An Almost Perfect Summer
With the sale of Gareth Bale, 7 players arrived for a total of just over 100 million. From the 7 players only 2 have managed to cement their position in the first team. Namely Eriksen and Chadli. A general clearance sale has seen Paulinho, Holtby, Capoue, Kaboul, Stambouli and Chriches all leave with Soldado to follow sooner than later. Lamela remains the big question mark who will probably have another year to prove his worth.
It’s obvious that Spurs have learnt their lessons from 2013 and have now put things right. It’s been a masterclass in shifting the deadwood. Poch looks to shore up a leaky defence and has brought in the youngsters Wimmer, Trippier & Alderweireld. Youth seems to be the name of Pochettino’s plans with Wimmer getting less first team football compared to Trippier who will be pressing Walker for his position at right back. Alderweireld has premier league experience Coming from Southampton and will be a regular.
So, so far we have done an excellent job in shifting a lot of deadwood and to have shored up a leaky defence. The team still needs some improvement in midfield and in attack. There is only 1 month till the summer window closes and Spurs have been linked up to so many players, one has lost count. So, to make it an almost perfect summer let’s get another 2 players, 1 in the midfield and 1 in attack. This would be the least the fans are expecting.
Those supporters who are impatient will be moaning once again if we don’t make it to the Champion League places. Those who have the virtue of being patient will know that until the stadium is completed Spurs will be the BEST OF THE REST. I personally foresee a golden season in 2020-2021 when we win the Premier League.
So my dear friends let’s look forward to that season.
