Rudiger To Tottenham Makes Plenty Of Sense And The Rumour Is Straight From Our Press Office
By Harry Hotspur -

The insular mentality at Spurs will take time undo, after all everything trickles downwards from the club’s uptight boardroom, as I’ve said previously, a business doesn’t develop its culture from the boys in the loading bay.

Dealing with Chelsea is anathema to many, just as trading with the Woolwich lot would cause hackles to raise. However, the arrival of José Mourinho has undoubtedly sent a mild panic through the ranks of the Nice Boys International Limited, as the Portuguese appears to have spent much of time strutting around Hotspur Way reminding everyone that football is our business and that business is war. At times of war one doesn’t mind doing deals that advance one’s chances – with folk you’d ordinarily cross the street to avoid.

Sky Sports say that Tottenham are interested in loaning Antonio Rüdiger from rivals Chelsea, and it is my understanding that as this comes from Lyall Thomas, then this has been fed straight from our press office.

I don’t like Rüdiger; that crying wolf business was pathetic and I wouldn’t want to see that from a man in the Spurs shirt, but he’s a hell of a footballer on his day, and if José can get a tune out of him, then so be it. The fact that he’s not a nice boy, actually appeals.

Mourinho and Lampard are insanely close, so this could happen.

Roman (can’t spell his surname) will not sell or loan to Spurs as he hates Levy’s guts. End of story.

I see this as another non story just a way of letting Inter Milan know we have other irons in the fire.I expect Skiriniar to arrive at £40m euros plus add on’s as long as we can shift Foyth £15m Rose £5m and imo unfortunately Aurier £20m who we need as back up.That would give Levy the £40m needed to secure a deal as the player has already agreed personal terms.Inter need money to secure their targets as well. Rudiger is an average player and that’s not what we need,we only want to bring a player in who is better than the current centrehalf’s. It’s Arsenal who take Chelsea’s deadwood now not Spurs,he would fit in their alongside Luiz & Willian nicely.

Heard that the reason we are leaving the skirinian deal so late is something to do with next years money. Dunno

You are nearly as optimistic as Levy with your valuations. I would think £10 mill for Foyth and £2 mill for Rose to be more realistic but it is more of the same with Levy, sell first before we buy and balance the books.

If you start low you can’t go up Scotty Parker looking for defenders this morning interested in Foyth around £10m also Valencia showing an interest.

Totally agree with the comments HH.

He is a very decent player, has pace & I think he only looks frustrated at Chelsea coz they haven’t got a clue how to defend, which he prides himself on.

He’s their best defender, but they don’t know it. He’s a troublemaker coz he’s a winner, let’s see how much they really want him out?

Have a feeling we may force their hand & if player wants to come & wear our shirt all is forgiven.

I personally dont see Rudigar as a good defensive player. He is very prone to mistakes and blames those around him. He is like Jose, but on the pitch!

I’m with you, not sure what all the fuss is about. Every player is good ‘on their day’, I don’t even see him as good as a 33 year old Verts. Chavski have defensive frailties at the moment and they’re ready to loan him out? What does that tell you? Plus, he goes around accusing people of stuff they haven’t done. Not for me…

Never been a massive fan of defensive loans full stop really – a settled defensive unit is the aim and if the player you build around leaves then back to square one.

Not sure. The price Chelsea quoted us on loaning Batshuayi was eye watering so doubt this’ll come cheap.

Having a laugh as said previously the Chelsea Board refuse to do any biz with Spurs. Given the last player to join Spurs on a free transfer was Cuddicini in 2009 I have quickly dismissed this link!!
