Tottenham Hotspur went on a near 18-month transfer draught through last season, not bringing in a single player across the 2018/19 campaign.
Despite this, Spurs still managed to achieve a top-four finish and reach the Champions League final.
However, Daniel Levy and Pochettino finally splashed the cash a bit this summer, bringing in Jack Clarke, Giovani Lo Celso on loan, and Ryan Sessegnon, as well as breaking the club’s transfer record on Tanguy Ndombele.
Unfortunately for Poch, only the latter has been able to have a meaningful impact on the team so far this season.
Jack Clarke is on loan to Leeds United, Giovani Lo Celso picked up an injury on duty for Argentina after making just three substitute appearances for Spurs, and Sessegnon has yet to appear at all in a Lilywhite jersey.
With just three wins from eleven games so far this season, many fans would have been hoping to see Spurs invest in the winter window, but Pochettino’s latest comments seem to hint otherwise.
He said (Alasdair Gold): “I don’t believe so. I believe in the players that we have at Tottenham today. If it’s my decision I will stick with my players. They have the quality. We have great quality to fight for the things we expect to fight.”
Spurs Web Opinion: This would be a huge mistake in my opinion. Tottenham need a right-back, they need a holding midfielder, they need a centre-back or two, and they need a forward. Leaving it until the summer to get all these new players would be poor from Levy and co, especially if it costs the club a top-four spot.
