This is not a dig at Poch but Jose seem to have identified areas of the squad that need strengthening and is going out there and getting the best he can for the budget, and before people moan it’s levy’s fault last season with Poch we had a huge transfer kitty last season, I know it’s early days but I’m excited to see us next season with these solid premier league proven additions!

Well the last couple of pages have been very touching. 😭 Just had a cry wank.

On a serious note, we all know we will have future cunt offs. And when that time comes. I will look back at these pages, smile and be reminded that, ultimately, we all want the same thing... we are all a fundamental part of Tottenham Hotspur FC... and in our hearts we will celebrate or commiserate our successes and failures together... as family.

Come on you spurs.

Has a lot to say

I know he's got to say all that crap re. joining Spurs, but what a load of crap. No Matt, no you can't play in midfield, or in a back 4 or in a back 3. You are a wing back and Nuno made you. As for the rest of the comments, you're soon forgotten you wee snake

One of the best days of Matts career leaving us.

Bye then Matt.You have peaked and you´ll get destroyed if they gonna play you in a back four.

Grass was greaner after ten seasons.Looking forward to beating Spurs I am.

Matt Doherty sees his move to the Club as “a big step forward” after swapping old gold for new beginnings in north London.

“Particularly graceless interview, especially the big club bull.

Hope we get in ANM now and embarass the **** out of him.“

Yee...Doh!
Just doesn't shut up

Rubbish fee, rubbish interview, I’m well and truly ****ed off. I would wish Matt good luck after all the things he’s done at Wolves, but reading that interview and given the fee likely means he was being a **** about the opportunity to move, then good ****ing riddance.









 
Afternoon all - a London-based Wolves fan here who had this thread shown to me by a Spurs supporting mate.

The relationship between Nuno-era Wolves and Doherty was a very odd one. Our system was very rigidly adjusted to accommodate Doc's weaknesses.

(1) he can't defend: (a) we'd always have Neves and/or Dendoncker and/or Moutinho drop in behind him, (b) he'd always have the right-sided centre half behind him, and (c) we played lop-sided 3-4-3/3-5-2, meaning Jonny (our left wing back) would typically stay deeper; and

(2) he can't cross.

Instead he was very good at linking play in the final third with the wide forward and getting into good scoring positions in the box. This is basically the only thing he can do to a Premier League standard - and I've noticed that he appears to be most at home in your team when linking up with Bale in and around the 18 yard area.

The reason he scored well in fantasy football is because he did very little defending (mercifully - he was a liability at the back), but you can pick him in your FF team as a defender.

He was a terrible signing for you - but he would have been for any PL team that didn't want to adapt their entire system to accommodate his League 1 quality defending*. Letting him go hasn't worked out as well for the Wolves as we would have liked because it's taking Semedo much longer than we would have expected to get up to speed (although he's had to spend most of his Wolves career trying to get used to playing with Adama, which can't be easy for anyone).

However, taking Doc out of our team has given us the freedom to adapt our style - something the club wants to prioritise following two seasons of counter-attacking football. In the medium-to-long term, no longer being hamstrung by carrying a League 1 defender* will only serve us well in my view. Because of Semedo's shaky start, other Wolves fans disagree and are clamouring for Doc to return. I think this is short-termism.

It seems to me that it was very lazy scouting which caused you guys to go in for him. He's a FF points machine, but it shouldn't have taken much digging to work out why.

Best of luck in the Europa - I've a sneaky feeling you'll win it and secure CL football. That would be classic Jose.


---
*one of the most embarrassing defensive performances that I have ever seen in a Wolves shirt was Doc playing left back in the Championship. He tripped himself over three times in a row whilst flailing around trying to tackle a Leeds attacker who just strolled on past him, crossed it, and they scored. I've never fully forgiven him for that day.
