Winks, Mason, Carroll, Jenas, Bostock the list goes on.

Most players do not turn out like Kane he's a one in a million we must end this myth and instead invest, invest, invest!

Clearly you don't know the rules,

A maximum of 17 overseas trained players in the squad - the rest have to be home grown.

So you score zero out of ten for knowledge of how to build a squad

Notice how that's a burden and very rarely a positive?

The myth I'm talking about is the idea that our future rests in our academy system that is a falsehood.
 
The myth of the French footballer from Ligue 1

When will it end

Dalmat, Kaboul, Stambouli, Nkoudou, Capoue, Sissoko, Ndombele the list goes on

Can't all turn out to be as good as Ginola

Kaboul and Gallas were fine defenders and Sissoko has been very useful at times being able to fill multiple rolls and provide some much needed strength.

No its just you don't like being found out how ignorant you are about football

Yet every other team signs French players who turn out to be fucking great

Sounds like more of a Spurs problem honestly

No just someone who clearly knows more about football than you. Not difficult I know
Waiting for Winks the young English, prospect, whizkid, boy-wonder, up and coming, scarlet to come good.



Annnnny day now MOTD told me he's the next Beckham!
 
We need a good balance. Some Brits, some foreigners, a bit like how we were set up a few years ago with Walker, Rose, Dier, Dele, Kane and Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dembele, Wanyama, Son.

Them were the days
