I'm not so sure about this. Walker can be a nightmare defender and a hot head who will get found out in the Champions League. My guess is they sell Walker to better fund their central defense and start Trippier with DY as a low cost back up.


What's so bad with Yedlin being sold to Sunderland? He's clearly won favor with Big Sam during the loan, and since January they look like they (finally) have a base to build from. May wind up fighting for more of a mid-table position next year if this years second half results carry over. A big part of their 2nd half success has been the defense and DY has played an integral part of that.

Yes, he wouldn't be in the Champions League, but if he went back to Spurs he'd only get cursory looks at the field (if they keep their current setup). I think it'd be better for his development to get a full year of starting for a team fighting for mid-table than fighting for #2 in the pecking order at RB at Spurs.

Good point, however, we will have endure another full season of Sunderland

This should be the summer to decide for Spurs. In all reality Yedlin's value while playing at Sunderland wont be any higher then it is right now. Right now hes a 22yr old who battled through a relegation fight and survived, and really exceeded expectations. If hes loaned to Sunderland next year how can he do any better? His metrics were already solid. If Sunderland is 13th-15th place that doesnt increase his stock. He'd be a 23 yr solid lower mid table player.

Now if he goes back to Spurs and plays, even part time, then he could be a 23yr old who was successful for a top 2-4 EPL team (best case scenario). I feel like Spurs have to know this and will either integrate him into their lineup or sell him. Another loan deal doesnt make a lot of sense monetarily

I also didnt realize Cropper is a FA this summer. He needs to make a good decision as Horvath has clearly passed him by. He needs to catch up to Yarborough and Bingham first. I think he should stay in Europe if he can find a good situation (mainly since every other goalie may be in MLS besides Horvath he'll get chacnes for Euro only camps)

all it took was one exposure to play hold up forward mentality... and we lost that beast of a man who had semblance of willingness to play other forwards and midfielders in...

IMO Steffen has passed him as well. Forget Europe, he just needs to find himself a good situation that involves playing time and let the rest sort itself out.

I am not sure if Big Sam really rates him or if he was the only alternative to Billy Jones. Billy Jones was god awful and certainly Yedlin has played better than him. I suspect that Sunderland will bring in another RB and Yedlin will have to fight for the starting position. Yedlin has defiantly improved this year and I would live to see him get a full year as a starter with Big Sam's tutelage.

Not so sure about that. Steffen didn't get a single game. Even after they clinched promotion. At least cropper got a handful of starts.

Can't believe it. Metz lost and then Le Havre scored 5 fucking goals to level on goal differential, but they lost because Metz had scored two more all season. Fuck. Just one more goal for Le Havre all season and we would have an American coach in a top five league. Huge disappointment. Really hope he can get them promoted next year.

I am not basing my opinion on the number of starts as that has more to do with the quality of keepers on a teams books and injuries a team has than overall quality. My opinion is judged from the matches I have seen and I think Steffen has superior talent.

I also think steffen is a better keeper than cropper right now. However if Guzan follows Howard to mls the only American keepers in Europe are those three. If cropper is starting in championship or an equivalent league and steffen is playing in reserves I would bet Juergen brigs in cropper. Add in the fact that he's already called in cropper a few times and I think it's obvious Juergen rates him.
