Nathan put together this really excellent video about why we struggle against the narrow low block and some potential solutions. If you listen to our podcast, The Extra Inch (Spurs Podcast), you'll know that Nathan is convinced that we are a dribbly winger (or two) away from being a hell of a team. I'm struggling to convince myself that Ange agrees.

We're just over halfway through the season, and I wanted to reflect on the season so far, and what it's meant to me and then think forward to next season in terms of squad building and transfer planning. So this will be half 'heart' and half 'head'.

We went into the summer knowing that there were some critical areas of the team and squad requiring improvement. The appointment of Ange Postecoglou changed these a little, understanding that the new system required specific characteristics and skill sets. For me the key areas for focus were goalkeeper, centre-back, creative midfielder and - particularly if Kane were to leave - a forward. I think we’ve managed to tackle all of these priorities fairly effectively. What we've really struggled to do, though, is add depth -- more on that later, but broadly: it's good that we're only playing one game a week, as we are going to need to stay fit and injury-free.

I'm so pleasantly surprised by how much the team has picked up Ange-ball. I honestly thought it would take several months for us to successfully transition from the dismal shit that Conte was trotting out to a modern positional play model, complete with intriguingly high defensive line, intense high pressing, inverted full-backs and a single pivot in midfield.
