Well it seemed to be an uneventful end to what could have promised a lot more in the January Transfer Window as QPR stole the headlines with their extravagant, if not a little desperate, splash out on new recruits.
And one man in particular who was strangely quiet was Tottenham coach Andre-Villas Boas, who opted to do his business early by securing the signatures of promising duo Ezekiel Fryers and Lewis Holtby, spending a paltry amount of £4 million in the process.
And that got us thinking. Why were Spurs so quiet in the window? Could it be a case of simply not being able to attract the top names to White Hart Lane?
Well, with the club sitting comfortably in fourth place in the Premier League, that's an unlikely reason. No, it must be because a manager as tactically astute as Villas-Boas would recognize that all of the top players will be available for a cheaper price in the summer.
