No Deals In Place Yet For Siggy Or Barkley

No Deals In Place Yet For Siggy Or Barkley

Ronald Koeman is confident Everton are close to striking a deal with Swansea for playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Everton manager has also revealed the club have received no firm interest in midfielder Ross Barkley and the England international is now back in training after groin surgery.

Everton have had two approaches for Sigurdsson turned down by the Swans after being heavily linked with the 27-year-old throughout the summer.

Swansea are thought to be holding out for £50million and their manager Paul Clement has suggested negotiations are currently at an impasse.

But Koeman claimed last weekend a deal could be imminent and he still feels that is the case.

Sigurdsson will not be involved in Swansea’s squad for their Premier League opener at Southampton on Saturday as the saga continues.

Koeman said: “It’s still close. That has not changed. I heard some rumours that talks had broken down but still we are in negotiations with Swansea.

“I heard the comments of Paul Clement, the manager of Swansea, and of course everybody would like to have news.

“That is better for us, better for them, but everybody knows the window is difficult. It is always a game between the buying club and the selling club but we are close and let’s hope we get the agreement as soon as possible.

“We are not in a hurry but finally we hope to do the deal.”

    If any other players don`t like what they have with us, they can fuck off too. Yeah Sissoko, I`m talking to you. Everyone else, as you were.

    A hero’s welcome for rose by the players? In 2 weeks we’ve gone from each one being peddled out to say their fine and dandy and the plan is working to some kind of prison yard revolt situation. Perfect prep for the last week before season opens. Spurs again are being well and truly ‘elited’.

        Not reeeeally. Its a full on offensive to disrupt all the same.

        • Camus August 11, 2017 at 9:24 am

          Yeah, course it is. They’re always looking for a story to try to disrupt us. We’ve gate-crashed the Sky 4 and Murdoch is NOT HAPPY (for whatever reason.)

          • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 9:33 am

            Yep. What’s funny is rose thought he was actually in control of the situation and they were 100% interested in him. Ha! Footballers.

  • N.Y.N.E August 11, 2017 at 8:38 am

    Harry would you agree with me if I said that I think that Poch doesn’t really see this “project” going anywhere and that he’s seriously considering his options?
    I think a lot of the staff (players and coaches) are getting quite fed up with the way Levy is doing business. Don’t get me wrong, as far as a BUSINESS I think he operates in a semi-healthy manner, IF the business wasn’t contingent on the actual ON PITCH results. But looking at it from a football perspective this is an utter disaster….

    So my question is: given the way things are going, how long before Poch can’t be bothered anymore and just resigns?

    Hello everyone. Hope you all had lovely summers despite the best efforts of Kim Jong-Levy. I’m looking forward to 90 or so minutes of football on Sunday and dreading everything else. We can’t really be on the verge of letting our first team become as weak as our squad. Can we?

    • gloster1861 August 10, 2017 at 11:57 pm

      Levy did it indeed. The guy knows exactly what he’s doing, this situation isn’t a mistake. His gamble is how far he can convince Poch not to complain.

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 12:02 am

        He does indeed. He’s a dirty double agent and I no likey.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 August 11, 2017 at 12:05 am

        He is playing brinkmanship with Poch?

        He will tell Levy to fuck off and there will be no negotiating when he is at the last fence.

      It cut off, he said we will sign at least 3 autographs after training.

      Are any of these fish swimming towards Enfield?

  • Nick August 10, 2017 at 11:48 pm

    Why should we have to raise wages to appease the likes of Rose? I disagree with his two left feet comment & say that he was a poor player before poch & was overweight & undisciplined technically.The real issue is keeping poch happy.If paying the players he believes he absolutely has to have,the right amount,then that is the real choice! Do we keep False Dawning or do we actually build & progress the football club not the property investment portfolio

    • mikespurs August 11, 2017 at 1:16 am

      I think the real point is all our wages are low so it hurts keeping players & signing new ones. Hense noone to replace a rightback we new would leave months ago. Onto the barcodes…….full steam ahead

  • Yeoyid August 10, 2017 at 11:45 pm

    Capping wages would be illegal, so that’s a no go, even FFP has to be voluntary, as it cannot be enforced by law.
    The answer is to regulate agents i.e. make them FIFA registered, adhering to a set code and fee structure, plus as they represent the player, the player should pay the agents fees not the clubs.

    I do like the American system of drafts and picks
    It keeos all teams with a chance if they are clever.

    The Chairman is a business man ONLY!with no affinity with the needs & wants of a football club.
    Truth is the highest paid are at clubs that win things,what comes first the player or the money or the trophies?Our little bald one believes that the money should only be dished out as & when the success happens,the players believe 2nd place warrants more money????? They see lesser players at lesser clubs on bigger wages.Now is the time for the premier league,fifa,UEFA, to step in & cap wages & tranfer fees.PSG are now looking to buy mbappe for £160m WTF.

        Why is capping wages illegal when there is a minimum wage? In reality the wage cap would not be illegal as the opportunity to increase income with sponsorship etc would not limit the individuals earning potential so could be enforced as part of the rules of the game?

      our esteemed chairman earns over £50,000 a week & does a shit job, he couldn’t trap a bag of cement – also say he & Lewis sold up for the rumoured £1billion, they’d trouser something in the region of between £500-£900 million profit despite no one person ever paying a penny to observe their talents, club owners are the problem, Levy would love a wage cap as it would boost his indecent already unearned potential gains

        Wonder what would have become of him had we signed a “name” to play left back in say 2013. Hull wouldn’t even have touched him.

        Basically he needs to fuck up, have a great season and a nice shinny new contract will come his way.

        • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 10:49 pm

          Our left backs when he signed (though he was signed as a winger)
          Lee Young-pyo
          BAE
          Gilberto

          Jeez we were shit

          • Alwaysnextweek August 10, 2017 at 10:53 pm

            And yet it took him 6 years to nail down a place. That’s sad.

            Point taken about the quality of our full backs. KWP is class in a glass compared to that trio.

    • jfdit August 10, 2017 at 11:59 pm

      spot on analysis as is comment below, any decent midfielder & coach will take both Walker & Rose to the cleaners simply by dropping the ball over their heads into the space behind them when they bomb forward, two “overated” average players who look good playing in Poch’s system of play

      They certainly are not world class, the likes of maldini & lahm were world class

  • Superspoz 🔪 August 10, 2017 at 10:26 pm

    I think we’ll be fine on the left back position, Davisis playing really well and the young kid Danny Rose-Peters is looking a real prospect.

    • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:28 pm

      It’s Doris I’m more concerned about. She wets the bed in the key games.

          Ask Doris

  • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    Pleaty has jumped in to the debate to call Rose ill-advised and “jumping the gun” (because we will sign 3 players by the dregs of midnight on 31st August.) He says Rose was no more special than the other 10 players over the last 2 seasons and that there are plenty of other good English full-backs (lists them). Good words from him. Don’t have a link, sorry.

    • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 10:29 pm

      What full backs did he name?

      • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:32 pm

        Bertrand, Shaw, Cresswell, Chilwell, Gibbs…
        Think he may have been struggling a bit after the first two!

        • Willy juice August 10, 2017 at 10:36 pm

          Haha, Bertrand would be first choice but saints will not sell imo. Wouldn’t be keen on the rest tho!

          I think we should stand firm and keep him this season! Tell him to jog on next year!

          • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:36 pm

            There’s a chance we do that, yeah.

    • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 10:30 pm

      Mahrez, Siggy and Barkley are all still available – any of those would be a good signing.

      Right back is trickier – how much for second fiddle to Trippier? It’s stupid to have not signed this player.

      Wimmer replacement – if Jan stays fit they’ll barely play so looking at someone 20-23 years old.

      • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:35 pm

        Yeah, I dunno. We’ve heard ‘3 signings’ from Poch and now Pleat as though that’s a given but no more, and 1 will likely be a goalie. If Wimmer goes, maybe he won’t be replaced, or the RB will also be able to play CB.

        • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 10:43 pm

          We need a lefty to cover at CB

          • Camus August 10, 2017 at 11:03 pm

            True, that.

  • Hartley™ August 10, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    We have a fantastic transfer policy.
    Everybody bedwet when we signed Trippier and Davies when we supposedly needed a striker, we got them in early and bedded them in just in time knowing that the two yorkshire boys would turn into first class cunts once they had been turned into half decent footballers. Let the next signing be a clue to the next cunt out.

    • Camus August 10, 2017 at 10:25 pm

      We need one to replace Alli. He’ll be the one we all despise next summer.

    • maximum spursman August 10, 2017 at 10:24 pm

      Agreed. You want out, win things, MORE MONEY then go about it aka Walker (not, totally, happy he was let go – for the example it sets) but he didn’t mouth off. This feels like Caesar (Poch) knifed by his Brutus (you know who) and others covered by Levy (given his lack of support for Poch).

  • maximum spursman August 10, 2017 at 10:11 pm

    Bloody hell! Can’t a man have a day out with his family – it, actually, didn’t rain today – without missing about 20 blogs! How many have we signed? What’s that, we are selling another one! You, really, cannot make this up.

    http://www.spurs-web.com/app/rose-interview-full-transcript/

    • Caspurs♿️ August 10, 2017 at 10:08 pm

      £60/65k a week apparently.

    • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 10:11 pm

      That may be out of date. I think it’s £65k pwk? Not 100% sure.

      • Matt August 10, 2017 at 10:22 pm

        Thank god for that. I thought he was scraping by on 35k. I will unpack the food parcel.

    • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      £65k but then his fam has just got a £150k deal at city that Rose’s uncle sorted out. Walker left because his wife wanted to be 20 minutes closer to Sheffield (not an extra £5m a year). Poor Danny misses his mum and doesn’t like it that some spurs fans were a bit mean when he was a bit shit so would consider leaving for an extra £5m a year

    • Alwaysnextweek August 10, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      God he mentioned his worth a lot.

      Clearly has an axe to grind with Spurs fans over his pre-Poch treatment by Spurs fans(that will be you Harry). In any case he had two right feet in those days – unfortunately he played on the left.

      • mattspurs August 10, 2017 at 10:16 pm

        He said two left feet – if only!

        • Alwaysnextweek August 10, 2017 at 10:19 pm

          That’s was exactly my point. One off season. Mmmm which one was that.

          If I recall correctly I googled him when he signed and Dele and Dier….

    Sorry to be awful and not know what anyone is saying about Rose on here cos I’ve not been really keeping up in close season and I’m pissed up and just touching in with this now. But I don’t hate him in the slightest for it.THE OPPOSITE. We all agree with him. He’s talking like a Spurs fan – even if it’s his self interest. Levy is a cunt and it’s all about to collapse on him. WE ARE PLAYING AWAY FROM HOME ALL SEASON. The players are being cheated. Snidgrass at West Ham is shit – the fans hate him and even he earns more than Rose. Levy out!!!!!!!!

  • Lilywhite without the II August 10, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    For me signing Barkley now has to be a must for damage limitation, minimum…not everyone favours him I get that but it’s a Poch type of player and he will be liked by the squad…

    Last season the gloom merchants said we’d be lucky to finish in the top six (hehe). We made signings, none of whom amounted to much, and still finished second.

    “The other sides around us have improved” I hear you sob.

    Have they? We won’t know until Christmas. Yes, they may have bought new players, but that’s no guarantee of improvement.

              This is insane. We had the best defence for the last 2 years and we are now discussing chucking in 3rd rate midfielder/wingers at full back. Disasterous. If we don’t get quality like for like in we are in trouble. Robertson would have been a good back up but we missed that boat too.

                Not if we play three at the back. I like the Vert, Toby, Eric combo at the back with two wing backs. The left wing back at the mo is Ben Davies and as Tripps committed hari kari I’d give Mr Winks the right wing back spot rather than Sissy.

                • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 6:59 pm

      • jfdit August 10, 2017 at 5:46 pm

        you’ve been busy today haven’t you?

        I’ve been anti ENIC for about 9 years on this blog, sometimes felt I was out on a limb but slowly most people have come to realise what a pair of clowns we have running the club, this Rose saga is another nail in the coffin for them, sooner they sell up & fuck off the better

        Firstly on Rose – what he’s said is quite true but what an ungrateful cunt, without Poch’s coaching he’d be at bournemouth or hull now – totally disrepectful to Poch and can’t see him being at the club beyond Xmas, he won’t be sold before then because he won’t pass a medical.

        The fact we may only have a dozen experienced outfield players for the game on sunday sums Levy up to a tee – knows the price of everything & the value of nothing. The reason he can’t sign the players we need is due to two factors – 1) most chairmen at top clubs won’t take his calls unless they’re trying to buy of us 2) he wouldn’t know a class footballer even if they kicked him in the bollox, the merrygoround of scouts/DOF’s/Managers prove this

        Was looking forward to this season after last seasons antics, most fans weren’t asking Levy to spend bundles, his net spend target could have stayed in place and we’d have a stronger squad with the bit between the teeth, no Levy does it his way & puts everyone on the back foot before we get started, he has form for this – he owns the Grove near me, used to be the place to go, nowadays hear nothing but bad reviews

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 10, 2017 at 6:12 pm

          He also forgot to mention he was a shit winger and harry saw he could have the attributes to be a quality wing back. He owes a lot to both coaches.

            he’s had a good couple of seasons but FFS he was a liability for most of his Spurs career, I remember the red card at Villa which probably cost us CL that season, the little wanker thinks he’s Marcelo when on a bad day he’s more like Ronald McDonald

            I’d sell him to chelsea, we’ll take Moses & Alonso in exchange, both are better players than him defensively

        • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 6:22 pm

          He doesn’t give a damn. He’ll have spent today stocktaking hi-viz vests and smirking to himself at that he refused to pay for one carton because it arrived two days later than agreed.

          • jfdit August 10, 2017 at 6:28 pm

            I predicted an exodus & I think it’s now underway, you can’t blame the players, they have short careers & want to win things

            if you’re at a club with owners with questionable ambition it’s only a matter of time before pastures new look inviting

            Levy thinks he can keep top talent at the club without paying the going rate, the man’s deluded beyond belief as you say

            • Harry Hotspur August 10, 2017 at 6:49 pm

              His belief in the ‘brochure’ is the same as a top ranking Scientologist.

              Who of any worth shares his shitty, third rate, homogenised 4 star hotel vibe? The NFL don’t. He has yet to secure a stadium sponsor and he’s trying to snide money out of a council house fund to finish the build.

              We’re about to be in more debt than anyone could dream of just so he can sell craft beer to wankers.

              The players want money and status – I say the wheels are about to come off.
