Right. Lots to wade through here and I’ll take my solicitor’s advice when before the Judge and keep the hyperbole to a minimum.

What I will interject here is that there’s nothing, nothing in this that I don’t bang on about endlessly. Yet certain posters on Spurs Community have a fit if my name is mentioned. Lap this up, toss pots!Β 

Whilst Pochettino understands that we can’t sign big stars, he’s getting increasingly frustrated that targets agreed to are not being delivered, despite these players being entirely affordable, within our range and agreeing to come. In fact is a number of cases fees have actually been agreed.

He’s not getting his choices with some regularity and things aren’t at all well between him and the bald man who offers up signings that Poch just doesn’t want. He’ll continue to say the right things for now but unless things change soon, at some point we’ll start to see stories appearing in the media. The Goat’s source guesses we might get another season from him at best unless things dramatically improve. But that’s just a guess.

The players don’t see the new ground as the be all and end all, they want to see ambition to go along with it and as for the wages thing, this isn’t player greed, its promises being made and then broken. A number of players are only still here because of Pochettino and if he goes this could all turn very quickly into a nightmare for the man at the top with the majority of our top names leaving………unless he (once again) makes moves to fix things. He has a VERY accomplished PR or ‘spin’ department.

On the good news front, a fee for Barkley has been agreed for some while at 20m but soured by last minute changes to deal structure instigated by the man at the top, so it may or may not happen…….and this isn’t the first time, there’s a long list of deals that never came off due to these last minute attempts to squeeze a bit out of a deal……… Lemar, Batshuayi, Berahino and going further back even Willian etc etc……The Goat hears that the failure to sign these players is down to one man.

What I’d like, is for Flat Earthers to take a moment and ask themselves if it’s really worth it.

Is it really worth the everlasting headache of inventing scenarios whereby I’m wrong? Is it really worth placing so much believe in some bald bloke that has never demonstrated any talent in advancing Spurs the football club?

This little weasel has been trousering millions of pounds in salary, whilst making bad decision after bad decision. The football has been in a coma for the best part of two decades and the only people defending the incompetence are suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

‘Oh no, Levy doesn’t call the shots, there’s a committee!’

Is it really worth it?

Money and status. Status and money. Levy is the football club chairman is fundamentally at odds with football.

Let that sink in.

‘But incrementally the progress is…’

Why are you reduced to having to e x p l a i n Β Spurs to me? Do Manchester United fans e x p l a i n Β their last season? No, they WON two trophies. Chelsea WON the league. Arsenal WON a cup.

Lots of teams win things. I can’t recall the last time a Premier League football club went bust, or nearly went bust trying to win stuff. But you clowns mention Leeds on the hour every hour!

Poch is the best thing since sliced bread. A miracle worker. And Levy still can’t help himself.

Is it really worth it?

      • caveman July 8, 2017 at 5:23 pm

        It seems as though Levy has the ‘goings on’ within the club sealed shut. Even the media are guessing. There’s no real news coming out.

        • Harry Hotspur July 8, 2017 at 5:58 pm

          It’s always like this. By real news you mean transfer leaks? The problem there is that the fucker keeps destabilising every bloody deal he goes near.

  • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ July 8, 2017 at 3:46 pm

    Poch has the cards
    No not for an unlimited cost player but can push Levy for a Kovacic 22 mil even buy back because it will take us through the next couple if years Stadium and all.A marquee player of sorts for a marquee stadium

    • gloster1861 July 8, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    Call me silly preferably both I would swap Dier for either Martial and Shaw.

      Never

      • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 2:55 pm

        Martial has obvious pace = chances for Kane and co and Poch could maximise Shaw’s potential.

    • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 2:55 pm

      Why would we take Martial and/or Shaw if, big if, Mourinho was willing to let them go to acquire Dier? If he’s willing to let us have them, he clearly doesn’t rate them, so why should we accept his cast-offs?

            22 mil but maybe a buy back clause

    • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 2:52 pm

      Not sure this will happen, special relationship or not. RM will only want rid of him if he’s rubbish. If he’s any good, they’ll keep him. If the jury’s out, they’ll sell him with a buy-back clause so they can have him back for next to nothing once Poch has improved him.

      • melcyid July 8, 2017 at 3:02 pm

        • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 3:06 pm

          Yes, I believe so. Therefore it is unlikely that RM will willingly part with him permanently. I don’t think Levy would be keen on the kind of deal where he pays to develop someone else’s player and then has to sell him back at a fixed price once RM want him again.

      • Sexy Beast July 8, 2017 at 3:06 pm

        So he can’t quite manage to get in a side that has won the champions league 3 out of the last 4 years and that makes him rubbish? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        πŸ€“

        • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 3:09 pm

          Please re-read my comment SB. I wasn’t implying that he was rubbish, only that RM would only be willing to sell him if he didn’t measure up.

          • Sexy Beast July 8, 2017 at 3:37 pm

            RM will only want rid of him if he’s rubbish.
            Your words, by definition then is Alexis Sanches rubbish as Barca sold him on?

            • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 5:21 pm

              No, I believe that Barca were in the enviable position of getting someone better than he was. But again, my comment was only about RM and Kovacic.

  • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ July 8, 2017 at 1:56 pm

    Would pick Mateo Kovacic over Meyer.
    Looks like he could have the presence of the type of midfielder that we havent seen at Tottenham forever.
    This position is the most important now.p

    • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ July 8, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      Kovacic is a very good player, I’d be amazed if we got him.

      • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ July 8, 2017 at 2:38 pm

        Its about Poch

        • Horndog July 8, 2017 at 2:51 pm

          It’s about Levy and Poch

          • Panama Paul July 8, 2017 at 2:58 pm

            Another kind of “special relationship”.

          • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ July 8, 2017 at 2:59 pm

            It’s about Levy.

            • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ July 8, 2017 at 3:44 pm

              Its 100% about Poch

  • AccringtonSpurs July 8, 2017 at 1:17 pm

    Brad Friedel was a bad goalkeeper for us. Signed him when he was 40.

  • Horndog July 8, 2017 at 12:54 pm

    Don’t you find it interesting that when you read about transfer headlines they always reference the manager wanting or doing the business, i.e.: Klopp, Conte, Mourinho, Guardiola, Koeman etc. Except Spurs, it is always all Levy.

      • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 12:58 pm

        It’s always been all Levy as he thrives on brinkmanship!

        • Horndog July 8, 2017 at 1:00 pm

          He thrives on his own ego.

          • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 1:02 pm

            Horny whats the alternative?

            • Horndog July 8, 2017 at 1:09 pm

              Work in conjunction with your manager (not saying he doesn’t), but let the manager be the face of the activity.

              • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 1:13 pm

                Seemingly a cautious approach is being adopted post Sissy farcical transfer?

                • Horndog July 8, 2017 at 1:15 pm

                  Unless we add some depth to our roster we could be in trouble. Trouble meaning competing for top spots in all competitions, let alone the league.

                  • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 1:16 pm

                • gloster1861 July 8, 2017 at 1:52 pm

                  Since Sissy was a typical Levy last minute botch job, we won’t know if Levy has changed till the window closes.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 8, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    Day 8….anything?……OK….the advantage to getting transfers in early is you can get them intergrated in the squad and they can have a good solid pre season in their new surroundings. I don’t run a football club and that makes sense to me. Wonder what that means to Daniel?

    • gloster1861 July 8, 2017 at 1:56 pm

      Daniel expects Poch to spin straw into gold. So no, the word preseason means nothing to him.

          • Sexy Beast July 8, 2017 at 12:50 pm

            To much CNN has turned you into a negative person Ron, his highlights reel was awesome!

            • ronwol196061 July 8, 2017 at 12:52 pm

              I agree his highlights were great,tough players,frives forward,nice passing….was mostly with his right though from those clips

              Whats negatove about that,that I didnt see too much of his left foot? Mybe you think Im a lefty but you would wouldnt you

              • David Dillenberg July 8, 2017 at 12:54 pm

                Ron highlights can be deceptive when like yourself I like the look of Vecino!

                • ronwol196061 July 8, 2017 at 12:55 pm

                  This guy is tougher and resilient..a different kind of player.Vecino is more smooth a player but this guy has a real edge to his game so I wouldnt discount him.

            • ronwol196061 July 8, 2017 at 12:54 pm

              and about Mackay…Mackay tackled and moved the ball up quickly and his passing was good too.

          • Sexy Beast July 8, 2017 at 12:51 pm

      His excuse is that he now has a manager who he believes can polish turds.

      A manager he stumbled across by accident who manages to finish 2nd with a wage and transfer spend that should see us in 6th.

      The depressing thing is that Levy doesn’t feel remotely lucky to have Poch at the club because the pig headed twat believes he’s masterminded everything when all he’s done is limit spending…

      • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 7, 2017 at 10:50 pm

        He really doesn’t deserve to keep hold of Pochettino, does he?

        If Poch suddenly quit, it would be a disaster on a scale Levy can’t comprehend, whilst he gazes at artists impressions of the Cheese Room and decides what fittings to have in the executive rest rooms. He’s such a twat.

    Get Siggy back to compete with Eriksen.
    Tell City to do one, Walker is staying another year.
    Backup striker is the mystery for me, King may be the answer, but I’m desperate enough that I’d even take Chicarito at this point, just need someone that’s a proven PL goal scorer, works hard, and has a good attitude knowing his place will be as second choice.

But the only thing that can fuck a asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is they fuck too much or fuck when it isn’t appropriate. And it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves. Because pussies are a inch and half away from assholes. I don’t know much about this crazy crazy world, but I do know this. If you don’t let us fuck this asshole we’re going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shit.

          It may be from a fictional film but makes total sense. It’s just my opinion.

          I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone – if possible – Jew, Gentile – black man – white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.

          Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost….

          The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.

          To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..

          Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

          In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: β€œthe Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power – the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.

          Then – in the name of democracy – let us use that power – let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world – a decent world that will give men a chance to work – that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!

          Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world – to do away with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

    I heard that the Willian deal fell through cause Levy had the player and his agent at the training ground for hours,and wouldnt see them (probably waiting for. the last minute screwing down on fee).We all know what happened, he went to chelski and has been one of their better players. He isn’t interested in top players cause they cost money.That is a true story.
    Don’t forget that enic are an investment company and Investment only when they can get value for money, whether in property or footballers.Levy is good in property development and not very good on the player part of the business.
    This season will either unite fans if successful or will divide us if we screw up cause of lack of signings.

    we need a game changer like Bale and a worldclass deadly attacking midfielder/hurricane winger, thats it. Sell
    Walker,Sissiko and Wimmer and maybee one more and we have the funds for that, Look every big company have shareholders, who have something to say, at annual meetings, I see mostly us supporters as a kind of investors/shareholders , who spend money in go to the matches and buy merchandise, we should have a word, to say, give Levy a open letter and recommand what he need, instead of looking at yachts in Bahamas he should listen to us. I have been Spurs supporter for more than 45 years, and never seen us so near the big thing. Best defence, and most goals scored, the hat of for that, but we just need that little extra, so we can win big things πŸ™‚

    The transfer table being moved into high stakes was instigated by Levy initially (Bale), now he can’t believe the prices being bandied about. Like the tories having the audacity to complain about privatisation.

    • Freund or Foe July 7, 2017 at 3:01 pm

      Wow.

  • PhilBealOG July 7, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    Spot on HH. Levy is penny wise, pound foolish. Waiting until the last minute for a bargain buy doesn’t work. By the time he opens his wallet the shelves are bare. I firmly believe that if we had bought Morgan Schneiderlin from the Saints we would have made it to the Championship that season but Levy waited until Southampton fans called foul on more transfers out and it was too late. If we could have had Lemar but missed out due to his farting around we could be facing Thursday night football at the end of next season too. How does it makes sense to lose out on the Championship for the sake of relatively small savings on transfer fees? Not only that but the reputation for reneging on deals with both clubs and players further reduces the chances of top talent coming our way. Let the Spurs Community dimwits go boil their heads – there is no smoke without fire and there’s plenty of smoke (besides that which they blow up their own backsides).

        It’s an ironic “every year there’s some team that’ll we’ll do well to finish above” comment.

        Two years ago it was Stoke. Last year it was West Ham.

        This year it looks like it’s going to be Everton.

        Do you honestly think I don’t think we’ll finish above Everton?

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 7, 2017 at 2:44 pm

          • UnkleTaff July 7, 2017 at 3:18 pm

            I think it’s fair to say that we won’t do as well at Wembley next year as we did at the Lane last, but to suggest that our results might slip enough so as to allow the likes of Everton to finish above us is arrant nonsense in my view.

            Everton seem to be making the classic mistake of buying too many players (whilst presumably allowing a number of players to leave to make way for them). As a strategy it is fundamentally flawed. I think they’ll struggle to integrate them all and *Taff prediction alert* I think they’ll finish the season without Koeman in charge.

              • Harry Hotspur July 7, 2017 at 1:22 pm

                The ‘Magnificent 7’ fiasco summed up Levy’s bookkeeping mentality. He went out and balanced the books. Football doesn’t work like that.

  • Camus July 7, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    Matt Law at the Telegraph is saying that “talks have continued in the background between Woodward and Levy” in respect of Dier.

    So… We haven’t told them where to go. Talks are ongoing.

    He also says we’ve bid for Mawson and that Walker is expected to join City (with us currently failing dismally in securing a replacement.)

    • Daniel Primus July 7, 2017 at 1:10 pm

      i’d be amazed if two players that both signed long term contracts last year September around the same time both decided to leave this summer!

      • MysteriousStranger July 7, 2017 at 2:20 pm

        I’m amazed you seem to think signing contract extensions mean players are not open to leaving, and that the club getting the players to sign them isn’t open to selling them.

        That’s not what contracts are about, or for.

        • Daniel Primus July 7, 2017 at 3:28 pm

          Didn’t say it was impossible, just would be amazed if that did happen. walker maybe but not dier a as well – i think that sends out the wrong message in regards to our so called philosophy – who’s next ali, kane, eriksen toby?

          • MysteriousStranger July 7, 2017 at 4:47 pm

            For a long time under Levy the club’s philosophy has exactly been to tie up players to contracts so they can’t fuck off on a free, just as selling selected players for a large profit has also been a cornerstone of his philosophy. See Carrick, Keane, Berba, ModriΔ‡, Bale.

    • Freund or Foe July 7, 2017 at 1:13 pm

      Talks eh?

      Can we have Eric please, Mr Levy?

      No.

      Pretty please?

      No.

      With cherries on top?

      Are they Morello cherries?

      Yes.

      Then definitely no.

      • Camus July 7, 2017 at 1:15 pm

        I’m not so sure. Why would you chinwag with Woodward for weeks if there’s nothing doing? (unless he is serving up some rather fine wine.)

        • Freund or Foe July 7, 2017 at 1:20 pm

          That depends on if he is actually chinwagging with Woodward. And if he is chinwagging with Woodward, are they chinwagging about Dier. I`d very much imagine that any chinwagging between the two wouldn`t be in the company of Matt Law.

        • Panama Paul July 7, 2017 at 3:14 pm

          Not so much chin wagging, as tea bagging methinks.

          Sporadically. But my point being we are not in uncharted waters.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 7, 2017 at 12:55 pm

    I see a club hanging by a thread, not in an orient or northampton sense but in the sense that poch will get fed up with it and we will lose him, we are in a position now with the big stadium that maintaining success, top 4 etc is now a must. Its heaped a never before seen pressure on the club. If poch does get sick of it or not even, he is still going to be sort after, then our little miracle worker, as you say, won’t be the only one to go, we are left in a position of only one way to go. This could be avoided of course, with matters ON the pitch being given priority. But they ain’t. Most leap to Levy’s defence while I could slag off redknapp, Sherwood, sugar and be left to it. Them 3 ‘s impact on the club will be nothing compared with the currant owners. Time will tell what that impact will be. For me the damage is done with the tearing down of our home. That’s just the beggining.

We finished 2nd and I should be super-excited about that, and about the league and CL campaigns to come. But I’m struggling to stay interested. We won’t win the league at Wembley. We will do nothing in the CL so why bother? The stadium is not for me, a Β£60-90 replica shirt is not for me. What is the point of it all? Where are we going? The whole football world is bonkers – the transfer fees and wages are going sky-high. It’s obscene. Yet I understand why kids are glory-supporters and choose a team that wins trophies all the time.

    The $64,000 question is where Poch and Levys relationship is in all of this.

    What is acceptable to Poch?

    Nobody really knows those answers and until we know (and we wont until something happens) they are either in cahoots or Levy is playing russian roulette in a crazy way. If Levy loses Poch.He loses the whole plot.along with 75% of the fan base,his best players and he is fucked.

    I cant believe that he is that stupid.

    But I dont know,maybe he is

    • Daniel Primus July 7, 2017 at 12:16 pm

      very true we will not know for sure whats going on with poch and levy and only pray all is good behind the scene !but one thing does seem obvious is that we struggle to attract quality players IMO

      • ronwol196061 July 7, 2017 at 12:17 pm

        We dont struggle to attract quality players we just need to find them when they are in their mothers woombs

      • GetALife July 7, 2017 at 12:32 pm

        Really? I look at our squad and the though that “we struggle to attract quality players” doesn’t occur to me.

        Are we living in reality here are we just letting the pessimists run the show. Can help but feel if other clubs where in our position you’d be hard pushed to find this much baseless negativity.

    I’d wager our spend will end up being between Β£80-100m

    I can see Β£80m coming in for Walker, Janssen, Sissoko & Wimmer.

    We need to better those 4 with what we buy, in Janseen and Sissoko’s and to a lesser extent Wimmer’s cases that won’t be hard.

    When he’s eventually got Lanela will be like a new addition as well. I see no reason at all to be panicking right now.

  • Dan Bramley July 7, 2017 at 12:03 pm

    Really in two minds about this. On the one hand, I agree that for just one window I wish Levy would just get the players the manager wants and quickly. We end up having a squad that doesn’t fully gel together until mid September with the way Levy does business.

    On the other hand, I think we need to take a look at where we have come from (in terms of premier league years), as Spurs fans we seem to be permanently unhappy. Last season we finished 3rd in a two horse race and the moans were “we always bottle it” and “why can’t we. We finish above arsenal” this year we finish second. I don’t think anyone can accuse us of bottling it, we ran a frankly excellent (pains me to say it) Chelsea team very close (Kante recently said his hardest opponents last season was Tottenham and in particular dembele and wanyama) and we finish above arsenal and the moans are “we should have won something” and “playing at Wembley next year” can we just be happy for 5 minutes about what we’ve achieved? I’m 29, when I first started going to the lane I was watching an incredibly average team who were lucky to finish 16th every year.

    I’m ecstatic at how far we have come. I’m not an idiot I know things at the club need to change and I am certainly not a Levy sympathiser, but I am proud of how we have gone about our natural progression. I just wish we could properly back poch and give him the players he wants.

    I don’t want to go to Wembley next year, but will I? Yes. Will I moan about it? No. Regardless of what happens next season will I still go to every game? Yes. Because I love the club and so do all of you.

    6 weeks to go.

    • GetALife July 7, 2017 at 12:16 pm

      Well put. We have short memories it seems. When I hear a Levy hater say we haven’t progressed over the last 16 years I find it hard to continue to listen to them. That is so demonstrably untrue it beggars belief that anyone can hold that view, let alone whole sections of Spurs fans.

      • Harry Hotspur July 7, 2017 at 12:21 pm

        Badly put.

        Try making an actual coherent point.

        One trophy in 17 years – more managers than I have hairs on my head.

        Discuss. And If you condescend to discuss, please focus specifically on the fucking football, and not the glacial improvement of an investment portfolio.

        As for ‘short memories’ you could have murdered someone, done your time and been out in 17 years. Taken a life in broad daylight and be a free man.

        • Dan Bramley July 7, 2017 at 12:59 pm

          I’m not saying there aren’t problems, the constant change of managers and personnel was a huge issue for us but you can’t ignore steady league progress leading to consistent UEFA (now europa league) and champions league qualification. There is a lack of silverware, nobody disagrees with that, but we aren’t the only club that haven’t won something.

          Do we honestly think that (for example) Everton supporters are consistently bitching about their seasons despite not winning anything for years? would you trade CL qualification for the league cup?

    • Daniel Primus July 7, 2017 at 12:22 pm

      well said, i love the club – but just because i love something does it mean i ignore it’s illness and watch it suffer.

    Thanks to Harrys expertise in fantasy marketing, he has kicked up the ante and brought us to 26.I mean he even got the mercurial Spurstacus into the act too in a protracted negotiation where Spurstacus like Nkoudoo was holed up in a hotel (if you can call it that) for months until he finally signed.

    “some bald bloke that has never demonstrated any talent in advancing Spurs the football club”

    Wrong again dumb ass. If you honestly cannot see the progress Spurs have made under Levy they you should throw your computer in the bin, your opinion and your blog are less than worthless.

    “Is it really worth the everlasting headache of inventing scenarios whereby I’m wrong?”

    When we were with Harry you said we would never regularly break top 4 with Levy at the helm. Yet we finished 3rd last season and 2nd this season. Now you have moved the goal posts to say we will never win anything… but if we win a cup next season you’ll find something else… You said that we’d never see a new stadium under Levy, yet not that it is halfway built you’ve only found negatives… Archway steel are getting screwed, the local residents might have to live in a free house somewhere else, boo fucking hoo. You are the one who is constantly inventing scenarios to try and mold reality to your preconceived notions, other people are just putting you straight on you BS. Do you think people form their opinions to try prove you wrong, what a weird little egomaniac you must be.

    “The Goat hears that the failure to sign these players is down to one man”

    The GOAT is not real. This is not inside information. This is you inventing ITK’s to essentially agree with yourself and make you arguments appear to be based in more that your own delusions. And to think you have the gall to insult Levy for using spin when you invent imaginary friends to agree with you. You don’t fool anybody mate, you’re not a journalist, you don’t have sources, you don’t have a track record… actually I’m being harsh on that one, you do have a have a fairly consistent record of being proven wrong and carrying on regardless.

    • Freund or Foe July 7, 2017 at 12:01 pm

      • Me July 7, 2017 at 12:01 pm

      we bid Β£28m with add ons, but apparently Jeremy Peace was a god for ruining his career and costing his club over Β£15m.

  • PochJob July 7, 2017 at 11:42 am

    Batshuayi went to Chelsea for Β£130k a week, no sane person now with the benefit of hindsight to aid them too, would think this would have been a good deal? Also for someone who keeps everything very much under the radar, he manages to allow a heck a lot of detail out of the bag, even thoughts! pinch of salt springs to mind.

    • Me July 7, 2017 at 11:49 am

      There’s a lot of sub quality players being bought and being paid insane money, Batshuayi is just one of a bunch. The Pool deal for Salah is just ridiculous, there is some merit in being patient as long as we do t end up panicking like we appear to have with Sissoko last year.

      Also I find a deal agreed with Everton for Barkley at Β£20m hard to believe, if that was really the case then a host of clubs would pay that money for a still relatively young and fairly talented English player.

  • JIM July 7, 2017 at 11:41 am

    You wonder whether Levy’s failure to bring in players isn’t a case of incompetence, but a deliberate method of avoiding spending money. To go through the the motions and then to throw a spanner in the works, when you had no real intention to buy at all.

    • Panama Paul July 7, 2017 at 11:44 am

      “go through the motions” without any output let alone a spanner. Levy’s arse must be so tight that nothing gets out or it’s terminally constipated.

    The Goat’s probably got a prolapsed rectum after dropping that prodigious load. Still stinks to high heaven but, sadly, is entirely plausible. The only other certainty is the THFC “cash cow” is going to get milked like there’s no tomorrow this up-coming season. Levy’d.

  • Me July 7, 2017 at 11:38 am

    We hear the same from the GOAT every summer but the fact is we have been steadily improving with one or two decent size jumps for a pretty fair stretch now.

    We don’t have the budget of a Man U and thankfully we don’t have a vile creature like Abramovich at the club. The rights and wrongs of Levy’s methods are fairly debated but what we can say is that Poch likely has the most valuable first 11 in the PL at his disposal right now.

    It’s quality depth that we need, it’s true that we’ve largely gambled on that and lost but I’m confident that we will improve again this Summer. Poch seems to allude to similar thoughts when he has spoken about depth to compete in more competitions.

    The biggest barrier this year will be having to play in that crap hole not our personnel. I’m more angered that we didn’t go to MK Dons for a year than what we are currently doing in the market as reinforcements will arrive, whilst we are stuck with playing in the soulless bowl for the next 10 months.

    • gloster1861 July 7, 2017 at 11:48 am

      Kane was free.
      Winks was free.
      Dele was 5 million and a gift courtesy of David Pleat’s advice.
      Dier was 4 million.
      Wanayama came because of Poch and in all likelihood so did Toby.
      Rose has improved dramatically because of Poch.

      • Me July 7, 2017 at 11:53 am

        Your point?

        Lloris was 10
        Toby 12
        Eriksen 11
        Verts 15

        All outstanding deals, the truth is that like everybody else we will win some lose some, Soldado, Janssen & Sissoko are examples of expensive losses.

        But whatever the merits of the method we have accumulated arguably the strongest and most valuable starting 11 in the PL.

        We have failed miserably in backing that up, that’s what we need to improve.

        • Daniel Primus July 7, 2017 at 12:03 pm

          I get your point mate, however the overall issue is while we had a good season and are improving we have not won Nothing! to win the PL which is what we are all dreaming of you need that special type quality signing, name me a team bar Leicester city that won the PL without one of those type players.

          why have we not gone in and given the money for Lamar?
          why would we allow arsenal the freedom to get marhrez without a fight?

    Apologies for such blatant negativity.

  • caveman July 7, 2017 at 11:32 am

    Spurs ought to have already done some business in order to get new players a pre-season. The fact we are in 4 competitions and apparently going for silverware this season we need some decent squad players. Gylfi, Barkley, a defender and replacements for any sold stock. Get your finger out Levy.

    • Me July 7, 2017 at 11:43 am

      The players that we want woukd t be in yet for pre-season anyway, they will still be on holiday for a week or 2 after international duty.

      It’s early stages, is there reason to panic?

      Lukaku is terrible business at that money, Lindeloff is highly unproven at a decent level and Salah at 32m is laughable. I wouldn’t worry too much as some of our competition who are making moves aren’t making particularly frightening ones.

      • Dan Bramley July 7, 2017 at 11:51 am
