Tottenham Hotspur Message Board

Is it psychological? You are in front with 10 minutes to go. The manager takes off a forward and sends on a defender. Message received, stop playing the wining positive game and start the "hope we can hold on" game.
The Spurs game should be as we all want it. In the lead and wanting more goals.This is so obvious but no one agrees.

It is very simple. With the transfer window ludicrously extending into the start of the season late, hard bargaining deals will always go down to the last knockings. Accordingly team cohesion will not begin to happen until 4 - 5 games on. Some points will therefore be "lost". Does it matter? Is football a game or a business? Whatever faithful fans will lose out until the transfer date is changed to 31 July and hopefully remove the New Year window as well.

How many summers are needed to realise that transfers need completion before the season starts.Manager, Team, Fan frustration must count for something. Football is a business and bottom of the table is bad business.Wake up business managers and remember good team performance is still essential.
How friendly can you get?Kaiser Chiefs are hardly a threat to a Premier side and showed it very effectively.Spurs did not want to score and achieved that "goal" without breaking sweat and then when it appeared they might force a draw they stayed upfield to ensure a friendly result. Luckily I did not see the game live but as a downloaded repeat the fast forward (not a Spurs player) came in very handy. Still first game and very fiendly roll on Tuesday.

Most Spurs fans are awake and realistic. Let the business people do the business but let the manager and the team play the Spurs way. Win or not that is why we are Spurs fans.

Your understandable question and concern is applicable to not only Modric but all other "great" players. While they are at a club and want to be at a club they are valued and can become irreplaceable.As soon as they want to go and eventually do go they become a fond memory or a betrayer, but the team goes on. The most important factor of a succesful team is the passion each and every player has for the team. We have a great squad and most want to play for spurs and give their all. Some however do not show the passion factor and rarely give the never give up approach their team and fans expect.Support the players with Spurs passion and let those who want to go,go. One or two super players who are only interested in themselves can easily damage team moral.

According to today's (27 June )papers Chelsea are bidding for Bale & Modric, Liverpool for Lennon, Blackburn for Keene and Seville for Santos. All gossip or what? Despite Chairman's assurances when will they go? How will that affect the leftovers? Who will be bought to replace them? Does it matter that time is running out with the imminent tough start to the season? What ever Spurs will need more support than ever!!!!

Good old and new memories X1
Fantastic Lane servants
I would hate to see Spurs turn into a Man City/Chelsea obscene money factory with annual manager changes, non-uk players and total discontent if the team fails to win cups/leagues.
Keep Spurs as it is with sensibly priced transfers buys, a good youth policy and on-going consistent management.If they do not win cups/leagues but give us the normal ups and downs of football then finishing 5th, 6th is not a problem.
The game needs transfer fee limitations not Tesco Uniteds. Even banks go bankrupt!

The spine of any great team is crutial. You need above average players in the following: Goalkeeper, Central Defender, Central Midfield and Central Striker. Whether one or two players of that standard in those positions they need to be available and playing well all season.So where do we fall down????Compliment those with a Bale or two and European football will be a regular feature without relying on others to fail.
However I am still very pleased with Spurs and Harry has our traditional style back in vogue. Well done Harry and the lads.
