Berahino not for Spurs

I read stories that Tottenham have made Saido Berahino the top striker target and are desperate to get him in January which is complete nonsense. Sounds like a made up reporter story to sell papers.

Saido Berahino
West Bromwich Albion
Saido Berahino

Born/Age: 04.08.1993 (21)
Nationality England  Burundi
Current club: West Bromwich Albion
Contract until: 30.06.2017
Position: Centre Forward
Market value: 4,40 Mill. £

The 5 minute wonder is vastly overpriced at £25 million for what he has achieved in the game, virtually nothing. Quite why those sort of figures are being bandies about when previous figures of £15 million were considered way too much for the youngster is a mystery.

The game is littered with players who have done it for a bit until the league figures out how to play against them and then the goals dry up so to spend big on an unproven kid is taking an unnecessary gamble. The odds are not in Tottenham's favour so it is far more likely that a new striker will come from somewhere else.

WBA may find it difficult to turn down £25 million but nobody in their right mind is going to offer it so the issue doesn't arise. He is in the same England Under 21 squad as Harry Kane and nobody would offer £25 million for Harry Kane at the moment, yet he has scored more goals this season.

Saido Berahino (WBA) has played 20 games and scored 8 goals (1 assist), a goal every 184 minutes.
Harry Kane (Spurs) has played 23 games and scored 14 goals (1 assist), a goal every 104 minutes.

It was only the end of November that the Daily Mirror wrote an article saying Berahino was on the fast track to oblivion because of his attitude. The correct mentality is essential for anyone we wish to sign at Tottenham, they must have a continual improvement approach to their game.

Last season he was witnessed inhaling nitrous oxide and this season he has been arrested on a drink driving charge when stopped doing 110mph (177 km hour). As a professional footballer he shouldn't be drinking at all, his body is his life in football and he should be taking the optimum care of it. If he doesn't then it can't perform at it's optimum. We are in a world of science, diets and nutrition, booze is no longer a part of that.

Harry Kane not only scored goals but he gives 100%, he has the right mentality, that he wants to improve and that he must take his chance when he gets it, something he has done this season. There are plenty of fish in the sea, Tottenham don't need more players with the wrong attitude, as Berahino appears to have.

Spurs, the richest club in the world in 2 years

Spurs, the richest club in the world in 2 years A couple of things to chat about today. Firstly, the Premier League still have not said whether the people who made the decision to help Arsenal out by cancelling a game when they only had 1 Covid case, had Arsenal associations. They refused to answer that in their first reply to my complaint, that took two emails to get a response, despite asking for confirmation of receipt. I sent off a third email again asking the names of the people who made the decision and whether they had Arsenal connections. No reply received to date. Then of course we had the Chelsea 'gas' tweet during our game with them. This is totally unacceptable. You can't ask us to stop using the Yid word if you allow a club, not a fan, an official Chelsea club social media account,  How can you tell fans not to make gas references (which are reminders of the Jews being exterminated at death camps like Auschwitz) if you allow a club to do so without taking any d

Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 24

Good morning and it's another spiffing day to be a proper positive Spurs fan during this exciting period of our carefully and meticulously planned evolution under Daniel Levy and ENIC. To further your excitement I have the Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 24 piece for you. I know, you can hardly contain yourself can you. The eternal question, will he get straight into the news or will be keep us waiting again with some brilliant in sight into life at and around Tottenham. I'm undecided on that one folks, as of yet there is no Spurs Chat piece here, but who knows something might occur and I'll come back to fill in the blank, take you off the main transfer route into a local route (railway terms). If you have topics you'd like me to talk about please leave them in the comments. They all go for moderation so I do read them all and post all the sensible ones, leaving out the odd abusive one from some Levy hating doss-house in Scotland. In the meantime I said I read all

Tottenham Transfer Talk and Young Serie A Players Spurs are monitoring

Tottenham Transfer Talk and Young Serie A players Spurs are monitoring Happy New Year to one and all. Welcome to Tottenham Transfer Talk once again where today I'll bring a quick round up and list some youngsters you may not have heard we are tracking. Fabio Paratici will be heading to Italy, he is always popping back and forth, to conduct negotiations with a variety of Italian-based players. There are stories starting to circulate in Italy that if Juventus don't pick up form quickly that  22-year old (23 next August) Dutch international centre-back Matthijs De Ligt will start to look elsewhere. I am not sure how accurate they estimation that Antonio Conte wants to pay the whole £126.37m (€150m - US$169.79m - AUS$234.58m) release clause to get his signature. Readers all know  Dušan Vlahović has told us he will sign for Spurs in the summer because he wants to work with Antonio Conte but we will pursue an outside chance of signing him in January, highly likely it will be the su
