    1. We will challenge for the title again.
    2. Lamela will be back to his best.
    3. Janssen will have a decent season.
    4. Winks will play himself into the England set up.
    5. KWP and Onomah will step up.

    I believe the above reasons are why we also won't be doing much business in the transfer window.

    1. Winks to make the 2018 World Cup squad
    2. Lamela to be sold or retire by this time next year
    3. One of Dele or Danny to be this years Walker and kick up a stink in order to force a move this time next year
    4. Ross Barkley to be widely recognised as a great signing for the club by the vast majority of fans, regardless of what we may eventually pay for him
    5. KWP and/or Onomah to be this years Winks and be considered genuine bench/rotation options rather than 'youngsters'

    Oh, and Citeh to win the league, with or without signing Sanchez

    Apologies....a combination of merlot and a sense of humour ......I find both an essential part of being a football team supporter. :D

    Bold predictions

    Spurs:
    1. We complete the season without any players picking up injuries.
    2. Vertonghen scores Premier League goals.
    3. Sissoko is a revelation at RB, but Tripper gets the nod for the Champions League final.
    4. Lamela returns and is amazing, coming on in the second game of the season against Chelsea and scoring twice and starting regularly after that.
    5. Harry Kane scores a double hat-trick in the Premier League. Let's say against Newcastle on day 1 to start the season in uncharacteristically productive form. Well done Harry!

    Non-Spurs:
    1. Mourinho is fired at Christmas with United in 15th and Barry Fry takes over for the rest of the season. He guides Man U to second place. Then he dies.
    2. John Terry has a tricky first game for Villa when he is bundled to the ground and urinated on by a number of players. The ref waves play-on and everyone agrees that it was probably fair.
    3. Suarez sparks intense debate after biting another player's penis. Players all take Suarez's side and force an immediate rule change to allow and even encourage penis biting. The Champions League final is decided by a tense penalty penis-bite-off. Spurs beat Barcelona but Suarez is given a special award for his services to football and the new format is a huge success and everyone agrees that it is brilliant.
    4. Ross Barkley joins Liverpool for 60 million pounds and is their player of the season as they finish 6th.
    5. Norwich City replace their first team with actual canaries. The experiment fails as they are relegated after picking up just 12 points (three wins and three draws). The club's sporting director, Stuart Webber, steps down saying "we knew it was a risk, but we felt the time was right and the team was ready. In hindsight it was poor judgement on my part." Club legend Chris Sutton is quoted as saying "The birds have to take some of the blame for this, but in the end the manager is responsible for the tactics". After the final game Club Ambassador Stephen Fry publicly kills all the birds with his bare hands and teeth. He is utterly charming.

    Bold predictions...

    Our form at Wembley will be fine, albeit after a shakey start.
    Harry Kane won't score until October, but will still win the golden boot.
    We will win the Champions League.
    We will finish outside the top four.
    When asked why he thinks we were able to win the CL but still finish 5th, Poch will reply "This is football, no?"

    1. The Wembley curse continues and we finish outside the top 6, replaced by Everton who challenge for the title themselves as the rest of the top teams struggle with their European commitments.

    2. Harry Kane still hits 40+ and wins the European golden shoe and is nominated for European Player of teh season and then the Ballan D'or

    3. Dele struggles with multiple suspensions and scores under 10 for the season.

    4. Harry Winks gets linked to Barcelona by the end of the season.

    5. Nah fuck 1 and 3. We win the league and Dele winds PFA POTY

    OK here goes:

    - Harry will score 35+ in all competitions
    - Harry Winks to be nominated Young Player of the Year, but loses to Deli
    - Spurs finish in the top 3. Start average at Wembley but end up making it a fortress.
    - After a tense FA Cup run we smash the goons in the Final and finally win a trophy.
    - Vincent scores 10+ league goals and over 15 for the season, and a brace in the cup final.

    1. The season is going to start slowly and the doom mongers will come out asking "Why we didn't sign Neymar!" and some idiot will start a thread on Pochettino's future.
    2. Then we'll win the league
    3. Get to the semi's of the Champions League
    4. Winks will play for England.
    5. Janssen will prove to be a success.

    If we have seen the best of Lamela I'm not sure him getting back to it would be much use to us.

    He certainly was showing more promise before the injury but I would hope for improvement really.
