SUMMER WISH LIST: SANDRO(Barca)to be second striker
INAKI WILLAMS to replace Townsend
OMAR ABDULRAHMAN to replace Mason
MUSONDA to be the next wonderkid at WHL.
+1
Sandro, the guy who was let go, for non-playing reasons?

We need to sell another attacking mids, before we go for anyone. Townsend was surplus.

Musonda? I hope you realise he is a Chelsea player. :P
+2
Lol musonda, really?

inaki williams, definitely not. he signed a new deal this season with a huge release clause. everyone was eying him first half of the season but i think he will stay put.
+1
So... Omar is good to go right?
+1
We are literally not after any of these players.
Every now and then I gt super excited about a Spurs transfer rumor. This one seems very unlikely but Saul from Athletico Madrid is exactly what Spurs need in every single way. He can play in pretty much every position and provides genuine competition for every gap in our current squad except striker. He is a legit replacement for Ali, Dembele, Dier and can even be our 4th or choice center back. These are all positions where we desperately need champs league quality depth. Not only that but he can also play on the left and right of midfield which gives Poch more options and flexibility during match substitutions.

He is only 21 years old so at the perfect age for Poch to mold. Yet despite his tender age he would provide Spurs with plenty of priceless champ league experience and a proper game winning mentality at that level. He is in my opinion the exact perfect player we should be targeting for next season.

All that being said I still think the transfer is very unlikely but not impossible. Simply put, if Saul wants to leave Madrid then we are one of his best option out there. Some would say that it is not a Levy type signing. To which I would have to agree. I would however point out that it is very much a Poch style signing. It's a player that ticks all his boxes and would genuinely improve the first team.

It's worth noting that around the same time the Saul rumor came out Poch was given a new contract. With that new contract he was given a new title. He has job brief has been changed from Head Coach to Manager. When asked about this Poch explained that essentially he has been given more control over transfers. So if the Saul rumor is true, it means that as Soon as Poch was given his new job mandate the very first thing he did was offer Saul a contract. To be honest I don't find that too hard to believe really.

Maybe Poch is being a bit naive in first foray into the market by aiming for someone the caliber of Saul. The truth is however that Saul has a release clause like every player in Spain and I firmly believe 36 mil is within Spurs capacity... if that is what Poch really wants. Spurs are finally in the champs league group stage for sure and have the new TV money coming in this window. So if were ever gonna splash out then logically now would be the time to do it!! Wages wise it would put him at the top of our wage scale but this is where Poch being in charge makes it more possible than if Levy was making the final call.

I find it easy to believe that Poch honestly wants Saul and may well have put an offer on the table... but the reality is Saul would have to want to leave this athletico madrid golden era for anything to happen. It's much more likely that Saul's agent encouraged the bid so as to gain more leverage during negotiations with Athletico for a new contract. It's worth noting that Athletico does sell at least one of it's stars each window of how well they do each year irrespective of how well the team did that year. Kinda like the way Spurs used to!!

Regardless of if we have no chance to sign Saul I really do like the impetus being shown by Poch to take our squad to the next level while we can. Clearly we didn't ake advantage of our last champs league transfer windows (VDV excepted.) It seems this time we are actually going to strike while the iron is hot as Levy has clearly put all his eggs in the Poch basket this time round.
+3
While I really like your enthusiasm about Saul, this is absolutely a non starter. He is a local boy, and that's like someone wanting to get Kane. Either way,

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11838/10286779/saul-niguez-signs-new-atletico-madrid-deal

He signed a new contract 2 days ago till 2021. Sorry Hat :(

The transfer window will be interesting. Hopefully, we can get our signings done early, but with the Euros looming, clubs usually dally till after they are done to hopefully push up player price.
+2
Hatmundo, those were my exact sentiments a few days ago. But obviously, as Magneto pointed out, once he signed a new contract, all hopes flickered out completely.

Nice post though.
+1
GO into hibernation for next few weeks, everyone. Atleast, I intend to do so.
I think our high-energy game has exhausted me as well. :D

problem is everyone will be better next season. you have to keep improving and keep evolving. teams will adapt their style against spurs, trust me.

I think we have the best chairman in the Premier League.
+2
Tottenham and City were the only two teams this season who didn't have a man sent off. That's better than last season when Naughton and Kaboul were both sent off twice. Mind you all four were overturned by the FA.
+3
and we had 2 retrospective bans, which should have been sending offs this season. :D
+3
Spurs need to continue to build.

Poch does not have the squad needed to get trophies. There's 12/13 great players then the quality drops like a free falling elephant.

A few post down mentions that the squad is almost settled and not to replace every weak player with a big named star... That statement seems ludacris to me... I agree that searching out big named stars is a futile attempt at success but why keep a weak player? If they're not useful, why pay them? Spurs need positive results, and if the player doesn't have the ability to produce results, then they need to be dropped.

You can shout all you want that Mason is a young, full of potential English player that deserves a spot on the squad but reality shows replacing Dembele with Mason will leave you with a spanking from a regulated team. Why keep fooling yourself? He's just not good enough.

Chadli is dead weight. He doesn't have the quality to break into the first 11 and makes zero impact as a sub. His movement is as stale as left over pizza crust and he has less vision than Stevie Wonder. He is frustratingly useless.

Bentaleb and Winks should also move on for obvious reasons.

I think its pretty obvious that we'll see a new striker but I also hope we see some solid impact subs! Pacey game changers!

I really hope Poch has Deulofeu on his mind. Everything about him suits Spurs, great ball control, pace, crosses, and a wicked shot. And if there was ever a time to steal him from Everton it's now.

Solid coverage for Dembele is in my opinion the most crucial objective to a successful campaign next season. I know earlier this season there was talks of Sergio Roberto, really hope Levy can make that happen.

All in all my expectations have already been surpassed this season and feel as long as there is Poch, Spurs will be stronger next season regardless who is signed.
+3
Deulofeu and Sergio Roberto are your backups for striker and CM?

Your argument is invalid.
+2
Deulofeu as a forward and Sergio as a CM. I didn't suggest a Striker as they're already plenty of rumors who will be signed. My suggestions are more of a "wish list". And I wouldn't look at it as "backups", more as improvements.

Both players fit the build, are young, incredibly skilled, fit the pay wage, and should fit in the transfer budget.

How is my argument invalid?
+1
I do not understand how my argument for keeping team unity got twisted to keeping weak players. There is a reason teams like Leicester, Arsenal and us prospered...while the likes of City, United, Liverpool and Chelsea finished where they did despite spending so much. A bunch of players don't make a team, they make a squad. Chop and change too much too soon, and we're liable to repeat the mistakes of the "Super 7". We don't need to get rid of all our backups. They are exactly that. Backups. The likes of Mason, Bentaleb and Carrol are both academy players and also satisfy our quotas for players in the CL. No point in getting rid of all of them at the same time.
+1
I believe Spurs have team unity within the core 11. Besides, when are these "backup" players to be used? During the champions League? And watch Spurs get ripped by BVB again?

I'm not saying cut and chop the whole team, but the difference between being a participant in the Champions league and being a competitor is the power of the bench.

Arsenal do not prosper if anything they are very stagnant, while Leicester was pretty much a miracle. City, United, and Liverpool have nothing similar to Spurs transfer windows. I don't want to see a bunch of big names, just a couple different names. (Unless you consider Deulofeu and Sergio as big names, which I don't). I don't fear a "Super 7" repeat, as this time, there is nothing to compensate for (I.E Bale).

Academy players will still be here; Carrol, Onomah, Walker, Vickers, etc.

I don't want to kill the youth system but just add some punch along with it.
I know people are still feeling ill from yesterdays finish to our season... cos I most certainly am not over it yet and still feel a little disgusted/cheated.

But nevertheless, I implore you all to watch this video, puts everything into perspective...some what....

The author didn't include footage of how we also bottled 2nd and finished 3rd behind Arsenal. But at the same time, this highlights a key point: the greatest loss of our season, our only loss really, is the title. We were guaranteed champions league, a big fat f*****g tick in that box because we did it with a title chase and secured a top 3 finish; the type of finish we would have been dreaming about at the beginning of the season.

This is no excuse of course, our players were unprofessional, they lost focus and got destroyed for 3 games after a full bloodycrazed London Derby with Chelsea. We went to holiday mode and simply packed up for the season.

But we lost key players, no Dembele, no Alli and no Rose against Newcastle were massive losses. Our squad isn't good enough, and that is a key lesson going into the summer. Poch now knows for sure we have players that need to be replaced and surely to make it up to us fans, he must be looking for the right replacements. And the players who remain, will remember the weak mindedness against Leicester in the title race, and can learn from it.

NB. Pochs new contract is not only for longevity and a payrise, but apparently his role has changed from Head Coach to Manager. This could be a key point as Poch looks to take control of transforming our team.

The future is bright; The future is Lilywhite. COYS!
+2
I know its sucks for you the way it all ended.. But you guys were solid all season long, and you are in CL without any qualifications.. Look at the bright side, don't get too down, it is successful season for you.
+2
Banter!
+1
i wish we finished third to be honest. Watch Arsene say some bs about us finishing 2nd and Giroud scoring hat-trick as signs of strength and end up buying 1 player and a no name. Prepare for heartache this summer.
+3
I like how a commenter on another forum put it, we somehow finished third in a two-horse race haha very typical Spurs, can't help but laugh at ourselves to be honest.

But like you said, it's been a solid season, one of the most enjoyable to watch as a long-time Spurs fan and a poor showing on the last day won't change that.
+3
Although league table shows we managed to get 1 point more than you, nobody can deny you were the far better team this season.

Lets hope you do well in ucl next season:)

Barring a ridiculous amount of goals being scored tomorrow, Harry Kane has won the golden boot! Completely deserved, he has been on fire this season.
