Opinion: Latest Spurs result shows desperate need for summer recruitment

Spurs saw their title hopes almost come to an end really as they were seen off 2-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend.

The result, despite seeing a returning Harry Kane get on the scoresheet, was a bitter blow for the club any any lingering hopes of winning the league they might have had left.

Manager Pochettino also saw his frustrations boil over at the final whistle as he confronted Mike Dean, but ultimately it was just a bad day at the office, and once again highlighted the need for Spurs to go out and make some serious investments in the transfer market this summer.

It wasn’t necessarily that Spurs might not have done enough to warrant something from the game, it just appeared that when the time was right for a bit of inspiration of real quality from the bench, it just wasn’t there in the right areas.

The last few windows have seen Spurs not invest in the squad, and while Pochettino is to be commended for his work, he needs backing before some of the bigger and better players within the ranks start to up and leave at the club’s lack of ambition.

A move to the new stadium in the coming months might well open the chequebook in terms of transfers, but it needs to happen, and soon if Spurs are to capitalise on having such a talented first XI like they do at the moment.
