Transfer don't just happen overnight, even a quick transfer has had previous groundwork done, from testing the waters to see if something is feasible to more detailed discussions that agree a deal in principle should the right circumstances arise.
Every club has a shortlist of players that they work on for months. Just as we have a list for each position and know in what order we would prefer them, so does every other club and so does every player. Just because a player is high on our list and we do everything we can to make a deal happen, if the player is waiting on another club and another opportunity then signing him isn't usually going to happen.
That, despite what our idiotic element say, is not Daniel Levy's fault, there isn't anyone to blame as there isn't anything wrong, it's how football works. It is common sens if you stop and think about it, it speaks volumes about those who don't.
Our transfer strategy is clear and has been stated, we want players who will fit into the happy and positive environment within the squad, who are hungry and thus have the right mentality, players that understand what and agree with what Pochettino is trying to achieve and who buy into his methods as well as fitting our style . We publicly stated we were after hungry players, they naturally had to understand the managers philosophy and have to fit into the Pochettino style of play.
Victor Wanyama obviously does having played it at Southampton and Vincent Janssen was saying no to PSG and making it plain he wanted Tottenham and nobody else. We added a third goalkeeper we hope will develop into a future number one, which has seen Luke McGee go out on loan. We have signed a player we feel is an exciting winger and shown great faith in him by allowing Nacer Chadli and Alex Pritchard to leave with Clinton Njie going out on loan.
People should have calmed down now and if you loo at who the opposition have bought there isn't anything there that says they have massively improved their squads as was being suggested.
The international break is now in the way and we have to wait for the Premier League to start again. Big Sam is managing England which leaves many with even less interest in the England team than before, making these international breaks even more intolerable. We need to return to the former method and not have two games thrown together creating too long a break.
