    What is very interesting when you look at Modric, VDV, Bale, Berbatov, Keane, Soldado, etc.

    Players who either spent a short time here, failed or succeeded, never had an original tie to Spurs, yet the club seems to have infected them, years later responding to social media, admitting to following our results still, or the luka interview.

    More details to the 442 stuff here -> https://cartilagefreecaptain.sbnati...-midfielder-luka-modric-regrets-transfer-2012

    For what it's worth, he probably has another good 2-3 years in him

    Still doesn’t score regularly or put in enough slide tackles...

    Indeed... I was merely mocking the threads from ye olde boards which questioned Modric’s lack of goals and assists...

    The passing of the baton already happened when Winks bossed him in the head-to-head

    Yea I think I’d like to give Winks a chance to cement a place in that role, he’s been hampered by injuries this season so far. Although if we move on sissoko (whose played CM this season) for Modric i’d be jubilant, just not sure how much game time you could promise the two?

    Sissy has only cameo-ed in CM because of injuries to Winks, Wanyama, Dembele and Alder (affecting Dier). That sort of pressure on one position is quite unprecedented/unlikely to be repeated.

    Personally I'm delighted with our 4 CMs (Wanyama, Dier, Dembele and Winks), plus Onomah, TOB and Skipp in the pipeline.

    I think Moura has effectively replaced Sissy, and next summer we might bring in a 6th young AM to replace GKN. Personally I wouldn't look for another CM unless there are concerns about Dembele's fitness (which seem to have abated for now) and/or Poch decides Onomah isn't Dembele's heir in waiting (which I still think he is)

    It’s our strongest area as a squad for me.

    I Think Demeble is an interesting question in the summer.

    for me he is the player that makes my pants sticky when on form, he is completely unstoppable and the most underrated player in the league.

    However this season he has been hit and miss, is this down to the injury? is it getting worse?

    If we get a offer in for him I can see us selling.

    Which would then open the door to Modric.

    Dembele on his day is the best CM in the world. No one can touch him, its just he does not hits them heights often.

    Modric will be 33 at the start of next season. And it's been a long time since he's had to cope with the pace of the EPL. It could go all Nicola Berti

    I just did a sex wee.
    With a bench of
    Sanchez
    Dier
    Davies
    Trippier
    Winks learning from Luka
    Lamela
    Moura

    Add a decent second striker and that wins the league and is really good in CL.

    I'd take Luka over Bale.

    I think a 33 year old modric would need a good rotation player (IE both first choice) to play across 50+ games

    Who else in world football can pass so stylishly and accurately with the outside of his boot?
