Just read that we have enquired about the availability of Aaron Lennon of Spurs. Not sure if this would be a good move or not.

Believable5 Unbelievable4

Cracking player but nonsense. The rumour came from a made up agent

Agree6 Disagree2

Believable5 Unbelievable1

We should have juty signd scott sinclair when we had the chance

Agree4 Disagree4

Tom Ince

quite cheap compared to some
another one missed

Agree3 Disagree5

Ever Banega set for Southampton switch.

Believable7 Unbelievable12

No he isn't.

Agree10 Disagree1

Hopefully in a swap deal for Gaston

Agree10 Disagree15

Never say never, he may be.

Agree3 Disagree6

Been top of Poch's list all close season and still we are favourites at the bookies to sign him

Agree6 Disagree2

Started today vs Barcelona. Can we leave this now?

Agree8 Disagree0

I don't think MP shares his transfer info with the bookies. Just saying.

Agree3 Disagree2

Hes in the vallencia team tonight

Agree4 Disagree1

Starting for Valencia tonight so we can rule that out

Agree5 Disagree1

He's been taken off with 20mns to go; surely that means he's had a plane to catch for a medical tomorrow! LOL

Agree3 Disagree3

Wow. if we are top at the bookies! I'm convinced. if he was coming we would have heard more. He has said he doesn't want to move, they have said they want to build the team on him etc etc. now this may well be them posturing but I can't see it.
We do need a pacey creative midfielder. Unfortunately I don't think we will get one. I think he is hoping the day of the Ramires is coming. I hope to God he's right but am doubtful.

Agree3 Disagree4

He literally just finished CAPTAINING Valencia this evening. not sure he will want to leave

Agree2 Disagree2

He wasnt even in the squad

Agree0 Disagree6

anybody got any news on any signings befoe deadline day because as someone who was at nowrich you could se e need a winger because yes ward prowse has been good so far he's not a wingerand this was made obvous yesterday because wtithout clyne and shaw we have no width so hoping were looking at someone maybe moses or capel eithier would do and if were being greedy a cb becaue without lovre we would of been hammerd yesterday so anybody got anything eds?

Believable6 Unbelievable1

Moses is going to L'pool. Pretty much a guarantee at this point. Not heard anything on Capel, but we were in talks with Sporting earlier in the season and seemingly nothing came of it, so who knows. I

Agree6 Disagree1

We are in discussions with a few people. Pochettino is happy with the squad we already have and he is right to be. We have plenty of talented players. Anyone else joining will be the cherry on the cake for this squad.

Basically don't worry if nobody does come in tomorrow, but do also be aware Cortese and Poch are still working to find a few more players if they will come for the right price.

Agree4 Disagree1

Hoping for Banega and a CB.

Got a feeling we'll sign an AM. Doubt it will be more than one player though.

Agree6 Disagree0

Need proper cover at full backs. chambers not good enough yet. fox just not good enough full stop

Agree5 Disagree8

Chambers not good enough? He was brilliant against Sunderland and West Brom. Only let us down a bit against Norwich and he wasn't the only player who did.

Agree9 Disagree3

What is the problem people have with Fox. Thought he had a decent game yesterday. I think he is good cover for Shaw.

Agree8 Disagree14

Fox was s**t on sat!

Agree13 Disagree9

Fox was good yesterday. One off game isn't reason to panic buy anyone. We played very well in our first 3 games. We played a much more conventional 4-4-2 yesterday when we're used to playing a rotating 4-2-3-1. That lead to us having less cover and more space between the back four and midfield and is somewhat to blame for Redmond's goal. Given that our two best fullbacks, who are most often played instead of wingers, were out and replaced with two fullbacks who sit much deeper one of whom played a full 90 mins in midweek aswell as Fonte, Ramirez and Davies if you add all that together you'll realize we didn't play all that badly and probably deserved a draw out of the game

Agree8 Disagree5

So. Just me who thought we lacked creative flair yesterday. I could see several occasions where the forwards were screaming for a good ball in. If we want the best from osvaldo we need that ball into the box

Agree10 Disagree2

I think the team are struggling with the new style. I have noticed we aren't pressing as much either. Shaw and Clyne are our 1st choice fb but without them we lacked width. Wanyama had a poor game. I thought he was at fault for the goal for not chasing Redmond down ( I could have seen he was cutting inside!) and passing was hit and miss. I think we are missing cork a little bit but poch knows what he is doing

Agree4 Disagree2

As I said above, I really think we are missing the creativity but I totally agree with the poster below me in everything he says. I thought wanyama was poor. He was caught short yesterday.
I'm not remotely worried. I think we have massive potential but without flair, I think we are going to score few goals from open play.

Agree3 Disagree1

Im the person who put the post on here and for the record fox was good actualy ye he didn't go foward but didn't losethe ball eithier so dunno why you all are still giving him s**t

Agree1 Disagree0

Chambers was s*** against Norwich & definatly Sunderland, he's only young and should improve but 1 good game at start of season don't mean he's ready. Lacks the ability to get foward in my eyes and ain't much of a tackler either. Not in same class as shaw & JWP. Needs a year in championship toughen him up a bit.
