You might have noticed that despite the sale of Pavlyuchenko on deadline day that there was yet again a lack of spending at White Hart Lane. Pav left and our replacement was a 33 year old has-been who is also injury prone plus another injury prone defender in Ryan Nelsen.
Harry has been tipped to leave at the end of the season and take the England job meaning Spurs would need a new manager however that would all depend on Harry’s court case on whether or not he is convicted although a conviction could even spell the end for him at Tottenham. It’s due to these 2 possibilities that many feel the end is near on Harry’s reign at Spurs although nobody can question the job he has done since he took over at the club.
Is the lack of spending in January when we were really in a strong position to cement our place in the top 4 a sign? Any money spent could have been recouped in CL revenue next season and just one major signing could have all but guaranteed us that. If we had signed nobody then I would have maybe thought that Harry was happy with his squad but he has promised us only signings that would improve the squad if real quality became available. I am sorry but I don’t see Ryan Nelsen and Saha has improvement in fact I see that as a backward step.
Could the lack of financial backing be a sign that money is being put aside for a new manager to take over in the summer? Jose Mourinho has been named as a possible successor but he wouldn’t join if there was no money to spend. Maybe Harry has been told to do some deals on the cheap, if they know something we don’t it. Either that or the club doesn’t have any money, or even worse….. They actually think Nelsen and Saha are top quality players.Follow @TrfficTottenham
