Latest target?

You will have all seen the reports of us targeting ‘England starlet’ Lewis Cook for around the £30m mark.

To me, this points to 3 possible scenarios.

  1.  He’s our Davinson Sanchez of 2018.  The ITK that nobody even vaguely picked up on.  A target we’ve kept on the quiet.
  2. An alternative and/or smokescreen for the Grealish deal.  Some will say that they are not the same kind of player, Grealish more of a No. 10, Cook more of a No. 8 or No. 4…but they’re identical in terms of profile and homegrown status.
  3. It’s a load of cobblers made up by a Press who have caught on that we need some English players, know Poch likes young prospects and have searched around looking for people that fit the bill.

 

What do you reckon?

      Middle of the night over Sellafield…

  • Chauvelin 03/08/2018 at 11:25 pm

    Steve Bruce says talks have been going on between Spurs and Villa for most of the summer, but no actual bid made. This is a bit of a head scratcher over what they can find to say for so long…

    Spurs rep: “can we have Jack cheap?”
    Villa rep: “No.”

    Repeat ad infinitum until Villa cracks…

      Did you do anything nice today?

      • HD 🇺🇸 03/08/2018 at 11:38 pm

        Yes

        I’m not seeing my lads till tomorrow. The family meal. Today was low key, the missus and I took in a movie. She wanted to see Mama Mia 2 and I didnt. So I watched Ant Man and the Wasp. Two hours of my life wasted. It’s had good reviews and I can’t work out why.

        Back home for a light repast and then read a book.

        • Fat Bertha 04/08/2018 at 12:09 am

          Your missus in screen 1 and you in screen 2?

          • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:10 am

            Were you behind me in the queue? Or are you just psychic FB?

          • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:16 am

            You are correct. Mama Mia was showing in the downstairs auditorium so the horde of largely blue rinsed ladies of a certain age didn’t have to climb the stairs, and all us youngsters watched the bland, special effects laden non-story in the upper screen.

    • ronwol196061 04/08/2018 at 12:02 am

      I think talking is negotiating. It’s negotiating without the numbers. It’s a preamble to it.
      You find out first what the other side wants and how anxious they are. They are obviously not anxious but Mark my words at 5 minutes to when the clock strikes 12 they might be.

      It starts off as Humpty Trumpty and ends up as Cinderella

      • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:07 am

        If they just want the cash to bank they won’t be needing time to spend it I assume. Might go right up to the wire in that case.

  • Spursy 03/08/2018 at 11:36 pm

    All a bit quiet on the transfer front… Will ol’ Daniel get his fax machine hand-cranked for a late-night special or is Poch giving a big clue with his ‘or zero’ quote. Only time will tell.

        All fine. Just back from a holiday down in Cornwall. Weather was best ever!

      I like this one. Is this the third kit?

      Blue bar at bottom of home jersey makes them all look fat. This will cost us in speed and agility.

    • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:18 am

      Clean and dignified.

      Nike have been slack this season. Gave the kit assignment to a work experience intern from the looks of the offerings.

  • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:23 am

    Levy knows and very few others. This is a great deal of money for someone who cost Inter 33 million three years ago and sold him for 23 million this summer.

  • Ronwol1960-61🕎⚽🎷🎥 04/08/2018 at 12:24 am

    I have a theory. I think the club puts out stories in News Now just so the populace of Flat Oeufworld we react. Then they take a poll of what we say.They give it to Poch and he gives it to Levy and Levy makes a paper airplane out of it and throws it out of his executive office. If it lands on the centre circle he doesnt buy the player and if it misses the centre circle he doesnt buy the player

      Get your coat. You’re signed!

  • Chauvelin 04/08/2018 at 12:32 am

    The next few days it will be worth avoiding sports broadcasts. The main topic of conversation will be predictable. “Spurs yet to sign a player. Blah blah blah.”

  • Antspurs 04/08/2018 at 1:28 am

    Does anyone know the number colour on the bbacknof the away kit. Is it white or turquoise or red . I don’t know. Getting it for my boy and don’t want to get the wrong colour. He won’t give a shit either but may as well get it right. Haven’t seen us play in the away kit. He wants it personalised and a he last was no 10. A white kit which his mum still has kittens washing it. It’s the blue one this time and he’s so excited For the he Fulham game he thinks he might get Called up to replace Pickford , Gomes, van DerVaart, he don’t pay no bloody attention. To this kind of thing. Well he’s about to. I do not think , in fact I know that there is nothing like being part of a crowd all wanting the same thing. Fuck me my introduction was at wHL and I was spoilt but 40k . And probably 10k we’re West Ham. Crissy waddle (learnt how to draw from that free kick ) . Said this before but the real passion at that time came from seeing the small section of the away fans going nuts. Was feeling joy for them at that moment. I know at 9 years olds I already knew what footie was about. The winner from fairclough. Anyways my boy is about to have the best feeling if his life, and if anyone fancies meeting before the game, he knows about you lot, spurts is his fave like me ( only cause he hears me larfing really loud when spurts is on the scene) I have no faves like him but if anyone if yous sexy number 1, fofty (we’ll close to spurts for me) only day that because I’m a bit slow. Ron well the stratosphere is not close. Stratosphere is not small enough. Just found out g dawg is someone I admired. Last but not least Mr RF, I didn’t realise that you were getting the grief ,I knew you were abused badly and asked …anyways you deserve absolute credit for this. I may seem like an ass licker to the fools , ahem those who do not know me but you have created something that completely sutpasses anything I have ever known as a gathering other than my first day at WHL. You are a legend and I hope one day to meet you and shake your hand x

    • Antspurs 04/08/2018 at 1:30 am

      Erm proof reading hello. I speak really well but look like an idiot when I write. From the heart anyways

      • ronwol196061 04/08/2018 at 1:40 am

        We need proof you are not heartley

        • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 1:50 am

          Maybe . Harts , is really close to my old man I mean similar whatever . It a front in some way , really appreciate his humour apart from Dilly but it’s not important. Hearts and he has it in abundance. I think he likes me but not sure anymore. Don’t give two shits anyways. Nah i do and i would like to know how many guys/babes are on this site now. Id guess 150 but wither way this place is effing amazing. I hope Cas and Taff may forgive me 😘

          • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 1:54 am

            I sway back and forth but one things for sure. I straight down the middle. I play footy cross between Paul scholes (better tackler) Paul Allen , shot hot on the wing and Paul Gasgcoigne (for the drinking ) anr off the scale craziness. Mad Paul woodhouse larf the other day , he’s a spurs fan I think. Met him in a winery (goes without saying ) and he loved my joke. He was crying. It’s a sham I can’t write

            • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 1:56 am

    I’ll be straight with you. You’re not my cup of tea but neither is tea, everyone is different and so are we, you are you and I’m glad for that otherwise you wouldn’t be and that could affect me, the gooner is a cunt Ive been out on piss and this is my sit down read before emptying so apologies if it dunt read write adios

    • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:15 am

      Harts, I was not having a dig, I swear I speak straight. I wasn’t sure when I wrote who is this cunt that maybe tmtoubtook it the wrong way. Who cares , I do. I do like you but I ain’t no tea drinker either. As I say you don’t apologise and you don’t have to. Neither did my farver. Just out of interest and you owe me nuffin. Why don’t you like me ?

      • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:20 am

        My farver was a massive love for me. Never had him as kid , missed out but never realised. He was so close to me when I got to know him it was unreal. I was complimenting you , however if you could explain would be great .

        • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:26 am

          Ok last call. I honestly think you’re great (apart from DD) but I get that anyways. My biggest problem is that people pretty much always take me the wrong way and I never really gave a shit until I saw my boy with the same troubles. Misunderstood. Even teachers. He ended up hurting a kid so badly it was a shock to me but anyways . I’m straight I like you but from an outside view I would respect an honest Opinion .you would be best

          • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:39 am

            Did you know and I say no more that whilst writing to you to say hello , some arsehole write some nasty and I responded in the same message to you. Look you are no different to most of the cunts who don’t like me, my sister hasn’t spoke to me for 3 years and this ain’t the place but I would really like to know why? Because I feel only the best for everyone. Was it DD or one argument we had where I apologised. Or that you don’t like me . I won’t say anymore but talk straight . Just say it . Honestly I really want to know.

            • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:47 am

              I say it like this cause I lost my old man for 2 years because he did not know how back down. He was proud . He could hug and kiss and say he loved me but he could not deal with the fact that I was right. Look this isn’t a comparison but you are so alike.i will honestly say no more but I think you are unsure about me . That’s cool , I ain’t no pussy despite my kisses. I’ve learnt that why hold back if you like someone

              • AntSpurs 04/08/2018 at 2:48 am

                Who gives a fuck. I do. If I see you and don’t avoid me , it’s all forgetten. I am chilled but would love your opinion.

    I didn’t say I did t like you. I said you’re not my cup of tea, but I have no problem with you and like many others on here and the last place you will no doubt grow on me, but who the fuck am I to be passing judgment anyway, last night I broke a golden rule of mine by posting whilst blathered so I offer my apologies for that

  • Flat Oeuf 04/08/2018 at 10:52 am
