Well what can else I say?
The JimmyG2 Column.
.Spurs Musings obviously. Apologies to all of you that took me at my word and went down the pub and missed the exciting last moments of the Transfer Window. 'Nothing's going to happen' indeed.
But this is after all the blog that's not always wrong so we reserve the right to be a little off beam occasionally. And in our defence I would like to point out that we were wrong by mere seconds, well minutes anyway.
With 3 minutes to go we agreed a deal with Newcastle that gave both sides a couple of hours to sort out the details of the transfer of Moussa Sissoko who had stalled on an offer from Everton.
After all you can never have too many Moussas in the side. Pity we didn't get the other Moussa Dembele from Fulham to really confuse David Pleat.
Add Everton's to the growing list of Chairman who don't pick up the phone when Daniel's name pops up. But the Master of Blinkmanship stared them down and this time the fax machine operated smoothly.
Janssen and Wanyama signed early to fill long standing gaps in our back-up.
Lopez , NKoudu, Sissoko signed late.
Necessary back-up, pace and strengthening of the squad though none of them at first glance immediate first picks.
Potentially the best of these is Sissoko if Mauricio can release the inner French International and the one that played against us last season. Otherwise he is a bit moody (He plays when he wants to)
Oduwah, another winger, is back from Rangers on expiry of his loan.
Sissoko comes highly recommended by Hugo and N'Koudou is another Frenchman. Remember when we used to mock Monsieur Wenger for being stuck in his native land.
Essentially nobody crucial though sad to see Mason go. He and Bentaleb, on loan at Schalke, were the kingpins only two years ago. Injuries sustained in the line of duty put paid to Ryan's chances
N'jie (loan) never really proved himself for good or ill. Nkoudou for Chadli might be an upgrade especially for pace.
Pritchard was a surprise and Ball and Sonupe (winger) have left us too.
More surprisingly Carroll remains and Son too though both strongly rumoured to be going.
So, the Window? How was it for you and Spurs? Of course the old favourites 'settle' and 'gel' (Pharmacists to Royalty) come to the fore and these are always the known unknowns in any transfer.
Importantly no key players or first choices have left and this leaves us with a more settled squad unlike some of our rivals.
The squad has certainly been improved with plenty of upside on several players. Decks have been cleared of clutter but rivals have paid more and bought established talent.
The heat is off Daniel for the time being for a change but he is becoming almost a parody of himself. This time it worked. No net spend zero this time.(edit).
Strong, quick, gets forward well. Bit head down. Welcome to Tottenham. Two Moussas, Dier and Wanyama in midfield. That's seriously strong stuff. Still no higher creative talent in there to change the game.
Eriksen, Lamela, Harry and Deli now have to up their game or 0-0 will become our most common score.
