Just hearing that one of the Milan clubs is in for Lamela, a loan though, we think.

I see we have applied to extend the capacity of the new stadium again! 2nd biggest in London. behind our current home.

any rumours about naminng rights yet?

Not sure about this acquisition but Moura has signed.

Agree1 7Disagree

27 Jan 2018 20:51:54
Agree with being unsure on moura, on the face of it seems like a good addition but our main problem the last few seasons doesn't really seem like pace in terms of getting in behind teams, it seems like creativity when erikson is missing or having an off day and a team sits deeps against us. For all the quality we have going forward he seems the only one that can unlock a stubborn defence. Silver lining from tonight hopefully it may make poch realise we could do with another addition to make the squad deeper for when we have erikson alli or son missing.

28 Jan 2018 09:12:31
He can’t be no worse than Lamela or Sissoko.

28 Jan 2018 09:24:08
agreed sheff.

DR and there is the problem, we can not afford another Sissoko, Lamela etc in the squad.

28 Jan 2018 09:32:39
The club are looking to move Lamela on NES.

28 Jan 2018 19:20:35
so I hear. he hasn't exactly fulfilled his potential.

29 Jan 2018 17:08:10
He hasn’t signed yet.
It would be a decent signing because then we’ve got a player that can attack and hopefully beat players from a wide position. We try and walk it in sometimes. Different option that maybe Poch wanted N’jie and GKN to do but couldn’t.

29 Jan 2018 18:51:27
MT, all agreed pal. ps I'm still not sure there's an end product. Lunchbox Christie is fast in a straight line.

he wasn't benched without a reason at PSG.

29 Jan 2018 20:19:23
He was benched because they signed Neymar for the national debt of Greece!

Why is everyone so damn sceptical of Lucas Moura. He has been capped 31 times for Brazil, has won 4 league trophies in France and 3 Cups and I s still only 25 years old. £25m is a few quid more than we sold Wimmer (£18m) for, and we should be excited. PSG needed to flog to balance the books and he will be sensational you see.

Pace, crossing, dribbling, vision and technical ability in a different league to Sissoko. He will come in and cement his pace in our starting XI and show you what a coup he was.

29 Jan 2018 20:37:45
Oracle, I said last week he is the Brazilian Theo Walcott. Now Walcott could have been class if he improved and learned the offside rule.

Moura's problem is his lack of end product, hopefully that can be coached, he is still relatively young although he looks about 40. I think its a gamble but in todays prices one worth paying, we need some pace and trickery and Moura has that in abundance. Its an intriguing signing.

29 Jan 2018 20:43:18
I hope your right Oracle, your historical predictions about Brazil players some how havnt been that accurate.

30 Jan 2018 12:20:38
Didn't he score 19 and assist 11 times last season for PSG!?!

Not bad for someone who has no end product. To compare him to Walcott is completely unfair, he is a quality player, the only question is whether he can produce it in the EPL, this is a quick strong league and completely different from Lique 1, we have suffered with previous purchases from France although Moura is a different quality to N'Jie and GK.

26 Jan 2018 13:59:42
Hey Ed! Any update on Spurs transfers?


{Ed002's Note - Moura should go ahead if the payment schedule can be agreed with PSG and there are no hiccups over personal terms.}

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Jan 2018 15:33:56
Thank You Ed! Did Spurs go for Moura over Malcom?
Also what is your impression of Moura as a player and a person?
Thank You.

{Ed002's Note - Moura is high risk and expensive given he is out of favour and would not be guaranteed a start at many higher-placed English sides given he can't get near the starting 11 at PSG. I don't know how many minutes Moura has played this season but it won't be much - he is rarely in the squad and when he is he is generally an unused substitute. Interest in taking him on loan elsewhere has gone nowhere as the player has high expectations. His abilities are limited to being able to run along a straight line quickly. It makes about zero sense to me.}

26 Jan 2018 16:35:46
totally agree with your assessment ed.

26 Jan 2018 17:35:30
Thanks Ed! I suspect I read your views on some other site as was hoping we'd turn our attention elsewhere, but alas.

28 Jan 2018 10:55:50
ED - A very harsh assessment for Moura. He was sensational before PSG signed Neymar, Draxler and Di Maria. He has been pushed down the pecking order and not been given a chance. He is stil only 25 and has been sidestepped for a year. He can pass, dribble and cross and has good speed, vision and technical ability. He will be sensational at Spurs and will look like a bargain at €25m in a few months time.

Spurs are short of players and need Lucas Moura, Malcom and Sessegnon to be quite blunt! Time to invest a few quid after years of saving, and give ourselves a chance in the FA Cup, Champions League and Top 4. With three additional players the fixture list will see us miss out on all three.

{Ed002's Note - I assume you are not aware that Lucas and Malcom play in the same position?

I also assume you aren't aware of the difficulties Lucas caused and the efforts made to get him back to Brazil?

There is a reason he cannot get a start at PSG.}

28 Jan 2018 12:42:47
what I’ve seen of him, he’s better than what we have. I’ve never rated Lamela, Sissoko has always been average. Both of which lack pace, that’s what we’re crying out for.

29 Jan 2018 20:21:59
Of course I know he plays RAM like Malcom, but he has also played across the line at LAM and even CAM just like Eriksen, Dele Alli and Malcom.

23 Jan 2018 13:33:35
Any more news on lucas moura? He'd be a class addition to the team and has everything poch looks for in a winger.
Hard working and runs tirelessly.
knowing levy psg will want £30 million and he'll offer £12 million or something rediculous. he'll then sign for a rival club and be one of the best players in the league. Willian all over again.

Agree1 4Disagree

23 Jan 2018 17:28:28
Rosscospurs I have to say your spelling of ridiculous brought a smile to my face. Perhaps you had a hidden meaning in your spelling and didn’t even realise.

REDiculous might be a clue to where he is going, but let’s hope that Levy can pull this one off. Moura does look half decent and could be a good signing. The jury is out if he has the class to shine in the Premiership, but I would certainly like to see him at White Hart Lane next season.

24 Jan 2018 12:49:18
My bad just realised
Seeing a whole host of other clubs coming in for him now anyway so looks unlikely now.

24 Jan 2018 17:27:49
Psg probably planting a lot of these links to other clubs.

25 Jan 2018 19:05:29
looks like he lad has lots of pace, in a straight line. not sure of his end product.

26 Jan 2018 12:53:22
Seen rumours that lucas has been shown around the training ground and has held talks with both poch and levy. Hopefully he can push the deal through soon. Another rumour was potentially getting Pastore as well but PSG value him between 25-40 Million and there is no way levy would pay that considering the options we have in those positions.

All in all it looks good news on Lucas as he said he likes the way tottenham play and will suit his style.

26 Jan 2018 17:54:49
Rossco i'm not 100% about this signing at all. I think it maybe a mistake ala Sissyoko.

28 Jan 2018 11:06:20
North East you are making a view based on Sissoko who couldn’t get into Newcastle first XI. Moura is a sensational player with strong technical ability. He has pace and vision, can pass and dribble, can cross and is amazing at set pieces. He was only 23 when PSG started investing 100s millions on the likes of Neymar, Di Maria, Mbappe and Draxler and found himself in the wrong place. €25m is nothing for a player year days, we sold Wimmer for £18m which is over €20m for example. He will fit straight in at RAM in our first XI and be sensational you see. Eriksen CAM and Son LAM. Dele Alli has been terrible this season and needs to start fighting for his place. With FA Cup, Champions League and Premiership stil to lay for, we need cover across the attacking line. Dele Alli, Lamela and dare I say it Malcom, would be brilliant and provide us the depth to challenge.

On a separate not Jay Rodriguez is looking so good again. Pochetino know him so well. Surely worth dumping Llorente and getting a layer like Rodrigues or even Dembele from Celtic.

COYS - Time to show the doubters we can invest and compete. Time to win the FA Cup and grab 4th Place. Perhaps even shock the football world like Liverpool did and steal the Champions League glory!

{Ed001's Note - have you ever seen Moura play? Vision? Pass? Cross? Amazing at set pieces? Clearly you are talking about someone else there. He runs very fast in a straight line. The Brazilian Theo Walcott.}

19 Jan 2018 18:32:54
Malcolm has met Daniel levy and poch on Wednesday and will sign for spurs for 50 million.

Agree1 9Disagree

19 Jan 2018 22:05:15
can believe that we will spend £50m on one play in Jan Raver. media hype.

20 Jan 2018 14:09:27
The thing is NES we need to and I think Poch and Levy know this. He’s only 20 and they’re looking to tie him down to a 5/ 6 year deal. If he’s a class player they’ll make a big profit going by today’s figures if we were to sell after 5 years . Look at Coutinho.

20 Jan 2018 14:17:40
Agree with your prognosis DR, 'IF' is the million dollar question.

it's just not our MO to sp3ndd bug in January sales.

20 Jan 2018 14:59:16
ha ha glitch or typo?
supposed to read 'spend big' DR.

20 Jan 2018 20:14:57
I read we will loan him back till the end of the season.

21 Jan 2018 18:49:33
What you are saying is totally correct DR but not every player develops into a coutinho, there will always be an element of risk with the youngsters e. g. Depay, zaha, shaw, Walcott they all looked like world beaters as kids.

22 Jan 2018 11:44:37
Walcotts goal ratio is more or less the same as Coutinho, with more sub appearences too.

22 Jan 2018 18:34:30
You need to understand that we don’t spend money. Is a new stadium going to turn us into a spending power? No it’s making sure we don’t get taken over by clubs like West Ham.
We haven’t got owners like other clubs. Whether you agree or not about them running the club properly we are a feeder club to the huge clubs.
Obviously feeling optimistic.

23 Jan 2018 12:54:06
30m on Sissoko, 38m on Sanchez. 30m Lamela. - Of course we spend money.

23 Jan 2018 17:41:54
Actually Sanchez was £42m and we also signed Llorente £12m, and Aurier £23m. The season before we spent £30m on Sissoko, Janssen £17m and N’koudou £11m. The season before that we signed Alderweireld £11.5m, Wanyama £11m, Son £18m and N’Jie £8.2m.

The problem is we sold Walker £45m, Wimmer £18m, Fabio £2.8m. The season before we sold Carroll £4.5m, Pritchard £8m, Mason £10m and achadli £13m. The season before we sold Townsend £12m, Lennon £4m, Soldado £10m, Chiriches £4.5m, Stambouli £6m, Kaboul £3m, Capoue £5.7m, Holtby £4m and Paulinho £9.9m.

The point is we are buying and selling well but our NET investment in players has been nothing short of SHOCKING. If we are to challenge in the FA Cup, Top 4 League and Champions League, then we need to invest much more.

25 Jan 2018 19:27:32
my issue is that we seem to spread our available funds for investment over a few players, to minimise risk. instead of purchasing the right player (s)

the ethos seems to be risk averse, transfers that don't work out are off set by the ones that do, financially. if we had only invested a little more on the players that didn't work out.

Look at Jansen, Sissoko, Soldado, Fabio, Nkoudou, Njie as examples. decent fees spent but if we had only amalgamated two of any of those fees into 1 player. or even purchased 4 from their fees.

you only need to look at our players purchased and sold to see that we have quite a lot of traffic since Levy took the reigns.

that I believe is the fundamental issue.

19 Jan 2018 16:27:51
Alderweireld has signed a new contract.

Agree12 5Disagree

19 Jan 2018 18:08:19
I hope that's true Ellis as he's the best defender in the league and possibly Europe, I was worried as a few gooners said he wants to join Arsenal.

19 Jan 2018 18:52:17
It is.

19 Jan 2018 19:15:54
It’s great news, more follow. would like one in for Sissoko then pretty happy.
why would he join Arsenal when he could probably choice any club in Europe.

24 Jan 2018 19:40:35
*should of really put agreed to rather than signed, jumped the gun a bit there hoping it would get done quickly.

29 Jan 2018 17:09:53
He hasn’t signed a new contract. Stop chatting.

18 Jan 2018 23:42:22
Rumours are that spurs will be signing Lucas Moura from psg for around 35 million, I must admit I don't know much about him as a player.

Agree2 4Disagree

19 Jan 2018 18:52:47
Brazilian Theo Walcott.

19 Jan 2018 21:03:17
Well he can stay well away then Ellis.

16 Jan 2018 07:52:08
It seems this window is dead as the scouting team are focussing on younger prospects.

Malcom is the only focus and a potential target, but others are interested and the price is looking prohibitive.

Brereton of Nottingham Forest is a genuine target as future backup for Kane. Potential with a loan back deal, but hardly going to help our charge on three fronts.

Maxwell Cornet of Lyon is a prospect for the future. Offers pace and attacking flair across the forward line, but with Eriksen, Son, Dele Alli, Lamela he is unlikely to get many opportunities.

Our ambition is TOP 4, we are in the Champions League and FA Cup. Sadly Levy wants to invest like a mid table team and this needs to change fast.

Agree4 6Disagree

16 Jan 2018 18:57:22
Maxwell is not coming to us Oracle.

16 Jan 2018 18:57:57
Or Malcom.

16 Jan 2018 21:42:32
My point is even if they did, they are not the level required to win silverware. One or two of them could sign but they are prospect for the future as much as Winks, Edwards, Carter-Vickers and others already at the Club.

14 Jan 2018 22:50:33
As anyone else noticed that we always hit the ground running at the start of the season, then the hard training sessions kick in we loose a little focus . Get a few bad results

Then before Christmas we seem to sort our self's out and gain momentum and a second wind .

Similar to last season, we have after Southampton a few big season defining games, we took maximum points last season in similiar run of fixtures.

Spurs seem to have got a second wind they seem fitter and look as they are growing in confidence with a togetherness and team spirit fighting for each other .

Just at the right time and a few returning from injury .

Seems similiar to last season hope we kick on get Steele resilient and unstoppable .

Agree2 2Disagree

14 Jan 2018 23:59:38
We have noticed the facts you quoted, but unlike last year we fortunately have the Champions League and FA Cup to contend with.

The problem is this creates a need for a deeper squad which we are sadly missing. It looks like Sessegnon is up from grads if we strike. Alfie Mawson is easy to buy yet lowly Watford seem ahead of us in the queue. Mousa Dembele looks to be Brighton bound from Celtic, surely a talent we should be signing and letting Llorente go.

Lucas Moura looks set for Manchester United over Spurs. Zaha has made it clear he is staying at Crystal Palace. Barkley has gone to Chelsea and it looks quiet as Aubameyang seems Arsenal bound.

We really need to strike when there are clear talents we need to push on all these fronts. Mousa Dembele, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ryan Sessegnon and Alfie Mawson would have given us the squad to challenge 3 fronts.

We have the cash and could flog Janssen and a couple of peripheral players like Onomah.

15 Jan 2018 19:56:16
i agree we need a couple of outstanding players as we are fragile in certain areas . irony would be transfer window shuts and kane gets an injury , llorette = season over.
