Tottenham Hotspur fans rage at Daniel Levy on Twitter, others defend chairman

Daniel Levy

Have Tottenham Hotspur missed a big opportunity?

Tottenham Hotspur did not sign a single player on transfer deadline day, their last chance to add to their squad mid-season.

Their only addition over the transfer window was teenager Shilow Tracey from non-league Ebbsfleet, who is not expected to have any first team involvement.

Spurs were believed to be in the hint for a striker, but rumoured moves for West Brom's Saido Berahino or Fulham's Moussa Dembele were not pulled off, with the club settling for what they have.

And that is a top quality team, who are in the top four in the Premier League at present, just five points off first place, with a five point gap over fifth position.

Yet their failure to add a new forward increases pressure on star man Harry Kane, and the prospect of the striker getting injured is unthinkable.

There was also no reinforcement at centre-back despite Jan Vertonghen's MCL injury, which will keep him out for several weeks. Defenders Federico Fazio and Milos Veljkovic were loaned and sold.

What is unclear is whether a failure to sign players is down to a reluctance to spend, a lack of funds, botched negotiations, or being unable to identify the right additions.

Fans have reacted to the club's lack of activity, with chairman Daniel Levy taking the blame...

Others were more generous towards Levy, suggesting he deserves respect, for helping the club's financial success, and the current stability on the field.
