    Spurs to offload Players


  2. #2
    There is a very, very strong rumour circulating amongst the Burnley staff that SD has told Riggs and Garlick we must do all we can to bring Tripps back home. Goalkeepers are to be culled and the rest of the "freshening up" will come from the Development squad.

    I must also add that Taylor and McNeil look to have solved our left hand side for the next few seasons, Trippier and JBG would seriously sort out the right hand flank. Wood and Barnes have finally got their act together, Westwood is showing his EPL experience, Corky is still running his socks off and Mee and Tarkowski look a great double act in front of Heaton.

    Beat Cardiff on Saturday and we will all wonder WTF we have been moaning about it!

    I'm amazed Spurs are allegedly prepared to release him, but even if they are, I can't believe there won't be several clubs in for him that can blow us out of the water financially. I'd love to see him back here, I'd also love a Porsche, a villa on the Cayman Islands and a couple of nubiles catering for my every whim. Dream on eh.

    We need to offload Hart, Ward, Brady, Hendrick, D4, Lennon, Wells, Walters, Crouch and maybe Lowton.

    But what about Dyche Alto ? Has he redeemed himself, or do we still need new manager ?

    It seems that Pope being the most valuable goalkeeping asset is being offloaded. Wardy may not get a new contract, Brady continues to disappoint, Hendrick has one year left, Walters has already gone and we have claimed the injury insurance (PHEW!). Crouch will leave, if Trippier comes either Lowton or Bardsley will go, Lennon is off to Leeds in all probability, D4 is goosed, Hart will stay, leaving Wells to sort. Agyei will be given the fourth striker role, we will keep Vydra and I am certain Wells will be sold to a Championship club. This is not my own speculation, but comes from a very trusted inside "source".
    We are desperately looking for a left back to replace Ward, but the kid who is currently out on loan at Swindon might get the heads up. Exciting times ahead?

    SD wants Tripper and the lad makes no secret of his desire to come back. Miracles can happen; I've just ordered the new 911 as a retirement gift to myself, not at all sure Mrs S. is going to go with the two nubile wenches catering to your every whim though sinkov?

    For me he has not redeemed himself yet Sinkov, he needs to be less rigid in his tactics, yesterday he played it on the deck which looked and was effective, he reverts too much to hoof ball, especially when he's been beaten well after just one game of playing it on the deck, also his "eye" for a good player leaves a lot to be desired IMO.

    Canít believe Hart is staying BT when heís been treated as he has, also the money in America will suit him.
    Iíd like us to make Pope no1 keeper and keep him tbh.
    Iím not as keen or convinced on JBG as some, he goes missing for large parts of games quite a lot and I think is too lightweight, gets pushed off easy.

    Said before I like Cork technically very good footballer but either needs a change in shape of how we play or a very big strong athletic midfielder with him.

    I have a feeling that Tarky may leave if the right offer comes his way this summer so Gibson May get his chance after all.

    Bardsley I like but can he do another year at this level ?

    I personally think we still need a large amount of in coming players to compete other wise next year will be a lot like this one has been ( providing we survive ).

    I hope we have some good players in development squad if thatís what we are hoping to do as this league is a take no prisoners 100mph fight from the first whistle and itís a lot to ask young lads to step up to week in week out.

    Hart will go to the MLS at the end of the season.

    In the style of Kevin Keegan, I would love it if we got Tripps back, but I'd also be very surprised. Here's hoping.

    Thing is Alto, he might have his faults, but he doesn't have to be a good manager/coach, just better than three of the others.

    You're probably right BT, even if I pointed out they could help with the housework it's still going to be a non-starter, I'll just settle for the villa and the Porche then. SD might want Tripps, the lad might want to come back, exactly the same with Jay last summer, but last time I checked Jay was still at West Brom, and I can't see a WC semi-finalist coming as cheap as Jay would. This is going into Burton's Window territory.

    Not sure on the Spurs valuation or if we had a first knock "buy back" clause, but at £20 million and we ship a few out to boost the pot this one could happen. Remember we still have the Vokes cash in the bank!

    Donít forget as well Sinkov he canít come because it would be Joe Hart all over again, up setting dressing room because heís on more money than the others.

    I know they can be be all over the place with their valuations, but TM have him at £31.5m, and I think they might be close on this one, it's way beyond our means, and that's before you get to wages. Come on BT, you know what floats Mr G's boat, he'd rather stick pins in his eyes than sanction this one. I'd love Tripps back, I'll drive down and pick him up myself to save the taxi fare, but it just ain't gonna happen.

    From what I'm hearing army, it's not just the money with Joe. Matelot hinted at it as well.

    As you know I'm not one for staying in the PL with just any old performance, and as you have stated in a previous post the dire stuff really put you off, again I understand Clubs/Teams having odd games where they play poorly, but Burnley have too many for my and obviously your liking

    It's all a bit weird to me Alto, we played Spurs off the park at the Turf, leathered Brighton and Bournemouth away from home, hammered the Cherries at home, should have won at Old Trafford and then looked like we had never kicked a ball before at home to Leicester.
    Now we have a settled team playing in SD's favoured 4-4-2 formation things are looking up. We will stay up and next season promises to be interesting to say the least.
