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.
