Club legend brands Postecoglou’s Tottenham brave and aggressive

By The Boy -

This season at Spurs has been anything but dull. Ange Postecoglou’s initial Premier League run was nothing shy of pure entertainment, and the loose talk was that the Aussie could mount a challenge to win the title. Nobody had a bad word to say about the side that was always on the front foot, playing predominantly short, sharp passing with the emphasis on scoring.

Unfortunately, injuries and ill-discipline sent Spurs into a rough run, with just one win in six games.

Former Tottenham star Robbie Keane was all about finding the back of the net during his illustrious spell in N17, which saw the Irishman make 197 appearances and score 80 times for the Lilywhites. Speaking to sports betting site Betway, Keane thinks Tottenham could still do very well, but Big Ange would need some help.

“I think they can still sneak into that top four. The way Ange Postecoglou wants his team to play – by being brave and aggressive – is the kind of football that I like to see and would love to have been a part of. If Spurs are going to get back into those Champions League spots, then they probably need to buy a striker in January. They’re scoring plenty of goals, but eventually, they are going to need a No. 9.”

The sale of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich seemed not to affect Spurs too much, but this was only the case for fifteen games, but last time anyone looked, a season consisted of thirty-eight matches. Daniel Levy blew some £50 million on Richarlison, but only against Newcastle United so far this season has the Brazilian looked like a genuine threat.

Who Postecoglou might want to step in to help out up front is anyone’s guess. One name linked has been Brentford’s Ivan Toney. The hitman is currently serving a ban imposed by the FA due to betting-related charges, so Toney’s availability on the pitch will be limited until mid-January 2024.

Back in August, Toney changed his agency, switching to CAA Stellar agency, which is well-known for representing some of football’s biggest names, including the likes of Jack Grealish, Eduardo Camavinga, and former Tottenham superstar Gareth Bale. The switch of agency itself might indicate that the player is planning a move.

Robbie Keane warns that bringing the right man could be tricky in the winter.

“It won’t be easy to get a top striker in January, though, because teams generally don’t want to sell. The January transfer window is probably more important for clubs closer to the relegation zone, as bringing one or two players in to freshen up the team in a couple of positions can make a huge difference.”

So, Ivan Toney‘s unusual situation might work out quite nicely for Spurs.
