Let’s start calling us ‘Harry Hotspur’ – might as well, because Spurs are becoming a one man team

Okay, you probably disagree.  But here’s the rub. What happens if Harry Kane is injured for half the season or more, or hits a terrible run of games without scoring?

What then?  Where’s Plan B?  There isn’t one.

So, you might agree with Harry Redknapp that Spurs have the best starting X1 in the Premier League.

That will be tested this season with the big guns in this country firing some heavily shots in the transfer market.  While Mauricio Pochettino seems happy with his lot.

Spurs certainly are we’ll organised by a manager who believes in the ‘work ethic’ which makes the team hard to beat, which you couldn’t have said that down the years of under-achievement.

However since the sale of Gareth Bale, the team doesn’t have a marquee player, someone who can win a game on their own, but they do now have Harry Kane.

But there is no back-up, no-one to share the goal load if Kane cannot for whatever reason; injury or lack of form. Dele Alli will chip in with a few – if Spurs can keep him.

Where are the other goals going to come from? Hard to tell.

My latest rant has caused some friction in the ranks of Spurs supporters.

Pessimistic by nature, Spurs fans might see where I am coming from by suggesting it could be a just above mid-table finish, instead of the push for the title as most might be expecting after finishing second.

Regrettably the dynamics of the modern game is that money talks, and at the moment Spurs are very much silent. And far too frugal.

    Really? So you did not notice how many goals Son scored when Kane was injured last season?

    You did not notice that Dele scored 18 and Son 14 in the PL?

    You did not notice that Dele and Son scored more than 20 each across competitions?

    This is pretty lazy journalism, with no facts at all.

    We need a couple of good quality signings but what you have written here is poor to say the least. Make an effort. Do some homework before you write an article.

      Spot on. Article is utter nonsense. Yes he is getting all the headlines and scoring a lot of goals, but we had the best defensive record in the league and the other ten have to get the ball up to him.

    In recent seasons the two manchester teams have not been at the races,but normal service is about to be resumed,plus chelsea. That leaves forth place to fight for between arsenal spurs liverpool and everton. Thats where spurs are at. Not title contenders-yet. Toke bexhill.

    Typical lazy journalism to achieve clickbait.

    I’d be delighted if we got Foyth, Meyer, Simeone, and Barkley just to wipe the smiles off all the naysayers’ faces, and to hear their new arguments for why Spurs are still going to finish mid-table.

    Of course, we might not do so well this season, but that’s the beauty of sport – not knowing whats going to happen, the anticipation and the exhilaration when things do click. Christ, even if we do finish mid-table but play great football I’ll be happy(-ish).

      Actually mid-table wouldnt be a disaster look what chelsea achieved .not qualifying for Europe. Spurs are a great team but they never seem to get that piece of luck that is necasary to win things. Lady luck plays a part in everything. I think next year will be their year. You dont invest 850 mil for nothing.
      Good luck. Toke..
