Decision – Possibly In Days

Decision – Possibly In Days

It looks like recent ITK suggesting that not all the players are hypnotised by the the New Destination™ may be on point.

Wimmer is quoted in the Mirror as saying: “It would be the most beautiful to stay in the Premier League. Twenty-four years is exactly the age at which it is most important to play regularly and not only have to train week after week and have to sit down on the bench at the game.

In the next few days and weeks, the main focus will certainly be placed on what is there for offers, and we will definitely look around, it’s time to look for something, where the chances of regular use are again higher.”

He added: “In Cologne, I experienced three super years. I believe that Cologne is always a very nice step for me, you have to look at what happens. But I would prefer it if I could remain in the Premier League.”

Wimmer’s problem is that given his position he’s only ever going to get offered walk-on parts at Spurs because he’s behind Vert’s and Toby. To be clear, how other big clubs operate is to pay their understudies enough to make them to suffer the bench time.

If Wimmer leaves, it will be a pity because he’s precisely the right calibre of backup player Spurs need.

Next season could be the 24 year old’s 3rd at Spurs however the Austrian is contracted until 2021, so the odds of him getting an enhanced deal at Tottenham must be nigh on zero.

        Phase 1- Fans wanting STs in the new gaff are forced to buy Wembley tickets
        Phase 2- Make sure they’ve all paid before completing any transfer business
        Phase 3- Take the phone off the hook

    Forget £60M I would only sell Dier to Manure on the strict condition that Martia or Rashford is part of the package.
    My preference is Martial and Luke Shaw.

    • modricbigtoe July 11, 2017 at 5:14 pm

      I would take Martial and that young right back they have, he will be a top top harry redknapp type player one day

  • jod July 11, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    If a player is happy to just sit on the bench as long as he’s well paid is he really the sort of player you want at the club ? A player who has no real ambition to be the best he can be isn’t going to take the club anywhere but backwards.

    • Harry Hotspur July 11, 2017 at 5:07 pm

      You can only field XI at a time and some Blue Peter bravado about having a plucky youngster on the bench is embarrassing.

      When Chelsea thumped us, did they bring on a pair of haircuts on YTS wages? No.

      You pay men to be soldiers and if they are incapable of accepting the money and the mission then you find someone who is.

    Do James Rodriguez has gone on a 2 year loan to Munich. Although I might be deluded, should we not be trying to tempt players of this calibur to Spurs? Fits Poch’ s template perfectly. Considering we have challenged for the title the last two seasons on the trot, surely that must have some kind of pull?!

    • digiyid July 11, 2017 at 5:11 pm

      This is exactly what i was pointing at with a comment on another of this blogs daily pages..RM needs space and release of funds to avoid any breach of FFP regulations. BM o the other hand despite needing another striker or forward without wanting to lose Costa couldnt spend £65 mil on James Rodriguez..Instead to make it a fitting deal for both clubs BM will pay £10 mil a season for 2 seasons and with a further £35 mil they can purchase Rodriguez. On the other hand RM now got rid of a guy who just couldnt produce and took a large chunk of RM wage bill they also opened a space now for Mbappe in their squad.

      English clubs and fans do not like loan deals but in Europe it works because all people are interested in is their club to achieve things with or without a loan player. They are just looking at it as another addition to make the squad better.

      Spurs could have done the same deal but i believe firstly it is against Levys principals to pay £10 mil a season loan payment plus the players £150k a week wages and secondly there is a recent unsuccesful case of Falcao to Man Utd and Chelsea on an identical fashion

  • UnkleTaff July 11, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    Kevin Wimmer is left-footed.

    Alfie Mawson is left-footed.

      The next step is to establish which one is cheaper and then we know who Levy will employ.

    Isn’t Dier Deli’s best mate at Spurs? Selling Dier could unsettle Deli also. You decide if that is a good or bad thing.

    On a different note I never want to sell anyone to ManUre again

    • Superspoz 🔪 July 11, 2017 at 2:54 pm

      It’s from a newspaper, don’t worry about it. Last week it was kane this week it’s Dier and next week it’ll be someone else.

    It was an odd situation the way Wimmer fell from grace. He looked on the mark when he got his chance and wasn’t involved in the collapse at the end of 15/16. Did something happen in pre-season 16/17? Never heard anything about a falling out with any of the coaching staff. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller

  • East Stand July 11, 2017 at 1:36 pm

    I also would have liked to have seen a little more rotation here and there but HH’s point that decent players will warn the bench for good pay is relevant.

    However in Wimmer’s case it could be a combination of being 24 and needing to establish himself to warrant more pay in a few years and a more illustrious career in general.

    Perhaps Jan was close to leaving at one point and Wimmer was seen as a long term replacement.

    The development of Dier and the rock solid Toby/Jan unit makes Wimmer ‘right player at the wrong time’ at Spurs.

    I see a loan our with a future fee attached possibly. He needs to play more…

  • Totspurs July 11, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    If Poch trusted him he’d of played him more obviously he’s not good enough! Can easily bring in a back up CB. Are need is for a pacey wide man and back up to Erik and Deli I see Anoutovic has put in a transfer request could do much worse he’s consistent and certainly knows his way to goal.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 11, 2017 at 1:34 pm

      • Toni Cockerel July 11, 2017 at 2:04 pm

      Hard for Wimmer to get past Verts and Toby to play more. He seemed a good player when Verts was injured.

  • MysteriousStranger July 11, 2017 at 1:26 pm

    A right sided CB doesn’t replace a left sided CB. Particularly if they aren’t as good.

    • Devonshirespur July 11, 2017 at 1:41 pm

      Poch is pretty rigid with his left footer on the left side and right footer on the right.

      Verts missed 9 league games last season but Wimmer was injured for some of those too.

      When he did play he looked pretty poor, way worse than the season before when he stepped in to great effect.

      Reminds me a bit of the Redknapp days when he played his fave XI into the ground and when he called upon the backups, they were rusty, demotivated and off the pace. Wimmer didnt look fit to me last season, and off the pace but that isnt really his fault if he’s not rotated in from time to time.

      I trust Poch, who seems to make a big thing about how players perform in training, and if he doesnt feel he can trust Wimmer then i’d trust his judgement.

      I’d guess we would be happy to keep him, but if he wants more match time and £20m is offered then thats the sort of deal i’d expect Levy & Poch to go for…a tidy profit without destablising the team

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 11, 2017 at 1:23 pm

    For a rotating team we didnt rotate very much. Maybe Wimmer wasnt fit but with all the demonizing of Levy and incessant praise and defence of Poch…you would think therewould be a little awareness of Pochs lack of balance in rotation players.
    I mean Im not into washing machine rotating. I dont the ideaif jystgetting players on a rota…but with some common sense. Wimmer was ripped off not by Levy but by Poch.
    He gave a great account of himself filling in for Jan and then surprisingly couldnt buy a game.
    NoCluedo. Hate that handle because the kid doesnt deserve that tag. Given 5 minutes here and there he showed more joie devivre ;burst of energy and ball control skill than most have done in such a pigeon amount of time.
    Poch is like an obssesive holding on to dear life with anything that worked 5 minutes ago.
    We need better and more clever use of all our players.
    And a couple of better players a nd we will win the league

  • Camus July 11, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    I get the feeling some sh*t might kick off late in the window with Walker going and possibly Dier too. Levy is a businessman. He bought Dier for £4mill – can he resist £60mill+ from Yanited if they are desperate to have him? I’d rather keep him because the message of selling to Yanited again would be so, so wrong, and we’d buy 2 or 3 dog-shite players with the cash. But what will Levy do? I don’t trust him enough to think he wouldn’t sell Dier this window and royally piss Poch off in the process.

    • Superspoz 🔪 July 11, 2017 at 1:30 pm

      We won’t be selling any players with short back and sides.

    • UnkleTaff July 11, 2017 at 1:32 pm

      If Pochettino doesn’t want to sell Dier (or anyone else for that matter) then Dier won’t be sold, no matter how much money is on the table.

      It really is that simple.

      • Harry Hotspur July 11, 2017 at 1:34 pm

        Like we didn’t sell Carrick, Modric, Bale, Berbatov and won’t sell Bonzo, eh?

          in the days we finished 45 points below scottish scumbags side..Now we are way above them in the league and £32 million is no longer good enough to buy our reserve players.
