Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
As the dust settles on an entertaining world cup focus is now back to the transfer window.
Yes that's right the transfer window it is in fact open and deals have been done between numerous clubs all over, I know amazing it really is.
We ended last season on the words from Pochettino of being "Bold, Brave & needing to take Risks" and as I put in a previous thread the great Pochettino himself said that buying players late does not help the squad.
Now as ever us fans with differing views will all draw our own conclusions on what is actually meant by 'Brave/Bold/Risk' such...
So on the morning of a World Cup Semi Final that we are competing in for the 1st time since I was a boy and the feel good factor surrounding our own National team it got me thinking what Effect could this World Cup have on us as a club once it's all done and dusted?
With no less than 9 Spurs players available to represent their countries from the last 4 and with our club captain already in the Final it's now a wait and see how our own will do.
(It's a great leveler on those who wish to play the underdog card on the actual quality we possess as a side overall.)
Like an outstanding vintage wine, some things in life only get better with age.

Great result in the end the Spurs shone through when they were needed.
It wasn't a great game, we started pretty sharp committed in the challenge, purposeful with our play on the front foot.
The tempo seemed to fizzle out after 20minutes and it settled into a typical England tug of war.
Barrios being allowed to double headbutt someone with the benefits of VAR to be sure and stay on the pitch set the tone for what was to come.
Marginally the better side we finally got our break when Harry was rugby tackled to the floor infront of the referee and the penalty was given....
Jack Wilshere was certain it was all over. At 26-years-young he was resigned to accept the fact. His football career now destined for no more than a meander in mediocrity; the upper echelons of the game fading from view — and fast.
His had been a cruel, cruel summer. The first domino had fallen in May when a crooked-nosed, bumbling idiot of an England manager made the huge mistake of envisioning Football Coming Home without “Super Jack” in his team. This, despite a Herculean 12 starts in the Premier League for Arsenal last season and a masterful showing against...
