If They Want £50M Where Does That Leave Levy?

If They Want £50M Where Does That Leave Levy?

Gladys tells me that Bournemouth want £50million for Josh King.

Are Bournemouth bad people (sound familiar)? No of course they aren’t, but what we have here is a really strong pointer as to where Levy is in the transfer market.

Is Kyle Walker worth north of £50million? Of course he is.

Right now. In this moment©  Even your grumpy mother in law, the one with the club foot and the bizarre overbite is worth big money.

Flat Earthers applaud charging and despise paying.

Flat Earthers applaud charging but despise paying.

    Nick Robinson on Radio Four’s Today programme, first of all interviews Alistair Darling, and tries to put words in his mouth that a new party could be formed from Labour Blairites and Lib Dems and soft Tories. Darling tells him where to go.

    An hour later, Robinson interviews Paddy Ashdown. Again, he suggests the Lib Dems could try and form a new centre party with Labour renegades and Tories. Ashdown tells him where to go.

    What the fuck does the BBC think its doing, with cnuts like Robinson trying to make the news, not report it?

    This morning’s ITK update on SC:

    JJ in response to an article reporting on stories of our ‘interest’ in Max Meyer, Javier Hernandez, Adrien Silva and Josh King.

    The original JJetset‏@jetsetyid 22m minutes ago
    I think someone is rehashing from years gone, as none is remotely true except for maybe JK but we haven’t bid on him he is just of interest

    So Josh King is ‘just of interest’. The rest are made up/re-hashed stories.

    • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 8:54 am

      Does this mean we are doing NOTHING?

      As I suspect.

      • AccringtonSpurs July 4, 2017 at 9:19 am

        Dunno – this blog suggests there’s more than just interest in King, as Bournemouth want £50m.

        It could be that we’ll be in for a RB and Barkley…

        Or that all our targets are absolutely top secret.

        • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 9:29 am

        Brazil seems to be quite happy to perpetuate an image of being a piss head. All the adverts for his show refer to him being on the lash again. It’s a living I spose.

  • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 7:24 am

    For the hard of thinking…

    Forget the window closing at the end of August. The season actually kicks off halfway through next month. If you buy someone after that date it’s the equivalent of don’t the weekly shop, then rushing out because you forgot the milk, the bread, or the toilet rolls. It’s planning gone wrong.

    If you are serious about improving the squad you get your business done in the next ten days. That allows the new player to have a decent preseason, play in some friendlies, get ready mentally.

    If you leave it beyond July you are basically screwing up.

    • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 7:24 am

      We probably consider ourselves a bigger club than Everton, but in fact they won the title 30 years ago which is a damn sight more than we’ve managed.

  • ethan July 4, 2017 at 3:25 am

    Who cares about Josh King. Bring in Chicharito. Far superior player. Of course I would prefer Lacazette but it’s gutless Levy we’re talking about.

    • Sexy Beast July 4, 2017 at 7:17 am

      Lacazette is no great shakes, 26 years old without a single French senior cap, you have to wonder why that is.
      We know that the French have an abundance of talent but if he was that good he’d have been bought a few years ago…….
      Just because teams around us are spending shed loads of cash 💰 doesn’t mean we are going backwards, remember the most important thing is we are the youngest team in the league and therefore we should keep improving (Wembley is the only unknown bit iof the equation) keep calm and also remember that we have the best manager on the planet 🌎

    would love to have been ln Levys shoes at the end of season.Given the head of steam and impetus for the run in that the team was on a roll.I would have told the builders and demo firm you do one and come back when we are ready. Played at the lane for 1 more year and give it a go from the off while all the others are embedding their signings.GLORY GLORY HALLELUJAH AND THE SPURS GO MARCHING ON. To DARE IS TO DO is not what Levy has done.

    • AntSpurs July 3, 2017 at 11:48 pm

      Evening Mel. We’re in it now anyways. I mean we have the team. Lane or no Lane we would have had to move. The alternative would be to move as ‘champions’ . I’d rather it this way.

              I hope so but he has made it harder now

              • AntSpurs July 4, 2017 at 12:18 am

                I expect we’ve moved quicker than he anticipated. But hey keeping what we’ve got is fantastic. I want to see us winning things consistently which is the road were on.

Macron intends to rule by Presidential decree, he also wishes to consolidate the current emergency powers into standard law so that they are permanent not temporary. We have a new dictator on the rise, I said a few weeks ago that the French have stumbled into electing a devious demagogue as their leader, and i reckon I will be proven right.

    I know he came on to the scene last season, but I think Harry winks will be a diamond much like Harry Kane has proved to be for many years to come.
    He will be the play maker Spurs are missing in the next year or two.
    He’s no Townsend or Livermore, he’s got more about him, has class that I think poch will extract and isn’t a big headed little fucka.
    He’ll also be like Kane in that he’ll not want to go of his own accord, you’d have to drag him out of the lane kicking and screaming.
    Mark my words, the lad is a future legend in the making.
    Players like Alli will come and go, players like Kane and winks are the future of Spurs.

    If I’m wrong, McG will eat his hat.

    Me? I will negotiate. 50m is where they start at. They can only come south. I think the lad will add a cutting edge up front. Gives us options bringing im or Arry on late on when we need to.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 3, 2017 at 9:31 pm

      He’d be good for us but 20 tops I would’ve thought.

  • gloster1861 July 3, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Levy will need to wait until all the big spending clubs have done their business. That’ll be ManUre, Citeh, Cheatski, Arse, Dippers, Everton, Wet Spam, basically everyone.

    Then he’ll be able to scavange through the bins.

      We’ll get Barkley if no one else wants him. Then as the only bidder we might pay less than 30 million.

  • David Dillenberg July 3, 2017 at 8:59 pm

    Following his impressive performance against England how about Spurs making a move for Celtic’s Scottish international industrious Leigh Griffiths. If we are going to splash the dosh I would rather him than Josh King.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 3, 2017 at 9:01 pm

      Not bad shout. Good finisher. Great left Peggy. Wouldn’t be asking 50 mill neither. 48?

      • David Dillenberg July 3, 2017 at 9:04 pm

        £25M – £30M would probably clinch it for Griffiths.

        • gloster1861 July 3, 2017 at 9:05 pm

          One good game against a lukewarm England? Really?

          • David Dillenberg July 3, 2017 at 9:07 pm

            Glos not solely judging him on just one game but admittedly in a weak league on his consistent performances / goals tally for Celtic.

            • David Dillenberg July 3, 2017 at 9:08 pm

              He always looks busy attempting to make things happen.

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 3, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    • gloster1861 July 3, 2017 at 9:07 pm

  • Sexy Beast July 3, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Everton need a few new players to move forward and upwards, we on the other hand need to strengthen our squad depth, this is a massive difference in approach to this window for both clubs.
    Might i suggest a sense of perspective chaps?

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 3, 2017 at 8:43 pm

      I’d say this window is perhaps more key for us than Everton given what we got ahead.

      • mikespurs July 3, 2017 at 8:44 pm

        Agree

        • Sexy Beast July 3, 2017 at 8:50 pm

    Levy; “You understand right MP, no one in their right mind should pay 50m for someone who will be on the bench. And don’t forget the price of first class flights to the America have gone through the roof. By the way, any thoughts on you and the lads doing a 3 stop trip?”

    Poch; “Just put Bonzo’s price up, no? He has to be worth 70m, yes?” What am I supposed to say to the press?”

    Levy; “here have this..”

    Press Notes;
    “ Noooo….it’s difficult, yes. When clubs put prices on players that only a few teams in the world can afford it’s not the chairman’s fault, no. We have a fantastic new training ground and more than enough players we want to give the opportunity to play, no. We decided we didn’t want to unsettle the players and are very happy with the team…..”

    Poch;
    “This is similar to what you gave me last year. There has to be some money in the pot, no?”

    Levy;
    “Pot…what do you mean pot?. I sold the League Cup on Ebay to pay for those bloody free t-shirts on The Finale. There’s new flooring going in to match the cheese in the cheese room and the trophy cabinet is made of marble so just as bloody well its small. You know what you signed up to, go out and finish 5th, 4th at best, and SEMI not FINAL in the cups remember otherwise the people in them seats expect more…..”
