They've put the wrong glass in this transfer window.
I can't see a thing.

.When we are bad we are merely tedious: when we are good we are brilliant. The 4th goal against Everton was everything you would want from a Spurs side and rounded off a good performance all round.
Carry on like this and we won't want to leave Wembley. Son's fifth successive home goal (Sorry Jermain) unbeaten in 12 at home. After Southampton tougher Premiership and Champions' League to come but not yet.
The Toffees are going through a sticky patch at the moment and the last team they wanted to face was an in form Spurs at Wembley. Sam had some early success at Everton but has stalled lately and he was hoping that Wembley would inspire his team.
No such luck. Everton failed to get a shot on target, not for the first time recently, and the players weighed down by thoughts of the 'anyone and everything but Sam' in the after match interviews visibly shrunk from the task.
Wayne Rooney's sad attempts to foul and hack when he couldn't perform sums up the level that he and Everton have sunk to. That they were so poor should not distract us from the positives for Spurs from this game.
We throttled them and Dembele gave us a glimpse of his past strengths and our future hopes. Harry Kane broke more records once again doing little but score another couple to reach 20 goals for the fourth season running.
He joins Shearer and Henri on this milestone and replaces Teddy Sherringham as Spurs Premier league top scorer on 98 goals but in far fewer matches. Jimmy Greaves is the next stop on 220 league goals over a nine year period 50 years ago.
Mauricio certainly backs him to do so and given a injury free run it's not out of the question. Hopefully they will all be at Spurs to make him a rare one club man these days at this level.
He also matched Steven Gerrard's six EA Sports awards, but he does not allow this kind of external froth to distract him. His focus is exceptional and his dedication to training proverbial.
However Son was MOM for an exciting non-stop display and eventually all four of our attacking wizards got in on the goals and assists act especially in Eriksen's firm finish following some one touch football by Son and Dele in a move initiated by Harry.
On the ex-Spurs front Gylfi gave Aurier too much space and a free run on the right but it was good to see Aaron Lennon come on to a tremendous reception after his well publicised mental health problems.
3-0 up on the hour one has to wonder why Lamela was ignored until the last five minutes and KWP passed over completely. Wanyama came on for Dier and at least got a decent 20 minute run out.
Liverpool's win against Man.City gave them a boost at our expense. We were rather hoping that City would beat all our rivals and in the long run City are still nailed on for the Premiership title.
Below us with Arsenal and Burnley losing our 5th. position is enhanced. We are 3 points off Chelsea and Liverpool in 3rd/4th. position and 4 points ahead of Arsenal in 6th. Pity about the Liverpool result though.
We are unbeaten at home since the Chelsea game in August; the Wembley hoodoo has slunk away with its tail between its legs; Lamela and Wanyama are back, Toby, Winks and Rose are closer and next up Southampton.
Burnley, once challengers are 10 points behind us and United. and Chelsea with 3 draws in the last five are faltering just a little. All together. ' Always look on the bright side....Somebody's not singing at the back there.
More important though is the step up in performance by Dele, Eriksen and Son. Dier was sound and Jan Vertonghen continues to make Toby's absence less of a problem than it might have been. Aurier and Sanchez played better.
Hot News. (Well luke-warm anyway)
Cameron Carter Vickers is back from loan at Sheffield and Marcus Edwards is going to Norwich for the rest of the season. Co-incidentally (?) we are interested in Norwich's talented young midfielder James Maddison, the new Dele apparently.
The boys are in Barcelona where Mauricio still has connections a house and family for a few days 'breathing space' and to freshen up the training schedule. Any excuse for a jolly though that is not Mauricio's style.
As long as they only sign fans' memorabilia and not Independence petitions by mistake they should all get back safely in time for the weekend.
Half way through the transfer window and nothing stirring.My money is on a couple of youngsters for Mauricio to mold and no big money buys. Musings doesn't do speculation but that would suit us fine.

Lovely stuff. One offside and a mis-hit but when things are going your way they go your way. Lovely drag back by Son in the approach for the second. It doesn't unfortunately show the full build up to the fourth goal.
