As the Luka Modric saga takes yet another twist with the player claiming he has been threatened with reserve team football it is now time for Daniel Levy to be bold once more.  This time in the transfer market.

The Tottenham Chairman insists he does not want to dismantle the current playing squad and is adamant that he will not sell the clubs best players at any cost.  But if Levy genuinely wants to build and maintain a team capable of challenging for top honors then now will become the defining time under his stewardship.  Other clubs like Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool and Chelsea are all investing vast sums of money towards improving their playing squads.  In order to maintain momentum Levy now needs to decide if Spurs are financially capable of doing the same, not just to keep up with the Jones’ but to surpass them.

Such intent in the transfer market is not required as contingency to Modric’s departure but to show the player and all of those around him that together they can achieve their footballing ambitions at Tottenham Hotspur.  The Chairman needs to forget for the moment about reducing the current squad size, fringe players can be offloaded as and when the right offers come in.   I say to Levy that Now is the time to show our ambition by identifying and securing the long-term targets that will take this club to where it wants to be.  Now is the time to be brave, to be bold, to truly define your time with our great football club – to dare is to do!

    I suppose you think he’s sitting in his office all day playing solitaire?

    The current squad size is the main reason for transfer inactivity, it it too large there will not be room in the 25 for the players we already have. You can’t then buy more and then expect clubs to offer you anything for players they know you can’t use and don’t want. Forget about the fringe players? With the likes of Keane , Bentley on about £6m a year in wages between them imagine how much the unwanted players are a drain on the clubs finances? Too simplistic not very well thought out article. If spurs did what you suggest they would have about 40 pros all on massive wages only being able to use 25 and forced to either grant frees to expensively acquired players or loans where they still end up paying a % of their wages. All this would result in is Spurs never being in a position to do anything and lucky not to do a Leeds.

    Unfortunately there is more truth in this article than people care to consider. We need to purchase the players we require and not wait until we have off loaded the so called dead-wood. If we keep hanging on for others to leave first we will not get the team together before the start of the season. We may also miss out on targets as other clubs come in for them first.

    Chelski, Liverpool and Citeh have either bought or made it known who they are looking for. We’ve not made any in roads to the big signings we need. So far we’ve signed a kid and a 40yr old keeper. Where is the world class striker that we need? There has not even been a rumour of a bid being made for one.

    Levy knows what he is doing when it comes to looking after the finances. This does leave us fans frustrated but I would rather be frustrated than bankrupt like rich says.
