Sol Campbell to return and save us, eh? A tale too tall and not even a made up name signed after it. What an insult. Presumably you monkeys can read, so read on...
Harry challenges you, in fact, double dares you to reveal your sources. Or just admit you have no grasp of this club and could very well just be writing about baked beans.
Your steaming pile of poo poo just won't do. We can cope the usual Defoe plus 'some Lego, £5 million and an Action Man Helicopter Command Centre (with batteries and original box) to Blackburn' transfer window rubbish, but you lot need a reminder.
I appreciate the dilemma of your middle class minesweepers... the minor Royals are generating little of interest you can publish and the breathtaking Nigella steadfastly refuses to have an affair, but fer chrissakes... get a grip.
"My heart and soul is here and I want to play for Spurs. I am going nowhere."
August 4, 2000.
"I can assure everyone that I won't be signing for another club while I am still a Spurs player. I want to win the Premiership and I want success in Europe but, most of all, I want to believe I can achieve that here."
December 3, 2000.
"Being a Spurs fan as a boy and a player for so many years, it would be hard for me to sign for Arsenal. I don't think the fans here would ever forgive me."

"I want to play for Tottenham, that's it really. I am going nowhere - *January 1, 2001.*
I'm happy here and willing to do business now. I'm not selfish, I'm looking at the current situation and want the club to do well."

"It's the ambition of Spurs and where we are going that concerns me. I have the right to keep my options open. Nobody can blame me for wanting success and above all wanting it at Tottenham. But talk is cheap. "

"As long as the club is healthy and things are in place, then myself and other players will want to join Tottenham or continue with them. I want to stay at Tottenham."

"There is still a lot of sorting out to be done but I am sure it will be resolved."
April 1, 2001.
"I will leave it as late as possible - but I am happy at the moment and that is the main thing."
April 13, 2001.
"Going abroad is not in my mind. the ball is in Spurs' court now. I am in no hurry because I want to look at the whole picture. We will just have to wait and see what happens in the next two or three weeks."
May 21, 2001.
