Mabbutt: Crucial summer for Spurs


White Hart Lane - Header

Tottenham legend Gary Mabbutt believes that this summer could prove to be crucial if the club are to build on this season’s top four finish.

“The board and manager will sit down and start to put their plans in place for next season. We have to use this qualification as a stepping stone to move forward,” Mabbutt told the Ham & High.

“Tottenham will want to be in that top four every season. I’m sure we are doing everything we can to give us that opportunity.

“Those top four spots have been dominated by the same four teams for a number of years, and to break that monopoly is a massive achievement.

“Harry is a very good man manager of his players, and is able to get the best out of them. Under [Juande] Ramos the players weren’t reaching their full potential – Harry has given those players the belief and confidence in themselves, and they have responded to that.

“The whole team has grown in stature, instead of having a team of individuals, its now a team with a great team spirit.”

  1. i belive Sir Gary Mabbutt to be right on the money it will be a very tough summer to recruit the type of player that we need to take us to the next level. Yes we must invest in the playing squad but at the same safeguard the future of our beautiful club. I belive the full backs area of the team need to be addressed if GB isto play left midfield

  2. You hit the nail on head Carl. Full back area will definately need improving as Benny is inconsistant, Charlie is too slow, the 2 Kyle's no experience and Hutton, less said the better.

  3. disagree… would be looking for a backup to bae, hes only inconsistent when played out of position. Harry doesent mention kaboul as a cb so im guessing hes cover for charlie.
    Hard to think of cm's available that would improve us more then luka, wilson, hudds. Sandro on his way (no Idea how he will adapt but having gomes there will help him settle) Its all about strikers for me… If only we could have Torres! torres for keane and pav? Not even the fat spanish waiter is that stupid!

  4. bang on brian- b.a.e. is far better than anything we've had since hughton on that side.
    band on matt- statistiacally, out best strikers are pavlyuchenko and keane (wtf?!) we need to address this. the icelander must go. he doesn't do anything except be fat. and he's got a comb over.

  5. deffinetly need new striker but i think kaboul has shown he is beter than charlie at right back just incase we dont invest in one
