So after finally doing the right thing and paying Kane nearer his market value at least strengthening our position of keeping him for a while longer where is the brave risks that Pochettino spoke of? Shopping in the Championship? For a totally uninspiring Grealish and offering way under Villas valuation hoping to play on their poor financial position, I'm sorry but imo this whole scenario has Levy posturing all over it for what would seem a signing solely based around saving money again and will not improve the team a single bit. Poch talking about trophies next step - oh of course he's only talking about the Big 1s League and Champions League trophies because the domestic trophies he and this team can't be arsed or have the character to win are below them and our pedigree for League and European Cups is so high it's there for everyone to see. There are a few things that need to happen if we are to improve to be serious about next level , the dead wood/sub standard/perennial failures all need shifting, they also all need replacing with players that are solid/consistent at worst and the 1st team out put needs to be improved with more options that can actually regularly influence games. Dreamers who think that this core of players will some how improve more and evolve into winners without serious investment are just that dreamers. We didn't improve last year as much as some want to dress it up, less goals , more conceded , squeezed into top4 with a game to go , won nothing again. Poch wanted signings done before the WC , little did we know he was talking about his Book sales in Barcelona because unless my watch is Broken it Kicks off Today! The Stadium looks to not be completed in the time scale set (done incredibly well to get where it is currently by the way) so at least the Happy Clappers support can get their excuses in early as to why we couldn't keep pace. So this Brave New World so far is low balling a struggling side for a player that is never gonna improve our first team and being prepared to wait it out ....... Ground Hog Summer again.
