Well Lamela is very suited to the Poch pressing game.  And he's a hard worker, tackles well.  He has under achieved during his stint at Spurs but a lot of that has been down to endless injuries.  I simply don't see anything in Sissoko.  To me, he doesn't even look like a professional football on the pitch.

 

One aspect of Poch that i'm really not sure about is his substitutions.  He does not make the changes earlier enough in the game to make the difference required and i'm yet to fathom if its down to him or his lack of bench options.

I see Lamela as a decent squad player but not much more. I doubt he's ever going to be much of an asset in attack. He still is too cute with the ball at his feet and frequently dispossessed as a result. There will be the occasional nice through ball and a goal from time to time. I don't think he is emotionally mature enough to figure out where he is lacking. You'd think he could learn something from watching Eriksen. Protect the ball, be patient, and pick your spots.

I think you mentioned Pulisic the other day.  Yes, thats a no brainer at a price tag set at 62m unless someone comes in with a really stupid offer.  He's brilliant, ticks all the boxes and we can sell off to bring in the cash to buy.  Now that would be a coup getting him.

 

Kovacic was and is understudy to Modric so that doesn't make him a poor player.  He wants out, again ticks all our boxes but will Real Madrid sanction him leaving?  Will Lloris have a part in it?

 

Everything completely up in the air for now.

Not sure that we will buy Kovacic or anyone else in that role if Dembele is not moved on, besides i'm not sure that we will play with 2 deep mids next season !

Dembele is the key, i agree.  We can sell him easily though unless Levy is asking a monstrous amount of money.  

 

Seems simple enough to go all out to get a replacement in the knowledge we can move Dembele on at a moments notice if needed.  

 

I've read reports suggesting that Levy/Pochettino never had any intention of moving in the market till very late but i don't believe it.  To my mind this is exactly what Poch didn't want.  Look at the others...City all in situ and just got stronger, United and Liverpool all done and done early, Arsenal business done very early and all getting to know each other.  Chelsea very up in the for obvious reasons so that leaves us.  Playing catch at the start of the season as per usual.

I tell my kids off for doing that.

its the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium....no naming rights!  No t very original and don't the club no were in severe financial problem, stadium cost spiraling out of control based off a 400m build and gloaters "eager to see how this one plays out!!!"  Goes without saying there couldn't possibly be any money in the transfer budget either.???

Hard to believe  you've  not seen able to sell the stadium naming rights but until you do wouldn't  it have been  better  to call it WHL or New WHL?

Defensive as usual i see. 

 

We got a shit load of money for being named after a Middle East airline - just think how many players that could buy you.

I'm sure you will get a much better deal when its "renegotiated".

 

"How much does Pep need?"

 

"350m quid"

 

"OK new stadium rights deal....350m a year sound OK?"

We might be playing with none at the beginning of the season as I hear Wanyama has broken down again....if Dembele leaves we will be playing Dier there.

 

Don't mention that womble Sissoko please.

ITK reckons Toby off to United for 55m, to be announced very soon.  (No Martial in any deal)

 

Have to say if this happens its great news, Aside of the handsome fee were getting it will more importantly get other deals moving which is whats needed.
