Talking about a 6th option when we're not in Europe and with a manager who has his favourites (i.e McGinn) seems luxury/waste to me.

You've said yourself that two (Sanson/Nakamba) appear to be superfluous and Tim will struggle to get many starts with JJ, Meatball, Luiz and Kamara all ahead of him.

If we're bringing-in one worth £30m+ then surely a couple of the above players will have to leave.

A 6th choice for an area where we're playing 3 is just good squad management not superfluous. The people wanting another striker when we have 4 in the squad and play 1 up front are more guilty of that.

Until there is a defined style of play and we see the current squad delivering to their potential, I wouldn’t be spending anymore money. SG needs to prove he can work with the gifts he already has before splashing more cash.

I actually agree with this...very true

Nope that’s flawed thinking from a club management point of view. They either back Gerrard - and fans can debate the merits of that - or they don’t, in which case he shouldn’t be in role. But you don’t end up with this weird quasi position going, we know we have areas in the squad that are weaker than they need to be but we’re not doing anything as we’re testing you before we spend any money.

agree although the only area that needs real attention is up front.

I back getting a quality 8 in as we are far too samey in that position. Up top, short of bringing in a totally different style of striker which is what we need, we should sell to buy. Someone would pay £15m for Ings surely.

I heard we're interested for a loan of a Chelsea player!
That is all I know!
And it's one who came on yesterday!
The contenders then will be
Gallagher
Loftus Cheek
Armando Broja striker
Or Christian Pulisic


And it's only a loan

Heard from someone in the know, or read an article online?

The response is that Chelsea player looking at his options and Villa are one who would be keen for a loan
Anything doing won't happen to late and we're not only ones.
And an interesting thing also was that Lampards Everton after a host of Chelsea players.
But not the same as the one we like.

FDJ to Chelsea provides us with the aforementioned
 loan of a midfielder... There's a bit of competition to happen before that, and it's all very complicated with the Barcelona move.  But if things fall into place on all sides they SG would win over a lot of fans if we get the Chelsea guy. As its Steven's pull that would get the transfer over the line.

Roberto Soldado. That's who De Thomas reminds me of.

The biggest waste of money Spurs ever spent?
