In my previous article I suggested 3 strikers that Tottenham could buy in January to help give them the firepower they need in front of goal. However, it's all very well and good buying a striker but if they don't have a supporting cast good enough to give him a consistent supply of chances, then what's the point?
The Premier League season is heading for a big finale in terms of who will win as the title race is wide open because six or seven teams have the potential to win the league if it all goes their way. Tottenham Hotspur are one of those teams but they have struggled in recent weeks to establish any kind of title winning form after they were defeated 6-0 last weekend by Manchester City who are also very inconsistent at the moment.
Tottenham were the laughing stock of the weekend as a result of their 6-0 drubbing from Manchester City on Sunday, but rather than the players taking the stick it seems to be Andre Villas-Boas who has taken most of it. I don't agree with the abuse the Portuguese coach has received, so here are three players that I think he should drop for the club's next league outing - a home clash with Manchester United.
Tottenham have had a weekend to forget. Their 6-0 defeat at Manchester City will have had fans across north London wincing for hours and the majority are probably taking a bleaker outlook on life as a result. However, Sports Direct News have got some happier, well... news, for the Spurs fans, as they report that the clubs' board are ready to make a move for Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa.
When Gareth Bale was sold to Real Madrid in the summer there was a contingent of the Tottenham fanbase who were starting to sweat in terms of how they replace him. Instead of splashing the whole lot on one player, Andre Villas-Boas decided to spread it across a number of outlets - one of those being Roberto Soldado, who has caused mixed emotions in north London.
Tottenham are having a positive season so far, but there are a few areas that they could improve on, in my opinion. They have started the campaign in a solid fashion, conceding just six league goals, and sit just five points off top spot. But they are struggling at the other end, despite big money signing Roberto Soldado coming into the club in the summer. Andre Villas-Boas' side have scored just nine league goals, more than three times less than Manchester City have scored (28).
Tottenham have had a mixed start to the new Premier League season but have every right to be excited for the rest of it. Here are three things that Spurs have taught us this term so far.
Tottenham spent a huge amount of money in the summer to compensate for losing Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, but it has been one of the players who was already at White Hart Lane that has caught my attention this season.
Ahead of the tonight's Europa League fixtures, here are the top five passers in the competition so far - based on Squawka's number of attempted passes
When you're trying to cut the mustard at Barcelona, on ofthe biggest clubs in the world, it is always going to be extremely difficult. Sergi Roberto's path to glory has been no different, coming through the Barca youth system and progressing his way through the B side. He represented Barcelona B over 100 times before eventually graduating to the senior side, where he has now played 15 times, much to his credit.
Wingers are the players we all turn to for excitement. They should be able to do the impossible at any time and these five have shown that over the years.
