Tottenham Hotspur supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are used to seeing their side slip out of contention for the Champions League qualification at the final hurdle and after last night’s draw at Chelsea hope remains that this year they can conquer their fears.
Despite a very decent first season in charge for Andre Villas-Boas, any possible failure to reach the prestige and benefit from the wealth of the Champions League could make for a difficult summer in the transfer market at White Hart Lane. Not only will Villas-Boas have less money to spend but his club will remain an unattractive proposition in comparison to Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United.
However whatever the league outcome, Spurs must still be productive during a summer which looks set to be crucial for Villas-Boaas he seeks to bring Champions League football back to the Lane next season while competing at the top end of the Premier League once more. Hanging onto Gareth Bale is vital but replacing deadwood, old legs and disappointing signings could be just as important.
We have now asked Spurs fans in the tavern for five players that they fully expect to see arriving at the club this summer.
