But who would be an inspired signing and at what price?
I don’t know, I don’t get paid a million a year to develop this strategy.
Spurs have gatecrashed the top clubs by employing a young, hungry manager with an ethos of developing athletic players and implementing a style which is great to watch, effective and all done for a reasonable budget.
Of course Pochettino’s don’t grow on trees but it shouldn’t be beyond the ability of a club like ours with the money we have to try and copy that model and identify managers who could grow/fit into that and sign players accordingly.
At the very least it would be better to watch than what we see now and give the fans something to buy into.
I’ve digressed from the thread title, but no, I don’t think Shaqiri is the answer.
