    We'll rarely fill it. The season ticket waiting list is 30000+ in crude numbers but I doubt all of them would take a ST if offered tomorrow.
    Don't forget that a lot of people are unwilling to commit to a season ticket for various reasons.

    West Ham have a 60k stadium on the way as well and I think the situation with Spurs is the same as theirs - it depends on how the club is doing on the pitch. A lot of floating fans/JCLs/corporates (delete as appropriate) will simply pick whichever club is more successful. West Ham have more to worry about than Spurs on this front.

    Davies. There was a rumour about Draxler but that won't happen. Spurs desperately need a left wing and another centre back as well as a striker.

    They've got serious work to do!

    Yeah. I always love keeping an eye on Spurs so I hope they do well.

    I do however, think Soldado will shine this season. Not sure why he didn't score more last season.

    Levy will fill it, without a shadow of a doubt. Yes, that oft-quoted waiting list is BS designed to tempt investors. But there is definitely demand for at least another 10K season tickets no doubt, plus in nearly all cases more match-day tickets and that's before you consider the possibility of a price drop, new ST holders bringing kids along, etc. I predict we'll fill it up for every League and Champions League match we play.

    I agree, but not in that way. Imo if Spurs can hold out this transfer window without a single signing, but also not let anyone go, would consider it a success.

    The team were injury plagued horrifically last season there were points where we were literally playing a second team. However of course if Levy could somehow offload Soldado for 15+ million, that would be great... But wouldn't a left back be better than anywhere else? I mean we have Zeki Fryers and Rose who are pretty bad tbh, and Jan can play there but it's a waste of his talent. Granted he had a bad season this year but I think he had a falling out with Sherwood, iirc. And going from one of the best centre halves in the league last season and being replaced next season must be pretty demoralising

    Great to see we've finally signed Davies, much needed signing. Nice to have Vorm as well, I can only assume Pochettino plans on rotating the squad a bit for the cups.

    Well done, you deliberatly misquoted me to make a bad point. Congrats.

    That's not to say we won't in 2017 or whenever the stadium eventually opens. We've finished 4th twice, no reason to think it can't happen again (or that we can't win the Europa League). Not saying it's guaranteed, but it's equally foolish to call it impossible.

    Naughton's red card was so harsh. There was a near identical incident in the United Swansea game and nothing was given at all.

    I'm such a fan of Eric Dier so I'm glad his debut went the way it did for him, even though at the same time it was a little bit difficult to watch because it means he's no longer in our league.

    I remember reading last summer that both yourselves and Fulham were interested in signing him so I'm made up for him that he's finally had his big move, but I really didn't think it would happen after the season he had last season.

    Bags of potential but unfortunately for him it just didn't work out whilst Jardim was in charge, but that is why I thought maybe this season with Marco Silva around he stood a good chance of becoming a key figure this season for Sporting - which was something I was looking forward to watching. Hopefully he'll continue to impress for you lot and he gets the games he deserves to get. You have got an absolute gem for a cracking price too.

    He's brilliant. Spurs have a fair tradition of wing backs dating from the 60s so I'm glad he gets forward and puts an attacking shift in. His scoring header yesterday was sublime. Touch of the Bale about him - not, of course, in terms of impressing early on in his career here, but scoring decent goals when starting in the full back role. Great price indeed!

    Not sure how we'll fare against Liverpool next week. Massive test, especially at the back with the arrival of Balotelli, but I reckon we should keep Rose in and have Davies start against Limassol instead. The 4-2-3-1 works for us but being a sentimentalist I'd like to see Soldado get a bit more playing time, maybe in a 4-1-3-2. Two up front worked excellently for us when Modric, Adebayor and van der Vaart played together.
