    Double WANT cos my new flat is just past the bottom left corner of that pic!!


    New Stadium - Yep
    Modric - Going Nowhere we hope and pray
    Strikers - Difficult to say cos we still own Keane, can't see him selling Defoe or Crouch, and selling our top scorer (Pav) would be such a dumb move that not even Harry could make it..so we're kinda stuck really. At best I can see Keane going to Fulham or Blackburn and us getting in this Mexican dude and maybe one other..


    Either way COYS :slayer:

    Going to be a long hard summer. I think that we will accept offers for PAv as he only has one (maybe 2 left on his deal) and he does not fit the homegrown quota. I think We are chasing Rossi but will miss out, hopefully LEandro will happen.

    I can actually see us selling Defoe if a £15m offer comes in.

    It would a be a move typical of the "Old Spurs" , ( like when we got Linker in and then Sold Waddle who would've provided no end of goals! ) if we ended up selling Pav and keeping both of the strikers that failed to score 8 Prem goals between them last season. I'd like to think those days are over..

    Glad to see Daniel has told Modric how it is.

    Id like to think that Levy has made the decision as a supporter, but it’s pure business sense. Putting a team together that can compete at the top level consistently will mean better long term financial rewards than a one off cash in on our best player(s).

    And this 10 year season ticket thing is genius. It will help us to clear loads of debt on the stadium re-build in one fell swoop, cutting down on any interest owed. :tea:

    Idea's like this and the double cup / league sponsor thing are why it's good to have a Jew in charge :teeth:

    Don't think Harry will sell Defoe but if we sign a striker I figure someone will have to go

    I genuinely think we'll get on the road to a new stadium before the end of the 2011-12 season.

    Modric will stay, at least for another year. If we don't improve I can see him going next summer.

    We'll sign a striker, we simply HAVE to, otherwise there's zero chance of what is already an horrendously tough ask of breaking back into the top 4.

    What gives you the right, "courier", to start this thread?

    We are allowed 17 foreigners in our squad, we currently have 17.

    Gomes, Friedel, Cuducini, Corluka, Gallas, BAE, Modric, VDV, Pav, Palacious, GDS, Krancjear, KAboul, Sandro, Pienear, BAssong, Khumalo

    Khumalo will probably go on loan. That leaves Kranjear, Palacious, Bassong & GDS the most likely to make way. If, as we are led to believe we are signing 3 players this window, all of which foriegn, we need to clear out 3 foriegn players. Ideally it would be GDS, BAssong and Palacious. If peopel don't come in, then Kranjaer (groan) Pav and keepers may be next in line. Particularly if we are bringing in foriegn strikers.

    Last line is the telling one.....


    Levy's done the easy part, keeping what we already have, now he needs to go out and get the "2 or 3 World Class players" Redknapp's been crying out for!

    did i read correctly the other day that youve slapped a 13m price tag on kranjcar's head? or just more paper tosh?

    if true i'm not suprised youre struggling to shift players if that's the sort of amount youre looking for for a player who's barely even played the last yr

    Yeah, but he is worth it. He is a fucking blinding player. Just because we raped Pompey in the last month of his contract it doesn't mean he is worth less...

    Must suck for him though, but that is a fair market valuation.

    i was more refering to lack of game time than how much you bought him for, a potential buyer will look at that & question what sort of form he's in, a yr is a long time in football, you've seen it with other players like Ireland, one minute he's City's player of the year, a yr later without a game & he's a shadow of what he was.. it's that element of doubt that might put off potential buyers.

    I must admit it does seem that we've ended up holding a lot of dead wood because of Levy's un-willingness to make a loss on a player.

    I'm gonna make a banner for the first home game:

    BENTLEY'S VALUE ISNT GOING TO GO UP DANIEL, GET THE FUCK RID.

    Fee for Kranky is daft, you ccan't charge that for someone that has been sitting on the bench for the best part of a year.

    I've got faith Levy will pull something out of the bag though, we bagged VDV last minute last summer for 8m no less.

    I would like to see Kranjcar stay, such a quality player. Out of respect to him though, he does need to move on to get first team football.

    Thoughts on Pablo Osvaldo? Espanyol have slapped a whopping £20m on him :smashed:

    Krajear is easily a £10m player.

    Osvaldo looks shit imo, and has only had one average season
