Watford have been one of the oddities in the Premier League, thanks to their approach of sacking managers and still, somehow, stay in the top flight. There is no dearth of talent at Watford, and one player who has been lighting up Vicarage Road has been Abdoulaye Doucoure.

The 25-year-old had a starring role as his side demolished Chelsea 4-1 and it seems the Malian has caught the attention of Mauricio Pochettino.

A report from the Daily Mail claims that our manager was at Vicarage Road and was impressed by the performance of the midfielder. Tottenham would be looking to bolster their midfield next season and if we are to sign the powerhouse from Mali, we would have to pay a record transfer fee to get him over to London.

A Big Battle Brewing For The Services Of The Watford Man

The report also claims that we would be facing a lot of competition from two other Premier League sides, Arsenal and Liverpool, but the price for Doucoure would not be too high, given Watford’s record sale is only £20m, which they got by selling Odion Ighalo. Doucoure was bought for £8m from Rennes and Spurs or any other club looking to sign him should pay at least three to four times that amount.

Doucoure is one player who seems to be built for the Premier League and he has a decent return too with 7 goals and 2 assists in 25 Premier League games this season. The Mali star can play as a deep midfielder or even as a slightly advanced one, thus he could be the player to take over from Mousa Dembele as the Belgian has struggled with injuries in the last season or two.

There is no doubt that Doucoure would be a handy player to have and with him already being accustomed to the Premier League, he should hit the ground running for whichever club he does sign for.

The 25-year-old can become one of the most dominant forces in the Premier League under the right guidance and if Pochettino can move early and sign him, that would be a great piece of business for us.

“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.

The planning for the stadium seems way off at the moment but hopefully, the team can produce a string of wins and take our minds off this delayed timeline.
