I would be more concerned with Pep's purchases if I were you. You arent pissed off that he has spent a quarter of a billion already? :???:

Insisting that Leicester city was a mistake is comical. You'd rather expect less from your team just to justify why Leicester city beat Spurs to the title 2 yrs ago. Leicester city was not a mistake. It's clear and convincing evidence that even in the most unlikely scenario, winning is possible.

Chief, look at the past 5 to 29 seasons. You can see a pattern. Those who are perennial top 4 and those who are making steady progress. Then compare Leicesters win. You'd find out it's an anomaly. It is not systematic. It was not planned. The following season, they returned to their usual position. The reverse happened to Arsenal, dropping out of the top 4.

What is remarkable to me is that no one has come in for Moussa Dembele...

His age, probably but I'm glad no one has

Today all the rumors making the rounds was Ross Barkley heading to Spurs. I don't know he will be joining Spurs especially as Winks is now back on the mend and the midfield unit is still intact. My concern is the defense as we have CBs getting up there in age.

This is going to be the defining season for Janssen. He has to come correct or else he'll be gone in January.

As I said as far back as April, Spurs have approached Everton and Poch is desperate for him.

Not that desperate enough to make him the highest paid player ahead of Kane. He can continue sitting his behind on Everton's bench. If he won't accept 70K then we don't need him.

It seems Spurs' dithering has cost you to lose out on Foyth

Kyle Walker claims Tottenham lacked 'the edge' to win trophies as he targets glory with Manchester City
Kyle Walker joined Manchester City last week and is targeting trophies
He narrowly missed out on the Premier League with Spurs in last two seasons
Walker says he moved to City for silverware and believes they have 'the edge'
New City defender says he will not be fazed by his £50million transfer fee

Kyle Walker believes Manchester City have 'the edge' that will enable him to win the trophies he missed out on at Tottenham.
The 27-year-old England right back joined City in a £50million deal from Spurs last week having not won a major piece of silverware during his eight years at White Hart Lane.
After narrowly missing out on the Premier League title in the last two seasons, Walker is convinced he has joined a club capable of delivering success.

'I feel, with the players and manager we've got, we need to start picking up silverware – that is what I came here for,' he said.
'I was unfortunate at Tottenham. We made it so close in the last two seasons, it was just that sometimes we were unlucky. Sometimes we just didn't have that little bit of edge.


But I am hoping with the players we have here. With the world class players we have here, we will have that edge and go and lift a trophy, which is what I want to do in my career.

'I am not going to sit here and disrespect Tottenham one bit because what they have done for me over the years is fantastic and I am more than grateful. The way they have made the stepping stones in the right direction over the years I have been there is crazy. But it is a team. I am a Manchester City player now. I am fully focussed on that and picking up silverware with them.'

Speaking on City's pre-season tour of the US, Walker insisted that he will not be fazed by the big transfer fee and has no regrets that has left Spurs during one of the most promising periods in the club's recent history.

'Coming from Sheffield (United), moving down there when I was 19 to coming back up here for that amount of money… it is a big fee but it is nothing to do with me,' he said.

'I just have to play the game I have played in the last two seasons under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham. That is what has got me to where I am now. I don't need to change anything, I just need to add to it and build on it and build on it in the right way.
'I feel this is the right step in my career, for me and my family, to come here and test myself against some of the best players in the world.

'This would have been my ninth season. Sometimes you need to come out of your comfort zone a little bit. Obviously with Tripps (Kieran Trippier) there, we pushed each other and played really well.

'But when you have been somewhere for nine years, I feel that I needed a new challenge. I feel this was the right club to come and challenge myself because the stepping stones they have made over the past years have been phenomenal. I wanted to be a part of it.'
Walker admitted that the opportunity to work under Pep Guardiola was a major factor in his decision to join City. He added: 'The manager was a big thing for me. I wanted to come and play under him.

'Working with Dani Alves and all the top players at Barcelona, plus (Philipp) Lahm at Bayern Munich, that was a big attraction for me. I feel he can give me some knowledge.

I'm not saying Mauricio Pochettino didn't because he catapulted my game. I just feel to get that little bit further, if I can take the knowledge off him and come and play here, it was an opportunity I could not turn down.
'I think it says it all in his name. The clubs he has worked at, the character, the trophies that he has won. It says it all about him as a person.

'Just working with him a few times on the training ground. He is really enthusiastic about what he wants to do. He has a plan in his head about where he wants us to be and how he wants us to play. I just think we need to buy into that and I am sure the trophies will follow.'

The irony being, City are nowhere near Champions League ready and in spite of their additions thus far, have yet to shield that soft under belly. In terms of trophy winning ability, yes they have improved their prospects, but are far from favourites.

One cannot deny Walker for wanting trophies. It's what he did not say, just as much as what he said one should focus on. Man City won nothing last season and finished behind Spurs. Maybe they have a better chance of lifting a trophy ahead of Spurs but that was what Walker was supposed to do for Spurs. Is he relying on other players at City to win it for him or is he saying other players at Spurs did not pull their weight?

In any case, he refused to mention the doubling of his wages as probably the major factor in his move. We all change employers to improve our remuneration. Walker failing to mention this as well as trophies is insincere.
