I haven't found time to write up anything for Vital Spurs in a long while, but I just thought I'd throw this out there - is Mr Levy merely trying to keep the fans on side by these deadline day 'nearly' moves?
Looking over the previous couple of transfer windows we seem to make a last minute dash to sign up a few players - and we have done so with the likes of Van der Vaart, Kranjcar, and more recently the likes of Dempsey - but all under £10M. However on recent deadline days, we've been rumoured to be trying to sign big names, Damiao in this window, Moutinho in Summer 2012, and if I recall correctly we had supposedly tabled large bids for Llorente and Rossi in previous windows... But are these bids genuine efforts to sign these players?
It doesn't take a genius to gather that if we were not going to secure the services of Damiao for the rumoured £13-£17M we offered, so if you were going to test the water, you would of done so prior to the last day of the transfer window - especially when you consider the part-ownership of the player. The same with Moutinho; AVB kept making it clear Porto were hard to bargain with, and the deal was going to take a lot of work - so why would you make a sincere effort to try and capture the main piece of the jigsaw of another club, on the last day when they would then need to find a replacement? I don't know what happens behind the scenes, and I don't claim to have ITK sources... But from the way it is portrayed in the media, I'd say it's just an attempt to appease the fans' ambitions of Tottenham Hotspur.
At the end of the day we're a club with a good, but not great income, trying to build a new stadium to be able to compete with the big boys in the not too distant future. We have a good squad with some exceptional individuals, as well as a great manager. We can't afford the big name striker we all crave, so let's just get behind the players we have at our disposal. The main positive to draw from the January window is that Arsenal, nor Everton strengthened significantly either. I wouldn't want to make a prediction on the outcome of this season, but it makes for great viewing. COYS.
