1,483 Seamus Colemans: What Spurs could have got instead of £89m quintet

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham on Saturday lunchtime, and one Everton fan had a beauty of a comment.

Last summer, Tottenham Hotspur indulged in a considerable amount of summer shopping...with mixed results.

While Christian Eriksen is widely believed to be one of the signings of the season, the likes of Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Roberto Soldado have split opinions and raised questions over Daniel Levy's spending.

But one Everton fan had a unique way of pointing out just what Tottenham did - and did not - but last summer in the tweet below.

As Tottenham fell to a 2-0 defeat at West Ham United - putting their Europa League hopes in doubt in the process - it was pointed out that the £89million Spurs spent on the quintet of Soldado, Lamela, Chadli, Paulinho and Etienne Capoue could have bought quite a few Seamus Colemans.

Actually, it could have bought 1,483 of them.

The Everton player was signed from Sligo Rovers for just £60,000 back in 2009, and has gone on to become an integral part of the Merseyside club.

Coleman has made 39 appearances for the Toffees this season, as Roberto Martinez's side have had a campaign to remember.  

But that was with just one Coleman.  Imagine what you could do with over a thousand of them...
