Maybe I was wrong…

Maybe I was wrong…

Roy Keane claims to have agreed personal terms with 3, if not all 4 of the Tottenham players he put bids in for last week. You know, the deal I said would never happen! Keane said: “I wouldn’t get bogged down with deals being done by today or tomorrow, but I certainly hope they will be by the weekend. “There is progress being made, but you know the score. You are dealing with clubs and sometimes the players have disagreements…

The dossier blown wide open!

The dossier blown wide open!

I got a bit of stick for bringing up the dossier last night but it doesn’t look like it will carry as much weight now thanks to Manchester United’s Scandinavian supporters’ branch!! It’s been widely reported today that they are taking the heat for the quotes attributed to Fergie in the British press regarding Berbatov last week. Bit convenient for me, but I’ll let you decide. “A feather has become 35 hens here. It might seem like we are to…

The Rumour Mill – Top Five

The Rumour Mill – Top Five

I thought I would post the top five unconfirmed Spurs stories I’ve heard from various sources over the last few days, maybe some of you in the know can comment on their validity. Not something I’ve done before but it could be interesting. 1. Keane and Poyet had a bust up after Keane told Poyet he was a fool for turning down Man Utd. 2. Ledley King and Berbatov had a training ground bust up over Berbatov’s constant sulking and…

My Kingdom for a dossier

My Kingdom for a dossier

‘A dossier is typically a briefing paper based on an individual of interest in police or intelligence circles’. That’s the Wikipedia definition of a dossier. My problem is Spurs aren’t the police and they are demonstrating about as much intelligence as when they brought Damien Comolli to the club. I’m sure Utd haven’t gone strictly by the rule book where Berbatov is concerned but a dossier worth of wrong doings?! To me a dossier is a little book, maybe 50…

Arshavin to soften the blow?

Arshavin to soften the blow?

Andrei Arshavin has been linked with all the big boys this Summer but reports today are suggesting the slighter smaller boy with potential for a growth spurt, Tottenham, are in for the Russian star. Zenit St Petersburg official Konstantin Sarsaniya was quoted in the Russian press regarding Tottenham’s interest in the player. “With Tottenham we have contacts,”“This English club is really interested in acquiring Andrei but, as I understand, €27 million (£21.5 million) is too high a price for them.“For…

Levy vs Fergie, I don’t fancy our chances!

Levy vs Fergie, I don’t fancy our chances!

Sir Alex Ferguson is considering legal action over Daniel Levy’s comments about Ferguson’s comments about Berbatov! As I’m sure everyone is aware, Levy complained to the Premier League that Ferguson has done his best to unsettle Berbatov labelling Ferguson’s comments to the press saying Utd have made a bid and is confident of getting his man ‘disgraceful’. I can understand why Levy doesn’t want to sell his best players without putting up some kind of fight but against Sir Alex…

Black Cats bid for 4, I find it hard to believe

Black Cats bid for 4, I find it hard to believe

Roy Keane of Man Utd, Celtic and now Sunderland fame has apparently bid for four of our misfits, Steed Malbranque, Teemu Tainio, Pascal Chimbonda and Younes Kaboul. Sunderland have also been linked with Darren Bent. I find it very hard to believe they have made solid bids for this quartet. Similarly to all the swap deals that are banded about in the press, when do you see four players move from one club to another? It just doesn’t happen! I’d…

Ramos speaks sense where transfers are concerned

Ramos speaks sense where transfers are concerned

Ramos was quoted in the press yesterday basically saying every player has their price, especially those approaching 30. “At Tottenham, we have had a clear philosophy regarding buying and selling for years. The idea is signing young players, promising and talented ones, and if important offers for older players are made, studying it to see what is the best for the club.” I completely agree with this philosophy. Every player should have their price and if clubs are willing to…

Chimbonda on his way…Hopefully

Chimbonda on his way…Hopefully

The sooner we get rid of this arrogant mug the better imo. Ever since his performance after the Carling Cup win over Ar5ena1, where he showed a complete lack of respect for the club and it’s fans, I’ve wanted him out. He then added to my hatred by acting like a spoilt brat when he was subbed in the final. To behave the way him did after two of the greatest games in the club’s history was a disgrace. The…

Lennon and Poyet committed to the cause

Lennon and Poyet committed to the cause

Both Gus Poyet and Aaron Lennon have been linked with moves away from the club recently, (seems like most of our squad have been) but both have moved to quash the rumours in the last 24 hours. Since the departure of Carlos Queiroz at Manchester Utd, Poyet has been linked with the assistant’s job there but it doesn’t look like he’s giving the rumours the time of day. Poyet told the club’s official website: “It’s nothing. It was a surprise…
