Harry Winks: Spurs trophies 'round the corner' says England midfielder

Must be some size of corner they have been coming round since they last won a trophy in 2008 !

 

They picked up Arsenal's 4th place trophy last season. How could you overlook that?

A lot can still happen in next three weeks, but been surprised so far at lack of spending in the window, particularly from our 'rivals' at the top of the table. Given our transfer ban, you'd think the others would want to capitalise but seen very little to worry us so far. Perhaps the punishment won't hit us as hard after all.

Manchester United have dropped four places to sixth in Forbes Magazine's annual list of the world's most valuable sports teams.

NFL side the Dallas Cowboys, valued at $5bn (£4bn), remain top, with Major League Baseball's the New York Yankees second on the list at $4.6bn (£3.7bn).

Real Madrid are third, with fellow Spanish side Barcelona in fourth.

Manchester City (25), Chelsea (32), Arsenal (42), and Liverpool (45) are the other English clubs in the top 50.

The Dallas Cowboys have been number one for the past four years having usurped Real Madrid in 2016.

"The values of teams in major sports leagues are booming thanks to sky-high TV deals, both local and national," said Kurt Badenhausen, senior editor at Forbes Media.

"And with revenue growing faster than player salaries, franchises are more profitable than they have ever been."

NFL teams made up 26 - down from 29 a year ago - of the top 50 teams on the list.

The NBA had nine teams on the list, while there were eight from European football and seven from MLB.

Forbes' most valuable teams

1. Dallas Cowboys (NFL) $5bn (£4bn)

2. New York Yankees (MLB) $4.6bn

3. Real Madrid (Football) $4.24bn

4. Barcelona (Football) $4.02bn

5. New York Knicks (NBA) $4bn

6. Manchester United (football) $3.81bn

7. New England Patriots (NFL) $3.8bn

8. Los Angeles Lakers (NBA) $3.7bn

9. Golden State Warriors (NBA) $3.5bn

10. New York Giants (NFL) $3.3bn

10. Los Angeles Dodgers (MLB) $3.3bn

Selected others:

25. Manchester City (football) $2.69bn

32. Chelsea (football) $2.58bn

42. Arsenal (football) $2.27bn

45. Liverpool (football) $2.18bn

It’s an interesting one; you could argue there is very little Liverpool & City could do in the market, as they almost have perfect squads. Their signings have been mainly early to mid-20s with a long term plan in place, they can then replace ageing players when the need arises like Rodri for Fernandinho. 

With Utd Solskjaer has a long way to go to undo Mourinho’s short termism, but signings like James & Wan Bisakka are moves in the right direction. Spurs seem to be making up for a lost transfer window by spending big on Nndombele & also rumoured to be buying Lo Celso for £60m+. Arsenal are in a weird spot; Mintsalt seemed to be taking them in the right direction by making smart signing like Torreira, but was removed and they seem to making moves like drunken sailors. 

It is the middle teams that are making scary moves, and I won’t be surprised if the top 6 becomes a top 8 in a couple of years. Leicester, Wolves, Everton & West Ham are making decent moves in the market.
