No Guarantee Deal Will Be Done By 29th July

No Guarantee Deal Will Be Done By 29th July

The Mirror are running with the suggestion that the Bonzo to City deal will be ironed out by the time Spurs face City in the USA next month.

That game is the final match of the preseason tour held at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday July 29th kick-off is at 11pm.

Whilst it would be tidy to get the transfer done in time for the preseason Gladys doesn’t believe Levy is fussed either way.

Glad said: “Walker is a Spurs player if he missed all the friendlies it would bother anyone here. Pep doesn’t feel the same way and Daniel’s attitude is so what?”

This deal, if it happens at all needs to be entirely on Tottenham’s terms. Bonzo might not be Alli or Kane but he is still a rock solid, first XI player and ENIC, let alone Spurs the football team simply cannot be seen to dropping their knickers at the first time of asking.

The ‘building something special’ line may have worn thin some time ago with me, but some narky pants blogger is the least of ENIC’s concerns.

Lenders and all the other assorted commercial partners do not expect the club to start selling off assets, let alone before the bloody doors have opened to the the New Destination™.

This incidentally is the dark cloud that ought to be over Levy’s head for the next good few years. Whoever shines at Spurs must be retained or the whole gig is a joke.

Flogging off Bonzo is something I’ve been charitable about for two reasons. Unlike many of you, I think he’s a halfwit and a liability anyway. Plus, there’s extenuating circumstances.

However the message this sale will send out whenever it is done – will be a poor one.

  • Aside from cerebrospinal fluid, what's on your mind?

  • cyril June 26, 2017 at 3:10 pm

    i agree that walker is prone to accidents. he makes at least one dumb decision in a game, sometimes 2 or 3 and i think having toby inside him patches over the problem. he has improved under poch a significant amount and now actually looks over his shoulder to spot the left back coming in behind him. i love his pace altho he still gets a nosebleed when withing 30 yards of the opposition’s goal line and his pace is something he relies on too much to get him out of trouble.. his crossing and defending have improved but with trippier available i would take 50 mill. the only downside is if he is really popular in the squad and it shows others there is another path.

  • mattspurs June 26, 2017 at 2:55 pm

    So Walker is leaving us for a team that came behind us in the league and won no trophies?

  • Caspurs♿️ June 26, 2017 at 1:42 pm

    Foody corner:
    Is there a cheaper cut of beef which is similar to the fillet?

    • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:49 pm

      What are you hoping to do with it?

      • Caspurs♿️ June 26, 2017 at 1:55 pm

        Make some pastirma which involves curing a fillet of beef, but I’d rather my first attempt not be on a whole fillet.

        • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 2:00 pm

          Woah, that`s way out of my limited realms of knowledge. Ask your butcher dude. Buthcer dude`ll tell you.

          • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 2:14 pm

            I witnessed an English farmer try to make cured ham – it went mouldy.

            • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 2:17 pm

              Hahaha. A cure of some form then, Alexander Flemming stylee.

        • McG ⚽⚽ June 26, 2017 at 2:01 pm

          Maybe try half fillet. You will only be left feeling half empty if it goes wrong..

    • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 2:00 pm

      All down to what you buy and how you cook it.

      Stay out of supermarkets and ask a butcher ‘what’s good?’ that’s my advice.

      • Caspurs♿️ June 26, 2017 at 2:10 pm

        Will do, it’s a spicy cured beef recipe, no cooking involved, and bloody yummy!

    • Willie! June 26, 2017 at 9:48 pm

      Fillet is usually pretty mild and low fat.
      Reckon onglet (aka hanger/shirt steak) would be a cheap and similar substitute.

  • McG ⚽⚽ June 26, 2017 at 1:17 pm

    I see Sandro Ramirez has yet to complete a deal with Toffees. There’s a player we should be in for, 5.2 mil & third choice striker sorted. Would take him over Ox any day of the week.

  • Daniel Primus June 26, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    walker does not seem eager to leave, we are not eager to sell! who cares unless city cough up 60mill or something stupid like that out of pure desperation/ remember he signed a 5 year deal last September so i can see walker as a spurs player next season tbh because i believe there is no need to cripple ourselfs with a big season at wembley. CL and the rest! halfwitt he may be but he is a better more powerful right back then tripper. full backs will be rotated so walker needs to get used to that plus tripper deserved his run of games.

    selling to city will do nothing but weaken us unless levy surprises us all with some quality signing but………. well you know.

    • Syd 😎 June 26, 2017 at 1:32 pm

      DP. i happen to agree totally with all that.

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    Sell and move on…thats clever….but these clubs have to know they cant push us around and Levy playing with them over Walker may end up with us copping a few City players that will work out for us

    • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 1:16 pm

      “Walker may end up with us copping a few City players that will work out for us”

      Yes.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:21 pm

        Its not a strategy its the cards Levy is holding and there is nothing to lose

  • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    Just saw the Ox Chambermaid blog, I would very much like this to happen.

    • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      Testicles crossed.

      • Caspurs♿️ June 26, 2017 at 1:08 pm

        Butts plugged?

        • McG ⚽⚽ June 26, 2017 at 1:14 pm

          Mr Hammy who’s managed 17 games last season, 10 the season before & 17 the season before that. Just what we need, the new Darren Anderton. Oooooh can’t wait. Will never happen anyway!

            Ah, sorry my butt, I mean my bat..

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:11 pm

      Is Ox not a winger.I csnt say Ive noticed that much about him.
      The only three Arse players that I though were worth a punt were Henry,Fabregas and Sanchez so what do I know

      • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:15 pm

        Yes he`s a winger, likes to cut in, dribbles well, decent pace and hard working. A Poch type player for sure.

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:20 pm

          I just think that our most imprtant position today is Dembeles.We need more creativity coming out of midfield central. Wingers we have quite a few and the backs are wing backs..While he may be a good addition we should still even mote importantly looking for a dynamic central mid player. This is how we will win things

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 26, 2017 at 1:17 pm

      Ox joined the wrong club in the first place and its ruined his career. He could av been fantastic but Wenger messed his development up, didn’t identify his strongest position, dropping him over and over. Poch would have made him the player he should be. Maybe not too late if he gets out now.

    • Daniel Primus June 26, 2017 at 1:22 pm

      they would never sell to us, we would never buy from them – next.

      • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:28 pm

        Might be worth a cheeky punt though, DP. I`ve heard you like it each way?

        • Caspurs♿️ June 26, 2017 at 1:30 pm

          I’m sorry, the Ox is dead to me, soiled goods..

          • McG ⚽⚽ June 26, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    If this is def our new kit next season, I quite like the blue one..

    http://www.101greatgoals.com/news/chelsea-tottenhams-good-reason-not-revealing-new-signings/

  • JuandeInternational June 26, 2017 at 12:13 pm

    Should we stick to our guns and City start upping the pressure via the usual press nonsense, “player really wants to join”, a city player or two saying Walker needs to be a blue etc., then the only way I could see this becoming an issue is if Walker starts to become a toxic influence around the squad and City use that to force a lower price.

    Like H, I’m not that bothered if Walker leaves, I’m more concerned with what baldy plans to do with any money raised from player sales.

    • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 12:29 pm

      The money will evaporate as usual.

      • Syd 😎 June 26, 2017 at 12:33 pm

        It’s a scientific fact. Money cannot evaporate

        • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 12:58 pm

          …and I believe you know Mr Levy…

          • Syd 😎 June 26, 2017 at 1:07 pm

            Id like to meet him over lunch one day

            • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 1:18 pm

              I would not.

              • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:20 pm

                I`d like to watch you meeting him for lunch.

                • Horndog June 26, 2017 at 1:38 pm

                  …to be a fly on that wall.

                You know you would! The car park cafe 👹

            • JuandeInternational June 26, 2017 at 5:07 pm

              And when it came to settling the bill Levy would negotiate to pay 10% now and then the next 70% over 5 lunchtimes, with the final 20% dependant upon the appearance of acid reflux, repeating, and if he enjoys the first two shits he has post meal.

      • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 12:49 pm

        You know what funny Harry…how did these fuckers that everyone wants now arrive…and whats more what about that geezer in the white chariot….

        • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 1:00 pm

          I know what isn’t funny.

          Watching other teams lift trophies up in the air.

          One in seventeen years Ron.

          Spurs have become a glory-free zone.

          • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:06 pm

            Not Free but I get your point. Surely success will come in the form of tangible metal at some point. We have been on an upward trajectory and look destined for trophies according to many pundits..I cant afford patience as time is important to me but happy where we are at and just see that as a stepping stone to a dynasty. In that way I believe in Tottenhams future.

            • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:25 pm

              I`ve got high hopes for Winks in that position.

              • Daniel Primus June 26, 2017 at 1:26 pm

                i love winksy, and with lamela and rose to come back – whats the worry about lol

              • ronwol196061🇨🇦 June 26, 2017 at 1:29 pm

                Winks is good but we would have to see how he unfolds as a player.
                I havent seen enough from him yet.
                Its a huge position and he is a confident kid…so it might work out…
                I just havent seen enough of his industriousness yet. But Im not discounting his potential.

                • Freund or Foe June 26, 2017 at 1:31 pm

                  Agree Ron, room to grow.

                • Horndog June 26, 2017 at 1:36 pm

                  I have seen enough of him. I have seen the light. He is going to be a good one.

                • Harry Hotspur June 26, 2017 at 2:02 pm

                  I havent seen enough from him yet.

                  Ron, are are you nuts? The boy’s got skills.

  • VincentianMagic June 26, 2017 at 12:12 pm

    I think a lot of this hinges on the issue of whether we need to sell to buy. Apart from circa £50M for Walker, I’m not sure how much we will accrue from the likes of Sissoko, the two NJs and Wimmer – maybe £40M?

    Personally, if we can replace WImmer with a decent CB – Ginter for example; Sissy for someone like Barkley or Seri; and maybe the two NJs for Gray/Under/Meyer, then I think overall we will be ok. We would still require another CF though and they don’t come cheap.

    Perhaps the Real Madrid youngster – but that would be a risk.

    • Syd 😎 June 26, 2017 at 12:32 pm

      VM Those sell and buys i totally agree with

  • Syd June 26, 2017 at 11:26 am

    Still not sure this deal will go ahead. It may do but as you say, Levy is holding all the cards. He may or may not be a halfwit but he still forms part of the best defensive unit in the league.

  • Syd June 26, 2017 at 11:25 am
