You're the manager, what do you do with our current squad in the summer? In the summer just gone it was looking extremely positive. Seven new players all who appeared to have undoubted ability to make up for the gaping whole left by Gareth Bale. Unfortunately, even though we are still there or thereabouts (just) it hasn't quite worked out how many of us had hoped.
There's been no structure continuity or fluidity. Players have struggled and injuries have been at an all time high. I don't agree that their is a 'best 11' however you should have a structure where certain players play most games and aren't moved. Thus hasn't been the case with us, again injuries are partly to blame but this isn't the sole reason.
Paulinho has been a holding mid as well as a number ten. Pick one. Same with Dembele. Eriksen has either been left, the hole or centre. Pick a position. This is evident throughout the team. There is no identity at Tottenham. For me it looks like we are a newly formed international side that still aren't sure whether a player is a centre half or centre forward!
So, what do you do? A possible clear out an start again, try an get our Tottenham back? That's what I'd do. Even if it means selling 5 of our 7 new acquisitions plus others, even though each one for me is high in quality I think we need to sell to start again. We are overcrowded in too many positions an not enough numbers in others.
Sell two or three like Siggy an Chadli to sign one i.e. Lallana. Get a clean squad of high quality who fight. Or the other option is to build on what we already have with one or two changes, hoping we see a more settled side next year. I don't like this. For me the squad is full of cracks. You wouldn't buy a sofa for a floor that needs fixing would you?
So Spurs fans, you're the gaffer, what do you do? COYS!!!
