Well of course he isn't, but that's Daniel for you. Spurs make a huge profit, have a ready-made replacement in Trippier (not quite as fast, nor as good a defender, but better going forward, with back-ups emerging in the academy) and Pep gets himself another mouthy bugger. What's not to love?

Yeah it actually does, it shows you don't really have much to banter with if you have to go back that far.

Please note that I support the club that made all the money getting rid of a trouble-maker, so no need for me to banter.
And I would have have had a more up-to-date example than carroll if any of Poo's later bad buys had done enough to make their names memorable.
I'll look up their transfers over the last few years and try to find something more chuckleworthy.

Well Benteke was a high transfer that flopped. Although I don't know why Liverpool couldn't have utilised his talents better. It was more a case of wrong club than bad player I think.

13/14
Mamadou Sakho 16m
Simon Mignolet 9m
Luis Alberto 7m
14/15
Dejan Lovren 21m
Lazar Markovic 21m
Mario Balotelli 17m
Alberto Moreno 15m
15/16
Benteke 39m
16/17
Lorius Karius 5m

So that's up to 150m pissed up the wall, without even mentioning the 19m for Downing. And of course a few have been sold on, but none at a profit.

Spurs bought Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton as a package for £9m. Sold on for a total of £55m

I wasn't taking anything seriously, M. It's raining and I'm a bit bored, is all. After all, as I said, Spurs are on the right end of this deal.


And btw, if we're talking most money in terms of net spend, Spurs are the runaway winners in the prem over the past few years

If we were to pick up Benteke for £40 million, I'd be ecstatic.

As you say G, he was playing for the wrong manager(s) at Liverpool - not difficult recently, it must be said- and is very very close to Lukaka... Lukaku would be a better finisher and more skilful, but Benteke is a better leader of the line and pisses all over Lukaku in the air. Even if we paid £50 million and made between £25-40 million profit (on the Lukaku deal) it would be a sensational piece of business for us.

What's not to love?


I actually went and saw Spurs at Wembley in their dead rubber game in the Champions League - I spent most of the night looking at Walker, because I'm fascinated by him.

He has a phenomenal engine - alot of players can sprint quickly and alot of players can run all night. Walker is the only player I've seen that can sprint all fucking night long. And I really mean that - an incredible athlete.

And that's why Pep wants him - he's the perfect fit for the type of 'defence' he wants.... he's an English version of Alves. Guardiola will consider him a raging success. He'll quote how many thousands of miles of sprints he's run that game, how he spends 97% of his time in the opponents six yard box, how he can do flick flak's going backwards and still get from box-to-box in under 2.7 seconds. And he'll be absolutely spot on.

The one thing Kyle Walker cannot do, sadly, is defend. In any sense of the word. His positional sense is like a compass pointer directly on the magnetic north pole - he just goes round and round wildly, desperately trying to find where he should be, but never once getting there. He is absolutely fucking hopeless defensively.

Which makes his transfer to Man City truly a match made in heaven.

:lol: :lol:

I should point out though that he has got a fair bit better defensively as last season wore on. The three centre back system suited him because Jan and Toby (and to a lesser extent Dier) are so good at organising and covering, so his skittishness wasn't found out so often.

I should also mention that Trippier can't defend really either, not the way either of Spurs' left-backs can
