    Thought i'd start with an ante arsenal joke. Arsene Wenger (He who must not be named) must start to understand that usually one Van cannot carry 10 men.

    Anyway Hi from cold and wet north london. New member to the site. My name is Craig and I have some pretty bold views on how Tottenham should be run :D

    My best XI Would be ( including a few jan signings)

    Friedel
    Walker Cahill Kaboul Assou Ekotto
    Lennon Modric Parker Bale
    Adebayor Tevez


    Gomez, Dawson, Dos Santos, Kranjcar, Van der Vaart, Defoe, Pavluychenko.

    First post and you're already dropping King, Dawson and VDV. Very bold indeed. But welcome.

    Also, you might have already heard this joke but:

    What do you call an Arsenal captain? - A future ManCity substitute.

    Hi thanks for all the welcome messages.

    Yeah I told you guys I'm bold with my views, Ledley King will remain in the hearts of us all An amazing player and captain. If a team is to win the league consistency is vital and riddled with injury King is just very unfortunate. VDV is the best striker of the ball we have at the club, but his lack of pace means that he has games where he is sometimes non existent, perhaps using him as an impact player is more suitable in my opinion.
    Personally I love michael Dawson, however at this current time we are trying to move from a top 4 club to maybe even winning the league and a player who struggles to get international football will only hinder our chances of title success.

    Tevez is a world class footballer his wages will be high, perhaps a slightly unrealistic shout on my behalf. However these talks of bringing in investors to help with the new stadium may encourage player investment. Fingers crossed :D

    I can see where your coming from with King... however I don't like the look of how attacking the bench is... i mean accept for Dawson and Gomes the rest are either attaching mids or strikers... I would definitely include Sandro somewhere there... also there isn't much 'youth' so to speak, i think the older players sometimes need a kick from the younger players to wake up (and visa-versa)

    anyway welcome to the forum and every is entitled to their own opinion, so im not killing yours im just using it to put mine across ;)

    Always like to hear views, you are right about the younger players giving them oldies a kick. The team I have put down is the team I believe would win on a one off title winning game, obviously a squad of larger players would be necessary and Sandro would be number one on the list. He will become a great player especially if he learns off Scott Parker.

    Welcome to the forum. You said you wanted some debate so here it goes... (I apologize if it comes off as mean)

    Your team is pretty crap tbh: Dropping Ledley for Cahill (a player not as good as Kaboul, Samba, Vertonghen, or our other targets) and trying to get Tevez. How? PL rules don't allow us to have two on-loan Manchester City players so we'd have to buy him outright. Meaning we'd have to pay the big transfer fee and the huge wages. Levy wouldn't do that, no chance.

    And you leave Sandro, Bassong, Gallas, and Rose off the bench: and go with all attacking players. Wow. Not a smart move.

    But anyways, welcome and keep posting. I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself as long as you keep posting!
