still a long long way to go. the title is there for the taking still, however we need a proper CM this window and probably a quality CB who can play out from the back too...get them two players in and we are bang in it. a quality CM to put in with hojbjerg and ndombele/gio would make the world of difference, wed actually be able to get hold of games properly
don't forget another GK because Lloris will join PSG next yearHmm as I have said before its a mixture of both new players will only fix so many problems but under these horrible tactics all players will suffer.
We still need 2 x CB'S , 1 X RB and a Creative midfielder.
4 signings which have to be done this summer if we wish to challenge.
Here's who I would sell throughout this January/Summer
Aurier or Doherty (keep one for depth)
3rd choice Homegrown keeper
a new cb
a new cb
a new rb
a creative midfielder
I feel jan was really the leader and the "intelligent" defender, though Toby was a bit more athletic and had a nice pass on him.We had it with Toby and Jan
Theres nothing sad about Dier being a leader. He's captained his country for fucks sake.I feel jan was really the leader and the "intelligent" defender, though Toby was a bit more athletic and had a nice pass on him.
Jan was the one marshalling the defence, more comfortable on the ball, and pushing up to intercept attacks.
Toby really falls short in terms of leadership unfortunately. Dier is more of a "leader", which is rather sad for a club like ours.
There's general intelligence and authority, which I feel Dier has, but there's specific footballing intelligence in how to lead on the pitch as a CB.Theres nothing sad about Dier being a leader. He's captained his country for fucks sake.
We have Kane, Dier, Son, Lloris, Hojbjerg, Bale and Hart... All leaders, all been captains. Leadership isn't the issue. It's the failure to see out games, get the next goal and control the game. Something Jose needs to work on with the team as a whole.

Dier doesn't know how own task a lot of the time, he tries, but I don't feel he truly organises the back line like Jan used to.
