One bid. Two bids. Three bids. Four bids. Daniel Levy always seems to leave his dealings to the very last minute and it has some good outcomes, but in general, he leaves things so late and it always end up being to the detriment of the football club. Tottenham knew in January that they were light up front. Kane was on fire but it was clear to everyone we needed a striker. Not a striker to cover for him but to play alongside him. It was so obvious. Except to Pochettino, Daniel Levy, Franco Baldini. 4 people who are tasked with making signings to better the team. I was pleased when Mitchell was appointed but since he has been at the club what has he actually done? Nearly as little as Pochettino himself!! Threadbare Squad Lloris, Vorm, Walker, Trippier, Davies, Rose, Vertonghen, Alderwereld, Wimmer, Dier, Eriksen, Chadli, Mason, Lamela, Kane, Son, N'Jie, Bentaleb, Dembele, Alli, Pritchard, Carrol, Townsend. Okay, so I have missed a few players but our squad is totally threadbare. The youth need to be given a chance and I think the likes of Alli and Pritchard could make a breakthrough this season, but with the EUROPA league coming up soon, this squad is going be stretched to the very limit. With injuries we could be in real trouble. Real trouble. Planning is key When Pochettino joined Spurs I had every sympathy that he inherited a poor squad. But he has had over a year now to make the changes he needed to. I have been pleased with the acquisitions of Wimmer and Alderwereld and hope that N'Jie and Son will prove to be quality signings but cannot really comment on them yet. There is no excuse for Tottenham to leave things to the last minute. None at all. As soon as the season ended, surely Poch identified the players he wanted to improve his squad. We now end up putting in stupid bids. Charlie Austin demonstrated last year, playing for a poor team what a player he is. But Spurs made no approach for him at all and all QPR wanted was 15 million pounds!! He would have been a steal!! And been a great signing in my opinion. We are also stuck with Adebayor. Yedlin looks good to me but he has gone on loan. Again , shocking at every level. Onward We Go Whatever my thoughts, your thoughts, we now have to move forward with what we have. Dele Alli excites me. He is ambitious and will get forward and get goals from midfield. He is strong and creative and I expect him to become a firm fans favorite this season. Once Pritchard is fully fit I think he also has a big part to play. It is now up to Pochettino to work out what his tactics are and to get the likes of N'Jie and Son in the team and hopefully supporting Kane up front. With the right tactics, maybe we could get a trophy but I think the top 6 will be a very long way from Spurs with this squad. I truly hope that I am wrong. Once again, Daniel Levy has failed the fans of this great football club. Once again ENIC have alienated another club. West Brom will probably not deal with Levy again. So Berahino will not be playing for us today or any other day. The master negotiator is a fraud. Sadly we are stuck with him for the foreseeable future. And mediocrity is likely to be the glory that Spurs 'enjoy' for some time to come. But, as ever, COME ON YOU SPURS!!!!
