Spurs have supposedly been scouting Leon Goretzka however the Mirror say that German sources have ‘confirmed’ that he remains keen on a switch to either Barcelona or Bayern Munich.

Quite how emphatic this conformation of unnamed sources is, is anyone’s guess. The 22 year old Shalke04 ‘product’ has been at the Veltins Arena since 2013.

Hunch: Spurs are perceived as being on the up and this kid fits the profile. Marriage of convenience for the Mirror?

Number two is West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini.

The 24 year old is Argentinian, which ticks one box. The fact that the boy has Premier League experience ticks another. Lanzini first joined West Ham in July 2014 for £9.4million deal that reportedly pays him £35,000 per week.

Hunch: The cynic in me cannot help but believe that Lanzini was Scottish, opposed to South American then the ‘Poch is a great fan of…’ line wouldn’t exist and so the rumour might not either.

    Putin has told Trump that he’s insulted that he’s been blamed for meddling in the USA election. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    He’s probably disgusted that the west also blames him for shooting down a passenger jet over Ukraine, fixing the world cup 2018 destination and the athlete druggies he sent to the Olympics. Give me strength.

    Hilarious, the journo can’t even string together proper English:

    They say the striker has told Mauricio Pochettino he wants to leave Tottenham should he decides to quit the north London club.

      At least we now know that if he wants to leave Spurs then he’ll probably leave Spurs.

    I’ll laugh if the brazil game finishes 0-0 also, none of our major key players, will Southgate have really learnt that much?

    • gloster1861 November 11, 2017 at 3:24 pm

      Has Southgate ever learnt anything? He’s a blank page. A non descript vanilla yes man who won’t embarrass the FA. While they search for a real manager.

      • McG⚽⚽ November 11, 2017 at 3:28 pm

        They won’t bring in a real manager, last one of those was Hoddle, even Sven was a bit of a yes man!

  • gloster1861 November 11, 2017 at 3:17 pm

    Harry Hotspur
    He died a week ago. Our thoughts are with his accountant at this difficult time.

    You are so naughty H!

    I could see Moyes going for Barkley.

    • McG⚽⚽ November 11, 2017 at 3:19 pm

      That’ll tempt him away from Spurs for sure..

      • gloster1861 November 11, 2017 at 3:21 pm

        I didn’t say Barkley would stupid enough to join him at Wet Spam. Just that Moyes will try.

    • UnkleTaff November 11, 2017 at 2:03 pm

      I watched him play for one of the youth teams once. He didn’t particularly impress on that occasion but I’ve read accounts that he’s doing okay.

      Still early days for him, though.

    To dream the impossible dream
    To fight the unbeatable foe
    To bear with unbearable sorrow
    And to run where
    the brave dare not go
    To right the unrightable wrong
    And to love pure and chaste from afar
    To try when your arms are too weary
    To reach the unreachable star
    This is my quest
    To follow that star
    No matter how hopeless
    No matter how far
    To fight for the right
    Without question or pause
    To be willing to march,
    march into hell
    For that heavenly cause
    And I know
    If I’ll only be true
    To this glorious quest
    That my heart
    Will lie peaceful and calm
    When I’m laid to my rest
    And the world will be
    better for this
    That one man, scorned
    and covered with scars,
    Still strove with his last
    ounce of courage
    To reach the unreachable,
    the unreachable,
    The unreachable star
    And I’ll always dream
    The impossible dream
    Yes, and I’ll reach
    The unreachable star

    The spammers would put 50mil on his head unless he’s ooc soon and he’s not worth that

  • ronwol196061 November 11, 2017 at 12:05 pm

    When Tottenham bought Greaves,even though we had just won the Double,I was totally stunned. This was total magic at the time. I saw his first game at the lane,we played Blackpool and he scored a hat trick including an amazing goal,mid air horizontal almost half volley. The signing was magic. For us to snatch Greaves from Milan was a brilliant move for Nicholson. It was something in the stratosphere.
    It was a lot of money at the time. We had paid $30,000 for Mackay in 1958 and this was 1961 and we set the record at more than 3 times that. The wages in 1959 I think were 20 quid per week and 4 quid for a win. Contrast that with today.
    How do you buy a player that Barca want?
    I believe that we are close to being a real contender (I dont agree with Taff they we are THAT close) but we dont need a lot. A fantastic CM would go a long way to really competing with the best along with a couple more squad players.
    There are too many times when we come against teams that we cant open up to say we are there. I think the CM position is key. And we need an all rounder.Tough in the tackle/good passer/Can shoot/Can take a game on.
    It would be worth it.
    New stadium. Team with the most potential in the world. One more step would be huge.
    Its out the Daniel. All you have to do is have some resolve to make us fitting for the stadium and be the best.

  • ronwol196061 November 11, 2017 at 11:39 am

    If invention is the mother of neccessity then I must say Harry is doing a good job of creating nothing where something was there before.

    Goretzka or Death!

    • ronwol196061 November 11, 2017 at 11:46 am

      The fact is Harry is doing well,being Bob Hope to the troops while there is no war going on. Keeping us warm. But soon,one the horizon there will be a war. Kind of. NLD is nearly here. Just a few more days. Is it a world championship fight or is pickings for the greatest team the world has ever seen??????

      Bring the Fuckers On!!!!!!

  • ronwol196061 November 11, 2017 at 11:35 am

    You go to a bar with Harry,you take a look at the bird across the room,she eyes you back and you think you’ve seen heaven. You are just ready to go over to her to make your play and Harry says ‘She has a wonky eye,buck teef and has a phoney pair’
    This can ruin a relationship.
    For all those I sold on Goretzka,I can send you your money back. I suggest you dont buy Lanzini he just might be another case of lasagna.

    Wants Champions League football
    Cheap to feed

  • Spiderneil November 11, 2017 at 10:59 am

    No thanks to Lanzini, he’s a lazy footballer with a bad attitude.

    • Harry Hotspur November 11, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Junk that wouldn’t step up to the required level.

  • Sid Trotter November 11, 2017 at 10:44 am

    Ah, there will be another 100 rumours like this before we buy someone for the reserves. What is happening with Barkley – is he still injured?

    • Harry Hotspur November 11, 2017 at 11:13 am

      He died a week ago. Our thoughts are with his accountant at this difficult time.

  • OrganicPaper November 11, 2017 at 10:39 am

    Like 99.9% of all transfer rumour I agree these two sounds like utter BS.
    Goretzka is a very good player but he will cost a lot more than I think DL would pay.
    I don’t think we will do a lot of business in Jan

    • Blackyiddo November 11, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      Personally I’d love him, he’d be a great addition and would be a potential replacement for Moussa.

      Also he’s out of contract in the summer, so no excuses on the transfer fee.

  • caveman November 11, 2017 at 10:38 am

    They’ll all be ringing Poch looking to get signed up to the best club in the Prem!

  • Matt November 11, 2017 at 10:34 am

    Hope we go for Barkley. When the bus parkers come we need someone who can beat a man. We do th have that. Barkley does.
