Erik Lamela: £30m signing a rare sighting at Spurs

Erik Lamela: £30m signing a rare sighting at Spurs

Bruce takes an injury-ravaged squad to the capital, and he admits that he looks at Spurs counterpart Andre Villas Boas' squad with some jealousy.

Danny Graham, Sone Aluko, Allan McGregor and potentially Robbie Brady will all miss the White Hart Lane match.

Villas-Boas spent much of the 100million euros Spurs received for selling Gareth Bale to Real Madrid on a raft of internationals, with Erik Lamela - signed for £30m - rarely getting game-time.

"They're certainly a challenger," said Bruce. "Spurs are now one of the big teams in the division as far as I'm concerned.

"Whether they are good enough to win it, that's a big call for them because they've got to beat Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal...but they've got a chance. In my opinion, they must have.

"The money they've been able to get in for Gareth Bale has bought five or six top, top players - the likes of Roberto Soldado, Christian Eriksen, Paulinho - it's endless. Then there's Lamela, that's £30m worth that we haven't really seen yet, it's a really strong squad of players.

"You can only applaud what they've done. They lost Gareth Bale, a wonderful footballer, but as a squad and as a team there's an argument they're even better.

"They've got better players than us, let's be honest. They've assembled a really good squad over the years but that's not to say we can't go there and get a result."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
