For those who are not looking for ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ spoilers from the upcoming episodes of the Amazon documentary, look away now.
Amazon Prime Video dropped the next three episodes of the ‘All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur’ documentary late last night and it featured an interesting conversation between Ben Davies, Harry Kane, and Christian Eriksen.
The Welsh left-back brings up the concept of pressured January spending, arguing that teams should be allowed to keep a settled team rather than forcing new signings.
Of course, it was a busy January window for Tottenham this year as they waved goodbye to two players and welcomed two more.
Christian Eriksen was sold to Inter Milan while Danny Rose went to Newcastle United on a short-term loan deal.
Meanwhile, Spurs brought in Gedson Fernandes on an 18-month loan and signed Steven Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven, as well as making Giovani Lo Celso’s loan move permanent.
Later in the conversation between the trio, Ben Davies claimed that January transfers had gone crazy, before Eriksen joked that Kane’s right-foot alone would be worth £200m.
Davies argues (All or Nothing – Episode 5 – 4 minute): “Why is it never enough now, that even come January, teams can’t be settled? Do you know what I mean? There always has to be like… have to sign a new player.”
Christian Eriksen chimes: “That’s how it is now.”
BD: “It is how it is, but when you think about it, it’s gone a bit crazy. It’s like you have to have new players all the time.”
Harry Kane adds: “Yeah, for what reason?”
BD: “Whatever happened to letting a player develop a bit? Look at that 2011 season (graphic on the TV shows 2011 spending of £225m compared to £465.2m in 2018). Imagine how much that £200m is worth now. That was way before like Neymar’s transfer changed the game.”
CE: “That’s Harry’s right foot, £200m mate.”
HK: “Not now with the hammy, mate.”
