In my previous blog post, “Spurs Shopping List”, I outlined a list of transfer targets that I felt were necessary to stregthen our squad and make a concerted challenge for Champions’ League football. So now the window has closed, how did we do?
One of the things that our match against Arsenal demonstrated was the good and bad sides of Gareth Bale. On the positive side he was one of our most dangerous players, even after Adebayor was sent off and the game had swung in Arsenal’s favour, Bale was still causing problems and giving us some small hope of an unlikely comeback. He scored the second goal and if he had just slid the ball across to Defoe when through shortly afterwards we could have got the third goal which would have really tested Arsenal’s nerve.
