Source Close To Mourinho: Gaffer’s patience with striker signing is wearing thin
By Harry Hotspur -

A billion pound stadium and just the one striker on the club’s books – or the old ‘Fur coat and no knickers’ syndrome as it is more commonly known. Hardly surprising then that David Woods from The Sun has gossip from José Mourinho’s camp.

What has added to José’s frustrations is that a huge chunk of Tottenham’s wage bill have been splurged on Gareth Bale, arguably a player that Spurs didn’t desperately need? Add to this, the transfer window closes in a week, and there are still far too many players that the Special One doesn’t need, clogging the books.

Danny Rose, Juan Foyth and most recently Dele Alli all need to be moved on. even if it is on a loan basis, but as yet, there hasn’t been any meaningful speculation about any of them.

The mend and make do routine has to end under Mourinho, or Spurs will for the umpteenth time find themselves unable to compete meaningfully – by which I mean WIN something.

Failing to even sign a makeweight like Callum Wilson will come back to haunt us.

Mourinho can reiterate his point of the need for a striker to Levy yet again after today.

Good possession for a change, was getting really fed up with watching the opposition play all the football. Let’s hope this continues, although I think the Toon are letting us have it as a tactic. Not that it’s working for them very well…

Tottenham’s wage bill is much much smaller than all of the other top six clubs. If this is Levy finally ‘coming good’ as some of the more naive within our fan base are so quick to reason, then bringing in a quality backup striker shouldn’t really be a problem. Should it?

Even if we did and sold nobody, our wage bill would still be about 80m a year below Arsenal’s. That’s the reality.

Levy tells us that we “have no compwehension”… oh yes we do. Comprehension of how small our spend is in relation to what he expects from the team.

The man is either blinkered to the truths or in denial of them. More of the same, 20+ years and counting…

The one striker we haven’t been linked with that I like is Pukki from Norwich, I thought he looked like a natural finisher and has plenty of pace plus prem experience – must be able to prize him away for the right side of £20m

Bale got done because Real couldn’t give him away. Belotti is quality but everybody else we have been linked with is dross. Its looking more and more like Deeney on loan on deadline day.

The sentiment is undoubtedly true H, not that I would give any credence to anything printed in the ‘Currant Bun’ or any of the other tabloid lowlife. Having said that, so far, Levy has delivered an excellent window, beyond what most of us would have expected and for once has acted like a genuine custodian of the interests of this football club. Accordingly, with 8 days to go, there is still time to remedy the glaring defects in our squad, namely second striker and top quality CB, plus shift some deadwood. Thus, I remain hopeful, but wouldn’t bet my house on it!

Jose is a master of the dark arts, and has had this leaked to the Press to put pressure on the gnome. Levy cannot shift players for sale or on loan because he asks unrealistic money. The ongoing striker situation is a farce and has been going on for years. We are reputedly the eighth richest club in the world but we only have one striker. Plus ca change.

Same old same old. Levy just can’t help himself.
