Must Tottenham really sign players to compete for the league?

This transfer window has been a hurricane of flying pound notes. Money has been flying everywhere as teams energetically and ambitiously reload their barrels for the exchange of fire in the upcoming season. Lips were carved open for in shock when PSG pulled out €220 from their Arabian coffers to snatch Neymar away from the endearing grip of the Camp Nou.

Back to the Premier League, teams are strengthening up as the fierceness of the new season envelopes. The battle for the Premier League sees up to seven teams in the boxing ring hoping to knock each other out. Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and even Everton all have a traditional claim to the title.

It is said money can not get you anything but it can get you the premier league trophy at least. This vindicates why bullion vans are being driven up and down the transfer windows as heavy money transfers are executed. Man City particularly mean business as Guardiola has spent over £200m this summer in a defensive reinvigoration of his squad. Even Arsene Wenger, England’s chief economist has brought out his rarely seen purse and bought Lacazette in club record transfer. Mourinho has brought in Lindelof, Matic and Lukaku spending over £130m. Chelsea have brought in Antonio Rudiger, Babakyako, the mega Morata, all big money moves. Liverpool is not behind the spending pack as it also broke a club record to bring in Mohammed Salah from Roma.

The list is exhaustive as it shows the show the altitude to which clubs see the importance of reinforcement.  After Chelsea slipped from champions to 10th and Leicester from champions to fighting relegation, it is clear it is such an elusive dream to think success is guaranteed in the premier league when you are stale with no significant strengthening and player addition.

In all this spending frenzy, someone is not spending. Tottenham so far has yet to make a notable addition to their squad! This is baffling considering how its rivals have been running down the transfer market with hefty money bags. Tottenham fans watch Pochettino and chairman Lewy with hands gripping their hearts in fear as August 31 fast approaches and the window closes. Even an insider Danny Rose has voiced his resentment urging Tottenham to sign big names and not some fragile budding youngsters he will have to Google before he knows them.

Granted Tottenham finished second last season. But they are not as strong as before as they have let Kyle Walker walk to Man City with no major replacement. They are also moving their home to the demanding Wembley. Thus Tottenham shouldn’t be comfortable sipping coffee indoors while rivals sweat it outside buying players. But the big question is: Must Tottenham really sign players to compete for the league?

On a calmer inspection, you see that they have one of the best and stable squads in England. Harry Kane, Wayama, Dele Alli, Eric Dier are some of the best the league can offer and Tottenham has managed to retain the core of its players ensuring continuity and stability. Lamela is coming back, and it would be rash to write off Sissoko after an impressive preseason. All this shows that Tottenham must not spend big just because their rivals are spending heavily.

Totttenham 9/1 with Bet365 to win the Premier League this season

Actually my previous comment was supposed to have had a no star review,not 3.My error. There has now been a follow up to earlier events.Sport Pesa are refusing to give my original £10 deposit back. They tell me I must deposit more money from another source,then make a withdrawal of all cash back to this new card/source.Well considering what they have already done,ie:refused my original £10 bet placement,and then not allowed me to get my money back,I will not be falling for this con again. As a previous reviewer said,they are crooks.They are new to this business,and want to be up there with the big boys.But if this is the way they treat new customers I do not expect them to be around for too long. I urge all potential new customers to hit them where it hurts,in the pocket.Avoid them.

Opened an account 2 days ago.Just made my first deposit of £10 and placed a £10 football treble.Immediately got a message saying that i was a "restricted customer." Spoke on live chat to "Flavio" who informed that this was a business decision, and that £10 was too large a bet for me to place.He never said an amount,but told me the bet had to be smaller than £10......WHAT!!! - First of all i thought he was joking,then soon realised he wasn't.Informed him that i had never heard anything so ridiculous,and would withdrawal my £10 back to my card,and place the exact same bet with Skybet.........which i have now done.If they came back to me and now offered me 10 free bets to continue with them i would decline.......I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN.
