    I feel its really hard to get picked up by a team when you pass the age of around 13....it just seems harder to be picked up when you are older and expected to perform at an academie level compared to other people who may have been at academies since they were like 7!

    Also you heard it here first the youngster you most want to be looking out for in the future is Paul Anderson of Liverpool. He was at Hull this season but we sold him to Liverpool for a sum of which I heard could go up to £1mil based on appearances etc. Also we got John Welsh from them as well as part of the deal! He is awsome!

    I haven't argued anything.
    Indeed, it's pretty pathetic by these so called 'fans', they could probably start an argument in an empty room.

    All that money and i would be amazed if they finish any higher in the league in the next 5 years.... Prove me wrong though...
    By now, you should know that spending money doesn't necessarily equal success, or maybe you didn't know that. It's about buying the right players and Spurs haven't always done that in that past but as long as they got it, they will spend it, whether you like it or not.

    and everyone knows they'll need more than just money to break into the top 4, which is a league of its own i.e top 4 then everybody else. Altough they did jump 4 places from last season, can't blame you for not noticing :rolleyes:

    Please delete Arsenal from the original post. There is a case for Liverpool fluking it but not for Arsenal fluking it (so far)
    What is it with your agenda against our champions league success? Like he said, it was sarcastic.

    I think I know it - Play an International match as England coach at Wembley stadium?

    His first home game was a friendly against Spain at Villa Park and last was Poland at Old Trafford.

    It's not any old shirt deal. The 'top 10 in the world' thing prompted me to start this thread, and not just post in the Spurs one. It's an important enough piece of news to warrant a thread. If you've read the posts you will have noticed that there has been discussion about other clubs' sponsorship deals.

    Those threads of yours a) weren't funny (as usual), b) were Chelsea specific and c) were intended to grab universal attention (as usual) which is why you didn't put them in the Chelsea thread.
    lol

    a) Im no comedian but at least a few people actually indicated they found it funny by posts such as 'haha'.

    b) Werent Chelsea specific because if the player had played for any other club I would have posted it

    c) Grab attention on an internet forum? I was just trying to provide amusement, which I did

    Peter Taylor, fresh from steering Hull City to the dizzy heights of eighteenth in what is basically the second division, is the latest favourite to replace Alan Curbishley at Charlton. If he takes the job he'll appoint Ray Wilkins as his assistant.

    Niall Quinn is desperate to give Martin O'Neill the Sunderland hotseat when his consortium assume control - so desperate, in fact, that he's offered O'Neill part-time hours, agreeing to assistants John Robertson and Steve Walford handling the bulk of the training.

    Middlesbrough's Massimo Maccarone isn't sticking around to see whether Terry Venables takes over at the Riverside, and who can blame him? He's weighing up offers from Empoli and Club Bruges.

    Jose Mourinho, having brought the Michael Ballack transfer saga to a happy ending for CSKA London, has claimed: "We have a big striker coming to join us." That'll be big Peter Crouch then. Or maybe Andriy Shevchenko. Or possibly Samuel Eto'o, for whom Mr Abramovich is willing to give Barcelona £35m.

    Rafa Benitez was so impressed with West Ham's Yossi Benayoun during the Greatest FA Cup Final Since Sky Have Had The Rights that he's going to offer £6m for him to get his hubcaps nicked in Liverpool. He's also looking at a £5m bid for Birmingham's Jermaine Pennant, but he'll have to battle it out with Fulham. Chris Coleman is planning for life after Steed Malbranque and counting out the £1m needed for Hearts's Rudi Skacel.

    Bryan Robson's so desperate to secure the signature of Cardiff's Cameron Jerome that he's offering to swap him with Jason Koumas - surely an offer Dave Jones would find difficult to refuse.

    Speaking of Camerons, the Colin variety is goodbyeing Wolves, having been touted around the Championship by draw-specialist Glenn Hoddle. He can now be found trundling across the Midlands to Coventry, where a two-year contract awaits his signature.

    Harry Redknapp reckons Duncan Ferguson will reconsider his January decision not to sign for Portsmouth, now that he's out of contract.

    And Spurs want to sign Sunderland keeper Ben Alnwick for £400,000 plus any one of Andy Reid, Callum Davenport, Phil Ifil, Mark Yeates or Marton Fulop.

    i'm pretty excited about this news... in all honesty, spurs still is an unknown quantity, but there is some degree of undeniable potential. they could be anything from a major premiership contender in the next five years to being a completely middle of the road team like the spurs pre 2004.

    one thing about spurs i've felt in previous years though is that there was always a distinct lack of financial power compared to other clubs. we used to try and get a lot of players on frees and/or settle for a couple of £2-4m players rather than going for big ones. with this news, and the rumours going around that we're prepared to pay over £10m for berbatov, stuff's just looking a lot more promising that it has done in a decade or two.

    But Wembley was only built in 1923. Still, it's better than anything i can come up with

    EPL, Serie A, and La Liga are the top 3, but its very hard to split them as most people will say the one they watch is the best.
    I agree, these are the top 3 leagues in Europe and there's not much in between them but I don't agree in the second part that people automatically choose the league they watch the most.

    I would say the last two season (including this one) the EPL has edge it with two consecutive English teams in the CL final and two English teams in both European cups this season and they're attracting some of the best players in the world. The two years before, i would've said Seria A with both Milan teams especially Inter improving and puting 3 Italians teams in the semi-finals and 2 in the final of the CL. 2 years before that, I'd say it was La Liga when Real and Valencia were dominating the CL. La Liga also looks like it's about to edge the premiership at the moment since they could be champions of European cups this year.

    In terms of competitive leagues (last couple of seasons), it's Seria A, La Liga and EPL.

    c) Grab attention on an internet forum? I was just trying to provide amusement, which I did
    a) You found my post funny then 'lol'? I don't think so. I don't know about the Robben video, but the Drogba Oscar thing really wasn't funny at all, maybe people 'laughed' because it was a topical incident or to show their approval.

    b) So you're telling me you would have posted similar material about Diomansy Kamara's dives, or better still Cole and Pires? :rolleyes:

    c) Your posts are just antagonising, written to draw attention to a particular incident that you take issue with, or feel particularly strong about- e.g embarrassing Spurs, Eboue the best full-back in the world, Drogba dives, Reyes doesn't dive, Spurs are a small club, keep this forum tidy by posting in the club thread etc etc... hypocracy here there and everywhere.
