    What's top honors? league title?

    To me, Europa/FA Cup plus top 4 would be significant progression from the past

    League and CL - runners up in both is where we were and is what the big teams are judged on. If Mourinho matches (or exceeds) that whilst delivering domestic trophies too then of course that is progression.

    This for me as well, winning our first trophy ( whichever one it is) will give the players in the dressing room a massive lift and make them want even more. We have added a number of new players and it will take time to settle them into the team but IF we can do that quickly ( and that is not always easy) then a top four place AND a trophy should be possible.

    Winning trophies now is all that matters for the club, we have it all laid on a plate now with ground, training facility and investment. Add the intent with Jose and it has to be trophies and regular finals

    Top 4... If we do it regularly enough, we will get a trophy eventually. Its the additional finance and player appeal that we get and deny other clubs that will count towards a trophy. Where is a statistician when you need one?

    Exactly,, that's why this season is so so important. We almost have to be CL next year.

    Very good work this week.

    I'll reserve overall judgement until after the window shuts though:)

    It's a very good window now = PEH, Doherty, Reguilon, Bale - 4 first team starters that obviously improve the team (they replace Sissoko, Aurier, Davies, Lucas in line up) and greatly improve depth.

    Add a CB and ST to that list and you would arguably have one of the best windows Spurs has ever had (not even mentioning the financials of the deals as well)

    Yes. Two consecutive years out of the Champions League would be a body blow for the club in terms of recruitment, player retention, prestige and financial clout.
    I'm desperate for us to win a trophy though. Winning the Europa League brings Champions League qualification with it, doesn't it?

    Whilst i don't disagree with what's being said, Arsenal were without CL football and still managed to get players in like Aubameyang. I think CL is a big bonus, but not essential, i think wage structure can be a massive factor.

    The squad was in absolute dire need of a rebuild, we were shot at centre half (and still are), had no presence in the centre of midfield, were poor in the fullback positions and had zero cover for when our centre forward was injured/suspended/out of form/needed a rest. The fact that even now, having signed a whopping 10 players we still need at least two more (first choice centre half and rotation option at centre forward) shows how desperate we were for a rebuild.

    Qualifying for the CL through the PL is the measure of how good you are and is a must for this season. Every year we're not in it, the financial gap widens. Like everyone else, a trophy would be nice.

    As i say, better to wait until the end of the window to judge. We are still open in cm AFTER having bought PEH and a need for a striker is nothing new (and might still not happen...)

    Levy putting his balls on the line with these purchases - actually, since he (planned) ditched Poch and got Jose in

    Shiney stadium and training, but what is it all for if the long game doesn't deliver trophies, and make big money to recoup all the investments ?

    We are all praying this will work, it has to - big statement if we let Alli go. It'll only work if Ndombele and Le Celso unleash their potential, and we shore up defense imho
