'If It's Football, It's Vital'

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY.

Well, that was a strange window. No signings made on deadline day and transfer record broken no less than 3 times. Conflicting viewpoints from many fans yesterday regarding the assembled squad and whether it is strong enough.

Good to see that the likes of Eriksen and Lamela have been added to give us some creativity that some feel we lack, only a plus for me as still this season the same as last we look all too slow in our build up play. Eriksen has a very important role I feel in how this team performs this season and he has the skill set to be a massive player for Spurs for years to come. Plenty of caps for his country and Champs league experience, when you consider Everton paid circa £12 million for McCarthy, you have to admit it looks like a steal the fee we paid for him. Lamela is another with bags of potential and comes with the tag of record signing. We will see great things from this lad I'm sure. Great dribbler and has a sound reading of the game. Lot of money agreed but let's not forget some of the great players Baldini has unearthed and brought to Europe in the past. The guy knows talent when he sees it.

Chiriches will offer something different at the back and in my opinion is another very good signing. Adept at bringing the ball out from the back, and with surging runs forward he could very well form an amazing partnership with Verts, very excited about this one. Chadli not going to tear the wing up with pace, but has a good first touch and when up to speed will be very effective at linking play and scoring goals. He has played AM for his country and his manager has stated that when fit he is the first name he looks to put on the team sheet. Not bad when you consider he plays for a very good improving Belgium side.

Paulinho and Capoue, well it does what it says on the tin. Very strong combative Midfielders, Paulinho has a knack of getting in the box with late runs and Capoue has a habit of, well stopping anything that moves. Awesome.

Soldado is a great finisher, make no mistake. He just needs the service, hopefully that will come from Eriksen and others more suited in the hole. Good, good signing.

Bad call I feel to get rid of Benny as we have now only got Rose as recognised LB. I know Fryers and Verts, Naughton can play there but this is not their primary positions. Chiriches and Naughton, Kaboul can cover Walker and I for one am all good with this more so than the LB. We may be considered a little light up top and I feel it was a bad call not to add another striker. Injury to Soldado and we are left with Defoe and Ade, whom i believe was pretty much told he was surplus to requirements. Not good.

The ugly side of this window has been the way we have been shafted by RM. 'Special relationship?'. Very funny, (£85.3 million for Bale makes me laugh tho').

All in all a good window, great signings. The squad is a whole lot stronger and we are the team who have improved our squad dramatically. We just need to allow AVB and the players the time to gel and get up to speed and show us all the talent that they DO possess. Patience my friends, Spurs are looking good.
