Bruxie’s Solution

Thinking outside the box.
Barca have been touting the sale of Malcom in order to free up funds and places for a stellar signing to their squad, as well as making little effort to comply with FFP rules.
Now if I was chairman of a team in competition with Barca, I wouldn’t make a bid for Malcom.
RM & Barca spread discontent around the footy world by using the press to drum up rumours that they are interested in every player who fulfils their “star rating”.
This creates instability and discontent within clubs further down the food chain.
Manure still attempt to do the same and PSG are new to the game. Citeh & Liverpool do the same to a lesser extent.
Doesn’t it make sense for every team to NOT buy anyone from any of those clubs. Let them stew with these “not needed” players in their reserves whilst being paid and not playing. They wouldn’t then have enough room in their squads to buy anyone’s top players or indeed wage a rumour campaign through the press. Chelsea just hijack other’s deals with bigger wage offerings.
Creating a situation whereby top players from other clubs think twice before joining any of the above is that simple…provided nobody buys any of their existing players.
A simplistic view I admit.

But it would be the rest of football railing against the money laden FFP cheats and more a more effective strategy than EUFA could ever implement.

There are counter arguments, of course.
Clubs who would like one or two of the supposed super clubs’ players who stagnate in their reserves, will be more than tempted to buy such players to improve their own lot. Understandable, but by doing so they free up space in the top clubs’ squads and the whole cycle starts again!
Rumour – discontent – sale…rumour – discontent – sale. A merry-go-round. That’s how you stay at the top of the food chain.
Also, how on earth do you implement such a strategy between competitors in the less cash rich strata of football?
You can only do it by contacting your fellow chairmen and making an unofficial agreement to implement said strategy and to promise not to do unto others as you wouldn’t have done to yourself.
Southampton would be a case in question. Liverpool raped them of all their good players and Tottenham took their manager.
I doubt though, that Southampton were subjected to the same level of press manipulation that Barca and Real Madrid employ today. My conscience is clear on that one!
Wouldn’t such a strategy be against restriction of trade rules? The answer lies in whether or not the use of the press to further their own ends is a valid form of industrial espionage…if there is such a thing.
Are Tottenham innocent in all of this?
I can remember Richard Gough playing for us for one season. He then moved to Glasgow Rangers to whom Dundee Utd, his former team, would not sell. I always suspected that we played some part in facilitating a move which Dundee Utd would never have agreed to. We got a very good player for one season.
Do we use ulterior methods of recruitment?
I don’t know. If we do, then most of the rumours and links to players don’t work!
All the above is of course pie in the sky and the only alternative that I can think of to the wishy-washy FFP rules and even weaker policing of the clubs who ride roughshod through our favourite sport for personal kudos and fantasy football ambitions.

    I’m sure Ive read this before somewhere…

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 4:57 pm

      Ha!

      I’m confused too!

      • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 5:00 pm

        It’s that bloody r’Andy again, passing someone elses work off as his own..

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 4:59 pm

    Third times a charm, now I agree with it!

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:04 pm

      You’re a good man!

      • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 5:12 pm

        I don’t! The supposed big clubs would simply find a way protect their status and financial dominance, probably by breaking away and forming the long threatened European super league, where they wouldn’t be bound by current FFP regulations.

        • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 5:17 pm

          A bit like the banks that are too big to fail. They play by their own rules.

        • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 5:21 pm

          That would worry me greatly as I want us to have a place at the top table, and sadly we wouldn’t be invited to join. That said, I am opposed to the ESL concept.

        • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:24 pm

          Let them.

          Nobody other than the “top two or five” would entertain such a thought. They’d be in a Status Quo.

          • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 5:30 pm

            That depends on how committed the rest of the football world would be if it should ever happen. For me that would have to mean complete exile from all existing football bodies, domestic leagues, UEFA and FIFA.

            • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:39 pm

              TV rights.

              That will be the decider.

              Who would go to the games?

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 5:09 pm

    Much as I would love something like this to work I just don’t see it ever getting offf the ground.
    First who are the second tier clubs like us that would band together to agree not to buy players from RM, Barca City PSG Chelsea and MU (maybe add Juve and B Munich to that list)? The list of boycotted would have to include all the other PL clubs mst of the German and Italian first tier and new upstarts like Chinese leagues.
    Second any boycot like we are talking about would probably. Be illegal and be considered collusion .
    Finally how would e react if we say turned down the chance to acquire Malcom or N’Dombele or similar and then Leicester or Watford swooped in and got a bargain?
    I think the insidious part is the taping up and the authorities really need to make that stop.

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:14 pm

      We buy one of their reserves and they’ll buy a star.
      Guaranteed.

      The second string clubs don’t use the press like those I mention and are not as cash rich. They haven’t got the power of the media on their side.

      • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 5:16 pm

        The press part is the biggest problem. All the taping up.
        Every now and then the authorities hand out a transfer ban but almost always rescind it.

    • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 5:14 pm

      Boycotted should be boycotting

  • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 5:10 pm

    I was heartened by Poch’s words as reported in the last bleoug. Momentarily, I thought the clarification might have been a bit of back-tracking over his ‘cup + ego’ comments in case it upset the ManUre board, but he did sound as if he’s planning to stick with us for the forseeable future. I just hope he’s not feeling too much pressure right now.

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 5:23 pm

      To reiterate our manager’s luverly passionate words.

      “I love my job, I love my job. And of course I love a big challenge,” he said.

      “I am a very positive person and I am going to try and deliver in my job. I am going to going to stick with the club until the end to help the club achieve all they want.

      “When I arrived at Tottenham I knew very well the challenge will be tough and what happen now will happen now.

      “We are victims of our own success, the club was in a different level. No one believed in us, no one believed the way we operated from beginning will bring success to club.”

      Three top four finishes is total validation of Pochettino. Or Valentino, as Spursy knows him. 😉

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:32 pm

      In view of all of the press nonsense…I love all of that.

      But it’s not a solution to the underlying problem of press hiking by the “bigger clubs”.

  • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:27 pm

    Off message Chauve.

    Give the blog a chance!

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 5:31 pm

      Question. Is Pochettino the best looking manager in the Premier League?

      Let’s face it, he’s a hunk.

      • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:33 pm

        Ok.
        Agreed.😍

        • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 5:35 pm

    I want some ATC monitor speakers. Just sayin..

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:36 pm

      You are ill.

      Bugger off to bed.

      • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 5:37 pm

        I’d sleep much better knowing I had a pair of ATC’s. 😘

        • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 5:41 pm

          Don’t they start at several thousand quid for entry level?

          • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 5:43 pm

            £1500 to many many faahsands of paahnds to be exact.
            They are the best speakers I’ve ever heard though.

      • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 5:39 pm

        Bruxie, your idea just won’t work. It’s naively idealistic in a football world driven by baser motives.

        • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:40 pm

          I did say that it was pie in the sky.

          I didn’t put it up there!

          • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 5:42 pm

            Oops, sorry! I thought it was part of your manifesto.

      ATC? Colin? Help required to understand some of the recent posts.

      • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 5:44 pm

        ATC are Acoustic Engineers speakers, top of the range.

        ‘Colin’ is a reference to Neil Warnock. His name rearranges to spell C o l i n W a n k e r.

        • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 5:50 pm

          How many more times Chauve?

          These people just live in a world without insult!

          I remember being at QPR and Colin got so much abuse. Sad really…but he’s thick skinned.
          Feel sorry for his loss, though.

        • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 5:54 pm

          Thanks, Chauv! FYI, I attended a business meeting once at Sheffield United’s ground, during which ‘Colin’ strolled blithely (or was it imperiously?) through the room in his training shirt and shorts without any acknowledgment of the disruption he was causing to our important business. Just sayin!

          FYI = For Your Information. I’m sure you know that, but I don’t want to be accused of using TLAs inconsiderately.

          • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 6:04 pm

            What does the Three Letter Acronym TLA stand for? 🤣

    • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 6:49 pm

      If he does go to Germany I hope it’s on a loan deal as there is a very good footballer in there just waiting to be brought out.

      • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 7:15 pm

        But not by Steve Bruce…

  • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 7:02 pm

    Why is Poch now “not optimistic” about any signings, anyone?

    • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 7:13 pm

      My guess would be because it doesn’t look like we’re about to offload anyone this window and we can’t bring anyone (non-homegrown) in until that happens. And even if we were to get rid of the likes of N’Koudou &/or Janssen it wouldn’t make the slightest bit of difference to our CL prospects as neither are registered to play in that competition.

      Which is why talk of Rabiot &/or Tielemans is little more than a pipe dream at the moment.

      The club have f*cked up big time with our overseas contingent … I just hope it doesn’t come back to haunt us in the run in.

      • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 7:17 pm

        Just drop Vorm for Whiteman. I can’t see it would be a loss.

        • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 7:24 pm

          And if Lloris should become suspended (say) and Gazzaniga picks up an injury, what then? There’s not a club in the competition that won’t name three goalkeepers in their squad. Not having one of those three as a homegrown player is another area where the club have been remiss.

          • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 7:34 pm

            * three experienced goalkeepers

          • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 8:29 pm

            Whiteman should play. Vorm is yesterday’s man.

            But what if he gets injured? What if, what if, what if.

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 7:17 pm

        Does the sale of Dembele not free up a spot? I know it would be filled with Foyth potentially.

        • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 7:22 pm

          As I understand it that spot has already been allocated to Foyth … which means we still need to get rid of someone else (neither N’Koudou nor Janssen) before we can even think of recruiting another overseas player.

          It’s this ridiculous “neither Davies nor Dier are homegrown” rule which is severely hamstringing (?) us.

          • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 8:32 pm

            I hope Wanyama is fit. If he takes a CL spot then relapses, as I suspect may happen (I think he’s crocked) well, I’d rather buy Tielemans and give him Vic’s place.

    • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 7:14 pm

      Can we be sure he was ever optimistic to begin with?

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 7:18 pm

        Realistically, who can say?

  • Superspoz 🏆 29/01/2019 at 7:18 pm

    I have one working Jamo speaker if anyone is interested. It’s well compact, about the size of a washing machine.

    • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 7:26 pm

      You need to work on your sales technique, it sounded like you said ‘one Jamo speaker’…

      • Superspoz 🏆 29/01/2019 at 7:27 pm

        One “working” Jamo, I will listen to offers for it’s non working partner.

  • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 7:18 pm

    This Carlos Soler, I’d never heard of him before. Anyone think he’d be Dembele’s upgrade?

    • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 7:21 pm

      Nope, I still believe my message will be well received.

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 7:50 pm

    I hope Colin has a very good evening

    • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 7:55 pm

      • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 8:18 pm

        It was a really nice touch to include Sala in the Cardiff squad on the back of tonight’s matchday programme, with a daffodil where his squad number would have been.

        • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 29/01/2019 at 8:22 pm

          I saw that. Well done to the Gooners for that.

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 8:37 pm

    The problem with the cL squad restrictions is more psychological than anything. We could be out after two games. We would be delighted if we play four and amazed if we play six and can’t have more than seven.
    However who wants the ignominy of being the guy left out of that squad.

  • Northern Spur 29/01/2019 at 8:58 pm

    Klopp saying good things about Spurs on the wireless today, especially noting the number of injuries we’ve suffered. I’d much rather Liverpool finishing ahead of City this season.

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 9:06 pm

      He was covering his own arse, as Klopp hasn’t delivered silverware yet either.
      Fack Liverpool, if they win the title it’d heap more pressure on Poch. City are gonna win stuff because they cheat the financial regulations, let them win because it means nothing as they are fake news.

    So Lesta finally do US a favour and we despatch the pretend Norf Londoners and we only need to beat the Dippers and Citeh and everyone else to win the title (apart from goal difference).

    • SeattleSpursGuy 29/01/2019 at 9:50 pm

      All the goals we’ll score should take care of that.

    What odds were there on a Newcastle win after going one down after 20 seconds?

  • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 9:56 pm

    I suppose Goatboy can at least have a thin blanket, seeing as uni💩 dropped 2 points.

  • Goatboy333 29/01/2019 at 9:56 pm

    I know. I had that down as a 3 or 4 niller. But then I’m real good at predictions me. Anyone need any betting tips, just let me know.

    Chin up chaps. We win and Liverpool lose tomorrow night, the double’s back on!

  • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 9:59 pm

    On a more serious note I started buying a homeless bloke called Tony breakfast regularly before Christmas and staying to chat whilst we ate together. Initially, he was all about how it was his choice and he liked the freedom etc. He’d been sleeping in the same spot for 2 years and on the streets for 5. After a few meets he said he’d begun to ask himself what the fuck he was doing. Then he said his care worker had offered him a B&B for 2 weeks, and maybe longer. I went by after Christmas and his doorstep was empty. I was really happy. Week after that, someone else had moved in there. One of the biggest failures of society, homelessness.

    • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:02 pm

      Well done you. You helped one guy move on.

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:07 pm

        He was a pleasure to chat with. I genuinely got more out of it than he did. Got him some hand warmers and some Gore-Tex gear and he was so chuffed.

    • Goatboy333 29/01/2019 at 10:05 pm

      Nice work Flaty. I’d be lying if I always gave something every time I see a homeless person. Can never find a good enough reason on the occasions I don’t.

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:07 pm

        I’m hit and miss myself.

    • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 10:05 pm

      Nice one Flatty, sadly the cause of homelessness can be varied and complicated, goes to show how important social care is.

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 10:06 pm

      Good man.

      • AntSpurs 29/01/2019 at 10:12 pm

        Beautiful Flatty, small gestures make such a difference, I spent some time doing similar and the way those who are homeless, treated in many cases is horrific. Robbed ,abused ,pissed on ffs. As if it wasn’t hard enough . No one should have to through that. Good on yer bro.

    • Spursy 29/01/2019 at 10:11 pm

      I help at a homeless shelter near me each winter. Chatting to homeless people has revealed so much. One guy had just been chucked out of his rented place because he was behind with his rent. He was in shock. Another’s home had burnt down. Another had broken up with someone. Another had their lease up. There are stories behind each person. I get my son to come and help set the dinner things up so that he understands the issues involved.
      PS Btw, Flat Oeuf, were you at WHL at the Swansea match?

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:14 pm

        That’s a great bit of service to the community, Spursy.

        Re Swansea, I can’t remember….anyone….was I??

    Massive problem over here FO.

    • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:06 pm

      So often related to mental illnesses or substance abuse and no good options provided by the state.

    • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:08 pm

      Saw it in LA, it was huge. I’m sure it is everywhere.

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:28 pm

      About six years ago (so not laid at Trump’s door) saw a documentary about families encamped under freeways in Detroit. Ex car workers mainly, hundreds of them. Tragic how it’s gone so badly in motor city.

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:09 pm

    I live on the outskirts of the city with most homelessness in the USA.
    We have the issue for a few reasons but mainly because homeless folks gravitate here because we have lots of churches that help them and our weather is mild in the winter.
    Sadly it causes all kinds of problems for local businesses and residents.
    It’s a difficult problem to solve.

    • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:12 pm

      Agreed, but in the end it’s really about allocating resources. If the will was there…

    • Elyid 29/01/2019 at 10:16 pm

      A lot of ex forces guys end up homeless, adjusting is not easy

  • SeattleSpursGuy 29/01/2019 at 10:10 pm

    Man City twitter hating on Kyle Walker right now. I’d have him back.

    • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:11 pm

    • Bruxie 29/01/2019 at 10:16 pm

      Don’t let them free up space!

      • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 10:45 pm

        They wouldn’t sell he’s one of their few home grown players.

    • UnkleTaff 29/01/2019 at 11:06 pm

      F*ck him. He’s made his bed … let him rot in it.

  • Elyid 29/01/2019 at 10:13 pm

    It’s a funny old game, all that money spent and they come undone

  • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:14 pm

    Does the city result count as choking?

  • Goatboy333 29/01/2019 at 10:15 pm

    Wasn’t sorry to see him go to be honest. Always amazed me that Pep went for him as I was under the impression he liked players with good footballing brains.
    Just a shame we didn’t use the money more wisely than spending it on Aurier.

  • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:29 pm

    If we can get through Watford, then Leicester. We’ve got a full week to get some more back from injury or fully fit.

    As Taff said before, I’m surprised we’ve allowed ourselves to drift to a point where we’ve got so much deadwood clogging up the squad. Quite how Daniel thinks he’s going to turn a profit on Janssen or N’Koudou, I’ll never know. What with Dembele and Wanyama being crocked, it’s been tough. We really could have done with a boost this window, even if it takes a player 6 fackky months to be ‘Poch ready’.

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:33 pm

      But it should mean players bought in January are integrated by next season.
      One good reason to buy now rather than the last day of the summer window.

    • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:34 pm

      The CL squad isn’t clogged up by deadwood like GKN and Jansen as they are not in it
      To be fair I think we have less deadwood now than we have had in years gone by.
      In terms of GKN it is clear from Pochettino’s book that he wants a fast winger on the bench as a plan B. GKN was bought with that in mind but hasn’t cut the mustard.
      After lots of debate about who to take out of the CL squad to bring in another overseas player the consensus (excluding Taff) seems to be Vorm. One year ago that was unthinkable.

      • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:36 pm

        GKN showed he can’t cross without stopping, cutting back onto his right foot. That just gives defenders time to tackle. Get a left footed winger on the left for Pete’s sake.

        • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:36 pm

          Or play him on the right?

          • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:38 pm

            You’d think. Has Poch ever tried him there?

            • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:40 pm

              He swapped flanks a couple of times in the last game but generally is on the left
              He gave the PSG right back a terrible time resulting in him getting a yellow card.
              He got crosses in but they were easily cleared which was frustrating to watch

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:38 pm

        It’s not for the CL squad. If Poch likes having a relatively small squad there’s little room for error when the injuries start piling up.

        • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:41 pm

          Small only works if all squad members are high quality, with no passengers.
          Small, but perfectly formed, as they say.

          • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:44 pm

            Precisement.

    • SeattleSpursGuy 29/01/2019 at 10:37 pm

      This has been my main annoyance with Levy: the selling rather than the buying. If a player doesn’t work out, get rid.

      • Shelfy 29/01/2019 at 10:38 pm

        Yes. Get them out quick

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:40 pm

        Yup, I can understand being a conservative buyer but you can’t be a total tight-ass seller too without harming the squad.

  • Sexy Beast 29/01/2019 at 10:31 pm

    What

    Flat Oeuf
    He was a pleasure to chat with. I genuinely got more out of it than he did. Got him some hand warmers and some Gore-Tex gear and he was so chuffed.

    What a lovely thing to do, but it doesn’t surprise me that you would do something like that.
    Top geezer you are but I knew that about you very quickly.

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:33 pm

      Get a room…

      • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:34 pm

        For a homeless person.

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:34 pm

      Doesn’t look likely. Although Real Betis are sniffing around Janssen apparently.

      • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:43 pm

        There are some loan deals to be done out there.

        • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:43 pm

        • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 10:54 pm

          I don’t think we should waste money on stop gap players because of injuries, we should aim to get the quality that we need to compete at the top.

          • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 11:05 pm

            +1

          • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 11:24 pm

            What’s the harm in a little Ibrahimovic cameo for 8 weeks?

            • Caspurs 29/01/2019 at 11:28 pm

              I see your point, and yes a very short term deal or loan is different, I would just be wary of making long term signings for the wrong reasons tizzall.

              • Flat Oeuf 30/01/2019 at 12:48 am

                I agree of course

    • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:42 pm

      Nope. Rabiot not interested apparently, rumours of Soler, Tielemans, and some German I’ve forgotten.

              • Chauvelin 30/01/2019 at 12:16 am

                They still sell that stuff?

      • Sexy Beast 29/01/2019 at 10:45 pm

        Rabiot has a fat contract waiting for him in six months.

        • Chauvelin 29/01/2019 at 10:47 pm

          Most likely.

          How like our own dear Sol.

        • Flat Oeuf 29/01/2019 at 10:47 pm

          Wouldn’t be surprised if Citeh don’t go in for him.

        • Chauvelin 30/01/2019 at 10:33 am

    • Chauvelin 30/01/2019 at 12:27 pm

      That would be poor. I hope it’s not true. The players could do with as many fans giving their wholehearted backing as possible.

    • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 12:28 pm

      Poch talking yesterday:
      ” Then you can see for our fans at Wembley every week that things are going down and down and down because people are disappointed with the situation.
      And of course, that affects the team and everybody. That is why it is my responsibility to be positive and optimistic. My job is to call to the fans to give the last push that we need. The club needs the help of the fans because they are the core and the soul of the club and this is a massive moment.
      “I know I can’t ask for more, but all together we need the last push to finish in the top four or maybe be a real contender. Then, playing in the Champions League is an exciting moment for the club.”

      • Ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 12:42 pm

        What does ‘but all together we need the last push to finish in the top four’ mean?
        Who is the ‘all together’? Is it the hobbled players along with some fit ones? The negative fans with the positive ones?
        How many games have we been impressive in this season? I mean our fight was there,we often came back to snatch games,but have we really played well this season? Yes on several occasions we did but often we didn’t. This is the reality for me….and now what?
        Is this the last ditch effort to cop the CL money? Is Poch on a piece of this?
        Its one thing to buy success.To go out there with oil money and spend till you win. Its quite another to not buy anybody despite being light in positions in favour of some iffy science.

      What would really help is for some demos against Levy as suggested on another blog. Nothing quite so futile like that for getting your team performing at its best.

      • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 12:36 pm

        Yeah! Everyone should rustle their crisp packets LOUDLY at a set time during the game.

  • Ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 1:06 pm

    ‘Pertinently, the report reveals that Tottenham directors wanted to sanction a loan deal with an option to buy clause but Pochettino wasn’t convinced by Tielemans, paving the way for Leicester to clinch his signature’ -Transfer Tavern

    I don’t no Tielemans about Tielemans and don’t even know if this is true or not. Who is Poch convinced by? Not too many creative players I think. That’s why we don’t have a lot of them…oh maybe one…..

    Our backs are from from great but we have a horde of them,CB’s by the dozen…but creative players very minimal. In a game unless we’ve stolen the ball back and space is available we have a hard time moving the ball up quickly we lack players to create it

    • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 1:10 pm

      If true, I’d imagine he’s unconvinced by what he’s seen.

      • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 1:16 pm

        One assist in 20 league games, average of one key pass per game, in a shite league where his team sits bottom. Doesn’t seem all that creative on this seasons performances.
        We have to trust the managers/clubs decisions on transfers. Well, we don’t have to of course, but I do. We’d only slate both the club and the manager if he turned out no better than George Kev. Well, some would.

        • Ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 1:19 pm

          I don’t know Tielemans but its not about that so much its about going to players that are creative.I live in hope we will do better in that area as I think its the key ingredient we are missing. You are right we are not experts.Poch is.

      • Ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 1:17 pm

        But who is he convinced by in the creative sense?

        Dele is talented,Lamela occasionally can be.Throw in Moura. Son.
        DM;s we can talk Dier,Wanyama etc….I don’t find any of these players creative.
        For me Winks hasnt show enough in that department yet. Not sure he will.
        The Wing backs.How creative are they?

        Our slow build ups link directly to this

        • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 1:23 pm

          That’s a hard mix, being creative and having the ability to perform as a team player. Not many around that aren’t already at top clubs.
          I can’t say who Poch is or isn’t convinced by, but I can’t name any players that have been bought by teams not in the top 6 that I think would be good enough to play for us, to make a difference to what we already have.
          I’ve no doubt he wants creative players as much as you do, though in Eriksen, Son and Dele we already have some of the best in the league.

          • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:25 pm

            Son is creative?
            Deles fancy footwork is creative. I rarely see him open up a defence. I see him get into open positions and score near the goal,thats creative but….

            • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 1:28 pm

              If you don’t think Son is creative, then I’m not sure we have the same definition of creative!

              • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:38 pm

                We cant have. he is torally not creative by any standards. His shooting? His dribbling? what else does he do?

                • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 1:53 pm

                  I don’t get it. Dele’s fancy footwork is creative, but Son’s isn’t?
                  For me, a creative player creates goals or goalscoring chances. Whether that’s via passing/crossing, dribbling past a player, using speed to get into good positions, or via great movement allowing others space. He ticks every box for me. He doesn’t pass from deep because he doesn’t play from deep, he’s usually the furthest forward. He can go missing sometimes, for sure, just like Hazard, Sala and Messi.

                  • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:00 pm

                    Creativity is in the feet but also in the mind. Dele has a creative mind for sure. He doesn’t create enough but was using his creativeness in negative ways,diving,etc. he does some brilliant things at times. To be he has a creative mind. he doesn’t open up defences though too much.
                    So I don’t see as being creative. Passing is a huge vehicle for creativity. He is not a great passer.

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:01 pm

                      The last sentences was about Son

                    • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 2:10 pm

                      “Creativity is the invention of something new which has value”. That’s the definition. It seems that your definition is defence splitting passes. That’s fine, it’s just opinions!

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:35 pm

                      Its very difficult for a dictionary to define it FoF. Its abstract. Its why some people can take a picture of something and another can take the same thing and it will be totally different. Perspective comes into it. Its not definable actually as its relative to whatever its applied to and yet still it remains an opinion.

    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 30/01/2019 at 1:16 pm

      Monaco, who are absolute toilet at the moment are willing to get rid of someone who is apparently highly rated. Doesn’t make sense to me unless Monaco need the money or there’s a fall out with the manager. If the latter why the fall out? Poch (and Levy) are under pressure to sign someone yet Poch allegedly says no fanks. I’m happy to go with the Poch.

      • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:21 pm

        How much interest has Poch shown in getting creative players?????

        • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 1:23 pm

          Can we have a list of the creative players you would like us to sign Ron?

          • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:25 pm

            No Im not the expert Poch is

            • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 1:31 pm

              You constantly talk about players who can regularly open up defences, yet you don’t substantiate it by highlighting players that can do these things. At some point surely you realise that to have the opportunity to execute defence splitting passes, there needs to be movement from other players in the team to create the space for this type of pass.

              • 89Spurs 👁 30/01/2019 at 1:35 pm

                Kevin De Bruyne is creative so is David Siva, but both got stuffed last night.

                • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 1:43 pm

                  It’s the movement of the rest of the team which moves the opposition around creating the space and opportunity for players such as De Bruyne and Silva to execute those types of passes.
                  Last night is a good example of how a team defending in numbers restrict space for the attacking team and opportunities for defence splitting passes.

                  • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:48 pm

                    Its a one off game and a reason to not be looking for quality players even pearls in oysters?
                    Seems to me Poch doesn’t really look for that quality in a player.

                  • UnkleTaff 30/01/2019 at 1:50 pm

                    Exactly. Pochettino’s teams operate. As. A. Team. His style of play doesn’t afford us the luxury of a player whose role is simply to be creative; they all have to muck in with the tracking back and closing down etc. Eriksen is a very creative player but we don’t get to see as much of that side of him as we might to if he were at Barcelona, say, as he’s often busy doing the dirty work that his coach insists on.

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:54 pm

                      This is true and has added to our success.Good point. But this system by itself with less creativity also is a burden in finding space often.Its the thing that’s lacking. So Im also not sure whether players like Dele and Lamela could up their creativity with us in this system. Or even a creative player comes in and he would also have a problem creating.Its an interesting question.

              • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:45 pm

                Cas see the creativeness in other teams all the time.Its highlighted by their ability to pass through defences. No it doesn’t happen all the time but we lack this much of the time.
                Can I come up with players that will add to that?
                Not the players we can afford. It would take scouts and a manager that has an inkling about that to travel and find these players as we wont spend threepunce on anyone

                • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 1:53 pm

                  I responded to your post because you only ever highlight the need for a player who’s going to miraculously provide defence splitting passes, it’s not as simple as that. If you also focused on team movement it would be easier to understand the point you’re trying to make.

                  • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:56 pm

                    Yes well its like a meal that doesn’t taste quite right and trying to add a little seasoning etc.Its lacking something. Poch probably thinks its lacking more of the system.I think its lacking a little creativity

                    • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 2:02 pm

                      I understand that, but that’s a team issue, tactics, tempo and so on, not necessarily down to whether we have creative players or not, which we do. I also get frustrated at times with the tempo of our passing or lack of width, but that’s down to the team and tactics, not whether we have creative players.

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:19 pm

                      In 1972 I was here in Canada and Canada and Russia played an amazing series of Ice Hockey for the first time. Top players from both countries were involved.It really highlighted their styles.
                      Canada played typical of Canadian hockey. Throw the puck in the opposing half and chase in and basically press and win the puck back etc.It could have been where Bielsa and Im not joking found his system,its very similar.
                      Russia on the other hand were full of talented players (ok David Silva types) passing well even at speed etc
                      As much as I wanted Canada to win,I really liked the way the Russians played. Canada won the last game of the series and won it. But many of the Russian players moved to the NHL and the game moved on to incorporate both styles. Some teams a bit heavier on the physical game a la Poch and some more flowing etc.

                      It does take both ways today. Systems themselves have to be more fluid as other clubs catch on to a system. I think we need more creativity in our game whether its the players or Poch,

          That’s a question that only Poch and team can answer!!

          • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:26 pm

            Ok done

  • TCY 30/01/2019 at 1:33 pm

    Proof’s in the pudding. Pool City others improved squads in order to compete. Spurs do nothing but overwork the talent we have. Not a winning strategy. Agree with Ron that creativity is lacking. Attacks too slow to develop. Rose only one moving ball forward top speed. Attack is turgid, too slow. That’s Poch. Do think Son is creative.

  • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:34 pm

    We do a lot to deserve our position because we are in that position. Tough tackling.Is one,pressing,being fit.
    It comes at a cost too. Injuries and stuff.
    But other teams are starting to incorporate some of the things we do.
    We do have Harry Kane and Eriksen. The Bale and Modric of its time. We have Dele. We generally have a great back line.
    Son has become a hero of sorts but he also has had spells of being great with his shooting mixed with quite the opposite. So I still have a question mark with him. On his day he can be great but he can also be terrible. Lamela. What can I say. He is a seed of a talent player that may not ever grow into a tree.
    Thank God for Sissoko. He is a train. He takes the ball and moves it to the opposing box. Thank god for him.

    • TCY 30/01/2019 at 1:37 pm

      Agree on Sissy. Much improved. Now if he learned to finish we’d have a complete player.

      • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:40 pm

        My point Cincy is that thank God we have Sissy as he really help move the ball up when we needed it. More than he is a complete player etc.He isn’t.

  • TCY 30/01/2019 at 1:41 pm

    We are in sync.

  • TCY 30/01/2019 at 1:47 pm

    Good point for Poch—Sissy much improved since he came into team. Good coaching I have to guess. I suspect Poch likes Dier for some of the same reasons as My Little Sis—but he hasn’t improved. Dier, Wanyama, Sanchez, Toby—all going backwards IMHO.

    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 1:51 pm

      Sissokois a tough player.he runs up the field nobody wants to confront him.He is a powerhouse. There isn’t any end product in a sense as he just lays it off if he can. If players got marked he wouldn’t know what to do with the ball though

      • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 1:55 pm

        I’d still sell him, and look for a player who can perform the same role but has more technical ability i.e end product.

        • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:03 pm

          I wouldn’t sell him before we bought someone who was similar but with more creative talent. NDombele seems to be a type

          • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 2:07 pm

            I think Ndombele would be a great signing, doubt it’ll happen though.

            • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:25 pm

              So here we have a case.he is a player who seems would be perfect for Pochs system and a player who can make things happen. Ok how many of them are there? Not many right?
              800 million quid stadium.defensive players up to the ceiling and some fine attackers. Does it make any sense not to go for it. I mean its not a Pogba or a Van Dyke.
              So we say where does the problem lie. Levy,Poch? Both? Poch may not value that enough.I don’t know but if I was Poch unless Im getting paid enough to not say anything Id be putting my foot down.he has nothing to lose. He would have a better job the next day,and Levy would have a huge fucking problem. That’s leverage.

              • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:30 pm

                Im not saying by the way that NDombele is a creative genius but he does tick enough boxes for Pochs system and also to add to the attack which Dembele really didn’t do enough

              • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 2:33 pm

                Depending on your definition of ‘a player who makes things happen’ I’m not sure whether Ndombele fits that criteria. His contribution to the team is mainly in centre midfield, he’s not known for scoring goals or providing assists, his contribution to the team is probably most similar to Sissoko, except Ndombele has greater technical ability.

                • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:37 pm

                  Technical ability if joined with a vision,some kind of vision works. Sissoko is more of a train.

                  • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 2:40 pm

                    Judge for yourself Ron, personally I think he’s very similar to Sissoko, just a far better version.

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:43 pm

                      Yes seen him before as I said (and Ive said before) he looks perfect as it also ticks Pochs boxes

                    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:51 pm

                      Just watched it again. Seen his clips for a long timeThe difference between NDombele and Dembele is that NDombele seems more direct in his play.Both have ball control but NDombele pushes forward and Dembele was always doing circles and laying off

                      His ball control is a million times better than Sissoko

                • Sexy Beast 30/01/2019 at 2:38 pm

                  N’Dombele is a powerhouse who carries the ball and goes past players with ease, right up Pooch’s street who sadly will sign for one of our competitors or PSG.

              • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 30/01/2019 at 2:36 pm

                If that’s true Ron then why doesn’t he put his foot down? He doesn’t look like the cowardly custard sort so why doesn’t he? Maybe he has and Levy has told him to shut the f*ck up. Maybe Poch is packing his suitcase. Maybe Levy has explained the plan and maybe he’s OK with it. Maybe Levy has offered him players and Poch says not for me. Maybe it’s the devil you know rather than the one you don’t. Bottom line is we don’t know but at the moment apart from one or two missing links I think we’re in a good place. So is the pot half empty or half full?

                • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:39 pm

                  He does believe in the system and the making of players doing these certain things.Maybe he things these players need to do more. Maybe he himself isn’t creative thinking but rather sold on the system himself. Its possible. Some engineers are creative some are not.Some architects are creative some are not.

              • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 2:37 pm

                “Does it make any sense not to go for it”.
                If we do like this player, and if we haven’t already gone for it, then there’s lots of reasons not to go for it.
                Transfer price.
                Wages.
                Availability.
                Other teams interested.

                  yes there are always those things. They are points too.
                  Maybe we never would have bought anyone ever. There would be no Mackay or Blanchflower,No Ginola or Klinsmann,No Greaves.

                  • foeorfreund 30/01/2019 at 2:50 pm

                    But you seem to be assuming already that we are not interested, we wouldn’t try hard for a player like this, and there is some kind of problem.
                    And football is a different entity to what is was when Ginola and Klinnsman were with us, let alone Danny, Dave and Jimmy. Does the ability to sign Greaves in 1961 mean that we should have the ability to sign Messi in 2019?

                      There are others we can unload too. But yes if it could finance NDombele why not???? It would be completely assinine not to

                    • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 30/01/2019 at 3:02 pm

                      It would be if you had a verbal deal with NDombele, sold Sissy only to find NDombele changed his mind. Or you bought NDombele and then couldn’t offload Sissy.

                    • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 3:03 pm

                      I don’t think there’s a need for two players of similar style in the squad, plus, as Sissoko’s performances have improved this season, his market value has risen accordingly.
                      Other players leaving can help fund other signings the club may wish to make.

                    • ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 3:04 pm

                      my point about other players would be more about extra money to finiance a player.Vis a Vis what could we get for Sissoko and what would NDombele cost.

                    • ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 3:06 pm

                      Andy these things are thought of ahead and can be in the deal Im pretty sure that its null and void if so and so happens etc

                    • ronwol1960-61 30/01/2019 at 3:10 pm

                      If we stop and think how ridiculous all this is when we are getting money when getting into the CL apart from the great amount that each team get.
                      Yes the stadium etc. But without enough of the right product what would investing a lot in the physical apprearance of a shop be? I mean to fans go to pay to look at the walls etc. (Maybe Nut,Cas and Andy…. 🙂 )

                  • SpurAndy 🥧🍒 30/01/2019 at 3:15 pm

                    Nowt wrong with a good wall Ron 😁. We all yearn for what we think is the missing link. If only we had that player or this player we’d be winning pots all over the place. It’s good to dream and do a bit of whatifery but we shouldn’t (and I’m sure you don’t) lose sight of what we have and enjoy the moment.

    In other news the best thing I’ve heard in years yesterday was The Poochmiester say he will stay until the end with us, fucking brilliant news!
    There is a Manc at my golf club who was whining on in his irritating manc accent ” I’ll bet you any money you like Pooch will be Man Utd manager next summer” The sheer arrogance and sense of entitlement boiled my piss at the time, so looking forward to seeing him again, Wanker!

    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 2:45 pm

      Yes I will be here till the end too. But who know when the end will end

    • McG ⚽⚽ 30/01/2019 at 3:37 pm

      I don’t want Poch to stay if he won’t sign anyone, whats the point? It’ll be like death from a thousand paper cuts. I’m already finding the persistent selection of Davies hard to stomach. We don’t need much in the creative department, we need a half decent Harry alternative, replacements for Davies & Tripps, & someone to fill Dembele’s boots. Tielemans looked a damn good option from what I’ve seen of him. Whole things getting tiring, & people like Eriksen will walk away cos we showing no ambition whatsover.

      • Sexy Beast 30/01/2019 at 3:50 pm

        Well if he has control over ins and outs then I for one am 100% for that and I bet we won’t have to endure N’gees, Stambuli’s and N’cludos going forward. He is clearly confident in his judgement and we fans should get behind him and support him. He wanted Rabiot but Rabiot prefers money over ambition, fuck him in the face. He wants very specific skill set for potential signings and clearly knows his onions McG, now I don’t want to question your ability to spot a good player but I’m happy to let Pooch choose potential signings going forward.
        The bloke has done an incredible job with no money, now that he likely has a few quid to spend he wants to spend it wisely and do his best for the club not to bring in squad fillers but a player that will push for a starting place and hopefully improve us all round.

        • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 4:08 pm

          Apparently we haven’t had any contact with Rabiot about signing for us, it’s all paper talk, as usual.

  • SeattleSpursGuy 30/01/2019 at 4:02 pm

    Some tough calls for today, given who’s available, but I’m saying Poch picks:

    Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Winks, Dier, Sissoko, Eriksen; Lamela, Son.

    • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 4:09 pm

      Is Sissy fit again?

    • McG ⚽⚽ 30/01/2019 at 4:38 pm

      SSG, no offence but Winks, Dier & Sissoko in the same side? Need extra goal threat with no Harry, gotta stick Moura in there for me, & hopefully take Dier out!!

      • Caspurs 30/01/2019 at 4:47 pm

        Perhaps a 4-3-3, Moura left wing, Lamela right wing with Son central, then Eriksen at the vanguard of the midfield 3?
        Justa fort…

        • McG ⚽⚽ 30/01/2019 at 6:22 pm

          Yeah, something like that would be good, all depends on whether Poch is gonna go for it, or poopy it!!

  • SeattleSpursGuy 30/01/2019 at 5:05 pm

    The rumor on Tielemans is Monaco only want to loan him, but with no option to buy. If that is true then I wouldn’t make a deal. Imagine he comes in and does well for 6 months, only to be sold to ManU for a higher fee. That is exactly how we poached Toby from Athletico by way of Southampton.

    • Ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 5:10 pm

      That tells you a lot.We cant loan to buy,we cant loan,and we cant buy.

          • Chauvelin 30/01/2019 at 5:27 pm

            I wrote earlier there seems to be a weird dynamic at play between Levy and Pochettino. Levy pretends he’ll support Poch with new additions, and Poch pretends he is fine without new players, so long as no one expects anything more than he is currently delivering. They seem to be at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and handing each other empty plates.

    Arsenal have signed Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez on loan until the end of the season.

    The La Liga champions have extended the 25-year-old’s contract until June 2021, although the Gunners have a purchase option in the summer.

    Spaniard Suarez has played 71 times for Barcelona since joining in 2013 but has only featured eight times this season.

    He previously played under Gunners manager Unai Emery at Sevilla, when he was at the club on loan.

    • ronwol196061 30/01/2019 at 5:25 pm

    A loan only deal makes more sense for Monaco. Showcases Tielemans in the PL at Leicester, and sell him to an oil tycoon in the summer.

    Let’s go for this Carlos Soler, he seems to be a very good player and an Argie too.

    Leave Vorm out of CL squad to give him a place. Won’t probably be a problem without Vorm as Dortmund will be very hard to beat and chances are won’t get to last 8.

      Chant for Tonight:
      I’m a bitch, I’m a bitch oh, the bitch is back
      Stone cold sober as a matter of fact
      I can bitch, I can bitch ’cause I’m better than you
      It’s the way that I move, the things that I do oh
