Hotspur Way is a veritable hive of activity at the moment.

Cliff Jones, Alan Gilzean and Pat Jennings, and Ossie Ardiles were there with the utterly depressing sight of the now stroke ravaged image Jimmy Greaves ‘visiting’ Mauricio Pochettino and the coaching staff.

Or perhaps it doesn’t depress you to see THFC pay Jonesy, Gilzean, Jennings and Ossie paid enough to turn up whilst they are still able to attend without being wheeled in?

Jimmy Greaves, one of the greatest if not the greatest Spurs player of all time and only now on ENIC soil because of his wretched ill health.

Good grief.

    He haven’t got enough good players is the complaint. The academy can’t supply everything in the correct quantity at the apposite time.
    A box to box midfielder like Kovacic would be a great addition and a quality winger, to obviate the loss of Walker’s pace.

    Kovacic.I hope Levy is on that one

    The crowd are loving it.

    8.15 pm: Four hours and 28 minutes. This match will never end. I’ve accepted that now. We’re all going to be trapped in eternity watching this go on

    According to the GOAT on Spurs Comm. the word from the club is that no bid has been made for Siggy . He/they are normally on the ball .

    • AccringtonSpurs July 10, 2017 at 8:19 pm

      Someone else who knows a journalist seems to think we’re in for Man Utd’s James WIlson (U23s).

      • gloster1861 July 10, 2017 at 8:21 pm

        I wouldn’t say no. He’s got talent and will get nowhere at the Manc Galacticos. Players under 30 million quid need not bother to apply…

        • David Dillenberg July 10, 2017 at 8:40 pm

          Siggy not for me.

    • Harry Hotspur July 10, 2017 at 8:30 pm

  • UnkleTaff July 10, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    Apologies if this has been posted before, but here’s a report detailing what Juan Foyth has to say about the rumours regarding his transfer:

    http://www.football.london/tottenham-hotspur-fc/transfer-news/what-tottenham-target-juan-foyth-13309829

    It’s pretty clear (to me, at least) that we’re not top of his wish list.

    • Freund or Foe July 10, 2017 at 7:25 pm

      He’s not top of mine, so that works out well.

      • 💋 July 10, 2017 at 7:37 pm

        He’s at the top of my list of players … I’ve never heard of.

        • Still Nil Nil July 10, 2017 at 7:41 pm

          As you’ve now heard of him he’s not on that list Shirley?
          No one will be.
          Reason being if you haven’t heard of them how can you put them on a list?
          And if you’ve heard of them they’d be on your list of players you’ve now heard of?

    According to The Pompey News Luke McGee is available for a permanent transfer.

    I’d be very surprised indeed (and not a little disappointed) if this turns out to be the case.

  • melcyid July 10, 2017 at 7:03 pm

    6 months from moving in I could see they would know it wouldnt be ready but they already have started the internal fit and they are still building the structure. Now if they say they have complications for the sliding pitch that is another story as that is not a usual requisite for a stadium and could easily have been underestimated timewise.

    • melcyid July 10, 2017 at 7:12 pm

  • Matt July 10, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Disappointing ITK. The stadium will definitely not be ready for next year.

    • TomTom61 July 10, 2017 at 6:22 pm

        I’d love to think it was b@llox but I think we’ll be finding out some time that we’re all going to be at Wembley for another year after this. May be old news to some people but I’d not heard it stated so definitively before. On a happier note, at least we haven’t paid £90m for Lukaku.

        • caveman July 10, 2017 at 6:48 pm

          Where is it coming from. The progress shown on the ‘Edward’ time lapse video’s is quite amazing. If they keep moving at current speed there’s no way that it will take two years to finish. They look right on schedule.

          • Matt July 10, 2017 at 6:51 pm

            Exactly what I said Cavey! Apparently it’s the inside fit that’s the issue.

            • Sexy Beast July 10, 2017 at 6:59 pm

              wouldn’t surprise me, the fit out will be a massive job and they need the roof to be watertight to really get moving on the internal fit out.

            • caveman July 10, 2017 at 7:10 pm

              If Mace underestimated to the tune of 12 months it’ll probably cost their insurance a packed. More duffle bag lining.

        • Harry Hotspur July 10, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    Interesting piece on the last blog about debt in football.

    Obviously the element that struck me most was the author alluding to a breakaway league that would entice the likes of Amazon, Google and Facebook to get involved. Same week that the story breaks about Zuckerberg’s interest in buying Spurs.

  • TomTom61 July 10, 2017 at 3:23 pm

    Does the return of Lamela count as more or less like having a new player?

    • gloster1861 July 10, 2017 at 2:36 pm

      An extra player. Will he be badly affected by his injury? I can’t see he will be as physically able. I’m also worried about Rose getting back to his old form.

      • mattspurs July 10, 2017 at 2:53 pm

        Rose has been injured more than Lamela over the last 4 seasons – he’ll come back fine.
        In a funny way his injury might have been a good thing as if he’d carried on as he was he’d have been our best player last season and probably off to Barca or Real. It also gave Davies a chance to show what a good player he is.

    • modricbigtoe July 10, 2017 at 2:37 pm

          • MysteriousStranger July 10, 2017 at 3:42 pm

            Adama Traoré.

            • Willie! July 10, 2017 at 6:24 pm

              He looked like a speed merchant with no close control. I believe we had one of those in N’Jie.
              Traore couldn’t make the starting XI at Boro, everytime I saw them he was coming off the bench late as impact sub.

        • mattspurs July 10, 2017 at 2:49 pm

          I’d agree that a CM who can do a bit of Eriksen and perhaps Dembele covering is the player we need.

          Walker hasn’t left yet and still might not. If he does we’ll need cover for Trippier. (Unless KWP can be trusted/is good enough to play 15 games?)

          Sissoko/Wimmer/Janssen could be improved upon – or just improve.

          Basically people are getting in a panic about signing one player.
