Getting to know YOUR Premier League club before the start of the season - Spurs

Published on 10 August 2023 at 17:00

Tottenham Hotspur are looking to get back on track with a new start following an eventful but disappointing 2022/23 season.

Who's in charge?

Once again Tottenham were looking for a new manager following a serial winner leaves, Jose' Mourinho leaves and Nuno Espirito Santo comes in. Antonio Conte leaves and Ange Postecoglou comes in looking to kick start 'The Lilywhites' once again.

Ange Postecoglou is a coach with a distinct philosophy and playing approach. His teams are renowned for their intense press and commitment to playing offensive football.

Within that framework, pushing the ball out from the back and the speed at which the players distribute the ball are heavily emphasised. However, one of the most modern and complex aspects of Ange's tactical approach is the use of inverted full-backs.

In's and Out's


James Maddison - Leicester City, £45 Million

Pedro Porro - Sporting CP, £40 Million

Micky Van De Ven - Wolfsburg, £40 Million

Dejan Kulusveski - Juventus, £30 Million

Guglielmo Vicario - FC Empoli, £20 Million

Alejo Veliz - Rosario Central, £15 Million

Manor Solomon - Shakhtar, Free transfer


Harry Winks - Leicester City, £12 Million

Lucas Moura - Sao Paulo, Free Transfer

Spurs' standout player

I think the standout player will depend on if Kane leaves or if he stays, I'm going to view it as he's staying due to what is being reported at the time of writing this.

The player that will standout this year is James Maddison. Yes I understand he was a stand out player at his former club but I just feel he struggled at the end of his time due to it becoming a toxic place to be because of the relegations. With a fresh start with Spurs he will be able to express himself a lot more and with a prolific front free of Son, Kane and Kulusveski he will play such a big part in Tottenham's future success.

Will it be a successful or unsuccessful season for Spurs?

Overall I do think it will be a successful season for Spurs' standards. I believe just a European place and maybe a mini cup run will be amazing for this Spurs side, who're low on confidence after last season. From this I believe the Australian manager will kick on from there but will he be the one to bring trophies to Tottenham, who knows?
