The squad as it stands after the departures of Mason and Chadli.

GK: Lloris, Vorm
RB: Walker, Trippier
LB: Rose, Davies
CB: Vert, Toby, Wimmer
CDM : Dier, Wanyama
CM: Dembele, Carroll, Winks
CAM: Eriksen, Alli
LM: Son, N'Jie
RM: Lamela, Onomah
ST: Kane, Janssen

There is a drastic drop in quality in the backup spot for CM and RM. I'm expecting two of Eriksen, Alli, Son and N'Jie (or N'dokou) to be playing , so I didn't really point to a drop in quality at LM. We are seeing the pinch of what's happening with Dembele out... and he's not the most fit person in the world. I'm not sure I like the pairing of Dier and Wanyama in a two man CDM formation, so with Mason shipped out, I hope we'll be signing someone to fill into that role. RM is another problem area. If Lamela and Dembele are injured... I don't fancy seeing Carroll and Onomah playing in a Champions league game.
+1
Agreed with everything. I am definitely expecting some signings before the deadline tomorrow. The squad as it stands isn't good enough, if we actually end up signing no-one, I will be disappointed. N'koudou should be done at the very least.
+2
Looks like we'll have confirmation of N'Kodou tomorrow. He just posted "to dare is to do" on twitter. Don't see it meaning anything else other than him signing. That'd be a relief!
+1
Is Njie for sure leaving if Nkoudou comes in? If so, we aren't really adding to our depth there...

If nobody else comes in, we are probably gonna have to register some of the youth players we've seen in pre-season to the squad.

Very very worrying stuff.
Hull city have completed the purchase of Ryan Mason for £8M. Best of luck Ryan

Best of Luck to Mason. He might not be the most talented player we've had, but he always gave it everything.

Also, Hull are saying that they broke their transfer record, which was previously 10 million for Abel Hernandez. So this fee is more than 10 million, which is an excellent bit of business for us.
+2
GOod transfer profits but letting good back-up players go. Is Levy's plan to tank this season in order to get more of the stadium debt paid off sooner?

Our depth looks like crap right now. There's no way we can compete on four fronts with this squad. We might have to just totally drop both the domestic cups and play the kids.
+1
Maybe there will be an influx in the next few hours.
Chadli to West Brom for 13m.
+2
Great news, good money!
+2
To make a profit from a player that was longer in our plans is a great move.
+2
I don't really rate Chadli anymore. He was brought in as a younger Dempsey replacement, and he did his job okay during his time here. We've progressed a bit too much to have him around. But my worry about lack of quality in depth remains (we were talking of the same thing earlier, FayJay. just that I meant quality of depth when I said Depth :) ), especially on the wings. Our wing play will get very one dimensional. Even poch alluded to that in an earlier interview, that all players like the ball to their feet, and no one really likes the ball played ahead of them. We tend to get slowed down in attack due to this. N'Jie is the only one who really can play with the ball ahead of him.
+2
Yes, we need some more pace in there, not only from our wingbacks. But I'd like to see an upgrade of the playmaker role. Eriksen has been our weakest player in every of our first three matches. Poch is probably persisting, hoping that he will step up a notch, plus Dembele will be back shortly. However, that position is an eyesore right now. Against Liverpool I was quickly ready for Winks or Carroll to replace Eriksen but that seems a long shot too.
+2
Eriksen's passing has been non existent in 2016. He gets away with it due to his penchant for some late goals and great FKs... a lot of us seem to be incredibly forgiving towards him even though he doesn't deserve that level of lenience. Reminds me of how VDV got away with almost doing nothing for half the games he was here.

Alli's attitude also needs some improvement. It is starting to look like things are getting to his head a little, which is something Poch needs to be careful about. Cheap yellows will pile up, and it looks like he learnt nothing from the Chelsea fracas last year. Teams like that will continue to take advantage.

The best part in all that will be that Dembele will be back after one game. We look like a whole different team without him, and can't seem to find an alternative for him at all. His being back will help the likes of Eriksen, alli and Son, who need someone to do the dirty work for them and distribute the ball to their feet. Even Dier seems a little subdued this season.

We're being linked with Coric, Isco... and N'dokou and Lopez deals have been dragging on for months. It is amusing to see people blame Levy for N'dokou, despite it being almost blatantly clear that the delay is from the other side. The player's even training with us, we've gone out of our way to try and get him to start getting fit. With a change in administration, they're dragging their feet on everything. I'm willing to bet Isco is a press invention and the hate brigade will then go on spewing and frothing at the mouth about how we didn't sign him.

Agree on all accounts.

To perk things up a bit leading up to the final week of transfers: a nice snippet with one of our own, Harry Kane.
+1
Final week of the transfer window. We've seen Bentaleb leave, and he was a polarising player here for sure, some rated him and others didn't. It'll be interesting if there's a mandatory purchase clause. Considering he went out on loan when we didn't really rate him, he probably does. Fazio's gone on loan. Yedlin's been sold. So we've gotten a bit of a better idea of what's going to be our squad.

GK - Lloris is almost back according to Poch. The players rate of recovery is amazing. Even Vert came back much earlier than we anticipated. Kudos to the medical staff. Vorm is in there deputing for now, and we might get Pau Lopez, who is very highly rated. Probably paving the way for Vorm to be sold in either the winter window or the next summer.

Defenders are sorted. Dier and Wanyama can play if needed. We also have some academy players to step in if required.

Defensive Mid : Between moose, Dier and Wanyama.. we have this covered. Mason, Carroll and Winks in case of emergencies seems like a good enough solution for me.

CAM/CF : Eriksen, Kane and Alli.. enough said.

Wings : I'm a little worried about the depth we have in the wings. Eriksen at LAM doesn't fill me with any confidence despite the last year's performances. He feels a little lost out wide, and there's added pressure on Rose or Dier to cover out wide. Leaves a little pocket or two of space open. I am done hoping Chadli will come good. So right now, we have Son/Chadli/Njie and Lamela. Son can play on the right wing too if needed, but that's a little light, even if we do get N'Doukou.

ST: I'm a fan of Kane and Janssen.

What position would you guys like to see us strengthen in this week? Any particular players you'd like to see?

+1
Winger and a true Dembele replacement are all we really need right now. If preseason was any indication (lol, sigh), Harry Winks looks like he can come in and do a job next to Dier or Wanayama, but we'll see if Poche gives him a chance.

Also, hey ya'll.
+1
Sup !fish :P Been a while.

We look set to see a decent amount of Winks. A lot of talk about Mason to either Hull or Sunderland. Hull has a 12 mil bid accepted according to Sky (I know, silly season, so pinch of salt). That has me worried. Don't get me wrong, I thought Winks was looking better than Mason during pre-season and that Mason could safely be sold next year with Winks stepping up into his role. But I'm getting a wee bit nervous about the lack of depth. Hopefully, we'll see a couple of signings.
Mason has to be sold; regardless of what I think about Spurs depth, I don't see a space for Mason. Sorry to say but the club has grown beyond him, just as it did for Townsend and Lennon.
I feel the same goes for Chadli, he's become a midtable player - he gets you goals, but when he doesn't he's not offering anything else to the team. You more often than not forget that he's on the pitch until he hits a screamer.
Carroll should be moved on as well, but only having a year on his contract, and considering the lack of interest, we won't get much for him anyways so he's probably going to be retained for cup games.

Bentaleb is as good as sold in my eyes. It's a loan deal but includes an option to buy (rumoured 17m?). If Poch believed he still had a chance to prove himself for our team, then he wouldn't have approved a buy clause. Same goes for Fazio, he's basically sold.

Nkoudou currently training at Spurs, so perhaps the deal is imminent (Just as it has been for the past month since he allegedly passed his medical). Still unclear though whether or not Njie is going the other way.

Onomah should be given more of a role this season, he broke into the team last year making several sub appearances and even started Europa games. Like the embarassing defeat to Dortmund. He was part of pre-season and doesn't seem to be any news of him being loaned out. Same goes for Harry Winks.

I don't think we have a problem with depth, it's a question of the quality of the depth. We have a lot of players covering all the positions now, but after the starting XI, the quality goes missing.
Son didn't have a spectacular debut season, but it wasn't awful. He's still allowed time to get more accustomed and gel with the team chemistry. Same goes for Njie, although his season was quite a bit worse than Son's considering his injuries and he'll be feeling more than just disappointed if we do swap him out for Nkoudou as he never got given a proper chance.
+1
Did you hear Pochettino said in the post match interview last weekend, that they're still looking at adding 1-3 players.
Yeah I did, but I also heard him say immediately after that, that it was a possibility we could also sign no-one. Basically he covered all his bases, of course we would still be looking to bring players in, whether or not we can get the deals done is a different matter.

It's been a crazy window already, majorly dominated by the Manchester clubs. But it's going to be a long 5 days because I doubt any clubs in the premier league have finished signing.
Will be interesting to see if it will be Marseille or Levy who backs down on N'Koudou.
I saw lamela's nutmeg against Crystal Palace, but had no idea it was on Townsend til just a moment ago...ouch lol

Group E:

CSKA Moscow
Bayer Leverkusen
Spurs
AS Monaco

Ya got this
That's an interesting group. None of the really strong teams, but also no really weak teams. Should be a lot of fun.
+1
group of death to me tbh
It is the group of death. But at the same time, all the teams there are of similar quality. People have the habit of underestimating teams like the ones in Group E. I wouldn't be shocked if one of these teams went to the final 16. But that's anyone's guess.

Going to be a good fight. I'm happy with the group, as we'll not be taking anyone easily and will be serious facing all the teams. Great for the mindset. Expecting us to do well in it :)
+1
I'd say Celtic has the group of death.
But they have such a good chance to build some character...

Old joke. But had to be done :D
+1
group of death refers to the group that has the most even competition. Nobody will bat an eye if you guys don't make it out of this one.
I'm sure we'll be heftily batting our eye lids...
One positive is that we're going to Moscow on MD2, not in the middle of the Russian winter, while they instead come to London in December.

Spurs chat - special Champions League draw edition!

http://tinychat.com/tottenhamway
CSKA Moscow and Beyer Leverkusen so far. Could have been a whole lot worse
AS Monaco to round out the group
That's a pretty good draw.
As usual we're entering the League Cup in the third round, and we've been drawn at home vs Gillingham (currently 10th in League One). They somehow knocked out Watford in the 2nd round.

Today is the draw for the Champions League group stage.
