    :lol: please pipe down and show some patience young child.
    It amuses me how up tight you get on this forum, your blood pressure must be through the roof.
    A major player will leave Spurs before the end of the window.

    Eriksen is as good as gone. Apparently sold up in London with his family looking at places in Madrid.

    Interesting to see who Poch has got Spurs chasing as his replacement, Van De Beek, Lo Celso, Bruno, Ceballos? They will definitely be bringing in someone like this. I think Sessegnon through the door at Spurs is only a matter of time as well. Then it is just resolving the Alderweireld issue, probably just move Dier back to CB.

    :lol: First it was "they won't spend without selling a star player first". Then, when that prediction bit the dust today, it was the straw-clutching of some imagined secret sale of Eriksen that supposedly might have already happened but not announced.

    Now it's become "a major player will leave Spurs before the end of the window". Well, this might well happen, but it's far cry from your original prediction. And even if it does happen, a major player has already arrived.

    You're tiresome. How old are you? 12?
    Just sit back and watch the rest of the transfer window. :rolleyes:

    Ndombele is undoubtedly a decent player but a major player? Not yet. A lot of money spent on promise rather than output so far, very similar signing to AWB just more money.
    I'm sure you'll rattle off his assist and goalscoring exploits last season as defence of his greatness, I'd counter that with Memphis Delays output last season, very impressive at Lyon, not so at United.

    Id say this is all dependent on Eriksen moving. We see Eriksen move, odds on Lo Celso to Spurs. Levy finally throwing down some money to back Pochettino, I guess it was either that or risk him walking.

    Yes, I'd agree this is the likely dependency.

    Interesting twist in this ongoing narrative of Pochettino rebuilding project. Where would he play? Does he suit Spurs?

    I feel like it is a ploy to lower Real Betis demand for Lo Celso. However, Pochettino is a clever man and he must know that Ali performance is poor of late. As such, giving him some competition in Bruno might be what Ali needs to improve his game.

    Winks/Sissoko - N’Dombele
    Eriksen - Bruno - Son
    Kane

    Not to bad, but I believe a dribbler Or a technician like lo Celso would be more fitting in their attack. Bruno seems to much like Eriksen. Strange rumor.

    Sell him cheap to real Madrid and loan him back. That way Eriksen gets his move. Tottenham recieves a few plus keeps him another season and real gets Eriksen cheap. :)

    I mean, the rumor would make sense if Eriksen was leaving, but Bruno alongside Eriksen doesn’t make sense. They are too similar to each other. Plus with Madrid going after Van Der Beek, I don’t believe Eriksen will be leaving Spurs.

    In all honesty, if Spurs can get Lo Celso and Sessegnon, while keeping Alderweireld, Rose, and Eriksen, it will be a decent start to the rebuilding project. Forsyth, Walker Peters and Aurier could replace Trippier at right back and Pochettino will assess their performance next season to see if they are good enough.

    However, looking at Arsenal spending £72m on Pepe plus more addition, United spending £80m on Maguire plus more addition, and Chelsea spending £60m on Pulsic, the narrative will look like Pochettino is not being backed by Spurs unless they add another quality signing to their team. Lo Celso is a good player but it is not really a statement signing like Pepe or Maguire. Regardless, I believe this season might be Spurs hardest test towards retaining top four and winning a trophy as their other rivals have strengthened significantly.

    I see it more as a further building project, and not so much as re-building. But I agree that signing Lo Celso and Sessegnon, whilst keeping Alderweireld, Rose and Eriksen would represent a good window for us, especially considering that we've already signed Ndombele.

    I'm not sure that Maquire qualifies as "statement" signing, although for sure it's a statement of money spent on a defender.

    Lo Celso confirmed





    Great bit if business by Spurs and still keeping Eriksen. Their attack just got more stronger.

    Ryan Sessegnon confirmed. Back up to Rose? Under Pochettino he may be able to unearth and sculp another gem that could be worth a lot in the future

    Overall, @Amadaeus give this early rebuilding project a B+.

    Pros:
    • Improved the depth of their attack and midfield.
    • N'Dombele could be the player that is the missing link in their midfield
    • Chance to blood in youth like Foysth, KWP, Skipp, Tanganga, Parrott
    • Eriksen, Rose, and Alderweireld stayed
    Cons:
    • No replacement for Trippier. Youcef Atal would have been great addition
    • No impact or statements signing. Missed the mark by not signing Countinho or Dybala
    • No plan B as Llorente targetman ability really helped Pochettino last season. They have no target man to launch long balls at.
    That is it for this window, if Pochettino stays, the rebuilding project will begin again next spending window. In conclusion they have enough to get top four, which makes it more competitive for Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea. However, not enough to compete for title.

    Team when everyone fit.

    Lloris
    Forsyth/Aurier - Vertonghen - Alderweireld - Rose
    Sissoko/Wink - N’Dombele
    Eriksen - Lo Celso/Ali - Son
    Kane

    I thought football had reached its lowest ebb when fans started obsessively supporting individual players, no matter which club they support.

    I was wrong.
