A Dry January for Tottenham in the Transfer Market

Although Tottenham have been relatively active in the transfer market since Jose Mourinho took up the reins as manager, this particular window has seen no activity from Spurs. Jose himself had stated that any new signings were highly unlikely, but recent results would suggest that Tottenham are still short in certain areas if they are to be a force where the Premier League title is concerned. In the same way stakes are high at online pokies real money, bringing in new talent in January is always a risk. Availability is one issue, while paying over the odds for substandard talent is another reason to keep January activity to a minimum.

With Harry Kane currently out injured, Spurs have limited options as far as strikers are concerned. This has been a running theme for some time now. Kane is out, a make shift strike force is put into place, or the formation is tweaked until Harry is back to full fitness. The arrival of Carlos Vinicius was meant to give more options and alleviate some of the pressure on Harry Kane. Unfortunately, that hasn’t really come to fruition as yet. To be fair to Vinicius, he has managed six goals in 13 appearances, but it still doesn’t feel like the Brazilian is fully up and running as yet. These goals have either come in the FA Cup or Europa League. It would be great to see Vinicius given some significant Premier League game time and see exactly what he can do.

As there can now be no personnel changes until next summer, it will be interesting to see exactly where Tottenham Hotspur end up this season. Some high roller casinos offer sports betting odds and current prices suggest that finishing outside the top four is more likely than not for Spurs. A campaign ending with Champions League qualification will certainly be viewed as a failure by both the Spurs board and fans alike. While a cup success would buy Mourinho more time, it is a case of whether he himself retains passion and interest to continue in the manager role. Spurs are still in three cup competitions and although it is a stretch to see them winning the Europa League, that would be a backdoor route into elite European football.
