What Do We Need?
Geofspurs sent Vital Spurs the following:
Next season there will be a lot of pressure on the squad due to the amount of competitions Spurs will be competing in and the raised expectations everyone will now have for the team to add to the club's trophy cabinet. I'm assuming, of course, that it's almost impossible to avoid the Champions League next season.
If Spurs were simply competing on one or possibly two fronts it's doubtful that we would NEED to bring any new players to the club...that's how good our squad is and how good our progress has been. But with four competitions to contend with it's pretty obvious that we will need to strengthen the squad to ensure that we don't wilt under the pressure that is bound to confront us.
But what does the squad actually NEED?
Well we seem to have that covered. No other team in the English Premier League has the amount of serious goal scorers as Spurs this season. Kane, Dele, Son, Eriksen, and the odd goal from the rest have seen Spurs scoring with the best of them.
We've got a world class goalkeeper and adequate back-up.
Well the defence speaks for itself. We have the best one in the EPL.
There doesn't seem to be any glaring gaps crying out to be repaired in midfield. We are in the happy position of having several midfielders to select from and each one is more than capable of performing the job they are required to do for the team.... apart, imo, from Sissoko. The fact that we have survived lengthy periods of injuries to key players this season without our results suffering too much speaks volumes.
So what do we need?
A striker would be an asset next season and it would be a huge bonus if Janssen manages to do the job he was brought to the Lane to do. The desire is there, and the attitude is there, so there is still hope for him. Unfortunately he probably will not get many minutes on the park for the rest of this season so it will be difficult for him to prove his worth or add to the goal he scored against Bournemouth. In theory we have one dedicated creative midfielder and, therefore, the addition of another would also benefit the squad. The way we play, however, and our inter-changing movement across the middle of the park offers its own brand of creativity.
So, for me, I would be more than happy with a striker and a creative midfielder (is this position the future for Harry Winks) being added to the squad prior to next August. And I would not be the slightest bit perturbed if Sissoko joined another club at the same time.
Or maybe we can get away with just one addition to the playing staff. Maybe we just need to buy that ONE special player and we could win everything! You know.... that extremely fast 20-year-old player who is creative in midfield, a solid defensive midfielder, a reliable holding midfielder, scores for fun, is technically gifted, is equally as good in both wing-back and both centre-back positions, is right-footed, left-footed, level headed, and makes Lloris look like a novice in goal; a player who will devote his whole career to Tottenham and who will become our clubs greatest legend. You know....an all-rounder!
