'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Window Washing...

So there have been numerous articles on here of late that relate to our formation and AVB's rotation policies.

Injuries seem to be the main reason why AVB has mainly stuck to a single formation and avoided too much rotation which has led to many questions regarding his tactical expertise as well as our squad depth. So with the Jan Window approaching and the transfer rumours starting to hit the papers I wanted to see what our fans are hoping to see in the window to continue moving forward under AVB. Which players do we need? what formation is going to be best?

Here are my suggestions and what this will allow us to do in 2013. 1) Joao Moutinho: He has to be priority number 1. Yes we have Sandro who can run all day from box to box, and Scotty to return who is a real general, however, neither of these has the passing skills and composure on the ball that Moutinho possesses. He will also be a AVB soldier to implement AVB's plans on the field having worked together before. 2) Jesus Navas: An attacking winger with goals in him is something we could do with. Lennon is great but I find he lacks a quality finish and crosses are often suspect.

Navas would provide us huge depth in that area and make the right side of Spurs one of the most dangerous in the league. Some will argue that a few more are needed but with some players coming back from injury and these 2 additions, Spurs will enter 2013 with real options to play both 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3 and interchange between them with ease! 4-2-3-1: GK - Lloris DF - Walker, Kaboom, Jan, BAE DM - Parker, Moutinho AM - Lennon, Dembele, Bale STR - Ade Bench: Friedel, Naughton, Caulker, Navas, Defoe, Sandro 4-3-3: GK - Lloris DF - Walker, Kaboom, Jan, BAE DM - Sandro, Dembele, Moutinho A - Navas, Ade, Bale Bench: Friedel, Naughton, Caulker, Lennon, Defoe, Falque

These 2 formats and additional players allow us to start a game with either system and change by the end of the game with a sub or 2 when needed, or simply enter each game with a different option based on the opposition. With everyone fit, this becomes an amazing squad considering I have not even included the likes of Gallas, Dawson, Hudd, Townsend, Dempsey and Siggy. That provides sufficient depth. Anyway that is my 10 cents and I believe with these changes we will start to see the real benefit of having a coach such as AVB take us into 2013 and beyond!
