Danny Rose would be an outstanding signing, he'd be head and shoulders the best left back in the league. As has been said he's from Doncaster and wants to be close to home. The sums don't add up though, unless Spurs paid most of his wages. I can't see it unfortunately.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be buzzing if we signed him, he'd sort our left back spot out immediately, but I'm really not sure he'd fancy it, ignoring the wages.

He didn't come across great in the 10 mins he was in that documentary, but the whole thing was heavily edited to make Jose and Levy look good so who knows.

He'd be the best LB in the division though, I know that much. Can't see it, but can always hope.

footballinsider is usually on the money and there's no smoke without fire..

but with that said, i just don't see it happening.. unless they're willing to pay 90% of his wages or something

Or if he's willing to take a pay cut to be the first name on the team sheet, back in the North, and playing for a manager who'll put an arm around him and make him feel wanted?

Plus, he'd be competing against Marvin Johnson for a place in the starting XI each week, and all professional sportspeople love a challenge.

He said last year that he wouldn't leave Tottenham before his contract runs out.

I think part of that will be because of the wages, I'd be surprised to see him taking a pay cut, and wouldn't expect him to.

At the same time though, that was under a different Tottenham manager who he had a better relationship with.

If he's not included in the 25 man Spurs squad then with one year remaining on his contract his employment is constructively terminated. I know that it doesn't quite work that way in football but it is possible that he and his agent agree a termination package on his remaining 8 months (caveat being away from a Premiership competitor) which then allows Danny to look elsewhere and to lower expectations in terms of remuneration for a three year deal. 

Maybe just wishful thinking on my part but if he wants to get back up North then its as good a club as any to seek a Merson type fresh challenge at this stage of his career.

I could see him coming on loan until January where he will play every game with the incentive if it goes well he can then get bigger move in January!

I heard Roberto Carlos has a picture of Marvin Johnson as his screensaver

I might be in minority but I dont want Danny Rose. We have a young LWB in Hayden Coulson who has shown enough last season that i think he can be very good at this level.

Yes he 100% has areas of his game he needs to work on but it will be a huge shame if our management team cannot work on them weaknesses and harness that potential to the next level. 

My hope is in next few weeks he breaks in to team and stays there. He seems ideal as a LWB for me

Rose is a left back though, rather than a wing back. We don't have a competent left back which has been really constricting us to the largely ineffectual (or at least horrible to watch) formation we've been playing. This signing would allow us to be a better brand of football, more flexible with formations and he has a lot of quality. It makes a lot of sense to me.

    • The official FA guidelines are here... https://www.thefa.com/football-rules-governance/policies/player-registration/points-based-system It is the "GBE Mens Player Criteria Jan 2021" document. I used it to work out if Zinkernagel would it the 15 points required (when we were supposedly linked with him), my rough sums had him on 10 points. Not sure if Watford got his WP before this came into effect, or if they got an exemption or if I had completely miss calculated.  
    • Not just Roberts (x2) we have had Nmecha, Van le parra, Batth and Morrison all with very few appearances for us. I guess it will depend on whether the player is a youngster looking for experience, a lad looking to put himself in the shop window or someone they just want off the books.
    • That’s what I meant. It’s the same rules now for EU and non EU players. The rules for non EU players have been relaxed in line with the rules for EU players 
    • Redcar R I don't think it is down to the boots.  Browne stuck his leg well into the turf with an apparent intention of creating a "solid hip " to lever the player away.  We've all done it ! I was quite surprised that he got injured and tended to assume that it was because he'd used his inside leg to make it less obvious. I've seen a knee go back in again on its own but it is an odd and very upsetting sight to see a knee cap next to where is should be
