What do you guys think about Simone Zaza? Sassuolo CEO is quoted at saying we have made an offer in the region of £13m for him. . Personally I don't know much about him, from what I've been reading he seems to be rated quite highly in Italy.
As much as it was a terrible game against Villa, it was my first time to watch a match in White Hart* Lane. It was quite an awesome experience walking from the seven sister's station to the stadium and looking for black market tickets (50 pounds for behind the director's seat, season ticket holder). Although there are several people to blame on that match, Vlad was really the worst of the lot. I wasn't as disappointed as the rest of the fans beside me since I was still savoring my first match at WHL. I was probably the last non-staff to leave the stadium and waited at the parking lot for the players. I got autographs from Paulinho, Capoue, Rose, Chadli and HARRY KANE. It was an awful game of hide-and-seek with the security in the parking lot but it was worth it.

COYS!

"If Manchester United qualify for the Champions League as they look likely to, then for the past two seasons it will be the team that finished seventh the season before that broke into the top four. Neither United and Liverpool had to worry about Europa League commitments derailing their Premier League campaign."

Add to that the fact that both those teams' winning runs came in the second half of the season, when real fatigue occurs.

After this season in which Man United have, with a new team and poor players, got themselves into a fantastic chance for 2nd place and not far from a title race; I regret having Europa League (and its crazy travelling and match schedule) for the first time.

We probably would have won the League Cup this season if we hadn't had Fiorentina to virtually knacker our players out. As well as this, I think we would have been where United are now in the league.
I am confident even if we get Europa for next season, but I would be far more excited without Europa next year.

I'm a bit surprised at myself having written that. I'm normally a keen advocate of the Europa as I feel that we need to get into the finals of the Europa before we know we have the ability to get to the knockout phase of the Champions League and match the big teams toe to toe.

I've been saying this for years dude. I couldn't agree more. The damn Europa costs us every single season. The only times Spurs made the top 4 was when Harry didn't have the europa to deal with the first time and then played kids in the europa the second time. Then look at our results in the league after a europa away leg. They are f*****g terrible and it's costs us at least one or two places on the table. I also hate the constant Sunday league games which are result of being the europa.
I could easily argue man utd has always been a second half of the season team under fergie so lack of euro commitments may be a poor excuse.

Additionally it took time and injuries to certain players to find the right system and starting xi. Maybe with more games we would have found this balance earlier in the season.

I could also argue our form is down to the return of carrick from injury. Both 6 game win streaks started right when he came back from a lengthy absense.

I think having the squad depth to play in Europe is key, and not having enough games to utilize the whole squad presents its own unique challenges.

Love the guy's passion! Have a look at that!

On another note, Yannick Bolasie anyone? f**k he's quick and strong. He ripped us apart earlier in the season
+1
Montero did really well against us too. Wouldn't mind signing him, he's more of a winger than anyone we currently have.
I agree SS. There are some great players out there.
is it the players or the manager? aaron lennon seems to be flourishing at everton. lewis holtby the opposite. is it poch's inflexibility as mentioned below, in trying to play a system that he doesnt have the players for or is it a system that inhibits a players natural abilities? lots of questions to be asked and need to be sorted over the summer. personally, the easy answer for me is a mixture of both. so do you support the manager and give him new players? or do you get away from this horrid system of inverted wingers and get a new manager?

poch as our manager and paul mitchell as the new head of recruitment coincides with this supposed new transfer policy, levy, has put in place. young, almost there, players with tons of energy and desire to get bigger contracts will be coming through and we will see some fast paced, desire filled games. sounds great...except for the fact that if we don't get champs league they will be sold. so, for every season, we bring a starlet and dont get champs league we can almost expect a "reset" of the squad. profits for the club without a big risk like lamela, soldado, paulinho etc. easily able to resell if they have a decent season and cost less than $15m. mixed feelings about this. we will see some great players develop, some not so great, but it seems the plan is to "hope" to get there and then hold on to the talent. let's face it, "stars" don't want to play in europa, so our best chance is try to find the diamonds in the rough.

i feel poch will be given at least one more season and he will def get some players of his choosing, but at the end of the day he knew what he was getting himself into with the current squad an will be unable to unload all the unwanted players. he will be under incredible pressure next season not only to mix these players in with his transfers but to show his method works in finishing higher than they do this season.

on a final note...conspiracy theory: don't qualify for europa? could this be the reason for the lack of bite our team displayed earlier? if top 4 is the goal and this is the hindrance then i support the decision to limp out of the running for 5th. if there isn't a top 4 goal for next season then wtf are we doing?

While Pochettino was promoted as great at developing players and strong on fitness, we were also told by Southampton fans that his big negative was his inflexibility. So far I think it's fair to say that he has ticked all those boxes.

How is the optimism ahead of next season? How many players would be desperate to leave? How many are interested in signing for us? What do we need to happen?
+1
Bentaleb needs to be dropped after a performance like that, I'm still reasonably happy with the squad and how we're doing. I thought Villa did well yesterday and deserve a lot of credit! It certainly hi lighted our frailty in defence, Fazio still has a big question mark over his head.

I think Capoue will definitely be desperate to leave, there's a number of players who are in the dark over their futures at club, Paulinho, Dembele etc.

I'm excited about Pritchard coming back for next season, I've been watching some of Brentford recently and have been very impressed with the way he carries the ball and his passing. He's scoring some good goals too.

I'm still unconvinced that this current squad is capable of achieving a top 4 spot, consistency is a big problem at the moment. It's frustrating to watch us play, we're not starting matches well, we're not building pressure. We let Villa off yesterday at certain points in the game, giving away stupid fouls, a couple of really bad touches and bad passing again! just relieved pressure.

My hopes for the summer...

We sign another CF, I'm not a huge fan of doing the 30m thing again anytime soon. Cheap doesn't necessarily mean bad, there's plenty of affordable options out there. But like you said North, hopefully we can convince them to come!

CB, No one's really owned that position this season, I don't even think Poch knows who his best paring is. Benteke must've nearly won every single header for Villa yesterday which isn't good enough at this level. We weren't even switched on to winning the second ball either at times which frustrated me. It's an ugly part of the game but we need someone who's prepared to put their body on line, e.g Vlaar yesterday!

I'd like to believe we've moved forward, however some of these recent performances have just been a boor! I had feeling we'd lose to Villa yesterday, I watched them against QPR and they looked good going forward and that match we played against Burnley was one of the worst matches I've watched in a long time just boring as f**k.

Idealic First and Second team for next season:

-------------------------Lloris---------------------------
-Walker---------Alderweireld----------Verty-----------Rose-
------------------Dembele------Schneiderlin---------------
-Lamela------------------Eriksen-------------Konoplyanka--
--------------------------Kane----------------------------

2nd team:

--------------------------Vorm-----------------------------
Yedlin-----------Chiriches--------Dier---------------Davies
-----------------Mason---------Bentaleb-------------------
-Townsend--------------Pritchard-------------------Chadli
------------------------Ayew-----------------------------

Unrealistic I know...

Alderweireld would cost around £10 million in my opinion. And would be an upgrade in quality compared to Chiriches and Fazio. He plays in the defense with Vertonghen for Belgium, and used to be CB partners with him at Ajax. He has dropped hints that he would like to join us, and I think he'd be a good addition.

Konoplyanka:

Konoplyanka is a free-agent in the summer, is 23, is very skilled and fast and scores goals. Other than Chadli, we don't have another LF, and Nacer is knackered at the moment. Konoplyanka is still young (25) and, when fully Pochettino fit, could be a great buy bargain for us.

A position where we are not thin on numbers, but more in quality is Central Midfield. Mason, Bentaleb and Dembele have the quality to continue developing at our club. I think Stambouli should be sent on loan, Paulinho and Capoue should be sold and Schneiderlin should be brought in. The quality of this guy is unbelievable, and his stamina and prior connection with Pochettino suggests he could be still interested in a move to White Hart Lane. I reckon he could be brought in for around £25 million, but I would suggest that Stambouli/Soldado may go the other way on loan.

Andre Ayew is a player who is another option to consider with Konoplyanka. He is also a free-agent in the summer, is also 25 and has the same number of goals/assists in 2014-15.

If we can convince Verty, Lloris to stay (I think Eriksen wants to stay) and can shift Paulinho, Adebayor, Capoue, Kaboul, Fazio for a combined £25 million, then we have the right to strengthen our squad in areas where it is needed.

Levy should back the manager this summer, as unless we seriously upgrade, we can kiss goodbye to competing with the top teams in the division. We are low in quality and have poor back-up for certain positions. I say a net spend of £30-40 million in the summer isn't too much to ask.

+2
What striker would be best? A big powerful solid one or a little one who has the same style as Defoe. Which do we need more?
We need a striker who is similar to Kane, in effect; and a smaller LF/CF to provide much needed quality on our left. I think we will only get one of the two players.

Martinez, Benteke, Negredo fit the bill (although I doubt the latter will be bought)..
Negredo would be as good as we possibly could get this summer, however according to this he will be a permanent Valencia player:
"On 1 September 2014 Negredo signed a loan deal with an obligatory purchase clause with Valencia, which required the club to purchase his rights at the end of the campaign, for an amount believed to be around €27 million."
inexcusable from both players and manager. Pochettino's in-game decisions and squad selection has been poor so far, and some of our players' recent performances (probably due to fatigue) have been woeful.

But, what do we expect? We're Spurs, and at the end of the season. At the end of a VERY long and VERY strenuous season with our new manager and young team.

With a break from Europa, I think that our team will be at almost full fitness for all of the season, with the help of Poch's intense training regimes! With the addition of a LF, Striker, Defensive Midfielder and Centre Back (only if we can shift £20-25 mill of deadwood), I am confident going into next season

COYS! I'm gonna roll a joint and have a w**k...
