Bryan Gil

Following on from The Beast article yesterday for all the doubters out there it's confirmed.


Tottenham have fully agreed a swap-plus-cash deal with Sevilla for winger Bryan Gil, with Erik Lamela going the other way after completing his medical in Spain.

Spurs will also pay Sevilla £21.6m for Gil, according to Sky in Italy.

Gil, who is a friend of Spurs left-back Sergio Reguilon, is part of Spain's squad at the Tokyo Olympics.

Whether he takes time or not, he's clearly a significant upgrade on Lamela on the basis he's young and developing. We know Lamela won't get any better than he already is. He's a squad player with a useful engine and the very, very occasional bit of class. Gil seems to excite a lot of pundits. It's the same sort of optimism we saw when we first signed Lamela in 2013. Hopefully he ends up a much better player. It's always a gamble, but one worth taking at that price.

Fridgeboy, I think this Gil will get in the 1st team and will get lots of game time. You don’t pay 25 mil for a youngster plus a player, to then just shove him in the Conference cup. He will hopefully cement his spot in the team.

Don't know much about this guy but I'm pleased we've brought the average age down by bringing in this young and supposedly talented player while getting rid of Lamela.

Thanks for the rabonas Lamela.

Yes going in the right direction Spurtle …. So far. That can all change if we don’t get this defence sorted mate. We need that Romero to get sorted and the Japanese lad, then we are talking. A striker back up for Kane in Danny Ings, then are looking strong. They need this defence sorted though.

Don, I think the defence won't be as bad as is made out, even if we don't get everything we want done. I'm expecting better from Doherty this season. Reguilon should become better. Rodon will have more game time. Skipp should feature and that will improve the backline behind him.

We do need another defender though which we will almost certainly get. If we still end up with Sanchez and Dier as our main options next season I'll be amazed.

The longer this Romero takes, the more chance it gets Levynated. That’s my worry mate. My worry is we go for some 2nd rate defender after falling too get Romero over the line aka Skriniar

Skriniar is hardly 2nd rate mate, it wasn't long ago that he was being rated by some of our fans like Romero is now.

Not sure you understand what I’m saying mate. I’m
Not saying Skriniar is 2nd rate. I’m saying we missed out Skriniar and bought Rodon, who lets be honest at the moment is a promising player and that’s it. I’m saying Romero has all the hallmarks of another Skriniar disappointment. I wanted Skriniar and we should of bought him with Rodon. Instead we went for the cheapo option like always. Then we wonder why we never win trophies ?

Ah I get it now, it would be nice to get our signings done early to at least allow time for them to have a pre season of sorts rather then waiting weeks for them to adjust etc.
