That Sanchez lad was all over the shop positionally.

@JamesMilner
Another hat-trick for Mo today… just waiting for the other two to be confirmed by the claims panel😜


#3269

He’s some man against the minnows


#3270

Champions elect.

We’re gonna win the league.


#3271

Harry has surely put in for a medal


#3272

They’ve a huge wage bill too - 8th highest in the league - so they could be really fucked if they go down.

They’ve gambled with too many appointments anyway. Obviously Pochettino was a success but they got rid of Adkins who had them promoted twice and they weren’t even in the relegation zone at the time. If you keep switching managers at the drop of a hat like that you’ll get burned eventually.


#3273

What was the logic behind getting rid of Puel?


#3274

How many did Harry Kane claim today?


#3275

Its the same scenario with the players as well. You can’t just keep selling your best players every year and expect it to work forever


#3276

Boring style apparently. He hasn’t done that well at Leicester the last while either. Wouldn’t be surprised if he moved on at the end of the season


#3277

Doesn’t seem to affect Spurs too much.


#3278

We’re dropping back. Second last season, probably fourth this season and real signs of regression. We had the best defence in the league last two seasons. This season our long serving goalkeeper is suddenly past it and a bomb scare and three quarters of the back four we had last two seasons are effectively gone.


#3279

The fans must be delighted with all these high scoring games so.


#3280

The strange thing was they gave Pellegrino so much time this year and by the time they got rid of him, they were beginning to look in real bother without many decent alternatives available, they ended up appointing Hughes whose stock would be quite low of late.

I’d imagine they will have to cash in a big proportion of the squad, there are a lot of players there with big reputations and international expectations - you have guys like Cedric, Bertrand, Gabbiadini, Carrillo, Boufal, Redmond, Tadic, Lemina, Hoedt, Romeu etc who will all be onto their agents to get them out of there this summer.

I think their transfer dealings have been decent over the past few years, I actually think they bought quite well this summer too but the managers have just failed to get the best out of the side.


#3281

Walker would be the only regular Spurs have cashed in on under Pochettino.


#3282

Spurs have sold off their best players for years. And they have profited handsomely from it.


#3283

Spurs couldn’t afford his wage demands. Man City were prepared to meet those demands and pay him £130,000 a week so not a lot you can do other than cash in. Chairman Dan did well in extracting £54 million from Abu Dhabi.


#3284

Chairman Dan did well as always. That has nothing to do with the point in question. it’s a simple fact that Spurs have no problem selling their best players.


#3285

Sure aren’t they paying levy more than kane per week?
