I have to admit though that it was a good run for the last 5 or so years. Especially the year we lost out to LC, except the last few games that is! I also think this team is only 2 or 3 solid players from being really good again if they can keep the core together.

What does the team need? I’m thinking a backup forward, a rb and a defensive mid or someone that can take care of the back and allow lo celso to play higher up the pitch in a more attacking position. I feel like he’s starting to get annoyed with how deep he’s having to constantly drop.

RB for sure, we haven’t successfully replaced Walker since he left and a backup for Kane. I really thought Ndombele was the answer to the midfield problems but I guess not. We need someone that can break teams down in the final third because that is where we struggle. We’ve played fairly well on Defense since the COVID break, minus the Sheffield game, so I think Jose is figuring that part of the game out right now though, our offense is god aweful.

Yeah solid RB/LB and DM signings would be incredible. Our best years were with Rose and Walker flying down the wings and Wanyama destroying in the middle.

Mourinho basically has said he can’t have Ndombele and Lo Celso on the field together because he has to use winks and sissoko as cover so Lo Celso gets the starts. A solid DM would free them up to play together unless Mourinho continues to banish Ndombele to the shadow realm

I think a solution to the RB/LB problem is already in house.

So from what I have gathered, Mourinho instructs Aurier to get up the field in a more attacking role, while Davies stays back and forms a bit of a defensive back 3 when in possession of the ball.

Why not flip this and put Sessegnon, who is amazing going forward, at LB. Then put Tanganga as a defensive minded RB.
(I realize they can do better than Tanganga at RB, I'm just confused as to why Spurs aren't using Sess as the attacking fullback.)

I agree with Sess attacking on the left, would be fun to see. I had heard that he wasn’t ready to be a full time starter at the beginning of the season but at this point with not much on the line why not see what he can do.

Having Sess play Aurier‘s role on the left is an interesting thought. I really like Tanganga and think he has a future here, but if we want results now we probably need to bring in an experienced player who is not too expensive. Don’t know who that would be though.

One other thing, sessegnon hasn’t been bad but he hasn’t been really good either in his limited opportunities he’s gotten so maybe Jose doesn’t think he’s good enough right now. We don’t have a Davies for the right side that will just do their job either.

I would love to see this in action. Sess and Son would cause serious overloads and both have the pace to make that difficult to defend.

The more I watch Mourinho manage the more I think he likes to know exactly what he is going to get from a player every match. It's the reason Sissoko, Lucas, & Davies have started almost every game that they have been available for selection. Davies is an average but reliable LB. I think the reason Mourinho lets Aurier scream up the right side is because he knows he is a liability defensively anyway. I actually think Davies is the better crosser between the two.

Aurier in the Starting XI just a few days after his brother was murdered.

Genuinely hope he has a good match.

Lamela making it happen in the box. Great moves on his part. I think we played well but I hate it when we play so deep!

re: tOfficial Tottenham Hotspur 2019/20 Season Thread: Going to Europa!!
Nice win. Seems like we are starting to play better than we have in a long time. Sports are so mental.

Anyways. My take on what we need:

RB. Serge has a few good moments here and there but they are widely overshadowed by his absolute frick ups. We can’t really compete with him there.

DM. I love Sissoko buts it’s time to move on and I have been vocal about my view of Winks. We badly need a real star here. I had hoped it would be Ndombele but he is either to lazy or Jose is in an a-hole. Doesn’t matter. He is done here. We need a replacement at the same level as Lo Celso has been.

Backup striker. Ideally this is a younger player that can play some real minutes and also be given consideration as the starter if/when Kane wants to head out. Maybe can play a wing or CF as well so he can log more minutes.

From there I think we have to figure out what to do with all these wingers and CAM types. We have in no particular order the following guys fighting for spots. Sort of seems like a waste at times.

Gedson
Stevie Berg
Son
Dele
Lamala
Lo Celso
Lucas Moura
And potentially Sess

I’d bet we see one of them moved out. Call me crazy but I wouldn’t be shocked if it’s Dele since he can probably get us some nice cash back and we have Lo Celso and Son who have both looked much better in that role.

For the back line. I know Toby is here next year but not sure about year after. We have a 3 man rotation of dier, Toby, Sanchez. Not terrible. Not amazing. Potentially another signing here.

If we can come out of this off season with:

Kane
Son - Lo Celso - Stevie B
Winks- Star CM
Davies-Toby-Dier-New RB
Hugo

Bench:

Lucas M.
Lamala
Gedson
Sissoko
Sanchez
Sess
Tangauga
Skipp
Foyth
Gazaniga
Backup Striker

That’s a pretty good lineup. Alternatively if we don’t move a Dele then this makes sense:

Kane
Son - Dele - Stevie B
Lo Celso - Star CM
Davies - Toby - Sanchez - New RB
Hugo
