'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Touchdown!

Despite Daniel Levy hiding behind a steward and donning a Luka Modric Hairpiece, it seems that no one was fooled into thinking that our little Croatian mercenary was crossing the Atlantic. It now appears that Modric refused to travel to America, and though this would seem like the start of his one man war against Levy and the club, who would you really back in a battle of will between the rodent look alike and our great leader?

With no Sandro, Rose, Caulker or GdS due to the Olympics, Parker due to his Achilles injury or Pienaar to his impending move to Everton, it would seem that we have a rather compact squad, though with an expected announcement over Emmanuel Adebayor's future very shortly, we might at least have more than one established striker. Emmanuel is supposed to be in New York and was supposedly pictured wearing Elvis Presley's glasses, with a Spurs fan last night, so hopefully he is there to conclude his move to WHL rather than taking an extra holiday, as he probably remains persona non grata at City.

Spurs face LA Galaxy with former player Robbie Keane, sure to be up for a battle against his former club, Liverpool and Thierry Henry's New York Red Bulls, which will all be highly interesting and competitive games, that might even make me get up in the early hours to watch...

Second for a great tour in the States

Has anyone mentioned "transfer request" to Modric?
RyanHotSpur
What time do the games in the states kick off , uk time?
spurfect one
Pity football couldn't have a draft system like the american sports....
TopSpur13
@ spurfect one the Galaxy game (1st) kicks off at 3-30 am GMT, so you have a choice of no sleep or missing the game
oxfordspur
perfect place for our tour. teams halfway through season so will be hard games. the hot climate will also make it harder for our team thus improving the teams fitness. im actually flying out to America this tues an dont leave my house till 6 in the morn so have decided to stay up all night an watch the game on espn. perfect timing for me :)
BrooksySpurs
Hope a few of the young strikers have gone - a good early pre season for someone like couillibaly could really force him into avb's thinking. Fed up that all the talk is about modric - do it early Daniel and don't let modric unsettle things after some early season positivity.
Windlespur
What nxt for levy and modric
sunnymakcres
Windlespur - If you believed the Spanish reports, AVB said Levy is in USA because his wife is ill.
what_sux
Does anyone else think this could be a long summer. I'm not sure that we will have our summer spending done by the start of the season again. With Levy off looking after his wife who now holds the purse strings.
nothappyharry
What-sux, there is so much crap being stirred up by the press to unsettle our club it is unreal. The other day it was adebajor deal off because he has gone back on his salary promise to us, now it is modric gone on strike. Reality is probably that ade will sign and modric was told that as he is not staying, we don't want him injured and want to do pre season with those in our plans. Hope levy does it early and just ignore the press trying to unsettle us. They no longer know everything that is going on since Harry left, so they stir up trouble.
Windlespur
Good luck to the lads!! Would like to stuff Liverpool with our kids. Hope the Adebayor deal goes through... It's needed!! Seems as tho all the big name strikers we are in for (supposedly!??) are all happy where they are!? Bored of the Ratman talk also... Please sort it out Levy... After your wife gets better, obviously!!
YidoDave
if the modric thing is true he is bordering on being as big a prrick as campbelllend. you may think im not living in the real world bt the way he is treating our club id say forget ur move to RM, rot in the stands unless u wanna play for us and try ur hardest.
BrooksySpurs
bahaha Modric is the greatest thing since sliced bread when you spuds are over on vital chelsea giving us crap but now he has shown his true colours and refused to go on tour REFUSED!..he is now a rodent look a like..you are all the same both your players and supporters you are gonna back stab each other into the ground I cant wait to see you turn on AVB mid way through the season exciting times ahead...unless you support spurs
heart_of_blue
Windlespur - I agree with what you said regarding the press. But Levy is currently busy of personal matter if we take the Spanish report to heart, so he may not be able to do it early mate.
what_sux
ur right heart of blue he is a rodent. would suit ur club right down to the ground then.
BrooksySpurs
heart_of_blue - Don't worry, I won't be surprised to see Mr Roman fire his puppet manager before that, and signed Harry Redknapp as his replacement, and sign Heskey, Owen for free . Looks a good prospect to you, no? ;-)
what_sux
Remind me heart of blue, wasn't your manager sacked by West Brom not so long ago? And hasn't your best and most influential player in Drogba left recently? And hasn't your captain been in court charged with racism? And didn't we finish two places above you last season, despite you spending hundreds of millions yet again, only to finish below Newcastle? Much more exciting to be a Spurs fan than a Chelsea one right now I assure you. You're essentially just an expensive Stoke City. I pity you supporting such a hollow, plastic, and fake club mate I really do.
Tottenham'till i die
chavs still bitter about mods i see.......what the boss says goes,simple......
rovinella62spurs
Does anyone actually know for sure that modric has REFUSED to fly out to the states?? seems to me that its all paper talk.. he's probably not there so that he doesn't risk injury and then were stuck with a player that doesn't want to play for us.. i for one thank him for all he has done and wish him all the best at his next club, no one is bigger than spurs but yes he's a big loss due to being utter class.. but be sure that levy will get what he wants long before modric does! we will get a replacement who that is, is anyones guess but we still have a great squad and i'm really looking forward to the new season with AVB and think were going to have a really great season..Heart of a blue.. i honestly think your going to struggle next season due to one simple thing.. too many new players who have never set foot in EPL.. i dont doubt ou've bought quality players with potential, i just cant see them hitting the ground running straight away.. next season maybe.. but not this one.. and before you say it.. yes all the players you bought i would have loved to come to the lane.

First that bulgarian tw$t now a cro-tw$t. 2 players who have come to the Spurs and sh$t on us! They get to a stage where a couple of clubs are willing to pay silly wages and they forget who gave them the opportunity in the first place. I am really looking to the PFA, who incidentally are right behind their playerswhen they seem to be mis-treated, fully criticising the mercenary scum who refuse to play or travel to games. i will not however hold my breath..... If this piece of scum signs for a premier league team i really hope we reduce the litte tw$t to tears!!! Angry is not the word for how i feel about big nose!!!

HuddersfieldYiddo
Really *****es me off the number of peeps on here making assumptions based on media bull*****. There is NO EVIDENCE whatsoever that Modric has misbehaved. If a deal is likely with RM or whoever, it just as likely he has been told by AVB to go home while the negotiations go through. All this newspaper GUESSING is just that and people should see it as that and not be so stupid as to take it for gospel and react to it. As far as I'm concerned Modric is INNOCENT until proven guilty which is how you would expect to be treated if allegations were made against you !!
Hot_Spur
If this the squad for the USA tour where`s LUKA `rat face mercenary ` MODRIC ??????

GOALKEEPERS - Jordan Archer, Carlo Cudicini, Brad Friedel, Heurelho Gomes

DEFENDERS (8) - Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Sebastien Bassong, Michael Dawson, William Gallas, Younes Kaboul, Kyle Naughton, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker

MIDFIELDERS (10) - Gareth Bale, David Bentley, Tom Carroll, Tom Huddlestone, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon, Jake Livermore, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Andros Townsend, Rafael Van der Vaart

FORWARDS (2) - Jermain Defoe, Harry Kane
big cockeral
The reason Ratman has not put in a transfer request, is because Harry has promised to write it for him, both trying to get one over on Levy. Ratman is in Croatia, most likely on the Russian Mafia's Yacht, he of Chelski....I hope RATMAN never plays for us again.
spu 4 life
heart_of_blue - last season it was Levy who blocked his move, not us on vital spurs or any other Spurs Fan. If a player wishes to cause problems, we all have the right to slag him off.
spu 4 life
Can someone tell AVB to shut his mouth?
RagingSpur
Hots_spur... AVB has gone public and said 'modric is wrong and the chairman is angry'. Either AVB is lying or modric is not playing ball (pardon the pun) n'est pas?
Jocka10
Hot_Spur - I don't have a contract with THFC and if i did, i would have no intention of leaving or wishing to do so, if i was a professional footballer at spurs, no money, champions league or any other option, would make me leave, RATMAN, has a contract, if he wishes to leave make it known, and put in a transfer request, he has not done so, his contracted to THFC and has a job with us, not real madrid or ANO, at this present time, So i for one will slag the little shi7 off as much as i like.
spu 4 life
Big C decent little squad even without him. Still needs beefing up but we've got to add Sandro, Parker and Caulker to the mix so we only really need to add Adebayor and another striker, find a replacement for Modric and then, if we're being greedy, a top draw keeper. Whether that's an established name like Lloris or an amazing prospect like Butland I'm not fussed.

Townsend deserves his call up to the squad and Naughton being there may be an indication that he's happy to stay. Kane's highly rated but very raw and Carroll has plenty of potential but It'd be totally unfair to even consider asking him to be anything more than just a fill in player at this stage.
Spurs Allday
Jocka AVB has gone public? NO, the MEDIA say he said that, there is nothing official. When it appears on the official site I will believe it, until then it's media crap.

Well sky sports have reported quotations from AVB. If its not been said then AVB is well within his rights to sue. I am confident he said it. Thats enough from me on the subject we shall just wait and see......
Jocka10
Spurs allday .. I think it`s decent when looking at Defence & Midfield on their own .
But our Goalkeeper & Striker positions is a serious issue for me,& needs addressing ASAP .

Get rid of Frodo quick & use the cash for 3 strikers & a bad ass goalkeeper .Defoe should be 3rd striker at best imo .

Lloris ,Huntelaar ,Moutinho ,Rhodes & Adebayor would nicely complete our squad imo .
big cockeral
spu 4 life What you would do is irrelevant to anybody else. If a player (any player) wishes to leave a club (any club) that does not make him a bad person. There is no evidence that Modric has behaved badly, yes he has a contract but the club have agreed to release him from that with sufficient compensation for doing so. There is nothing wrong with that.
Hot_Spur
Jocka No he couldn't sue. The press twist words and misquote all the time, that's what they do. They get away with it because of the "free press" policy. In any case, misquoting is not a direct slur on AVB's character so there would be no grounds for a libel suit.
Hot_Spur
You guys will soon realize that AVB has a big mouth and no one can shut it up HAHA

Hyppocrit of the year award goes to heart_of_blue for this comment.

"I cant wait to see you turn on AVB mid way through the season"

Congratulations pal would you like to say a few words?
RyanHotSpur
I think you'll find majority of fans will still regard Modric as a class act and quite happily have them in their "best players to wear a Spurs shirt" selection. It does not mean that they have to respect him soley based on his football ability. Alot of fans are quite hurt that he has liturally used Spurs as a stepping stone to join a megabucks club, and quite rightly so. Fans react this way to losing their best players in such a way. Arsenal with RVP, Manchester with Ronaldo, Liverpool with Alonso, etc etc. Alot of love lost when a player forces a move.
RyanHotSpur
Big C I agree on the positions that need looking at but I'd like different personnel. More than happy with Lloris he'd be a great signing, Adebayor I think is a given, Moutinho would be the ideal replacement. Given Huntelaar's age, wage demands, transfer fee I don't feel he's the right target and Rhodes is decent but about as proven as Kane at this level. I'd like us to go for one big name who can operate on the flank to give us a few options so we go into next season with a pecking order of Adebayor, ST/RLW, Defoe, Kane, Coulibaly
Spurs Allday
Hot_Spur I admire your optimism but why would the press go with "Modric goes on strike" and not "Modric given Spurs leave as he nears Spurs record 45m transfer" which ones the bigger headline? if this deal was that close it'd be all they'd be talking about.
Spurs Allday
AVB couldn't sue sky sports as they've clearly stated "as reported by AS" so they've not put their own heads on the block they're simply passing on information.
Spurs Allday
Hmm I can see AVB looking for Meireles if I'm honest. Shame we paid over the odds last year so it's priced you out of the deal.
CalculatedKalou
Spurs Allday I guess the answer to your question is that the press don't know if the deal is close, only AVB and DL know the precise situation. The press therefore can jump either way and although you say your latter headline is the bigger, not necessarily, "bad boy" or "bad news" headlines usually attract more attention than good news.
Hot_Spur
Hot_Spur as a newspaper reader what would you rather read? Another twist in the never ending Modric saga? Or Modric saga finally appears to be over? I know which paper I'd rather read and I'm pretty sure that 99.9% of people who've put up with this drama over the past 12 months feel the same, so yes "Modric off to Madrid" IS the headline that will sell more papers because we can't wait to see the back of it!
Spurs Allday
big cockeral, dude, you always get firsts, how do you do it?

heart_of_blue, Chelsea's days are numbered. As soon as the oil man backs out or croaks it you're going the same way as Rangers. Good luck with your new batch of mercenaries! No more Drogba to bail you out.

123spurs
You can blame the gentlemen's agreement on this. The clock is ticking for this sale lets just get it done and over with because the next offer will be lower and lower just as it was with Fab. It doesn't matter the amount of years he has left we can sit here and bench him and lose potential money to find a class signing. I don't care if he wants out this was already known for a long time. Levy will not get his money...and we will not have a player here who is forced to be here and playing at a 100%. He is worth the 30m...pull the strings already.
RagingSpur
He will lose 80k...big deal! He will train once team is back in London if that's what it comes to and he will give it 20% to get back at Levy. All he has to do is show up at practice and show he isn't committed and collect his paycheck. Bench him? I don't think he will cry being on the bench getting paid 40k to do nothing...just get this deal done and over with already.
RagingSpur
You can blame his agent for not inserting a release clause.
Spurs Allday
Hot_Spur - exactly I said that in th last artice - it's a sad world when people believe paper gossip and even worse when they act on that belief by being abusive - isn't that why wars are started through 'false beliefs'.

I really get fedup wih reding diret abuse towards a player just bcause the papers print a sensationalised story.
Imon the brink of aing this site bcause of it.

Everyone has an opinion andcan air their feelings if they perceive a player or manager not to be doing teir job uto abuse players of doing something they annot prove just because it is in the papers is ludricous and violent and damn right delusional.

As I have said we live in a SAD world.

What player will cry about being benched and making 40k? All he will have to do is show up to practice and give minimal effort and get his wages. The End. The only losers are going to be the clubs...He singed a contract and he wants out which every player does when better is offered but there is no punishment that can be made when he has to agree to all loans and sales as well. You think benching him is us getting the best of him? Hhaha he will be sitting and laughing at the easiest money he has ever made in his life...

U R A JOKE
Yidd Fein
Alright don't caps lock me b1tch! Seems like you lads won't have a proper footballing discussion with me. But seriously, I'm sure all our past managers are gutted about us paying their wages for months on end. The abuse your giving modric is down right disgusting.Modric is a human being not a slave, if he wants to leave, he shouldn't be held hostage by levy. D'you have any proof about these accusations, no your just believing media bull *****!
CalculatedKalou
keep seeing JENAS... traingin pics and videos.. landing in the US.... please someone tell AVB to get rid... please...
Yidmarks
CalculatedKalou - We are not holding him hostage, we make it very clear that either pay the amount we wanted or else we will not sell. He can sent a transfer request, he can forgo his loyalty bonus, he can also use few months or years of his salary to add to the bid I don't mind, as long as we get the money of our valuation, or else he will fulfil his contract here.
what_sux
Oh I'm aware of the situation, I was merely reacting to claims from some of your supporters that you should chuck him in the reserves for the next 4 years just to make him suffer.
CalculatedKalou
If Modric was the 'gentleman' he was portrayed to be by HR and others last season then he would fully understand the club's current stance regarding his transfer. We have been open and honest with him - we appreciate you want to leave and respect your wishes. However we want a fair price for you which we feel should be 35m. If we receive that you are free to go. Quite simple really, no ambiguity and no animosity. I'm very annoyed that Modric feels it's OK to shaft the club that has paid his wages for the past few years by trying to force us to sell him at way below his market value just because it suits him. He doesn't give a toss that it doesn't suit the club. Seeing as he has displayed this selfish attitude he can have no complaints that Levy is digging his heels in. He is just showing Modric that he an be stubborn too but with the added advantage that he holds all he cards. Modric has behaved like a spoilt child and now Levy will rightly treat him like one.
SpuriousLife
An example needs to be made of Modric .
Players need to learn they can`t have their cake & eat it .Any player under contract should hope a move materialises ,not force one .I`ll forever be baffled as to why he signed a 6 year deal & why he never put a simple release clause in it .He has clearly been very badly advised .
Modric holds & a good hand but with so many years left on his contract Levys hand is still better .
,br>This needs to be wrapped up before it gets ugly .Modric on his own is ruining what should be a a very exciting season ahead .

Hand in a transfer request Frodo
big cockeral
I think that we should hold out until we get the best offer that we can for Modric, if that be deadline day then so be it. There is no way that he should be included in our pre-season plans, we need to move on from in being in our midfield.
Fanman
CalculatedKalou, do you honestly believe that Modric will be at Spurs this season?
Fanman
Here's reality. Modric can decide where he wants to go. His choice. He has four more years left so we can decide the price at which we are prepared to let him go. So if he wants it to be Real Madrid and we insist upon 40M, then RM will have to cough up 40M to get him or Modric remains a Spurs player. If he goes on strike, he will be fined. Lots of money saved and he will be unlikely to be selected for international duty if he's picking his butt. His value will stay high for another year and then will gradually drop if he's not playing. He really can't force anything for 3 years and, at that point, I can't imagine as any top teams will want a rusty 30 year old who really hasn't played for 3 years. If I were Levy, I would tell City, United and Chelsea, if you want him, he's yours for 50M. RM, yours for 40M. I suspect no one will meet the valuation and Modric will have a very painful choice to make. He signed a contract. He'll have to honour it. I see no reason to up his wages at this point, so he's already throwing away at least 45k/week, not including any fines and suspension by the club. It's money he will never recoup. If he were smart, he'd play for the shirt, take the pay raise and if someone meets our valuation that he likes, move on. He has choices. So do we. It's a team game. He's one player. Wouldn't it be awesome to be wining trophies with him sitting in the stands? COYS
peterballb
peterballb Exactly mate, excellent post.
Spurs Allday
Peterborough we are honestly better of with a replacement, he did nothing for most of last season! He was class some games but then you could see on his face half the season he didn't want to be there so did nothing on the pitch he was the lazies player on the field most games last season
spurticus87
And agree it was a top post
spurticus87
Big C, I don't really think Modric is having much of an effect on matters. It does not seem as AVB ever considered that he would be part of the side. Levy has a position, and much like last season, is unlikely to budge on it. Looks like Pienaar will be gone soon and I expect decisions to be made on Bentley, Jenas and a few others by the time we come back from the US. Let's not forget, one of Levy's conditions is that we have a replacement in place. If RM think leaving it until the last second will work, I believe they will be surprised. I suspect as deadlines have been provided along with the exact price and conditions that RM must meet. I also suspect as it is fairly steep. Meet it or tell Luka, sorry, maybe in January. COYS
peterballb
Ledley the legend king should just slap modric!
Metal Spurs
Fanman, I'm not too sure at the moment, but my instinct tells me yes. Look at Madrid, they've got a plethora of talent for the double pivot in their formation, they certaintly will not be held to ransom. I feel Levy may have met his match. But, modric has to suck it up and act professional, because everyone knows that Mr.Levy is not a man you want to make angry.
CalculatedKalou
Spurticus, yes, we are better off with a replacement who wants to be here. The issue is, that replacement is already under contract elsewhere and if we don't buy them in good time, the other team will also not be able to get their replacement in. This will be Modic's problem. If we want Moutinho, Porto need time and the money to replace him, just as we need to with Modric. I believe this matter will have to be conclued before the beginning of August or it won't be happening. Levy learned a huge lesson from the Berbatov/Keane situation. His waiting cost Ramos any chance of fielding a decent attacking side, especially with 4 competitions and a new style of play. It would be equally damaging if we allowed Modric to go on the last day without having a replacement in. If I were Levy, I might well throw the money at Hulk and Leandro now, and then do the best I can with Modric later on. WE need strikers anyway.

I also believe Modric is much more influential in MF than most are giving credit. He will never be an assist man when he is generally giving the ball to VDV deep. He is also unlikely to score from so deep. What I will say is that whether beside Sandro, Hudd, Parker, Livermore, the central MF has looked pretty solid. When he has not been there, that has generally not been the case. A lot of what he does goes under the stats radar. My view of things. Again, it's a team game. He is one player. I believe Moutinho would score and set up more and perhaps force VDV higher, which would again result in more goals. Perhaps we'll score 10 more and concede 5 more. Last season that would have put us in third. He's just a piece to the puzzle and he doesn't want to be there. Buy the strikers. If it's not done in time to get a replacement in, let him sit til January. COYS
peterballb
spurticus87 - He was not the laziest player on the field most games last season. Remember watching some of his tactics, most of the games he is in top 5 most work rate player in most matches. Yes, his performance drop, but he still work hard.
what_sux
I don't believe that Modric tried or worked any less last season. What was missing was that extra flair that differentiates a great player from an exceptional one. Like Fabregas, he is a step above, but without the joy and passion burning, he is just great. Modric, last season, was professional, in most respects. The lack of passion made him look a lesser player, and he was. Still a great player. Just not exceptional. COYS
peterballb
pb - when you think about it though, how strong is Levy's hand? He has had to recoup 24m on player sales in 2 consecutive balance sheets to run the club and we haven't seen the 11/12 report yet. As much as I love the concept, leaving Modric in the stands is unrealistic and not logical for Levy when you're running a tiny company with a turnover of 150m. What is realistic though is waiting for that 27m to become something that returns a much higher profit for THFC. That's what small companies do. You might be right in that we can still get top dollar in Jan or next summer but I doubt Levy will follow that approach. My guess is that he'll go late in the window and realistically we'll be active in January because of it.

what_sux
I am going to have to agree with CalculatedKalou and some others in that this is media selling cr@p. It would be far better if AVB or Spurs come out and make a statement re Mod's omission from the USA trip. IMO, the transfer is imminent and the suggestion that our valuation has not been met by RM, the spanish media are stirring to aid their local team and put pressure on Spurs. Little do they know about Levy's business acumen. If the transfer is completed next week, many would look silly with their comments here........though I agree with all the names he's being called!! :0)
Critical_Spur
CalculatedKalou - Fair comment. Not quite sure what you mean by "met his match" or "held to ransom" though. Surely it's in every clubs interest to demand a fee they seem reasonable. I don't believe 35 is far off a fair price for Modric who is legally contracted to Spurs for a further 3-4 years? If Modric don't want to pay that then obviously Spurs don't want to sell. Modric would like to leave to play for Real but ultimately his contract that he decided to sign because it suited him at the time is owned by Spurs. If Hazzard decided he wanted to leave Chelsea for Spurs and we wanted to give you 10mil less than your valuation of the lad, would you find that the right way to do business? The player is not bigger than the club. I would quite happily see the club make an example of him if he throws a strop. The club stated they were happy to sell if the valuation was met, which isn't unreasonable by any measures seeing as RVP is being quoted at 30mil with 1 year left on his contract.
RyanHotSpur
muttley, Levy will not allow Modric to go to RM for 27M as he will no doubt be able to get 35M plus in January from whichever top 4 team is not in the top 4. Chelsea I believe will have trouble. They would still love to get Modric. ManU need a player like Modric. If Barca are running away with things, RM will need Modric. If RM are running away with things, Barca will need Mdric. Inter, AC Milan, Juve. There are lots of injuries and permutations that will occur between now and January. Levy's hand is very strong and if he holds firm, there will be fewer of these incidents at Spurs in the future. This is about how to go about business. As I stated, there will not be a repeat of the Berba/Keane matter. First off because we have Sandro, Hudd, Livermore along with Parker when he recovers. None as good as Modric, but with Sigurdsson, VDV, Bale, Lennon all vying for the other MF positions, we are in pretty good shape. Not ideal, but still a good prospect for goals and goal creations which is why my focus, if I were Levy, would be to get the strikers in we need. I'd get Adebayor, Castaignos, Leandro and sell on Defoe, who just will not fit in to any system I see AVB employing. If GDS also stays we could be a team that scores lots of goals. Put Sandro (who I rate very highly) in front of a younger, bigger, stronger back 4 and we'll be tough to be scored against. Focus on free kicks and corners at each end and who knows, maybe we can do well in all 4 competitions as early as this year. Adebayor in the middle of Bale and Lennon, Sandro between VDV and Sigurdsson, with Walker, Kaboul, Vertonghen and BAE, seems a very strong group in front of any keeper. A few additions to the squad and we are looking pretty good, league and cups. COYS

I would also suggest that if RM offer 27M and Chelsea 40M, it would be insane not to take the extra 13M. That could represent Adebayor, Butland and Castaignos, as an example. Use the other 27M plus what we get for Pienaar to get Leandro and Perisic and we are miles ahead. COYS
peterballb
It's funny. As supporters we are deluded into thinking these feckers are with us, and support the club like we do, even when, as last close season, Modric couldn't wait to get off. Levy should have sold him then, for much more money. His performances last season did little to increase his value, and frankly, he is worth less now than then. It is NEVER worth holding on to a player who wants to leave, and the club should secure the best price, as it is axiomatic that when a player first wants to leave, it is at a time when his value is highest. By keeping him for a season, nothing has changed, his value has decreased as a result of his moderate season, and we are back at square one.

what_sux, Nice find. Not sure why Bentley got his shorts pulled up to his crotch...are they two sizes too small?...were they Modric's?!
Critical_Spur
Thanks for that, what_sux. I don't know if anyone else has noticed but Bassong looks a completely different player. He looks ready to go. I think he could be decent cover for BAE. He's strong and quick and is very powerful in the opposition box on set pieces. I would be very pleased to see him reach his potential. I like Rose, but Bassong has way more in the tank, IMO. COYS

you guys are all right in everything you have said in response to my comment, modric is a rodent face and he is a **** for wanting a transfare from a mediocre team playing thursday nights when he is world class and yes spurs finished ahead of chelsea which means they are a much better team and chelsea has spent big in this years transfare window but what else are we gonna do with all that champions league prize money? im so ashamed to be a chelsea supporter playing champions league football with a generous owner that allows us to bring in exciting world class players....but how are we screwed now that Drogba is gone? I thought he wasnt as good as Adebayor? im sure we could tempt Ade away from your club with offer of warming the bench on tuesday and wednesday nights
heart_of_blue
LJ, the reality is, the only people who live and die with the team are the supporters. Everyone else, from top to bottom, are mercenaries. Some like King, and it would seem Bale, recognize that they are very well remunerated for what they do and thus show some loyalty. For me, Bale should be the new captain. COYS

i would never sell modric to Chelsea peterballb mostly because i feel Chelsea aere a modric short from being a much much better side. ill copy an paste a comment i posted in another article an youll see why... watching chelseas preseason highlights from their game against Seattle, i feel they will suffer from the very problems i was predicting and hoping they would. defensively they are a shambles as they have too many lightweight creative players who do not do the doggywork and therefore they often leave opposition players unmarked in dangerous areas, and also do not press the opposition team, leaving space and chances for their players to create. they are also way too high up the pitch, with noone in the modric mould to pick the ball up from the back, which is a big reason to ivanovic's mistake leading to Seattle's goal. also, due to their defensive frailties, it also hinders their attacking prospects, and also have many individuals in their team who will feel they are top dogs and want to do it themselves, therefore relying on their goals to come from mistakes from the opposition or individual moments of brilliance, which wont always happen. all these points were proven in their friendly against Seattle, judging from the highlights. not a lot to go on, but we can hope nonetheless. LEDLEY KING LEGEND!!
BrooksySpurs
The truth is players who are not childhood fans of the club will never be anything more than mercenaries and its not just Modric, the owners will be only doing what's best in their business interest, and the fans(us) are the only ones who actually care about the team with the same kind of passion. 99% of players do what Modric is doing now and its the way you have to do it as a player. Do you think Silva wanted to leave Milan? No! Business is Business! Just as if we don't think the likes of Jenas, Gio, or any youth isn't good enough its a simple goodbye. Whatever is going on the fans and media have minimal information about the situation. Who knows what is said and done between Levy and Modric. Both want whats in there best interest! Levy wants money and sometimes its ridiculous amounts and Modric wants Madrid...both will get what they want probably but it is always ugly business here at WHL. Its not good coverage to get...its not nice to see players refusing to play and not when its your best and its not good to see players wanting out because ambitions arnt being met. Its a tale of two stories and I just want it resolved.

heart_of_blue- You are the apotheosis (look it up) of a Chelsea supporter.
lordjohnny
Brooksy, Chelsea have the resources to buy whomever they want. If they don't get Modric they'll buy Oscar, Moutinho and a couple more to hopefully make the difference. I'm not bothered by Chelsea or City or United as they can all just throw money at whatever ails them. 40M, if well spent, Adebayor, Castaignos, Perisic, Leandro could well address many of the issues we have. Chelsea will still have back 4 issues, will still have the same old guys issues that AVB was hired to resolve and will still have a meddling owner who, when he decides he's thrown enough money away, will leave the franchise in tatters. If RM won't stump the amount but Chelsea or City or United will, take it. These teams are not competition for players we can afford. Even if Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi were available, we couldn't afford them. That's fact, and will remain so for some time. Same goes for Arsenal who cannot afford Van Persie or Fabregas or Nasri. It's why our focus must be on youth, development and scouting. The next Modric and Berbatov are affordable. It's just a matter of identifying those players. Not easy, but it can be done. COYS

Ledley King wasn`t loyal ,he was injured .Without the injuries King would have gone years ago .
King stayed because he loves us ? Get real ,King stayed because he was too much of a risk for bigger clubs to sign him .I respect what he did for us over the years but make no mistake ,he done very well out of Spurs .

how do you post an article on here?? i cant seem to find an option to do it!
marcusbluespurs
Raging, I don't believe as this is ugly business. It's just business. At least this year we know that a price has been set. If met, he will go. I wish Levy had just done that last season. Don't worry about sell-ons. If a non PL team wants him, the price is 40M. If a PL team wants him, it is more. 40M and Sturridge and Chelsea can have him (doesn't have to be Sturridge, just an example). The position just needed to be clear to Modric last season so that he and everyone interested would know the cost. If no one wants to fork up the loot, there is no deal. COYS
peterballb
I do think the way we try and play hard ball with our transfer targets has come to bite us in the butt with the Modric saga. For years now Levy has tried signing top players but offers millions under their value and now Madrid are playing us at our own game.

Modric has gone too far this time. His presence at training ground, if that ever happens again, will only serve to bring down a group of players that are enjoying a good time. Selling the rodent for the right price is what Levy mist do now. I am 100% behind Daniel on this. If Madrid insists on only GBP 27MM, then get it down to GDP 15MM plus Ozil and we are done. By the way, nice reception our CLub had in Los Angeles airport. Have you seen the footage ??
AlexSpur
I think our lack of moving players is more complicated than that. Pav could have gone. Harry said no. Keane, Bentley were on unaffordable wages. Crouch was too so we had to basically pay him to leave. We'll know once this window closes if the issue was Harry or Levy. If there remains no dead wood other than a couple of younger players on PL loans (ie Rose, Townsend etc) then it's all on Harry. I don't remember Ramos or Jol having lots of extra senior players hanging around, do you? COYS

Not many of our players really love the club but Im ok with that its just the way it is but if they leave then do it in a way that shows some dignity and respect. I dont hate Modric but to me his a player already forgotten.
MrSpurs
BigC, on King, I do not think that is fair. Even injured, other clubs would have taken a shot if they thought he was available. Neither he nor his agent ever made any rumblings. Not to get more pay or to try to get out. He is a long way from a model citizen, but as a Spurs player, he has been as loyal as any. COYS

Not sure all the deadwood is down to Harry. He did not sign Pav, Bentley or JJ. But I do think we drive too hard a deal with regards to the buying and selling of our players. We will never recoup our money back on the deadwood and at some point we have to take a loss. I hope that there is money put away for new players and we are not waiting on the Modric money coming in. How can we put a massive price tag on Modric and the want to get Porto to drop loads of money off the price they value Moutinho.
nothappyharry
Just a theory guys and obviously not as exciting as the press stories or all this hating of modric. However, do you all think modric should be in the USA? Exactly, we are selling him, avb said so and so, why would we risk him getting injured and why would we want to plan for the season with him? Same as pienaar, at home to be sold - but of course, that wouldn't sell papers or undermine our positivity would it. Ffs

Not sure that it really means much, but I just returned from Canada after a phenomenal holiday, and had a chance to go watch Vancouver White Caps vs LA Galaxy...the first time I had ever seen Bekham play live, and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere was fairly decent for a sold out 30,000 stadium. Galaxy got completely outrun by Vancouver, Robbie Keane was useless, just chasing the game; Bekham tried his best to run the game, was close to being the best player on their side, his passing and crossing was always dangerous, Donovan did bugger all. Vancouver have Y.P. Lee at left back who looks comfortable and is enjoying his football once more after Spurs. Barry Robson in attacking midfield for Vancouver was a joy to watch, the biggest threat to LA and should have scored a few. Ended 2-2 but Vancouver should have run away with it. I'm sure LA will be tough for us, but I think we are strong enough to beat them, even if it is just a friendly.

you fans make me laugh, he came here already established, thats why he chose spurs, he had the chance to start... just let him go, you guys sound like spoiled children, u know hes bettter off at madrid, just let it be, he gave all while he was here
tonkybbb
The mistake that Modric did initially, from his point of view was he signed a very long contract. I know he wanted the pay rise. With 4 long years left on his contract, Levy hold all the bargaining power. Levy imo is fully entitled to expect appropriate renumeration for one of our best players at current market rates. Again, he is one of our best players. I know at Madrid, he may be on the bench but that's not our problem. This situation is less than ideal but I'll trust Levy to do the right thing by us. COYS!!!

Taxi, glad to hear you enjoyed your trip in Canada. I take it you were on the West coast. It is very beautiful. I hope to be in London at the end of August for my 10th Anniversary. I see Liverpool drew with Toronto FC. They are awful. Watching them is tedious. Having watched Beckham play dozens of times for the Galaxy, he is almost always a class above. The pace isn't there, but just like in the EPL he's quick enough and the crossing and dead ball ability is second to none in MLS. Keane is worn and tired. He just doesn't have it any more. YP Lee looks to have the same tenacity and surprisingly good timing and positioning for one who seemed so far away from the limelight. MLS, for me, still has a long way to go. They are mid-season so it will be a tough match for Spurs on the conditioning side, but the skill level is not even close. Beckham on the same side as Bale and BAE does not sound like a fair fight. COYS
peterballb
BigC, look, I don't hold many athletes out to be anything more than mercenaries. They are all much more concerned about their own well being and comfort than anything else. (very few exceptions - Jim Brown and a few others) And, truth be told, that applies to most people in modern society. I am not naive. King, as far as my recollection goes, did not, at any time, make waves at Spurs. IMO, he fully deserved to be captain and seemed to be respected by his teammates. Was he one of the best Spurs of all time? Hard to make any determination because he didn't play long enough and as you rightly point out, he didn't win very much. He may well be the best CB I have seen play in a Spurs shirt and, on his day, was as good as any of his contemporaries. His timing and reading of the game was as good as I have seen. This past season, his lack of playing started to work against him. He was a shell of his former self. Much of what he has done off the pitch does not really make me think he is exceptional as a human being. That said, in a Spurs shirt, he was golden and I do believe he could have played elsewhere if he had so desired. My opinion. I hear what you are saying. I am just unwilling to take away the benefit of the doubt from him on the loyalty side. He could easily have signed on with another team this year and cashed in some more. He didn't. I hope that he has less of a tough time of it than others, like Bobby Orr, who have had to retire early because of knee, head and back issues. These can be so debilitating. I wish him well and thank him for everything he has done in a Spurs shirt. I have never questioned his allegiance to the club. COYS

All the way through this thread anyone who is naturally *****ed at modric is getting slated! I DONT CARE THAT HE'S LEAVING IT'S THE WAY HE'S GONE ABOUT BUSINESS SINCE RELEASING A STATEMENT EXPRESSING HIS DESIRE TO LEAVE WITHIN HOURS OF THE FIRST DEROGATIVE CHELSEA BID! He has no class and screws our negotiating position
spurticus87
From the potential future signings out there Spurs are looking like slave drivers and Levy like a pri*k....this whole situation has not done Spurs any favours and whoever Levy tries to sign in the future he would be down right the stupidest fu*k in the world if he agrees to sign a long term deal with us. Players around the world have seen the Modric saga unfold and will be making sure it does not happen to them by avoiding spurs or protecting themselves rigorously in any contracts they do sign with us. So long term = failure for Levy
SsSpurSs
Ssspurss then why has bale signed a contract extension? Kinda blows that theory out of the water, siggy, adebayor and vertoghen and the young united left back, all foreign 3 are young and had several offers available! Levy = winner, spurs just want a decent price but modders screws us over by trying to force th transfer through after the first bid regardless of how DEROGATIVE! 22mill last season? If an out of form Torres is worth 50 mil and a 29 yr old RSVP with 12 months left on his contract is valued at 30 million modric is at the very very least worth 35 million! imagine the message levy sends out abou player power and big clubs bullying us into selling our best players cheap if he caves? The strength in which he's playing our hand should be admired after all I'd rather be seen as to tough than weak and modric has forced it so tey are our only 2 options
spurticus87
If anyone is going to sign a 5 to 6 years contract, then they better know it is a binding agreement on both parties. We have Dos Santos and Jenas sponging off us for years now because of their contract. Why should Modric be any different in the reverse situation? No doubt Levy is a tough negotiator and probably told Modric 2 years ago that he can get a pay rise provided he signs on the dotted line for 6 years contract. So Modric got his pay rise. Now as stated by many here, there is 4 years left to run on the contract and really Levy hold all the cards and if Modric is not happy, then tough ti**ties.

Having said all that, I hope we get our 30+ mil and cut ties. He is going to give out negative vibes when he returns and we do not need that. A bit like the Van Persie situation here though not as bad i think but it is very disappointing when a player craps on his team to get a move on. Very disrespectful.

WestStandEnclosure
Players only care about two things.

Playing time - Mostly desired by the younger generation in order to build up a reputation. It ofcourse helps them solidify a place in their national side, allows progression and leads to bigger pay packets upon their development.

The otherside of this is also the competitions in which a club competes in. Playing time in the Champions league will obviously be more attractive than Europe league but ofcourse this is sought after by the older generation who have already made a name for themselves or wish to prove they can still mix it with the big boys.

Money - Mostly desired by the older generation, but ofcourse desired by those youngsters who have proven themselves from a young age. Player's like RVP are a prime example of a player looking for his last pay packet. Extremely common when a player turns 30 as we saw with Dimitar Berbatov. Never expect one of these players to take a pay-cut in order to gain playing time. Most would happily play out their existing contract sitting on the bench providing the salary is higher.

Modric is in the money grabber category as of now. If Spurs offered him 180k a week, he wouldn't blink an eyelid at Madrid or Chelsea. Trohpies are just for show, money talks.
RyanHotSpur
It is comments like Spurious Life that really grate my nerves. to rephrase your comment .. ( if levy was a gentleman, he would fully understand that modric signed that extension with a GENTLEMAN's agreement that he would be allowed to leave at a price that would be beneficial to the club). No you did not respect his wish to leave last summer neither did you appreciate it. ( you locked him down against his wish even when you have an offer that tripled his sign on fees). You shafted him first forced him to remain where he did not want too and you complain about his selfish attitude. I ve got a question for you/.... What kind of attitude do you use to describe someone who broke a gentleman's agreement...???? Betrayer, Back Stabber. If Modric behaved like a spoilt child, Levy behaved like a dishonourable man, a cheat who went back on an agreement. Go ahead and make an example of him, stuck him in the reserves for the entire season and the next year offer him to any club around for 40m.
Dwonder
Dwonder - Carlos Tevez
RyanHotSpur
Let's just state the facts rather than speculate about such things as a "gentlemans agreement"

Chelsea display interest in Modric in the Media spotlight (tapping up?). Spurs refuse any approach from Chelsea to negotiate a price. Modric displays his dissapointment in the media. Modric and Levy have a meeting in which a payrise is agreed and a contract is extended. (This is not a gentlemans agreement, it is a payrise in return for longer loyalty). Real Madrid display interest in Modric through Media (tapping up yet again). Modric throws toys out of pram.

Why should this scenario be seen in any other light than Modric being a pain in the backside? He is repeating Carlos Tevez's actions at Man City and i believe we should treat the situation the exact same way City did. I admire them for the way they handled Tevez and continually fined him and went through court allegations to prove that the player is not bigger than the club. The club should never be bullied by the players because this is exactly what sets a bad example. If players sign contracts at Spurs expecting not to see them out and just use us as a stepping stone, i'd rather them not be here, so if we have a reputation for making sure our legally binding contracts are adhered to, i'd much prefer that.
RyanHotSpur
Well AVB is going to clear things up in a press conference today so that'll end any doubt over what's going on. The BBC are reporting that he's going to be fined so I'd say that is proof enough that the guys been playing up but for those who refuse to believe AVB will soon tell you the extent of Modric's unprofessional behavior.

Quit with this gentleman's agreement debate, it's quite clear. We had an agreement to sell if a bigger club came calling which is why we were able to happily turn down Chavski but had to enter negotiations with Madrid, we've kept our word.
Spurs Allday
You need to look at it from the prospective of "potential buyers" aswell. Modric is also tarnishing his own reputation by refusing to train and most likely refusing to play. Will Real Madrid tolerate such things if they are to sign him and refuse any of his demands later down the line?

I'd much rather Spurs be known for standing their ground and looking out for the best interests in the club, which is a reasonable transfer fee or no sale of our most prized asset.

If Modric cannot appreciate this and refuses to train/play to the best of his ability, it will only be his reputation that suffers. Balotelli, Tevez, Barton and Bellamy aren't the most sought after players even though their abilities should say otherwise.
RyanHotSpur
Spurs Allday - If anything was agreed it would have been written into his new contract. If i promised you 100,000GBP if you played football with me tomorrow, would you not rather that be put in writing?

If Levy said anything at all, it was most likely "We will sell if the right club offers the right money". It's varely rare that a manager/chairman will give anything more than that away even to the players.
RyanHotSpur
I think if such things were discussed, Modric would have arranged a buyout clause with the club upon his contract extension.

Ryan yup ;-)
Spurs Allday
Ryan in all seriousness though I completely agree with you if he wants a release clause he should have got it in writing, after all that's what agents are for. Any criticism should really be directed at the incompetence of his agent not Levy.
Spurs Allday
Spurs Allday - Yeh definitely. I mean the only way i can see this "gentlemans agreement" taking form is if Levy agreed to sell but refused to allow Modric to leave for a PL club. Even then i'm sure something could be drafted to state minimum buyout clause of 35mil excluding PL clubs. Modric is simply doing a Tevez and he should expect the same treatment if he continues.
