Of course a bit like Wenger favoured French or French African's it's a market their more comfortable in same for most of us probably.
I think we will get him for €45 to 50 millions which is not a bad deal at all.There's a difference between spending big and spending smart.
Just spending big for the sake of it is not smart.
Lo Celso is good but he does not require a bigger fee than we just paid for Tanguy.
If we can get him down to that it would be great. Ideal price for what he has produced.I think we will get him for €45 to 50 millions which is not a bad deal at all.
I probably won't be very popular but sometimes I wish this spurs team had a little bit of the dark arts in them sometimes.With the difference that they are EU nationals, bought at an age where they're often ending up as 'trained by the club'.
But yeah, same goes for a lot of managers I suppose. Perhaps it's just me not liking south americans that much. Foul play, cheating, gamesmanship is a lot more acceptable down there.
I used to think all south americans were capable footballers until we signed Gilberto
We have a few who can do it. Lamela, Dele and Rose in particular. Sissoko has shithoused it from time to time (standing right in front of the Wolves throw in taker comes to mind).I probably won't be very popular but sometimes I wish this spurs team had a little bit of the dark arts in them sometimes.
Get the impression that Betis are asking for dickhead money on this one. We should wait and drive the price down.

Going by the rumors he def wants to come here and Betis are looking to make as much profit on him as they can.The problem with that price is that it won’t net Betis *that* much profit. If they feel this is their chance to cash in, they will resist that sort of fee as much as possible.
Honestly think it will come down to how much Lo Celso wants the move. He obviously favours us, but he might be happy to carry on plying his trade at Betis.
Has anyone watched all the Argentina’s copa games?
How good is Lo Celso? Is he worth what Betis are quoting for?
