Tottenham have entered the new Premier League season without a single new signing on their books.
They became the first side in the history of the Premier League to go an entire summer window without making any signings.
It makes very little sense that Spurs would choose not to dip into the market, and so it seems that they simply were unable to get any deals over the line.
How badly that could affect their season remains to be seen, but you can’t help but feel that they are already on the back foot in the race for the top four.
Spurs travelled to Newcastle on the opening day where they ground out a hard-fought 1-2 win over the Magpies.
Goals from Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen were enough to seem them over the line as talismanic striker Harry Kane continued his annual August goal-drought.
However, in the week that has followed that game, it seems that Alli’s celebration has garnered more of the headlines than any of the goals themselves.
The Englishman made simple gesture with his hand, covering part of his face and his eye, and that seemingly was that.
Since then though, the celebration has turned into somewhat of a viral sensation with fans realising that it is actually a lot harder to pull off than it seems.
The internet has been awash with failed attempts to nail the celebration including efforts from some of Alli’s teammates.
Now, even manager Mauricio Pochettino has got in on the act after he was asked whether or not he can do it during his pre-Fulham press conference.
Check out his response below.
Brilliant - but you can’t help but feel it is just a load of hot air from Poch.
There a very few people who can claim to have got it spot on at the first time of asking but perhaps the Argentine really is some kind of maverick.
He did, however, prove that he could do it later on, but we still can't be sure he got right first time.
