Stop. Take a breath. Compose yourself. Never has their been a transfer window like it at White Hart Lane. If you’re searching for a key term to characterise the events of the last month or so in North London then ‘upheaval’ would be my only suggestion. Having made around £50 million from the sale of Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart Andre Villas-Boas has wasted no time in stamping his own mark on Spurs. Having already acquired Jan Vertonghen, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Emmanuel Adebayor and Moussa Dembele prior to deadline day the Portuguese tactician pulled off somewhat of a coup bringing Hugo Lloris and Clint Dempsey to the club with minutes to spare on the 31st. A net spend of £2m represents remarkable business from Villas-Boas and Daniel Levy allowing two of their most influential figures to leave and replacing them with a similar calibre of player at a fraction of the cost. Now the gelling process begins. It’s an exciting time to be a Spurs fan!
This week on FFC should the Spurs boo-boys realise the error of their negative ways and did Levy’s brinksmanship ultimately prevail on deadline day?
