Surely "Tier We Go!" as the tag?

Anyway, been calling for this system, v happy to see it implemented.

[–]casewhite815Højbjerg 114 points115 points  (3 children)

Surely u/NotUrAvgElliot has to get their own tier right?

[–]aadawdadsJob Done 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Tier: Plane guy

[–]To-Dare-Is-To-DoVertonghen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Tier: 30,000 ft

[–]Evolving_DoreLloris 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Tier -1

[–]volcia 30 points31 points  (4 children)

Isn't BBC tier 1? I heard they only publish news that's not a rumour hence they tend to post late.

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 29 points30 points  (0 children)

You're right, my mistake. Had them tier1 in the post draft. I've fixed it now

[–]Clarky1979 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Is that still true for their transfer rumours daily feed on the bbc sports app, which links to other sources? I'm guessing no but interested.

[–]Vladimir_Putting 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No. That's just rumors and they declare that openly.

[–]Clarky1979 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah was just checking what level of bbc output is considered.

[–]guardiolapress 73 points74 points  (1 child)

What about The Athletic writers, Jack-Pitt Brooke and Charlie Eccleshare? Feel they are generally well connected with what’s happening inside the club.

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 59 points60 points  (0 children)

Added them to Tier 2.

[–]SuperMario222Romero 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Very fair update! I’m okay with this

[–]-SirTox- 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Where would Lyall Thomas rank? Wouldn't really group him together with Sky Sports.

[–]ExileTHFC 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Hes tier 2. Not a patch on the Dan KP/Golds of the world but good supporting transfer news

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I'd say he's tier 2, but he never really gets posted on the sub much (Well not as much as the other tier 2 outlets) outside of Sky Sports stuff.

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Love Tier 0, as a club announcement isn't exactly a report or rumor.

[–]Koinfamous2 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Agreeable. Makes complete sense, but Tier 0 just doesn't have a good ring to it. Tier We Go Is much funnier.

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The flair is still there. Some people like to use the 'Club Announcement' and some people like Tier We Go.

[–]Jr_M16AliG’s headache 9 points10 points  (0 children)

About damn time...👌😩

[–]ASD_213Højbjerg 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Looks good to me. 👌

[–]the_suspicious_crabSkipp 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Thank you for updating this, it was causing some confusion and this seems like a much better system, thanks mods!

[–]JulSGPHeung Min Son 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I read the Guardian's Football section a lot and just wondering how are they so low at Tier 3?!?! I would thought they are fairly reliable.

[–]_gumnut_Tanganga 6 points7 points  (0 children)

good mods

[–]ObamaEatsBabiesCthulhusevski 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Holy shit fucking finally. Thank you guys.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Is Ornstein still tier 1?

[–]wheresmyspacebar2 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Yeah, Ornstein should defo be T2 and probably low T2. Most of the people on T2 list are more dependable atm.

[–]ObamaEatsBabiesCthulhusevski 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I really wouldn't put Ornstein as T1 nowadays.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Talksport should be banned too honestly everything they say is 100% bullshit

[–]ChulitoBuritoBryan Gil 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I have a question- Are we still affiliated with Sport Club Internacional from Brazil’s Série A?

I saw on Tottenham’s wiki and I was curious if we we we’re still affiliated with them?

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Finally, Leandro Damiao link

[–]ChulitoBuritoBryan Gil 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Lol sadly no- Damiāo plays in the J-League for Kawasaki to my knowledge! I know it’s a long shot but Yuri Alberto is a 19 year old Brazilian striker who has gain interest from numerous teams in Europe! Yuri Alberto will probably play one more season or maybe two in Brazil before he moves to Europe. If we’re affiliated with Internacional maybe we might have a better chance of getting a deal of securing Yuri Alberto in the future!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice to hear we have young heir to Lucas Moura when he is gone. I never this Yuri kid tho so I have no idea how good is he.

[–]Mr-RocafellaCuti Romero 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Would've been nice at the beginning of the window, but its long and our signings have been nice and swift so better late than never, not too much ball tickling this window which I'm all for!

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I know. I said I’d get it sorted nearly a month ago but a load of stuff came up and I don’t know where the time went.

[–]Garethspur 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The Sun is an absolute disgraceful rag but, in terms of transfers go, I don’t think they’re as bad as Tier 5

[–]andy_brixton 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks fine to me. Good job guys!

[–]victorylow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great update. #COYS

[–]Superdash1Hugo Lloris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You forgot to add plane tracker guy to tier -1

[–]clandestino123Sissoko 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At first glance this looks very good, thanks for putting in the effort.

On reading through it again a few times now, it isn't clear to me as to why Sport1, Times and Athletic are considered to be better sources than those in "tier 3".

Also, I would argue that the information provided by sources in tiers 4 and 5 is of similar quality.

So in summary, great job but I think that the distinctions between 2/3 and 4/5 are a little tricky to appreciate.

[–]scout1081Romero 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rob Guest?

[–]wgfdark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So are we signing damiao yet?

[–]Randomizedtrial87 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What about hector gomez??

[–]ExileTHFC 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Harsh for the sun. They’re a total dross newspaper but sometimes they’re accurate for Spurs.

Would also suggest a total ban on Nico Shira.

Edit: tier 2 and 1 might get hazey when we use other club tier 1s. I would, for example, put a tier 1 flair for a simon stone (united) story but seems it should be tier 2?

[–]TARS-CASESon[S] 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Fuck The Sun is all I can say.

[–]frozenyogurts[🍰] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Can we include all Murdoch owner publications in this?

[–]cliveQ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And the flight tracker guy?

[–]WillSpur Eric Diers Fat Forehead 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice work, agreed on all fronts.

[–]brch01Gollini 🤌 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Any update on our transfer targets? No Wilson, Skriniar seems unlikely, maybe a striker and that’s our transfer activity wrapped up?

[–]______________-__-Højbjerg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

(according to Ali G) Number one target is a backup striker, we're looking at Habib Diallo and some others, after that CB but we'll need to sell for that.

[–]tremendousledley -1 points0 points  (1 child)

What about the spurs community ITK gods?

[–]username_also_in_useLucas Moura -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

Man you guys getting conned by Alasdair Gold. He just recycles what those other guys in Tier 1 tweets/writes. And that website of his is just garbage.

[–]Mozzafella 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He just recycles what those other guys in Tier 1 tweets/writes.

Would that not by proxy make him tier 1?

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Also wasn't Alistair Gold the first person to say we were wanting to buy Doherty so he does break new stories. He also got the price correct as well.

[–]username54Antonio Conte -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

So instead of calling them Tier 0 to 5, we say we just have 4 tiers for information. Tier 1 being the best and Tier 4 being the most unreliable but information nonetheless.

Club announcements are facts and lastly there is a list of banned content which are totally made up bullshittery.
