Not wrong lads… but I will say I would think Madders and Chilly-Willy would both realize it’s not a case of Spuds wanting to sell Wee Erik and Toby (maybe have a question mark about Danny-boy!), but it’s pretty obvious the first two want out…
As for Foxy Ladies wanting to sign players, you’d have to ask them! 🙂
Joking aside, sure they won what is considered by many a bit of a fluky title (yes, they deserved it at the time, but then they “disappeared” again), and are having a very decent 6 months or so, but I think they’ve still got a ways to go to be considered a constant threat to the Top 6, let alone a member. Would think the club is still seen by players as a bit of a stepping stone… and Spuds are obviously entering a bit of a rebuild phase. IT might be tempting, it might not, maybe /assuming they wanted to leave) they might want a bigger club than Spuds…
Foxy Ladies don’t need to sell, and time is on both their sides (Mad Madders and Chilly-Willy!)14th October 2019 at 3:04 pm #50050maverick1973Participant554 pts
Kylie-You forgot Jan the man,the man is been utterly crap the last few months,he needs to go,too.Try & get some money for either of em 3,inluding the wee Viking,4 in fact-Rose is crap.Wanyama too.Lo Celso & Ryan to start playing regularly,and Moura to swap places with Alli/Eriksen.14th October 2019 at 3:30 pm #50053
Hey Goosey Lucy, been a lot of gossip that they’ve opened “negotiations” for Jan-Used-To-Be-The-Man, so I suspect he’ll be staying…14th October 2019 at 3:58 pm #50054maverick1973Participant554 pts
Kylie-If thats true then Spuds are becoming a new United-awarding failure with new,improved contracts! Pray that these rumours are just that.16th October 2019 at 4:58 am #50107
Talking about Spurs becoming the new Utd….16th October 2019 at 6:38 am #50111
The stuff of nightmares… why does it have to be Spuds who allow Maureen to prove, as great as he may have been, his simply a blast from the past…16th October 2019 at 7:09 am #50114
Nightmare scenario Jose for all his faults still knows how to win trophies and he could help Spurs put a trophy in that empty room in their new Stadium.?

I’d stay clear of Jose. Yes he has won a lot of trophies, albeit a while ago and usually with a lot of backing, but his style and tactics are out of date and the man is now a bitter, humorless shadow of the “Special One” that first walked in at Stamford Bridge.
For some reason I can see Eddie Howe as the next Spurs manager.16th October 2019 at 8:09 am #50118
as for united….it would be just like them to pick up erikson and others in Jan who are not wanted by Poch…and then Poch ends up with them at united, same thinkg happened to Jose with Mata…at least they will know each other but that may not be a good thing after this year16th October 2019 at 10:30 am #50123
I’m with 3p’s on this, I’d take Eddy (not the Swedy one!) over Maureen any day of the week and twice on Sundays… wouldn’t say not to that kid in Germany either, the one with the team with wings, Smegul or something.16th October 2019 at 11:41 am #50127
I’d love for Eddie Howe to get the Spurs job. Would be quite happy for him to be there having them as a steady club who settle for playing nice football. For all Mourinho’s faults, he’d be the first man in a long time to make me think Spurs are a threat to my own club’s ambitions.
Don’t misunderstand me there. Spurs are clearly better than us currently but I don’t in any way see them as a threat in terms of winning trophies that I want my club to win.16th October 2019 at 11:43 am #50130
you are spot on there eddy, spuds are no trophy threat to anyone…ever 😉16th October 2019 at 11:49 am #50132MikusParticipant200 pts16th October 2019 at 11:53 am #50133
How about a marriage between Buffy & Goose?16th October 2019 at 2:25 pm #50144
“For all Mourinho’s faults, he’d be the first man in a long time to make me think Spurs are a threat to my own club’s ambitions.”
Spot on Ed, Mourinho has won trophies wherever he goes including two at United.
I definitely don’t want to see Mourinho at Spurs much rather Spurs stick with Poch or make a risky appointment.16th October 2019 at 2:31 pm #50145
“Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has reportedly made one final attempt to keep a contract rebel at the club beyond next summer.
AS reports that Spurs have offered playmaker Christian Eriksen a new four-year contract which would see him paid £5.25million per year.”
If the above report is true I can’t see Eriksen staying for circa £100kpw especially in the knowledge of what Ramsey negotiated for himself with Juve. Very strange offer from Levy imo.16th October 2019 at 3:52 pm #50158
Was that before or after taxes? As there are reports he’s been offered 230,000 a week around aswell…16th October 2019 at 4:08 pm #50164AdlabParticipant261 pts
He needs to talk about going to City and then Utd will go and pay him? Well Sanchez and Fred managed it!
I think he will wait til the summer and get a huge signing on fee a la Milner. That was, I believe, £10m.16th October 2019 at 4:22 pm #5016717th October 2019 at 7:52 am #50183
come on i know the players themselves may not have spoken at the time but there was plenty of interest form city, and at the time (for both)( it did seem that uniteds only interest was after city became interested
i actually think both were bought to stop city than because united genuinly wanted them, but would have thought they were getting 2 decent players on top….alas that didnt quite work out
and to my mind at least Mayureen has form for this, starting in the first stint at chelsea, thats why they suddenly hoovered up so many young talents for around erurope on loan including Lukaku, he was very much sort after and heavily linked with Arsenal and others and the of course out came the cheque book and off he went to play aty every club that wasnt chelsea! they did have some fine strikers at the time mind….in fact i think Chelsea current ban is down to his behavious and ethos (not alone)
i do however think a few clubs with the rescources have bought players only to stop rivals having them and no other reason….
thats my tuppence 🙂
