Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
I find it ironic that Harry has come out and said that the squad needs improving, given what we have spent over the past few seasons. It just goes to show that the continuity allegedly provided by a sporting director just cost money, rather than saved it - as it seems none of the past 3 managers agreed with all the purchases made by Comolli.
Look at this site for the spend comparison - excludes the current season, but gives a fair indication (Apologies for the site, but I was looking for a transfer comparative!)

Jol got two fifths and was lacking a couple of players, now a year or so on, we need a whole new squad and can't compete with Villa, even though we spent £60 million last season.
Gomes - £8m
Bentley - £15m
Modric - £15m
Dos Santos - £5m
Pav - £12m
Corluka - £7m
And we lost:
So a nett possible break even financially (or even in credit) - but do you think the squad is stronger? Or is it just a simple case of each manager likes to stamp their personality on the team?
