Football Manager players, go and start a new career with Tottenham Hotspur – you won’t regret it. Well, you might regret it if you are an Arsenal fan but that is one negative worth overlooking. Tottenham have enough quality to stay competitive but also need work – and that helps to keep gamers interested. In terms of the Premier League, they are probably the best team to take control of.
Follow in Mauricio Pochettino’s footsteps as you try to take Tottenham back to the summit of English football. It is no easy feat; the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool will all be tough nuts to crack at the top of the table. There are a few advantages to selecting Spurs over their close rivals, though – we have discussed a few of these below:
TALENTED AND ORGANISED AT THE BACK
Defensively, Spurs are stacked. Kyle Walker’s departure to City last summer has hindered their Football Manager unit somewhat but Kieran Trippier is improving and Danny Rose is still just 27 years old.
Punters will fancy Spurs to challenge for Premier League glory next season and the 10/11 price for Tottenham to finish in the top four should be snapped up. In your first year at the helm, a top four berth should be your primary objective.
‘ONE SEASON WONDER’ KANE IS GOING NOWHERE
Harry Kane is Tottenham’s star man in real life and he should be your star man on Football Manager as well. At just 24 years old, time is on his side and he can be the focal point for your team for the best part of a decade.
Kane, now the 7/4 favourite to win the Golden Boot at the World Cup this summer after scoring five goals in two group stage fixtures, is already one of the best strikers on the game and he should flourish as your leader in attack.
START OF A DYNASTY ERA?
Winning the Premier League title in your first three years is a realistic enough objective and the likes of Kane, Heung-Min Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen offer you the chance to build a dynasty era at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have splashed the cash to keep Kane and Pochettino at the club and a first top-flight crown since 1961 beckons. Football bet tips for today won’t include Tottenham on a regular basis but Spurs are heading in the right direction towards a maiden Premier League title.
PERFECT CLUB FOR THE FM NOVICE AND AFICIONADO
Whether this is your first time playing FM or if you are a seasoned veteran, Spurs tick all the right boxes to give you a realistic, enjoyable gameplay experience. Tottenham could be the team to beat in 2018/19 and Football Manager users will be looking to take the north London side to the next level.
Winning the Premier League title is a dream for every Spurs fan and the blueprint is there for this FM side to go on and dominate England’s top flight for some time.
