So that’s it then, window 2 of the Pochettino era closed. Some more promising potential through the door in the shape of Yedlin & Alli. Naughton gone, Lennon out on loan and finally BAE off the wage bill. After a will he won’t he saga we failed to get Adebayor out of the club even on loan much to the dismay of many of us. And the same can be said of Kaboul & Chiriches etc. Many will point to the business side of things, but there were some decent offers on dead wood that are of no help to the club, so why aren’t they moved on? If they are being difficult settle it (within reason) as a lump sum, to me that’s better than paying a big wage to not only a bench warmer, but a toxic bad apple that essentially offers nothing. Now although Yedlin & Alli are good purchases, I can’t help feeling slightly disappointed at the lack of ambition in the 1st team yet again and not just this window either. Poch will only have so long to deliver and buying talent for 5 years’ time will not help him in the next 2 years, he needs to be backed and backed properly. We currently sit in a good position to make a viable charge for top 4, we’re in the final of the League Cup and latter stages of the Europa which could also give us CL football. My worry is that we are an injury to Eriksen or Kane away from wasting a surprising, but very promising position. Now, I know January can be difficult, but anyone that thinks we don’t need another forward is either deluded or clueless, but again we knew this in the summer also and many other windows. Yet, it is forever ignored. This is/was always a transitional season, but I feel as explained the surprising position we sit in we should be speculating to accumulate, if we limp in to another fruitless finish from where we are due to lack of fire power then this will be certainly yet another opportunity missed. And every time we miss out our best players heads start to turn. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
