'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Spurs 5m pounds shy of Boa Morte.

According to Chris Colman, Tottenham attempted to sign Boa Morte at the end of the summer transfer window.

'Boa was about 5million away from joining Tottenham in the summer. What they offered was nowhere near what we valued him at. We had no chance of replacing him for the fee they offered and the longer all the talk went on the price went up. Boa is linked to a move away from the club every time there is a transfer window. ' Coleman said.

The Tottenham way seems to be, go around the clubs offering 'silly money' until they find a club desperate enough to sell their best players for peanuts. They then complain when the media link them to every other player and his dog!

What is meant to have been said there. is that "Tottenham inquired about the player, and suggested what they value the player as, knowing that if they let the selling team name their price these days, clubs like spurs, chelski, and man utd get taken for a ride." ..... in reality spurs prove the point with the sale of carrick being overpriced. but if you can do it, then do it. if your smart enough to not let yourself get taken for a ride, like spurs, then even better

PS. Boa Morte is over rated, it just because he is fulhams best player, doesnt actually make him a great player. just the best of a bad bunch

I agree with this article the supposed bigger clubs think that they can sell their mediocre players for silly high prices yet when trying to buy class they expect to get them for beer money.

I suppose you can't blame Tottenham wanting to get a good deal or no deal but they should'nt complain when the media have a pop at them for failing to buy this player and failing to sign that player etc.

Its called "testng the market". Its the right way to do business, start low and see where you go. Nothing wrong with that...
its quiet at the lib
Chris Coleman is a *****, simply put. He makes many comments like this. Business is business and football is business these days. Grow up Coleman or put up.

and let's not forget we got a henria and lent fulham a player we need now, coleman should be laughing all the way to the bank on this one...

Its odd that you call Colman a ***** but most of the other managers/chairmen that deal with Spurs say the same as Colman. QUOTE........ Its called "testng the market". Its the right way to do business, start low and see where you go. Nothing wrong with that... its quiet at the lib. Then stop whinging at the media for linking Spurs with any Carlos Kickabout!!...lol.
Cravens
colmans a t**t he's obviously got the needle that we picked up malbranque(arguably your best ex player)for **** all at least when the big fella comes on here he can see that lovely photo at the top of the page could you at least find one of him in right shirt old chrissy might still try to pick him
robsta
I don't think that he has the needle, as Malbranque did not want to stay what was the point in keeping him, personally I think you have done well to get Malbranque as I am not fickle like 'he hem' some premiership supporters that post on vital sites, he will be an asset to you and I am sad to see him go, a bit like you guys having to put up with Carrick not wanting to stay at Spurs and wanting to go to a bigger club, we had the same thing with Malbranque wanting to go to a bigger club, I can take it as I am a realist....shame about you guys really.....lol.
Cravens
Well said Cravens. Boa Morte has been one of the Premiership's best players. And they are worth good money!
