Is this a fancier version of the Redknapp era?

    Agreed.

    The concern for me is that we have (and will hopefully have) a lot of players that are very good at taking advantage of space of they get the right service. Son, Moura, Alli, Bale, Kane, Bergwijn.

    Finding them in space, moving the ball quickly and with purpose, sharp accurate passing, that has to come from elsewhere. Kane is quite good at that, but his impact in that regard is limited since he's a striker. Bergwijn shows signs of being better than some of the others, but still early days. I don't think Bale is the solution for that at all.

    Hojbjerg for me is an upgrade in that regard, but not one who will change that on his own. We must get the central midfielders and defenders doing that job. Hopefully Doherty and Reguilon can provide an improvement. Lo Celso and Ndombele have it in them to make the real difference.

    That is a lovely move, shame that Lamela took a swing and missed it, otherwise it was really nice, pinged first time passes AND movement.

    You mean, what a classy dummy from Lamela to fool the Div Divfence?

    Our in-coming transfer strategy this summer is almost completely at odds with what we have done in the last 5 years. The signings this year have been about the here and now which is very similar to our business under Harry 2009 - 2011 ish.
    Probably good to have a blend of both types to be honest.

    Both are excellent and to be fair both can cross too.

    That's actually a great point, Kane is brilliant at passing, crossing, delivering just along the 6 yard box, so hopefully he and Bale can both feed each other.

    With another National Team Captain to add to the squad in Bale, along with Lloris, Kane and Son, plus one of the most successful Managers of all time, surely we can finally win a pot!

    If we get a backup striker and are reasonably lucky with injuries, this is one of those moments, the players need to take it ..

    I sometimes think of when we had Lineker, Gazza, Waddle, Hoddle and an in form Stewart, but never just quite all at the same time, what might have been.

    We're just missing Eriksen at his best now. Time to step up Tanguy!

    People miss that, even the best Spur's sides (especially 80's) should have done more ..

    Are we looking to emulate the Leicester title winning teams tactics?

    Whatever it is we desperately need to improve our defense because Southampton could have been further in front before it all kicked in to gear for us

    You can say what you like about Harry but he does always speak well about us. Unlike that cretin of a son of his.

    Harry's a good man. Given me/us a lot of good memories. You fudging give it to then, Harry. Of course we can win it!

    I think having a bit of luck with injuries (or rather the lack of em) is key, really. If we can keep our squad mostly injury free, we should be able to win something this season.
