    And if your of the opinion that we should have signed a proper multifunctional one. A real one not like Sonny who imo cannot play as a CF no9 type you can throw in the money from njie and nkoudou also which is another 20m plus llorente 12 janssen 18m you're up around the 50m figure. Who could you have signed with that kind of money 2 yrs ago. Aubamayang Werner vardy reus to name a few.
    Honestly are we going to spend 18m on this nobody from sociedad who has the same amount of goals as arsenal and West ham flop lucas perez this term. He's missed 10 big chances and scored 6 big chances in his 8 goal tally this season. So he's netted only 2 half chances in 20 league games. His goals look scruffy and will be gobbled up by the better quality keepers in this league. We seem that with janssen that the goal scoring from one league don't necessarily carry in this unforgiving league. Also he scores headers yet we don't put the ball in the box from out wide again we seen that with llorente. Aurier puts the most balls in the 6 yard but he drills low and hard. I'd be breaking the bank for werner I really would. He's absolutely perfect for us.

    It gets ever more painful Felon as we enter this last week of the transfer window, yet another Ground Hog Day. There can be only one man alive that thinks it’s right to not sign a striker - unfortunately he’s our Chairman. Watching the efforts of Moura struggle manfully is such a painful watch, as has been watching us this term. Ever since we signed Louis Saha I’ve been waiting and watching in hope, but it has all been in vain.....the joys of living life as a Y***o......COYS

    He will piss that league I reckon. Time n space in a team that dominates possession with the movement of their front 2 or 3.

    The lack of a central striker in the spurs squad means, Spurs either get one in the next 6 days or go with the present players. I haven't seen much business done and i doubt any team would consider selling their star striker at this time of year. The two names Piatek/Willian are the main links to spurs. Piatek reminds me of Klose the former Germany player. I haven't heard of Willian so have to take the spurs scouts on trust.
    Spurs do need a striker whether any of these two are good enough is another question. COys

    He is Lukaku type, only even less agile.

    Ffs I happy with some of the younger players but lord do we need more up front and someone in the middle who can win the ball oh and a left back Tanga isn't a left back he drawn to the centre of defence too many times leaving acres of space stick him in the middle instead of Sanchez the boy is decent and Lo Celso looks decent although like to see how they both do against City maybe Levy will splash the Eriksen cash on at least a striker and a CDM but then again with our history I doubt it

    Another game where it should be screaming at Levy that we need a striker ASAP.Moura is not the answer too lightweight. He does work hard when he loses ball unlike Ali but we are too easily bullied.Has Mourino got a downer on ndombele as we needed him on in last 20 mins to retain some possession.Tanganga should be centre half not left back although he was with celso the only bright thing in the game?At least we are still in the cup and maybe get a nice draw

    Can someone explain to me why winks stayed the whole game on the field when it brings nothing? Neither defensively nor offensively ...! While Ndombele is much better and he stayed on the bench? Average match overall with once again Lo Celso who is our man of the match!

    What do you make of the current rag bag of a team...a small squad, impacted by key player injuries and no-shows like Ndombele.

    We’re being ripped apart by the current/persistent transfer policy - ffs it’s January 25th, we’ve no striker, none, and we are so paying the price for that and the poor investments in the past - Sanchez, Lamela, Aurier to name but three.

    Playing Tanganga at left back is a painful watch, sits too narrow and it does nothing for the lad, reminds me of a strong Kyle Naughton - centre back instead of Sanchez for me, with Toby left side CB.

    Gio....a player who works hard, beats players, takes knocks and bounces back. Eriksen never did that, period. The one shining light in a season of much darkness....on the basis it’s too early to judge Japhet.

    Finally Dele - I will give him the benefit of the doubt for now. I think he needs to keep working hard, get his touch back, or we buy a striker and he plays off him. ...mmmm.....

    GLC is that box-to- box MF that Spurs do not have since Dembele was sold. He is an absolute gem of footballer. He alone is an excuse for 2 windows of inactivity in recruitment, as he totally made up for it. So stop blaming luck of signings, unless you are fan of Nkudou, Jenssen or Aurier. Spurs will sign a striker, a bulky Brazilian, but for the away games, like today, he wouldn't help, since he is not pacey and serves well as 6 ft box target at long sieges in home ties. Most importantly they will sign LoCelso.

    In the game where JM was nursing one goal lead, introduction of Ndobele was not appropriate. The lad didn't play for awhile and would need to come in should Spurs have been 2 or 3 goals up. Dier, I believe, was ready to sub for Winks, but ball didn't get out before Aurier was dispossessed in FBT (Foith Bermuda Triangle) area and the equalizer was conceded. After that, getting Winks replaced lost sense, but since Dier was eager to enter, Mou took Dele out to show him his annoyance with Alli-gma.

    What are you on spurporter because I want some.If you think signing decelso makes up for all the non signing windows and we should not blame this for our current demise then you really have lost the plot big time.We still need at least 4 signings to even get close to top 4 with a striker paramount.Now Kane is out does it not justify our opinion that Pochetino was only as good as He was made out to be because of Kane’s purple patch.

    As everyone has pointed out if spurs had a striker they would have won that game. Ali, son and Moura are too hit and miss, however, i'll cut Ali a little slack as he makes better decisions than the other two. Son seems as if he is in another time zone, so out of sync he even got in the way of Loco's goal bound shot.
    Spurs were quite slick on the counter and would have created more with better final passes, Lamela was a big culprit going for the spectacular pass when a simple pass is on.
    Spurs need to reinforce the attack, there is talk of interest in Bergwin, never seen him play, heard he's a fast wide player, if he's any good spurs should sign him and a striker.

    Seems like he might not be a starter, in that he only played 16, scoring 5. Looks like he featured in their European games, so Europa league level. He’s 5’10” and a winger.....do we need a 5’10’’ winger, who hasn’t featured as a regular first teamer for PSV.....mmm

    What makes you think that Spurs would have bought a good players, if Levy could spend on the squad? Whom Spurs signed prior to the recruitment hiatus? Moura? Good, but suffers from bipolar, Sanchez? Good, but not a star. Aurier? No comments. The last star Spurs signed was Son in 2015. Dele precluded him one window being bought in the winter of same year. After that the 7 windows past before LoCelso was obtained last summer. Only 2 of those 7 windows were barren. What about the other 5?
    If we follow some posters here and concede that Pochettino was nothing special , but just caught lightning in the bottle with world star players on Spurs squad built by Paul Mitchell , then it explained why Spurs did not buy anyone for 2 windows. They realize that they **** at recruitment . They realized that Steve Hitchen isn't Paul Mitchell.
    Hitchen is still at the helm as Director of Recruitment. Mourinho didn't install his man. Yet.

    Spurs only have 3 wide attacking players, Son, Moura and Lamela and with Ce being sold and Lamelas injury record buying a specialist wide player makes sense to me. Obviously a striker needs to be obtained as well even a loan till the end of the season. There is a need for a Dm and a few defenders, however, this business can be dealt with in the summer.
    Mp's squad requirements didn't go for wide attackers but for multi purpose midfielders.
    MP's teams lacked pace and dribbling skill and relied on physical fitness.
    Mp was a coach who had a plan and stuck to it, he coached players only to execute the plan, even to the detriment of the players overall development.
    In the end the plan wasn't good enough and now JM has to sought out the squad and implement his plan, already i am feeling a lot better under JM as he seems to do and say thing's that make sense. Coys

    Haven’t been here for a while but I thought I would give my 2 cents!

    I’m generally in the Poch was good for us camp, prior to the last 4 or 5 years, I never particularly thought we entered the match as favourites or that other teams “set up to beat us”. However we have just gone through a period where we were rightly considered as one of the top 4 or 6

    Having said that, something happened with Poch and the team, we went from a frightening pressing team to a keep possession one that was a bit devoid of ideas, definitely Dembele was under rated and he was missed but also the defence went missing a while ago. Maybe that was due to no Dembele, Dier regression and Wanyama one season wonder but still strange when we generally have internationals in the back line

    I detest Mourinho but he’s growing on me, I think ultimately a change was needed but also I think some of the work in progress was likely to have had results. I think lo celso is going to be great, loved his run passes 5 players (going forwards!) and he isn’t afraid to get down and dirty in the tackles as well. Hopefully we won’t miss CE (the old version) as much. Also if Ndombele stays fit then he will be a good addition

    Personally I think that now CE is gone it will help the team settle into a different direction, it must have been unsettling for them

    The activity in January transfer window hasn’t been huge but at least it has been (and hopefully) will be something which is more that we can say for last Jan, when we got rid of Moussa without replacing

    I know I am an eternal glass half full but I don’t think we are far off where we want to be once the new signings start working as they should. Southampton wasn’t a bad result, they were on a good run and were at home, I thought with LoCelso we made a lot more forward movements and Ali was better connecting between the two. Be interesting to see how the defence fares when Davies is back, he is not world class but I think they are more balanced with him, plus develop Tanganga and we could be stronger there

    Anyway having said that now we will probably get thumped by City but either way we need to be a bit patient to let some of the new guys bed in

    COYS

    This may not be the first time this has been said Spurporter, but tell the truth, you’re Ramos in disguise aren’t you....
