“I can’t believe anyone even agreed to it” – A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans are delighted that the Premier League could be changing the closing date of the transfer window back to the 2nd of September.
It seems the Premier League have accepted that closing the transfer window early on the 9th of August has not worked.
Mauricio Pochettino is one of the managers who is strongly opposed to the early window – as he felt it left his side exposed and there was a lot of uncertainty over some of Spurs’ star players.
The Argentine admitted that the period up until the window closed was the most difficult of his Tottenham career.
Now that the European transfer window is closed Pochettino can refocus his squad.
However, he will hope he never has to deal with a situation like this again.
See the best of the reaction below.
The @PremierLeague are set to scrap their early closure of the summer transfer window and return to the old system of shutting at the same as the rest of Europe. | @TimesSport

So they should ! It was crazy to vote for an early close to our window while everyone else could carry on regardless ! What the hell were they thinking of ? ????

These Spurs fans are thrilled that the window could be changed and can’t believe it was ever voted in.
We tried to do the proper thing in finishing the transfer window – when the season started – hoping the other leagues would follow – But they would never ever follow what we did. If the idea came from them – then that’s okay.

good news –
appreciate the effort, it’s a shame europe didn’t follow along.. why keep the window open after the season starts?

Other Tottenham supporters are annoyed that the rest of Europe did not follow the Premier League’s lead.
I’m sure Levy doesn’t care. Still won’t get to work until the last day anyway.

Finally, a few Spurs fans believe that it will make no difference as Daniel Levy will still leave all of Tottenham’s business till the last day.
