Swap deals in football don’t really exist. Player contracts are so convoluted that clubs don’t trade players like Top Trump cards or marbles in the school playground.

Just like the ‘oh yeah, they still owe us such and such for the last guy we sold them, so we’ll just knock that off’ is also the construction of more than mildly cretinous minds.

So for the The Daily Star‘s Luke Gardener聽to cobble together a Supermarket Sweep clearance type deal is plain embarrassing.

As reported on this blog recently, the 拢200million valuation placed upon Harry Kane was a throwaway remark on a Spanish sports show, opposed to informed comment.

Bale, Benzema and Modric in return for Kane is the work of a dull child. The salaries of these three varyingly super superstars alone would negate such a plan, but to apply common sense to the proposal is to give off the wrong impression. This garbage mustn’t be taken seriously, just dismissed.

Kane’s going nowhere. He’s staying at Spurs (boom boom).

    Just watching the under 17s on Eurosport 2, playing Mexico 馃嚥馃嚱 in the second group game.
    Brewster missed a sitter, then scored a beautiful free kick.
    We lead the 1st half. 1- 0. Good game at the moment.

    Maths is obviously not there strong point . Bale 40mil benzema 15-20mil the same for modric , those prices are based on what levy would pay and the fact there all in the twilight of there career. That makes a modest 70-80 mil for Kane. My counter offer to the star is this
    Bale,modric,benzema,Isco,Ramos, Kroos,Ronaldo and 75mil

      Spelling is obviously not your strong point.

        No it isn’t but splitting your time between 2 countries can do that to people,also trying to write in English when your phone is set German doesn’t help either,so I suppose the last thing I need is twatty keyboard warriors making sarcastic comments

        • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 10:28 am

          Touchy, i understand, you’ve only got one phone, must be difficult, have a nice day !

          • Flynnbob October 11, 2017 at 10:32 am

            Congratulations on having multiple phones , you probably keep them next to your framed ASBO

            • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 10:37 am

              As i said, have a nice day.

              • Flynnbob October 11, 2017 at 10:55 am

                I wish you to a nice day

                  You were close, it’s multiple ipads, not phones..

        Whereas sneering at rape victims is one of yours.


  • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 10:17 am

    Lamela and Foyth have become good friends and Lamela hosted Llorente and Foyth for some barbecued meat the other night.

    There is no actual football to talk about.

    • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 10:19 am

      Gazzaniga wasn’t invited apparently

  • McG鈿解毥寞 October 11, 2017 at 9:52 am

    I’m gonna apply a job at the daily star if they’re willing to pay for this kinda crap!

    • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:53 am

      You’d be a Star !

        You could do the betting tips, I’ll take over the fantasy footie..

        • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 10:30 am

          A couple of years ago my friend was head hunted to run The Sun’s fantasy fooite. Couldn’t believe his luck – it was like a dream job come true.

          Now he runs a retro football shirt company.

          • MysteriousStranger October 11, 2017 at 11:15 am

            I love a happy ending.

  • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:52 am

    Danny Rose January move to Man Utd ?

    “I want to win something.

    I will say this too 鈥 I will play up north. I don鈥檛 know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere.

    I moved away from home (from Leeds to Spurs) at 16.

    In any walk of life, if you think you are worth a certain amount, why settle for less? I am not that person.”

    Back in training next week, should get some decent game time to show his prowess before a 拢50m transfer to Man Utd, would happily take Luke Shaw in part exchange (拢20m). Once DR spoke out he was “Toast.”

    • McG 鈿解毥 October 11, 2017 at 10:02 am

      Selling our best players to rivals isn’t the soundest of plans. We refused to sell Dier, I’m not convinced he’s off just yet.

      • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 10:18 am

        We sold Walker to Man City, had Man Utd offered enough Dier would be theirs, the liklihood is that’s where he’ll end up. I hope i’m wrong, i was in 1977 when Virginia Wade won Wimbledon !

    • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 10:15 am

      Pretty sure the sale of Rose depends on landing Sessegning

  • SeanD1882 October 11, 2017 at 9:34 am

    A dull child indeed. Or someone who is employed to write for such embarrassments as the Daily Star……surely in the same bracket of tosh reporting as the daily mail. As you mention, swap deals just aren’t possible due to no two contracts being the same. hey ho, maybe it worked for him while playing a bit of footy manager…….

  • caveman October 11, 2017 at 9:31 am

    Can’t believe that ‘the Guardian ‘ are running this rumour too!

  • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:28 am

    The sooner this Window closes the better !

  • Spurs est_1882 October 11, 2017 at 9:25 am

    Always gets me how people seem to forget salaries of players when they link them. Bale would want at least 拢250k a week, Modders wouldn’t join us I doubt (even if Real were willing to release a player in the last 30 of the ballon d’or, and arguably one of the best deep lying midfielders in the world).

    Dozens of women speaking out about Harvey Weinstein, they were all content to keep quiet for years, some even decades, allowing him to abuse many others for the sake of their own careers.

    • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:26 am

      Nearly all of the women now castigating him attempted to use him to further their own career, the guy obviously used his position for his own ends but these women are also at fault for the exploitation, now they are jumping on the bandwagon of publicity.

      • MysteriousStranger October 11, 2017 at 11:10 am

        Listen to the audio from the sting. He鈥檚 scum. But you prefer to question the honour motives of the alleged victims. As charming as ever Raz.

          Charm School closure announcement came as no surprise local man told police…

        • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:09 pm

          You seem as confused as HH, read my posts with an open mind, had earlier victims came forward at the time many would have been spared the abuse, common sense really but with your twisted spin it looks so different, why am i not surprised ?

    • Harry Hotspur October 11, 2017 at 9:43 am

      Sex abuse victims tend to keep quiet.

      Were the kids Cyril Smith raped advantaged by being sodomised by the fat unhygienic fuck?

    • Aussie in Switzerland October 11, 2017 at 10:54 am

      Shhhhh, don鈥檛 mention his donations to the Democrats

      • MysteriousStranger October 11, 2017 at 11:06 am

        So why mention it at all? Meanwhile nobody questionable has ever donated to the Republicans, I鈥檓 sure. Utterly irrelevant.

  • caveman October 11, 2017 at 9:20 am

    And rightly so.
