Press conferences with Mauricio Pochettino have become farcical since the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Media is only interested in talking about Man Utd links and nothing else. Trying its best to unsettle the club in order to create the news themselves. Disgraceful.
Been quiet here recently because Spurs have been disappointing since beating Everton comprehensively at Wembley.
Two away draws and two miserable performances have somewhat panicked the Spurs faithful as they witness once again our rivals splash the cash around for new players.
And though Pochettino did remark that no new players would be coming in during January window, he has changed his tune just before the deadline closes on Jan 31st.
It seems Lucas Moura is close to signing from PSG and Spurs might be offloading Fernando Llorente!
Strangely enough, it appears that Chelsea are still keen on signing the Spanish striker but if we do sell, where is our cover for Harry Kane?
Is there enough time to bring in cover for Kane if we do sell Llorente? And who are these “quality players” that Pochettino is talking about getting on deadline day.
It is perhaps infuriating that chairman Daniel Levy continues to play his games of brinkmanship when negotiating with clubs over transfers. Will there be any good news when the deadline closes. Don’t hold your breath.
To compound matters, Spurs have a massive two weeks ahead of them, beginning with Man Utd (with Alexis Sanchez in tow) at Wembley on deadline day! After that comes big games in succession – Liverpool at Anfield (where Spurs have a poor record) and then Newport County (to preserve our FA Cup hopes) and the Arse at Wembley, before we head to Turin for the first leg of our Champions League Round of 16 match against Juve.
Will Spurs bring in ‘quality’ in time to get the most of this crucial two weeks, which may make or break our season? We shall see …
