Spend Wisely, Not Foolishly

Remember when you were all young and given money from your parents or other family members and they patronisingly pat you on your head and say 'Don`t go spending it all in one go!`? I bet 9 times out of 10 that money was spent on 1p sweets or walnut whips (well, I certainly did). Hardly spending wisely was it?

At Tottenham, in times past, we would spend un-wisely on players that turn out to be nothing but a waste of money. Like that one sweet in the packet you didn`t want but ended up buying (then like me, coax other people to eat them). How times have changed over the last 3-4 seasons. Gone are the days where we would buy 4-5 players in a transfer window and have a rocky start to the season and gone are the days where we bought players that turn out to be a waste of space.

Top teams don`t need to buy vast amount of players once the transfer window is open. They only need to bring in 2-3 to add strength, experience, a new dimension and competition for starting places. The "Why fix something that`s not broken" is a good quote in this instance.

Currently we have a strong team; the ingredients are there, the formula works and the foundations are strong. Sure, we do need to shift deadwood players but that`s more for funding new players that come in. I won`t go into the areas where we need to strengthen; from last season it`s obvious where we need to add firepower. The inclusion of Paulinho so far has got me excited. The prospect of an all Brazilian midfield is intoxicating. It`ll certainly add that new dimension we need.

The reason why I wrote this article is because of Liverpool FC. So far, they have brought in Toure, Mignolet, Aspas and Alberto. It doesn`t look like Brendan Rogers is going to stop there either. I can understand Rogers putting a stamp on Liverpool and making it his own but what he inherited from King Kenny was an already good squad. They needed to strengthen in midfield since the sale of the brilliant Xabi Alonso and probably on the left side as well.

Maybe he`s just buying to show the fans he`s creating a team that can emulate Rafa Benitez`s European Glory team? Next season, it`ll be make or break. Not only has he spent Liverpool`s millions but he`s also adding players that could cost Liverpool`s European credentials and turn them into a mid-table team. Wouldn`t that be awful?...

Newcastle brought in a load of players to apparently 'push for Top 4` after their successful 2nd season in the Premier League under manager Alan Pardew. After shifting key players and bringing in half of the French International team it proved near disaster for Pardew. He battled relegation as well as abuse from the Newcastle faithful`s.

Here at the N17 club, I feel we don`t need to bring in 4-5 players in. Maybe 2-3 to add that strength up front where we`re most lacking at present. It`s always been about spending wisely and in Daniel Levy we do have a shrewd negotiator but with an open cheque book for the right player that`s right for the good of the team. Wenger, at ars*nal, has apparent 'millions` to spend but doesn`t. Why is that? I`d hate to say this, but he doesn`t need to add 4-5 players each open transfer window. He finds an area that needs improvement and he gets it. It shows when his team consistently make Top 4 even after losing key players like Fabregas and Van Persie.

It`s all about identifying where Spurs need improvement and as you fans will obviously know, up front is the key to our success next season. AVB has Baldini to get the man he wants and handle the dealings so he can 100% focus on the team. I just don`t want to see last minute buys and, most importantly, the inclusion of pointless players to the team.
