Presume it's been said by the way but what a piece of business by spurs swapping Walker for Aurier from PSG.

Is Aurier that good?

From what i've seen from him it looks a sensible move but not an improvement imo. Walkers pace and stamina is among the best in the game which goes some way to shield his limitations.

Aurier is a worse player AND comes with a huge deal more baggage.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

Think it's a case of not as good rather than worse if that makes sense? Seen a fair bit of him for Ivory Coast - looks good but nothing amazing. And i've heard about some of his views and antics.

Ah knew nothing of his private life. Only seen him for PSG and whenever I've seen him he's done everything Walker does equally as well. Terrible [emoji38]
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

“We have a manager now whose eye for detail is incredible. The injury record since he’s been here has been phenomenal and that’s down to his meticulous planning, when to use or rest players. At the same time, he has a depth of feeling. It means a lot. Some people have worked here who wouldn’t have a clue about tradition, about Geordie people.”

The problem for the Aurier deal is more about Trippier.  Too good to be benched, and Aurier isn't that much an upgrade over Trippier.  However if Spurs choose to start Trippier, then why spend that much on a back up RB?  They should buy someone to replace Sissoko.

I'm sure PSG generate 400m a year in croissant, liquid natural gas and cigarette sales at the PdP. I'd be confident as well.

Well there's the argument that in selling Walker and getting in Aurier we've made money without getting all that much worse at RB, but let's leave that aside for now.

Why spend that much on a back-up RB? Because full-backs are crucial to the way we play and because we are in four serious competitions. And because the money is there. Our reserve LB played more than half last season after Rose got injured and may end up playing more than half this season as well. At this level, if you don't have strong competition in every position then you are simply not going to be good enough.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Thought the talk was that Trippier and Walker-Peters would battle for that spot if you let Walker go?

Aurier seemed an odd transfer to me as well tbh, if he ends up limiting the chances of those 2 as they're both really promising.

Same reason City just spent the GDP of a small island on fullbacks.

City also literally needed fullbacks, because they had none. :lol: Highly questionable money spent aside.

They'd only spent £7m on full-backs since 2011 when they bought Clichy up until their splurge this summer tbf, so £130m or whatever for an elite club on full-backs in 6 years isn't 'that' bad.

I'm tempted to go work out what our net spend on full-backs is over the same period :lol:.
