Bulgaria and you were right Sofa, we do have to qualify; a bit of a pain but hey ho
Report TheAnorak September 1, 2020 9:10 AM BST
The draw for this qualifying round seems to be a typical Uefa stitch-up. They have 72 teams involved, but split them up into groups of 6, with each group having three seeded teams. So the only other teams we could have drawn were from Greece and Albania.

They claim that the home and away part of the draw is random, but all three seeded teams in our group play away, and so far as I can see, it's the same all though the draw. So we can expect to be playing away in the next two rounds as well, as we must be just about the highest ranked team in this stage.

Watched the first 2 episodes of All or Nothing on Amazon, brilliant insight, I wonder if so called

Having seen the Suinderland expose this is better,that was a lot of doom and gloom but interesting

Odd regarding Foyth(Argentinian International) he looks the part, does makes some stupendous errors
but imho looks a player, he brings the ball out of defence which you can't say about Sanchez.
I think I prefer him to the latter.
Would like to see him get a prolonged run to see how good or bad he is.

A bit of risk imo. A run of games perhaps in the early stages of Europa or the cups, but his errors are, as you say, stupendous! Cut them out and we have a diamond, I'll give you that.

I think Mourinho's already made his mind up regarding Foyth.  Tanganga is more likely to be a regular in the first team.

Same ol same ol problems in midfield no service to front players, I counted 15 sidways passes
from Winks 4 forward, one directly into touch.
It seems to me we've bought another Sissoko in Hojbjerg which we need like a hole in the head.
Aurier would have been better than Doherty which means I'm clutching at straws.
We have one creative midfielder in Lo Celso who I'm none too confident in.
We are in the mire with loads of games in the next two weeks, unless we buy a couple of useful

It hasn't happened yet and the ironing board is still out (apparently) but never in a million years did I think Levy would go for this. If it happens this would be almost a big a surprise as Klinsmann, although I doubt anything will ever top that one.
Report TOP3MAN September 17, 2020 10:19 PM BST
You got to remember That he is a business man - Bale 40% of wages - plus part of merchandise will be given to Madrid - it's a good deal for spurs, because the shirt sales alone will cover this cost!!

Also Spurs have just signed one of the biggest names in women football, very much a similiar line as when Klinsman was signed for commercial boost to the club...... That is sure to increase revenue and profile of what is already a brand that the amercian market are buying into given the NFL links of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The stadium still has naming rights up for grabs, it has the golden girl of Amercian soccer signed!! The Amazon documentary is out there, Mourinho was brought in for that as well as football reasons, why wouldnt Levy employ one if not the biggest name in football management for commercial reasons. Signing the former world transfer record sale of Gareth Bale, back into a billion pound stadium after he was integral to 4 Champions league in 7 year (dont forget his goals won them 2 finals), then all the ingrediants are there for a big sale of the club to multi - billionaire business company in Amercia, to tap into the UK Market which is a massive growing market for the NFL as Sky sports push that sport more and more into the English and European market.............Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy spotted the market and he has with Joe Lewis backing - possiablly put Spurs as the biggest club in world football in years to come.

All that is needed now is that the team actually progresses - It surely will and its most probably why the England Captain seemingly never gets linked away from the club, he has had the reassurances of the direction the club is going in. He did say when the stadium was being built "who would want to leave this project at this moment in time"
