Tottenham’s Twitter account just did something peculiar – namely hit Retweet on an Equipe de France Tweet – then a few minutes later – delete it.

Here’s the original Tweet.

Dozens of fans that caught the now deleted social media action asked the Club why was this picture of Atletico Madrid’s Lucas Hernandez highlighted?

There’s been predictable silence from the club account.

Not all of the responses were favourable towards the suggestion that we were thinking of or had signed Hernandez.

Like most of his fellow countrymen in their opening opening game, Lucas didn’t shine.

The 22 year old has an otherwise excellent reputation and cemented his place in the Atletico’s back-line last season.

Lucas would be an obvious choice to replace Toby Alderweireld as the Marseille boy is an UEFA League and La Liga winner.

Hernandez’ attributes include the ability to turn on some impressive speed as the defender illustrated as such with this piece of sensational play in Aletico’s1-0 win over Deportivo.

Or are we all just reading too much into an intern’s fat finger moment?

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Spain def have the personnel to go far in this tournament, even win it!

    • Cabspur June 18, 2018 at 6:16 pm

      Best team for me so far ,they played some fine football the other day.

      • dilly June 18, 2018 at 6:17 pm

        True but why play only one up front in Costa?

        • SeattleSpursGuy June 18, 2018 at 6:19 pm

          Extra man to deal with Ronaldo. Didn’t work.

        • Cabspur June 18, 2018 at 6:35 pm

          Not many teams play two out and out strikers ,teams like Spain want to control the game so one more in midfield suits.

  • Cabspur June 18, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    England XI: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Trippier, Henderson, Lingard, Alli, Young; Sterling, Kane

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:57 pm

      He’s gone and done it….picked Sterling. Maguire and Stones pairing. Nightmare. I got score draw. I may do Tunisia to win too. I am aghast Sterling starts again. Southgate is a Muppet. Golden Muppet.

      • dilly June 18, 2018 at 6:07 pm

        Disagree when after his successful campaign for Citeh IMO pacy Sterling is in the side on merit!

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 6:11 pm

          He’s been abject for England….in every appearance. City make him look good. He’s still missed 4 or 5 open goals for them last season. Kane suffers big time when Sterling plays.

          • dilly June 18, 2018 at 6:12 pm

            Who would you replace Sterling with?

            • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 6:14 pm

              Rashford.

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 6:13 pm

            Worst of all, Rashford came in for him….got man of the match….scored a stonker and he’s STILL starting. Bonkers.

            • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 6:15 pm

              He got a knock buts he’s fit.

          Its an opinion on a player who’s done nothing for his country. You accuse ignorance and don’t elaborate. Nice work.

            Not gonna fill me in genius? Righto

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:51 pm

    3 nil flatters em. They won’t be winning the trophy. Martinez’s is just trying to crowbar all the big names in a line up. Mexico are the most impressive side I’ve seen so far.

    • SeattleSpursGuy June 18, 2018 at 5:53 pm

      Yup.

      • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 6:10 pm

        Unfor ya. Peru looked really impressive despite their loss. Span at least can score goal unlike the other top 6

  • SeattleSpursGuy June 18, 2018 at 5:50 pm

    Our former man-bun coming on.

  • SeattleSpursGuy June 18, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    Crap game but this is how a so called ‘big’ team should deal with a minnow. England, take note.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:29 pm

    Booooooooring

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 5:18 pm

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:17 pm

    They’re still in this

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 5:14 pm

    Belgium aren’t going far with backs like those.

    Piss

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 5:07 pm

      Skill my arse. I scored one like that – once! Pure hit and hope and it went in.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:10 pm

        Lucky scuff.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:04 pm

    Come on you Charlie whites!!

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 5:04 pm

      Absolutely! Belgium losing would set us up nicely.

    • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 5:06 pm

      It’s ” canal men” but come on indeed

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:54 pm

    Will the new stadium be equipped with those birds eye cameras on wires? I think they use them for the NFL?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:04 pm

      Probably. All the bells and whistles. No squad.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    So far we’ve had…..the Saudi’s roll over for the hosts, Uruguay and France actively avoiding scoring in the first half, Germany lacklustre and done by super Mexico, Brazil tearing the Swiss apart at will and scoring then just stop playing….and Belgium bollox v minnows Panama. Anything afoot? Nooooooo.

    • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 5:00 pm

      Don’t forget limp Argentina against Iceland. Big hitters haven t showed up yet

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:01 pm

        Ahh yes.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:02 pm

          And Messi missing a penalty deliberately. That or he’s an overhyped Pratt.

          • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 6:12 pm

            Bad penalty miss. But the players around him are crap. De Maria……..forgot he was in the game. Kun great goal. Messi is a playmaker without anyone to play too

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:48 pm

    We had a sending off yet? Or are they waiting for England?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:56 pm

      No reds. Miracle.

      • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:57 pm

        Straight red for Maguire. You heard it here first.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:59 pm

          I heard its Maguire and Stones CB’s. Disaster.

  • Aussie in Switzerland June 18, 2018 at 4:46 pm

    Belgium are playing as slow at the back as Spurs do…..

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:48 pm

      Its our back line pretty much so…..

      • Aussie in Switzerland June 18, 2018 at 4:49 pm

        Exactly

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:53 pm

          All they need is Sissoko.

          • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 5:03 pm

            On good news, I found out I bet one of my friend spurs supporter that shitsko wouldn’t score a goal all year. Completely forgot about it. I’m a 100 richer

            • Aussie in Switzerland June 18, 2018 at 5:08 pm

              You bad man, and you good man….

            • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:11 pm

              🙌

              • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 5:23 pm

                Can’t believe they took the bet. Lol

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:45 pm

    I got Panama 1st half/Panama 2nd half. Draw 1st half/Panama 2nd half and Draw outright. Come on boys!

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:46 pm

      If Panama had a speed merchant up front they might have caught Belgium out. They’re not as quick as I hoped.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:47 pm

        Maybe they got a bench weapon….

        • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:52 pm

          Alberto Quintero is their star player, but the winger got injured in the friendly and misses the WC.

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:54 pm

            I was gonna say didn’t their main attacker get crocked? There’s the answer.👍

            • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:57 pm

              Gareth Bale in a sombrero.

              • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 5:00 pm

                👒

          • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 5:05 pm

            Also their striker leading the line is 37……….would expect much speed

  • Aussie in Switzerland June 18, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    So if Toby scores a hatrick do we get an extra 50m to cover the cost of Bale

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:37 pm

    Another fix?

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:39 pm

      What have you got?? 😁

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:41 pm

      You’re ‘aving a larf. Belgium have been inept up front.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:35 pm

        I reckon they’re doing well. Bless em. Belgium have been cack though.

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:29 pm

    Jan or Toby will score today.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:28 pm

    Lawro just said Tobes is the best defender we got. Hear that Daniel?? Probably checking menu designs….

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:30 pm

      He didn’t hear, he has his cheese earplugs in.

          That joke doesnt land online.

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:36 pm

            Or offline….

  • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:16 pm

    Panama aren’t being negative; but neither do they appear to know how to play football. How do bad teams get to the World Cup?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:18 pm

      Theyre unconventional. I’m backing em.

      • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 4:21 pm

        Perhaps bad is the wrong description? Naive. And yet Belgium haven’t scored yet, they are less than the sum of their parts. Should do so much better.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:22 pm

          Bunch of individuals.

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 4:26 pm

            Its tough for Panama today but I can see them getting something v England. Hopefully they can today too.

    • Aussie in Switzerland June 18, 2018 at 4:40 pm

      I dunno, was going to ask the same thing of England

    • Mikespurs June 18, 2018 at 4:45 pm

      They have the usa fall over themselves in qualifying

  • Elevenstonedidiots June 18, 2018 at 3:55 pm

    22, great reputation, just broken into the Atletico team. Cannot see AM letting him go for the bag of coins Levy will be offering. I just dont think AM would entertain the likes of Spurs pilfering their talent.

  • Paddio June 18, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    If we could retweet a Pjanic tweet or would that be too brave

    • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 3:53 pm

      Retweeting is the new creative.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 3:12 pm

    Replacing Toby is mental full stop. Why Levy?? Why?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 18, 2018 at 3:12 pm

      Actually, I know why.

      • Gloster1861 June 18, 2018 at 3:52 pm

        We all know why. You trade in the car whilst it still has a decent value towards a newer one, before it’s just scrap value.
