“That’s disappointing” – Some Spurs fans vent their frustration at failed striker pursuit

Some Spurs fans on social media are panicking after reports emerged suggesting Tottenham are unlikely to land Olivier Giroud from Chelsea on deadline day.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported today that Chelsea failed in their attempts to secure a replacement for Giroud and so are unlikely to let him leave.

The final nail in the coffin was Frank Lampard’s confirmation that the 33-year-old is going nowhere this month (BBC).

Additionally, a report in Football Insider today revealed that Jose Mourinho has blocked Troy Parrott’s proposed loan move to the Championship as Spurs are uncertain whether they will be able to sign a striker before the close of the transfer window.

With Harry Kane expected to be out until April, it will be a massive blow if the club fails to get in a centre forward before the transfer window shuts.

With just hours left in the transfer window, some Spurs fans were getting extremely concerned that no forward looked close to moving to North London.

Some fans on social media certainly look like they are going to have a meltdown if Levy fails to sign a striker by the end of the day. In fairness, they cannot be blamed as it has been clear that a centre forward was the most urgent requirement this month. Let’s can somehow pull something off today.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. And yet all you luvvies think that Levy is the messiah.Harry will have to come straight back into the team to try for Europe risking further injury.Profit over care for players.Total dis grace.ENIC OUT

  2. We have a very powerful crew of players who can carry the offense. With no strikerv arriving; they just need to find the right combination. Son &/or Lamela &/or Dele can play the middle Gedwijn & Moura, Sessegnon, LoCelso, Fernandes, N’Dombele, Winks and Aurier all capable of contributing offensively. Yes we need a striker to back up Kane but if it doesn’t happen now; it will be far more possible in the summer window. In the meantime, we still have a strong, capable team who will challenge for top 4. The movement of Rose & Eriksen will improve the spirit in the dressing room.
