With the strike force Tottenham Hotspur have you'd think they have the rest of the Premier League running scared wouldn't you??
With a strikeforce consisting of Jermain Defore, Robbie Keane, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko, Spurs should have a realistic chance of making a Europa League place this season.
The key word there: should.
Let's have a look at their strike rates last season.
Jermain Defoe - 13 goals in 29 appearances for both Portsmouth and Tottenham.
Robbie Keane - 12 goals in 35 appearances for both Liverpool and Tottenham.
Peter Crouch - 16 goals in 48 appearances for Portsmouth.
Roman Pavlyuchenko - 14 goals in 26 apperances for Tottenham.
None of them leave a lot to be desired.
Although Harry Redknapp has acquired a strikeforce that can be rotated and changed when deemed fit. Manchester United showed it could be done with their elusive four of Cole, Yorke, Sheringham and Solskjaer during their treble winning season and a contributing factor toward this was the lack of ego these players possessed. The same could be said about Tottenham's striking quartet.
It is refreshing to see this, whereas further north in the blue side of Manchester, it should be interesting to see the opposite effect, where big superstars could be left on the bench one week and throw a tantrum.
This is where the manager plays a role. Veterans such as Ferguson and Redknapp know how to handle such players where inexperienced managers may fail at such a task.
I would expect either Defoe or Keane to partner Crouch or Pavlyuchenko as the season goes on.
Keane and Defore provide pace whereas Crouch and Pavlyuchenko provide power, a great combination if used effectively.
My first choice for a front line at White Hart Line would be Crouch and Keane. I feel both would score more regularly given a run in the team than the other pair. Crouch has shown at Anfield that he has what it takes to make it at the top (why Liverpool sold him is beyond me!) and Robbie Keane, prior to his move to Liverpool, was scoring for fun alongside Berbatov.
Spurs fans will be hoping that now the front line has started to take shape for the coming campaign, the goals will come.
Like I said earlier, they should...
