12 O’Clocker: I’m Told It IS Rose [edit: it is]

12 O’Clocker: I’m Told It IS Rose [edit: it is]

Gladys says that Danny Rose believes that The Sun are expediting his exit from White Hart Lane er.. Wembley er.. Daniel Levy’s spreadsheet.

The old girl has been wrong before – it’s the very nature of the itk beast – and anyone who has witnessed Glad getting amongst it by car headlamp can attest to the same.

Perhaps it is someone who is a genuine household name.

I would suggest that it is ‘perhaps’ time for some Spurs fans to acknowledge that the world is in actually quite round.

The gulf between the ‘excitement’ that Daniel harbours for the New Destination™ and what gets his dressing room ‘excited’ is significant enough to make core players not even think twice about bailing.

Fingers crossed that it isn’t Rose and that this bad itk, after all the Sessègnon steer was duff. And we were never loaned Benzema!

Sleep well, my dears.

  • antigooner August 12, 2017 at 8:27 am

    As a supporter of almost 60 years. Here is my ten pennorth.
    Whilst he does not earn ‘footballer wages’; Daniel Levy is the highest paid chairman in the league. So, it is disingenuous of him to peg our wage structure so low. It must be revised.
    However, I am a big fan of Mr Levy, as I never want the club to slip back to the days of Irving Scholar etc. We are a well run club with the potential to be a great club, when revenue from the the new stadium kicks in.
    Stop buying donkey’s like Sissoko and Jannsen and stop strengthening our competitors. At this rate, we shall have a great stadium but no players. And possibly no manager!
    Frustration kicking in!

    Think we all agree Rose should have spat his dummy out behind closed doors!
    As for Davies he has improved tremendously under Poch, if he improves again this season he will not be far from Rose’s best, maybe his equal. my worry is he gets injured, for Rose I am sure will be consigned to training on Hackney Marshes no matter the consequences.

  • Totspurs August 10, 2017 at 9:47 am

    He obviously has no respect fot the Club his Teamates or us the Fans! because if he did he wouldn’t be going to the papers a few day’s before the start of the season. The disruption this will have on the preperation is massive what a grade a twat!

    He’s clearly been tapped up him as Bonzo have been engineering moves away from the club he’s disrespected all the players who have stated that were in a good place. Obviously everyone and there dog can see we need key signings and the club should of had them sewn up before pre-season. on the wages front they agreed to there extensions so were happy at the time I do believe these would keep rising over the next few seasons as well. The money Man City can pay is disgusting.

    I can only see Rose for Shaw + Cash as the only half ok way out of this he needs to go imo.

  • caveman August 10, 2017 at 9:39 am

    If this was Toby, I would worry, but it’s an injured player that we finished 2nd without. Banish him for £60m to whoever.

    • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:38 am

      Not before we replace him! Davies is not the man

  • Elevenstonedidiots August 10, 2017 at 9:34 am

    It wasn’t so long ago when this jumped up little f*cker was a penalty waiting to happen. I don’t see anyway back from this interview. Best thing to do is get €30m + Luke Shaw from Man U. Shaw was very good under Poch at Southampton

    • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:37 am

      Shaw looks and plays like he’s swallowed a piano since joining united! No thanks

      Just collect 60 mill and employ a few servants to dish out the cheese boards

  • Matty k August 10, 2017 at 9:33 am

    Rise has been phenomenal at times for Spurs; a really quality Left Back. However, this is the 2nd time he has used the media to angle a sale for himself; the views he’s putting forward toward about transfers are valid, but doing so publicly undermines the team and Poch. Sadly, I feel we need to sell Rose for the same money as Walker and (take note Levy!) reinvest all of the proceeds into replacements. How can Rose continue at Spurs after essentially bashing the club in the public eye? Was bad enough on Talk Sport, and now in The Sun?! Who the fuck at Spurs gave this prick a 2nd opportunity to speak to the press?

  • caveman August 10, 2017 at 9:18 am

    I wonder how calm Levy and Pochettino are this morning. The bullshit stops here.

    • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:21 am

      But it’s too late unfortunately! The damage is done! Whatever about trying to replace walker or not trying!

      Rose is a different kettle of fish! He is a perfect lb.

    • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:30 am

      Rose has obviously asked for more money but fullbacks are not considered worthy of the same wage as star strikers or goalies.

      Rose was fairly average before Poch turned up and that obviously sticks in his craw. The fact there is interest in him from other clubs who’ll triple his wages is down to Poch, he should be more respectful.

      “I’m opinionated” no you aren’t you are a just a classless gobshite who could have just done this quietly. Makes Walker look almost dignified…

    • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 9:33 am

      Levy has a teflon face. The egg will be swept off with ease…

      • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:38 am

        I’m sure the PR dept are scurrying around preparing a carefully worded ‘message to our supporters’ as we speak…

  • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:16 am

    Best defence in the league we had!

    Walker gone

    Rose next

    Toby needs new deal

    There are no full backs around to replace walker and rose! I don’t agree with the timing and obviously mourihnio has been in his ear saying we want you but you have to do a bit of wriggling first.

    But on transfers he’s spot on and possibly wages. I’m not sure what he’s on but he’s the best lb in the league so he should be 100k at least!

    United can fuck off trying to dump shaw on us! If poch falls for that he’s a mutton head!

    • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:20 am

      Shaw is younger and Poch will know about him from his time at Saints. Maureen is incapable of making young players better.

      I would be happy to swap Rose for Shaw plus cash, Poch would do wonders with him.

      • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:26 am

        You can’t be serious!!! Shaw is a sick note! JM has had it with him! He won’t play through the slightest bit of pain! JM has showed his frustration with him so many times!

        We are going to have to google a good left back!

        Bertrand is ok but saints drive a hard bargain and probably wont let him go! Anybody else spring to mind?

        • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:36 am

          You haven’t factored in the fact that Maureen doesn’t like players and certainly defenders under 26 years old. You also haven’t factored in that Maureen isn’t interested in helping any player get fit or developing them.

          Poch is a great coach, Maureen knows how to put together a defensive counter attacking side with loads of money. Show doesn’t fit there.

          One last thing you haven’t factored in is that Maureen is a big kid and a fucking prick…

          • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:41 am

            I don’t need to factor that in as it’s all about JM to you!

            Factor in shaw is a sick note and barely made himself available!

            Factor in shaw wouldn’t lace roses boots!

            • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:44 am

              I thought Shaw looked very promising at Saints, more promising than Rose at that age. The only difference is one has played under Poch and the other hasn’t…

    • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 9:41 am

      Did Walker defend particularly? Toby and Jan have been the partnership behind the defensive record.

      Both Rose and Walker have been out for long periods injured and we have defended just as well. All we stand to lose is some width and pace out wide and Tripps replaces Walker adequately anyway.

      Stop getting your knickers in a twist…

  • Bruxie August 10, 2017 at 9:11 am

    Rose has used next year’s World Cup as motivation.

    A full season with us or with someone else will probably ensure he is England’s 1st choice.

    If he hasn’t gone by 31st, he will be gone next summer after the WC.

    Do we cash in now or next year. Kick him out or take a risk on his destabilising influence on the rest of the squad?

    All prospective world cup internationals need a good season this year…not sitting on a bench. They need to be playing in Europe and not getting injured.

    Stating the bloody obvious, I know, but Rose is looking after number one.

    What’s the worst that can happen to him?

    • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:19 am

      There’s nobody going to get in ahead of rose. Bertrand is probably the closest but I’d have rose all day.

  • cptcaveman August 10, 2017 at 8:52 am

    Only at Spurs. We have finished 3rd, and then 2nd in the league last year, we should be going into the season on a wave of optimisim….but no its a gunfight at the OK Corral. Tpyical bloody Spurs. As much as I detest Rose for his timing and for being disloyal to the coach that gave him confidence and turned him from zero to hero…its impossible not to agree with most of what he is saying. The wages bit I understand as currently we cant afford it but as for signing players….COME ON!! We finished 2nd last year SECOND…we did well but won f**k all…THIS IS THE TIME TO BUILD. Imagine coming so close to success two years on the trot…being able to smell it, touch it….then have your chairman come out and say ‘we will keep faith with our academy’. Im sorry, you wont win anything with kids unless you compliment those kids with experienced world class players. For all of the talk about the kids and the Man U days….they were surrounded with players like Keane and Cantona. Where is our Keane, who is our leader? Although Rose is a d**k for destablising this close to the beginning of the season, I cant blame him for feeling this way. Now I worry, if he feels like that, who feels the same?

    • YidInExile August 10, 2017 at 8:59 am

      Any sane Spurs player feels just as he does, i know i do

  • YidInExile August 10, 2017 at 8:51 am

    Think he’s not so sharp, but at least we got to hear an honest opinion, nowhere to hind now, suspect this view is shared by others as well

  • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:44 am

    Our two biggest wins of the season last year were achieved without both Walker and Rose.

    Just sayin’.

    • Camus August 10, 2017 at 8:50 am

      At the end of the season when Leicester and Hull had nothing to play for?

      • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:53 am

        Plenty of other clubs had nothing else to play for in the last couple of weeks. No one else took such heavy beatings.

        • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 8:57 am

          There’s also the 10 game PL winning streak with Ben Davies playing every minute

  • Camus August 10, 2017 at 8:33 am

    The £2mill Gazzaniga deal will happen fast now, I imagine. Levy needs to pull off a big move and have a positive message to whitewash over this and pretend it isn’t happening. That should do the trick.

  • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 8:32 am

    ” I got a lot of stick before Mauricio came to the club. I’ll never forget some of the things they were saying about me.”
    It’s all your fault!

  • Camus August 10, 2017 at 8:15 am

    Supposing the view within Spurs is that Rose’s position is now untenable and we flog him off (which may be what he’s after). We lose. He’s a better left-back than Davies or any other left-back that we’d buy – right now, for this season, in the Poch system.
    Conundrum.

    • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:23 am

      *If* Rose is angling for a move away, a swap deal involving Luke Shaw wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world.

      • Camus August 10, 2017 at 8:26 am

        I can see the logic there for sure, but is Shaw damaged goods?

        • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:28 am

          He played more games in the back end of last season than Rose did.

          He’s had a couple of horrible injuries, for sure, but seems to be over them now.

          • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 8:50 am

            I’d take a swap for Shaw and Martial

            • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:52 am

              I would now.

          • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:10 am

      • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 9:00 am

        Get out!

        GET THE FUCK OUT!!

  • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:13 am

    This is what Danny Rose had to say less than a year ago, after agreeing to (and signing) the latest contract put to him:

    http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news/first-team/general/danny-rose-on-club-longevity-and-ledley-king-050916/

    There’s something very fishy about all for this. He’s clearly dropped a massive bollock by agreeing to the interview in the first place, but I think there’s a large degree of misdirection going on here.

    • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 8:15 am

      I think you’re clutching at straws mate. He’s got nowhere inside the family and has decided to go full Fredo on us.

      Ask Ron for further details.

      • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:21 am

        If his comments haven’t been taken out of context I’d just like to know what has happened in the year since he made them to have made him so seemingly bitter.

        After everything he’s has to say in the past about life at Spurs and under Pochettino Danny Rose is virtually the last player I would have expect to hear this from.

        My pitchfork isn’t coming out just yet.

        • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 8:28 am

          Mine is. However this might have been twisted, and yes I agree it might have been to a certain extent, he’s walked into a hotel room with a Sun reporter, obviously off his own back, and blabbed his opinions for the world to see. I’d completely understand if he wants more money and success, it’s his career, but this isn’t the way to do it. He’s fucked everyone over.

          • UnkleTaff August 10, 2017 at 8:40 am

            It’s hard not to agree with this.

            That “players you don’t have to Google” comment smacks of something that was said “off the record”, though. I’m currently trying to favour the “he’s been stitched up” point of view but it was a monumentally stupid idea to agree to the interview in the first place.

            • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 8:47 am

              It’s like a drunk rant, the whole thing, and early versions of the interview seemed to be hashed together in a hurry. Or maybe I haven’t read the Sun for a while.
              It’s full of contradictions, on one hand he’s saying that him and all his teammates are not being paid what they are worth, on the other he’s praising Levy for doing a brilliant job. He’ll listen to offers, but he wants to stay and wants to win the PL at Wembley this year.
              He’s been done, and he’s done us, his boss and his teammates good and proper.
              So gutted, he epitomised everything that we are about on the pitch.
              For Gary Neville to come out with a WTF really does show how thick this is. He’d usually be straight on the case for Manure to buy him.
              Silly, silly boy.

          • MysteriousStranger August 10, 2017 at 8:54 am

            It would be nice if the club showed both the fans and team a little more ambition to consolidate our position, fancy stadium or not. I don’t hate Rose for expressing some frustration. I have also said before, I also understand if a player who isn’t a Spurs fan wants to consider his options.

  • OrganicPaper August 10, 2017 at 7:47 am

    As I said on another thread yesterday “He is class…not world class”
    I was clearly wrong. The boy has about as much class as an Iceland Prawn Ring at a wedding buffet.(Ok I’m still tired, I need more coffee to concoct better ‘funnies’).

    Quite how Poch wI’ll view this little arse hole’s rant will be interesting. I doubt he will even want to consider selecting him with clearly no commitment to ‘the cause.

    The little oik hasn’t even kicked a ball since January!

  • blackfish August 10, 2017 at 7:46 am

    As everyone knows he is close to poch. Who knows poch might ask him to say such things to give some electric shocks to the baldy and also negate the unanimous opinions of most senior players on new signing.

  • Camus August 10, 2017 at 7:44 am

    The feeling is mixed out there in social media land.
    We’re seeing some backlash against Rose, for the timing, for coming across a bit ‘mercenary’, and others feel he’s just telling it like it is and echoing what many fans have been saying for a while about ambition, signings, wages etc. More as I get it.

  • Lahdedah August 10, 2017 at 7:38 am

    So, now that I’m 65 I’ve realized that I’ve become cynical and as a result I have decided that I’m going to put my best jacket on, complete with a sturdy coat hanger still inside it, and I’m going to suspend myself inside the coat closet for the entire season. I’ll be swinging on the coat rail in a deep slumber. I’m not coming out until May 2018 when hopefully, this season is all done with. It’s premier league hibernation, Canadian style. I’m not even coming out for the January window, fuck it. I may smell a bit when it’s all over.

  • Ronan August 10, 2017 at 5:39 am

    I know it was celebrated hard on here, but selling the league’s highest-rated right-back to the title favourites sent out a message that was limp. No club that is serious about challenging for the title would be willing to strengthen the title favourites in an area where they are desperate to improve.

    This weak message was clearly received by Danny Rose, and likely by every other Spurs player and predator. For the damage it’s caused not to be terminal, a massive, counteractive statement of intent had to be sent out while the transfer window was still open. If it isn’t, then what will possibly persuade Dele, Eriksen, Toby to stay when the offers come in next summer?

  • Lilywhite August 10, 2017 at 3:14 am

    This is a total shitstorm going from bad to worse very quickly. I don’t understand how anyone can misconstrue or spin this interview as anything other than damaging – a player, not a Spurs supporter, who sees other players of equal or even less quality making and winning more money and trophies than himself. He has a limited shelf life. His counter-part just left for double the money and trophies. He wants out. I don’t totally blame him. We are heading in the opposite direction we need to be going in at this critical juncture.

    AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!

  • Lilywhite without the II August 10, 2017 at 2:30 am

    Sounds like he’s pissed that some players don’t have enough competition when they play poor (which points to his comment about our bench being shit), wants more money (whatever), wants more signings (he wants to win stuff) and not too pleased Walker was sold by the sounds of it…
    He said he’s been a fan for 6months (highly bloody paid one with a new contract you were happy with at the time ahh?) so probably seen it from our point of view…
    The second Walker was sold it was always going to change the dynamics regardless of what your opinion off him was…should’ve shipped him off to Europe but as Poch said “City are in a different place”, meaning we can’t compete so it doesn’t matter if you have our best players..theres plenty in there he really should’ve kept his mouth shut such as speaking about team mates earnings etc and the timing is planned so fuck you..
    He also makes a big point about how he was treated by the fans (us) 3 years ago which I can’t blame him for.
    Still, this will be music to Levy’s ear whilst spreading his paint colour chart across the boardroom table..

  • David Dillenberg August 10, 2017 at 2:17 am

    Late in on the scene surely the only way Spurs will ever compete with the elite attracting marquee signings and paying top table wages is following any successful sugar daddy takeover bid which could be quicker than we think if Spurs season collapses turning toxic against the current regime.

    I think what Levy needs to do is put every first team player on at least 100K per season.

    Fakinel Syd, £100k a season! Er, ok.

  • Finn August 10, 2017 at 1:52 am

    As a top table side we need to pay top table wages to keep and secure new players: Levy needs to keep pace and adjust his strategy to accommodate the improved status of the club (with the solid help by the playing staff) and to deal with the rapid and ongoing changes in the transfer market over the past 12 months.

    Having said that, if Rose was complaining about his wages, perhaps he should also consider how much actual work he’s done of late!

  • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 1:43 am

    I know it’s only the Daily Star but they were running the article how much does each clubs players earn, think you maybe surprised that we are not as bad at paying wages as is sometimes reported in the press or quoted by anti Spurs pundits.
    Out of the top 7 clubs last season with a average squad of 22 players approx 28 earned over £100,000p/w, of those most were still at £100,000 – £125,000.
    Out of that 28 approx 12 earn upwards of £150,000p/w
    It’s worth reading in my useless opinion

    He’s correct about getting his worth but his worth is in an over inflated market. All the other stuff is just designed to get a move to a club who’ll treble his money.
    He’s not being honest at all, he’s pretending to be honest. He just wants more money, pure and simple…

    Easty, it definitely is an over inflated market but it IS the market so it sort of contradicts itself. I think what Levy needs to do is put every first team player on at least 100K per season. Those players like Rose and Toby on much less need to be paid what they are worth to at least some extent in this over inflated market.

  • Willie! August 10, 2017 at 1:22 am

    Good lord, the drama queens on here are absurd. Do ya’ll need a fainting couch? You’d think he’d just shot your dog and stole your kid’s bicycle.

    Rose was 100% correct, and I glad somebody in the squad finally had the balls to say what needs to be said. WIN SOMETHING, stop fucking around with trying to be too clever by half in the transfer market, pay players what they’re worth. The game is about glory, you get a short window as a player, and some bald cnut who shouldn’t be within ten miles of a football boardroom is fucking up that legit chance for the best team we’ve had in most of our lifetimes (‘cept maybe Ron, but he’s older than dirt) to go on and win stuff.

    He specifically said he wasn’t after a transfer, he wants to win things and he knows he’s closer to the end of his career than the beginning. He’s at his peak, he can stay there maybe 3 more years, then it’s downhill. Nothing remotely controversial in what he said. But knee jerk drama contingent is calling for his head. Get. A. Grip.

    • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 10, 2017 at 1:21 am

      Agreed. And it sounds like he’s angling for Man City.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 10, 2017 at 1:34 am

        The pep guardiola book of coaching. My teams can’t defend for shit…who’s got the best defence? Spurs, Right….I’ll buy em all!

  • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 1:10 am

    Walker and Rose are both very good fullbacks, that’s FULL BACKS, not 20+ goal strikers, not even 15+ assists midfielders.

    While I agree that Levy and ENIC are small time people running a big time operation I am of the opinion that an injury prone English left back is not worth 120k a week (or whatever).

    However, this is about the insane money being thrown around by about 8 clubs around Europe raising the earning potential of any player that can angle for a move to one of them.

    Once Utd, Citeh or Chavs consider players such as Rose or Walker as a priority signing then they suddenly have an earning potential 3x of what they can earn anywhere outside that 8 bankrolled group of clubs.

    I have no idea why ENIC will not raise the bar to at least keep a first eleven together but they won’t.

    I personally feel that Rose and Walker are very good pace merchants and give much to the team they play in. However they are overrated as footballers because they’re English and because they’ve been playing under the best management they ever have experienced.

    I don’t blame them for wanting their moves if they feel they can get them. Walker basically said little and went for the money,

    I would advise Rose to do a similar thing, shut his trap and go and treble his wages elsewhere.

    This isn’t about trophies it’s about money, he’s only ‘worth’ what he thinks he is to clubs that pay reasonable defenders 150k a week.

    If you can get to one of these clubs and get paid shit loads then good luck, but just spare us the horse shit about trophies and missing your Mum.

    It’s insulting to the fans and it makes you look like a spineless prick who won’t give the real reason you want to leave.

    Danny Rose, you are a pillock. Good luck, and fuck off…

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 10, 2017 at 1:10 am

  • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 1:00 am

    I just so don’t get it. If he wants a move then just say it, it’s not as if he’s fucking holding anything back, but he’s taking about getting back to playing and not wanting out. How is that possible after giving this interview?

    • McG ⚽⚽ August 10, 2017 at 1:12 am

      Poch told him to do it, all part of the cunning plan. We get 60 mil plus Shaw…

    • East Stand August 10, 2017 at 1:14 am

      He’s a spineless coward who’s clearly thinks fans are stupid.

  • Yeoyid August 10, 2017 at 12:58 am

    he wants to play up north.
    Scunthorpe? Carlisle? Rockall?

    • Chris August 10, 2017 at 1:03 am

      Up north and win trophies, the board should say it’ll only consider selling him to Celtic XD

  • Chris August 10, 2017 at 12:58 am

    Can’t help but feel he’s had a fair amount of advice of what to say in the interview to make him remaining untenable. The ‘players you don’t have to Google’ line is sure to rankle a few in the dressing room. I have no doubt he’s our best left back and one of (if not) the best left back(s) in the league, but it seems that understandably his heart and head aren’t in it.
    At 27 and off the back of a six month lay off, will he be the same player and will he have the commitment and desire to play for the chicken badge? If there’s top dollar and it’s guaranteed to be spent, is it worth taking it and letting him go and praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster that we get someone in that convinces the rest of dressing room not to cut and run?
    No idea who that would be, I’m not sure Bertrand or Shaw are going to make Alli, Eriksen and Toby think they might get something shiny to put on their mantelpieces, but that doesn’t seem to be the plan does it?!

  • Andreas August 10, 2017 at 12:58 am

    • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 1:02 am

      Because he’s a player for the club? An employee? He’s not a fucking pundit.

    • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 10, 2017 at 1:03 am

      Both 27 year olds that rely on pace, both with injury records, ever diminishing returns I’m afraid.

      If Poch gets to spend the funds HIS way then I’m not that arsed about it.

  • Andreas August 10, 2017 at 12:48 am

    Once rose goes, then it’s Ericksen and Delli.Agents will be in their ear. What does this say about our club? It hurts us as fans, but be honest,do any of us really believe that our owners are trying to win trophies? If they were we would have Poch’s first choice signings already done.

  • Andreas August 10, 2017 at 12:40 am

    As the Scum journo said, he didn’t think he is asking for a move now, rather, he’s aiming a shot across the boughs (at Levy), as to whether the club has any real ambition. I don’t approve of his methods, but it’s not a complete surprise considering Levy’s financial intransigence.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 10, 2017 at 12:45 am

      That’s what’s goin to go down. And a lot won’t agree but i think hes set us up to fail this year so theyl all come to him. Think of the pure profit on Ali Kane Dier Toby rose. A season outside the top 4 is nuffin to levy with that dangling in front of him. Their value wont drop in a year. Enic have got more than just the football side to plunder now.

        • Freund or Foe August 10, 2017 at 12:31 am

              It’s exactly the same thing Cas. It’s a rant that has undermined Poch, Levy, his team mates and the entire club, a few days before the season starts, and it seems to be on purpose.

              • caveman August 10, 2017 at 12:54 am

                He’s a little scumbag.

              • Caspurs♿️ August 10, 2017 at 1:06 am

                I don’t agree with his methods, and my comment below follows your comment on % of turnover to salaries, which is now becoming a problem due to the teams success. I’m sure he’s not the only player who thinks they are worth more, which is what I find frustrating. Spurs cannot increase income t the same rate, which is creating a deficit between what the players think they’re worth, and what the club can afford.
                It feels like 4/5 years ago when only 4 teams competed for the CL places due to the financial disparity with the other league teams.
                I don’t however see Levy as completely innocent in all this, as his propensity for penny pinching, has at times held the club back, and whether true or not, it has given the impression Levy/the club have demonstrated a lack of ambition.
                The players are becoming more ambitious due to the elevated league position, and at the moment the club doesn’t appear to reflect that same ambition, whether that be with transfers or salaries, this is going to be Levy’s biggest challenge to date.

    Didn’t take long for Levy’s low wage scheme to backfire……….

  • Erik August 9, 2017 at 11:55 pm

    Can’t pay top players a third of what they are worth, it doesn’t happen in the real world sadly.

    • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 11:57 pm

      How can a club with a certain income, suddenly increase salaries to the level of the oil clubs? The transition cannot happen overnight.

      • Erik August 10, 2017 at 12:03 am

        Then there is only one outcome, but Everton are willing to pay Siggy 150k a week, and Watford are paying Troy Deeney 100k a week.
        Rose is on 60k a week, the best left back in the league FFS.

        • Caspurs♿️ August 10, 2017 at 12:09 am

          So we should pay the entire team £150k a week? That would increase our wage bill by £60-75m a year, meaning salaries will account for over 80% of turnover, would you run your business like that?
          Take a moment to think about it.

            Paying him more than sissoko would be a start.

        • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 10, 2017 at 12:14 am

          Erik shun Caspurs’ nasty words.

          • Caspurs♿️ August 10, 2017 at 12:17 am

            Nasty?

            • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 10, 2017 at 12:45 am

              It was more about the “Erik Shun” opportunity.

              • Caspurs♿️ August 10, 2017 at 1:16 am

                I got that, but Erik shun nasty? Never!

  • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 11:54 pm

    Jason Cunty is such a thick cunt.

  • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 11:52 pm

    • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 11:53 pm
