Tottenham Hotspur 2017/18 - Spurs are on their way to Wembley

    Been waiting all summer for someone that get our thread going...

    Thought it might happen when we made the first of our big marque signings. As no new players have arrived; we've sold our right-back to league rivals who finished below us; and our left-back (plus the Sun newspaper) are doing their level best to scupper the start of the season...it's with great pessimism (even for a Spurs fan) that I'm kicking this off.

    and that's without even mentioning the Wembley curse...

    We're doomed...

    If it wasn't for the temporary move to Wembley, I thought it might have been Spurs year. Shame that.

    Decent start to the season. Never really out of 2nd gear but did enough after Voldemort's indescretion.

    Pleased for KWP getting MoM.

    Signings may be on the way. Chelski next.....

    I'd be interested if anyone can explain to me just what Ross Barkley would add to the team.

    Dembele is the heart and soul of our team. Strong, not afraid to take the ball under pressure, quick to turn and make 10 yards or so, getting the opposition dropping back and putting us in the front foot. Maybe not so many assists or goals, but involved in most of our play going forward.

    He's also 30 with a history of hip problems. Barkley is not exactly the same player (much less solid defensively, hence often played as a no.10) but has some of the same qualities, the ability to carry the ball and turn the opposition. I could easily see him learning the proper midfield position (for Football Manager fans, that's MC rather than DM or AM), and he could easily deputise for either Alli or Eriksen in the support forward roles.

    Good result today. Kyle Walker-Peters earned a headline or two, really confident lad.

    Deputising for Dembele? Two words:

    Harry.
    Winks.

    Completely agree. But a year or 2 from now, a quartet of Dier / Wanyama, Winks / Barkley looks pretty tasty, and the versatility of Dier and Barkley greatly reduces the issues fof getting enough minutes for all or them.
