Walker-Peters Tipped For Crystal Palace Loan
By Harry Hotspur -

Martin Lipton has exceptional connections at Tottenham Hotspur, and in today’s piece for The Sun, Martin drops into the conversation that Kyle Walker-Peters is available for a loan, and that Crystal Palace are in pole position.

In the grander scheme of things, this is perhaps not earth-shattering news, the boy appears to have underwhelmed Pochettino. However, against the fraught backdrop of football club struggling with an identity crisis, this looks to be another ‘man overboard’ situation.

Walker-Peters has turned in some decent performances for Spurs, and might feel that a loan move is unkind. Especially when one factors in Mauricio’s wholesale inability to fill Kyle Walker’s berth – which became vacant back in July 2017.

The Harry Hotspur blog has been banging on about poor succession management with players at Spurs for over a decade now, and this is another shining example.

Tripper – not a wing back. Aurier – does not mix well with others. Walker-Peters – was previously linked with a loan to Southampton, in August 2019.

This leaves Juan Foyth, arriving to the sound of trumpeters, with smiling children scattering rose petals before his feet.

Spurs are in a right old pickle and this loan, were it to pan out, does nothing to improve matters.

    I think HH was just making the point, that contract was in Oct 2018

  2. Molespurs says:

    If we are paying off this debt now ,how much was diverted from our accounts ,whilst we were saving for the big shopping precinct …I wonder .

  3. Tappaspur says:

    I don’t know if there was an emergency January transfer fund put aside for this emergency. We need all that plus we need all of next seasons transfer kitty in too. £200 million spent on dyabla. Fernando. Atal. Steven sessy and dembelle from Lyon. The incoming must come before the out going. Got a better plan?

  4. Tappaspur says:

    We need players with BIG medals to walk into our dressing room. Senior ballers as it were, (winners) those who make the ball, angles and experience do the work. I don’t know of any

    • Steve KillerCushion Williams says:

      Aye we need BIG players. Leaders. Match winners.. warriors with winning mentalities.. Problem is now they all cost silly money… Or good scouts and coachs to snap them up young…benfica style. Get great players in young like the class of 92 and they win all their medals with us then… Lloris is our main man with the medal at the moment 😆

      • Tappaspur says:

        Must can find a senior player with them attributes for good Money. A 30 odd year old. I’d bring modric in. So what if we can’t profit on him in a few years time. Someone who’s respected and won shit.

        • Tappaspur says:

          The return of the rat

          • Steve KillerCushion Williams says:

            Lol i would like modders back, he was unique.. He has gone off the boil last year or two though… He was similar to messi the way he moved, but without the goals…… Replacing eriksen with a quality playmaker, who can also score and tackle and fight is key first thing… We need a new decent spine

    • Steve KillerCushion Williams says:

      Coutinho would have been great but he didnt wana go to any prem team apart from bindippers… Klopp said no to that so he went bayern.. Hes class… Dybala would have been great too

  5. Steve KillerCushion Williams says:

    I have heard so many people say that ‘poch didn’t want or need’ anyone.. Even after the guy has publicly said this isn’t true!.. Every manager wants to improve constantly.. No team wins everything hands down… Every manager would take messi, ronaldo etc…… Imagine levy saying to poch ‘would you like a world class player or two in the next window? Match winners?” Pochy replies ‘no thanks friend, you give me sissoko and llorente so we are strong enough no?’……… Jesus wept

  6. Molespurs says:

    I don’t want potch to leave he hasn’t been backed by enic that’s levy n Louis if they think Mourinho is the answer god help us if they won’t back potch do you think they will back the special one of course not.

  7. VancSpurs says:

    Spot on. The houses of the future they predicted during World Expos in the 60s look nothing like the houses of today. Don’t invest long term in linoleum. Once you advance after a long contract with that plastic nonsense, you’ll find that you cherish the wooden boards below. And you’ll find scraping off that lino is painful.

  8. VincentianMagic says:

    The only positive with the Alli contract is that we may be able to demand more for him when hopefully he is sold in January.

    Everyone knew that the situation with the squad was going to blow up if fresh blood wasn’t introduced; the two successive windows with no transfers coupled with a distinctly average Summer window has seen this realised.

    Not sure what’s going to transpire as half the team look shot. Poch seems increasingly pissed off too.

    Hopefully Lo Celso and Sessegnon can be integrated asap. In our current malaise I’d be tempted to play a back five – use Sessegnon and KWP as wing-backs to provide much neded width. Bring in Foyth as a sweeper for additional protection. Then play Winks and Ndombele in CM, with Lucas, Son and Kane as a front three.

    Ease Erikson out of the picture, and as we have three CB’s, perhaps let Dier and Sanchez have a game or two alongside one of Verts/Toby.

    January needs Levy to bring in at least two players to improve the first 11, and ideally at least 3-4 more in the summer. This needs to include at least one CB, another RB, a CM, AM and a CF.

      Thats why to me Botch is part of the problem , he had the chance , instead came out with his ‘Be Brave ‘ , to be honest I am fed up with the whole THFC Circus .

  10. Spurs est1882 says:

    Seen United linked with Mbappe…just proves how much CL and a new stadium means when its considered against a good wage packet!

  11. Tappaspur says:

    The fed up of it allers. Take a break. The ally pally fireworks event. big bonfire. big display. German beer festival (largest in the UK) music. Ice skating. Family friendly areas. But mainly for me the Luna cinema in the most wonderful Victorian theatre. I’d pay the £12 alone just to look in there. Oh. Roy Ayers is jamming there on the 29th. I love Haringey. Up the SPURINGEY😁😁

    “Players signed who were not necessarily what the team needed but were considered good market bargains”
    Guillem Balague

    The last transfer window was one that demanded top quality uogrades be recruited for a host of positions — wingbacks, centre backs, defensive midfielders, a creative no. 10. And as CL finalists all of them could have been recruited. All of them.

    Instead, levy prioritized the signing of Jack Clarke .. a player neither Poch nor Bielsa wanted or could use; but somebody levy thought he could make a profit on. That was where his mind was at during a transfer window when spurs desperately required a host of quality uogrades and had never been more attractive to top talent.

    • Marbella Spur says:

      I couldn’t agree more, see my previous post of one hour ago. Buying players you deem cheap to resell is not always a bad thing. Wenger, to give him credit, was a master at that early in his Arsenal tenure. Viera, Anelka, Overmars, Petit, Lundberg to name a few. Later on he lost his way and started buying overpriced rubbish like Ozil and Mustafa. It is possible to build a good title winning team without breaking the bank as Leicester did and are continuing to do. They bought Maguire cheaply, a player we extensively scouted, and in my humble opinion, sold him at the top of his market price. Unfortunately, our beloved chairman does not understand or even want a proper scouting and analytical department as he thinks he knows better. We know differently.

      • ronan1882 says:

        Signing Clarke against your coach’s wishes – and when you very briefly have CL finalist status – confirmed THFC will never realise its potential under this chairman.

        • Tappaspur says:

          That boy needs to be at Hotspur way for a season with the PL2 lot. Loan him out the following season for a bit. That’s what I’d do

          • ronan1882 says:

            He’s not good enough for a championship team’s bench and doesn’t even play in any of our problem positions.

            • Tappaspur says:

              He’s only young. Train him up at the way man. Nothing wrong with a ten mil teen punt. (If you get it right😁)

              • cincyspurs says:

                I think your missing the point. He was not on anyone’s radar. Poch didn’t want him and we had too many problem areas to fill. This is not the time to take a gamble on a teen not wanted by your manager. If Levy had brought in top players Poch wanted the last 2 windows then maybe its not a big deal. But this window 10 mil might have got the Dybala deal over the line. or a right back brought in ( not with just 10 mil but the addition of said 10 mil)

  13. Marbella Spur says:

    A good businessman knows his limitations. Levy should appoint a DoF to take the pressure off Poch and to devise a credible transfer policy. Having taken that sensible course, Levy could go back to counting the bog rolls in the changing room loos.
    On the matter of Alli’s new contract, he is the first player I would sell. He is a self indulgent fake footballer who brings nothing to the team. I agree with Roy Keane that he will probably never play for England again and the sooner the same applies to Spurs, the better.

    • PlayItAgainSamways says:

      What like the best in the business Mitchell? Who Levy made to do 2 years gardening leave.

      Best if Levy andEnic just fucked off

    • Steve KillerCushion Williams says:

      Sir alex said first thing he really had to learn at manure was to let everyone get on with their jobs and trust them all from the tea ladies and physios and scouts up to the chairman and the board….. Number one problem we have is levy micro managing and meddling everywhere.. The fact he is in full control of transfers, yet is not a football man and knows nothing about the game is very strange…. I hope dele can get it back on track… Eriksen i would sell first before he leaves on a free

  14. Marbella Spur says:

    The trouble is that some sympathy for Poch has evaporated when he accepted his new lucrative contract despite having a complete understanding of Levy’s tactics. Did he think Levy would change his modus operandi when he asked the club to be brave? Levy’s transfer policy is akin to a monkey playing darts. Jack Clarke is an example of a player being bought whom Poch clearly did not want. I think Poch will be gone this season, one way or another, five years with Levy is enough to trouble a saint.

  15. DannyG says:

    I read that article too – really good read. It doesn’t really come across as news since we already knew the score, but does she’d light on Poch’s desire to fix this bad patch.
    This is the season where all those crappy transfer windows caught up with us. The 3 that we brought in were too little too late to prevent the malaise. The failure to move on some of the squad probably even more of a problem. This was always going to happen. Now we have to suck it up. Poch is still the man, let him sort it out.

  16. Chrism090861 says:

    I always wonder how much Balague ‘Does not’ tell us, so as not to undermine any confidence that Poch has with him. I always did wonder what the point of players like Nkoudou and Njie were, especially given that Poch spent the first couple of seasons getting rid of the dead wood and the ones not buying into his philosophy. The problem is that even if some people want Poch gone, and get their wish, the next manager and the one after that etc, would all have to work under the same constraints as all the others, and deal with the way Levy runs the club.
