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

One Stop Nonsense Shop..

Right, let's start by saying what most of us are probably already aware of, it's Friday, get in there!!

Another thing that most of us are probably already aware of, is that Paulinho is in London (arrived this morning) and he is due to undergo a medical this morning, sign a 4 year deal (according to reports in Brazil), then meet up with AVB this afternoon, Get in there again :) !!

As it stands, we seem a bit short of ITK, so I might as well throw in a bit of breaking news about a rival PL club.

Latest transfer news... Cavani spotted at West Ham!

Oh, no, sorry, Caravan, a caravan was spotted at west ham.....

So, back to us. There was a rumour circulating that 'pirate obsessed' Osvaldo was/is a target for us & a delegate from Roma had come to London for talks with us and Man City, do I believe it? Not really.. Would he be of use to us, in my opinion, absolutely, I think he'd become a bit of a 'cult hero' amongst the WHL faithful, due to the fact that he's a VERY emotional fella who well and truly wears his heart on his sleeve. Not only is he a more than decent goal-scorer, he can also play the wide attacking role too. Not to mention, if we get the record breaking Spanish international striker we've been chasing, we would once again have an 'Ossie & Villa partnership' at THFC. What's not to like about that? :).

It's also worth pointing out that, back in May, one of the ITK's (I can't remember which one) said, 'it will be like summer 78 again'. Oooh!!

Anything else I can waffle on about? Well ! it's me, so of course there is ;)..

Portuguese newspaper 'Record' says Porto are now eager to sell winger 'Christian Atsu', who is keen on leaving for free at the end of the season if they don't transfer him now. Liverpool and Tottenham have supposedly held tentative talks with Porto about Atsu this summer, with the winger declaring hopes of moving to the Premier League in recent weeks... Worth a butchers?

Well, that's a nice stroke of luck. Whilst typing out this epic piece of nonsense, some shiny new ITK has come in, so what w wonderful way to finish :)...

Suprised no one linked to Byram from Leeds i would say he is wortha punt for us and shouldnt be too expensive either. Pauliniho done yet??? COYMFS!!!
JattYid
About time coops been waiting for ages for another thread of nonsense makes my day at work go quicker....
spurs2468
HA HA Coops I thought the caravan was at QPR for old Pikey.
chrishove123
Hey Coops I'm sure I put a link up a day or three back about Villa coming here. It was in the guardian about it and they are usually pretty much on the ball. Also how come Southampton can afford to get Damiao yet we can't get him. Something pretty odd there methinks.
chrishove123
Atsu would be well worth pursuing. Probably 5M GBP ought to do it. He'll be free in a year. Even if we just signed he and Villa up top, it would mean we could choose any three of Ade, Bale, Villa, Atsu, Lennon up top. Atsu, Bale and Villa can play anywhere across the top. Ade could probably too, although width would be compromised. Lennon can play either wing. Atsu would cost half of what Ince would and has a hiher upside (though I believe Ince is better suited to the EPL at this time). COYS
peterballb
Chrishove - don't worry about the Damiao to Southampton nonsense. It's just his agent trying to give us a nudge to say if we don't make a move soon he'll go somewhere else. As far as I'm concerned Southampton are welcome to him. He and his representatives have messed us around for so long that a spell at Southampton is what they deserve. I'm going to stick my neck out and say that by the end of this transfer window we will have signed two strikers - Villa and Lamela. I hope I'm right!
SpuriousLife
Damn you Coopsie, just when I'd posted a humourous comment at the end of Muttley's excellent Tighten up article you go and post another wonderful nonsense article and turn all other threads into tumble weed infested ghost towns. Grrr! Still Paulinho getting stretched on the rack and a new spanish house on the way . Three more signings for me - Another striker, LB and winger. Then soem hard truths for the current squad as they are moved on and a few young up and coming diamonds would make this the perfect summer. Didi we ever make an offer for that giant american goalie kid?
Slurms McKenzie
Cheers Coops

Osvaldo would be an infectious player alright (not the knob falling off kind) he would be a bit of a pain up front too for defenders, and would really give everything and more for the cause. He is a good player, not the most technical of forwards but get the job done with pest like commitment. I would say yes to him. Probability 4/10

Villa, well this needs to happen for a few reasons. 1. AVB wants him bad it seems. 2. Raises the profile. 3. will do a good job for us in a formation he will understand what is needed of him. 4. look on Gooner faces when he belts a couple past 'em.
ledgespur
Ledgespur - I've clearly missed something in all the transfer who-ha, which of our players had his John Thomas fall off?
Slurms McKenzie
I read that Liverpool were in the running for Villa. I just laughed. We know what happens when Spurs and Liverpool are after the same player hehe...
asherthesmasher
Getting in a winger would be a good move, Atsu looks alright and so does the Belgian Chadli.
canadianspur
Do we really want another Jessy at Spurs? I thought we were trying to offload them, not bring more in!

OK, I've repeated the joke, I'll get my coat.

Spuds-U-Like
Coopsie if he's as good as you describe (I know, as others have described and you've passed on) then hell yes I'm interested. Bernard was the stand out player for Brazil at the Confed cup (Neymar only met expectations!) and was a real game changer for them. He would have been the ideal signing for us this window so any similarly talented players would be welcome.
Slurms McKenzie
I think that we are after Villa because he is prolific. He is imo, the best finisher in the game and you don't need pace to do that. He may have lost a yard, but he will get us over 15 goals if he stays fit. In the 4-3-3 formation, he can drift a little anyway, so it will be kinder on his legs.
asherthesmasher
@ Slurms..lol. Well i was just trying to say Osvaldo is an infectious player. But wouldn't cause any outbreaks of anything suspect in the dressing room...i hope!
ledgespur
Lol Ledge, I can imaging Defoe going to his local genitourinary clinic with a severe dose of the Osvaldos...!
Slurms McKenzie
Seems to be Benteke is taking the lead for us behind all the smoke screens....anything on this Coops?
ledgespur
No need to say sorry Coopsie look forward to these nonsense articles as i have no idea other than VS on were to find transfer gossiReally hope we sign David Villa would be gutted if that one slipped away especially as the Arse seem to have signed the star striker
spurs2468
I work for a betting shop and we have gone 4/6 benteke joining but pushed villa out the other way
waztap
Coopsie I also find it quite daft that agents / players enter into negotiations with clubs who aren't in the champions league then express doubt about a deal because the club aren't in the champions league. I would take a different view of it - we haven't met Villa or his agents personal terms and they are looking for a way out with out appearing like like very expensive money grabbers. Not looking good IMO.
Slurms McKenzie
Miralem Pjanic any more on this one, Roma, Baldini, THFC, playmaker, be right up our street. Dembele is good, but my worry is this hip problem coming back. We used to get linked with William, Moutinho, happy days, looking likely we will get our ho in paulinho.
spu 4 life
The Pjanic rumour just doesn't make sense to me. We have our starting three (when fit) In Sandro, Paulinho and Dembele. How would we fit Pjanic in except as cover. We then still have, Siggy, Holtby, Livermore and carrol as cover. Prehaps Pjanic is just an iron in the fire until Paulinho passes the medical and is an offical Spurs player?
Slurms McKenzie
Perhaps Paulinho is being readied to be paraded in the new strip on Monday?

There is often a lot of mindless twaddle passing as articles but congratulations Coopsieyid I found your piece refreshing and the caravan was a good start.

Jesé Rodriguez, I mentioned him in the previous article, I remember last summer there were stories concerning his future as well, and I was thinking then AVB sign him!. I think he is worth a punt.
SpurInSpain
Coops- Benteke...no worries fella.
ledgespur
coops,thanks again for the article....like the way you keep changing the headline but it seems to remain the same.....pjanics a funny one ,cant really see this and i thought aston villa said benteke wasnt for sale at any price
rovinella62spurs
Pjanic, was seriously good at Lyon and he has done very well in Seria A, has the game 100% to adapt to any system IMO. I have to echo others though in saying where? On the left maybe, but won't that be Villas baby if he comes, Maybe this is plan B or plan A after plan B (villa) went wrong....my head hurts!! :-(

So it could be Villa/Pjanic Ade/Benteke/Leandro/Soldado, Bale. This should be who it is down to know for our front 3.......Hoping.
ledgespur
If we do get another 'Ossie & Villa partnership' at THFC, at his age, let's hope Villa's knees don't go all trembley. Come on you Spurs
In-spurs-ational
Have we signed anybody yet? :-)
Hot_Spur
I imagine Paulinho confirmation won't be until Monday now. Unlikely over weekend, no site staff on duty.
Hot_Spur
I have always been of the belief that the deal of Pulinho and Villa will be announced on monday along with the new kit and news of Bale's new deal. What better way for the club, UA to get the most exposure possible. I had read that Bale was to be front and centre of this year's promos for UA and that he was now UA's boot endorser. This stuff does not all happen in a vacuum. Timing is everything. If they also announce Jedvaj and Halilovic, I may well have to excuse myself from my duties and go and have a pint or two. COYS
peterballb
My thoughts exactly regarding the timings peter
jljyid
coopsieyid-thanks for that info regarding 100mil to improve local area. It all sounds complicated but surely if agreements were made in Feb that cannot be broken! Needless to say there always seems to be problems regarding getting our new stadium and it makes you wonder why! Lets hope it gets sorted asap.

Back to transfers, it seems to be taking a long time to get Paulinho through a medical. Would have thought we would have had an announcement today if he is having his medical morning. Mind you there are website technicalities.
< br>The news about the Croatians appears to have gone quiet as well.

Being a Spurs fan can test the patience of the most patient people lol
thfan
You're nt going to parade guys out in old kits, especially for deals that have been done for some time. Until all the paperwork goes through and the respective organizations approve the deals, they are not done. The Paulinho deal has been mentioned by enough people directly involved to suggest it is done (but for any technicalities - ie medical issues etc). I'm not sweating Paulinho and believe Villa is also done. You don't show up and check out a training facility for giggles. Barcelona's development program is not exactly crap. If Villa has been around as has been reported, it's all agreed, but for the necessary ok's and the announcement, which was always going to coincide with the kit launch. I also think that the bactracking by the Gm as regards Jedvaj and Halilovic was more about propriety, than anything else. The first signings by Baldini have to be Paulinho and Villa with DL announcing the new contract for Bale and the new kits. Perfect Storm - NO??????? COYS
peterballb
According to latest reports, the Villa deal ISN'T done. He's moaning about spurs not having CL football.
Hot_Spur
if it's their tottenham...then they can clean the place up themselves...parasites.
shedboy2
HS just another media initiative to sell papers/news (which isn't). Believe half of what you read, read it again and do the same, read it again and so on until you believe nothing printed!! When they appear in the Shirt on our site...Done deal!!!
jvd
Does anyone really believe that David Villa did not know that we had not qualified for CL? Come on folks. Absurd. There are no guarantees until it's announced on the broken site, but still, all of these recent comments are made up of nothing. People complain how we chased Leandro window after window. True, but not really. Inquiries were no doubt made but the only window where offers were actually submitted, accepted and where the player and his agent were allowed to be talked to was the January window. It's like all the Bale crap. Where has he said anything beyond, he is happy at Spurs and one day, would like to play abroad. I'm not going to guarantee that Villa is done (I don't know). Harry seems to think so. It seems he was at the training facility (odd summer destination for a family holiday) and AVB has reportedly spoken with him. Seems a lot of odd coinkidinks all at the same time. There is smoke. COYS
peterballb
Much like Paulinho. If people had bothered to read, (Monday or Tuesday) there were reports that the medical would be taking place at the end of the week. Yet people are still looking to see what could possibly go wrong. He is reportedly in town for the medical. Kit launch is Monday. Why are they being silent? You don't stick mugs in front of the camera in old kits when the signings are of this proportion. Paulinho is one of the top young MF'ers in the world. David Villa (the Count as I call him) is one of the most recognized football faces out there. You don't do these sorts of deals without the appropriate fanfare. DN, ENIC, Bale, UA and HP will all want the Spus frenzy to build consistently until we are in Asia and then hope to sprinboard off of that. I can't speak for UA's Spurs numbers, but I do know that Spurs merchandise was available in NA markets where I have not seen anything since the 70's. I can go to Sportchek right now and buy last year's away kit (home has been sold out for some time). Until this past season, my choice was, website or pay double for a sports store to buy it online and then sell it to me. Levy has done very well with UA and both UA and Bale will be making a lot of money because of each other this year. The launch is a big deal and it will come with a fair share of fanfare. COYS
peterballb
Oh yeah, and Bale is just back from his holiday in Spain this weekend. So many coinkidinks. Can't have a launch without the face of the franchise. COYS
peterballb
Probably tour of London for Paulinho and Villa tomorrow and then a trip to Wimbledon to watch Murray in the final on Sunday with photo shots in between in the new kit and a good old get together with the new lads as well ready for the launch and announcements Monday then :-)

muttley - Even better is that now L'pool can't get him, they were trying according to reports.
Hot_Spur
True hotspur. I am finding interesting this window as we seem to have a clear idea of how we are going to shape the team and it just feels good to see my/our club with purposeful direction. I haven't felt this before. It's also nice because our rivals don't seem to have the same focus. Is it just me?
jljyid
Regards Paulinho, let's consider the medical is done and dusted, afternoon looking over the training ground, what he also needs is a place to live, so he might just be viewing a few houses over the weekend, buying a jam jar to get him around, have a meal over at Sandro's or maybe a ruby, couple of san miguel light's or orange juice, just chilling out. All will come good aka monday

yes he is a lazy long streak of pi$$... but for 5m... what will we get..

For Ade to leave anyway it means we are close or the deal has been done for his replacement...

Defoe is next....

Higuan should have been the one... hope LeArse fall flat on there faces on that one... But i dont see Perez letting us have him.. but for 22million that is being quoted its a no-brainer....

Tx Coops, haven't been on the site since November, when everyone was stressing about Ade going to ACN. I said then that Bale would move to a central posi behind striker. boy did I get shot down on this site for that. Guess I was very wrong on that call. just been a reader. No one else seems to want Villa, so I hope that ones been settled. Health wise Coops, u recovered?
10iscoach
HIGH Magic is not a goon, he's a chav, (although he is a goon by nature, just not an Arsenal fan). He's bitter and jealous that we got Paulinho and Chelsea didn't when they tried a year ago. Check out his idiotic comments about Paulinho on VC, you'll see what I mean.
Hot_Spur
10iscoach, I do not have any inside information. I just look at all the information and make informed assumptions. Paulinho, the reports came from almost all of the parties involved. DL is very tight lipped, so rarely do you get info from our side directly. Corinthians, Paulinho and his agent had all said, done deal. Villa, there are not as many close sources, but there are an awful lot of people who are respected and in the know saying it is done, including Harry, who just can't say no to a microphone. Villa, 8.6M GBP and I would not be shocked to see it announced shortly after the new gear is announced. I also suspect as there will be a triple photo at some point next week with Bale, Paulinho and Villa. What better way for UA to get in to two more markets where there is lots of room to grow (Spain and Brasil) and then springboarding it in to Asia with the Asia Cup. Villa is not a guarantee, but I have not seen anything credible suggesting that there is another team out there looking for him. Fact is, on Chelsea, ManU, City, and even Arsenal, he will not be first choice. With Spurs and a probable 4-3-3, he will get a lot of playing time and with UA, he may well be able to up his endorsements. Let's face it, Villa is a worldwide figure in a year leading up to a WC. So is Paulinho. Bale is the rising star. I would suggest, in this case, it is not too good to be true, it is damned obvious and if they are not doing it, they should all be shot. THat said, if there is an issue, I'm sure it is in the finagling of the fee. In this case (I support it 95% of the time), Levy, just get it done. COYS
peterballb
Coopsie, I agree 100% with you. Sell Ade and buy Rebic. Huge wage savings, he can play now. Sell Hudd and Parker. Wage difference and fees will cover Paulinho. Still have not spent a cent of the 50M. Wages of Gallas, Jenas, Bentley are already gone. Further large savings. Probably 8M per year. It looks like Gomes too will be sold, though he has consistently referred to we and us when talking about Paulinho coming to Spurs. Odd, if one were on the way out. Then again, he is an odd duck. I would love to see us drop the pursuit of the names in the press and go and get Dzagoev and Doumbia. Both would probably cost 40M. We could probably get 15M back for Defoe and Dempsey. I also love the idea of the two Croatian kids as they represent the future and would both be homegrown. I'd go get Cesar, Umtiti, Lombaerts and Castaignos, sell Gomes, Townsend, Rose, BAE, Obika and Kane. Call it a day. Probably the full 50M spent and then some, but we'd be in great shape for the future and our wage bill would likely be reduced. We'd have also built in replacements for Bale (if he decides to go play abroad) with still Pritchard and McEvoy to develop (both will be better than Townsend, IMO). With this level of talent at Spurs, there is every reason to believe we could be in the reckoning to win the League for the next 5-10 seasons. COYS

norwichspur
Yea well, we all know what Marca are like, could be bollox
Hot_Spur
LB, from what seems to be out there , may well be Lombaerts as he has one year left in his contract. I would also strongly suggest Espinoza. Watched him in MLS and I thought he was very good for Wigan. Would be inexpensive. Goes forward well and is positionally sound. Also, is left footed. Lombaerts can play either CB role or LB so great cover.

I don't see how any sponsor would mind being associated with an International star like Villa, the dauphin, Bale, and a Brazilian star like Paulinho when the World Cup will be in Brazil. How does that not equate to more traffic and exposure? COYS

Hello guys, i have not really paid any attention to soccer, EVER. I live in the Philippines and its main sport is Basketball... But since my father showed me how great playing and supporting this type of sport. I got to like it, maybe even LOVE it... Hope you guys keep supporting Tottenham Hotspur, and wish all the best to the new player Paulinho. :D

My interpretation of that google translated pigeon English is that Ade wants to talk to AVB about his future at spurs (if he has one) before committing to a transfer.

coops - Actually it isn't called "footbal, that's an "adopted" name, soccer is it's correct name.
Hot_Spur
Just looked it up, correct name is "Association football", I always though soccer was the original name but apparently that name arose later. Apologies coops.

More rumblings this morning that spurs still haven't made a bid for David Villa.
Hot_Spur
It's only the USA that call it soccer Hot, to differentiate it from their own football mate. It's always been Association Football shortened to just football.

If this is true, Levy is up to his tricks again, risking losing the player to another club. AVB will be well pleased !! http://sportwitness.ning.com/forum/topics/tottenham-have-offered-way-below-10m-for-david-villa-and-barca-ar
Hot_Spur
coops - As I said above, if the Villa story is true Levy is taking a big risk. Villa is well worth 10 mill Euros, not just on the pitch but all the off the pitch benefits of such a high profile player. If Levy p1sses about too long another club might jump in and offer the 10 mill Euros. I can believe the story is true, it's a typical Levy stunt.
Hot_Spur
copps - Yes I understand we would be aware of other interested parties, they doesn't guarantee that nobody will suddenly become interested though, it's a risk. Oh well, I guess were in for the usual Levy last minute deal on that one.

Hey Coopsieyid, just to let u know Hotspur Lover is my son.... we live in the Philippines and these guys here just love basketball. I introduced him to football (he still calls it soccer) but I am getting there...... Looks like his fav player might be our latest signing, Paulinho.......Mine? My fav player is from the 80's.......Great with his legs (esp the left leg) not that good with his speeches....NO prizes for a correct guess! Something to do with handicaps and GOD!!! Anyway, thanks for welcoming my son to this site.....He's 13 by the way....so guys go easy with the history of our Beloved Spurs with him..... Cheers and COYS!!!!!!!

Tophobunty - Are you Levy in disguise? 4M is acceptable for Villa but you would want 7-8 for Defoe and 15M is too much for Gomez... :P
rahn DMC
Should be free haha... interesting view. No not stupid regarding Defoe, I agree a bidding war would be great but I doubt it would happen (I also would take 6M). Just think it's interesting comparing your views on Defoe and Villa when there's 10 months age difference and one's the highest scorer ever for Spain and the other is a decent/average premiership striker. Regarding Gomez I guess everyone has their preferences. And that's nice to know you have hair.
rahn DMC
A mobile forward is definitely what we need to look at for sure (a complete No.9 - Someone like Torres back in his prime). I think Gomez would do very well in the premiership and I do think we could get him for lower than the supposed 15M fee as it was rumoured he could go for 7M earlier in the summer. I feel choosing the right striker to sign will be one of the hardest decisions AVB and Baldini have to make this summer.
rahn DMC
Not at all! Glad I'm not making the decision ;)
rahn DMC
Look, the Villa issue is twofold, his wages (which affects how much we will pay in transfer fees) and the deal Villa must do with Barca to not partake in his final year's salary, which was to be astronomical. This is somewhat like the Adebayor situation, unfortunately. The transfer part is the easy part. Barca handing Villa all of the transfer fee (and perhaps more) is the issue. I do agree though that this is one deal where if the difference is 2-3M, I say Levy should just stump it if it means it gets done now. The fact that we have spoken with Villa and his agent suggests that things are pretty much decided whether or not an "official offer" has been made. Clubs don't let other clubs talk to their players unless the groundwork is all there. By January the fee will have halved and Villa will still want a lump sum payment to go or he'll take his funds, go where he wants for free and get more of a signing bonus or in wages. He is still David Villa. COYS

CAVANI to PSG for 62 million euros...

hope he flops....
Yidmarks
Villa is on a win-win whatever. If nothing happens he just sees out his contract and pockets the 11 million. If he moves to spurs and Barca pay him a 6 mill pay-off plus what we pay in wages he will get 11 mill anyway give or take a bit, plus first team football.
Hot_Spur
Yidmarks - Why, what has Cavani done to you?
Hot_Spur
Hot_Spur... he has been hyped up for so long and then ends up in the French league... he could have chosen somewhere better.... No?
Yidmarks
Yidmarks, no one else would pay that much so no, not really!
