The last two transfer windows have left Tottenham supporters arguably the most frustrated fans in the Premier League, and there are plenty who could battle it out for that crown.
Andre Villas-Boas, like Harry Redknapp before him has continually insisted that his side remain two or three top class players short of being genuine title contenders, but due to whatever reason nobody has been able to put that theory to the test, as two deadline days have come and gone without the major reinforcements bought in that everyone deems necessary.
A top class striker has been the priority for some time, and Spurs fans have endured reading endless gossip columns claiming every top striker in Europe could be on his way to White Hart Lane, only to watch another transfer window go by leaving fans in frustration.
Spurs fans will hope for better when the summer comes around, and will pray this countdown of the ten Tottenham transfer deals that got away, will end up being nothing more than a distant memory.
