Spurs fans debate potential Victor Moses signing, largely disapprove

Spurs Warmup 2010

The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have been discussing the Chelsea-owned winger.

According to the Daily Mirror, Chelsea-owned winger Victor Moses is a target for Tottenham.

It remains to be seen whether this proves a solid link where there has been actual interest or if this is simply a one-off report used to generate intrigue where there isn't any to be had.

The overall response, nevertheless, has been one of great disappointment from those who frequent White Hart Lane.

Moses just wouldn't be a top signing for Tottenham - and we argued that in a HITC Sport article on Saturday night.

In response, many Spurs fans agreed. Some see value in the Nigerian wide man but, after failing to break into the Chelsea team and also underwhelming at Liverpool, Moses doesn't impress the majority of the Tottenham faithful. 

Indeed, over a number of comments on several different HITC Sport pages, Spurs supporters have been debating a potential Moses signing and most have come to the same conclusion. He may be a good fit at Stoke City but that doesn't really concern a side with Champions League ambitions.

Here's what fans have been saying about the 24-year-old:


Dommo wrote: 'I agree signing Moses wouldn't strengthen our squad, we need a proven winger that will score 15 goals a season and provide assists to Kane'


Daniel J Permutt wrote: 'This would certainly be an awful signing. Over the last couple of seasons, the quality of incoming player transfers at Spurs has gotten progressively worse, and this deal would be the least ambitious of the lot. Luckily, it's the summer – a time when we're linked to everyone with even the slightest hint of a pulse – so we shouldn't take the link too seriously for now.'

G-$spur wrote: 'Well I don't think Moses is that bad of a player. Don't get me wrong, it is less ambitious to go for him as we are chasing champions league (given up on us qualifying for that anyway)...and the statement of intent should be signing players that give fans the sense of ambition.

'Yet...I still believe Moses is a good player. He is incredibly strong (when he chooses not to dive), he's quick, direct, skillful and causes full backs problems. Unfortunately for Moses, he's signed for Chelsea and had Mourinho as his gaffer...and Mourinho is not interested in him. Then, Moses has been signed by teams like Liverpool for loan spells and not been used.

'Stoke was a bit better for him, but when you don't get regular football...ya confidence will be low. Let us all not forget when he left Place for Wigan, played regularly...and was ripping the crap out of teams like Arsenal and Manchester United like it was a walk in the park. He needs mentoring to get back to his best....I think Poch can be the man that is Moses's best option!'


Marcus Higgins wrote: 'Unfortunately this would be a typical Levy signing, fool the fans into thinking we're getting Martial or Scheiderlein, then substitute Moses on the basis of that's all who was left available. #levy has previous form.' 


Dubai Spurs wrote: 'I don't understand this move at all. This is going to be another one we struggle to get off the books in a years time when he fails to do anything.'


Klarky wrote: 'Not sure about him, is he a top 4 player ? I think we need top 4 players. He was a good player a few seasons back, but he has disappeared of late and if he was good enough he wouldn't have gone off the radar. We need someone like Salah, Konaplayanka, someone with flair and proven ability in the last season or two. Moses seems like squad player. We need to lash out on a bit of proven class if we are to challenge better than 5th.'
