What I would like to see for next season:


----------Kane----------

-Depay---Eriksen---Lamela-

--Bentaleb---Schneiderlin--

-Rose---Vert--Wimmer-Walker-

--------Lloris--------------



---------(New Striker?)----------

-Chadli----Dembele----Townsend-

-----Mason----Stambouli--------

-Davies---Fazio---Dier----Yedlin-

-----------Vorm---------------


And intersperse amongst that the likes of

- Alex Pritchard
- Dele Alli
- Harry Winks
- Joshua Onomah


Of course, that first team seems a bit unlikely, considering the statement Levy recently made indicating that we are probably not going to break the bank this summer and focus on bringing some youth in. I think we should definitely go all out for Schneiderlin, though. He is literally the missing chess piece in Poch's puzzle: a consistent, dynamic, possession recycler who makes driving runs up the field whilst always pressing when the other team has the ball. Depay would be a welcome goalscoring addition to our wings where our current ones have been lacking slightly. Watching the England V Denmark game, Eriksen really thrives off of those passes to speedy wingers who then can cut in or cross to the striker.

Any thoughts on who our new striker should be?
+1
I wouldn't be surprised if we picked up someone like Ings - young, fast, and versatile. I agree, we need a new 1st teamer for CM ala Schneiderlin, but I don't know if we'll see Levy drop the cash for someone of his quality.

But CM, CB, LW and (backup) ST could all use an upgrade.
No way will we get Depay.
We have lots of positions that could do with upgrades but at the same time we won't do all of them this season. The replacements will essentially be decided by who we can sell. If we can sell Ade and/or Soldado then will have to sign someone for up front. I can totally see us splashing 10-15 mil on a young flexible striker if one or both leave. No idea who tho!!

I'm not convinced we will sign someone to play out wide unless Chadli leaves which I doubt will happen this window. We have invested too much into Lamela to cut our losses at this point. Townsend has the home grown benefits needed in European football and Prithchard will be making a claim for significant minutes. The most likely way we are going to sign another wide player is if it's a striker who can also play out wide I reckon.

Central mid is a place where we defo need a signing. Mason and Bentaleb are a good combination and should be even better next season. They still struggled against more experienced pairings and someone with a bit more bite to their game would be needed for certain games. An experienced character with young Sandro like enthusiasm would be great. In truth Stambouli could potentially take that step up next season... I just doubt it will happen. Deli Alli will need someone with more than a couple of seasons of top level footy to learn from as well. I can totally see Paulinho being replaced by a player with a small fee and large wages on a short term contract.

We need someone who can protect out fragile back 4 while the rest of the team is pressing high up the pitch. The way Wanyama did for Poch at South Ham and had been doing brilliantly this season. At the moment Bentaleb is doing that for us while Mason charges up the pitch. Yeah Bentaleb has great distribution from back there but he isn't aggressive enough to hold the fort when our opponents pile on the pressure.

Speaking of the fort that our back 4 built... it's a freaking mess at the moment. Walker and Rose are way too attack minded for our central pairing not to be top notch. Vert is the only one of out options who currently fits that bill. Even he has his horror moments but I blame that on his constant changing of partners. Dier and Fazio are wildly different types of player who force Vert to play very differently during a game when partnered with him.

Dier has heaps of potential but is simply not at that level yet. Next season he will be better but will still be the player opposing coaches will tell their forwards to target. Dier will hopefully be learning a lot from Vert each game but is at least another season from not needing Vert's help on the pitch. Vert will usually play on the big forward when Dier plays and to be honest I don't think that is where Vert is at his best.

Fazio is a purely a specialty player for Poch to use when playing against a long ball team with big forwards like West Ham. When Poch started he would have watched us get beaten by them numerous times in recent memory and identified the need after watching Vert getting rag dolled by some of the big forwards in the league. Unfortunately Fazio's pace and turning circle are a liability against any of the fast forwards of the league (Which is most teams.) When Fazio plays it forces Vert to play as the mobile defender. This is the role where I think he is at his best but the constant swapping between the two roles has clearly been giving him some problems in my opinion.

We need a big strong defender who is great in the air but more mobile than Fazio. Kinda like the way Kaboul used to be when he was world class and injury free for that one season. Poetically enough tho, Kaboul looks to be the player who is going to be replaced and young Wimmer seems to fit all the criteria according to what I have read. I'll judge him when I actually see him play.
Level with Southampton but more than double the number of goals conceded.
It's an area that obviously needs to improve next season if we are to challenge for a top 4 spot. Imagine if we didn't have Lloris! He's made some outstanding saves this season, that number would be far greater if it weren't for him.
fans forgetting me for harry kane :(

Adebayor train harder bro. At your prime, you were really close to Bendtner's level!

Don't be sad. Enjoy the pay packet. :P
For Harry And St. George.

Congrats on one of our own.

So how long till Madrid comes for Harry Kane? lol
+1
A while after they take De Gea back to Spain. :P
+6
Let them come *Ominous Theoden voice*

Yedlin on best Spurs trainer:

Andros is definitely one that’s always staying after [training], no matter whether he’s due to play or not,” he said. “He definitely has a lot of energy as well.”
+1
Abundance of energy from his lack of playing time!

In all seriousness though, I would love for Townsend to fulfill his potential. And wtf has happened to Lamela now? Just dropped because of lack of form or is there an injury? There's no news about him at all anywhere; worrying considering he's our record signing.
+1
I'm slightly worried for Lamela too. I think he has deserved to replace Chadli for a while now
I'm under the impression Lamela is a for sure player for next season and Poch is still trying to decide between Chadli and Townsend.
+1
Hans, our last few matches would suggest otherwise. Lamela hasn't set the world on fire, but he hasn't had an exceptionally woeful game to be as out of favour as he suddenly seems to be.

Paddy, hopefully, he gets a few appearances under his belt by the end of the season. We could do with less uncertainty surrounding our players.
Just had a dream we signed Kramaric. Don't even know anything about him. weird......
+1
As long as you did not have a hard on about it, it's not that weird. :P
+2
+1
Not enough Bale in it. :D
+1
^In his last season for us, it felt like every other goal was a long shot.
@SS All I remember from that season is his goals. And the only goals I remember are all his long shots. So to me it was the season of Gareth Bale 25+ yarders.
Poor Danny Rose, had to pull out of the England squad with hip and hamstring injuries.
+1
Sigh! this was his chance, I don't expect Roy to pick him again any time soon. :(
+1
I disagree Sura, if he keeps performing the way he has been. He fully deserved a call up and will do again I'm sure.
+1
Paddy, I am not saying he didn't deserve it, but look at Roy's picks. He picked a perennially injured Shaw over Rose, who only got a call-up because Shaw pulled out.
Unfortunately, left-backs are unlikely to get as much recognition as an attacking player/goalscorer. So, it might be hard for him to get that call-up again.
Kane may be a starter, with both Sturridge and Lallana having withdrawn.
I would be surprised if Kane didn't start tonight. If that doesn't happen, then friendly against Italy is a dead-cert.
Roy Hodgson has said it is difficult whether to start him tonight or start him next game; as whatever decision he goes for there will always be people who disagree. Personally, I have no qualms with whether he starts tonight or not, there are plenty of reasons for and against whether he should be making his England debut at Wembley. Rooney and Welbeck have been in form for England and I don't believe there is any rush to displace them.

However he has said that Kane will definitely be starting one of the games. Whether it's tonight or next one, only Roy knows.
I recommend you all to watch this Hoddle documentary!
