I dont think there's anything major to be done either. Top Class left sided centre half, a midfield general and cover for Kane. Someone like Pukki or Calvert Lewin.

I think Doherty has shown he can be one of the best wing backs in the PL if given a proper run, but I don't know how his injury is going to affect him. Think left wing back is an issue. Sess has been decent but there's little aggression and not enough in terms of assists for me.
It'll be interesting....

Just don't fuck about Levy, If Don Tony wants a player, get him the player, he's just earned the club an extra £50m in CL rights, plus increased sponsorship revenue, gates receipts and sausage roll revenue.

No penny pinching now, its us vs Liverpool, vs City next season.

Just randomly thinking aloud but if we move on Lo Celso and Fatty, there's £60m right there - at least.

Bergwijn around £20m. Winks and Carter-Vickers at £10m each and there's an easy £100m for transfers and five players off the books.

I really hope this is bollocks. He's one year younger than Hugo and 100 steps down. My rancid athlete's foot socks hidden in Levy's air-conditioning ducts if this happens.

The Tottenham Hotspur hierarchy will tell Antonio Conte in the coming days that they intend to fully back him this summer if he stays at the club, The Athletic understands. Chairman Daniel Levy is expected to offer Conte a clutch of new signings, including established, experienced players.

Conte’s contract expires at the end of next season but he has repeatedly refused to commit his future to the club beyond this summer, including when asked on Sunday after Spurs qualified for the Champions League with a 5-0 win over Norwich City.

Instead, Conte has maintained that he will speak to Levy and managing director of football Fabio Paratici about his future once the season finishes.

With the campaign over, Conte is enjoying a holiday in Italy and will speak to Levy and Paratici in the coming days. The latter is expected to fly to Italy for the discussions.

Conte will be informed of the fact that Spurs are willing to make half a dozen signings this summer to ensure Spurs can be competitive in the Champions League next season.

The Italian has repeatedly stated that Tottenham need to substantially invest if they are to be able to compete domestically with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool, and with Europe’s elite clubs. He has also repeatedly pointed to the introduction of the five-substitutes rule in the Premier League next season as further reason for the need for Spurs to strengthen.

Levy and Paratici will tell Conte that they are in agreement with this position, and that the new signings will include experienced heads who can add know-how and more of a winning mentality to the dressing room, as well as younger players who have more sell-on value.

This would be a departure from last summer when Paratici’s policy was to focus almost exclusively on youngsters, many of whom it was known would take a little while to settle in the Premier League.

Already in January, following Conte’s urgings, Spurs’ focus was on players who could instantly be ready for the first team. Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski arrived from Juventus, and within weeks had established themselves as automatic starters for the first team.

Levy and Paratici will be able to point to that window as evidence that they will back the head coach, as Spurs’ substantial investment in January was more than any of their Premier League rivals.

Conte has repeatedly asked for his employers to match his ambition, and that is precisely the case they will be making this week.

Backing Conte? Appears so….

Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur said: “The delivery of a world-class home was always a key building block in driving diversified revenues to enable us to invest in the teams and support our ambitions to be consistently competing at the highest levels of European football. Additional capital from ENIC will now enable further investment in the Club at an important time.’’

Wow! I guess that's because they know they can add a £1billion to the value of the club based on CL and the Chelsea FC sale price.

Wait, so Uncle Joe has finally reached down the back of the sofa for some beer money ?

After how long ?

If this does end up being used for transfers along with money from player sales, this is Conte being backed big time.

Although Poch is probably reading this announcement and thinking “Cunts. Why didn’t you do this when I asked for it?”

I'm not going to whine about the past, this is very good news. If, for once, Lewis & Levy's ambitions are aligned with mine, then that's progress and worth celebrating.

Just think, with the $100 million we'll get for Harry Winks that's a quarter of a billion to spend on players...

150 mil ain't what it used to be. Levy will probably spend that money on the new carousel for the plaza! CB, RB MF playmaker, backup up striker/winger are what we need. Uncle Joe might have to dig a bit deeper.

Don’t forget, this in addition to the money we make selling players and money received from qualifying for the champions league. So, maybe £200 million plus. I would also think we will loan some players, as we have with Romero, Deki and Bentancor

£150 Mill... that won't buy you a Declan Fucking Rice these days...

You're looking at 60+ for real.class and even then there's nothing guaranteed...

Yeah I will continue to be pessimistic about it all until it all comes together...

And a pacey French winger please...!!!

Yes, but (I would think) buying these players will almost certainly be a big portion of our summer spending.

Unfortunately, the 150M minus the selling of underperforming players will cancel each other out. We're at par.

I'm pretty sure the loan obligations won't be coming out of the £150m. I would have thought that any funds for those would have already been built in to the accounting. I remember reading that Deki's loan had an obligation to buy if we qualified for the Champions League so I imagine that would have been essentially set aside already, although I may be wrong.

At least he's homegrown. At least I think he his. Fraser Foster sounds pretty Englandy.

Isn't Pope also HG.....?

This smacks of the first compromise of the summer.

Pope could have been a real potential long term replacement for Hugo.

Maybe I'm being unfair an Pope doesn't want to deputise for anyone? Maybe he has eyes on England caps?

According to some of the reporting, this is correct--definitely the Deki loan bit, anyway. I've also seen it reported that his loan will be extended a year with an obligation to buy, which would free up funds in the short term.

Basically, ENIC is buying (in cash) £150 million in stock in the club. While I know fuck all about money, those who know more than me are saying this is to capitalize the club without taking on extra debt, and without dipping into the funds already allotted to pay down the external loans. Plus I'd think our biggest creditors would've had to approve this move.

Reading more about it, it looks like the club are actually trying to strike while the iron is hot. We've got a world-class manager, and looking at the rest of the top-end clubs, you can see why it's now or never:
  • our best players (Kane/Son) are probably at their peak
  • the chavs may well be fucked
  • Man United are rebuilding, and may well also be fucked
  • Liverpool are starting to age
  • Who knows how many more seasons Pep has in him
  • Even with blood money, the barcodes will take time to sort out
  • Arsenal 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
On the other hand, I'm starting to feel my cynicism giving way a little bit, which has me worried. It's the hope that kills and all that...

It is basically free money for the club. Not coming out of our bottom line, and not out of uncle Joe's pockets. ENIC increases it's ownership percentage, THFC gets a bunch of cash, and we most likely sign a bunch of average players. Basically a Levy special.

Look I don't want to piss on anyone's firework, I'm as happy about a cash injection of £150m as the next long suffering Yid (when I say long suffering it's all relative isn't it, I mean imagine if you supported Burnley or West Brom or Huddersfield or ....) but this is Levy we're talking about. £100m of that £150m will just about cover signing the loanees Romero, Kulusevski and Reguilon and their wages. Let's hope he's learnt from the Bale magnificent 7 money, we need 2/3 quality players maybe defenders from Italy thanks to Don Paratici (hats off to him, Bentancur and Kulusevski changed the second half of the season) and 2/3 squad players. Off load - Ndombele (France somewhere),Winks (Fulham),CCV (Celtic) Reguilon (Villareal),Lo Celso (Villareal) Emerson Royal (Sunderland). Add in the Stadium naming rights, now we're post Covid and NFL, Boxing, Rugby, Music, Curling and tiddlywinks back in the stadium, CL football, £157.7m Premier League money this season, CL money next season, Match day ticket and sausage roll revenue and we could be talking.

But at the moment it's good PR........

Could get for not much money - Eriksen, Bale and Aarons from Norwich. I'd be up for that as quality squad/impact sub players and three more real quality in addition.

No thanks on Bale. Eriksen, I'd be absolutely delighted to see return, but I have an unfounded gut feeling he'll stay at Brentford.

Aarons is definitely one I'd look at seriously if, God forbid, I was making decisions for the club. I'm a little surprised he's still at Norwich. Also Djed Spence if Forest don't go up. If they do, I'd imagine they'd have some kind of right of first refusal and would sign him permanently.
