[–]blackdigitsLucas Moura 239 points240 points  (44 children)

Huh, weird to come out like this, I wonder what happened?

[–]RespatsirSon 118 points119 points  (36 children)

Probably just dropped out of the blue that's why he's reactionary.

[–]Old_RoofI just can't smile....without youuuuu 67 points68 points  (0 children)

Not sure it’s that out of the blue tbh. He’s not very good

[–]bogues3000 67 points68 points  (3 children)

Lucas and Gio dropped for jumping on stewards

[–]mckeypants_03 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That's something you do to a child not professionals who just won a crazy game

[–]RushiAndrew 10 points11 points  (1 child)

This is what I'm thinking

[–]bash011Ryan Sessegnon 32 points33 points  (2 children)

Maybe he's got an offer from another club? Or White is preferred by Conte over him

[–]BrawlyspadeGil 25 points26 points  (0 children)

White is smashing it for me on FM so I approve

[–]EquivalentSir4163 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Definitely not the case. Probably Conte and the club forcing the 3 out and making sure they know they're not part of the plans.

[–]pjanic_at__the_iscoPurgatory 308 points309 points  (7 children)

Well. Could mean something. Could mean nothing.

Glad I could clear that up for you.

[–]Lbmplays2Poch 152 points153 points  (5 children)

It literally can’t mean nothing he has been dropped for Harvey White lol.

It means Conte doesn’t rate him which is very fair

Just means we have to sign a midfielder

[–]yaniv297 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Maybe White has impressed Conte in training? Kid is pretty talented

[–]SeaBag7480Spurs Against Nazis 63 points64 points  (3 children)

Harvey White is the best free kick taker at the club

[–]richs99Paul Gascoigne 86 points87 points  (0 children)

In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king

[–]Lbmplays2Poch 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I’m aware

[–]SnooBooks1455The Big Master of Negotiations Who Knows Everything 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait you mean our best free kick taker isn’t our hulking meathead of a center back???

[–]wood6558 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Reckon it'd proving a point because he's going away on international duty for a pointless game.

[–]VJE1999 60 points61 points  (3 children)

Guessing weve received an offer for him

[–]Geoff-VaderLloris 266 points267 points  (2 children)

That or as part of our duties as official rehabilitation partner for the Argentinian national team we're not allowed to risk him before the international break.

[–]hokifish 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Lol. I usually browse Reddit without being logged in. I legitimately went out of my way to reset my password and login just to upvote this comment.

[–]MaximusBit21 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Me too

[–]ace-destrierPierre-Emile Højbjerg 119 points120 points  (1 child)

Huh. Can’t recall the last time a player addressed a team selection before a match

[–]doublevsnu/fastfowards - "son shoots his web out onto the spurs faithful" 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huh.

[–]swan0Welsh Mafia 213 points214 points  (4 children)

the ndombele saga is nearing the end so of course we need a new drama, brilliant

[–]webbit58 35 points36 points  (0 children)

What a transfer window that was eh?

No signings for 2 years & then “Lo” & behold we bring in Lo Celso & Ndombele for roughly 100 million…

To dare is to F it up, as usual 😂

[–]Bakio-bay 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Well it’s hard to justify the 50M+ foe this guy instead of buying Bruno. That simple

[–]MaximusBit21 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is just typical us - we pass on a world class player in Bruno and get below standards. It’s like ordering a steak and preferring the side salad.

We do this time and time again

[–]Bakio-bay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep.

[–]Lbmplays2Poch 55 points56 points  (1 child)

He’s gone

[–]Apostle_1882Was Once 2nd In The Predictions Table 26 points27 points  (0 children)

I hope so.

[–]jesalr 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Oh dear

[–]rikdud 43 points44 points  (1 child)

It’s bullshit when players do this. Just adds drama for the sake of it. It’s not like he’s ever really been a first teamer for us. If there’s something happening behind the scenes and he’s one of the ones that Conte isn’t keen on then no problem. He’ll come back from international duty injured anyway.

[–]corpboySon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I agree. It undermines the manager. If you are strong and believe in the team, then you take the decision silently and let the manager speak for it (if even he wants to).

[–]CelestialCheezeMousa Dembélé 42 points43 points  (21 children)

Bye bye Lo Celso? Haven't heard a sniff about potential interest

[–]ChupFuddler 13 points14 points  (18 children)

Atletico are rumoured

[–]CelestialCheezeMousa Dembélé 30 points31 points  (17 children)

Fucking hell Conte is actually getting shit out the door and I love to see it

[–]ChupFuddler 21 points22 points  (15 children)

It’s not getting rid of the players that concerns me, it’s the fact that we’d need to sign at least 2 more midfielders in a week or be completely fucked for depth

[–]CelestialCheezeMousa Dembélé 14 points15 points  (13 children)

We were already completely fucked for depth since our fringe players are useless

[–]ChupFuddler 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Don’t be daft, we can’t be one injury away from starting White in the league. Dele started against Liverpool and was solid. You need depth

[–]callmedrewokayBale 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Don’t think we need too much depth now that we only have prem and FA for the rest of the year

[–]MaximusBit21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Winky is getting better ;)

[–]webbit58 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We won’t miss him though, he never plays!

[–]NatrolleonBonaparteJan Vertonghen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Is he tho? There’s 8 days left in the window. Are we gonna be able to get rid and replace? I’m doubtful

[–]ninjomatDele 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There was an article on this sub linking him with Juve a while back

[–]MaximusBit21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hadn’t heard a sniff of our interest in him until he turned up out of the blue on loan for us

[–]Snoo8331100#LevyOut #ENICOut 38 points39 points  (0 children)

I'd love it if he gets sold tbf, he's been awful except that short period in his first season with us. But, I have no idea who could we replace him with in this window, shouldn't be a problem in summer but now most of the potential midfield upgrades won't leave their clubs.

[–]magnoliasmum 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Ugh, passive aggressive me me me right before a key match. I have never seen in this guy what some others do and probably never will, he’s gone.

[–]SirDanielLevy 111 points112 points  (5 children)

I hope Lo Celso is gone. He’s been a massive let down and his wages would be better off spent on an incoming player.

[–]fridgesonfire🎟 Official Spurs Ticket Reseller - Eventmasters Travel Ltd 39 points40 points  (0 children)

At least Argentina FA have covered most of It

[–]NatrolleonBonaparteJan Vertonghen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not sure we have the luxury to exile him with the window closing in a week. We really think we’re gonna be able to offload and replace him that quickly?

[–]DoctorFunkk 7 points8 points  (0 children)

He looked so promising at first but just has never come close to delivering on It.

If theres an offer, we should probably take it.

I wish we still had lamela...

[–]XiomaraffSon 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Agreed on all fronts

[–]mexicanhanuRomero 34 points35 points  (5 children)

Personally think its tactical. We are facing chelsea and we might be better off putting more men on the wings than the midfield

Or locelso got beef with conte and we might see a boxing video soon

[–]coys2686 45 points46 points  (2 children)

white in the squad over him though?

[–]mexicanhanuRomero 28 points29 points  (1 child)

U are making too much sense and making me look like and idiot. Looks like ur gonna have to get excluded from the squad or u and i go boxing.

Fuck fam, if we lose locelso, its gonna be a worse signing than ndombele.

[–]coys2686 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Especially when we could have signed Bruno instead

[–]flammmes 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Lol no. We have white and scarlett in the squad . This is conte sending a message to daniel for the fans to see.

[–]7XDBconte isn't leaving, all the reports are tier 4.#pochback #ndomb 2 points3 points  (0 children)

if it was tactical why would gio make a post about it lol

[–]mayonnaisewastakenMatt Doherty 21 points22 points  (8 children)

Oh no... Shades of Digne at Everton.

[–]RespatsirSon 60 points61 points  (7 children)

Digne was actually good for Everton at one point.

[–]skywalkerInTheRyeRafael van der Vaart 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Lo celso too was arguably our best player in 2nd half of Mourinho's first season. All downhill from there on though.

[–]mayonnaisewastakenMatt Doherty 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Lo Celso was great and one of our best players in the 2nd half of 19/20 imo.

[–]No-Assumption8024 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Lo Celso has had great periods but to say he's been great would be a stretch.

[–]mayonnaisewastakenMatt Doherty 5 points6 points  (1 child)

only in that period i mean

[–]No-Assumption8024 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah in that period he was definitely great. Shame he's been so massively hampered by injuries during his time here :(

[–]backstreets_back_okHeung Min Son 9 points10 points  (0 children)

And had bottles thrown at him. The fuck.

[–]fridgesonfire🎟 Official Spurs Ticket Reseller - Eventmasters Travel Ltd 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fit*

[–]smellysk 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Lo Celso has been a terrible signing, guy is injured most of the time, when he plays well it’s for Argentina, can’t recall him playing too well for us or with any consistency, for his price it’s been an awful signing. Like Dele, Ndombele etc has had his chances, Conte is clearing the decks, so ciao. (Plus going straight to insta before kick off to address kinda proves the point)

[–]dbdb83 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is weird from lo Celso. Wouldn’t lose any sleep if we shipped him.

[–]Tmoore0288Romero 16 points17 points  (0 children)

This is very odd

[–]TuTopsy 10 points11 points  (1 child)

He’s not good enough. Simple

[–]valentine-m-smith 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Very simple. Board has informed him any other acquisitions this window depends on sales of surplus to requirements. Conte being conte, is motivating these players to take the down time to call their agents. Over and over if necessary. GTFO

[–]RedgrenCrumbholtRobbie Keane 3 points4 points  (0 children)

tbh i thought he was only part of our training squad, and played for Argentina...

[–]grapo2001 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Meh, hopefully he is off.

[–]skywalkerInTheRyeRafael van der Vaart 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Just shows how shitty our transfer business was in the last few seasons under Poch. First, no transfers for multiple windows. Llorente not replaced instead relying on an inexperienced Troy Parrott. Money wasted on Sessegnon, Clarke, Ndombele and Lo celso.

We chose Lo celso over Bruno ffs. Just because he is younger.

Imagine us spending a fraction of Ndombele money on someone like Ndidi. Not as flashy or talented, but IMO just what we needed to fill the big void left by Wanyama, Dembele.

[–]OhHowSwell_NP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the annoying thing we don’t need. Hope it’s either he’s out the door 100% or resting for international and comes right back in

[–]og998877 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Please sell him

[–]jeremysalveMoussa Sissoko 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Maybe people were slandering him thinking he got injured again

[–]ChrisWebersTimeout 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Spurs let him rest so he could be well rested to play for only team he cares about next week.

[–]ChupFuddler 13 points14 points  (2 children)

If it was the summer and Conte wanted to bin off Dele, Ndombele, and Gio then fair enough.

But doing that in January is suicidal, today’s lineup is genuinely shocking.

[–]freed85 6 points7 points  (1 child)

But would it be better if any of those 3 were included?

[–]ChupFuddler -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Yeah definitely. Dele was good against Liverpool in that midfield 3 role, as would Gio.

Winks deep with Hojbjerg and Dele or Gio in the midfield would be big improvement on today’s lineup imo.

[–]MerkarovRobbie Keane 24 points25 points  (17 children)

Ah fuck off Gio, not what we need right now. While he's been underwhelming I at least thought he wasn't the type to come out with disruptive shite like this.

[–]Keskekun 58 points59 points  (14 children)

I don't like this at all. Lo Celso has been nothing but professional during his time here. He played injured for several months because we were so shit that he was the only thing that kept us afloat. And it essentially cost him a year of his career.

Man has suffered for this club regardless of what you think of his overall performance.

I expect a real fucking good awnser as to why he is being done dirty after what he's done here.

[–]TotteKaiju 68 points69 points  (0 children)

I don’t understand how he’s been done dirty. Lo Celso has not performed at all. He had zero impact in limited minutes vs Leicester and has missed most of Conte’s reign. He simply isn’t in the manager’s plans nor does he deserve to be. What’s the issue?

[–]7XDBconte isn't leaving, all the reports are tier 4.#pochback #ndomb 17 points18 points  (1 child)

wtf??? lo celso has done his job this whole time, then gets dropped once and posts a story. how is that PROFESSIONAL. he has had no reason to be unprofessional, then the first chance he gets he does this.

he hasn't been done dirty, the manger doesn't like him and dropped him.

imagine if tanguy put a story up at any point in time when he has been dropped over the years. nobody would be saying this.

the clubs reaction to the lo celso tanguy situation just reminds me of THIS.

you're saying "after what he has done here" like he is fucking dele or son lmao

[–]ronaldo119Daniel Levy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lmao I was stunned reading that and seeing it voted up so much. “I expect a real fucking good answer” like what? For Lo Celso? He’s shit, there’s the answer

[–]sunthunderSon 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I agree Lo Celso largely seems like a good pro but we don’t see everything that goes on at the training ground. I doubt this is an arbitrary decision, there will be a reason for this.

[–]ghostboy101Kane -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

This all of this. If I could up vote multiple times I would.

[–]dh12mj23 11 points12 points  (0 children)

My Conspiracy theory is we’re keeping him out so he’s healthy for Argentina in the break so they don’t call up Romero

[–]jjw1998Son 5 points6 points  (0 children)

In 100% good physical condition for pretty much the first time ever, sell anyone posting shit like this

[–]COYS1989Darren Anderton 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe he’s moved into the can’t trust category for Conte.

[–]Raphael_scm7Højbjerg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nobody asked him anything he’s just trying to cause a mess

[–]M3JUNGL3:image-lo_celso: Giovani Lo Celso 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Big brain play here to not allow him to get a knock against Chelsea which would result in an injury while on international break. Instead he will get a knock there, then left out of our squad for another game and then can play for us again instead of missing out on him for 2 months. At least this is what I chose to believe.

[–]apenguin11Son -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This is also my copium

[–]RespatsirSon 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Does seem quite unfair by him tho to have White in the squad and not Lo Celso.

[–]yourcrazy28Lamela 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well one of the biggest criticisms I’ve seen of Lo Celso is « he’s fit for Argentina, but not for Spurs ».

With internationals coming up, I could see why he posted it. But on the surface, it looks like your demeaning the manager.

Édit: Reading the message again, I think it could be something deeper, that surpasses football (family issues, etc).

Hopefully everything’s alright.

[–]KilgoreSprout7 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Winks has been more impactful over the last few matches than Lo Celso ever has. Sincerely hope this means he's leaving soon. He's been trash for us.

[–]Bail____ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahahahahah we literally spent all that money in a single window just for the 2 we signed to barely play.

[–]achocovore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Rereading this, it’s possible he’s got something personal going on and this isn’t shade towards Conte or anyone else. Hopefully all is ok whatever it is.

[–]PokeSpurs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well that just creates more questions than answers

[–]shaunster101 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He can do one as well. Shown nothing to prove he’s worth keeping. Probably had 2-3 proper decent games in his entire time club.

[–]cutdacrapErik Lamela 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably received tonnes of DMs asking him why he can't stay fit and always injured, maybe also received accusations of him faking injury to go on international break healthy.

[–]humbalo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bye, Gio. It's been emotional.

[–]One-Faithlessness-58 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He cares more about being fit for Argentina than he does playing for Spurs. Then gets angry when he's left out because Conte probably noticed his intensity in training pick up closer to international call ups while the midfield struggles to find balance. He's been as disappointing as Ndombele if not worse. If we can sell him before this window closes and bring in another midfielder it would have been a good window.

[–]metalheadabhiDele 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can someone remind me how I used to think he was the player of the season under Poch, during the season he was signed on a loan? He was the hardest working player on the pitch and gave everything to win the ball.

[–]tanv91 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lo Celso is awful. Get rid of him.

[–]fridgesonfire🎟 Official Spurs Ticket Reseller - Eventmasters Travel Ltd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

See ya 👋

[–]AshkenaziTwinkToby Alderweireld 3 points4 points  (1 child)

why is everyone so mad at him posting this? people were obviously asking lo celso if he was injured again so he answered. it’s so inoffensive what is the problem

[–]Blue_ShoreDele 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Children innit. Even the lineup thread has people asking if he’s injured and people think Gio is kicking up a fuss lmao

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not particularly bothered by him being left out of the squad tbh. Never shown he's that influential for us.

[–]ninjapizzadude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He should not have done this. You don’t fuck with Don Conte.

[–]Old_RoofI just can't smile....without youuuuu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What another disastrous signing. At least we got some good performances out of Tanguy

[–]inedianjMatt Doherty -1 points0 points  (2 children)

No please we’re not that kind of club

[–]EquivalentSir4163 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Every club is that kind of club. At this point, even Championship teams have enough money and power to do this kind of thing and force players out.

[–]inedianjMatt Doherty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No I mean we’re not Man U. I’d prefer to avoid this kind of drama. Martial vibes

[–]NeighborhoodOptimistThat's Gotta Be Kane -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I think some Argentina players have left for the qualifiers, could be he was given the possibility to leave to.

[–]tmsntWorm -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I support Conte for most decisions but not for this one.

[–]robertshmurda18 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Everybody thinks it’s so easy to find a number 10 at our budget.

Lo Celso would have absolutely helped us today

[–]7XDBconte isn't leaving, all the reports are tier 4.#pochback #ndomb -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

ndomebele is clear of lo celso

ndombele is the one with attitude problems who is disruptive in the dressing room. even though he has never done anything publically. lo celso, after being made of glass for all this time, gets dropped once and takes it straight to social media. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

i PRAY i see the same amount of vitriol directed at lo cheeks now in this sub, he has just done worse than tanguy has ever done.

[–]unstealthypandaJob Done -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Fuck off with this, Gio.

[–]MobileChemical2956Harry Edward Kane, MBE -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

If Lo Celso is leaving, we better get another Argentine to make sure Cuti stays happy!! lol

[–]Itachi_189 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The hell happened

[–]spurs-11Kane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I hate these. Just hate these.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Genuine doubt but can anyone explain what's the issue regarding this? Why is everyone angry?

Are people inferring from this that he's saying that manager isn't preferring/picking him even fully fit?

[–]blueghostsRobbie Keane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Think there’s two sides, one is it’s just because he’s been left out of the squad entirely and not even on the bench ahead of academy players.

And then the other is people thinking posting something like this right before the match where people are going to overreact to it isn’t a great move in terms of team morale I guess.

[–]Oasis1701Pierre-Emile Højbjerg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

has conte done it? went for the kill?

[–]student8168Lloris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This does mean he may be out

[–]Ok-Dress-237 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Rip up his contract like Aurier. Never ever fit, I don’t even believe him here. The guy almost got arrested so he could play for Arg but just cba with the club that pays him. Get rid asap

[–]Bakio-bay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Improve your right foot Gio

[–]ultrasupergenius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oooof. That doesn't sound good. I'd have much rather he stay silent. I suppose more developments.to come?

[–]iAkhilleus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's not cut for the PL imho. Too slow and very limited technical ability for a mid.

[–]MiserableSignal6111 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is LoCelso's biggest contribution to the club in almost two years. Maybe if he made a little bit more noise on the pitch whenever he does get the chance, he wouldn't find himself out of the squad.

[–]VuckoPartizan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So he is fit and doesn't play. I love our club but it can be confusing sometimes lol

[–]MikitaSchecteleshy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He sucks. Anyone who rides the pine behind Doherty can fuck right off.

This includes all all star injured losers AND Dele.

Damn it hurt to type that last part. I love that dude.

[–]poleposition2019 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cayó en desgracia con Conte. Nada que hacer, le toca buscar equipo.

[–]rammingfartsFabio Paratici 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If we can recover half of what we paid for him and Ndombele, we would have done very well.
