Football likes nothing better than endless updates and the way the game has gone, even a player with ‘a paltry’ 3 years left on his contract is fair game for transfer speculation.

Before we add to the mood music here, let’s introduce some actual facts. These will undoubtedly only serve to irritate those wishing to throw themselves headlong into hysteria.

Toby Aderwwiereld’s contract is good, or at least exists until 2020. People demanding to know what he’s planning to do, has some legitimacy. With less than a two year buffer, compensating Spurs for the remainder wouldn’t be prohibitive.

Gladys told us a few weeks ago that a new deal was to be announced.

Toby’s injury situation has subsequently dragged on.

The 28 year old who like all of us is another year older this year, started off with a hamstring injury which officially ran from 01/11/17 to 05/02/18, which in the old money is 3 months.

Since then we’ve had a couple of decidedly indifferent attempts at a return via the FA cup (where Toby played all 180 minutes).

Poch told SpursTV:

“Everyone is okay, although Toby didn’t finish the training session yesterday and we need to assess him tomorrow. Like I said before, after the process of a big injury he needs time to recover his form and of course we are going to help.

“We hope it’s not a big issue and that he can be available if not this weekend, for the next game.”

The Times ran the same day with the story that the new deal was being hampered by wage demands. The monies cited were an offered £110,000 per week versus a demanded £150,000.

So.

Was the ITK wrong? That’s plausible. ITK by its very nature no more than channel for what one hopes to be educated gossip. Was the piece in the Times spurious? Is Pochettino lying? The Bible has probably sold several billion copies and it’s wall to wall guano (wanna debate that then just tell me which page the dinosaurs are on). Life is hard and it seems you might not be able to trust anyone at all.

What’s more important than tea ladies, missing dinosaurs et al, is what the Bald Weirdo does next.

Conspiracy theories abound and Poch talking up the competency of other defenders is immediately interpreted and spin to cushion the blow.

All we’ve had from our great leader failure is the usual corporate speak ambiguity about not selling players we wish to keep. In other news, humans try not to contract terminal illnesses.

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has degenerated before our eyes under ENIC from being a football club that tried and occasionally won stuff, to being a soul harvesting device for people who remember fondly when it used to be a football club that tried and occasionally won stuff.

Worse yet, the fanbase is plagued with toxic little nerds who are either feigning delight over the business’ net spend record as some sort of demented defence mechanism – or are genuinely in need of psychiatric help.

Worser still, Spurs have taken on a debt the size of small planet in order to flog ‘Match Day Experiences’ to more people than they had previously ever dreamed of.

Any suspicions that the actual football will continue to take a back seat enhancing the revenue streams have already been confirmed. First teamer Kyle Walker quit and erstwhile first teamer Danny Rose has gone to seed.

If Spurs can’t retain the services of their very best players then the situation is much darker than the vagaries of online gossip and wanting to slip say 25mils of sodium-pentothal into Poch’s tea.

Clubs need their best footballers in order to win things and clubs that don’t win things cannot shower their players with market rate money and honours. Which is all they want.

Wanna debate that, then just ask Bonzo what motivated his departure from London to Manchester, was it the money, the honour of winning the Premier League or the flagship Build A Bear Workshop in the Trafford Centre? Maybe he’s a bad example.

Bottom line is that no matter who Levy sells next, the jaundiced fans will always be outweighed by those that will pretty much put up with pretty much anything.

I took a call this morning and was offered a corporate at Wembley and heard myself saying ‘sure, why not, I’ll look at the fixtures’. Put the phone down and asked myself, what that flip was I thinking? It would seem not one of us are immune to the wretched tractorbeam.

    If you had anything other than Cerebrospinal fluid on your mind you would know the dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the earth 60 million years before man appeared. There is no need to mention them in the Bible. The story of Genesis is not history but an attempt by early man to explain the omnipotence of God. Perhaps you should stick to football in your commentary.

    • melcyid February 24, 2018 at 9:52 pm

      I understand what you are saying but to me scientists seem to quote any figure they like and no one can prove or disprove their accuracy.are you sure it wasnt 59 million years ago or what about the age of the earth 100 million Or how many billion years ago.I do know that 10 yrs ago today we beat the chavs at wembley in the league cup final.

                    Eriksen can score,Moura can pass
                    Kane will get the benefit too

    And the Bible was first collated in Rome wasn’t it, copying the bits they needed from the Torah…..don’t even start me on the Koran…..

    Constantine took bits of all religions including pagan ones. He may have truly believed that Christianity gave him favour with God during battle, or like Voltaire he knew that religion was the way to control the masses so he sought to make sure he approved of the message. Either way it is as much a work of fiction than non fictional account of the time in which it was written

        We need Churches for Sanctuary when the Indians come-a-circling. Most non believers still pray for forgiveness in the dying seconds, just in case.

    LEVIATHEN is in the bible.. jesus boasts of gods magnificent creature to an army. indestructable, spears cannot pierce its thick skin, long alligator like teeth, standing at over 100 foot tall.. noone could kill it… leviathen sounds exactly like the t~rex…… the reason the word ‘dinosaur’ isnt in the bible, is because the word dinosaur was only made up 2 or 300 years ago. its a modern word. the bible was written long before the word dino was… the bible is the oldest most accurate library we have… LEVIATHEN was a T REX… either that or it must have been a dragon… or im a monkeys uncle… interestingly i cant recall monkeys in the bible.. maybe god only put in whats important…

  • Nick February 24, 2018 at 2:09 pm

    The truth is the football side of our club is only a money harvesting scheme.Any profit from players is a pat on the back from old joe,not the only billionaire to not bankroll a club but probably the only one that claims to be a “fan”How many weeks of Toby’s wage increase would sending llorente & sissoko off to the glue factory pay for ??

    • Limerick AL. February 24, 2018 at 2:14 pm

      Yes, Its true. I said this years ago so here goes, Do Not take THFC seriously with Enic , Levy at the helm. Sure , we have done extremely well the past 3 or 4 Seasons but this has been a massive Fluke, so when our decent players move on, at least we can look back at the Good Ole Days, like winning the Cup in 19 Fucking 91.

      • Limerick AL. February 24, 2018 at 2:15 pm

          Levy must be really dumb to build a stadium like that for 4 fans

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 24, 2018 at 2:00 pm

    Did you know? The word “Dinosaur” was created in the mid 18th century before a single fossil was ever found. No indegeneos peoples anywhere in the world discovered these fossils before the evolution renaissancists of the mid 18 the century. I believe in fairy’s. I believe in trophy’s.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:39 pm

      I think you mean no-one recognised them as dinosaur fossils before then. “These be bones of giants”.

  • Bruxie February 24, 2018 at 1:58 pm

    I hate Merson…

    He’s just come out with some figures which I haven’t yet come to terms with.

    Roughly speaking (as he does) he says that it will only cost Spurs £26m per year to up their first team to £150k per week.

    As I’ve said I haven’t analysed this.

    Toby is worth it.

    Buying for any new signing for less than £30m is Levy value…

    So if the coke sniffing git is correct (for once) isn’t the pay hike (for all who deserve it) a no brainer?

    • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:09 pm

      If they were all earning 100k per week he would be right, but they ain’t.

      • Bruxie February 24, 2018 at 2:16 pm

        So what is the annual cost?

        • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:22 pm

          Well, that depends on who you use as your source. Just checked three and Kanes’s salary ranges from 60k to 100k! I think only Lloris earns more than 100k and the average for the 11 “first teamers” (whoever they may be) is probably closer to 65k. Just increase those 11 to 150k would cost about 49 million.

          • Bruxie February 24, 2018 at 2:27 pm

            but not all would need to be on that much…just our prized assets…

            • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:36 pm

              Obviously. And what of the other “senior” squad members?

              • Bruxie February 24, 2018 at 2:39 pm

                Verts, HK, Rose?, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen, Lloris,

                The rest to move up in increments.

                Have I forgotten anyone?

                • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:46 pm

                  Tobes, Victor, Lamela, Son…

                  • Bruxie February 24, 2018 at 2:48 pm

                    Tobes obviously…the others perhaps less so.

                    • 61SpursNut🌰 February 24, 2018 at 2:50 pm

                      Just shows the subjective nature of the debate. Merson just subjects us to ill thought out drivel.

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 February 24, 2018 at 1:45 pm

    Speaking of Ronglish,that bastard UFP is pissing the league has been all season (though Cavey is doing well in 2nd)…and I have a theory…that bastard is about 9 hours ahead and is obviously getting his information early.
    He could share it with us and we could all cash in. He wont because he really wants to win tbe Ronglish.

  • Woody February 24, 2018 at 1:31 pm

    The Bible doesn’t mention dinosaurs because it’s not a book on taxonomy. It doesn’t mention pyramids either despite being written pretty close to them. The Oxford history of the world doesn’t mention them either because that’s not the point of the book.

    • Aussie in Switzerland February 24, 2018 at 1:38 pm

      So god must be real, just one god, not the thousands of other man made gods…..seems realistic

      So the bible mentions goats, cows, donkeys and many other splendid creatures yet omits the beasts that are the size of football stadiums.

      Righty ho.

    Big match experience,a marketers waffle phrase.look up the word leviathan,lt was used in the bible before the word dinosaur was invented as was the word gooner.

  • Sexy Beast February 24, 2018 at 1:23 pm

    Seems a no brainer to most of us, he is arguably the best right sided CB on the planet and he is our player, why let him go over paying him 50% more than Sissoko? ffs

  • Matt February 24, 2018 at 1:21 pm

    Only Real and Barca are immune Tom losing their top talent. That’s why De Gea will leave Utd some time, and Coutois Chelsea. I think your ITK was probably right, deal was close THFC thought done deal, Toby and agent now trying for more. He’s not worth it, he’s an excellent, injury prone 29 year old. Let him join Mourinho pensioners.

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? February 24, 2018 at 1:19 pm

    I’ve noticed since rumour vultures circle about Toby there’s been some justifications already, like I said would happen and if Kane went. Things like , Sanchez and Verts av been great…..we beat Utd and Arse….will Toby even fit back in?……things unthinkable a year ago. Toby is still vital and will be for years. 28 isn’t old for a centre half, he’ll accumulate more experience and will be someone we can hang our hat on. A captain. Look at the likes of Cannavaro and Maldini….Ramos etc. We don’t sell him. That’s it.

  • caveman February 24, 2018 at 1:03 pm

    If Spurs win something this season it will prove Levy right and we won’t be forced to improve. On the other hand………………………..!

    • Harry Hotspur February 24, 2018 at 1:14 pm

      If Spurs win anything ANY time I’ll be delighted.

      Anyone seeking too credit Levy with any success ANY time needs their head examined.

    • Sexy Beast February 24, 2018 at 1:20 pm

      If Spurs win something this season it will be in spite of Levy.
      When are we likely to find out exactly how much the club debt is (if ever)?

      • Harry Hotspur February 24, 2018 at 1:57 pm

        Very dependent upon how much Baldy can swindle out of a sponsor

  • caveman February 24, 2018 at 12:57 pm

    It all boils down to whether we’re a feeder club to the big boys and it sure looks as though we certainly are.

  • Blanchflower February 24, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    I had a friend who was a palaeontologist and she shared a flat with a hard core bible worshipper (BBC3 sitcom idea?). The issue of dinosaurs was flicked back at her with ‘God put those bones there to test us’.

      Not much of a test. Maybe a sealed time capsule imbedded in the rocks with the mathematical explanation of the theory of relativity. Although those that believe would say its there but we just haven’t found it I suppose.
