Will Tottenham Hotspur’s Lack of January Signings Ruin Their Season?

Published

Are Tottenham's defence the reason they will not win the Premiership?As money flew all over the place in this years January transfer window, White Hart Lane seemingly missed the crazy boat, but will it come at a cost?

Harry Redknapp’s team have proved so far this season that their squad has strength in depth as well as a decent starting 11, even if their reliance on Gareth Bale is heavier than the world’s fattest man.

South African Steven Pienaar snubbed Chelsea for Spurs but he can only be filling in for when Bale comes back from injury to terrorize once again. Filling in is better than warming the bench at Stamford Bridge in this weather though I guess.

They did try though, rumour of a bid going in for Andy Carroll was rejected at £25 million and as we have seen, the Toon number nine is clearly worth £35 million plus, right? Redknapp and Daniel Levy have clearly not gone completely insane unlike ‘King’ Kenny Dalglish and the American owners at Liverpool.

Athletico Madrid’s Sergio Aguero was also a target at a reported £38.5 million but it seems Tottenham remembered they already have several players in that mould already (Van der Vaart, Modric, Pienaar).

It has also emerged that the Lilywhites were seconds away from signing Blackpool’s Charlie Adam after Liverpool came to the realisation that they had maxed out the owner’s credit card and failed to sign the creative midfielder. Unfortunately it was the white paper and not the green that posed the problem and the deal couldn’t be completed in time.

So as football boasted the recession’s failed attempt at leaving it without money. Records were broke, players became massively over valued (Mr. Carroll) and Roman Abramovich finally had enough of everyone else showing off their riches and threw its wealth back into the pile.

But where does that leave Tottenham? They still have the same strength in depth, even more so with Steven Pienaar adding to an already strong midfield.

As for ruining their season, I don’t think so, with their defence they would be very ambitious to be thinking of winning the league. Remember, they haven’t kept a clean sheet all season in the Premiership.

One other problem they may face comes in the form of a loaded, red and raring to go Merseyside team whose expenditures may see them not only push Spurs out of the top four, but maybe demote them to 6th.

However if you are as delusional as say, Mario Balotelli, you will consider them for the Premiership and the Champions League.

The lack of signings in January won’t ruin Tottenham’s season; their defence will do that all by themselves.
