It always amazes me when the summer transfer window opens that many teams have already done a lot of business!! Liverpool seem to have not learned from last season that loads of signings doesn't make success, but we shall see. Sadly, I think we are already starting to see that Spurs will have a transfer window of pain. The arrival of Wimmer is welcome and the sale of Paulinho to a club at his level is very welcome indeed, but it does appear that anyone we get linked with either moves to another club or signs a new contract at their current clubs. The latest big name linked with us, yet again, is that of Benteke from Aston Villa. Now, the whole saga regarding Spurs and him last year became embarrassing and typical of the lunacy that Daniel Levy provides to any a transfer window. This time round we have been linked again but Benteke himself seems intent on signing for Liverpool. We seemed to be front runners for Danny Ings, but he also opted for the lights of the Mersey rather than the wonders of downtown Tottenham. Levy has been pronounced by the media over the years as a hard bargainer, a great deal maker, but never by me! His constant stand offs and dealings with transfers over the years has actually started to put players and agents on red alert if Spurs come knocking. Why go through the process of dealing with Levy when you can sign for clubs in the Champions league or teams who openly state their ambition is winning the league? People know Levy now and rather than deal with him they are heading to other clubs or staying put. Of course, there is still plenty of time left in the transfer window, but the season starts a week earlier this season on the 8th August, so it would be nice, if just for once we had all our targets in the bag before we set off to Old Trafford for our season opener. I wouldn't be at all surprised if one or even two of our current squad are facing us come that date. Yes, it would be madness to sell Kane but if fifty million pounds is offered and Kane starts to have any doubts, levy will sell. Why? Because since 2001, that is exactly what Daniel Levy and ENIC do. In fact, levy is so shrewd he is looking potentially at losing over 25 millions this summer providing Soldado and a few others are shipped out of the door. Come August 8th , I will already have considered my prediction for Spurs season. Last season, I predicted 6th, but they overachieved (sarcasm) and finished fifth heading for another season in Europe's second competition. Looking at what Spurs have to offer, new stadium, no Champions league football (again) nothing to suggest silverware is on the horizon , then I just can't see Spurs having a very fruitful transfer window. (Again) Pochettino will need to develop the likes of Pritchard and Yedlin although Yedlin is going out on loan and now it appears so is Dele Ali. Both of those decisions, I question. Why? Because if we are to rely on youth then what is the point in signing youth and then not utilising it? Get them in the team, then we can all set our expectations realistically and perhaps think about the future. I will of course gladly eat my words if the transfer window proves me wrong. Gladly!!!!! However, if things go as I expect them to, Spurs will be in the top 7 but not the top four. (Again) Come on you Spurs!!! Prove me wrong!!
