It’s second time lucky for the Telegraph‘s Matt Law, who last summer lifted bad ITK from Spurs Community and told us that Levy was going to sanction a £150million splurge on players. Keen eyed readers will recall that not a penny piece was spent.

Mr Law is now giving us a diluted version of the same tale. This time there’s £100million ‘blow out on the cards’.

Er… that’s £64million.

So… Christian Eriksen’s replacement is going to cost a mere £36million?

Well I guess that’s quite extravagant compared to the money to the money that appears to be put aside to replace Moussa Dembele – which is zero.

By my reckoning the club need to drop £200million just to stand still – just to make the squad whole again.

If Eriksen and Alderweireld split – on top of Dembele – hesitantly applying £100million to the wound – isn’t going to be enough.

As a footnote, can we PLEASE stop being fed this dreadful line about Levy ‘assuring us’ that the stadium debt won’t effect transfer spending.

Right now, a nuclear war wouldn’t effect our spending.
