New Players, New Formation ?

Morning All..... could be an interesting couple of days. Fingers crossed Levy can get these deals done.

Rather than focus on Bale (We all know what he's about) just wondering if the Reguilon signing might bring about a change in formation ? We all know Doherty is more of a wing back with 3 CBs & I can't see Reguilon not playing. We all know Davies is one of Jose's Favs and many of us have said for a while that he's a better Left sided CB in a 3 than he is a LB in a 4. I Guess the one obvious casualty of all this is Sess (Maybe he'll go on loan ??)

If these deals happen & it looks like we'll get a cheapie striker from somewhere, the remaining issues are CB (suspect Jose thinks we have enough) & CM creativity (Much rests on GLC and NDombele, if he's not involved in a swap for the Inter CB ?)

Perhaps its finally time to shift away from 4231 into a more fluid 352.. Clearly there's gonna be a big responsibility on PEH to show the defensive discipline we all hope he's capable of

Bench.....Hart, Moura, Bergwijn, Winks, Sissoko, Tanganga, Sess, Sanchez, New Striker

Not sure if they have a Future..... The Big ????.. NDombele/ Dele (would prefer to keep both but might need to raise some cash from somewhere).... SELL.. Lamela,.Rose, Aurier, Foyth (none of who'm are gonna generate much)

Yeah - my excitement over these signings is dampened every time I remember who's in charge of them.

Look on the bright side mate - when Mourinho fails to get a tune out of these players and Spurs are bottom half scraping a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace, he'll have to go. And with a new, attacking manager, the old Spurs could come back.

Spending money on good players just increases the pressure on Mourinho to succeed. Nowhere to hide if performances don't improve.

I still reckon 433 is the way to go. It doesn't mesh with Mourinho's dour playstyle, but with a good manager who likes playing possession football with offensive wing backs, this would be facking fantastic:

....................... Lloris .......................

Doherty - Tanganga - Alderweireld - Reguilon

...................... Hojbjerg ......................
........... Ndombele .. Lo Celso ...........

........ Bale ........ Kane ........ Son ........
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yep that team with a new manager job done

Love that 11 more than any other but fear Jose would never play it. I fear we would be too vulnerable on the couter with both FBs liking to play high up the pitch and neither NDombele or GLC offering much protection..... PEH would get overun in MF. Thats the team you play against relegation fodder coming to the lane not to get beat..... Liverpool, City, United, Wolves, Leicester would rip that team to shreds in a high scorer

this is good, allows subs to slot in nicely and know their job. as much as I like 5 at the back. if one full back gets injured we sont have like for like replacements. I prefer a system that all players understand....including the bench
