A new season is upon us and for the first time in history Tottenham decided to bulk the trend and show why we are known as Spur. There is only 1 HotSpur. We lead we don't follow. Levy refused to pay over the odds for a Championship player who will at best be a squad player if he had joined us. That was the bad news. The good news is the likes of Toby, Dembele and Rose were rumored to be off once the transfer window opened but alas they are still very much around. The exact squad from last season will go about business this season and should definitely go 2 better at the end of the season.
Against Newcastle it won't be easy. Newcastle players have settled their bonus issue and are happy once again. Most of our first team players had a long WC outing and won't be ready to start the season. They will need at least an extra week to regain their sharpness coupled with the fact that Wanyama, Winks, Lamela and Sissoko are all out due to injury. Unless Harry Kane suffers 2 broken legs nothing is going to stop him from starting and scoring tomorrow. That would be another feather in his cap as it will mark the first time he will score a league goal in August.
For the lineup, it will be very tricky. I trust Poch to incorporate a few of the youth players, blend them with fringe players and our WC stars. The lineup I'll be expecting is:
- Dele * Moura
- Walker * Amos
Davis * Jan * Sanchez * Aurier
As much as I'd like to see Toby play I feel Poch will continue to bench him, likewise Rose and Dembele.
Glad the season is back. Come on lads. Give us something to delighted about. COYS!
