Maybe when we move into the new stadium we will be able to break out of the nearly-men cycle and prove what a good team we are, but there's still a long way to go. I don't think losing Walker damages the chances of that happening, though. Walker is very good, don't get me wrong, but we managed all of last season without Danny Rose at the other flank and I'm confident that Trippier can step in and do the job should Walker leave. And like I said, we're also looking at new RBs in case Trippier picks up a knock, and have young Kyle Walker-Peters as a prospect there who looks very promising.
Pickford is good and has future England #1 potential (not that that's saying much) but yeah, that's a little steep. Good signing player wise, but a bit of an overpay.
I'm not sure, I think even playing at Wembley you guys will still push on. All of your key guys are proven commodities who have done it for at least 2-3+ years now. The experience of playing in Wembley last year should only help Tottenham adjust too. I'm saying all of this before the crazy shenanigans of the transfer window, after that who knows really.
I'm confident too that you guys will manage without Walker, I was just questioning his motives on why he would leave. If it's for the money then fair enough to him, if you lot can fetch that price too then good on you guys.
