A cyclical person would brand The Sun opportunistic for running with this one.

Nabil Fekir was supposedly on his way to Liverpool, however their rumoured £53million pound bid wasn’t enough to get a deal for the Olympique Lionnais attacker over the line.

Olympique Lionnais’ magic number is thought to be £66million.

This is another right sided midfielder – perhaps the third this week – and …I’m losing the will to live as I cover this.

Look, he’s 24 and has won absolutely nothing of note in his entire career (which he’s spent with OL) since he began his profession career in the 2011/12 season.

Runner up this, runner up that.

Indeed, Nabil sprang to to life last term and scored 18 league goals from 30 appearances, but I am honestly struggling to guess an accurate valuation on this lad – even in the his inflated climate.

Fekir only scored 13 Ligue 1 goals in the his previous 3 seasons combined! 

I’ll be honest.

Also this whole French thing isn’t working for me.

All the Whataboutery™ in the world counts for nothing when for every Thierry Henry or David Ginola you get 1000’s of Clinton Cards.

Fekir is linked to us because some of our support might be stupid enough to click on a link that suggests it’s a viable target.

I’ll apologise for wasting your time.

Will ENIC?

    Brazil showing that hotspur way makes a team better

    Why have Brazil just stopped playing?

    • Gloster1861 June 17, 2018 at 7:45 pm

      I reckon they think they can hit them on the break and are conserving energy.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 17, 2018 at 7:50 pm

        Thought they were going to turn it on..

    Neymar’s still in this

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 17, 2018 at 7:13 pm

      His hairs still in this. Looks like a lemon drizzle cake on his head.

      • Harry Hotspur June 17, 2018 at 7:16 pm

        Don’t, I’m at that delicate point in beer drinking whereby I’m quite happy, yet could be enticed into fucking it off and emptying the kitchen.

      No! lol

      • Flynnbob June 17, 2018 at 7:29 pm

        Paulinho will be the first. Que Timmy and his gillet on Brazilian tv explaining how Brazil owe everything to him.

    I so want to get my Spurs mad cousin a replica shirt with ‘Fekir’ for Xmas.

    There’s a good Dad’s Army episode that plays on that gag

  • SeattleSpursGuy June 17, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    Paulinho starting. Boggles the mind that he could a World Cup winner

    • baz June 17, 2018 at 7:04 pm

      Sherwood was the making of him

    Paulinho isn’t much of an actor, but his impression of a footballer has got him to the biggest stage .

  • Ozspurs June 17, 2018 at 6:27 pm

    Can someone explain as to why Spurs want Toby gone? I just don’t get it??

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 17, 2018 at 7:38 pm

      Money

    • Cabspur June 17, 2018 at 7:38 pm

      Toby wants a big fat pay check and Levy isnt willing,it seems Man u arent either at the moment.

    • Gloster1861 June 17, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      Soylent Green.
      .
      .
      .
      .
      .
      .
      According to Levy, due to lack of resources, everyone must be recycled.

  • Vikingyid June 17, 2018 at 6:20 pm

    Gotta admit, the guys pirouettes and step overs on YouTube did nothing to convince me. Fuckim let the scousers have him. For that money we should be looking at Monkey boy

    • Harry Hotspur June 17, 2018 at 6:22 pm

      Easy on the NikNaks there, pilgrim

  • Aussie in Switzerland June 17, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    Maybe Madrid would like Toby for part of Bale

    • Aussie in Switzerland June 17, 2018 at 6:35 pm

      Or Son

  • RecaroN17 June 17, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    If you had the purse strings who would you get in Harry?

    • Harry Hotspur June 17, 2018 at 6:15 pm

      I’m drawing up a list.

      Everyone will hate it – although that’s not my strategy.

      My strategy is for us win.

      • Aussie in Switzerland June 17, 2018 at 6:15 pm

        Is Martial on it?

        • Harry Hotspur June 17, 2018 at 6:22 pm

          No.

          Nor are any uncredited cast members of the original motion picture ‘Chitty Chitty Bang’, Anjem Choudary or my dog’s vet whose name is Vlad.

      • Flynnbob June 17, 2018 at 7:03 pm

        Will be interesting to see your list.i can’t name one player that you were actually wanting to come to us(ever) lol

        • Yippers June 17, 2018 at 7:55 pm

          He was on a horn about aurier joining! He’s the worst player we ever bought

      • QQ June 17, 2018 at 7:25 pm

        Don’r forget to put for each one on the list why it is “brave” (transfer fee
        size, wage costs, their injury record, could weaken the squad / strengthen a
        rival etc) .

        • Harry Hotspur June 17, 2018 at 7:34 pm

          I’m focusing mainly on haircuts and overbites

          • Paddio June 17, 2018 at 7:53 pm

            Hope it has a if levy did another VDV style buy in it (whilst it will be a few mill more)

          • QQ June 17, 2018 at 8:02 pm

            You may also want to consider tattoos and fluo white teeth.

  • Aussie in Switzerland June 17, 2018 at 6:12 pm

    Is it still ok to hate the French? Fuck them and their inability to serve a decent breakfast
