Andre Gomes

Sometimes, the inability to sign a player is viewed as a blessing in disguise. Falling in that category is the latest news about £22.5m rated Barcelona midfielder, Andre Gomes. The Portuguese midfielder was on the verge of a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer on the deadline day in August, only for the move to break down because of Barcelona pulling off in the last minute.

According to talkSPORT, the Catalan midfielder is being lined up for a move by Italian club Juventus in the January transfer window.

Gomes moved to Barcelona only last year from Valencia but was linked with a loan switch to North London on the deadline day. Part of that is because of the midfielder’s inability to nail down a permanent place at the Camp Nou.

The midfielder continues to be on the periphery at the Catalan club, making only four starts for Barcelona this season. He is on the hunt for more regular action, especially with the World Cup year demanding regular on-field action.

The report talks about how Gomes had to stay back at Barcelona after the failed switch to Tottenham. But, his agent Jorge Mendes is eager to find a new club for his client in the January transfer window to increase his game time. On the agenda is a move to Juventus in the winter as the Italian club are reportedly interested in a loan deal with an option to buy.

But, is it in Tottenham’s interest that the deal did not go through? It is tough to blame Gomes because he had very little game time to showcase his true worth at Barcelona. Critics may point to the fact that at Valencia, the 24-year-old managed only 2 goals and 4 assists throughout an entire La Liga season, just one year before joining Barcelona.

Considering what we already have in stock, Gomes cannot be considered as a value-add to Tottenham. Gomes may not be the player that could fit our squad. Let’s just say that the event of us not signing the midfielder has worked out to our advantage.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.

(Video) Watch Tottenham’s new stadium’s artificial pitch lights functioning as work continues

Tottenham stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is inching towards completion as another new time-lapse video of our home was put up on YouTube.

The latest video shows a lot of pavement work being done outside. And the most interesting aspect of the clip is of our pitch.

Cranes can be seen operating on the surface inside the stadium. Once the vehicles leave, our artificial lighting can be seen moving about and illuminating the surface.

There is a lot of work still to be done on the exteriors and Tottenham haven’t communicated as to when our new home would be completed.

We had reported that Spurs quashed suggestions that the venue would not be ready before 2019.

Another allegation related to drug and alcohol abuse by the workers in the stadium was also refuted.

Tottenham had earlier claimed that the venue would be complete by 15th September, which was our clash against Liverpool.

Although a lot of effort is being taken to ensure the home is finished as quickly as possible, it is frustrating to see the stadium not looking close to completion as the pitch hasn’t been installed yet.
