Tottenham fans here in the Tavern are looking towards the January transfer window as a way to bolster their squad. Spurs enjoyed a wonderful start to the season in all competitions, but have let this slip in the Premier League in recent times after 4 sloppy performances has left them 4 points adrift of a Champions League spot.
Lilywhites here in the Tavern felt that there was a sense of inevitability when reports in The Express stated that Manchester United are looking to secure the services of Danny Rose for £50 million. Having suffered an eventful past month with the club, the North London Derby rift still lays fresh in the mind as it looks like becoming the deciding factor in his future.
In a somewhat unsurprising manner, this is something that would be accepted by Spurs fans here in the Tavern, after taking in the club’s current situation. Our Landlord decided to throw up a poll to allow Tottenham supporters to vote on the £50 million deal, which resulted in a convincing 55% of supporters wanting the deal to go through.
This is leaning more towards the unsurprising side of things, having spent a period out through injury, Spurs went on an inspired run of form without the use of his services, proving that they can be at the top of their game without him, therefore, getting £50 million for his services would fund the January transfer window for Spurs with signings becoming pivotal.
While the recent disagreement between Danny Rose and Mauricio Pochettino spelt potential problems in the camp, last night’s victory against Apoel Nicosia saw Danny Rose unimpressed yet again at his manager, but this time for substituting him without checking on the status of his eye injury.
Will these two ever get on?
With Ben Davies continuing to impress under Pochettino, and the January transfer window approaching, fans clearly feel a replacement in January is the viable option.
Spurs fans, thoughts?
