    I think we are

    Buying players be brave but surely not buying any and working with what you have is braver and more unique

    Sadly I think Spurs are be a little too ‘thrifty’ ‘sensible’ and even ‘brave’ as we look very lightweight in midfield.
    We might be able to loan some players from Liverpool;)
    They have an excellent squad due to thier “utter stupidity”!

    Still don’t think they have an excellent squad personally but their the trendy side currently

    Our midfield isn’t lightweight it’s just suffered a lot of injuries and 2 of our first picks aren’t on this tour

    Dembele and Wanyama are injured oh and Sissoko?
    I know where you coming from but I think we are looking very undercooked for the start of a new season AGAIN!

    When did Dembele get injured?
    I’d rather see us play Skipp or Amos rather than buy another squad filler

    Dembele was on the injured list today but “it’s not serious”;)
    He’s meant to be off also?

    with ‘Skipp or Amos’ it looks like you are going get your way:cool:

    I’m happy with that
    Unless we can buy a better player than we have then why buy someone
    Dembele is rumoured to be off but nothing has happened on that
    Not sure why he is on any injured list as he should still be on his “holiday” time after the WC
    Dier will play and we can play Alli and or eriksen there too

    We need a replacement for Dembele and Wanyama. They are both too injury prone!
    Not fare on Skipp or Amos just yet imho. Thier time will come.
    We need to invest in a few of the finished article or we can forget titles.

    I agree with your comments about Wanyama and Dembele but I also think that when would Skipp and Amos get a chance otherwise?

    They won’t develop without games and playing in a settled team is the easiest way to integrate them

    It’s a noble but very high risk strategy to keep going to that well!
    It’s great when it works. But the Dele and Grealish type purchases are vital.
    It now looks like Grealish is off the menu which is a shame.
    I also think we missed a trick with Shaqiri. But I’m guessing Pool blew us out of the water with wages!
    We are caught between a rock and a bolder!

    A couple of proven quality central midfielders are a must and as type very unlikely.

    Let’s se!
    Sitting here today though it feels a little underwhelming and bleak and it’s so hard to see Spurs grabbing silverware in the near future.
    Then I see use struggling to keep our Eriksens and even Sanchez's.

    Quick comparison of their midfield/forward 12 players vs ours.

    Henderson resting/fit
    Milner fit
    Wijnaldum fit
    Keita fit
    Fabinho fit
    Ox injured long term
    Lallana fit
    Shaqiri fit
    Mane fit
    Ham Salad fit
    Firmino fit
    Sturridge fit

    We have:
    Dier resting/fit
    Wanyama injured
    Winks injured/recovering?
    Dembele recovering/off?
    Sissoko injured
    Eriksen fit
    Alli resting/fit
    Lamela fit
    Moura fit
    Son fit - Off after game 1
    Kane - resting/fit
    Llorente fit

    I might have some of those wrong but I think they look in reasonable shape where as we look a bit thin for the first month unless we buy.

    What are the chances of the window ending up with something along the lines of:

    In: De Ligt, [new CM - Ndombele?], Grealish, Martial
    Out: Alderweireld, Dembele, Sissoko, GKN, Llorente, Janssen

    Even though net spend wouldn't be too horrific and we'd be +1 English player, still probably very low chance (though it would improve the balance of the squad a lot). Would be a lot of transfers to get done in 11 days though even if most of the deals will be largely advanced already.

    My hopes for the window are now really just that the TA and MD replacements are good enough that we end up roughly no worse than last season

    They mixed him up with Sissoko. The Mouse is OK

    Poor old Winks.
    I’m just not convinced we will see him back anytime soon which is horrible for Harry.
    I truly don’t think we can hope to complete being continuously under the pump financially.
    Levy is hoping that revenue increases will gallop in and fill the void, not convinced we will be that lucky every year!

    That assessment is based on how many injuries?
