Sweating Yet?

Image result for sweating images

Yeah, a bit.

I’m an Oeufer of the highest Oeufness. I believe in the project, in the long term strategy that is in place at our club. We haven’t been able to compete financially, in terms of transfer fees and wages for the very best players, in years. Everything that we are doing with regards to the infrastructure at the club points towards this being a thing of the past…at some point in the future.

But, being a devoted supporter, like all of you, I’d like it now. Maybe not all of it at once, but just a sign, a pinprick of light at the end of the tunnel. The new contract for Kane did this, as did keeping Poch from the jaws of the biggest fish in our ocean.

But I’d like a bit more.

I understand that we are at a point where a lot of the players we have don’t necessarily reflect our financial position. According to well researched reports, in Kane and Dele, we have two of the worlds most valuable footballing assets. Eriksen, Verts and Tobes could probably walk into any team in the world. Son, Trippier and Hugo would be coveted by many of the top footballing teams in Europe. To IMPROVE on what we have, at least our best 11, would mean trying to buy players that are probably in the top 5 in the world, in their respective positions.

I also understand that it is currently a sellers market. With all the money in the PL, clubs are under no pressure to sell, unless via player and agent power. All the top European clubs have CL money, so it’s a similar scenario here. Just like we don’t have to sell Tobes, Rose or Dembele unless the price is acceptable (and hugely inflated), most clubs that own players that I would suggest we are after, won’t sell unless it is also a hugely inflated price.

But going on our improved finances, on promises both previous and current that there is a transfer budget that is not affected by the stadium build, on the fact that we are a regular CL team with world class players and a world class manager, I think there must be a possibility of at least one top, top player.

I’m not talking about Grealish, or the Cook lad. Relatively low transfer fees, cheap wages, no big deal if it doesn’t work out, fantastic if they reach Dier or Dele heights.

I’d like a sign of intent.

That’s not to say that I’ll be calling for Levy’s head, should it not happen.

That’s not to say that I’m concerned about our competitiveness for the coming season. There’s a slim chance that we could win something. There’s a good chance we can compete to win something, and a very good chance of sustaining top four.

But we could be just one player away, one game changer, from changing that slim chance to a good, or very good chance.

The whole delay over Grealish tells me that he wasn’t anywhere near our first choice for the summer. Probably didn’t even make the top 5 on our wish list. I’d very much like him to come, he fits the mould of young, hungry, talented players that work well with our manager and our transfer budgets and wage caps, as does the Cook lad. We should be buying at least a few of these every summer window to enhance our squad.

But I want some pwopa, proven talent too.

Just one would do.

Please.

I’ve got a feeling that Levy has something under his hat, he’s ready to unleash proof of his powers for the whole world to see, presented live by the repulsive Jim White. But I’m a Flat Oeufer, so I think that every window.

    Sod it. Timmy Sherwood thinks Grealish will join Spurs, so that’s that. Clearly he won’t be coming.

    After 5pm, the fun won’t be over guys and gals. We will then enter the limbo period up till the 31st, when our players can be sold overseas. Danny Rose will probably be off, so our contingent of home grown players will shrink by one. Looks like the U21s will have a higher profile in the coming season.

    • UnkleTaff 09/08/2018 at 12:50 pm

      We’ll still have more homegrown players than we did last year, though (if only because both Winks and Alli have turned 21).

  • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 12:45 pm

    Just a thought on Grealish
    The way it’s been reported is that Daniel Levy has dropped a clanger by leaving it too late to sign Jack Grealish. The reality though is that he was a potential squad player they would have liked to sign but weren’t going to be held to ransom about it.

    There’s been loads of noise about Grealish from the media but imagine Levy and Tottenham will get over it pretty quickly.

    This is from the Telegraph live deadline day feed.
    And is probably about right.

  • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 12:48 pm

    Watford are chasing West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore, on a loan deal with an option to buy after being rebuffed for James Ward-Prowse this morning.

    As a replacement for Doucoure? Yes please.

    • Bruxie βŒ› 09/08/2018 at 12:49 pm

      You read my mind.

    “I am so happy at the way they come back, to the training Monday, I am really really happy,” he said.

    “I am so proud, they were very focused and tried to arrive in a good condition – the circumstances are different for each other. Some players need more time to get fit than others.

    “Some players will be fit to start the game, some will be fit to be on the bench. Maybe some players will stay here to reach the level, because maybe we don’t want to take risks.”

    Good news, Pochy baby!

      • Bardamu 09/08/2018 at 1:21 pm

        There are a number of injuries. Not Poch’s fault but Lamela, Wanyama, Winks, Onomah, Foyth and CCV are all out.

        • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 1:23 pm

          The “some players will be fit to start the game” is good news.

    “It is so difficult now, only four hours to the end. Until the game finishes you can’t say it is the end of the game but in four hours it will be difficult to sign players.”

    “I am happy to keep all the squad together, there were many rumours during the summer about players out,” he said.

    “The club made a massive effort to try and extend contracts of Harry Kane, just one example.

    “The club is trying to finish the stadium as soon as possible.

    “It is difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn’t sign or didn’t sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different.

    “We are happy with our squad and we cannot improve our squad.

    “It is better to keep our squad all together, we believe a lot in our players.”

    • UnkleTaff 09/08/2018 at 1:23 pm

      Good man. Contrast this with the bleatings coming out of Old Trafford.

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 1:36 pm

      All the squad? Does that include Toby?

  • Bardamu 09/08/2018 at 1:22 pm

    I hate to be that guy but “we cannot improve our squad” is an untruth.

    No doubt from me either, gaffer.

  • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 1:32 pm

    AND TOBY ALDERWEIRELD?

    “We didn’t receive (any offer) for any player,” Pochettino says.

    “I don’t like to talk about personal situation. I think it is clear what is going on and how we are going to move in the future. I am happy with all the players at the moment.”

    Sorry for going all Raz on you chaps, but it’s important stuff.

  • Bardamu 09/08/2018 at 1:36 pm

    If Toby stays, Toby plays then, yes?
    Look at Mahrez last season.
    One of their top players – he’d wanted out, he stayed and he played all season.

    Agreed, chaps?

    • Fat Bertha 09/08/2018 at 1:37 pm

      I hope he really is staying but I was never convinced he’d leave.

      • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 1:39 pm

        Darling you got to let me know
        Should I stay or should I go?
        If you say that you are mine
        I’ll be here ’til the end of time…

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 1:38 pm

      It’s a yes from me. But as the European window moves to their last few days and hours, don’t be surprised if clubs who miss out on their first options start looking at Toby.

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 1:38 pm

      I’d leave that down to Poch, but if he stays we have enviable choices at the back compared to most PL teams.

    • Bruxie βŒ› 09/08/2018 at 1:39 pm

      Ask him. Ask Poch.

      I don’t know. We’ll find out in a week or so when all the players are at a similar level of fitness.
      Toby will be behind those who were not at the WC or who left the competition early.

      If he plays against the barcodes I’ll be gobsmacked.

  • ronwol196061 09/08/2018 at 1:38 pm

    For me all we had to do is go out and find a replacement for Dembele

    No need to panic over the first game.

            Which means that Cook could still be an option.

      • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 1:58 pm

        Of the non-latecomers to pre-season, you’d expect Sanchez, Davies, Eriksen and Moura to start.
        No doubt Lloris will start, fitness not being as much of an issue.
        If Trips isn’t ready, then Aurier or KWP to cover.
        Very much doubt Tobes , hoping Verts is one of the “some will start” list. If so we have a good back four.
        Got a feeling Kane will start, though I doubt he’ll be fully up to speed.
        That leaves 3 places, all midfield. Got a feeling it’ll be Sissoko and Amos, hopefully made up with Dier being fit enough.

        • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 2:00 pm

          Let’s hope Jonjo Shelvey doesn’t boss our weak midfield or it could be a bad result.

      But don’t let my glad expression

    I’m expecting nothing. Pochettino is resigned to the fact and although he is correct that the team is strong, you can never be too strong in my opinion. In business you grow or die, there is no treading water.

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 1:59 pm

      Can’t say that I agree with that sentiment, Chauv, re growing or dying.

      • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 2:04 pm

        It’s a biological truth too. It’s a universal truth of all systems. Nothing endures but change; Everything flows, nothing stands still; the only constant is change.The same way the universe is constantly changing, constantly transforming chaos into order, our living cells are always trying to maintain equilibrium and if they cannot, they die and are broken apart, recycled and flushed.

        • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 2:05 pm

          We must place trust that our growth comes from those Academy players.

        • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 2:14 pm

          In terms of Tottenham, not buying players in this transfer window certainly doesn’t mean death. In terms of business, yes, over the long term this is truth, but certainly not in the short term. In certain market conditions, treading water would very much be seen as a positive thing.
          Looking back at Tottenham, it is hard to doubt that in the previous 4 seasons to last season, there was growth both as a business and a football team. Last season could possibly be seen as treading water, and this season may prove to be the same. Does that mean death is on its way?

          • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 2:28 pm

            It’s my worry that we will find ourselves weaker in central midfield. So to that extent we would be certainly atrophying.

            • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 2:35 pm

              Yep, think we all agree that reinforcements in that area would have been ideal, but how can we be weaker than last season if we have retained the same players? There could be an argument that Dembele is a year older so won’t be quite so effective, but you could also argue that Winks will be a year older, and therefore more effective.
              We’re certainly no stronger.

      • Bardamu 09/08/2018 at 2:08 pm

        Well, the business is certainly growing. Is the football team?
        We’ll find out soon enough.
        I certainly think we have enough to make top 4 again but that’s now my ceiling for this season.

        Someone likened Poch to Fergie, but Fergie would have added a Cantona or a Keane to the mix if he was serious about pursuing the silverware route.

    I’m so calm it’s unbelievable. I feel like Christian Bale in equilibrium.

    Diego Godin has been trending with 19.7k tweets.
    In essence, United have been bantered off by Godin’s agent.
    He approached United earlier in the week saying a deal could be done.
    United made an offer.
    Godin signs bumper new contract at 2:30pm today.

    Keen to get in on the action, The Daily Star have just published a story 10 mins ago exclaiming “Manchester United transfer news: Diego Godin could be on his way from Atletico Madrid to Manchester with stunning wife…”

    More as I get it.

    • Superspoz πŸ† 09/08/2018 at 2:57 pm

      Yeah but what about the ITK?

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 2:58 pm

      7.5 million Euro’s better off than he was a few hours ago.
      Whatever the agents cut is, he’s earned it.

  • Bardamu 09/08/2018 at 3:00 pm

    Kane in hypno-birthing backlash.
    He’s just felt the need to post the following, after presumably being pelted for saying he was proud of his wife.

    “Let’s get one thing straight, any women can give birth however they would like. I’m very proud of my fiancΓ©e for doing it the way she wanted and we both learnt a lot from hypnobirthing.”

    Welcome back, Harry 😬

    Chelsea have loaned, released or sold 32 of their youngsters so far this window.

      Money scramble. They have to deal with Europa income. πŸ˜‚

      It’s been a good year down on t’farm…

        Moight even treat meeself to a new crook.

        • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:43 pm

          Plenty of crooks down at t’Fridge.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:41 pm

    So, anything untoward happened in the last hour?

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 3:43 pm

      I had a late lunch, but am still unsatisfied.

  • SeattleSpursGuy 09/08/2018 at 3:41 pm

    Poch confirms that some of our late returnees won’t travel Opp Norf. Not too surprising.

    “β€œOf course the circumstances are completely different from each other, and the profiles of the players are completely different. Some need more time to get fit than others. That’s normal. Some players will be fit to start the game. Some will be fit to be on the bench. Maybe some players will stay here to try to reach the level, to give more time, for different reasons – because maybe we don’t want to take risks, because they need more preparation, because the background or history of their injuries is different.”

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:47 pm

      Blimey! Some of the players will fit on the bench?

  • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 3:45 pm

    Speaking on Sky Sports News, Paul Merson has praised Tottenham for keeping hold of midfielder Mousa Dembele.

    Inter Milan were linked with a move for the Belgium international.

    β€œI’d buy Dembele tomorrow morning,” the Sky Sports pundit said. β€œHe’s one of the best players in the Premier League.

    β€œIf I was Man United, I’d sell Pogba tomorrow morning for Β£100m and buy Dembele. All day long. I think Dembele’s up there with the best of the best.β€œ

    Why wait until tomorrow morning, Merse?

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:50 pm

      Don’t think a contract signed by Merson would be legal till he’s sober. Earliest could be tomorrow.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:54 pm

    Let’s just hope that Dembele, Toby and Rose commit to the cause. Mousa might just be running down his contract is my worry.

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 3:59 pm

      I’m sure he will be, and fair play to him. He’ll hopefully get a good pay day, especially if he has a good season with us.
      By then he’ll have been with us for 7 years, well worth the 15mil spent, and we’ll have spent Β£xxxxxxxxxxx on the amazing talent that is xxxxxxxxxx to replace him ;-D

      • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:08 pm

        One more heave lads and you can leave us after winning silverware. That would be the best way to leave the fans cheering in your wake. Tears, not jeers.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 3:59 pm

    Dendoncker signed for Wolves. Belgian international DM, aged 23. I’ve got a bad feeling there were decent punts out there and we’ve missed a trick.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:02 pm

    “I’ve been running about and I’m sweating like a Spurs fan”… Tony Livesey on FiveLive.

  • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 4:02 pm

    β€œWe have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very difficult to add players to that,” the boss added.

    β€œWe didn’t sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is difficult to add players.

    β€œIt’s not about adding because it’s fashionable to sign players. It’s about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.

    β€œIt’s true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can’t achieve that.

    β€œI am not worried, I am not sad, I am so happy. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that – at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.

    β€œIf you can’t add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager.”

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:04 pm

      Time will tell, as it always does. Bravado or realism?

      • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 4:10 pm

        I think he believes in his squad, and his own ability to improve them.
        I also think he’d have loved some good additions, like the rest of us.
        So I reckon a bit of both.

        • ronwol196061 09/08/2018 at 4:14 pm

          He talks in riddles
          Nothing to learn from what he says

          Watch the ball not his mouth

          • Superspoz πŸ† 09/08/2018 at 4:18 pm

            Yuk!

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:06 pm

    Fuggit. It is what it is and at least Rose won’t need to Google anybody.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:10 pm

    Apparently the paperwork deadline is 7pm, so still might have deals announced after 5pm.

  • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:11 pm

    FiveLive team say in reality, it’s been really quiet today compared to previous deadline days

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:13 pm

      Spurs are the talking point for what we haven’t done, and the reasons for not doing it.

  • 61 Spurs Nut 🌰 09/08/2018 at 4:14 pm

    Saw me mum back in hospital after a couple of recent hypos. The stinking hot weather hasn’t helped. She’s much better now and a lot perkier. Has her sense of humour back as well after a very difficult 4 weeks.

    F*ck the transfer window. This is real life.

    We’ll still challenge for stuff this season.
    COYFS!

    • foeorfreund 09/08/2018 at 4:17 pm

      You’re damn right Nut, glad to hear your mum’s ok. πŸ‘

  • Superspoz πŸ† 09/08/2018 at 4:16 pm

    Deadline. What’s the origin of of that word? Yes I can Google it but then there’d be nuffin to talk about.

    • Chauvelin 09/08/2018 at 4:29 pm

      Great album cover.

        I should get the MP3 as I’ve only got the vinyl.
