Goalkeepers, Backs, Defensive and Central Midfield – How Long On Their Contracts, Who Should Come and Who Should Go?

As the summer 2018 transfer window draws to a close, fans are restless about transfer news for the coming season. We seem resigned to losing Toby. We seem happy that some youngsters are coming along, such as Luke Amos. There appears to be some consensus that what we really need now is some pace and creativity in the final third to help give us a squad that has depth.

What of the longer term? Should we wait and scrabble about at the end of each transfer window or should we be buying now with an eye to the future? To buy we would need to sell.

What are the club’s ambitions? If it is to win the Premier League and the Champions League, do we have the squad to do those things?

With all this in mind, and looking at the contract expiry dates below, when should we be looking for replacements and additions and who should we be looking to buy and sell in the short and long term?

Today we are looking at goalkeepers, backs, defensive and central midfield. Next time we will look at attacking midfield and strikers.

Brian has been a Spurs supporter from around 1960, so was there for the double, the FA Cup in 1962 and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1963. He admits to having cried when Spurs lost to Benfica in the 1962 European Cup Semi-final and to times when he could weep when watching Spurs for the past few years (but for very different reasons). Brian has been lucky enough to see greats such as Jimmy Greaves, Pat Jennings, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne. During the 60s, 70s and 80s Spurs won at least one domestic trophy and one European trophy each decade (with those wonderful all white strip floodlit games). It has taken Brian more than 20 years to realise that may take a while to come back, but hope lives on.
