I tend to write each year about the 25-man squad and the implications of the homegrown players rule. This year I'm writing about it a little earlier than usual because it will impact on Spurs' transfer strategy. The reason being that Spurs have sleepwalked into a potential issue with homegrown player numbers which could impact on how many signings José Mourinho can make and/or the size of our squad for next season.

Football's intangibles will be forever debated because it's almost impossible to come to a resolution or sometimes even a compromise when the arguments are so antithetical. 'Desire' is definitely one such intangible in this category.
Over the past month I have recorded two podcasts with Alex Benham. He is brilliant. Alex is a listener of The Extra Inch and he got in touch with me having heard Nathan A Clark exclaim that the idea of restarting the Premier League was 'fucking absurd'. I thought it would be really useful to invite Alex to converse with me in blog form about Covid-19 and, in particular, the Premier League's response to it and their intentions going forward.

I've called this 'How I Feel' because, for me, football and the conversations around it impact on my feelings. What a snowflake. When Spurs were playing well and it felt like the club and its fan-base were together, I felt great! We all did. Now things are not going well and divisions have set in, I feel sad about it. I feel helpless, powerless, I'm not enjoying the football, I feel like part of my weekly or bi-weekly escapism has become a chore.
