Here’s one for the non-believers!
So now we know! The Transfer Window for incomings is almost over and the first game of the season is just a matter of hours away. The question now is; was the transfer window really the supreme success we all think it was? Due to the amount of activity we have been involved in, analysing the effect of the window is rather complicated. Okay, it’s not quite over yet, but let’s assume it is.
- There are so many obvious positives?
- We saved some money.
- We can even show a nice profit before the European transfer window is closed.
- We don’t have to waste time training new players to perform the ‘Poch’ way.
- There was no need to raise the salary limit due to any unrealistic demands from a new player who was under the misguided impression that he is worth more than he really is.
- All current squad members will be confident that their position on the field is not threatened by some new player they’ve never heard of and who comes from a place they did not know existed. The Spurs ‘family’ will not be corrupted by outsiders.
- We can have a good laugh at the expense of our rivals as their mega-pound new stars fail to produce the goods whilst our own stars continue to perform their magic and, just like cream, rise to the top of the bottle.
See …. we really do ‘bottle’ it.
How can anyone be unhappy with all those positives?
As far as negatives are concerned it seems really difficult to identify any. I suppose that one negative is that the bench will be a colder place with fewer bums sitting on it after the European TW is completed. The only possible blight on the crop is if Mr Levy destroys all the good work done so far by venturing even further into the market in the twilight hours often described as ‘Levy Time’. And I’m sure we all hope and pray that he doesn’t do that! Apart from that, it’s all good.
And a ‘Newcastle 0-3 Tottenham’ result on Saturday will really set the scene for greater things to happen this season. Don’t ya think?
