Yet another shambolic transfer window.

In true Tottenham manor we've taken great strides to destroy the beginning of our start to the season yet again!

Only a couple of weeks ago I wrote an article named NO DISTRACTIONS! since this time we've gradually digressed from a CL team, to one that will be competing in the middle of the table.

One more pre-season game against Espanyol to go and we still haven't seen Paulinho, Soldado and nothing much of BAE, Kaboul, Chadli, we've lost Caulker, Ade's is in bed, Holtby injured, Defoe injured, Jan injured, Daws injured and our second highest scorer Dempsey has gone, along with possibly Bale our top scorer?

For one; who on earth arranged this pre-season???? Surely we should have had a couple of games in the UK, followed by a proper tour in Far East, America or India to bang the promo drum and build up stamina over a period of time - not throw our development team in against teams like Monaco? We clearly have tried to reduce our pre season for the long season ahead, but I don't see what benefit this has brought to Tottenham?

A team that plays in a style that demands high fitness levels for pressuring the opposition I fear we could be in for a terrible to start to the season as we have no real match fitness. Man City, Chelski and even Liverpool have all had good build ups to the beginning of the league and most notably City look like they will fly out the traps come the 1st game.

Secondly; I'm not a Levy hater, but I think again the antics of our close season business is going to cost us over the first four or five games of the season, and probably another self inflicted missing out on the top four?

We have to hope that Soldado scores from the off and Paulinho also gets in on the games otherwise we're in for a tough start to this season. Positives about pre-season is Rose and Fryers along with Townsend who is looking continue in the shadow of Bales rise to fame, and is starting to turn into the player we hoped he would.

Unfortunately Lennon seems to have reached his peak with us and for me would be a player I'd be happy to sell on once Townsend, Chadli or whoever is prepared to take his position. Finally we need at least one centre back if not two..
