Deadline Day Debate!

Deadline Day Debate!

Bentley, Jenas, Townsend, Hudd and maybe a few more out! But Who in?

According to some, buying or not buying a new striker will define our season. Perhaps that will prove correct, but today will certainly define how we perceive this months transfer activity and perhaps also allow us to review the direction of AVB and ambition of Mr Levy and whether we really can achieve another top four place.

Of course we shouldn't discount what other clubs do and as a result how this will possibly affect ours and others seasons. We could be quite happy with our spending, but if Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool or Everton buy and sell better, and we back to the drawing board before out players have been paraded in their new shirts..

ughh, haven't liverpool already bought well? sturridge and coutinho and I seem to recall Chelski already bought 90% of the worlds AM's in the summer but have added Ba this window. Arse have kept Walcott and their summer signing Giroud is now bedding in....where's our summer signing? oh he's at a tourny that's only be arranged since before he signed....we had no way of knowing that we'd be left without a striker....(sarcasm)We've already cocked up we're out of the FA cup and dropped league points but hey all's well we don't need anyone....

I think we will get our wish, but I don't know who it will be! I can see Hudd leaving, and if we can move out one of jenas, bentley and gomes as well than a bonus! I think we may see another midfielder come in, as well as a striker. ***** it, I reckon Levy will have us all fooled and we'll see Moutinho, Negredo and Damaio!

Really interesting report coming out of Portugal this morning - Moutinho is now 100% owned by Porto. No third party ownership. Surely they have done this so recoup and incoming transfer fee?

I always wonder if there will be a shock signing or sale on the last day. for example, if we bought Diame and kept Livermore, would we allow Parker to leave for £5m+?

I'd still keep parker Ox, even if he only plays 1 in 3. tho he might not be as good as last year, he brings so much to the dressing room and training. trust whatever AVB allows though.

"Tom Huddlestone will look to secure an overseas loan move this week with the French, Russian and Turkish windows still open for incoming transfers.The Tottenham midfielder wants regular first-team football as he seeks to complete his recovery from a recalcitrant ankle problem. While Benfica inquired about Huddlestone's availability to replace the outgoing Javi Garcia last week and agreed financial terms on a season-loan with Tottenham, the Portuguese club failed to complete the deal. The French and Turkish transfer windows remain open until Wednesday, Russia's until Friday."

I have to say that is we don't buy one striker and one midfield player (not the usual last minute desparation signings) then it will be clear that the owners have no ambition for the football club being successful) and only care about lining their own profits). peterbalb has quoted here several times in his excellent posts that the club is now worh upwards of £500m. If that is the case, thne surely £25m on a couple of players is not too much to ask. They would be investments, it is not as though the money is written off. COYS

Can't wait to see Leandro and Moutinho holding up their shirts tomorrow...we all know we're an ambitious club that finished top4 for two out of three years, sacked our manager so we could bring in the best young manager around and will back him....he only wants players Leandro, Moutinho and Willian....well it looks like willian is off to Russia but two out of three ain't bad...is it?....;)

For all of the doom and gloom accountants on Vital Spurs can they please explain to me how Everton WHO ARE A WHOLE LOT MORE SKINT THAN US are willing and able to spend £8.5m on NEGREDO (yes that is the Negredo we were 'apprently' going to buy) and they will still be in business . I keep getting told that f we spend money in the region of £10m then we're likely to go bust and disappear from the footballing landscape. What a load of fecking old tosh. Everton have ambition and an owner that is passionate about his club, understands that if you want to be a serious PL team you HAVE to be in the CL and he is also supportive of his manager. We, on the other hand, have ENIC! Go on Levy prove me wrong! I live in doubt!

I agree that I would like to keep Parker, but if we needed to generate funds to bring in someone like Moutinho, then I could see someone extablished being sacrificed and at 32, you wonder if Levy and AVB would sanction his sale, especially if we were able to get a replacement

JJ and Bentley due to have medicals at QPR this morning apparently! ignoring them as individual players, but QPR are taking one hell of a gamble with their spending. Crouch @5m, Samba @ 10m+ and these lads will want a fortune in wages, with Samba apparently being offered 100k a week. What happens if they go down? even if they stay up, their wage bill will be unsustainable you imagine

"The transaction values Moutinho at €22million, some €8m less than the total value of the deal FC Porto agreed with Tottenham for the Portugal international last transfer deadline day. That proposed transfer ultimately fell through because of errors in the paperwork submitted by Porto, with Tottenham earlier meeting problems satisfying terms demanded by Moutinho's agents. Senior sources at Tottenham have said that it would be 'impossible' for the Premier League club to sign Moutinho in the current window."

SpuriousLife, Typical totally unfair anti ENIC post! How can you compare Everton to us! We may have two share holders on the THFC board who are worth a combined 4.5 billion, but if we were to spend over £10m or heaven forbid £20m on a striker we really could do a Leeds United! So stop moaning guys! This is Danny Boy's big day, remember! It's what he live for, the big THFC Ebay bargain basement, countdown... He doesn't know who he's going to sign quite yet, cause there's only 16 hours to go... Be patient guys, a lot can go through our DOF'S mind in those last few minutes of the window as he scans the bargain basement up date list... There still could be a bargain basement bargain to be had at the very last second! Look guys we may be out of the title race and both domestic Cups by January because Levy refused to buy AVB the striker and play maker he wanted in the summer, (for Leeds United reasons) but show faith guys, it's only been 13 seasons, 8 coaches, 3 DOF's and over 100 players bought. I know Danny has the worst trophy per season percentage record of any THFC chairman in over half a century, has only made the CL once in 13 seasons, and has never reached an FA Cup final, but show some faith! And as for you 35,000 Spurs waiting on Danny Boys season ticket waiting list, for Christ sake stop moaning. Rome wasn't built in an ENIC day... Sorry for the kind of re post guy. I though peter would appreciate it more here when he wakes up...

have said for some time, that Gallas would be a brilliant and sensible short term buy for Villa. problem is that I am not sure we would let him leave at this time without a replacement. I assume he would be 5th pick once Kaboul is back, but what happens if Kaboul suffers a set back and we are left with 3 CBs?

They way QPR are apparently hoovering up all and sundry (hopefully including Jenas and Bentley which is amazing if it happens) I can understand why Levy would not back HR in the last few transfer windows. He is dangerously offering over-inflated contracts to under-talented players. However AVB is the complete opposite to Redknapp so Levy YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE. Either spend or accept the title of being a little, bald, tight-fisted accountant.
