Make fun? He said she was fine. Seems like a legitimate compliment to me.

re: Tottenham Hotspur 2013/14 Season Long Thread


Do we lack a play maker in the middle? Is that the reason for the lack of goals? Seems we handle the midfield pretty well but when we move to the forward third we seem to be missing something. Our only consistent attack comes from the wings and while that isn't bad we seem to lack imagination in the middle whether our runs are mistimed or we have no one to create offense to put pressure on the defense. Maybe it's just me but that seems to be a pretty glaring weakness right now. Maybe some time to gel will help but once we get out of this weak part of the schedule we will need to score more.

Our defense seems solid but our competition hasn't been that great so I guess we will see.

What has been your impressions thus far?

I figured that we would need a couple games to really gel due to all the new faces we've brought in. I personally thought we were spoiled w/ Parker bc he did a real good job of setting people up and keeping everything in the middle flowing smoothly.

Use this next game vs Dinamo to really just practice working an attack from the middle for 90 minutes. We need everyone to be clicking when we play the Gooners this Sunday

I definitely think we lack a creative playmaker in through the middle. Wingers can only create so much with crosses and runs to the inside. If we found a solid central playmaker to help play in the final 3rd before the deadline I think that would see the most improvement in our scoring.

This is where you recognize an obvious troll attempt and do not respond.

I'm sorry but WHAT?!?!?! Was I the only one that couldn't stand Parker last season? Sure, he kept things moving, but he kept them moving sideways and backwards. I'm not sure he attempted 10 forward passes into the final third all season.

The rumors of who we are going after are starting to pile up.

Lamela - supposedly almost a done deal.

Ericsson - I don't know how hard we are really going after him, but it would be a good signing.

Hulk - I hope this rumor isn't true. I've never understood what is so great about him.

Juan Mata - this rumor is beyond dumb. Of course I would love to get him, but I have no idea why Chelsea would want to sell him.

Completely agree with you. Tom Carroll and even Huddlestone were much more effective.

This. 2 seasons ago, Parker was much better. But last year he just went full-on retard.

Not really a Spurs supporter, but I love the additions of Paulinho and Soldado. Makes me want to pull for y'all... BUT I am most interested in where Halilovic ends up. Dude is going to be greatness. Just know, from an outside perspective, y'all's front office acquisitions are something to take notice of. I'm still looking for my BPL squad to pull for though...

That being said, I've never really been a fan of the underarmour deal through 2017

I think they have done a great job so far. I was skeptical, but I absolutely love the whites this year.

I think Soldado is going to end up being a great addition if they can find someone that can get him the ball. So far they haven't been able to break down the back lines. With a little more creativity there Soldado could be very good.

I guess the glimmer of optimism with the move would be the fact that AVB is already familiar with Hulk and knows better than most managers how to get him going. You can't deny Hulk has some talent, it's just about how he uses that talent.

I LOVE what Under Armour have done for Spurs. Completely unique kits in the Premier League. We don't have to worry about templates, and they've been pretty conservative thus far. I'm still anxious to see this year's 3rd kit though.
