Did Rose Ask To Leave Back In May?

Did Rose Ask To Leave Back In May?

A respected itk on the excellent COYS forum has disclosed that Danny Rose was interested in walking away from Spurs a few months ago.

Specifically…

How do we process this?

If it is to be believed, then it certainly makes sense of the car crash interview Rose had with the BBC. He and Kyle Walker – as thick as thieves – talking about the value of defenders…

Then we discover that Bonzo was captivated by the prospect of doubling his salary, once his missus had given him sufficient amounts of GBH of the earhole.

Additionally, we had grumbly itk from the Goat on Spurs Community that confirmed my malicious thoughts, that footballers do not share ‘club visions’ and whilst Daniel may believe that the world revolves around his New Destination™, the dressing room does not.

Money and status are not options are Spurs under Levy. As boring as it is to suffer reading again, it’s not as boring as having to make the point for the umpteenth time. Trust me.

Kyle Walker bailed and his first interview as a Manchester City player heavily referenced winning stuff.

Levy only has a few days until the meter starts running on the Premier League, and he only has a few weeks until his transfer privileges are removed because the window will closes on him.

    Levys game is a dangerous one. What he thinks he built up can come down crashing in a few months..you can not rely on your players to perform 200 % every season. That starting 11 didn’t have MANY passengers last season which doesn’t mean all of the last years great performers can also have a bad season or G-D forbid a long term injury..You need to have proper back ups ..end of..next year this time we might be talking about how did we end up 8th following a season as the runners up

  • Lilywhite without the II August 9, 2017 at 10:43 pm

    Regardless of that article:
    “But it depends where the individual is in the stage of his career. He might feel he has done enough at Tottenham and might fancy a change or might feel Tottenham is the nearly club that nearly wins the league and might choose to move on.”
    Rose probably wants out but Poch wants him and certainly needs him. It’s not as though we could get a replacement of his quality without it costing a fortune which will know won’t happen….I’ll give this one to Poch, he must feel let down and the situation could get tricky..

    Coutinho has won medals in his career, but otherwise it’s definitely him.

    • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 10:40 pm

      He won a couple of cup medals at Inter but didn’t play in any of the finals – more than I’ve ever won though.

  • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:28 pm

    So, if it’s anything, it’s likely a story about Coutinho and Liverpool. Yawn.

    H, got a potential scoop for you.
    The Sun are running with a story tomorrow and a rumour amongst Spurs fans on Twitter is gathering pace that it’s Danny Rose… 😳

        Doesn’t look too good, mate.

        • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:30 pm

          If you support Liverpool.

          • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:37 pm

            Or City.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 August 9, 2017 at 10:13 pm

      Looks like a re-hash of his previous mutterings.

      • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:14 pm

        This has been suggested, yeah. The TalkSport interview.

      • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:14 pm

        You’ve already read his mutterings! What time zone are you in Nut?

        • 61SpursNut🌰 August 9, 2017 at 10:15 pm

          Read down the page.

          • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:17 pm

            Dammit! Why didn’t I think of that?

            • 61SpursNut🌰 August 9, 2017 at 10:18 pm

              Too busy engraving your brick.

              I said brick.

              • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:22 pm

                It’s a tedious job, but I shall persevere.

      • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:22 pm

        This is bad.

        This is so bad.

        • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:31 pm

          So, so bad; terrible.

          • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:40 pm

            Very bad. Really.

            On a less Trump note, I’m struggling to see how Rose with just 12 England caps is q household name.

            But it’s the Sun. If I was behind this on the Sun, I’d do the same.

            Not MUFC
            Not CFC
            Not AFC

            So must be LFC or us.

            • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:43 pm

              Yep. The only ‘household’ name we have though, is Kane, surely?

              • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:44 pm

                International player. Must be at least mid-20s as suggests time is running out a bit. Who could it be? I’m thinking Jordan Henderson.

                • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:58 pm

                  Household name is clearly being used with a degree of autistic license here

              • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:55 pm

                I’d go David Pleat ahead of Kane 💫

    • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      On Twitter, you say…
      In The Sun, you say…
      Danny Rose, you say…

      • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:18 pm

        All will be revealed tomorrow.

        • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:23 pm

          Not all, I suspect, but enough to keep your Twitter buddies in wet knickers for a few hours.

          • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:25 pm

            They wouldn’t have this problem if they used Tampax.

            • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      If it’s in The Sun and being discussed on Twitter, how is it a scoop?

            Tancredi Palmeri.

            • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:24 pm

              Is that an Italian cured ham?

              • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:25 pm

                A very tasteless, salty one, yes.

            • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:26 pm

              …or that. Is it Latin for Twitter Bollix?

    • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:17 pm

      Wowser – but the guy says “I would love to see more signings… I want world-class players to come through the front door to make you fight for your place.”

      Or am I being picky?!

      • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:19 pm

        Also says he’s a “house-hold name”.

        • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:20 pm

          Definitely Bellerin.

          • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:20 pm

        • 61SpursNut🌰 August 9, 2017 at 10:20 pm

          Berkley?

      • Camus August 9, 2017 at 10:19 pm

        It’s Bellerin, isn’t it?

        • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:28 pm

          The household name ‘Bellerin’?

      • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:19 pm

        You’re beyond picky..

        • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 10:25 pm

          • Freund or Foe August 9, 2017 at 10:28 pm

    What does Rose want ? I’ll pay ‘im. He’s too good to let go .

  • Camus August 9, 2017 at 9:49 pm

    It was weird how we were linked to Cancelo and then within 24 hours or so he’s joining the Chavs. It seems a favoured journalistic path to tread, like a gentle stroll through the bluebells.

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

      Whether true or not, it’s more the point that clubs like the chavs go in and get the deal done without too much fuss. If we are interested (no idea), what is stopping us from being decisive in the transfer market and getting deals done without the usual brinkmanship?

      • Camus August 9, 2017 at 9:56 pm

        I completely agree.

              A Mrs Brucie Bonus for Sly John 😎

  • Camus August 9, 2017 at 9:31 pm

    Rose is not the best left-back there’s ever been. He’s much like Walker actually – great engine, loads of pace, rarely an end product. He might be a better tackler. But Poch gets the best out of him and, well, we can’t sell him now when we’ve bought no one. That, my friends, would be silly. Very silly indeed.

    • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 9:37 pm

      So why can’t Levy do something about it? If unrest with the players is true, not showing ambition will only have players wondering if the club/Levy shares their ambition.
      I’m trying to remain positive, but it’s proving a tad difficult at the moment.

      • Camus August 9, 2017 at 9:51 pm

        I doubt he gets it. They’re just assets to him. Poch is the cheerleader and clucking Mother Hen.

      • RumpleSPURTSkin 💋 August 9, 2017 at 10:02 pm

        Apart from Walker, where’s the unrest you speak of?

        • Caspurs♿️ August 9, 2017 at 10:24 pm

  • OrganicPaper August 9, 2017 at 9:22 pm

    If I was as under paid as Mr Rose (comparatively speaking, naturally) I’d be shuffling on to ManUre too. The boy is class but not quite world class.
    Just feking pay him or don’t. Of you don’t then make a feking plan to sign a replacement. Neither has been done… madness

    It’s quite remarkable that we expect our best players to challenge for trophies and earn what a mid table club would pay their players.If rose wants out that means there is discontent at the club.I know that players sign contracts but they have agents who have their own interests at heart,so they push for transfers to clubs that pay the going rate and have a chance of silverware.
    We have little chance of silverware cause our squad is not capable of rotation with top players from the bench.We also pay them half or less than other top clubs pay, so there is only one outcome.The players aren’t going to hang around for the stadium, they don’t care so we could end up screwed end of the season.

    • Freund or Foe August 9, 2017 at 8:46 pm

      We don’t pay mid table wages.

        West ham mid table club, pay at least equal and more than us (i know they have free stadium) chicorito is on 140,000 week
        Antonio 100,000 a week ,,a good player but what is ,rose,ericksen,etc earn?

        • Freund or Foe August 9, 2017 at 8:55 pm

          Nope. They may pay one or two players more, but overall we have the 6th biggest wage bill at 100mil, Spammers in 8th at 85mil.

          • Spurtstacus August 9, 2017 at 8:57 pm

        • Devonshirespur August 9, 2017 at 9:00 pm

          Well run clubs typically spend 50-55% of their total revenue on wages. We’re in that bracket

          • Freund or Foe August 9, 2017 at 9:03 pm

            Use the force, Dev.

            Did we make the quarterfinals of the Revenue Over Wages cup?

      • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:55 pm

        We pay the 6th highest wages, we have the 6th highest turnover

        Our turnover is closer to Sunderland’s than Man United’s, Closer to Palace’s than Chelsea’s.

        • Freund or Foe August 9, 2017 at 8:58 pm

          And Arsenal’s wage bill, the closest to ours out of the other top 6 clubs, is 92% of our revenue.
          I don’t get sick of telling you chaps this when I hear the “pay proper wages” nonsense.

          • McG ⚽⚽ August 9, 2017 at 9:40 pm

            That would still leave us 8% for transfers, don’t see the problem.

            • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 9:50 pm

            ….Joe Lewis should pay it out of his personal fortune. Why else did this ruthless self made billionaire investor buy Spurs? So he could go against everything he is and spunk money on a little project of course.

    • Still Nil Nil August 9, 2017 at 8:39 pm

      I don’t think you needed to put the last bit in ‘who will become a regular this season’

      • Hartley™ August 9, 2017 at 8:40 pm

        I don’t think me needed to put any of it in.

        ok, how many people are you all willing to guess we will sign before the close of the window?

    • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:41 pm

      Depends if players get injured really – I don’t think the plan is to replace any first teamers. If you ranked our players we are probably looking at 14/15/16 – replacements who can be relied on rather than players who can’t (Sissoko and Wimmer)

  • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 8:34 pm

      who the f…

  • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:26 pm

    The loss of Rose would be terrible, to lose Walker and Rose would be a catastrophe – this is probably why they said no.

    We’ve signed none but only lost one – one who was arguably on his way out of our starting 11. Not losing anyone key is the most important thing in a transfer window – the fallout of Bale, Berba and Modric leaving was terrible.

    But for all the hype of our rival’s spending what have they actually done?

    City have lost 4 fullbacks, 2 wingers, a keeper, a central midfielder and a centre forward – (These guys made over 180 appearances between them last season) granted they’ve signed £200m in replacements but their first team squad has actually become smaller. On paper they look great but they will need time to gel (hopefully)

    Chelsea have lost a keeper, 2 centre backs, a DM and probably their top scoring CF. They’ve bought players to replace them but nothing else (Conte is understandably desperate to sign more) – again, important players will need time to adapt and gel so are they actually stronger?

    United have lost Ibra and signed Lukaku. They’ve lost Rooney which is probably a good thing and gained a decent prospect at CB and a solid DM. They are a bit stronger.

    Liverpool have improved their squad depth a solid reserve LB, a quality AM and CF prospect but still need better CB’s and may lose Coutinho.

    Everton have sold their top scorer ( a proven PL scorer) signed a lot of potential and a fat past it scouser.

    Arsenal have actually probably had the best window of the top 6 if they can keep hold of Sanchez.

    • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 8:31 pm

      We haven’t signed a n y o n e.

      • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:38 pm

        R e a l l y ?

        I hadn’t noticed!
        Look – if we can sign a RB and replace Sissoko (with Barkley) and Wimmer then we’ll be fine. Another AM would be lovely and that would make us contenders again for the league.

        Obviously this relies on Janssen and your beloved NKD improving and contributing.

      • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:42 pm

        We’ve lost one player – everybody else has lost more.

    • richspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:33 pm

      Its a different ball game now, money talks. Quality also costs, a lot more. There is no loyalty in football, thats a dying breed. As the season wears on, guess who flags first. Cheeseboard or paycheck.

  • Digiyid August 9, 2017 at 8:25 pm

    This has been blown out of proportion altogether..Roses agent tells him that full backs will be in demand in the next season or two basically trying to turn his head for a big pay day for himself and our Danny boy goes and tells this to everyone else including the BBC..just like himself..

    • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 8:29 pm

      It would beggar belief that Bonzo didn’t tell Rose he was leaving and how much he was earning.

      This didn’t come from an agent, this came from two close pals talking to each other. When that Rose interview came out who the flip could’ve predicted that Walker would be sold for £50million?

      No agent at work here. This is a very straightforward business we’ve all witnessed.

  • Erik August 9, 2017 at 8:23 pm

    • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:33 pm

      5 years ago a blog was written on here about giving another left back (BAE) the pay rise he ‘deserved’ – that didn’t exactly go well did it?

      • Erik August 9, 2017 at 8:42 pm

        You don’t believe, arguably, the best left back in the Premier League deserves a pay rise?
        Moreover, comparing him with BAE FFS.

        • mattspurs August 9, 2017 at 10:08 pm

          BAE was our best defender at one point and possibly the best left back in the league, then he got a pay rise and stopped caring. I’m sure if you could trawl the archives on here you’d see a blog dedicated to moaning about Levy not getting BAE a new number contract and the BTL comments urging urgent action.

          Rose signed a new contract 11 months ago and has been injured for 7 of them!

  • Paddy Spurs August 9, 2017 at 8:23 pm

    I’d understand not signing anyone if we upped the contracts of those deserved of them but to not sign anyone and expect players to stay on wages lower than inferior players at other clubs is totally naive

  • melcyid August 9, 2017 at 8:20 pm

  • richspurs August 9, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Players at the very top of their game want to win trophies, achieve fame and fortune, not balance the books. The game is about glamour and glory, what sets out the very best from the just good. We sre going to witness the dismantling of a very good team, potentially excellent, numerically physically and mentally or psychologically, if Levy does not oull his finger out and do something. Bring in reinforcement, pay better wages and sign more quality.

    • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 8:20 pm

      You’d think it was a complicated business, but well run clubs do this every season. This is the first time our Supremo has been faced with genuinely challenging and he appears not to know what to do…

      He’s got a few weeks and about £100million in used notes.

      Oh, and the scouting excellence that is Steve Hitchen standing tall by his side.

  • Lilywhite August 9, 2017 at 7:58 pm

    Levy probably marvels at our excellent starting 11, many of whom were purchase far below their current value, and licks his chops thinking about how once they were signed on to contract extensions, the club could just coast – able to bring in few, if any, signings, winning nothing w many players and supporters frustrated but helpless, all the while, raking in increased revenues.

  • Harry Hotspur August 9, 2017 at 7:52 pm

    Si vis pacem, para bellum “If you want peace, prepare for war”.

    Levy finished second in the league and witnessed so many positives, his response was not to prepare for war.

    He thought himself ‘Oooh, isn’t that nice’ and went about his business, working out the margins on a mid-priced cheese board.

  • Horndog August 9, 2017 at 7:41 pm

    If Daniel Levy is naive enough to believe that the footballing side of his mini empire cannot come unglued, he might be sadly mistaken.
