I came close to abducting Mila Kunis

Everyone fully recovered from the exhausting bore that was propaganda transfer day sponsored by Sky Sports and fuelled by the inevitable soon to be broken dreams masquerading as hope? Of course you have. We all allow ourselves to be seduced. A one night stand that resembles an orgy, considering how many people tune it to then be f**ked over.

Beast Bale out

I'll spare you any detailed analysis of last nights performance on account of it not being that much of a performance. A continuation of sorts from the Leeds cup match. No cohesiveness from the back-line into central midfield and further onto the final third of the pitch. Fluidity has been lacklustre. Sure, we're missing Sandro immensely. The intensity he offers allows for so much more structure than we currently have. Parker is either not back to 100% match fitness (understandably considering his injury lay-off) or he's lost a little bite due to his age and the general burn out he suffered and lost time.

Waiting for that monolith to drop

Excited? Just another day to get through and transfer deadline day is upon us. Norwich away to get through first. Defoe fit and ready (thanks to an injection). Holtby in the squad - so cue ridiculously high expectations for him to morph into a hybrid of Modric and van der Vaart with countless assists and goals. Or else the Tottenham Facebook army will run havoc and chaos with disdain. All AVB's fault is the mantra if you've already forgotten it.

Pace, creativity, clever feet

Lewis Holtby in early. Makes me wonder if this has happened because of injuries to other players (Sandro out, Dembele always fitting to be fight) and a lack of true CM depth in the creative category (considering the deal was originally done for the summer). No doubt, everyone is going to go loopy with expectations once he dons a Lilywhite shirt. We've all been banging on about the lack of a player with subtle touch and disguised genius, so welcome to the Lane Lewis and get assisting please. In your own time mate.

A shot in the dark

Tottenham are going to bid for a player, probably, possibly quite soon (soon equating to the next three and a half weeks). The bid, once made, will be official and you'll have heard about it here first, making this article an exclusive.

Yes, another day, another non-event of nothingness. I actually wish I didn't have to write this. Mainly because if there is something that's more unoriginal than transfer headline attention seeking it's an article taking the p*ss out of transfer headline attention seeking. But alas, I have very little to work with currently mainly because Harry Redknapp has yet to carpet bomb the tabloids with explosive soundbites leading up to the game of the century (QPR v Tottenham).

So what about that nothingness?

Will it stop spinning?

January is four days old and Tottenham have already signed two players. I'm half expecting this to be an inception. Is the spinning top still spinning? No? I'm actually awake? Yes, I'm awake. I know I'm awake because we've not yet signed a world class striker or an attacking midfield for the classic 'number 10' role. Or a right-winger. Proper dream within a dream within a dream stuff.

That's not to say I won't be sleeping like a baby this evening. Levy-economics kick-starting what will hopefully be a productive January window. Although based on the announcements of Zeki Fryers and Lewis Holtby, we are future-proofing rather than present day consolidating.
