Not worth it mate.... He won't be here for much longer.
 
I'm sorry. But this guy has failed at Spurs so far.

Let's analyse everything so far.

Transfers :

Romero -> Good deal , Fair enough.
Emerson -> £25m for a guy they now want to get rid of
Gollini -> Spurs don't want him
Gil -> £20m+Lamela for a guy they are trying to loan back from where he came from

So 3/4 signings have been failures or players deemed not good enough/not currently good enough for Spurs.

Then let's go onto to the managerial saga.
First it was Fonseca then randomly at the last minute he pulls out because he didn't think Fonseca was defensive enough? What's that all about? And also isn't the club's DNA an attacking one? Anyway..
Then he wanted to get Gattuso. Why? Mendes/Serie A links(Something we'll come back to later..)
Gattuso was never a good fit and only fan reaction stopped that happening.
Then his next best target Nuno. No one wanted him. Everyone knew it would be doomed (check forum posts etc.) Yet Paratici fully convinced Levy to go for him. He even showed him tactical videos. Only for Paratici to then sack him October.
We got Conte maybe because of Paratici maybe because of Levy but the point is his little project failed what? 3 months...

And finally this window. Probably the worst of the lot.
28 days in - NO INS/NO OUTS. Even Levy/Hitchen would struggle to match that sort of activity.
He spent the first 3 weeks negotiating for Adama Traore. To never actually reach Wolves asking price and then as soon as another club comes in he just sits there and lets it happen.
Then there next target is Diaz. Again they take too long to negotiate , Liverpool get wind and surprise suprise Liverpool can wrap up a deal quickly.

SO what do they do? Now let's go back to this bit Mendes/Serie A links(Something we'll come back to later..)

All our targets now are basically Serie A players. That's all Paratici can do . And not even the best of Serie A players like Romero. Serie A players who can't start for their teams.

In Essecence players offered by their clubs or agents desperate for Spurs to take them, Does that alarm anyone btw? With Traore/Diaz u can tell the selling clubs actually rated their players in this case it seems not.
I'm sure we'll see some More Mendes specials or Serie A links but basically its clear there's been no clear focus and just a scattergun approach this window. The first target being whatever player has suddenly been most recently offered to Paratici.

Look at the outgoings. No one has gone. No one is even that close to going and if Ndombele/Lo Celso go like expected we are downgrading on them .

Ultimately to judge how successful this window is (come back to this on 1st Feb) we need to see how different our first XI is compared to the before the window started. On this current trajectory the first XI will be exactly the same with the signings coming in simply bench or depth players and perhaps not even upgrades on what we have. Serious questions have to be asked on the current trajectory.

Sorry for the really long post. Just very very fustrated with him. If he is as good as many say then he has to show it in these next days but so far bar Romero/Conte he has constantly cocked up every other decision.

It’s a stretch to classify Romero as a success already

Let’s be honest

Not a single one of our summer signings have contributed this season

We’d likely have the same or near enough the same points tally if we’d pulled another summer transfer embargo on ourselves
 
We missed out on Traore because as a Spanish player he preferred to go to Barca. We missed out on Dias because he preferred to go to Liverpool who are well ahead of us at present.
But had we pushed earlier in the month, missing out would be OK. We don't do that though, we come in and slowly negotiate until it comes close to the wire. Then a team thst is willing to actually get their target comes in and beats us. We've done the negotiation, the time wasted but the other club just swoops in


It would be OK if we did that to smaller clubs than us getting some of their good signings but we don't. We act like the small club at the big table rather than a big club. If we have a target, we should identify and pull it off quickly because we know Chelsea or Man United etc can still beat us to the signing.

For example, if we as a club wanted Diaz then we offer Porto a fee early in the window they cannot refuse. Get the clubs bid accepted early. Then we can negotiate hard with the player. If Liverpool then swoop in and take the player, fine, we then atleast have time to move on to target 2 and aggressively to ensure we get them as we missed target 1.

I guarantee we have lost signings because clubs can't be fussed to deal with Levy and negotiate a long drawn out deal when other clubs will just pay up.

I am throughly critical of our lack of transfer Incomings this month and even though Levy is meant not to be dealing personally with the negotiations our strategy is unchanged. I did not think Traore was good enough anyway and know little about Diaz. The lack of signings is enough to criticise the club for but no one can be blamed if a player prefers to go to a stronger club than us.
I have little faith that any final day signings will actually improve the team. I find it hard to believe with no signings that the Thread 'race for the top 4 'still has any postings.

Agree to an extent but he did very well at juve. Do you think he has agreed to come essentially to serve as a distraction for levy - essentially take a few Mill while keeping the fans of levys back for a season, he can bggr off back to Italy in a year while levy hopes to sold the club (snigger)

He seems to have his hands tied by levys standard BS if honest - we are doing what we always do which suggests nothing has really changed - just the focus of our anger.
