Time and time again we expect spectacular things to happen on transfer deadline day from a Spurs point of view, for almost 3 years we have been hoping for a striker and each time it never came but this time it could be different.
Having sold off a lot of our squad and with more set to leave before the window slams shut, it would be suicide if Tottenham didn’t indulge in the transfer market. Having watched the first home game of the season on Saturday it was evident that we need to replace Luka, we need someone who can dictate the play and make things happen, if AVB and Levy think Jenas and Livermore are good enough to get us near the top 4 then I am truly worried.
Many names have been linked, Ramirez,Nani,Anderson, Dembele, Isco, M’villa, Moutinho and Willian to come into our midfield, who will it be is anyones guess. There is still the need for another striker, Defoe and Ade will do what they can but a top Premier League club needs more than 2 strikers to succeed.
Friday could be critical, as usual we have dragged out our dealings until the end and just like last year it has pretty much cost us the month of August, our season pretty much starts from September each year, Levy’s policy means that anything we pick up in August is a bonus as it seems more important to save a few quid rather than the team win.
We know Levy wants to fund the stadium but this can’t be done at the cost of selling our players and not replacing them. We have faith that Friday will be special for Spurs fans but at the same time we have fear that another Luis Saha and Ryan Nelsen situation could occur. Please don’t let this happen.
