Tottenham Hotspur Team Newz and Gossip




we will sign both Chicharito and Honda in January!


52′ - Spurs go close and, once
again, its Jermain Defoe! He forces
Jaaskelainen into another save, this
time from the edge of the area after
some lovely interplay between
Eriksen, Sigurdsson and Paulinho. The
goalkeeper tips over adeptly and
Tottenham have yet another corner


51′ - Spurs earn a corner and, after
Eriksen and Defoe work it short, the
former attempts to whip in a cross.
Tomkins deflects it behind, however,
meaning the Dane is tasked with
putting in another delivery, his third
in as many minutes.


Spurs 3-0 Tromso

Spurs linked with swoop for Ajax

Following the signing of classy defender Jan Vertonghen from the Dutch champions last year it seems we
have been tempted back into the waters of the prestigious Ajax academy.
Firstly our search for a playmaker could be over as it seems that the immensely talented Danish attacking
midfielder Christian Eriksen could be ours for £15 million. This would be paltry sum for the criminally
under rated 21-year-old who would provide a flair, and subtlety of play unmatched since Luka Modric left.
He would bring a more aesthetic style of football to our first 11 and allow Soldado, Chadli and Paulinho to
thrive. He or Pjanic of Roma look most likely to come to the Lane next with Baldini’s ties with Roma seeing
us linked with a £44 million pound bid for him and Lamela. However he has intimated that he would like
to stay at Roma and Eriksen seems to be the perfect man for the job with only a year left on his current
Secondly, we are also said to hold a strong interest in Toby Alderweirald who has stepped up to the mantle
for the Amsterdam based club after Vertonghen left the club. He would be a brilliant signing for Spurs as
he would not only fill the hole left by Caulker but challenge Kaboul to a spot of the first team. He is also
right footed and as versatile as Vertonghen meaning that instead of a sub-par Naughton having to cover for
Walker he or Kaboul can play in that position to a proficient standard.
I would be very excited for the coming season if these two join the club with the money from the
seemingly finished Bale transfer along with a top notch winger to replace him in the front three.


‘Must read’ Bale quotes
for Tottenham fans
If you believe the stories
coming out of Real Madrid’s
unofficial newspaper Marca, it
would appear that Tottenham
are on the verge of losing their
star asset Gareth Bale in a
deal believed to be around
According to the Madrid based
newspaper, Bale feels
extremely let down with
Tottenham chairman Daniel
Levy at his refusal to negotiate
with Real Madrid.
As a Tottenham fan myself, I
am getting rather sick and
tired of it all. It is no secret
that Marca essentially work for
Real Madrid and it would
appear that their sole purpose
is to try and unsettle potential
transfer targets.
The latest to come out of Marca
are quotes that Bale has
supposedly said. According to
the Spanish newspaper Bale
has said that he is not
interested in signing for
Manchester Utd. or any other
team, only Real Madrid.
However as many Tottenham
fans have noticed these quotes
sound all too familiar. In fact
the quotes that Marca used
are actually words from former
Tottenham midfielder, who now
plays for Real Madrid, Luka
Modric. Marca have literally
just changed the source of the
quote from Luka Modric to
Gareth Bale.
Marca should feel embarrassed
at this, any newspaper that
would make up quotes should
feel ashamed of themselves.
Furthermore Real Madrid
should feel embarrassed, they
are acting like a child who
isn’t allowed dessert after
dinner. You have to feel for
Real Madrid in some ways, they
are constantly overshadowed
by FC Barcelona in La Liga and
this summer they have missed
out on nearly all of their top
Brazilian sensation Neymar
opted to join Barcelona while
strikers Radamel Falcao and
Edison Cavani decided to test
out their skills in the French
Ligue 1. Real Madrid are used
to getting what ever player
they want, for example,
Ronaldo, C. Ronaldo, Zidane,
Figo and David Beckham,
however this summer this is
not the case and the Spanish
giants are really making a fool
out of themselves with these
fabricated stories.
Gareth Bale has shown no
indication that he wants to
leave, in fact actual quotes
from the player suggest that he
is looking forward to another
Premier League campaign with
the North London side.
Recently the double PFA
winner praised his current boss
Andre Villas-Boas and
suggested he was looking
forward to working with him
next season.
The Welsh winger said: “We
have a great relationship. Last
season we had a great
campaign and obviously we
came up short but we had a
great working relationship on
and off the field. We chatted
quite a lot about tactics and
stuff like that. He definitely got
the best out of me last season
and hopefully can again.”
This not the only quote in
recent weeks that suggest that
the Cardiff born player will still
be wearing the Lily White of
Tottenham next season. In an
interview with Match Magazine,
Bale talked about qualifying for
the Champions League with
Tottenham next season.
Bale said:
Definitely. We all
believe we can get
into the Champions
League otherwise
there’s not point
being here. It’s just
a matter of going out
there and proving
everyone we can.”
Bale even went on to suggest
that Tottenham could
challenge for the title next
year. He added:
We did a couple of
seasons ago so
there’s no reason
why not. We’ve
definitely got a good
enough team to
challenge. It just
depends on how
consistent we can
We’re all looking
forward to the
season, hopefully we
can improve on last
season – I’m sure
with a few more
additions to the
squad we’ll be a lot
Furthermore AVB has even
come out and said that Gareth
Bale is not for sale at any price
and has reassurance from the
chairman that he will not be
sold. The Portuguese manager
We have the
commitment that
Bale will not leave
the club.”
Speaking at Tottenham’s pre-
season tour in Hong Kong, AVB
I want to become
repetitive from what
I was telling you last
season and from the
beginning of pre-
season. The player is
one we are willing to
continue to have as
a Tottenham player.
He is one of the
most fantastic
players in the world
at the moment. We
are counting on him
for the future.”
Additionally, Bale is featured
on the cover of Fifa 14 in a
Tottenham shirt, he was also
on a giant billboard in the
middle of New York’s Time
Square also wearing a
Tottenham shirt and he is also
BT Sports main spokesperson
for the upcoming season.
Although these three things do
not guarantee that Bale will
not be playing in Spain next
season, they are pretty strong
indicators that he will continue
to apply his trade for
Tottenham Hotspur. When was
the last time a player on the
cover of Fifa was wearing the
wrong shirt?
Rest assured Tottenham and
Premier League fans, Gareth
Bale will be playing in the
Premier League next season,
not La Liga.


Supporters are already toasting the capture of top-quality Valencia striker Roberto Soldado for a
club-record fee and West Ham boss Sam Allardyce - who has his own plans to keep Remy in
London - believes the looming windfall gives Levy the chance to do what he previously hoped
net selling Bale would achieve.
Allardyce said: "That sort of money is paving the way for the club to bring in some really good
players so they can gain a Champions League place next season [for 2014-15].
"The hard thing for them is everyone knowing that Tottenham have got that money.
"When they show interest in any player, the price then rises.
"Tottenham's biggest problem is actually spending their money."
Fortunately for Spurs, however, there are still bargains to be had, Remy being one. For example,
Remy could be spirited away from Loftus Road either on loan or for the £8m it would cost to
trigger his release clause.
Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen - who is also wanted by Liverpool - is versatile and can weigh
in with goals. He has just a year left on his contract and would cost a fraction of the Bale fee at
around £15million.
Eriksen may be only 21, but he already has 36 caps for Denmark.
Callum McManaman may not be as glamorous a name as Eriksen, but the 22-year-old winger
was Man of the Match in Wigan's shock FA Cup Final win over Manchester City in May.
He would cost as little as £6m from Latics, who are now a Championship side.
Roma playmaker Miralem Pjanic is 23 and rated at around £10m.
Spurs have been tracking him for some time, and their new technical director Franco Baldini is
well aware of the Bosnian's capabilities from his own time at the club.
If, as he has indicated, Pjanic decides to stay in Serie A, Baldini and Spurs could turn to
another Roma star they know - 21-year-old forward Erik Lamela.
Tottenham's interest in the Argentine predates Baldini's arrival.
Lamela, known for his exceptional dribbling ability and pace, hit 15 goals last season from 33
If Spurs want a bigger name, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore's future has been
the subject of speculation since the big-money arrival of Edinson Cavani to partner Zlatan
Ibrahimovic up front.
At the back, Spurs have already agreed a £6.9m fee with Steaua Bucharest for defender Vlad
The 23-year-old should arrive after his club complete a two-legged Champions League qualifier
against Dinamo Tbilisi.
If Levy uses the Bale money wisely, it could be the north Londoners who are competing in the
Champions League qualifiers next summer - at the very least.

Looks like Soldado is gonna be a yiddo very very soon..


Three left-backs Tottenham
Hotspur should consider this
Although finding a striker is still Tottenham
Hotspur’s priority this summer, they could be on
the hunt for a new left-back.
There is every chance that Andre Villas-Boas will go
into next season without adding a new left-back to
Tottenham Hotspur ’s squad, with Danny Rose back
from a successful loan spell at Sunderland to
provide competition for Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
Kyle Naughton can also cover the position, and
although Ezekiel Fryers was signed in January with
an eye on the future, he might fancy his chances of
forcing his way into the first team sooner rather
than later.
However although these players are all solid
options, there are players out there who Villas-
Boas might fancy could take the team to another
level. Here are three left-backs who Spurs should
Fabio Coentrao
There has been speculation the Real Madrid
defender is keen to leave the Bernabeu this
summer after failing to nail down a first team place
in his two seasons there, and Spurs should do
everything they can to convince Coentrao to join
them if that is the case. The Portugal international is also reportedly
coveted by his former club Benfica along with
Monaco, but Spurs might hope that having Villas-
Boas at the helm might improve their cause, and
since Coentrao is apparently available at around
£13million, his price-tag should not be a problem
Alvaro Pereira
Frequently linked with Spurs due to Villas-Boas’
connection with his former club Porto, the
Uruguayan has suggested he is happy to stay at
the Italian club this summer, but Spurs might be
able to lure him to the Premier League if they
step up their interest.
The 27-year-old would bring plenty of attacking
quality to Spurs’ side, and the width he could
provide would be ideal if Villas-Boas plans to use
inverted wingers next season.
Bruno Martins Indi
At just 21 and with just 87 appearances for
Feyenoord under his belt, Martins Indi would be a
riskier purchase than either of the established
names above, but the Netherlands international
has the potential to become a fixture in Spurs’ side
for several seasons.
Able to play at left-back or in the middle of
defence, Martins Indi has indicated he would be
open to a move this summer, with AC Milan also
monitoring the defender’s situation.


Soldado wage agreed £58,000
a week


Tottenham are ready to break their
transfer record this week with an
£18m move for Valencia striker
Roberto Soldado, 28.
Spurs are also set for a fresh
move for Lyon forward Lisandro
Lopez, 28.
Real Madrid are ready to spend
£85m on Tottenham's 24-year-old
forward Gareth Bale.


€7m deal *CONFIRMED*
Nacer Chadli
Belgium is a quiver this
morning with the breaking
news that we have signed
Nacer Chadli …according to
Brussels news outlet
The first offer was
rejected by the
Dutch but Chadli
finally found a
release to finally get
to England and the
Premier League.
Belgian international
Nacer Chadli has
finally made his
choice and will join
Tottenham. The Red
Devil will sign a new
contract with the
Hotspurs, who
concluded an
agreement for € 7
million with Twente.
Radio Télévision Belge
Francophoneare also running
with the news as are who
refer to Chadli as being an
‘indispensable tool.’
Who is Nacer? Well, he’s an
attacking winger who appears
comfortable on either wing and
my money is on Azza Blud
reading this news and thinking
to himself, ‘aw gawd, innit
blud.’ Nacer looks pretty tasty
and a perfect fit for an
AVB's 433.


Top 7 strikers Spurs should be looking
at after missing out on
Christian Benteke.
Burak Yilmaz
Burak Yilmaz's performance in
the Champions league was
mind blowing not only because
he was extremely consistent in
the Turkish league. His clinical
finishing and his dominating
presence in the box might be
the thing we need. He is also a
decent dribbler. Jose Mourinho
praised his ability which
signals that we should get him
while we can. He is reportedly
available for £17m, which could
be a down right bargain
considering Soldado is
available for £25m. He should
be a very strong candidate that
Spurs should take a look at.
Roberto Soldado
I watched him many times and
his finishing ability, composure,
and technique blew me away. I
would say his price tag is
slightly inflated but I think he
would be worth the gamble.
The one problem I would have
with him is that he is very
reliant on others to do some of
the work as he is the type of
player who sits around the box
and makes clever runs. This
means that he is reliant on a
good crosser something we are
lack of. But he is still amazing.
He is a strong candidate that I
think £20m is all we should
spend on him but that is not
taking away his ability.
Pablo Daniel Osvaldo
I watched this man play plenty
of times and I say Spurs should
go in and get him. He is 27 so
he is at the prime of his career
and he is a proven goal scorer
in the Seria A and La Liga.
Although he has attitude
problems, that should not take
away his amazing ability. Roma
have put him up for sale and
Manchester City pulled out of
the race so we should get him.
He is available for £15m but I
think Spurs can negotiatie him
down to £10m.
Papiss Cisse
Until about 2 seasons ago, he
was an absolute god. But in
the last season, he was
disappointing to say the least.
Because of that I think he
should be a 3rd or 4th choice
striker because of his lack of
consistency. But I still think he
can be a hit. He has an
amazing shot on him and if he
can replicate his form that he
had 2 seasons ago then he
would be amazing. This is kind
of the same situation with
Demba Ba. Both of them
should be available for £7-9m.
Siem De Jong
This is criminally underrated.
His long shots are beautiful
and he combines well with
Eriksen (a player I wan't
Tottenham to sign.) De Jong
moved into the central
attacking midfield position
which could be concerning
because he might not be used
to playing as a centre forward,
but I think that they are both
similar positions. But with a
little adjustment he would be
amazing. He also has amazing
vision and can pick out players
that many can't see, and he
has amazing composure on one
on one situations. He also
makes clever runs inside the
box. Overall, Siem De Jong
should be one of our top
priorities to sign and not
Newcastle's. He should be
available for around £10m.
Jackson Martinez
Despite the terrible Pirlo
penalty attempt he took last
season he is packed full of
quality. He very recently
rejected a move to Naples so
we have been given the green
light to pursue him. He is
lighting quick, makes
intelligent runs, has an
amazing left foot shot on him
and he is really good at scoring
(to put it short.) AVB came out
and said the Tottenham do not
wan't him and I honestly don't
know why he would exactly say
that. I would say he is the
more skillful, younger, more
consistent, and as pacy version
of Jermaine Defoe. He would
not be the most cheapest
choice but I'd say one of the
best choices.
He has a good record of
terrorizing Arsenal's defense,
which should be a bonus. He
would be a good physical
presence in the opposition's
box and he does have a
stinging shot on him. He also is
a good header which is good
because Tottenham lacked an
aerial threat last season. He
should be a solid candidate.
£10m is what I would say we go
for. I say this move is unlikely
because he signed a new
contract and loves Swansea.
The two combinations of
strikers I'd prefer most are:
1. Siem De Jong and Jackson
Martinez combined fee around
£30-35m This is perfect
2. Or if Levy wants to be stingy,
Siem de Jong and Osvaldo
combined would be a fee of
around £20-25m. This is an
alternative but not the best.
