Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has been taking plenty of flak for his deadline day dealings. Should he explain himself in the same way John Henry did at Liverpool in September?
Mr. Levy, it's good to talk.
And we're sure he does, but rarely are his wishes and dealings conducted in public. Perhaps in this instance it would be useful if he did.
His decision not to sign a striker, and place all his eggs in the long-shot basket which is Leandro Damiao, has already shown signs of backfiring with Jermain Defoe injured. Time will tell how costly it proves to be.
It isn't too dissimilar to the farce which transpired at Liverpool in deadline day in August.
With Andy Carroll packed off on loan to West Ham, the Reds were determined to bag Clint Dempsey, seeing as Fabio Borini was the only back-up to Luis Suarez.
They failed to successfully negotiate the deal, and Dempsey ended up at Tottenham, leaving Liverpool short.
Even with Borini later getting injured, Liverpool have managed to get by without too much damage, but there was considerable anger at the club after deadline day, not too dissimilar to the frustration currently felt by Spurs fans, worried their gamble will cost them a top four place.
Liverpool's owner, John W Henry, took an unprecedented step in addressing the matter. He communicated with the fans.
Some may have cringed at his 'open letter' to supporters, but at least it was a step in the right direction.
It began: "I am as disappointed as anyone connected with Liverpool Football Club that we were unable to add further to our strike force in this summer transfer window, but that was not through any lack of desire or effort on the part of all of those involved."
It tailed off into addressing various individual points and excuses, and you can read it in it's entirity here, but it helped spike some of the anger and frustration being felt in the aftermath of the transfer window.
We are asking if Daniel Levy should do the same at Tottenham?
Sure in doing so, he would be admitting his own failings, but it's never a bad move to open up lines of communication with supporters - and at least shed some light on the reasonings and underlying issues behind Spurs electing not to sign a forward going into the final months of the season.
What do you think? Would an 'open letter' from Levy be a good move?
