The problem lies, of course, on the demand side of the equation. No serious player (like the aforementioned Vidal or Ozil or Falcao, or Cavani) in his sane and sober state of mind would agree to join the Hotspur. The supply is there, but there is little demand for TH from the players' side. Exactly the same situation dragged us into the liquidity trap - banks and other financial institutions sat on billions of dollars looking for projects to invest in. The suppy was and is there. What the economy lacked is sufficient market demand and network trust. Nobody serious wants to play for Tottenham, since nobody seriously trusts their Top 4 ambitions. Nobody wants to invest in risky projects (that could speed up growth), since people still haven't recovered the trust in the financial system. Basically, Tottenham is in a liquidity trap ("attracting normal football players" trap) and Daniel Levy is Alan Greenspan.
