New management at Spurs
Well, Nuno got sacked. If we look at the past 5 or 6 matches we could see there were some deep set incompatibility issues that were not fixable without something giving. The coach never really got to grips with the squad, the squad looked like they were playing trying to get him sacked, so we are where we are. I mentioned in my last post that Spurs would benefit from a 3-5-2 formation, Nuno never got around to playing this but I suspect his successor will opt for that.
There is some serious deadwood in that squad however that needs to be removed. Bergwijn is done, as is Doherty and Jack Clarke. Sessesgon is so injury prone he should be moved on also. Bryan Gil needs to go out on loan somewhere. Deli Alli and Lo Celso should be given until the summer then assessed, but my gut feeling is they are both done also and everyone would benefit from sale.
Conte is man touted as the new coach, and that would be a stark change indeed. Spurs under Nuno were the most sessile they’ve been in literal years. Conte makes his teams run, and run hard, run all day! This will mean more injuries and a lot of chop and changes required to accommodate that, the squad as it stands doesn’t seem that deep and would benefit from at least x3 new recruits also a great opportunity for some of the youngster academy players to step up and force their way into the A team.
