    • I think it's fair to say we all pretty much agree on THud. He could become the lynch pin for us as the holding midfielder, his distribution and accuracy of passing is getting better and better.

    • Formation dancing! Good for nothing and they'll come to nothing.

      huddleston

      modric jenas

      bentley dos santos/lennon

      bent

      this would be my formation if berba goes, wich i dnt want to see. iv always liked bent though and as a lone striker for charlton, a team seriously lacking premiership quality and imigination, he scored bagsful even when injured in the season! would be great for him to prove people wrong and break into england squad! This formation would allow attacking players but with the holding role from huddleston who, in my opinion, makes spurs play well!

    • wuld be lovely revenge on robbie keane by finishin 4th instead of liverpool, to make it sweeter, i wuld love to see us finishin above arsenal, 3-5-2 that my formation!

    • A 4-5-1 system might be the system we play, but I think JR might opt for a 3-5-2 system, with 3 centre backs and 2 wing backs.

      Here we go!

      Gomes

      Woodgate - King - Dawson

      Bentley - Jenas - Modric - Huddleston - Bale

      Dos Santos - Bent


      Or, if Burgertop stays then him up front with Bent, pushing Dos Santos into an attacking midfield role and replacing Huddleston. Modric and Jenas would then sit.

      Anyway, the players we've bought have given us a LOT of versatility in play! Should be an interesting season ... Spurs for Champions League spot next year in place of Liverpool :-) Sorry Robbie K !

    • I think we will see a very versatile 4-5-1 similar to how man u play with 3 attacking midfielders behind bent or a new striker (if we buy one!)

      GOMES

      HUTTON WOODGATE KING/DAWSON BALE

      HUDDS


      BENTLEY MODRIC SANTOS/LENNON

      BENT

      i THINK WE WILL SEE THE LIKES OF MODRIC/JENAS/LENNON AND SANTOS MOVING AROUND ALOT IN TERMS OF POSITION, WITH ALL THE MIDFIELD ATTACKERS WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO STARTS

    • i meant to add that i think ramos will have jenas in midfield , i would rather huddlestone, and then there is lennon ,zokora , gilberto , gunther and assou-ekotto to add in tho the list of players ,

      • According to Graham Roberts ( on Sky Sports yesterday ) he predicted that this would be our line up against Boro.

        4-5-1 formation.....

        Goal - Gomes

        RB - Hutton CB - Woodgate CB - King LB - Bale

        Modric

        RM - Bentley CM - Jenas CM - Dos Santos LM - Bostock

        Forward - Bent

        Personally, I prefer a 4-4-2 formation as I do not see Darren Bent getting many goals in a lone striking role, whereas I think it would be better if he had a striking partnership with say Dos Santos or Arshavin.

        So my idea of a formation against Boro would look something like this...

        4-4-2 formation

        Goal - Gomes

        RB - Hutton CB - Woodgate CB - King LB - Bale

        RM - Bentley CM - Jenas CM - Modric LM - Bostock

        Forward - Bent Forward - Dos Santos
