David Ornstein from the BBC says that No’Cluedo is off to Monaco.

This is a loan deal.


For those vaguely interested in some details, that’s the princely sum of £20,000 a week off of the wage bill. The man who was once photographed wearing a Chelsea shirt managed to make 26 appearances and score one solitary goal.

Here we have a prime example of a Danny Darling Special.

A punt that was designed to escalate in value, opposed to a purchase to boost the the team on, to aid it winning trophies.

The way this club is run isn’t parody, but it is beneath contempt.

One can but wonder how many season ticket holders are refusing to even discuss Spurs with their friends and family these days.

Even for your average well heeled punter, there are always trade offs with wives and partners when it comes to these sort of ‘indulgences’.

A season ticket at Tottenham right now is like buying £1000 coat and having to sheepishly tell the missus, ‘I’ll grow into it, won’t I?’ every time you leave the house, looking like an extra from Honey I Shrank The Kids.

There have already been corporate refunds.

  • JimmyGrievance February 1, 2019 at 11:08 am

    Heard this morning Chelsea wanted £6million for the loan and he wanted £150,000 a week. The Caravan dwellers also said no to the wages.

  • j February 1, 2019 at 11:00 am

    I nearly spat my coffee out when I read that Chelsea were asking for £35 and we offered them £5 classic Levy

    • Accy February 1, 2019 at 11:00 am

      not true

      • Accy February 1, 2019 at 11:00 am

        He was offered and that was as far as it went. The rest is made up.

  • Elevenstonedidiots February 1, 2019 at 9:27 am

    Batsuey would have been the signing of more garbage. He is a Chsea flop who has scored 3 goals in 21 games for Valencia and they couldn’t wait to offload him. I hope the rumours of our interest were not true.

    • SpursGoliath February 1, 2019 at 9:36 am

      If it was only a loan you would have either signed up a flop for a few months or Poch works his magic and gets the lad purring and then what? You’ve done some player development for Chelsea. Passing on that one was a ‘no-brainer’ – he most likely wasn’t going to add much more than Moura and Son really, asking him to hit the ground running for only 15 or so games? Nonsense one that.

  • Panama Paul February 1, 2019 at 9:23 am

    Batshuayi – PML when I read we were “trying” for him. ENIC smoke and mirrors for all the Dum Dums.”Oh well, we tried but it was Chelsea, What do you expect?” Another one that supposedly got away – how can one club be so unlucky in the transfer window? Oh yeah, we’re run by a bean counter and a coffin dodger.

  • MrChickenHead February 1, 2019 at 9:14 am

    Batshit went to Palace WTF. Anyone but us Huh.

    • Panama Paul February 1, 2019 at 9:31 am

      No surprise really. Savvy clubs use the Jan window to seed the lesser teams with loans that won’t bite them in the bum but might scuttle their close rivals. As Chelsea are chasing us, there was no way they would give us a hand in keeping ahead of them.

  • Ronan February 1, 2019 at 8:59 am

    Another month-long opportunity to add quality used instead to offload quality. Confirms again that praise is due only to poch and the players. And clarifies one more time the ambitions of enic.

  • Eddie February 1, 2019 at 8:16 am

    Very quiet window with nobody of note making a move.Couldn’t move Jansen on because Levy wanted almost what he paid for someone who failed us.At the same time Liverpool gave Lazar to Palace for nothing.Sometimes you have to suck it up.I was right,no incomings in Jan.

    • Eddie February 1, 2019 at 8:26 am

      PS.My point being they cost very similar transfer fees.

    • Tappaspur February 1, 2019 at 8:27 am

      Top 4 in the face of adspursity. its quite abspurd

  • Exile February 1, 2019 at 7:57 am

    If we didn’t find anyone in the last window to buy it was hardly surprising that we didn’t buy anyone in this one. There’s clearly no money available due to the costs of the project and all that the club was going to try to do was offload as much as they could.
    It does show the sense of priorities that the club felt it best take the money on Mousa rather than let him go for nothing, when we are desperately short in the midfield area. taking 10 million now and missing out on 60 million from cl is Daniels calculation, I’m sure he put it through the spreadsheet.

  • Tappaspur February 1, 2019 at 6:30 am

    F u c k off snow!!

    • Tappaspur February 1, 2019 at 6:43 am

      I wonder how many players will be bunking off today. Guv the ABS on the astons playing up. (Best not to risk it) The misses using the rover and me old e type wont start

  • East Stand February 1, 2019 at 2:49 am

    Got to love Sky Sports, “How deadline day unfolded”… they still think it’s 2005.

    It was cold, the EU played hardball over the Irish backstop and people got on with whatever it was they were doing, that’s how it ‘unfolded’….

  • Legoverlass February 1, 2019 at 1:04 am

    So we couldn’t have done a loan deal for a player like Sanchez from Barca ?

  • Marsinho January 31, 2019 at 11:12 pm

    Wouldn’t surprise me if poch didn’t even bother making out a list of players for the simple fact levy was never gonna be true to he’s words in backing him up this window and who knows the next 10 future windows ahead.

  • Daveyboi January 31, 2019 at 11:01 pm

    Instead of a Trophy cabinet we just need a fancy notice board with meaningless stats like –

    1st club to do the buy no 1 double ……..

  • Lilywhite without the II January 31, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    and all this rubbish about the club offering Poch players….come on, really…they offer him sh it so why would he bother…

  • East Stand January 31, 2019 at 10:35 pm

    Despite all the frustration over transfers this summer, there is virtually no quality available this January that might benefit us in the present.

    • Lilywhite without the II January 31, 2019 at 10:48 pm

      I kind of agree, however like Chelsea, we could have looked at getting a deal done ready for the summer…..It’s proven Poch needs time with players but that still makes no difference to our transfer policy..its just bizarre on so many levels how Levy operates…he cant even get rid of players let alone bring anyone in..

  • Lilywhite without the II January 31, 2019 at 10:29 pm

    If we really did go in for Batshuayi you literally may as well remove all staff from the building involved in our scouting team….as if Chelsea would give him to us anyway…”we tried”…bla bla bla..Levy has turned what is something normal into a stigma…

  • Aussie in Switzerland January 31, 2019 at 10:02 pm

    Bullshit in the press saying that Chelsea would loan us Batshit. Some bullshit gets written I tells ya

  • Billy the yid January 31, 2019 at 8:56 pm

    Maybe he’s gonna report on Harry’s remarkable recovery. Either that or he’s pissed someone off at sky sports cos he got the bum deal

  • Elevenstonedidiots January 31, 2019 at 8:43 pm

    Ha ha the poor unfortunate sky sports presenter outside our training ground looks like hes losing the will to live.

    • Elevenstonedidiots January 31, 2019 at 8:45 pm

      He looks like a man who knows hes going to have to freeze his balls off for another 2 hours for nothing!

  • Billy the yid January 31, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    Absolutely priceless. Tonight harry kane releases a vid of him starting some training. How many times are people gonna be hoodwinked by this garbage????

  • Tappaspur January 31, 2019 at 7:24 pm

    So Vincent j is staying. We’ll need him for our b team if kaz sterling goes out on loan. Will be good for troy. He’ll have a lot of football to play. (Under 18s too) troy work on your core son. I suggest rope walking/balancing

    • Tappaspur January 31, 2019 at 7:27 pm

      Jansen was a fool to turn down the Brighton loan move offered to him. “Fight his was back in” my arse!

      • East Stand February 1, 2019 at 2:36 am

        Poch has fallen out with Vinny, he’s burned his bridges. Not even sure he’s been registered as part of the squad for the league.

        Yet another poorly fitting punt from Levy just like NoClue…

  • Tappaspur January 31, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    Poch saving all the money for the summer. Shame we couldn’t of paid a bit extra to get them in now, giving them good time to learn how their new colleagues football brain works and our systems. Probably be levy time in the summer. Arrggh!

    • Ethan February 1, 2019 at 2:59 am

      That’s what we thought last January

  • Paddio January 31, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    When he’s back in the summer it will be like

    He’s like a new signing
    Poch has done wonders like Sissoko

  • JimmyGrievance January 31, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    Sorry, not sure how to add this pic. Take a look at the link it sums up our man Poch and the man at bottom DL

  • Accy January 31, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    If Fulham get relegated, we will 100% be back in for Ryan Sessegnon this summer.

    • Exile January 31, 2019 at 5:18 pm

      Bollox we will. Levy would never pay the sort of fee they will look for. The big clubs will get him. We should have been in for both brooks and or Maddison but dl only interested in players on the cheap.

      • Accy January 31, 2019 at 7:27 pm

        Brooks would be excellent.

        Not sure about Sess, although he’ll probably be more like £25m this time. I mean, is he a forward or not?

        • Tappaspur January 31, 2019 at 7:45 pm

          Sessy at £35mil. yes please still. 6 year contract. Bye bye davies in the summer. Fulham making sessy look shit. Him and rose would be perfect.

  • Nick January 31, 2019 at 4:39 pm

    Pochs comments this week hint towards a big squad overhaul in the summer.older players out replacements in,then time for all to bed in if they work at all.Enjoy the moment you’ve never had it so good & probably never will again

  • delboy denmark January 31, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    Potchi asked Levy to be brave…. AND ENDS UP WITH A SMALLER SQAUD…… ffs

  • Nick January 31, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    When was the last window we ended up genuinely stronger than before the transfers ?

  • Lilywhite January 31, 2019 at 3:57 pm

    There’s a clothing store I used to frequent for years – I knew my size, quality was great, purchased online over and over, never needing to go to the store. Returns were rare. Lately, the quality has plummeted and the sales and terms slipped too. Every time I try and snatch a good deal, I wind up w “final sale” garments purchased at a great price but they’re horrible – can’t be worn and can’t be returned! So what little I paid is of total waste. No more I say.

  • Exile January 31, 2019 at 3:44 pm

    Shows the status of our club when on deadline day the chairman is trying to get around £300000 off the wage billon offloading N’Koudou and then allegedly tries to screw £1million extra of Sevilla for Jansen. That will pay for his bonus or the extra overtime he’s been paying for the project.
    Mettle of the man is that the table he looks for is the one where it puts points won for pounds spent,serious boner for him

    • East Stand February 1, 2019 at 2:39 am

      It’ll pay for the toilet blocks and bog brushes in the shopping mall you see. We have these problems because Joe Lewis is only worth 6bn you see…

      • East Stand February 1, 2019 at 2:44 am

        Levy likes to sell to Harrods and shop in Poundland…

  • Billy the yid January 31, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    If that batshit ain’t better than llorente I hope he got himself a trade at college

  • paul January 31, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Jansen to Betis off as Baldy hikes the price on an agreed deal at the last minute and then tells Chelsea we wouldn’t be interested in taking Batshit on loan until the end of the season.

    Daniel Levy – hacking off all and sundry since 2001

    • Willie! January 31, 2019 at 8:59 pm

      Madness. What is this bald wanker playing at, deliberate sabotage? Check his coat pocket for betting receipts (and ignore the orange peels)

  • Only Me January 31, 2019 at 3:03 pm

    Lost money on this lad – gave us nothing!! I hope he at least works as a make weight somehow.
