Nothing since the season started?! Underwhelming. A bit like Spurs's season so far!

Anyway, not sure about Sissoko - reportedly £30m and I'm not quite sure where he fits in.

Got that Nkoudou fella from Marseille with Njie going the other way. Plus a keeper from Espanyol (again, I'm not sure why - they've sent McGee on loan and then got another loan in for presumably the third keeper spot).

Still, onwards and upwards.

Sissoko is the missing piece. Overrated, lazy, disruptive and has arsenal connections. We've been missing one of those for over a year.

Amazing business by Newcastle. He was dross last year - £30m for him. The Euros must have added £20m to his fee.

Really amazing if you take into account that, according to Phil Neville, he also signed for Everton last night

Some players are simply not relegation scrap players, in many ways that was what Villa and Newcastle found last season.

That being said £30m, just shows what you can get if you don't let them go early. No wonder more business is being done at the last minute, panic buying based on the first couple of results.

You have done some decent business, if it'd been Liverpool he'd have left on a free

Very quiet in here! 3 months with no updates. Great result tonight to end Chelsea's winning streak.

Amazing result. Wasn't able to watch it but sounds like we deserved it, maybe a bit like the home game against City earlier this season?

And guess who just put Eriksen and Alli in his fantasy team! Shame I left Vertonghen on the bench though, my lack of faith is disturbing!

Sure we won't get past Chelsea, but will be very happy with second place. Great result today

Yeah, I guess many will be 'happy' we won't win the title but, c'mon, second place and clear distance from third? I'd have snapped your hand off at the start of the season!

Mind you, it's a shame relegation beckons next year given home games at Wembley...

You think? I'd have thought that most people (other than Chelsea or Arsenal fans) would have much preferred Spurs to win over Chelsea. Last year was a strange one as in most seasons you've have been the neutrals' favourite, but with Leicester doing the impossible you ended up nearly being pantomime villains, but the whole season was such an anomoly!

Does second/ third or fifth/sixth matter? I dont think so. I'm not sure I can be bothered to watch.
