Tottenham Hotspur’s ‘Dangerous’ Attack

You could say Tottenham still haven’t had the 20+ goal a season they have lacked for YEARS! Last season Tottenham bought Soldado for £26  million from Valencia, But fans feel short changed what happened to the prolific striker who scored 59 goals in 101 games. Has this harmed them getting into champions league?

  • Jermain Defoe could only manage 1 goal in 14 games

  • Roberto Soldado 6 goals scored in 28 appearances

  • Emmanuel Adebayor 11 goals scored in 21 appearances

  • Harry Kane 3 goals scored in 10 appearances

Fact Gareth Bale is the last player to score more than 20+ goals in a season for Tottenham scoring  21  Premier League goals in the  2012-2013 season.
This is where the problem lies for Tottenham they haven’t replaced the 21 goals and thought signing Soldado would get the goals for them,  Been a honest man i also  believed the same. What this has done as it has many other season previous is cost us our top 4 ,For example in the 2013-2014 season we scored  55 goals conceded 51 leaving us with a goal difference of 4.

“If you put those goals and assists onto our season I think it would be a different complexion. We could do with that this year. If we put those goals on the pitch we’re probably fighting for the title.” – Tim Sherwood speaking to (Stuart Appleby, The Telegraph,17th April 14)

Table shows Tottenham poor goal difference, Compared to other top 6 teams.

What do we need in my opinion strikers are not that expensive if you look around Atletico Madrid, Porto and Dortmund have been finding quality strikers for years below I list the fees and stats compared to Soldado.

  • Adrian Ramos(Dortmund 1st July free transfer) Scored 16 goals in 30 games for Hertha BSC, This record makes things worse he
    ​wasn’t even playing for a top German club and has outscored all of our strikers most of his goals coming from inside the box.
  • Jackson Martinez (Porto) Scored  20 goals in 29 league games, 3 goals in 12 appearances came from playing left striker in a 4-3-3
  • Christian Benteke( Aston Villa)
    ​Scored 10 goals in 24 appearances and was injured half way in the season​
  • Luca Toni (Verona) Scored 20 goals in 34 appearances
  • Ciro Immobile ( Dortmund 1st July) scored 22 goals in 28 appearances for Torino  (​ALL STATS FROM (whoscored.com​).
Something is wrong when Luca Toni scores more then you at age 37!!!​
Tottenham need to address this the goal difference Tottenham had of +4 was the worse in the top 4, With strikers at the ready in the world cup will Tottenham invest?
 In a club statement at the end of the season Daniel Levy said
“Our focus is to continue to invest in and develop the squad. We shall not look to a summer of major upheaval, but rather to strengthen in key positions to play the style of football for which we are famous​”​ Daniel Levy (www.thfc.com)
​So who is available and would Tottenham pay the asking rate for a top scorer? Logan Holmes from Fansided reports tha​t Tottenham want Lukaku, He has a decent record scoring 30 goals in 64 appearances for his two loan clubs.But is he a long term prospect or someone who can fire straight away? For me the striker we need is Jackson Martinez his movement is top draw and is a 100% poacher 35 million we would have to pay but we wouldn’t regret paying that money for someone who has scored  46 goals in 60 games since 2012
