Spurs official - We have reached agreement with Italian side Genoa for the transfer of Yago Falque.
24 y/o and only made one appearance for us in the Prem.

Good luck to him at Genoa, just wasn't good enough to make the grade at Spurs.

For 4m, this coincides with the purchase of Eric Dier. Good business going on at Spurs, selling a player who is surplus to strengthen our weakest area.

Spurs are getting stronger!
I think Spurs will have a great season.

Good manager, strong team.

Liverpool vs Tottenham should be a cracker ;)
So @spursofficial has announced our signing of Dier (still subject to medical). This is a totally unexpected but excellent swoop for us! Dier is 6'3 and strong in the air, young and promising. Hopefully he'll be integrated into the squad in rotation during cup games, and be around 4th in rotation for CB.

This also indicates that Poche is confident in our first team choices...Unless there's another CB signing in the works, Jan/Kaboul/Vlad are our top 3 choices at center back.
I'm happy with the choices,think now is the time to let daws go,he's always been a favourite of line but I think he's gone downhill in the last few seasons,would be really sad to see him go though.

Btw I didn't realisse he's 6'3 didn't seem that tall by the pics
Is he better than Caulker?
Size wise they are just about the same - both 6'3 and about the same weight. Caulker is 2 years older and has EPL experience while Dier does not. Other than that I'm in the dark.

Considering we bought him at 4m and he's been a professional at Sporting since 2010, he's a very interesting prospect. Here's a guardian write up all about him and his move: http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/jul/31/eric-dier-tottenham-sporting-lisbon

I'm not sure what to expect, but I am excited!
I know they rated highly at Sporting, he's seems like he's got the right attitude to become successful. Good to see Poch bringing in young players, I'm excited to see what this kid can do!
Of the general consensus that this kid is exciting purely because he is young, British and plied his trade abroad.

Through Isnotfish's guardian link, the bit I like is the fact that his parents moved back to England in 2010, but he remained in order to continue his football, and eventually got moved into the first team in 2013, and now with 2 (half) seasons abroad, he is moving back to the Premier League.

I have every faith in Poch to get the best out of this kid and make him a future England star. His head seems to be in the right place, and he takes his development seriously. Good attitude from the lad, hope he has a good skill set to match.
congrats on Dier he's a fantastic signing for you guys!
Is he? I have heard reports ranging from the new beckenbauer and he is a bit s**t(phrase of the week :P ) from a guy who is a Sporting supporter(I think)
Have no idea who he is
However he is, welcome to Spurs Eric Dier!
So the signing of Eric Dier looks to be happening. Good promising Centre Back. Thoughts?
If it is a Daws replacement then that will do I guess. He has looked good the couple times I have seen him play.

Verts
Kaboul
Vlad
Dier
Velj
Fryers
Capoue.

Its not bad depth at all
+1
If Kaboul stays fit he is going to a future legend for Spurs. Obvious leadership, very strong, very fast and his decision-making seems to have improved since his injury.
So is it only young good Englishmen that play in England that cost stupid money?lol

Anyway,don't think I could be in a position to comment on him,only heard of him today
It's official: https://twitter.com/SpursOfficial/status/494931985979432960

http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/dier-move-agreed-310714/
Official subject to medical yay!

He's young, got loads of potential, english, and cost 4m. Noice. He's also decent enough to be 4th/5th for depth, so we don't have to rely on Senior Citizen Dawson.

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9401857/contract-news-tottenham-left-back-danny-rose-signs-new-five-year-deal

Not best pleased about this one as I don't think Rose makes the grade being 24 years old already. But hopefully Pochetino can get the best out of him yet, especially with the introduction of Ben Davies. Should do well competing together for that LB spot.
Good news. I think Rose is capable of being a very good left back and if he doesn't perform well the contract means we can get a decent chunk of cash for him.

Yeah I think it's good,hopefully we can finally get shot of Wootton now that we have 2 decent Lbs for the next possible 5 or 6 providing they can progress
We need to stop acting like players peak at 22. There is still obviously room for improvement and time for it as well. If he's 28 and not any better than fine but we all need to stop acting like 24 is peak level
+3
Ekotto
Agreed Frank, well said
Everton have bought lukaku for 28 Mil,really good deal for then
Incredible.

I feel like we missed out big on this one.
We have more important areas to work on than attack. 28M would've been too much for us.
We were ready to spend that much on Schniederlin and J-Rod. All we *NEED* to sign is a strong option CB. Everything else is a bonus.
+1
Nah I wouldn't say we missed out,he does lack a bit for the very top level imo,but could become a major world star
Schneiderlin and J-rod would fit our system- but that's a whole other argument I'm not going to go into.
We spent 28m on a proven goal scoring striker last year who didn't play AVB's system and look how that has turned out. Doing the same with Lukaku would be silly, especially when we still got Adebayor on our books.

Good on Everton and good on Lukaku. They should both be doing well this season.
I would much rather pay for Lukaku than continue with Ade, given the option. His output is already excellent in his first two seasons in the EPL, and his skill/positioning can only improve with coaching. A soon-to-be-elite 21 year old vs an under achieving 29 year old feels worth the 28 mil to me - attacking talent doesn't become obtainable like that every day.

But this isn't fifa, perhaps Poch saw Lukaku not being ideal for his style of play and said don't bother. Also, I think that at least Kane and Soldado will thrive under Poch. I have hopes for Ade, but it's hard to teach him new tricks.
After last season's debacle, yet Adebayor's outstanding performances, are we still calling him "underachieving"??
It was totally awesome when he was scoring at an unsustainable rate, but when it caught up with him and we still needed goals we were caught in a lurch. Ade has only given us one season of reliable goals, and that was when he was on loan. I would love it if Poch sorts him out and he's a 20+ goal striker like all know he should be, but when has Ade ever looked up to the responsibility longer than 6 months?
That's the problem with Adebayor, we all know his faults, and feel he isn't worth the trouble sometimes. But it wasn't easy getting him to Spurs, and it is going to be even harder getting rid of him.

Just like the rest of the team, I'm hoping Adebayor gets a new chance with a new manager. On paper, Adebayor fits Poch's style completely. He moves around the midfield, he plays the ball, and only scores when he has got the perfect opportunity to score, i.e. he doesnt go for silly angles or try dribble his way into the goal. Surely this new passing system, with fluid midfielders is exactly what suits Adebayor best.

Our attacking department hasn't been strengthened in personnel so far this summer, but it has been strengthened with Poch coming in with a proper implemented system. Soldado will be able to get the quick play, and through balls/passes which he deserves in order to score goals. Enough said about Adebayor. We will definitely see a massive improvement on Lamela this season, and he'll begin to show us why we paid so much for him. The best of Eriksen is also yet to come.
Morgan Schneiderlin hands in transfer request at Southampton #SSN
Some sources claim he hasn't. Some sources claim there's a bust up at Southampton between three players.

I'm going to turn into an ostrich.
+5
Wow... Southampton is going to make a lot of money this year... I hope they stay up in the league though.
It's getting crazy over there. They currently have enough to buy an entirely new starting 11.
Jumping the gun again??
+2
Haha Mag
Do we really need this guy?
+1
The answer is no SS
+1
Yes
We don't need him, but we don't need anyone really (bar a CB). I know that he is better than any Defensive Midfielders we have and he already knows the Pochettino style. Therefore he would be a colossal addition to our team, add some efficient calm to our defense.
He knows the system?so what are the other lads doing right now?learning the system,he doesn't know the other players,whereas who we already have do,same arguement
Rogue he's been with Poch for 2 seasons and so knows the system that Poch wants to play perfectly (arguably the best in the Southampton team looking at last season). Having a midfielder who knows the way Mauricio wants to play would surely make it a lot easier for the other players.

Agreed about the players getting to know eachother, but I believe the philosophy (which is extremely high-intensity and demands a lot more than AVB or Sherwood) takes longer to learn than the habits of team-mates. Look at Liverpool's awful first season under Rodgers (despite all the players having played with each other for a long time) due to the time the philosophy took to stick.
+1
Yeah well said Paddy basically the point I've been trying to make.
Schneiderlin on Twitter:

"6 years of an amazing journey #saintsfc DESTROYED in 1 hour !!!"

Interesting considering my post about:

"Chairman drives up the price of the players, gets support of fans by saying that they're not for sale and claims afterwards that Schneiderlin/Rodriguez forced through a move. Everyone's a winner!"

Maybe the Chairman and Schneiderlin are in league with eachother! hmmmmm

And no hard feelings Mag. On first reading of your post it seemed like a personal attack but now it seems like a childish overreaction on my part. Guess I was angry at the Morgan move seemingly falling through :)

Peace
I hope it does fall through
+1
It happens bud. There have been times where I have put the term "overreacted" to shame. I respect your opinions, and I like reading your posts. We both want the same thing for the club, even if we have different viewpoints on how the route to that ought to be taken. Let's not dwell too much on this :)

Infact, I'm with you on the Schneiderlin front. I just hope he doesn't ruin it all by not training. He'd be terrific, and I know why you're as excited as you are. He'll probably throw in a transfer request to try and manufacture a move. Doing that and keeping his head down and training hard is the only way to move forward in a positive fashion imo.
You know if we were to get him now we are going to have to spend 30mil on him,so you guys are for this??
30mil! haha I'm sorry but I can't see us splashing that much. Sandro's sale will help soften the blow, I'm sure there will be plenty more departures as well before the transfer window closes. Now 30mil + Rodriguez and you've got a deal!
Where in the world did you get this sum from, Rogue? The only time any number's been mentioned is when their CEO came up to say he'll cost more than Shaw. There is no inclination that we've bid anywhere close to that amount. There were a billion articles last year about Bale costing over 100 million. Does't mean RM bid that amount :P

The amount will be nearer to the 20 million mark. And yes, I pulled that number out from my backside :D
More than Shaw,ok,how much did Shaw cost?plus they have sold loads and amanged to get 16 MILLION FOR CHAMBERS!!
Okay. I'm getting off the board for a couple of days. The silly season's getting to me. You've not even read my post and just thrown out caps lock rage after reading the first two lines. Ridiculous.

Catch you guys for the Celtic game if you make it :)
"when harry says its done, its done" is what Paddy says about theboyhotspur. And out comes the Southampton CEO claiming there is no deal and that the players are set to stay. Makes you wonder about just how good that other website is, eh? If we signed every player he's claimed we have, we'd have a squad strength of 75.

People want website traffic. And they write rubbish generated stories to generate it. What more ways to generate traffic than confirming? If it comes good, then say "I said so". If it doesn't, throw the blame on Levy with an "itk/source at the lane" claiming that Levy didn't want to spend so much. People toss the blame on Levy/Poch through heresay, and the website (this website, or daily fail, or whatever you want to put in here) doesn't lose credibility for spreading sensationalist garbage.

It is fun to speculate. It is good to question the squad and see how we can improve as a team. It is great to debate on what a player brings to the team. But fellas, don't take these guys and itk as gospel. They have no idea and pull stuff out of their backsides to make a living. Giving into their sales pitch will make us resentful for no reason whatsoever. Looking forward to the celtic game :D

COYFS!
+1
Calm down mag. If it happens, it happens. ;)
+1
Harry pisses me off sometimes but usually when he says something is done, it tends to happen. The chairman could just be trying to get as much out of the deal as possible.
We'll see what happens. I honestly can't believe we're in for J-Rod, but I'd take Morgan in a heartbeat.

But, still, can we have a new CB? Pretty plz? :D
Tweeted from @SchneiderlinMo4 (Morgan Schneiderlin's official Twitter):

"6 years of an amazing journey #saintsfc DESTROYED in 1 hour !!!"

Wow. Sounds like he'll be agitating for a move.
That escalated quickly.

*This was supposed to be below Paddy's comment. #Footytube'd.
The Guardian.com
SkySports.com
BBC.com
PressAssociation.com

All of these reported that the deals were close to being completed, BBC went as far as saying that the Rodriguez deal was completed after the Toronto match. That means Mag, that this is not just DailyMail, Mirror and Goal.com rubbish. This is news from the most trusted websites, which only means that the deals have fallen through for some reason or another. Talks did take place between the two clubs, is what I'm trying to say.


I'm extremely confused to be honest. I'm also angry, especially if we miss out on Scheiderlin. But the belittling of my post isn't greatly appreciated Mag, I have never seen such confidence by so many reliable sources, for it to fall through (which is why i was so excited).

Looking at it from the hopeful approach that so angers Mag, how about this.
Chairman drives up the price of the players, gets support of fans by saying that they're not for sale and claims afterwards that Schneiderlin/Rodriguez forced through a move. Everyone's a winner!

COYS
+1
@isnotfish: s**t just got real lol, can't blame him to be honest with what has been going on at their club. They can keep Jay but let us have Morgan.
@Paddy: Agreed. Too many sources to ignore its legitimacy. I think Saints chairman even acknowledged that the officials from 2 clubs met in Toronto.

Boy! Oh boy! That tweet. Wonder what Mag thinks. :P
I can see the reasons though. They just let go 5 players to fulfil their 'dream' and he is being 'rewarded' for his wonderful performances right now.
Why are people excited for us to sign Morgan?granted I've always rated Rodriguez and would love get him at the right price,I even said I wanted us to sign him when he was at burnley if you have the patience to check back.but why Morgan?our midfield has much better players,much more potential and they are building chemistry,why bring in a guy who came up from league 1 with Southampton for £27m?was anyone saying that when he did well in the championship!
+1
The amount of defensive replies and "calm down"s and personal attack oriented responses confuses the heck out of me. The only time I took Paddy's name was to quote the source of where it happened. All I ever said that might even be directed towards paddy was "don't trust that guy, he'll be in a divide and rule policy". Positive approach that angers me? Belittling posts? lol. The only person I slam and will continue to slam is that website and those who write those articles. The rest of "belittling" is in your heads. I have no intention of doing so, and will not do so.

A whole bunch of articles have been mentioned. Yes. But have you guys never seen a scenario where one news generates so much traffic that others jump onto the bandwagon? Even in the Guardian's article, there was almost next to nothing to report about Jay Rod and Schneiderlin. 3/4th the article was about Chambers!

The interest is more than likely true. I have mentioned that I have no qualms with the discussions. I've taken part in a majority myself. To look at it in any personal sleight is twisting my words to suit your viewpoint. But simply because the interest is true, it does not excuse the article's existence of "deal done!". No. The deal is not done. A bid was made. The player was ready to discuss it further. The chairman said no. The article is rubbish, and as I mentioned, the article gets a clean billing of health by "positive stance" from "he says it is done".

I am completely calm and actually laughing a little at how the OP was interpreted. For once, I'm not going to apologize... It'd be like apologizing for a red card where I won the tackle! :P Rose vs City nightmare start, anyone?

@Rogue: Morgan is a terrific player. I have no questions about that. He's actually an upgrade on all of our midfielders. As much as it pains me to say it, he's an upgrade on even Sandro, considering how much Sandro has lost ground due to injury.
You know, I'm actually much more excited by Morgan that J-Rod. I know we have a full midfield, but if we look at individual performances last year, who actually thrived? Those who we should expect to rely on (Dembele/Sandro/Paulinho/Capoue) were all either out injured or wholly uninspiring all season. Well, to be fair to Sandro/Capoue, Sherwood was a Mastermind who didn't believe in DM's...

Still, Schneiderlin led the league in interceptions last season, and had 0 (0!) defensive errors. That's an insane statistic. I know our midfield wasn't exactly set up for success last year, but for all appearances he's an upgrade on everything we have in the center, know's Poochy and the system, and hell he even know's french!

(here's a link to a statistical comparison between the Beast and MoSchno: http://eplindex.com/56742/stats-comparison-morgan-schneiderlin-sandro.html)
It's also telling that, of all the talent that Poochy could have brought from Soton (he could have reached out to any of them as soon as he left), he goes for the heart of his midfield.

I have faith in our midfild, and I think that MoPo could maximize their potential, but it would be great to give him the tools he wants to succeed.

For the record, I still think our priority should be CB. I also think that Capoue will thrive in our quick pressing/aggressive passing mode we're looking to play. I love Sandro, but I'm worried both about his fitness and his first touch.

We'll see! This is turning into a drama. Schneiderlin has every right to be upset with Soton after the manager said anyone who wants to go can go, seeing all of his friends get the deals the want, the manager leave, the chairman leave...would you want to stay at your job after all of that?
Honestly,with the stadium coming and us needing to save the money,I am 100% against this move,it simply isn't needed,il going to ne si pissed off id wé get him
@MAg: I dont know about the rest but my calm down was for you to stop reading papers. You seemed half pissed that you fell for it. Nothing to do with Paddy's link. 2 different comments might have confused it a bit. :D


And as far references to you and Schneiderlin tweets go, I am sure it was because you absolutely detest signing players who force their way out. Just wanted to know what your response is to the tweet and how less excited you're w.r.to the move now.


Totally agreed on the paper talk though. I usually wait till it is on the official site but this looked a reai possibility. Things aren't as close as they seemed to be.
+1
I am not happy with his outburst. It is yet to be seen if he's going to start being a twat and stop training to force a way out. I won't be making assumptions till it happens :P

And my stance has always been the same with regards to signing players. I don't even open those links from that particular site. I don't fall for any website. I've been optimistic about Greizmann, but not really anyone else. I've played along about Rodriguez and Schneiderlin, but frankly, I'd much rather we focus on a CB. I'm willing to trust Poch if we were to sell some player to bring in Schneiderlin, but I ain't considering him one of our players yet. Even now, I'm having chats on skype about how I think it'll happen in the winter.
+1
WHR how can you say it simply isn't needed!? we had one of the leakiest defences last season. Signing a good CB imo is vital as Mag has just pointed out but what's just as vital is signing a solid CDM who can come in and provide that protection in front of the back four. Scheiderlin would add so much value to the current squad, he's played under Poch before, he's played under the new system before and he's played extremely well in it.
Because sandro was put for a lot of it,we changed our system numerous times,the players haven't played Well but will.
How can any of you want us to sign him for £28m,we thought buying our striker for that was ridiculous,now a holding player we don't need for it?it's just not viable with the structure we need to set out with the new stadium and payment.we still have bentaleb,dembele,sandro,paulinho and some more that could suit this system,it's just a joke to suggest we need him
+1
I have a hard time blaming MoSchno for being upset, after the chairman/manager/half of his team are allowed to leave that he's told he must stay, when a more ambitious club comes knocking. I don't think that Tottenham has conducted our recruitment methods in an unbecoming way (like Real or Barca do), nor am I saying that "smaller" clubs need to bow down to "bigger" ones.

I just can't blame Schneiderlin for not wanting to stay, when clearly the club is looking to be a disaster this season. Could he have been quieter about it? Sure. We have no idea, however, how much information has been passed between club management and his reps. He could have been told he was free to negotiate with THFC (we usually don't talk to players without consent) and then be shocked to hear the chairman saying there was no way he was leaving. That would upset me too.

Moral of the story, we don't know enough. It's the same argument as Jan being "petulant" or "unhappy" or "having poor body language" ; the player was in a shitty situation for and he responded.

Also, yer all special :D
+1
The numbers are really just quoted once by the chairman. It doesn't mean we've actually bid 28 million :P I wouldn't want him at that price either. Let's give Levy a bit more credit than that, eh? :P


@Notfish: Special? lol. Is that a drunken rant, bud? :D
I'm sure Levy knows what he's doing WHR
He knew what he was doing when he bought soldado for 28mil??I want him out anyway,he's just a joke.
I didn't see anyone here last season saying that schneiderlin is immense and worth more than kheidera and kroos..
+1
I'm confident Soldado will come good, he's looked good in pre season so far. Levy will knock out a good price for him, the situation has changed from last season. Obviously Poch is the manager now and it's important that we get him the players he wants, Scheiderlin would help implement the pressing and passing style on the pitch. He wouldn't need to be trained or taught he could come straight and do a job for us. I agree with your point spending a lot on Soldado, Baldini basically went on a shopping spree. But surely then you must understand that now we're head hunting players properly with a strategy, which is what we should've done last season but we didn't hence why AVB is gone (imo because he didn't get the players HE wanted) Surely you see logic in that?
Back to square 1 about Lamela and Soldado fees. And comparing Kroos's fee (with a one year contract) to Schneiderlin is just out of this world. The best part is that we don't even have a number to go by! This is turning into a never ending discussion, so I'll show myself out.
I don't want us wasting money cos it will bite us in the arse in a few years for certain
Please don't get me started about Soldado :(

His pre season performances will keep me quiet for now.
