Proper, let me preface this by saying that I’m no Nostradamus. I is perhaps amazingly good wanting, extraordinarily witty and fiercely clever however inform the longer term, I can’t. Nonetheless, I’m going to make some light-hearted guesses on how subsequent season goes to go. If something, you need to use this as a information to wager in opposition to all my predictions, primarily based on how typically I get this type of stuff proper.
I had weekend, and we’ve got a four-day financial institution vacation on the finish of the month so I’m feeling glass half-full. With that in thoughts, I imagine Antonio Conte stays and is backed by previous baldy chops. Not with Billions clearly, however sufficient to influence Conte to remain on.
The Summer season
Placing my reasonable head on, the summer time transfer window isn’t all that inspiring, however we do make some respectable strikes and choices. Lucas Moura returns to Brazil and Steven Bergwijn is purchased by Ajax. The Mirror reviews that no transfer payment was paid, however that the Mayor of Amsterdam supplied a free bike journey across the canals of Amsterdam, one thing that Daniel Levy discovered too exhausting to show down.
When it comes to incoming gamers, Joe Rodon and Ben Davies are given lifetime contracts and assured beginning positions with all Welsh gamers lately being recognized as ‘stupidly good’.
Christian Eriksen returns residence, Dejan Kulusevski stays on a everlasting contract and Pau Torres is the marquee signing, becoming a member of in alternate for Gio Lo Celso and £34m.
The Premier League
Prediction – 3rd
We’re nonetheless Spurs, so we aren’t successful the title. The excellent news is that Roman Abramovich will need his £1.5b loan repaid by Chelsea. They’ll comply, nevertheless it’ll imply that they will’t convey any new gamers in. Thomas Tuchel will depart, being changed by a cut-price, dancing Alan Pardew.
That’ll depart us battling with Arsenal and United for 3rd and we’ll pip each. We’ll clearly take 6 factors off City and Conte will determine to play 6-4-0 in each video games in opposition to Liverpool, securing two 0-0 attracts. While we’ll lose to Bournemouth, Wolves and twice in opposition to United, we’ll do sufficient over the remainder of the season to get 3rd.
Our prime scorer can be Joe Rodon, with Ben Davies topping the assists chart. As a result of they’re Welsh and superior.
The FA Cup
Prediction – Win
Okay, I feel that so long as we keep away from Middlesboro, we’ll win the FA Cup. In equity, we’ll have a better run that Liverpool’s Champions League run this yr, however a win is a win, proper?
On our approach to the ultimate, we’ll beat Chester, Swansea, Morecombe, Barnsley and Arsenal earlier than assembly a star-studded Newcastle staff within the ultimate. Regardless of them having an assault comprising of Neymar, Mbappe and Chris Wooden, we’ll handle to carry them off and battle to a effectively fought 2-1 win at Wembley.
The League Cup
Prediction – 4th Round
Alas, I don’t suppose we’ll win the League Cup. We’ll navigate the third spherical however will valiantly exit within the 4th, shedding on penalties to Nottingham Forest.
Prediction – Not successful something
That is exhausting to essentially predict as we don’t know if we’ll be within the Champions League or Europa League. Both method, I don’t suppose we win both.
If we’re within the large boy’s competitors, I feel we make it out of the group however fall to a new-look Dortmund staff within the second spherical. We win the primary leg at residence. However get completely destroyed at Sign Iduna Park with their new ahead Sébastien Haller bagging a brace and knocking us out.
We’ll honest higher within the Europa however will get knocked out within the latter levels by Sevilla. As a result of everybody will get knocked out in opposition to Sevilla.
The key speaking factors for Spurs are:
- The 17-0 mixture wins in opposition to Chelsea within the league.
- Joe Rodon and Ben Davies sharing the Ballon d’Or.
- Arsenal admitting that they aren’t actually from north London and transferring again to Woolwich.
- The brand new Antonio Conte statue exterior the stadium.
- Daniel Levy’s new wig.
