    Im talking about heat as in from the press, not on the pitch.
    Let's say we sign ndombele, first question in press conference is going to be about how he is our first signing in however long it is.
    In fact everything said or written about him will be prefaced with 'spurs first signing in 18 months' , heaping the pressure on.
    Whereas if its Clark who is less likely to play every game it helps settle the hype down imo.

    Sorry, I assumed you meant from the fandom.

    Though to be honest I still think the same applies (what Ive posted) from the press perspective too.

    Yes, the "first signing in 18 months" question will be nullified, but he will still be our record buy (by a distance), biggest/highest profile signing in years, and just how KEY he will be to the team wont be lost on anyone.

    Poor fudger will be coming in with HUGE expectation from all sides.

    Clarke? Simply not comparable, still a B tier signing, first in 18 months or not...

    I've wanted us to buy him since I found out we were going to buy him.

    Right, I remember seeing Lennon play in pre-season friendly at Stevenage when we signed him and Routledge, he was much better than the experienced Routledge in that game and I thought we'd signed a little diamond.

    Hopefully we can get Bowen as well if this one is complete.

    Now there's another example of the exact type of signing we should be pursuing.

    Who's Bowen, by the way?

    He's amazing. If we don't sign him it might not be a possible mistake.

    Bit left field but has he got any previous as a defender? Took one look at YouTube and looks like he’s predominantly a right footer playing right side. I wonder if the club has designs on developing him into a RWB or even attacking FB.

    I could be way off as I’m not overly familiar with him.

    Yes that’s definitely a bit left field mate. His talents are most definitely in attacking areas. Then again, he’s young and we have a magician in charge so who knows what he will get coached into:D....

    We do need a backup goalie. Ederson, after all, was a LB before converting to goalie. Wait, you don't suppose...

    All the press has that inevitability about it now, it certainly looks like its happening.

    Most recent reports state an 8.5m fee with add ons - pretty bloody sensible if you ask me!
