    Spurs are actually a promising little team. Easy to mock players like Lamela but he could easily take off next season and look like a £30m player, the youve got Eriksen, Capoue, Dembele etc and they have a proper midfield. Top GK, decent CBs as well so they really need just wing backs and Adebayor to play to potential for them to be right up there. Dont really rate Pochettino though, at all.

    Van Gaal could well be a disaster. Many Utd fans have convinced themselves that the problem this year was Moyes and that a few transfers will get them back where they were when they need about 7 first team players to do that. That and the fact Van Gaal is a nutcase who alienates everyone around him given enough time.

    I'd say 4 at minimum. Your defence has been decimated by retirements/leaving players/inadequate players/injuries this season. You need 2/3 first team players there alone.

    I'd say you need a new CM or two, a winger, a CB or two and a LB/RB. At minimum.

    He said first team though. De Gea, Mata, Rooney and RVP are definitely good enough (even if one is slightly out of position). Carrick is good enough for another year. Evans is competent when alongside an experienced CB and Rafael has shown he's good enough and will improve.

    So that's

    De Gea
    Rafael CB Evans LB
    Carrick CM
    Winger Mata Rooney
    RVP

    And we could get away with playing Januzaj/Nani on that wing, so it's 3 or 4 first teamers. I agree we need maybe 2 more for depth, although the youngsters could provide that.

    No one is breaking 90 points any time soon, the league is way way way too competitive for that any more.
    Nahh, it's really not.

    City got 86 and that was after an unreasonably horrible away record for half the season.

    Liverpool got 84 and that was without a defence.

    I'd go out on a limb and say that someone of this year's top three will reach 90 points next season.

    I'll make the opposite prediction. The winner of the 2014/15 PL will get less points than this years winner.

    90+ points has only been achieved 6 times in the entire PL era. There is a big difference between 86 and 90 in terms of overall season consistency even if it's only 4 points in total.

    Everyone and their dog wants him though! Can't see Arsene being interested in a bidding war against teams with limitless funds.

    To finish with at least 90 points, a team can only afford to drop points in 8 games. I really don't see it. There's a genuine top 7 team now and the lower sides know all about parking the bus.

    Apparent price agreed for Morata is 8m however Juventus are said to want to compete with us for signing him?

    Ehh he hasn't been spectacular, but Wenger probably sees more in him or that he'll develope into a much better player in the future. We have the perfect midfield/system to help and ease off some pressure off his back if he were to play for us up front but even if we did sign him I don't see him replacing Giroud in this first year.
