    Our transfer activity this June has left me think WTF were we doing in previous seasons? It’s great and makes a refreshing change but if only more urgency had been applied in previous seasons.

    I think there are multiple reasons. Firstly, we have cash, so don't need to sell and buy at the same time. Secondly, the market has definitely changed. There are more transfers happening early than Previous years, and I think one reason is the new financial fair play regulations. A lot of clubs need to sell, and many have cash to spend. This wasnt the case during the pandemic.

    Absolutely this.

    We also have a manager and DoF who seem to be in sync. And we have a DoF.

    I also think Conte is a fairly "easy" manager in some ways, as long as you have money. Demanding, knows what he wants, very unhappy if he doesn't get it. But at the same time easy. I don't think he's a manager that needs or wants very specific players to make his system work.

    The list of attributes he wants in different positions/roles makes for a pretty decent list of potential targets I think. And he knows very well what those attributes are.

    I think this is a tremendously exciting acquisition. He has a bit of that “nasty fudger” about him. Romero has it, Lamela has it - that kind of no nonsense wind you up attitude. I love it when our players have that.

    Think I’d class it as a shamelessness.

    That is quite honestly the impression I'd got of him. Kind of mixed feelings on this move whilst acknowledging that he's exactly the type of player we need.

    Honestly don't really enjoy watching him play all that much but my fickle nature will probably be swayed if he starts smashing them in whilst donning our shirt.

    Well said. Exactly my thoughts. He was a fan favourite at both Watford and Everton and all his previous managers speak really highly of him.

    Think his versatility will suit us very well indeed.

    I wanted a beast at No 9 but this is the nearest we are going to get and the ability to cover multiple positions as well as his strength and power in both running and in the air are more than I felt we could expect. Really pleased with this acquisition.

    Happy birthday me!

    Just to add to this, we also have CL and Conte. This makes it much easier to get the players we want. We're a club that (finally!) has financial clout and is probably perceived as here to stay. Some might say that we had CL and performed very well in the Poch years, but back then I don't think we were regarded in the same light. It felt more like a purple patch that we would be hard pressed to maintain. Now it's clear that our rise is going to be sustainable and that makes us a much more attractive proposition.

    We were basically meant to rise and end up where we are today. CL participants

    Poch overachieved and fast tracked that plan. That brought its own problems psychologically and raised demands/expectations when off the field it was hard to support them.

    But hey, we still enjoyed that period (didn't we?). Some of the best Spurs days ever. And besides, all the (extra) money Poch brought in lets be thankful for, it's probably paid for a lot (including some mistakes:))

    We were building a £1bn stadium, then we were out of the Champions League and dealing with covid revenue loss.

    The only other time those three things weren’t true was the summer of 2019, and we acted decisively then too with Ndombele, Lo Celso and Sessegnon.
