You suggested that the fact we have continuity would be an advantage, when generally if you spend money, you improve. There are obvious exceptions, but nearly all teams who keep improving the squad season after season do better than those who rest on their laurels. Squad continuity is only really an issue if you bring in a silly amount of players every window ... and I don't think there is much danger of that. I've previously seen/spoken to other Spurs fans who are convinced we'll have the advantage because unlike other teams we aren't signing many players every window, when really it will likely lead to us being caught up by clubs who want to improve every summer.Who is saying otherwise? No-one that I can see.
I'm not happy with this window because we haven't signed 2-3 players that can really come in and challenge for a spot. We've signed nobody and there is 3 weeks to go. We've only seriously been linked with Grealish who is potential, not somebody who can be expected to come in and start. It's not good enough and it's not what Pochettino asked for at the start of the window, not at all. Feels like we're still where we were always at, spending when we sell, but this is not what the club was saying before the summer.
