Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose urges club to sign big name players

Are they doomed to falling back into the chasing pack? I do see them collecting all three points in a real tough encounter but there will certainly be some shaky patches during the ninety minutes. Subsequently reporting back on time for pre-season with the North Londoners for the first time in two seasons.

If Shaw can overcome these injury problems, he can still easily be one of the best left-backs in the league and he should be given another chance this season to prove that he can be the player that United expected him to be when they bought him in the summer of 2014 from Southampton. While Heung-min Son and Dele Alli both contributed 20+ goals last season to ease the strain when he was out injured, Tottenham are a very different animal when Kane is on the pitch. They are a breeding ground for English stars of the future. Playing well doesn't win you games, scoring goals does.

"In terms of quality, we certainly have the quality, you saw that last season, but again there's no way of getting around it that we have to keep players fit because at the minute the squad is not as big as other squads". There is also zero activity on transfers they will struggle. "Or Dele Alli or Kante". Possibly the worst signing Spurs have made in recent years. Tottenham indicated that they wanted £50 million for each of their full backs when it became clear last season...

While the clubs around them have spent lavishly on improving their squads ahead of the new season, Tottenham are still to make a single addition to the squad that finished second place in the Premier League last season - minus Kyle Walker who has left north London to join Manchester City.

Dwight Gayle, last season's top goalscorer, will miss the opening game which could open the door for Aleksandar Mitrovic to lead the line with Ayoze Perez floating just off him in an advanced midfield role.

Standing still in the transfer market is never a good idea.

"I think if that was to happen now it would be catastrophic for Newcastle, especially on the eve of what is going to be an incredibly tough season for them".

Twenty-two year old Will Hughes arrives from Derby with a big reputation and potential to fulfil, Hughes will be a key part of what is looking like an increasingly risky set of midfielders as Tom Cleverley and Nathaniel Chalobah also join to bolster the ranks.

This frustration in both camps should make this an interesting encounter to see what stage both sides find themselves at as they kick off their 2017/18 campaigns. But the players are calm and the club is calm. Nothing has changed over my perception of him.

A disappointing season for West Ham with their first season at the London Stadium far from being gold medal standard.
