I'd like to keep Lloris, but if PSG is gonna throw some of their insane transfer money at us, I might consider it.

I want Gareth Bale.

I would love to see him revitalize his career here, but would he gel with the squad? And how much of his wage bill would we be responsible for? We have other, more pressing needs to address with our budget. RB for sure, but we seem to be shopping at LB for some reason. If Eriksen or Alderweireld leave, we'll need people to fill their very large shoes.

I like him, I just don't see it happening financially.

So are Houston folks gonna watch the final at Pimlico? Is that place kid friendly? My son will want to watch it with me.

I will always love Bale, but I don't think he would be a good fit now. One of the biggest complaints from RM is that he doesn't have a very high tactical IQ. He likes to play off his cannon left foot, and has a hard time adjusting to a system that is not centered around that. AVB essentially built the team around Bale almost exclusively going to his left, which resulted in some spectacular goals and some average Spurs teams. I don't think he will fit with Poch.

I'm assuming that, unless we move to a larger venue or something. There were a TON of people at the Liverpool watch party last year for the final, but that's Liverpool, obviously. My friend is a regular and he told me they might have less than a dozen folks for a regular league game but there were hundreds for that event.

I have no idea what the rules are on Pimlico and kids; I'd just call and ask them. I've seen kids at places like the Phoenix on Westheimer before.

I would be a fan of choosing a bigger location...I went for the game against Ajax and it was full.

Add in that this is the championship, against Liverpool, and on a Saturday instead of midweek.....I think it will be huge.

The former official LFC bar in Houston was so crowded, but it was an awesome atmosphere. They took space in the parking garage next door and set up a massive screen there. Basically, it's going to be way more crowded than you'd think. There were people there at 9am.

I just asked this question of the Houston Spurs' twitter account. I'll let y'all know what they say.

Sweet, thank you!

Pitch 25 is huge and would be pretty cool....

That place will probably be at capacity without us, so I don't think it would be a good choice for a group.

haha I know, you're right. What are some places that would be big enough but not already over crowded?

You have accurately rendered the question of the hour!

I'm not involved in the planning or anything, I'm just an occasional attendee.

If y'all go another summer without making significant signings then he needs to go. The fact he extended his contract last, I thought, was a sign spurs were going to open the purse strings...then y'all literally did nothing.

No way he sticks around if he doesn't get a good transfer budget this summer and he shouldn't.

Had my birthday this weekend. Received a Tottenham scarf and a 2015-16 home kit with Son on the back.

Anyone know of a pub on the NW side of Houston, Cypress or Tomball where there's usually a decent contingent of Spurs supporters? Looking for a plan B in case I can't make it to Pimlico

And the scum lost in the UEL final. No matter what happens Saturday, that will always provide a little more comfort for the summer.

No doubt I was getting nervous that they would win and go in on our lack of hardware if we fall short on Saturday.

Our making the CL final and them turning into a perennial Europa League team (next year will be their third in a row!) is pretty tasty, particularly when you consider the effect on desirability for potential transfers.

HELL YEAH! Little concerned that it'll fill up before I get there. Say hey if you go - I'll be the guy with his arm in a sling (shoulder surgery).

Gonna wear my 2015-16 home kit (blue sash). Today I'm wearing my Spurple Camo jersey.
