Buidling Dreams Together


Spurs surprise; what are they building for the future.

Could Tottenham’s trophy drought be coming to an end? Will the rebuilding of Tottenham be a success?

The rebuilding of Tottenham is in full force. With new signings, a beaming academy, and a fresh mentality; the white side of North London looks heavily optimistic that the drought could end in upcoming seasons.

Despite early exits from both the Carabao and FA Cup this current season, the club’s projection heads upward as they currently sit 5th in the table, a mere 2 points off 4th place. As the club fights for a Champions League spot, the fans can’t help but feel hungry already for August to arrive.


Through the managerial reigns of Mourinho, Conte and Nuno, the plays looked predictable. Finishes outside the ideal top 4 repeated one to many times, leading to the sacking of all mentioned managers. The introduction of a back four has revolutionized the young side. With Postecoglou implementing a new formation, with young, fresh centre backs dominating the pitch, the formation looks deadly. The use of inverted fullbacks has changed the Tottenham side, to many; it is unrecognizable.


The enactors of Postecoglou’s vision are young, with the average age of the starting 11 being 25 years old and the fresh blood looks hungry for silverware. Lloris’ replacement came in the form of Italian spider, Vicario. Whilst former duo Vertonghen and Alderweireld have finally found replicates through 22 year old Micky Van De Ven and Argentinian World Cup winner, Cristian Romero.

The new midfield three reeks of talent and potential. Yves Bissouma, Pape Sarr and FA Cup winner, James Maddison have successfully replaced their predecessors. Arguably the most important area of Postecoglou’s vision are his full backs, who have been unplayable this season so far. With 24 year old Pedro Perro on the right, and 21 year old wonderkid Destiny Udogie on the left, fans can see the managers vision coming to life.  

And departures of players that served the club well, such as Eric Dier, Lucas Moura and Hugo Lloris has paved the way for younger, hungrier replacements.


Premier League academies are never short of talent. With it leaking from every part of the country, Tottenham have had countless talents over the years. From the likes of Harry Kane to current midfielder, Oliver Skipp, the academy needed their next wonderkid to appear. With the under 18s of Spurs sitting 2nd in their respective league and the under 21s sitting 1st  in theirs, the future looks bright, with Tottenham not having to look far for their next breakthrough talent. Graduating names such as Jamie Donley and Alfie Dorrington are both proving their worth in the under 21s Premier League, whilst players such as Dane Scarlett have moved to playing with the first team.

Other youngsters such as Alfie Devine and Ashley Phillips are out on loan until the end of the current season (both at Plymouth Argyle in the Championship), and Tottenham will have them back improved and eager to prove themselves in the Premier League.

Though the road is long, and the rebuilding of Tottenham will take more than a year, the vibe around the club from fans is optimistic. Probably the most optimistic in a long time, with the future something to look forward to; rather than silently fear.
