Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has moved to back Harry Redknapp’s stance that key players will not be sold.

Excellent campaigns froom star players Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael Van der Vaart has seen the three of them linked with moves to bigger clubs with Manchester United, Manchester City and Barcelona all thought to be sniffing around Spurs consistent performers.

However, Levy has vowed to not entertain any bid for the key trio insisting that he wants the club to build on their success, not dismantle in from the inside.

In an open letter to supporters, Levy said “We have spent years and hundreds of millions of pounds investing in our first-team squad and in creating a settled team.

“Having quality players means they automatically attract attention from other clubs – but I can assure you that we have no reason to sell, and every intention of retaining, our key players.

“We shall simply not entertain any approaches for these players.”

The Spurs Chairman also confirmed that a number of players will be sold in the transfer window in order to streamline one of the Premier League’s largest squads.

“We currently have one of the largest squads in the Premier League and, given the 25-man squad rule, it is no longer practical to retain players who are unlikely to qualify within that limit.” Levy added.

“We shall, therefore, look to reduce the number of these players during the coming summer transfer window in order to operate both effectively and efficiently.”

The likes of Sebastien Bassong, Alan Hutton and Robbie Keane are expected to leave White Hart Lane this summer as a major clear-out begins.

“You would be crazy to sack this man” – Former Tottenham manager backs Pochettino despite tough start

Tim Sherwood claims it would be crazy to sack Mauricio Pochettino

Tottenham haven’t been great this season and returned to action after the international break with a 1-1 draw against Watford.

This was our seventh straight game without a win this season, and there is speculation about Mauricio Pochettino’s future at the club (h/t Daily Star).

There are several players who are free agents at the end of the season, and most of our stars are not in form too.

Spurs have one point from two Champions League ties and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Colchester United.

However, former Spurs manager Tim Sherwood claims that the Argentine should not be sacked from his position while speaking Bein Sports (h/t Daily Star):

“You would be crazy to sack this man.

“He’s one of the best managers in the world and I think he has built that reputation.

“If they were to change, it would be difficult to find a man who buys into the philosophy of the whole football club.”

Mourinho not the right man for the job

Former Manchester United and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hasn’t worked since getting the sack at Old Trafford last season, but Sherwood didn’t see the Portuguese in London:

“I don’t think they will go to Mourinho because I think he has his own way of doing things.

“He wants to be very dominant.”

That might not work with Daniel Levy, and we don’t spend a lot in the transfer windows. Mourinho is capable of winning trophies but he also splashes a lot of cash, something that Pochettino has kept in check.

Pochettino has to be handed more time to get things right, and he has worked wonders in the past.

“It is too far away” – Pochettino urges Tottenham to be ready ahead of January transfer window

Mauricio Pochettino wants club to be ready for January spending

Mauricio Pochettino wants Tottenham to be ready for the January window after the 1-1 draw with Watford.

Spurs made a few signings in the summer but things haven’t worked out well for us. Tottenham lie seventh in the Premier League and have won just once in their past seven fixtures.

Pochettino was asked about possible January plans and the Argentine suggested he was happy with the team (h/t Sky Sports):

“We are not going to get any benefit to talk about January, it is too far away, we have got a lot of games to play.

“That is the structure of the club that is working and thinking and they need to be ready if we need to do something, if not we keep going, but I am happy with the squad, I am happy with the players.”

The manager added that he couldn’t guess what would happen in January and further claimed that they might not move if the club goes on a winning run.

Pochettino wanted the team to concentrate on the clash against Red Star, which could be a tough game given our European struggles this season.

Spurs need to plan for the winter

Pochettino hasn’t made too many moves in the winter window during his Tottenham career, but he needs a few more signings.

Our defence looks a little old now with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen struggling a bit. We could do with a right-back and another support striker for Harry Kane too.

Hopefully, things work out for us once the January window opens, and we land some quality players to turn the season around.

Hawk-Eye apologises for major VAR error after Tottenham’s goal against Watford

Hawk-Eye apologises for major error during Tottenham-Watford draw

Hawk-Eye Innovations have apologised for the graphic put on the giant screen during Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with Watford.

Spurs were trailing to an Abdoulaye Doucoure effort in the sixth minute and seemed to have levelled the score thanks to Dele Alli.

The Englishman took advantage of a mix up in the Watford defence and scored in the 86th minute.

However, play was stopped as the referee checked with VAR for a possible handball in the build-up by Alli.

The official then signalled the goal stood, but the giant screen posted an image of “No Goal” which led to a lot of confusion amongst the fans.

Hawk-Eye Innovations tweeted that they were working with PGMOL and the Premier League to ensure such mistakes aren’t repeated.

Spurs were lucky to get the point

Watford were great at the back and even though we struck the woodwork a few times, we weren’t all that great.

Tottenham need to play better in the upcoming weeks, and it will be interesting to see if this point turns our season around.

We started with a pretty strong team and three at the back, but that was changed at half-time as we were struggling.

Alli did show the right desire to get into the box and score, and we need similar effort in the coming weeks.

VAR has been on our side a lot of times but we have been hurt by the technology too, like the Serge Aurier goal disallowed at Leicester City.

“Do you think it is a moment to talk about that?” – Poch irked with this question after Spurs’ 1-1 draw with Watford

Mauricio Pochettino unhappy regarding question on Amazon documentary

Tottenham had to fight hard for the point against Watford on Saturday. Spurs were trailing for most of the game and lacked the penetration to get behind the Hornets’ defence regularly.

However, Dele Alli scored in the final minutes and we were on the end of another decision from VAR. There was initial confusion in the stadium as the scoreboard showed “No Goal” but the referee allowed the effort and the match ended 1-1.

Spurs announced that we are the subjects of the latest ‘All of Nothing’ series from Amazon.

However, Mauricio Pochettino claimed the decision was taken by the club (h/t Football.london):

“Do you think it is a moment to talk about that? I am focused only in trying to stick with giving my best to turn the moment.

“That was a club decision to do a documentary about Tottenham and me as a manager I need to give my best to help the club to do what the club want.”

Not the best time for the documentary

Pochettino’s frustration regarding the documentary is understandable since the team haven’t done all that well this season.

Stuffing cameras all around the dressing room is a major invasion of privacy. Concentrating for the players and staff might be difficult too with the crew in every corner of the ground.

It would be a major surprise if Spurs aren’t allowed to view the doc first before it is released, and hopefully, this doesn’t make our season any worse.
