Spurs Fans' Season Preview: The Top Three Beckons If AVB Can Get Llorente

It'll be another period of transition for Spurs, but I trust AVB to take us forward. If he can bring in a top front man, hopefully Fernando Llorente, then we'll be challenging for the title again.

Spurs Pre season: Good, bad or ugly?

Good, despite the defeat to Valencia. Players look to have adjusted to Andre Villas-Boas’ system and five of the six games unbeaten is something to be positive about.

Hopes for the season:

A top three finish, more importantly, ahead of Arsenal.

Fears for the season:

The red tops being right and a return to mid-table mediocrity following the sacking of Harry Redknapp.

Absolute bare minimum you’ll accept

Top six finish; it will be another transitional year for Spurs, but it’s keen to stress that patience is needed. Everything won’t fall into place at once.

Fixture you’re most looking forward to?

Chelsea at home on October 20th; the first London derby of the season.

Got the right manager?

100%. The best man to take the club forward following Redknapp’s sacking.

By Christmas you’ll be…

In or around the top four.

Player you’d most like to sign?

Fernando Llorente. Spurs desperately need a striker and he has proven time and time again that he is one of Europe’s best front-men.

Which player should we look out for?

Tom Carroll made his senior debut for Spurs last season in the Europa League, but was shipped out on loan for the remainder of the season with Derby County. The young midfielder has featured heavily in pre-season under Villas-Boas and given the chance, has showcased his capability to the watching world.

Which player would you love to ditch?

Jermaine Jenas – How he hasn’t gone already is beyond every fan.

Opposition hate figure?

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere.

Tell us something we don’t know about your club?

Under the White Hart Lane pitch knitting the roots of the grass together, there is enough nylon twine to stretch right around the world.

What won’t happen this season?

We won’t win the league.

Favourite chant?

Oh When The Spurssssssss, Go Marching Innnnnnnn

Where will you finish?

Top six.

Any other news?

The Northumberland Development Project is beginning to pick up pace, as Spurs continue buying, and subsequently knocking down, the surrounding buildings.
