On the face of it, this was a reasonable transfer window for Spurs, certainly if you like a bargain. First the positives.
We bought players in several of the key positions that needed strengthening, primarily left back and central defence. We also now have a reserve goalkeeper who isn’t in his forties.
Sunday sees the first big test of Mauricio Pochettino’s new look side, as Spurs welcome Liverpool to White Hart Lane. The equivalent fixture last season saw a humiliating 5-0 thrashing, which marked the end of Andre Villas-Boas’ short tenure.
Last weekend’s league win gave us our first glimpse of the style of football Pochettino aspires to. High pressing, quick counter attacks, one touch passing – at times it looked like the players’ movements had been choreographed. The one big caveat? It was only QPR.
