1. Appointing Nuno

2. Pressurising Nuno to play 4-3-3 even though 3-4-3 suits our team better. Made even worse by the fact Paratici must have known that after Nuno, Conte/ Potter were two priority alternatives both of whom play 3 atb.

3. Buying players such as Emerson that suit 4 atb but not 3 atb. Now he has no use; we could have bought a RWB from the summer.

4. Finding money that NEARLY seals big deals such as Lautaro and Diaz. But then immediately forgetting about that cash when considering alternatives that we actually execute.

5. Bidding for players who don't start for their club, such as Kulusevski and Amarabat. This is nearly always a bad idea, unless there's special circumstances.

ENIC OUT! LEVY OUT!
10: Not selling Kane when it was clear that his heart was elsewhere. We will get barely any money for a rebuild when he leaves in the summer.

6 Letting the Vinnie and Bale loans go without covering them whatsoever leaving us an injury away from being totally fucked

7 letting the manager search go on for so long that we had little time for Nuno (bad as he was) to prepare for the start of the season

8 not trying to get Vlahovic last summer when he was more gettable before Juv and others wanted him

The strange u turns in the availability for sale of players dependant on game to game form. This stinks of no plan, and Zero strategic thinking.:Tanganga against City, Bergwijn against Leicester, for sale not for sale. The continued lack of a Centerforward understudy. The damaging negligence in the development of Dane Scarlett, throwing a physically incapable child in against ECL teams when the more physically able Etete was loaned out. I am 100% certain I could run the football side of our club with more coherence than this man. I genuinely believe Paratici has been epically over- promoted.
 
Complaint number 6:

Why are we paying (if Kulu meets obligation conditions) more for Kulu and Bentancur than Juve did originally?
They have flopped at Juve, so surely we should get them at a discounted price?

Imagine if we were able to sell GLC or Ndombele at a greater fee than we bought them!
 
Having a top, TOP manager, OUR manager, Antonio fucking Conte saying shit like this and we do absolutely fucking nothing in this window to make sure we get rid of wage bandits and bring in top quality ASAP....

"I think honestly that in this moment and the last years the level of Tottenham has dropped, it has dropped a lot. Now you have to rebuild. To rebuild you need to have patience and to have patience you need to have time. We have to know the situation.

"The situation is very clear. Then I understand that it’s not simple to accept this situations, especially for the fans. We’re working a lot to try to fight also in the league and stay [up there], but at the moment we’re in the middle. Our situation is this. We’re in the middle, not up and not down, we're in the middle."

I think if we had planned for 3-4-3 since August, we could have built a good team .

The RWB options in transfer market are actually better than RB options.
Absolutely, it wouldn't take too many transfers to build a strong squad for the formation. A better starting WB on both sides, a better backup than Doherty, a strong but creative midfielder (should've been Ndom and/or Nearly Soldso), and another CF.

About 5

Kulusevski at Juventus scored important goals but did not fit into the frame. We see that he has good qualities but at least with us he has not become an important player: maybe by changing the air he can make an important contribution. Ambrabat, on the other hand, I don't know him, honestly it seemed like a flare-up in Verona.

Pal, we could've tried for Vlahovic last summer, he still wouldn't have come to Spurs. Especially with Kane in front of him. And even if we'd let Kane go to City, I firmly believe Dusan would've stayed at Fio. He's never been keen on Spurs and why would he. I've read loads about him and he seems like a guy who really, really values himself as a world class striker, similar to Erling and Mbappe. So if them two aspire to play for City, Real, Liverpool...why would Vlahovic settle for Spurs

Because Florentina would have liked the cash, worst that would have happened is being gazumped but Juv where not reported to be interested in him back then and I have never read him not liking us, he was lower profile back then.

Surely Tottenham is not seen in the ambitions of the players as a super top club but do not forget that you already have the top players in attack: Kane and Son. Your investments must go to other profiles. Your charm is great and not cardboard like PSG and Manchester City (or Manchester United today). The players want to go there because they will have an exaggerated salary. De Gea £ 20 million wouldn't even take it from his grandfather
 
Fiorentina didn't really need the cash then, they preferred to keep a player they knew was gonna score another 20 ish goals for them. And they're only selling him now cause he's asked to join Juve and they feel they owe him after what he's done for the club. Plus yeah, they're now getting top dollar for him, enough to sign a good replacement and they may still get European qualification come end of the season.

But the fact remain, then or now, he would never have signed for Spurs. In his mind, he's a top, top player. And top, top players sign for City, Real, Juve, PSG, Bayern...not Spurs.

I love my club but that's a reality. And we've seen it again with Luiz Dias. We are not A-list. We're B-list. And so we sign B or C-listers, especially cause our chairman is tight as fuck and our DOF is a muppet with no skills
Vlahovic wanted Juventus and Juventus fainted because if they don't reach at least fourth place in the standings with the salary, the whole castle collapses. Of course Juventus are ambitious and want to return to their level, but Tottenham, if Levy opens his wallet, can improve. You have the new stage: now we need the results.
