Davinson Sanchez: Tottenham agree deal for Ajax defender - BBC Sport

Pochetinno wants 4 signings apparently.

I guess when they realised the draw for the Champions League was this coming Wednesday it was a kick up the arse.

Yes we know its only West Ham & Swansea and could we compete with Stoke on a wet Tuesday night?
A tale of 2 halves. Swansea frustrated Utd with some good pressing in the 1st and still played good enough until around 79 mins then game over.

Flattering scoreline, but considering the issues we had with draws last year, it is nice to see us scoring goals.

Any strikers on the shopping list?

We are off to a bar tomorrow evening so we can watch the Spurs game, hopefully a good time to be playing Chelsea.

Hasta luego chicas!

Next up is another promising young defender apparently:

I have a sneaky suspicion that this means the club can't afford to keep Alderweireld beyond this season.

Didn't see it but hopefully Lukaku managed some assists too as he is my fantasy captain for now.

Come on Stoke City!

Shooting wasn't our problem. Sticking it past the keeper was. Lukaku is everything Rashford isn't. Namely good at beating the keeper.

Good day, decent game, great atmosphere. 4-0 was about right given Swansea played for 0-0 - and the "we support our local team" was again sung without irony given their 9000 average attendance when not in the Premier League. You backward sheep ****ing twats.

#Wengerin - please stay. Comedy gold.

Looking forward to Spurs v Chelsea tomorrow. When I say "looking forward" I actually mean "going to be on the golf course because I don't enjoy watching mid-table teams play"...

Is it only too big for Spurs? How do the opponents (who aren't used to it) manage?
