    For me it’s a left sided, left footed centre back, make do with the midfield, in the vain hope that Ndombele and Lo Celso can combine well.....and a striker.....plus sell Dele, Rose, Lamela and Foyth and bring in Zaha.......

    I think we should have a go with this:

    GK Loris
    RB Doherty
    CB Tanganga
    CB Alderweireld
    LB Reguilon
    DM Sissoko/Winks
    DMHoijberg
    LM Bale
    RM Son
    CAM Ndombele/Bergwijn
    CF Kane

    Just seen the team for today and I know we have a lot of fixtures in the next 2 weeks but Moura first choice again over bergwin.Is there any spurs supporter who thinks this man should be first choice because I for one don’t rate him even though he had a great run last year in the champions league.The last game he gave the ball away More than all the other players.I see Ali does not even make the squad which could be saying something.Even though we have signed some players at last I expect us to win this one or we are really in a nose dive.The full Southampton team was knocked out
    Of the cup by lower league opposition last week which matched our appalling performance in Europe..I am watching to see if the new signings make the rest fight harder because their places are at stake and do the players play for the manager

    The transfer window opening up in a months time. Still uncertainties about incomes due to COVID and therefore uncertainties about spendings/outgoings

    The interesting things for me:
    -will Rose finally get his wished for transfer
    -CBs, Tanganga might benefit from a loan to play more but he might be needed so maybe a loan isn't likely. Sanchez, too expensive for the bench and not showing that he is good enough to play so an interesting conundrum
    -GK, Hart might not be good enough for EPL or EL and Gazzaniga isn't homegrown and might also want to be more than a back-up
    -Winks is needed but might want to go where he gets to play
    -Gedson, terminate his loan?

    Sanchez recent PL form Played 10- W6 - D3 - L1 .

    If Toby and Dier are 1st pick, having Sanchez on bench is ok, if JM wants to replace Sanchez then that's ok as well.
    Dier has given away more pens and some of his passing straight to opposition has been worse than Sanchez.
    The only defeat of the season came with Toby/ dier at the back.
    Sanchez gets a lot of flak that others making the same mistake don't get.

    Sanchez on the bench or sold is ok for me too.

    Not sure if I agree that Sanchez gets more flak than others for similar mistakes. Maybe he does, he does seem to be penalised more by referees and maybe he attracts more criticism as well.
    As is I am not sure what I consider to be the best option for him or the club. A move might get him more playing time, possibly that is what he wants. A move might free up some funds for investment in other areas for the club. Staying and fighting for his place in the team might make him part of a trophy-winning team and that is something both the club and him might want.

    Cb is an area were i think spurs are well covered 3 senior Cbs and two hungrey rookies. The way spurs have set up over last 6 prem games with the Cb's getting loads of protection means they all should be able to come in and do a job like Rodon and gain from the experience.

    If spurs could pick up a Peh/sisoko type player to take the strain off and add comp for sisokos position i would be happy.

    Sess and skipp seem to be having good loans, maybe they will be part of the team next season. Coys

    Yep, we'll see what happens. If there is a need to sell before buying then I think one CB and/or an AM/Winger might be sold. There is a bit of a shortage of players capable of covering for PEH/Sissoko so maybe someone will come in.

    Anyway, as far as I can tell the number of overseas players in the squad appears to be maxed out so if another overseas trained players comes in then one might have to be dropped off. If that were to be the case then selling or loaning out that player might be the best option.

    The areas where I might want to see strengthening are central midfield and possibly right winger. Bale has not yet shown what he can do, hopefully he'll do that. If he does then maybe the right side won't need improvement.

    Of the overseas players who might be missed the least:
    -Lamela, hardly playing due to injuries but unlikely that anyone wants to buy a player as injury-prone as he is therefore I think that he'll stay until he retires.
    -Gazzaniga, not sure if it ever was a good idea to have a second choice keeper taking up an overseas trained spot. Uncertain if there is much interest from other clubs anyway. Maybe Sheffield United....
    -Sanchez, hardly playing. Still young for a CB, might improve a ,still of the players who might be least missed he's the most likely that someone might want.

    Anyone want CE back? I for one don’t fancy corners under knee height again and yet another player strolling around with zero effort, we have plenty enough of those

    I've read a rumour that Lloris might not get a contract extension. If that is true then either he is sold during the summer or leaving on a free after next season.

    My preferred replacement is probably Henderson but Man U might say that the only way Henderson is leaving for a competitor is if they get a good player. Henderson + loads of cash in exchange for Son?

    A cr@p Eriksen is still better than Moura Lamela Bergwijn LoCelso Alli

    Been reading today that we are linked with Rafa Benitez. Nagglesman has also stated an interest in working in London.

    If JM was to leave, do you take a gamble on Nagelsmann or go for Benitez who has experience in PL.

    I personally hope that JM is punted and we give Nagelsmann a crack as he could pull a couple of Leipzig players with him and plays a decent, pressing style....he seems to have a good morale amongst his players too which is something that is missing currently

    No, netiher.
    Benitez is as much of a dinosaur and as negative as Mourinho if not more so.
    Nagelsmann can't pull any players with him as the non-HG quota is filled already. He's still be stuck with some really bad players who hasn't played well for two managers. Maybe a third new manager could be the magic one - 'Third time the charm' - but my take is that the players are too old and will not change their behaviour for more than a few weeks.
    Maybe whoever is in charge of transfer-policy at Leipzig would be a good signing.

    Next season might be better simply due to the re-introduction of the loan-policy which have allowed a couple of Spurs players to develop to the point that the might be ready for serious minutes of premier league action.

    Isn’t Paul Mitchell their head of recruitment?

    Yes he is and Levy drove him out of our club

    You are probably right, I think I've read it somewhere. If so then as they say then it is never possible to come back (it will not be the same, it will be different, either changed for better or for worse) so maybe he and Levy might not have the same relationship and this time their relationship might work. Or not.

    For me then what I see is that a good DM might allow the good attacking players at Spurs to go forward more and a good DM might protect the backline better than what is currently done. It would balance the team.

    I get why there are arguments to get better attacking players, I get why people think it is the manager who keeps the attacking players from attacking and maybe those are the things that needs to change. However, I believe that a good DM is needed anyway, no matter if the manager is changed or if better attacking players are being bought so for me the first thing to do is to get the good DM

    I do believe there might be some sales of non-HG before any non-HG is bought. We will see if there are sales, the contracts extended or if some will be allowed to leave on a free after next season.

    Re Paul Mitchell

    He was head of recruitment at Leipzig, he is now sporting director at Monaco.

    It doesn't matter who is head of recruitment at Spurs while Daniel is incharge because he's the actual head of recruitment and everyone else are just fall guys for his inadequacies and completely flawed strategy.

    Just out of interest watched wales against the Czechs .Gareth bale was average but created the goal with a sublime cross but the real man of the match was Rodon who had a great game.If Mourino does not give him an extended run now then he really will have lost the plot.Just watch him prefer Dier or Sanchez against Newcastle .

    What I’ve never quite understood is why pay big money for players who have no premier league experience. Take Ndombele for example, the amount paid for him would probably have signed Grealish at the same time...now Grealish is worth double. Don’t get me wrong, there are moments when Ndombele looks amazing but I’m not sure he has the impact that Grealish has in games with the same leave of consistency. There are a few players around that would be great additions but we never seem to be interested? Norwich, Brighton, Burnley and WBA for example, all have at least one player in a position that we need who would be a huge upgrade on what we have and has experience of the pace and style of the league. Perhaps the bald one should seek a new approach if he does want to continue to have full responsibility because we could improve a few areas this year
