Here's the headline. If Dilan Markanday had two and a half years left on his contact, we would not be entertaining bids below eight figures. Instead, we have reportedly accepted a six figure bid.
Happy New Year to all; I hope you're well, had a healthy and happy holiday period, and I wish you all the best for the year ahead. It's good to be Spurs, again, folks!

I wrote in my last blog a month ago that it will likely to some time for Antonio Conte to implement his system, but that he could add some automations fairly quickly. It has, I confess, taken a little longer than I'd optimistically hoped for the attack to click. Look, we've had an international break, which deprived us of the majority of our first-teamers, and two matches a week, which means the players probably spend as much time in recovery as they do on the training pitch. But, against Brentford we perhaps saw the first automation come to fruition - an 'up, back, through' (with an added 'across').

I sort of don't know where to start this. I'm having a thousand thoughts at once and I'm struggling to structure them into some sort of coherence.

With huge thanks to Greg Jenner for sharing this interview with Jonathan Hirshler, CEO of Data Science company Signify, which he did for a BBC Radio 4 series that he was making. The series is called Past Forward, and in this he is played a piece of audio from the BBC archive and has to make a programme about it.

Greg was played newsreel from before the England v Argentina match in the World Cup in 1998, and so made the programme about the Beckham backlash and how it compares to modern online abuse.

The episode of Past Forward in question is available here:

This interview also covers 'The Y-Word' and Jonathan has some absolutely fascinating insights.
