THFC …. Game On!!
On Saturday Spurs travel to Newcastle to open their season. This is not a match thread as OyVeh would have submitted (he is far better at it than I am. If you are reading and going to do one OyVeh, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org), but rather a thread to take us through week one of the PL. In that respect, the game, before and after, is open for discussion …. as is everything else to do with THFC and the PL in general.
Having said that, I see little point in continuing to complain about what did, or did not, happen during the Transfer Window. The focus now should now be on the Premier League games in front of us although I realise that this will be difficult for some posters who will be in meltdown due to Bale, Modric, Ronaldo, or anyone else, not wearing a shirt with a cockerel on it. But the reality is that the TW is over and it is what it is.
The most interesting thing about this game (as it was for many games last season) is who will be on the team-sheet. Pochettino has already stated that he will not play any of our world cup players unless they are fully fit. None of us know what that means. The other interesting thing as the season progresses is how the manager will utilise Toby in terms of recent events. But if we play a back three, Verts, Toby, and Sanchez make a formidable defence.
As far as Newcastle is concerned I believe we have enough strength, whoever plays, to get a good result. As the season progresses it will be a great asset to the squad to have Winks, Toby, and a more experienced Moura, back in the squad.
So, it’s game on! Over to you VS people.
