cash from Man City without having to delve into da cash pot. Medical, terms etc agreed. Southampton made an enquiry and were told it was a 'done deal'. Fact.

My sources tell me that the player in question is now concerned that he will actually have to leave and won't be getting that new contract at his boyhood club. This gets worse. So. Buying a hype player who has no guaranteed staring position, for well over the odds and really doesn't want to come?

The ifs, buts, whys and when's mean da time is now. Now he's regretting being a baby. Loved to be proven wrong but had dis from 2 many people.

Agree1 2Disagree

21 Jul 2017 09:52:39
All I heard is he failed a medical and now has a reported grion injury. I hope this is a Levy ploy to get a lower price, but it seems bizarre at this stage of the window.

Most Spurs fans were expecting a big window after 7 years of NET neutral transfer dealings. We sold Walker £54m, Bentaleb £16m, N'Jie £6m and Fazio £3m. We have signed a NIKE deal for £150m and just received over £130m from last years rights.

Most fans were expecting us to spend £100m + the mkney from sales of the players above £79m.

Mahrez £40m
Ousame Dembele £50m
Mousa Dembele £45m
Alfie Mawson £30m
Ross Barkley £40m

This is the sort of news people were expecting and we are being linked with Foyth, Suso, Seri and others at fractions of these prices.

I still feel the window will end positively but even those in the know seem to have nothing. Very bizarre things are happening at Spurs!

Agree0 5Disagree

16 Jul 2017 12:01:31
Raver a true fan would never write that type on nonsense. I actually enjoy your posts and normally agree wth most things you write, but please retract your emotional breakdown!

Many true fans remember the days when Spurs were a consistent mid table club, and there were a few years in between when we were mathematically in the relegation zone. In the early 90s we finished 15th twice in three years and were on the brink of disaster. This period followed the FA Cup win in 1990/ 91 which came after another 10 years of mid table mediocrity.

We are building the best stadium in the league, have the most promising squad without a doubt, and run a tight financial ship. The last 10 years have seen Spurs consolidate top 6 to now looking like a worthy top 4 contender. When you consider many of the others are running their clubs unprofitably this is a significant achievement by any measure.

The truth is Joe Lewis is not an Abramovich, Sheikh Mansour or even Glazer. He doesn't pump in £300m into new player acquisitions from his personal fortunes. It would be nice if financial fair play actually worked, because we would have been champions at least 3 times in the last decade if it did. The sad reality is we run a tight ship, and our ability to compete is hindered by others cheating.

Imagine if we had the same dynamic but offered players £300K per week from the billionaires petty cash injection. Suarez, Hazard, Aguero and William were all acquired by this method.

I completely agree it is bloody frustrating to see this continued underinvestment in our players when we are so close to winning something. I completely agree we have been loyal fans and should have some glory to share by now. However be patient because business people tend to have business minds, and I sense Lewis and ENIC are completing the final piece of the jigsaw before selling out.

When we finally sell which I believe will be at the end of this season, we will have a new stadium, amazing team of talented youth and some world class players like Lloris, Alderweireld, Dele and Kane. Then we will see the aggression to go and buy big and bring in some superstars to compliment this setup. A time when Spurs will start being serious about winning things. If you offered £190m for Sanchez and had unlimited funds to pay him £300K a week, what damage would this do to Arsenal? It is those special players that we need to attract and that is impossible until we have a different owner mindset!

16 Jul 2017 14:14:44
I don't agre with most things that the oracle writes but (sadly) he's right! I think with the lsck of investment, Wembley pitch and a thin squad (+ potential injuries) we will be lucky to finish 6th. Almost certainly no cup or CL football for the first year in our new stadium. The only positive is that we are likely (either by transfer dealings or club sale) to be debt free relatively quickly, then hopefully we can become a force.
I doubt (for most of us 50 somethings) we will see success in the next 10 years!
Sadly Nobby.

Ain't happening, Oracle. I've already told you what's up with transfers. It ain't good. Squad building, that's it. Levy is keeping the purse strings tight. New stadium, low debt. Lest we forget what went down just a mike away.

Good news is that Dele and Kane are staying. Spoke with some guys last night and they want to stay. Big my Eric is wavering. Loves it here but Jose keeps calling. We'll see. Anyway, no new signings of note on the horizon. Just the squad guy I told you all about before.

Raver Suso was hardly given a chance at Liverpool and was only a young man when he left. At 23 he has improved significantly and become the potential Liverpool saw in his early career.

DeBruyne and Lukaku were Chelsea players.

Paul Pogba was a Man United player

A young Zlatan Ibrahimovich rejected Arsenal who told him he needed a trial to which he famously replied he doesn't do auditions.

Suso is worth another chance in the Premiership. He is stronger, technically much better and has matured well. At £20m he is hardly a risk is he?

Hi Ed002, Hope you can answer my question but do Spurs have £££ to spend in the transfer market or is it a case of because we are building the stadium it's a sell to raise some funds situation? Thanks.

we have a bare bones squad and that was before Walker £50m, Bentaleb £16m, N'Jie £6m and Fazio £3m were sold.

We have to invest hard and get 4 players as a minimum or next season on a bigger pitch will sap the first XI.

Josh King, Barkley, Perreira and Nawson must be a minimum requirement.

Walker looking like he is gong for £50m and Dier likely at £60m. When you add Bentaleb £16m, N'Jie £6m and Fazio £3m we arrive at £135m.

When you add £60m fro the new Nike sponsorship deal.

The £147.5m fro mourn Premiership and TV Rights, one would expect to see some major signings at Spurs.

Iheanacho, King, Barkley, Zaha and many others all linked, but at this stage little news outside 19yr old Foyth CB from Argentina.

We need 4 big player signatures at CB, RM, CM, RAM and CF.

We know Lamela is returning to fitness and Janssen has looked sharper lately, but they are not ready to support us on 4 fronts.

Spurs fans have waited for this time for decades and now expect the club to push on and sign some stars for the final piece of the jigsaw puzzle.

Iheanacho should be part of the Walker deal + £35m, or perhaps Sterling is a possible swap.

Herrera could be perfect if Man United want Dier so badly, or perhaps Mata is surplus.

One thing is certain the fans expect massive signings and Levy better had deliver this time around.

Believable6 5Unbelievable

13 Jul 2017 18:02:47
Fully agree with you oracle and what a top post, we've just sold walker for 54 million and I can guarantee you we won't see any top quality coming in. Lemar and aubameyang are available for a combined 105 million and that would put us very close to winning the league with those 2 but levy isn't interested in top players only cheap and nasty that won't improve Tottenham.

Agree3 2Disagree

13 Jul 2017 18:48:30
Hang on Oracle, there's still a stadium to pay for and as Poch said, we'll only sell those we want to sell. Sad that Walker's going, but he is replaceable. Dier isn't going anywhere.

As for players coming in, a replacement rb is obvious now and apart from a winger, what starting position is a desperate fill?

It's about depth and development. Let's give them some time on this. We got some good signings last year and with 1-2 solid (not necessarily incredible) signings we'll be hundreds.

It was Talk sport but they had a journalist on earlier and his ITK was the club will not spend more than £45,000,000 on one player and his wages will have to be a maximum of £70,000 a week. Star players will not be arriving and only squad players are being looked at as with those numbers you cannot improve the first eleven. Take from that what you will, but would you bet against it? Probably just end up being Barkley on transfer deadline day.

The complaints are ridiculous. The season is still a month away, and we don't need to spend ridiculous amounts of cash to improve the squad. I'd rather we spent any supposed transfer bonanza on keeping the squad together, anyway, we should give the likes of Onomah, Edwards, KWP, CCV, Winks every chance to become the squad depth tat we're clamouring to buy. If we can pick up some quality that Poch believes in along the way (Meyer? ) great, if not, we'll go again with what we had last year, and I expect us to have another great season, with or without the whinging from the support.

And you do have a stadium to pay for but in the world of crazy prices I don't expect you to go through the same hassle as we did. Walker 50 million all day long and if you get good money for that plank dier I'd sell. Poch will replace them with better for half the price.

You want Aubameyang? Fine, Son and Alli will get less game time. Great. He'll also shatter the wage structure, and you can forget about Keziah Stirling getting any football.

You want Lemar? Same situation. You want Herrera? Fine, Harry Winks is going to love that.

We don't need marquee signings. We need depth and youth.

Dier and son are bang average, and Eriksson goes missing in half the games he plays in. As for the youngsters none of them excite me and most of them will be playing for a crap premier league club or a championship club in the near future.

Dier isn't going. What we've done is sell our weakest link in the team. We're selling a player for £50m who lost his place to a player city gave to Burnley for free!

Totally disagree with you there Raver.

Son is direct, pacey, skillful and can finish. He can play on either flank, number 10 or up front in a deeper lying role. He also doesn't demand to play week in, week out. Any club in Europe would have him.

Dier has a lot of potential - I've already said that if we took 60 mil for him I'd be fine with that, but he clearly isn't bang average. His role on a pitch is rarely going to see him win MOTM awards or have much in the way of a highlight reel but he's a classic example of a player who enables other players to flourish.

As for Eriksen, we'd have been 23 goals worse off last season without him. He's still only 25 years old, his best football is ahead of him.

As for the youth, if Winks, Onomah, Edwards, and Walker Peters to name but 4 don't excite you, then why are you following Spurs, or football at all? They're young skillful energetic players - how have they already disappointed you?!

T-T-I-D I honestly cannot believe you want to cite the stadium as the main reason for a lack of investment. We were the bottom club over the previous 5 years in NET player transfers. Behind, Bournemouth, Swansea, Hull let alone the bigger clubs.

We have a genius manager in Pochetino and we need to get a grip and buy players who can improve us.

Lloris, Alderwiereld, Vertonghen, Wanyama, Dele and Kane are the backbone. Rose returning will add some flair on the left, and Eriksen looks world class most of the time, but all the other positions need to be strengthened.

Lemar, Dembele, Isco, Joshua King and Alfie Mawson would do me. This would free up some of our first XI and provide the opportunity to rest players knowing we have strong replacements.

CCV, Winks, Onomah, Edwards and a few other need to go one loan to clubs that have come up. We are in the Champions League and pushing to win the Premiership. As such we cannot afford to put inexperienced players in the way of success.

Lastly having banked the last 6 years fortunes, signed a £150m over 5 years Nike deal and still have the stadium banking rights to come, I think the stadium is nicely covered from all angles.

Arsenal fans can gloat all they like, Lacazette is a great signing and Lemar would be even better. The problem is Cazorla is finished, Sanchez is leaving and the core of the squad are made up of average to poor players.

I am a massive Levy fan for taking us this far. It is time to spend and win something roe sell our beloved club to a multi billionaire who is prepared to bring the glory back to Tottenham Hotspur's.

I see The Oracle's reading skills are no better than his prediction skills. I didn't mention the stadium once in my post. What I said was, trust in Levy, trust in Poch, and have faith that they know what they're doing. Trust in the kids, if that's who we have, and most importantly, get behind the team.
