For a club that just trousered £50million odd for a player and is running out of time to shore up a dangerously thin squad, Spurs are doing a good impression of not having a care in the world.

Hot on the heels from losing out on Siggy for the sake of £10million, the same figure is leaving the Lilywhites adrift from buying another player.

According to this 👆 journalist, Tottenham have offered Davinson Sánchez a 5 year deal but yet again, it’s the parting with the money bit that is holding up proceedings.

I don’t know much, but I know we’re running out of transfer targets and the clock is against us and not with us.

Bedwetting Remoaners at The Guardian have decided to blame this latest debacle on Brexit. The pound is at a record low – since 2009.

Needless to say The Guardian haven’t factored in how much Levy’s endless fannying around has added to this deal.

    On this one I disagree. Yes he looks a decent prospect, but he cost Ajax €5 and they want ten times that after a single season in which the club won nothing. Ajax know English clubs are minted and are taking the piss. Just because the money is there doesn’t mean we should drop our pants and bite down. If it was someone with a proven record in the PL or another major league then I would say don’t dick around, pay what is being asked, but not in this case. If it means getting the player to get arsey in order to reach a better price then so be it, plenty of other clubs are doing the same.

    If we miss out on Sanchez or Barkley on price it’s hugely dissapponting. Personally not massively upset about Sig, liked him when he played for us but don’t think he’d have added that much. Barkley could.

    Spurs are now the “Red Cross”, of Clubs. We help everyone. other clubs wont need Scouts, they will just sit and wait to see who we are interested in. Then, swoop in and leave us with our mouths open and we will plod on and buy some Schmuch who has polio, or worse.

    Why Didnt Bastard Face offer 100 Big ones for Siggy ? What with our cut of the add ons, and what we got from Swansea initially it would have more than covered the fee and we would have the player along with the sell on money, its like that Cheese with the holes in it, the more of it you buy the less cheese you get.

    • spursmyarse August 16, 2017 at 9:25 pm

    Levy wants to pay £10m less for decent looking player who has been playing in system similar to ours – you wanna know why?

    simples he has his eye on another useless french league import who incidentally will cost £10m

            we’re skint with enormous outgoings on the new build, Levy changing details every 2 minutes will inevitably mean it costs between 10-20% more, somethings gotta give because don’t expect him to pay for the ground, fans will pay for next 30-40 years

                I’m expecting a re-run of the last two windows with a signing of a £10m waste of a squad place to make a show, don’t get why Levy’s quibbling over the fee, he’s got way over book on Walker so paying a bit over book on this guy is just the cost to change the defenders, he’ll still be £10m up the overall deal ffs

  • Matthew23 August 16, 2017 at 8:30 pm

    For heaven’s sake, Levy, just splurge the £46m on him now and put us out of our misery. Doesn’t matter what he’s worth or whether we all had to Google him to see if he’s actually any good, we just want you to spend a shitload of money!

    Tizzy
    I know neither will happen but £40m for Sanchez or an additional £70k extra each week for our first eleven to keep them here? Thats what 40mil can do

    You are placing a single payment from a one-time saving opportunity into a revolving slot.

    Further, you are comparing an asset that holds value against simple operating expenses that are worth nothing in asset value.

    I do like your way of thinking, but to pay better wages, Spurs must grow organically, which means growing value in assets purchased, and growing residually in tickets and merchandise driven by those assets.

    In other words, the assets eventually will need to win something to drive the funds necessary to keep growing organically as needed.

    I don’t think Spurs do that only by polishing up what they have. They simply need to add some productive assets.

    This is from someone who loves, supports, and believes in this squad. They need a little help to make the (literal) final hurdles.

    Levy and Joe need to step up and support a manager who can make this squad grow into their true worth with some positive reinforcement.

    Cheers, Tizzy. Hope that makes some sense.

    • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 8:15 pm

      £40mil is roughly the extra we will gross from ticket sales each year from the new stadium once it opened. Its kinda why I asked the question as the 40mil figure kinda worked out into a few of my calculations 🙂

  • Øivind Lundberg August 16, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    I find it funny that some still dont understand how Levy goes about his buisness…

    I’ll make it easy.

    1. Find targets and set a price spurs are willing to pay.
    2. Talk to player and/or agent and make them an offer they accept. Make player promise to come to us.
    3. Get player to reject all other clubs.
    4. Keep offer for player regardless of what other clubs offer. Player will reject it anyway.
    5. Wait until selling club run out of time, and player has made so much trouble the club is glad to get ridd. Then lower the offer…
    6. Sign players on deadline day.

    • James147 August 16, 2017 at 7:34 pm

      Not necessarily. There were reports last Summer that he’d agreed terms with Barca but changed his mind, feeling he would have little chance of breaking into the team.

    • James147 August 16, 2017 at 7:38 pm

      Also you could make the same argument about someone like Dele Alli. The mega clubs can’t buy every promising youngster out there. Sanchez is only 19 I think.

  • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:29 pm

    I know neither will happen but £40m for Sanchez or an additional £70k extra each week for our first eleven to keep them here? Thats what 40mil can do

    • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:32 pm

      To put this £40mil figure into perspective…Its also a similar amount to our gate receipts in 2015/2016 and and the increase each season our new home will gain from the additional seats.

    • Freund or Foe August 16, 2017 at 7:33 pm

      There would have to clauses, like returning to previous salary in 12 months time when the 40mil is gone. Apart from that, it’s a wonderful idea.

  • coys1882 August 16, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    Bearing in mind that Sanchez was bought by Ajax from Colombia, just over a year ago, for only about 4 million euros, I suspect our other South America centre-back prospect, Juan Foyth, at only around 11 million euros (and the same age as Sanchez before his transfer to Ajax), will be starting to look a lot more attractive to Levy right about now!

    I’m just hazarding a guess here, but unless Ajax relent on the price, I expect in classic Levy negotiating style (if that isn’t an oxymoron!), that we will plump for the cheaper option, a la N’Jie, Nkoudou, etc and go for Foyth.

    Now to be fair, 45 million is a hell of a lot to pay for this Sanchez kid and if in a couple of years Foyth turns out to be on a par with his South American counterpart, then we will have saved about 35 million quid, which is not to be sniffed at. If, on the other hand, Foyth turns out to be the reincarnation of Willie Young and Sanchez goes on to become a world beater, then Levy will look like a bungling cheapskate yet again!

    • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:19 pm

      Maybe he should just buy both of them then

      • coys1882 August 16, 2017 at 7:20 pm

        I agree and that is what I was hoping, with the sale of Wimmer to subsidize the deal.

        • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:21 pm

        How do yo know?

  • mikespurs August 16, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    So. Selling walker & rose is good business for the crazy amount of money. But everyone is too expensive & we’d be stupid to buy them at those prices. We dont need anyone cause the backups are better. (Davis better then rose is a new one.) The squad is thinner then last year but thats ok because we have players coming back, & dont worry, noone will ever be injured again this season. Shitscko will become good (you wait & see?). We do our business late & thats just what we do but people need time to fit into pochs system. Anything im missing?
    Id feel better with a fallover drunk sailor navigating a mind field in the dark with a hippy crystal then whos sailing this ship. But dont worry, im very calm & the window isnt shut.

  • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 7:13 pm

    Solution is to sell Rose to Chelsea and then buy Sanchez and Sessegnon for 30 million.

  • Horndog August 16, 2017 at 7:10 pm

  • SpurAndy 🍒π August 16, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    I look forward to the arrival of Sanchez. His excitement at joining a top team. His subsequent growth into a world star. His head being turned by the Galactico syrens of the deep. His desperate wish to play for them as he always supported Real/Barca as a kid. His refusal to train and his final exit making us £1 billion profit.

    Whether me or anybody else thinks its expensive is unimportant. You can’t take 50mill for one of your players whilst simultaneously building a shiney new corporate nightmare in order to join in with the other big shots, but then low ball every time you attempt to do business! Your part of the game. Play it and stop pissing about. Its like a vegetarian who only eats chicken.

    • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 7:11 pm

  • SimonSpur August 16, 2017 at 7:07 pm

    Our transfer policy is the right one. We need to be the ones finding these players and paying £3M not the mugs paying £46M one year later.

    • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 7:09 pm

      But we’re not, and that’s the weakness of your statement. We don’t appear to have any scouting worth the name. Pleat found Alli, kindly passed that on to Levy.

      • SimonSpur August 16, 2017 at 7:14 pm

        Berbatov Modric Carrick Bale Walker have all been examples of this. We fuck up when we spend big money.

        • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:25 pm

          This is also because we never seem to get our prime targets when we are going for the 20mill plus…

          If we picked up Hazard, Willian, O. Dembele, Luis Suarez, Mane…

          We wouldn’t have been left with Sissoko, Soldado etc.

          How we got Eriksen for £11m god only knows – he was by no means an unknown, would have cost 4 times that in todays market.

  • Dublin Yid August 16, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    Heard sky are set to save themselves £200 by not putting anyone outside Wembley on deadline day..decision based on a hunch !

  • SimonSpur August 16, 2017 at 7:04 pm

    £46M is a lot of money. I haven’t got my calculator out but I reckon our entire defence plus subs cost less than that and we had the best defence in the PL last season.

    • Dublin Yid August 16, 2017 at 7:16 pm

      I totally agree it’s an insane amount of money, but in the grand scheme of fantasy which is the premier league, then it is not! Our talent is beginning to outgrow our structure! When our players see opportunities to double their salaries elsewhere or more than, it’s going to end one way which will be an exodus! I see this happening next season’s summer window unless we start behaving like a big club should. Our owner is a billionaire ffs.

      • SimonSpur August 16, 2017 at 7:26 pm

        I just don’t think this is sustainable. This is like any other inflation bubble: It will burst and clubs will go bust that’s if FIFA don’t step in to stop this madness.

        • Dublin Yid August 16, 2017 at 8:00 pm

          Hopefully that’s what happens and were left standing tall but can’t see it somehow..

  • Dublin Yid August 16, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    An Ajax mate of mine said with the mad money going around now he would be a steel at that price. Strengths: A powerful tackler with a great awareness of positioning. Weakness is his distribution when he wins it of course something that can be worked on. If we lose this, especially when he has chosen us over so called bigger teams, would be a major fuck up on levys part.

    • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 7:04 pm

      That’s a big weakness. Probably gets away with it in the Eredivisie but in the PL that’s a different story.

  • Matt August 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    This all a waste of time, pissing around like he is the only decent defender in the world. There is no way he could be worth 46 million, so best to move on and find someone else. The Spurs scouts must have other targets that are less risky than this one.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 August 16, 2017 at 7:50 pm

      Its not risky

    • mikespurs August 16, 2017 at 7:52 pm

      Spurs scouts have been mia for sometime. There afraid if they suggest someone levy will ask for their papers

  • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 6:59 pm

    We will end up with Foyth (10mil), Barkley (25m) and Pape Cheikh Diop (10m) and thats it. We arent going to sign a 40mil player, let alone a defender lol

    • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 7:02 pm

      That’s my bet too.

      Apart from Barkley. If he’s injured and unlikely to be fully fit till November, we may be tempted to wait till January and pick him up for peanuts.

      • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:03 pm

        I would wait til next year and get him for nothing 🙂

    • Dublin Yid August 16, 2017 at 7:03 pm

      Not good enough !

  • 3J August 16, 2017 at 6:58 pm

    The Guardian didn’t blame this specific debacle on Brexit, it used this a transfer as an example of the weakness of the £ in a broader piece about football finances. And considering we’re on a stricter budget than the rest of the top 6, it is a bigger issue for us than others. And please stop suggesting £10m is a paltry sum of money, or that £36m isn’t a reasonable opening offer for the guy. But I’m sure you’ve thoroughly thought through your “just pay whatever they ask” transfer policy.

    • Harry Hotspur August 16, 2017 at 7:04 pm

      Thanks very much for e x p l a i n i n g the article that I read and fully understood.

      If you read the fucking thing (properly this time cunt) it leads with a photo of Davinson and talks specifically of this deal and actually says that this player is getting dearer every day.

      The article does not mention you fairy tale about us being of limited means.

      Given that we have ‘the Bonzo money’ that gives us direct parity with the market. Quite why you decided to take it upon yourself to lecture me on what the player is worth is anyone’s guess.

      You’re not selling and you’re not buying.

      Now fuck off and go clog up someone else’s server you sad lonely dickhead.

  • Harry Hotspur August 16, 2017 at 6:57 pm

    Levy obviously believes he is bigger than the transfer market or he’s totally deluded. Plus levy is half the issue with the inflated market with the price he extorted for the walker transfer. Would say walker, siggy and sánchez are worth about the same.

    All you need to now about Levy was in that NASDAQ interview. Deluded isn’t the half of it.

And if you don’t you are shameful and to be ripped to shreds regardless of the fact that there are likely to be plenty of other products that can do exactly the same job.

    • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 6:47 pm

      The 10% that did know he is very very good, and you would struggle to find a better defender for less. He has pedigree, like Vertonghen, Eriksen etc. Not an unknown gamble like N’Koudou

      Van Dijk is not worth twice as much, for example.

      The price has been hiked this window obviously, but we sold Walker for 50mill…which in itself was bonkers.

      • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 6:49 pm

        What pedigree?

        • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 6:54 pm

          21 years old
          Player of the season in a side that won the Eredivisie, a side that included the likes of Dolberg, Klaasen
          Played in more European finals than the rest of our squad put together…

          Good on the ball
          Good in the air
          Quick
          Can step up and drive into midfield

          Exactly what we need for Wembley and I think he’d be an improvement on Eric Dier

          Who would you buy instead with the money?

          • gloster1861 August 16, 2017 at 6:58 pm

            That’s no pedigree worth speaking of. United had no problems beating them in that final.

            • Harry Hotspur August 16, 2017 at 6:59 pm

              That’s less a pedigree more a list of things to be hopeful about.

              • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:05 pm

                Who would you sign instead?
                Because I think he looks more ready for Prem football than Foyth does

                • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:07 pm

                  I dont think we need a centre back. Im shocker to see we’re even looking at someone in that price bracket.

                  • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:12 pm

                    I didn’t either but now I think we do. I wasn’t convinced by Dier at CB last season defensively, and Sanchez can play RB also. Wimmer isn’t good enough, and an injury to Vertonghen/Tobes would be troublesome.

                    • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:25 pm

                      Ben Gibson from Middlesborough for half the Sanchez price would be a good shout. However, his values probably gone up over £30mil as we seem to be looking

            • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:00 pm

              Looking at United needs for decent centre backs im sure Jose woul;d have dropped 50mil on him if he was any good

              • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:03 pm

                They dropped £30m on Bailly last year
                They spent £30m on Lindelof this year…both before this ridiculous inflation
                If they needed a CB they probably would have.

                This is how much promising CBs cost these days
                Just shy of a full back who can run fast.

                • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 7:05 pm

                  Yeah but Untied pay these fees as its less than 4% of their annual income. It would be 12% of ours 🙂

                  • Deeps August 16, 2017 at 7:09 pm

                    True.
                    But that doesn’t impact on the market value of players.
                    If you want quality you have to pay for it, and buying a complete unknown (e.g. Foyth, as good as he may be) will not improve our first 11, or make our bench stronger for THIS season…which is what we need if we are going to win the league.

      • Tizzy August 16, 2017 at 6:52 pm

    I can handle the Siggy thing over the difference. By all accounts, based upon the players age, skill set and overall ability to lose Sanchez by a similar amount would be a travesty.
