Take that for an obscure article :D Vorm's signed till 2017 with a year's optional add on. There was another article given, but that's refusing to get translated for some reason. He claims he's happy to join, and that every top team has two good keepers. He's confident he'll get game time with the number of competitions we're playing. Some actual quotes in the other one. Trying to find a better one.

I have read and heard that we are kind of interested in signing Micah Richards... What do you'll think? I think he could be a good replacement for Kaboul.
You know what? I wouldn't mind this. It isn't because I rate Micah Richards or whatever. I think we could do with a short term solution for the CB issue. There just aren't good and affordable CBs on the market this summer, and we could do with waiting for a bit rather than spend silly money on someone like Lovren. 20 million for Lovren, man.. he's a good CB and all that, but 20 mil? Dammmmn.

Get Richards on loan, sign Moreno or the likes in the winter/next summer.
Not realistic in my opinion.

Getting Richards in is no better than the Kaboul we have already. Richards is not even that much younger either, he's 26 and Kaboul is two years his senior at 28. Richards also suffered a knee injury that put him out of action for Man City. This effectively led to him having played like 5 games in 2 years or something ridiculous and has never been able to regain any sort of form or fitness. He needs a lot of work to get it back, only game time will fix him and he won't get it at Spurs. He would be a worse back up than Dawson and Kaboul.
Kaboul after a solid pre season + already been fit for a few months could be like a new signing. I wouldnt write him off just yet.
The thing is... I still consider our starting pair to be Vert and Kaboul, so you guys are assuming I'm writing off Kaboul. I have Richards in for a backup, and nothing more, if we do sell Dawson. I do not trust Vlad at all, and I would much rather see a starting lineup of Kaboul and Vert.
We've had enough injury prone defenders for a lifetime already!
When he first broke through I thought he was gunna be a superstar! His leap is incredible. I suppose we could do worse but he's a no go at his current
price.
Note: I did say loan. These rubbish articles seem to think they'll be open to just get him off the wage bill. The way things are going, a loan with an option to buy (that we won't exercise unless a miracle happens) wouldn't be too shabby.
Davies snapped training with the team :)

Lamela quoted saying he never considered leaving even at his lowest point and is happier now and wants to prove what he's worth to everyone and has thanked those who've stood behind him during the worst period.

Turning into a good day, this :D

Awesome interview with Ledley at my other favorite Spurs site:

+1
Yeah, I like them for the size of the fan base and amount of articles per day. With that many followers on the site and writers on staff, they get news more quickly. The group here is still my fave, despite the fact that this site isn't the greatest *glances back and forth for footy KGB*...
CFC is a pretty good site. Grown quite a bit over the years. A little too gif happy for my liking and quite a few of the jokes tend to fly off my head with the cultural references, but I'm really glad they're growing in the right direction. Almost as good as Fighting c**k and Windy's page.
This site is beyond poor. Lol. Just look at all the jumping messages for one! Been happening for years, nothing being done. It'd be brilliant if our board moved to another forum, but that doesn't seem to be happening. Atleast LeDerp is now a mod here :P
lol. Just as we were having this convo the site crashed.
GET IT TOGETHER FOOTY!
Is it possible for someone or a team to work on the footytube site and revamp it. How many hours of coding and work would such a task entail?
You're entering some very touchy territory there, T'Challa. lol. Suffice to say that the site has been (apparently) re-coded and is being "constantly worked on".
Is it that bad??? :O
For whatever reason, this site is exceptionally and constantly buggy. If it weren't for you chaps I wouldn't bother :D
Only two reasons why I'm even trying is because

1) The games haven't started and we can't meet up on tinychat like usual and I'd like to keep in touch with you guys.

2) LeDerp is now a mod and he deserves some support and a chance to give it a go to try and improve this site. While he can't do anything about the bugs, he can do a bit about the general atmosphere around here. I failed in keeping that positive, and I believe LeDerp will do a much better job of it overall :)

Sky Sources: Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm agrees personal terms with Tottenham #SSN

interesting
Yeah 13. The worst kept "secret" for a while now. BBC has reported that Siggs is currently having a medical, along with SSN as posted by FayJay below. The numbers going around are Davies + Vorm = Siggs + 5 million pounds. An excellent deal imo as we desperately needed a LB and a GK backup. Brad's 43 and is well past his prime and Gomes is released. Vorm represents an excellent #2 option.
Strange career move tho. .
this is good thou It means fabianski will probably be number 1 at Swansea :) although unless lloris is leaving which I doubt it vorm is going to be number 2 which makes it more interesting
The way I see it is, he's not the type of keeper to be expecting number one spot right away at a top six side; he was number 3 for Netherlands and with the arrival of Fabianski, number 2 at Swansea. I'd rather be number 2 at Spurs than at Swansea... and as mentioned by Magneto below, he'll be sure to get a good run of games in the domestic cups and europa games.
Lloris signed a new contract less than 2 weeks ago. You can stop dreaming 13 :D
+1
Tbh new contract signings mean nothing. Bale signed a an extension 6months before his departure. I see it as a "I'll sign a new contract to boost my value so you get the maximum money when I WANT to leave" lol. But yeah good on Lloris...
It was signed 2 weeks ago, so it would mean Lloris is here for at least another 6months if you want to be a pessimist. A year realistically if we have another poor season but must surely feel inclined to fulfil his contract if we have a good season. So at the end of the day, Vorm will have to be number 2 for the immediate future unless Lloris gets an injury.
I don't think he's actually #3 for Netherlands I heard he was carrying a slight injury and lvg wanted to start him instead of cillessen
@JayaRe: Bale signed BEFORE AVB was officially confirmed. So atleast 12 months before. No one envisaged he would have such a stellar season leading to interest from Real. Safe to say Lloris is going nowhere this season.
Is it really that crazy to think Hugo could be around for the duration? Barca / RM / Bayern / PSG are set for keepers, and I can't Levy allowing him to go to another EPL side. I can't see Hugo signing for another EPL side.

Any other team that he could go to would be lateral movement to an inferior league, with the exception of Champions League football. Also, is it so crazy to think WE could be playing in the CL next year? Lez see wassup.
I think we could loan Vorm out for the season, keeps him off the wage bill and keeps him match sharp and value up.
Then he can come back to be number 2 when Brad retires at end of season......
Just a thought.
I don't really think we ought to rely on Brad. We've got to take the Europa League seriously as it now leads to a CL spot next season onwards. Brad is great to give the guys some experience, but one injury and we're down to relying on a 43 year old man and some very average squad players.
Sky Sports News:

Sigurdsson currently undergoing medical at Swansea ahead of £10m switch.

In opposite direction, Ben Davies seems set to join us and also Michel Vorm who has apparently agreed personal terms aswell...

Good news? I can just see Sigurdsson being a big success at Swansea, just as he was in his first season in the Prem. I always held high hopes for him but he would only have excelled for us if we had played him consistently in his best position in the middle; not out wide! He was wasted as a wide player and I'm gutted to see him go, but there is too much competition in the midfield now and he doesn't really make the cut.
He needs playing time in the VDV role. We haven't played that position in a while now, and I don't expect us to switch to a 4-4-1-1 now with the players we have. Again, Siggs was a good player, purchased for "talent" rather than looking at the role he plays and if he'd fit into the squad based on his skillset. Some very poor purchases were made, with very good players ruined because they were cast into roles they had no hopes of excelling in.

Siggs will have a new lease of life at Swansea and will be an excellent replacement for Michu. Of course he will do well, and he'll make a huge batch of Spurs players angry at selling him. But the fact remains that we have better alternatives/need better alternatives in the positions available and cannot change the system to suit a player. It isn't siggs fault, and the only ones I can blame are the manager, the scouting department and the ones who made the purchase in the first place.
Anyone seen the pattern at the top of the home kit??that looks nice
I think you're alone on this one, Rogue :P I dislike the kits. All of them. The training kit's bearable :P
It's a homage to Bill Nicholson and the gates on the road leading up to the stadium or something .
Named in his honour - incidentally called 'bill Nicholson Way' not road or street because we believe in his Way of playing...learned that on the Stadium Tour ;P

It's the only redeeming feature I think. Maybe it's a grower...

True, Andy. True. But as much as I like the history behind it, I just feel it could be done in a more tasteful manner. The new kits do absolutely nothing for me in the slightest.
Rumours picking up now about us bidding for Greizmann.

I know it is rubbish media with no basis whatsoever about these articles, but...*goes away to daydream*
+1
Daily Mirror writes that we have made a £20million bid, oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man!
Don't want him,I really rate him but I want Poch to keep the same attack as last season
Daydream a bit harder now that Monaco need to find a replacement for James Rodriguez. Griezmann as a target.
Poch is being quoted that we've been needing a "Bale Replacement" - someone to come in from the left and score goals. I get the feeling he really wants a much more creative and flowing team than AVB set us up for.

AVB was such a charlatan. He said all the right things but never understood how to implement them. I remember us watching AVB ball and thinking "well, this isn't the Spurs I fell in love with...but if we're winning I guess it's fine." I fell for Spurs the season before we bought VDV, and really started watching as Bale, VDV, Modric, and (sigh) Parker tore things up. Until very recently, I don't think we've ever looked quite like that side again. Even from the looks of that first friendly, my hopes are up - quick, forward one touch passing / energized, interested players / even some tricksy moves up the wings.

If we were to buy Greizmann (*salivates*), our mid/forward line up could be...

----Holtby---Sandro
Lamela----Eriksen---Greizmann
-------Soldado/Kane

...BRB, getting new pants.
+1
Yeah. He'll go to Monaco without a doubt. But it was a good daydream :P

@notfish: Considering you've voiced every single bit of my daydream, I'll let you off the hook and not put you in a fishtank :P
Tottenham have opened talks with Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm over a potential move to White Hart Lane, according to Sky sources. The 30-year-old Netherlands international has been granted permission to speak to the White Hart Lane side via his representative over the past few days after the Premier League clubs agreed a fee, thought to be in the region of £5million.

Things are beggining to move fast now,
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/tottenham-hotspur/10981767/Tottenham-eye-France-winger-Antoine-Griezmann-as-long-term-successor-for-Gareth-Bale.html

Wow, this is the one attacking player I would love for us to get. He is absolutely perfect for us.

And this is The Telegraph, they're pretty reliable.
No one's reliable apart from our official website :P I'd love nothing more than this happening, but he'll be off to Monaco :(
