Opinion: Spurs Really Do Not Need To Sign Kurt Zouma
By Harry Hotspur -

One can tell when things are tough, The Express are getting aggregated by all and sundry. According to Tony Banks, Jose Mourinho is “confident” of completing this transfer raid. Which sounds rather promising, until one scrolls down the piece and discovers Mr Banks quotes Mr Mourinho sounding distinctly unconfident.

The truth is, Tottenham, like a good many other Premier League sides are looking at this window and wondering how they can implement damage limitation, without sending out a message to the rest of the division that they are running thin on ideas.

What’s key here are that fans will be coming back into stadiums next season, but not in vast numbers, and the first through the doors will be those that have already paid, the premium seats.

The absence of pay-on the-day consumers will continue to cripple clubs, who are already staring at significant debts run up when the nation was on lockdown.

As far as Kurt Zouma himself goes, quite why Tottenham need to blow a reported £25million on a 25-year-old journeyman is anyone’s guess. The Frenchman isn’t awful. He’s just far from anything approaching a priority at this stage.

If monies could be raised by selling Serge Aurier – as has been mooted – is investing in Zouma the shrewdest bit of business Spurs could do? He’s a centre back, not a left-back.

Tottenham need Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and they need AN Other right-back, if Jose were able to shift Harry Winks and Dele Alli, then sure, more the merrier. For now, Spurs have to cut their cloth – and that process starts with prioritizing targets.

Zoumas stats are pretty awful… Hes good at heading, but thats it… His tackling is specifically poor for a centre back. Any centre back has to be able to tackle….. Its as bad as having a striker who cant shoot.

Havertz is available, we should be going for him.i know this will not happen but if Levy and Lewis has some imagination, this is a transfer they could do very well out of.

Couldn’t agree more, we should be strengthening other areas before centre back. Is buying players that we actually need that much of a problem for Levy? Why not forget Zouma and go and get Hoijberg instead? Or put the money towards a striker?

I don’t give that article in the Express any credence at all.

We have become a club that epitomises everything that is wrong about professional football. We rinse our loyal client base with overpriced tickets and overpriced tat at the shopping centre. Our transfer strategy is a mockery of joined up thinking with no long term strategy where we continually buy wingers because our CEO thinks they are cheap and have a sell on value instead of buying the players we need. We are currently trying to buy two no marks from Wigan because the club is in trouble and that perennial idiot Levy thinks he can take advantage of their financial distress as he tried with Aston Villa and Jack Grealish. That ended well! I always read that such and such a player is out of our league but why? We are reputedly the eight richest club in the world but we behave as if we are in the Isthmian League. How much longer must loyal Spurs fans put up with this cr*p from our semi autistic CEO and his octogenarian god father?

Levy’s been wearing a different type of mask for the last twenty years.

Who in the their right mind is going to shell out for a season ticket for the coming season? Declan Rice is out of our league, £50-60 million.

Zouma is a journeyman who has not distinguished himself at Chelsea, Stoke or Everton. I would rather see us buy Declan Rice. West Ham were once a happy hunting ground for us, but no longer. Levy pi**ed off the Dildo Brothers when we wouldn’t send them Adebayor on loan just to spite them. We are reportedly the eighth richest club in the world, and we act like a Poundland shop.

Zouma is a bottom of the table club defender. Hes poor and not so young now…. Some good younger english coming through, Rice for sure, and Foden, and Greenwood. Too dear for scrooge though, those homegrown rules bumps the price of decent young english lads…. Why else would levy keep buying young french players in recent years? He used to buy english.

Bournemouth are fighting for survival, playing dreadful football, losing to the PL champions in a year where they are truly dominating and they still have more shots on target than our last 3 games!
