Schneiderlin Speaks

Schneiderlin Speaks

Much has been made of of the Pochettino template. Talk of pressing at The Lane is usually reserved for discussions about getting one’s dancing trousers ready for a Magistrates Court appearance. We’ve been told that the training regime is tougher under Morrie. Rather than disappear up our own vernaculars speculating on what any of this might actually mean (so far ... Read More »

Full Game vs FC Toronto

Full Game vs FC Toronto

Toronto aren’t much cop, but to turn that into a positive, I thought we looked noticeably fit and occasionally quite fluid. There were fleeting glimpses of push and run, pass and go. That sort of thing. It may well be the case that the hosts are up to their ears in domestic fixtures, and were more interested in avoiding injuries ... Read More »

Glyfi Gone

Glyfi Gone

This photo has just emerged on Twitter, a screen shot from Sky Sports News. SSN believe Sigurðsson was in south Wales on this morning for a medical and the deal is supposed to be worth in the region of £8million. It’s a pity to see Gylfi Thór go. But then he won’t be the first decent footballer to not quite click ... Read More »

Vorm Done

Vorm Done

We’ve signed Michel Vorm for a fee thought to be worth up to £5m including add-ons. The former Swansea goalie told De Telegraaf: Every top club now has two top keepers under contract, it fits in with the policy of a great club to have needed for the various competitions which will be played.” A thoroughly sound, if not completely ...

New Boy Snapped Training With Us?

New Boy Snapped Training With Us?

Good evening where you are. Is this Ben Davies in training with our brave lads? Talking Tottenham have published the above snap in good faith. There is one other doing the rounds, but frankly that could be more or less anyone. By saying more or less anyone, I ought add the caveat that it simply isn’t clear who it is, ... Read More »

Medical!

Medical!

How we chortled when my great uncle Fred saw our top loading Sony C5 Betamax. He took dad to one side and asked him. “I’d be interested in one of them. Do you think if I sold my TV – it’s quite new – it would cover the cost of one?” Here I am in 2014 wondering how a medical ... Read More »

Nice Quoteage

Nice Quoteage

The quote that will be doing the rounds like nobody’s business of course is the “Tottenham is a bigger club” one. I’ve no axe to grind with Southampton, and an IQ in triple figures, so this isn’t a quote I’d be in a hurry to emblazon on a t shirt. But what does impress me far more is that the ... Read More »

A Fee Agreed, Another Deal Close To Done

A Fee Agreed, Another Deal Close To Done

Some bold claims from Sky Sportsnews’ Lyall Thomas on social media in the last 24 hours. The deal for Swansea City’s Ben Davies is supposed to be close, which may suggest that somewhere between the £47.32 Levy & Co initially offered, and the reported £12m that the ailing Swans were after. If Siggy is to be sold, and my gut ... Read More »
