But You Said The Medical Was Done
By Harry Hotspur -

There’s a good in-depth piece on the mechanics of a modern football medical from FourFourTwo some might wish to read.

In 2019, it’s a bit more thorough than ‘look to your side and cough’, followed by having your knee tapped with one of those little toffee hammers.

“There’s no standard medical as such – every club has its own way of doing things. Usually a player being transferred to a club will undergo a two-day medical”

Dave Fevre Football Medical Association

Anyone believing that Tanguy NDombele’s visit to Hotspur Way last week was purely to be wowed by bricks and mortar must have the undeveloped brain of an 11-year-old.

After all, the stadium and Hotspur Way didn’t influence Kyle Walker or Danny Rose very much, did they?

The medical on Tuesday is hopefully the end of it, but certainly wasn’t all of it.

    if you read news accumulator sites, like newsnow for example, to find the latest news from any source in world on Spurs then you will both get incredibly angry and equally annoyed at football.london as I believe the reason they re-post the same article with a new sentence is that it brings them to the top of these lists. visitors = GBP – surprised Levy hasn’t clued on to this for the official website.

    After two transfer windows of nothing. Previous transfer windows of complete dross. I find myself totally de-sensitised to comings and going’s at THFC.

    My level of excitement is underwhelmed at best …..

    Oh well ?

    Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack?
    Its all worn off now. I don’t even want the player…..I read he got 1 goal last season, from midfield.?.. In Ligue 1? That’s gotta be wrong….that is poor. Wouldn’t go through this parafanalia for Pele.

    Yeah, I must have not noticed it in the past. It doesn’t help that it takes such a long time for us to get a transfer over the line. I really hope this is the last time we have to deal with Lyon for a while, their chairman might even be more of a pain in the arse than ours.

    Football London are pumping out a Tottenham transfer story every half an hour or so, most of it being being exactly the same as the previous story and usually about Ndombele, in an endless pursuit of clicks. I like Alasdair Gold but the site but the site is making itself look utterly idiotic. Gold doesn’t seem like that sort of person, I wonder if he is embarrassed?

    Its these constant reports of completions that are irksome. Surely they cant keep reporting the same falsehoods over and over about completed medicals and agreed fees?? Well yes they can….

    No surprise, nothing is ever easy with Levy. He’s more than likely waiting for the cheque to clear on Eriksen before he send the jars of 1’s n 2’s over to Lyon.

  14. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? says:

    A 2 day medical……that’s gone on for a fortnight.
