According to French Sources Daniel Levy’s usual dithering over pennies has jeopardized another significant transfer deal.

The suggestion is that Lyon are holding out for €90million for Tanguy Nombele.

Presumably the Bald Avenger is hoping to trim Mauricio Pochettino’s already sparse squad further in order to rustle up funds, and has only matched bids from other big European sides such as Juventus and Manchester United.

Paris Saint Germain are also rumoured to be sniffing about in the wings.

What is of interest here, is that the Lyon President would appear to have already shipped in a likely replacement, as covered by the Harry Hotspur blog earlier today.

Recently we read quotes from the Lyon President Aulas, who told the French press that a key indicator in any deal for Tanguy beginning to take shape if a good box-to-box midfield youngster arriving at his club.

It looks to me as if our old friend President Aulas is playing a shrewd game here.

Tanguy NDombele was bought for comparative buttons, so was Jean Lucas from Flamengo.

In the meantime, suitors for Tanguy can twist in the breeze until Aulas gives his presidential nod.

Yup. What joy. Daniel Levy is playing Chicken again.

    Does anyone remember that statement Levy released about a restructure re recruitment / scouting, said he was gonna step back and fully focus on the Stadium build and leave recruitment to Poch etc?

  • eddie June 21, 2019 at 10:12 pm

    individual errors down England tonight.Puscas anf Hagi worth a look at and very cheap{by EPL standards}.Our vaunted players didn’t do themselves justice tonight,looking very ordinary with wayward passing.

  • GiveItSomeWelly June 21, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    Why do we even bother? Levy is a fake and a conman, he’s making millions out of pretending to be a chairman with ambition, he couldn’t give a shit whether we win trophies or not, secretly he’s probably a gooner in fact. If you think he’s screwing you then screw him back, don’t go to the games and don’t buy his over-priced merchandise. They don’t spend for us so we don’t spend for them.

  • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 21, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    It seems straight forward. Pogba will go so NDombele is like for like, Lukaku is off to Juve and Dyabala will come the other way. ENIC FC fanny about and lose out.

    English football is in decline. The identity and spirit and passion has been bred out our game. This shit they’re being coached clearly ain’t working. The Spanish golden gen has been hyped and followed blindly and it’s fucked us. Romanians about to knock out the under 21’s. Not much future.

    I dunno – 2 all English euro finals says otherwise.

    Not many English players in them sides.

    Still teams from England, from the best league in the world. Pissed off the EU for sure.

    He singed a kid-toddler from cel vig, resorted to cradle napping levy is there no shame in you.

    This has to stop right now. This is bare faced robbery of the club. K owing fine well you ain’t going to make serious moves for any of the people your linked with is embarrassing to the fans, the ones with brains anyway, and the fact we are bumming around looking at Turkish lads, kids from Spain? Danny roses search engine gonna crash this weekend. Why do people applaud this fucking bastard???? He hasn’t made us the money him and Joe are rolling in, TV has. All that bastard has done is get us into a massive pile of debt. Fact and I defy anyone to debate me about it. What’s the point of champs league? Still can’t get quality players, he constantly moves the goal posts. Whl wasn’t big enough. Truth of that was 11 clubs, us 1 of them weren’t relying on gate receipts anyway. No champs league means we can’t attract them. 4 years of champs league. Still can’t. Reality is this. That vermin doesn’t want to pay players the market rate. Has no problem making hims3the best paid chairman tho. His whole plan revolves around a hope others fuck up, and by appeasing kane and poch it will keep unrest at a minimum. Anyone who can’t see that needs help

    If Utd, a Europa League club beat Levy to this lad that’s it for him surely? Utd getting Dyabala too….what’s the point of scraping top 4 again? Glory? Transfer clout? Fuck me. Levy cultists need to crawl away silently. This will be the far e to end all farces.

  • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 21, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Just listening to talking on radio about VAR in Copa America and how its total madness over there too. I see this as a serious threat to the sport, players or fans must take action or football will be destroyed. Il never go a Tottenham game again for other reasons but a fan of player boycott until VAR is taken out could be the only way. Is there enough real passion in top division football supporters to do it? No I reckon. It’s over by looks of things….

    I’m not sure what has been the most disturbing thing about the transfer- Levy’s low-balling or Poch in his budgie smugglers🤮

    Levy tried on Poch’s budgie smugglers and they came up to his chin.

    It’s a wonder little bald fuckwit didn’t hijack Lyon’s deal for their replacement for Ndombele, at 8m euros Levy thinks he can just about afford that, presuming the lad can play for a couple of hundred quid a week. Cheapskate shyster time waster.

  • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 21, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    Embarrassing when you think these young players earn more in a week than most others earn in a year. Pitiful, spoilt, over payed wasters.

    So as another working week comes to an end leaving us just over 6 weeks to sell/buy/bed/bolster/rejuvenate a squad that’s a busted flush , Pochettino was last seen in his pants on a yacht and Levy is laying dormant.
    Will we be in any better shape come seasons opener ?

    Absolutely not.

    If Levy doesn’t want to join in the silly season and pay the over inflated market prices then why destroy the essence of our club with the whole corporate stadium charade. That was the point wasn’t it? To join in? It’s all a load of spin and bollox. If he wanted to do it the “right” way….stay at the fucking Lane and build something. Oxymoronic moron chairman.

    It’s not about competing or players or football.
    It’s about NFL/events and the area regeneration. That’s all. RIP.

  • JimmyGrievance June 21, 2019 at 1:27 pm

    I refuse to believe Levy has offered any money what so ever for a player valued over £15 million. It’s not in his DNA until his hand is forced.

    Then you get the left overs like Sissoko. Who, before people bang on about what a great season he’s had….. he couldn’t get any worse than he was to be fair…. Still isn’t a very good footballer. No goals for an attacking midfielder isn’t a good return on £30 million

  • BobbytheBrain June 21, 2019 at 1:27 pm

    Why can we not follow the example of Man City? Now that is a properly run football club (financial fair play aside). If they want a player they go and buy them – no pissing around – release clauses are met.

    Having said that the world has gone mad – 90m euros for Ndombele? He has 4 French caps. 88m for Lo Celso? One good season behind him in a weak league. We would be taking a very expensive punt in both cases.

    but yet somehow we’re in the hope he’l finalise a deal on these big targets.

    Have we learnt anything from our past 2 windows and 20 years from this skinflint.

  • Marbella Spur June 21, 2019 at 1:10 pm

    Levy’s formula in the transfer market is to ask for twice what his players are worth and offer half the asking price to the selling club. This generally results in a deadlock until other clubs enter the market and we miss our target. He should not be involved in transfer negotiations.

  • Is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? June 21, 2019 at 12:54 pm

    PSG, Juve, City and now It’s in mix. ENIC FC failing to get this done after, 1.player says he would come. 2. Lyon willing to sell. 3. Lyon buy replacement to make way for sale, will be unbelievable. Although didn’t expect Levy to beat the others to the punch. He could beat a sloth on mogodons to the punch.
