It’s been a very promising year for Tottenham and few Spurs fans can be disgruntled about the way that their current boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has conducted his affairs.
Instead of attempting the usual battle with the big boys for the best available, mature talent on the market, the Tottenham boss has delved a little further and begun to develop a new team of exciting youngsters.
It’s been a wonderfully successful tactic so far with Harry Kane, Eric Dier and the brilliant Dele Alli all getting picked for England this year.
But that is only half of the good work done by the Argentine. He has also to rid of virtually all the dead wood from the Tottenham squad and got decent prices for players like Capoue and Paulinho.
If Tottenham can keep this group together and add a few more then there is absolutely no reason why they can’t have a serious tilt at the top four this season and a title charge next.
