By far the best video of Son. 14 minutes of the kid's passing, finishing, long-shots and dribbles. I think he's gonna be beast lads:

Sup fam! I've been mulling over this and I wanted to hear your thoughts on it. I've been looking at the squad and been wondering who will be our leader on the field?

I've never really been a fan of a keeper being the captain (besides Buffon, Casillas, Schmeichel, Kahn; I believe all have been captains), because they are not out in the field, playing for control with the others and the players can not always feel their presences. I know that in their own way, they can influence the team, especially if the keeper is exceptionally good; providing the outfield players a boost in confidence to play their game.

Do not get me wrong, Hugo Lloris is great and a good captain, he just does not have that presence like those keepers I mentioned. He seems reserved and laid back. Friendly. There is nothing wrong with that, but sometimes, we need that kind of person who will rally the troops when things do not go right. With our boys in the past, whenever things aren't going our way and we are losing, heads went down a lot of times. No one was giving a pep talk on the field, rallying to push on. Lloris and most definitively not Vertonghen, do not seem like those kind of leaders to me, I might be wrong.

This is one of the things I hope will sprout out of someone... That undying contagious determination and leadership skill, to not give up until the very end. I think we would benefit from having an out field leader, a hard assed captain like Patrick Veira, Roy Keane, John Terry, Raul, Totti, Puyol, Maldini, and my two favorite captains (biased view but true leaders in their own right), Ledley King and Javier Zanetti. Someone who will lead by example all the time on the field. If a player acted out of line the captain put them back in line; if something went wrong the captain helped get the teams head straighten back on. I know this did not always work, but they had the presence the team and fans could feel and respect of the them all.

I look at our squad now, and I do not really see anyone who can/might step up, take the captaincy and LEAD. I might be wrong, and I hope I am. I would like in our defense or midfield to be emerge as a captain, I do not know why I prefer those positions, but I do. I do not see Drier, Kane, Rose, Walker, Bentaleb, Dembele, Erikson... Anyone... being that leader.

What do you guys think? Who do you think in our young squad could step up and become a leader?
+1
Walker
+1
The thing is, I do not see Walker being that either. His head goes down just like the others. I have hardly seen him have that die hard attitude.
+1
Dier, Bentaleb and Kane would be great captains, but for now I think Vertonghen and Lloris are our best bets
Yeah, for now those two are, but they do not seem like the captain material that would push the team on through thick and thin.

Do you see anyone who can step up and make the arm band theirs? Have you seen anything in any of our own homegrown players, which suggests that the potential is their? It would be nice if one of those guys do step up, I hope so, I just do not see it yet.
It really doesn't matter too much who wears the captain's armband. It's more of a front figure for the team, an honour and who should already have his teammates' respect. Anyone can step up to be leaders on the pitch, and the lack of it last season was a bit of a problem. That's where Vertonghen disappointed the most. He has to show himself as a leader and communicator. He doesn't suddenly transform into it because he's given the armband. Therefore, Lloris is the most obvious choice while others should prove themselves, in every match and every day.
+2
Not many people have spoken about this, but again im referencing the same point from our Everton game; when it got into the second half, Dier had already been booked and again made a foul, the referee decided not to discipline him but wanted a word to tell him to calm down, the ref then spoke to Vertonghen and as the commentator pointed out, Vertonghen was the nominated captain even though Lloris was wearing the armband that match. So even by default, Vertonghen is the obvious captain on the field and he was the one chosen to get our team under control and avoid any unnecessary bookings or sendings off.
I know Vertonghen doesn't have the complete traits to be a real 'captain' with his attitude sometimes being a fault: he is the one guy I've always wanted to captain our team. He is an unbelievable defender on his day and he has great skill going forward too. He did all of this in his debut season but since then his loyalty and attitude have been brought into question a couple of times and we are always left wondering whether he can be at his full potential. But he was captain of Ajax, a winning team, he obviously has captain material, he just needs to focus.

In saying all this, he made an amazing solo run last game from our own half, bale-esque run all the way into the box and even finished the move with a shot on target. If he was fully influencing the team as a captain, a display like that would have roused our team into at least getting a couple of goals. Nevertheless i still maintain my faith that Vertonghen can really hit his potential that he promised from his debut season. Especially now that he's got a fellow international compatriot as a partner in centre defence, hopefully he will up his game. I want to see more of the Vertonghen that played when we had Bale in the team. The SuperJan needs to return.
So Northstream, are you saying the armband should not be given to someone who shows the determination that can inspire the squad?

I agree with you that it should be given to someone who is a figure for the team. But not just anyone can step up and be a leader, all the time. Some people can not take the pressure and responsibility that comes with it. Like you said, I hope I am getting it right, you can not just put an arm band on someone and they become a leader.

Like you said and I agree with you, Vertonghen was a disappointment. I had hopes he would be a leader, but he is not. Lloris does not seem like the kind of communicator that could rally the squad in a game. He seems very soft spoken and introverted to communicate in a way, it has its perks.

But a general on the field, I believe, would be what we need. That is why I am hoping someone in the squad does prove them self on and off the field. But who would that be? Because I do not see it, yet.
@FAyJay, I haven't watched the full game so I didn't see the Dier and Vert interaction. And that is what I am saying. For a time, Vert seemed to be the one I thought would take the captaincy, but his attitude, dip in-form and loyalty to the team has made it hard for me to take him as a reliable figure for the team. Sure, when he is running full throttle, he would make a good captain.

Since, he is not it. Who could be?
Bad attitude, sulking and losing his cool when it gets heated certainly doesn't cry out captain fantastic material. We all know who I'm talking about, no need even to mention his name.

What I was saying before is that a true leader will be a leader on the pitch, regardless if he's the one picked to lead the team out or not. Lloris is probably our most established international performer. He has the respect from players, coaches and fans alike. That's why he's been given the honour.

Our last great captain would be Michael Dawson. Even when Ledley King was our no.1 Dawson rallied for the team whether King played or was out injured. While Dawson later fell down the food chain a bit and after his own injuries struggled to keep up, he was certainly still one to count on to lead by example and giving it all for the shirt. Kaboul made some good effort as well but never reached Dawson's level as a leader.
@Northstream
Sure, Lloris gets it from what he has attained for being as good as he is. No qualms about that. However, does he lead like Dawson did? Like you said, Daws did rally and lead by example for the team. That is what I believe the team is missing, that quality. If we had more of that kind of mindset within the team, we would be better for it. We wouldn't be as Spursy as we have been so far.

Maybe in time, Kane could be that in time, because it seems like he has it in him, but he is still young and doesn't need to add more weight on his shoulders. Besides him, I do not really see it in any other player. Maybe that quality will show itself eventually. I'm just wondering who it will be.
+1
Yes, that's what I said last season. One of our main problems was that we didn't have a natural leader out on the pitch. I'm not sure if we have anyone capable of stepping up this season either.

Son just got a hattrick against Laos lol

"Alli's 6ft 2in frame makes him an imposing presence in midfield, and his playing style is characterised by tireless box-to-box running. Alli was only on the pitch for 25 minutes in Spurs' 1-1 draw with Leicester, but Premier League tracking data shows he made more high-intensity sprints (34) than six of Tottenham's starters that day, including the man he replaced, Erik Lamela."


Excited to see if/when Alli will get his first start for Spurs.

Club Statement – Summer Transfer Window

The following is a statement from Daniel Levy about the summer transfer window.

“At the end of last season Mauricio was clear what we needed to do and what we certainly shouldn’t do”, said Daniel. “He wanted to streamline the squad, strengthen it and retain the ability to develop the talent we already had. Importantly, we also needed to keep our key players.



“That meant reducing the squad number, improving the team defensively and adding exciting attacking forwards. It also meant that if we couldn’t secure the few key targets we wanted, we wouldn’t just add others. And we needed to keep the space for our current players to flourish.”

This summer we moved early to secure our targets and were able to conclude the acquisitions of Dele Alli from Milton Keynes (to join us this July), Toby Alderweireld from Atletico Madrid (on loan last season at Southampton), Kieran Trippier from Burnley and Kevin Wimmer from Cologne.

We went on to add Clinton Njie from Olympique Lyonnais and Heung-Min Son from Bayer Leverkusen.

Aaron Lennon, Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Etienne Capoue, Lewis Holtby, Benjamin Stambouli, Vlad Chiriches and Younes Kaboul departed the Club over the summer months and we wish them well for the future.

Mauricio said, “I look at our squad and I know we have worked well to shape it. Strengthening our defence was a priority given the number of goals we conceded last season. Toby, Kevin and Kieran add depth and quality.

“In Dele, Sonny and Clinton we have three young, fast and exciting players who can play in several different attacking positions, giving us good options.

“All of them had impressive seasons in their respective leagues last season and we are excited about their potential alongside that of our current players.

“I have been very clear that we would only add players that we felt would improve us and if any one player was not possible then I prefer we do not add for the sake of it. Much has been said about us only having one recognised striker in Harry – I don’t accept this at all – the positional play of today’s forwards means it’s too simplistic to look for goals from any one position – playing a fluid style means players switch. Also we secured Sonny and Clinton in the knowledge that we may not be adding any other forward.”



Daniel added, “We have never, as a Club, spoken about another team’s players and I am not about to do so now. However, I do want to make a few general points regarding transfers.

“Firstly, there is hardly a transfer concluded across Europe which doesn’t include staged payments. This is particularly so when significant amounts such as £20m-£30m are involved – players don’t come cheaply these days.

“Secondly, we do not make anything personal. None of the proposals, discussions or negotiations we undertake involve any personal elements or ego – everything we do is in the interest of what is best for our Club.

“Thirdly, we never make anything public, particularly in the best interests of the players involved. Making aspects such as transfer requests public is wholly disrespectful to a player.

“Our pragmatic player trading has been important in the way we have run the business of the Club and in getting us to the position where we have now been able to start work on a new stadium – the one thing that has the ability to take this Club to the next level of competitiveness. I make no apologies for being ambitious for our Club and looking to deliver future success for our fans.

“This season,” underlined Mauricio, “we start with a combination of our own players who have come through the ranks and players that bring skills and experience from other leagues. Most importantly, it’s a squad of players with heart – it’s a squad I’m proud to field.”

You beat me to posting it! I love the last line of this article, it highlights what I wanted to say about the Everton game; where it was clear that our players actually care about our performances and visibly show emotion on the field. We might have missed some key targets, but the difference with this year is that we do have a lot of youth who now have a great chance to prove themselves.
+1
It's also good to see that they're obviously aware of the criticism from fans and find it worthwhile to respond.

Interesting ...
+1
I completely disagree with that article. He's tried looking super clever there by putting up some stats, but has embellished totally. N'Jie played alongside Fekir supporting Lazcatte in an incredibly deadly threesome up front. They interchanged positions a lot, but N'Jie is a wide forward/winger than a striker. Even Poch in his interview at one point that N'Jie can play there but isn't a natrual at it. I think it is after the stoke game.

I like N'Jie, but some people are putting forth a very weird picture of who he is, and since so few know who he really is... they're getting away with it.
+1
He is our mystery man this season. I'm eager to see what he can offer to this team.
+2
My team vs Sunderland (assuming everyone is fit):

----------------------------Lloris---------------------------------
-----------------Alde---------------------Verty--------------------
Trippier----------------------Dier-----------------------------Rose
-----------------------Bentaleb------------------------------------
-Son---------------------------Dembele-----------------------Eriksen
----------------------------Kane------------------------------------

Tripper, Son and Eriksen to replace Mason, Walker and Chadli (our 3 worst performers from Everton's game). Kane shouldn't yet be dropped, especially as he's not fully match-fit. With Eriksen back, and Tripper coming back into the team, he should get a couple of goals. One shouldn't be too hasty to drop strikers, as we all know how these dry patches are inevitable.

I think Dier and Bentaleb had a great game vs Everton, as we dominated control of the game. The lack of goals was due to Chadli's lack of involvement and Mason/Kane's poor finishing. I would say it would be right to wait until cup games before starting Alli/Pritchard/N'Jie/Wimmer although I'm open to disagreement.

I haven't really written about my thoughts from the Everton game, but again I was happy with what I saw. The reasons for our lack of goals this season:

1) Our Attacking Midfielders have been poor (excluding Dembele) and haven't been offering much at all in the way of direct runs to Kane when he drops deep. Chadli and Lamela have been pretty woeful in my eyes (the former more than the latter), and neither of them should start against Sunderland. Whoever we've picked alongside Dier as a B2B midfielder has also been out-of-form. Bentaleb was shocking against United and poor when he came on as a sub vs Stoke and Mason has had two poor games in a row.

2) Kane has been out of form. His decision-making has been poor, his touch has been heavy, long-distance shooting has been weak and finishing inaccurate. I know he hasn't had much service from our Attacking Midfielders or our Full-Backs (I'll go on to that) but he's either low on confidence, over-pressured or just lazy. If he has a poor game against Sunderland, then I would start Son or N'Jie ahead of him against Palace as after all, competition is key to performance.

3) Our Full-Backs have not been doing what is required of them. Walker has had one good game, but apart from that has been terrible. He has delivered 1 accurate cross in 4 games which is a shocking return. I think Poch would be crazy not to pick Tripper against Sunderland (most accurate crosses in Europe's top 5 leagues?!?!?!). Davies has been steady, but underwhelming offensively (apart from that crazy run for Chadli's goal against Stoke) but with Rose coming back to fitness, I think we can be confident that this all will change. I hope people realise just how vital full-backs our in Poch's system. They have to be the fittest players in the squad as whenever our Wingers receive the ball near to the sideline, our Full-Backs have to be bombing forward in order to draw the opposition's Full-Backs and create space for our Inverted Wingers. A perfect example of our complete failing in this was against Leicester. The reason that whole match was a disaster was because Davies and Walker were making no effort to draw players and create space. I know it was hot, and that's not to create excuses for Chadli (who was terrible) but I noticed this so many times with Lamela, which is why I was supportive of him after that game and critical of Walker.

Apart from this, I have been very happy with how we've looked. Jan and Toby have looked fantastic (with a few shaky spells), Dier has really grown into his role as a CDM, and Dembele has looked like a bulldozer again. Moose has been our best player so far because he has done wonders with the very little space that has been available to him (because of our Full-Backs' lack of movement). Add that to the fact that he has already had more shots on target than all of last season and it starts to tell a promising story.

With regards to the transfer window, it seems like Pearce has been a stubborn prick with regards to Berahino, probably because he wants to keep his reputation as a fierce (dogmatic) negotiator (bastard) in the presence of Levy. It's a shame we didn't get Saido, but in January he'll have 18 months on his contract and I think we should go back in for him (I don't agree with people calling him a snake. He's been quiet throughout this whole process and it's Pearce who's made him seem like a dick to the whole West Brom fanbase. He wanted to play for Tottenham, and who can blame him?). And for people who are saying we only have one striker, please don't be silly. Son is a striker for his national team, and was only prevented from being one at Leverkusen because Kiesling is there. N'Jie is a striker. He can be played on the wings, but the vast majority of the times he started for Lyon last season and came on as a sub, he was a second striker, not a winger. Let's not also forget that Coulthirst has been fantastic for U21s and was very impressive in pre-season. Everyone just chill the f**k out basically!

With regards to a DM, I can't see why people are moaning! We don't want another Capoue/Stambouli situation, I'd say it is better to wait until January so we can reassess Wanyama. Panic buys and a lack of thinking is what cost us to bring in so many players who flopped. We need to have patience with transfers, much like Arsenal have. Wenger is building a team very slowly because he only wants people who are perfect for his system (how many flops have Arsenal had in recent years? Not very many at all). Poch is similar. He doesn't feel pressure from the fans (he learnt his lesson from Fazio and Stambouli) and is willing to wait which I have a lot of respect for.

So, in conclusion, lets get behind the team. We need to tamper down our expectation (I can't believe more people aren't ecstatic with a 5th place finish and cup final last season) and remember where we used to be not so long ago. Let's support Kane, support Bentaleb, support Dier. Let's trust in them, recognize how bloody young they are, and let's have patience, because once the few cogs that I listed above are sorted, the machine will start working and we will see goals added to what has been some fantastic performances.

COME ON YOU SPURS!
+2
Other than a slight tweak to the formation of starting Dier and Bentaleb as 2 CDMs that cover wide areas and pushing Trippier and Rose even further forward, I have absolutely nothing that I disagree with there. Must be a first, Paddy :D

I don't really think N'Jie is a striker though. He's a wide forward/secondary striker, and can't play a holding forward all that well. Kinda like Defoe. Son though, can hold the ball and distribute it. His height also helps with lobbed crosses/gk.

I'm far from pissed about the end result of the transfer window, we've addressed most of our concerns. One or two more tweaks to go and we'll have sorted out something that's been plaguing us for the last 3 years now. It isn't like we're playing like crap every game. We've dominated almost every game and just need to add a little more to it. Patience is a virtue.
+1
Good assessment there Paddy, agree with it all pretty much.

One thing I wanted to bring up after the Everton game was the frustration the players all showed; especially the hostility towards the ref whenever he gave them a foul against us. Despite Dier looking like a 6ft baby throwing a tantrum everytime the ref stopped the game, I love the fact that our players are showing some emotion and passion for the team. Even though it was a disappointing 0-0 match, at least throughout the ordeal we could see the players visibly frustrated. There was even a moment when Dier is throwing a tantrum and screaming, and Chadli (I believe it was Chadli, someone correct me if I'm wrong) is in the background slamming the ball against the floor after a foul had been called against us.

Add to this the post-match interviews which show every player being disappointed and believing we should have come away with a win. I do believe that there is a good mentality being built at the club, and I hope a winning mentality is grown out of it.

+1
Should have read this before I posted that above about njie

Great stuff paddy
+1
I posted my post and then saw this too. Lol. Negative * Negative = Positive? :D
I only really disagree about Lamela. He needs to be a starter to be allowed to show what he can contribute. He's not a great substitute to just be thrown on when we're on our heels or (to quote myself) when things have already gone tits up. I'd like to see him be given a couple of starts to prove himself. However, I can see that Pochettino will keep playing Chadli (who I think should be dropped), Eriksen is coming back and Alli, N'Jie and Son are all lined up to be introduced into the starting XI. So we might not see Lamela starting until our various cup games.
Disappointing end to the window, looked like we put all our eggs in to the basket trying to sign berahino when we perhaps shouldve had a backup signing or like people have said not sell soldado till we had a replacement.

Lack of depth in midfield with dembele and eriksen injured is worrying. Wouldve loved us to sign an experianced defencive mid.

Really tough season ahead if we want top 6.
+1
I guess there wouldn't have been enough chances to sell Soldado if we waited, and he really wanted to go. It was embarrassing enough for all parties already. Dembele's injury wasn't serious, and even then, Wistel's statements had me wondering towards the end...
+1
Yeah the soldado deal did have to be done, i wouldve preferred us sign a player like perez from newcastle as a back up plan to berahino but couldve still done a job if we didnt get him. With kane injured depth in the goals department is not good. Good thing about midfield is we have alot of young talent coming through that will get more game time.
+1
Here comes the son :) I am sure we'll be back in the market for a striker in the winter window regardless.
+1
Really disappointed we didn't get another midfielder in on the last day. I think we will suffer for that this season. Mason, Bentaleb, and Dier is a very inexperienced trio and they seem to be our starting three.

Pritchard, Carroll, and Dele are in the squad but they have even less experience.
TOby can play in midfield. :P
+1
^ Verts can play in midfield. :p
+1
Key point for us is versatility. Toby played CDM in 2015 in the EPL actually. Every player is being groomed in order to contribute to atleast two roles in the squad. I am a little worried, but we did show a lot of faith in the academy and young players to do what we did. Great signs for any good academy players coming through that chances will surely appear.
+1
Like mag said the good thing coming out of it is is academy players will be given more chances. With any luck it will come at the expence of NOT making the europa league lol
+2
The sign didn't come from his pastor, so he changed to islam and decided to keep collecting his wage without having to play?

"The 31-year-old had been close to joining Aston Villa at the end of July, but stunned Villa officials when, having completed a medical and posed for pictures in the club's shirt, he stalled on the deal by claiming that he wanted a sign from God that it would be the correct move.

Adebayor is understood to have then consulted his pastor over the prospect of moving to the Midlands before finally deciding against the switch, much to the frustration of Villa manager Tim Sherwood."

In addition to this utter nonsense, the plonker wanted 5m apparently, to terminate his contract so he could go to another club and earn double salary for an entire year. Talk about being a money grabbing asswipe.

P.S: I mean nothing against either religion, said in jest (just thought I ought to clarify).
+2
What a prick. Most of us knew he'd be poison, but we still tried hard to back the guy. I don't think I've ever compartmentalized my dislike for anyone and shoved it deep below my subconscious as much as I did with Ade.

Release him without pay and let him sue. I'm sure Levy can find a stipulation or two in his contract that he violated.
+2
What does he have left on his contract? You think he'll be used by Poch? He isn't totally useless.
+1
I don't think he has been registered in the squad so no. I don't want to see that guy play for this team again. Total jerk.
Hans, he is THAT useless. When you live & breathe every single day watching him post s**t SEA stuff & do f**k-all else, you might understand. :P
+1
A year. And I hope I never see him pull on a shirt even in U21 squad. Don't want him anywhere near our young players, influencing them in such rubbish ways.
+1
He makes like 100k a week? He would make half that at West Ham and play every game. All he is really doing is sticking to his contract which a lot of other players get s**t on for doing the opposite.

Harry and Sherwood got the better of him. He does have it in him. And with the lack of options to help out Kane, I would think Poch should at least try and save some of that dead money.
+1
The problem is his attitude. He has a history of undermining managers, and that's not gonna fly with Poch--it's his way or the highway. Whether or not that's a good thing for a manager to be is another thing.

Harry and Tim got the best out of him because they only spent a short time putting up with his BS. Harry, when Ade was on loan and playing for a contract; Tim, when AVB--who froze him out--got sacked. Besides, those two can bullshit their way into a female wash room. Birds of the same feather, the three of 'em.
+1
To reclarify... he wants the entire 100k a week salary up front to cancel his contract with us, and then go earn 50k a week. In effect, he wants to earn 150k a week this year. You want to support that? Sure. Go for it Hans, but that isn't "sticking to his contract". We wanted to find a solution where West Ham paid a part of his salary and we'd compensate the remaining by terminating his contract. He refused and wanted his full salary to leave. There's no other term than money grabbing asshole for guys like that.
+2
To be fair to adebayor. I dont see him being content sitting on the bench all season especially if we are struggling for goals
+1
He didn't accept a move ans we made our intention quite clear by not registering him with the squad. The first player I'll happily boo in my life as a football fan.
