Only Spurs can make signing someone like Grealish such a drawn out saga that by the time we sign him fans will have forgotten how ambivalent they originally were about it and will now herald him as the second coming. It's what happens when he appears to be the only signing of the window so far. Very clever by Levy. You just have to hand it to him.
We don't know how many twists and turns they deal with and we don't follow every single bit of news and itk that comes in for other teams dealings.
I mean look at the Jorginho transfer. He was linked with a few clubs. So imagine all their message boards and forums and itks watching every step of it.
I honestly feel like Spurs transfer dealings are really no different to other clubs for the most part. The only difference is between is and the money rich teams who will just spunk out 60 or 70 mil per signing but even then that still can be drawn out (look at Mahrez to city or Sanchez to City).
People on this site seem to act like Spurs cannot make a single transfer happen and we have an awful squad that needs a dramatic overhaul while every other team is perfect and signs their first choice player immediately with no hassle which is just utter nonsense.
Has this window been great for us so far? No. But this window isn't over. Let's wait and see what happens.
