Sorry, two different thoughts in that.

Thought one was I expected Spurs to struggle more last season.

Thought two was that we have a long way to go to get close to Arsenal.

Haha, no worries. I was taken by surprise, but all clear now bud.

I actually agree with you too. Although we were in the conversation a couple of seasons back, our squad and resources were inferior and we were effectively punching above our weight. If we're to seriously challenge for automatic European spots there's quite a leap to be made.

Robber Rodwell


Rondon anyone??  16.5 million pound release clause.  28 years old.  Showed he was a class act after the McCarthy injury.  Powerful player.  Worth a punt at that money surely and could he play with Tosun or too similar?

Doesn’t score goals. I think they’ll struggle to shift him even at that price

Have always been a big Rondon fan. Best hold up outside the top 6.

Think he’d score more in a better system, but we’ve no idea if Marco wants a big number 9 yet.

Wouldn’t hate him as a back up plan, or if the system required a big back-to-goal fella.

Would have saved koeman had he got him start of the year.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Heck no. Brands will look for younger players with potential. We have Tosun and DCL already, add a quality forward and that's plenty enough. Adding a mediocre striker is of no use.

I like Rondon but I think it is more about that incident, and how he comes across as a person, rather than as a player. File under 'Naismith'.

No for me, Brands wants to bring the average age down and sign young energetic ball chasers and I don’t think big Ronnie fits that profile

Really has got me wondering what silva and brands will be after in terms of what we already have. Klaasen, sandro and lookman may all be considered candidates for the starting eleven.

Rondon is a good worker, but far too similar to Tosun. We need a goal scorer with pace and finishing ability - a step up from what we have, not more of the same.

Does silva tend to play the same 4-2-3-1 formation we are used to?

Mostly, but he likes two box-to-box midfielders instead of one plus a defensive mid. Fullbacks also need to attack more than they have done since Martinez left.

I hope not. I'd like to see some tactical flexibility from the pretty rigid shite we've been served up the past four years.
