The Nicolas Gaitan Rumour

The Nicolas Gaitan Rumour

Football transfer rumours not only don’t sleep, they don’t brush their teeth or tend to flush the toilet behind them.

Last summer Atletico Madrid signed midfielder Nicolas Gaitan from Benfica for about £20million.

Nicolas Gaitan is 28.

AS in Spain have a fed multiple English media outlets the tale that Spurs are interested in loaning this guy.

The only credible reason I can determine for us loaning or otherwise getting this guy onto the premises would be to have someone to share his ‘Just For Men’ with.

If you have a credible reason, do please share it with the rest of the class.

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

  • Syd January 12, 2017 at 4:57 am

    Nope H, agree with youo totally. From angles, there is no point to this loan or signing

  • East Stand January 12, 2017 at 12:29 am

    I see Chavcheatscum have planning approved for a 60k stadium on their current site.

    I’m pleased we are keeping up with the Jones’ wit capacity but let’s face it, that’s all we are doing.

    Manure 75k
    Woowich 60k
    Spams 57k
    Citeh 55k
    Scousers 54K (with plans to expand further)

    So 61k is pretty respectable and a huge jump from what we have currently but lets not get carried away with the idea that just because we have all these extra plastic bum rests, we’ll be competing with Real Madrid and Barca for anything.

    After over 15 years ENIC are making sure we are keeping up with the likes of Citeh, Scouse, Woolwich and the Spammers and are still a full 15k down on the Theatre of Wet Dreams.

    Building the stadium is good don’t get me wrong but Woolwich have had their crap hole for 10 years and their trophy count has decreased since they left Library. Food for thought.

    Don’t believe the hype…

      Thierry Henry is not the brick we thought he was

    • Gloster1861 January 12, 2017 at 12:57 am

      Ah, but do they have a retractable pitch? Endless entertainment to be had watching it to in and out, or up and down , or whatever. Worth the entrance fee alone.

      That’s why I wondered if the new stadium was based on Marineville in Stingray?

    It’s a geoduck, a large salt water clam. Just so you know.

    I don’t know what worse; the pic or the description.

  • Spurstacus 💋 January 12, 2017 at 12:07 am

    We won’t sign anyone for the first team in January, probable that a few could leave either on loan or permanent. Tom Carrol surely.

    At last, the penny’s dropped for someone. Now p’raps we can move on to more interesting things.

    • East Stand January 12, 2017 at 12:13 am

      That’s some worrying cleavage Spurts!!

      • Spurstacus 💋 January 12, 2017 at 12:20 am

        Indeed it is.

  • Spursy January 11, 2017 at 11:53 pm

    Really looking forward to Saturday’s match against the Baggies. Will be a test.

    I’m sure Delboy will remember his fisticuffs from last time. Would sure love a calm 2-0 demolition. Wouldn’t that be just the ticket? We’d cruise up into 2nd. Lovely jubbly.

    • Hartley January 12, 2017 at 12:02 am

      I think we’ll get seven.

      • Spursy January 12, 2017 at 12:18 am

        That would be heaven.

        • East Stand January 12, 2017 at 12:31 am

        Very large ones.

      Yeah, I was wondering if that is how things might go.

      • East Stand January 12, 2017 at 12:34 am

        WE NEED A STRIKER!! SIGN ANYONE!! STURRIDGE FOR 40K, ANYTHING!! ANYTHING BUT LOGIC PLEASE!!

  • SpurAndy January 11, 2017 at 11:31 pm

    Here’s a funny stat I’ve just heard. Klopp has less points than Van Gaal did after his first 50 matches.

    • Hartley January 11, 2017 at 11:34 pm

      In your face Klopp.

    • Spursy January 11, 2017 at 11:48 pm

  • caveman January 11, 2017 at 10:51 pm

    Does anyone know who replaced the two Spurs coaches ‘Nigel Gibbs and Karl Halabi’ who jumped ship last week to work for Paul Clement at Swansea?

    • Caspurs♿️ January 11, 2017 at 11:31 pm

      Or, have they been replaced yet?

    • SpurAndy January 11, 2017 at 11:32 pm

      Read in the Standard that Mitchell is looking for a Managers job next. Maybe that’s why he left?

      • Hartley January 11, 2017 at 11:33 pm

        Walford United?

        • Real Fan? January 11, 2017 at 11:42 pm

          Peachy.

      • MysteriousStranger January 11, 2017 at 11:46 pm

        He hasn’t left yet has he? I thought we were holding him against his will. Maybe that’s why he’s looking for a managerial role.

      • Spurstacus 💋 January 12, 2017 at 12:09 am

        Aldi have a fairly well respected manager training program.

        • MysteriousStranger January 12, 2017 at 12:17 am

          I used to work with a guy who subsequently went on to manage an Aldi, or a Netto – one or the other. Anyway, one weekend he emptied the safe and jumped on a plane, left the country. And yes, he was a bit of a twat.

          • Real Fan? January 12, 2017 at 3:50 am

            I hear the train to Liverpool is almost as quick these days.

    The Bindipper game is actually a great watch – just tuned in and its very open. God i hate the bindippers. Come on u Saints!

  • Hartley January 11, 2017 at 10:07 pm

    Sounds like an arseanal player.

  • Razspur January 11, 2017 at 9:38 pm

    When our lads put a game together we are better than any team in the PL, it is an utter tapestry we are not still in the Champions League, i accept we had injuries and suspensions but the strategy was abismal, don’t even mention playing at Wembley as an excuse, players should rise to the occasion, if they can’t they are of no use to Tottenham. Now we face Thurs/Sun games again and i have to blame Poch, if we are challenging for the PL Title by the time the Gent game comes around we must play the kids and go for gold in the PL end of.

    • LingLongMan 🚯 January 11, 2017 at 9:41 pm

      A couple of changes to the Villa team would do it for the Ropey.

      • Caspurs♿️ January 11, 2017 at 9:44 pm

        Genius, getting Villa to play our Ropey games is a masterstroke!

        • LingLongMan 🚯 January 11, 2017 at 9:47 pm

          Well yes that might work too.🤡

    • melcyid January 11, 2017 at 9:50 pm

      its not a tapestry or even a travesty we were very much pooh in the games and dint deserve to progress.

      • Razspur January 11, 2017 at 9:58 pm

        It is a travesty for the fans spending a Season to get into the bloody competition then royally fecking it up.

        • melcyid January 11, 2017 at 9:59 pm

          that is a travesty

    • Ronwol196061 January 11, 2017 at 9:59 pm

      What is there a manager for?????

      He manages their emotions puts it back to them in a positive package and builds confidence.
      Poch is more about them doing it for him. (and themselves and us)

      So we went through the time when we were actually playing incompetent footie.
      Like where was Wald…. Er I mean Eriksen and Kane????

      Managers can instill faith

      • Razspur January 11, 2017 at 10:01 pm

        Faith or Filth, is that a Rongspell ?

  • Razspur January 11, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    Klopp thought he was bringing his boys for a walk in the park, a Kebab and an evening in the Southampton fleshpots, that’s the walk in the park well and truely fecked, enjoy the rest of your evening.

    • melcyid January 11, 2017 at 9:47 pm

      the dippers usually get a result at the end of these type of games.

      • Razspur January 11, 2017 at 9:50 pm

        They will need Coutinho’s genius to make inroads, as it’s 2 legs they will always fancy their chances in any case.
        Melc are you getting fine weather now, snow should be rolling in here over the next 24 hrs.

  • BrizzleSpur January 11, 2017 at 9:21 pm

    Lies sell papers. Agents flirt with clubs. Players want the maximum deals. Sponsors want names mentioned. There is every reason to lie and flirt with the media and honesty would get them nowhere.

  • MarkFalco January 11, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    I wish we’d just loaned Vinnie, at least the spammers had the sense not to buy Zaza.

  • MarkFalco January 11, 2017 at 7:53 pm

    Argentine aged 28, sounds to me like some lazy journo putting 2+2 and getting 400. Presumably the fact that he and our manager share the same country is enough for some idiot to make the connection. If he’d been a true playmaker or a striker then it might have made more sense.

  • AccringtonSpurs January 11, 2017 at 7:51 pm

    Who was the last player we brought in on loan?

    Think it was Adebayor.

    • AccringtonSpurs January 11, 2017 at 7:51 pm

      we generally don’t do loans…

    • MarkFalco January 11, 2017 at 7:54 pm

      The loan wasn’t the problem, it was the fact that we bought him that led to us being stitched up.

    • MarkFalco January 11, 2017 at 7:56 pm

      Adebayor, the giant turd that refused to be flushed…

  • MarkFalco January 11, 2017 at 7:46 pm

    Tis the season of whacko rumours…..
    If we do loan somebody can I request that it be somebody that’s actually of some use to us, only a small point I know, but it would be nice.

  • Sid Trotter January 11, 2017 at 7:35 pm

    Gaitan is someone I have never heard of. Hope it stays that way.

    If we were to buy someone it should be that Dele Alli or Tubby Overweight defender. If we have them already we should clone them and sell them on

    And consider too what Swansea would be getting in return: a player who is the natural successor to Xavi were he to play for Barcelona, and one who the Catalan giants should’ve snapped up as a replacement for Ivan Rakitic. Tom Carroll is an international treasure, and Swansea is getting the deal of a lifetime. Trust me.
    This is not a done deal, of course, but Wee Tommy’s departure is looking more and more likely. When the time comes, I shall rend my garments and compose his farewell post through a veil of my own tears.
