    Welcome N'Jie! Looking forward to seeing how his pace will open up things for our attack, especially for Chadli, Kane and Lamela.

    "I do not know why the president Aulas said those things. I was never scared that my transfer to Tottenham would not be confirmed. I never spoke to Arsenal representatives on the phone, they simply contacted my agent. My choice was made, I was determined to join Tottenham."

    From a French interview with him in L'Equipe translated to English here;

    With real pace options in the attacking 3rd, the ability of teams doing what Stoke did to us yesterday, i.e. pushing so many players back and pushing so high up the pitch to compress us in our own half without fear of the ball over the top or out wide to pace, should be nullified and actually turned to our advantage.

    Don't expect too much. Very mixed ratings in France

    Indeed, that interview with a lifelong Lyon fan* said he is very very raw, just learning his trade, will take a long time to settle, could come good as he is a good player but is not the finished article by a long shot.

    *Can't remember if it was on teletext or here.

    I really hope we give this guy a chance to settle into a different country, a much more competitive Lge before we start slagging him off.

    This forum is pretty good evidence that a small but very shouty element of our fan base won't.

    You are right I should know better then to ask for patience from some fans, i despair some time at the way fans have to abuse players ( sometimes when they have not even seen the games)

    That's the trouble with having millions of fans, there is always going to be a vocal minority shouting away on both extremes of any debate.

    You could probably find some shouty ignoramus claiming we should play Kane at right back if you look hard enough.

    I should add that yesterday I went to Hurley Regatta near Henley. There was a strange mix of very wealthy and quite poor people. I saw 3 kids and 1 adult in football tops. 3 Spurs and 1 Barcelona. And today I had the extreme fortune to be at Swindon Outlet Centre and saw a man in a Spurs top. But I am yet to see any other team's shirt this weekend. Sadly I feel a twinge of embarrassment seeing a grown adult in a replica shirt, rather than pride. But it makes a change from seeing Ar.senil shirts and Cheats shirts

    For those who watch French football (or know otherwise), how would you compare N'Jie to Antony Martial?

    I have a friend that is a Monaco fan. Lives in France. He said that our new guy had 6 good months at Lyon. He said it would have been better for him to stay one more year and then go to Tottenham. He is still learning his trade. Don't expect too much too soon.

    Intersting. What does your friend say about Martial as a Monaco fan out of interest, in comparison to N'Jie?

    Says Martial has a different style to Njie.

    Martial - Henry ( all rounder)
    Njie - Townsend ( commits players and runs a lot)

    Martial was only good for the last 6 months. He has been injured to.

    fudge me - so we missed "The Next Henry" and instead bought "The Next Townsend"??
    Does you and your friend speak fluent French? Maybe something was lost in translation...
