I can’t help but feel that spurs are missing out on a massive opportunity to cement 4th place in the Premier League with their lack of transfer activity this month.
As we know we are currently competing for a Champions League spot with 3 or 4 other clubs. AVB has done great so far in getting the team into this position.
But I genuinely feel that we could give ourselves a massive advantage in gaining a top 4 spot by improving the squad this transfer window.
It’s fairly obvious to most of us that we require more options up front. Lewis Holtby will be a useful addition to the squad from what I have heard from fellow football fans. The fact that Daniel Levy appears to have stuttered over paying a few £100k for him is disgraceful, in my opinion, as he could have brought the quality to our team to have unlocked a stubborn QPR defence. Those two points dropped at Loftus Road could be the difference between Champions League and Europa league football for us next season. That would mean an estimated £30 million in revenue lost all because he was too tight to pay a small fee earlier on in the transfer window.
Now that the Holtby deal is done, if we can go and get a half decent striker to improve our options up front I believe that will put us in good stead for the remainder of the season.
Without an addition to our front line, I believe that we will be taking too big a risk and may result in us losing out on a top four spot which would, consequently, jeopardise our chances of signing big players in the summer.
Daniel Levy is no mug. He will know all this already. Let’s hope he puts his hand in his pocket before it’s too late.
