Just read Soumaré from Lille is close to joining Leicester. He would be prefect for us.

Big signing for them, their recruitment is superb, a lot of that will hinge on them having CL next season, he'll be a well sought after player.

We were lucky enough to be able to get a player like ndombele. Soumare would come to us and we'd manage to make him look half as good.

Even Thursday night European football gives layers, especially younger ones valuable experience, not gonna win the league next year so try and enjoy the Europa as well as make improvements in the league

The only thing that gives me hope is that there are lots of very average Prem teams around. There is a reason Leicester and West Ham are in or around top four, it is because the league is much of a muchness.

Gotta be honest Phenom Ndombele has produced some great performances this season but he blows so much hot and cold. I honestly think we got robbed the money he cost us.

Honestly don’t care if any of them leave in the summer and I include Kane in that.

I do agree, but for two things.
1. We will continue to lose important games. That will always preclude us from winning a cup, so why go in it ?
2. Finnish 7th and we become first English team to go into this third tier conference thing. Spurs get the pi** taken out of them by all and sundry as it is. Imagine the grief we will get for being in that. Can hear it now "Can't even win a Micky mouse cup" or "it's only a third rate non event competition, if by some miracle we actually won it.

To be honest Steve, Spurs have not had any European football for a few weeks now, but they still continue to lose games. I think that`s an excuse. Other teams seem to be able to play Prem and Europa. I would sooner Spurs in that than no European football.

Things to get use to as a spurs fan.

1, Rival fans laughing at you.

2,You get a new manager every few years.

3, every transfer window Sky Sports do there best to sell your best players.

4, Enic driving you crazy when they pull out of a deal over £2.50.

5, we never turn up at the must win games.

6,Spursanitus

7,Anouncing new players when they sign.

8, The frustration that you can't punch Daniel Levy.

I genuinely don’t understand Spurs. Levy puts financial restraints on the first team in terms of spending (and wages), displaying a keen intent to make sure the books are balanced, yet takes out a long term finance deal to build a fantastic stadium, while effectively creating a squad that aren’t good enough to play in it.

He then hires very good managers who have either a proven track record, or indeed do very well and prove themselves at Spurs, but then at the first sign of trouble Levy sacks them off. This was especially the case in regards to Poch.

Spurs are a big club, yet they have owners who only act big time off the field. When it comes to on the field - THE primary and most important aspect of being a football club, the owners come across as incredibly inept.

That it has been 60 years since Spurs won the last of their two league titles is intriguing. Spurs are not a proven league winning team. They are a cup team - where they have enjoyed much more success.

To be honest, I don’t even think the owners know what Spurs are about or indeed capable of. At best a top four club - at best. Either the owners have ideas above their station (which, given the reasons why they have sacked managers, seems probable), or they are not ambitious enough (which makes a mockery of the reasons why they have sacked managers).

OP wants to hurt Levy financially and at the same time have him spend more money on quality players.
Sounds like quite a plan

posted on 8/5/21

Out:
Sissoko
Winks
Aurier
Dier
Sanchez
Lamela
Doherty



Maybe also out:
Ndombele
Lo celso

Back from loan for manager to assess:
Foyth
Skipp
Sessegnon
Parrot


I literally would go for about 10 out 10 in this summer. Next season our team may be disjointed, but we currently have a disjointed load of rubbish on the pitch anyway

Is your name a typo? Should the Y be a T?

Sick of ENIC
Sick of Lewis
Sick of Levy

And

Sick of Dier
Sick of Sissoko
Sick of Aurier
Sick of Winks
Sick of Hojberg
Sick of Doherty
Sick of Sanchez

These 7 players can follow Levy and Lewis out of the door.

It's called running a club when you dont have a billionaire sugar daddy.

Levy runs a tight ship at Spurs and he has done amazingly to get us from mediocre to the fringes of the elite teams.

His biggest flaw in my opinion is that he is risk adverse. He is not really willing to speculate to accumulate. The bigs purchases we have made over time had normally been funded buy big sales. Since the stadium opened we have spent £230m which is massive for us, but you can see why he doesnt wish to take too many chances because you spend £50m on Ndombele and dont get much return, you spend £35m on Lo Celso and he underwhelms. That's £80-90m that has not moved us on much.

The stadium was essential. WHL was home but it was old. New WHL has added debt but massively increased revenue.

The classic Spurs thing is though that our stadium has been in the pipeline for years, when it finally comes to pass it comes at a time when we had a great manager and excellent young, hungry group of players, but it put the handbrake on our spending and all the momentum we gained under Poch was lost.

As a City fan you will not understand the constraints of operating to a budget. In your growth phase you had a season where you made £200m losses and spent more on wages than your entire revenue. Levy will never sanction that and nor would most CEOs.
