Well folks, the Premier League announced on Monday that clubs will return to training which means we’re ever so slightly closer to Spurs coming back into our lives!
I’m so Spurs-deprived, even a few training goals would wet my whistle at this stage.
Let’s dive straight in shall we?
ONE OF OUR OWN
If we weren’t already beaming with pride at the marvel of Harry Kane, we certainly were this week.
The would-be captain of Spurs amazed us all on Friday as he was confirmed as the new lead sponsor of Leyton Orient, with the front-of-shirt sponsorship kindly donated to three amazing charities.
It continues to astonish me that there’s people out there that put him down. He is an absolute model professional and credit to not only his club, but his country also. Maybe the negativity is an anti-England star thing? Just ask Wayne Rooney and Alan Shearer.
Supporting the club that gave him his first professional start, and giving back to the area he grew up in is beyond impressive. Well done, H.
RICH LIST LEVY
You may have seen this week that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy was named on The Sunday Times Rich List for the first time, reportedly worth £329million.
He was announced as the highest-paid Premier League executive last year, earning a salary of £4million and a bonus of £3million having ‘successfully’ overseen our new stadium construction.
It’s left somewhat a bitter taste in my mouth in all honesty, particularly after the events at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with the prospective furloughing of Spurs staff.
But, there’s little we can do, he is an immovable force.
A story that has been gathering a lot of pace in recent weeks is that of a potential move for Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser, who is available on a free this summer.
The Scotsman becomes a free agent on June 30th and despite being linked with a whole host of clubs, it seems he is most keen on joining the Jose Mourinho fun-bus at Spurs.
Despite having a quiet season on the South coast, Fraser enjoyed a prolific 18/19 campaign, with a decent 14 assists for the Cherries.
He may already be 26-years-old (an age demographic Spurs normally opt against), but in this market – and with Mourinho likely resigned to only free transfers this summer – it could be a good option.
A new era could be on the horizon in N17 as it was announced this week that Lille sporting director Luis Campos has asked the French club to leave at the end of the season.
Although on the face of it this may not be anything to do with Tottenham, the Portuguese is a close friend of Jose Mourinho and also worked with assistant manager Joao Sacramento last season at Lille.
Campos would bring with him a wealth of experience, having been the man to discover the likes of Bernardo Silva, Kylian Mbappe and loads more in the past.
It was hinted back in November that Campos was going to join Mourinho at Spurs, but mid-season that was always going to be a tough ask. Will it happen? We shall see.
With the news that the boys are coming back to training, we’re almost back to some sort of footballing normality folks. We’re so close I can almost smell it.
Stick together, stay inside and we can come out of this sooner rather than later.
Stay safe and up the Spurs.
