So schneiderlin won't be coming in I'm assuming,but would like some info on this new guy.anyone know how much he's costing?
Deal worth around £4.7m
To asnwer your question below, Rogue...Cloudst and Thirteengoals both follow League 1. Cloudst's opinion is that Stambouli's not good enough for our level and THirteengoals is saying that the player is just about decent. Other information I've found is that he is incredibly card happy and strays too far upfield. His passing range is not that great, but he keeps the ball simple.

Why're we looking to sell Sandro and/or Holtby and getting this guy who's probably on the same level as Bentaleb at 24?

Its on their official website. I'm very sceptical, but at the same time, I trust Poch.
Sad about Sandro, could have been a top class player if it wasn't for those knee injuries which are hard to recover from, the guy is a beast but tough luck for him.
Yeah mag it is a strange one,rarely do you see a transfer pop up completely out of nowhere,I mean even with dier we heard a bit of info before hand,it's really odd.
Doesn't sound like the best player,if he wanted a player in that ilk for cheap then keep Livermore,or one of the lads we already have,I know we are counting the pennies for the stadium,but we can spend a little bit,lol
Stambouli, CDM/CB?

In any case I like his name.
Does this mean goodbye Holtby?
Apparently he's a less good Capoo with the ability to sub in anywhere along the Backline. I feel like this more spells the end for Sandro than Holtby. Rather, Paulinho and the promise of not sucking May spell goodbye for Lewis, as we are (reportedly) close to a loan-to-buy deal with Hamburg for LewLew.

So here we are, possibly on the verge of losing 2 fan favorites in 1 window. Re:Sandro- as much as I love the guy, he has yet to replicate his pre injury form, or stay fit for more than a few months at a time. It was the middle of AVB year 1 when "the beast is hurt" tweet broke hearts across the spurs fan base. He did good breaking up the attack against ael, but you have to wonder what a real competitor with pace and trickery would do to him. Also, his tackles have started to look more reckless than ruthless, making him look more like a card liability in the few games he's played than anything.

With Lewis, it's truly hard. Talented and hardworking, young and charismatic, he's endeared himself to almost all of our hearts. Yet, 2 seasons later, he's not a clear starter over anyone. A back up for many, yet it's a hard sell to pitch him over Lamela, Eriksen, Bentaleb, Capoue, or even Chadli/Townsend/Lennon. He backs up many, but beats none.

Two questions. Could you blame either for wanting more minutes? Neither are going to be out and out starters this season. Also, if their off field personalities are not a factor, how much do you miss them in the squad? I love them both, but I think holtby has endeared me with his Instagrams as. Much (or more) than his contribution on the field.
I like Both Sandro and Holtby admittedly there is some online presence bias I have over Holtby but with Poch's new philosophy its as if the energy to chase down after the ball is no longer an asset to have on our team since most of the players are (will be) actually doing it. We need more than energy. If the management lets go of Lewis I'm pretty sure they know what they're doing especially Poch who is a big fan of youth.

That being said I'd rather see the beast go, knee injuries are hard to recover from and it certainly doesn't help if you're holding a defensive role. Stambouli looks like a guy who can defend well, connect from long range, (both passes and shots) and I believe is only 24 years old.

As for your questions @fish

1. Minutes aren't given, they are earned. Everybody wants more but if they aren't deserving, why give them?

2. I agree. If Holtby wasn't so active in the social media, fans wouldn't moan as much for him. Although our footytube community in particular likes him very much compared to twitter. But meh.
Daniel Busch @dan_bu

Lewis Holtby reportedly agreed personal terms with HSV. Beiersdorfer in talks with Tottenham now.
This is my worst nightmare. Sandro, Holtby... and linked with the likes of Song and Walbeck and buying some weird guy who is probably a stop gap till we get a better target next window. Ugh.
Lol Song to WHam for a season loan, no worries. As for Welbeck...

Let's wait for deadline day :D

Edit: who knows about Stam..Stron,,,Dave, I'll call him. Who here really watches the French league? Maybe he's good? (Deluded And hopeful lol...)
Can we please call him Stromboli?
http://www.thetottenhamway.com/2014/08/29/montpellier-announce-spurs-signed-french-midfielder/?


What? When? Who? How? Stumped here!
+1
Hold on a minute,we wasn't informed about this,in all honesty I've never heard of the guy,we need a French league watcher to give us a hand,I think one of the main Gooners is.zilch?
Koeman can shut the f**k up. Hypocrite. Poch never uttered a word about Schneiderlin and has remained classy throughout, but Koeman has been increasingly vocal about both Schneiderlin and Townsend. Getting on my nerves. Can the window end already?
+1
48 hours to hold on mags. (:

Make it move faster, Batman. Turn into superman. Turn the world forward or some s**t.

Batman enjoys Deadline Day, sorry.
Poch is funny, playing with Danny Rose

“The manager texted me at 10 past nine and said ‘can you come to my office?’ I was thinking ‘what have I done?’

“I went to his office and he sat me down and said ‘I’ve got something to tell you – we’ve accepted a bid, we’re selling you’. I said ‘no you’re not’.

“He said ‘yes it’s true’ and one of the other coaches walked in and said ‘have you told him he’s got to go?’

“But then after that he told me he was at the Milton Keynes game the night before, against Man United, and he heard a rumour that I might have a chance of being selected [for England]. Later on that night the England manager called me and he verified it.

http://www.tottenhamjournal.co.uk/tottenham-hotspur/tottenham_hotspur_2_3754/spurs_star_danny_rose_reveals_pochettino_s_humorous_side_after_england_call_up_1_3749650

Abit more from the interview which i think is quite important and has looked true from his PL games so far.

“He’s made me better defensively, tactically and he encourages the full-backs to get forward as much as possible,” said Rose. “Since we’ve been back, over the eight weeks or so, I reckon I’ve got a lot better defensively and tactically.

“Concentration’s one thing we’ve looked at. Sometimes I lapsed in concentration last season and I might have relied on my pace to get me out of trouble. But the manager’s made me a lot better tactically, and whenever we do lose the ball he wants it back as soon as possible, and it’s good.

“I thought I started last season well under AVB [Andre Villas-Boas] and then I got injured and I never really managed to get match-fit properly.

“Even this season, our nutritionist said that I’ve lost a bit of weight since last season and I didn’t really realise - but I can feel it when I’m out there playing. I feel strong going into 70 or 80 minutes, whereas last season I was tiring.”
+5
Haha that's awesome
Classic haha. He obviously likes Rose, saw him joking around with him last night as well.
I'm glad he's got rose playing well,so far I'm over the moon with Poch,picking the right teams,saying the right things,and the football has been brilliant,only early new doors but the signs are great
+2
Saw this. lol. Pretty funny.
People seem to still think its a matter of time until Davies comes into the team, however, with the mistakes cut out, Rose is a superior player offensively and defensively in my opinion.
Rose is the better athlete, Davies better positionally and technically. Rose gets forward more, but I'd say their crossing/shooting is fairly equal. When we just can't afford the possibility of a lapse in concentration, I'd go with davies. If we need some more punch on the left, Rose.
Sigs or Ade for Fantasy F captain?
Aguerro

Dier
Fakin No Wan
Group C
-Tottenham
-Besistas
-Partizan
-Asteras
Not that strong of a group, we should qualify. Looking forward to Besiktas. Away game against them would be crucial.

We'll be marching to Warsaw! COYS!
If we don't walk that group I'll be worried
+1
you should be able to get through that group

watch out for besiktas their pitch is crap :P but they will come at you quick and fast
Yeah I think besiktas were unlucky the other night,but they don't shoot or cross
+1
Besiktas are awful, I watched both games. Arsenal just played badly both times.
well our squad is still having to gel but don't take them lightly paddy BA is no push over it looks a lot better after leaving Chelsea
+1
They trounced Chelsea in preseason too, definitely don't take them lightly

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445393/europa-league-harry-kane-earns-mauricio-pochettino-praise-after-tottenhams-win

-Poch really does value youth progression, and I like how he is playing all the right players at the right times as well. Dier has been forced to step up due to injury to Walker, and Naughton suspension. But at the same time Poch has still rotated the defenders well, getting everyone fit and working them into the system.

Will be interesting to see who plays against Liverpool.


http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445124/premier-league-tottenham-midfielder-lewis-holtby-wants-regular-first-team-football

-Holtby would obviously be frustrated by lack of first team football. But despite Poch's limited use of Holtby I have never had a moment of "where are you not playing holtby?!". I haven't had any qualms with the teams Poch has picked and so I cannot disagree with this article really. Silver lining is Holtby admits his first choice would obviously to be playing for Spurs.

I just can't see him starting in our squad unfortunately.

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445035/transfer-news-tottenham-want-danny-welbeck-on-loan-but-end-alex-song-interest

-I never had any faith in getting Song, but I hated the idea we were after Welbeck. However after learning that it would only be a loan deal and Poch isn't interested in signing him permanently at all. Then it might not be a bad idea.

+2
I swear every time I buy Welbeck in FM he scores a shedload of goals. Obviously not necessarily the best recommendation but still true ;)
Looking at Poch's reign so far:

Games played: 9

Games won: 8

Games drawn: 1

Goals scored: 26 (3 goals per game)

Goals conceded: 9 (under 1 goal per game)

Looking good Poch, looking good (JUST DON'T SELL HOLTBY!!!)
+3
Yeah he's started well,the players are learning and I think when you have a manager who focusing so much on a philosophy then the players buy into that
Well, AVB had a philosophy and that didn't work out too well. They key difference is that Poch has a philosophy that makes sense.
+3
AVB is just a s**t man manager (as it stands) and he is actually very defensive. HIs teams have been made to look a lot better thanks Hulk, Falcao, Mata and Bale. Take out these players and I don't think he would've done as well. Poch is well regarded as a manager who looks after the players buy also has a philosophy and understands that philosophy in detail, plus is willing to adapt.

It's early days, but I think he was a great appointment!
+1
Miss
Expected a miss,lol
lol.
