    Kounde Watch
    Alasdair Gold claims that Kounde could be persuaded to join us if Los Ladrones do not make an offer

    I repeat what I said a week or so ago: I really don't want us signing players whose attitude towards us is "you'll do" because that's leaving us wide open to having certain clubs sniffing around within a couple of seasons knowing he'll jump at the chance, even if we likely double what we paid for him

    And that's the annoying part, as Sevilla are interested in Sanchez and were willing to accept cash + Sanchez a couple of weeks back, as the only way that deal could be better is if they wanted to exchange Dier & Sissoko for Kounde without us paying a penny in transfer fees

    De Telegraaf report that Ajax are interested in Bergwijn, but need to sell before they can buy

    Personally I feel we should keep hold of Stevie B, and looking at him in pre-season he's already looking twice the player he was made to look by our insipid system once the ubermensch got paranoid about our weakness at RB

    On the other hand, so you're saying that Ajax need some cash...?

    In he real world, City say they would not pay that much and Spurs say he is not for sale. A non story from a non newspaper. In other news George W. Bush is buying a holiday home in Vladivostok and Arsene Wenger is to merge his pen knife company with MacDonald's to foster his share a hamburger scheme. Coca Cola are looking to market their drink in bamboo socks.

    It's the old dance. We've seen it before...the trick is to follow the money. If, in the next few weeks, we're going to be spending money like a sailor who's just hit port and City aren't buying anyone, it's only a matter of time until it's done...probably 16 August or shortly thereafter.

    If we don't complete deals on players who cost significant money, like with Skriniar last summer, then maybe our denials might mean something. Otherwise, it's just hot air on both sides.

    I somewhat disagree with this. If we can get the best players we should. That'd be like not buying Bale in the first place because he had Madrid dreams.

    Who knows, if you get the right combo of top players at the same time, they may grow to love the place, and if they don't we should have elevated the club somewhat whilst they are here, making us more attractive to other top players. (Plus, imagine the deal we can make with Real Madrid when the time comes, which players of their we might want to take in exchange.)

    Rinse, repeat.

    Imagine Man United not buying Ronaldo. <laugh>

    When we signed Bale he wasn't dreaming of Los Ladrones, just like the Oily Rat wasn't dreaming of them when he signed for Man Utd

    Look at Haaland for a blatant case of "you'll do", as the terms of his Dortmund contract outright say that he's using them as a pitstop en route to a club he feels he should be playing given the release clause for next summer fits very nicely with the budgets of The Usual Suspects (at least until the bottom fell out of Barca's and Los Ladrones' coffers in the last eighteen months...) coupled with his already outrageous wage demands which, frankly, deserve to see his career pan out like the last Dortmund striker who thought he deserved to move to one of The Usual Suspects only for none of them to show any interest so instead he's been a drain on Arsenal's resources for the last five years

    £13m for Toby? Not only will that top up the coffers and get his wages off the books, but also means we'd be selling him for a profit

    We getting that monaaaay!

    ‘Tis a good deal though if it happens. Fair bit more than I expected us to get if we sold him. Surprised he’s going there though, was under the impression he preferred a move closer to home.

    Possibly heading there for a year or two before joining Beerschot 2: Electric Boogaloo to call it a day

    It is almost as if they believe it is £ity`s right to buy Kane, and that £ity should be setting the price. IF Kane is for sale, Spurs will set the price, or £ity can fack off and we will be delighted to keep him.

    As others have said though, worrying signs will be some abnormal spending from Spurs and £ity failing to sign a centre forward, that would point to a deal late in the window. Levy will have some balls to sell him though, the fans are already on his back (and rightly so) as it is, imagine if he sold Kane, and for a price regarded as less than his worth to Spurs.

    City are "warning spurs that they won't be held to ransome over signing Kane"

    In mid-February 2019 we were in 3rd place, 5 points off top, playing good football without Kane who had been out injured. Son was scoring for fun. Then, against Burnley, Poch introduces a nowhere near match-fit Kane back into the team from the start; suddenly we're all over the place because the whole team has to re-adjust and we lose momentum, Son stops scoring and we start to sink like a stone. Same thing in the CL final where Kane is played from the start after returning from injury see my comments at the time from this point onwards
    https://www.not606.com/threads/tottenham-hotspur-v-liverpool.374429/page-28

    Bad squad management and pandering to a striker whose main focus has always been to play as many games so he can win the golden boot was our downfall that season. As great a striker as Kane is, he doesn't always put the team before personal glory and, imho, that has cost us. If he was a bit more honest and said something like "i'm not quite ready yet" or "bring me on from the bench if we're way out in front or need to chase a goal" then we'd probably have ended up with a better end to that season.

    A clearly injured R Baggio played the 1994 WC final (with Zola on the bench) and Italy ended up losing to a workmanlike Brazil team on penalties, effectively playing 120 minutes with 10 men. That's what it has seemed like whenever Kane returns from injury
