    Glass half empty?
    That bench, except for Gollini and Rodon, have all been seen to be passable as back up over the last 2 months. Winks, Bergwijn are playing their best football for 18 months. Sess is fit and getting involved, even Doherty wasn't 'not good enough' as a wing-back when played there.

    Can it be improved? Yes, but having shifted the deadwood of Dele, GLC, Ndombele we are in a solid position with an improved potential depth of squad in that we have bought in 2 players and only lost Gil from the actual contributing playing squad and freed up bench space perhaps for Harvey White or another Academy player so perhaps stopping us losing so many of them due to no route to first team football).

    Another signing would have been great. But we are in better shape than 48 hours ago.

    Did Paratici sign these 2 new players to save face in a last ditch to sign someone?
    Incoming Kulusevski and Bentacur will hopfully add more than Dele and Ndombele who were both contributing little when they played.Ndombele who had skills kept running out of steam and Deli had completely lost his confidence and was making mistakes and just could not get it together.
    I think Jose didn't really help him. Sad to see Deli go..I would not have sold him I would have played him in a different position!
    Anyway no real superstars as of yet!!it appears we have to to wait yet again to have any chance to see a Spurs Team that can really challenge for great things. Great things? "whats this guy ..some kind of joker?" Maybe..BUT its 1961 since we last won the League and from my point of view its a bit of a disgrace really as a spurs fan who loves this club.

    The players look quite good but not too sure if they are world beaters?
    I hope he is working with Conte as well.

    If the players are not there it’s not worth spending the money

    squad isn’t good enough, I agree.

    but filling it up with rubbish again isn’t the way to fix it

    The key first is making room for those players
    Getting rid of the dross or those who don’t want to be here makes the squad better

    Hence why I said along the lines of the 2 we signed who are deemed good enough.
    If the players aren't available that's fair enough, just feel we're short at the moment.

    I'm not disputing that it all makes sense, all I'm saying is looking at the squad as of now our bench options are lacking.

    im hoping its more like a Viera situation. Good players stuck on the bench at a top team. Just need a new start.

    We also Have Sarr coming in the summer as well.

    Same as most teams in our position
    And we have the best manager out of the chasing pack by some way
    And the team next week is actually gonna include 2 new signings and also son and Romero (he played 2 games under Conte)…

    We do indeed have the best manager.
    I would say West Ham and United have better on the bench possibly.
    Anyway we know the summer is the main window, hopefully Conte can get us CL football with what's at his disposal.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Sarr is loaned again

    West Ham have one striker in their squad…. their fans are fuming at the lack of depth they have
    United have a squad but right now, yet again, they have other issues

    I'm actually ok with this. The Jan window is a reactionary one where you hare fixing squad deficiencies and setting yourself up for the final push. Transfers are a gamble, best solution is someone already familiar with the league. Next best solution is to go for someone that you already know really well.

    Decent enough window for me.

    surprised they didn’t look at buying Haller, he’s been a goal machine for Ajax

    Go on. Give Defoe a 6-month contract. Just for old time sake.

    tickle my balls with a feather, said it before but Jan is not the best time to buy really big players. We have got rid of the rubbish and brought in two who look promising.
