Spurs & All or Nothing...?



  • I'm intrigued to see if the new documentary series has inspired anyone to buy/sell any Spurs players?
    Seeing slight rises in a few of their prices and tightening of spreads, however it could be coincidental with the start of the season at the weekend.



  • I would hazard a guess that Son Heung Min will be around £2.20 prior to Spurs first kick off at the weekend.

    I did notice a couple of 300 buys go through for Deli Alli and immediately though that it was as a result of this doc



  • Tanganga jumped up quite a bit recently. Episode 4 is basically all about him and his rise to the first-team, probably that which caused the spike.



  • @Meridismo04 The IPO for Tanganga went horribly wrong, with far too many shares issued at a low price. This has “artificially” limited his price ever since. People are now gambling that when the sale queue is dissolved he will jump up in price.



  • @Meridismo04 I think his recent spike is due to unlisting and trying to raise his price before order books. Same with a lot of players with very deep queues like Pogba and Bruno.



  • @Martyn-B @Coleyscrooge Fair point lads.



  • @Advinculas-Index Dele came out like a rocket after Jose arrived, some buys will surely be off the back of that!

    Tanganga episode interesting, not sure how much he will feature in a fully fit squad in PL but surely will in early stages of knockout comps.



  • What is it a comedy?



  • @Pez More of a tragicomedy

    I liked some of Jose's honesty in this but you can tell it must have been very carefully edited and engineered.



  • @TotalPunt Jose is very much the star of the show. Very Portuguese David Brent - just wish he was living in a hotel like at Manchester - he'd be full Partridge.

    I'm starting to think that Levy brought Jose in purely to star in the documentary and to 'expand the brand' so to speak.

    I think when you watch these docs you realise how little personality this generation of footballers has when the manager is the only one worth watching for entertainment value.

    Harry Kane's pre game team talks are the cringiest things I've seen in a long time.



  • I also don't get reactionary buys from this documentary. Why are people buying up based on things that happened a year ago? I get the Tanganga one maybe as the doc delves a bit deeper into him but yeah, any other players I'm not sure why this doc would make you buy them.



  • @howsthebacon I thought the same.. I’ve been in many a changing room at semi pro level & have had ex pros as managers.... Kane left me cold & so underwhelming.

    He wouldn’t be my Captain... if Sissoko had all the influence & was a team player... he’s my man



  • @OneBigHoliday oh mate don't get me started on Sissoko haha, you're talking to a Newcastle fan. The bloke is a beast when he can be bothered, not someone I'd ever make captain though. The way he conducted himself at Newcastle was appalling, I've never known a player so obviously use televised games to give a shit, he was one of our worst players in other games.

    Not much choice for skipper in that Spurs team, Jose is right, too many nice guys. Maybe Jan or Toby as they are at least likely to get stuck in and probably speak better English than Harry.

    I'm not having a dig at his speech impediment, it's just the dullness of what he says - it's as if Jose has told him to swear in those pre game talks and it's so unnatural and embarrassing.



  • @howsthebacon he is very bland..no personality.. that’s fine,he is what he is...but he’s not a leader.

    Dynamics of a changing room can be delicate..I could see he brings a harmony.. but would he dig someone out.. I doubt it.

    I’ve been in changing rooms where 1 new player has upset the whole dynamic & undermined 5yrs good work..& that was amateur level.

    I told people to bin him.. in the end I left.

    We had a new guy join our Saturday league side.

    We were only pub team standard, First game he played we lost to a team of lads all much younger than us, and twice as fit. Usual P-taking banter in the dressing room afterwards, until he pipes up 'I've played football for a lot of teams and represented GB at Taekwando and I've never seen people so happy after losing'.

    Cue a 2 minute chorus of 'win or lose we're on the booze'

    He never came back.
    And tbf he was slower and no better than the rest of us.



  • @Munchie63 I get that from both sides... he’s there to win... you’re there to play/socialise whatever the result.

    That professionalism.

    I had Tony Galvin as my manager.. he didn’t fuck about,ok we were semi pro.. but that wasn’t his attitude.

    Not many ex pros in my experience are worth getting in semi pro/good standard pyramid leagues... as managers though.. the other way.



  • @OneBigHoliday I mean don't get me wrong, he is the closest thing to Shearer in the modern game. Shearer was dull as dish water but he was a Geordie and as a Toon fan we loved him so I can imagine as a Spurs fan Kane must be amazing, personality or not. But from a neutral perspective, you just want your elite players to have a bit of spunk about them. The swagger of Ronaldo, the smile of Ronaldinho, the ego of Zlatan. Kane is just so generic, even when he scores his boring celebration just winds me up, it's like someone made a player on FIFA and left everything on default.

    I remember getting behind him a bit during the WC cos I respected his professionalism in the face of all the fouls from Panama and Colombia but I did just want him to square up to them or celebrate in their face but he's such a bloody good guy!



  • @Munchie63 I mean at least that's Saturday League, nothing worse than a Sunday League player taking it way too serious. By all means, warm up, prepare properly, give your all on the pitch but afterwards...it's fucking Sunday League, win or lose you have a laugh and go for a pint.

    Edit: for the record also go for a drink if your draw in case that wasn't implied.

    Sundays were mad. The state of us half the time having been out til 3am.

    Saturdays were better. Most of the team played together for 10 years...still mates now. We had a league title win, a runners-up and a county cup final (lost on Pens) in that time. Always wanted to in but loved the social side too.



  • @Munchie63 where did you play? I'm 31 and I've been out about 8 months with a fucking tendon damage in my glute - literal pain in the arse. Hope I can get back out there before I'm done like. I play in the Southern Sunday league in London.
