AVB continues building fast, powerful squad.

Posted on August 08, 2013 by Tony

The latest player linked to Tottenham is Etienne Capoue a French International who statistically was one of the most impressive performers last season in the entire French first division. If the transfer goes ahead, as is extremely likely at the moment, he will be another six foot plus addition to the squad and another fast,powerful player able to operate in a number of positions.

Paulinho and Chadli are players of similar build but each operate in different ways and are equally adaptable, along with Sandro and Dembele, Tottenham certainly seem to have a group of players capable of mixing it with any team out there and should rarely be outfought or be lacking in pace no matter who the opposition.

The squad is obviously still evolving and gearing itself up for life without Gareth Bale and a few others destined to depart, pace will be a mainstay in the team this coming season with so much more being added, Danny Rose is looking likely to play plenty of games perhaps as first choice unless an expensive new addition is brought in, Andros Townsend can shift with or without the ball, even our new centre forward Soldado is no slouch.

If Capoue does complete his move it is almost certainly going to mean that Parker, Livermore and Huddlestone will be on their way as AVB will still have Tom Carroll, Holtby and Sigurdsson to make up the remainder and alternatives to his midfield engine room.

In the wider areas he will have Aaron Lennon, Andros Townsend and Nacer Chadli to choose from and so it is likely that a fourth specialist will come in and probably one with a good goalscoring record and who specialises in front three system. With so much transfer speculation surrounding Adebayor and even Jermaine Defoe we are likely to see lots more comings and goings before the end of the month, quite how it will affect performance and stability really does remain to be seen.

    We have spent enough, and if Bale stays we are good. But if the spending came because we thought we will cash in on Bale, that will be bad for the future. But hell, we will see CL football this year if he stays! So we recover all the money next year!

      Spurs always had a decent transfer fund for this window and there is an extra £60m in tv money. bale money will be extra as Spurs never intended selling .
