    Read between the lines. It's in there. Or just wait for the Daily Mail to find it.

    He talks about the bad start to the season. He didn't exactly help did he!

    The 'rumour' was, during the start of the season Luka had a letter of apology penned for him to be released. Never saw the light of day. Of course, pinch of salt and all that.

    not good enough.

    He should be put into a glass cabinet in the spurs shop and be forced to apologise and list his reasons for why he thinks he should be allowed to stay at a top 3 club!

    Fact is, players these days, he's loving it at the mo but if it went belly up he'd be the first to want to leave in the summer.

    In fairness to the guy, he has played so well since then. He could easily have sulked and disrupted the team.
    To me that is better than an apology which would have been empty anyway. Obviously, everyone could see why he would want to go there and get 2 or 3 times his wages + Champions league. At that time you would have imagined the top 4 to be Utd, City, Chelsea and Arsenal but hopefully that is set to change now and maybe that could sway him to stay here for 1 more year.

    Isn't he the same as most of us? We all want to be somewhere where we can earn more, achieve more and have a better way of life. At the start if the season Modric had reason to believe that Cheksea would again finish above us and would be the ones challenging for the title, not us. Modric would have wanted to play CL regularly, he deserves to, and he knew Chelsea were a CL regular who appeared almost certain to qualify this year.

    Since then, however, we have achieved a lot more than even the boldest optimises could have seen us achieving. So now has stated that he is enjoying his time here as he likely realises that perhaps the pitch isn't greener elsewhere. We only need him to now accept the new contract and prove to us that his future is here before we will totally forgive him.

    We want players to love the side as much as we, the supporters, do. Truth is that very few of them will. We will have players join who didn't have feeling for their old team. Likewise we will have players offered exciting deals elsewhere and, hard as it is to accept, they may well be tempted to move. If they do, we move on as fans who will always support the side and in the future we will have another player who we cheer for as loudly as we did the one that departed; it's football, a job for the players, a lifetime for us fans.

    Just as long as we never get to the point where we're saying "fudge 'player x', we've got Pavlyuchenko!" all will be good in the Spurs world.

    If Modric wants to leave now for Chelsea, then he honestly can't pretend it's for glory and trophies. If we finish in the top 4 then surely we'll have enough money to start paying out 100k pw wages?

    Why would we?

    We need a bigger stadium or a sheikh to pay those OBSCENE wages and I for one don't want to pay them.

    It's fudging vile and I dont want any chat about pragmatism.

    the sooner we have a 50% salary cap or lower the better

    I dont think that would be the case. Our wages im sure is based on recurring income and not one off income. You cant give someone a 5 yr 100k a week contract based on the CL income for that specific year. As the consequences are that in year two, when youre not in CL, you will be still paying 100k out of income you dont have.

    The only recurring income stream is really matchday attendance along with maybe merchandising etc
