Welcome to Harry Hotspur. Look, it could be worse. You could be reading a Football London article, providing you with the absolute opposite of the very latest update on Giovani Lo Celso’s transfer.

Rewriting something every hour, on the hour does not a fresh, breaking, slant provide. Other circles of hell are available.

In fact, I heartedly suggest you get yourself stuck into a copy of Dante’s Inferno; then at least then you’re reading about the punishments of eternally suffering souls… other than your own.

Mariano Diaz is struggling to get game time at Los Blancos. The Sun have aggregated a piece from Spanish outlet AS, suggesting we’re in for the lad.

Aranda Cebrian, agent of the Real Madrid-owned striker, “dismantled” the market voice: “It is false. There is no meeting scheduled with Roma”

His agent took a moment out from his tub thumping to deny his client would be moving on either anonymously, or on the cheap.

This barely puts Spur in pole. In fact, I’m going to take a massive punt and tell you that The Star, The Express or HITC will (if they haven’t already) run a ‘Diaz + Cash For Eriksen’ piece in the next 24hrs.

    I read months ago , Guardian maybe that Spurs put the word out to agents that they were in the market for one marquee signing to grace the new stadium. Well we’ve got Tanguy, job done muchachos, that’s it, one killer, the rest all filler. We’ll fill the bench with cheap journey men. There won’t be any Lo Celso, Ceballos, etc etc, dream on, Sessegnon, not a chance this summer at £20million when he’s out of contact next summer, do you think Daniel came up the Thames in a bubble? Still these poor saps lap up this BS linking us with anyone who can walk and chewgum. I hear we are in for Megan Rapinoe though.

    hey, this article was posted at 8AM in the morning and you haven’t updated us 3 times since then, with the latest breaking news on the Diaz transfer. This site is rubbish.

    At least all this chatter about potentially incoming midfielders has put the wind up wonder boy Alli. It is one reason his publicity machine kicked into high gear last week with those pictures of him on a gym treadmill. He wants the world to know that he a serious athlete and not just a narcissistic piss artist. Unfortunately most of us would prefer to see him training and practicing on a football pitch rather than sharing exercise equipment with bored housewives and aging executives.

      A concerted amount of damage limitation has been going on.

  • Jonny77 July 10, 2019 at 11:59 am

    You’re so right about the amount of trash on football london. It was promising for a while. Now it’s annoying.

    We still need a few more signings though to make the squad deep enough.

  • eddie July 10, 2019 at 11:49 am

    If Poch accepts this ridiculous state of affairs for another season and has to flog to death the paper thin squad again he will go down in my estimation.
    He should walk the way he is being treated and he would go with my understanding and blessing.Thanks for working miracles.

    Anyone who thinks THFC can’t play second fiddle ….playing at Wembley for an extra season to allow NFL facilities to be built, what must the players think?, having one signing in 3 windows cos all investment has gone into building an NFL/events bowl……its already happening.

  • eddie July 10, 2019 at 11:26 am

    It seems the little bald cunt had everyone going for a while.Leopards do change their spots,really.
    Well,after the initial build up of expectation with the ENIC PR machine going into overdrive linking us with a number of suitable recruitments,it seems we are back to reality.N’Dombele signed 6 months too late to replace the ailing Moose just to tread water.He must be he must be seeing the emperor in his true light now.We really tried honest.SNAFU.
    ENIC’s ambition for THFC is fuck all it’s become a sideshow and will have no investment to speak of because the enormous has to be serviced.
    It’s like pulling that gorgeous bird in Thailand only to find she’s got a bigger cock than you.
    PS.Andrew the rant is fully understandable.

  • Andrew July 10, 2019 at 11:17 am

    Why is it that I want Eriksson out of our club ,he only did enough to help keep us in top four. Most of the other players were below their best as well,but for Eriksson to say he wants out ,he can piss off.
    I always loved the guy but it’s like finding out your girlfriend fancied someone else and that’s why the sex wasn’t good anymore.
    I feel cheated
    Sorry about rant.

  • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? July 10, 2019 at 10:35 am

    Just read a report claiming that Llorente may stay now, but take a wage cut. Hence, I agree Harry, lots of people making up lots of stories. I will take my usual stance, photo with a shirt, or official club announcement.. Until then !!!!!!!!!!

    Llorente will stay cos Levy ain’t getting a striker. Its another season of blagging the top 4 in order for ENIC to make their targets. Ex football club.

  • Marbella Spur July 10, 2019 at 10:21 am

    Agree completely with the article below. All my optimism over our transfer targets has evaporated. Sky have said that there have been no bids for CE and any new signings will rest on this outcome, so back to reality. On the matter of Football.London, I wonder why they bother to regurgitate the same endlessly repetitive twaddle all day long.

  • Elevenstonedidiots July 10, 2019 at 10:14 am

    HITC are London Football on steroids. Diaz is a no-mark who should be linked with West Ham,not us. The warm fuzzy feeling from the NDombele signing has well and truly worn off. In my naivety I got sucked into believing that it was going to be the launchpad for a flurry of signings – Cabellos, Lo Celso, Olmo, Sessengnon all announced like contestants on the ‘Price is Right’ while we grudgingly mumbled ‘credit where credit is due’

    Alas I fear Captain Small Man Syndrome has reverted to type and the next we will be hearing is that he has been spotted lurking in the bushes of Montpelier’s training ground. I believe now that all the cash available went on one player and any additional signings hinge on the sales of 2 of our best players – Eriksen & Toby.

    Amateur hour on repeat.

  • Panama Paul July 10, 2019 at 10:13 am

    Real Madrid are having a summer clear out (allegedly). And we’ve been linked to a couple of them in Ceballos and Mariano as a make-weight in any move by CE23 to Madrid (a Poch request). Does ZZ really want or need CE23 anyway?

    I suspect neither player wants to leave the club because, in an RM players’ estimation, anywhere else is a step down. A loan without the option to buy makes no sense for us and even if the loan was like that there is no guarantee that the player wouldn’t be straight off to Madrid right after the final whistle of the last match of the season.

    Even Olmo, who we were nailed on for, would prefer to go to Spain. But Daniel wants it done this week. I’d say we have more chance of signing Elmo.

  • Patnevin July 10, 2019 at 9:54 am

    There’ll be no more signings. We’re completely future proof with the addition of Jack Clarke and “shattering” our transfer record to revolutionise our midfield with one player will be as good as it gets. If we see a raft of outgoings we might bring in one more because we know Poch likes working miracles with a thin squad.

    They offered him to the gooners. Didnt we have special relationship or is that with the yanks.

  • coys1882 July 10, 2019 at 9:14 am

    Yes, it is true H, there is a lot of disinformation, as always, being spread around by various media outlets, much of which is patently lies. So-called ‘reports’, conjured up out of thin air, or the feverish imagination of some prevaricating hack, disingenuously called a journalist, who the gutter press employ to lie to the public!

    It is a tedious task trying to pick through this minefield of ‘fake news’ to find the pieces of genuine information. Who are we truly ‘in for’? Lo Celso? Ceballos? Olmo? Sessegnon? Certainly some, possibly even all of the above! Other links, such as the one you have just mentioned, seemed a lot more tenuous or speculative.

    Either way, in the next month, all will be revealed, but I believe there is genuine hope that several more of Poch’s prime targets will be delivered by Levy. Some of those acquisitions determined by who is sold also. In the meantime, it’s always good to get these genuine quotes, to debunk some of the lies. Keep up the good work H!

  • Tappaspur July 10, 2019 at 8:59 am

    For harry Hotspur on the previous page. Social cleansing is happening all over London’s 32 boroughs as you well know. I’ll always champion my manor and team. Nothing wrong with bussing a little joke man especially in adversity

  • MrChickenHead July 10, 2019 at 8:49 am

    I’m pretty sure that’s happened already.
    Poch said you can have CE23 only if we get this 🤡
