    Rumours Abound

    Closing in on Vucinic
    Looking at Llorente
    9 mil price tag on Crouch
    Toon Looking at pilfering Defoe
    Sevilla say they haven't spoken to Gio or Spurs about a move

    Anyone heard any others; I got all these from the Spurs page on Mail Online and various links from that page.

    The last one sounds a bit tasty

    Spurs to hijack Gooner bid for Mata

    Personally I think the rumour mill's just gotten back around to us as it had been quiet of late.

    Anyone heard any others, I need amusement.

      • I heard Affelay (sp)

        A few weeks back now, but we were definately linked. I really rate this guy although a few others on here have poo-poohed him, he's been a good player for at least the last three seasons, Barca signed him for a reason! He's a dutch player with passing range and a touch that you'd expect from a dutch international.

        He has been played on the wings for Barca but there is much more to him, he regularly played in the centre of the park for PSV and had been a first team player for them since he was a wee'laddie!

        As Barca have now signed Sanchez I think Affelay could well be limited at the Camp Pou.

        Because he can play anywhere in midfield, if the 14 year old croatian midget is about to do a runner I'd be chuffed to bits if we secure Affelay.

        Sorry if the last paragraph seems pessimistic (sp), but I'm not convinced Luka will stay! I fear we are only delaying the invietable.

        In all honesty the only players I would want to consider selling (unless stupid money comes in) are:

        BALE
        VDV
        NIKO
        SANDRO
        WALKER-
        ROSE - Only as they need a chance.

        This is assuming Luka is off!

        IMO this list represnts player who I believe we have not seen the best of and who need more opportunity

        Any one else could leave if the money was right, I know some might say that rights off half the squad. We will never get rid of all the expendables! but as we have all ackowledged everyone has their price and personally I think alot of what we have is priced out of the market.

        COYS- I hope my head drops off or this damn headache does one!

    • heard about Ryad Boudebouz

      Ryan is only 20, but has already made a name for himself being a finalist in this year’s Young African Player of The Year competition.

      The boy has a sweet left foot and would be a good prospect for us and would be a steal at the reported 4m price tag.

      Also the Modric rumour refuses to go away with chelski reported to be coming back with a 35m + sturrige offer

      • Bershire,

        I'd probably take £35mil + Sturridge. I know I know it sets a bad president(sp), But I rate Stuirridge and I think Luka's head is well and truely turned!

        Luka is quality, but he is not irreplaceable, we have a strong group of midfielders and there are options out there!

        If he wants to go, let him, get what we can and concentrate on the players who do want to play for us!

        COYS
