    Because the technical staff has much better information about a player's fitness levels than people on forums.

    yeah my point is that its not down to poch. i am so interested to understand the internal discussions especially since we have a good shot at champions league, and seem not to want to buy insurance for it.

    We didn't look like brick. We dominated that game and they got a lucky bounce to go ahead and we gifted them the first goal. And Kane didn't turn the game. He scored a pen. He didn't exactly take over and single handedly scored the equalizer. So I stand by what I said.

    speaking mainly for myself, we probably wouldn't understand them anyway, they have so much more information on current players and targets

    looking at our progress over the last 18 months i'd suggest they know what they are doing

    Why wouldn't it be down to Poch? What is the point of bringing in someone on loan that he doesn't want there or has any intention of using?

    I would have signed Austin to be honest (unless he is a total douche- seems like low risk high reward). I like where we are going and love the job both levy and poch are doing. Just a bit baffled why we haven't reinforced in such an obvious area of need. And i think thats what most others who are complaining are saying

    Well thats kind of makes sense... if poch said he doesnt want anyone then we done the right thing....doesnt mean he cant be wrong though

    well its a decision by committee isn't it? levy may have wanted to have zero net spend, mitchell may have thought player attributes were already duplicated etc... even if the coach says it to the press, I wonder sometimes if he is just trying to toe the corporate line these days

    Indeed we don't know; we KNOW the outcome though and the way we join the dots as to what happened can work both ways (i.e. looking at it in a way that no blame can be apportioned to our 'transfer committee' or looking at t and pointing the finger at our 'transfer committee'..)

    Why do you think this, other than a deep distrust of our club and the people running it?

    Or you can read everything that Poch has said about this transfer window, going all the way back to before it opened and think that he was telling the truth and being straight about what he wanted all along.

    You know who I rate? Iheanacho at Emirates Marketing Project. First off I'll make it clear that I can't ever see them wanting to sell him (HG player plus a great prospect).

    However, what happens when Guardiola comes along and they suddenly fill the first team with world beaters? Will he be given a shot at claiming his place in amongst that lot or will he end up on loan somewhere like the Chelsea prospects are, before leaving for somewhere in Europe.

    Much like Sandro at Barcelona, if he's got his eye on the future and see's no chance of breaking through, maybe he will look elsewhere. If so then I would love us to make an offer.

    You don't have to have a mistrust of the organisation to believe that all the employees of the said organisation have to toe the corporate line. That is just how companies work.

    Actually the opposite is true. We've actively being trying to sign strikers for the past two windows so it's pretty clear he does want someone, just not anyone.

    There's nothing wrong with toeing a corporate line, most of us have to do it every day. What I think is a little disingenuous is people assuming that Poch must agree with them over our transfer activity and is secretly fuming.

    In the end, I have said many times I love this manager and what he is building. But being a Spurs fan should come with a health warning. We have plenty of recent experience of getting so near and just missing out on our targets. Some of these occasions have been really hard to take especially when the Gooners have taken our place. There is nothing wrong with fans, like me, who would like to see us push the boat out a bit more to ensure we cross the finish line in a season where everything is up for grabs. So yeah I'm disappointed but I am sure I will get over it, because you never give up on your club. Not looking forward to April though. Sorry for all the metaphors btw.
