Discussing this with my newly-minted Spurs fan roommate - it appears to me that Spurs' long range plan hinges on the midfield. They have 4 highly touted midfield players who are all 20 or younger (Boateng, Lennon, Taarabt, Bale), and appear to have beaten back some pretty big clubs for their signatures. With their 4 forwards all being between 23-27, it seems like they're set up to be a pretty competitive team in 2-3 years. The question being, can they hold on to their 4 starlets, and will Jol be around to reap the benefits of these signings? Also debatable about whether you can put Boateng and Taarabt in the middle together...so the other question is, who do you think should play the holding role for Spurs in the future. Comments, questions, concerns?
