While the focus was on England’s game with Germany yesterday, there was one interesting story that almost disappeared under the media radar. Roberto Soldado’s comments over his start to life as a Spurs player have been documented but they are certainly worth taking another look at as the club prepares to return to league action.

The Spaniard’s overall record reads OK with six goals in 12 matches but, as the press will highlight, only one of those strikes has come in the Premiership during open play. However, as Spurs fans we should at least be grateful that we now have a single, designated penalty taker capable of hitting the target.

“I have scored six goals but I would like to score many more,’ Soldado said on Spurs TV.”I am a realist and I know that on the pitch I am not happy with everything.

“I have scored decisive goals that have won matches, they might have been penalties, but I want more and the manager wants more and that is what I want to give to the fans.”

Roberto also felt that at this stage, he isn’t quite linking up with others as he would have hoped.

“I am not combining with my team-mates how I would like but I know I am very close.

“I’m striving to get to top form and play at 100 per cent. I am convinced that I am almost there.

“I don’t want to stop scoring goals, that’s why Tottenham signed me. I’m not 100 per cent but the manager has put his faith in me end he is giving me minutes. Scoring more goals for this team is my target.”

Soldado’s pens have sealed nine points so far this season so he is contributing but what is the key for Spurs to get more out of their first choice striker?

  1. Tacticaly spures will low to create goal scoering chances after 100 million spent in summer spure not produce avb porto time (mountinho gaurin fernando) midfield &as well as injuryis currunt season spures fully low to left winger and left back(rose,chadli) out of injury and right side record signing lamela need to first team after starting goal scoer against sheriff he is man always crete attak triky passes to play fully on 90minute on ground to better , townsed still impressive need to team work assist and goal scoer plus triky passes to attempt to goal to soldado and team he need to learning more on ground stats and attaking passinh theory / striker is not big problem for spure soldado is perfect for attak but tactics and creativity for men

  2. Getting the ball to him in the right areas wouldnt hurt. This slow build up shit has to stop .Plus Bobby needs to not get impatient and stay in the box. The Spurs midfielders should all have a target of trying get Bobby some clear cut chances during the game.Its great Andros has some acclaim now but he should be building his own assist stats up and let the Gareth Bale world beater shit come naturally, right now we need goals and attacking confident, and getting our expensive no 9 on the score sheet could do that.

  3. Solution for spure more investment on 6 singing (sigurdsson adabayer defoe demblele sandro gomes and possible lennon or chadli on loan)sell 1.fabio contrao or alvaro pereira 2.xabi alonso or fernando rages or pirlo 3 .banega or cabaye or honda 4.hulk or tello or gaitan or di maria 5 hernandez or benteke in 4-3-3 systeam lloris walker chiriches vertoghen contrao xabi alonso paulinho banega lameal hulk soldado sub..friedel, naughton, holtby, erikson, chdli, hernandez, capoue, dawson

  4. Wingers need to play more on there own wings. Invert ion is ok but not for the whole match. Soldado is making good runs but our midfield aren’t quick enough to play the pass. Sandro if fit should start every game. And would be nice to see ade get a look in one last chance.
