Former Premier League boss Neil Warnock made a blunt assessment of Tottenham Hotspur’s current squad when he spoke to radio station talkSPORT on transfer deadline day.
Warnock implied that if he was still the manager at Crystal Palace with their current squad, there isn’t a player in the current line-up at Selhurst Park that he would swap with a Tottenham counterpart.
Spurs do deserve a little bit of credit because although they failed, they tried to improve their attacking options on the final day of the window with another rejected bid for Baggies forward Saido Berahino.
“I’ve said that if I was still at my old club Palace, there isn’t a player that I’d swap at the moment (compared with Tottenham),” he told talkSPORT.
Has Tottenham’s window been a success?
Tottenham were one of the clubs to do a lot of business up front as they made a number of signings to improve their back four.
There was definite logic in that approach because it was a problematic area for the team last season.
However, the squad still looks good of high threat attacking options despite the arrivals of Clinton Njie and Son Heung-Min.
Fans may have preferred a couple of names more likely to strike fear into the hearts of the club’s opposition, as the club look to get their season back on track with the aim of still being able to break the top four.
