Started at 39 and been problematic ever since (almost 60 now). Some of it (admittedly) is of my own doing, some of it issues with the treatment I've received, but I crack on. I do agree that being a yid doesn't help Laugh Thanks JTB

Anyway, suffice to say that this thread is about Spurs and today is important for our future prosperity. An early Spurs goal would certainly help our cause. COYS

I can certainly sympathise with the issues of constant blood tests, transfusions etc, as my sister went through the same thing with chenotherapy. Her left arm was black and blue and constantly painful, to the point that she dreaded the next appointment. In her own memorable phrase ' I've had more things stuck in me than the treble twenty at a world darts final'. I don't think I would have understood the problem if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes.

Wishing you all the best for the ongoing treatment - and yes, an early goal would avoid spending the afternoon stressed out!

Pablo Dybala is a possibility for spurs I'm told, There is a lot of hype surrounding his move to Inter Milan, but the Premier league appeals to him.

Lo Celso is all but gone as his move back to Spain looks set to be completed.

Left footed Centre back is high on the list and The Leicester Turkish CB has been linked in the last couple of days, however the furthest fetched suggestion I have heard, is That Spurs could be tempted by Harry Maguire as he has fallen out of love with United, homegrown quota needs addressing. There is a Leicester player linked however and that is Tielmans, however there may well be some tough opposition to his signature. No European football has meant that several clubs are on high alert for his signature, However Newcastle are interested and that could be hard to compete with the wages they can offer. Spence is another that could be in line for spurs

We've done our pieces on NDombele allowing for amortisation w've lost £40,000,000 over 3 years.
I can't see us getting a penny for him, anything over a tenner would be reasonable.
We might get a few quid for Lo Celso, but Clark,Gill and now Sarr don't look cashable.
Carter Vickers of those on loan has I believe a fixed price on his head which the jocks will pay.

It probably highlights why we have struggled in recent years, until we got lucky (or perspicacious) with Bentacur and Kulu.
Winks and Bergwijn appear to be attractive to bids whether they go is another matter, and Sanchez might be another who's
vulnerable, although his form as an understudy at the end was reasonable.
Compared to Man U who need a clear-out we have a fair amount of gaps to fill, but we have a strong base and an excellent spine
so we might if we spend a few bob have a much better season than last.

I read a few days back that Ten Hag is interested in Bergwijn, although I don't see that happening. Lucas wants to end his career at Sao Paulo but wants to stay in Europe for now (again, paper talk).

As for Bale, he will not have to fear not getting picked for Wales so if he was to join us, self-preservation will be his priority in the first half-off the season and in the second, I doubt he'd give a damn, unless we were true contenders.

A mate who watches Forest tells me that Spence has a touch of Kyle Walker about him - very quick, can run with the ball and beat a man, also uses his speed to cover in defence. And unlike Walker, he can produce a cross with the left foot, so he can go either side of an opposing full back. He's not happy that Forest have failed to turn his loan into a permanent deal.

Perhaps Forest will take whichever of Doherty or Emerson that Conte is happy to sell?

That's what Conte (apparently) said. He wants competition for Hojbjerg and Bentacur. Looks defensively sound, very clean in the tackle and is capable of a decent goal too, but not a prolific scorer; a lot of technical ability and a decent range of passing too, according to this video (12 mins) - worth a watch.
