Last summer’s revolution under AVB was supposed to lay the foundations for a new era of success at Tottenham.
The sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world record fee gave Spurs the ammunition for an ambitious spending spree in a hope of taking the Premier League by storm.
It never materialised and AVB’s tenure was cut short at the back end of last year. Spurs’ transfer policy has been heavily scrutinised ever since, and many have been left to ponder what might have been.
Could Spurs have spent their money more widely? We certainly think so.
