I might be a bit fickle and overrun with joy at the signing of another brilliant player to our team but suddenly the prospect of another top 4 finish seems a whole lot more achievable now.
So we have added Van der Vaart to our team who scores goals for fun from midfield but when you consider our midfield consists of Bale, Modric, Huddlestone, Palacios, Lennon, Van der Vaart, Sandro, Jenas, Bentley, and Gio. That is what I am talking about, a squad game, who cares if we didn’t buy another forward with a midfield like that.
If Harry plays 4-5-1 our midfield then we can boast one of the best midfield’s in the Premiership and on our day can beat anyone. We have struggled at times when Modric gets injured, we miss his creativity but with Van Der Vaart we have a player of equal quality.
So forgive me for getting excited but we may lack a 20+ goal a season striker but we have a good defence and an amazing midfield. I suddenly feel a lot more confident of gaining another top 4 finish this season. I had a sense that maybe last year was a one off but I really do see now just how far we have come by attracting the likes of Van der Vaart and Gallas and they actually seem delighted to have been able to join us. So I am confident having a look around our team that we can match what we done last season. The main thing is you need a squad that can cope with multiple competitions and injuries and I am sure we have adequate cover in all areas for another push at the top 4.
Is anyone else now gutted that there’s no Premiership this weekend?Follow @TrfficTottenham
