Mauricio Pochettino: New signings must be able to challenge Spurs stars


Will Tottenham Hotspur begin the new season with a victory or will Premier League "new boys" Newcastle United haunt Pochettino's men once more? However it will be his decision whether to sell Rose if a suitable offer is made.

Apart from demanding that Spurs sign top players, Danny Rose also suggested that he and his teammates were underpaid and declared that he would like to leave the club to "play up North". Sign up to play now - before it's too late!

In short, Spurs fans are bracing themselves for another transfer window that could go all the way to deadline day, and are fearful of another Moussa Sissoko-esque panic buy.

Pochettino said that he has accepted Rose's apology and he reiterated that the club would sign players before the close of the transfer window.

Spurs, who finished runners-up to champions Chelsea last season, are the only top-flight club yet to spend any money this summer on transfer fees, although Pochettino expects that to change.

Major champs Spieth and Koepka finish in style
The 35 year old from Groves got into the year's last major by winning the Barracuda Championship this past Sunday in Reno, NV. Stroud made the turn at even par and then birdied 10 and 11 before his 20 foot putt on 18 sealed his first round score of 68.

"That is not a joke".

With the likes of Hugo Lloris, Jan Vertonghen, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli as well as the aforementioned Alderweireld, Dier and Kane, Tottenham still have an impressive side - but Martin Keown believes that it's actually playmaker Christian Eriksen who is Tottenham's key player heading into the new season. "I don't think it's a matter to joke about because with some of the worldwide players today, maybe one or two years ago, none of us knew them very well", Pochettino said. "For me it's in the past, the situation". "But it's ok - look now!" "I definitely feel we need to bolster the squad".

Tottenham Hotspur start the new Premier League season with a tricky trip to St James' Park to take on Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon. No, no, no. I'm exhausted.

With one of the best squads in the country, featuring talented England players Harry Kane and Dele Alli, Pochettino's hopes of ending the club's wait for a first league title since 1961 rest on finding an antidote to the Wembley hoodoo. "The moment he apologised we moved on and it was the past". If you have two or three new players, or five or six or eight, it doesn't matter. We were focused from the beginning of pre-season to challenge and try again to prepare ourselves to compete in a very tough league.
