So lads who would you ideally see come in and leave before the end of the window?
+1
If Eriksen goes, which i hope he does, Lo Celso would be a good replacement.
I think we are still short in midfield, so Zaniolo would be great.
An upgrade @ right back would be great, I like Atal and Max Aaron's would also be a good option.
A young striker to push Kane would be brilliant.

Outs
Vorm
Llorente
Eriksen
Trippier
Wanyama
Lamela

In
Ndombeastmode
Lo Celso
Zaniolo
Atal
Young Striker/wing forward
OUT: Kane, Alli, Son, Erikson, Poch :P
that's smart Nvj :)
All this talk about Rose leaving is really worrying. I always saw Sessegnon as an upgrade on Davies, not on Rose! Him leaving will set us back massively. Stay Danny!

I think if we are Sessegnon and no-one else I'd be really happy. He can play LB LW or striker, and with Llorente impressing and Son and Jannsen able to play striker, we're sorted
Out:

Christian Eriksen (He wants out)
Toby Alderweireld (25 mil release clause)
Kieran Trippier (Hinted he was on his way out)
Danny Rose (Levy cashout)
Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama (NDombele upgrade)
Joshua Onomah (Not used)
Georges-Kevin N'Koudou (Not used)
Vincent Janssen (Not used)
Fernando Llorente (Free agent)


In:

Jack Clarke (In/Out)
Tanguy Ndombele (Here)
Giovani Lo Celso (Fingers crossed)
Ryan Sessegnon (Rose replacement)
Dani Ceballos (He's in London)
Mariano Diaz (Kane Backup)
Dani Olmo (Not sure about this guy but Spurs are heavily linked)

too much change weathers. if we can keep Rose and Aldeweireld we should. Eriksen wants to leave so I think he should
I'd love to see Toby stay and hopefully he does. Still 2 weeks left of the release clause though.

Ben Davies just signed a new contract and its looking very likely that Sessegnon is coming.

Rose is now 29 and already stated his desire to leave. If he left for 35+ and Sessegnon joins, I wouldn't loose too much sleep over it.

Although it looks like a lot of change, I can only see Ndombele walking into Poch's starting 11. Possibly Celso if he comes early enough. Davies will play on the right, Toby will be replaced by Sanchez, and Dele/Lamela will replace Eriksen's role.
Erikson is one player I wish Chelsea signs from Spurs. Levy obviously wants at least 60-70m considering how much Chelsea got for Hazard with 1 year left. Madrid might not be ready to spend big as they have already spent 300m.
I think next 2 years will be crucial as you will have some players to be replaced. Rose, Toby, Erikson have all been good for you in past few years. Also in order to fight for all competitions you need to have some backup players. Trippier, Wanyama, Dier can be good squad players.

Love this lad. I rate him higher than Sanchez
Best part is the mumble from Coutinho as he knows he's just been done.

Foyth is great, but he's too much of a liability still to be rated higher than Sanchez. Sanchez is the better and more experienced defender at the moment. Foyth would be a top player once he irons out his mistakes.
see the way I see it, Sanchez makes just as many mistakes.

I definitely see Foyth as the better prospect
Foyth should be given time at RB next year. I want trippier as far away from the club as possible.
+1
Didn't think i would see the day Tottenham signing big players when we can't even afford Zaha.
Here is comes :)
What you guys make of the rumours that Levy had phoned Real Madrid to offer Eriksen to the club. Stated that Levy wanted 150M for Eriksen a year ago and now he is willing to let him go for around 70M because his contract is running out next summer.
That’s called tabloid click bait.

But I would have loved to hear Levy in Spanish on the phone saying medio precio, por favor!
+1
Eriksen seems like hes looking for a move, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was more than just click bait.

Perhaps not true in its entirety of course, but it wouldn't be surprising to hear that Levy is trying to move on a player who no longer wishes to play for us or sign a new contract.

I would actually give Levy props for proactively giving him a gentle boot up the backside towards the exit door after his "come get me plea" to Real Madrid immediately following our Champions League loss.

Worst case is having him leave on a free next year and join a rival for big wages.
Would love to see Isco as part of the deal
Isco swap for Eriksen would honestly be perfect. I feel like Isco is not fitting Real Madrid and someone of his quality needs to start every game if possible, he would get it here and under Poch I can see him reaching his full potential. Eriksen joining Real Mardid would be a good thing for RM as well.
If Erikson doesnt want to stay, Spurs will look to sell him rather than letting him go for FREE. But I dont think Madrid will want to sign him in this summer unless they sell some players. Madrid have already spent 300m. They would first want to offload players like Bale before signing anyone.
Isco would be nice. Ceballos would be better though as a direct replacement in my eyes. Although neither seem interested in leaving Real Madrid which only highlights the fact further that Real Madrid doesn't seem to be in for Eriksen. He doesn't match the profile or calibre of player that Zidane would be looking for anyways.
isco is in a different league to ceballos Fayjay!
Shrewd signing of Jack Clarke from Leeds for 8.5m. Could yet prove to be a masterstroke as he is a very highly rated 18 year old winger. Many Leeds fans surprised that he has been sold, and for less than 10m. Hoping for another Dele Alli gem.
WE'VE GOT HIM!!!! COYS!!!!

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11675/11749003/tottenham-agree-65m-deal-for-lyons-tanguy-ndombele
Holding my breath until the medical is done and I see the bold AIA sprawled across his chest. Luckily Chelsea have a transfer ban so there's no threat from them of a hijacking. The only real suitor left then is an attempt from PSG but I'm confident we got him :P

Great signing and it's exactly what we needed. A nice blend between Dembele/Modric type midfielder.

I'm already excited about what the possible midfield combos could be: a 4-3-3 with Winks, Ndombele, Sissoko would absolutely dominate.



+1
Exactly. With Son Moura and Kane up front. Liverpool showed how successful that model can be. Dele and Eriksen will have to up their game to stay in this team.

The increase in good midfield options means less stress on Eriksen and Alli to drop back into it, so hopefully there will be an upturn in their respective forms. That is if Eriksen is still here next season.
I dont really want Eriksen here if he wants to leave
No hard feelings against the lad, he's been brilliant but it would give our attackers more time to build up interplay relationships
he's not as good as erikson or alli yet imo, still a bit raw, just looks good in highlights.
congrats guys Ndombele is good player will definitely improve the midfield. good luck this year.
+1
he's completely different to Dele and Eriksen. Ndombele is a CM and Dele is only effective as a CF.

Dele has regressed noticeably since his first two seasons. I think his fame has gone to his head. He's started a hat brand and he's apparently completely addicted to fortnite. Starting him in the CL final instead of Lucas was a huge mistake and one I feel literally cost us the match.

Ndombele is gonna be a monster this season. I mean can anyone get past ndombele and Sissoko!?!
+1
and sif don't be bitter that you missed out on him! we both know you'd be going mad if you'd have landed him! This is made rather obvious by the lazy Eriksen and Dele comparison and the equally lazy "just looks good in highlights"
+1
I'm not the one who said Ali and Erikson should be worried about their place, I said they are better than him and he will need to break into the side at someone else's expense.

He's got quality but you can't just go saying he is better than proven premier league players before he's played a single second.

And he's very raw, he looks good in moments but he's not the finished article.
They are better than him at certain things, he's better at others. You can gauge pretty well his all round game by watching the individual highlights against the top teams but whatever happens, he's gonna be a great addition.
Paddy is right though SIF... Eriksen and Alli should worry about their place, because he believes our best front 3 should be Kane Moura Son. Ndombele plays in midfield, and you would not be starting either Alli or Eriksen ahead of him in the middle of the park.

Sissoko was the butt of all footballing jokes when he joined us for a then record fee of 30million in 2015. This year he won our Player of the Season, due in no small part to the injuries that plagued Dier and Wanyama all year, whilst we also lost Dembele in January, this fact alone highlights how badly we needed a player of Ndombele's ilk.

"And he's very raw, he looks good in moments but he's not the finished article." - 22years old and bossed it against Man City and Barcelona in the Champions League. No Brainer.
I know hes good but it will probably take him a couple seasons to settle is all I'm saying. Dont go benching Alli and Erikson just yet. If anyone can make him a beast its pochettino but I do think it will take a little while before he is a nailed in starter. He takes a lot of risks with his dribbles and I can see him giving up possession in bad areas as he learns the league.
Sanchez was our previous record signing at 42m, he was thrown straight into the starting XI. Ahead of Toby Alderweirald - the heralded "best defender in the PL" by some in the previous season.

Ndombele is being signed for a position that has had a hole in it since Dembele left for China. So there will be no time wasting from Poch & levy.

We're not Man U, we can't afford to break our transfer record just to have them slowly integrated into the team or left on the bench... Ndombele will be a starter sooner rather than later, and definitely not 2 bloody years.

+1
amen
We will open next season at home against Aston Villa.
First four fixtures:
Aston Villa (h)
Man City (a)
Newcastle (h)
Arsenal (a)
Not gonna lie lads. I put so much into that champions league run and I'm so so proud of our team but gonna have a little time off for a couple of months.

Will still post about transfers and s**t but yeah, keep this forum going lads. There's a lot of history with this forum and it's wicked that it's still alive. Peace lads, have an awesome summer
+2
Have a good summer mate!

It's going to be a busy summer for Spurs hopefully, so stay tuned! There's not many posters left...
Well that break didn't last long.

Just take a minute and picture a midfield of Sissoko, winks and N-dombele!

Have a good summer too Fayjay mate
Last one of the 2018/19 season from All Action No Plot:

Spurs 0-2 Liverpool: Five Tottenham Talking Points

Well this was a most peculiar anti-climax. Full of effort and yet somehow devoid of urgency, and with excitement and quality levels similarly low on the barometer, the whole thing resembled seeing a balloon being immediately deflated and then simply left lying unattended for another 89 minutes.

Rather than lumber tragically through the seven stages of grief, or find some perceived injustice and rage at it, the sentiment at AANP Towers is therefore one of curious frustration. Given that Liverpool themselves were oddly underwhelming, this ought probably to be listed as a Missed Opportunity, alongside the Leicester season – and yet somehow, the mood is one of philosophical acceptance.

Probably best just to toddle over to the corpse and begin dissecting.

1. The Penalty Decision

Not all will agree – and judging by the high-pitched apoplexy emanating from his larynx, Glenn Hoddle most certainly did not – but I must confess I had little problem with the penalty decision itself.

To clarify, I did not perform any sort of jig of delight – in fact those around me needed to deliver a rigorous prod between the ribs to check that the blood was still flowing, such was the horror-stricken, frozen chill with which I reacted – but I did follow the logic of the sturdy fellow making the call. Although the ball bounced off chest first, it did then receive an inadvertent stroke from the incoming arm of Sissoko.

Worse crimes have undoubtedly been perpetuated within the vicinity of the 18-yard rectangle during the history of the game, but I understood why, in that situation, a jury might convict.

Just a dashed shame – if quintessentially, absurdly Tottenham – that it happened within thirty seconds of the start of the biggest game in our history.

2. Best Laid Plans vs First-Minute Penalty

More of a concern was the impact of that early farce upon the best-laid plans of Our Glorious Leader. According to the newswires, Pochettino’s three-week preparations had included inviting the players to plant their feet on hot coals (a strategy that, if you ask me, carries an inherent flaw, given that these chaps’ feet are the most important dashed parts of them), breaking arrows with their necks and all manner of other eyebrow-raising sorcery. Frankly it struck me that he might have had a little too much preparation time on his hands.

Alas, the one circumstance for which he presumably had not prepared was the concession of a penalty in the opening minute. One sympathises, for why would he?

And in fact, our lot reacted to this decidedly unseemly new set of circumstances with admirable stiffening of the upper lip and some neat and tidy interplay around halfway.

The problem with the early goal was not so much its effect upon our heroes as its effect upon Liverpool. It meant that for the remaining 89 minutes they did not need to take any sort of risk, or show any sort of forward intent that would allow even a whiff of an opening behind them. They were content to strangle the life out of us, and pretty much did just that.

3. The Kane Selection

Our Glorious Leader had made the reasonable point that hindsight would tell whether his team selection would go down as masterstroke or clanger, so naturally enough the knives are out in some quarters. All of which places me in a terrifically delicate spot, as Poch, having presumably pored over these very pages in recent days, rather scarily opted for the precise team and formation for which I had been marching around town campaigning in the past week or two.

Kane undoubtedly had fairly minimal effect upon proceedings, finally threatening around the peripheries in the final twenty or so, without ever eking out – or having eked for him – that half a yard that would have allowed him a decent pot at goal.

However, at the risk of incurring the wrath of the better half of North London, I do not think our general bluntness was much to do with him, for the chap was barely given a touch of the ball by his chums in the opening hour or so.

He might have been in the form of his life and it would not have mattered, because our build-up play, particularly in the first half, was thoroughly bogged down by the time we hit the final third (almost as if the players were sinking beneath the weight of tactical instruction, which rather makes one wonder).

Even in hindsight I am still not particularly convinced that starting Lucas instead would necessarily have been the solution, for sniper-quality though his finishing was against Ajax, his involvement in build-up play was nothing about which to ring the church bells, and when he was eventually introduced last night his impact was neither here nor there.

The problem struck me as not so much to do with Kane’s fitness or the absence of Lucas, as the dearth of creativity and service from the ranks behind them.

4. Eriksen, The Selected Scapegoat

At such times as these I feel legally obliged to identify a scapegoat.

With Liverpool content to allow us the ball and take their chances as a defensive unit, plenty of onus was placed upon the assorted size nines in our midfield. We found ourselves in desperate need of some wit and ingenuity, someone who could make use of ample possession in midfield, and boast both the vision to pick a defence-splitting pass and the technique also to deliver it.

In short we needed Christian Eriksen.

The opportunity could not have been better made for him if it had taken him aside beforehand and measured him for size. This was the precise scenario that Mother Nature had had in mind when she fashioned him all those years ago, and the stage was that for which one would expect the true greats of the game to don their capes and leap into action.

But cometh the hour, Eriksen had little to offer that dropped the jaw and made the heart skip a beat or two.

It’s a source of some pretty ripe debate in lilywhite circles. The chap’s ability is not in question – he produces some silky stuff of which most teammates simply aren’t capable. The issue here at AANP Towers is that he is something of a Match of the Day player: his best bits make the highlights reel, and come 10.30pm on a Saturday night he can look pretty spectacular. But roll up and watch the whole 90 minutes, and too often he does too little to effect things, much less boss an entire match. Last night was a case in point.

By contrast, Winks and Sissoko – neither of whom anyone of sound mind and teetotal disposition would ever suggest were better players than Eriksen – did more at least to attempt to inject a little vim and energy into our midfield play.

5: Clinical Finishing (And Lack Thereof)

Whatever the virtues or otherwise of Eriksen’s performance, it seemed that, like me, the players were labouring under the misapprehension that clear-cut chances would simply materialise automatically, because this was the Champions League 2019 and frankly that’s what has tended to happen. This time however, we were a little too patient and passive for our own good.

By around the 70-minute mark the memo to get heads down and dig out a goal had evidently reached all in lilywhite, and there was an urgency to our play in the final third. The Liverpool goalkeeper was even having to get his gloves dirty, as our heroes stumbled upon the novel idea of trying an occasional, polite shot at goal.

Alas and alack and woe upon woe, we did not actually create one decent chance throughout the whole desperate affair. Instead, we needed to be at our clinical best to take advantage of whatever scraps and glimmers of opportunities came our way.

In short, we needed to produce the sort of clinical finish from one of those half-chances that Divock Origi did at the other end, at the death, summoning the ghost of Lineker in the Italia ’90 Semi-Final to turn a sniff of a chance into a goal.

But where Origi caught his shot as sweetly as a front-foot cover drive at Lord’s, Sonny and Lucas did not quite make the clean connection that makes the heart skip a beat and young ladies swoon; and Dele’s chipped effort was rather cruelly made to look a heck of a lot closer to hitting the top corner than it actually did, by that most wretched and evil prankster, the Deceptive Camera Angle.

And that was that. The whole Champions League campaign has been, until this point absolutely riotous fun, so warm applause and stiff drinks are deserved all round. Just a shame that the finale was such an oddly damp squib, but such is life I suppose.
+5
Congratulations to Liverpool first of all, if anyone was gonna beat us in the final, I'm glad it's them.

Tonight I think we showed great maturity. We dominated the centre of the park and Liverpool didn't have a sniff. Our attacking players let us down but we can't legislate for how unlucky the opening minute was for us.

We should have stuck with the players that got us to the final. Dele didn't deserve to start and Kane shouldn't have started. How we could drop the guy that scored a hatrick in a champions league semi final is beyond me... Winks should never have come off and Llorente, Lamela and Moura should have had much more involvement.

Anyway, not bad going from never being in the champions league, to getting into the champions league, to last 16 and then the final the last year! It's a good time to be a spurs fan. Up the lilywhites! COYS!!!
+6
unlucky sure, but was it a penalty to begin with?
+6
Spurs have been so impressive and inspiring this season! I fully expect y’all to be right there with us challenging city especially with poch dipping into the transfer market. Really hope he stays, he’s a brilliant manager and it’s only a matter of time before he brings something home. Cheers!
+1
Winks was probably running on empty when he came off.
+1
yeah of course it wasn't a penalty. But that's obvious
+1
You have to start your best players for the biggest game of the year. Kane had to start in my eyes, but I do agree it was harsh seeing Moura on the bench.

Disappointing end but there is glory in this loss. It was a great run and I'm proud of the boys!

Very much looking forward to next season with the new stadium and hopefully some fresh faces.

COYS!!



\\congrats reds

The way we set up and played we actually looked the better side. Even though Kane didn't come to many clear cut chances, we still had him to spearhead our attack. Many Spurs fans complain that Moura should have started instead. What they don't consider is that we could have been worse off, instead of losing with was fairly narrow margins we could have lost 4-0 or 5-0. If that had happened everyone would have questioned why Kane didn't start. As I said below, the one I really missed out there was Lamela.
+2
I would have played Moura instead of Dele!

It was madness to drop Moura for this game. Absolute madness
