    Good deal for us I think. Would have liked to see him succeed at Spurs but he's 23 and not played meaningful top flight football, so getting £5m, possibly rising to £8m, for him is a decent price. Nkoudou in comparison is two years younger, has played a full season for Marseille and a couple for Nantes before that, and only a few million more.

    Ah well. Thought he would be last seasons up-and-coming star like Kane the season before, we got an Alli instead.

    Have to trust the management thought, they see him in week-in week-out, we dont

    True. Alli did for his career what Lennon, Dawson and Walker did for Routledge, Davenport and Gunter.

    Reading people saying that he was on his way to Brighton but was held up in traffic on the M25. During that time, Norwich made their approach.

    Yesterday we sold Pritchard to Norwich for around £8m...

    I worked out that in his seven years at the club (since 09), he played 12 minutes of first team football, that includes cup competitions and the Europa League.

    5 vs Aston Villa (May 14)
    7 vs Everton (Aug 15)

    Considering players like Tom Carroll for example, who has played 50 times for Spurs, and Ryan Mason (71), I think that he wasn't given a fair chance.

    I watched him play several times for Swindon in League One, and Brentford in the Championship in 2014/2015 and he looked like he was to good for that, and he was just 21.

    He won Brentford's player of the year and appeared in the PFA Championship team of the year.

    He was also in Pochettino's plans last year before his injury, so I think it's strange how he hasn't played but he now isn't in his plans?

    What does everyone think?

    Brighton chief executive Paul Barber has revealed motorway delays scuppered the club's move for Tottenham's Alex Pritchard.

    Speaking to supporters at a fans forum, the Brighton chief said: "We don't usually share transfer info, but we will make an exception with this one. "We agreed terms with Spurs, and then agreed terms with the player and agent. Player was travelling to us. "There were delays on the M25, and it was during that delay another club jumped on the deal."These things happen in football, and we are not naive enough to think that doesn't happen."

    Real politik, methinks.

    Poch says you're not in his plans and you want to play, why delay?.

    The reality of living/travelling to Brighton came just at the right time for him, so maybe his luck has turned
