When Tottenham reached the Champions League final, that masked how poor they had been domestically that season and it was only our bitter rivals Arsenal collapsing at the end of the Premier League season that enabled us to make the top four. It was quite clear that the lack of transfer activity in the previous four transfer windows had taken its toll and a missed opportunity to refresh and build on what Mauricio Pichettino had created was glaringly obvious.
Right now, at the time of writing this article, we are perfectly placed to jump above Chelsea into third providing we win our games in hand and if there was ever a time to strengthen the squad to capitalise on this opportunity, it is now, in this January transfer window.
But 19 days into the winter transfer window there is no sign of any new acquisitions and there is a huge suspicion that there will be no incomings, certainly not of the calibre of player the squad is desperately crying out for.
You would have thought Levy would have learned his lesson, but it seems he has not.
Tottenham have a world-class stadium and training facilities backed up with an elite manager and two world-class players in Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, the foundations are there but the chairman does not appear to have grasped this.
There is still time in this transfer window for Levy to get his act together but confidence is very low that he will.
Levy is now playing a very dangerous game and if he does fail to strengthen the squad you can take it to the bank that the fans will not be forgiving and it will be Levy that those very same fans will aim their ire at.
It would also bring into question the tenure of Antonio Conte, no proper manager likes to be hobbled when they can realistically achieve something and the Italian would be forgiven for walking away.
