Watch Your Daily Briefing: feat. Dybala, Dier, Ndombele and Declan Rice

By Harry Hotspur -

Brace yourselves, pilgrims. The back pages are coming at us with some increasing sense of urgency, bearing gifts of questionable quality. Eric Dier (aged 28) is being presented in some quarters as one of the best kept defensive secrets in England, and the apparently time expired Paulo Dybala (aged 29) is being billed as an opportunity once again for Tottenham.

The cherry on this particularly unsavoury cake is that Tanguy Ndombele appears to have failed in any sought-after winning of hearts and minds exercise in Ligue 1.

I just don’t see Dybala being what we need. A far better option would be to get someone like Ben Brereton Diaz.
That lad is just a bundle of energy and enthusiasm, and he can score plenty.

Nah. Need a) direct competition for kane (not happening) b) sell kane and buy 2 (risky) c) old head off the bench for big games or when kane needs a rest against Burnley

alreet, been a while…
I did these calculations on the way back from a beer lunch but i think they are conservative enough to stand up

Sell
royale – 20m
rodon – 10m
sessegnon – 20m
winks – 20m
bergwien – 25m

= 95m

buy
Rwb – 40m
Lwb – 30m
experienced/old CB – free/wages
LCB – 25m
MF – 50m
experienced/old CF – free/wages (Dybala)

= 145m

thats only 50m for baldy to find for his conte ‘warchest’ – he’s done it before.

team then looks like this

LLORIS

ROMERO DIER newLCB

Agree with the sales but I’d prefer less but better quality players coming in or we’re going to replace like with like. Baldy needs to look down the back of the sofa and find £100m if he wants to be taken seriously by Conte.

That’s what a normal club would do but you’re still left with no game changers on a poor bench and vulnerable to injuries, especially if you’re playing Champions League as well.

Dybala isn’t the same since his serious injury and it seems Juve are quite happy to let him go, but I wouldn’t take him.

Yeah. Right about no game changer on the bench. Baldy won’t do his nuts and spunk 100m though will he. The above was the best I could see to give conte a crack at keeping kane and competing in the league next term. Forget champs league, we’re miles off.

Good daily brief.. Dybala is 28 years old. The man can play. I would happily take him. He’s versatile, creative and has goals in him. He usually plays in Sons position on the left, but he can also play up top, fully capable of being a striker if Kane needs a partner or a rest… Signing the likes of Dybala or Martinez would mean Conte can play his favoured and most successful 352 with two strikers up top.

If so we should also sell son, moura and gil then. None fit in a 352.

No not necessarily.. Moura wants to leave by the end of next year. I think he’ll be surplus to requirements after the summer window. Gil is one for the future I believe keep him out on loan… Now Sonny is an enigma, he is unplayable on his day if we have a lot of counter attacks. But time and again he can go missing. All players need competition for places really. Now signing Dybala who is a great player, would only improve us. It would make players like Sonny up their game. It would give Conte more options tactically.. If our club has the chance to sign any world class player on a free then surely this is a no brainer.

I stopped reading at the bit that said he wants them to build less housing and more retail/industrial units including a cheese shop.

As an aside, just seen Levy’s objection letter to the High Road West Development proposed by Haringey council’s planning department.

While some of what he’s saying makes sense, much of this has an agenda (predictably). He wants less density to the housing and more of a retail and industrial element to it.

The council want to get as many people housed as possible, whereas Levy is clearly focused on gentrification, as it will bring higher property prices in the long term. Not only that, less residential density in the present means scope for more development to the surrounding area in the future.

Levy is great at pretending to care, when his focus is clearly focused on long term asset appreciation… Same old.

The Bald one is correct though.. 97 per cent housing would just breed more poverty in an already poor area.. They need healthcare, shops, jobs etc.

At the cost of housing? Why can’t they have both, this only encapsulates the development West of the High Road. Put your commercial spaces elsewhere close by.

There are countless shops and industrial spaces that will already and will continue to be swallowed up by the development. They’re smaller businesses that could be helped to create more and better jobs. What Levy wants is multinationals coming in and gentrification and for the existing local economy replaced with something else. zero hours contracts for some and a few ‘boutique’ ‘local’ businesses that will be run by middle class hipsters. One only needs to look towards the development in East London for the model…

People need to wise up…
