Heh, not a ball has been kicked and you poor schmucks are already being vigorously milked.

Really, £72 for a friendly?

And that seventy two of your English pounds which doesn’t include all the usual add-ons; much like any other Levy deal, eh?

Wembley, like everything else the poisoned diminutive one does, was motivated by commercial benefits and without any bearing upon the footballing side of the business.

It’s looking like this game on August 5th will be full of what the milking parlours refer to as ‘the ones with the sorest teats’.

    53,800 on the waiting list for a season ticket and I got offered one last night by email, at a guess I would say the take up is less than 25/30% .
    Good luck selling the Juventus seats Mr Levy 👍

    Meyer, check him out Mel, for 20 mil we’ll be mad not to. Can run with the ball, good strength & balance, likes a lay off too…

    • Caspurs♿️ July 5, 2017 at 1:25 am

      likes a lay off?
      So he’s injury prone?

      • melcyid July 5, 2017 at 1:29 am

        lay off over here means lay down anytime of day with the air condition at full blast and just sleep or doss around

        • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 7:20 am

          He’d love the accommodation at Hotspur Way then.

      20 mill should do it.Already a Spurs type player from atletico.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 July 5, 2017 at 12:07 am

        I think if we sell Dier he might work out
        Also Atletico plays similar to our style

        • melcyid July 5, 2017 at 12:09 am

          true a step up with Poch at the helm ,buy him anyway wether Dier goes or stays ,great cover and a game changer

          • melcyid July 5, 2017 at 12:22 am

            gulp just read they have upped his buyout clause from 71 mill and got him to sign a 5 yr contract.

    Nice to see my old pal Jean Claude Junkers losing his rag with the European Parliament today. Apparently 30 out of 761 MEPs bothered to turn up to hear him address them. Lazy bar stewards live the life of Riley and don’t bother turning up until the day is half over. 😂😂

  • Totspurs July 4, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    Suso getting a new contract at AC Milan probably used us to get it. Why would we play £26 mil for Adrian Silva just don’t see this whatsoever too old too much money 💰

    • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 11:01 pm

      Pressure on the Barkley negotiations I suspect.

      • Camus July 4, 2017 at 11:05 pm

        Ah the old “Well, we don’t want your player anyway…” trick, followed by Everton pleading in desperation “Oh no, please take him from us…” ?

        • Caspurs♿️ July 4, 2017 at 11:06 pm

          This Barkley fellow sounds a bit quare to me….

              Yay!

        • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 11:06 pm

          However, I would have thought Siggy was more of a genuine alternative to Barkley. So Silva probably is pance.

    • Caspurs♿️ July 4, 2017 at 11:04 pm

      What exactly is too much money these days?

      • Camus July 4, 2017 at 11:06 pm

        Indeed. It’s probably a fair price. The old £15million fee of a couple of years ago.

        • Caspurs♿️ July 4, 2017 at 11:09 pm

          Lukapoo for £80m! Insane, what’s Kane worth then?
          It’s all gone pete tong I tell ya.

      • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 11:08 pm

        Any price quoted to Daniel Levy.

  • Camus July 4, 2017 at 10:57 pm

    Marseille have signed Clinton N’Jie for an alleged £6million. If true, we lost £5million there on transfer fee alone, let alone wages and the fact that he never played. 🙄

    • Camus July 4, 2017 at 10:59 pm

      Actually, this is unconfirmed as yet. Could just be tittle-tattle. Apologies.

    • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 11:00 pm

      We lost plenty on Ade just getting rid of the vagrant.

  • Camus July 4, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    United have bid 45million Euros for Perisic (who is 28) and Inter have rejected it. I think we’ll be having a pretty quiet window, chaps…

  • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Journal Noticias, a supposedly reliable news outlet in Portugal, is pushing the Adrien Silva transfer story this evening.

    His previous link to playing with Eric Dier is mentioned.

    • Camus July 4, 2017 at 10:54 pm

      I call bullsh*t, but we’ll see.

      • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 10:56 pm

        I can’t read Portuguese so can’t relate the original source.

      • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 10:58 pm

        Possibly Silva, Barkley and Siggy are all bouncing around as alternatives. Trying to convince Everton to drop their asking price. You know how these things go.

        • Camus July 4, 2017 at 11:00 pm

          A long wait and then the 4th choice option (after those 3) will come in. I’m relaxed though. Nothing I can do about it.

          • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 11:02 pm

            Sissoko I heard. If we can persuade Spurs to sell him to us.

            Wait, I’m getting confused…

  • Camus July 4, 2017 at 10:39 pm

    When I asked recently “Who is the new stadium for?”, this is the kinda malarkey I was hinting at. Wembley was not secured for next season with me in mind (I’m not being milked for £72 for any game, thanks Daniel) and the new stadium is not being built with me in mind either (another ‘opportunity’ to be milked for around £72…)

    I remain unconvinced that ‘the grand plan’ is that in around 5 or so years time, when the stadium has been paid off, we will finally start to focus more on the football team than the brand.

    • gloster1861 July 4, 2017 at 10:44 pm

      Just like Haringey is being gentrified, Spurs will inevitably aim to sell prawn sandwiches to those not invited to the Cheese Room.

      If I save hard from now, I may be able to watch Spurs versus Yeovil in some cup game in 18 months time.

  • Sexy Beast July 4, 2017 at 10:14 pm

      Interesting article. It really shows the gulf between what fans are willing to do & what they are willing to pay. I was shocked when in london i couldnt sit in a pub to watch the games of the day. Kinda like the nfl black out of the sixties/seventies. Paying 5+ billion may give you the right to show a game, but if you dont make it affordable, dont be surprised if people find another way. Nbc included

        • 61SpursNut🌰 July 4, 2017 at 8:19 pm

          Some in the lower block 120 at £45-adult/£38 -u18 by the 18 yard line.
          Or £35/£25 behind the goal on the lower blocks

          Still way to much though
