How best to describe Tottenham's transfer window...
Following a season where the Lilywhites finished third in the Premier League and secured Champions League football, Mauricio Pochettino was widely expected to bolster his options with a number of summer signings.
And he's done precisely that - to an extent. Victor Wanyama (£11m) and Vincent Janssen (£18.6m) have both completed moves, but there's still a sense that one or two further arrivals were needed.

'Satisfactory' is probably the best word to describe it, then.
But that could all be about to change amidst reports that Tottenham are weighing up moves for three midfielders on transfer deadline day.

Real Madrid's Isco is the first, although Guillem Balague claims a move to White Hart Lane is "out of the question" for the Spaniard.
Max Meyer of Schalke has also been linked with a sensational £38 million transfer, but the story that's most intriguing is one that involves Manchester United.
According to a Daily Mail exclusive, Pochettino is weighing up a move for Morgan Schneiderlin, who he managed at Southampton.
Tottenham have reportedly enquired into the 26-year-old's availability and whilst they've received a somewhat negative response, they're still very much in the hunt to sign him.
It wouldn't come as any great surprise if Schneiderlin was keen on reuiniting with Pochettino, though, considering how little game time he has been afforded under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Since the start of the 2016/17 season, the France international has played just five minutes' worth of football, against Bournemouth on the opening day.
A player of his quality undoubtedly deserves better.
Schneiderlin will feel disappointed about warranting such little game time after vowing to give his all for Mourinho and his United teammates earlier this summer.
He told MUTV: "I'm going to fight for my place every day and will see what is going to be. But, of course, I want to play.
"Like I said, I’m hungrier after last season, it was not the season I expected and I want to prove myself.
"I want to work hard. I don't want to go through that spell again. I want to work hard to be very good this season so, yes, now I just want to play and to enjoy it."
Unfortunately for Schneiderlin, should he be interested in joining Tottenham, Marouane Fellaini's recent long-term injury means he's needed at the Theatre of Dreams now more than ever.
