Fanbase needs to chill, Pochettino has it in hand

TRANSFER TALK


Why are so a few fans gnashing their teeth about players potentially leaving the club and clamouring for three or four incomings as a result. You have clown on Twitter moaning we aren't making signings, no doubt the very same people who complain we never make early signings, which we have done.

They complain that we shouldn't do late business, which every other clubs does when they try to buy our players you'll note, but if we don't look like signing someone they moan again. If you sign a player they complain they should have been signed earlier, if you don't sign a player they moan we should have.

Basically some of our fanbase like to moan for any reason, the transfer window is merely to satisfy their lust for new things, it has nothing to do with improving Spurs or doing what is best for the club. If they were a part of the clueless anti-Levy cluster that would explain everything.

People need to trust Mauricio Pochettino, he has shown he knows what he is doing and changing a squad to how you want it to be takes time, not just a couple of windows. Selling everyone at once and bringing in new recruits to replace the rarely works, a few each window and you get a squad in your own image over several years, most managers don't last long enough to see their plans come to fruition in today's must have now world.

Son will not be allowed to leave unless Pochettino decides he has cover or has lined up a replacement to come into the squad. Nacer Chadli has departed for WBA and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou is training with us so is clearly going to be announced before the window closes.

If Tom Carroll and Ryan Mason leave there places will be taken by Josh Onomah and Harry Winks, both who came on on Saturday against Liverpool. Winks impressed in Australia and you can't really suggest that Tom Carroll is a better player, he isn't.

We search for an attacking midfielder at the right price but must remember we challenged for a title last season with the squad we have so it isn't all doom and gloom. We have a young side who have growing and developing to do themselves, something that seems to have been forgotten.

We started last season slowly and this season we are unbeaten while bringing our European Championship player back to fitness. It is a long season, we don't have them totally match fit for for the first game.

An international break and then the season will really get under way.

  1. You make some valid points but make the wrong assumption that new players simply fit in . By clearing off Chadli , bentelab , mason , Njie , yedlin and even son we have left ourselves open to failure through lack of depth . Mason and bentelab in particular will be missed and for me if son were to leave I would completely despair and he is the type of player we need to be signing not selling plus he is settled in and can only get better .

    1. It must be crazy to buy Son at 22m & sell him after 1 season. Then why we valued him so highly in the first place?

  2. Everyone knows "changing a squad to what you want it to be takes time" but it takes even longer if you spend millions on talented players to only have them leave after a season or so.
    It takes even longer if the manager alienates talented players but won't share what those reasons are, that alienates the fan base!
    Pochettino has a habit of upsetting players it seems, a good manager fixes those rifts but it looks like Pochettino would rather ship the players off to other clubs weakening us and strengthening rivals in the process.

    Also, people have valid reasons for disliking or mistrusting Levy. Some are complete bonkers but to dismiss everyone as "clueless anti Levy" shows how far up Levys arse your head is.... when he scratches his throat does it tickle your nose? ;-)

    1. I get the feeling you feel more than a little alienated yourself, how long have you felt this way?��

  3. Early signing allows the player to settle fast

  4. But does he have it in hand though? Or is he losing the dressing room? The end of last and the beginning of this makes me wonder! Players are tired my arse City,United and Chelski don't look to tired! Myself like most people work 40/50 hours a week, i play 5 a side and Sunday league pus I've done 6 Iron Man's this year! I'm not tired! Plus i earn half of Eriksen will get a week in a f**king year! So we have the right to bitch and moan we've earnt that right!

  5. As fans we have the right to complain about our poor dealings in the transfer market as has been proved in recent years. I don't believe he has it in hand as clubs hateam dealing with levy. He would prefer to leave us shirt of players and weaker than to lose face
